About Parse



  • This is among one of the most used parsers for Final Fantasy XIV and was for quite some time the only one actively being developed.

    It provides real-time data, is open source and presented in a way that is usable and friendly. It's been used since Beta of 1.0 and is always evolving.

    Status: Open-Source

    You can view, compile or download the source from here: GitHub

    To have discussions about this plugin please submit or reply to topics here.



  • Requirements:

    • FFXIV-APP
    • NET 4.5
    • The "Battle" tab in-game or at least one tab by itself must have every chat line turned on for battle.
    • For proper parsing of yourself you must at least set your first/last name of character. Server is used to pull in your lodestone avatar pictures.


  • Usage & Features:

    • Coming soon!


  • Screen Shots:

    Please check the posts below for more info.



  • Home -> Basic View:

    When using default settings this is the basic view shown to all users. The score card for the party has some basic breakdowns.

    Whenever you see the term "Combined" or "Comb." what that means is it includes XOverTime spells like healing/damage/etc.

    These are all tracked independently of each other as you will see in further screenshots.

    Each player has his or her own score card as well. While not shown in this screen shot when playing while the game is running a job icon will be displayed next to the persons picture.

    The title bar of each card displays the total overall DPS along with how active the person was during the fight.

    Below that you will have identifiers [YOU] for you, [P] for party member, [A] or alliance and [O] for other. This is also dependant on whether you are parsing the alliance/others.

    Please keep in mind parsing others is resource intensive but can be done. It will include anyone around you and just to the edge of your visible range.

    At the bottom there is an options to load an existing file and currently has limitations that anything status based will not be re-parsed. This functionality will be readjusted to use a exported parse from the program.

    You can also choose the advanced view or reset the currently parse manually to start fresh.

    If enabled when reseting the parser it will store a copy of that in memory until you shut it down. This allows you to go back and have a look after the fact.

  • Home -> Advanced View:

    If enabled now have an advanced view.

    View source is current and past parses (if enabled for history storing).

    View type can be either:

    • Score Cards (as shown)
    • Party
    • Party (ALL)
    • Monster
    • Monster (ALL)

    What do these mean?

    • Score Cards
      • A continuation of the basic view with no other changes.
    • Party
      • Overall totals for all players and pets but broken down into subcategories, by action and target.
    • Party (ALL)
      • Overall totals for all players and pets.
    • Monster
      • Overall totals for all monsters but broken down into subcategories, by action and target.
    • Monster (ALL)
      • Overall totals for all monsters.

    You will see an example of the break downs (for players) in the following screen shots. There are a few symbols that you will see as part of the action name when viewing. These are there as "keys" so they are tracked properly.

    Example:

    • [•] is XOverTime (healing, damage, etc)
    • [∞] is over healing.
    • [•][∞] XOverTime that also over healed.
    • [☯] mitigation spells like stoneskin.
    • [+] this is an extra or unknown attack which typically comes from Sword Oath (PLD).

    The upcoming break down of functionality will be the same for monsters as well.

    First and foremost because of the way databinding works in the application if you click on someone in the list before they actually have data for something (like a certain action, healing data, etc) to ensure you have the latest data select the player and press refresh. This button is not needed however after they have 1 update to that action because it will bind correctly going forward.

    When you select a player it will populate the tabs of data on the right hand side.

  • Home -> Damage (Actions):

    This tab is broken down into the following sections:

    • Totals Normal
      • This is a list of actions by the selected player that have been done but do not include damage over time.
    • Totals Over Time
      • All damage done that is DoT based.

    By default in ALL tabs each column is displayed with nothing turned off. You can however through settings or by right clicking anywhere in the list view turn off a column.

    Please be advised turning off a column in one tab turns it off in another. If it wasn't done this way currently it would bloat the settings page to nearly 2000 items that can be checked.

    I'm open to pull requests to facilitate this better though :)

  • Settings -> Main Settings:

    The parser has some included widgets.

    • DPS, damage per second.
    • DTPS, damage taken per second.
    • HPS, healing per second.

    It also can adjust the widget opacity, disable titles on the widgets and enable click-though so it doesn't cause a loss of focus on the game.

    You can use reset settings to bring back the widget to your main screen (in the case a second screen was disconnected) or open it again if you accidentally or purposefully closed it.

  • Settings -> Parseable:

    The settings on this tab allow you to turn on parsing of you, your party, the alliance or everyone around you. Please be sure to have a chat tab in the game that has all corresponding events turned on as well.

  • Settings -> Column Display Settings:

    This page... :cry:

    This tab is another way to turn off the columns in the tabs and really I should just delete it but you will find a couple hundred check boxes in here.

    They are broke down into category however.

    Every "Card" in basic and advanced has line item on it along with a number. Every stat you see is also available to be displayed on the cards.
