Lucy/EQ Item Collector in 2020?Follow

Hi all,

I am new to Allakhazam and want to help contribute to the item database. I'm familiar with Warcraft and the program used to passively collect data, it appears that Lucy/EQ Item Collector is the equivalent here --is that correct? If so, it appears to be a somewhat dated package including WinPcap which does not function on Windows 10, has known security vulnerabilities, and is end-of-life. The Wiki addresses some of that, a nice quality of life would be including Npcap in the exe like WinPcap is.

I've installed the replacement program, Npcap and see the NICs in the EQ Item Collector. I am transmitting data, seeing sessions open/close on zoning, etc. but get nothing appearing for 'items seen' despite looking, looking at multiple vendors, etc. Is this typical if its not new items? I also am not seeing any character appear in the profile section --is this function broken?

I appreciate any insight that can be provided!

The item collector hasn't been patched yet for the last game update. Every time eqgame.exe is patched, the item collector has to be patched. At some point we'll replace the included winpcap with the updated npcap instead. I'm sure the item collector developer is working on the last update. I'll let everyone know when he has it patched.

It appears as though Lucy has been updated, as evidenced by SwiftyMUSE's new entries at https://lucy.allakhazam.com/itemdbstats.html

However, I upgraded to Windows 10 on the home system and Lucy is coming up blank. Is Lucy actually functional right now or were SwiftyMUSE's entries a momentary blip?

I knew to install NPCAP and uninstall the old WINPCAP and I'm running over Ethernet, not Wi-Fi, so theoretically I should be good to go, but still, no items are being seen.

Is it working for anyone else currently?

SwiftyMUSE was testing it out, we haven't released it to the public yet. I'll post when we release it.

The item collector is now patched for the October 2020 game update. Rerun the item collector to download the patch.
