Is that all you use it for? Repositioning the default tooltip is a trivial matter, takes like 4 lines of code. I'll poke at it later if that's all you want... but first I got a sick hubby, an empty stomach, downloaded Heroes, and *real* work I should do.
Well obviously, JT is adding crap on the side of the tip in the same place. Really stupid question, but what advantage does JT give? It seems to me that there's no point in getting the jewel item's tip because it displays the same info that's added into the main item's tip. Only thing I can think of would be the named enchants ("Mongoose", etc)... but the user damn well better know what that enchant does before they blow all that money on one... so they shouldn't need an extra tip.
Side note, JewelTips uses TipHookerLib... that makes me a very sad panda. I'm ashamed that THL even exists, it's not needed at all in every addon I've seen use it.
I'm not aware of another addon that displays the gems/enchants on item links, if there is one by all means point me that way. And as far as the advantage isn't the fact it shows you what the enchant does, but shows you the link with required materials
Not all mods are compatible with eachother, and people shouldn't expect them to be. The authors do not get together in one big room and say "what are you hooking? I'm hooking that, too. Oh - you're putting something there? Hmm... Maybe I'll place my thing over here." You need to pick and choose what you want and what is more important to you. Keep in mind that there are usually multiple addons that do basically the same things, but may do them differently.
Does JT work with the default Blizzard compare tooltip mechanism? (holding shift to show the compare tip) Because all tek does is show that compare tip all of the time - it's not even a new frame like EQCompare did. Anything that works with vanilla compare tooltips should work with tekKompare. And if they don't work together, then it's not tK's fault, and you need to pick one over the other.
(edit: besides already knowing that they existed, I found those two links by just searching for the word "enchant" on WoWI.)
EnchantMe is neat, but personally I just look stuff up on wowhead. It's not the kind of info I need access to all the time, so I don't see much point in loading a mod up for it. It's just simpler to ask an enchanter to link it, or hit up head.
If we're totally locking people out of any compare mods...then can we at least get someone willing to keep their current project updated and accessible through WAU?
It's kind of a dick move to just blatantly push back the TOC on code that (even though it might not be superbly written) worked for 98% of the thousands of people that use it.
Please cut the petty politics and realize that there are thousands of people that use WAU to update their shit and could care less about one tiny squabble between some of you power-tripped moderators.
Please, if you're going to maliciously break something in a fully working community supported project, please be aware that there are a number of users using just WAU who would at least like an alternative.
As has been said a number of times, EQC is not being updated, so there's no reason for it to be in WAU. Install the version you want to use and forget about it, there's never going to be anything to update unless someone adopts the addon... and that seems unlikely since there are two forks of it instead of someone picking up maintenance on it.
tekKompare has hovertips in it if that's the only feature you're after you can delete tekKompare.lua and leave HoverTips.lua.
Really, you have ruined the usage of perfectly working add-on for what sake? Mirror causes errors and doesn't have hoverlink, tK doesn't work properly with CowTip - what was the point to remove an add-on people didn't have any problem with?
You care so much that new ppl won't use outdated add-on? Well, create something to replace it, that will work at least as good it was.
I have posted Mirror error few days ago - noone payed attention on it. And this is your precious tK:
Every single compared tooltip looks like that.
I NEVER had this or any other problems with EQC, and still i don't have any using it. It is the one and the only properly working compare mod available atm.
Actually, I was getting these weird borders with EQCompare as well. I thought that I had tekKompare installed for that reason. Now that I have kicked EQ and installed tkK, I do not see much change - mangled border a bit more frequently perhaps, but that's it. Using CowTip without borders "fixes" the problem for me. Thanks to whoever pointed me to that "solution".
