Unread post by Santeri » 2019-4-30 16:55

I made a new free web app for checking who is online at the moment playing World of Tanks for finding platoon mates.

Let me know how if you like and report me all the bugs so I can get them fixed.

We have released a new test version that is fixing the following known bugs:
  • Only the first 100 ungrouped contacts are listed due to the API limitations
  • Showing only ungrouped contacts and disregarding all grouped contacts
  • Up to 50% of all contacts are missing from the contact list
The new version has ascending and descending sorting of contacts by last seen, latest battle win-rate and it works as a standalone mobile app.

App update 2021-4-26 of WoT Alert - Who is online playing World of Tanks?

Unread post by Santeri » 2021-4-16 14:21

I have updated WoT Alert.
  • "Error 504: SOURCE_NOT_AVAILABLE". This error happens due to timeouts on Wargaming servers. Earlier it was handled by resetting the connection and clearing all browser data. Now the error is reported in console log (in debug mode), ignored and retried after the next refresh interval.
  • Resized graphics to 380px width. The app will fit now better to smart phone with small screens.
  • Changed in the interface the following terms
    • Last -> Seen (the last time when user has interacted with wargaming servers or website)
    • Latest -> Battle (the last time when user had a battle in the game)
For more information and to use this free app, visit WoT Alert - Who is online playing World of Tanks.

App update: 2021-6-9

Unread post by Santeri » 2021-6-9 13:50

Image Changelog 2021-6-9
  • Wargaming access tokens expire every 2 weeks. Added automatic access token renewal before it expires.
  • Added ignore option to all error messages. Sometimes WG servers are throwing random and temporary access errors. Earlier the connection was reset and statistics deleted. Now you can ignore the error and let the app retry connecting in the next refresh cycle.
  • Fixed minor bugs including the one that limited the initial showing of contacts to 4-5 before the first refresh if the connection was resumed or page refreshed/reloaded.
  • Resized graphics further to fit 340px wide smart phone screens. Now it should work in all smart phones out-of-the-box without zooming or scaling.
If you are having troubles installing the update, clear your browser cache (reload page ctrl-shift-R and if that does not help, search for browser specific instructions). On android mobile phone with chrome, you can view the app on desktop mode to force the update and then return back to the mobile. Let me know if you encounter problems and I'll do my best to help you.

Enjoy,

Santeri

App update: 2021-6-24 - WoT Alert - Who is online playing Wolrd of Tanks

Unread post by Santeri » 2021-6-24 04:39

Changelog 2021-6-24
  • Changed automatic access token renewal to happen daily instead of every 12 days. Because the update was left so late and checked only once a day, renewal often failed before the access token expired after 14 days,
  • With smartphone the info dialog (old welcome dialog, opened pressing the i-icon on the bottom left corner) was often empty and did not update properly.
Thank you for reporting me bugs!
