1.34 Changes:
  • Added itemname() to match items by name. Returns true if the item name contains any of the provided strings (case insensitive), e.g. itemname("Maelstrom", "Alkosh")

1.33 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Murkmire.

1.32 Changes:
  • More huge performance improvements! Thanks again to Shadowfen who did all the work here. (Pre-compile rules as they are changed)
  • Replaced Set Tracker support function GetSetTrackerState() with IsTracked(). If you used the old function, you will need to update your rule (sorry). This was done to bring the usage inline with the way the other similar functions work. Usage, e.g.: IsTracked("Sell/Decon", "Collecting")

1.31 Changes:
  • Big performance increase (2x or better for me), thank you to Shadowfen for the code change suggestion!
  • Updated libraries

1.30 Changes:
  • Added French translation. Big thanks to Hasgaad!

1.29 Changes:
  • HOTFIX - resolve errors at merchant due to Wolfhunter API changes.

1.28 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Wolfhunter.

1.27 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Summerset.
  • Added support for jewelry crafting ingredients. Note: you will need to either create a new rule yourself, or reset AutoCategory to default settings to grab the new default rule.
    • To create your own rule, use
      Lua Code:
      1. filtertype("jewelrycrafting")
    • To reset to default settings: In the Auto Category add-on menu, use the Defaults button. Then use the /reloadui command. Important: this will remove any custom rules/settings you have defined.
  • New API function "IsMarkedIS()" - use to test whether an item is marked with Item Saver. Note that FCO ItemSaver users should continue to use "IsMarked()"

1.26 Changes:
  • New API function "islocked()" - use to test whether an item has been locked.

1.24 Changes:
  • Resolve circular dependency issue with DoItAll (requires matching update to DoItAll).


1.23 Changes:
  • Added Set Tracker support! Use "getsettrackerstate()" to retrieve the name of the Set Tracker category, if an item is tracked.
  • Added charlevel() and charcp() to pull current character level and CP. Can be used to compare item level to your character level with a custom rule. (Thanks to VulcanTourist)

1.22 Changes:
  • You can now define separate settings for your home storage chests (they will take their initial settings from your bank settings, but can be customized at will).

1.21 Changes:
  • Added support for home storage chests (big thanks to raj72616a). Currently, they will use the settings selected for your bank (no custom settings for home chests yet).

  • New Feature: Hide-able Category. You can hide some categories to focus on the items you need to deal with. Also you can hide the items that are not matched in the 'Other' category. Can be set in bag setting menu.
  • New Feature: Items Count. You can get a total number about how many items inside the category. This can be turned off in the general setting menu.
  • Account Wide setting changed: You can switch account wide/character wide for each of your characters. (* Need to select again if you use character setting before, don't affect the bag settings)
  • Fixed bug: Removed duplicated rules in bag setting.
  • Fixed bug: German set names should be able to be matched now.
  • Changed api:keepresearch()
    After a lot of tests, the api is not working fine. So I decided to make the api work more simple: It will match all the items can be researched. If you want better result, please use it with other api together. This is a basic idea to filter the item that is not part of a set and can be researched:
    Lua Code:
    1. keepresearch() and not isset()
  • New api:isset() api:ismonsterset()

1.15 Changes:

Need advice for a new personal rule

I intend to create a new category for Disguises. Under what Tag should I define it, Gear or General Items? I'm guessing General Items, but I'd like to get it right the first time ('cause that's the main thing).

Achievement Items rule

The Achievement Items rule doesn't seem to be matching things that I believe it should be matching, like the Construct's Chestplate (.|H0:item:129905:1:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1:0:0:1:0:0:0|h|h), which is a character bound unique museum piece. Can you test it?

Addendum: I discovered that it wasn't added as a category to Backpack. Was that intended?

Right. But just removing it now won't do as we shoudl finally fix it like the way it always had to be.
So please contact me before you change the OptionalDependsOn lines, so we can fix it in both addons properly. Otherwise we will always be working in circles here and the addons won't work properly

I had written a PM to rockingdice in February as I did not know there is a new maintainer for this addon.
Just read the entries here now by suprise.

