m Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.9
by: Monolit [More]
m_Map or monoMap

About
  • Originally inspired by Nevcairiel's Mapster and p3lim's pMap, m_Map is a lightweight add-on with few world map modifications.
  • The goal was to apply all the important features to the WorldMap frame without drastically changing it.
  • m_Map consumes about 10kb and no CPU cycles when map is not visible.
  • This add-on was created for people who just want to have clean WorldMap with a little bit of extra functionality.
  • It's not tested with gatherer and questhelper-like add-ons, but I suppose it should work just fine.

Key features
  • new miniWorldMap style;
  • minimize WorldMap when player enters combat;
  • display player and cursor coordinates;
  • remove the black background behind the big map;
  • enable keyboard while big map is opened;
  • no GUI;
  • ability to set custom scale and position for miniWorldMap (via editing m_Map.lua);
  • custom size for group markers;
  • fog removal.

I had a similar issue with FPS drop. In this particular case the conflict seemed to occur with Tomtom (particularly with its ability to show coordinates on the world map). While both mods where showing coordinates, the fps issue was present. Disabling tomtom's ability to display coordinates resolved the framerate drop.

So I went to another area which also had phasing (Redridge) with m_map disabled and sure enough the problem occurred with the blizz map. Once the area was fully loaded the problem went away.

Conclusion: Not the addon, just some weird issue with phasing. I should've done this off the bat. Thank you for your time
no worries, at least we managed to figure out what's broken

It might just be a conflict between addons so I'm gonna re-test with just m_map +SLDT for fps.
That's exactly what you should do in before any 'bug' reports.
If you have another add-ons that modify the map and using same methods as m-Map does it will be like installing 2 anti-viruses and watch the epic battle between them and your system...

Sorry Mono, but I couldn't post an error report because there wasn't one. It might just be a conflict between addons so I'm gonna re-test with just m_map +SLDT for fps.

And it's wasn't an fps drop for a few seconds, it was the entire time the map was open. As soon as I disabled the addon, the problem went away. Again sorry I couldn't be more detailed.

yeah right...
Some amazing bug report's going again, but I'm pretty sure what you get right now...
Blizzard changed the way how you actually load the map textures (it actually happens on zoning now, not when you enter the world) so for the first time when you open the map when you zone in, your wow client loads map textures etc and that may result the slight fps drop for a short period of time, but after the first time you load all that shit, it will not happen again.

Once again this add-on just STYLES THE DEFAULT MAP, it does not modify the way it works.

not m_Map issue, next time you should test it without any other add-on enabled but m_Map before posting "bug" report.

потрудись прочитать комменты ниже, смысла в этом посте нет
если думаешь, что нашел баг, то надо 1) удостоверится, что это НЕ конфликт эдонов, отрубив все, кроме интересующего субъекта
2) описать все свои графические настройки в игре
3) постараться описать как я могу воспроизвести его

Если все же прочитаешь то, что было написао ниже, то увидишь, что я потратил много часов уже на разбор подобного поведения с абсолютно нулевым результатом, никаких падений в фпс не было, да и не понятно откуда им взяться, т.к. код достаточно простой и прозрачный.

Just do as I said, paste in the whole thing at the bottom.
And add the savedvariables stuff to m_map.toc
