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?

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!

Does anyone know of a threat meter that works in party? I don't care if it works in raid or not, I just need one that works in party so I can use it when my husband and I are grouped.

Thanks! =o)

Hey all, I lurk a lot here but rarely post (although I do tend to get somewhat spammy on worldofwarcraft, heh).

Anyway, i've been looking into mod-making recently, but I've hit something of a brick wall. Specifically, I'm trying my hand at writing a mod that will do Y (usually spam text on my screen or play a sound) when X occurs in-game. A good example of something similar is Exposed, which plays the earthshock/wrath "hit" noise and broadcasts a mesage to the channel of choice when the currently selected target is afflicted by Expose Armor (the 8-pc Dragonstalker set proc). CT_RaidAssist also does something similar with /rs and its boss mods, pulling up a sound that's already in-game (clock noises) when an /rs is broadcast to the raid.

My problem is... I want to use the already in-game sounds but I have no way of opening up the sound.MPQ file and extracting the paths of those sounds, or even of viewing what they are (because I'm on a Mac).

Does anyone know any list of these file paths, and examples of what they're currently used in in-game (example pulled from exposed: "Sound\\Spells\\LightningBoltImpact.wav" is the Wrath/ES hit noise previously mentioned)? Or even better, does anyone have an .mpq extractor/viewer file that works a) with WoW's gigantic .MPQ files and b) on a Mac running OSX?

Thanks! <3

Current Mood: curiouscurious
I've been doing a LOT of Battlegrounds recently and have noticed something.  There are several chars (Aggramar Server) that can pickup/tag the flag when dropped literally as it hits the ground.

There is simply no way.   I can't even react/move my mouse that fast.

Is there a pvp mod that auto clicks the flag when dropped and you are within a certain radious?

Anyone ?

Hello >waves< I play a 53 Tauren Druid on Khaz Modan...

I've been using mods for a while now and there are plenty I can't seem to play without. I found this video of a druid pvping and noticed the bar on the bottom left... anyone know what that is?? I have no clue how to find out other than ask you guys.

Sorry for the poor quality, screen was taken right from the video itself.. Couldn't control it :(

Aug. 16th, 2006 @ 02:05 pm Hunter aspects in Titan
I'm looking to see if there's a mod that will let me change my hunter's apects via a drop-down in Titan. I've looked at zHunter as a replacement for all my buttons on my sidebar, but it isn't for me, so please don't recommend it. I'd love to be able to, like the warrior's Stance Set options, just control it via a drop-down.

If there isn't one, I may have to figure out how to code one myself. Ye gods, don't make me do it, it'll never happen.

Aug. 9th, 2006 @ 03:01 pm Discord Art problems
Current Mood: aggravatedaggravated
Anyone familiar with Discord Art? I'm currently having a major problem with it, and when I look at the forums for it there seem to be others also having issues... but there has been no real response yet. Sadly I can't get to the website right now to check since I'm at work, but was hoping maybe someone here could assist. I just cleared out my entire Addons directory last night to try to get my UI set up a certain way with Discord Art, so I know its a problem specific to DART.

The problem is that when I log in, I instantly get two error messages pop up. One relates to the Blend Mode, the other one is some sort of update timer. If you look at the forums, you'll see that others have posted about this exact error, and I posted last night as well. I really want to get this set up working right, as I love the look/feel of the UI I found. Two hours of messing around with it last night left me very frustrated, so if anyone has alot of experience with this addon I'd greatly appreciate the help.

Oh, I also did the fix suggested, changing the one line to say "DISABLE" instead of "DISABLED", and it didn't fix anything.

Aug. 7th, 2006 @ 06:16 pm GEM and GuildAds
Current Mood: crankycranky
I was required to install two mods in a guild that I am no longer with. I can't stand either mod and want them gone from my system. Unfortunately deleting them didn't work, nor did leaving the channel. Now I'm getting flack from that guild to get out of their GuildAds channel and I *can't*. I left the channel for both, but I'm still popping up when I log on. Now I don't want to be affiliated with the guild any longer and I have no interest in either GuildAds or guild event manager. How can I get these buggers to go away? And why are they still auto joining the channels even though I've deleted both mods?

Any help is appreciated, this is quite annoying being hammered by questions the moment I log on. Added to that I have several unguilded alts that have created their own GEM channel automactically. Thanks!
