WoWPro_Dailies_Parser.lua line 754:attempt to index: Caught it!

If you logged out with a dalies guide open and then came back on, you could trigger an error like this.

Fix in the next release.

Addon bug

To help us to help you, could you give us a bit more information, rather than just the error.

What were you doing, what guide was loaded at the time, what faction are you, what step in the guide were you on when the error occured etc etc?

The more information we have the easier (and quicker) it is for us to fix the issue

Very sticky TomTom waypoints

I'm having an issue related to TomTom while using WoWPro: Very occasionally the TomTom-waypoints created by WoWPro that are active when I log off will remain on the map forever, even if I delete them in a later session (when I log on the next time, they're back again).

It happened on my priest first when I was doing the Alliance Lunar Festival Guide back in January, the waypoints labelled "Wall of Text" created by the first steps in the guide are now always displayed in Ironforge whenever I log in to WoW, and yesterday it happened for the second time on my paladin while leveling in Un'Goro Crater, the waypoint in question now points me to the location of Gormashh the Glutinous for all eternity :P

It's not a really important issue, it's just a little annoying... I don't really want to delete my entire waypoints profile since I have a lot of other waypoints saved, but deleting those WPs created by WoWPro just isn't permanent. Does anyone know whether there are any other steps I could take?

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.

Sticky Waypoints

You should be able to delete them by clicking on them on the map and having TomTom remove them.

If you set up TomTom to remember waypoints, then by default WoWPro (actually all) waypoints are persistent too, which is baaad.

In WoWPro_Mapping.lua, change:

uid = TomTom:AddMFWaypoint(zm, zf, x/100, y/100, {title = title, callbacks = WoWProMapping_callbacks_tomtom})

to

uid = TomTom:AddMFWaypoint(zm, zf, x/100, y/100, {title = title, callbacks = WoWProMapping_callbacks_tomtom, persistent=false })

and it will never happen again.

Sticky Waypoints: stomped

For what it is worth, this change is now checked in.

I DID delete them

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, your first tip was useless, as I already tried that (as mentioned in my above post :P). That way, the waypoints would simply reappear on the next login.

I did indeed tell my TomTom to remember waypoints but I did that about 3 years or something ago and it never happened until January and then just once again a few days ago, so I don't think that it's an inherently broken option because usually it works just fine and the waypoints created by WoWPro get deleted when the step in question is finished.

I will try to change my WoWPro_Mapping.lua but if I understand your advise correctly, that change will only be able to prevent the issue from happening again and not do anything against those "sticky waypoints" already there... I guess I will just have to try deleting my waypoints profile and recreating all my standard-waypoints from scratch *sigh*

Well, if deleteing the profile helps I will save my standard-waypoints in a seperate backup profile, so that if the issue with WoWPro happens again despite the changes to the mapping.lua, I can delete the corrupted profile and import the clean backup :P

So how reckless are you?

You could just go and edit the <WOW>WTF/Account/XXX/SavedVariables/TomTom.lua file and remove the offending entries from TomTomWaypointsMF and/or TomTomWaypoints .

Guarenteed results :-).

 

 

I believe the problem lies in

I believe the problem lies in TomTom itself.  I was encountering the same problem.  What seems to have been happening is a rounding error where one set of values were being stored and when the deletion happened it did not get the set of values that were slightly different, so they remained in TomTom's database.  There is a fix on TomTom development site.

Thank you!

Thank you so much. I went a month without the addon, and i could not stand it! I was leveling up so slow. But i found out that this whole time, my addon has been in a wrong folder. It wasnt in the folder for windows 7, it was like "Program files(89x)...."  or something like that. But i have it now. So thank you!

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

A Happy you are welcome!

Glad you figured it out.

One of the reasons the addon works nicely is that all the developers use it.

Whenever I try do to something, I stop and think "Where is the guide for this?".

Enjoy!

Dependency Missing?

Whenever i start up the game, in the character menu, the addons file doesnt show the "WoW-Pro" folder or "Wow-Pro_Leveling"? It is in the folder outside of the game though. It detects the other folders though, like the "WoW-Pro_Professions", and "WoW-Pro_Dailies". Any ideas on  how to fix it, besides redownloading the game again? Already tried that.

