APPLICATION UPDATE!

We have deployed a new update to version 2.0 of our desktop application! If you ALREADY have the application installed, you need to either a) open the application, copy the download link, and open the link in a browser - or b) simply click on this link and update the program: http://cdn-www.swtorguildhq.com/patc...ent_update.exe

If you do NOT have the application, you will need to do a full install from our distribution link - info is found in this spoiler:
Spoiler


We have done a massive design change and we have started work on the custom desktop display of the database - it is very awesome! An image of the application (without the database open) is: http://imageshack.us/a/img27/2450/7mxt.jpg

Current change log info:
  • Changed application workspace design
  • Removed the option to report bugs
  • Autoupdater has been introduced to alert users of updates
  • Framework for new tools have been added to the source code
  • Framework to check if your PC has a VOIP program for a certain guild you are looking at in the database - if you do not have it (say Ventrilo), you will be alerted and directed to the VOIP installers!

Thank you everyone for your love and support! Please keep posting your comments about the desktop application!

We are creating our own database (with the help of some of my awesome friends!) and the fact of why it is so small is because at this time is all manual additions as well has some human verification. Like posts before said we are working on an automated process. If you have downloaded the desktop client you can see a little bit how the OFFLINE version will work - we have copied our database into .asset files and we will use them for an offline mode.

Next Week's Planned Updates:
  • Introduce User Registration
  • Offer an API for using our guild directory

A note on User Registration -
We will be deploying the web based registration and a few days after you will see an update for the client. Registering will allow you to add your characters to a guild, provide more information about your guild (say you want to add or remove certain information.. we will try our best to verify all edits), get updates sent to your email about any new program updates (optional), and more!

A note on OpenGuildDatabase
As we grow our database, we know some websites may want to use our directory as a way to allow for searching, linking characters to a guild, etc. We also know that the guilds we have had contact us want to make sure their information is correct and not altered. We will only be releasing the API through a secure process requiring the party wanting to have access to our database fill out a request form.

This request form will require information such as: Intended Use; Website; Link(s) to pages that will/may connect to our API; Owner of Website - we will also have a terms of use and require that all information pulled from our database is not altered in anyway. This form will be sent to use via email and we will manually process the requests. If a request is granted, we will email the contact with their websites own key to connect to our database, as well as references to how we have our API currently set up. If a request is denied, we will give reason to why it was denied and you will have you wait a week (7 days) before you can resubmit a request. That being said, please fill out our API request form to the fullest.

Wait, I do not want my guild in the API!
We understand why some guild may not want to be included in our API database, however we ensure you that if your guild's information is improperly modified via the recipients website, we will deny them access to the database and remove all API keys they may have. It is important to note that NO ONE can change the information in OUR database unless the person who SUBMITTED the edits was the first person who contacted us - else we double check with human verification before we make any type of edit. If you wish to be removed from our API database, you will need to contact us at support@swtorguildhq.com with your guild's name, your name, and why you wish it to be removed. We will attempt to verify your identity as either the guild leader or an officer of the guild.

TLDR; no one can change your guild's data' - being in the API database means more ways of gamers to find your guild!



MORE INFO TO COME!

I don't get what to do on this website. I thought, it is intended to search for guilds. I expected to be able to browse through a server's guilds or something. Why do I have to enter a search term? Since I entered a wildcard search term (*), I get warning messages in some /home/ludwig01... I cannot change my search anymore. How is it possible to see the guilds of my server ToFN?

Good Afternoon,

First of all, thank you for your bug report! I am currently working on resolving the wildcard search term - I am pleased to let you know, however, you can do a wildcard search with a few letters - so ARM* would work (it would pull up guilds with arm in it) , however Army * will not work. Like I said I am currently working on a fix for this.

If you want to search for guilds on a certain server, at this time you would need to type the server name, HOWEVER I am pleased to also let you know that when we take down our site this week for updates, we will be adding this option as a dropdown selection box!

We are still indexing guilds and we welcome all guilds to use the email method mentioned above or wait for our script to reach their guild. We are also working on creating characters on each server (two on each - one imp one rep) that are representatives of us and will scout for more manual additions.

I hope this helps!

We have released beta test client build 2.1.0.1 - please check for updated in the program itself!

This weekend, we will be closing our public testing and will prepare the final version for Oct. 1st! We will remind everyone in the program that they will need to uninstall the program by Monday, Sept.30th, so there will be no conflicting aseets in the instal directory. We will also be removing the original serial number requirement so the program can be installed at will.

PLEASE UNINSTALL ALL BETA BUILDS!

Everyone will need to download the retail client at http://www.swtorguildhq.com/download.php

If you are unsure if you have the retail client, check where the program was installed (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\The Army of Light\SWTOR Guild Headquarters - Desktop Client or C:\Program Files\The Army of Light\SWTOR Guild Headquarters - Desktop Client), and look for a folder called SWTOR Guild Headquarters - Desktop Client. If you do not see that, uninstall and click the download link above.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UPDATE THE BETA CLIENT - YOU WILL DOWNLOAD THE WRONG FILES.

We are unable to update beta clients to the retail client because the beta client used different resources/assets and would require a larger download/more complicated instructions

Getting back to the web development side of things..

We are preparing to release an option to allow anyone to link TORParse.com logs to a certain guild using an online form. Once the form is submitted, we generate data about the raid that was linked and we post a guild raid overview that can be viewed by simply clicking on a guild name in a search. We are only posting statistics on a KILL - wipes will not be displayed.

For example, if I submit this parse for The Army of Light's HM DF run, http://www.torparse.com/g/8663, this is what would happen -

I fill out the form - directed to a splash page saying statistics will be generated within 24 hours - That form you submitted and queue to be "dug upon" by server side scripting, where it looks at the boss kills on the left, determines if it was a kill/wipe, player names, DPS/eHPS(HPS), and soon if it were a HM, SM, or NiM boss (this later portion would require manual browsing to determine the level of difficulty). Once it is determined that it was a Kill, it was an operation's boss, and that the parse does indeed belong to the guild that it should be with. general statistics are generated, including graphs, player ranks, and more.

It is a complicated process but it is something that I think will be an added bonus to submitted a guild to us, as well as using us to search for a guild!

More info to come, including a release date, soon!
