Hey,

It seems all applications that display/export my characters journal data can only look back as far as the last 50 entries. Is this some sort of new bug, or apart of some master plan by CCP to reduce lag or something? Im really wanting to export all the journal entries that I have in there and its becoming tedious if I need to do it every few hours.

Thanks,

Nyssah

Which app do you mean? The author cannot help you without knowing you are talking to him.
If it is about your own application, search for "journal walking". That is an often discussed issue so you should find lots of info about it. Like here on the forum. I also made a post about journal walking in my blog, and I guess I am not the only one.

I'm having trouble with this, just been playing around with the API in a browser. Am I correct in thinking I should be able to walk back through the Journal to fetch entries up to a month old? I only see to be able to get a week or so (i.e. the first page).

Can anyone confirm if the journal walking is working at the moment? If so I'll try harder...

You're correct in that the API should be able to go back a month but it looks like you're having the same issues I've been having in that it will only retrieve so many, irrespective of whether I use walking or not, or whether I retrieve 2560 entries or just 50. I just can't get anything prior to 28th June.

The reason I am being broad is because its happening across all 3rd party programs that retrieve journal data, its also happening when downloading journal data from character screen in eveonline website as well. Only last 50 entries are only ever retrieved, and its normally 50 entries from a few hours ago. CCP have defiantly changed the API to only give out a restricted number of entried, was hoping for some information on why, and if it was a permanent change.

Yeah I can't get back past the 27th of June. So I think there is something going on here, which would explain the problems you've been having with various applications Nyssah...not that that helps you much.

I did not create any apps using the wallet yet, but I can confirm this behaviour. It does not allow to go back an entire month.
Did someone post a bug report?

I posted a bug report a month ago and it's not been looked at yet.
