Version: 1.3.4
by: Goldpaw [More]
Addon updated 09.12.2009.
- Hotfixed to work with the WoW 3.3 patch. Option to toggle the Minimap titlebar removed.

Some of the things it can do are as follows:
  • Automatically release your spirit while dying in Battlegrounds, Wintergrasp, while being ungrouped or in a Raid
  • Automatically use a Soul Stone if available, while being in a Battleground, Wintergrasp, when you're ungrouped or in a Raid
  • Automatically sell gray quality loot
  • Automatically repair when visiting a merchant who can repair
  • Automatically open all your bags when visiting a merchant, the bank, the Guild bank, the auction house, the mail box or while trading
  • Hides the chat buttons and arrows, and activates the use of the mouse wheel to scroll in the chat windows
  • Hide the clutter and various icons and buttons from the minimap. Also activates the use of the mouse wheel to zoom
  • Decline group invitations, guild invites, charter spam, duels, etc. Can be set to allow from guild, and even to automatically accept group invitations from guild and friends!
  • Moves the chat inputbox to the top of the chatframe
  • Glue the tooltip to the mouse cursor
  • Hide the UI Error Frame (You can't do that yet, Not enough energy etc etc)
  • Abbreviate channel names
  • Prevent the chat from fading out
  • Outlined Chat
  • Save different settings for each character of course
  • Allow you to edit all of the options above


I'm open to suggestions as to what other little nifty things I can put in. Every positive and friendly response is welcome.

Regards
Goldpaw

A user named echoit posted a fan update in the comment section over at Curse that works for 3.3.5. He didn't really add anything, just made some fixes to make it 3.3.5 compatible. I haven't tested it myself, just downloaded it to see if it was legit. Which it of course was.

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ails/gbot.aspx

I'm not updating GBOT as it is anyway, I'm rewriting it (almost) from scratch. It will be better than before.

actually Ive noticed that it does in fact still work in part (at least the auto sell and repair functions so I went and checked to see what was still working


* Automatically release your spirit while dying in Battlegrounds, Wintergrasp, while being ungrouped or in a Raid

I went to WG yesterday and the moment I died I was taken to graveyard so Im thinking this still works.

* Automatically use a Soul Stone if available, while being in a Battleground, Wintergrasp, when you're ungrouped or in a Raid
Didnt test this

* Automatically sell gray quality loot
works

* Automatically repair when visiting a merchant who can repair
works

* Automatically open all your bags when visiting a merchant, the bank, the Guild bank, the auction house, the mail box or while trading
works


* Hides the chat buttons and arrows, and activates the use of the mouse wheel to scroll in the chat windows
appears to be busted

* Hide the clutter and various icons and buttons from the minimap. Also activates the use of the mouse wheel to zoom
I use minimap button bag so I cant speak to the hiding buttons but the mouse wheel zoom and lack of zoom buttons tells me this is still working


* Decline group invitations, guild invites, charter spam, duels, etc. Can be set to allow from guild, and even to automatically accept group invitations from guild and friends!
Never used this so dont know

* Moves the chat inputbox to the top of the chatframe
busted


* Glue the tooltip to the mouse cursor
busted

* Hide the UI Error Frame (You can't do that yet, Not enough energy etc etc)
I think this either has been busted for a long time or I totally forgot to turn it on.

* Abbreviate channel names
busted

* Prevent the chat from fading out
busted

* Outlined Chat
busted

* Save different settings for each character of course
cant get to the options so cant tell

* Allow you to edit all of the options above
options window is busted

Re: Thanks for making this.

1) The auto-release of spirit after dying.

2) The auto-use of soul stones. Boy do I ever need that one. Anytime I get one I never ever use it; I keep forgetting I have it even when it's sitting on my hotbars!

3) And lastly I am interested in the auto-decline features you have to decline duels, petitions, groups and whatnot. I already use the Antisocial addon for that and it's worked for me for over two years with no complaints. However I never took the time to find out if it had the auto-accept invites from friends and guild members. So if yours allows for that then I could probably drop Antisocial.

