Tooltip background

Hi,

I made a little modification to color the tooltip background like the border.

I modified the line where you set the backdrop color to black:
Code:
self:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0, 1)
To this:
Code:
r = 0.08 * r
g = 0.08 * g
b = 0.08 * b
self:SetBackdropColor(r, g, b, 0.85)
The only problem with it is that it shows full white tooltip bg when you mouse over some item or profession spell in the profession panel. Maybe you could add some workaround, I was just playing with lua a bit back then.

TipTac has this feature too now.

The error only appeared with itemlinks in trade channel and it was a "Usage: GetItemQualityColor('index')" type message.
Sorry I don't have the stack trace...

On the bright side I cannot reproduce it with 1.1 so... sorry for the false alarm
(should have checked I'm updated to latest version).

All is well with Chippu 1.1 and wow 2.2.0

Re: 2.2.0 PTR issue (only)

It would be nice if you could provide me with the exact error, and possibly the stack trace of it. The 2.2 PTR currently doesn't start under Wine, so there's not much I can do without it.

edit: Friend of mine told me that 1.1 of Chippu is working fine on the 2.2 PTR. I also noticed that you said the error was on line 47, could you try updating to 1.1 and see if it fixes your issue?

2.2.0 PTR issue (only)

Possibly because of some change to the GetItemInfo code by Blizzard,
Chippu gives an error on tips.lua:47 local r, g, b = GetItemQualityColor(quality)
on the 2.2.0 PTR only (not a live issue)

I'm guessing there has been a change to GetItemInfo to support this:
* You will be able to use item:N, where N is the ID of the item, instead of the item name in macros. One of the advantages of this is that it will work even if you don't currently have the item, as long as it is in your item cache (e.g. GetItemInfo("item:N") returns non-nil)
functionality in macros and that's what's causing Chippu issues.

Just a heads up.

Great little addon btw

This addon has my attention.

Too bad I'm a sucker of eyecandy, and I know why haste has his panties up in the crotch about Skinner.

Most don't know that it was actually haste that started skinner way back. It was named oSkin and it was extremely easy. Suddenly it started to grow like a horse on steroids and it tried to skin everything. Then it grew to the abomination it is now and got in to the point where enough was enough for haste.

If he doesn't like the addon and can't support it, don't make him feel bad about it, it's not his fault.

Most parts of skinner is beyond horrible when it comes to how it's coded, and what it does. I still regret writing the initial code and letting it morph into what it is today.

I looked into the beasts code and came out with the following solution: Torture the author of the abomination to add a option to prevent it from spreading it's disease to the tooltip (or at least the border / both). It's the only viable solution. I could have Chippu completely tear the insides of it apart and re-attach them to prevent it from modifying the tooltip, but I see no reason to add more code to Chippu the necessary.

Thanks. ^_^
How does it not work with Skinner?
(I currently don't have any net connection, which pretty much render me unable to test myself)

Why, not every mod has to be Ace'd to be good.
