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

    where i can get 1.3 version?

  • #171

    can anyone walk a mac-user thru my first download...things just arent working out :(

  • #172

    Hey Torrid, I used preform enabler quite heavily pre 2.4. Now that 2.4 is here a new set of problems have trained along! I hope that you can help solve these issues again.

    Premades are basically no longer viable as blizzard tightened up the queue system to ensure that premades fight against premades of equal gear! This is overkill, not only are premades fighting premades now, you have to have one in queue of similar gear. The end result of this has been queue times ranging upwards of one hour while solo queueing people get into a fight in a few minutes. I am not adverse to having a fair fight, but 1 hour is a little too much for the average wow player to stick around for when solo queueing is a 1/10th the time.

    So here is my feature request:
    Port all the preform functionality to allow group 'solo' queueing of WSG, AB,and EotS.

    I'd do this myself but it's your work and forks really are evil (the devil has one even!). Not to mention I'd do a real hack job I at this. (o:

  • #174

    Oh don't worry. I'll have curse remove it for you.

  • #173

    I have made such a recode to queue me and my friends. I'm sorry, I know it's lame but I didn't want to wait for a new version, or if you even plan to add this functionality. If you do, I promise I'll remove the fork. "Steamroller"

  • #175

    Hey Torrid. Really nice work there! :)
    I started playing WoW a few months ago and your addon turned out to be one of the most useful ones. Nevertheless it lacks the possibility to enter warsong, arathi and the eye... I modded your addon in order to make those features possible.

    I won't release it to the public though, because it's only fair that you have the last word in this matter. :) As long as I don't hear from you it will remain in my and the hands of a few trusted friends.

    Sincerly, Hyr

  • #179

    Torrid, as promised your delivered. Changing the localization is a nice simple fix. Looking at some of the stuff in there you've been naughty steam rolling pugs, haven't you?

  • #176

    I've had literally about half a dozen requests today to make this addon work for all BGs, including several who made level 1 characters on my server to speak to me. Funny how you all pick the same day. Anyway...

    The thing is, I don't much care for premade vs. pug stomps. I wish Blizzard would do more to prevent them, and I'm glad they made an effort in 2.4. However making my addon work for other BGs is somewhat trivial, so attempting to stop it would be futile to say the least. I can and will ask curse to remove forks of my work, though.

    So heres the deal. If you want to edit my addon to work for all BGs, you may so long as it STAYS PRIVATE. Keep it within your guild/friends/whatever. Do not make the link to it public. Do not upload it to addon sites.

    Because I don't want to lose control over my work, I will update my addon to work for all BGs in the future, including a major update to the status window to show the status for all BGs at once. I'm somewhat busy right now though, so this could take a week or two. In the meantime, an easy hack to make my addon work for another specific BG is to simply change the Alterac Valley variable in the localization file to another BG.

  • #178

    I can't imagine the horrors I'd have just thinking about the kinds of crap people would try to pull off in code that wasn't open. But yeah, off topic. hehe

  • #177

    Sounds reasonable to me. :) I'm looking forward to your "official" version of preformanybgenabler. ^^

    My mod will stay private.

    Too bad that WoW addons are always open source, isn't it?!

  • #182

    If you dont want people to contact you when you ASK them to, than make a way to contact you other than on a public forum IE. Via your website or a contact form.

    Huh? What are you talking about? I never said I didn't want people to contact me. And Curse does have a private messaging system btw. Not that I care about this being public.

  • #180

    **THE FIX**

    As you say, i was one of those lvl-1 characters that contacted you last night. If you dont want people to contact you when you ASK them to, than make a way to contact you other than on a public forum IE. Via your website or a contact form.

    However, This change does not take very long to make, so that you do not have to update a variable everytime you want to run a AB/EOTS/WSG/AV session.

    1. Open up the file: PreformAVEnabler.lua
    2. Do a Find And Replace On "mapName == PREFORM_AV_ENABLER_AV"
    4. This will replace it in 3 spots in the file.

    This will enable the button on all BG windows and update status
    s and such. ALSO, since it will be hard to distinguish if a user has a non altered addon, you can change the version number to 6.66 to identify the users who have access to all BG's.
    1. Open up the file: PreformAVEnabler.lua
    2. Locate "local PreformAVEnabler_Version = 1.21;"
    3. Change to "local PreformAVEnabler_Version = 6.66;"

    Your modded users will now show up as the new version number.

    Hope this saves you some time Torrid as you can make these changes yourself and post a public version if you would like.

    As per our conversation yesterday "DevTest"
    --"I am a developer by day so i understand your frustration, however, its open source, and i like to be talked to, NOT talked AT."

    The reason why queue times for premades are so long is because people stopped forming premades when they were forced to face each other. I used to run in premades myself, and we didn't dodge other premades either. Heres a tip: queue for the other battlegrounds right before entering one instead of all at once.

    Yeah, you want to fight other premades, right? You don't need honor? Is that why you called your hack job "Steamroller?"

  • #184

    Seriously, I don't. You apparently can't imagine why anyone would like to play together if it's not for grinding, which says a lot. I just want something to do with my guildies while queued for a real premade battleground. The queues are easily over an hour now, and sometimes you end up meeting randoms anyway. Mostly we do some world PvP in between, but sometimes we queue up like this. I don't have need for honor.

  • #183

    Apparently you stopped reading before finishing my post. Let me repeat myself. I am going to make a version that works for all battlegrounds soon. So, aside from you blatantly shitting all over my rights as an author, I have reason to not want to confuse users with multiple versions of MY work.

    But seriously, don't give me this "I want my opponents to have the same opportunity" crap. You know damn well all you want is to farm pugs for easy honor. When I created this addon, the Horde were getting stomped in AV due to map imbalances, the Alliance could not make much use out of this due to 1 hour queues, AV had no join as a group option at all, and premades already had an easy option to queue as a raid and stomp pugs in other BGs.
