Arrow Carbonite 3.3201 Beta Released

After tons of work we finally have the beta of the new version ready. The beta zip file is on our website at the link below. Beta releases will be handled like this to allow for simple updates and removal of the files as needed. The beta versions are for our supporters to try out and give us feedback. Please do not give the link or files to others.

(3.32 released. Link removed.)

The big change is the addition of the CarboniteItems addon to the zip file. Data for almost 26000 items smashed into only 3.6 megs of addon memory was difficult, but we think it was worth the effort. The many categories with searching and column sorting allows for quick browsing of items. All instances with items from each boss are included.

All initial CarboniteItems design goals were met, but we still have a few more improvements in mind. Your testing and feedback is appreciated.


From the ReadMe file:

-- Carbonite Items

CarboniteItems is a data addon that contains information on over 25000 game items. It is a load on demand addon, which means it is not actually loaded until you use the "Items >>" section of the Guide. Left click the "Items >>" text to view the CarboniteItems data.

Mouse over the item icons to see a Carbonite generated tooltip of information on the item. The tooltip is similar to the normal game tooltip, but there are some minor differences. If the item icon is not shown as a ?, then the item is in the game's cache file, which means you can hold down the alt key and then mouse over the icons to see the game's tooltip for the item.

The "Search [click]" edit box filters the items shown in the list on the right side by searching the Carbonite tooltips of the items currently show. Some examples:

spell pow (items with spell power)
hit rat (items with hit rating)
mana per (items with mana regeneration)
quest: (items from a quest)
minor (only minor glyphs)

The first tooltip line that matches the filter will be shown in the Info3 column.

Left click a column header to sort by that column.
Shift left click a column header to decrease the column width.
Shift right click a column header to increase the column width.
