- I can’t create a character. How do I play the game ? (please, don’t laught, this is the most common question I get !)
World of Warcraft Armory is not a game. It’s a tool for World of Warcraft players (on Pc or Mac) which allows them to diplay the characters and their characteristics and gears. If you don’t play World of Warcraft, this software is useless for you.
- I can’t see the widget. How do I display it ?
The same way you do it for any widget in Android : First, make sure you have enough space for a new widget (it takes a 3×1 box). Then long press on any empy space on your homescreen (A long press will last a couple of seconds). Then choose the “Widget” option (or “Android Widget” on some HTC models). Finally, select “Droid Armory” and follow the instructions.
If you cannot see “Droid Armory” in the widget list, then it’s probably because you stored the app on the SD Card (which is incompatible with Widgets). Switch back your app on the internal memory, then reboot your phone.
- My character level/gear does not update.
Your toon has to be updated on the Armory to see your current gear. To update Armory, log in World of Warcraft with your toon and LOG OUT. Exiting will not update it.
- The hairs of my toon show through my helmet / are not correct / wrong color / my tabard does not show correctly…
There are many known limitations in the 3D toon display. The hairs and face are not dependant on the toon (ie are the same for everybody), the guild tabard is not loaded and the hairs are shown even through the helmet. I hope to be able to fix it, but it is a huge work, and I have to reserve much time for it. And time is a critical resource for me…
Update : These issues should have been fixed most of the time. However, there are still some case where hairs are missing (leaving a big hole in the head, which proves that your toons are brainless and that YOU are their brain . There are even some very rare cases where some female toons have a beard. Funny but annoying. I’m still working on this…
- The 3D model does not work on my … (insert your phone’s model here)
3D model is known to be not working on some models (Samsung Spica and Samsung Moment), and sometimes even crashes the phone. Unfortunately, as I don’t own such models, I cannot perform tests to know what’s going on. I suspect some tidious incompatibilities with OpenGL, but at the time, don’t see how to guess what’s going on…
- When I look for my character, it keeps saying “no character found”
Your character must be at least level 10 to have their character sheet appear.
Make sure you have selected the right region. European characters only show if you select region Europ in the search page.
A character must be recently active to have its profile appear on the Armory.
If you’re sure your character must be shown, check the official site www.wowarmory.com and look for it. If you can find it, and you still cannot load it into Wow Droid Armory, then send me an email.
- The gear score of my toon is not correct.
Many players use a gear score addon. However, its formula is not known. So Wow Droid Armory is reading a gear score from http://www.wow-heroes.com/ which is a great site, but uses a different formula. If any of you can send me the GS addon formula (or a way to capture it from the web), then I’d be glad to include it in my app…
- Why does the application need access to my phone calls ?
First of all, it has no access to phone calls ! People, learn how to read ! The application has access to “phone state” (among other more common permissions). It’s very useful for me to get some debugging information from people sending me bug report. Without that, I’d be incapable of retrieving the necessary informations to diagnose the user’s issues. I can promise you it’s totally harmless (why would I want to know anything about you anyway. I’m just a normal person), but anyway if you’re paranoid, I won’t mind if you uninstall my work… You’re free…
- Auction house link returns pname:com.blizzard.wow search problem, or does not work
It means you cannot download Blizzard’s Auction House application on
your phone and I don’t know why.
The “Auction House” button only get you to the market if this app is not installed, and launches it if it is. There’s nothing more I can do for that. Ask Blizzard why you cannot get their application on your phone model or from your country.
