had to do some magic to get my previous install working on my new windows 10 install
stupid Secure Preferences file

Jul 22 2016 15:00 UTC
now... i only have to completely remove and prevent windows 10 from installing a broken update for my second monitor...
a broken color profile... since windows vista
thanks microsoft for forcing updates
so... fun for me while i fix this issue

this makes catching pokemon so much simpler, since Niantic broke the nearby tracker

damn directx, had to install the DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)
i assumed that directx was installed by default on windows 10...

Only a specific version, if it was compiled against an older one you don't have you need to install it

@queicherius ouch

who created that mess that is directx? :P
i suppose that's also the reason why steam forces a directx install on every game
Christian
@zeeZ
Jul 22 2016 19:02 UTC
there's a rule somewhere that no two games may use the same directx version

Does anyone remember what counts as "Guild Leader" for the APIs? Was it just the first rank? D:

TBH gitlab looks better and better with every release they make. Now if they could only have the community too. :(
(8.10 is what I am referring to)

sadly they're adding bloat to it though
eh, if you're running a local install you can pretty easily gut out the stuff you don't need
and the effort required for that (both setup and maintenance) isn't very bad -- they have pretty solid documentation for performing routine updates
(though all my experience running such an install is 3 years out of date now -- I can't imagine it's gotten worse)

(just out of interest, are the special action skills in the API?)
(like sloth-drop-poison and sabetha-throw-bomb)
TIL: the protective thing you get from Xera is an ethereal combofield
no they're not
I don't anticipate adding them -- figuring out, programatically, which skills are player-accessible is incredibly difficult
though realistically it may be feasible to have a whitelist system similar to the items/etc wherein every time a player uses a skill not in the API it's added to a whitelist queue
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 22 2016 23:11 UTC
its not of high value, its nice-to-have at best indeed
I dunno; I think I'd add /v2/races first, then make sure that between that and /v2/professions all skills were enumerable
and then for each additional skill somehow note where it came from (e.g., /v2/items could show which skills the item's transform granted)
the bit I'm trying to avoid is requiring applications to enumerate /v2/skills because that's an entire mess
(and -- to illustrate my hesitation -- some tonics randomly choose a transform from a list of transforms and each transform has a different skill set -- so ideally we'd have /v2/transforms)
it'd be a pretty large piece of work

sounds like a nice problem to solve
ehem
I just wanted to know skill facs about these raid skills, its not like I can go stand still and hover them in actual raids :>
you gotta set up recording :>
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 22 2016 23:31 UTC
I am not even sure if they have hover's. I just have a special action bind and am busy enough when raiding :P
gotta switch to PS warrior
press 2 kill boss

Jul 22 2016 23:32 UTC
I end up being the chronotank
hah that's why you have no free time
since everyone has one
PS war is a blast, though it's hard to get slots with it
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 22 2016 23:33 UTC
yeah the harder roles to fill are druids and chrono's
eh you can run non-tank chronos which aren't as demanding as chronotank, I suspect
but I don't play mesmer well so yeah