Gylin's picture

dependency missing

Ok, 1st check your WoW install folder, if you have WOTLK and/or Cataclysm folders you will need to install the addon into their interface\addons folders to.

Also If you're using Vista/W7 have a read of this more in depth addon faq on the blizzard forum, paying attention to the vista/w7 specific bits http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1536706542

I did answer your post in the chatroom, but there it just sounded like you were using an older (pre 2.2.#) version of the addon. As it now seems that chatroom guest 6348 was also you i'll repost my chat from the chatroom:

close WoW, open ...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns folder, delete all wowpro folders, redownload and extract the full addon into your addons folder. Then delete all wowpro saved variables found within these folders ...\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\#account name#\SavedVariables and ...\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\#account name#\#server name#\#character name#\SavedVariables. The 1st folder is account wide settings, the 2nd is character specific settings, then start the game.

You will still need either tomtom or carbonite however.

If you use an addon updater (eg curse client, mmo minion etc) tell it not to update wowpro as only trial versions are hosted on other sites

Pauses / Hickups

I recently noticed a really annoying intermittent pausing in the game... Then I noticed it happened every time ANYONE in the party looted a corpse... a little troubleshooting (took a while) and I narrowed it down to WoW-Pro.It seems worst when an achievement guide is loaded I.E. Lunar festival - nearly one second pauses... Other achievement guides give Shorter pauses... leveling guides seem good... If there are pauses they are not noticeable...I'm not sure if its really a bug or just a delay in accessing "achievement" info from the client/server.Also... the curse "Trial" update was annoying... can you either remove it from curse or upload the real client so curse doesn't wipe the full install. Thanks...Other than that ... LOVE THE ADD-ON GUYS... Keep it up :)

 

P.S.   I have pretty good eyes but your CAPTCHA SUCKS... lol

Estelyen's picture

Addon reacting too quickly?

This concerns a guide I'm writing for the Molten Front Dailies at the moment.

The player has to decide whether to do the dailies for Shadow Wardens or Druids of the Talon by doing a lead-in quest for either side, upon which the other quest becomes unavailable. Of course the guide is meant to show only the steps for the side the player chooses. I did this by tagging all the appropriate steps with a PRE pointing to the first quest, the one which decides which side the player chooses. It's all working fine since the recent revision of the Daily Module, however I've noticed something funny:

When I hand in the quest that all the following steps use as their PRE, the guide immediately jumps to the next step without such a tag until I accept any quest, reload the guide or do anything else that causes the addon to update its guide again. It seems to me like the addon jumps to the next step too quickly, so that the lead-in quest is not yet marked as completed within WoW when it does.

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.

Anticipation!

Download https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/blob/master/WoWPro/WoWPro.lua and overwrite your copy.

Sign on to your toon  and turn on the debugging logging:

/run WoWPro.DebugMode = true

Do your thing with the quest stepping acting up and then exit the game.

Send me a copy of your /Applications/World\ of\ Warcraft/WTF/Account/####/SavedVariables/WoWPro.lua file and I'll see if I can guess what is going on.  I'll PM you my email address.

Coordinate issue in Lunar Festival Elders Guide (Alliance)

Version 2.2.0B WoWPro_WorldEvents\Alliance\LunarFestival.lua -> Line 131

R Undercity|N|Head towards Undercity.|QID|8648|M|66.4,37.8|Z|Tirisfal Glades|

Once you have gotten Graveborn the Elder in Brill, you are then told to head towards UC. The coordintes that are given actually lead you in the opposite direction. You end up at Brightwater Lake.

The correct coordinates are 61.9,65.1. These coordinates will bring you to the front door of Ruins of Lordaeron.

EDIT:

I also found an issue with the next step in the guide after the UC elder. There are no coordinates to set a waypoint with and the zone is incorrect.

Line 133 should be:

R The Sepulcher|N|Run out very quickly and head to The Sepulcher.|QID|8645|M|49.4,38.0|Z|Silverpine Forest|

I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame you.

