    Thanks for the addon, it's very useful :)

    Just one issue, if I disable the keybinding helper text in tooltip, there is still a separation bar ( (In fact, this bar is always present, and when the keybinding helper text is on, this bar is just below the last sentence). I've searched in the PetBattleTeams/modules/Tooltip.txt a way to disable this, but without success. Somebody can help me ?

  • #941

    open PetBattleTeams\modules\Tooltip.lua and find the line


    add the following line above it



  • #938

    This is the best addon in WoW IMHO, I would gladly donate to the creator for keeping this addon updated. 

  • #936 that this seems to be being developed again...would it be possible to add a feature that lets you reorganize your teams?  Just up/down bars on each team to reorder them would be amazing.

  • #937

    100% agree with this proposed change.

  • #940

    Control + drag the team you want to reorganize ;)

  • #931

    No official word, but this point (April 2015) it's looking like this addon may not be updated.

    To continue using Pet Battle Teams I suggest you make the change per the April 8 post by beamrgurl (below).  That should get it working - it did for me and many other folks. When the next Blizzard patch comes (6.2) PBT may break again, or may continue working.  It all depends on what the BlizzDevs change next. 

    And those who complain about lack of updates do realize that addon authors are generally not paid, right?   We're lucky that people spend weeks/months of their free time to create them.

    Would have been happy to, but the author here hasn't given means to do so through a donate button.

  • #930

    will this addon be updated to work with version 6.1.2?

  • #929


    The workaround work, but this cannot be the general sense of it. Plus: because there are so many pet-teams, the overview has gone.

    Another tool in this things is better - Rematch. 1st it seems not so nice as PBT (docking at windows), but some time later the work with it is much fine. AND it has an importfunction for the PBT-Teams !!!

    You can group then and the description can be much longer as in PBT.

    PBT lost of missing support. And one day it will not work any longer ...

  • #928

    yeah mine hasn't worked at all since the WoD release either. I tried resetting it, reattaching it, detaching it and whatever else except for editing the LUA which I'm not going to do because it obviously just needs to be updated to work with the new expansion. Been waiting for it to get updated the whole time and it still hasn't been. I'm not going to uninstall it just in case it does eventually get updated I'll still have my teams saved for it, but I am going to disable it and try another one I found called Pet Party for those of you that might also want to try that out. It has at least been updated during WoD so hopefully it'll work. I agree with everyone here though. It would've been nice if THIS addon had been updated so we wouldn't lose all our saved pet teams.

  • #924

    it stoped working as of the relese of WOD... wish it was fixed

  • #923

    very dissappointed to see how this addon seems to be basically abandoned... its an amazing addon (and idea), but noone seems to be even trying to update it (or answer any of the 2 dozen tickets for it ...)...

    need some awesome addon author to come along and take this up, updating it (to fix the issues) and add in some basic functionality (like group folders and list order editing...)


  • #922

    This was my favorite Pet Battle add-on.  Unfortunately, I have tried all the "work arounds" to no avail…I cannot get it to even be recognized.  I am thoroughly disgusted by the apparent lack of interest by the author to fix it where it will work without jumping through hoops.  I am going to uninstall this add-on and try to find another that will work for me.  Maybe one day the author will "un-abandon" this one and FIX it.

  • #933

    You do realise addons are made by joe player who wants something to work the way they like it and are nice enough to share with others. Its not thier job. they make no money at it and normally when people stop playing wow for what ever reason the addon gets abandoned.  Yes it was a favorite of mine also. I just did the work around like the one lady said a simple search and replace and it works great again.
