Thanks. I also wanted to say that this comment format is hard to read to start with. The replies don't always show below what you are replying to and you have to search to find your post.
Wanted to let you know also that the guide "box" is white/washed out looking as well. It doesn't have the border around it and the top bar that has the zone name in it is white and flat. But it's fine on my other toons.
That is a sign that things have not loaded right.
I think you have swatter, right?
Also, we are getting a little sidetracked. My apologies. If you want I can just stop with my 68 toon and concentrate on the new worgen I made for the current problem. I can deal with the other issue at a later time after we have dealt with the missing arrow.
No worries, I can keep track to up to 4 things before my mind blows up.
However, knowning the worgen guide is clean would let me concentrate on the other error you are seeing.
Otherwise, I will have to finish playing through it myself.
LOL! Well your brain must be smoking just a little by now yes? :)
I will do that then. I don't HAVE to play my higher toon anytime soon anyway...no rush on it. I will get the new guide you posted downloaded/installed and play some tonite after hubby goes to bed when I can concentrate on it.
OK, the guide I posted earlier works up to "The Battle for Gilneas City". Try it up to that point and stop. The arrow stops working after that point.
I also got multiple waypoints working again in the new mapping code ( a stupid typo).
This should also fix the "attempt to compare number with nil" problem with the other toons. Please let me know if I knocked that one away.
K will do. Side note..I still have to /way 50 50 to get the arrow to show up when first starting up the game. After I do that and delete the "unknown way point" it works ok.
Uggh, the last part of the guide had multiple Z tags in some of the lines. No wonder it did not work.
The zone tags are largely correct, but may be off a step +/- 1 .
It wil need a runthrough to correct. Let me know!
Time for bed.
Ok problem already. when I log on I am in Duskahven. I did the way 50 50 to start the arrow, delete the unknown waypoint, but it is now pointing me to "Among Humans Again". Which I have already done and completed/turned in. I am actually on quest "In Need Of Ingredients" to be turned in. I cannot get it to clear that waypoint. When I try , the arrow dissapears. I tried unchecking and rechecking that step, but it doesn't work. So...I cannot do anything yet.
Will wait for your reply before going further.
Since I edited the guide, the addon is confused as to where you are.
Right click on the guide box and do a reset. Also, try disableing/enabling the addon by using the mini-map button.
I think there is a timing problem and we try to set the waypoint before tomtom is ready to accept.
Ok logged on today and the arrow wasn't there. So I did the way 5050 thing and deleted the unknown waypoint and the arrow dissapeared and didn't come up at all. I tried resetting the guide, and disabling/enabling the addon and still no arrow. The guide did reset to "Training in Earnest", but still no waypoint arrow at all.
Just for information...I do still have the arrow on my other toons, just not the worgen we have been working with.
OK, so I spun up a worgen to test from scratch.
I got rid of the old mapping mechanism entierly, added compatability for all the old zone names, got multiple waypoints working again and tweaked the worgen guide.
There was only one place the arrow went away after the rat tunnel.
Otherwise, it was rock steady for me with this build:
K I guess you are buys or away so I will just not worry about this until I hear back from you. Just to make sure you know that I now do NOT have the arrow anymore. If you can't help anymore, I understand and I will just deal with it until I am out of the Worgen starting area.
This thread is getting a little hard to follow. Just wanted to make sure you got the below message about me not having the arrow again...
Ok..I have no idea what is wrong but after the drug scene, I don't have the arrow again. NO idea what could be the problem. Dangit! this is frustrating!!
BTW..this is on the toon I just made a few minutes ago to test Duchess8 with. I don't know what's wrong, but it's something about the drug scene because I am fine until it gets back from that, and when it's done and i have to accept the quest from King Greymane, I have no arrow.
OK Just FYI: On the test toon I already have....still no arrow after /way 5050 and removing unknown waypoint and resetting the guide.
But...so far with making a NEW toon, I didn't have the arrow at first and had to the /way trick, but then I got it. I will post if I lose it or if I have other problems. But again, I still don't have it on the toon I was using to test before this new one.
Out of curiousity, have you tried going through the WTF folder (WTF>Account>Account name>SavedVariables(as well as WTF>Account>Account name>Server>Charactername>SavedVariables)) and deleting all of the WoWPro.lua, WoWPro.lua.bak, as well as the TomTom ones and seeing if that would help? I know I was having trouble with TomTom and WoWPro not getting along, not too long ago and that worked for me.
K just tried that and no it didn't work. But TY for the advice :) I just don't get what the problem could be. If Ludovicus is not having the problem and he is doing the same thing I am, it must be something with me. I just don't know what.
No I haven't done that...but I will. Thanks
Ok I will start a new toon as well. I will also keep this one and see if it gets better.