Issues in Lunar Festival Elders Guide (Alliance)

OK, I have fixed the targeting issues in the guide and made Hendo72's fixes.

If you want the source code now, go to http://wow-pro.com/wiki/lunar_festival_alliance and update yourself.

I'll cut another update after I test the changes myself this afternoon.

Blah, thanks.  Goes to show

Blah, thanks.  Goes to show you, shouldn't write a guide when you're tired.

Typo in WoWPro_Mapping.lua

There is a typo on line 211.

"Darnassis" should be "Darnassus"

I corrected mine and the warning message is gone from the chatbox.

Difficulty loading addon

I had this addon working for a week on multiple characters and was absolutely loving it.  I got on again after a couple days off, and it's not working anymore.  I restarted my computer, reinstalled the addon, etc., and now when I start WoW, it says the WowPro dependency is missing (even through it's right where it belongs in the directory on my computer), but it sees the other pieces for the addon.  It's like the WowPro folder isn't loading correctly while the rest of the pieces are.  Any ideas?

Nevermind...figured it out :)

Total loss of Wow-pro leveling addon

Ok, i have been using this addon for ages and im loving it.

Imagine my suprice that when i logged on tonight that it wasnt working anymore. It seemed i was using the trial version and needed to go to homepage to download the full version.

Well i downloaded it from here and it still said that i was using trial version and all the guides was gone. Looked at the troubleshooting page and did the step by step to fix the problem. Deleted all my wow-pro files and restarted the computer before downloading it again from this site. Same problem. deleted again and even deleted tom tom. restarted computer and downloaded both tom tom and wow pro. Nothing . Now it even refuses to show up in my ingame addon section. I repeted the above steps and even used this link that i found using the bug report page. https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/downloads

Nothing. even tried with a older version.

what to do now?

Gylin's picture

Total loss of WoW-Pro

Ok, check your install directory/folder for the following folders; "WOTLK" and "Cataclysm". If you have those folders you'll need to install any addons into their respective interface\addons folders for them to work correctly. Check that you're fully extracting the addon into the addon folder, if done correctly you'll see upto 6 wowpro folders (depending on how old the version is). Check the you've fully deleted all wowpro saved variables, there are more in the character folders (...\world of warcraft\wtf\account\account name\savedvariables and ...\world of warcraft\wtf\account\account name\server\character\savedvariables).

Version 2.1.24C is in the oven

It has bug fixes for looting count problems in the Dalies module and Dailies guides for Pilgrim's Bounty.

Alliance is done, Horde is being tested.

Full Version?!?

The guide works great.  It hasn't failed me yet.  However, the problem I keep having, no matter how many times I download the guide (Current Version: 2.1.23) I still get the message that I need to download the Full Version from wow-pro.com/addon in order to use it for certain areas like Deepholm and Uldum.  Am I missing something?

Gylin's picture

Trial version upgrading...

You need to delete the old (trial) version from your addons folder and all wowpro saved variables.

The saved variables can be found inside the various sub-folders in the ...\world of warcraft\WFT folder, dig down through all of the folders, especially the saved variables folder (...\world of warcraft\WTF\account\your account\saved variables) and any character folders (...\world of warcraft\WTF\account\your account\your realm\your character\saved variables).

Then reinstall the full version and you should be ok. If you use an autoupdater (curseclient/mmominion), tell it to ignore wowpro, as it'll only see the trial version hosted on outside sites as the most upto date versions

Download link needs fixing...

The download link for the addon needs fixing... 'downloads' should be after 'Jiyambi'


Correction-more info. I had to go to https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides and click on the downloads button. The link on this site isn't making the proper connection.

Updated Version tomorrow morning

I'll test the new Holiday guides and then post Sunday circa 11 AM Boston time.

I'm afraid I stayed out too late Saturday night.

WoWPro.lua:273: attempt to index field 'EventFrame' (a nil value

It might be some other addon interfering with WoWPro.   This sometimes happens if they are using different versions of libraries than we are.  I notice that the AceAddon library was already loaded by Bartender and that it is control instead of our version.

Please send me your \World of Warcraft\Logs\FrameXML.log file.

