About MinimapTarget

Out of combat, right-click on minimap blips to open a targeting menu. This is intended to be used by those classes with tracking capabilities, like hunters and feral druids in cat form. Just to be clear: this cannot work in combat.

MinimapTarget comes with an MinimapTarget_Decorator, an optional module that adds class, level and reaction information to player and pet menu entries. Data are passively gathered from guild roster, party/raid roster, battleground scoreboard and when the mouse hovers over characters and unit frames. This module can be safely disabled at character selection screen.

Please report any issue using the wowace ticket tracker. Please actually check existing tickets to avoid creating duplicate ones. Please include detailed description of the issue, including were you where, what you wanted to target, and if you were using a minimap addon. Also make sure you enabled Lua error reports and are reporting any error message related to MinimapTarget.

    So i guess just like all the other awesome minimap targeting addons, this one has come to an end, as the developer isn't responding anymore.

    Works Everywhere Except Battlegrounds

    This mod is working everywhere except Battlegrounds.  In a BG, you can still right click the blip and see the names but when you try and click on the name, it will not target - period.  Also I've encountered what is possibly an incompatibility error with another mod.

    Apparently, I have two mods not playing nice with each other.  MinimapTarget and Chinchilla.  I'm posting this on both.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?  Thanks in advance.

    The indicators that show if a target is below or above you are messing with this addon.


    They're new indicators introduced in patch 4.3

  • #47

    Can this addon be fixed? Thx

  • #46

    I just tried it again without Chinchilla minimap and Carbonite to make sure they were not conflicting. Still the same.

    Inside this BG, I could only target 2 friendly targets out of 15. I could taget friendly pets fine too it seems.

    I could not target any enemy players except their pets.

  • #48

    Is there any common pattern about the player you can target and those you cannot ? Like their name containing non-ASCII characters or player from other realms ? Also does it work outside of BGs ?

    Not working for me. Can't target in BG's.

  • #44

    Any useful input ? Does it work outside of BG ? Are you using some addon that modifies the minimap tooltip ? Does the tooltip or player names contain anything more that names ? Does it fail with all players or only players from other realms ? Does the menu open at all ? Any error messages ?

    Sorry, I should have known better.

    I'm Ali and it does work on friendly players in SW. It did work there before this update.

    When I get in any BG, I can click on the name of a horde, but it will not target them.

    I dont' use any mod that modifies the minimap tooltip. I do use Carbonite and Chinchilla minimap. MM target has always worked fine with those. I don't modify tracking dots.

    There are no error messages.

    Patch 4.3 has broken this addon, please fix!

  • #39

    Anyone know how to fix this?

  • #40

    It looks like it's caused because of the new system on minimaps that shows when a target is above you or below you.

  • #36
    It lets me acquire targets that are inside buildings or caves, but nothing outside.
