Re: Rank Setting

I think it is exactly the other way around:



  1. Only Critical quest lines

  2. Everything except group or silly quests

  3. You want Loremaster and/or are OCD

 

Addon? Date?

The addon page says it will be updated on the 5th of Sept and its hte 12th now.  Typo or it just hasn't happened?

Guide

I have downloaded the newest update multiple times from Wow-pro.com, but in game the guide is telling me I am using a trial version and need to download the guide on your site to get more guides......I'm lost   0.o     I downloaded it here......

Emmaleah's picture

Wow-pro trial?

The only possible things I can think of that would behave as you have described are:

1) you didnt delete the trial directory first so something is still left from the trial version.

2) you managed to download the trial version from here (the big yellow download button is linked to the correct version, but Im sure the trial is available somewhere.  Did you download from http://wow-pro.com/addon ? click the big yellow download button that says v 2.3.1 right below it.

3) you have more than one installed version of wow, and you are downloading the correct version of wow-pro into a version of wow that is not the one you are playing.

I imagine there are other possibilities, but those are what come to mind.

Wow-pro trial?

   Thank you so much for your help. I did indeed have 2 WoW folders, deleted the one that obviously wasn't correct. Also, I didn't delete the trial version, so now it is working correctly!!!  I deeply appreciate the walkthrough on the fix  :)

yeah   we want to know why it

yeah   we want to know why it hasnt been updated yet ive been having issues with the gps part of wow pro

Re: yeah we want to know why it

Sorry about not updating the front page with the next expected date for updates.

There were a few bugs that I was tracking down that took longer to fix than I anticipated.

I'll cut a release today (9/15).

Typo in Uldum Guide

Re: Typo in Uldum Guide

Fixed.

Keep it up!!!

As a long time user of James' guides I just got back to WOW after a 3 year hiatus and found the addon to be great... I could be biased because when I left the game I was the Guildmaster of "Disciples of Jame" (which I gave up while I was gone)... I realized that I had never told you how great of a job you are doing... Keep it up...

minor error

I know this is little, but you have the year wrong(2011) in the Last updated information above.

Tomtom & Carbonite won't work

I can't get TomTom or Carbonite to work, no matter what.

Yes i installed them correctly, yes i tried re rer er erererererere re and re download and reinstalling them, no results, they simply don't get installed, doesn't show up ingame and Wow-pro even notifies me that i don't have either of them installed.

Shouldn't have anything to do with todays patch either, as they didn't work yesterday before the patch..

What do?

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Tomtom & Carbonite won't work

Well, the easy answer is that they can't be installed correctly.

Is there a folder called "TomTom" right next to the folder called "WoWPro" in the Addons directory?

What does your <WOW INSTALL DIRECTORY>/Logs/FrameXML.log file say?

 

 

Well, yeah, i just threw it

Carbonite/TomTom not working

Check that they extracted/installed correctly and you didn't gain an extra folder.

They should look something like this .../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/TomTom/TomTom files (eg .lua .toc etc etc).

If you have an extra folder in there like .../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/TomTom/TomTom/TomTom files, the game client can't see the toc file (as it's located 1 folder further down the chain) and hence won't load the addon.

Also depending on your operating system, and when, how and where you installed the game you could have 2 addon directories (Windows Vista/7) especially if you upgraded from Windows XP after WoW was installed.

No extra folders I'm running

Feature request

Not being a dev or knowing much about how to get into the inner workings I have NO CLUE if this is possible.  I would however find it ever so handy. 

I wish there was a button that could be added to the WOW-Pro guide frame either at the top , (beside the one telling us to train) or beside the individual quest (preferred- but I expect more difficult -- where the "use" item is) that would show up whenever a quest is turned into your UI.  I am all the time missing turning those in, so I have to keep my blizzard quest log open so I can notice them. which takes up too much screen real estate. 

It doesnt help that I prefer questguru's quest log and they have this minimilist approach (which I LIKE in every other aspect) so that there is a faintly flashing grey line over any quest that turns in, to a UI Alert., when I am using it it is almost impossible to notice)  But it is a problem with the default UI too, because that just takes up WAY too much space.

I would prefer to be able to use WoW Pro INSTEAD of a quest log instead of in addition to a quest log.  Maybe just a key binding that opened the quest log  (oh wait.. isnt that the L key --- thats not what I mean) to the particular quest that you need to turn in (i.e. the page with "complete quest" button on it.)

Editted to add another one that I think would be useful.

