I'm curious, are item names/icons guaranteed to be static, or do they get changed sometimes?
JC123
@JC123
Aug 01 2017 02:57
occasionally old items get new icons
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 02:58
Darn. I was hoping I could get away with just remembering the icons forever
JC123
@JC123
Aug 01 2017 02:59
well its fairly rare

What's the character limit on the sizes of API urls? I want to request data for a bunch of items at once, but I worry about hitting the limit for a GET url. It's a shame we can't put item ids in a POST request
Darqam
@Darqam
Aug 01 2017 03:30
someone told me 200 once
but you can also use the page parameter
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Aug 01 2017 07:58
the limit is somewhere around 2000
or at least it was, haven't heard anyone complaining about the max url length of IIS in quite some time
2048 query string size, 4096 URL size (these are the default values of IIS it seems)
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 11:46
Thanks for letting me know, I'll just have to split it up into multiple requests.
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Aug 01 2017 11:53
You should never hit that with item ids?
They are only 5 characters long at most, separated by comma thats 200*6 = 1200

darthmaim
@darthmaim
Aug 01 2017 13:14
What language are you using? There probably is an API wrapper for it that handles splitting requests for many ids

@Archomeda

just my personal dislike of apple
wth is swift?
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 13:15
they may be switching to Swift, but I am not
I'm not rewriting my entire codebase again

If it makes you feel any better, I'm writing my project in Java at the same time

@Archomeda that's on buy.guildwars2.com right?
What browser?
Archomeda

Aug 01 2017 16:35
yeah thats broken for me too
wait @windwarrior that's not right
if you hard refresh does the pricing appear
price is also gone for me, and clicking checkout redirects me to PoF
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 16:36
thats the page for HoT
it doesnt show pricing even after hard reloading. The PoF page does have pricing
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:37
^ yup
the HoT page should redirect to the PoF page I dunno mang

it does, after you click the checkout button :P

@JamEngulfer none of the gameplay details really
@Eearslya literally no idea when I'll have time

Eearslya Sleiarion

Aug 01 2017 16:47
ouch
are you the only web dev on the api still?
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer

That's a shame really. I guess they're keeping stuff as under wraps as possible
i don't have much time for API anymore since I'm the team lead now

jackal @windwarrior
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 16:49
Is the api all done in C++ then?
no just the bits that need to interface with game stuff
(so I guess "yes most of it")
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:49
you're making me very upset that I can't afford switching to an internship
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 16:50
I'm surprised. I assumed it would be something like Node all the way down
there are a pile of C++ backend servers that expose a network API which is used by a javascript frontend that does all the formatting and tying things together
nah for loading the dat file, reading character blobs, etc, it has to be C++ to leverage the existing gameplay code
reading proprietary-format large binary blobs from javascript would take years to re-implement
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 16:50
I guess C++ is also much faster
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:51
Do the dat-reading servers keep the whole thing in RAM, I wonder?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:52
if you implement it right in c++, yes it's faster :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 16:52
I downloaded the entirety of /v2/items over the weekend, since I wondered how much it was. 3-4MB compressed
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 01 2017 16:52
That's pretty small
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:52
that's compressed
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 16:52
yeah its about 45 uncompressed
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:53
if you want to keep it in memory, you're not storing it compressed :P
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:53
Yeah, compression gets rid of basically all the JSON tags
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:53
also, keeping objects in memory makes it larger
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:53
and especially works well for armor/weapons with same stats
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 16:54
not too informed about how zip algorithms work, but would you be able to extract that "shorthand" table?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:57
"shorthand"?
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:57
he means the lookup table to re-expand what's been compressed
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 16:58
eh
i don't think the dat file has that
well
all files are compressed separately
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 01 2017 16:58
they're talking about their own compressed /v2/items dump
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 16:58
no, was talking about my scrape of /v2/items

i'm pretty sure that some alternate skins have been developed already

Aug 01 2017 17:49
that branded mountain was impressive
80 bucks ultimate edition? tempting
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:50
80 eur here, but whatever. sold.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 17:50
20 euros less than HoT during launch right?
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:51
it's the same isn't it?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 17:51
unsure
i thought it was 99
Werdes
@werdes
Aug 01 2017 17:51
basically deluxe + 50€ gems
hot was 99€
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 17:51
yeah
Werdes
@werdes
Aug 01 2017 17:51
same scheme there, deluxe + 50€ gems
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:51
oh yeah there was no price off for the gems there
Werdes
@werdes
Aug 01 2017 17:52
there still isn't off, but you get the deluxe upgrades for free
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:52
so standard + 50eur
Werdes
@werdes
Aug 01 2017 17:52
oh and yeah, https://www.guildwars2.com/de/path-of-fire/ is almost unusable on tablet/phone
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 01 2017 17:53
HoT standard was 49 i think
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 01 2017 17:53
yeah
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:55
so how does this work now? i seem to recall them saying when hot released that when the next expansion releases, hot will be free to play
if we release further Guild Wars 2 expansions, we plan to offer all of the prior expansions, the core game, and the latest expansion for one single purchase price.
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Aug 01 2017 17:55
so basically it's an expansion with pve desert borderlands and gliding.
there is a single purchase price ($50), it's just cheaper if you've already got HoT (or if you don't want to buy HoT)
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 01 2017 17:56
well it's a variation on the theme, nice

WINDOWS Minimum System Requirements
Windows® 7 or better (64 bit only)
also dropping 32-bit eventually?

4 GB RAM

this doesn't really make sense anymore :smile:

it's more like 6-8 GB at least that you need to have in your PC
maybe that gw2 only needs 4 GB for itself though

we had a hardware failure a couple weeks ago in frankfurt and two programs ("dStatic" and "sSharedWeb") were basically wiped off the grid
"dXXX" means "dev whatever" and "sXXX" means "stage whatever"
except "dStatic" is live
because rules are for losers
