Event details

NOTE

GEM sync with ingame calendar is currently disabled due to many changes made by blizzard with WoW 4.0+

-

Starting with version 3.60, we added a new feature that allows GEM to synchronize events with blizzard in-game calendar.

All you have to do is check the option "bliz_cal" in the channel configuration window in GEM-UI, and every time you create an event, it will automatically be created in the game calendar and will be synchronized automatically.

Players will then have the possibility to subscribe/unsubscribe either in GEM or in blizzard calendar (and from wow-armory). Of course, blizzard calendar has less options than GEM, so you won't be able to enter a subscribe comment or a role.

Note: This option is currently supported ONLY for the guild channel.

Description

Overview

This AddOn allows you to create/schedule/manage future raid instance directly in-game. Players can register (join) and reserve a room for your instance, or cancel subscription. You can setup a maximum players for your event, as well as the min/max per class or role.

When a player wants to join and there is no room left for his class, he is put in a ''substitute'' queue, waiting for someone to cancel his subscription. The leader of an event does not have to be logged in for a player to subscribe.

This addon has been designed to help guilds to schedule events, and its member to say ''*I'll be there*'', and count the number of players that are ok for an instance. It does work for multiple guilds (kind of Alliance of guilds), if you want, or even with your friend list.

All dates are stored in universal time, and displayed in local time, so if someone creates an event in a different timezone than yours, you will see the correct time on your side.

The GEM team is proud to announce you the release of GEM WebSync, a tool that allows you to synchronize your Event sheduling with your webserver. Get GEM PHP and GEM WS AddOn here on curse. GEM PHP is the web part to install on your webserver, and GEM WS AddOn the ingame plugin for GEM3.

    Causes an error to spam for V2 users if you use this version.  The following text is what happens:

    (GEM3^1^N3.007^N3^SGblEvtId1^N1215166904^T^N1^SAsgaroth^N2^SCaffeinated^N3^SShattrath~`City^N4^N70^N5^SDRUID^N6^N4^N7^N0^N8^SLight~`Roast^N9^N6^N10^S3.09-beta2^N11^S^N12^b^N13^B^N14^T^t^t^).  Is there a way to have it communicate with V2 for now or would it be too much coding involved?
