    There is still a problem with the latest version. It almost freezes the game every time you open the profession frame or switch between professions when it is open. It is especially bad with professions with a lot of recipes like LW and JC. I have a feeling it has something to do with the ReagentLink workaround. Having Lil Sparkys Workshop also installed makes the problem even worse.

    Seems like a re-factor of the code is in order since the Blizzard UI opens instantly. There shouldn't be such a huge penaltly to use Skillet/LSW. They are invaluable but almost unusable in their current state.

  • #675

    You are right, there is still performance issue, because blizzard made a bug in one of the API functions, which was used to get reagents. And we have replaced this function with a workaround which is much slower. So right now there is no real solution for the problem, we have only a workaround with worse performance.

  • #674

    I also discovered  there are a few issues with the newest version of Skillet.  I was scrolling through my Jewelers list and boom it errors and poof everything but what is currently in the window pain is gone.  Can't scroll anymore either.  Also I noticed a slight lag when changing between professions. Then sometime later i get another error that says You can't do that right now, when I try to re-open my profession window again on my Jeweler character but it also occured on my Alchemist.

  • #672

    Is there a way to access skillet without accessing a profession first?  Maybe a mini-map icon?  Command line?  Thanks.


  • #671

    Thank you!

  • #670

    I have fixed the issue with memory allocation. Get the newest version ASAP.

    Same as everyone else Skillet breaks WoW at the moment.

  • #668

    Same as  others, Skillet is killing performance.  I queued 8 bolts of Windwool Cloth and before it could finish, I got the following error:

    Message: memory allocation error: block too big
    Time: 03/06/13 18:09:13
    Count: 1
    Stack: [C]: ?
    [C]: ?

    Interface\AddOns\Skillet\SkilletData.lua:1575: in function `RescanTrade'

    ...ce\AddOns\Skillet\Libs\AceTimer-3.0\AceTimer-3.0.lua:41: in function <...ce\AddOns\Skillet\Libs\AceTimer-3.0\AceTimer-3.0.lua:36>

    Eventually, the game crapped out with (ever increasing count of errors):

    Message: memory allocation error: block too big
    Time: 03/06/13 18:10:52
    Count: 1767
    Stack: [C]: ?
    [C]: in function `SetScript'
    Interface\AddOns\Quartz\modules\Tradeskill.lua:63: in function <Interface\AddOns\Quartz\modules\Tradeskill.lua:41>

    Could there be a conflict between Skillet and Quartz?

  • #667

    I had a nil error for the call to FixedGetTradeSkillReagentItemLink() at 1093. I was able to fix it by moving the function definition before the first reference. I also opened a ticket.

  • #666

    Having same issues as others have reported. Upon opening Skillet my game comes to a total freeze, and loosens up after a few seconds. If I then try to craft something, it freezes again.

    Using latest version (2.41)

  • #665

    Previous version: Clicking the button for a tradeskill instantly opened the window with the appropriate tradeskill selected. Occasionally (when first loading a given character's tradeskills and inventory, I think?) it took just a second for the tradeskill window to populate with lists of skills and craftable counts, during which there was no perceptable framerate loss or lag.

    This version: with all other addons disabled, clicking any tradeskill window causes a full-game freeze for about a second before the tradeskill window opens at all. Super annoying, but probably still less annoying than having to go dig for "bolts of ______" to manually check before being able to plan crafting counts. Please fix!

  • #664

    Even without the window open it seems to be causing a drag on my framerate. This is after updating to the newest version available.

  • #663

    updated to the new version but still lagging my game out big style

  • #662

    I have just relased a new version working in 5.2 - thanks for Speedwaystar and sapu94, who provided a quick fix.

  • #661

    for those comfortable with editing Lua files, I've provided a temporary fix here:
