okay, so i got bored and wanted to goof around with a simple idea. so here's GnomeDust!
what's it do?
GnomeDust adds a colorful pixie-dust effect to your cursor when you cast enchants. runs great on my machine, but i can't tell you how it might run on yours.
why would you want this?
you probably don't.
just unzip and enjoy(?). if anybody actually thinks it's worthwhile, i'll fire it over to the svn so it'll make the files list.
if you don't have enchanting but want to play with it, cast any spell that brings up a targeting cursor (probably anything that makes the blue outlined hand thing). then do "/script GnomeDust.spawn = true" to see just what you're not missing.
edit: zip file removed. can be downloaded from the files section or svn. (or wowinterface)
oh nice. people actually used it! i was thinking i'd like to have the colors based on the reagents of the enchant. i could also base the core color on the rod requirement. maybe tweak the parameters of the particles based on some other factors so that each enchant would look different in some way.
so what am i doing wrong here? i committed to svn... doesn't that automatically send it to the files list and make it downloadable via the various ace updaters? did i forget a step somewhere? do i need something particular in the .toc file? i feel like i'm missing a step...
fix your file name cases. your directory is GnomeDust, but your toc is gnomedust.toc. Your toc lists GnomeDust.lua, but your file is named gnomedust.lua. Be consistent across both, and the zip script will treat you right.
not every filesystem is case-insensitive. as it exists now, your addon will -not- load correctly on some macs and linux systems.
