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.
How do I get the Minimap Zoom buttons to be in a reasonable place when I'm using the TopRightCorner skin? What about the Blizzard Tracking button? Both are overlapped by the map. The zoom buttons aren't even that accessible and still are aligned for a circular map. Thanks!
I use visor2 to get them exactly where i want em (and to fade the alpha of em to near invisible).
I have been having some problems with the movers, if i have em off the quest timer and sopme other stuff gets stuck in the wrong places.
But with em on i get those annoying boxes, i have set alpha to 0 so they dun show, but they block the clicking of objects behind and generate tooltips when moused over, is there no way to get the movers to save the location when turned of?
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...
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.
no 3 i have only seen happen with "moveanything", but MA handles bags better then Visor.. and so on :/ but i stick to visor for now atleast since it lets me change alpha and scale of the frames it moves.
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.
Where could i get that mover addon? Moveanything or moveit addons dont have that option, to move the spellcraft button.
Moveanything should be able to move it (have to use the framefinder function) same with Visor2, just have to either know the name of the frame or use the frameinder function that most of these addons come with.
Just cos its not in the list of frames dun mean u can't move it.
Yea i thought that too, so i used moveanything addon to relocate the minimmap instead of simpleminimap but the spellcraft button moved with it aswell. The thing is i can still move spellcraft button freely after i place the minimap where i want. It just messes up when i reload the game.
Ok here is the exact quote of what the spellcraft author Batrick told me: The problem is not with Spellcraft but the Addon moving/replacing the Minimap. The minimap addon you are using hides the old minimap and creates a new one. I have no realistic way of knowing if another addon does this. The author of simpleminimap needs to, and you can tell him this, "collect the children anchored to the real minimap, and set their anchors correctly to his. Further, he needs to replace the old _G["Minimap"] table with his addon's minimap frame's table".
The problem is that the spellcraft button anchors to the minimap instead of a fixed spot on the screen.
Insted of using the mover addon to move the minimap, use it to move the spellcraft button. This should force lock it to the location set by the mover.
@Seerah: To be honest, i have no idea what would be better. I know nothing about addons, i just use them. I just know that whenever i move the minimap frame, the spellcraft button moves aswell (spellcraft button can be placed anywhere not just on the minimap). I guess when i reload the game, spellcraft thinks it is on the upper part of the screen becasue it is stickied onto the minimap.
If there is a chance i would also like to hear the simpleminimap author's word before i contact the spellcraft author again.
Sounds like the spellcraft button somehow sets its position relative to the minimap instead of a "fixed" location on the screen.
But if u use a framemover it should stay where u put it.
