NOTE: Your friends, guild, group and raid members DO NOT need this AddOn installed to be able to command you (E.g. to make you follow them). There are however a few features which do require them to have this AddOn installed.

#############################
DESCRIPTION
#############################


Follow Felankor is primarily an Auto Follow AddOn (It allows Friends, Guild, Group and Raid members to make you follow them if for example you go AFK).
It also has many other useful features whether you like to Dual/Multi Box, level/quest with friends, run raids or dungeons or just have fun with your
mates. Please read below for a full list of features.

#############################
FEATURES
#############################


1) Allows friends and group/raid/guild members to make you follow them (With the option to prevent this if you are using the auction house, npc or looting etc).
2) Automatically resumes following the last person you followed after combat ends. Casting a spell will cancel Auto Resume. (Disabled by default)
3) Allows your friends and group/raid/guild members to make you mount and dismount.
4) Auto accepts resurrect from friends and group/raid/guild members.
5) Auto accepts group invites from friends and guild members.

7) Auto accepts quests and shared quests or escorts. (Disabled by default)
8) Notifies the person you are following and/or your DualBox Master if you have low health. (NOTE: Both players must have Follow Felankor v2.5.0 or higher for this feature to work)
9) Allows your friends and guild members to make your character do emotes (e.g. sit, stand, wave, point, fart etc) (Don't worry, this can be disabled!)
10) Allows you to ban certain players from sending you whisper commands.
11) Option to automatically create a set of macros that send whisper commands to your targeted player.
12) Automatically announces to your group/raid when you go AFK; telling them that they can make you follow them using the !ff_follow whisper command.
13) Tells you when another player starts following you of their own accord. (NOTE: Both players must have Follow Felankor v2.1.0 or higher for this feature to work)
14) Shows you if group/party members are using Follow Felankor by adding an icon on their party portrait.

My wife and I love this addon. Have you thought of making free starter accounts to update/test this addon?

Attacking

Hello there, as far as i can see its a great addon, the only problem is I can't get my secondary toon to attack what the primary toon is. Please let me know if im doing this wrong or if there is a command I'm missing.

Auto accept group/party invite whisper

Hey, love the add-on. However, I have a problem with the auto whisper from getting a party invite from the accepted groups of people. I use WoW Instant Messenger so every time someone invites me it pops up on the screen, really annoying.

So for the others that would prefer this, here is the quick simple fix.

1. Open FFEvents.lua in a text editor. (I use TextPad)
2. Find line #185 or the line, "FF_SendWhisper(FFMSG_PARTY_AUTO_ACCEPTED, FF_Sender);" this can be found in the event PARTY_INVITE_REQUEST area.
3. Add -- at the beginning so it is now, "--FF_SendWhisper(FFMSG_PARTY_AUTO_ACCEPTED, FF_Sender);"
4. Save, close, and restart WoW.

Pretty much it is just commenting that line out. Enjoy

but when i wisper !ff_fly to it it seems to remove the set mount and mounting a random flying mount after that

(x-53 is the set mount before the wisper but after the wisper it says 'not set')
same goes for trying to use a ground mount

am i doing something wrong or is this a bug?


Thymon
I'm glad you like my addon and thank you for reporting this to me. I'm not aware of this if it is a bug. Could you try setting your static flying mount and then type the following in chat and tell me what it says:

/script FFDebug(FF_Static_Flying_Mount);

You should see something like:

[FF] Debug: X

(Note: X should be a number)

Thanks,

It's been a long time since I wrote most of the whispers. If I remember correctly there are a couple of whispers which can't be disabled. Have you tried unticking "Enable All" (or untick individual items) on the Announcement Options interface?

Felankor
Yes, I completely disabled announcements and the whispers still occur. I'm not trying to mute the whispers that are needed (like the actual !ff_follow) but the responses - like "[FF] Attempting to follow you" or "[FF] Following Aalwein" or "[FF] Your group invite was automatically accepted by Follow Felankor." Things like that. I also want to mute the group messages. Essentially I'm looking for the same implementation as UsefulExtras, but I prefer FollowFelankor since you've added the raid popup when follow gets broken!

Basically I'm looking to silence the addon of everything but the command whispers.


---edit: after testing it during raiding tonight with all announcements turned off, it seems like it is working as intended. no extra [FF] messages came up except for whisper responses to commands. So that said, once you have a command for "mount best option" FF hits every mark for me. (as an aside, perhaps you could have an option to use the "/rdm random" command from MountRandomMount. That would take care of mounting!)

Also, didn't there used to be an option to stop each whisper response? I don't need the "xxx is following you" or "xxx automatically accepted your invite" - in fact, the only whisper I really need is the one saying "xxx has stopped following you." Can I disable all but that one whisper?

Unfortunately this is not possible. The reason we are now able to make another character mount up, is because Blizzard introduced a new set of functions specifically for mounts. These functions won't work with other spells.

It is very unlikely that it will ever be possible to cast heal or attack spells etc because this would enable people to create mods/cheats which could basically play the game for you. Same reason they do not allow character movement from addons.

Sorry,
