Just incase anyone is wondering what EQDKP is:

What is EQdkp?
EQdkp is an Open Source DKP system created out of necessity. Many EverQuest guilds wanted to use the point system but didn't have the means or time or will to create their own program for managing it. The main focus of EQdkp is to make loot distribution decisions as easy as possible for guild leaders while still allowing the system to be easy to maintain.
EQdkp was originally created with the notion that one closed-source installation of it would support many guilds' point systems. It was later released as an Open Source project so that it would be much more customizable by each guild.



What is DKP?
DKP, short for Dragon Kill Points, is a concept originally created by Thott of Afterlife (http://www.afterlifeguild.org/). These points are awarded to each guild member as they attend a guild raid. The current DKP of each member reflects his or her priority for loot. When a member "wins" an item, they lose a DKP amount that reflects the value of that item.
DKP allows for an unbiased comparison between guild members when decisions about loot are to be made based on attendance and recent items that have been awarded.



Does EQdkp only work with EverQuest?
No. It has game support for EverQuest, EverQuest 2, World of Warcraft, Vanguard, and Dark Age of Camelot. Its game support is also modular, so new games can be added quickly and easily.

Great passing of knowledge!

I'd done the same for my EQDKP installations and created vBa modules for them, it's definitely nice to see things like this passed along to the community so the gaming mod base grows.

(Wish I'd thought to pass it along myself! ^.~)

Kudos!

thanks for the idea and template :)

with this you can create your own custom mmo related addons.. like Raid Overview / DKP-Info / etc.

if you're not a coder, just edit the sql querys to match your raidplaner and get all new raids on your forum frontpage.

i use this along with phpraider.com:

$query = 'SELECT raid_id, description, location, start_time FROM raid_raids ORDER BY raid_id ASC LIMIT 0,3';

To have the 3 next Raids on the FORUMHOME-Page.

v1.2.0 out now.

VERY HAPPY with how this turned out. Finally got this hack coverted to a product.

They say you are supposed to loathe your own work. Guess that statement is not true here.

Enjoy the new update guys.
