#599 How do i use the video recorder?

Posted by Arcon on 08 October 2013 - 06:31 AM

What is your FFXI window resolution? If it's 1920x1080, you can use that as xRes and yRed to record the video. FPS should be above 10 if you don't want it to be choppy. If you have a good computer, you can do 30 easily. Quality should range from 1 to 100, usually there's not a whole lot of difference between 1 and 100 in the final video, so if your PC isn't quite as strong, I'd suggest going lower.


If it doesn't work it's usually because the resolution values are invalid. For example, I play on a 1920x1080 window (borderless fullscreen), and my PC is quite good, so I can handle the extra stress. Hence I type this:

//video start 1920 1080 30 100

Then again this to stop:

//video stop

I updated the map.ini as well and added missing maps, its still incomplete but hope to get all zones fixed soon, anyway all adoulin seconds map as well as escha-zi'tha should be working, if some zone has no map post it here.

#5252 Simple addon to filter text

Posted by Arcon on 23 May 2015 - 01:08 AM

What do you mean by higher level text? And do you mean that it does not filter out the other entries in there?


It can actually be simplified a bit more:

filter = S{
    '* does not have enough *',
    'Unable to use *',
    '* Left: *',
    '* can only use that command during *',
windower.register_event('incoming text', function(text)
    return filter:any(windower.wc_match+{text})

#4 Welcome to the new Windower Forums

Posted by aureus on 05 August 2013 - 05:57 PM

Hello everyone.
I'm sure you may have noticed a change in our forums.  Going forward, we've decided to get a clean start with the forums and get rid of our backlog of half-relevant information.  With that in mind, we've launched our new site, wikis and forums to support Windower 4.
It's been a few months since we launched Windower 4, and we're pleased with the great response from all of you so far.  The vast majority of our users are using Windower 4 as their daily use, so to that end we have some changes we'd like to announce.
Windower Changes
First, version 3.4 is now officially unsupported.  Fixes both to hook and plugins will no longer be backported to version 3.4.  We're also dropping the "Beta" label from Windower 4.  The stability and reach of Windower 4 has, over the months, improved to the point where it's no longer really an applicable label.  So from here on out, we are going to do our best to keep Windower 4 as stable as possible, and only push out changes after extensive testing.
To help this testing get started, we're also introducing a Windower 4 unstable release.  This is basically our current development snapshot.  Things may, and probably will, be broken with no notice and may not be fixed immediately.  That said, it also contains the most recent things we're working on, such as UI integration with the mouse, a spellcast replacement addon, and the new FFXIDB plugin.
Site Changes
You may have already noticed the changes to our site, but there's a few points I want to touch on briefly.
First, and most important, we have introduced a shared Windower Account between all of our various subsites and applications.  This can be accessed via http://account.windower.net/ and is used to log in to everything on windower.net
We've also set up wikis at http://wiki.windower.net and http://dev.windower.net.  These are doku wikis, no more confluence to deal with.  These will contain info for developers (dev.windower.net), and documentation for users (wiki.windower.net), and use your Windower Account to log in.
The newest addition is our Library application.  This is a site designed to allow you to easily share, rate and comment on spellcast or gearswap files, or even guides or Lua scripts.  This site is still a work in progress, and the design may likely change slightly over the next few days.  It can be found at http://library.windower.net and, again, uses your Windower Account to log in.
While Windower version 3.4 will no longer be supported, we have the forums up (and locked) at http://legacy.windower.net, which can be used to access any old topics you may need.  This is the only part of windower NOT using the Windower Account for authentication, but you can log in with your old windower forums account if needed.

#3459 FPS plugin?

Posted by Iryoku on 17 October 2014 - 01:53 AM

I have heard rumors that this can get you banned because the server can tell you are moving faster or something? I want to use this so bad but scared of being banned. Can someone clarify on this please?






You can't move any faster (this isn't a flee hack). The only thing that happens is animations may play slower than usual if your PC isn't strong enough to run the game at 58.8 FPS, which isn't detectable server-side. This is safe to use.



