Jan. 1st, 2007 @ 01:06 pm A few addon questions
Current Mood: confusedconfused

Ok, so prior to the patch I only had a few addons since my computer sometimes hated them. I disabled them all after they broke at patch and wasn't playing much for a while. I now have a new computer and am trying to get things set up with what has been updated. So far I've been able to get Titan and some of their plug-ins, Advanced Trade Skill Window, Receipe Book, SCT, RPG Character Profiler, Mob Info and the Auctioneer Beta. I had the Gatherer/Enchantrix combo but that's still not updated. So, I have a few issue currently.

#1 - It used to be that when I looked at an item, the vendor cost would come up in the tool tip. This was handy for several reasons, not the least of which is that when there was a choice between two quest rewards I couldn't use either of, my avaristic tendencies would make me choose the item I would get the most money from. This seems to be missing right now. I somehow thought it was part of Auctioneer but perhaps it was something Enchantrix had. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and/or know how to get this info back from the addons I currently have? Or is it part of the default that I have somehow turned off?

#2 - I miss Enchantrix and Gatherer for obvious reasons. I have no clue when they're going to be updated, but I don't know much about other options. Anyone have any recommendations?

#3 - I'm finally ready to start playing around with the UI more and move stuff around. I've gotten many recommendations for Bongos since it's supposedly easier to deal with than others. For those that use it, would you agree or disagree with this?

Thanks in advance!

1) The tooltip is part of the Auctioneer stuff. I think it's Informant. Beta is available on the Auctioneer site.

2) Enchantrix is in beta on the Auctioneer site. I have no idea about Gatherer.

3) I tried Bongos after the patch. Love it (although I've barely played since the patch). I heartily recommend it.

Interesting. The beta version of Auctioneer I got from Curse was missing a bunch of things they had in the zip on their site. I'll try again, thanks!

I got Auctioneer from their own site: http://auctioneeraddon.com/dl/

You have to download each thing seperately - go to the developer section at the bottom and get each one individually. I doubt they'll do a package with them all in until they come out of beta!

1) You need Enhanced Tooltip and Informant for the vendor information. It's both included in the latest beta, download the Auctioneer Complete version from the authors' site.

2) Enchantrix has a beta as well, but Gatherer will still not be functional for a while. I replaced Gatherer with Cartographer which is kinda Atlas and Gatherer rolled into one, but without the more statistical information of Gatherer. Basically, marks nodes for you on world map and mini map, that's all that I need. Gatherer data can be converted to Cartographer, but it's a bit tricky. You're a guildie, I'd gladly help with that, if you're interested.

3) Bongos rules, very easy to set up. Takes some time getting used to fiddling with stances, but again, I'll gladly offer help. Still, pretty self-explanatory, the whole addon, the best bar addon I know.

I am nuts about addons, so if you're ever looking for anything specific, hit me up, you know where to find me. ;)

Hey T :)

1) I was able to get the version from their site and it seems to be working just fine, thank goodness. It's hard to believe how used you get to something until it's gone.

2) I'll definitely look into Cargographer. I main just like knowing whats around; don't care quite so much about the statistical stuff. I think all the Gatherer files are still on the old computer (I don't remember deleting them but there's a chance I did). I'd love to know how to convert it over so I don't lose all the node info I had.

3) I started on the set up of Bongos; have a setup that seems ok. Need to actually fight/play/etc to see how it works, but so far I'm pretty happy with how things look. I am definitely confused about the stance thing. I tried to do it on my DotA rogue for stealthing but I must not be doing something right cause I don't think it worked.

Once I get more comfortable with Bongos (since this was a big step for me :P ), I'll see about picking up some more class specific add ons. So I may very well be calling on you for info. :)

As to Cartographer, there's a Perl script I have used to convert my Gatherer data. If you mail me your Gatherer.lua (that's in the SavedVariables subfolder), I'd convert it for you. I'll send you my address in-game. :)

As to stances in Bongos, try this: Add all your stealth buttons to one of the action bars. In my example, let's say your normal attack bar is 1, and all your stealth actions are on bar 6. Add a stance for Stealth, leave the offset at 1-1, enter 5 for pages. This means when you change into stealth, your bar 1 will go down 5 pages, and end up at bar 6. Hope that makes sense. :)

I don't think I know a lot of class-specific addons for the classes you play, though I do have a few nice hunter addons. There's also GotWood for shamans that's supposed to be pretty awesome.

Ok, I'll check on the other computer to see if the file is still there. I doubt I deleted that out, so it probably is.

Yep, I was doing the stance thing wrong. I'll fix it. Thanks!

Yeah, the shaman thing might be helpful. Oof, all those totems...
