Changes from 3.0.05
  • Fixed an error in MasterLoot mode that made all rings seem negative to everyone.
  • Enabled GearScores in LFG interface.
  • Enabled option to show GearScore's in Chat Frames, "/gset chat"
  • Using GearScores in chat frames will show messages like "[3. LookingForGroup][Arxkanite] (4597): Please Invite for Daily Heroic!"
  • Clicking on the "(4597)" will open up GearScore profile for "Arxkanite" in this example.
  • Updated Dungeon list to reflect blizzard's policy of no longer refering to the instances as normal/heroic but 10/25man instead.
  • Added Recommended GearScores for Trial of the Crusader 10/25man
  • Reduced system resources pertaining to textures and implimented more efficient code.
  • Added "Empty Slot" background pictures on the profile screen.
  • Removed "You arn't in a party." spam. This fix will actually remove the offending spam from ALL addons you have installed.
  • Added standard "X" closing buttons to all frames.
  • Added an "Invite" button to the Profiles Frame.
  • Pruning will now correctly remove old entries.
  • When looking up a profile that person's name will now automatically be inside the search box.
  • Moved the "Profiles" button on the database frame and added a "Friends" button which will allow you to see all your friends GearScores.
  • Spamming GearScore info to chat looks much better then before.
  • GSPAM IS BACK! "/gspam " or "/gspam " or "/gspam whisper " or finnaly "/gspam channel "
  • "" can be "party" to spam your party, "raid" to spam your raid or "group" to spam your raid if your in one or your party otherwise.
  • "" can be "raid", "party", "say", "channel", "whisper", "officer"
  • Example 1 "/gspam group" -- spams your raid or party depending which one your in.
  • Example 2 "/gspam raid guild" -- spams your raid scores into guild chat
  • Example 3 "/gspam party whisper Arxkanite" -- spams your party scores to player "Axkanite"
  • Example 4 "/gspam group channel 1" --spams your group scores into channel #1

Changes from 3.0.04
  • If somebody in your guild sends a GearScore Addon Message to Guild Channel, you will no longer repost it in party if they are also in your party.
  • If somebody in your party sends a GearScore Addon Message to Party Channel, you will no longer repost it in guild if they are also in your guild.
  • GearScore will now count all outgoing AddomMessages from all addons you have installed. If the number of outgoing messages excedes safety limits GearScore outgoing messages will fizzle. This should help prevent disconnection issues from GearScore when large bursts of data from other addons occur at the same time as GearScore's.
  • You can now scroll though pages on the Database window with your mouse scroll wheel.
  • Dates listed in the database window will now be listed as "x days old".
  • It will no longer be possible to enter letters into numeric only fields.
  • As you type info into the database's search box results will display automatically.
  • A bug in Masterloot mode where a "One-Handed" weapon compared to a player with a "Two-Handed' weapon would show a GearScore increase equal to the GearScore of the "One-Handed" weapon; has been fixed. (Untested because I couldn't get a Warrior to help me!)
  • GearScore will no longer scan players or send AddonMessages when a player loots an item or gold, or when they move an item in their inventory around, or when they post auctions. These were causing a masstive output of GearScore messages if several people were in a group and all had GearScore when one player loots a monster and gold is distrubted each player would then scan each other and themselves and output the info to guild/party.
  • GearScore will no longer output an AddonMessage for each item of gear changed while swapping gear with the in-game equipment manager. It will now wait until change is complete then send a single updated message to guild/party.
  • GearScore will now correctly detect if a warrior is TitanGripping when they use a 2h + shield.
  • Fixed an issue with Localizations not working correctly.
  • Added partial koKR Korean locale, Thanks Shoota!
  • GearScore's for hunters now work differntly.
  • GearScore's for bows/guns/crossbows for hunters will now be much higher then before (5.3224 times)
  • GearScore's for other weapons for hunters will now be worth much less then before (0.3164 times)
  • Hunter's will now see 2 scores on weapons, both a regular GearScore and the score value to a hunter. Unfortunately this score will appear on Wands because they are listed as the same item type as crossbows.
  • Masterloot mode updated to include the new Hunter Calculations.
  • For Example: If your hunter had [Furious Gladiator's Greatsword](GearScore: 805) and [Furious Gladiator's Longbow](GearScore: 127) your total GearScore from weapons would be 932.
  • Under this Update Your Greatsword would be worth 254 GearScore, and your Longbow would be worth 675 GearScore for a total GearScore of 929. Three GearScore is lost in rounding of functions.
  • However if you had a Shitty Weapon, and an amazing bow such as: [Ingvar's Monolithic Cleaver](GearScore: 337) and [Furious Gladiator's Longbow](GearScore: 127) your total GearScore from weapons would be 464.
  • Under this Update your Cleaver would be worth 106 GearScore and your Longbow would be worth 675 GearScore for a total GearScore of 781. Now that your ranged item is weighted much higher for hunters you would have gained 317 GearScore.
  • Howeer if you had a shitty bow, and an amazing weapon such as: [Furious Gladiator's Greatsword](GearScore: 805) and [Amanitar Skullbow](GearScore: 86) your total GearScore from weapons would be 891.
  • Under this update your Greatsword would be worth 254 GearScore, and your Skullbow would be worth 457 GearScore for a total GearScore of 711. You would lose 180 GearScore because your bow isnt as good of quality as your mainhand.
  • Because of the changes to hunters in this version players will see differn't GearScores for eachother for the first time in a very long time. Please ask your friends to upgrade.