It will tell me if there is anything strange going on in terms of load order.

You might try also disabling all other addons execept for WowPro and TomTom/Carbonite and see if the problem goes away or changes.

If so, I need to know which version of Bartender you are using, as the one I am using does not give this conflict for me.

Please go get and run the repair tool.

But your log looks clean as far as WowPro is concerned.
If your problem still happens after the repair is done, we can continue debugging.

Continue debug

Used the repair tool, but still gives the Lua error screen

Step 3 in Debugging

OK.  Lets try the following:

  1. Disable all your addons and verify that there are no new errors messages in FrameXML.log
  2. Download and install http://auctioneeraddon.com/dl/AddOns/!Swatter-5.13.5198.zip
  3. Enable Swatter, WoWPro and your arrow addown (TomTom or Carbonite)
  4. Give me the errrors from Swatter.

I got nothing do till the hurricane comes  through!

Out of Date.

Hello i just installed your leveling guide using Curse, but i cant make it function in-game, since WoW says it is out of date, but my Curse client says that its up to date.

Fixed

Alright so I fixed it and the problem was I just needed tom tom! Thanks for the help!

Workaround; insight into questing/TomTom disconnect bug

I am still having the same problem with WoW-Pro failing to update itself as I quest, and failing to display and update the TomTom arrow.

However, I have found a workaround which might also give some insight into the problem. If I make sure to always have WoW-Pro enabled when I log out, then I can be fairly certain that the next time I log into that toon, the WoW-Pro addon will be working.

But if I've turned off the WoW-Pro addon while dungeoning or gathering or something, and I forget to re-enable it before logging out, then it's guaranteed that the next time I log onto that character, WoW-Pro will be broken. I will have to reload the UI in order to make the addon start working properly again.

BTW, I use Addon Control Panel, which gives me a handy button for reloading the UI, but it still takes a while for the UI to complete the reloading process. It's frustrating to have to repeatedly deal with such a glaring bug in an otherwise wonderful addon.

I hope this bug will be fixed soon!

Alisonnic

PS. I'm using WoW-Pro version 2.1.19, and I have only the Leveling portion of the addon enabled. This problem started with 2.1.14 and has persisted ever since.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Addon does not update, try this!

if doing "/dump WoWPro.InitLockdown" prints:

Dump: value=WoWPro.InitLockdown[1]=true

Then you have the same bug I just found.

Try doing:

/script WoWPro.InitLockdown=false

and then resetting the addon.

 

That did it!

I did get true for the dump of WoWPro.InitLockdown, and running the script to set it to false reactivated the addon. Woohoo!

Thank you so much for finding this bug, Ludovicus, and for providing this excellent workaround.

Hopefully it will be possible to fix this in an upcoming release, but for now this is great. I've created a macro to reset the variable, so I can just hit that whenever I log into a character that I want to quest with. Yay!!!

PS. Did I mention how horrible Captcha has become? With the tiny letters it now puts into the image, it's virtually impossible to get them right the first time. I often have to make many tries before it finally accepts what looks like the code to me.

Delays

I am sorry it has taken so long.  I am afraid I have been laid up with bronchitis that nearly turned into pneumonia.

I guess I ought to be more carefull.   Anyways, I will post a link to a test release with the bug fix and I would appreciate it if you could give it a whirl.

 

Test release?

I'm sorry you've been sick, Ludovicus! I hope you get better soon.

Where will you be posting the link to the test release? I'm eager to try it out.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Super Secret 2.2.20X release, don't tell a soul!

Version 2.2.20X with InitLockdown Patch

It prints out a little bit of debugging information, just in case.

I've played it for a bit and it seems to do the trick for me

Partially fixed

I've been using 2.2.20X for a few days now. It is much better!

I still sometimes have the problem with the Guide and TomTom not working properly (No Guide Loaded, Guide and TomTom not updating) when I first log into a character, but after clicking the WoW-Pro mini-map icon a couple of times, everything returns to normal. This is a huge improvement!

Thank you!

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

If you can

If you can capture the messages in your chat log when you log in and it does not work, it would be usefull!

