About BG Defender

BG Defender (Based on AB Defender) gives you a little movable window with buttons to announce the number of incoming enemies at the base you're defending in AB, EoS, AV and WSG. There are also buttons to call for help or announce the base you're defending is safe. BG Defender will automatically pop up when entering a battle ground and close after you leave.

/bgd - to show/hide window

/bgd help - to show all commands

AB Defender was created by Riel Kil'Jaeden GER EU, based on FaraFrames by Farang.

    You will probably need to deactivate or uninstall WSG,AV,EoS or AB Defender if you have them installed.

    BG Defender localization for the German language completed (Thanks too Kazagore, Tomslayer and BenChavo with translations)

    Thx,

    Shaboo Frostmourne

    P.S. If you would like to see BG Defender localized for another language just post the zone name for each battleground as it appears in WoW on http://www.curse.com/downloads/details/8921/

    BG Defender no longer being updated? real shame

    Hello all who like this addon. From the lack of reply or update it may be considered this isnt  being updated orsupported for 5.0.4 ?

    A real shame as a great addon for bgs.

    another similar addon if u liked BG defender is called "Incoming". I have nothing to do with this addon but good to know of alternatives which aren´t giving LUA errors.

    http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/avellianceincoming

    Personally I found the inability to turn off the [incoming] at the start of all announcements annoying so i opened the LUA file and deleted those bits from the messages sections.

    I would prefer to use BG defender, but with the current LUA errors I have tried this. Hope this info helps those who used BG defender

    Excellent Addon and Vital for Quick comms in BGs.

    Any chance of an update for 5.0.4 as its throwing up a few LUA errors now, so I needed to disable it for the time being.

    Many Thanks

    Is there an update for 5.0 inbound?

  • #81

    In 5.0.4 it's throwing an error for me:

    1x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "BGDefender" tried to call the protected function "CompactRaidFrame1:Show()".
    !BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>

    I love this addon, but I didn't like the original text of the messages.  I've changed mine, and I get a lot of compliments and inquiries about it.  How can I send y'all my updated text, so you can possibly include it as standard?

  • #79

    hi, it doesn't work in Artahi Basin.. how could it be there? thanks

  • #77

    Why it doesn't work at Eye of the Storm? When it'll fixed? I'm using latest version of client downloaded from curse.

  • #78

    There're 2 translated error in zhCN.  You can go to the locales folder and change the line to BGD_EOTS    = "风暴之眼"   and  BGD_GIL     = "吉尔尼斯城".

    What does the "m" button do? (Top right) All it did for me was suddenly become a "p" button, which just confused me further. LOL

    That button makes is "Movable" or "Pins" is so the window cannot be moved.
