    TradeSkillMaster Application Closed Beta

    We have been working very hard over the past few months on a major upgrade for the TradeSkillMaster Application, and we're finally ready to invite more people to try it out. So, we're planning on starting a closed beta phase for the new application within a matter of days (pending catastrophic issues). What's new? As you may know, the TSM app has recently had issues getting data from Blizzard. This new application fixes that and provides exciting new data to TSM_AuctionDB.



    New Global Prices for AuctionDB



    In addition to updating AuctionDB's market value and min buyout prices for the realms you have selected, the application will update AuctionDB with a handful of new global market prices. These are based on horde and alliance across US and EU combined.



    New "Global Sale Price"



    This tells you exactly what people are paying for a given item. The way we are determining this is unique to TSM, and extremely accurate compared to TUJ and similar websites. More details about this will come in the near future (once we're convinced it'll work at scale), but suffice it to say: we don't make this claim lightly.




    How to sign up?
    There is currently one limitation of the beta version of this new application:
    • Does not yet do any deal notifications.

    We hope to fix these limitations ASAP, but if they don't bother you, and you'd like to sign up for the beta, you can do so by signing into your account at http://www.tradeskillmaster.com, clicking on the "My Account" link in the top-right, going to the "TSM Apps Auth" page, and clicking on the link there.


    Future Plans
    There are many other things which are still in the works, and there's still lots to do to ensure the stability of the new features we've already implemented. The new application obviously can't get all of this data directly from Blizzard, so the app now goes data through a new TSM server we have setup to process the data from Blizzard and provide it to our users. This new server is expensive (10x our previous server costs), so if you enjoy TSM, and want to help ensure our continued progress on new features such as this, please consider supporting us financially.


    Feedback / Comments / Lack of NDA
    Please use this thread for any feedback, comments, or questions regarding this new version of the TSM Application. There is no NDA here. You're free to share any information / screenshots / etc you want if you're invited to the beta.



    UPDATE 6/1: Everybody will need to sign up for the beta again before their app will work. Details: http://stormspire.net/official-trade...ce-issues.html
    UPDATE 3/23: We now have a mac version of the application ready to be tested!

    The first batch of invites just went out! If you have been invited, you will have received an email (from sapu@tradeskillmaster.com) with further details.

    If you are in the beta, please provide your feedback in this thread. This first batch was relatively small, and as soon as we hear some initial feedback from this first batch, we'll send out another round of invites.

    Thanks!

    Am loving the improvements, many many quality of life improvements, and I've only just scratched the surface.
    One thing I have found though, everytime I hit craft next via TSM the screen blacks for a fraction of a second. No errors have popped up for it though

    What does this have to do with the beta application? If you're having a general TSM issue, you should review the "READ FIRST" sticky and post a new thread.

    Because you asked for feedback etc to be in this thread, and it's something that has only started since I installed and started running the beta application. No matter, I will start a thread if you wish.

    I don't see how the TSM Application could cause your monitor to go black when you craft something in WoW....you should make a new thread and describe in detail what you're seeing.

    Aye have done. The only thing I could think of, which I've stated in the thread is that it only happens when crafting items I don't have in my bags already. It's like pulling up a value of the item is causing it to flicker. Only thing I can think of. I have since then cleared my saved variables so it may just be me being lazy in the first place...

    Urgh I'm an idiot. clearing my saved Variables has fixed it... My apologies for my stupidity, I'll go back in my box now

    The application itself seems to be working, the only thing that slightly threw me off is I couldn't see a way to tell how fresh the data was since the App doesn't seem to show this anymore, but it appears that is shown on the tooltip in game.

    One question though, in the write up in the OP it mentions a global sale value, I don't see this on the tooltip in game. Is that not in yet or should I be digging further to find out why its not showing?

    Edit: Nevermind the last bit, I relaunched WoW and there it is. False alarm!
