Mini-Tutorial for DCDump
The parser is available at This link
1) Click settings
2) Configure the path to Anarchy Online
If Anarchy online is currently running, it can be automatically detected.
Continue to step #2
At this point minimize and the parser and login to Anarchy online.
The character should now be detected, if it has not yet been, zone a couple of times.
Continue to step #3
Open up the parsers character managment screen by clicking "Manage"
This will bring up the manage window, where you can enable/disable characters.
Continue to step #4
As you can see, in this case I logged in on "Officeleet"
And its been properly detected by the parser.
I now wish to enable damage parsing on Officeleet.
I simply select the character, hit "Enable" and close the manage window.
Continue to step #5
As you can see, the character now appears in the parser.
However, In order for the enable to activate, Anarchy Online must be restarted.
Once anarchy online has been restarted/relogged, it will start logging damage data.
Select the character (or hit Latest), and click Parse Now
Continue to step #6
The parser is now parsing the last logged fight.
After a few seconds it should finish and switch to the "History" tab where you can see previous parses.
Continue to step #7
The parse is now available via the /DC command ingame.
The 'copy to ao' button is only for reviewing old logs ingame.
Continue to step #8 [ingame]
Accessed via /dc ingame.
Frequently asked questions
My toons are not being detected, whats wrong?
Make sure you wait at least 10 seconds when logging in, and zone twice.
-- If this fails, ask for help on the forum.
Does the parser work while dual logged?
Yes, have fun dual logging.
Do i need "Copy to AO"?
This button is only for copying in old parses from the history.
Not required for new parses.
Does it matter where i store the parser?
No, store it anywhere you'd like
What is "old log"?
Mainly used for parsing fights that has already ended, like a beast raid that just ended.
Has slightly different parameters than the standard "Live updates" which updates every 15 sec.
Does the parser handle pets?
* It will handle your own pets regardless of names.
* It will handle other pets if: renamed to their own name, or retains original pet name
* It will only handle one of each pet-profession (in addition to yourself)
Does the parser handle charms?
Yes, The parser will handle charms, but a certain margin-of-error is to be expected.
If the charms are tanking, the stats will be unreliable.
I've had a fight, but parser says no log detected (??)
First off: Make sure you have the "dcDump" window ingame. (Picture)
This can be checked by pressing CTRL+7
If the window does not exist, repeat this tutorial
I've had a fight, but parser says no fight detected, pacifist?
In order for the parser to "detect" a fight, you need to fulfill one of these criterias:
1) At least 10,000 damage and 5 hits
2) At least 2,000 damage and 25 hits
3) Running a live parse (version 1.0.36 and up)
This is done to prevent "trash data" from being recorded as a fight.
Example: Running past a dyna being killed, should not overwrite your older pande raid.
How do i start a new parse?
Starting a "live parse" will include the last fight you had (unless there has been a 10 minute break)
If a realtime parse with no history is desired, consider making a feature request.
