AutoInvite  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.5.0
by: Sasky, Ayantir, silentgecko
Overview

Simple auto-invite addon - intended for use in Cyrodiil to quickly setup a group invite string without diving into menus. Since expanded to be a part of the group tab, but original slash commands still exist for quickly turning on and off.

Features
  • Slash commands to quickly enable or disable inviting, and regrouping
  • Stop sending invites when reach group limit
  • Change the group limit (when to stop invites)
  • Options panel as separate tab in group menu
  • Settings (except for actually running) are saved between loads
  • Option to only invite players in Cyrodiil (for guild invites)
  • Option to restart invite after someone leaves group
  • Option to auto-kick members after set amount of time offline
  • Button to re-form the group
  • Keybindings to reinvite or regroup the group

Localization
Translations have been provided by the following people
  • French - Provision
  • German - silentgecko
  • Japanese - Lionas
  • Russian - ForgottenLight

Usage
Open the group menu and there is a tab (far right) for AutoInvite settings. Set the invite string and any other settings then check enable. Now anyone who types that message (exactly) in chat will have an invite sent.

Alternatively you can use the slash commands to quickly start/stop and for when you want to start/stop without opening any menus.

Known Issues/Limitations
  • The regroup function doesn't work well through group leader bug.
  • Queue display is not in-order for position in queue.
  • No right click on the mini-group (for kick, travel to, etc).
  • Sometimes the mini-group list on the AutoInvite tab doesn't update properly. There is a button included to force an update if that's the case.

Slash commands
These are for very quick access or for debugging purposes.
  • /ai - Turn off AutoInvite. Emergency stop button of sorts
  • /ai foo - Set string to 'foo' and start inviting
  • /aidebug - Turn on debug logging to chat window. Note: this can be rather verbose.

Example
You're a raid leader and have some spots to fill.
  1. Type /ai xx in chat message to start listening for 'xx' message in chat
  2. Advertise yourself in chat ("Type xx for Bleakers raid group")
  3. Sit back and let the addon manage sending invites

Replacement Addon LGM

Hey all. This was one of my favorite Addons, and I was sad to see it deprecate over time... If you are looking for an addon to replace and expand upon the functionality of AutoInvite, then I think you'll be happy with Lilith's Group Manager (LGM)

The full list of features are given on LGM's home page, but I'm sure you'll find it a worthy replacement!

That way it should make sure that the players get invite, and if the first accept gets a "busy" error, then the invites send in the few following seconds will usually succeed.

Unfortunately im not super good with lua code. Looking throught the code I have trouble understanding how this could be done. Anyone here perhaps can offer me a little help?
I know it's a little late, but if you want to look at Taos Group Tools, he's got a grouping function that I believe does just want you're looking to do. He also has a blacklist for troublemakers you don't want auto-invited, which would be great for this addon. Unfortunately that addon is too heavy duty for my needs, so I'm sticking with this for as long as it works. If I knew jack about coding I'd happily take over this thing.

If you want to update the version so it doesn't show as out of date do the following:

Open up the file:
Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\AutoInvite\AutoInvite.txt

Change the first line to:
## APIVersion: 100023 100024


The main problem with invites not working is when someone else is using the same invite string on a given map, it creates a conflict. Not sure how to work around this in the code because there's no real way to get visibility into other players using this on the same map and which string they have setup as their listener.

This addon has become really buggy, sometimes when enabled it flat fails to work. Some times it says it is sending invites are nothing is happening. This could be an addon conflict. If anyone else is having these issues would be interested in knowing.

You can do this using Harven's Aliases. Once installed, you can set it up this way:
/addalias /w /invite (sets up the standard invite to initiate with w)
or
/addalias /w /ai (sets up the autoinvite with w)



I use this for many things, such as:

- With the Overview addon:
addalias /o /overview

- With jump to friends, jump to leader, etc.
addalias /jf /jumptofriend
addalias /jl /jumptoleader


You could also modify the file /autoinvite/lua/cli2.lua with a text editor.
Look for the line (around line number 49): SLASH_COMMANDS["/ai"] = function(str)

Change /ai to whatever custom string you wish to look for.


I'm running a modified version of AutoInvite (I call it AutoInvite2) which can be run in parallel with the original AutoInvite, with added functionality. I plan to make a few more changes to it. Writing in a custom string to initiate probably won't be one of them, but you never know. Harven's Aliases works very well for this purpose.

I added a feature to my yet-unreleased AutoInvite2 to remember it's invite enabled/disabled status across gaming sessions and reloadui's, as well as show its status via the /ai2 S command, as well as updated the API version so it doesn't appear out-of-date. I wrote one of the authors, and will try to contact the other two. Depending on whether I get a response or not, I may take over or contribute to this addon. It needs some improvements, however it appears to be well-written. I used this addon to learn the basics of lua and working with ESO.

I am also getting responses from others that it says "You Are Busy" when they try to accept it.

Wanted to come back and say it seams that this error pops up only when another AI is running with the same trigger word.

controller ui

Great mod, but why not putting the option available in the addons setting because I can't access it when I use my controller, unlesss I temporarily disable the controller ui to set it, which is a little annoying.

Out of date

8-31-2017
Out of date, yes please. Can you fix this ? I can't get access to it to turn on as it says out of dates so it's not even listed in game.

Update

What about API bump and LAM update to remove the annoying "out of date" status?
