Loot much faster by not having to wait for the loot window!

This addon sucks in raids when you have to loot specific stuff . I have to make it disable itself there.

*ahem*
I suggest you amend your description.

That will be awesome ~
I use it with teksLoot and it should work with every other addon.

Well, if that so, basically this addon doesn't make any change at all.
IDK whether other ppl are looting like I do, usually I tend to loot another corpse when the combat log shows loot XXXX, which is the addon prompts us to.

I'm still honestly confused as to how it even does that, unless I'm missing something fundamental beyond installing the mod (and not having WOW muted). I'm still hearing the default loot sound.

I looked through the addon folder an LUA to try to get a better idea of what the actual function of this addon is, but I couldn't figure it out... By "loot faster," do you mean that this addon bypasses Blizzard's default looting interface and process? (I noticed you included a couple custom sound files to replace the default loot sound.)

Does this addon allow characters to "loot faster" merely by bypassing the default loot process, or does it actually speed up the core function somehow?

I'm no good at reading code, so please assume I missed something.

I know this adds two mp3 files which play when you loot.
  • Play bump.mp3 when bags are full.
  • Play coin.mp3 when bags are not full.

I don't know how that helps you loot faster but it is useful

So, I installed this to see what it does (the mp3 clips piqued my interest) and I honestly can't tell.

Should the clips be playing upon looting, or something? Because they're not.

It essentially is one line of code. There is nothing more to explain.

No one is going to read the description anyway. I get asked about the options for my nameplate addon all the time and it's the third line out of four...

Loot faster? Why would I want that? And exactly WHAT does it do?
I'm not interested in some vague description of the end result. As with most addons, there's usually some sort of description accompanying them. This is just lazy, uninformative and frankly pointless without you informing the users of WoWI what it is they're installing...
