Market cache import
EVE Mentat can load market information directly from EVE Online client’s cache. In combination with IGB market scanner it is the fastest way to import market data on your orders to EVE Mentat.
Feature is based on EVEMarketOrdersFromCache tool developed by AVE and bundled with EVE Mentat.
There is no EVE Online EULA violation because this tool doesn’t modify the cache, just reads.
Select Market browser tab, right mouse click on Cache import toolbar button then select Cache import settings… (Or via File -> Preferences menu command)
In the settings dialog you can specify up to 5 different EVE Online clients or cache folders. Mixing is not allowed. Market data will be retrieved from all specified locations sequentially:
When Use direct path to cache folders option is on you have to specify only direct path to cache folders.
sign indicates correct path to EVE Online client or cache folder.
sign indicates incorrect path.
sign indicates empty path (will be skipped during import)
Note: usually path to cache folder looks like C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\f_play_eve_tranquility\cache (according to client located at f:\Play\EVE).
It is recommended to turn on Import only new market data check box. This significantly increases performance of market import.
Reset button can be used to suppress previous option once.
You can select cache import as default market data source. Right click on Cache import tool button and select Use cache import by default as shown on picture:
- Manual: open market window, search for needed items and view market order for them.
- Automatic: import your character or corporate orders, activate IGB feature, open proposed link in the game browser, select character or corporate Market scanner, activate it, wait till the end of scan.
Note: In order to work correctly, market window in game should display orders, not history.
Switch to EVE Mentat, activate Market browser tab, press Cache import tool button or use Ctrl+I keyboard shortcut anywhere on main window.
