Not saving

I haven't been able to use bookworm in a long while now. I get the in chat messages that bookworm is saving each page of the book, but when I go back to read it later it has just blank pages.

Any ideas?

You can just open your saved file in Notepad and go through and look for the places where "\n" starts a new line, like:

line of text from book
\n
next line of text

and delete the linebreaks so it looks like:

line of text from book\nnext line of text

The linebreaks in the file are what's causing the problem.

Re: Data converted successfully with tool

Unfortunately the tool didn't work for me I lost my entire Bookworm set of books (and am still quite POed about it) and am trying to at least restore a 1-year-old backup. But the tool doesn't seem to do anything. I get the same exact errors.

Talking Data converted successfully with tool

I was able to convert my old Bookwormdatafile successfully with Rinkake's tool. It even works after todays patch. Thank you very much, Rinkake!!!
Since having collected almost all books in Azeroth during the past about two years with the help of Bookworm, it would have been just too bad, if all my data would have been lost.

If anybody is interested in my German (!) data file, please let me know.

Ps.: Why can't I edit my recent post?

Old data converted - German client

I converted my old data with Rinkakas tool. I just had to install .net Framework 2.0 first

Now the European servers are down, so I cannot check if everything went fine. Anyways, I am prepared to share my old data with anybody who lost the old data. I use the German client.

Ich habe mit Hilfe von Rinkakas Tool meine alten Bookworm-Daten konvertiert. Da die Server zur Zeit offline sind, kann ich leider nicht sagen ob alles gut gegangen ist.
Falls alles ok ist, bin ich gerne bereit meine Bookworm.Lua-Datei mit Interessierten zu teilen, die ihre Daten verloren haben.

Feature Request

I have this addon since 15 minutes and it is now one of my favs *g*

But one small thing could be better, i think.
On the "Details"-page of the books stands (e.g.) "Found in Stormwind" or something like that.
In the Bookworm.lua is also saved "Der Park". Could you add this information to the details? For example: "Found in Stormwind: The Park" or so...

Would be very great.

(PS: excuse my bad english, not my best *g*)

Re: Re: Transferring old data

(Sorry, I can't write English well )

Thank you Iriel, I am interested in the story of WoW, so Bookworm is my favorite mod.
I am happy because I can use this mod on patch2.0.

And thank you Pentamorous. I refer to your post, I made a tool to convert old Bookworm data file to new format.
It have worked correctly for my old Bookworm.lua.
Note: It needs .NET Framework 2.0.

How to use:
Copy old Bookworm file. Its path is usually "C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/AccountName/SavedVariables/Bookworm.lua". Copy it to another location.

Download tool from here.
http://www.vgmaterials.com/etc/FixBo...ookwormLua.zip

Extract zip file and execute "FixBookwormLua.exe" in extracted folder.

Push "select" button to select old "Bookworm.lua" file.
Selected file's path is displayed in "Old Bookworm.lua file" text box. Confirm it.

Push "start" button to convert file. When convert finished, number of fixed points and created file's name is displayed in larger text box.

New file "Bookworm.lua_fixed" is created in same folder(the folder contains old Bookworm.lua you selected).
Confirm contents of "Bookworm.lua_fixed" and click top-right X to exit tool.

Copy "Bookworm.lua_fixed" to the folder "C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/AccountName/SavedVariables/".
(If "Bookworm.lua" is in that folder, move it to another location or rename it)
And rename "Bookworm.lua_fixed" to "Bookworm.lua".

Launch WoW and /bookworm browse to confirm that file works correctly.


Have a good trip!

Re: Re: Transferring old data

I know how to back it up unfortunately i forgot to. Unfortuantely (probably because i did a reloadui) it over wrote my .bak file as well. So *poof* gone. This is one of my fav mods (Thanks Iriel!) so I hope it gets fixed up soon. Just wondered if I could get a data file from somewhere to replace mine.

Before installing the new version I grabbed out a copy my Bookworm.lua file from my SavedVariables folder. I'm VERY glad I did this because, if I not I would have likely lost all my saved data.
NOTE: if you are scared you may have lost data, you can try to look at the Bookworm.lua.bak file in the same SavedVariables folder.
To get the data back I had to manually edit the data file. I found that preceding every \n there was a hard carriage return that was breaking up the string concatenation. In layman terms that means everywhere in that text file that you see \n place your cursor directly to the left of the \ and hit delete, deleting the return character and moving the \n back up to the end of the line of text above it. (hope that makes sense)

I had more than a years worth of collected data, and this process took some tedious editing, but it does indeed work. It also helps if you have a text editor that will color code LUA syntax. (I used Smultron http://smultron.sourceforge.net/)

Remember to always edit on a copy!

good luck
