when looking for the logo in the asset kit, it makes me wonder, are the HoT and PoF logos ever gonna make it into the asset kit?

I am guessing this is the best place to ask this question, but I want to develop an ui/addon for the game, is this allowed?
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 14 2017 17:29
basically yes (but...)

@lye can help maybe
(nb. can we write this down somewhere on the wiki and/or forums?)

I am trying to read over these TOS but, from what I have been reading on other sites, Addons are now permitted and they previously weren't
I can't comment on whether or not it would violate the TOS, unfortunately.

as long as it doesn't show information that you can't obtain otherwise from the game it should be fine
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 14 2017 17:33
(basically this about permission... :D)
There is no official support for ui/addons, though there was an arenanet-sponsored contest for an overwolf thing
@codemasher you know I can't give permission for anything :P
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 14 2017 17:34
it wasn't permitted before and it still isn't, however, if you stick by the imaginary rules, you're fine
(ikr, @lye )
btw. pretty sure the overwolf contest was held because OW doesn't require changes/addons for GW2
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:38
Yeah it doesnt
its just post processing stuff
doesn't it inject a DLL to do the overlay
i don't know how graphics work
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 14 2017 17:39
overwolf may inject something
but not the app directly
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:40
i read now overwolf no longer detects and injects its overlay into ANY of my game
But, I read it wrong lol
Not really sure what it does
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 14 2017 17:40
what does that mean on the practical side?
no more ingame overlays?
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:41
I know that it does have an overlay, but so does Nvidia
Don't think Nvidia injects anything into my game
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 14 2017 17:42
eh, nvidia probably has other ways to draw something with their drivers
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:42
But I am thinking I am just going to scrap my Idea about creating an ADDON/UI anything for this game, Doesn't seem like its "wanted" by the development team.

Sep 14 2017 17:42
noone at anet would give you a permission - just write it and hope you don't get banned... :D
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 14 2017 17:43
the only apps that got "banned" were ones that displayed info you couldn't get otherwise
for example the gear of party members

@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:43
LOL i dont want to turn out like BGDM

Sep 14 2017 17:43
i wonder about the toolbox for gw1 tho...
seems like everyone is using it now

Sep 14 2017 17:48
Yeah, I was just wanting to create a DPS / Health meter system that would display my current dps output vs the monsters health. Helping me decide what weapons, items, stats were best for my class. I didn't really even want to distribute it to the community, but I am guessing based off the info i've got from here that is a NO NO because there is no API for health or damage or anything of that nature.
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 14 2017 17:49
dps meters are ok
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 14 2017 17:51
You might want to look at ArcDPS, a DPS meter currently tolerated
There might be a more recent dev comment, but thats the one I found
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 14 2017 17:52
Otherwise, if you intent to create a tool that might possibly stretch the definition of the "gentlemans agreement", you can message /u/ChrisCleary
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:53
I didn't even realize ArcDPS even was a thing anymore
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 14 2017 17:54
be wary, all these tools fall under a gentlemans agreement, they are tolerated, not allowed
Schem
@Orgjas05
Sep 14 2017 17:58
I see what you're saying @windwarrior
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 14 2017 18:18
try messaging your idea to /u/ChrisCleary on reddit
he's the one that's been talking to the devs about approval and such
he should really be in here :P @lye get him in here :thumbsup:

How did you get that 10k though

Also @Coffee4cr I reached out to him about that post actually that @darthmaim linked

I just started and used a boost on an elementalist. Came back to the game after being gone since the launch lol

@queicherius is there a place on gw2 efficiency to see what order a character is in? (vigil, whispers, priory)
We used to see it at character selection, but someone pointed out that it doesn't show up there anymore
@lye is that something pushed by the API?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 14 2017 20:44
its not, #176 is the issue for that
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 14 2017 20:51
Ok thanks

@Coffee4cr but then we can't talk about other shady stuff anymore :(
that's a thing now
makes sense

I think anet should either ban everything or be fair and create an api for such extensions. I just think the "here check my extension, chris"-approach just won't scale
but I look forward to the gw2taco ingame overlay version :D
