WoWReader Issues & Help (v.4)Follow

This is the main thread for help and issues reguarding WowReader. The previous threads can still be found v.3, v.2 and (older) v.1.

If you just need general usage instructions, be sure to check the Readme.txt included before asking any questions. If you have any problems, or run into any bugs, post here. If you encounter an error message that mentions error.txt, post it's contents here. If you have trouble patching, post the contents of patch.log and startup.log here.

"After entering my login info, I get an invalid-password error when I try to upload, and if I go back, my pw changed to a long string of ***'s."

- Ensure that you actually entered your correct login and password for this website. Be sure that both the login AND password are correct. They are both case-sensitive. If in doubt, or the error persists, try changing your password on the website, then entering the new one. The number of ***'s shown on the login screen is not related to the length of your password. The extra stars shown are not causing your problem.


"Profile not updating"

- Verify the Wr UI Addon is loading within the game. You can type /wver in game to confirm it's running. If it's not loaded, exit out of WoW and go to character select, then click on the "Addons" button and make sure its not disabled. If you've checked this, please mention it in your post so we can save some time.

- Ensure you're having Wowreader upload successfully after you've logged out from the game world on the character you wish to update.

- It can take a couple minutes between a successful upload and your profile reflecting the changes.

- Stats on profile search are updated hourly, not instantly, so if your profile shows the correct stats, but search doesn't, just give it some time.


"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application."

- Fix this by installing the newest version of .NET


Error message: "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process id = 0x??? (????) Thread id = 0x??? (????)."

- This can be caused by a few different things.
. First, make sure that you installed WowReader to a local hard drive, and not to a network share.
. Next, try uninstalling, downloading the installer again and reinstalling wowreader.
. Finally, try deleting the WowReader SavedVariables file and WoW's WDB directory. By default, this would be the file "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<account>\SavedVariables\Wr2.lua", and the directory "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache". Log in and out of WoW after doing so, and they'll be recreated.


One final note: Off-topic posts in this thread will be deleted. Please don't use this thread for general questions.

WowReader or WoWReader? Now I have to edit my guide... again!

I've got a small request for the character profiles though. The following is taken from my Hunter's profile and most importantly, his critical hit chance:


Critical Hit: +14%

Now, if I hover my mouse over it, it says Base: 13 Items: 1. However, I'm only getting +8% crit from talents (+11% against Humanoids) and +1 from items.

It can't be +something if it's base crit. I would have a crit chance of 20% or something like that. I don't.

I've got ~14% with my Auto Shot. 9 of those are from talents and gear, leaving 5 for my the base crit rating. Now, it probably includes talents as base so it should be rewritten to either:

Critical Hit: 14%, Base: 5% Talents: 8% Items: 1%

or

Critical Hit: +9%, Talents: +8% Items: +1%

The way it's written now, it looks as if I have +14% crit chance to my base crit chance, being 5%, giving me a total of 19% chance to crit.

Or perhaps I'm just dumb.

I may be misunderstanding, but you're seeing 5% extra crit you can't find? 277 agi / ~53 agi-per-crit = about 5%.

The talent bonuses are passive and permanent, which is why they are included in the "base". The items is a variable because someone might change equipment and have vastly different numbers, but the base will always be there unless they respec. (Well, ok, if you want to nitpick, the crit-from-agi would change as well.) But the "items" just accounts for +crit bonuses, which is about to be +crit rating.

What's your base crit (with base stats) at level 60?

The problem is that the thing shows +13% crit which means 13% crit added to something. Something what? Zero? My base crit chance?

If it showed just 13% (without the +) then I'd understand it, even though it would be a bit off since my crit chance is more like 14.5%.

Checked my add-ons screen and WoW Reader is listed in red, with the word "Incompatable" beside it. Downloaded and installed the latest version from here. Still "Incompatable". Is WoW Reader not 2.0 compliant yet?

Got a small problem, need some help. You asked us to use the Reader when we were playing on the beta client. So I followed the instructions and have the Reader running, but when I try to upload the information, I get the following error:

Connection error: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did no properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

Is this on my end or yours? Is there something I can do to fix it, or should I just wait patiently for you guys to fix whatever is wrong on your end?

I am getting the same error in the wow interface addons menu, incompatable.

Is there a new version that is compateable with the test realms?

Also I wanted to search the forums for instructions on how to configure the mod for the beta thinking there would be information there on how to get the current version working, but I get no results.

Does anyone have a link or links to where I can find ways to edit the files to make them work correctly with the new patch?

