    Sounds like you need AlarBGHelper. It does even more than that.


    Thanks for the idea, but I have already tried AlarBGHelper a few times, the most recent being within the last week or so.

    On my setup the mod throws a number of lua errors.

    Also, I find the UI ridiculously large (it occupies roughly 1/3rd of my screen - I run larger that 1280x960 with UI scaling down to the smallest setting, but forget the exact res in WoW and cannot check atm as the servers are offline). While it is true this full size UI minimises to a toolbar, the toolbar is still very large and randomly maximises back to full size. PvP Messages UI was only roughly 150 pixels across and allows itself to be scaled even smaller if that is your taste.

    If it is possible to permanently shrink the scale of the Alar mod I never found out how, as the random resizing and errors were too frustrating and I ended up deleting it. The version I used had a resizing handle at the bottom right (I think) but if you used it the mod reset itself to full size almost immediately.

    I see from following your link that it has been updated again and so I will have another look as soon as the EU servers are back online. From the comments in the thread it would appear that the problems I experienced are still around however.

    My feeling is that the author is trying to do too much without getting some fundamentals right first.

    For me this would be:

    1: A reasonably sized and dependable UI, preferably with scaling options but I could live without this if the basic UI was smaller in the first place.
    2: Good chat reporting capability (various locations, attack/defend options as well as flag locations etc.

    Reports of boss health, "cap the flag now" etc. just seem to be icing that is not needed if the basics don't function properly.

    Don't get me wrong here. I respect the guys that write this stuff. There are some really excellent mods out there but this mod, as I have experienced it, just isn't for me.

    Maybe it is time to get know lua? It is just that spending 6+ weeks getting to know a new language/API and code a mod seems a bit of overkill when folks out there can already code. :)

    How about an ACE version?

    http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7373-PvPMessages.html

    Primarily I miss the ability to click a button to say "The flag carrier has left via X" or "Location X is under attack, please help!".

    While it is true that I could make macros to say some of these things there are so many possibilities that a clickable UI seems more efficient. The UI was also great help as it could be clicked during GCD and hopefully the rest of the team would then come and assist. Due to tooltips on mouseover it also meant that I didn't have to remember another score of keybindings that were only useful on battlegrounds.

    If a new version was made and the buttons could also be bound to keys that would, of course, be awesome! :)

    Sadly I lack the knowledge of lua to code this myself, else I would. I miss it dearly.

    odd, its using blizzards own api now, it shouldnt get that at all.

    is it repeatable? or only after you log/zone?
    do you have any special/weird ammo or anything?
    did you have an empty ammo bag in your normal inventory?
    do you use the english client?
    It is repeatable. It happens every time and has been doing so for about ten days now. Logging/zoning doesn't seem to be a factor. No weird ammo as the hunter I get this on is only level 29. It might be a second bag issue as I have a level 30 bag in inventory and I will therefore check this out (I will bank the second bag). Yes, my client is English.

    One factor I only recently noticed is that I only get this on my Horde hunter, but not on my Alliance one. I will check the 2nd bag in inventory issue and post back here.

    Thanks for your reply.

    EDIT: OK, I checked into my Horde hunter after updating my mods and the problem has gone as mysteriously as it arrived. Looks like it wasn't anything to do with your mod (as your mod wasn't part of the update) but rather something else interfering with it in some way. I didn't even get as far as removing the other bag as I wanted to verify the error was still there...

    Oh well, all is good in the land of Wow again.

    Thank you for your time.

    Sorry for the false alarm. :)

    Ok, I found out what the problem was, sorry. :) My hunter has every skill learnt so there's times when I have trouble testing. :)

    Also updated those two LW patterns... Wowdb states they're at 305 still.

    I'll look into compatibility with Gazmik Fizzwidget's Hunter's Helper.
    Thanks once again Ackis. :)

    That's what I thought... I'm testing it right now w/ my hunter and I'm not getting any errors. Are you using the latest and greatest version?
    Yeah, I update daily as I like to see the addons develop over time. Libraries disembedded.

    Tried on my ally hunter and my horde toon to see if there was any difference as they know different skills. Both toons throw errors when I try and open a skill to see where/which beast it is trainable from.

    I just checked to see if I had the current version by running the updater, I do. If I click on Lightning Breath (rank1) I get:

    [2008/05/12 01:00:11-2474-x1]: AckisRecipeList-0.86\ARLFrame.lua:190: attempt to concatenate field 'Acquire' (a nil value)


    and

    [2008/05/12 01:00:11-2474-x1]: AckisRecipeList-0.86\ARLFrame.lua:64: attempt to concatenate field 'Acquire' (a nil value)


    Which as you can see is a different line number, but lists as the same field/variable error.

    EDIT: Just read the post by Chmee and had a thought. Hunters Helper took over my training window too and so I disabled it, but didn't delete it. Will do some deletions etc. and see if the problem goes away.

    Thanks for a quick response. The mod now opens and lists all skills etc just fine.

    But! :)

    If I click on any of the skills in the list I get the following error:

    [2008/05/11 20:13:47-2471-x6]: AckisRecipeList-0.86\ARLFrame.lua:190: attempt to concatenate field 'Acquire' (a nil value)


    Hope this helps.

    Hi, I am experiencing the bag position moving thing and am really pleased to see it will soon be fixed.

    Thank you for your work on this addon. I appreciate your effort and have been using this addon happily for months.

    However, on my hunter if I auto rearrange my inventory (the red icon) to fill the empty spaces in my ammo bag I get an error that tells me you can't place that in there. This function always used to work fine and has only stopped working recently (a week?). Sorry I can't give more information but there is no error that bugsack catches or anything like that for me to post.

    Opening the mod for beast training on a hunter gives me this error:

    The addon was working fine about a week to ten days ago, sorry that I cant tell you which update changed this.

    Thanks for your work on this addon, even though I am reporting a bug! :)

    posted a message on MagicMarker - Raid Icon Marking made simple
    First of all, many thanks for the time you have put into this addon. I like it a lot.

    But... (there always is a but, isn't there? :) )

    After a recent update it has ceased to work for me. The error I am getting is:

    [2008/03/29 11:39:47-2224-x1]: MagicMarker-1.0 r66304\MagicMarker.lua:36: attempt to call method 'EmbedLogger' (a nil value)


    and

    [2008/03/29 11:39:47-2224-x1]: MagicMarker-1.0 r66304\Config.lua:196: bad argument #1 to 'pairs' (table expected, got nil)
    MagicMarker-1.0 r66304\Config.lua:196: in main chunk


    Hope this helps. Not sure if it is something I have done or not done. If you could shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

    I am running MagicComm btw.

    Thanks for your time.

    Don't know if this helps, but a none ACE addon that does this is AKA. It will also show other users of the mod your tradeskills and a complete list of alts.

    I would just like to post to say that I love this mod. Thank you very much for updating it for the new patch.

    This mod keeps me playing WoW, as at one stage the amount of spam I was getting was totally ridiculous (don't make a toon with a name at the beginning or end of the alphabet, especially on a new server!).

    Now if we could just get similar for all the beggars... :)

    posted a message on Chat mod to play sound on a word?
    Hmmm.

    The pop ups are silent for me and there is no obvious way of enabling sounds for them. Channel sounds work ok though, just not for the pop up. Maybe another mod is interfering with the sounds? I will do some reloading and check it out.

    Thanks
