Title: Lost items at bag swap
Post by: cubenicke on November 19, 2018, 08:51:04 pm
(A) Headline

Lost items after a bag swap with addon.

(B) Defect Type

Bag swap

(C) Priority

Low for server
Critical for players loosing items.

(D) Environment

Was farming in EPL and 2 x 16 slot bags dropped. Rode back to light's hope and at mailbox....

(E) Steps

* Used the swapper addon to swap Bag #3 (14 slot bag) to a 16 slot (Dragged/dropped 16 slot on top of bag slot #3)
* When that swap is done, swap Bag #2 (14 slot bag) with another 16 slot bag. (Dragged/dropped on top of #2)
* In my scenario after the swaps the 2nd 14slot bag couldn't be found in my bags.
* Relogged
* Then the 14 slot bag is back in pos #2 and the 2nd 16 slot bag has vanished in thin air
* 2 items from the 16slot bag was sent in blizz mails to me ( total around 10 ish missed items, which hasn't been found since)

Is this behaviours caused by the server or by the addon?

Must be the server. Since the addon can't generate mails from blizz sender! and it should
be possible to reproduce the bug without the addon. But ofc it will be easier to reproduce it with the addon.

And really big issue, if server looses items for players. But should be easy to find, it if the addon stresses the server.

The manual way to swap bags on VG requires the bag to be replaced to be empty. Only then can it be swapped. It sounds like the addon tries to do something that is not supported by the server when swapping full bags around. Personally I've never had any issues with the manual (albeit tedious) way.

The addon doesn't move full bags. The addon logic is to try swap if the bag is full then it empties the bag automatically and then replaces the bag when it is Empty. The whole issue is probably that you are not quick enough poodle :D

Sounds very much like when i was told you could get a 2nd Supply bag, and i did so after putting the first one in bank :-P

Next time i logged, i lost some mixed D1/Feral gear (obsv 2nd 18slot supply bag gone aswell), and system also only send 2 lost items via mail.

Anyone brave enough to record such behaviour on video? :p

ATM it's the addon's fault to me.

This happened around server reset, so that can be an issue too, also the report is about the addon we can't help you if the addon does that.

Sure could, but i cant be bothered to make more badges and cleaning bagspaces for redoing this.

i consider what i did, my own stupidity and hences its on me for loosing those items :P

I wanted to try 2 unique bags, cos i was told u could do that np. Obsv u cant cos server will detect this (around restart/resets maybe ? ) and fix it.

Personaly i dont think swapping addons are a problem, i tried some out, never had an erorr like OP here, using outfitter atm np.

Now it's happened to me on another character, Server time 21:24 not close to reset time this time either....

swapped bags and this time i gained 6 items. it duplicated 6 items from the bagged.  At horde bank in ogrimmar.

To reproduce
1. 6slot bag was full swapped it with a 12 herb bag in inv.
2. banked items in the 6 slot bag
3. swapped a 14 slot bag with the empty 6 slot..
4. The 6 slot was vanished
5. Then when i relogged the 14 was not equipped  and 6 slot bags was in bank and full with orig items and had the same items in inv.
6 and the 12 herb bag was full in inv



Fun bug this :D

It's the same thing I tell customers at work that use Internet Explorer. Stop using it! Just disable that addon. i'm pretty sure it's no big deal to do it manually, it's not like you have to swap bags 20 times a day. VG doesn't fix bugs let alone addons.
