Were the Ogrewatch cut markers always off from where they should be?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 01:44
ogrewatch has been moved to where the markers are now
i guess the tiles haven't been updated
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 18 2018 01:45
oh right. derp
that makes more sense
Archomeda

i did some wvw the first time in months this week, came across ogrewatch, and i was like... wait... something is not from what i remember..
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 18 2018 01:47
well now I think about it, last time i was in there as a firebrand bubble we were stacking siege in the ogre territory to where the markers are

omg... i've been trying to figure out why the internal pointer of an object that implements enable_shared_from_this was empty for about half an hour now, and every shared_from_this was giving me a bad_weak_ptr...
turns out, i did this

class Addon : std::enable_shared_from_this<Addon> {

instead of

class Addon : public std::enable_shared_from_this<Addon> {

i haven't done any c++ recently, and i already forgot how inheritance works in c++ -_-

alright, i somehow got it working again, by dropping support for native d3d9 addons for now... i'm trying out to have dedicated addons for the loader first, and the example addon i have is working fine
@BoyC also, it's probably possible to create a taco proxy dll for it that just boots up taco and calls it a day; personally i would like that so i don't have to boot taco manually

I've spotted some events in the API.. flags indicate "dungeon_event" but the location is Domain of Vabbi (e.g. 1FB77B53-ED46-4EEF-9BE8-D487641D5410) new dungeons incoming?
assigned no name.

Is in the dungeons endpoint only the paths listed? Or can I somehow retrive more information about a dungeon?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 18 2018 11:51
example of what else?

@SchoolGuy
Feb 18 2018 12:03
Dialogues & Events e.g.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 12:21
Events? Probably, but those are most likely only in /v1/events.json or whatever that endpoint is called. Dialogues? No.

been trying to figure out why this lookup wasn't working for 15 minutes, assuming it was a type problem..
... lookup was working perfectly, i just wasn't using the result. at all.

musing over whether I'm going to waste my time doing WvW locator maps for the wiki
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 13:23
locator maps?
but for wvw areas
I really thought I'd done these before but somehow i haven't
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 13:24
ohh
these things are nice whenever i need to know where a specific area is :P
i guess that's where the name comes from

did smiley say a while back that the ingame map was stretched to something like 124% of the api tile size?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 18 2018 13:54
117%.
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Feb 18 2018 13:54
the ingame map also has a higher resolution than what you can get from the api

finally, i found a way to override gw2's cursor >_>
it's kinda annoying when gw2 uses the hand cursor even when it's inside a imgui panel... heh

I eventually remembered why I haven't previously done WvW maps for the wiki... every time i look at the articles I start internally screaming
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 15:00
why? :joy:
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 18 2018 15:00
well nobody on the wiki does wvw
ergo the articles are missing like everything
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 18 2018 15:01
rip

amazing how a shitty article can be improved with two images, a strapline description and working chatlinks.

Getting started with API
by Ceddwen.7260 in API Development

I've been interested in discussions I see about API but have to admit I'm a complete noob in this area! I can see how to create a key in my account, but then the article says to enter this into the box provided on the third-party site. This is where I'm immediately lost - I have no idea how to find a site or what I could get it to do for me. I've seen the Wiki whch is linked from one of the GW2 Forums (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/API:Main#Services) but this goes over my head.
Please can anyone point me in the direction of a very easy idiot's guide to getting started with API?

Thanks!

so i was doing some taco testing at the overlook in the northern ls3 map when suddenly i hear buzzing
"meh a guy with queen bees" i thought
the guy had 9 queen bees stacked, a chak egg sac and the confetti infusion
turns out he's #10 on gw2eff

@ptolstoi
Feb 18 2018 23:23
usually it doen't mark some random posts as read, just reload/change conversation and it will show a "jump to unread message", usually...
