Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Non of my searches are working

Non of my searches are working.
This post suggests dragging and dropping. I can drag an auction but I can’t figure out how to drag a search.
http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/forums/1/topics/5811#

I had someone that knows Java look at the source code. Version: 2.99pre5-2-g7251940
He is thinking ebay moved from CGI to web services.
To me that means JbidWatcher isn’t working for anyone. Not just me.
Is that true?
Can anyone get JbidWatcher working?
I’m using Win7

Thanks,
Docfxit

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / my portable command line option

Here is my command line options I use to run JBidwatcher-2.99pre5 for Windows.

Hope it is useful for some one.

Just add thise line below to a batch file and save (example jbidwatcher.bat)
There are two important things you should do.
1 Make sure the path for javaw.exe and JBidwatcher are correct
2 -Duser.home=D:\dat\jbidw (change the path and folder name where you want to put Jbidwatcher home directory where it keeps all data.

“C:\pro\jre8x64\bin\javaw.exe” -Xmx256m -Duser.home=D:\dat\jbidw -classpath “C:\pro\JBidwatcher\JBidwatcher-2.99pre5.exe;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\annotations.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\aopalliance.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\apple.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\derby.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\guice-3.0.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\guice-assistedinject-3.0.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\javax.inject.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jbidwatcher;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jbidwatcher\gems.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jDeskMetrics.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jdesktop.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jl1.0.1.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jline-2.11.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jruby-incomplete.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\json_simple-1.1.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jsoup-1.7.1.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\jsr305-1.3.9.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\l2fprod-common-fontchooser.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\mahalo.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\readline.jar;C:\pro\JBidwatcher\lib\txtmark.jar” com.jbidwatcher.app.JBidWatch

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Searches failing

Yes, thanks, that brings back the thumbnails too. Well, if you have saved searches and listings, then you need to rebuild those too.

OK in the end I moved/archived my entire JBW preferences folder and started again fro scratch. This not only solved the problem with searches but also got the thumbnails back which is an added bonus.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Searches failing

My saved searches have stopped working (late July)
I can still add by dragging but both new text searches and cut/paste searches from eBay all fail “No new results from for search…”

This is really bad for me. Any thoughts? Should I archive all the past data and start again?
thanks

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

sorry to hear that.

Today my JBW sniped and won again. My Mac probably is in screen sleep mode, but it fired, and here’s what I use:

JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940)
OS X 10.12.6

I just leave my computer, and it will have eventually black screen, but it will stay on and fire snipes.

Well, don’t see much of a difference, as I was on 10.12.5 and JBW worked too, The only thing might be that your system is set to sleep and it did not wake in time. Check your energy settings.etc. I upgraded to SSD and lots or RAM so I keep the machine on 24/7 and not to worry much about heat generated by rotational HDD anymore. It works well so far for me, except that the thumbnails don’t work now, but it does not hinder JBW ability to snipe for me so far.

Let me know if anything else you see as could be changed to make it work for you again.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

I had the same problem last night. JBid missed the auction. It prep’d and fired too late (14sec). I had it set to an 8sec snipe so a 22 second error.
AFAIK time was synch’d.
OSX 01.12.5
JBid 2.99pre5
1Gbs ethernet (at work)

Listing ended at Wed Aug 02 01:45:49 AEST 2017

Wed Aug 02 01:43:45 AEST 2017: Loading bid request…
Wed Aug 02 01:43:46 AEST 2017: Done loading bid request, got form… (that should have been enough time)
Wed Aug 02 01:46:03 AEST 2017: Submitting bid form. (missed it)
Wed Aug 02 01:46:03 AEST 2017: Firing actual snipe.
Wed Aug 02 01:46:05 AEST 2017: Cancelling snipe.
Wed Aug 02 01:46:05 AEST 2017: Cancelling snipe, auction is reported as ended.

My older MacPro at home (10.8.6 max’d out OS, Jbi prev version) doesn’t synch anymore, but at least it fires on time.

Unfortunately I think my beloved JBidW is dead in the water and unreliable. :-(

Well done on a great product though Morgan. :-)
I think i even donated $$ a few years back.

Cheers Rob

I tried logging into both the .com and .ca ebay servers, neither work right.
It used to work though. :-)

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / partial login

Sorry I don’t have any other suggestions besides the logout/login at the eBay website. You said you’re in Canada, but are you using the Canadian or US eBay website?

After I resolved my “partial login” problem a couple of days ago, JBW was still not picking up my watched items. Today I started it up and it loaded in the new watched items on it’s own. Just successfully sniped an auction too, thanks Morgan!

I guess the captcha thing was temporary because now it doesn’t error on that but it still shows the partial login.

The “test login” button says: eBay put up a captcha to prevent programs from logging in to your account".
Maybe because I’m in Canada?

I still can’t get it to log me in.
I deleted everything and now I can’t even partially log in.
I will try the Windows version.

Fixed issue: logged out and back in to eBay in browser, then did a “refresh eBay session” in JBW and again have the green light.

I am using 2.99pre5-2-g7251940.
The login status is yellow and the bubble help says “Last login did not clearly fail, but no valid cookies were received”.

I don’t see anything from ebay.

The output says:

I also see:

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

I am not having that problem with settings of 9 seconds on my end. I am using OS X 10.12.5 and still keeping winning auctions despite not getting any thumbnails images.

Perhaps you can update your Mac OS, and in JBW, under SERVERS pull down menu bar, select to view the “Time Information”, and then “Synchronize Time”.

My Time here has a Page Load time = 1075, and eBay time delta = -326

Goodluck.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

Hello,
recently I experience that Snipes are failing.
Although Snipe time is set to 12 secondes, the Snipe is fired to late.
The internal watch is correct, so the snipe fires to late and thus I lost some auctions.
I’m currently on MacOS 10.12 using JBidwatcher v2.99
Any tips would be highly appreciated.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Cannot Update

You might want to try just go download directly and install it (to replace the old version). I am on (JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940)) and it says it’s the current version. It’s working for me, as I can win snipes but it does not add more Thumbnails anymore, but it snipes and I am using it. It’s the Edge version, and you can download directly below:

http://www.jbidwatcher.com/download/JBidwatcher-2.99pre5.dmg

I am running OS X 10.12.5 corei7 2.7Ghz

Good Luck.

I am unable to update JBidwather. I can download the update or start to… after the 70.1 mb has been dowloaded I get a message that the update could not be downloaded at this time. Try again later… I’ve been trying since the update came out. :) Any body else have this problem? I am on a macbook pro running 10.12.2

FYI, restarted JBW and drag/drop returned – very odd. Did this after adding new auctions by auction number stopped working. Both work now. Still, no pictures…
