About Glamour

5.4 update pending

I have been away from WOW for some time but am now working to resolve the issues with my addons. This one in particular is a large project as Blizzard made significant changes to the code base it relies on when MOP was introduced. It therefore required a complete rewrite to get working properly again.

BETA STATUS

This project has reverted back to a beta status since 5.0.4. The addon still works as a library for addons which call it for custom alerts and Seems todo okay with normal achievement alerts but there are some issues that i'll be working to resolve over time when I can. If you do not subscribe to using beta software, I would ask you opt out of using Glamour at this time.

BUG REPORTS

Please report all bugs on the Glamour CuseForge website here: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/glamor/tickets/

  • Please include the names of any/all other Achievement related addons had enabled at the time of the error.

Glamour

Glamour is a stand-alone replacement for the default Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. It currently offers the following improvements over the Blizzard built-in alert interface:

  • draggable anchor for relocating where your achievements are shown on your screen.
  • increases the amount of alerts from 2 to 24 allowing your screen to really pop when you fire multiple achievements together.
  • adds the ability to instantly hide an alert frame by right-clicking it.
  • left-clicking the alert frame will now open the achievement interface without closing all other open windows.
  • Captures Blizzard Achievement Alerts (Personal and Guild)
  • Captures Blizzard Dungeon Completion Alerts
  • Captures Blizzard battle.net Toast Alerts
  • Full set of slash commands to operate and test alerts.

In addition Glamour allows other addons to send customized alerts to its' frame, mirroring the fun and attention grabbing nature of the original Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. I created this interface to have a shared frame to hold alerts for when multiple addons fire alerts together. Developers are welcome to plugin to the alert interface for their own addons as well.

Suggested Addons

For an example of addons that utilize this interface see:

    I keep getting a Faction standing downgrade popup every time I turn a quest in, not sure what is causing it, I use Titan Rep as well, which has a glamour plugin or w/e.
  • #36
    This was a bug in Titan Reputation which should be fixed in its latest version as of yesterday. Thanks for the reports.
  • #35
    I have the same problem after gquit and it spam my screen every time when i enter game/instance. It is really annoying hope there will be a fix soon
  • #34
    I am also having this issue even after the update today, and it's getting really irritating. It's also happening whenever I get an HK, so as you can imagine there is a ton of Glamour spam when in a BG which can sometimes cause my UI to be completely unusable. I liked Glamour, but since it still hasn't been fixed I honestly wish I could disable it from my other Titan plugins. Unfortunately there's some weird co-dependency thing going on that I think the other developers should STOP.
  • #33
    & questGuru I just found has it as well. Not sure where the popup is coming from, it only displays guild rep - downgraded, which isn't happening.
  • #31
    Hello, is there an chance you could make the update needed to bring this to 4.1? As it is showing up as being out of date.

    Thanks.

    BUG!

    Having some mass-problems with glamour when people on my battle.net real id friendlist come on or go offline! Here one of several error messages:

    Message: Interface\AddOns\Glamour\Glamour.lua:600: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
    Time: 04/11/11 20:00:03
    Count: 7

    Locals: forceAnchor = true

    Are you running a non-english client?
    Are you running any other addons that interact with battle.net users?

    Does glamour seem to function normally with the setting to caputre battle.net toast frame disabled?
  • #25
    Are you running a non-english client?

    Sure

    Are you running any other addons that interact with battle.net users?

    Not sure, dont think so, but i think the addon which is making trouble with yours is this one:
    http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/phpraider-viewer.aspx
    As the error only occurs while raiding or raid-invite is running (as it is active during the whole raidtime.

    Does glamour seem to function normally with the setting to caputre battle.net toast frame disabled?

    Yes, its even working fine when phpraidviewer is NOT active and inviting for raid.
  • #23
    Seems to function well when the Battle.net feature is disabled. Noticed that when you disable the feature and click ok, it works during the entire course of the season. Next time you log in, the error reproduces, as well as the other issues. Checking the settings, the battle.net frame shows up as enabled again.

    Haven't tried yet, but will see if it requires a UI reload like the other features to save the settings. At this time, it doesn't seem to save it using the typical enable/disable checking and clicking OK on the interface config panel.
  • #24
    Well no dice, the other issues still reproduce, but at least the battle.net saving problem is solved.

    You have to select the reloadui option before clicking ok, otherwise the settings are not saved when you log out. Maybe make a notice to remind users to do this, or have it check the reloadui option automatically when you make any config changes.
  • #26
    Thanks for all your input, I'll be working on Glamour next time I get some free time from my job. Hopefully this week. Your responses are both thorough and enlightening and I should be able to come up with a solution when time permits.
  • #28
    Thanks! Cant wait for a fix, those errors are annoying :P
  • #20
    termx187: I've moved the contents of your error report into the curseforge ticket interface here:
    http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/glamor/tickets/1-glamour-odd-behavior/
    There was just too much data overwhelming this comments page and the curseforge ticketing system is a much better place to handle the discussion.
  • #19
    I'll do some testing to try and duplicate these issues. I haven't had much time to work on this lately. But I'll try to narrow down the problems. If you experience issues, error text is always helpful. Also, if your running any other "achievement" type addons that interact with the blizzard achievement alerts. It would be nice to know which so I can test them as well. Thanks for the continued support.
