CrashProofer

Version: 1.1.2
by: Tiok [More]

Did you know that addons only save their data if you quit WoW normally? If WoW crashes, you have a power outage, or anything of that sort, any data from your latest play session is lost!

CrashProofer helps protect your addon data by backing it up to your other guild members who also use CrashProofer. That way when you log back in, they can send you back the data you would otherwise have lost!

As an added bonus, CrashProofer can be used to synchronize addon data between guild members, so you all have the same info!



This file includes a ReadMe and a sample mod written to make use of CrashProofer. I use it to protect the data in my guild's DKP addon.

Please note that this is a library mod. It provides functionality that can be used by other addons, but does nothing by itself. Installing it won't save data for a mod that isn't integrated with CrashProofer!

How often does this addon send/synchronize the data? Does it avoid doing so during combat and other higher CPU/GPU/Network usage times? I could see potential disconnects or even crashes if done at the wrong times?

CrashProofer makes use of the ChatThrottle library to ensure that it doesn't cause disconnects. It is also hard-limited to no more than one record per frame. It sends new records when they are created, or when you are notified that someone else has records you don't (such as coming back from a crash). Most of the time, all it does is say, "Yup, you all have the same records" and then just sits doing nothing. On my own machine, I can transfer about a thousand records a minute with no problems, and I average a LOT less than that (a few records an hour).

Communication involves 3 types of messages: an Announce, a Request, and a Record. Announces happen when CrashProofer users log on and off, Request are a response to an Announce, asking for records that you are missing. Records are sent in response to a Request, and when a new record gets added to a data table.

I've had all my data get corrupted from crashes more than once. So now I stop design and log out after about 2 hours and backup the data.

I love the concept of this addon. Sadly I'll never get any other guildies to use it but brilliant none the less.

In other words there is no way you lost three weeks worth of data to a power failure unless you had not logged out etc etc in that whole time.
Yeah i know that, wel i haven't loged out for 3 houres or something like that. So i should only loose the configuration of this session like you said. But it killed all of my LUA files they were all empty after the reboot. Makes no sense but it was like that. Nevertheless all i wanted to say is thanks.
Sometimes PC's ar really mysterious ;P
