    Did you pick a sound effect to use? This addon doesn't embed any sounds, but it can use sound effects bundled with other installed addons.

  • #105

    With the current version of the addon, you need other addons that register sounds with LibSharedMedia in order to have anything available in LFG Call to Arms Broker. When I have the time I hope to provide a list of built-in sounds, but I don't have any at the moment.

  • #100

    As a tank this addon is very helpful to seize the opportunity for extra goodies so I thank you for creating it!  I've looked in the comments on this page about inserting a sound file so that you have an audial notification when yuor CtA is available but I'm not sure how to do this myself.  Could you create a step-by-step walkthrough of how to do it or include a sound file in the next release?

  • #93

    Is there a way to add my own sound to this when the call to arms pops up it'll play that sound?

    Really rather not download another addon just for sounds.

  • #94

    Unfortunately the only way to add sounds is to include them into an addon. But maybe there's some way I can let you modify the addon to include extra sounds. Unfortunately I think doing that would at a minimum require editing a lua file, not just dropping them in (since I'm pretty sure WoW doesn't have a way to inspect the filesystem of the addon).

  • #99

    Hehe...wouldn't call it clever. Lucky maybe. Just chose the right line.

    Hope this helps. :)


  • #98

    Oh, you just sidestepped LibSharedMedia entirely. Clever.

  • #97

    I removed this line: PlaySoundFile(LSM:Fetch("sound", self.db.profile.soundKey), channel)
    Replaced it with: PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Creature\\Illidan\\BLACK_Illidan_04.wav")

    Honestly didn't think it would work at first...but sure enough...when CTA popped I heard it.

  • #96

    Sure thing. What did you do? My understanding is a lua addon has to register the sound explicitly, even if it's a built-in sound.

  • #95

    Quick google search...and boom. Found a way to do it.

    Just tested it out and worked as soon as a Call to Arms popped up. With your permission I can let people know how to do it. Saw there was a few other requests.

    NOTE: I used a sound file that exists in WoW (YOU ARE NOT PREPARED -Illidan)

    Tnx for a great addon!

    It's been working great until MoP-patch, but now im getting this error, any ideas?

    I have downloaded the latest verson..

    Message: ...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:20: Cannot find a library instance of "AceGUI-3.0". Time: 08/31/12 19:10:43 Count: 1 Stack: [C]: in function `error' ...\AddOns\LFGCallToArmsBroker\libs\LibStub\LibStub.lua:38: in function `LibStub' ...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:20: in main chunk

    Locals: (*temporary) = "Cannot find a library instance of "AceGUI-3.0"."


  • #90

    Did your set of addons change with MoP (e.g. no longer loading out-of-date addons or something)? It's possible that there's an ordering issue with the dependent library loads that only shows up if this is the only (or first) Ace3 addon, but I would have expected to hear about this sooner if this is the case.

    Does installing Ace3 directly through Curse cause the problem to go away?

  • #92

    Glad to hear it. I also put out 1.0.1a3 which reoders the Ace3 dependencies and hopefully fixes your problem.

  • #91

    Yes, this is the only Ace3 addon.

    Problem solved by downloading Ace3 from curse

    Thanks for the help!

  • #84

    This appears to be broken in 5.0.4.  Any chance of an update?