...7zip files can't be attached, so i placed the original archive in a zip file


Fixed this, you can attach .7z files now (though .zip is still recommended, since anyone can open them without installing anything).

Glancing over whats been changed, I can say with some certainty that Xi View will break - a lot and strongly suggest not using it till I have a chance to update it this evening/tomorrow morning.


Apologies for the inconvience.

Wardrobe 2 has been added to Hook's inventory handler, and the relevant plugins have all been rebuilt to use it. Changes to GearSwap and FindAll to take advantage of Wardrobe 2 have been checked into the development build repo and should get pushed out to everyone soon.

#6422 Infobar settings?

Posted by Iryoku on 23 January 2016 - 07:49 AM

You can open a raw socket connection to a server with the LuaSocket API. There are some basic wrappers to get http and ftp working on top of LuaSocket, but you'll still need to design some sort of REST API on top of that to actually do the queries. This was always something that was planned to be implemented in the FFXIDB plugin from the start (it was originally going to be an infobar replacement), but other higher priority things kept coming up and no one ever got around to doing it. If you're interested in that sort of thing you might want to contact Arcon. The FFXIDB website already has a huge amount of data that's been automatically collected by people using Guildwork.

#5352 BarFiller

Posted by mmckee on 03 June 2015 - 11:40 PM

Try deleting the data\settings.xml file after updating, it might be using the old structured settings.


I too did that.




So I decided to delete everything and go clean. I now receive a new error in which 'it' tells me that it basically cannot find the 'draggable' function.


This leads me to believe that there is an issue with of course images.lua. I have copied several times the images.lua to addon\libs

but i still get the error. I then closed completely the game, copied, and restarted the game thinking it only loads the change to that lua on load and that I would need to reload the entire game to load the changes. Same error. After which I examined the lua and found that the draggable function is not there. This leads me to believe that either I am not copying it correctly (which i am), or that windower is rewriting the file onload every time.


I will continue to troubleshoot this.


*edit #2*
Apparently I'm an idiot. Either that or Windows 10 has a file copy/access level bug..... let's go with windows 10 bug. After shutting down completely again, and deleting fresh again, I copied the files and this time when I loaded the addon it worked.
The text is nowhere to be seen, but I have that issue for a while and will end up changing the location anyway.

Same issues as above.  Tried to Haste Samba as THF/DNC, crashed.  Tried Rudra's Storm as THF/DNC, crashed.  Turned off Gearswap, repeated those 2, no crash.

#3186 Issues with Timers Plugin.

Posted by Krellion on 14 September 2014 - 03:40 PM

In the Timers.xml file under plugins\settings, check the values for bgA, bgR, bgG, and bgB under the global section. By default, R, G, and B should be 0 (zero) to make the background black with A being 128 (half transparent). It looks like this:

        [some settings here]
        [some more settings here]

You can adjust bgA closer to zero to make the background less transparent. (0 = no transparency, 255 = full transparency)

Please note that I have the graphicalMode and slimMode options set to false, and I don't recall how those affect the display of the background. Another thing I've done is move the display so it sits within the chat log on the far right side (near the party info), so I don't have any issues with seeing it no matter what zone I'm in and it usually doesn't impede the text in the chat log either.

#2490 Request: Synergy HQ3

Posted by Arcon on 25 June 2014 - 08:35 AM

This is pretty much botting and something we frown upon, so no can do :)


At least not officially, I'm sure someone somewhere has thought of a way to do this already. Just need to find the right people, I guess.


But good choice on the career path! With a little exercise you should be able to do it yourself :)

#2230 Windower 4 working on Windows 8.1

Posted by Chaosprime on 22 May 2014 - 07:46 AM

Strange for me, it would always crash on the PLAY button. Now that i have direct play enabled, its working, even spellcast with the Konami code (nice touch there xD). I actually stopped playing for like over a year simply because i couldn't get Windower to work :/ Im on 14 now but will play XI from time to time. Just wanted to say my thanks to the windower team. Its a great effort they put in and its very much appreciated here :) Even more so that i can now play again ^^;



Have you got the .net 3 and 3.5 installed? These dont come installed with Windows 8.1 so you might wanna look into it as that could be the problem
