Current Location: United States, West Virginia, Vienna
Current Mood: frustratedfrustrated
So, I've just started using Vuhdo on my resto/balance druid, and I've run into a problem that makes me very sad and frustrated. I set it all up the way I want, set the spells to the bindings the way I want, and I'm happy. I really love this addon.

But when I switch spec it loses the bindings for the spells. I read the FAQ and searched over the homepage for it, but just couldn't find an answer to this problem. Can someone help point out to me what I'm missing to save the bindings so I don't have to reset them each and every time I switch specs? :(

Edit: No Vuhdo tag, or anything else but discord mods. Sadface.

Aug. 28th, 2009 @ 09:01 am Looking for a mod...
Current Music: Eyerer & Chopstick - Haunting (Christopher Just Remix)
So, I'm looking for a mod which will allow me to make notes about people in-game.

I know there are a variety of addons which will allow you to make notes about the characters on your friends list or your ignore list, but I don't want to add the people in question to either list - I just want to be able to make notes like "Was a sexist ass in trade channel" or "Did less DPS than the tank in last heroic" or whatever, and then see the list of flagged people later.

Anything out there that'll do the job?

First off, I would like to apologize if this has already been posted and for this not being an addon, but more of an addition. I figured this was just too good of a suggestion to not link to you all. Since I am sure this technically violates the terms of the community the mod is more than free to delete this post.

Anyways, for all you WoW heads out there I came across a post in the suggestions forum and thought it was a great idea. The post is regarding a new hero class that was thought up by Agrigor from the Shadow Council realm. Anyways, I am linking his original post for those of you that wish to read thru it. If you like the idea, go to the forum and bump the suggestion and comment away. They have also added some abilities and what have you in the later replies of the thread.

Ok so I've asked this before but with all the upgrades for WoTLK, I need some help again. For some reason my add-ons have disappeared. My files are on my comp, but I cannot access them. I just downloaded Cartographer 3.0, and can't get it to show up on my login. Is there a post in the forums about it? Or any technical ppl know what my problem is?

Does anyone know if any good addons to help me quest and level is a more efficiant manner? I am not looking for a bot. Right now I have QuestHelper, Koordinator, and TomTom. I also tried Tourguide and I am essentially looking for something that would be a mix of what QuestHelper is and what Tourguide tried to be lol. The one thing I liked out Tourguide is that is essentially layed out the most direct routes in a checklist to get things done. It told me what quests to pick up and what not to bother with. I didn't like the fact that it wouldn't mark things on the map (which QuestHelper does), and it seemed to me like you'd have to start from scratch to really utilize the addon. It was telling me to pick up and turn in quests I didn't have, nor were they available to me. I have kept QuestHelper because it marks things on the map and tells me what I need to complete each quest on the map, however, it doesn't essentially guide me in what to pick up and what to skip. Any ideas?

I'm loving Fubar since switching to it almost a month ago. The last little while, though, I'm getting errors, and I think it's from my LocationFu addon. It's the one plugin I have that doesn't seem to have new versions come out. Is there an alternate Fubar coordinates addon plugin thing?

Nov. 16th, 2007 @ 08:21 pm Bartender3 problem - not patch related
I wanted to post this when i first noticed the problem 2 weeks ago but didn't get a chance. I'm hoping someone can point out what I'm overlooking.

I use Bartender3 for my bars and I'm pretty pleased with it. But recently, a problem popped up on all of my characters *except* my druid. I can't use my keyboard to use my attacks. I have the hotkey enabled and all of my settings are the same on *all* characters. This is definitely a Bartender problem, because when I turn off all other mods the problem still exists.

Yes, i'm using the most recent version, but like I said the problem was around before the patch came out.

screenshot examples under cutCollapse )

This is particularly annoying because I like to use my keyboard a lot on my warrior. Any help is appreciated :) The main Ace forums didn't have anything noticeable on this issue and I've googled around and the only info I found that was the somewhat the same was a rogue stealthing problem (which my rogue isn't experiencing). But, my googlefu might be off today.

Nov. 14th, 2007 @ 12:11 am Addon question
So, I've been meaning to trash my old UI and build one up from Blizzard's base to suit my needs, and I thought to myself that patch 2.3 was a great excuse to do so. This is it so far. Currently using ag_UnitFrames, aUF_Layouts, Baggins, Bartender3, Cartographer, CyCircled, Elkano's Buff Bars, Fubar [Ammo, Bag, Clock, Money, Performance, and Recommended Zone], Prat, and Quartz, but it's not done yet. Still a few things I'd like to add, and most of them I know where I'll be getting them. There's one that I don't though, and I'm not even sure what search terms to use when looking for it.

