bretg80 -> Paging WitpAE owners / managers (11/28/2015 5:38:08 PM)

As the creator of CombatReporter I would like to integrate it with WitpAE using the same API that WitpAE tracker does. I am not trying to compete or replace tracker, but I would like to get some of the same kinds of information that is available to that tool and provide it in CombatReporter.

I tried to no avail back in 2010/11 to get permission to do this to no avail. Is there anyone out there in WitpAE land who can help me with this request?

There is a different route possible - Damien and Floyd have said it's easy to read the tracker database (I haven't tried yet). I believe as part of their agreement with Matrix they are required to respect FOW so by going through their database FOW remains intact, too. Give them a shout.

Thanks, I have looked at that option as well, but I would like CR to be independent of tracker so that people who don't want to install tracker can still use the tool. Also, they update tracker quite frequently and that may entail a lot of maintenance on my part to stay in alignment with them. Let's see if they have had any thoughts on this over the past few years. If I can't use the APIs then I may align with tracker or I may just provide what I can from the report files the game outputs.

I would say keep CR independent.

I run Tracker and CR at the same time and they complement each other very well already.
I would say don't worry about alignment with Tracker.
