I thought I'd start this thread to discuss and share technical info we discover about the game for those wishing to help Allakhazam fill their game database and help any future mod creators. I'm not a dev type myself, but I have found out some info so far that may possibly be useful to them. I used to use WoWreader to help Alla's WoW side of things, so maybe we will eventually get something similar for WAR.
1) Screenshots. First of all, you can hide your interface by holding the left shift key + z (similar to how it's done in WoW). By default, screenshots are stored in jpg image format in your <warhammer install dir>/screenshots/ every time you hit printscreen in game. This is one way everybody can help Allakhazam's wiki.
2) Game data. I found some files in <warhammer install dir>/logs/ that may be useful to a future project! A lot of data is stored in here, but I haven't been able to really analyze it all to see how useful it really is. All conversations are stored in here, so at the very least you can go back and look at those hot cyber logs with Tyrandor.
3) UI file format. In your <warhammer install dir>/user/ you will find a UserSettings.xml file as well as an interface subdirectory. I noticed a dir called EATemplate_UnitFrames with a ModSettings.xml file contained within. With XML editing knowledge (and perhaps the aid of a third party app such as XML Spy to help edit it, I wonder if it will be possible to create addons and mods for Warhammer Online?
It's worth pointing out that the default UI is easily customizable in game.
I also noticed that chats in WAR don't just get lost in /tell in your main text window - you can pop them up into a separate nice IM-like window in almost EXACTLY the same way that the Cellular mod I just installed the other day in WoW does! You can minimize it to just a button with the person's name and it will glow to indicate new text. Very nicely done! Screenshot showing chat window below:
Anyways, food for thought. I hope this info helps somebody get started with a project - whether it's updating the wiki or creating a mod for the game.
