New Official TomTom in the oven! Beta now availible!

The bug I posted to the official TomTom site has been closed:  146-hacked-up-version-works-in-602-mostly

James (aka Cladhaire) has sucessfully sucked out the goodness out of my hacked up version and is now actively working on the next version.

We are in email communication and I have offered any and all assistance that we all can provide.

WoD Status 6.0.2 18865 (Sept 15)

Sorry about the delay. I kinda forgot that I was going to be on call at work 24/7 for a week ending today and it kinda sucked up a lot of free time.

I have been spending what free time I did have trying to figure out why the waypoint arrow was not working right and have managed to correct the code in WoWPro, TomTom, Astrolabe, and LibMapData.

There is a New WoD Build a Brewin ... and this is the new checklist

OK. The official questing zones in WoD are:

  1. Tanaan Jungle
  2. Shadowmoon Valley
  3. Frostfire Ridge
  4. Gorgrond
  5. Talador
  6. Spires of Arak
  7. Nagrand

So I will set up wiki pages for each of these tomorow. If a quick look at WowHead seems to indicate faction specific zones are appropriate, I will set them up as such.

Any existing material from Emmaleah will be moved into this new structure.
However, if you want to take over a guide from her, ask her!

My role will be as editor, tester and bug fixer.

WoW Beta Report v6.0.2 (18764)

So Emmaleah and I have been busy for the past few days.  She's been making changes to the guides and I have been fixing bugs in the Addon.

While I had great plans at makes some updates to the Pandaria addon, Verizon decided to break my DSL connection for most of the weekend, so I had to put that part off.

So new features and fixes:

My First WoD Guide

What better way to test the recorder than to run it.
I think Blizzard has tinkered with the starting zone quests again.
We will need someone to spin up a toon of every race and class to test.

Wow Beta Report v6.0.1 (18566)

OK.  So I tried loading up what I considered my minimal set of addons:

  • Bartender4
  • !Swatter
  • TomTom
  • WowPro, WowPro_Leveling and WowPro_Recorder

It was necessary to update the Interface number inall the .TOC files or nothing would load.  But then Swatter worked flawlessly..  It captured 36 errors loading the other addons.

Errors showed up in:

Wow-Pro Guide Picker (Preview)

I'm working on a new feature, which I‘m calling the “Wow-Pro Guide Picker.”

Part of it will be behind the scenes: If you get a quest for a guide that is registered for the guide picker, it will automatically switch to that guide. So if you start doing the Tillers dailies and then go off to August Celestials, the guides will just switch. Pick up the fishing daily in Dalaran, and it will just work. So WoWPro will remember—for any guide you have used—what quests it has, and use that as the data to do a switch.

But what if you want to quickly pick another guide?