Also try typing:

/tway list

and sending me that output as well.

 

 

WoW-Pro log in message; TomTom dump

Okay, it appears that WoW-Pro's behavior is consistent. I'm using the ...20X test version you posted.

I generally log out of my characters with WoW-Pro disabled. I do this because I like to repair and sell junk after questing or running instances, and I don't need the guide to do this.

Whenever I log out of a character with WoW-Pro disabled, the next time I log into that character, the TomTom arrow will be displayed, pointing to the next target in the WoW-Pro guide. But the WoW-Pro window will not be present.

If I click the WoW-Pro mini map button, here's what happens:

1. First click: The WoW-Pro Guide window appears, containing the title and message "No Guide Loaded."

2. Second click: The WoW-Pro Guide window and the TomTom arrow disappear.

3. Third click: The WoW-Pro Guide window and the TomTom arrow reappear, now working properly. The Guide windows shows the step I was on, and the arrow points to this step.

When I first log in (after logging out with WoW-Pro disabled), the only chat message I get from WoW-Pro is this:

WoW-Pro: Disabled: Core Addon

If I type /tway dump, I get the TomTom help text.

If I remember to have WoW-Pro enabled when I log out, then the next time I log in, WoW-Pro and the TomTom arrow behave as they should. The arrow is present (unless the current step is in certain zones such as Deepholm), and I get a normal window containing the step I'm on rather than "No Guide Loaded." Also I get a bunch of normal-looking chat messages from WoW-Pro.

So the problem behavior is only when logging into a character after having logged out of that character with WoW-Pro disabled.

Logging out with WoWPro Disabled -- Strange Bug Ensues

OK.  I think you zeroed in on the problem, as I can reproduce the behaviour by following your steps!

Now I can go off and debug it.   I have some suspicious code in mind to blame.

¡Gracias!

Logging out with WoWPro Disabled -- Bug Fix

I am now testing a bug fix for this.  

The root cause was that the disabling of the core addon was not disabling the accessory addons.

Weirdness ensued.

Glad you can reproduce the bug!

¡De nada!

I'm glad you are able to reproduce the bug, Ludovicus, and hope you can track down the part of the code that's responsible. I'm glad my post was helpful.

Update: I have been using the new v2.1.21A version for a couple of days now and so far, the bug seems to still be present, but the workaround from version 20x is in, and working. If I log out of a toon with WoW-Pro disabled, when I log back in, I have to click the WoW-Pro mini-map button three times to get WoW-Pro and the TomTom arrow working.

Several zones don't have information.

Okay, so in the past week, WoW Pro decides that it hates me and wants to make me suffer. (Go figure I just resubbed from a 7 day free trial, right?) Trying 2.1.18 strictly doesn't work outright -- something about the WoWPro folder itself refuses to load, no errors, no panda sign, nothing; the addon tab that tends to show up in the Interface bar insists there's no addon loaded, in spite of it clearly showing in the addon list. So switching out 2.1.18 WoWPro folder for 2.1.4 addon folder works...sort of. Several zones listed, seemingly at random, don't show up with any steps. I don't mean they're listed as 0/0, I mean they're completely blank, and selecting them does nothing. (It usually seems to be Durotar, Mulgore, Hellfire Peninsula, the DK starter area, Hyjal, and Vashj'ir.)

Fine, I switch back to 2.1.4 everything, and even more zones show up blank (Every 1-20 zone.) I've tried deleting my WTF and addons folder, I've installed via Curse, uninstalled via Curse, installed via WoWPro, tried looking in the LUA to figure out what is different between different zone versions that might cause one to work and the other to not work, and...

I realize this isn't helpful, because I can't give you any information as to why this isn't working. There are no error messages during any of this, and short of reinstalling (also ran the repair tool twice), I've done everything I can think of. I have no idea why it's bugging out the way it is, and it's frustrating me to no end, because I want to actually level, and the guide isn't cooperating with me. ><

Is there an older-ish version I can download somewhere that isn't 2.1.4 or 2.1.18? One that works?

Zone: Multiple
Faction: Horde
Version: 2.1.4/2.1.18
