Ok, I'm seeing lots of threads for mod developers and programmers here regarding the buyout by Curse or whatever you want to call the "merger".
On behalf of us laypeople who just want a place to be able to download and update the mods we use, would somebody please breakdown for us how we are supposed to accomplish this with the removal of WoWAceUpdater and the impending removal of files.wowace.com?
I personally use A LOT of mods that I have always gotten from WoWAce. I used the updater daily to keep them all up the date with the latest versions. I have downloaded the Curse updater and it scanned for all my mods, but didn't pick all of them up. Additionally some of them had multiple (dead) versions on Curse, so I was forced to pick one that I thought was the correct one. It also rarely shows updates available, but when I spot-check on files.wowace.com, I see the addons were updated within the past week. This leads me to conclude that the Curse client is worthless as an updater.
Again, would somebody please breakdown the solutions to these issues for the rest of us?