I am wondering though about the chat functions gBOT adds. Does it include 100% of everything gChat does or just a few pieces here and there? I am all for reducing clutter in my Addons folder! One/or three less folders is nice.

I saw a post of yours here saying that you were always interested in other ideas of things to add to gBOT. I wrote a post on your gChat page asking for two more features to gChat. Perhaps you would add them here instead. I won't repeat completely what I wrote on your gChat page but basically was looking for a /tt (tell target) chat shortcut and also the ability to click web links in chat so we can Ctrl+C copy them.

Anyhow, that's it. Thanks again for your addons. Using three of them right now and after I get your reply here about gChat and the two features I am asking about, I will probably start using gBOT too.
To answer things in order;

1) and 2) Not really questions, so moving on here

3) Some of these features are currently broken in GBOT. But don't panic! They have been fixed and migrated to a separate addon named gPrivacy!

No. GBOT does not include 100% from gChat. It's the other way around. I haven't been working on GBOT since before Christmas 2009, so it's partly broken, partly outdated. gChat has everything that GBOT had regarding chat, and much more.

I'll be adding the options to choose exactly what channels should be treated as stickies in gChat, where a "sticky" channel is one that can appear when you press Enter. That way users themselves will be able to choose of Trade, General, /whisper and all that should appear on Enter or not. I intend to add clickable links, as well as a color wheel for users to choose the color of the timestamps from.

Having all this said, I do intend to fix and update GBOT. And it will use the code from gPrivacy, gMerchant, gTip, gPrivacy etc etc etc. It was intended originally to be an all-in-one addon, and it will be so once again. The reason I started splitting things into separate addons in the first place, was because of a lot of requests for only the merchant module, or only the chat module. I wanted people to be able to use it's features, without having to install the whole thing.

The thing with GBOT is that it was the first addon I wrote. The first version was poorly written and full of bugs. The first version I uploaded was a rewrite of the original, but still it wasn't good. And everything that came later were just hotfixes and emergency patches to keep it running.

Anyway, before I completely forget what I'm even replying to; GBOT will be updated, and fixed. I have no ETA, but the classic Blizzard "soon" would be appropriate to use here.

item for nothing = no thank you
service for gold = thank you
service for nothing no thank you
gold for nothing = thank you

you would have to play around with it to accurately thank in correct situations

but anyways i think that would be an awesome addition to your bag of tricks
I've been thinking about that too. Immoral as it may be to automatically be a nice guy, I kind of love the idea. I'm currently using an addon called Accomplishment that can be set up to automatically congratulate people on their Achievements. My guild loves me now, rofl.

Anyway, I'll keep thinking about your idea. It shouldn't be too hard to implement. It would basically have to be a system that got activated before/after a trade, and that could detect whether or not we received any items or our amount of gold changed from before to after.

I did mention that I'm kind of lazy, btw?

I noticed that since the 3.2 patch your addon shows up as out of date. It seems that the interface number is wrong. You have it as 32000 when it is 30200. Its not much of an issue for me, I just go into the toc and correct it myself. I thought I would just point this out. Thanks for the wonderful addon tho.
"oops"


I'll make sure to fix this next update. Thanks for pointing it out, I totally missed that one.

...and I didn't add it during the summer. Mainly due to me being on a looooong vacation. But it's coming. I'm slow though.

It's fairly simple to add, but I really can't remember anything right now. I'll add this to my "list of things to add" in the next "big" update I'll be doing sometime... uh... before Christmas!

Re: Love the addon!

Otherwise everything else is fantastic.

Edit: Apparently the tooltip issue corrects itself after restarting the game.
Actually, whether the tooltip fades, or simply disappears instantly, is not something I've covered or manipulated in this addon. If your tooltip now *poofs* away right after you leave a target with your cursor, some other addon is probably doing that for you.

There is a chance I'll add that functionality to GBOT in the next version of course. But as somebody might have noticed, I'm not exactly working on this addon day and night...

It is a natural thing to add though, to give that extra bit of control. It's right down the alley of the "small" things I wish for GBOT to do, so I'll add it to the list of stuff I want in for the next "big" version. Up to that, I'll simply focus on making it work with the WoW patches, and remove whatever bugs may appear.
