MetaMap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 20100-2
by: MetaHawk [More]
DESCRIPTION:
============
MetaMap adds features to the WoW world map, keeping all mapping type features in a single place.
Some features are:

Adjust the map window size.
Move the map anywhere on the screen.
Adjust the opacity of the window & maps.
Saved sets for toggling between 2 map modes.
Allows full player movement, messaging, etc. with map open.
Adds coords to the main map and the Minimap
Adds Instance maps which open to the correct instance you enter.
Default data included for all bosses & locations etc.
User editable notes for all maps, including instance maps.
NPC/Mob database collectable by mouseover or keypress.
Toggling on/off display of unexplored areas of the map.
Boss Loot Tables displays all the loot dropped by bosses, and more.
Waypoint system to guide you to any set point.
Complete Quest logger with optional history database.
Tracker module for gathering Herbs/Ores etc.
NoteBook module for additional notes, linked to Tooltips.
Inbuilt Import and export facilities for various data formats.
Inbuilt Backup and Restore facilities.
Button on Minimap to open or close the World Map or display MetaMap options.
Key bindings for various MetaMap functions.
Full support for Titan Bar.

INSTALLATION:
=============
Extract ALL folders in the archive to the Interface\AddOns\ location. If you wish the Instance maps to be populated with default information, then on first installation you will need to select 'Extended Options' from the MetaMap menu.
Select the 'Database' tab, then click 'Load Imports'. This will enable the default import button, 'Import Instance Notes'. Click on the 'Import' button to import the data.


ISSUES/COMPATIBILITIES:
=======================
Some addons may reset the map to gather location data.
If your map continuously jumps back to your current location when selecting another map,
it will be due to another addon resetting it. In most cases the authors have made changes
to correct this so, download the latest version of any conflicting addon.

Added frame level adjust for TitanBar button. Works correctly again now.
MetaMapTRK now saves options seperately for each character.
...(Currently looking at changing the map routines, which is likely to take some time).
...(Thought i'd get these fixes out in the meantime).

Lag

I am having issues after the patch where if I open metamap in a instance I get a massive lag and sometimes lag so bad it takes like 30 seconds to get the map to close. Any suggestions. I love the MFW add on but wish it was darker because its hard to tell whats not been explored.

Hmmm, the only addon I know that would cause delays on the map is Gatherer, depending on how big the database is for that. I certainly haven't noticed any changes since the patch. Try seeing if it's still doing it with all other addons disabled?

Re: Lag

Hi guys, great mod, other than a bug where if you want to look at another map by selecting it from the drop downs you can't or sometimes it flashes up then puts you back at your current map. Any fixes guys? I want to be able to view maps at other locations.

Cheers!

New NPC lag

Hi, great addon but I got a big lag everytime I mouseover a new NPC as it is added to MetaKB (wowkb). I am fine with it but I don't understand why I still got lag for the next 10 times I check the same "new NPC". Then after those around 10 times it appears I have no more lag. Is it possible to reduce the number of times the "new NPC" is checked and added to the database to only one or two times? I know I can uncheck the "add new target" box or I can set a key to this functions but it is not my wish as I am pretty sure I will always forgot to press the button .

Thanks a lot !

Map Switching problem

hi metahawk... i have the map switching problem too. I have the latest ver of Gatherer but dont have it loading at this time. The only other map program - if it is even one is FuBar location (formerly Boss Panel). However turning it off does not fix the problem. My friend has the same set up as me and is not have any issues with MetaMap. I LOVE this addon and really want to use it. Any suggestions on how to get to to work? I've tried deleting it out of /interface/addons and reinstalling but still wont switch maps. Is there a file located somewhere else that might be corrupted?

thanks in advance for any suggestions

Not sure why you are getting that. I have none at all. 10 times seems rather strange, as it checks EVERY time you mouseover. Perhaps another addon using mouseover is causing the delays? I have noticed a similar effect when using the CombatSentryGizmo and ICPvP addons together. Maybe worth disabling ALL other addons to see if you still get the problem?

It may not be a map related addon as such. You would not class 'Speedometer' as a map related program, yet it still messes with the map to get player coords. Look at the FAQ here to see the known list of addons that cause this. If not, then disable ALL other addons, then enable them one by one to see which is causing the problem.

you sir are a genius! i did have a speedometer type addon. when disabled MetaMap works perfectly. Whew! thanks for your help.

btw... i guess i'm blind cuz I couldnt find any FAQ beyond the "readme.txt" that came with metamap. the Install FAQ button above only takes me to some generic FAQ. is there another more indepth FAQ you are refering to and if so... where exactly is it?

regardless - its fixed and i'm a happy camper.. thanks!

Ok after several tests I still got the lag when I removed all the addons except Metamap. I found a mob (the Kodos in desolace near the gob's house) who always give me a lag when I mouseover it even after 50 checks. If I uncheck "auto tracking" I have no more lags.

Same with the new version 3.2. Any other suggestions? Thanks

I got some news for my lag problem, using metamap 3.20. I added the chat tracking of the updated informations of metamap and I am now sure that the lag I got when I mouseover a mob is due to Metamap because I got a lag whenever I got a message and I have no lag if the mob is not new. So, a new mob will be first added to the database with a small lag (I'm OK with this lag). Then the coords will be updated if I check again the mob and if my position changed. If I don't move I usualy got no more update. But for some mobs, I still have an update of the database even if I don't move at all and so every times I mouseover the mobs (this is the anoying lag). Sometimes it is the first 10 times I mouseover the mob and sometimes it is forever. I also think that from one day to another some NPCs data are lost. Because for sure I checked the most famous NPCs like PvP NPCs at the entrance of the warsong and I continu to have a message of "New NPC added into the database" from day to day.

Any suggestions? I still love this addons and at the same times I'm getting crazy with the burst of lags. I don't think I will be able to play without WoWKB. Thanks.

edit: 3 different messages are written in the chat : new NPC, Coords updated and the annoying Information updated. It is the last one who pop forever for certain NPCs. It is still the same with the version 3.30
