... from the middle of the map?


Move the map from the middle of the screen?

Check out the FAQ file included in the zip.
Basically, hold down both CONTROL & ALT keys, and drag the map via the yellow bars that appear at the top/bottom.

AlphaMap is designed to be invisible to the mouse during normal play, and only accepts mouse clicks while the ALT key is held down, or both the CONTROL & ALT keys are held down.
AlphaMap avoids simple CONTROL Clicking in order to be compatible with MapNotes AddOn for creating on-map notes and tracking them via the MiniMap.
MapNotes doesn't have a 3D arrow like TomTom or Carto - but it is compatible with them so that you can create a MapNote, and then right click on it to set it as the TomTom WayPoint

I guess it might be possible to use ALT+SHIFT+Mouse click... I can't remember off the top of my head if that is used or not...
Hi,
Yes, to set a TomTom waypoint on the world map you ctrl-rt-click the map to add the waypoint. After that you can rt-click on the waypoint itself to change options about it. Once you get to the waypoint it is automatically removed from the map. I would rather have this functionality so that I would not have to be adding and removing notes just to get a waypoint.
Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated because I really love the look of this mod.
Thanks!

3) [important and why I am posting] - Just recently (been using alpha map from classic) - The zones are showing as blank? All teh areas I have explored are still showing as nothing.... any ideas?


Thanks in advance.
1.) It's always possible, but at the moment you should post these requests over on the AlphaMap page of www.curse.com - twobits is hopefully going to take over development, and may or may not have time to add this....

2.) There is a FAQ.txt file included in the Zip - It is VERY useful, and answers your questions about the second and third tabs - and actually might show some really cool bit of functionality you didn't know about yet, like the "Compact Viewing" mode on the Miscallaneous Tab....

3.) EDIT : deleted first post answer for 3 - as I completely misread it...
If your map looks unexplored in AlphaMap - then it is usually because you are using an AddOn to show unexplored areas like Cartographer's Foglight, MetaMapFWM, or Mapster(?)....

To show unexplored areas on AlphaMap, (and the WorldMap, and the Battlefield Minimap), the ONLY compatible addon is MozzFullWorldMap (Fan's Update).

http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info5004-MozzFullWorldMapFansUpdate.html#info

You can NOT have both MozzFullWorldMap, AND another Unexplored Area AddOn active at the same time, or things could get very wierd. Preferably, disable the other Unexplored Areas mod from the AddOn screen before logging in. (Or if you disable it from in-game, then try logging out and back in again before judging if it fixed the problem)

Re: A new glitch?

Mmm, OK, from what you've said it sounds like perhaps those icons are being drawn 'behind' the AlphaMap, instead of on top of it... otherwise, I'm a bit stumped. I'll try to have a look...

Are you using the AlphaMap Pause button a lot ?
Are you using the AlhpaMap HotSpot to toggle hiding of on map icons ?

Can you try using the AlphaMap Compact world view mode - see the option on the Miscallaneous Tab of the Options frame.
In Compact viewing mode, if you look at a map like the Barrens - do you see Gatherer icons on the invisible bits of map, but not on the visible parts...?


ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM?
ANYONE ELSE FOR WHOM GATHERER STILL WORKING FINE?

Just lately my TomTom waypoints are not showing up on AlphaMap. They show up just fine on the world map however.

Same thing with Gatherer icons...show on the world map - not on AlphaMap.

By contrast my MapNote icons are just fine.

I noticed that if I scrolled the opacity of the AlphaMap down to almost zero, suddenly I could see the gatherer and TomTom icons.

I've tried poking around with the settings - but other than turning the gatherer icons on and off (which shouldn't even affect TomTom should it?) I can't find anything to adjust.

Help?

BG Objective Icons

Mmm, I will try to see if the size of the BG objectives can be changed to use the same scale as the AlphaMap type notes....

Changing Battleground Objective Icons

Hiya, sorry for late reply, been very busy recently.


First, there is no way to turn off the secondary BG icons - I too find AlphaMap most useful with the same kind of Battleground setup you use, but find that player dots can obscure the on map objectives (I use PartySpotter to improve player icons) - so I find the secondary ones 100% necessary - I may think about an option to turn them off at some time in the future, but sorry, I wouldn't hold my breath.


I haven't been able to play recently, but I think you should be able to change the size of the icons themselves. With the BG map open try the following :

1.) Open the AlphaMap Options for that map
2.) Click on the Second Tab
3.) Temporarily turn ON the AlphaMap map notes
4.) Use the slider to change the size of the AlphaMap map notes
5.) Turn OFF the AlphaMap map notes again, and escape from the Options
6.) Hopefully the size of the BG objective icons will also have changed

You probably already know this, but just in case, I will mention that the BG objectives are only displayed on AlphaMap BG maps when you are actually INSIDE that BattleGround - so the above procedure should really be carried out when inside that particular BG...

Again, I'll mention that I have not had time to play recently or test the above procedure myself, so it's from memory .... let me know if it works


Telic,

Re: Changes in v3.52.30000 from v3.51.30000

Hi all. First of all, i need to thanks to all the developers that have continued deploying and fixing that addon. I'm specially impressed about how well works this addon in battlegrounds (PVP Player, sorry :P)

I have a suggestion at the same time as i have a question.

I need help in order to change the variable or the piece of code that modifies or set the scale of the icons that represent objects in the battlegrounds (the icon that show the icewing tower, the mines, the flag carrier etc) I have scaled the map in order to make it useful for me. Here's a screen that shows how i use the addon:




I'm trying to see where is the line that defines this but i can't see it. I think that icons shoud be scalled by the user.

PS: yep, I'm not an english speaker so my english is so poor, sorry about that
