NPCScan  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.0.1
by: Torhal [More]

NPCScan helps you find NPCs by scanning nameplates, minimap vignettes, and mouseover targets, with an optional dynamic targeting keybinding. Once an NPC is found by one of these methods, an on screen alert is displayed and an audio alert is played.

Nameplates
Alerts will be triggered whenever a nameplate is created, if that nameplate belongs to one of the tracked NPCs. To use this feature with any reliability, the Interface->Names->Always Show Nameplates option must be turned on from the WoW Game Menu.

Dynamic Target Keybinding
NPCScan includes a key binding that will trigger a dynamically-generated targeting macro. Each time it is pressed, the key binding will trigger a /targetexact <mob name=""> for every tracked NPC in the current zone you are in, in addition to any custom NPC additions. This only attempts a search each time it is triggered; it is not a continuous search.

To access this feature, just set a keybind under the Key Bindings->AddOns->NPCScan->Targeting Macro section.

“Found” Alert
When an NPC is found, NPCScan alerts you by playing a loud and distinctive sound, making your screen pulse red, and displaying a Targeting Button for every NPC that is found.

Targeting Buttons
When clicked, the targeting button tries to target the NPC it depicts. You can also bind a key to trigger the newest button, in cases where multiple buttons are spawned.

Note: These buttons cannot be shown during combat. In the unlikely case that you do find a rare while fighting, the button or buttons will appear after you leave combat.

Options
NPCScan's main options window can be accessed from the Interface Options menu. To access the NPC list and other settings, type “/npcscan”.

New sounds can be added to the alert sound dropdown menu by installing SharedMedia.

    • Added an “Unmute for alert sound” setting to play the alert sound even if WoW is muted.
    • Added an “Alert sound file” dropdown to choose which sound to play for alerts. Additional sounds can be added using SharedMedia-type addons.
    • The alert border flash now only shows when you enable “Screen Edge Flash” in the Default UI's Display Interface Options panel.

Yep, that link just explained where the cache was for some Windows 7 machines. Generally though, the instructions in the description should still work.

Did you ever fix this problem? I have the same problem. It's very annoying having to re-enter Aeonaxx and other rares every time I log in.
I was never able to reproduce that problem, and just assumed it was caused by closing the game with either ALT+F4 or the close button in the top corner of the game window. If you don't close the game with either "Log Out" or "Exit Game" (like if the game crashes completely), no settings will save since you logged in.

If that doesn't explain it and you always log out or quit through the in-game menu, it might be a rare addon conflict. In this case, could you please paste a list of the mods you're using (or a screenshot of what's in your addon folder)?

Are they enabled in your "/npcscan" settings? Please make sure the checkbox on the Frostbitten tab is enabled. Like I replied earlier, there was a bug in an older version that may have removed all your settings, turning all scans off. If your settings aren't cleared though, does the command "/npcscan cache" print any mob names you were trying to find? If so, clearing your cache may not have worked; Just make sure to completely close WoW before deleting it next time.

Try to clear your cache, add a mob that you sure can find in certain place (say, a boss or other mob in a dungeon), and enter that dungeon.
Trial of the Champion and Jaeren Sunsworn/Arelas Brightstar would be a good choice.
hmm i will try it again but I did clear my cache and I have been in Westfall with my rogue.... i have killed the rare npc (murlock, Brack) oh 6 or 7 times now and it never pops up.

I will however give it another try

Mine loads with no LUA errors I can configure it and do a test fine also, but my problem is it doesnt ever find a RATE MOB (NPC).

I have stood there with my mouse over one, target one and even fought one numerous times but it never says its in the area.

Also the NPCScan overlay isnt working on a lot of the maps

I have gone in and deleted the creature cache and it hasnt helped.

Any ideas?

The interface setting also contains a button that should be able to "test" a certain sound, however when I press it, it does not give any sound. Besides, /npcscan doesn't work, it only gives me the type /help for etc..

I DO see a small box with NPCscan on the big map whenever I login, it shows in grey text with a red X beside it. Whenever I press it, the red X dissappears.
However when pressing it, it doesn't change anything besides that.

If anyone knows what I could/should do, i'd highly appreciate it.

Do you have Lua errors turned on? It sounds like the configuration window is breaking, possibly for both mods. Normally "/npcscan" should bring up a list of all mobs, and the sound that the "Test" button makes is also based on a setting. If you do get an error on login, please copy it here.

If you're familiar with AtlasLoot or mods like it, you've probably noticed that never before seen items won't show their tooltips. Mob tooltips work in a similar way, so _NPCScan tries to open a tooltip for mobs over and over. When one of those mob tooltips actually appears, _NPCScan knows the mob was just seen and must be nearby. That mob could be anywhere around you though.
