PostSubject: GearScoreLite problem   Mon Apr 26, 2010 12:55 pm

Everyone seems to have problem with it, both in the lite and the normal version when someone have gearscore of at least 6000. So I had a look at it this morning, the code was horrible to say the least...but I fixed the error (from a combination of looking at the code and the comments of people who tried to find a solution to it at Curse.com). Couldn't figure a way to upload it here though...well, I can always email it if someone needs it.

I couldn't resist but add a warning about how useless GearScore is when the addon is loaded. Then also I added a rank based on the players name; goat, lizzard, turtle and so on. No matter what gear you get, the rank shown is based on your name... :-)

Now the addon feels a lot more useful!

Damn it, appears? It certainly is! I'm not really a fan though, his code was terrible to say the least...now I had to send him a PM too, what are the chances he will reply in the near future?

Gearscore is overrated.

GearScore IS overrated, so was that a yes or a not that we can host the addon here?

(actually, with this Svarv-remix you have info screen at startup telling how inaccurate the GearScore calculations are, the bug fixed, the new NameRank and the missing /gs reset - all of this in one Svarvish unresistable package)

Those that use GearScore or GearScoreLite will get a popup error whenever a player passes by that have GearScore > 5999. When the addon was released 6 months ago, this never happend. Now it is common to happen in areas like Dalaran. So those using the original addons must be rather tired of that by now...hence the bug fix...

In Curse.com all recent comments are about people that try to get rid of the popup error. I think with a release now, I have a fair chance to get a few thousend downloads. :-)

The originial author does not seem active.

Edit: the purpose is to have them switch from original GearScore or GearScoreLite to this version.

Yes you can, but include the name of the original creator aswell.

I never removed the original authors name, so yes it is still in there in the source code. How do I do it then, mail you the zip file? I can't seem to find any "upload file"-option in this forum (only host image, and it refused .zip extension).

Here is the most recent layout I choosed to use for the application. Each of the GearScore, ItemLevel and NameRank can be shown or hidden with /gs score, /gs level or /gs namerank.

Seems that my most recent char, the healing shaman, have the best GS of all my chars (the rogue is slightly lower, but have better DPS somehow and my healing druid slightly higher). Thats wicked. :/

Thanks for helping out Daidrax, I thought there was an option to host it in the forum itself thats why I asked. In a closed forum thread, not that many will download it. Well, best would be if I get approved in Curse.com I guess since thats the place where most people would download wow-addons from anyway.

Current status in curse.com can be seen at GearScoreLiteSvarv...

Btw, I just have to add one more thing. NameRank is far superior way to determine if someone is a good player or not. When you go with a PUG and someone turns out to be a Ruby Wasp, just vote to kick em. You don't have time for such players, trust me on this one. Evil or Very Mad
