  • see skills and professions of all players
  • see the reputation of all players

Changes since v622:

Fixed: Tradeskill scanning code was using 450 as max profession level. Doesn't seem to matter.

Fixed: GuildAds allow-list was printed in random order. Now prints in alphabetical order.

(LibPeriodicTable updated. Profession view should be slightly more accurate now)

Changes since v621:

Added: Faction "Avengers of Hyjal" added.

Changes since v619:

Fixed: tradeskill link decoding data updated to patch 4.2 data.

Fixed. Updated toc to 40200 (patch 4.2) Fixed: GetItemQualityColor doesn't return "|c" prepended on the hex code for the colour. Readded to GuildAds_GetItemQualityColor.

Changes since v618:

Fixed: A part of the login protocol was mishandled and could cause otherwise working clients to wrongfully and partially disconnect from the channel, halting all GuildAds communication. Fixed: GuildAds chat is sending the messages now, but aren't received correctly (not shown to the user, i.e. the GuildAds chat isn't worth much yet). Only applicable for the guild addon channel.

Changes since v617:

Fixed: ReceivePlayerList was referencing an unknown variable and that caused unresponding players to not being marked offline. This could cause the protocol to halt.

    Profession view as this also can crash wow.
  • #956
    Ok, I am at a loss. During my search for the code that triggers the bug, the problem has resolved itself on my pc. I am now running v582 unmodified and Rune Thread causes no issues in wow at all.

    Profession and wait for it to fetch all items to see if the tooltip then can be shown without issues. This is only a guess, though.
  • #945
    Hojla, me again
    I do same experiment and find out this:
    When only GuildAdss active then if I’m trying to buy [Rune Thread] by vendor Isashi (Valley of Wisdom), program crash. If lucky i se the craft tab.

    GuildAds 2.6 rev 579 by Curse
  • #950
    Confirmed. Wow crashes instantly when mouse-over Rune Thread.

    I suggest disabling the craft tooltip to avoid instant wow crash. I'll try to debug this.
  • #951
    The fault has been located. GuildAds was trying to add too many lines to the tooltip and that apparently crashes wow. I'll put in an artificial limit (still large enough for everyone I hope).
  • #953
    can you make tooltip so:
    and so on;
    and then if you need detailed view you click on '+' to se it?
    oje, to many lines will popup!
    and what to limit it to same number and then creat a second column?
    i go to work now, by by
  • #954
    I agree that with some items too many lines are put into the tooltip and you can't get the full information. But looking on the other side, the items that are part of many recipies are so common that your hardly need the tooltip anyway (e.g. the tooltip on Runecloth is hardly needed to know if Runecloth is something of value).

    It is not possible to make an interactive tooltip as far as I know.
  • #957
    yeah, you are right, no interactive tooltip

    Night and magic Holidays
  • #947
    That sounds serious and I'll try to repeat it. Yours is the only report, though. Can you buy Rune Thread other places without issue?
  • #948
    yes, i try it by:
    Barya (The Drag) and
    Shimra (Valey of Strength),
    same, program crash. but i have a craft tab for few seconds.
  • #949
    I wonder why the craft tab shows up (is that the guildads profession view?).
  • #952
    Sorry, wrong name: not craft tab, it is a tooltip!!
  • #943
    I am in love with this addon only because i can roll my mouse over items I pick up and see what they are used for. I cant tell you how much time I use to spend finding stuff i didnt know what if it was used in anything or what prof and what make its used in. That way i know if i just picked up something that makes an epic in tailoring and LW and everything else i know what to do with the item. I dont use this at all for anything with my guild. Just love that what the hell is that i have thing :)
    just needs to be updated with the new stuff like new cloth and whats it used for and such and its perfect, i tell everyone i know to get this addon and we cant live without it now
  • #946
    Hmm GuildAds relies on a third-party library for the craft information. I guess I have to see what is going on there...
  • #944
    oops was on wrong log in. Didnt even know i had a log in for severton.
