Addon FAQ


0. What's that addon that does abilities on downpress instead of key release? (IF YOU ARE NOT USING THIS ADDON, YOU SHOULD BE!!!)

(4.0: Speedy Actions)

Snowfall Keypress



1. I need an addon to display enemy Interrupts/cooldowns

You're looking for InterruptBar or Afflicted.  Some updated links from a subsequent post:

Quote


YOU MAY NEED TO UPDATE SPELL IDS YOURSELF
2. I need an addon to display teammate cooldowns

EnemyAbilityBar, Party Ability Bars, or Aesa


3. How do I get #s on my buttons / buffs?

OmniCC


4. How do I display notifications...

Scrolling?

MSBT

Images or static text?

Power Auras or SpellAlerter (the latter for casts only)

Bars, etc?

Try something like DoTimers, TellMeWhen, etc.

Crowd Control (also on portraits)?

Either LoseControl or a modded SUF.


5. How do I display Diminishing Returns on enemies?

Try Gladminish or DiminishingReturns


6. My [Insert combat-related Addon] is bugging out sometimes...

Check the combat log bug sticky.


7. How do I move my stuff without addons?

Read the sticky.

But no seriously, my [insert frame] isn't staying put!!

Read the whole sticky, specifically http://www.arenajunk...95 and slightly earlier posts.


8. How do I display dispel announcements?

Purgeatory


9. UF/Bar Addons?

UF: Simplistic, Pitbull, oUF, XPerl, OR: Just use the DEFAULT frames with either MoveAnything! or FluidFrames

Bar: Bartender4, Dominos (or again, use default with MA!/FF)


10. I need to copy my settings.

Switching a char/computer?

Quote

You can copy all your settings this way:


0- Log in to the PTR with your copied character one time. Then log out and quit the game.


1- Copy everything in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder (ignore the 'PTR'):

World of Warcraft / Interface / AddOns


2- Copy this one file to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:

World of Warcraft / WTF / Config.wtf


3- Copy all the files BUT NOT THE FOLDERS in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:

World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName>


4- Copy all the files in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:

World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / SavedVariables


5- Look in this folder:

World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / <ServerName>

-Find a character which has everything set up the way you like.

-Copy everything in here to the <CharacterName> folder of whatever character you have on the PTR:

World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / <ServerName> / <CharacterName>


Switching a UI? Try Reflux


11. What are the best addons to use for [insert class/spec]?

#1 Snowfall Keypress

#2 Gladius

#3 A UF & Bar addon or MoveAnything/Fluid Frames.

#4 Probably InterruptBar or Afflicted


12. I want to make my own short addon, how do I do that?


Put this stuff: http://my-svn.assemb...lmoy/addontest/ inside your Interface/AddOns/ folder.  It should be Interface/AddOns/MyCoolAddon/...


Add in code to MyCoolAddon.lua as necessary.


NOTE: Make sure you're saving files as .lua, not .lua.txt - you should probably get a proper text editor like notepad++ http://notepad-plus-plus.org/


NOTE: Make sure that you don't use /run or /script inside of a .lua file, as it's only necessary to do that in-game.



_______________________

Note: If you think this should be changed just let me know.  This is off the top of my head thinking about what is asked most often.  I'm trying to keep it down to 10 (#11 & 12 don't count).

FortExorcist is a good alternative for tracking spells.

Most common bar addons are Bartender and Dominos.

What unit frame!?!?!? :
oUF
sUF
Pitbull
X-perl

Interruptbar is already there at the top.  I'll put in SA, and yea, I can't spell worth shit.  You'd think I'd be able to see the red underline squiggly, but apparently I'm blind too.

Already at least 8 threads where nobody read this

How about Rapture puts in a feature where you automatically get redirected to this thread every time you come to I/A, and can't leave for 30 seconds.

Which one?

Hahaha not a google cache, that shit is going to disappear eventually.  I mean a link to the thread in teh new forums (or did they delete all the posts?!?!).

Ok back up, how do the new forums work?  Are they all starting from scratch, or did they port the old posts?

They did something like all the wow forums were frozen so you couldn't post, and were deleted in one week. So yes everything is gone I think (:

Aww fucking hell.  What a waste of good info (at least the interface section, the rest of it was pretty much crap).