--------------------

I get an error with the new version, and it tells me it wrote something in the error.txt file. Here is the contence.

I had an addon that gave me the incompatible flag when I checked the addon in-game. I changed its Interface section in the .TOC file to the following: ## Interface: 20000. Message went away. I'm getting ready to try it WoWReader to see if that fixes the incompatible message or not. Hopefully the code is compatible and it just a version update issue.

Update:
I tried changing inteface line in TOC file. The incompatible message went away, but the reader generates errors when it tries to update anything. So we wait for a 2.0.1 compatible update.

Well I got the new version. It said compatable. BUT... When I went to the Deadmines, it started giving all kinds of errors about calling a table evertime I attacked/got attacked by a new mob. So, still seems broken somewhat.

I've uploaded all my chars several times but when I look at my profiles the 41 point talents are displayed as not in use.

On some chars the webby displays only 35 talent points even if I have 44 game.

I have the same problem like OysteinR , the talents arent updated properly like u didnt spent all 51 or so, and shows only 33 instead of 41 the real value in game.

It also throws that table error mentioned above sometimes, especially when targeting a mob.

Targeting seems okay now. (Seems to have been a new update last night).

HOWEVER...

The Profiles on the web here do not reflect new 2.0 changes. For instance:
- Quests are still listed a x/20 rather than x/25
- The new Rep bar for Exodar (and I would assume Horde has this same prob with Silvermoon) does not show. Not important now, but it will be when TBC hits.
- Not sure if talent trees are updated or not.

I have the latest version... (I think) no more than one day old.

Whenever I target a mob, I get an error box declaring an error in wr. I don't remember the error, but I can look it up (it is VERY consistant)

Only addons I am using atm: CT Mod/raid assist

Add/edit: deshuzz already mentioned the bug... and has the correct error message. (Missed his post the first time I skimmed the thread. Sorry for the dup)

I've got a small problem with WoWReader since the latest update of WoW.

When in Stormwind and after entering the little "dungeon" north of the "Mage Quarters" fighting enemies I get an error that says: "Interface\AddOns\Wr2\Wr2.lua:619: attempt to call a table value" and a button that says [OKAY].

To see image click here

I see now that I'm not the only one with this problem ;)

This should already be fixed. Make sure you restart WowReader so it can update the ui addon to the newest version.

I have 2 profiles waiting to be uploaded, but when I press the Upload button I get "Ther server closed the connection." I'm still ingame when I attempt to upload . . . could that be affecting it, or should I be able to upload while still logged in? I thought I read somewhere that was kosher . . . but with all the mod updates lately I've read a Lot of information and it's quite possible it got pureed in my brain. :)

[edit]

Answered my own question when I logged out of the game so figured I'd update here in case anyone else is curious . . . I was able to upload after completely logging out and profiles are up to date. Numbers on my inventory items are screwy looking, but otherwise everything else looks gtg.

Manual upload tool and ui files are now updated.

Further updates to profiles for the changes in 2.0 are still being worked on.

Anyway I have noticed that when I upload, then check my character profile, it is not always uploading my character as they were on logout. Sometimes it will show my character as they were 30-45 minutes before I logged out. How often does the lua grab data?

You do not need to use the button, just start WoW with the executable file or the launcher and it works all the same.

Many programs do not work for Windows Vista right now. I had the Vista Ultimate installed on my machine and over half of programs caused the system to crash, so I went back to XP Pro =\ (until after Vista's official release anyways)

This has been bugging me since WoW 2.0 went live, but only just got round to mentioning it. Ever since the big patch whenever I look in my backpacks I get extremely long strings of numbers over any stackable items.

For instance if I open my quiver, I have 16 stacks of "200:0:0:0:0" Jagged Arrows, instead of just "200" jagged arrows. This seems to happen with any stackable item, eg I also have "3:0:0:0:0" of Ice Cold Milk.

Don't think its relevant but I'm looking at this with Firefox 2.0.0.1 on Windows XP SP2.

I am new to wow reader and its working (today being my first try).

As of the 23/12/06 I am also getting this error ! I have had other errors, but realised i began my testing while server work was in progress. No more mention of server work on site now...

The manual upload seemed to work, cannot create an icon as it calls a various "Software Errors" that occasionally allowed the next page to load. Finaly was able to create the icon.

Althouth this isnt really not my desired method anyhow..

Any help would be Greatly Apreciated. Do i need to open a port on my router maybe, other than those used by WOW itself that are already triggered ??

WowReader uploads should be working again now, after server maintenance. You'll need to exit & restart wowreader so it can update to the latest version before uploading.
