QuseMap
Version: v1.3
by: Qupe [More]
Rectangular shaped minimap based on Dawn's dRecMap and Ichik's Wanderlust.

DISCLAIMER:
Due to how the minimap is made into a rectangle, placing the map flush
against the top and bottom borders of the screen is impossible.

The minimum space needed is already calculated for you in the LUA.

FEATURES/FUNCTIONALITY:
- Rectangular!
- Lightweight
- Easy-to-use .LUA config in "QuseMap.lua" file (to change anything past default, you must be willing to look at lua)
- Snazzy "new mail" indicator
- Picomenu (micro-menu) written by Neal, featured in Neav UI
- Replaces instance difficulty flag with a text-based indicator

- To open Picomenu, click the bright yellow square in bottom left of map
- Right click anywhere on the map to bring up tracking list (default spot is top left corner)
- Left click the clock for the calendar (or type /cl)
- Right click the clock for the stopwatch frame
- Clock will turn light maroon color when there is a pending calendar invite

HOW TO:
- Open the QuseMap.zip file
- Place the QuseMap folder into your AddOns folder
- Enable at the character select screen
- Bananas!

* If you would like to disable the Picomenu, delete/rename the "picomenu.lua" file from inside the addon folder.

FONTS HOW TO:
I have included both a pixel font and a non-pixel font in the folder.
To swap between them choose either font at the top of the QuseMap.lua file (look for the large "CHANGE FONT HERE" text).

For pixel fonts: change the value to true. For non-pixel fonts change value to false
Lua Code:
  1. local pixelFont = true   -- false for normal fonts

If you wish to change the font size or outline for either font change the values for your corresponding font:
Lua Code:
  1. if pixelFont == true then
  2.     font = mediaFolder.."font2.ttf"    
  3.     fontsize = 8
  4.     fontflag = "OUTLINEMONOCHROME"
  5. else
  6.     font = mediaFolder.."font.ttf" 
  7.     fontsize = 12
  8.     fontflag = "OUTLINE"
  9. end
* If you wish to change the supplied fonts, drag and drop your desired font into the media folder and rename it to font or font2 (font = non-pixel font, font2 = pixel font).

TO DO:
- Add Dawn's "hold-ALT-to-move" code back in.
- Figure out how to make clock text flash when a pending invite is present.

If you find any issues or have any suggestions/comments/issues, please leave a comment in the comments section!

That's really, really strange. I'll take a look, but I don't even know where to start.
yes it is. i dont know if its connected to my settings . didnt test it with a clean grid2 install.
Think I have it fixed, got an update ready to go. Probably my crappy code!
thanks!

For anyone getting an error when using this sexy thing (patch 5.2).

replace line 111-133 with:

Code:
rd:SetScript("OnEvent", function()
	local _, _, difficulty, _, maxPlayers = GetInstanceInfo()

	if difficulty == 0 then
		rdt:SetText("")
	elseif maxPlayers == 3 then
		rdt:SetText("3")
	elseif difficulty == 1 then
		rdt:SetText("5")
	elseif difficulty == 2 then
		rdt:SetText("5H")
	elseif difficulty == 3 then
		rdt:SetText("10")
	elseif difficulty == 4 then
		rdt:SetText("25")
	elseif difficulty == 5 then
		rdt:SetText("10H")
	elseif difficulty == 6 then
		rdt:SetText("25H")
	elseif difficulty == 7 then
		rdt:SetText("LFR")
	elseif difficulty == 8 then
		rdt:SetText("5CM")
	elseif difficulty == 9 then
		rdt:SetText("40")
	end
From FreeUI.
