Cleaning out the last of my ace mods, and thought I'd try my hand at writing an addon finally. It works as far as I can tell, and is just a port of the original, but I didn't copy over any of the options/etc as I don't use them.
Yes, without the options (such as specifying chat frame for output, or even getting confirmation that its active or not), there is really no reason for anyone to change from RepToGo. You end up with a mod with far less functionality. That is, if you still have Ace 1 around and don't mind it being there.
Except if you, like me, don't use those options, and as such don't need them, it works just fine. I didn't feel the need to learn how ace2 db works for an option I don't need or want, and I needed to get rid of one of my last ace1 addons, excuse me :p
I was going to go back and readd that stuff at some point, but after that, I find little desire to do so.
Now to the problem. Sometimes when I gain reputation (I think it's when i gain a rep level) I get an error from Prat, and the text on how much until next level won't show up until I relog.
Prat-2.0 54518.57072\Prat.lua:1417: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
Very similar problem, but here its Minimalist throwing up the error when I gain a rep level (going from say Friendly to Honored) with Rep2 enabled. I've already reported it in the Minimalist thread:
Minimalist-4.0.1\\Minimalist.lua:577: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)\.
Happens consistently on every rep level increase. Has also happened occasionally on plain monster-kill rep gain.
Reporting it here for two reasons. First is because its the same error just reported by the previous poster, but theirs is with Prat (which I don't use). Which means its less of a Minimalist or Prat problem than a Rep2 problem.
Secondly this error only started happening after the Rep2 changes made by Tawerner on Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 (r56704 & r56984). The latest commit r57276 by Durcyn didn't fix the problem (it was a minor one line change); its with r56276 that my last error with Minimalist occurred. The last Minimalist upgrade was on Nov. 23; gained a rep level with r47342 prior to the Dec.7 Rep2 code changes and...no errors.
Revert back to Rep2 r47342 (Aug. 24 commit by Durcyn again) and the Minimalist errors stop occurring on rep level increases or regular rep gains. So someone needs to look over the r56704/r56984 code changes and fix the problems they create with other mods.
