I have noticed a small issue, when speaking to certain NPCs that are both quest-related and vendors/grypho riders the mod will auto-skip the gossip. Its only minorly annoying as I realize whats happening and have to go temporarily disable the mod's auto-skip setting while I turn in/accept a quest.
This has happened frequently with gyphon master related npcs, not certain if you feel its worth addressing and temporarily not skipping the conversation :).
This behavior was added in the game by the 2.3 patch. It has nothing to do with this mod anymore.
Yep, no taint here. But a mod error occurred during a 10-man raid last night (the first error with this mod I can ever remember). r55799, standalone libraries, USEng server/client:
"Minimalist-4.0.1\\Minimalist.lua:577: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)\"
The error racked up 71 repeats very quickly before they stopped. Unfortunately was unable to duplicate it later and/or remember what was happening when it occurred. Was likely in combat.
The Minimalist features that were enabled at the time:
--(the new) Disable Chat Fading
--Fix Arrow Keys
--World Map Button (note that having this enabled actually turns off the minimap button; have to uncheck it to get the button back)
There were two chat/minimap/reputation mod changes done yesterday before the error occurred:
1)Updated Rep2 (using that as a chat log reputation mod as well). Large code changes by a new author. Been using this mod for a long time.
2)Now that its working properly, switched to using BasicChatMods' sticky.lua instead of the ancient (but still working) Caeryn's StickyChat. All other features in BasicChatMods I disabled in the TOC. Was using Caeryn's StickyChat since last year, never had a problem with Minimalist in that time.
No errors or problems with either of those mods currently. But those are the only changes I made to mods prior to experiencing the error I can think of that may be interacting with Minimalist features I'm using.
Error reported by me 2 posts above that happened on Friday (Minimalist-4.0.1\\Minimalist.lua:577: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)\) happened again on Sunday, again in a 10-person raid. It didn't happen on the Saturday raid, though ;).
Minimalist-4.0.1\\Minimalist.lua:577: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value) has occurred yet again with the same, latest r55799. This time have narrowed down the cause; its almost certainly bugging out & conflicting with Rep2 (r56984).
Had Minimalist's "Better Reputation" option turned off. Rep2 was active. Obtained a few rep increases from monster killing during the session; no problems. But then on a quest turn in, went from Honored to Revered with a faction. Immediately when this happened, the bug mentioned above was thrown up.
Next, enabled Minimalist's Better Reputation option while still leaving Rep2 on. Killed some more rep-gaining monsters. On a rep gain, Minimalist's option overrode Rep2; the Rep2 text never showed up in the chat window. As well, on every single rep-gain kill, the error above repeated. Turned off Better Reputation, the errors stopped.
So this needs to get along better with the updated Rep2.
Before you start asking me why I replied in this topic:
- Minimalist is still being updated. ("Minimalist-r69037.3.zip" with build date 13-05-2008 is latest version)
- I've been sucessfully using "Minimalist-r61895.2.zip" (26-03-2008) up to patch 2.4.1
- It's a must-have addon imo.
Ok now the real reason why I'm replying here.
After Patch 2.4.2, "Minimalist-r61895.2.zip" (26-03-2008) also broke down and I can't seem to get the latest version to work.
So I decided to check out the "embeds.xml" file and I found out that
is incorrect. ("Abacus folder doesn't exist anymore)
i last played wow on monday and minimalist was working a-okay, however it is no longer working at all. it's not loading even though it is checked on in the addon screen. i have updated the ace2 library. i have downloaded and installed the latest version off of files.wowace.com. i've even tried the file that skillz posted above. the game just doesn't see it there at all. i get the help message when i type in /minimalist or /min.
any ideas why it isn't working any longer? i'm assuming the game patched on tuesday... i haven't noticed if it did or not.
