Fishing Buddy -- Merge Data

This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

If you wish to take this project over, please report it and state your intentions.

This plugin for Fishing Buddy allows you to maintain a single fishing database across multiple machines. It can also be used to share databases with other players.

Here's how to copy your database changes between machines:

1. Log out of WoW
2. Squirrel away the 'target' copy of FB_MergeDatabase.lua
3. Copy FB_MergeDatabase.lua to the 'target' machine
4. Put the 'source' FB_MergeDatabase.lua in the 'target' SavedVariables folder
5. Log into WoW

All of the 'source' fish are now merged with the 'target' database. Do the reverse with the 'target' FB_MergeDatabase and both machines are now 'in sync.'

Here's how to merge two FishingBuddy.lua files (e.g. import someone else's database):

1. Log into Wow, run '/fb merge force'
2. Copy the other FishingBuddy.lua file into SavedVariables (overwrites the original -- back it up first)
3. Log into Wow

You should get a not-very-useful-yet message in the Chat window that your fish have been merged.

Going between machines, the FB_MergeDatabase.lua file from the 'other' machine(s) goes into SavedVariables and then you log into WoW and the fish will be merged -- the FB_MergeDatabase structures are emptied out, ready to start capturing new fishing.
