    Awesome! Many thanks.
    I knew there had to be a better way to do it.

    posted a message on Detecting Raid / Group Member Deaths Help
    I am new to the development side of things and have been trying to work on a small addon and I am not 100% sure what the best way to go about doing this part is.

    I would like to detect when a group / raid member has died.
    I tried using the COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED and watching for the type UNIT_DIED however if I am to far away I dont see the log messages and this method isnt really a solid solution for me.

    So is there a better event to monitor to detect this? I guess someone who has developed Unit Frames has a good idea of what I am looking to do here. Should I just go about an OnUpdate and have a polling interval just scan every X interval? If so what affects would I expect to see doing such a poll say every 1/2 second? Would it affect performance?

    I made a few changes, the source which was affected is attached.

    I personally want to give you a big thanks here.
    I have been a Unix programmer for years and recently was required to do some applications in .NET

    I have no desire to make a WAU or any similar product however I was able to reverse engineer some things in your application which allowed me to move forward in mine being 100% new to .NET

    People really dont understand how awesome the Open Source community is. It allows people to create "The Better Mouse Trap" as well as allows people like me to use your code as a tutorial / classroom. I was able to figure out some thread issues where I had threads stepping on each other and using the WUA which I knew was multithreaded and used sockets was in essence what I was trying to produce.

    Many thanks for providing us this application let alone access to the source code many Kudos to you and those who assisted you on this project.

    build 726 does the following:

    1) Fixes the "browse" button not setting the WoW path on the preferences menu
    2) Adds a WoW installs menu, if you have more than one location on your machine you can switch quickly between them
    3) Adds an error message for vista users who have incorrect permissions on their addon folder.
    4) Repairs the TOC detection xreference with wdn.wowinterface.com, though thier data is currently not correct
    5) To address the issue with the ad's, i added code to remove all the <script> tag contents from html which is rendered in the embedded browser.
    Also, i added logging to save the html from the ad pages - so we can have more informative reporting.

    I noticed I have Lines through addon names on the main screen now. What are these and what do they mean? It looks like an indicator for an Out dated addon however they arent really outdated addons, Prat, Cartographer, Omen all show these and they are very active projects.

    posted a message on Talent Addon Idea
    So I came across this addon back in the 1.x days that displayed the Talent Tree fully expanded. So you could see all the trees at once as well as run a planned vs. spent points overlay (Similar to blizzards website). It was called SpecialTalent and was part of a pack and I cannot find any information on the original developer.

    99% of the Addons I run are here at WoW Ace so I'm back up and running again but this is the one plugin I lost that I would love to see again.

    Does anyone know of anything similar to this or intrested in a project like this?
