Realm Status

Version: 1.1.0.7
by: Ceromus [More]

This application is no longer being updated.


*** ATTENTION: It is important that you report bugs as you find them. Failure to do so will result in a buggy application specially in the european/korean versions that I do not personally use. I'm sure all of you assumed someone would report the europe version playing the alert file over and over but guess again! ***


-----------------------------------------------------------

I wanted a working realm status monitor that plays a sound that will get my attention when the realm goes online or offline. So here is a beta version of my quickly thrown together realm monitor. The application loads the list of realms from "realms.txt" so if blizzard adds anymore servers you can just add the server name to the .txt file and it will work in Realm Status.

This application will check the server status url every 30 seconds. If the source code of the status website changes then it will refresh the website display (save you and blizzard a tiny bit of bandwidth). It then checks the realm you put in the box to see if the status site says its up or not.

Please note that checking the "Alt Method" check box will still not send out e-mail notifications unless you have the "Send Email Alert" box checked as well.


This application is written in C#. I have no professional experience programming I simply create tools that are useful to me to help gain experience. All of my programming knowledge is just from reading books and websites. As I continue to learn I hope to create a much better realm monitor without requiring additional cpu usage.


Requires .net framework 3.5

Future Plans:

- Find a way to make a nicer appearance but at the same time still allow users to add realms and maintain equal or better performance.

- Combine the applications into one .exe file.

In Testing:

- Implement the ability to send email alerts out notifying the user that his server has come up (specially useful for addresses that go to phones). *

*This feature would be useful for those people that go to that place commonly referred to as "outside". Personally I have yet to find this place! Every time I try to locate this "outside" I just get a bar on my screen that says "Fatigue".

-----------------------------------------------------------

Privo - Alleria - US
Yes also use to play on Mal'ganis

-Version 1.1.0.7: No changes to US and EU in this release. Added alt sound method to Korean version. This alternate method will attempt to launch the .wav file directly if for some reason unable to play the sound the normal way. Also fixed strange popup glitch caused by a script on the korean website. As a result of setting the source to fix this issue the scroll bar is going to reset position every minute.

-Version 1.1.0.6: Sorry guys I meant to say Sunday instead of Saturday. I don't know why I typed Saturday so sorry im late. Here is the Europe version with the E-mail and status updates.

-Version 1.1.0.5: Europe version gets a make over. I am just parsing the html code from the europe site then loading that new source into Realm Status. Since I am setting the source the scroll bar is going to reset position every minute. If this is annoying to you then leave a comment and I will try to figure something out. I plan to implement the e-mail notification and status text box on Saturday for the europe version.

-Version 1.1.0.4: Korean version added by request. This korean version also has the email alerts and text box for status updates. Korean version checks every minute instead of 30 seconds (just like the EU version). I did this because the korean monitor website refreshes every 1 minute automatically.

-Version 1.1.0.3: Email alerts for US Realm Status. You can either use SMTP (currently only works with SMTP that support SSL) or an alternate Outlook method that creates an email and shoves it into your outgoing folder. Works fine in Outlook 2007 though the outgoing email seems to stay in that folder even after its sent so you have to deleted it manually later on. Currently Email information is not saved when you close US Realm Status. Im just releasing this version for testing purposes. Also a new text box has been added to the right of the email settings that Realm Status uses to provide error messages or status updates as to what its trying to do. It keeps track of what time your server went offline or online as well.

-Version 1.1.0.2: OMG I just realized I didn't bother to put a status change check in the euro version. Speak up europeans I am not using the europe version so I had no idea it was repeating the same alert over and over.

-Version 1.1.0.1: Fixed missing exception when unable to connect to server. You should get a message box letting you know it was unable to connect now. Also put a quick bandage fix on EU version because blizzard europe decided to add an "ALERT MESSAGE" in their .rss file as an item. You will see it show up in the text box as "Read Error" which indicates something unexpected was thrown into EU blizzards status page.

-Version 1.1: now has a EU realm monitor...consider it even more alpha stage than the US version. I will combine them to make a real application fairly soon. The EU realm monitor checks every 1 minute instead of 30 seconds due to extra work load.

Re: Re: error and desire.

Those fixes for the korean version are going to be delayed a bit. Hoping I will have them in place by end of tuesday. There are 3 unexpected circumstances that added to my already busy schedule.

1. Someone got into my car and took some misc items and possibly some paperwork from my glove compartment....but left my "airpump/flashlight/radio" combo unit in my car seat which was the most valuable item in my car? I can't figure that one out.

2. At my workplace I am no longer allowed to use my laptop while at my desk in between calls.

3. The software I use to sync my code across computers seems to be experiencing server problems and im unable to retrieve the code at this time.

Edit: Looks like I managed to put in the fixes today after all. I didn't throw in the disable offline option yet I will put that into the next update.

I have a no error.
but, some users have error and desire.

1, error


2,disable offline sound and offline check funtion?

3,RealmStatus every pop-up on server refreshing is some inconvenience.

Hm, I'm weak at English. So does not represent my thoughts. sorry. T^T
Have a nice day~!
1. I will put in alternative method to play sound for people experiencing this error.

2. Ok I will add this.

3. I did not know this was happening. I see it happening on my computer...that is very strange. I believe it must be something to do with the korean website refreshing.

Thank you for reporting these issues to me. I have busy week ahead but I will try to get these fixed by end of Sunday November 21st.

Re: Re: Re: Thank you.

Europe version now has the experimental e-mail and status updates. Please test and let me know results.

On another note code is getting messy messy I will probably rework it all from scratch and combine them into one app...eventually.

Re: Re: Thank you.

Europe version gets a face lift

Today around 7:50pm est blizzard USA reported all realms down on their status page for a few seconds even though the realms were up. I am not sure why this occurred but know that it was not a Realm Status bug.

I could use last favor here for making a KR realm status. Could you make a text file and put a realm name on each line in alphabetic order? I cant seem to do this myself it just loads up a bunch of squares. I apologize im very inexperienced in dealing with foreign characters. Just upload the .txt file online some where so that I can download it directly...maybe even put it in a zip file to make sure it stays in a good format.

Edit: Or if someone else knows where im going wrong please educate me thank you


Edit: Nevermind I think I got it now. Had to install asian language support. I will provide an update as soon as I can.

I hope to see good results.
You have a nice day now.
I think I can do it, I need to know what the 3rd and 4th columns are. I see the first one is the icon showing if its online or offline and the 2nd one is probably the realm name. I have no idea what the third one and 4th one is?
