Codes

Codes are like products in a web shop (eg. Fortitude - Archon Plate - Ethereal - Bugged - 30% All Res, 1.5 HP/Lvl, 3552 Defense). They allow you to categorize your items and search for them easily. A Code consists of an ID (0 to 999,999), a description, a type (eg. Archon Plate) and a match/pickit (eg. Quality = Runeword & Name = Fortitude & Eth & Ebugged & AllResistances = 30 & LifePerLevel = 1.5 & Defense = 3552).

How to Write a Match/Pickit

Special

There are 4 types of special codes. These allow you to create packs containing other codes! They can be multiple levels deep as well (A contains 1 B and 2 C's, and C contains 3 D's and 1 E). Special codes have a match format of [id]:[count],[id]:[count],.. (eg. 1:2,5:4,8:1).

Type Description
Special A plain pack
SpecialStrict A pack that fails immediately if only partially available, the app will do its best to make sure this pack is delivered in its entirety
SpecialAny Quantity on each ingredient is ignored, this pack resolves to the first code that is in stock (on the given realm/database)
SpecialAnyEven Quantity on each ingredient is ignored, this pack resolves to the code that has the highest stock (on the given realm/database)

Exporting

Drag your db.sqlite file onto dump-Codes.bat and it will export to a Codes-*.sql file.

  • This can be done even while iDB is running.
  • If you're about to do an import, it is always a good idea to back up your current set of codes.

Importing

Advanced users only!
Drag your *.sql file onto import-Codes.bat and it will import to db.sqlite.
After running iDB you will see a screen like this for a few minutes. If you have millions of items it can take up to an hour to reprocess all.


  • You should only do this if iDB is closed.
  • Since this operation does a full replacement, it must be full set of Codes, not just a partial set.
  • Be very careful not to change IDs of Codes that you are using with ShopDrop/AutoShop.
  • Be very careful not to mess up the formatting of your .sql file.

Images

Features

  • Item level is appended to the title
  • Unidentified uniques and sets will show the correct identified name (if possible):
  • Replenish over time stats (replenish quantity, etc) have the exact details:
  • Per level stats (life per level, etc) have the exact details:
  • Ethereal bugged items will have (Ebugged) appended to their title:
  • Upped items will have (Upped) appended to their title:

Hotkeys

While the image is showing, you can do CTRL+S to save the image to hard-drive.
While the image is showing, you can do CTRL+C to copy the image to clipboard.
While the image is showing, you can do CTRL+U to upload image to Imgur and copy link to clipboard.

Player Considerations

Be wary of items that potentially give +4 or more skills to non-owner classes, like Widowmaker which can spawn with up to +5 to Guided Arrow. In-game and in other kolbot-based droppers you might see that this Widowmaker has only +3 to Guided Arrow:
Due to the way oskills work, classes that own that skill (in this case Amazons) will be restricted to a maximum of +3. iDB will report the true value of +5 so you don't accidentally give away any godly items:
However, when calculating shield block and weapon speed, the item will be assumed to be held by the required class for the item, or if there is none, a sorceress. For level, strength and dexterity, all are assumed to be 1. Let me know if there is interest in having these choices configurable.

Databases

Databases are a virtual separation of items that allow the following configurations:
  • Priority for operations that span multiple databases (order preference, etc)
  • Whether or not web shop order delivery should be able to access
  • Whether or not ShopDrop order delivery should be able to access
  • Whether or not the characters should be auto-refreshed
  • Different limit IDs for using different keys & proxies via rDB
  • Special reseller access via iDB-Web

Processors

Databases are a virtual separation of items that allow the following configurations:

Name Description
Jobs Changes jobs from inactive to active (while obeying queue limits such as LimitPerRealm and also not activating a job for an account that is already active)
API: TCP Turns on a listener for PlainSocket network connections such as iDB-Web, PermIt, NeutronPlus, Kolbot, etc
API: HTTP Turns on a listener for WebSocket network connections such as iDB-Web, PermIt, NeutronPlus, Kolbot, etc
API: Allow New Drops If unchecked, drop requests will be responded with "Drops are temporarily disabled (service will restart soon)." (does not affect ShopDrop requests)
AutoRefresh Toggles the processor that checks for expiring characters and queues jobs to refresh them
Delivery Toggles the processor that communicates with the web shop for order delivery
ShopDrop Toggles the processor that communicates to the ShopDrop app (only controls iDB -> ShopDrop, to control ShopDrop -> iDB communication use the API: TCP processor)

Converting to non-ladder

When a ladder reset is coming close you should follow these steps.
  1. Uncheck all processors.
  2. Abort all jobs.
  3. Start a manual backup.
  4. A new set of files timestamped with the current date/time will be created. Wait a few minutes for the *-shm and *-wal files to disappear.
  5. In iDB's Items window, click on Convert to NL.

Recovery

Let's say you accidentally delete all your items and you're wondering how to restore them.
  1. Uncheck all processors.
  2. Abort all jobs.
  3. Close iDB.
  4. Open IIS and stop the website pool.
  5. Rename C:\Apps\iDB\db.sqlite to C:\Apps\iDB\db.sqlite.bak because it is a bad database now (or delete it).
  6. Rename latest backup file (like C:\Apps\iDB\db-2020-03-19-14.40.sqlite) to C:\Apps\iDB\db.sqlite.
  7. Open IIS and start website pool.
  8. Start iDB.

Important Notes

  1. Settings are stored in C:\Apps\iDB\iDB.xml.
  2. Databases, codes, items, etc are stored in C:\Apps\iDB\db.sqlite.
  3. Every 2 days your db.sqlite and your web logins are backed up to my server.
