WoW-Pro Addon – Patch 3.2


Update: The WoW-Pro addon should now work correctly if you follow these steps:

  • Download the update to Tour Guide and extract it into your addon folder.
  • Download the update to TomTom and extract it into your addon folder.
  • Download the update to Lightheaded and extract it into your addon folder.
  • On the character selection screen, select “Load out of date addons” (for now our guides are listed as out of date, but they still work fine. This will be fixed soon)

Please let us know if you still have trouble after following these steps!

Thanks to everyone who left feedback, and sorry that it took me a while to respond… I may or may not have been screwing around in WoW with my new cat form 🙂

    I have heard others complainI have heard others complain about this. I use cartographer instead of tomtom, and it’s working fine. If you can’t get TomTom to work, that might be an alternative (though cartographer is a much bigger addon with functionality that you may not want.

    TomTomI was wondering if anyone else tom tom isn’t pulling the coords for some reason. I have no arrow anyhow. I have lightheaded set to autosend info to tomtom. Is it meant to happen automatically with this guide or am I suppose to click on the coords in lightheaded each time? It’s weird cause if I chose a different guide out of the list the arrow would show…

    And I have all the most up to date versions of all the addons.

    Wow-Pro Addon Potential FixHello everyone, I believe I may have a solution to the problem of the addon not showing up on the in-game UI.

    Here is what I did, step by step:

    -I installed all the updated addons into both the C drive WOW folder and the Public folder on my computer.
    -I then located James Alliance and Horde guides addon using the path: computer-(c:)-program files-WOW-Interface-Addon
    -I then opened the Alliance folder and RIGHT CLICKED on one of the LUA guide files, and selected options, and changed the program it opened with to notepad. (the big change button)
    -I then right clicked on the only TOC file in the folder and did that same thing as above.
    -I then did the same thing to the Horde folder
    -I did the same thing to the Alliance and Horde folders in the Public folder.
    -I logged into the game and made sure all of the addons were in the log after i clicked the addon buttin in the character selection screen ( the addons that should be there are: Lightheaded, Lightheaded Data A-E, Lightheaded NPC, Lightheaded QID…,TomTom, Tourguide,WOW-Pro Alliance and/or Horde.
    -Then make sure “load out-of-date addon” is checked
    -Log into any character
    -Open Game Menu (escape key)
    -Click interface, followed by clicking the addon tab on the top of the left hand column
    -Click the tiny plus icon next to the word “Tourguide”
    -Click on the guides option
    -James guides should be shown there, select the one you wish to follow
    -Log out of your character without doing anything else
    -Log back into the same character and the addon should be up and telling you what to do

    You can most likely skip the first 5 bullets as I was mostly messing with it at that point, but I wanted to include them in case those steps were needed. Feel free to contact me.

    Darn, I just don’t know whatDarn, I just don’t know what the problem could be. My knowledge of addons is from a user perspective only, and this is going beyond it. If anyone knows why this wouldn’t be working, for this user specifically, let us know.

    Yes I’ve updated everything,Yes I’ve updated everything, and the box is checked to load the out of date wow-pro addon. I tried something though. I went into the game both with the wowpro addon on, and off. It seems I get the same result either way. Its like it doesn’t even know the addon is there.

    I really hate both hearingI really hate both hearing and giving this answer, but it may be an addon conflict or something. I know I am able to load the Horde guides fine, as are others. Try re-downloading the horde guide if you haven’t already done so, otherwise I’m not sure what to try next.

    Yes the guides show up inYes the guides show up in the Addon selection screen. I did disable the WOW-Pro guides and I don’t get the error. If I re-enable the guide, the error comes back. So it appears to be something with the outdated guide.

    Sorry to add to the problems…I don’t mean to add more heat to the fire but it seems I’m having a different problem entirely. I downloaded and replaced all of the addons, and enabled the guides to run through as out of date. Everything works but for some reason none of Jame’s guides appear in the list of guides. It seems that they are just generic leveling guides. Anyone have any ideas?

    Re: TomTom isn’t workingIt might just be a setting mixup, if you can get the green dot on the map try right-clicking it and clicking “Add To Arrow”.

    Everything works perfectlyI downloaded the newest Tourguide and Tomtom from Curse and the newest Lightheaded from Wowinterface.
    First I thought Jame’s guide did not work, but after ticking “load out of date addons” it did work.
    Now I can continue leveling again 😀

    It sounds like there areIt sounds like there are still some bugs with the group of addons. If *anyone* has this working perfectly, could you provide links to the download sites where you got your updates?

    I can’t test them out right now, but I might be able to tonight. Sorry folks.

    Good point. I’ll release aGood point. I’ll release a quick fix for this sometime soon, but until then you can either do this, or just “load out of date addons” until it comes out. I might be a bit busy for the next few days though, and don’t have access to the guide files from this computer.

    Its Up NowDownload TourGuide for 3.2 from If it isn’t named Tourguide after rename it and then move it to your addon folder and click “replace all”. Do not replace the wow-pro folder though.

    For me the TourGuide folder was named TourGuide-1, you cannot delete the old folder and then move the new one in because that might cause the loss of your progress in the guides.

    I tested it and it works fine, just like it did before the update.

    Quick Fix for the Guide addonI ran into trouble today when trying to use Jame’s guide inside of Tourguide. After updating Tourguide, the wowHorde guide was still showing up as Out of Date.

    So I went digging inside the C:Program FilesWorld of WarcraftInterfaceAddOnsWoW-Pro_TourGuide_Horde folder and found the WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Horde.toc file in that directory. I then changed the first line from:
    ## Interface: 30100
    ## Interface: 30200

    After that the Addon was not Out of Date anymore and I could select the guide from tourguide. Hope this helps out a few people.

    Well , I don’t really knowWell , I don’t really know how to code an addon so I can’t help but for sure some of our plug ins may need to be converted in order to work with the new version of the addon.
    Also, I hate you americans >.< you get patches 1 day before us, poor dwellers of ol' Country 🙁 I also have a level 62 druid so I'm excited to see the new forms, but I'm more focused on leveling my warlock 😉

    TourGuideOkay, I have confirmed that all the guides on TourGuide work, and it is updated. The link on the home page is sort of broken. If you click on it, it says that the link is broken but it redirects you to Tekkub’s home page. Then you can click the TourGuide link on the right of the page to download it from the next page.
    The link on the alliance and horde addon download pages to tourguide work correctly.

    TourGuide is Updated!TourGuide is updated! The link on Jame’s post on the home page works and links you to the correct download of TourGuide. I suppose the guides in-game work correctly, but I will check it and inform you on another post if all the guides are working correctly on the updated patch.

    Temporary fixOpen your interfaceaddonstourguidebroker.lua file with wordpad

    Line 72 should read:


    put –(space) in front of that so that it reads:

    — WatchFrame_Update()

    it should work fine. I don’t claim credit for that, I got it off the TourGuide board.

    WoW-Pro AddOnIt appears that the WoW-Pro AddOn does not have any problems. When you click any of the WoW-Pro guides in the TourGuide options in-game, and click the built-in guides, both of them have the same errors. So I would just send notice to Tekkub and wait for the updated version. In the meantime, everyone should just stick to the online guides.
