    I love this addon, so since it looks like it's been abandoned - it's been 2 years since the last update - I had a go at updating it for 6.0.2 myself and got it (mostly) working. The base code was all still working perfectly, the only changes needed were to the Localization.lua file -  I've added the new pet families in WoD (and a couple from MoP which weren't included in the last update), and included all the changes made to the special abilities.

    Because the changes were too big to copy/paste here, I've uploaded my modded file to Mediafire if anyone wants to use it - although bear in mind I made this for my own personal use, I'm not a coder, and if someone finds an error with it then I probably won't be much help >.< Full credit for this addon goes to Lawl1338 for making it in the first place, all I've done is fiddle with it a bit to make it work properly with the current version of WoW.

    Known issues:
    - German, French and Spanish translations haven't been updated yet. I can have a go at these, but if someone could send me translations of pet familiy names that would be helpful! :P
    - Icons for new pet families are currently green squares, which probably means the paths are wrong. I will be digging around to find the proper paths for the icons, but my main priority was getting the addon working - as it is, this doesn't affect the addon at all.
    - Basilisks do not have a special ability at the moment. It's something Blizzard are aware of and are working on, but for now all they have is Bite.
    - Occasionally, the menu doesn't drop down automatically, and clicking the icon throws up an error. I have no idea why it does this, and it only seems to be a rare occurance, but closing the error and trying again seems to work.

    Drop the file into Interface/Addons/HunterStableInfo and click "Copy and Replace" when asked (might be an idea to back up the original file first, though...)

    When I made the change to fix the addon for the new stable size, I messed around withe the lua-code a little bit, to scale down the tooltip. In the process I tested all the modifier-mousebutton options and got that really ugly frame that listed the first 25 pets but didn't do anything else. So I decided to make this option more usefull and let it open my pets character sheet.

    If anyone wants to do that too, open the HunterStableInfo.lua and go to line 231. It should say:


    I disabled this line by putting a double minus at the beginning of the line. Then I added a new line underneath and wrote this:

    While I realise that this has most likely been abandoned (almost a year since the last update and no response from the author in almost the same time) I'd like to ask if it's possible to add back the pet's level in the Broker tooltip as per image 1 & 3 (Name, Level, Family).

  • #33

    Quick fixes for the new stable size (5 active + 50 stable slots = 55 total). You get a scroll bar if the tooltip exceeds the window's height.

    HunterStableInfo.lua, line 174
    for i=1, 55 do

    HunterStableInfo.lua, line 401
    for i=6, 55 do

    HunterStableInfo.lua, line 476
    for i=1, 55 do

    Localization.lua, line 10
    HUNTERSTABLEINFO_MAXSTABLE = " / 55 pets in your stable";

    Localization.lua, line 147
    HUNTERSTABLEINFO_MAXSTABLE = " / 55 Tiere in deinem Stall";

    For some reason I expected there would be a whole lot more work involved in getting this working to show all 55 slots. Thank you very much for posting this info, not only which files to edit but also the line numbers so we don't have to search the entire file! I made these 5 edits and I now see all 55 slots, I didn't even need to visit a Stable Master, all the slots and pets beyond the original 25 were showing straight away. :)


  • #34

    Thank you Noxxana for showing which lines to re code :)

  • #32

    This really needs an update now that hunters have access to 50 stable slots. Is the author still around or has this been abandoned?

  • #30

    Could you please update the new / changed pet abilities (e.g. hyena, serpent attack speed buff, sporebat spell haste buff and things like that)?

  • #29

    Why did you remove the pet class? This was the main reason I grabbed this add-on. Sigh.

  • #31

    Since you can change the pet classes (even different classes for different hunter specs) the only useful way to keep that information would be to show a) the default class the pet comes with and b) (if changed) the actual class you chose for each spec. Would be nice to have, indeed.

  • #27

    Do you have "Ace3" listed in your addons list? Do you still get the error if it's disabled?

  • #28

    Yes, I have the Lib:Ace3 installed, some addon installed this, don't know which. With the Lib:Ace3 disabled, the addon functions properly, but I didn't know ar the moment if without this Lib any other addon will crash.

  • #23

    Is there a 5.x release in the works?

  • #24

    Just updated the addon for v5.0.5

    Such a shame blizzard removed so many features of the hunter pets...
    I had to remove almost every pet information in the tooltip. Now you can only see your pets name and family...

    If you find any bugs or wrong pet abilities listed in the pet ability tooltip send me a message or post a comment!
