    Adamar, can you give us any overview as to how the UIWizard feature is going to work?


    It is already working- you can try it now :)

    The UI Wizard offers a convenient way to package up a bunch of addons, and share them with the community in the form of CCIP (Curse Client Install Package) files.

    Okay, sat down and just spent 20 minutes or so trying to put together a review. Let me know which of these things you'd like me to file a ticket/bug report on.


    If there is something very specific that someone else has not filed a ticket for, please feel free to do so here: http://www.curseforge.com/projects/curse-client-v4-windows/tickets/

    Remembering back to when I installed CC v3, you're probably right that more addons are recognized by v4. I basically reinstalled all my addons when I (hangs head) dropkicked the evil Keanu Reeves installer. I PM'ed you my current addons.


    I will be investigating your entire addon folder this afternoon.

    Spending more time with v4 today, I now realize that the addons v4 didn't think had updates were set to use Release, while v3 is set for beta or alpha versions. That'd explain that complaint. Sorry!


    That does indeed explain it. Before v4 is released, we will be adding a very simple (and skippable) setup wizard / feature tour that opens upon first run of the client. This should help avoid use-issues such as the one you experienced.

    The bad:

    Having the option to confirm an addon without the client re-installing it would be really nice. I don't remember if CCv3 did this or not.


    I will be working on this at some point, before release.

    Quote from Tirdal

    Listing and opening installation folders is something v3 does which I couldn't find in v4. This is very important to me.


    This is coming soon.

    Quote from Tirdal

    Listing unidentified addons is also a crucial feature.


    This is also coming soon.

    Quote from Tirdal

    The ability to change preferred type (alpha/beta/release) of all addons would be really nice.


    You can do this by either right clicking the game in the sidebar and selecting Options, or selecting the Options from the Tools menu and clicking the Games tab. Just set your preferred type, and click Reset All.

    What's the "AddonSync" button? Does it find and preserve my modifications while updating the addon? That's probably too much to wish for, hunh? :)


    AddonSync in its first version is intentionally simple to setup and use. It will currently only synchronize the addons you have installed between two or more computers (or two ore more installs of WoW, on the same computer). In the future, we may consider syncing modifications, but that is a level of complexity we're not comfortable adding for this release.

    Thanks very much for the constructive feedback. I am confident that the items you listed in "The Bad" will be resolved soon.

    Just figured I'd mention my experience with the v4 beta. I realize that I should file tickets for all of these issues, but I got too frustrated after only 5 minutes with it that I uninstalled it.

    First, many of my installed addons, which v3 manages for me and are on Curse, did not show up in v4.

    Second, only 2 of the 5 addons I've customized showed up as customized, and my only two options were to reinstall/"update" to the current Curse version, or set the addon to Ignored. I don't want any of these to be ignored, I want them to tell me when there's an update. For example, many of Tekkub's addons are designed for options to be set by mucking with the code.

    v3 had 2 updates for me, while v4 didn't find those updates.


    Can you prepare a dropbox or rapidshare zip of your addons, and PM me a link to download it? If anything, v4 should provide far more accurate addon identification than v3.

    While the concept of skinning is nice, it'd be nice to have a "no skin" option. Just look like a standard windows app, dangit.


    As of version 4.0.0.607, you can enable a standard Windows Aero theme.

    Quote from Tirdal

    So, yeah, after about 5 minutes of this, and not finding any options that might help, I tossed it out the window, feeling like it's alpha quality with a whole LOT of missing features, rather than beta quality.


    What features do you feel are missing? With the exception of the Saved Variables cleaner, v4 has every feature that v3 has, and more.

    2.1.3.0 changed from the expected behaviour of opening the system default browser when clicking links in the Info panel, to opening Internet Explorer.
    This did not happen in any previous version that I can recall.

    Running Windows 7 x64 build 7000, my default browser is Firefox.


    Nothing has been changed regarding this, I assure you. We use an abstracted call to process all hyperlinks.

    Here is the code:

    void AddonInfoPanel::OnLink ( wxHtmlLinkEvent & event )
    {
    if (event.GetLinkInfo().GetHref().StartsWith(wxT("http://")))
    wxLaunchDefaultBrowser(event.GetLinkInfo().GetHref());

    wxLaunchDefaultBrowser is a function of wxWidgets, the UI framework we use.

    I am attempting to reproduce and correct this crash error.

    Hi all,

    Today we will be releasing version 2.1.2.5 of the client. I've tracked down a number of issues, including:


    1. Client launches, and displays a blank window. Confirmed fixed.
    2. Client launches, and after the "Scanning Local Directories" it stalls on "Building Addon List". Confirmed fixed.
    3. Attempting to login produces the message: "An unknown error occurred contacting the server". This fix is not 100% confirmed, but it is related the fix for #2.

    It is faster, I did notice that today, but I still have to look at that annoying little box every hour :) It took a long time, but it's really gotten to me...things living in the systray shouldn't pop up boxes that don't require user input, IMHO.


    I've taken note of this, as it has been reported by several users. I'm going to change the behavior of the systray alerts so that they don't appear for the hourly scans, unless the client window is open.
