  • Fixed a bug introduced by Blizzard with patch 5.4.1. I had to overwrite Blizzard's function C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls for doing that. Don't know what that may cause. So don't use PetBattleMaster if you are in need of parental control!

    Hi guys,

    thanks for the many reports and suggestions. I don't know yet, when I will find the time to implement them. But I will investigate at least the issues and the lock feature the next weeks/months.

  • #278

    OK, one last comment...

    Please add a team lock feature.  I can't stress enough just how much of an important feature this is.  As it is, it's way to easy to forget which team is selected and to accidentally overwrite a team.  I wouldn't worry about creating some kind of "default" team or anythig like that.  Just add a locked/unlocked flag to each team and simply do not save the current team if it is set to locked.


  • #277

    One other thing I just noticed...

    It's a very minor thing, but when I have my default Pet Journal closed, and I change teams by clicking one of the team icons below the PetBattleMaster team window, I see a very quick "flicker" on the screen.  It's just a quick flash.  Turns out that this flicker is coming from certain icons in the default Pet Journal window.  Perhaps because of the way this addon selects what pets to use in a team it has to actually open up the Pet Journal in order to interact with it. But it causes the little heart icons next to some of the pets to flicker as well as some of the actual pet icons.  Again, this only shows up for a milisecond.  But it looks "glitchy".  Maybe there's something that can be done to surpress this completely?

  • #275

    I've encountered a couple of issues with this addon's extra tooltip (the one-line tip that shows the quantity/rarity of pets you have matching the pet being examined).

    First, it seems that the tooltip is incompatible with ArkInventory.  I noticed that when I hovered over a pet in the PBM team window, I wasn't seeing the one-line tooltip for this addon. I did a one-by-one removal of addons until I found the culprit. It turned out to be ArkInventory.  go figure.  But with ArkInventory loaded, this addon's tooltip doesn't show.  When I remove ArkInventory, the one-line tooltip shows up again just fine.  This is with all other addons disabled too.

    Next, there is a tooltip collision with another addon called "Battle Pet BreedID".  PetBattleMaster's tooltip is displayed in the same exact anchor spot as Battle Pet BreedID.  The two addons need to be able to figure out how to coexist and have the tooltips live side-by-side.

    FYI, I just disabled this addon's tooltip.  Since I had ArkInventory fully enabled, it does the same functionality of showing me which pets I already own and what their rarities are.  ArkInventory has the advantage of showing this info in the existing pet tooltip rather than appending an additional stand-alone tooltip to it.  So thanks for making this tooltip an optional feature.

    I do have one suggestion for this addon though.  In the team manager, when I create a team, it requires that I pick an icon for the team.  Is this really necessary?  How about just getting rid of the icon altogether and just show one of the actual pets in the team as its icon?.

    Please, add text comment memo for each creating pet-group and show it in pet-battle. It need for writing tacktiks.

    I would love to see a Team-Lock, too...

    Way too easy to accidentially swap Pets...

  • #272

    How do i lock the teams?

    It's too easy to screw them up now, making this addon rather useless.

  • #269

    Can you add a feature to show/hide the "Pet Manager"?  Somewhere on the mounts/pets/collections window, a button I can click to hide the sidebar pet manager. 

    I don't need to see my pet teams when viewing mounts or the toybox.  Also, even when looking at pets, I sometimes don't need to see the teams.  So it would be very helpful to on-demand hide this side frame.  I know it can be disabled in your addon's preferences, but a more nimble UI control would be helpful.

  • #271

    Hi charleslaine,

    would make perfect sense, I will see if I find the time to add it.


  • #265

    PetBattleMaster initially shows 'Missing pet. Go and catch it!' for every pet I mouse over. Even if I have a copy of that pet summoned. Sometimes it stays like this, sometimes it updates after several seconds.

  • #270


    I will have a look at it. But currently I'm very busy, so it will take some time.

  • #268

    I see this too.  In the tooltip it always says in red text "Missing companion"

  • #266

    Even if the 'Missing Pet' message goes away, no matter what I try, I cannot get PBM to show the info about my owned pets in the tooltip.

  • #267

    I'm having the same problem.
