HOW-TO: Raidloot Inventory Profile
« on: September 15, 2016, 02:39:37 AM »
Why Raidloot Profiles?
  • There's absolutely nothing wrong with Magelo, but they made a few changes to the subscription system several years back and I still don't think very many people are aware of how things work. As I'm sure most people know, if you are a paid subscriber and have a Premium Magelo Membership, then you're perfectly set and good to go.

    However ...


    If you are NOT a paid subscriber and instead opt to try the free premium trial service, things get a little tricky. You can still use the Sync Tool to automatically update your gear, augments, and AAs, but this free trial profile will only be viewable to YOU when you are logged into the Magelo account. Everyone else that is not logged in with your account will be told the profile is set to private and cannot be viewed. The profile will stay like this for the full 10 days that your account is under the free premium trial. After that trial has ended, the profile will become viewable by everyone once again, but you will no longer be able to update the profile with the Sync Tool and will be required to make updates manually by hand.

    To combat all of the potential confusion, we like to promote Raidloot.com Inventory Profiles. They're completely free, entirely automated, and in our opinion, much more user-friendly than Magelo, too! If your Magelo profile is not displaying for us or you can't get one created, we will ask you to create a Raidloot profile instead. The following steps will help you.
STEP #1: Create a Username
  • Click here to be brought to Raidloot's registration page. It will ask you to pick a username and password of your choosing, and it will also provide you the option of including an e-mail address if you ever forget your password. Once you've filled in the information, click on the button that reads "Register."
STEP #2: Create Your Character's Inventory File
  • In EverQuest, type the command /output inventory. You should see a confirmation message that says "/outputfile complete" if you did everything correctly. This will create a text file in your EverQuest directory that will be named Character-Inventory.txt. If I were to do this on my Beastlord, Zlauk, for example, then my file would be named Zlauk-Inventory.txt (the ".txt" part may or may not display based on your computer's file extension settings).
STEP #3: Upload Your Inventory to Raidloot
  • Login with the username and password you created, and click on the "Profiles" link on the left. Somewhere near the bottom on the left side, you're going to click on a link called "Upload a Profile."
  • You're going to want to click on "Browse" and then navigate to your character's EverQuest directory in order to find the inventory text file you created up in step two. If you're not sure how to do that, this short, three-minute video will walk you through the process. Once the file is uploaded, you'll click on the "Upload" button.
  • You'll be brought to a new page where you can fill in some additional details about your character. Please make sure your name, class, and AA count (the assigned AA count) are entered correctly. You can leave everything else to the default settings. Once you have all of this information squared away, click on "Save" down at the bottom.
STEP #4: Linking to the Profile
  • When you click on "Save" from step three, you'll be brought to the inventory page for your character. Simply copy the web address that appears in your internet browser (it'll look something like http://www.raidloot.com/Profile.aspx?id=####). You can paste that address right into your application, and the members and leadership of Valhallah will be able to view your character's inventory at the click of a button!
If there are any problems with the process, please contact Zlauk or Warpeace for additional help.
