    If you want an automatic updater, you can get Cosmos, or talk with someone here to get one built-- it wouldn't be too horrible.


    Um. QFT.

    When svn.wowace.com/files first went up, I took a couple hours and wrote a script to automagically update & install my addons using that. It's not only easier, but faster than updating with subversion was. I really fail to see the problem with losing subversion access. :)


    Care to share it? While a chunk of us probably have no issue creating our own script, I'm guessing a larger chunk do. It could almost be a mod in it's own right - a simple script ala curse-gaming where you mark your 'favorites' and it indicates if there is a new zip available.

    If nothing else, it would let this thread die and people could link to the script in their signature to taunt the newbies.

    Here's a suggestion which may or may not be worthwhile:

    An option to have an 'Autobar' sprocket. For example, I could assign a button to be 'food' or 'mana potion' or 'bandage', and triggering it would automatically use the best available item from my inventory.

    Consider Sprocket. I've replaced most of my button bars with it.

    Would be very cool if I could create a sprocket and have it on-screen permanently. Maybe this is already possible, but if so I haven't figured it out after two hours.

    Also, how does one move this around the screen?


    Hmm... the whole point is to not need to have it on-screen. The on-screen solutions are called Necrosis/Necronomicon/Arcanum/Crylosis/Serenity :)

    As for moving it around the screen... The sprocket menu will come up wherever your mouse is. So move your mouse :)

    BRILLIANT!

    I have a feeling this could very quickly and very easily become the one mod I can't live without. On a very brief first pass, this is exactly what I've been hoping to find and seems to function exactly how one would expect it to function. Thank you thank you thank you.

    Though you can't upgrade the server to 1.4.0, you can still use 1.4.0 clients to get some of the added benefit from the reworked working copy improvements. Better than nothing :)

    I typically come to the forums to see what new addons are available - many times there will be new things in categories I didn't even know I needed. With the new layout, I'd have to browse umpteen different subforums to get any concept of what's really new. And as others have said, some mods cross category boundaries and will get lost by being miscategorized. If you keep up with the forums every few days or so, there aren't that many pages to review for updates. +1 for the old layout.

    SimpleMiniMap (curse-gaming, non-ace) can do the corner minimap style. I believe there is also a 'CornerMiniMap' mod that does the same.

    A matching FuBar texture would be quite slick.... or so I think.

    Any chance of hooks into phpRaid?

    These are hardly 'high priority' requests, but PerfectRaid recently added a /perfectraid inverse and a /perfectraid border set of options. These are absolutely wonderful features. The border for the 'look', and the inverse for the playability. Since it might be as simple as cut&paste from PR... ;)

    Thanks maia... I should have looked myself before asking. It was painfully easy to fix up. Someday I'll look at adding it as a proper option and submitting a patch for stick in up in a branch in the repository.

    Any hints on where in the code to explore having the bars 'fill' with damage rather than 'drain'? Don't mind hardcoding it myself, just haven't taken a deep look yet at how to go about it.

    While that's probably true, that's a shame. I took a look at the thread, and between Tekkub, Cladhaire, and Satrina, not much more needs to be said discussion-wise. Yet without additional folks to /sign or /bump the thread, it gets lost in the clutter quickly. Is it truly better to let the thread fall the page 5 than do a +1 to show support of the idea?

    Not a flame, just a real curiosity. Even professional development forums will use the "+1" system to indicate that they are in support of an idea when no more discussion needs to happen.

    Don't disable _all_ other unit frames. Makes it hard to access the right-click menu to trade/follow/leave party/whatever. Not that I speak from experience or anything.
