GemHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.2
by: Xinhuan, tiker
Search, filter and craft gems in the game!



For non-Jewelcrafters, GemHelper serves as a encyclopedia for gems much like what AtlasLoot Enhanced is for instance and reputation loot. With many search filters for the exact gem colours, stats and materials, users can quickly find the best gem to socket into their new equipment without having to harass a Jewelcrafter or check a website about what gems are available.

For Jewelcrafters, GemHelper goes a step further and allows users to craft gems directly from the GemHelper UI with extra options such as 'Have Materials' that Enchanters currently have. Jewelcrafters are also able to replace the default Blizzard Jewelcrafting UI.

The gem tooltips will list the materials needed to craft it or the location where the gem can be found/purchased. Currently, the database contains 565 gems. All gems should be (more or less) safe to query the server for (the link) because if someone has the gem on the server (in inventory, bank or socketted in gear) and has logged on since the last server reboot, it will be safe to query.

To use GemHelper, type /gh or /gemhelper ingame. If you are a Jewelcrafter, you open the GemHelper window by pressing the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbar or spellbook.

This addon can be used along with CraftList2, ATSW, Skillet.


Quirks:
If you open the GemHelper window via the slash command (/gh or /gemhelper), you will not be able to craft gems from it. You must open the GemHelper window via the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbars/spellbook. This is NOT a bug and is a limitation of the WoW game engine.


What I need:
Localization needed for Spanish. GemHelper will currently work for English, French, German, Taiwan, Chinese and Korean clients.

On french client, there's just a litle prob :


Edit : I've found something

"Diamant Tonneterre (M)" (Earthstorm Diamond) is not at the good place

Some towns' name are not translate :

Stormspire > Foudreflèche
Honneur (honnor) Hold > Bastion de l'honneur

A little error :

"Voir les Gemmes trouvées en instance."

Those small little things in French should be easily fixable in a few days.

GemHelper 1.31 uploaded.

Fixed some French localization issues, as well as made some other changes to use less memory and CPU time. Basically, GemHelper will no longer do anything at all unless it is shown on screen. If you use AddonLoader, GemHelper will now only load when you attempt to open a tradeskill window.

From the user's point of view, nothing should have changed at all in terms of addon functionality. Please report any bugs here.

Just because the addon is not Ace2 doesn't mean it is not efficient. In fact, I'll say it uses slightly less memory because it doesn't use Ace2. It is a deliberate decision not to use Ace2 because Ace2 libraries are horribly bloated. Many addon authors such as Cladhaire (author of Clique, PerfectRaid and a few others) and Tekkub have moved their addons away from Ace2.

That being said, I have written other addons that use parts of Ace2, such as WoWEquip, an in-game CTProfiles-like addon, currently only available on http://files.wowace.com and still in beta status.

Anyway, you can update GemHelper via WowAceUpdater now just like any other Ace addon.

Whenever I open GemHelper v1.6, I start getting the following error over and over in an infinite loop:

[2008/04/04 20:10:32-2677-x42]: Usage: ChatFrameEditBox:SetText("text"):
<in C code>: ?
<in C code>: in function `SetText'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2543: in function `ChatEdit_OnUpdate':
<string>:"*:OnUpdate":1: in function <[string "*:OnUpdate"]:1>

---

For reference, I'm opening it via /gh on a non-JC toon. I also disabled the Skinner skin in case that was the problem.

The error keeps happening even after I close GemHelper. It stops if I enable all the checkboxes in the lower-right and disable all 3 filter categories, then close and re-open the GemHelper frame.

As GemHelper does not do anything with ChatFrames and their editboxes, I believe you have an interfering addon, and I need you to find out which addon it is before I can do anything. Can you turn off ALL other addons and only enable GemHelper and see if this issue still occurs?

Hello, deleting the ".svn" folder that is found inside your GemHelper addon folder will allow WAU to update it. I had packaged that folder accidentally in v1.5 of GemHelper.

If you cannot see this folder, make sure that you can view hidden files in your Explorer. (Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> (checkbox) Show Hidden Files and Folders)

A very helpful addon. I love it.

It seems that in order to use the 2 checkboxes: Have Materials and That <character> Can Cut, the materials must be in my inventory. It doesn't seem to recognize my banked items. So every time I wish to cut a gem I need to go to the bank, grab all the materials, and then proceed to see what I can cut.

Perhaps I am just missing something obvious, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, GemHelper is intended not to interact with items in your bank, as most of the time, you have no gems in your bags, and you are cutting gems for other people that have just traded you some gems, so you just want to see what you can cut with the gem(s) that people have traded you (which are now in your bags).
