Posted By: acapela
The elite dragon icon is not being displayed properly and I still have not figured out how to fix that. P.S.: Is it possible to abbreviate NPC's long names? Go into Aloft's "State Icon" options, and adjust size/position as desired. If you are running an old enough Saved Variables, there may be some conflicts, so watch for that....

Hydra 5.4.8.175
Posted By: acapela
Quick feedback. Installed Hydra 5.4.8-175, cleaned out saved variables, enabled all debug options, formed a 2-character group (both on the same realm), performed "add group". Follow "works". I can confirm the issues with mount functionality. Same settings as the other user documented (mount with group on, use random mount of...

Posted By: acapela
a new release of Aloft is available, pending moderator approval: Aloft-5.2.8-2574. this release addresses Blizzard's change in WoW-5.4.8 to certain console variables (including all of those related to nameplates), precluding altering their values during combat.

SetCVar protected in combat?
Posted By: acapela
update: it appears the answer is "yes", but it is specific CVARs that are protected, not the SetCVar() function. Blue post http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/12674209697 (My initial google search didn't turn this up.) I will compare/contrast with Blizzard default UI activity (i.e. are Blizzard's keybindings active durin...

Name change incoming
Posted By: acapela
FWIW, in the interest of avoiding additional controversy, I have made the software changes required to alter the name of the addon to "DisplacedEnergyWatcher" (the most innocuous/sanitized variant I could think of). I will release this here (and change the addon description and associated WoWInterface page names/etc) as soon as I ha...

I understand how the word Nazi is meant by you but as a German I don't understand how anyone comes on the idea to use it in this way, there are so many better words. Its creepy how words get abused so easy. Have you every thought about what a Jew woud think while downloading and using this addon? And what happens now if you google...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Quest Functionality
Posted By: acapela
If that's the case, there's probably just nothing I can do about it. When it happens, does any part of the default UI's quest display stop working? If you register for the same events in another addon, are they received there? At this point, I have seen the problem crop up even when there are no LUA errors for the session. I will...

Re: Re: Quest Functionality
Posted By: acapela
That's pretty weird. None of the quest API functions are protected in any way, so taint shouldn't be a factor. At least with that info I can try to reproduce it. some refinement of this. i have observed a few cases where there is an error in BugSack, but Hydra is unaffected. here is an example of the sort of error that seems to...

Quest Functionality
Posted By: acapela
Regarding quest functionality: I am finding quest autoshare/autoaccept functionality stops working as soon as any addon catches a LUA error. As far as I can tell, the perpetrating addon can be anything, and completely unrelated to Hydra. In fact, I am seeing LUA errors that apparently originate and propagate entirely within Bli...

Posted By: acapela
Are both/all of your characters on the same realm? Are you using the keybind or the slash command to request your other character(s) follow you? Are you in a party or raid group? Are you inside an instance? Are there any players in your group who aren't on your trusted list? If you reset your settings, did you remember to re-add your...

Posted By: acapela
conclusion: someone needs to work through the code, use Ambiguate() everywhere, as needed, or otherwise resolve the "charname-realmname" issue throughout the addon. looks like most of the subsidiary Blizzard API is equipped to accept simple character names, but not "charname-realmname". i don't how things are supposed to work i...

function f:CHAT_MSG_ADDON(prefix, message, channel, sender) if sender == myName or prefix ~= "Hydra" then return end sender = Ambiguate(sender, "none") You are a lifesaver! Don't think I could live without Hydra... hope Phanx gets a chance to look at these things soon. I actually tweaked this slightly: function f:CHAT_MS...

are you saying that Blizzard now provides cast bars on all default nameplates, regardless of whether the associated unit is targeted or not? can you PM me a screen shot? Sorry. Yes, this is what I'm talking about. :) got it. i will look into testing/verifying this (maybe i can just visit a BG with a stealth-capable character, w...

Spell cast info is now available for all units. Is this implemented and if so, what do I need to do to enable it? I still only have it on current target. i am not certain what you mean by these various terms: "spell cast info", "available", "all units"... are you saying that Blizzard now provides cast bars on all default namepl...

Possible to reimplement support for tapped health bars? Pretty sure this is in the default UI once again. the color change? i will look into it. update: with Blizzard's default nameplates, i don't see any indication (health bar color or otherwise) to indicate a tapped state. can you PM me with a screenshot? thanks.

Hi Acapela, I've noticed my FPS drops severely between no health bars and health bars. It doesn't with standard bars so I'm wondering if there is anything you can do about that? mine drops a bit as well, but not what i would call "severely" (whatever that means; if i usually get 80fps without nameplates, i will get maybe 75fps wi...