A differant non combat tag, the existing NC with the gear and another one, for chat, that would put the little chat img at the beginning of the step,  We get a LOT of quests in MOP that have up go talk to "soandso" (totally unrelated aside...remember the original EQ tutorial?).  I was looking thru the list of tags and C is available as it appears you can use tags that are also in use as same letter T = turn in at the beginning of the line but |T| = target, so... C ought to work?

error with WoW Pro Addon in MoP Beta

Hello,

ive been trying out the WoW Pro addon on MoP Beta. My first quick test showed, it works ok so far.

I got the following error: WoWPro: Zone [Valley of the Four Winds] not found. Using map id 807

Will this error cause any trouble with the addon or the recorder ?

Can it be fixed and how ?

sincerly

Partaxis

 

Emmaleah's picture

This is because the list of

This is because the list of zones hasn't been updated.  It doesnt affect how the addon works, other than you get an error message in your chat the first time it reads each step that has a zone name it doenst know (i.e. all of them). 

 I dont know where its coming from.  I re re-downloaded TomTom, making sure the libmapdata file included MOP info (from Ace).  I edited the wowpro-mapping.lua file to add in one zone, to see if that would change anything, it didn't.  But... the program seems to work fine as long as you dont want to put any waypoints outside of the current zone.  ( a problem in the Krasarang guide I made as well as Kun-Lei)

Error in Guide list in latest MoP Beta Patch

Hello,

I would like to help test the guides and correct them, but the Addon doesnt work properly.

With the latest MoP Beta Patch the Guide list suddenly shows a TAB called Leveling and you cant choose anymore between neutral, horde, alliance. It seems to be set to neutral and not even show the TAB as neutral.

I am kind of disappointed, cause it seems deserted here on the forums and no reaction from Ludovicus Major either.

I like this Addon and it needs an update soon, cause the Beta wont last many more days.

 

 

 

Emmaleah's picture

For me anyway, it has shown

For me anyway, it has shown blank, until you click on the tab.  I believe this was a fix to when they originally added the tabs they would bleed thru and you would see ALL the guides listed (one on top of the other, i.e. unreadable), Now, the tabs are blank until you actually click on them, then the list shows up. (for whatever tab you chose)

@Emmaleah My point was that i

@Emmaleah

My point was that i click on the tab called "leveling" and i dont see neutral, horde, alliance anymore.

This changed like 3-4 patches ago. It was fine before that.

I went AWOL from WoW for a

I went AWOL from WoW for a little bit and lost most of what little knowledge I had of it, but I remember using a quest addon to help out. I checked out Curse and saw Quest Helper and thought that was what I used. With it, I became frustrated, annoyed, and finally just gave p using it because it wasn't up to date and most markers simply were not there. Then I finally figured out it was this addon, the WoW-Pro Quest addon that I had used in the past. I am so thankful you guys are still on it and working hard, and I want to let you all know how great your work is. It's made questing not only easy, but fun, professional, and very educational in terms of the quirks of the game. This addon is a MUST have, and belongs to a Hall of Fame of WoW addons. Thank you all again for your work!

A little buggy at times

This addon is extremely helpful. However, some steps won't auto-complete (travel steps for example) which wouldn't be a problem except sometimes the step checkbox is not clickable. Not at all. I spend forever hovering over and no tooltip appears. I click like a madman and it doesn't progress. The only way to check off that step then would be to open the current guide and manually check off the step that way which is extremely counter-productive.

I don't know whether this is a known bug but as the addon hasn't received an update yet I'm guessing not.

 

As I side note I use the addon alongside Carbonite and they work together fantastically. A great combination!

iv tryed to downlaod this and

iv tryed to downlaod this and when i used my curse client it says the guide is a 2.1.26 trial version how the i ge tthe 2.2.5 version that iv downaleded 3 times from here? also the guide is skipping steps it has done it twice for me so far once in Ashenvale now once in desloace it skipped 3 parts to kill naga to get the satchel then hearth back and turn in

Curse Update

Don't use curse to update it after you download it from here.  Curse only contsains the trial version.

i never did i had my curse

i never did i had my curse just fully ignored the update so it wont update or tell me but ya iv seen over 7 steps skipped so far in the guide 1 in ashenvale and 6 in desolace whats with this? and i swear the captcha is bugging the heck out of me

Midsummer Fire Festival (Alliance) Error

Step # 65: asks you to go to ratchet but it sends you to Echo Isles... the correct location is Northern Barrens 70, 73

That would be because the

That would be because the syntax of the guide is wrong for that waypoint, resulting in an attempt to send you to the area "Midsummer Fire Festival", and since that zone does not exist, it's using the current area, which in your case would have been Durotar, I guess...

