About
Requres FuBar
NiHao is an addon inspired by the Warcraft music video of the same name. Essentially, it tells you how much money you are making when you're out farming - whatever it is you farm for.

*Counts cash drops from mobs
*Converts item loots into values
*Adds all this up and gives you both a total value and a value per hour of your farming run

Currently, NiHao will consider all items worth vendor buyback by default. There is a slash command to set a custom value for items if you want to override the vendor price (this is something you'll most likely want to do for more accurate gains/gains per hour display).

AucAdvanced support has been added, so you can tell NiHao to use those values rather than vendor buyback when data is available (if AucAdvanced is installed and running).

v0.8 Has added the custom price menu so you can view and edit any custom prices you currently have set. You can also add new items to the list using the itemID, the item link (using /nihao set as defined below), or even by name (if you have Fizzwidget's Linkerator installed).

NiHao will not consider any money or items you loot/trade/craft/buy/sell if you have either a crafting window or vendor window open.

"Sessions" - NiHao's FuBar menu has several options for handling sessions.
*Sticky Session - All of the items, money, and time values will be saved when you log out if you enable this. If you disable it, NiHao will reset when you log out.
*Start Paused - If this is enabled, NiHao will be paused when you log in OR reset the current session (you'll have to unpause it to start the session when you are ready).
*Session Reset - This option will dump the current data in your session, making everything go back to zero. If you have the data saved to a named session, the saved session will not be reset: you'll have to delete the saved session to remove the values there.
* Session Save/Load/Delete - NiHao lets you save sessions under a custom name so you can load it again at a later time.

Usage
Right click on NiHao's FuBar/Minimap icon to access the menu. Some commands are slash commands ONLY.

/nihao - Shows the help text, containing possible commands
/nihao menu - Opens NiHao's FuBar menu
/nihao set [itemlink] coppervalue - Forces the item linked to be worth the amount entered
/nihao unset [itemlink] - Removes the custom price (if one was set) for the item linked
/nihao vendor [itemlink] - Forces the item linked to use vendor buyback (Mainly used when you have AucAdvanced pricing enabled and would like an item to not use the AucAdvanced value)

Bugs
If you encounter any bugs, please use my Google Code tracker.
July 24, 2008:
- Removed quite a bit of code which has been replaced with less, more efficient code.

April 24, 2008:
- Updated TOC to 2.4
- New menu interface for custom item values (slash commands still work)
- Several small bug fixes.
- Moved source to a new repository, so no need to worry about the revision number changing dramatically :)

April 20, 2008:
- Flagged as 2.4 safe. No 2.4 TOC update yet, however.

I've placed this addon on the backburner for now. I was working slowly on a NiHao2, but have been quite busy in the real world, and never finished it. I'm fairly certain that NiHao will not work with WoW 3.x, due to the changes in the game's itemLink format.

I do hope and plan to get this updated eventually, but I apologize for not being able to take care of it faster.

If anyone wants to submit a fix(es) for this, just send me a message on the site here, but don't go out of your way for it. NiHao was my first 'real' addon, and the code is pretty horrendous (hence the NiHao2 being worked on).

Yes, the items considered are ones that you have looted, and no changes are made to the list if you sell/trade/disenchant an item. It might be something I could put into a future version, to check for such things, but the current idea is to track what you looted, ignoring what you did with the stuff .

As for resetting, I sometimes find myself leaving NiHao running for long periods of time, but normally I only run it while grinding/farming or running an instance, and that's all I need to record for the most part.

I'm not sure if you meant there was a bug with the refreshing, or if the issue was that it continued to include items you got rid of (which is an intentional oversight as I mentioned)?
