As a newbe to Eve I have only just begun exploring the markets but when I “accidentally” found a nice price diff for an item I begun looking for more but had resorted to typing prices into a spreadsheet to remember them; and then I came across your app. You’ve done a great job, got nothing but praise for it.

Just one stupid question; where are the number of jumps worked out from? I can see they are not related to where I am in Eve at the time.

Thanks again

Sorry, just realised how stupid that queston was; the jumps are taken from the marketlog file aren't they?

Be nice if the app could work out total jumps from one location to another but I realise that would require a database of the entire eve universe, plus I guess most players using this are experienced traders who already have a good knowledge of the typical number of jumps from system A to system B.

So apologies again for my stupidity, but once again thanks for such a great app.

This is intended as a tool for novices and experts alike, but i feel the need for a route planner is not in scope of this app. The data for it readily available, and the shortest path algorithms needed would also be fun to do, but i doubt the value it would bring to the app.

I suggest using one already on the web (fx. Linkage)

The newbe in me shines through again; didnt know that planner existed. Thanks for the link, and now I totally see why you didnt put that in the app, would have been overkill.

Thanks again

Hello

I have problem with market scanner. It dont shows logs from Syndicate region, never used it for null-like region before, but now i try region not from empire and it dont works.

I click load logs, choose item, choose region within empire and in next window Syndicate region, and it's not showing any orders, just like it would be no orders. I checked log, and there are things in it, so i got no idea whats wrong. Something with 0.0 regions?
btw. i got checked to filter from 0.0 security in "min. sys sec"

check screen: image

Any help/suggestion?

Hmmm... Now that is a bit strange. Could you send me a few of the marketlogs from syndicate, so that i might recreate the error. You can send them to eraggan(dot)sadarr(at)gmail(dot)com.

I am tinkering with a new feature, and would like to hear some feedback:

Wallet and journal view based on the Eve API. This would need the full API key from the user (only way to view wallet data).
Is there any interest in this feature. I want it myself, because i often just wanna check my wallet for transactions and then discover that its downtime ugh.
And if you want this: should you be able to register more than 1 account?

What do you think?

Thanks for this nifty tool.

My idea to advance would be another one.
I would like to be able to load and select from "my orders-xxxx" logs. So instead of selecting from different regions you would select from different logs (different time) and could compare buy and sell orders. The idea is:
- to easily decrypt and read the logs
- to easily check your history of market orders (offline) and refresh those that ran out with new, similar ones (online)

I would not suggest to implement API functionality. If you concentrate on your offline version and keep it as simple as it is at the moment, I guess many people including me, will prefer your little tool instead of the cumbersome other tools with API. Also, your tools does not need API access so it is more trustworthy for me than those which need API access.

I like the idea of utilizing the my orders logs. i will look into that. Maybe you could explain in little more detail what you feel would be useful.
Regarding the API functionality. My idea was just an offer to be able to see your wallet - journal and transactions. The API would not be a requirement to use the program. More like a little sort of addon. I just really liked the idea of having the wallet when offline, so i could do a little more planning. So it would in no way complicate the tool. I like it simple myself Smile

Well, the first and easiest step would be to load and display those logs.
Next would be to sort these orders on both sides so that orders with the same ID are next to each other. I'm not into the mechanics of orders but I hope if you change your order (buy/sell price) it does not get a new ID even if the time is reset.
I would use that first in daily business, then new ideas will evolve for new features.
Maybe an assistent that checks all logs available and returns a summary for one item at one place could be useful. But it had to be easy to set up and return useful information, not just a lot of numbers none cares about. I know that sounds vague, but I'm a bit to lazy at the moment to work out a bundle of funtions. :oops:

Thx for the input Maru Sha. Please feel free to add more if you get any ideas.
Regarding the "My orders": It would be no problem displaying the latest. i guess the previous exported "my orders" would be interesting for history issues. I was also thinking of an item selection tree, like the eve market, for easier selection of related items. The question is how to utilize the "my orders" for more interesting stuff. Any suggestions are welcome.

AS some might have noticed the Empyrean Age expansion introduced the new region Black Rise. EMS can not handle black rise yet, as CCP still have not released a data dump. I will upgrade it as soon as it is out.

having an issue with the load times of the program

when i try to click on a topic ( say organize pricing from low to high ) it lags quite a bit.

that normal?

If you mean when the log is displayed in the gridview windows. and it looks like the data is rolling down the screen. Then yes. The redraw performance of the .NET DataGridView is very poor :(

I have tried many workarounds, but none have worked so far.

I have a request:

I would like to be able to see a user defined number of markets, each opening up a new window pane*. For example, I'd like to see the same item information from Lonetrek, The Forge, Sinq Liason, The Citadel, Tash Murkon, etc. Right now I'm doing it by using multiple instances of your program, but it'd be interesting to have it user-defined.

*as in, all of them side by side.

Thanks, and great work. I'll be putting this to good use!

Noted, this is on my todo list as i feel this would increase the value of the app by a large amount. Others have asked for this and i would like to see it myself. Sadly i'm a bit short on time the next couple of months, so i cannot say when i have the time to implement it (its a fairly large amount of code that needs changing).

Next release will probably be when the Empyrean age data dump is out.

What format is the source code file? It's not text, not a zip file, StuffIt can't open it...

Anyway, I'm on a Mac, does anyone know of a Mac version, even a primitive one, of something like this?

At least is there a Item ID# > Item name and StationID# to Station name list somewhere?

Then I can write a primitive market log reader for myself.

It's packed with 7-zip (Open source), which unfortunately isn't available for mac it seems (I thought it was).

The Item name/item id and station relations are dumps i have made from the eve datadump (dump of some of the tables in the eve DB).

Sorry about no mac support but it might work on the MONO framework although i havn't tested it.

New version with Empyrean Age data added is up. Version is now 1.0.11.

The packed source file have been changed to zip to accommodate other platforms.

If anyone have run Eve Market Scanner on the MONO framework on linux or mac, then please post your results.

N.B. Don't mind the grayed out "View wallet" option. It's for a future feature. I just didn't have time to remove it.

...best of luck with your app.

I had done this a while back (in php) to identify market cycles etc.for multiple NPC items to highlight intra-region/system trades.

The tedium of downloading the market snapshots for multiple items, on a regular basis, was overwhelming.

...but then patience has never been my strong suit. ;)

Yes, I agree that the marketlog exports a very tedious. I made the app to quickly identify the cheapest sell order in between two regions, so for me it's a very specific process, and therefore not that tedious. I guess that's what most use it for Smile
