It's been quite a long time since last update. Is this dead?
Of course it is. Torhal hasn't updated any of his mods in nearly a year (or longer) and isn't responding to communication attempts.
FYI the latest update of NPC_scan was 13 September 2018, that aint a year yet ;), also he's been working on Ackis Recipe List +modules that has a release version from February (and Alpha from April) this year so it's not like he's been doing nothing and i'm sure Torhal also has other IRL obligations to consider then just wow addons.
BUT, i can fully understand the feeling that it is taking awhile for new releases to come out ... , so far most 8.1+ Rare's seem to be included in the latest version but i always wonder if a phew are not lol ^^, anyway i really hope that for patch 8.2 we will be getting a new version because the new Nazjatar and Mechagon zones will surely have new Rare creatures that i highly doubt are already included (or pre-coded).
on another note, i'm also hoping the long awaited "rewrite" of NPC_scan overlay will be done as well :), now that one you can say it's been more then 'awhile' xD
is it normal i can't seem to remove the NPC vignette during combat ? ,
i have the pop up showing me how to remove/ignore with the mouse clicks but as long as my char is in combat it wont go away, bit annoying if if you have several pop up @ the same time or it just happens to be anchored near a action button :p
