Doesn't work

It doesn't work for me at all.

Back in WOTLK everything worked great.

5 minutes ago I have been downloading the addon and TomTom and after creating a new worgen and after logging in I got a lua error.

Some problem with TomTom :(

I don't get the arrow but some weired lua error message as soon as I am logged in.

Seems as if the guide sends wrong coordinates or something.

 

message:

Bad argument #4 to

'Astrolabe.Interface\AddOns\TomTom\Astrolabe\Atsrolabe.lua:

877' (number expected, not nil)

Time : 01/28/11 11:53:02

Count: 1

Stack: [C]: in function 'error'

 

I already tried different versions of the guide, but nothting works =/

Does anybody know, how to fix this problem?

Ludovicus's picture

This is a bug in TomTom ...

I tracked down the bug in TomTom that was causing the errors in Astrolabe.  I gave some pactches to  Cladhaire (the author of TomTom), but he is not sure when he will get around to reviewing them or fixing the probem.

I also had tried to get in touch with Esamynn, the author of Astrolabe, to confirm the correctness of my fixes, but he has not gotten back to me.

The error will pop up in many instances or in phased zones or in maps with floors (like the drag in Orgm).

--------------------
James Whitehead II:
- Initial update to POI integration plugin
Currently, most of the old features should work properly, only there is
now a limitation that it will only work with objective waypoints that
are in your current zone, in particular with the ones on the watch
frame. I will likely change it so that the ones on the world map work
properly, but this will be in a separate commit.
- Add a function to indicate if the crazy arrow is empty
- Add a tag to make it easier to find core logic
- Fix non-zone slash command
- Updated based locale file
- Fixed slash commands for /way reset and /way

TomTom Beta 1.2.0 Code Review

I've done a review of the changes made in the beta release 1.2.0 of TomTom.

All of the troublesome code dealing with (continent,zone,x,y) quads has been updated to use the new (map,floor,x,y) quads.

The patches I made are superseeded by this rework.   I'll start using it and see how it works for me.

Silvann's picture

Is that beta version already

Is that beta version already the one from TomTomLite? The map library used there (same I'm using on our arrow module) should work anywhere, including different floors of a map. Hopefully TomTom's public APIs won't change much...

Ludovicus's picture

API Compatability

The public APIs pretty much work the same way.

I just ran a worgen toon through to level 5 to test out the guide.   When I tried the guide in December, dreadful LUA errors and warnings about zones not being found happened.

Now WowPro and TomTom seem to play nice.

Astrolabe is a TomTom error.  I'm assuiming your in an error where that has no map name, such as the Worgen area.  Though I thought there was a fix to stop that from happening in the latest.

Gylin's picture

Although it is a

Although it is a TomTom/Astrolabe error, even Carbonite gives wrong cords in phased areas. The Deathknight start zone suffers exactly the same, TomTom throw similar errors with no arrow, Carbonite arrow point to the middle of the ocean between EK and Kal'.

My hope is that the instance guide module and our own arrow allows us to fix this problem with phased zones. 

Worgen Guide For WoW Pro Addon

I just wanted to let someone know that in the Worgen guide, the step to accept and complete the quest "Last Chance At Humanity" is not there. Along with this i have found that the quest "Alas, Gilneas!" is not on there. I wanted to get that out there so that it could be updated and more complete. Thank you for your time and the wonderful add-on. I have been using it for only a short while and I'm already loving it.

Missing Steps in the Worgen Guide

BloodFang:  

I have a trial correction for the guide to add the two quests you mentioned.

It turns out to be a little more involved than I expected, as [Last Chance At Humanity] is accepted and turns in automatically.

Jiyambi, I used the standard "A" and "T" steps for the quest.   Is it kosher to have just an "A" step with no "T" if the quest auto-turns in?

 

Gylin's picture

Auto turn in

I'd say yes, as we don't need to tell a user to turn it in if it does so automatically

true

that´s true

Ludovicus's picture

Yuck

It turns out that since auto-turnin quests never hit your quest log, the event that is used to auto complete is never seen.

They need to be listed as "N" steps with an "NC" tag.   Annoying.

Anyways, I ran two worgen through level 8 to test things out.  The guide needed a few other tweaks as well.

(Can we say OCD?)

last version

what is the last version of Wow??

Gylin's picture

Yes we can :P

Yes we can :P

In Vash, I've noticed 2 small errors, one a cord was off, the other a target "X" mob, use "Y" item, and no buttons for either

 

Ludovicus's picture

I knew we could ...

LOL, I just corrected ~10 guides so that the RegisterGuide calls on this website were in sync with GIT.

Things just have to be in the right place and be neatly put away ...

Deepholm Guide

First off, love the guides. leveled 1-82 in 5 days played because of them, theyre great. Im having trouble with the Deepholm Guide though.


 


I get to the step at the beginning to ride on the back of the Wyvern to enter the area. When I got off the bat, the step didn't complete so I manually clicked it off. That skipped me to step 127 of the guide and made a huge list of all the quests I skipped in the middle of my screen. I would really like to solve this problem so I can use the guides again and get back on the fast track to 85.

