DoubleWide  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.7-30000
by: Iriel [More]
This is a simple AddOn for a simple idea -- pull the quest log into side-by-side areas so it's double wide instead of cramping the size of the quest list.

Original conception, and graphics by Kudane.
0.7 - Updated for WoW 3.0 and properly supports an empty quest log

Hello Iriel. I use this add on in conjunction with Lightheaded and very much like the combination with one exception. As I had already previously posted in Lightheaded and post it here.

One slight annoyance using this mod. I typically open quest log to see what is available and at the same time I would been able to open the macro window to type in a LFG macro for LFG channel or local chat the title of the quests. But now with the double wide the macro closes and I have to shuttle back and forth between the macro window and quest log to type in the titles. Is there a way to move the quest log window or temp close the double wide window so I could keep both macro and quest log open?

So my question would be is there way to move the window or is there a toggle to temp close the doublewide so I can open the macro and quest log at the same time or is it you can add this feature?

This is a fantastic addon, and works with other quest log addons too. But one thing is disturbing me. I would like to have option to change alpha/background alpha on quest log, it takes my whole screen so its hard to travel while looking your quest log.

Any chance of getting this updated to play nice with 2.3? It's creating all sorts of taint errors now.

Can this zip be updated to have less irritating folder path within it? It's currently nested in DoubleWide-0.7-20300\Doublewide

I also found a lot of taint problems from DoubleWide. Let me know if you need to see my taint log.

Is there an alternative addon to this one?

Then I would recommend not using Doublewide. It is specifically designed for those who play on larger monitors where both windows side by side do not take up the entire screen.

While I understand the idea for customizing the alpha and such, doublewide is intentionally "option free" and "bells/whistle free" As described, it is a simple concept, and if it does not work for you, there are many more robust quest addons out there.

See my reply below, it may answer your question (which is "no it is not possible with this mod"). Of course he and/or I could always make some tweaks and releasing it as "doublewide deluxe" or something. But for *this* mod, it is not possible.

2.3 Broken

I love this mod; I can almost not play without it; and it doesn't even show up in the list with 2.3. PLEASE FIX IT!

Thanks in advance.

It works fine in 2.3 both Iriel and I have tested it. Check for double folders (i some how nested in an extra folder) make sure it's "Interface/AddOns/DoubleWide/xxxx (files)" It should NOT be "Interface/AddOns/DoubleWide/DoubleWide/xxxx (files)".

After updating my mods (DoubleWide included), I was getting an odd error sometimes after killing a mob. Wouldn't happen always, just sometimes.

Then, after clearing Cache and even removing some less needed mods, I used the "/console taintLog 1" command to create a taint.log file.

This is what I found in there:

Any help on this issue? The game works fine if I use that command as I won't get the error but it will be silently logged instead, but ideally, I'd want to get rid of it completely...

(Awesome add-on, btw )

Kud, that worked! One of you guys should re-up the .zip with a corrected index just so no one else has this problem (don't know why I didn't check, noob mistake on my part). Thanks a bunch, works great now!

I'll watch for errors and post a taint if anything goes wrong. I used to write EQL updates; real life kept me from it, and now I'd rather just use yours -- so keep up the good work!

Iriel already caught it and corrected it, so all is good.

Try removing ANY other addons that effect the quest log. I am betting the issue is there. As quoted above, that looks like another addon that could be causing your issue to bleed into DWQL.

Eheh: I missed that one! I'll give it a try later on tonight and will post back the results.
