Was trying to do some BSing last night (with yesterdays build sorry dont have version) and everytime I tried to make anything it gave me an error missing ingredient. The missing ingredient wasn't even a part of the recipe I was trying to make. Tried multiple recipes and same result.
Help. This has the potential to be my favorite WoW mod but one thing is holding it back. I'm too old and blind to read the damn thing! :) Is there not a way to resize the font? I really have to strain to read the materials needed, cost etc...
How can I resize the fonts? my eyes can't take much more and I dont want to have to switch back to the Advanced Tradeskill mod.
I had an issue today creating a Deadly Blunderbuss with my engineer. I had the list mats in my inventory and was near an anvil. I got the message: "Missing reagent: coarse blasting powder". I thought "OK I have some of that in the bank." I went and got it, returned and tried again. I got the message: "Missing reagent: bronze bar". Now I thought "WTF?"
I removed Manufac and returned to ATSW. It has its warts, but at least it works.
"Missing reagent" messages have nothing to do with Manufac. They're generated by the server after you've told it what you want to make, and are dependent on what you have in your inventory -- neither of which Manufac has anything to do with after you've used it to tell the server what you want to make.
If you're getting "missing reagent" messages about materials that are not actually needed for what you tried to make, you need to refresh your profession list. Manufac caches the list of things you can make, which generally makes it much faster to access, but occasionally it gets out of sync with the server. Just close and reopen your profession from the spellbook or an actionbar button (not the FuBar/minimap icon) once or twice to refresh the list.
Phanx: Read my message again. I tried to craft an object and Manufac was using the wrong recipe. It's true my server and Manufac's cache may have been out of sync, but that's certainly not the servers fault. What's left... Manufac! If it's a caching problem then there's something wrong with the way it's being done, in Manufac. I've not seen this with other trade skill addon's.
I was not slamming the addon, just that there was a problem with it. Your workaround is not a permanant solution to the problem.
I don't know what the mats are for Engineering recipes -- all you said was that you got error messages about missing reagents. That leaves me (and every other non-Engineer) to guess at the actual source of your problem.
I've had Manufac screw up my cache maybe three times in six months or so of using it. I'd much rather have to refresh my list once every two months than have to wait for the addon to retrieve my entire profession list every time I go to make something. It's also worth mentioning that Manufac is many times less resource-intensive than ATSW etc., another benefit I feel is worth the "inconvenience" of having to refresh my profession list every few months.
There may be a better way to handle caching, I don't know, but posting "I deleted this and am using X addon instead because at least it works" is probably not the best way to get anyone to help you.
Any chance it can show the missing ones for the skills I have.
I'd like to know what recipes/schematics I'm missing while in game.
I think this is planned, but for now you can use what I'm using: FGTradeLacker. To use it, put Manufac on standby (it requires the default window), open your tradeskill window, and type "/fgtl", and it'll print out a list in your chat frame. Not the most elegant solution, but easier than manually cross-referencing with a list on Wowhwead or something. :P
