TipTacTalents - Show Player Talents in Tooltips
Using this addon, you will see the talent specialization of players added to the tooltip.

A cache up to 25 is stored for the last scanned players, so you quickly can see their talents again without having to wait for talents to load.

To avoid inspect issues, TipTacTalents will not request talents if you have an inspect frame open.
That includes the default inspect frame, as well as the addon Examiner.

There is no command line switch or configurable options for TipTacTalents when used alone.
Using TipTac and TipTacOptions however, you can change the cache size and the option to turn it on or off.

This addon is also included as part of the TipTac package, but is released here on it's own, for those who do not need special tip customisations.
You can find the main TipTac addon package here:

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Sep 05
- Now shows the talent spec even when the tooltip shows yourself.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Sep 01
- Removed some remnant debug code.
- Fixed a talent inspection issue that could occur, if the inspection window was opened from the unitframe's right click menu.
- Localised the string used for when a person has no specialization.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Aug 30
- Changed the TOC version to 50001 for the 5.0 Mists of Pandaria patch.
- Moved inspect frame check to a helper function.
- Added a second inspect frame check for the scheduled inspect.
- Modified the code to support the changes in the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
- Removed the InspectPaperDollFrame.lua @ line 23 inspect workaround.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 May 20
- Changed the TOC version to 40300 for the 4.3 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2011 Sep 29
- Changed the TOC version to 40200 for the 4.2 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Nov 23
- Will no longer clear the inspect data when done. This was causing an issue for inspection addons, as the data they requests, was getting cleared by TipTacTalents.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Nov 17
- Added option to only show talents for people in your party or raid.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 27
- Actually fixed the "InspectPaperDollFrame.lua" error this time, no really, I swear!
- The variable "lastInspectRequest" used to throttle how often inspecting is done, by checking when the last request happened, has been made into a global, meaning other addons are welcome to use this as well.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 19
- Showing talents on your own tooltip, no longer overwrites the previous person in the cache.
- Made a workaround for the "InspectPaperDollFrame.lua" error that were happening once you had used the default inspection frame at least once.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 14
- Major rework of how TipTacTalents is allowed to inspect, these changes have been done to lessen the strain on the inspection routines.
- There is now a delay of 0.2 seconds from when the tooltip is shown, to when the talent request is done. This was to avoid wasting requests when moving the mouse quickly over a crowd of people.
- An inspect request can never happen more often, than once every two second.
- Unit GUID is now used to make sure the returning data from an inspect request, is indeed who we wanted data on.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 12
- Changed the TOC version to 40000 for the 4.0.1 pre Cataclysm patch.
- Made compatible with the changes to the Cataclysm API.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Feb 27
- Changed the TOC version to 30300 for the 3.3 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Aug 13
- Changed the TOC version to 30200 for the 3.2 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 May 17
- Cleaned up the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Apr 17
- Changed the TOC version to 30100 for the 3.1 patch.
- Will now show the proper spec, for people using their secondary spec.
- The tooltip line added will now be localised.
- Optimised the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 28
- The tooltip line added will now be localised.
- Optimised the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 13
- Occasionally the TipTac fadeout could get halted because of an update from TipTacTalents, I've fixed this by not allowing TipTacTalents to call "GTT:Show()" to resize the tip during fadeout.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 12
- After some more testing with adjusting the trottle time, it seems that compeltely removing it, that is setting it to zero, actually seems like the best solution, at least this is where I found the least mixed talents. Please let me know if you're still seeing wrong specs in the tips.
- Made some minor code changes.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Nov 05
- Increased the throttle time for talent queries from 0.25 to 0.75 sec, hopefully that fixes some more of the problems with wrong talents listed on tips. But they will still occur with rapid mouse moving.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Oct 22
- TipTacTalents will no longer request talents when the default inspect window is open, just like it already does when the Examiner addon is open.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Oct 16
- Changed the TOC version to 30000 for the Wrath of the Lich King patch.
- When Examiner is installed, and opened, TipTacTalents will not request talent info, as this would cause problems in Examiner's talent tab.
- If the player has no talents, it will no longer state the name of the first talent tab and (0/0/0), but instead: "No Talents".
- Changed the default cache size up to 25.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Jun 11
- Changed the default cache size up to 15.
- Player inspection has been throttled, hopefully that fixes some problem with talents showing up on the wrong player.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Apr 06
- Added some different formatting styles for the Talent line in the tip, you have to edit the Lua file to change it though, by uncommenting some lines. Look at line 17 and after.
- Removed the obsolete 2.3.3 inspect checking.
- Fixed a nil error that could happen under special circumstances.
- TipTacTalents should no longer block you from getting the talents of same faction players who are marked for PvP.
- Cached players who are now out of range should now show with the cached data.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Mar 24
- Initial Release.

Yes, but in 2.4 it is getting restricted, and you will not be able to see the talents if they are flagged for PvP. It will still work for your own faction though, and the opposite faction if they are not flagged.

You know, this was the only thing that got be bummed about switching from CowTip to TipTac, the loss of talents showing. Sure tiptac showed the actual point distribution (12/47/789430 blah) but I really don't care about it and sometimes it's hard to know exactly what spec that person is if you really only care about your own class. Cowtip could just show Holy, or Shadow or whatever they were, even hybrid etc. Thank you so much for bringing this feature to tiptac.

This addon works completely independent of TipTac, but installing TipTac is recommended to enchance the tooltip further. This addon is also a part of TipTac.
This is confusing a bit, it's independent but also a part of? I think you could word this a little better :P

This addon currently have no options to change, but it is fairly simple to change how it formats the talent line by editing some LUA. I already added some commented out lines for the next release so it will be simple to just change manually.
As for that particular line, yes I could perhaps formulate it better, I'll try and change it so it sounds "better".

So its currently normal, and intended tha i cant inspect Talents on Allianz (i am horde) in the Battlegrounds? I thought it is a Bug. Because remembrance etc. also cant inspect it anymore.

So whats the change at all? And whats the point, so in Arena i can inspect Talents from Horde but not Allianz? Sounds very unlogical for me.

Btw. i cant inspect myself with this Addon here, its alwas Loading, and sometimes it shows me a TalentTree of another Class, im using the German Client.



greets

The inspect rules was changed in 2.4, you can now inspect everyone, gear, honor and talents, EXCEPT players from the opposite faction which is PvP enabled. With the final release of 2.4, the one which is Live now, it seems there is a bug which makes it impossible to inspect your own honor and talent info, this used to work on the latest PTR patch I tried.

Weird, did this happen just once, or do you get the error again and again?

I cannot fix a problem I cannot reproduce, TipTacTalents should only do stuff when the GameTooltip shows a unit, so there should really be no way for this error to happen when you are browsing the Auction House. Disable all addons except this and see if it still happens.

Its not just the auction house. Seems to happen with a lot of NPC"S.
Well, if you can't debug your own mod, I will delete this mod. Way too many errors.

It's not like I earn money on making this, so you don't really threaten me with that attitude. Instead you should try and find out exactly what conditions it takes for this error to happen, be more specific, because I am unable to reproduce the problem.

Anyways, in case you are even interested, the error should be fixed for the next release.

Working fine now
And I just installed tiptac. Wow very nice! Thx
I had a small bug with tip tac. But I can't reproduce it.
I changed options on one toon. Then logged on my main. Bought up optons and it was blank. The menu on the left was there and so was the three bottom buttons. Only happened once so far. No biggie
Edit:
I have seen this bug again on the options menu in TipTac. This time it wasn't completely blank. If I chose general, only a few of the options on the right were shown. Same with Seecial, Colors, and all the rest. Reloading the GUI fixes it.
