    *removed - misread thought was only case of using the libraries not intentionally use of the license (haven't seen the code)

    This isn't really a good example of OSS at all. The guy is mad because of the crash bug and taking his anger a bit far is all. Even if it wasn't open source, he could still be ripping it apart and redistributing it.

    WAU is afaik the only updater that is official and helps to support WoW Ace with the ads. It's kind of sad that the ads (and the method to protect them - ie moving away from the standalone exe) have hurt the stability for alot of people using Vista. I really like the application and I know alot of hardwork when into it. Be nice to just see any comment at all from Kael about the future of updaters for WoW Ace.

    How is any of this productive to the problem? It is getting ugly because it seems this problem has been waiting for Kael to make a decision he is never going to make.

    Either trust people to help find the bug or remove the ads...else people will reverse engineer it and remove the ads. Everyone wants to help here I think - just this been going on for a long time now with no comment whatsoever other than "wait for Kael."

    While what he is doing is a bit of a jerk move, I'm not sure what else was expected with no feedback on the problem from Kael (despite fact it has been said multiple times it was his call on the ads).

    I thought it was hosted in the SVN here at WoW Ace? Anyone can sign up for an account and view it right? What kind of info do you want from the people with the problem? I have looked at it enough that I'm quite sure I'm not going to figure it out without having the source (which would involve installing tools on my home machine as my work laptop isn't Vista -- I just need to find the time and most likely will over the holidays). The misdirection on the ads really prevents most debugging with the log (and honestly it seems to me to be a timing issue and not a problem with a single ad). When I offered to look at it, I wasn't planning to take out the ads for myself or anyway -- I'd much rather it was fixed. I am disappointed that Kael seems unwilling to comment on the situation. Seriously...I would think most people would choose the stability of the program with an increased donation request till the problem was solved (for example replace the ad with a simple link to remind people to donate because of the bandwidth or hell a link to a page that would allow viewing of the ads).

    Sorry if that came out wrong - wasn't my intent to call out a lack of coding effort at all as I understand that this is all done volunteer and on your own time.

    My intent was to get someone to fix the political problem of disabling the ads (which are causing the crashes) until the coding effort could happen. It is especially frustrating since someone is finding time to add more bugged ads thus bypassing the workarounds.

    It's really hard to recommend this to others right now because of these problems - sure there is a work around but for the non-techy it isn't that easy. It's a great program and painful to see it suffer for something silly like this.

    Anyway...is WAU in the SVN? If so, might finally be time (now that work has calmed down) to unlazy myself and get an account. Least gives me a target since I can't come up for a mod idea I like that hasn't been done.

    Guess yall added more ads cause you certainly added more bugged ones that crash my system that I have to go in and block.

    Please add a way to stop the ads until you fix this problem.

    posted a message on Tattle - Who is doing the updates into the SVN?
    Whoever is doing this (I tried to PM Ominous but he doesn't seem to be answering) can you please add the realm Kirin Tor to US Battlegroup Rampage? It is missing and causes an error because of it.

    In all honestly I can try and try to load inside WAU and none of the ads load anymore on Vista. For a while some loaded but lately none of them do (though admittedly the random isn't that great so might just be bad luck).

    Hmm..the logfile used to show the external website when it crashed so I blocked them all that would crash. Guess just now one of the ads on wowace is crashing me. Found a way to block it so not crashing now at least.

    It's alot of the ads that do it. Makes the error kind of random. Now some of the ads are at files.wowace.com/ads.html

    Okay by moving the Ads to files.wowace.com/ads.html you have pretty much made it unusable to me. The ads seem to often crash windows and the only fix was to block via the hosts file. Now I have no way to stop it.

    I have no problem with the ads as a way to support the bandwidth but sticking to them when they are obviously damaging the applications real purpose is upsetting.

    Before it crashed right away (basically it still crashes as soon as it tries to load the ad - you just moved where the crash occured by making the ad load later).

    Ok, i open the ad at the end of the addon list refresh process. Does this make any improvement for anyone?

    EDIT: I ended up making a few other changes related to startup time activity (yikes)


    No. Now it loads the list of addons then crashes.

    posted a message on US / EU BattleGround Updates for Tattle / Gladiator
    It has been happening for about 4 weeks now (at first I thought it was the other bug till I realized it was always the same realm). Possible something is wrong with how the data file is being created? Right now I just get the datafiles with Tattle updates. Is there a better way?
