Hmm... I imagine some kind of merge function... Might actually be interesting, and a bit more challenging than the 10 line patches I've sent to Six already. I'll give it a shot later tonight!

I'm getting an error when I turn on the 'Relocate windowed EVE to fill a monitor' feature then hit ok.

I'm running windows x64 and I also have Visual Studio 2005 installed (but i'm by no means competant with it!)

Great program, you'll be getting some isk from me when fix this bug (a little incentive for you!)
Here's the report...

That might be a little tricky for me to track down, I'm not running x64 Windows, and the window relocating is the one thing that isn't completely managed code. I'll see what I can do though.

This program has worked flawlessly for me.

Today is the first exception - so I am inclined to belive the problem is on my side. My character XML is not updating off of Eve-O.
  1. I have logged in to the charcter site manually and verified that I can browse right to the XML folder.

  2. I have logged into the game.

  3. I have clicked the flashing circle thing in the upper right corner to try again (repeatedly).

  4. I have quit out of and reloaded EvEMon.

  5. I have verified my internet connection by browsing random websites.

  6. I do not have a hardware firewall, or residential router, or any other device between me and the internet.

  7. Last night it was working, since then all I have done is turned my computer off, then on (with some sleeping in between).

  8. This effects all 3 of the Characters that I use EvEMon to track, each on a different account.


That's all I can think of that may be useful. I'm going to keep playing with it.

Having been affected by this for the first time I have a suggestion: When minimized if you can't connect have EveMon show you the skill countdown from the cached data when you hover the mouse over the tray icon. Also having the countdown based on the cached copy on the character skill page would be grand.

Thanks! Cool

Well, they are in my version at least. Razz

I've sent the patches to Six as well, but he seems to have a rather busy OOEL (out of EVE life :p). We'll just have to wait and see if and when my small contribution makes it into the main codebranch and Six releases an upgrade, I guess.

If you like the (next release!) mineral calculator, I'll gladly take your money. It's easy to cast off your shame and all-but-beg when your net worth is under 50m :)

I feel bad for AC. Send any money you were thinking of giving to me to him instead. I have enough (for now). :)

Btw AC, EVEMon crashes when I try to fetch prices.

You can download the source code, and look it over for yourself to see exactly what its doing with your login info. If you can't read source code, you can at least rest assured in the fact that more than a handful of other people with the exact same concern you have already have looked it over.

Version 1.0.25.0 has just been released, with a couple big new things:

* A mineral pricing worksheet, to easily work out how much your mineral stocks are worth. It can automatically grab prices from a couple different places, and in the future you'll be able to add your own price sources as well.
* Better network proxy support, including authentication. Open up the Options dialog and go to the Network tab to configure it.
* Plans can be merged. Use shift-click to select multiple plans in the Open Plan window, then click Merge to create a new plan containing all the planned skills from all the selected plans.

Also, forums are now up at the EVEMon homepage. You can post problems and suggestions and stuff there. Or here in this thread, either place is fine. :)

I can honestly say that I've never seen this before. The fetch system will break if that lpage format changes... is this still happening? I just uploaded a version that should at least spit out a little more info when it fails. I'm guessing sne of my magic regexes is breaking down ><

Great tool, many thanks to Six Anari & all other code contributors.

Something I would like to ask.

When suggesting learning skills to decrease plan time it doesn't seem to ever suggest the actual Learning skill to me no matter how convoluted a plan I create. Is this intentional or an oversight? I'm sure Tripoli would argue the reasons for adding Learning in quite vehemently but I'd like to know a few for leaving it out before I write it off.

If anyone is using ZoneAlarm Firewall & has problems with it connecting to the EVE servers I suggest modifying the custom options for the zone which you have your net connection in (it will either be Internet Zone or Trusted Zone, I use Trusted as I have a router between my net connection and my network and I need to be able to access other machines over the network & have them access mine) and adding port 80 to the allowed incoming & outgoing TCP ports. It might only need one or the other but I really can't be bothered narrowing it down right now. FYI I use ZoneAlarm Security Suite but this should apply to all the Zone Labs firewalls & probably most other companies similar products too.

I tested the latest dev code, and it works for Phoenix Industries now. Still doesn't work with Matari Mineral Index, though:

Originally by: Failed to Retrieve Data
Failed to retrieve mineral pricing data:
Input string was not in a correct format. (value was : 4,081.50)


Edit:
I played around with CultureInfo and NumberFormatInfo, and came up with this for the MatariParser:

Quote:
// price = Decimal.Parse(mineral.Groups["price"].Value, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Currency);
System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");
System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo numInfo = culture.NumberFormat;
price = Decimal.Parse(mineral.Groups["price"].Value, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Currency, numInfo);



Works for me, at least. :)

Great tool and it works fine here......except for one annoying thing

I've installed it in D:\Games\EVEMon .. but when it autoupdates, it always installs in C:\Program Files\EVEMon

Looks like it doesn't look for an installation path, but just defaults the install to c:\program files\

Awesomesauce. That's the solution I was going to aim for once I wasn't too sleepy to think of it. I'll go ahead and port that over to the phoenix parser as well. Thanks a bunch man!

Yeah I noticed this too as I used the binaries originally.
It's not big deal for me but a choice of whether to update using the installer or the binaries would be nice.

Still no word on the Learning skill question I see Crying or Very sad

When you set up a plan of what you want to accomplish (for me a battleship) is there a way to optimize the skills so I can reach my goal the fastest rather than just listing each skills I need in the order I input them in?

Apart from the learning skills, one skill doesn't affect the training time of any other skill. So if both skill A and skill B is a prerequisite for skill C, it doesn't matter if you train skill A first and then skill B, or the other way around. It will still take the same amount of time.

If you put learning skills into the equation, it gets a little more complicated. However, EVEMon should suggest what learning skills to train if there are any that you would benefit from (i.e. that would make the total training time shorter than it should be had you not trained the learning skill(s)). And even though it is slightly broken, it still does a pretty good job from what I have seen.
