Server Migration

*Update* 7 Apr 2013 - Okay, after a very long week of getting everything working correctly on the new server, I'm finally finished! I will be taking the website (and ingame client server for those of you in the alpha) offline sometime in the wee hours of the morning tonight.  I will then point the DNS for the website at the new server.  It shouldn't take more than a few hours for most people to be re-directed, but it may take up to a few days.  Unfortunately, DNS propagation is out of my control, but most people will experience very little interruption in service.

As a friendly reminder, all data on the website will be rolled back to 31 March 2013. Any combat logs uploaded to the website after that date will need to be re-uploaded tomorrow.  Thanks.


*Update* 2 Apr 2013 - I have run into some issues during the data transfer that have greatly slowed the process.  The migration is still proceeding, but at a rather slow pace. It may be a few more days before everything is migrated. In the meantime, feel free to use the website as normal, just remember that data will still be rolled back to 31 Mar 2013. Thanks.


*Update* 1 Apr 2013 0145 PST - Just wanted to give everyone an update and let you know that I have transferred everything from the old server to the new server. I'll be getting everything setup and then switching the site over to the new server. This means that any combat log data uploaded to the website from Sunday 31 Mar will need to be re-uploaded once the migration is complete.  As long as everything goes smoothly, this should be done sometime today.


Hey everyone. I am currently in the process of migrating servers.  The website may become unavailable for an extended period of time. I will remove this post when the migration is complete. Thank you!

TORParse Desktop Application Update

Hey everyone, I know it's been quite some time since I've posted an update on the progress of the ingame application.  Apologies for the drought of information, but fear not, I have been quite busy.  The ingame application is coming along very well and is getting closer and closer to being ready for the public. Below, you will find some new screenshots and information.

This image shows the "My Logs" area of the ingame app. This area allows you to do a few useful things:

  • Set the parser to load your newest combat log automatically
  • Load previous combat logs into the parser so you can check out your stats from older logs
  • Upload combat logs directly to the website if you need them broken out even further than the statistics currently offered by the ingame parser

The image below shows the "Group" tab.  Group parsing is coming along great.  All the buttons listed below currently work.  Group setup is very easy.  It is modeled after SWTOR groups in the sense that you invite people to your group and that's it.  No syncing or anything else required to get started. The nice thing about group parsing is that it supports all the functionality of the solo parser, including viewing information from previous fights and even including your companion in the mix if you're just questing with a friend.

The image below shows the "Group Damage Dealt" screen. As you can see, the bargraphs have been slightly redesigned to allow for information to be better presented.

The image below shows the "Damage Dealt" screen from the solo parsing portion.  It too features the redesigned bargraphs. Text too small for you? Due to great feedback from the alpha testers, font options to all ingame overlays have been added!

So, that's all I've got to show this time. I've also done a tremendous amount of work on the backend/server itself, which doesn't have a GUI to speak of, so I can't really show you much there.  But, everything is coming along very well and the parser is quickly approaching the "beta" milestone, at which point it will become more widely available for use.

PTS Log Requests

*Update 3/12* Thank you for all the combat logs. I really just need Scum and Villiany 16 Story Mode now, especially Styrak.  The logs below are still okay to send to help me confirm the data I have.

Hey everyone, I'm working on adding all the new boss encounters to the site.  I have all the new bosses added to the database but I need to confirm which boss belongs to which version of the instance.  If you can help, please email me ( logs from the following instances below.  Please indicate the mode of the instance you ran (ie, 8-man story mode, 8-man hardmode, etc). You can email me the original combat log text file or a link to the uploaded log on the site, either works.

  • Scum and Villiany - All modes and bosses
  • Terror From Beyond NM
  • Athiss HM - Bonus Boss only
  • Hammer Station HM - Bonus Boss only

It's okay if your combat log includes stuff besides what is requested.

P.S. The desktop application is still coming along, but I do not have any further information to present about it at this time.  When I get the group parser functional, I will post a new blog update.  Thanks!
