I don't understand why they don't just provide an API
It seems really obvious for team-based pvp games

Neverwinter has its own web application (hence an API) but not public <.<
when will studios get that official APIs are real improvements?
when they hire a bunch of web developers (lol)
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 17 2017 17:11
haha
good thing about wildstar is that they have a moddable UI, so the first inofficial API database was datamined through the UI

that thread didn't get much traction
I got excited when I saw this link https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/API:Changelog
but clearly it's not being maintained any longer
c'mon free labor do our job for us already

it'd be nice to have a changelog available on the API itself

i can do it, if someone can get us an audit log from your p4 :P
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 17:37
but that's a bunch of writing
It's mostly just @lye swearing
I was gonna say
"we can't release those without parent or guardian approval"

i ehm... would love to read that too
;p
I'm pretty sure I paste most of the choice snippets in here anyway

you know... searching in gitter... is almost non-existent
there's a search function?
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 17:39
yeah gitter search is terri-bad
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 17:39
just using google on the gitter archives is better
is gitter open source yet
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 17:40
doubtful
doesn't look like it; how has it only been a month since gitter was acquired

that thread didn't get much traction

yea, i guess Carbine have other problems currently

most of the people (players) there are busy with modding the UI anyway

I'm still trying to tweet all changes on @GW2API
gitter, why are you trying to interpret my link as a mention...

lol
I appreciate it @darthmaim

When I started I linked all the github/forum/... too, now I'm just screenshoting the changelogs @lye posts here :D

Apr 17 2017 17:59
scrape the twitter API and transfer it to the wiki :D
darthmaim
@darthmaim

:D
I wouldn't trust those twitter dates though, sometimes I'm a week late tweeting stuff
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 17 2017 18:00
better than nothing :D
you could also faciliate the gitter API
APIs all the way!
madness!
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 18:01
The gitter API isn't that bad actually

@queicherius order by "unlock status" would be nice on this page https://gw2efficiency.com/account/dyes

Give my thanks to whoever on the team decided that at some point the festival counter should tick over to hours/minutes/seconds. 3 more resets to get crimson tokens in (assuming you're quick on the last one)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 18:52
wait what?
you mean the dailies?
or am i missing something
nah the festival callout box has a "timer"
it's actually a long series of if statements, but yeah.
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 17 2017 18:54
```if (timeremaining == 60) printf("01:00");
nah it's not that bad
it goes from "play SAB" -> "N weeks remaining" -> "N days remaining" -> "H:M:S remaining"
or something along those lines
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 19:03
oh
that notification is collapsed here, so i never noticed it

ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 17 2017 19:48
oh right
nice job on the map stuff then
barely even making a dent in it
honestly the maps stuff is super confusing; I don't really understand how all the bits and pieces fit together
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 17 2017 19:50
I wouldn't mind if you just close all the issues related to maps.
nah gonna keep them open until they're fixed
at some point I need to learn how to edit content
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 17 2017 19:50
could just log an ingame bug report to get the map changed to match the API :P
because a lot of these issues go away if the content is modeled properly
lol right
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 17 2017 19:54
Now I'm just imagining one of the devs reading a bug report where the report indicates actual variable names/structures in the code and being entirely confused how a player knew about it XD
I would be very surprised if you guessed the content structure, much less the actual struct names
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Apr 17 2017 19:57
I mean if you sent the bug report
oh lol
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 19:58
hahaha
"Yeah hello MapDef 895 specifies RegionDef 29 but the corresponding IMapLayoutRegion doesn't have a reverse entry in its RegionMaps array"
To be fair, this is SAB so there's probably a reason that it's implemented this way (and no one knows the reason anymore)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 19:59
calling josh foreman for explanation
did you see this too @lye? stupid gitter embed link fix
that's almost certainly the same issue as SAB
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 20:03
that's just continent 1 though
basically each map has one or more ... things? layouts? that each have a pointer to a region. the region has a list of maps. The former is used for /v2/maps, the latter is used for /v2/continents
honestly it's all jumbled up in my head
darthmaim

well, i converted the changelog page on the wiki to be more readable i suppose, in my own namespace for now: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/User:Archomeda/Sandbox/API_Changelog
still, i have no clue what has changed on which day between then and now

do you have everything listed there @darthmaim? :P
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 21:14
I hope so
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:14
otherwise i might want to go through all the issues manually
and hope the close dates are right (which are most likely not)
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 21:15
probably not :D
why does each region have multiple sets of maps
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:29
okay, i will continue another day haha
the whole mapping system confuses the pants off of me
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:30
rip pants
blast light fields
honestly
playing dagger/wh aurashare makes me like blasting light fields
since I have practically no cleanse
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:31
;D
ugh why is there no /v2/regions
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:32
didn't you merge it to /v2/continents at some point?
that was @tivac
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:32
oh
but that was /v2/floors or something
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:32
hmmmm
that might be possible
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 17 2017 21:33
does that even exist?
maybe it was a v1 endpoint, I don't recall
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 17 2017 21:33
(i keep confusing continents and floors all the time)
yea, v1/floors is a thing
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 17 2017 21:38
@Archomeda - sometimes the release date was added to the API pages on the wiki: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/index.php?title=Guild_Wars_2_Wiki:Sandbox&oldid=1409179

@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:39

also, i love reading @lye's comments on the issues
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 21:45
oh, almost forgot, for new release times of endpoints you can use my gist
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:46

Arghghghg waffle.io you have betrayed my trust.

https://github.com/arenanet/api-cdi/pull/49#issuecomment-125784232

:D
ah, cool @darthmaim
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 21:47
thats all automated so the times are 100% correct ;D
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 17 2017 21:49
... and today i learnt v2/materials is a thing
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 17 2017 21:50

hmm
@lye saying that /v2/traits would be turned on (well, not in exactly those words) on 24 August 2015, but apparently it happened almost 2 weeks later? :P
oop
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 21:59
that's confusing haha
just going through @darthmaim's gist
oh lol
/v2/traits-beta got removed 6 months later
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 22:12
lol this is great
API should have an auto-incrementing build number of its own someday
not that it'd map to anything, necessarily
Actually that already exists, it just isn't part of the app itself
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 22:15
map to /v2/changelog :P
first entry: "Added /v2/changelog"

/v2/build/api/build?
thats meta
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 22:23
I'd probably just add it to the JSON representation of /v2
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Apr 17 2017 22:29
or an header maybe?
X-API-VERSION: 123
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 22:34
okay alright, i'm not going to add whitelisted things to the changelog omg
that stuff is too much + almost untrackable
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 22:36
yeah don't do that
other people have written those tools and it'd be so much noise

/v2/minis seems to be missing from /v2...

WHY DO I ALWAYS DO THIS?
I'll have that fixed later this week.

https://github.com/arenanet/api-cdi/pull/107#issuecomment-155233529

so i guess your list isn't 100% correct @darthmaim, but only because /v2/minis wasn't included in the list :D

let's see, 2h for just 6 months... urgh
now i'm gonna do something else, wow
anyone here who knows of a good map to complete for a BL key?
nope, I thought they all had the same drop %
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 23:20
well, i meant as in completion speed
droprate should be the same afaik
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 17 2017 23:40
Yeah, I've got one
It's called the "buying gems map"
not sure if you're familiar with it :moneybag:

like really; a guildie of mine opened 5 BL chests and got 5 elemental sword skins, i opened 10 of them; nada
rng ._.
man what a shame, those are on a good drop table too
do you at least get an extra key when you get a dupe?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 17 2017 23:43
i think so
