This stuff isnt working
« on: April 29, 2008, 01:48:19 AM »
Friends list doesnt depict what the game list  does - Zone shows exploration badges? badges show nothing?

Whats this suppose do???

Is there any support that I am simply overlooking and not seeing support other than parsing through potentially hundreds msgs in forums?


Then if your not logged into the game the character stats are not saved anywhere?  There no longer viewable?  That's lame.

Any help or direction to some help would be appeciated  :-)   thanks!!

We currently don't track what zone your character is currently in, so we can not show this on the friends tab in TNT.  We could look into adding this to TNT.

Here is our feedback link (Which is on the menu of the CIT website):

http://www.cityinfoterminal.com/live/feedback.asp

We will add this to the menu for the CGT website.

You can always send any of the Admins or Titan Members e-mails or PMs and we will get back to you, usually within a few hours.

I don't see a reason to store your character information in the TNT application offline.  You can easily view this information from the site.  We can add a way for you to pull up character information from TNT though.

To further explain the TNT items you mentioned in your first sentence.  The Zone Tab shows which Badges are available in that current Zone, highlighted as Green for Obtained and Red for Unobtained.  This way, you know which Badges you can still get from whatever Zone you are in at that time, based on your currently online Character.

The Badges Tab has two functions:

1.  From earning a New Badge, using the Binds/Settitles and/or manually selecting a Badge will cause that Badge to be displayed in Column 1 for a set period of time. 

2. After which, it will be moved to Column 2 wherein that lets the User know that the Badge information has been passed onto the Site.  After another set amount of time, that Badge will dissapear from Column 2 and you are back to looking at a blank area for that Tab.

Indeed, the Character information is all stored on the Sites, the TNT is just the gatherer for the intel, and then it passes it on to our DB.  The Tracking Applications (TNT and HS) are not meant to continuously display saved Data, granted HS can do this to a point, but the ultimate point of the Tracking Applications is just to get the information and pass it on to the correct Accounts on the Sites.

And I think you've got a misconception of the way it works, in general.

We are pretty limited from what we can "read" from the actual game.  Here's a (probably incomplete) list of all the things we actively can track through our TNT software:

- Character Name
- Global
- Server
- Current XP #
- Current Inf #
- Supergroup


Anything else the game displays such as your friends list, etc, we have no way of tracking.

What you see on the "Friends" tab are manual "friendships" you've linked up directly on the City Game Tracker website, and NOT what your in-game friends tab shows you.  It's like a buddy-list of your friends that also use the City Game Tracker site, which is only loosely affiliated with your in-game friends list.


As far as what you should expect:

- Run the TNT software while you play. This software reads those data points listed above and sends them to our server for tracking.

- Log in to www.citygametracker.com and you can manage all that data the game sent us through the TNT software.  You can do a lot more, but the main intent of the site is to simply keep track of your characters, their levels, inf amounts, etc.
