We've released a new version of SWMoniTOR (1.0 build 836)

This update should download automatically the next time you run SWMoniTOR.

The following changes were made:

Peer-to-Peer Communication
  • Improved detection and reconnection of disconnected members in a group/operation.

    There were several backend changes made to the peer-to-peer connection code with this release. Thank you in advance for giving us feedback on your testing. These changes should make the peer-to-peer process more stable with certain disconnect issues but there may still be some lingering conditions we haven't yet identified. We will be continuing to test and fix any remaining issues reported in this area quite aggressively. If you encounter problems have everyone in your group/operation run the troubleshooting report and either copy the results to a post on the SWMoniTOR.com forums or use the "Send report to server" option and then notify us of the group code you were using and the symptoms/problems you were seeing.

Troubleshooting Report
  • If you run a troubleshooting report while connected to a group/operation, you will not be dropped from your current group/operation and information on the connection status for each member will now be reported
  • Added a send report to server checkbox for the troubleshooting dialog

Parse Calculations
  • Improved detection of end of combat for the live graph calculations (amounts will not continue to tick down after combat has ended). These changes only apply to the amounts displayed in the live graphs and have not yet been extended to the drill down tables but will in an upcoming update.
  • Heals on enemies (such as from mezzes) will no longer give credit to a player's outgoing heal amounts
  • Fixed a calculation bug that would occur when the member's machine time passed midnight

Bah I forgot about that .. .and we just complained about it last night :P

Just an FYI to everyone, we've identified another issue that if you attempt to rejoin a group that you are already a member of, it will actually end up disconnecting you. If you feel you need to reconnect to the group but it's still showing you as in the group, disconnect first and then reconnect and it should work a lot better. We'll get this fixed soon but we'd certainly want to hear the reasons for trying to do this in the first place since that may identify another issue.

This update should download automatically the next time you run SWMoniTOR.

The following changes were made:

Peer-to-Peer Communication
  • Creating a new group or joining an existing group while already connected to a group (even if it's the same group) will no longer cause in MoniTOR to appear disconnected

In summary, this program will kill your pets. That is all.

love the program. we have used it now for a few days when we raid, but my only concern is everytime I run SwMoniTOR my windows firewall gets turned off.

Several others have mentioned this as well.

MoniTOR doesn't do anything to Windows Firewall or it's settings. Which version of Windows are you using and what command are you running to see the firewall status as "off"?

I just tested over here using Windows 7 (64-bit), ran MoniTOR, formed a group and then went into Control Panel | System and Security | Windows Firewall and everything seemed to be running as it should for the firewall.

Hi Gaktar--Thanks so much for your work! I have had fps lag problems with the pop-outs / overlays for both your tool and the MOX raid meters, and was just wondering if there's a well-known fix for this. I have a fairly high-end machine, so I feel like there must be some random setting I'm missing somewhere...

I'm running Windows 7, SWTOR in full screen (windowed) on an HD 6870 gpu and an i7-950 cpu.

Have you tried changing the opacity of the overlay window to max (hit the + button until the window isn't see-through at all)? MoniTOR has two types of graphs, one is Overlay which is always on top (and has a transparency option) and the other is Dockable which is intended for a second monitor. Even if you don't have a second monitor, does you get FPS drops with only the dockable graph displayed? If not then I'd say it's probably something with your DirectX/video card drivers and possibly you might find something by running dxdiag but I'm certainly no DirectX expert. It's a long shot but you may want to also look at disabling Windows Aero just to see if that is causing some of the problem.

This is closer to what I'd consider to be the best implementation, though I'm personally against real-time updating data on both a technical and personal standpoint. Not only does it lead to people "watching the meters and not the encounter," but most of the time it's unnecessary traffic. I would have went with a pull strategy, personally.
