Guide Request

Looking for anyone smarter than me (and with more time) to create a guide for the rare achievements in Outland and Northrend, similar to Glorious!  Anyone up for it?

I already started one for the

I already started one for the Outland achievement until I realized that the rares there are not as "guide-friendly" as those in Pandaria are. What I mean by that is that the rares in Pandaria are mostly sitting idly in one spot or else patrolling in a small area that is relatively quickly scouted for their presence. The rares in Outland often roam across the entire zone they are in, with their respective paths even overlapping, so we can't use WoWPros targeting function as it can only target ONE rare at a time and if one of the other rares happens to be there, we'd miss it. Alternatively, the guide would have to have players flying across the same zone three or four times.

A good example of what I mean are the three rares that can be found on Hellfire Peninsula, just look at the maps: Voraken Doomspeaker, Mekthorg the Wild and especially Fulgorge.

When I saw what an insane amount of work both writing AND following a guide for that would be, I kind of gave up ;)

Re: I already started one for the

An alternative approach is not to write a guide that stands on its own, but one that works in conjuction with another addon.

http://www.wowace.com/addons/npcscan/ is great at finding and targeting the rares, but we would need to provide a flight plan.

Hmm, come to think of it, http://www.wowace.com/addons/npcscan-overlay/ has the creature paths in a DB.  Maybe we could tap into it and generate a path to follow.

Then we could just take care of tracking the achivements and showing the flight route to take.

Multi Coordinate Steps

Auto clearing steps on coordinates, has something broken, going through the Wandering Isles starting zone, I'm finding the coordinates of the first coordinate shows, but doesn't move to the next coordinate when you get near them.

Backslash N

Using Backslash N works great on the step window, but doesn't in the Current Guide window, any chance this can be fixed for the Current Guide window?

I'm sure I can make it work!

wowpro causes game to crash

I've updated all addon and by a process of elimination it is definitely wowpro that is causing wow to crash.  Would reverting to an earlier version fix the problem as the latest version cannot be used.  I've been trying to get any response for several days but everything goes into the black hole of pre-moderation.

should be solved with latest

GoTo waypoints not being removed

I've used the WoW-pro guide addon since about the time of its release. However, some months ago i started having a problem. Whenever i complete a step without walking exactly on the spot of a waypoint, the waypoint will not be removed. So if i don't constantly clear my waypoints i'll have a bunch of waypoints for no reason. I'm using Carbonite, and I'm unsure whether it is carbonite borking up or the guide addon. It worked earlier, so I'm at a loss.

OK, I'm running a Human

OK, I'm running a Human Hunter through the Burning Steppes guide in the addon and have just accepted the quest "Burning Vengeance". Unfortunately the guide doesn't seem to have updated the "Accept" step below:

 

A Burning Vengeance|QID|28416;28174|M|17.31,51.98|N|From John J. Keeshan.|

 

I can see from Wowhead that there are 2 Alliance quests called "Burning Vengeance" but with different IDs (as shown in the line of code above) I have QID 28174 in my quest log.  What I don't understand is.... the semicolon in the code above separates the 2 QIDs, and I'm assuming that should allow either of the 2 quests to "Accept" and complete that step in the guide.  But it hasn't, and the "Accept" step is still not completed and is visible in the addon.

 

Obviously, I can just right click the step to complete it, but I was wondering if this is a bug with the Burning Steppes (Alliance) guide?  Or is it something in the addon code that needs tweaking?

 

Cheers

I've got the same problem but for all the guides on all races, sort of annoying

Re: OK, I'm running a Human

Hmm, Did you get an error message like:

Expected QID nil, found XXX instead on quest [Burning Vengeance] ?

It looks like the leveling addon has incomplete support of multiple QUIDs.

I'll put it on my list!

 

I don't think so... I don't

I don't think so... I don't remember seeing an error message like that in the chat window.  It just didn't tick the step off as completed.

Yes, it is a bug in the guide, one that I reported ages ago (see my comment on the guide page: http://wow-pro.com/node/3265 ), but apparently no one could think of a fix for it.

something to try

Since I don't conveniently have someone of the right level to test this... Can you try changing the ";" to a "," on your copy of the guide? It is located in your wow directory (..\\interface\addons\wowpro_leveling\alliance\50_52_Crackerhead22_burning_steppes.lua) .  Then let us know if that solves the problem and it checks off properly (automatically).

Changing the semicolon didn't work

OK, I've tried picking up the Burning Vengeance quest again after changing the semicolon to a comma and it didn't clear the step.  I've abandoned the quest again, just in case you have any other suggestions for testing the guide.

 

Cheers

Andy

Something to try...

