I have a question about using Ace-Hook-3.0, basically to cut a long story short, I need to hook into the functions that are called when someone accepts, abandons or completes a quest, but for this should I use a pre-hook or a post-hook, it mentioned on the getting started page for ace3 these 2, and mentioned about tainting with the pre-hook, vaguely know what tainting is, so am presuming post-hook would be the one I need to use, however if I used this one wont the information I was wanting be gone already ?
i.e. the information I was wanting to log is all I could about the quest, like its name, objectives, description, progresstext, completedtext, levelaccepted, levelcompleted, moneyreward, repreward, itemreward.
p.s. does anyone know how the likes of wowwiki, thottbot, allakhazam get information from the game interface to recreate the tooltips on there respective sites ?
p.p.s I'm looking to re-write the QuestHistory addon from curse.com but with Ace and also put in some added functionality / features as it doesn't do all I would like it to do, plus figured this was a great opportunity to do something have always wanted to do and learn to code lua.

Sorry guess I didn't make it very clear when said Ace3 Libraries, didn't mean the libraries themselves, meant things like "Quixote-1.0", "FuBarPlugin-2.0" and so on.
Nov 28, 2008I am interested in learning some lua and am wanting to write an addon with the ace framework.Posted in: Lua Code Discussion
I have the Ace3 addon and have read through the getting started with Ace.
but I am a little confused as to where to download the libraries from.
I have looked at other addons and can see they have a Libs folder, where do these authors get the files to put in that folder ? I have searched the website and even searched google too and still non the wiser as to where these files can be downloaded from.
Sorry if this is a noob question with an obvious answer.

Oct 24, 2008Hello all,Posted in: AddOn HELP!
First thank you for reading this post.
Second the help i'm after is not so much of a problem so to speak its more of guidance.
I have been wanting to learn to code lua for over a year now and never really took up the challenge of doing so, however I found an awesome addon on wowace called "FuBar_KillMeterFu" and I wanted something that worked exactly the same way but for grinding faction rep instead, so I disected it and looked over it and I do understand how its workout all of what it does I just need a bit of help to code a similar addon focused to rep.
I'm wanting to keep a lot of the nice things of "FuBar_KillMeterFu" but am looking to re-write the addon from the ground up.
What I would like to do is have a menu on right click (which I currently have), and on this menu have a sub menu called "Factions" and a dynamic list of factions that the character knows about so would ideally be whats on there reputation tab of there character profile in game.
I have tried looking at "FuBar_FactionsFu" but I couldn't work out how it did it.
Also once I have the menu I had thought the menu would be clickable, so under each faction would be a sub menu so to speak with 2 options grinding and hand ins, so if someone was both grinding rep on mobs and doing hand ins aswell they would tick both, so it would track rep from both of them with the idea of showing how much rep per hour the person is doing and give a rough idea of how long it will take to the next rep level.
But for now I would like some assistance making the menu with the faction names on it.
I would also like some help/pointing in the right direction to learn more general stuff about writing lua/addons for world of warcraft.
I have bought the following 2 books from UK Amazon :-
World of Warcraft Programming
Hacking World of Warcraft
Sep 16, 2008Posted in: General AddOnsQuote from majikthise »KOTJ stopped working with 2.4.2
Erm are you sure about that ? I'm still using KOTJ in the very latest patch, cause I cant get FM to work on euGB wow without errors all over my screen that I dont know how to fix.
I've attached the version of KOTJ that works fine for me on enGB in the uk without any problems at all.
Aug 26, 2008I have just got the latest version from the svn repo and its complaining about a missing library of LibPeriodicTable-3.1Posted in: General AddOns
This only happens when FeedMachine is the only addon loaded, when I have my other ace addons loaded aswell I get no error and it does show up however, when I do the slash command I get the window and then when I click show config it comes up black and no matter which tab I click on I get another error.
I live in the UK and I am on the european realms if thats any help.