Jiyambi's picture

It should be stated in an in

It should be stated in an in game tooltip - RIGHT-click to manually check off a step!

Left click causes the addon to try to skip the step, which will in turn skip any steps that depend on it. This is INTENTIONAL for people who want to skip steps!

An issue with the guides

I like the add-on, and it helps quite a bit when I've been able to get it to work.  However, today when I started a worgen, the leveling add-on was shifting to the bottom step of each guide and giving me a waypoint, through TomTom, to that place.  I'd remove the waypoint, move to the step of the guide where I am currently working, and keep moving.  However, each time I finish a step, the add-on would revert back to the bottom of the guide and restart the waypoint for that point.

I'm unsure if this is a unique problem, but it's a very big setback when I'm trying to use these guides efficiently.

Can anyone help?

That is very strange. Is it

That is very strange. Is it only in that one guide with that particular character, or does it happen with other guides as well?

It started in the Worgen 1-13

It started in the Worgen 1-13 leveling guide.  That didn't really bother me too much, since I just accepted every quest to open up the next set of quests.  However, it then continued to happen in Jame's 13-20 Darkshore guide.  It had wanted me to collect the Seed of the Earth from Onu, which is halfway down the Darkshore area, and I was only just coming into the zone. 

I don't think there's any other information I haven't given.  But I'm not sure of any technical questions within the add-on itself.

Jiyambi's picture

Hmmm. Alright, I'll see what

Hmmm. Alright, I'll see what I can find. For now I'd suggest deleting the character-specific and account-wide WTF for WoW-Pro and see if that fixes it.

I have done that, but it

I have done that, but it didn't help with the problem.  Would it possibly be add-on interference?  I have several add-ons.

Atlasloot, Everyquest, AutoVendor, FlightMap, MapCoords, TomTom, WoW-Pro, and WoW-Pro Leveling.

Have any of these caused problems with this add-on in the past?

Jiyambi's picture

Not that I know of, but you

Not that I know of, but you could test by trying to load just our guide and see if the problem continues.

It sounds to me like the addon thinks you have completed all of those quests before, as if their IDs are in your table of completed quest IDs. The fact that it persists after you wipe your character-specific saved variables is VERY strange, though.

By any chance did you have a character with this same name before? I've had issues with that in the past.

No, I've never had a

No, I've never had a character with the same name before.  I actually only saw the problems after I upgraded to Cataclysm and upgraded all of my add-ons.

Do the different guides set an auto-waypoint?  Is there a way to set/unset waypoints within the guide so that, upon completion of the current step, it doesn't revert me back to the last step (and giving me a waypoint with that?)

Jiyambi's picture

Oooooo. I think I

Oooooo. I think I misunderstood you. It's just the ARROW that's skipping, not the rest of the guide?

I'm still not sure why it should be doing this, but that will give me some idea of what's happening.

It's working simultaneously. 

It's working simultaneously.  The guide has a highlighted step that it likes to continuously go back to after I complete a step.

I figured out that if I wheel-click and then left click, I can set a different waypoint, but it doesn't really help me just flow into the next steps.  I still get stuck on THAT step until I wheel-click and then left click on the next step that I want it to stick on.

TomTom doesn't really feel to be the culprit here.

Jiyambi's picture

You're right, if the guide

You're right, if the guide thinks it's supposed to be on a later step it's certainly not TomTom's fault - just wasn't sure what you meant at first.

Well, at this point I'm not sure what to tell you - I haven't heard this particular issue from anyone else yet :( I'll look into it when I have time, but I've sadly been super busy lately and may not get a chance. Let me know if you notice anything else that might be helpful in determining the cause, though!

highlighted step?

highlighted step? you wouldn't happen to have the recorder running would you?

It says STOP, if that means much.

Gylin's picture

Only really need the recorder

Only really need the recorder enabled if you're writing guides, or editing them on the fly.

Going by what you've said so far, any time you log in with the recorder enabled, any guide already loaded will jump to the last step, as the recorder is set up to record new steps which are added after the highlighted step, so it will look for the last step within any given guide.

I think also you have scrolling enabled, which means that the guide window has to be manually moved on to new steps, it doesn't autoscroll to keep up with where you are in the guide

 

Jiyambi's picture

Exactly as Gylin said!

Exactly as Gylin said! Playing with the recorder on is not really ideal at the moment unless you plan to edit as you go, and unfortunately I haven't finished the code that will make it scroll with you when stopped. If you click on a step, it will highlight it and the recorder will continue to return to that step, you can click on the next step to move on to it... if you really want to have the recorder enabled.

I do need to get around to updating the recorder. Sorry about that!

I disabled the recorder and

Now that I've gotten everything worked out, I've been on a nice fast track to getting my worgen towards end-game content.  These guides streamline very very well, and explain what they're doing when they feel the need to do so.  Thanks to the creators and the WoW-Pro Addon itself!

