I installed the most recent Versions of SND(r14036) and PT(r15567) today. Did a few more tests. Now I got it to work fine, but only when I activate ORA2 at the same time. I even had a nice Minimap Icon for SND.
But as soon as I deactivate ORA2 neither Perfecttargets nor SupplyAndDemand work. Using CT_RA instead of ORA2 will not make PT work either.
Since I doubt this behaviour is intended, I can only make wild guesses, that something with the libaries of SD or PT is wrong and with all three running at the same time it uses ORA2s libaries instead.
With a cleaned out WTF folder and freshly downloaded and properly installed PT and SD, I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't be loading unless you had two installs of WoW on your computer and you are launching the wrong one.
As I tried to imply before that is exactly what I did.
I am currently using 15 ACE2 addons without any Problems(when not disabled for testing PT :P). I can handle installing them manually via SVN and by using WinAceUpdater easily. And the old ACE PerfectRaidtargets works as well.
I have only 1 instance of WoW installed. Not even a PTR client ;)
I will just use ORA2 until I get ACE2 PT to work. Its of course not such a nice lightweight and lacks the automatic target management, but I disabled most functions by editing oRA2.toc and I can enter Playertargets manually, which is of course not quite as good as what PT hast to offer.
Still thanks for all the comments. Although it didn't solve the problem it cheered me up just to see someone care :)
Well since I tried the old ACE version and it worked and I tried countless ACE2 versions which never did (some being LOD some not...) I guess it has something to do with the conversion from ACE to ACE2.
But I have no clue what it is and if I am the only one who can't get it to work then I guess asking for a fix is too much and thats just badluck for me ;)
Perfecttargets(PT) doesn't seem to work for me no matter what I do. This is the only addon which seems to have this problem and I tried many. But this one seems great and I'd hate to miss out.
Here is what I did:
1) Install PerfectTargets-r12749 and SupplyAndDemand-r14036 manually and activate each.
2) Deactivate all other Addons (I kept those deactivated for all further tests)
3) Delete WTF and WDB folders
4) Delete PT and SupplyAndDemand(SD), WTF, WDB folders and Install PT and SD through WinAceUpdater 1.5
5) Delete PT, SD, WTF, WDB Folder and Install PerfectTargets-r12271, since I figured PT not running might be related to SD and this Version has SD as optional dependency
6) Cry for hours ;)
The result was always the same. After each of the steps I ran the game and there was no indication of PT or even SD working. Entering /ptarg did not work(invalid command).
Can anybody give me any further hint on why Perfecttargets might not work or what I could try to get it running?
Edit: Forgot to mention I never got any error messages when starting WoW during those tests.