I haven't got anyone of the right level either :-(

 

Thanks for the suggestion... I've edited the file and replaced the semicolon with a comma as suggested, and have reset the guide.  Unfortunately, this alt had already completed the "Burning Vengeance" quest; so the only thing that the reset did was to show the initial "Accept" step again.  But as I've already completed it, I can't pick up the quest from the giver.

 

I'll check some of my higher level toons to see if they've done this quest and if so, I'll run them through it. :)

 

Cheers

Andy

 

hope its right place

I wouldnt call it a bug but didnt know where to put it.

for quest 11/146 for a human mage

The note says "learn arcane missles"

the vanilla quest is "learn frost nova"

i just thought i'd share.

hope im not bugging you guys pointing out something small.

love the addon its great hope to see a skinning guide soon :]

same for worgan. presumably all mages.  Prolly should be reworded to say learn the spell offored... so when Bliz changes it up again, we won't have to.

new bug

I dl'd (and installed)  the newest patch you put on github today.   I opened my tillers guide and when accepting the quest in this step (2nd step of dailies - after the intro)

A A Gift For ??|QID|30470;30471;30472;30473;30474;30475;30476;30477;30478;30479|PRE|30257|M|52.70,50.47|N|From Andi.|

The quest specifically was A Gift for Gina|QID|30479

The step after it is :

B Buy or Make 5 Valley Stir Fry|QID|30470;30471;30472;30473;30474;30475;30476;30477;30478;30479|REP|Chee Chee;1277;Stranger-Good Friend|L|74647 5|N|This is for Chee Chee It requires Reef Octopus x5 and Wildfowl Breast x5.|;30402

and is presumably the problem? (since it uses the friendship logic)

I got the error shown below (but with a whole long list of addos).  I then exited wow, turned off that whole long list of addons, and had JUST wow-pro. wow-pro dailies and tom tom.  At that point only the First N step of the guide would load.  I also tried a differant guide (golden lotus) and only the first N step of that guide would load also

Next I turned on wow-pro leveling and the whole guide would load, but it still wouldnt advance past the step A gift for ??

Next I logged out again and turned on swatter, thus getting the same error without the whole long list of addons. (shown below)

Also of note...When I log back in (or /reload) the steps that should be compete at this time (i.e. A Get all quests from farmer yoon, and A A gift for ?? from Andi) are not checked off.  I am not surprised that the one from Andi is not checked since it is what threw the error, but the first step, (get all from farmer yoon) worked fine and I do indead have one of the quests listed in my quest log.

Re: new bug fix

OK.  Development version now has the friendship crash fixed.

Started playing the tillers guide, but I gotta take an eye break.

Re new bug

Yup, debug code.  And in this case, it panned out!

It means that I probably have the return values from the new function slightly off.

I'll tweak again.

Reputation API Change

I submitted a bug report about 20 minutes ago and then dug into
things a bit more and figured out what seems to be going on. I was
having trouble with the Terrokar guide tonight, where it wouldn't show any
but the "pick a faction in Shattrath" line items (two of them). Looked
back at a bug that had popped up upon login, and realized it referenced not
finding the "GetFriendshipReputationbyID" API call.

Unfortunately,
looks like this call has been removed in patch 5.1, and there's a new
"GetFriendshipReputation" API call. It's not a direct
replacement since they have added in a couple of new return values in the new function.

This apparently directly affects Terrokar since a lot of the available quests are dependent on whether you've got Aldor or Scryer rep.

API Change

Thanks for the heads up.  I put a correction up for Ludo to look at. Hopefully it all works ;)

 

Ludovicus's picture

RE: API Change

Yeah, I was working on it,   There is a change in the developer area:

https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/archive/master.zip

That should fix it.  Please try it out and if it works for both Tillers and regular reps, then I will issue a new release.

 

PS:  There is some debug messages that will print that will tell me things I need to know if it does NOT work right.

 

I am having an issue

I am having an issue installing the WOW Pro and TOM TOM add-ons.  Unless I read the troubleshooting questions wrong then I think something is messed up.  I don't have the path C:\Users\Public\Games.   I tried extracting them to C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft.   I extracted them while they were saved inside the file.  What am I doing wrong because I don't have that path?  By the way WIN 7 Enterprise, Alliance

Emmaleah's picture

Everyones install of wow may

Everyones install of wow may be in a differant place. the C:\public... is just an example. Where you want to extract them to is where ever your WoW directory is ... ie for you C:\program file(x86)\world of warcraft\interface\addons\

What about your install isnt working?

RE: Website bug

Jiyambi has given me Admin powers.  

I can now see the temp file settings and I can see how many security updates and other horrrible things need to be done.

I am glad you can edit, I was looking to upgrade you and was confused as it seemed that you should be able to!

