    Add breed IDs to listing

    I like to know what breed it is when I capture, right now I have to mouse over each of the opponents to find their breed ID acronym to see if I want to capture any of them. It would be handy if your mod displayed this as well.

    I tried updating my line 52 and it is still broken, i love this mod. It has not been update for 2 months now tho. Did mrbarnes86 quit working on this mod? Anyone else planning on taking it over? Its such a pain to do petbattles now without this mod. I miss it a ton

  • #99

    Could you describe what's not working?  Saying it's broken doesn't help with fixing it.

    Also, Medevel posted links to a download for a fixed copy of the mod in post 86.

  • #100

    I tried using them that were posted with the fix and it still does not work. So here goes critters don't list that i own them and when i battle it doesn't list the anything in the chat window anymore. The mod doesn't work at all it may as well not be installed because you see nothing in game that would tell you it was there. It worked before the last patch and now nothing

    i have 5 not updated. it appears some combo is causing random crashing. thisis one not updated. could we get this one removed from the problem with an update?

  • #91

    The only issue I have is it tells me how many I have and levels, buts says none are in the journal.

  • #93

    I noticed that as well but if you look closely, it should say 1/3 (or however many out of 3 that you have), even if it says none in red text. Kind of confusing.

  • #95

    Please read comment #66 for a fix

  • #94

    what you are seeing there is a not working script :)
    frist the green "Collection 1/3" or so is blizzard feature.
    the "In journal: None" come from this script but version 1.3.0 was broken with
    patch 5.1 and the original author has not updated the version till now.
    I am not blaming him/her, btw.
    i provided a fix for the latest version of WoW, and since its working for me
    and nobody complaint about its not working i assume its good to use, just scroll
    a bit down to see my post.

    hmm i could not recreate this error, fighting tamers works without an error popping up,
    but i tested it only on npc-tamers and not on pc-tamers.
    second the lines involved in the error-message are only used, when the slash-command is used,
    that suggest me that you are either running a different version, or i overlooked something.
    any case try first to reset the savedvariables:
    close wow
    go into the wow-folder
    open wtf folder
    open account folder
    open the folder named after your account
    open the savedvariables folder
    delete the two files beginning with "BattlePetQualityNotifier"
    there should be two or at least one
    restart wow and test if the error persist

    on second review of the error code, i happen to realise, that you might using
    either a very old version of this script or a complete different script.
    Because the error log keeps referring to a "BattlePetQuality\BattlePetQuality.lua"-file
    but the current script is using "BattlePetQualityNotifier\BattlePetQualityNotifier.lua".
    so i suggest if the error persist try updating the script, you can use the version i
    provided just below your post. but delete the old version first.

    Hey Guys.
    I think this script is just awesome, its fast and light, it does what it should do,
    and it is not overloaded with unnecessary features or UI-elements.
    Sadly it stopped working with the last patch, so i took a look at the code, and i want to share
    with you my hot-fix.
    -> fixed the problem with the missing "isFavorite"
        in my tests it worked instantaneous, but another suggestion was to favor at least one pet
        to get it working
    -> almost fixed the missing minimap-tooltip feature
        the tooltip in the minimap now provides you with a list if you already have a pet of this
        species, but since i didn't found a way to determine if the thing on the minimap is
        a mining node,
        a battle pet or some freaking npc, because its just some string, I disabled the
        "In Library: None"-statement from the minimap-tooltip.
        Since this statement otherwise would be printed on nearly every thing else,
        so if you have some pet on the minimap and nothing is written below it you don't have one
        of these.

    Now this fix is for manual installation, and i don't intend to create some curse friendly download, i am also not the original author, and if the author updates his version i will put my upload down,
    so don't bother asking
    I also don't intend to do support-work like adding features, or such, since i am not the author of this script don't bother asking.
    What i will do, is if in the future this fix stops working and the author of this script didn't provide some update i might come back and fix it again.
    Also if this fix is not working, and it creates some LUA-errors please give some feedback with some useful information's.
    "This crap does not work!" <- This is no feedback with useful informations!

    Downloads, both are the same file, just uploaded to different hosts, both are free and no registration needed so pick your favourite:

    Greetings Medevel

    Hmm for me this changing lines don;t work. But when i make only one pet to favorite addon start working so maybe this is option for someone :)

  • #87

    This seems to be the catch for the isFavorite edit to the LUA file fix.  Once you set at least one pet to favoirte, the mod works correctly again..

  • #84

    I miss this add-on plz update it for 5.1
