Tidy Plates: Lucky Charms

Version: 5.2
by: danltiger [More]

This theme for Tidy Plates uses the Multi-Plate feature to set a custom graphical appearance for different types of units.

Friendly NPCs will have shamrocks, Friendly players have water droplets, and other units will have a heart. The heart for neutral units is scaled smaller than the graphic for hostile units. The casting bar is shaped like a little fireball. Neat, eh?

If you are looking for an example of how to create your own custom plates, this theme is a good place to start. No documentation is available, yet, but I'm working on it.

Re: How to modify to like this?

Theoretically, you should be able to add "orientation=vertical" to the healthbar section of the theme.

One problem: the way that Blizz handles vertical status-bars is different from the way that they handle horizontal; With horizontal bars, the texture coordinates are modified so that the edge of the bar crops the texture as it moves. However, with vertical bars, the opposite (stationary) edge is cropped, so it looks like the texture is being shifted down. This means that vertical bars look proper only for square status-bars. (At least, that's how I understand it)

I got your crash report (thanks!) and compared it with similar errors from other addon forums. Since the problem is not very common, we can infer that the cause is from some specific combination of elements, which results in a crash.

From the Blizzard forums, the moderators have suggested:
  • Addon Code
  • Storage/Memory Problems
  • Permissions
  • WoW/LUA/MacOS Bugs
  • Corrupted Configuration Data

Configuration Data
On your end, you can rename your Interface, WTF, and cache folders, fire Wow up once, and then reinstall Tidy Plates + Lucky Charms. If it still crashes...

Memory/Storage Problems:

Apple Hardware Test
1. find your Apple Hardware Test disk (might be included with the Mac OS install disk) that came with your Mac
2. put in the DVD-rom drive
3. (re)start your Mac while pressing d, until the AHT launches
4. run the Extended test

Permissions Test
1.) click on the Finder icon in the Dock
2.) open the Applications folder
3.) open the Utilities folder
4.) double click on the Disk Utility application icon
5.) select the hard drive the game is installed on
6.) select the First Aid option
7.) click on the Repair Disk Permissions button


If the problem can be corrected by changing Tidy Plates, it may be tough to figure out; Generally, you'll get a simple LUA error if you try to do something illegal with your addon, which is why I'm having a hard time figuring this out.

Anyhow, I'm going to take a break from banging my head against this wall...

Tidy Plates newset version + Lucky Charms alone with no other addons installed crashes my client

Tidy Plates Version 4.8 + Lucky Charms crashes my client

and as written before:

Tidy Plates newest version alone does not crash my client

Hope this helps a bit...

Yes, that does narrow things down. A crash report would help, too. (I forgot about those!) Under your "World of Warcraft" folder, there should be another one called, "Errors". There will probably be several files, ex. "2009-04-20 21.29.42 Crash.txt" If you could send me a private message with the data from that file, it'd shed a bit more light on the subject.

There's a possibility that it's a problem with your installation, since I've had friends test Tidy Plates (with and without tons of addons) on their Macs, with no errors. But, there may be differences with the german client, or something else that I have not thought of; so I'll try as hard as I can to correct the problem.

Edit: Noticed you were having other difficulties, too. Makes me wonder if they are related.

How about just Tidy Plates? If so; Have you used previous versions? Perhaps you could try downloading an earlier release, and seeing if it exhibits the same problem (The Lucky Charms theme will not work with early versions, but you can use the default theme) ... perhaps v4.7?

Also, what happens when you disable everything except Tidy Plates and Lucky Charms?

I hate to have you do all this work, but I need to figure out if the problem relates to addon conflicts, or something else.
It is not crashing with only tidy plates installed. I will test the other things you mentioned later...

Ok, what was happening at the time? What other addons were running? What client (Mac/Win/Linux/PTR)? What zone? Was it in-combat?

I need to either reproduce the problem, or (at least) guess at what the game state might be when the problem occurs.

Just in case you missed my the reply (I posted two replies); I'd been wondering what you were doing and where you were, when the problems occurred; It might have something to do with an event sequence.
