    posted a message on AudioX II 3.2.22 MIA
    Re: Clashing names I agree. In the past the file has been called AudioX-Readme.txt, but in the original 3.2.22 I forgot to prepend AudioX- so tbh "fair cop, guv". :p

    That said, it might be useful if automated updaters offered some way for mod authors to convey important update information to players.

    One way to do this would be to extract all readme.txt , important.txt, notice.txt instances to Updater\Cache\<modname>-readme.txt instead of Interface\Addons, then present a single page of links to each readme at the end of the update process so that players can choose to read them or not. To stop malware posing as a readme, each file could be filtered for non-visible ASCII characters / undesireable markup tags as they are extracted.

    It's just a thought :)

    I uploaded AudioX II 3.2.22 last night. I left it sitting in the queue waiting for approval and happily went to bed. 11 hours later, the uploaded archive is neither in the approval queue nor available for downloading. I've tried uploading the archive again, but curseforge won't allow me to upload the same file twice.

    I've checked my private messages. Nada.

    Has the archive dropped off the queue, been deleted or something else?

    Any thoughts? :)

    Edit: Found email explaining rejection reasons (was readme.txt at toplevel - which is odd, cos the point of a readme is that it should be seen and read). Will repackage and upload shortly.

    I've only recently started writing mods and one resource I've found incredibly useful was the book World of Warcraft Programming by Whitehead, McLemore and Orlando. It introduces LUA and the API gradually, building towards a series of example projects.

    The book in no way diminishes the usefulness of various online sites. It complements them, and helps iron out the learning curve a bit. I believe a second edition is under way.

    I tried to update AudioX II 7 hours or so ago. Everything looked fine on curseforge.com. Anyway, about an hour ago I visited the AudioX page at curse.com only to find the page was gone, replaced by:

    Post Not Found

    The post you requested cannot be found or no longer exists. The administrator or moderator may have deleted the post.


    I'm puzzled why this should be the case, given that the previous AudioX II zip was displaying fine on curse about 8 hours ago.

    I checked the curseforge FAQ. That suggested I check my emails to find a reason for the deletion. No email in my email account. Nothing in the PM inboxes of my curseforge or curse accounts either.

    And I honestly haven't any idea why it would be deleted, given that the material is my own work and contains nothing but lua, xml, toc and a single text file.


    In an attempt to get a moderator to look at AudioX again, I decided to remove AudioX2-3.2.14.zip from my project files list (on curseforge) and then upload the file again. It looks like AudioX2-3.2.14.zip is still in the moderation queue as I'm unable to upload the file again (as it's "Already uploaded"), which begs the question: What is going on? *blink*

    Anyway, I hope the problem can be resolved shortly.
