  • #299

    I recently had to reinstall all my addons. After this, Collectinator seems to be working fine with pets, toys and heirlooms, but when I press the "scan" button on my mounts tab, nothing happens at all. I tried exiting the game, uninstalling and reinstalling Collectinator a few times, but the problem persists. Do you have any suggestions?

  • #297

    Life-Binder's Handmaiden is missing from the mount list.

  • #296

    Hello i like to know if there is anyway possible to add a macro so i can keybind the the addon so i can fast open it and not open the pet journal first then the addon? this had been awesome :)

    Unfortunately not, as it pulls information from your Collections panel.

    Even after the update I'm still getting an error. I'm unable to press the button to expand all on Pets and Mounts and Toys and have it actually expand. Instead of expanding, I get this error (with or without other addons enabled): 

    ID: 1

    Error occured in: Global
    Count: 1
    Message: ..\AddOns\Collectinator\Utilities.lua line 43:
    bad argument #2 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)

    [C]: format()

    Collectinator\Interface\List.lua:1454: ExpandEntry()
    Collectinator\Interface\List.lua:449: InsertEntry()
    Collectinator\Interface\Tabs.lua:413: Initialize()
    Collectinator\Interface\List.lua:750: Initialize()
    Collectinator\Interface\List.lua:804: Update()

    (*temporary) = "|cff%s%s"
    (*temporary) = "6a9ad9"
    (*temporary) = nil
    (*temporary) = "string expected, got nil"

    The expand feature works fine for the new heirlooms list.

    Fixed in 2.0.15. With WoD, Blizzard removed the ability to query names for opposing factions, so Horde can't see Alliance faction names and vice versa. No clue why, but there it is. :/

  • #295

    The wrapping issue is fixed in 2.0.16

  • #294

    Thanks! I was still experiencing the error after updating, but after deleting the addon completely and reinstalling it it's functioning properly - well, except for some weird overlapping text on mounts or pets that have long information that exapnds, but that's tolerable.

  • #290

    Yaaay, thanks for update! :)

  • #289

    Thankyou so very much for all your hard work with the update.

    We really appreciate what you have done.



  • #288

    Please update :(

  • #284

    Hi guys!

    Collectinator is being worked on, its just not *finished* yet.  I'm working as fast as I can on it between work, and life. If you want to stop the errors, and get what we're working on, please switch to the Alpha builds for now.

    Also: A feature has been added: Toybox support!

    Database for Mounts is done. Working on toybox, then to pets.

    Hopefully going Release soon, until then, please use Alpha. :)
