    Is this add-on defunct now that we can no longer see the time until the next battle from the Honor window?

  • #297

    eh, kinda. i've been enjoying the content so much that it's been hard to work on my beloved wintergrasper. Some of the addon still seems to be working but not the window. currently i do not know why. eventually i'll take a look into it.

  • #295

    Cmon, this is great addon, I love it! Why no update for 6.0.x? Please... please :-)

    Thanks for the report!

    I've been trying to fix this error but, as of yet, have had no luck with it. It doesn't seem to actually effect functionality, though. Believe me when I say that I've really tried to fix it. I've been told that It has to do with dropdown menus but I'm unsure of what I need to do to correct it other than removing it.

  • #286

    This occurs sometimes randomly or when I click on the window to move it.

  • #288

    Ah, crap. When blizzard changed the pvpframe in 5.2 it started causing errors. I did not realize this.
    Tthanks for the report! I'll take a look to see what i can do to resolve the issue.

  • #289

    Fixed in 3.19

  • #285

    can u make the setting save per char so i dont spam my pve guild with pvp massages :P

    sins thay are pritty pissed off about it :P

    so will be nice if i can set toon 1 on and toon 2 off for the announce

    Greets Goten87

  • #287

    I'm fairly sure that you can do this by opening the .toc file(located normally at c:\Program files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Wintergrasper_Advanced\) and changing

    is there a way to disable the leave group dialog after tol barad ends? It's annoying when it pops up in the middle of a fight, and today the yes button popped right under my mouse as a went to select a player causing the healers to lose me on their ui.

  • #283

    Not ingame, sorry. The way to do this though is to open Wintergrasper.lua in notepad and search for and change:

    -- WG_RaidLeaveCheck()

    You need to do this for the first 2 you come across ONLY.  it will be the ones in the WGA_WG_UPDATE() and WGA_TB_UPDATE() functions.
