About Preform AV Enabler

A Note Regarding the 2.7x Versions

The 2.7x versions floating around are NOT official updates by the original author of this addon (me) and contain code I deem unacceptable to use. 3.04 is the official latest release of this software. You use unauthorized and illegal hacks of my work at your own risk. Do not ask me anything concerning any 2.7x version.

Addon Purpose

Preform AV Enabler allows the group/raid leader to solo queue everybody in the raid group simultaneously with a button press and to see the queue status of everyone with this addon installed for the purpose of increasing the chance of the raid getting into the same battleground.

To use, open a battlemaster window and click the Preform AV Enabler button, type /preformav, or click "Preform" on the menu that appears when right clicking the minimap battleground icon.

Version 3.04:

  • Numerous bug fixes
  • A column compaction feature has been added, and is on by default. To turn it off (or back on) type /preformav autocompact at the command line.

Version 3.03:

  • Localizations added for the new battlegrounds (untested however, some may be incorrect)
  • Should no longer conflict with the glyph UI (hopefully; it was not happening on my client)

Version 3.02:

  • Mists compatibility

Version 3.01:

  • Lots of bug fixes

Version 3.0:

  • Timers now displayed in queue status columns. The greener the color, the closer that player is to the average time.
  • Info column displaying role, resilience, and ilevel
  • Class colored player names
  • New command line options. Type /preformav ? for a list
  • Variable window update time
  • Popups altered to help prevent accidental zoning in
  • 2.x users will not be able to see the status of 3.x users, but are still controllable by the raid leader
  • French translation fix
  • Much of the base addon code refactored

Version 2.66:

  • esMX localization added and ptBR localization updated

Version 2.65:

  • WoW 4.3 Compatibility
  • ptBR Localizations added

Version 2.64:

  • toc interface number updated to 40200

Version 2.63:

  • 4.1 compatibility

Version 2.62:

  • French, German, and Spanish translations for new BGs

Version 2.61:

  • Russian translations for new BGs added
  • The button to open the Preform window is once again on the battleground selection window

Version 2.6:

  • Twin Peaks and Battle for Gilneas added
  • Number of instances total removed due to Blizzard removing that function
  • Battlemaster window status removed as they no longer exist

    Hey torrid quick question, you don't want anyone releasing a "hacked" version of preform AV. But what is your opinion of someone releasing an extra lua/xml that interacts with your mod to add functionalities? Not an alteration, just an addon of an addon.

  • #213

    Please do so!

    Ravencrest (Cyclone BG - EU), we run daily AV premades as well - always full - and as previous poster said even several AV raids at the same time. At this point unless you have a high resolution then you cant really use it ^^

    Also PLEASE make it so that you can click on the names in the list and kick them there. With a full raid of 40 ppl going several hours, it gets pretty tiresome to keep looking for the names in the list of the people who have to be kicked for joining BG's, slacking etc..

  • #212

    Alright, you've convinced me to make some sort of resizing option. I guess I didn't expect raids larger than 35 or so to be that common anymore.

  • #211

    Well, I play the game at 1024x768 resolution, and it only becomes a problem for me when the raid size grows past 35

    On my server most of the AV premades are 40 people (to allow people to "sit one out") thus size is an issue. Last night was when your update became known on our server, most of the regulars got the update and in virtually every single case the comments were
    "OMG It's HUGE"...followed by ..."How do i make it smaller?"

    I'm not sure why you would care if it does take up half the screen, as you don't intend to fight with the window up?

    More of an issue for those leading, add on frame, raid window, users normal UI setup means no space to even see the BM clearly. As to why the raid frame is open, think i see the problem in the next quote, you are not realising how much the add on has spread and how people are using it

    Although I would think that raid leaders would ask somebody's resilience and spec prior to granting a raid invite to begin with. Not to mention that I would not even expect random trade channel puggers to even have my addon installed let alone an addon to preform

    You need to visit some Euro servers then, Al'akir is generally running "trade AV premades" every night, hell sometimes 2 to 3 of them at same time

  • #215

    If anybody wants to help translate the addon to other languages, please let me know A) if you are doing so and B) when you might be finished so I know if I need to delay the next version to wait for your file or not.


  • #217

    You won't need to translate "Offline." I just fixed it to use Blizzard's translation. I missed that one when I made the localization files, apparently.

    You should be able to change the slash command by editing the PREFORM_AV_ENABLER_CMD variable.

    I'll send you a private message with my email address so you can send it to me.


  • #216

    Torrid, its nice this addon works on all BGs and my translation to korean is almost finished and I wonder how to send the locale file to you, I have a few suggestions though.

    1) I had some test with this addon, and the word 'offline' remained in english, not translated in korean.
    I think its because 'offline' is not locale-functioned in your lua file, like PREFORM_AV_ENABLER_OFFLINE, which I've never seen on my translation.
    So I suggest to add a line about translating 'offline' so that translation may be more perfect.(i think chinese will have a similar problem)
    2) I want to get your permission to add a line for a new slash command /알방(albang: means AV) for Koreans' sake, only in Korean translation, as I asked a few days ago.
    (/preformav, the original one preserved of course)
    Koreans are not so good at english than thought, that will make easier for them to enjoy this wonderful addon.

    Thx Torrid though I told about very sensitive problem which you'll have to fix your lua file code.

    You are awesome! On behalf of our Pvp guild, I 'd like to thank you for updating this mod and letting us play with friends again more efficiently. our guild morale was at an all time low a week after 2.4 and you have given myself and others a reason to play Wow again =) You rock!

    Pls keep up the great work

  • #227

    Absolutely, thanks for fixing it!

  • #224

    That looks like an error I fixed in 2.1. It appears if you come back after link death or something similar right?
