The Poisoner Minimap Menu can be toggled while inCombat.

To do so, you have to click the FreeButton or use the keybinding which can be set via the WoW keybinging menu.

The MinimapButton (LDBIcon) can NOT toggle the Menu while in combat.

Poisoner is enabled by default for Rogues, and disabled by default for all other classes.

    Do you have WoW set to force the loading of out of date addons? If not then perhaps Poisoner simply isn't being loaded when you login.
  • #54
    Just an FYI for those of you who use the russian client, there is now a working localization file available on wowinterface

    One of the community managed to get it working and has been gratious enough to upload the file for everyone else.
  • #53
    Moosish: It is possible to make the menu popup and auto hide while in and out of combat, the problem is time, for the past couple of months and currently I've been extremely busy in RL that I just dont have the time, alot of the older sections of code need rewriting for the current API.

    Metalronin: What you would be asking for is an auto-switching combat bar? if so then thats not possible as blizzard prevent addons and macros from automatically changing stuff ie the user HAS to initiate the action with a click or button press thus there are already a plethora of macros around that will change bars for ya on a button press. If not an auto combat bar then you would be asking for a secondary action bar for yer stealth skills - use an action bar addon like dominos/bartender/macaroon they'll do it much better for ya and are already available.
  • #52
    Just some possible suggestions:(I LOVE this AddOn!)
    -Is there a way to allow use of the AddOn during combat? (or is that part of Blizzard's crusade against creating frames while in combat?).
    -Also, is it possible to make the menu disappear after finishing applying a poison?

    Thanks again! Great AddOn!
  • #50
    Hey does anyone know if there is a mod like this for use when a rogue goes into shadow dance that would be great....Silentdave have you considered this?
  • #51
    I dont quite get what ya mean.. are you thinking along the lines of producing a seperate action bar? for when ShD is active?
  • #49
    Awesome add on. I use it alot.
  • #48
    I got the minimap icon but clicking on it doesnt do anything - the list of available poisons doesnt appear doesnt matter how many times i click on it... My guess is that the addon doesnt work correctly with the localised names of poisons (i am using a RU client).
  • #47
    Would be perfect if it could show on FuBar. Thanks!
  • #46
    westsidemvp, ya got a new message on wowinterface ;)
  • #45
    yeah thats being worked on deadlycuts ;), 3.0 broke it, my initial thing was to get the basics of the addon working again, next up is a rewrite of the older portions of code such that its 100% 3.0 stuff so that things like popup/hide work :), my problem atm is finding the time, got an extremely busy RL atm :(
  • #44
    great addon.
    But in 3.01.1 i must click on minimap button to show available poisons. in older versions i just move my mouse on poisoner button and it shows me all my poisons w/o clicking on button. So can you make it optional (clicking on button/ w\o clicking on buton) if it takes not a lot of time? =)
    Thank you =)
  • #39
    just a refresher: poisoner is called "Posioner 3" on wowinterface
  • #38
    KhumbuRi - the problem you have is most likely caused by another addon, Poisoner is very sensitive to addons that try to control the minimap buttons eg spartanui, minimapbuttonbag (aka mbb). I know thats not an ideal answer, but in the absense of mass reports and that i myself use the english client with no problems, that suggest that the problem is external to both the client and poisoner thus another addon.

    Westsidempvp - that reply below should have had the following info:

    russian client = 100% use of russian language only = poisoner just needs localising to russian.

    go into poisoner's directory and make a copy of the file "localisation.lua" and rename the copy accordingly (you can see other language files present).

    edit your new file with any text editor - you're looking for all the words inside the speech marks only, you must not translate the LUA code itself.

    additionally do not change some of the symbology withint the speech marks such as %w+ or .* or ^(%d+) and finally %s*([IVX]*).

    please note that the string field %s*([IVX]*) is purely the roman numeral system it recognizes those, if in russian they are different then please modify the characters inside the sqr brackets accordingly (the I V X).

    once happy, save all changes and edit poisoner.xml.

    At the top you can see several script file=blah blah lines, the last of those has file="poisoner.lua", you want to include your file before the poisoner.lua line, simply copy-paste one of the others and modify it accordingly, save that and try it out.

    if it works (which it should), drop me a line on wowinterface and i'll get the localization file off you and incorporate or you can add it there as an optional file and i'll throw up a quick DIY guide for it.

    Thanks SilentDave, Its working now. Unloaded ALL other addons and it still did not work. Deleted the saved variables and it still did not work. Deleted the addon completely and reinstalled - WORKED. Must have been some rubbish in the addon folder I guess. Thanks for your prompt responses.
