    Re: PetBattle Teams Issue

    The last two days I've had issues with the Teams not functioning properly, yet it doesn't give me any error messages.   It won't let me add teams sometimes or if it lets me add a new team then when I click on the team slot to star it, it won't let me put any pets into that starred slot for the new team.  Has anyone else mentioned these issues?  I've not changed anything with my Battle Pets so am confused why it started acting up suddenly. :(

  • #966

    Was good while it lasted, I use Rematch now which can import your petbattle teams.

  • #967

    First of all, thank you for making and maintaining this addon, it is much appreciated.

    I have two suggestions:

    1/ Since it is a limitless number of teams addon, would it be possible to have a search function merged into it somehow as it can be quite hard at times finding the right team since it doesnt sort alphabetically.

    2/ How about adding Safari Hat next to the bandages and healbutton? Possibly auto Safari Har since the addon 'Safari Hat' isnt getting more updates.

    One point of critisicm (forgive me) - It is very hard to see some of the longer team names, would it be possible to make a bit more space between the teams? Just one extra line would be great as  some of the custom teamnames you'll only see the second line after the name has been broken into two lines but the spread between the names has not increased.

    Sorry about my english, feel free to /poke me if you want bit more clarity.

  • #969

    I second the request for a search function...or at least sort functionality (alphabetic).  Much too difficult to find created teams


  • #965

    There is now a supported replacement for Pet Battle Teams.

  • #963

    Can someone please let me know, if at all possible, what file the teams are stored in?

    I got a new computer and I really dont want to make 26 teams all over again.


    please, and thank you

  • #964

    Assuming you are on a PC running Windows and the game is installed in something like 'C:\Program Files\Blizzard\World of Warcraft' then the teams should be in a file called 'PetBattleTeams.lua' in 'C:\Program Files\Blizzard\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<your account name>\SavedVariables'. Copy this file to exactly the same folder on your new computer.

    The settings for all of your addons are saved in the WTF folder, so copying the files from there to your new computer should allow you to transfer all your settings. If you want to play very safe, don't copy the '' file from 'WTF' folder itself, as this can contain some hardware-specific settings.

    Is there anything that can be done for when clicking on "The Beakinator" PBT automatically chosing the team "Aki the Chosen"? (I have teams for both, but Aki is preferred for some reason). Other than trying to be fast and confuse the add-on? :)

  • #960

    logged in today to find all of my team icons replaced with ?'s. cannot click them or get them back. PLEASE somebody help me get my teams back. reset WoW, reload addon, reload addon ui, all have done nothing.

  • #961

    From Interface>Addons menu, Select Pet Battle Teams and Below there's an option to "Reconstruct Teams". If they're showing as "?" the info is there and this option will bring your teams back. I also have had an heart attack when I first had that :D

    3.2.9 not saving pet team changes

    Could you increase the space between lines or widen the frame so that you can see the whole names when it is attached, or am I missing an option for doing so?


  • #957

    After installing this and using it for a few days, I found a couple of things which 'may' be bugs or just over-sights.

    1. I've tried but, I cannot figure out why the pet teams LOSE the choices I made for their individual skills (3-out-6 choices). For some bizzarre reason, once the teams are created, their skills revert to default settings instead of the ones I chose for them. Very frustrating to start a battle then have to resign, heal my pets, fix all 3 of them in my main display (since there is no way to get "drop-down" choices while they are located in the teams column) -- then, I have to restart the battle and hope it doesn't lost my settings again!

    2. When I <Ctrl>drag and try to drop a team, the addon won't allow me to drop it anywhere except at the top or the bottom of the teams list. In other words, I can't drag into the middle of the teams list.

    Other than those 2 or 3 issues, I truly like the concept and most of the functionality of this addon! I just wonder why he built it, presented it here on Curse, then disappeared and no longer fixes it. I can say the same thing about PetJournal Enhanced. It, too, really needs some minor fixing up. I'll just keep hoping, since there is no other addon I know of that is similar to this one.

  • #955

    Love your addon but I've got this annoying problem with the way the lists works when its longer than the frame height. Please give us an option to sort teams by alphabetical order. The click and drag option is not very useful when you can drag higher than the top of the frame. Im sure Im not the only one that has more than 1 page of teams (I have 80+ teams). Thanks! 

  • #956

    I agree. Sorting a-z would be awesome!
