Since DAoC in Europe was patched to version 1.70 the xml roster is no longer showing any character information other than the name.  It seems that the guild realm points and numbers of members are updating but the individual level, ranks, classes and realm points are blank.

Is work being done to correct this?

It seems only to be affecting the european guilds, not those playing on US servers.

Oh, and can we have the new character classes included in the drop down list on the character editor?

Thanks.

Can add the new classes, do you have a link I can take a look at for a list?

As for the XML, take a peek at the European feed and then at the non-European:

European
Non

What it looks like they've done on the Euro side is replaced all of the fields we used to pull text data from into relational identifiers.  So instead of “Dwarf“ or “Healer“ they have “21“ and “47“ (not true matches, but just an example of the difference).  I don't know if this was intentional, but it makes parsing the XML extremely difficult, without any kind of key or legend to the values...

Have you seen any posts or information from them on this change?

I went ahead and made it so it at least parses the data (they've changed the basic structure of the XML document as well -- using attributes in the character elements instead of child elements like it was before), but you'll see what I mean now about the class/race identifiers instead of text.

Edit: This is from their XML info page:

We will provide you with all the necessary information concerning the use of the XML with New Frontiers as soon as the new Roll of Honour is online.

Looks like we might be in a holding pattern...

I'm afraid I can't be much help to you on unravelling the mysteries of XML because my programming language stills are still back in the days of Commodore Vic20 BASIC!! I had suspected though that GOA had made some major changes and I wasn't sure if you had been notified of them, hence my forum post.

The new classes for the drop down list are:

Bainshee
Vampiir
Heretic
Warlock
Valkyrie

The spellings of vampiir and bainshee may look weird but that is how they are spelt in the game.

The mythic page that has all the info on the classes is at:

Hope this helps.

Aaron,

I've spent the last week or so on this....kinda me off that they (GOA) went for some database format, but hey-ho.

Here's the lists you need:

Class and Race

I've used xsl:include for this and kept the file separate..seems to work fine for us on guildportal.chosen.com



PS The housing entry should be <guild name .... @housing