Ok I will get that done when I login later this afternoon. Will post and let you know how it goes :)
Ok did the above,, But when the game reloaded and I got and cleared the first error and I typed the /swat show this came up. So I am guessing it's the same error that shows when the screen loads.Date: 2011-05-05 12:39:31

YAY! No errors on my higher level toon !! :))
OK just installed and started up WoW. At first as usual no arrow. Did the /way 50 50 and it popped up with the "unknown waypoint". Deleted that and it seems to be working ok now. It is there and pointing me in the direction of the next quest.
I just wonder why it never has the waypoint arrow when WoW starts. I mean I always have to do that 5050 thing. At least on my Worgen toon. It's always there and fine on my others. I guess it's something that needs to be worked out? Because most others especially new players aren't going to know to do that.
Oddly, I never have to do that. Do you get the chatter on startup? You should see it twice for the current waypoint the first time around.
Yes. I get it once before the WoW login welcome message and then once right after it. The same stuff about zone, etc.
I get the arrow fine on all my other toons. Just never have on my new Worgens. I always have to "fix" it by doing the way 5050 thing.
Weird..unless I didn't see it which is possible, I never noticed that number. Thanks :)Have fun at dinner.
Is it ok to play my other toons while I wait for the new guide? I have several that I need to get leveled.
Ok I will wait for that before doing anything else.
Getting this in chat box every time after accepting/turning in a quest:
Looking up default zone 611
Mapped zone 611 to map id 611
Debugging message. Forgot to remove it.
K just made a new Worgen toon. The arrow did NOT appear at first. I had to do "/way 50 50" and it showed up. Just wanted to let you know before I get started questing. I will post if anything else happens.
Ok I hope I am doing this right. Not sure what an array is but this happened while questing.::
Number given: 545: The quest "Onwards and Upwards" in Stormglen village. It says I should go to Krennan Aranas. He is actually at coords:72.7/80.1 The arrow said to go to a certain point, but when I got there it was not where I should go. It was the end of the village. The arrow did not then change telling me to go forward any more, but it went red saying I was going the wrong way. I knew better because I have done this quest before. I am not sure what other information I need to give.
That is OK. The step looks like:
T Onwards and Upwards|QID|24672|Z|545|M|67.51,91.81;72.71,80.13|N|To Krennan Aranas.|
Ignore that problem, we can strip the first waypoint.
You are pretty far in the guide. Has it worked otherwise? Did you start at the beginning?
No. I started right before I gathered that above quest. I was going to make a new worgen toon and play today after maintainance. Jut wanted to test it a little last night before bed. Just woke up so gimme a few hours and I will get it done. Yes, it has worked great otherwise. I actually have an arrow now which is great! :)
So I look in the text file of the guide for the line that has the quest name or whatever in it and copy that, right?
Thanks again :)
Ok I will get this installed and test it in the morning if that's ok? Thank you :)
Is there a place to create and upload or modify the Addon Guides for Dailies? I can't seem to find where on the website... Jiyambi has a nice one for Therazane included with the Dailies module, and it'd be nice if I could add some for other dailies that I find myself doing.
I suggest we hijack http://wow-pro.com/node/3340 and just post them in there.
Aything you put in, I can check in for you!
Right now that would require a structural change to the website. Right now things are slightly broken and need fixing.
However, you are more than welcome to go to https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides and fork off a repo.
Silvann pubished a nice how to:
Learning git/github with WoWPro Addon - Part 1
Learning git/github with WoWPro Addon - Part 2
I did one for Icecrown this morning, just for fun.
Not sure if this is a WoWPro error or Auctionator, but since the "WowPro" line shows up numerous times at the bottom, I figured I would also post here as well as there.

Bug is being tracked on GitHub https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/issues/333
I suspect that some combination of Auctionator, WoWPro and 4.1 is to blame.
Also wanted to let you know that I tried the fix you suggested on that page (the remove all text below -- Fix Interface Options Category bug --) and it didn't change anything. Still getting the error.
Ah, but when you removed it, the stack traceback should have changed dramatically.
The WoWPro\WoWPro.lua:303: WoWPro\WoWPro.lua:273 bits should have gone away.
Could you post the new traceback on GitHub?
I can now verify that since the author of Auctionator did an update, I am having NO more errors! Thank you Ludovicus for all your help and patience :)
Zirco revised Auctionator at 12:14 PM and I just cut WowPro 2.1.11 .
How's that for turn-around!
Wow you guys are fast! TY :)
Ok sure thing :)
EDIT: Ok that's weird. I swear the first time I did it the error was exactly the same. Now it's just giving me the openallbags part. I will post it anyway on the github if you would ike?
OK ty for the link :) Do I need to repost the error on that page?
Sorry for the delay. Running the Boston Marathon took up more of my time than expected. Update today 4/23 in the afternoon!
OK. Cutting release 7.2.0!
@Ludovicus Rumour is probably 3/28 or 4/4 for 7.2
@Emmaleah I have done both horde/alliance Stormheim guides at the start and they are OK, sans the nasty note.
@Emmaleah I will update again on Tuesday/Wednesday when 7.2.0 hits.
