James D. Callahan III <>
2014-02-14 02:01:29 -0600


James D. Callahan III:
    - Fixed ticket #181
    - Various fixes: Unclaimed Black Market Container, Secondary pet locations
    - Various fixes: Retire changes, New mount on Store, Unclaimed Black Market Container
    - Remove Eregos from Mobs.
    - Blue Drake only drops from Eregos if you do lvl 80 heroics via Dungeon Finder, which isn't likely these days.
James D. Callahan III:
    - Added RETIRED as an acquire type which does not show a tooltip hint for spawning waypoints.
    - Added CATEGORY_COLORS.hint Cleanup.
    - Rearranged some tooltip elements to be where they're supposed to be.
    - Removed the RETIRED flag check from the tooltip-display function, as the RETIRED acquire type handles this now.
    - Remove checks for the RETIRED flag from the Expand* functions; these should have been Custom entries, and the companions should have been flagged as such...moot point since the RETIRED acquire type handles it all now.
    - Added list and tooltip displays for the RETIRED acquire type.
    - Hey - DISCOVERY isn't a valid acquire type in Collectinator. Go figure.
    - Attempt to display tooltip information for acquire types which have no acquire data.
    - Added RETIRED to the list of acquire types which can only be entries in the list; never headers, subheaders, or subentries. Consolidated these into a table named CHILDLESS_ACQUIRE_TYPES.
    - Ported changes from ARL such as improved list code and behavior of entry-selection: Collectable entries can now be selected via right-clicks.
    - Missed a spot in the tab code cleanup.
    - Sanity check to prevent non-existent filters from breaking the UI.
    - Major refactoring of the tab code.
    - Replaced usage of non-existent localization with UNKNOWN.
    - Battle pets which are only obtained from secondary fights will now be displayed with "Secondary" instead of a set of coordinates. Unfortunately, at this time, no such battle pets are defined in the database...
    - Fixed a couple of AddZoneLocation calls - missing valid is_secondary parameter.
    - Cleanup, and added support for battle pets with unknown coordinates in a zone.
    - Clarification and readability changes.
    - Greatly simplified portrait-setting code and replaced the portrait textures with MUCH higher-quality versions. Thanks to Neffi for the conversion, since SetPortraitToTexture is evil and requires BLP format...
    - Update all battle pets for secondary boolean flag
    - Add rough coding for 'secondary' designation for battle pets
    - Fix start location of 2 quests
    - Fix location of mob

    I pressed the red X on the scan pop-up to get rid of the window.

    Now when I press "scan" I get an info bubble on the bottom of the screen that tells me what the scan button does... but no actual window with the information about the pets.

    Any help?



  • #276

    Most likely its just popping up behind the Mounts and Pets UI screen.

    Would it be possible to filter vendor mounts that requires special currency? Or otherwise show what currency you need instead of just showing it under the "vendor"-tab.

    Otherwise, awesome addon!

    When pressing 'Scan' I get an error:

    Ok, took a while to figure it out. The problem was caused by two typos in 'Mob.lua' located in 'Database'. Line 142 and line 149: 'Z,TIMELESS_ISLE' should be 'Z.TIMELESS_ISLE', i.e. a period instead of a comma.

    Collectinator has been updated for 5.4.

    There is however a 'Known Issue': When scrolling over World Drop, an error will pop up.  It won't stop the addon from working however, it's just annoying.  Torhal/Ackis are swamped with work at the moment, and don't have time to fix it for a few days.  I'd fix it, however I haven't a clue how. ;)

    In the meantime, I suggest you install Bugsack & Buggrabber so the error doesn't pop up on your screen while using the addon.

    Sorry that it's not 100% perfect for release today!

    This addon should show up under the Battle Pets section.

  • #269

    Who thx a lot man, just the addone i did not kno wi missed :D

    Really a time saver for me that just started to collect Pet andf Mounts!!

  • #267

    Thanks for the addon and updates!

    I'm curious why you haven't included a changelog for the last two updates.

    Like ChaGrin posted earlier, I like to be informed of new features, changes, bug fixes and language file updates.

    It's very convenient when even a very brief summary is included on this site.

  • #268

    The root cause of this was that 2.0.0 was a complete rewrite and there are still issues.  Technically it's probably still in beta phase but if you were to use the 1.x version it would be useless to you now.  There's been so many changes that we just didn't list them, but I can see how it helps. :)

  • #266

    Inastall 2.0.0beta3. There is no scan button in my mounts or compnaions window. Now what?

    I Love your Change Logs!!!  I can actually understand what you added/changed

    I know that sounds odd, but I work in the tech industry (as a non-Dev) and some of the unreadable/indecipherable change logs I'm required to read make me want to pull my hair out.

    Oh and thanks for the addon, am going to give it a try.

  • #263

    Love the product--Thanks You!!  

    Some things to note:  I do notice that the "Retired" filter has quite a many mounts not flagged.  I haven't gone though everything, but I did notice this immediately.   I also see that there are 282x in the database.  Actually, there are currently over 350x Mounts listed in:
