hey guys, recognizing that I can't easily get guild history info as wanted, I've started pulling in the logs and storing them in firebase firestore for later querying ... of course, I am missing the history ... any way to get the full history of invited/joined/rank_change/kick logs for a guild?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:22
No, the guild logs you request from the API, have always a max of 100 entries per log type if I'm not mistaken
Technical limitation
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:23
right. noticed it said data retention policy is 100 entries per log type, so I assume that means they are purging logs older
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:23
Yeah
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:24
seems kind of crazy to purge logs like that ... but ah well
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:24
If I recall correctly, @lye said something along the lines of how the game handles the log. Nothing that the API can do about.

@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:25
fair enough. thanks anyway.
scanning through the chat history here, sounds like the mumble link info is enough to overlay character locations on a map ... is that true?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:26
Also, side effect of this + the 5 minute cache timer, sometimes log entries won't show up because of >100 log entries in a 5 minute timespan
Yeah should be

Apr 21 2018 00:26
ha ... nice ... well currently im only interested in the member list management events so i can pull that in once an hour and be fine
pretty awesome ... any TOS considerations if the mumble link info is used that way?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:27
Translating the fAvatarPosition field of the Mumble Link to proper GW2 coordinates allows you to crossreference them with /v2/maps
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:27
nice. makes sense. 5 minute cache still i take it?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:28
Ehm, not really as far as I know. The only thing that was frowned upon by a former API dev Cliff (I think?) is sharing WvW player positions. Own team is fine, but crosssharing positions of all worlds... well yeah.
And, what do you mean with 5 minute cache still? In regards to the Mumble Link?
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:30
ah, i might be misunderstanding, I thought I saw mumble link info available in one of the apis
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:30
Mumble Link is local in the client itself, not a web API :D
So that's all updated live every frame
It's basically this: https://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Link
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:35
right, ok. Got it. thanks. I thought I saw one of the api docs say it was surfacing mumble link info. my mistake.

Apr 21 2018 00:36
not from that one! ... though that's useful. let me scan back through, if I find what I was remembering i'll let you know
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:37
It's still an API, so you're not wrong there :)
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:37
sounds like though if I wanted to provide something like officer locations on a guild website, they'd have to have a 3rd party tool or browser extension to do that
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:37
Yes.
Since it's a local API, everyone you want to get the locations of, needs to run a local application
One that sends the location to a hosted server somewhere
I think there was a website a long time ago that did this actually
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:40
its certainly doable from what im reading, as you know, but I don't think many people would want to have a 3rd party big brother app running on their machine
a browser extension might be more acceptable, so they could navigate to a particular website to enable location sharing
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:41
I don't know if a browser extension has memory mapped files capability
Sadly, almost everything linked in those threads is down
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:43
cool. thanks for the info.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 00:44
I mean, the ideal situation is having a websocket... but, official support is probably not coming for a long time :(
But no problem :) if you need more information on something, just ask us :D
dppllc
@dppllc
Apr 21 2018 00:45
will do, thanks

I think it might have to be something like chrome's NaCl to open a memory mapped file
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 12:19
that confirms it then

Oh, I completely forgot to update the gem exchange for a few days... hah
There's also one thing that's interesting to note. The more you buy in bulk, the more you get back. But I knew that already, but it's clearly visible here when you look at some lines.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 12:25
The 50g and 250g are still stuck :')
The only one that seems to update consistently is the 100g one
With 50-60 minute interval
But I can't make sense of gems -> coins

One Question: Shouldnt all of the Colors that are available in Total Makeover Kit/Self-Style Hair Kits, at least those not exclusive to them, be available under /v2/colors? Because from what i'm seeing at least Medium Blue, Foofoo, Panther Black and Pale Orange/Yellow apear not to be. Or am i mistaken by that?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 21 2018 13:39
I thought colors was just to resolve the dye colours used in the wardrobe
I mean most of the "dyes" for accessories in the makeover kits are similarly named, but I guess they're unique?
Medyro
@Medyro
Apr 21 2018 14:17
Might verry well be true. I would have just expected either all or non of them to be in /v2/colors but not a subset of them.

Maybe they're just not whitelisted

^ that
Medyro
@Medyro
Apr 21 2018 15:54
Might be that as well.
Guess only @apoch can tell for certain.
Or someone else from ArenaNet of course.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 21 2018 15:56
I wish we would get some API bugfixes :(
Medyro
@Medyro
Apr 21 2018 15:58
Or even better; new things :o
Also, how long have we been waiting for a Map Tile rebuild now?

hair, dye, skin, eyes etc are all part of colors
Medyro
@Medyro
Apr 21 2018 16:02
How sure are You about that?
Because i didn't find u.a. the Colors i listed above.
JC123
@JC123
Apr 21 2018 16:03
they arent white listed
Medyro
@Medyro
Apr 21 2018 16:04
I think you > "^ that" mentioned that already, didn't you?
I'm aware of it. Thanks ^^

Does the account does not have game access error mean that that account got banned? @apoch
And if yes, why do API keys from some banned accounts work?
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 21 2018 20:20
@apoch Also sent you an email with 215 API keys that throw {"text": "ErrBadData"} when trying to access /v2/account. Let me know if that made it through the spam filters.
