About CogFix

This tiny addon will stop you from crashing due to the cogwheel bug which commonly occurs when mousing over things like mage tables, soulwells, feasts, and the Headless Horseman's pumpkin.

All this addon does is stop one-line tooltips from appearing, so most useful tooltips will be intact.

If you still get related crashes then please submit a ticket stating what you were mousing over at the time of the crash.


Fixed TOC file, stupid mistake by myself.


Now only affects tooltips in instances, as it was also stifling character sheet tooltips.

    I would also like to offer you my many thanks for this add-on. While I am glad it is no longer needed, it did a great job when it was.
  • #20
    Issue seems to be fixed with 4.0.1a, you can safely remove this addon.
  • #21
    Thank you for this addon, was the perfect temporary solution to a very annoying problem!
  • #19
    I have a friend who has been experiencing the bug everywhere (not just in instances), so I expect that there are others who are also running into it outside of instances as well.
  • #17
    The TOC number right now is 40100, which will cause the addon to be out of date. Adjust that to 40000 in your *.toc file and it will run correctly.
  • #18
    Fixed and uploaded, sorry for the confusion to anyone who doesn't auto-check "Load out of date addons."
  • #16
    Thanks Falcon! Now I can actually do the Headless Horseman without crashing to desktop.
  • #15
    Great job Falcon! Thanks a bunch, will try this out as soon as Blizz unlocks my account from being hacked.. lol The WoWGods must not want me to have a horseman's reins.

    The mod author quickly whips up an add-on to try to help everyone who is having a problem with the game and all people can do is be nit-picky bitches about it...

    Scorpia, you're a douche canoe.

    OP, thanks for the effort- I'll give it a try tonight.

    Did you seriously just create an addon for 4.01, brand new, from scratch...that is OUT OF DATE?

  • #11
    I just installed this, went to do HH, still crashed. I went to the addon screen and it wasn't enabled because wow thinks this addon is out of date. Please fix this.
  • #12
    You can "enable out of date addons" on the wow addon screen and it will still run just fine :)
  • #10
    I crashed twice when I moused over the Dalaran bank seats. It was such a bad crash I had to do a hard reboot. So it isn't just instances.
  • #8
    In light of the character sheet tooltips issue I have restricted it to instances only as suggested. The new version is currently waiting approval.
  • #9
    LOL! After you said below that you weren't going to worry about implementing this, I threw your tooltip hiding script into AMFG Lazy Tooltip which already had a mode for only disabling in instances. Great minds think alike I suppose.
