    Default [Request] Raid Loot Tracker

    I would like an addon that Tracks what Epics drop in a raid/instance and who won them. It could run off the chat log if the api didn't support it. There would be one window that when open would display three columns; <Player> <Item> <Misc>. The first two are self explanatory and would be filled by the Addon, the third would be a drop down with four Values; <MS> <OS> <Break> <Blank>. Being able to sort by Columns would be nice as well as the ability to save/ retrieve data from previous raids, neither would be essential.

    Can anyone tell me if this is possible, would they be willing to make, donations for work would be possible.

    <Bump> I'm willing to compensate anyone that wants to make this Add-on a reality.

    The current Addon API doesn't support this. API doesn't know about drops and there is no chat API yet, so an addon of this sort is not possible to do atm.

    However, using /log and having an external app do it, is possible (but then this is not an addon anymore).

    I see, do you know if ACT would be capable of handling this?

    If someone writes a non-combatlog plugin for ACT that tracks loot messages then yeah, this would be possible. However (at least afaik) you can't have those interactive elements (dropdowns) you mention in ACT.

    This leaves you with the list only (+ the history tracking I guess), but to just get a filtered list out of the non-combat log why not just use an app for log monitoring (like mTail or smth similar) and write a regex for the filter?

    If you don't need it in real-time (for example if you just need a loot dump after a raid) then you could use Notepad++ and a macro to dump all the loot data to a text file that you can then use in any way you want to.

    I would like to add that currently only your group's loot shows in the chat. So when someone in the raid that is not in your group gets something you would not know this.
