    I deleted some files in UI folder. For example AH and Mailing. Will it cause performance issues now?

  • #505

    it'll not cause performance issues, but i think you'll get many lua errors. You need to remove/change some lua source in CleanUI.lua and maybe other files, e.g. config. maybe i find the time to add some configuratio, so you can disable some features...

    Chat use when infight

    Hey, i'm not sure if its a bug ar a feature but infight i cant write something in the chat. Pressing "Enter" or clicking in the Chatbox doesn't work. Could you pls fix this? :D

  • #501

    I am also facing this problem. In fact, I've been facing it for a very long time now and it persists with every update. I complained about it before but the addon author said he couldn't reproduce the error. I am thinking maybe it's a conflict with another popular addon but I couldn't pinpoint it.

    I had this same problem last year and reported it, but it seems to still be an issue that hasn't been addressed. I solved it by going through every chat option and found that it was when I had "Show Chat Action Bar" turned on that I had this problem.  The problem with not being able to chat in combat was resolved when I turned this off and was recreated when I turned it back on.  Maybe you guys could try turning it off and seeing if it works for you as well.

  • #496

    yes.  in this version you can drag all unit frames with [ctrl] + right mouse button.

    With WoD this will change and you can then only use the blizzard functionality...
