  • Doominator said: The program won't remember my ascensions class which is thaumaturgist and gives me random suggestions for other ascension classes such as evocation or geomancer. I can't really say much about what plugins offer you except to s…
  • My initial guess is that whatever you are telling your 3rd party firewall is not enough to give the kind of access the FFXIV plugin wants. Network parsing requires something called promiscuous mode which means that the program is not reading dat…
  • The problem with your two examples is that a period is a reserved character for regular expressions meaning "one of any character".  So the regex, You cast Miasma. Matches, You cast Miasma. And matches, You cast Miasma II. The "one of any …
  • What the trigger and text looks like is still pretty vague to me, so I guess I can't help you with that. What I was talking about earlier is that the functionality is easy to recreate using Spell Timers and their various options. Clipboard I…
  • I'm having trouble understanding that second paragraph.  It makes me wonder if the trigger regex is too general purpose or something. But anyways, a long time ago, a trick that I used to use was to attach a trigger to a timer.  The timer would h…
  • Essentially what the issue sounds like in technical terms is that the main UI thread is blocking.  Meaning, it's trying to do something and not letting the GUI refresh/repaint/listen to inputs/etc.  Why it's getting stuck for a rare number of people…
  • It really is a very different problem.  I've never seen anything like that and I can't even begin to guess at what elements are being shown here.  The black triangle at the bottom while unique, offers no clues either. I don't imagine bad DPI set…
  • I guess all I have left are questions about your usage behavior... which would only prompt me to suggest changing said usage. Like... if you ever minimize the application... if you ever use the tray icon options... if the mini-parse window wo…
  • Hmm, that really is defeated. Did none of the solutions listed on that page help?
  • Sounds like the .NET Framework is fairly corrupted in some way. A simple Google search says you should run "sfc /scannow" to fix it. https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/configuration-system-failed-to-initialize-windows-10-solved/ Odd tha…
  • Reinstalling ACT shouldn't really accomplish anything unless you tell it to delete all of your settings in the process.  It's possible some rare combination of settings causes this and keeping most things at default would help.
  • It is not a link.  It is something you type into an admin elevated command terminal or run dialog.
  • Over the years, I've heard of something like this a couple times.  But it's never been reproducible for me and if anyone has ever fixed it, they didn't mention how. The only things I can suggest to try are dumb things like somehow repairing a .N…
  • Primarily, ACT is designed for games that choose to offer combat logs outside of the game.  It does not have any capabilities built-in to get around such a requirement. That said, the FFXIV game does not offer any such thing.  The parsing plugin…
  • If you're having trouble with them, I can only assume that some of the data they gather is from the parsing plugin directly... and in absence of that data, it ends up in a situation it wasn't designed for and breaks.  If they had any interest in doi…
  • One of your screenshots shows a UI element added by the FFXIV parsing plugin.  Please do not have more than one parsing plugin enabled at the same time for any reason.  I would go so far as to say it would be a good idea to restart ACT after disabli…
  • Well, I can try giving you some instructions to try and see what's going on and/or fix it... Presumably there's something wrong with the file that ACT tries to read at start up... so we'll try to have it generate a good one from the backup itsel…
  • You can sort of think of ACT as base program that you(someone) tell how to interpret text files.  Various plugins exist for different games to parse their text combat logs.  Since I played EQ2, I made several of the plugins for that game which had v…
  • These are the closest matches I found on the author's website: https://github.com/ravahn/FFXIV_ACT_Plugin/issues/140 https://github.com/ravahn/FFXIV_ACT_Plugin/issues/134 If you need additional help, I would start there.
  • The first time setup is a manual affair. Send me a PM with the title and description and I'll send you the information to get started.
  • As a side note, you can get your plugin's folder path using something like: ActGlobals.oFormActMain.PluginGetSelfData(this).pluginFile.DirectoryName.
  • Mostly it has to do with how Windows loads DLLs and when the .NET Framework thinks they are required.  The first place Windows looks is in ACT's folder.  If your plugin DLL is in some random location, Windows won't look there just because ACT …
  • Typically .NET assemblies will be lazy loaded.  Meaning ACT will only load this Overlay.NET assembly when it encounters code that references it.  That does not mean when it is used, but the first time it is in scope. If there is a reference to a…
  • Hmm, I'm not really sure how far you'll ever get with that.  Either the plugin uses a Windows driver to inspect network packets, which it likely won't find in Linux... or it reads memory regions of the Windows process.  (Usually both?)  Does Wine ev…
  • I suppose you could replace the break with something like the second line: if (attacker == victim || attacker == petSplit.Replace(victim, "$2"))     if (new List() { "Tormented Visage", "Skill2" }.Contains(skillType) == false) break;      // You do…
