Taint Problem fixed in PTR 5.4.2 patch
Posted By: Gregity
Hey all, Just was browsing the posts on the Taint subject to see if Blizz had done anything. Apparently they fixed the problem in the PTR with the 5.4.2 patch. So, that means that this bane will go away with the next patch. :D Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't break something else. :cool: -g

Gurrr!
Posted By: Gregity
I'm getting an error when opening and closing the minimap: "QuestGuru_Tracker has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI." This is the Blizzard Bug. If you have a bug-grabber / swatter type error catcher you can see more information. As reported below, random A...

Reeb, Have I got a deal for you!
Posted By: Gregity
I think I got it fixed. I was actually getting the error, but it was being suppressed. After I fixed the last tracker error, I noted that my Tracked Achievements all disappeared - no longer checked at all. Bless my poor lil mage who ported back and forth all night while I hunted for the problem. And, Lo! Behold!, In the sam...

QGT_Achievement has a fix in!
Posted By: Gregity
I found a problem in the QGT_Achievement and was able to fix that problem. I hope it's the fix to the Achievement error that others have been reporting. The problem I found is related to patch 5.4 and apparently Blizz is no longer treating the SetValueStep(1) as it did before. Since patch 5.4, GetValue from the slider will give...

Curses!!!
Posted By: Gregity
I don't know how it happened, but the main file in QuestGuru went missing in my uploaded copy. I refreshed the upload just now. No changes, just all of the files are included. Sorry for all of the trouble I caused folks! -g

More on the Taint
Posted By: Gregity
On the Blizzard forums: (Of course, Bizzard hasn't said a blinking thing). IsDisabledByParentalControls Taint: As of 5.4.1 a call to the secure function C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls() has been added to the UpdateMicroButtons() function. Because UpdateMicroButtons is called during the OnShow and OnHide events of ov...

Achievement error
Posted By: Gregity
@Reeb, thanks for the details. Does this only occur when you portal to a specific place or to anyplace? @All, anybody else getting this problem? Just looking for some sort of pattern. -g

Re: Feature's
Posted By: Gregity
ow and before i forget , have you been checking the Feature's list recently ? Keep the feature list growing. I've long since had plans on addressing most of the issues and requests, but RL just comes first and right now, RL is a bit demanding on my time. I too want much more action on the AddOn, but I don't get all of my want...

I'm innocent.... Honest....
Posted By: Gregity
OK, I just got this error again, and QuestGuru-Tracker wasn't even enabled. Same error message as below, just listing a different AddOn. Blizzard has really forked up something and this is seriously a Blizz bug. Here's the latest error (I suppose there is a chance that Overachiever actually tainted something, but I doubt it)...

I'm being Framed...
Posted By: Gregity
Well, I had Shareel's error pop up and I captured the error and pasted below. This one Framed QuestGuru_Tracker. Has anyone else got this reported against QuestGuru itself? The trace-back on the error results does not list me, only the Message. But I don't use any of the listed functions. This doesn't make any sense to m...

Achievement Tracker Error
Posted By: Gregity
Can you cause this error at will? How many achieves are you tracking? try "/script ReloadUI()" instead of having to logout and in. Case Sensitive, don't forget the () on the end. You might simply try /reload as sometimes other addon have that as a command. No guarantee on that one however.

Patch the patch
Posted By: Gregity
Yes, shame on Blizzard for making a major change in a simple patch. Not only screwing up OnShow but also dropping a console variable "realmName". Bah, I know people at Blizzard. I'm going to find out who signed off on this. There are a few good ideas about a way to accomplish what Blizzard seemed to want without breaking everyt...

WorldMap ?? not me...
Posted By: Gregity
QuestGuru doesn't use WorldMap and hasn't for a long time. Some of the Original code from Mr. Obrien has some WorldMap references, but those have been removed from the AddOn for a couple of years now. Just to make sure, I did a content search on "WorldMap" and came up with zip except some old svn references from years ago. The...

Scenarios, etc, etc
Posted By: Gregity
The problem with any updates to really clean up the Scenario situation is still waiting until I'm not so buried and have some more free time to do extensive coding (and more extensive testing). I do feel the pain and I (hate to admit) just disable the tracker when I do a scenario.

Achieve Tracker Issues
Posted By: Gregity
Hey all, I still don't have that problem fixed because I am not having the issue. Anybody willing to help me isolate the error? You'd have to be comfortable editing the LUA code. Let me know.

QuestLog_OnShow (& OnHide) taint fixed
Posted By: Gregity
Howdy all, Thanks for the news about the taints and some ideas. I ended up solving the problem another way. The problem is as stated and **SHAME ON BLIZZARD** for breaking nearly every addon that hooks an OnShow. Because I'm simply extracting information, I was able to use frame:HookScript to extract (OnHide) and use (OnShow) t...

Not Gone Yet
Posted By: Gregity
Howdy all, I may not be out of the picture after all. RL is in flux just now and looking hopeful so I'm not going to relinquish Author-ship of this mod just yet. Hang in there. I just updated the Mod for the 5.4 patch. No real changes, just a TOC update. -g

Author Wanted! Send PM to Gregity to Apply
Posted By: Gregity
Howdy all, I took over this AddOn when MrObrien had to quit because I didn't want to see it expire. It is my favorite AddOn and I had the time to spend to work on it. My RL situation has changed enough that I do not have the time or the energy to devote to this project. Perhaps someday again, but not now and not for the fores...

New Update for MoP Escalation 5.3
Posted By: Gregity
I updated the TOC for the Expansion. I fixed the bug that caused it to blow up. I haven't extensively tested it yet, but it's not blowing up for me currently. **AND MOST IMPORTANT** I added the updates to the Tracker that CMTitan provided that made the tracker work a bit better with Scenarios. To all those who've been conc...

Currency Crises
Posted By: Gregity
The latest update is out. It appears that the bug is limited to quests which have an objective which is a currency. Various places have these and you can look at the messages below to see. If you had one of the "offending" quests in your log, you would get this error irregardless if you were doing that quest or not. I had put...

Re: Re: Re: Also getting the same error as last poster
Posted By: Gregity
On a side note you had said if we collapsed the header for the problematic quest the "debug" text would stop showing up, but when I did that it continued to send the debug information. Really?? The quest you need to collapse is the one identified on questLogTitleText parameter. -g

Re: Also getting the same error as last poster
Posted By: Gregity
@griffin224 - Thank you for at least reading the below. @all - yes, I will be removing the chat message. The reason it was placed was to help get additional information that would help determine the size of the problem. I will be "turning it off" in the near future. So far, it appears to be related to currency only which make...

Re: Re: Re: Fatal error
Posted By: Gregity
Pew! You are getting a program crash, not a LUA Error. This is a Blizzard bug, not an AddOn bug. Blizzard should never crash, even if an AddOn has a bug. If you look at the stuff you posted, there is much that looks corrupt. What realm are you on and what is it's native language? Noting this from below: Current Addon:...

Re: Fatal error
Posted By: Gregity
Hi, when i click on QG Announcer option - WoW close with Fatal error. Maho, I'm sorry, mind reading is not a specialty of mine. Lack of useable information means I can't help you. Look at it from my perspective. If the AddOn was failing for me, I'd have fixed it already. If there is no mention in a Bug Report or in these mess...