 

Professions Guide.

Professions don't seem to work, all i seem to get is goto trainer and get skill, if you click through that it just says to get the next skill, it doesn't actually tell you what to skill up on, am i missing something or are these broke?

Professions Update

My fault.  I've got the module re-coded but it takes a total re-write of all the different professions to make it work.  Plus, Blizzard thought they should make them easier to get levels so am having to rework that code as well.  Work has also kept me busy and i haven't been able to put in as much time as I wished.  I think what I will do is just put out what I have and update the professions as I finish them.

Emmaleah's picture

took me a while to find it...

took me a while to find it... but ...as you will note at http://wow-pro.com/node/3499

the professions module is still not working correctly.

the floating arrow

when i died i lost my arrow....i have no idea on how to get it back iv looked everywhere.

please help haha

 

Hide guide during pet battles

Would it be possible to add the abilty to hide the guide during pet battles?  I keep the guide near the top of the screen and it overlaps the pet battle info panel.

Thanks

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Hide guide during pet battles

Hmm, Good Idea.   Using the super secret "/etrace start" command and then doing a pet battle yields the following useful events:

 

  1. PLAYER_CONTROL_LOST
  2. PET_BATTLE_OPENING_START
  3. PET_BATTLE_ACTIION_SELECTED
  4. PET_BATTLE_PET_ROUND_RESULTS
  5. PET_BATTLE_PET_CHANGED
  6. PLAYER_CONTROL_GAINED
  7. PET_BATTLE_FINAL_ROUND
  8. PET_BATTLE_OVER
  9. PET_BATTLE_CLOSE

So it looks like the PET_BATTLE_OPENING_START and PET_BATTLE_CLOSE events can be used to bracket the hiding.

I'll confirm and implement.

Ludovicus's picture

Your request for the feature revealed a bug

I noticed that hiding the guide during instances was also broken.

I have coded up the pet batltles hider and fixed the instance hider.

It will be in the next release.

Thank you

Thanks you for looking at this so rapidly.

Waypoints

I just started using WoW Pro guide addon before the patch. It worked great. Now, after the patch the waypoints it is giving me for quests is no where in the zone I am even at. When in durator it wants to send me to Moonglade. On a diffrent character, when in Vashj'ir it was wanting to send me to Ironforge for every quest.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Is it a known bug that is being worked on?

Waypoints - Same problem

I have the same problem with the waypoints.  It seems like all the waypoints in Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are messed up for me.  Are you using Carbonite as your map?  That's what I am using.  I'm not sure if this is a Wow-Pro issue or a Carbonite issue.

Edit - I think the problem is with Carbonite.  I just installed TomTom and the waypoints work correctly with TomTom.  I guess I recommend using TomTom for now until Carbonite is updated properly.

Yep, I am using carbonite.

Yep, I am using carbonite. Good to know. Will be downloading tom tom, thanks

 

Request for community help for multiboxers

The bane of multiboxers quest-wise is the gather quest, or certain kill quests where each toon must complete their own collection by themselves.  If you're leveling a team of 5, then you have to kill/collect 50 items instead of 10.  Big PITA.If we as a community can identify only those quests that can be completed team-wide, that would be a powerful and much desired tool for the multiboxing community.    It could be as simple as asking the multiboxing community to download a version for them to run as they level their teams that has a check box for boxer-friendly quests.  Have it as an addon feature while we use the speed leveling guide and have the addon upload that list, compile it and package it as a boxer-friendly guide.

 

Request for integration with Carbonite

Now, I know that the addon works with Carbonite's waypoint system but here's the catch. I LOVE Carbonite's quest tracking (the way it shades areas on the map which contain particular quest mobs/loot etc) but Carbonite itself doesn't have a questing guide which is what I use WoW-Pro for. Now, unless I want two tracking windows displayed (wow-pros guide and Carbonite's list of tracked quests) I have to disable Carbonite's quest module which then gets rid of the tracking to the point that I almost might as well be using TomTom instead. :(

I really want the best of both worlds. The quest tracking capabilities of Carbonite and the guide/quest ordering of wow-pro. If anyone can tell me of an easy way to achieve this I'd really appreciate it.

 

**update**

Ok, so after some browsing around it seems highly possible that Carbonite may be turning the project over to the community which means it'll pretty much be dying out anyways. Maybe wow-pro could use it's own quest tracking or integrate blizzard's default which also shades the areas on the map?...

I would have imagined that

I would have imagined that Blizzard's map marking system for quest areas would have been good enough.  What I believe would work is if WoW-Pro selected the POI for the associated quest so Blizzard would automatically update its maps to the current quest WoW-Pro is tracking.
