    Hiya and thanks for a great addon.

    I have a feature request, could you add support for mats that's in the Guildbank ?
    Like how many one could make if one had the mats from guildbank+(inv+bank).
  • #206
    I'm currently using the latest Alpha version of Skillet from WoWAce, and it was working fine until I updated to the latest LSW. Basically when I go to click on an item, the window's contents stop responding. I can't click on the bar, it actually looks like the entire 'line' has shifted to the right.

    From BugSack:

    1x Skillet-1.10-LS-163\UI\MainFrame.lua:1433: attempt to index global 'color' (a function value)

    self = SkilletScrollButton5 {
    highlight = SkilletScrollHightlight5 {}
    locked = true
    rawIndex = 5
    0 =
    skill = {}
    index = 5
    motion = false

    locked = true
    rawIndex = 2
    0 =
    skill = {}
    index = 2
    motion = true

    locked = true
    rawIndex = 1

    skill = {}
    index = 1
    motion = true

  • #207
    that looks like r163. see if it happens with r166.

    it's weird, tho, that it's looking for a global variable called "color".

    okay, i see the problem. uncomment out line 1430 (remove the "--"). if the variable "color" is not defined in the global space, then no error would occur. it looks like something is defining it as a function somewhere which is also bad. i'll check lsw to see if that's what's doing it since you mention you just updated it. any other mods updated recently?
  • #212
    AVR Encounters defines a function color in its options code.
  • #215
    thanks for finding that.
  • #209
    I thought you meant skillet.lua, but there's no line 1430 in that file. Which file did you mean?
  • #210
  • #211
    Changed it and it just gave me more errors. Different errors.
  • #208
    The following were also updated:
    Aloft, AloftCastBars, AVR, Grid, GatherMate_Data, Chinchilla, ArkInventory

    Haven't tried the uncomment out line yet, doing so now.
  • #204
    I'm not sure if my situation is rare or not but I am using Skillet with 3.3.3 with no problems. I had to edit the .toc file to change the version number from 30000 to 30300 but otherwise I've had no issues with it. I'm using it with Lil Sparky's Workshop so maybe that makes a difference? Hope this helps.
  • #203
    Any good replacements for Skillet? I can't log in on any toon now since 3.3.3 launched with this mod enabled.
  • #202
    Skillet is all freaked out for me after the patch... after I enable "load out-of-date add-ons", the Skillet window comes up, but it contains no recipes, no glyphs, books, nothing. Empty.

    Any chance of fixing it in the near future?
  • #200
    No real update in over a year - not even a beta for over 6 months. Still trying to get a hold of lilsparky, but I've put in a request to take over this addon. It's far too awesome to let waste away.
  • #205
    you've tried to get ahold of me?

    i'm actually at work on my replacement for skillet. for the most part, skillet should still work fine. most of the problems people report are simply issues with a patch clearing the local cache which makes trade skills take a moment to come across to your client.

    there are also a few random nil errors that crop up, but by and large it's stable.
  • #201
    His last update was in August of 09. I do so hope it is taken over because I love this addon and I am goign thru withdrawals because I cant use it atm. Sparkys updates for this addon are at