Midsummer Festival Guide (Addon Version)

Step #21 has you go and buy Juggling Torches x20. However the location it sends you to doesn't have a Midsummer supplier, instead there is nothing here. The location should be changed to Darnassus (61, 48).

In the works ... Wow-Pro + Grail.

I have been experimenting with an integration between Wow-Pro and Grail.

I was able to use it successfully to pick a quest I wanted to complete and the program chose all the prerequisite quests automatically!

Useful for twinks or when you only care about a particular quest item.

 

Estelyen's picture

Grail

For those that (like me ;) ) do not know what the hell Grail is, it's a database of quests in WoW that could possibly made to communicate with WoWPro about what quests are still missing to get a specific one (if I understand that correctly :P)

Link on Curse: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/grail

Question though: Does that mean that future versions of WoWPro will be packed together with or dependent on Grail or will that just be an optional possibility for those that want the feature? Because I think a database of all quests in WoW would be quite huge (haven't tested grail though, so sorry if I'm mistaken) and people with slower computers might run into trouble.

~Garfield

Ludovicus's picture

Cooperation with Grail, not dependency

It will be an optional possibility.  

If Grail is installed alongside WoW-Pro:

  • We could enable quest-line selection
  • We could enable NPC and quest name localization
  • We could more accurately flag quest prerequisites, dependencies and level limits

The quest parsing logic can see if Grail is active and then use the DB in Grail to "fill in the blanks" and edit the strings as appropriate.

But we would not require Grail.

Estelyen's picture

Ah I see... Now that I think

Ah I see... Now that I think about what you said in your first post again I realize you were talking about getting a specific piece of gear as a quest reward ("quest item" like you phrased it made me stupidly think only about those "special" items like the companion pets you rarely get for quests... Didn't about the usual quest rewards at all, my bad :P ).

Also, localization is something I would really like, I could finally persuade those guildmates of mine that refuse to use any english addons to try WoWPro (playing on a german server but using an english WoW Client myself, as I think the german localization of the game is nothing short of a catastrophe since BC, where they decided to "translate" names of people and places... makes me puke :x )

And finally, you're right, the guide logic could really benefit from it... Kind of makes the latest changes you made to the code kind of obsolete since I think Grail could do all that a lot better, doesn't it?

Life isn't like a box of chocolates, it's more like a jar of jalapeños: What you do today might burn your a** tomorrow.

~Garfield

Estelyen, If you are a German

Estelyen,

If you are a German speaker, would you have any interest in helping to localize my frontend to the Grail database, Wholly?  Also, there are some German NPCs that I do not have localized in Grail yet, and if any of your friends who run with a deDE client are interested, they can help give me the localized NPC data.  Basically they would need to have the latest version of Grail installed.  And then they would do the slash command "/grail verifynpcs" which would write any NPCs they encountered (that are quest related) that I do not have localized into a saved variables file that could be sent to me.

Estelyen's picture

I could of course ask some

I could of course ask some friends of mine if they were willing to do that for you, but as I said before, I'm using the english client myself. I don't even have a german language pack installed, so I won't be of much help there... I'll ask around in my guild and friends list, but I don't think there's anyone interested in doing actual work for a game :P I'll give you a call when I do meet someone interested though.

Life isn't like a box of chocolates, it's more like a jar of jalapeños: What you do today might burn your a** tomorrow.

~Garfield

Work?  Haha.  It really is

Work?  Haha.  It really is simple.

(1) Download and install Grail.

(2) Type "/grail verifynpcs" (which will take a couple minutes but you can still play)

(3) After logging out or reloading the UI, post the saved variables file <WoW foder>/WTF/Account/<account name>/SavedVariables/Grail.lua to a new forum at http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/grail/forum/ or mail me here.

I know you mentioned you do not play in deDE client, and that is why I phrased my request like I did.  If you are a German speaker it would be great if you could review the current German localization, but it is not necessary.  If any of your friends wants to test out the German localization I have a prerelease page which has the versions in German at http://ns1.mithrandir.com/WorldOfWarcraft/WhollyGrailPrerelease.shtml and I will be updating that with some recent changes, probably today.  Thank you for any efforts you make in getting your friends to help.  Do not worry about it at all, as there are only about 128 NPCs for the German client that are not localized.  It is just a little more difficult for me to get to them, and those playing in deDE client all the time probably have a better chance of encountering them (especially during WoW holidays).

