    Also what happened to the module Clickzone? Is the Clickzone even changeable?

  • #80

    Can I change the type of nameplates (stacking/overlapping/spreading) depending on conditions? Or atleast depending on friendly/enemy unit.

  • #79

    Hi
    How do I set it, spells black list?
    I do not want to show everything.

  • #78

    To everyone who wants to let me know something:

    Curse doesn't notify me about comments anymore (for some unknow reason)

    Please send me PMs instead of comments, so I won't miss out your words. 

    Thanks :)

     

  • #76

    How do i set up condition for nameplate when enemy is attacking me ?

    (as i play tank it's very usefull to be able to set different looks for nameplates of those who attacking me and those who doesn't  - making way easier to gather groups of ads)

    something like base idea of this addon:
    http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/tidy-plates-threat-plates 

  • #77

    Sorry I didn't check comments recently and curse doesn't email me :(

    Next time please send me PMs

    And I'll work on it right now

  • #74

    I send to you Private messages about Coalesced Realm player Error with YouTube.

    I hope  you check it.

  • #75

    It's weird Curse doesn't always notify me about comments ,but sometime it does, for unkown reason

    I'll check them as often as I can remember...

  • #72

    1. I think you did't read my another reply. File link still alive.
     Anyway, here is koKR.lua file for ver 2013.11.5
     You need to find and click 'to Download' button at link page.

     http://rapidshare.com/share/AF82921584D6AB73E10B500D604610A8

    2. WOW is forced to shut down, when font 'Render mode" change to 'Mono'. This is serious.
     (Resources Lib - Font Lib - some profile - Render mode)
     This problem occurs only koKR wow client,whether that occurs in all places and can not be sure.

    3. When I click ' Resources Lib - Font Lib - Generate' button, Shows an error message
     Perhaps the problem seems to be related to fonts.
    -----------------------
    Message: Interface\FrameXML\UIParent.lua:3115: bad argument #1 to 'pairs' (table expected, got nil)

    Thx for fix koKR font problem,

     

     

  • #73

    1.Got it, will be in next version.

    2&3. I'll look into it, hopefully fix them in next version

    And thank you for helping me improving this addon. :)

     

     

  • #69

    Is it possible to switch off the NPC Nameplates ?

    Regards kapkron.

  • #71

    Blizzard won't allow a total off, it will always be clickable,

    But can make it look like off:

    1.at NPA2->Nameplate->Appearance, Create a empty profile with nothing in it

     

     2.at NPA2->Nameplate->Condition ,Create a filter, set all NPC using the empty profile created at 1

    Make sure this condition is on high priority

    Then all NPC nameplates will look like nothing

  • #64

    I'm in the very early stages of setting up NPA2. Currently it looks like this when I log in: 

    http://i.imgur.com/WAd0tiV.jpg

    and like this after I have those nameplates leave and reenter my screen:

    http://i.imgur.com/Lhu7tH7.jpg

    Do you know what's happening here?

  • #65

    That...doesn't look like NPA2 at all...I've no idea what happened

  • #70

    I don't know how you set it, does this happen on default profile?
