Price Tracker  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.4
by: Barvazon [More]
General Info

Price Tracker is a simple addon that scans all your guild banks and tracks items and their prices. It then calculates and shows a suggested price in the item tooltip, as well as the minimum and maximum prices and the number of times the item was seen in the stores.

The suggested price can be calculated in several ways (which can be selected in the settings menu):
  • Weighted average: The average price of all items, with stack sizes taken into account. For example, a stack of 10 items will be counted 10 times when calculating the average price.
  • Median price: The price value for which half of the items cost more and half cost less.
  • Most popular price: The most common price value.[/color]

How to Use

Initially, all the guild stores have to be inspected in order for the addon to work properly. Simply go to a banker, open the Guild Store menu and click on the 'Scan Prices' button on the left-hand side. This will take a while, depending on how many guild stores are available, and how many items are listed in each guild store. During the scanning process, the 'Scan Prices' button will be disabled. It will be reenabled once all the guild stores have been scanned.

After that, simply select an item in your bag, and if the item is listed in a guild store, it will show the suggested price.

Updating Prices

Occasionally, click on the 'Scan Prices' button again to update the price list with newly listed items.

Database Update

Notice that starting v1.7 changes the way items are indexed and retrieved. From now on, instead of using the item name, Price Tracker uses the item ID, which is a lot more accurate. It also accounts for the item's level when comparing prices. For example, Leather Boots of Stamina can come in level 15, 35 or 50. When comparing prices, only items that match the level of the selected Leather Boots of Stamina will be taken into account.

Having said that, I am aware that, for some reason, certain items come in more than one level, where that does not seem to make any sense. Recipes, ingredients, and certain items will report to have different levels, even though no discernible difference can be found. I do not know why that is the case. Only ZO can answer that question.

Lastly, as a result of this change, all saved items will be dropped, and a new database will be created. Please do not forget to click on the 'Scan Items' button to rescan the stores.

If I fix the memory problem

Memory error was on my side. Price Tracker never dumps its saved variables file so had to exit out and manually delete it. Their is probably a better way to manage the item data will have to look at the coding of a few of the guild trade addon that export their data.

Hope to hear back from Barvazon soon.

Wink Found problem

I found the answer to the problem. I had to copy the newest version of LibAddonMenu ver. 2.0 r 16 over the old ver. 2.0 r 8.

The only error I get now when every I enable Price Tracker is a memory allowance error. Going to read thru the code and look for a script that is running endlessly.

BTW the license included in with this addon states that anyone is allowed to alter, republish, or otherwise change this addon as long as the original credit and license remains. At least that is how I read it.

Memory error

I have been getting a memory error with this add-on. I like the tracking function but feel this add-on has a glitches. Saddens me to remove it but I feel it is in my best interest.

Sorry, I haven't been playing much lately, and I haven't had a chance to add the new functionality.

You could also have it to provide a list of each guild trader that the user has scanned. Allow the user to delete scan data for specific guild traders. So if I scan trader 1, trader 2, trader, trader 3, and trader 4. Show 1-4 of those in dropdown and allow me to select one and then click a button that says remove data from selected guild trader.

This would help people that want to have competitive prices among all trader in an area instead of just their own trader. For example, I could scan all of the traders in craglorn(where my trader is located at) and remove all others and pricechecker will give me the most competitive prices for that area.
I too would love to see this happen.
