FAQ/Loot History backwards compatibility for non-english clients

v2.3+ adds several new entries to the loot history which, among other things, allows tracking of received tier pieces. Due to localization issues with the old records, only english clients could automatically have their loot history updated to the new system.

Non-english clients can also get updated, but this requires at least one award to be recorded for each instance and difficulty using the new system.

 

If you already have that, then simply type /rc updatehistory, and everything should be working.

 

If that for some reason didn't work, or you/your guild doesn't do x raid or y difficulty anymore, then it can still be fixed with some manual editing:

 

First, make sure WoW is closed.

Next, navigate to your SavedVariables folder ("../WoW/WTF/Account/account_name/SavedVariables") and open RCLootCouncil.lua with an text editor (NotePad will do, but it will be easier using something like NotePad++).

 

From here, find the line starting with: RCLootCouncilLootDB  

It should look something like:

 

RCLootCouncilLootDB = {
	["profileKeys"] = {
		["Potdisc - Ravencrest"] = "Potdisc - Ravencrest",
	},
	["factionrealm"] = {
		["Alliance - Ravencrest"] = {
		["Potdisc-Ravencrest"] = {
		{
			["itemReplaced1"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:138222::::::::110:256::5:4:1805:42:1492:3336:::|h[Vial of Nightmare Fog]|h|r",
			["votes"] = 6,
			["date"] = "26/01/17",
			["class"] = "PRIEST",
			["boss"] = "Spellblade Aluriel",
			["response"] = "Mainspec/Need",
			["lootWon"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:140795::::::::110:581::3:3:3514:1472:1813:::|h[Aluriel's Mirror]|h|r",
			["time"] = "21:43:31",
			["color"] = {
				0, -- [1]
				1, -- [2]
				0, -- [3]
				1, -- [4]
			},
			["isAwardReason"] = false,
			["responseID"] = 1,
			["itemReplaced2"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:136714::::::::110:256::23:3:1727:1492:1813:::|h[Amalgam's Seventh Spine]|h|r",
			["instance"] = "The Nighthold-Normal",
		}, -- [1]
          ...
Lots more below

Note the order of the entries is pretty random.

 

We need to add new tags at the right places, one for each of the raids, and one for each of the difficulties. It doesn't matter which character we add them to, the addon will detect it eitherway. The new tags are: 

["mapID"] = 1530, -- Nighthold
["mapID"] = 1520, -- Emerald Nightmare
["mapID"] = 1648, -- Trial of Valor

["difficultyID"] = 14, -- Normal
["difficultyID"] = 15, -- Heroic
["difficultyID"] = 16, -- Mythic

Take a look at the first ["instance"] tag you find. In this example that would be one of the last lines; ["instance"] = "The Nighthold-Normal",. As this is The Nighthold Normal we can insert both the Nighthold and the Normal tag to it. Simply copy paste the relevant line so it becomes: 

...
["instance"] = "The Nighthold-Normal",
["mapID"] = 1530, -- Nighthold
["difficultyID"] = 14, -- Normal
...

Note the comma at the end "," is still there.

Continue searching for instance tags until you find another you haven't added. Just remember you only have to add each of the 6 tags once, and if you haven't done e.g. mythics, then you don't need to add it. For example, if the next you find is ["instance"] = "The Nighthold-Heroic" then you would only need to add ["difficultyID"] = 15, -- Heroic to that one.

 

When you're done, save the file, start WoW, and type /rc updatehistory and you're all set!

 

 

In the example, the end result should be: 

{
	["itemReplaced1"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:138222::::::::110:256::5:4:1805:42:1492:3336:::|h[Vial of Nightmare Fog]|h|r",		
	["votes"] = 6,
	["date"] = "26/01/17",
	["class"] = "PRIEST",
	["boss"] = "Spellblade Aluriel",
	["response"] = "Mainspec/Need",
	["lootWon"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:140795::::::::110:581::3:3:3514:1472:1813:::|h[Aluriel's Mirror]|h|r",				
	["time"] = "21:43:31",
	["color"] = {
		0, -- [1]
		1, -- [2]
		0, -- [3]
		1, -- [4]
	},
	["isAwardReason"] = false,
	["responseID"] = 1,
	["itemReplaced2"] = "|cffa335ee|Hitem:136714::::::::110:256::23:3:1727:1492:1813:::|h[Amalgam's Seventh Spine]|h|r",
	["instance"] = "The Nighthold-Normal",
	["mapID"] = 1530, -- Nighthold
	["difficultyID"] = 14, -- Normal
}, -- [1]