Release 2.2.3 here!

A new release is availible here.

I can not seem to update the main page or add a blog posting.

Big Changes:

  1. Added Argen Dawn, Crusade and an Alliance Night Elf Tournament (yea, it needs some work) guides
  2. Fixed a bug when reseting a guide by shift clicking in the guide list panel
  3. Added Valiance Expedition Guide and Ebon Blade Guide
  4. Fixed a crash in the Dalies module where the guide used a LEAD tag
  5. Changed the displayed name of the guide from the default zone, to the name, if the guide has it.

There is a bug I am tracking down where if you complete a quest with the addon not enabled, it may not be properly marked as completed.

Cheers!

Thanks for the hard work

I am returning to wow after 3 years away, and one of the first things I did was make sure that the Jame guides were still around. So glad to see this alive and kicking!

Now for the issue :)

I started a Tauren Druid, so this pertains to the Mulgore guide. I can't remember the actual step numbers, but it points you to pick up the quest Thunderhorn Cleansing, and a bit later there is a step to turn it in. However, there was no step that actually pointed you to the well to perform the cleansing. I had to run back and do it when I realized it was telling me to turn in an unfinished quest. Not a huge deal, but the runback was kind of tedious.

Gylin's picture

Thunderhorn Cleansing

Hmmm had some others report this bug as well in the past, yet I'd never managed to replicate it...until tonight. The step to complete the quest is in the guide, however for some reason when you accept the quest, it thinks you've completed it and removes the completion step (which is after the Kyle the Frenzied turn in).

Here's the code from the guide:

T Thunderhorn Totem|QID|24441|M|48.59,59.89|Z|Mulgore|R|Tauren|N|To Mull Thunderhorn.|

A Thunderhorn Cleansing|QID|24456|PRE|24441|M|48.59,59.89|Z|Mulgore|R|Tauren|N|From Mull Thunderhorn.|

T Mazzranache|QID|26188|M|47.18,56.76|Z|Mulgore|N|To Maur Raincaller.|

C Kyle's Gone Missing!|NC|US|QID|11129|M|47.18,56.76|Z|Mulgore|U|33009|T|Kyle the Frenzied|N|Wait here until you see Kyle the Frenzied. Target him and place the Tender Strider Meat on the ground.|

T Kyle's Gone Missing!|QID|11129|M|48.31,53.17|Z|Mulgore|N|To Ahab Wheathoof.|

C Thunderhorn Cleansing|NC|QID|24456|M|44.98,45.25|Z|Mulgore|R|Tauren|N|Use the Thunderhorn Cleansing Totem at the well.|U|5415|QO|Well Cleansed|

After doing numerous tweaks to the code to try and find a fix for this, I just had a thought...maybe it had something to do with the previous well cleansing quest (Winterhoof Cleansing), so i removed the |QO| and VIOLA! no more vanishing step.  I'll update the source code as well before the next release as there are a few more tweaks that this guide needs now too.

Gylin's picture

Mulgore update

Erm....opps! I missed the 2.2.3 release.

My "few more tweaks" has now become a lot more!

Hopefully I'll have this ready for the next release, in the meantime I'll update the source code for the Thunderhorn Cleansing fix.

It´s coming up in the chatt, "swatter"?

I think it´s said that I have to install (swatter)? or somthing to make the guide work proper

Estelyen's picture

Are you using the latest

Are you using the latest version of WoWPro? Because I think the check for swatter has been removed in v2.2.0.

Unzipping on the Mac

If you downloaded the zip file into your "Downloads" folder, then the folders you need to copy will be inside the folder called "WoWPro v2.2.0".  They will be called "WoWPro", "WoWPro_Achievements", "WoWPro_Dailies", "WoWPro_Leveling", "WoWPro_Profession" and "WoWPro_WorldEvents".  They need to be dragged into the Addons folder in your "/Applications/World\ of\ Warcraft/Interface" folder.

If you did that, what error did you get?

It won't let me move the wow_pro folders into the addons folder.

Badlands Guide

I'm doing zones for the achievements and the Badlands one keeps getting stuck on the quest "The Sentinel's Game" notes. The part where it tells me to turn the first statue specifically.

I've tried checking it off but nothing happens. I tried resetting the guide, I tried reinstalling the addon. Nothing worked.
