    I can confirm this also worked on my Mac OSX - lines 38 and 63.  Just do an edit/find for displayID and there should be 2 occurrences; then type in the isFavorite with a , as described.  File opened in textedit. Quote from Zhathras »

    I can confirm that putting "isFavorite" betveen "displayID" and "name" works.

    However it was not on line 52 for me. its on line 38 and on line 63.

    File opened in Wordpad.


    For those who dont find the file its located in: ...../World of Warcraft/interface/addons/battlepetqualitynotifier/

    name of file is: BattlePetQualityNotifier.lua

    I cannot find such a line with "isFavorite" - and I do have the latest one available here from Curse. Any additional help? Am I looking in the wrong .lua? I also cannot find a line where 'isFavorite' could be put between 'name' and 'displayID'. Clueless :(

    Didn't fix the problem, I'm still getting (Not Owned) for every pet (and I do own them, except of course not in every quality as I usually "throw away" the lesser ones, once I get f.ex. the blue version.

    The problem is that "isFavorite" is missing and you need to add it to the line to fix it.  It should be line 52 that you add it to and you need to add it between "displayID" and "name" so that it'll read as "..., displayID, isFavoriate, name, ..."

    11/30  6:25 US Central time - I keep "Updating" but WoW continues to say it is out dated??  What do I need to do??

  • #65

    NEVERMIND - I just noticed that this has not been updated since sometime last October.  Wonder when it will get updated?  I really loved it.

  • #63

    I highly prefer this addon to Bliz's version, especially the notification if the pet is an upgrade.  Please do keep this one updated!

  • #61

    Looks like LibPetJournal-2.0 (which this uses) is what is causing this to break - when that gets updated then I think this one can be.

  • #60

    As a collector I really liked the simplicity and unobtrusive nature of this addon.

    As of 5.1 pet IDs were converted to GUIDs and functions renamed to reflect this fact.

  • #58

    I would prefer this addon too. The ingame Blizzard UI shows only how many pets you have, nothing about the quality. I don't understand why it is so difficult for Blizzard to give us this information?

    Please update this addon. Thanks

    Why is it saying I have 1 of 3 of a wild pet and also saying "none"


  • #57

    I believe that the 1/3 refers to the fact that you can only have 3 copies of a certain pet -- except for unique pets (like store bought ones), which only allow 1 copy.  

    So, if the addon is working correctly -- it should show you how many out of the 3 you have -- if you have none, it will say that.
