MineSweeper
Version: 3.0.0
by: astoll [More]
MineSweeper-3.0

A simple addon that brings the classic game of Minesweeper to WoW with all of the functionality of the original Windows game. Find out who the best "sweeper" is among your friends and guild members and keep track of your personal bests with stats like clicks/s and 3BV.

Features
  • Choose to automatically send messages to Guild, Battle.net Friends, Party, Raid, or Say chat when you achieve a new high score
  • Guild and Friends Leaderboards
  • Personal Leaderboards with enhanced statistics
  • Never lose on your first click
  • Pauses game on minimize to save for later
  • Choose to display game on startup
  • Choose to display game on death while solo, in party, in raid, in battleground, or in arena
  • Choose to display game on flightpath
  • Choose to hide game when brought into combat

Note: Your friends and guild members will have to download version 2.0 for their new high scores to appear on your leaderboards.

Coming Soon...
  • Custom Difficulty
  • Localized Languages

Controls

Left Click - Reveal square
Right Click - Flag/Unflag square
Left and Right Click on revealed square -or- Middle Click - Reveal surrounding squares if number of surrounding flags matches number of surrounding bombs
Left Click Minimap Icon - Show game screen
Right Click Minimap Icon - Show leaderboards and options panel

I tried to get the controls as close to the original as possible, if there are requests for additional controls leave a message below and I will try to accommodate you.

Chat Commands

/MineSweeper or /MS (not case sensitive)
/MineSweeper show - brings up game screen
/MineSweeper show icon - shows minimap icon (requires ui restart to take effect)
/MineSweeper hide icon - hides minimap icon (requires ui restart to take effect)
/MineSweeper options - brings up options and leaderboards panel
/MineSweeper highscores - print personal high scores
/MineSweeper friends <difficulty> - print friends high scores
/MineSweeper guild <difficulty> - print guild high scores
/MineSweeper reset highscores - resets all high scores (resets all saved high scores)
/MineSweeper reset positions - resets game and option frame positions (requires ui restart to take effect)

If you have any requests for additional chat commands please leave a note below.

How to Help

If you encounter any bugs while using this addon please report them here and I will get to the asap. If you would like to help localize the addon for your region you can post here as well. There are very few strings that need to be localized so it should be quick. Thanks for downloading and don't forget to rate.

This is my first addon so I am not an expert, but I could not find a way to send a addon message to Battle.Net friends. If anyone knows of a way to do this please let me know so I can change the way Battle.Net friends receive high score updates. Thank you.

/MineSweeper hide icon

That command will hide the minimap icon, but it requires a ui restart so you can do

/reload ui

for the ui restart.

Done and Done!

Unfortunately there is no API for sending addon messages to Real ID friends, either individually or as a broadcast; you just have to send regular chat messages in a human-readable format and hope the recipient doesn't mind the spam if they don't have the addon installed. Maybe Blizzard will add one when they implement BattleTag support in WoW, but don't bet too much on it.

Thanks for the quick response.
I was wondering if you could elaborate on your issues. I am having trouble duplicating numbers 1 and 2.

Thanks for the input, I'll try to get those bugs fixed for the next release which will probably coincide with 4.1. The first bug I know I can definitely fix, the second one I'll try to duplicate, but the third is kind of an implementation decision, but I'll see what I can do.

I love this addon. I LOVE IT!

But i found a few bugs

-If you teleport with the addon open, the timer will get completely messed up.

-Weird behaviour after flag-misplacement. Try it, open a new game, set a flag randomly and then click another field. Sometime's it will pop up a bomb where you didn't even click at.

-If you press your mousebutton down, move it over the field and release it at a different place, the first field will be activated, not the one your mouse is over.
