    Hello,

    Any update for WoD?

    Thanks

     

  • #124

    Can't make it work. Is this still being updated?

  • #123

    To make work in 6.0.2 download and install the LibPetJournal-2.0 separately. The lib has been updated but the update has not been included in this mod yet.

    Rewritten and updated

    I've rewritten this and updated to work with 5.4 (and added a feature or two). It's available here:

    NOTE: This AddOn does NOT tell you the rarity of a battlepet prior to entering a battle.  If you're looking for a quick way to find rares, this isn't it.

    What this DOES do is help you quickly figure out (without having to open your journal) is what level and quality of pets of this kind you may already own (by displaying it on mouseover, and also when you mouseover the icon on the minimap).  Once you enter a pet battle, it displays the quality of any pets in the battle in your chatbox.  That's all it does.

    Although this addon has been abandoned by the author, it still has some functionality, thanks to Medeval, a poster in this thread.  He posted an update, however, that update is also out-of-date and needs a slight tweak.  Get his update here:  https://www.box.com/s/0kt3pfk3ftdaz1afz7py

    Then open the .toc file with a basic text-editor like notepad, and replace the garbled text with this:

    ## Interface: 50300
    ## Title: Battle Pet - Quality Notifier
    ## Author: Neutronic
    ## Dependencies:
    ## OptionalDeps: LibPetJournal-2.0
    ## SavedVariables: BattlePetQualityNotifier
    ## Version: 1.3.1
    ## Notes: Displays quality at the start of a wild pet battle

    LibPetJournal-2.0\LibStub.lua
    LibPetJournal-2.0\CallbackHandler-1.0.lua
    LibPetJournal-2.0\LibPetJournal-2.0.lua
    BattlePetQualityNotifier.lua




    Good luck and happy hunting!

    This code sometimes has an ever expanding tooltip window when I go over a battle pet in the mini map.  I am not sure exactly what is causing that, but it looks like it is in an endless loop showing the same information.

  • #118

    It seems that the line near the end

    GameTooltip:HookScript("OnUpdate",function(self,elapsed)

    should be changed to

    GameTooltip:HookScript("OnShow",function(self,elapsed)

    That prevents the infinite loop.  The data doesn't always show for me, but that could be a collision with another addon.

    I am noting this in case anyone else is having the infinite loop problem.  Someone on the Blizzard forums said that OnUpdate is better to use anyway.

  • #117

    I have narrowed the problem down to the hooked function at the end being called repeatedly:

    GameTooltip:HookScript("OnUpdate",function(self,elapsed)

    This only happens in some cases, but seems to add the information forever on each update.  I don't know WoW LUA enough to know why this is happening.

  • #114

    Will that also fix the tooltip?  I am being told it is not in the journal and that I have one in the same tooltip.

  • #115

    The text wasn't garbled when I looked at it, but I replaced it anyway.

  • #113

    Thanks for this.

  • #111

    What a pity many addons can't be better supported. I came here having read what a great addition this would be only to read many many comments discussing how the library is out of date, and seeing few or no responses from the author. The author might want to look into the fact that WoW is actually patched up to 5.3.0 as well... the addon seems to be lagging behind on simple toc version updates as well. Hate it when good addons go unsupported, but it sounds like my best bet is to look elsewhere. Sorry the author is unable or unwilling to keep this addon up to date. Thanks for coming up with the idea so others can (hopefully)  implement it more effectively.