As you can see in the screenshot I linked above, the bottom of my screen is dominated with chat windows and my buttons. They have 0% transparency, as I pretty much avoid transparency whenever possible. What that means, though, is there's stuff happening behind that portion of my screen that I don't get to see. Admittedly, it's not too important what is happening back there, but what I'd like to do is set up a fake widescreen, I guess. Have it so that it starts above my chat logs, if that makes sense.

So here's my question: Is there an addon that can do that, and if so, where I can nab it? Ace-compliant is preferred, but if it isn't, I can accept that.

Thanks for your time.

Edit: Found what I was looking for in Aperture. Did what I wanted in a very easy way, and as a bonus, it was an Ace addon. Much thanks to all who responded, and sneaky especially for recommending it.

does anyone here use XPerl? because it only has warriors in the tank targets bit and since we quite often have druids and paladins tanking and offtanking, is there

(a)   something that i haven't ticked that will include these guys as options -- i dont' have CT and the RLs dont use it anyway so that option is useless


(b)  some other mod that's not a huge effort where i can select my own tanks?

i don't run with my raid boxes up, either XPerl or blizzard because when it comes down to it, i only need to see my target's ankle.

Sep. 30th, 2007 @ 09:05 am Ace replacements for CT components
My last "I don't know my mods" post was answered quite well, so I'm here to bug you with another one.

As I'm too lazy to write any mods myself, I only have these lowbrow questions for the community.

In my continuing quest to get more Ace mods and fewer "other stuff" mods, I have questions about replacing pieces of CT_Mod. I've found I don't actually use all that much OF CT_Mod anyway, but I'm lazy and copy the entire thing into the addons directory, so cutting things out would definitely be good.

CT_MailMod: I hear BulkMail and Postal are both potentials, here. Which is better? Which is worse? Why? I also see Express Mail and Postman listed as alternatives, but I haven't seen anyone recommend either. Anyone used them? Like them? Don't like them?

CT_MapMod: I don't use much of its functionality, but I do use a bit. It seems like Cartographer is the obvious replacement.

CT_BarMod / CT_BottomBar: On this, I have no clue. I don't do a lot with my interface, and I'm not interested in doing a lot. However, the two dragons have to go away. I put my chat windows on the side of the bars and they don't fit with the dragons. Deleting the XP bar and letting me move things down would be nice, too. See my boring, lame UI here. Easy to set up / figure out are pluses.

Thanks for any knowledge you can share!

Edit 2:55PM CDT: I've been using CT_Mod since before I bought my current system. I have a Mac Pro and a 30" Cinema Display. I'd get 30-60 FPS (which, with the system drawing over 4 million pixels, isn't too bad, IMO). I disabled all of CT_Mod, replacing the components I cared about with Bartender, Cartographer, and Postal. I was just seeing 90 - 112 FPS. Sometimes it would drop to 60.

Jul. 27th, 2007 @ 06:07 pm Item Rack - Other Options?

It's time for the dumb question of the day!

I currently use ItemRack as my gear management mod. However, I'd like to use something else... I'm sitting here updating my addons and I have no idea if anyone has even touched ItemRack in months. I'd like something with more active development, something that has a website where it's updated (even if it's just on curse, or whatever) that I can bookmark and come back to. Honestly, I 'd prefer something Ace based that can be found on WoWAce, but if there's not something that will fit my incredibly-picky bill there, I'd happily go elsewhere for what I want.

As far as what I want goes: I like ItemRack, except for this whole, "When was the last update?" bit. I find it easy to use and it still works (so I might not change, anyway). I currently use it primarily to switch between sets on my druid. I want an easy way for me to manually switch sets. I don't care much about automated switching - I don't really want the mod switching based on when I shift. I wouldn't mind something that could put on the boots with spurs when I mount up, but that's by no means a requirement.

I use FuBar, and I like it and its various pieces quite a bit. If there was something that tied into FuBar for the manual item switching, that'd be fine with me.

I've used Wardrobe before, I think. This was after using ItemRack, and I switched back to ItemRack fairly quickly. I don't remember why I didn't like Wardrobe, though.

AFK for dinner (yes, right after posting), so it'll be a while before I get back with responses to comments. I'm still very interested in all the info yall can give me.

Many thanks!

Jan. 13th, 2007 @ 04:31 pm quest log addon
Current Music: Air - Alone In Kyoto
does anyone know of any addons that simulate the functionality of uberquest that are ace2 compliant and work with the most recent set of patches?

uberquest was basically a mod that made your quest log double wide. one side was just quest titles (what's normally in the upper 1/3) and the other side is just quest text. this may sound petty, but it makes looking through your quest log a LOT easier when you're on a bunch of non related quests all over the game.

Jan. 1st, 2007 @ 01:06 pm A few addon questions
Current Mood: confusedconfused
Current Music: stupid song I made the mistake of listening to (2 weeks ago!) and can't get out of my head
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!

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.

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.
