Other mumble link reader[edit]

Window appearance

Since I was given a copy of it by Andromeda on the API gitter I thought I'd share it, as its a working alternative to gw2navi/timer:

  • Link to the useful bit: LINK 1 - download the folder.
  • After you've opened GW2, Run the "GW2 Mumble Link Reader.exe" file. It will load some data from the official gw2 maps API first (this takes a few seconds), then if you're logged in on a character, it'll display their name and position.
  • The continent position coordinates we're interested in are the X and Y coordinates, which are located where I've sketched on the red boxes. The Z axis isn't used by our maps project, but it's located between the X+Y boxes.

I had a play with the source files today and whittled it down to the bare basics of what we need. LINK 2 new link - grab both files and keep them in the same folder as each other. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:23, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
Note to self, vertical position is converted to inches. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:36, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for this. I was adding the coordinates for most of the Jahai Bluff PoIs yesterday and using GW2Navi was kind of annoying/just to much interface. Almost ended up writing my own small program for grabbing the coordinates, thanks to you I don't have to. Are you willing/able to make the source code available for me to learn/see how you grabbed the coords with the MumbleLink API? --Almdudler (talk) 18:56, 30 September 2018‎ (UTC)
I'm so sorry i missed your comment entirely - I can't remember which of the two things in my visual studio folder was the final revision it's the one named "GW2W coord pair" - the other folder is the original i forked it from, here's a link though: -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 00:55, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, and don't worry, I forgot that I even asked^^ Almdudler (talk) 01:00, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
