When i go "indoors" in a city or enter an instance the minimap looses its alpha setting and gets set to 100% (settings still shows it at 60%), but if i open alpha setting and change it and then change it back i get the correct aplha.
There's a Blizzard issue in which the minimap tends to go blank if addons try to set non-100% alpha while indoors/instance. As a workaround, most minimap addons resort to forcing 100% alpha in those situations.
Having a minor issue with the alpha setting, works nice when im in the outeside world, but if i enter an instance it goes back to 100% and if i touch the alpha back down to its "normal" 60% (its at 60 but shows 100, i change it to something else and back) the entire minimap goes blank showing only arrows and dots...
The movers do work. The PvP score text in the center of your screen doesn't get moved by simpleMinimap because simpleMinimap doesn't have a mover for it - it only provides mover frames for things that are anchored to the minimap by default.
Hmm now that I think about it, I think I was confusing the capture mover as intending to be for the pvp score frame, until I remembered the whole world PvP capture progress bar thing.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm hesistant about using that as a solution though because:
1. it's had nothing but .toc bumps for a year (installing one old addon to gain functionality that is broken in another old addon sounds like a slippery slope to me :P),
2. it's a heavyweight "move everything" addon, when i just want to move the pvp score frame,
3. i've had issues with such addons causing the size of the text and/or icons on the pvp score frame to become huge or disconnected when i move it,
4. i've had issues with such addons tainting the UI so that i can't do things like opening the spellbook in combat,
5. simpleminimap has a capture mover that should be allowing me to move it, but doesn't due to lack of maintenance/interest. This is the most important point to me.
If you're not using the movers, you could just use RicoMiniMap or another minimap mod.
I wish the stupid movers worked. I'd really like to be able to move the PvP score frame (which is also used to show things like waves in Black Morass / Mount Hyjal) because it appears in the middle of the screen where my Pitbull Player and Target frames are.
Interesting. I grabbed the latest Cartographer two days ago and my custom map notes don't change to a circle of any sort when I get close to them. If I set a pink diamond or a yellow star, they stay the same the entire time. Not to turn this into a Cart thread but any insight on how to do that? Sounds like a good workaround! :D
I don't think user-created notes change to a circle/ring thing, just the ones created by the quest and professions/gathering modules.
I am using the Alldeuce compilation, and have grown to really like the square map in the center. However, and it happened after the server crashes on Saturday, my map has relocated itself back to the upper right corner of my screen, and nothing I have found indicates how to reverse this.
Drag it back to where you want it. You may need to unlock it first.
sue & wesley: i had a similar issue with the compass marks in rotating minimap mode. turns out that if you get the minimap too close to an edge of the screen, it will squish some textures. kind of sucks because it means i have to have a gap on the right-hand side now.
maybe it's just me, but the minimap no longer zooms in and out with the mouse wheel. Anyway to get that back? some command or keybinding (although I'm not clear on how I would have disabled that except for on purpose).
works for me. make sure that you have the option enabled in simpleminimap's options.
