Questing with James once more

For a couple of years (and toons) “my mate James” and I quested merrily along together.

Just the two of us.

As much as he was there to hold my hand and tell me where to go, he was never in my ear, never needed bio’s, never wiped the party.

There was no loot drama with James.   He would tell me what was good, and I would trust him… he never rolled against me.  What I found was mine.

We had a great friendship, better in many ways that the friends I have with my real life friend.  He was if nothing else, always by my side when I needed him, even on the train when I was planning out what to do next session.

Unfortunately even the best of friends part ways, if only for a short period.  Thus it was with James and I.  You see, I had no further need of his assistance, so I casually cast him aside (*actually my wife set him on fire… sounds bad doesn’t it). (more…)

Where are the Instance Maps?

Something that has been bugging me for a while…

How long?

3 versions of WoW long!

  • I get maps of zones.
  • I get maps of cities.
  • I get maps of battlegrounds.
  • I don’t get maps of instances.

Interfaces, a warning

Don’t drink, install & change keybindings!

Thanks for the suggestions on interfaces. I downloaded SpartanUI and after a fair amount of screwing about got a reasonable interface happening. The issue still remains that the interface isn’t built for my resolution, so somethings aren’t quite right. Cast bars are the biggest offenders, but I need to make a final decision on whether it stays or not.

Never the less, happy enough with the look, and inspired by Euripedes, I decided to redo my key bindings.

This involved, apart from remapping most of my abilities, reversing the order that my most used spells were bound.

Anyway, happy with my choices of keybindings, I set off to the Borean Tundra to help D.E.H.T.A.

Hey, and while I am at it, let’s celebrate the new interface and keybindings with a “few” quiet whiskies.

Mmmmmm bad combination (more…)

Interface from hell

I have the interface from hell.

Years of choosing and discarding mods until I have the functionality I desire have left my screen cluttered and confusing.

This is the real reason I play a Gnome, at least I can see a little bit of WoW real estate.

Back in the days when I toyed with complete interfaces they were fraught with hours of configuration and incompatible addons. By the time I would get it barely functioning a new WoW patch would come out and I was back to square one.

I know things have improved, but I have never found the time to research, download and configure one, for one character, let alone the half dozen I check up on from time to time.

So I am putting out the call to my readers. (more…)

What cheeses me off

What cheeses me off

There is one thing about patches that really cheeses me off.

  • It’s not that we get new content buffs or nerfs – that’s what the patch is about right?
  • It’s not that “our” mods are broken, what do you expect when the software that they interact with has been radically changed, and the addon developers are writing their mods in their spare time and releasing them to the public out of the goodness of their hearts.

No the thing that cheeses me off is the “9,990,000” ungrateful players of WoW. The ones that aren’t happy that things have changed. This is revealed in a few different forms.

  • Bring back classic WoW (soon to be augmented by the bring back TBC whingers.
  • The my mod is broken whingers.
  • The I want the old mod whingers.

Hey Folks,

Any hair left on your heads (and no I am not talking about the mandatory trip to the ingame Barber)?

As would be expected with any WoW “patch” this size, addons are continuing to break and evolve as those breakages are being reported to the Addon authors, so…

Stick with it, chin up and all that stuff

Report the errors you see so that things can get fixed

OK, now more specifically to Auctioneer.

Error Reporting

One of the nice things about Auctioneer is it’s error reporting frame, which nicely captures errors which may (or may not be) related to Auctioneer. (more…)

WoWAceUpdater is Dead, Long Live CurseClient

WoWAceUpdater is Dead, Long Live CurseClient

Rest In Peace: files.wowace and WowAceUpdater

Posted by Kaelten on 10/15/2008 04:43:01

So WoWAce lovers may not realise (despite WoWAceUpdater not doing anything) that WoWAce has now bitten the dust. This was fortold some time ago, but WoWAce and it’s updater were supported until the CurseClient was remodelled and improved. (more…)