What i currently looks like:
AutoCategory manifest txt: ##OptionallyDependsOn DotItAll
DoItAll manifest txt: no reference to DoItAll to avoid circular references

But it should be:

What it needs to be:
AutoCategory manifest txt: no reference to DoItAll to avoid circular references
DoItAll manifest txt: ##OptionallyDependsOn DotItAll

Reason: DoItAll needs to wait for AutoCategory to load so the hooks within DoItAll can use and recognize the AC special collapsing stuff in the invetories properly.

Please write me a PM here if you are going to change it so we can both change it properly and update the addons at the same time.
Thanks.

This is the most recent post in the DoItAll comments:

AutoCategory has not removed the reference to DoItAll as it should have done
Fixed within DoItAll for now but it should have been the other way around.
Perhaps this fell through the cracks during the recent change in maintainership. The timing is about right.

Thanks, I'm going to PM you regarding the patch removal instructions. I'll check your code later and get the level checks implemented.

You seem to be misunderstanding the purpose of the currently implemented Low Level rule. It's not flawed at all, it's just an entirely different rule than what you were looking for. It matches all gear <CP160 because due to the nature of ESO, that gear is generally of little value.

I understand your desire for a different rule, but you're replacing a rule that a lot of people will use with one that has much more of a niche use case. Can you remove the patch? It's somewhat misleading since it implies that there is something wrong with the default low level gear rule.

I will definitely implement the two new functions that are needed for you (or anyone else) to implement this type of custom filter, I still plan to do that tonight or tomorrow.
That is a different purpose than I expected from the name of the Category, so yes, I did misunderstand. I don't seem to be able to delete the patch now that I've submitted it, though; the site is giving me no ability that I can see to remove it. I assume you can remove it, but I've changed the title and description to make it apparent that it has an alternative purpose. I didn't investigate how to change the default rule conditions, so the patch didn't change those automatically and I added instructions to the description to change them manually. The patch will have no noticeable effect unless those steps are followed.

In any case, I've already written the few lines for the added functions and aliases, so you can just cut and paste those.

Yeah that was the first thing I tried, removed the Alchemy and Poison category and it had no effect on the station, also, tried removing ALL categories and the alchemy station was still all screwed up...
Thanks for looking into this guys!
Looking forward to using the addon again.

I'll attach a screenshot of what I mean.

As you can see it just throws everything everywhere, splits up the waters, oil, and reagents.
Anyway to just turn this off for alchemy stations? As the default alchemy station works just fine...

Thanks!

That should do the trick. You just want functions to return char level and char CP? I can add those in, I will probably push an update tonight or tomorrow.

I added the functions back and added aliases for them in that block, then modified the Low Level rule to use them again... but it still doesn't work and fails in the same way: even items that were in that Category already get relegated to Other instead. Nothing matches the modified conditions. I need to investigate that API call, what it's really supposed to do, its usage, and what data types it returns. It may not behave as I guessed it does. I know nothing of the data typing in LUA, but if I'm expecting integers and it's returning strings that aren't type-converted, then that could explain it. If it's entirely the wrong API call then that would also explain it.

I've asked for help elsewhere in the forum about that API function and data typing.
One reply to one of my posts for help got a straight-to-the-point reply:
GetUnitChampionPoints("player") = 850
GetUnitEffectiveChampionPoints("player") = 720
GetUnitLevel("player") = 50
So the short story is that indeed I've been using the wrong API functions. I've switched to using GetUnitChampionPoints and GetUnitLevel. I haven't tested it rigorously yet, but the change resulted in level 50 CP120 items that were previously "low level" for both my CP200+ and level 43 characters now only being low-level for my CP200+ character, and those items match other rules instead for my level 43 character. It seems to be working now as it should have always worked.

I submitted my modified file as a patch specifically for 1.22.
