  • If you can craft a reagent needed by a recipe, then clicking on that reagent will take you to its recipe (same features as Reverse Engineering.
  • Queued items are saved when you log out and are restored on log in
  • If the item to be crafted requires a minimum level to use, that level can be displayed along with the recipe (disabled by default)

  • Complete or mostly complete localizations for deDE, esES, frFR, ruRU, koKR, zhCN, zhTW.

  • #247
    Please update this addon. I'm using ATSW right now but prefer Skillet.
  • #246
    Please update this wonderful addon.
  • #244
    Please update it for 4.0.1 It's my favorite addon.
  • #241
    Yes, skillet is broken for 4.0.1, it starts draining massive amounts of memory and lowers my fps by about 2/3rds.
  • #239
    Any word on a good replacement for this Amazing add-on now that it is broken in 4.0.1?
  • #243
    ATSW is working just fine for me. I do a lot of auctions and so far, I have had no problems with it.
  • #240
    ATSW is ok, and updated to 4.0.1
  • #242
    ATSW causes frequent freezes and crashes.

    Its better to use the default blizzard trade skill window.
  • #245
    It's preferable to have Skillet, though. ATSW, while nice, doesn't offer the in-depth queuing that Skillet offers. I'd go as far as to say that the only similarity is that they have the double-pane view. Other than that, ATSW is just a sparkly version of the blizzard TSW.

    Dear Author,

    I want to be able to resize my tooltip. because i shrink my UI to the max the tooltip seems to be super tiny. Is there anything i can do to resize this by myself editing the LUA code for the time being?

    Thank you

  • #236
    Here is a fix for this anoying bug:

    Insert this lines:
    local skill_style_type = {
    ["unknown"] = { r = 1.00, g = 0.00, b = 0.00, level = 5, alttext="???", cstring = "|cffff0000"},
    ["optimal"] = { r = 1.00, g = 0.50, b = 0.25, level = 4, alttext="+++", cstring = "|cffff8040"},
    ["medium"] = { r = 1.00, g = 1.00, b = 0.00, level = 3, alttext="++", cstring = "|cffffff00"},
    ["easy"] = { r = 0.25, g = 0.75, b = 0.25, level = 2, alttext="+", cstring = "|cff40c000"},
    ["trivial"] = { r = 0.50, g = 0.50, b = 0.50, level = 1, alttext="", cstring = "|cff808080"},
    ["header"] = { r = 1.00, g = 0.82, b = 0, level = 0, alttext="", cstring = "|cffffc800"},

    at the beginnig of the file Interface\AddOns\Skillet\UI\MainFrame.lua

    For Example I put it behind this line:
  • #234
    Does this version work properly with the glypher "get profitable" functions? Glypher creates the list, but clicking the add to skillet button results in "Skillet detected but is not Lilsparky's clone of Skillet". I am using r167
  • #232
    I used this addon like 2 years ago. Now I want it back again, but I cannot get this skillet window to replace my blizzard tradeskill window. Anyone know why this skillet is just not popping up?
    ps. Vennren's solution didn't work for me.