Searing Gorge - Horde

Hey guys, addon is coming along very nicely. Big thanks for that. And don't bother about those people that are ungrateful for your work. While I am doing all quests in all zones for achievements right now I notice that there is no Searing Gorge guide for horde listed in the addon. I am doing the 35ish quests for the achievement without it now, just saying, would be nice to be guided :-)

Technically there is one, but it was never finished. I most likely will finish it soon as I have a toon about to go through there.

help.

Ok so I was told bout this site through a friend on my guild because I have a lot of low level toons. I have level81. So i'm not new, however I am used to Curse.com. I did already put your Light Headed, Tom tom (curse) and Wow-pro on my addon. Now its saying I have no guides. Everytime I try looking for the download guide feature on here all I seem to get is a lot of explanation of the guide (which is great) however its not what I'm looking for. I'm a find click and download kind of girl.. Searching for something tends to make me flustered. Please help me so I can level.


Thanks

Curse does not have the full

Curse does not have the full version, or the one that is up to date. Have Curse client ignore the WoWPro addon. Then download from here and install manually.

Here is the link from the download button above. http://github.com/downloads/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/WoWPro%20v2.1.2.zip

thankyou. i clicked the link and downloaded it. and i put it in the addon folder, but i still dont hv any guides. : /


i'm so confused.  All i get is "no guide" go to interface and select.. i do that (nothing there) says log out and select a guide (i do that) only thing i see is "wow-pro" addon.


someone please help me.

Actually, based on what you

Actually, based on what you are describing, I'm thinking you have the "WoW-Pro" addon loaded but NOT the "WoW-Pro Leveling" module for the addon. That's what would be making the guide tell you to log out, nothing else that I know of would do that. Both the WoW-Pro AND the WoW-Pro Leveling folders were included in your initial download from the site here, so you should have them both.

Check and make sure BOTH WoW-Pro and WoW-Pro Leveling are enabled in your addon select screen. Let me know if that helps, if not we can try other things!

I think you do have the

I think you do have the guides, you just don't have a guide loaded. I believe the panda button on the minimap is still bugged, so you need to open the config panel using the long way.

Click on the Game Menu button (green computer screen), click Interface button, select AddOns Tab, click the plus icon to the right of WoW-Pro, click on Guide List.

Now you should be able to choose a guide based on the level of your character.

If you still don't see anything make sure both WoW-Pro, and WoW-Pro Leveling are in the addon list under the character selection page.

If they are not make sure you extract both WoW-Pro and WoW-Pro Leveling from the zip archive. I would recommend deleting the old folder first.

Twilight Highlands Guide (Alliance)

First off, long-time fan, first-time poster...

Noticed an issue with the Twilight Highlands guide for Alliance, using v2.1.2.  There are two steps that continue to re-appear, despite right-clicking them:

Fight Like a Wildhammer (un-sticky)

Never Leave a Dinner Behind (un-sticky)

I'll right-click them, continue on the guide, and usually after a step or two, they re-appear, and I have to right-click them again.  Noticed this after 2.1.2 was installed--that is, can't say I noticed this in 2.1.1.

Since I haven't ventured into modifying the guide files myself, is there a way to manually fix this before the next update comes out?  Or is it just me having this issue? ;)

Jiyambi's picture

It is not just you - this

It is not just you - this section was reworked and some of the code from the new Dailies module was added in since the Wildhammer dailies are done in this section. Unfortunately, the syntax for the dailies module is not identical to the syntax in the leveling module, and an error slipped through.

You can fix this for yourself temporarily by opening up the lua file for that guide, searching for the offending step, and removing the extra QID.

Here is an example of one of the steps with the INCORRECT code:

C Fight Like a Wildhammer|QID|27752;28861|US|M|53.08,27.73|N|You can go back and forth between towns. Try to pick those not fighting.|

And here is the fixed version:

C Fight Like a Wildhammer|QID|27752|US|M|53.08,27.73|N|You can go
back and forth between towns. Try to pick those not fighting.|

Sorry about that, thanks very much for the report and I'll make sure to fix it in the next update!

rss feed

Not sure if you're aware or if you can control it, but the feed service you're using for your RSS feed, when displayed on my reader is serving ads for gold sellers.  I don't really care about ads in general, but meh, those ads could wreck havoc on the credibility and perceived safety of your addon.

Hellfire

nvm, was wrong about the hearth.

 

edit: also debilitating sickness isn't there anymore either.

 

the southern beacon coordinates are off for the quest Marking the Path.

step 299/307 for hellfire peninsula, it tells u to go falcon watch but the coordinates are at the wrong place.

quest Adminstering the Salve is also no longer available.

also first step in zangarmarsh where it tells u to head to swamprat post, the coordinates are off on this too. the coordinates are at zabra`jin

 

for terokkar forest- aldor (40/242) the coordinates to turn in the quest  Surrender to the Horde is wrong.

quest turn in point for The Eyes of Skettis is wrong. 57/242

Rather be fishin` turn in coordinates are also wrong.

Also, when turning in quest Wind Trader Lathral and collecting the next quest, the coordinates jump to another location when it should be the same person.
