TourGuide - FlawsGuides  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.2 - 2009-09-15 17:15
by: Flawlessa [More]

README FIRST: This addon is outdated and will probably not be updated. For post-Wrath guides, look to the Wow Pro addon.


----


DESCRIPTION:

This addon is a plugin to the TourGuide module. It provides a still-growing set of guidebooks relating to Daily Quests in the Northrend area.

There are 'Part' guides, written to serve a single purpose. For example, all quests relating to the Argent Crusade reputation.

Then there are 'Loop' guides, which combine pieces of the 'Part' guides to provide for a full day's worth of questing. Also, these 'Loop' guides might be catered to serve a specific goal. For instance, there is a Loop whose aim is obtaining maximum reputation with various factions, while another Loop simply aims for maximum gold.


REQUIREMENTS:

You will need the base TourGuide addon for this to plug into. Next, it is recommended you also have LightHeaded and either TomTom or Cartographer. These are to help with coordinates and provide waypoint arrows. While you can use guides without these tools, you will be restricting yourself tremendously.

Version-wise, this guide pack is known to work with version 3.2.0.54-Beta of TourGuide.


STATUS:

All planned 'Part' guides for Alliance, Horde, and Neutral factions are implemented.

Basic 'Loops' have been implemented for both Horde and Alliance side, though Horde side routes are not optimized. I would love to hear people's suggestions for daily quest Loops, as everyone has their own take on what's worthwhile to do and what not.


IMPORTANT!!!

The Tourguide framework was not designed with rotating daily quests in mind, but for leveling quests that always remain the same.

This set of guides uses the the Tourguide syntax in manners unapproved by Tekkub. At the moment though, it is the only way to handle certain situations relating to optional quests with multiple objectives.

It is possible that these unblessed syntax variations may be patched from working at a future date. That has not happened yet, but it is a possibility to consider. Should a new revision of TourGuide break these guides, I request that please you DO NOT bother Tekkub about the matter.

As of now, this set of guides is known to operate under TourGuide version 3.2.0.54-Beta. (2009-08-25).

If you have found this guide pack to be a useful way to complete your daily quests, for that you might let Tekkub know. Though it was not a goal of the original design, perhaps if there is enough expressed interest, the TG syntax can be one day expanded to truly support rotating, multi-stepped dailies in an approved manner.


UPDATES:

Updates to this addon are published only to wowinterface.com. If the addon is found elsewhere, it's not being put there by me, and may be obsolete. I suggest keeping up to date with this addon and others on WoWInterface by utilizing the "Minion" tool, available at http://minion.mmoui.com


FEEDBACK:

Please direct all feedback to wowflawlessa@yahoo.com
You may also find me in-game as 'Flawlessa' on Shu'Halo-US


THANKS:

A big thank-you to Tekkub for creating the TourGuide framework,
and making the data format open for others to use and roll their
own guides from.

Look forward to any feedback.

Now that the various components are implemented, the real fun begins, piecing them together to form various full-day loops.

Thanks. I didn't forget it though: there's actually a bug that prematurely marks it turned-in.

This is fixed in the dev version, which I should be pushing out in next couple days. It fixes this issue elsewhere too.

First of all, thanks for the great guides! I have been using them for a while now and they're a great help!

I downloaded the updated guide today and when I used the Alliance daily max gold guide I came across some errors:

1: After you're on the Skybreaker, the guide doesn't automatically advance any more when you accept a quest.

2: After I had picked up all the quests on the Skybreaker, the guide told me to go to the little gnome who offers that quest with the jumping robot. Then it told me to go to the Shadow Vault. So I opened the large guide window and I noticed that the guide automatically completed all the quests I had just picked up on the Skybreaker; it never told me to actually go out and complete those quests.

I think the second error is caused by the first one, but I'm not sure. I hope this helps you and that you're able to fix these errors.

Best regards,

Leots

Edit: I just noticed I'm supposed to mail these errors to you, so I've send you an e-mail as well.

weird. I will take a look to see what happened. I had run that loop like 3 times last week without issue, but there's always room for something to muck it up at last moment. Scanning the source file quickly, I'm not seeing it offhand, so will need to dig further. Will contact you by email for more info.

All right, I hope you're able to find it. I'm leaving on the 25th of July for holidays though, so I might not respond to your emails from that day on. I'll be back around late August.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to reproduce these errors. When I got to the Skybreaker, things progressed as expected.

Once on the Skybreaker, you manually close that step.

Then it should have you visit the 5 NPCs onboard, picking up 8 of the 11 available quests. The details should direct you to the proper questgiver.

Once you have them, the first quest to do should be Drag and Drop. After completing 4 of the 8, only then should you be requested to visit Frazzle for the King of the Mountain quest.

Right now I am thinking your guide progress did not fully reset from a previous run. At your next attempt, be sure you reset the guide with a shift-click before beginning. Make sure it says 0% complete before working on the steps.

Due to the recent changes, it certainly is possible there is an issue with the guide. Right now I cannot reproduce. I will ask one of my original testers to try it out.

I don't know about you, but I see the fail here with default Interface Options:



You might want to remove all that extra crap from the titles of the guides (look how the 'SSO Dailies (70)' does it over your stuff).

Adding the license in the whole HELP + LICENSE section under a TG guide is completely wrong! You don't need to help players by teaching them how TG works, and put the license in a file that comes with the zip. that's useless data and it should be removed asap.


There, I fixed it.

Admittedly I've been running another 3rd party pack with similar long titles. My UI window had long since been expanded to encompass them.

I'll see to shrinking them down.
