Hey

could you explain a bit what happens when I click "update prices" - selecting Jita today on "max buy/min sell" - I got a (for me, anyway) significant deviation once I had the prices reset, did it several times to check and it was maybe 5% out on a half bil order for goods, which doesn't sound a lot but worked out like 20 mil so just wondering if there is anything I can do to improve the accuracy, is it relying on user uploads to somewhere ? - I dont mind since I can just factor a 5% deviation anyway - but in previous weeks the prices have been very accurate when I go to market

Thanks, awesome tool ShockedBig smile

Jas.

I think it uses eve-central data dumps or something similiar. From what I understand, that is about the only way to get market info, there is no "up-to-date" out of game market that tracks the market that closely, it will always be somewhat out of date. (If there is a tool to get up-to-date ingame market data, someone please share the secret with us.)

If the pricing is that particularly important you can choose to "Enter Prices" and manually input any price for items you'd like.

Keep in mind, Jita Mineral prices have been going nuts with speculation the last few days/week changing very quickly.

Yeah I use eve central. Eve marketeer seems to be a good product if you want to double check but I haven't noticed a huge difference. Plus, I really don't want to re-write that part of the program. My suggestion to you though is to use the unified uploaded from eve marketeer. That utility is really great. It updates eve central, eve market prices, and eve marketeer at the same time. Runs in the background and requires very little setup. This will really help in having up to date prices.

In case this hasn't been said already in 11 pages of posts, it would be great to be able to manually set the SVR that is use for the "ignore low svr" button.

Cheers and thanks for the great app.

Got an error message when trying to access the price for high sec Ice. it is as follows...

An Unhandled Exception has occured and EVE Isk per Hour will now close.
Please copy the data below for sending to developer.

Source: EVE Isk per Hour
Message: Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow.

Also, please fill out the following information as appropriate:

Operating System:
Screen or Tab where Error Occurred:
Steps to reproduce the Error:

Basically all I did was select ice and hit calculate, which then crashed the program.

If you need any other info let me know. Pretty amazing program overall. It doesn't appear to have a refining calculator though. Obviously the ISK per hour under the mining tab ould change quite a bit if it factored in the fact that the ore would get refined once brought back to the station, or am I missing something?

Thanks for the error report. I'll get that fixed soon. I'll also get a few other bug fixes in this week I hope. RL issues taking up some time (read: inlaws are in town).

Yeah, figured this out. It's because you probably have a ship selected other than one that can fit ice lasers. Select a ship (or change skills to give you a ship to select) and then a mining laser to use to calculate. I'll get this fixed so it's more automatic and doesn't leave it empty to cause this error.

I cannot fly a Hulk. But on the mining tab, I want to calculate isk per hour with a Hulk for mining things. Even when I override my skills to be all-level-5 (via the checkbox, which seems to uncheck itself next time I go back to character skills menu) I cannot select Hulk as a mining ship option. I set mining / astrogeo as L5 on mining tab already.

How do I select Hulk?

Yeah, it's acting screwy. I need to fix it. Try changing the exhumer level and make sure all necessary skills are there. You might just need to change the combo values to get it to show.

Hey zifran, really nice program you made :)

I have a problem though... as I cannot install it. It keeps saying that the Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. Tried to repair it / restart it (the service) and nothing changed.... Is there something wrong with the executable (as I can install any other programs on my pc atm with no problems) or is it something else ?

Not sure if it's my program. Found this knowledge base article though. Let me know if this helps.

If you do not update all prereqs the program is defaulting back to the API skills. (Tried setting invention skills that my alt has that my main doesn't and it reverted back on me).

Zifrian -

My copy of IPH has stopped calculating SVR. If it's broken just for me, is there anything I can do to fix it without nuking my preferences?

Also, feature request -- don't show the build cost from Components, etc for T1 items that don't have components.

On the SVR, yeah I'm getting this too. I'll check on EVE Marketeer and see what's up.

On your request, you mean on the blueprint tab?

The SVR data isn't being updated because the EVE Marketeer site is down. Hopefully it'll be back up soon.

I'm making some changes now so that you won't lose data the next time this happens. I'll just keep whatever you have saved for the average time period (i.e. if you have 30 days, then the data will stay in there for 30 days then go to 0 then).

Hope to get the fix up today but it's not going to help if you already have it set to zero. I'll keep checking on the EVE Marketeer though.
