This post provides instructions on how to get your Speed Run DSA report. This offer is limited to only the participants in Speed Run V.
to send in your data?
Data submissions are now being accepted to generate your reports for the speed run. It will be up to you to decide when you want to send in your file. Generally speaking, the higher your "Scan Score" is on your Pipeline tooltip, the better your data quality will be, so there is an advantage to waiting if you haven't been able to reliably complete scans, and you think that will improve in the short term. That being said, if you are stuck looking for opportunities, getting a report sooner rather than later will probably help more. Scan scores of 5000 or more generally start to show good data, and 8000-10000 or more tend to be quite solid.
Processing and turn-around time is likely to be faster over the next 48 hours or so (Feb 25 and 26), versus later, when processing will be on a time-available basis. Files will be processed and mailed back in a first-come-first-served fashion, with one major exception: If you don't follow the instructions below, your report will likely be delayed
. There are quite a few files that I'll need to crunch through, and it's not fair to the other participants to make them wait while I work around problems with a submission. So it's in your best interests to read the following parts carefully!
to send in your data?
There is a file that you will need to find on your computer, ZIP UP THAT FILE
, and email to DSAnalysis@gmail.com
Included in that email will need to be the following items:
a. As a Subject for the email: Speed Run DSA
b. Your forum name, which should match your Speed Run thread name
c. The exact name of the server
that you are doing the speed run on <--- This is critical!
d. The attached zip file of your Purchogram database (instructions for finding it below)
e. If you want the results sent to an email address other than the one from which you sent the request, the email address to send to.
The email address that will receive your report this should be able to receive attachments of at least 5MB in size. If your current one can't, consider getting a Gmail account.
is the file that I need to zip up and attach?
You are looking for a file called Auc-Stat-Purchogram.lua
This is stored in the SavedVariables folder for your account from which you are doing your AH scanning for the speed run. To get to your SavedVariables folder, start at your WoW installation directory, and navigate down through the following folders/subdirectories:
WTF \ Account \ (accountname) \ SavedVariables
Inside of that folder, you should find the Auc-Stat-Purchogram.lua file. (accountname) will be a string that is unique to each WoW account that you use. Make sure that you are grabbing the file from the correct account's SavedVariables file, or your results will definitely not be what you expect! The easiest way to ensure that this is the case, is to log on, perform an AH scan for your speed run server, and then log off of that character. Then verify that the date/time stamp on the file has just now been refreshed.
Since the data file is written at logoff time, be sure that you are logged out of your WoW characters prior to trying to Zip up this file, to ensure that you have the most up-to-date data in the file.
