Dec. 11th, 2006 @ 04:48 pm Randomness in macros?
Current Mood: confusedconfused
I noticed there were several options in the macro category that have "random" options. I was wondering if it's possible to program random tell macros. I did my first instance with a mage, and I want to do random tells when I sheep. I think there are addons that do this, too, but my trolls through the interweb didn't turn any up today.

Current Mood: curiouscurious
I've been without an Auction House mod since the patch. I'm trying to be patient until Auctioneer is out, but I suck at patience (and math). And I've always wondered anyway. Is there an alternative mod to Auctioneer?

Dec. 10th, 2006 @ 01:15 am New CT Raid for healers
Hey guys, I'm a 60 paladin and I need my emergency monitor, especially in 40 man groups. It seems that the new CT_Raid emergency monitor doesn't support targeting. I don't suppose there's a way to fix this, so does anyone know any emergency monitor mods that will support targeting? Thanks for your help.


PS - If anyone knows of something that can replace decursive please let me know about that as well.

Dec. 6th, 2006 @ 11:23 am BeneCast?
Ever since the UI changes were announced, I've been trying to find information about BeneCast and if someone is working to fix/update it for the new changes. I know the 'damage based heals' functionality won't work anymore, but I don't care about that, really, they can cast the highest rank of the spell for all it matters to me. I need the buttons to clear up space on my hot bars, it's a waste of space to have things like Shadowguard and Inner Fire (spells that only affect me, but need to be recast quickly when they run out, so casting from the spellbook isn't an option) on the standard Blizzard UI buttons.

I've looked up the names of a few mods that people told me were similar (GroupButtons, PartyCast), but none of them seem to be updated either.

In the new UI system, is it still possible to have a button that casts a specific spell on a specific target, or is this one of the things Blizzard has intentionally disabled?

i.e. I want a button next to each person in my party and on my current (friendly) target that will cast "Power Word: Sheild" ... normally I only need that in an "OH SHIT!" situation and clicking a button/pressing a key then targetting just takes too long. (Obviously, there are other spells I'd like on this button bar, too, but I'm just using one example for simplicity's sake, and PW:S is the one I've noticed the lack of the most.)

I'm pondering just writing my own mod to do this, but I've no idea where to start, or even if it's possible anymore.

So I checked worldofwarcraft and all my mods seem to have been updated except MyRolePlay. Does anyone know if this will be coming back?

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone.
I'd like to thank everyone for answering my lame mod questions.
I have one more for you.

I completely forget which addon I used for self-casting. I completely took it for granted, and now that I have to click on my character several times every 10-30 minutes to re-buff I now see how much I liked it.

What do you use for self buffing/casting?

Nov. 27th, 2006 @ 08:04 pm Titan issue?
Current Mood: frustratedfrustrated
Hello everyone.

I have finally finished uploading my addons that I had before the HD wipe.
Ever since I first got my addons I have always had this problem:
Half of the bottom line of my chat window is covered by my bottom bar. I have been told this was due to the Titan Bar. I was told to shrink the UI down, but everything shrinks, and the chat window is still partially covered.

Any suggestions?

Current Mood: annoyedannoyed, well... kinda
Hello everyone!

I just had my HD replaced and now I need to replace a whole whack of my addons.
One of the addons I have always had trouble with is 'Lore'. For anyone who isn't familiar with this addon, it basically allows you to speak different languages, and translate them to anyone you choose (including group, and guild translation).
Anyways, the problem I have always had with that one is when I add "Druidic" to my fluency list. After I relog my character into the game, it will automatically set my language to "Druidic". If I choose to switch back to Orcish, or Taurahe, I do not get the option to switch back to Druidic (or demonic etc etc).
I have been told by other users that they are able to switch back and forth, and I have witnessed the switching.

Does anyone know how to fix this, and which "Lore" packages should I download this time. (I was told by another player that cursegaming.com doesn't always have the most recent download.)

Any help would be much appreciated!

Has anyone seen or found an addon that will allow a raid leader to corrupt damage meters by sending information that is out of whack? I've heard of one that message with KLH threat meter, but never one for damage meters.

Sep. 18th, 2006 @ 09:32 am CT_mod replacements?
I'm trying to avoid using CT mod for the sake of my memory allocation, but there are a couple of things I just don't want to do without.

1. Does anyone know a mod that will do buff frames like CT buffmod? I'm not *too* worried about being able to show the name next to the buff (though that's handy), but more the ability to align them vertically down the side of the screen.

2. Is there anything like CT_raidtracker, ie that stores historical data about raid attendance and loot? The CT version is unreliable and regularly corrupts the saved data.

Sep. 17th, 2006 @ 04:28 pm Necrosis Alternative
A while ago Necrosis was recommended to me in the comments to a post here. I've been using it for ages (the LDC version) but I got fed up of it because sometimes the buttons would call the wrong thing. Eventually I ended up with just the number of soulshards, the healthstone and the soulstone buttons and put my summoning buttons back on my action bars.

I've been trying to reduce down some of my addons and ideally wanted something to replace necrosis that would work with FuBar (when I used Titan Panel I used Summoner and something else which did the work of Necrosis). I couldn't find anything quite what I wanted. But I did find this: ShardAce. As far as I can tell it's pretty much the same as Necrosis but without the pretty buttons and the voice when someone is feared (I will, admittedly, miss that cackle). However it is being kept up-to-date! It uses the Ace 1.x libraries. It's config is manual - no pretty ui I'm afraid - but it's easy enough to set up.

Anyway, I just thought I'd give a heads-up to anyone else who was fed up with Necrosis being out-of-date.

Current Mood: worriedworried
My server is probably next up for the 36-hour maintenance that will axe my friends list. I don't have a ton of people on it, but I do want to keep more than the handful of people I remember to re-add. Is there any sort of add-on or script people have written that would help do this? I'd do one myself if I had anything approaching the right amount of know-how, but alas, I don't.

Sep. 11th, 2006 @ 09:21 pm Question of Adds
Current Mood: apatheticapathetic
Hi! I'm a 55 shadow/disc priest on Shadow Council, and I have a question...

My guild requires me to have GEM, CTraid and other assorted addons most higher level guilds demand. I have no problem with this, but I play my game on a Mac- and all the addons they want me to use and I can't seem to configure for my computer, since all of them are for PCs. I've worn myself thin looking for addons that are usable on the mac, but no such luck! I'd be extremely grateful if anyone could point me out to a website that would let me get at least CTraid assist. Thanks!
