Fizzwidget Hunter's Helper (2.4.01 Fan Fix)

Version: 2.4.01
by: DanielCoffey [More]

IMPORTANT UPDATE : Gazmik has contacted me via the Hunters Helper forum and stated he is still working on Hunters Helper himself. This Fan Fix is now no longer needed and is withdrawn.

==================

This is the FULL DISTRIBUTION of Gazmik Fizzwidget Hunter's Helper with some bug fixes and a re-instated RESET feature.

v. 2.4.01 - 2008/05/05

- BUG FIXES by Steadfast of The Sha'tar
- HuntersHelperUI unable to train Cobra Reflexes even though the skill is known.
- HuntersHelperUI "FHH_UIShowSpellDetail(prowl,nil): can't find requiredLevel" when trying to view a skill with ranks that you know due to your level but have not yet learned any ranks of.

- FEATURE by Steadfast of The Sha'tar
- HuntersHelper re-enabled the /huntershelper reset command to rebuild the table of known skills
- HuntersHelper edited the text displayed after using /huntershelper reset to ask user to /reloadui
- HuntersHelper updated the list of available commands displayed by /huntershelper help to include reset

/huntershelper reset
/reloadui

I agree. Totally.

I understand and appreciate what you all are saying. Yes, this is still Gazmik's addon and a wonderful one too - I was drawn to his addons by his great sense of humour... but it needed some immediate work to correct issues that were experienced by new Hunters.

Gazmik last updated HuntersHelperUI over a month ago and that update had several errors that left the Beast Training part of the addon non-functional.

Since that time I have made reasonable efforts to contact Gazmik - leaving comments requesting help on the forum for the addon, sending emails to the posted email address on the addon and sending a PM via WoWInterface. To date I have received no reply.

My next step before making ANY changes was to contact WowInterface and ask what the correct procedure was. Here is a copy of my questions to the admins and their answers...

http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=16169

As far as I am concerned, this is a Fan Fix to keep the addon going until such time as Gazmik makes contact. At that point, he can either absorb my changes or reject them and fix the highlighted issues himself. My Fan Fix will then be withdrawn and he can resume support of the addon as people have advised me is likely. This is why WowInterface allows Fan Fixes.

The reason I created a Complete Package version was that there are two sub-directories in the addon (HuntersHelper and HuntersHelperUI) and there were changes needed to both of them, so I thought a single file to download was the easiest for users of the addon to understand and follow. I have been thoroughly commenting my changes so that when Gazmik gets back from whatever break he is on he can quickly review my changes.

Remember - this is still his addon. As a new Hunter I just wanted it to work since there were no close alternatives out there and certainly none with his great sense of humour! Like you, I await the day he gets back from holiday or gets his email or computer fixed. In the mean time, this version (and subsequent minor revisions) will stand on WowInterface so we can use his addon.

If you spot anything not working as it should, please let me know and I'll have a go at finding a fix.
Does Gazmik have your blessing to modify his code? I agree with Biggoofyus on this issue since Gazmik is still updating his mods. It's another thing to take over the mod if the author has gone MIA.

Thumbs down Tsk Tsk...

You should only make bug fixes, you should not take over another persons addon and change it's functionality... You should wait for the author to do that or at least discuss it with him... I will not download your addon because I have a great respect for Gazmik!
