Suggestion: Save a list of raid keys/tags

I tend to run some raids lately with various guilds and it was just an idea. I currently have no issue just jotting down various keys.
Dual Targeting, any AAA MMO released today should have this included. Don't let your next one release without it.

So what exactly is Dual Targeting? You have 2 targets available at all times, one offensive and one defensive. That's it, it's that simple.

I wish that there was a drop down list for previous combats for the whole raid.

When you kill Z&T the other guy comes out, and it wipes it clean. Unless you're watching specifically at that moment, you don't see the raid wide meters.

Do you have any further information on this?
Don't you think if BW was banning accounts for using a particular parsing program that violated the EULA, BW would remove the thread that provided a link to download that program?

It is very clearly some idiot who was speedhacking or using some other cheat and is just terrible at making up excuses for why he's been banned.

After yesterday's test the Cloaking Screen bug is still not fixed it seems.
At the last boss in Denova, and all the other bosses, when using Cloaking screen as a Operative, your dmg gets reset to 0, since you briefly leave combat.

Is there any way to get an update on this?

I agree this can be frustrating and happens because you're taken briefly out of combat between Z&T and the handler. Due to the nature of how the raid data is compiled, I don't plan on having a dropdown in the tool for past raid fights, that is the purpose of the web site. I know the archived fights on the site have had a lot of issues, but I've been working a lot on it and we ran an 8 man raid last night and for the first time it actually recorded every pull correctly for the whole night. So, I'm finally starting to feel better about this. (I'm sure its not perfect though)

^ This

I'm being very careful not to do anything that would violate any of the games terms and this is the first I've heard of this "incident". If for some reason this really is true, please tell this person to feel free to give me the exact details of what my program violated.

Could you please email me your log and I will take a look at it? This issue is a pain and I really want it fixed.

Any chance you'll start a ranking system on a per fight basis? You should work with Mr Robot to upload to them. They have an awesome interface for uploaded logs, and you guys have a great in game interface. A combination of the two would be amazing for the community. Then we could have a worldoflogs type thing where we see top DPS.

Additionally.....
I think there's a bug in your DPS calculations, or in ACT.

I've been comparing a lot of fights to ACT and I'm getting very different results. Here's an example:

http://memoriesofxendor.com/parser/raiddata.aspx
raid key: v_r_19169

I put the log into ACT for the fights...

To be honest, the numbers I was getting by doing the calculations manually are closer to the ACT meters numbers than yours. Would you like me to upload the log for you to check out, or is this a known issue?

So, there are definitely slight differences in the duration. On the Bonethrasher fight, for example, its a difference of 6 seconds. There's a couple possibilities for this discrepency:

1) Right now, I'm using the raid leader's duration to calculate those DPS figures on the web site. If for some reason, your leader's state was off (his character was dead, he was lagging, etc.) then you can see slight differences from the duration in your log.

2) They are calculating the end of combat differently than I am. If there is some residual damage at the end of the fight, I may be adding that into the total duration (a lingering DOT for example). Exiting combat can be inconsistant across 4/8/16 players.

Those things being said, there are some things I could attempt to do to fix this. I could try averaging the duration across multiple people to maybe get it more accurate. Or I could not add to the duration when dealing/receiving damage after combat is completed (this is possible, but I don't know if that's what is going on here). In general, the dps I'm showing is meant to be a relative comparison (within that fight), but I understand it has value if it can be accurately compared between fights. I'm definitely keeping this stuff in mind for now though.
