Dopie's Arena Mod (KNOW your enemy!)
Dopie's Arena Mod displays extended character information regarding your opponents in the arena. The server extracts the data out of the blizzard armory website nightly, just download a new battlegroup database file and your up to date with the latest info! Is that mage your playing a fire or ice spec? How far down into holy/disc is that priest? Find out with Dopie's Arena Mod! The mod is 100% legal and uses the WoW UI script.
The UI mod will append the armory information to your tooltip. It also supports tinytip (its real nice with tinytip!) If you hold down the CTRL key while you target someone, it will popup a window with the opponents information. You can have up to 5 windows open at a time. The windows will remeber where they were, so place them in a spot you like and they will always come up there.
In order to get the UI's data, you MUST go to http://armory.webhop.net/ this is a server I have setup that extracts the armory data nightly. From this site, you select which battlegroup you belong to, then download its data file. This is the file my ui mod uses to display the opponents armory information from within WoW

--Popup windows will now auto size themselves.
--ARENA MODE enabled. There is a new config option called Arena Mode. When this is checked it will auto popup the info windows for you when your in a rated arena match. It will also communicate with other teamates in the arena and display the popup windows on their screen as well. This will ensure a much easier time to get the enemies info up on your screen. The previous way without arena mode was rather cumbersome. I think people will like this new feature!
Step 1.) Close out of World of Warcraft (must be closed down all the way!!).
Step 2.) Download Dopie's ArenaInfo mod
Step 3.) unzip into your WOW addon directory.
Step 4.) Open a browser and goto http://armory.webhop.net/Step 5.) Click the Arena Info Mod link. This is where you download the data to be used.
Step 4.) Select your Battle group, then click download, save the file into the following directory: (example)
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME\SavedVariables\
Step 5.) Load WoW, addon should display info saying its loaded. Hold down the CTRL button and click on a target to bring up its UI config options.
Common problems (if the armory data isnt being displayed):
-->You most likely downloaded it into the wrong SavedVariables directory. Please ensure it was saved to the proper savedvariables folder.
-->The download file got corrupt. Sometimes when download the data file, it will get corrupt. This doesnt happen very often, but it can happen.
-->If it was working, then you login and its no longer working... Sometimes WoW will corrupt the data file. WoW doesnt seem to handle large data files over 30 megs. If this keeps happeneing to you, download a small data file by using the start and end rating filter when you download the file.
