Re: Re: Great addon - Middle Button/Tracking & Feature request!

Originally posted by glamrockcop
Open BasicMinimap.lua in notepad and scroll to the bottom and change the line...

elseif btn == "MiddleButton" then

to...

elseif btn == "LeftButton" then

This will swap the left and middle buttons around. Thus ping is changed to middle button and tracking to left button.
I have middle button mapped to different function so I had the same problem but wanted to keep the left button to ping. I use XBar mod which has a pre-built bar for just tracking that works the same as the tracking button except it is expandable/collapsible so you can see all the trackings at one time. You can remove or disable the other parts of xbar that you don't want to use they are each individual mini-addons in the package and are listed in the addons page.

OH AND BTW I LOVE THIS ADDON!!!

One question - is there a way to make it so that you can have two sizes/positions defined of the mini-map which can be swapped between with a key-binding. I like to have a BIG mini-map while traveling and farming and a smaller mini-map otherwise.

EDITED: Oh and btw how about an option to have it switch to one of the map sizes upon combat and back when exit combat?

Thanks again for a nice addon!

Your post confuses me, the ability to change minimap "keybinding" is in the GUI, you don't need to edit the file.

But no, I wont be adding that feature, sorry.

Isokay didn't hurt to ask - I still love your mod.

Naw, I wasn't saying edit a file - the keybinding I was talking about was for the toggle between sizes not the show/hide. But thats okay I understand keep it simple it does what it is supposed to do and does it very nicely.

Thanks again for a nice addon.

Question Border Color By Class

Nice mod, I was wondering if you could implement a check box in the border section that will allow it to color the border by your class.

Just thought I'd ask..

Great job,

I'll be releasing v1.6 soon, this is basically a call to translators to update the new stuff if they want it in before release.

So is there anyway to set the minimap differently for 2 characters? I kept wondering why the minimap would be messed up when I switched between my toons.

Maybe, you could add an option to show zone name? Just above the minimap (with background optional) or just under the top op the minimap (So it will lay over your map a bit, w/o a background of course)

Something tells me you thought of such an option, and you didn't care or didn't want it. And of course I appreciate you're choice

Your entire post shows you have absolutely no clue how the memory system works, or how blame is added for shared libraries, and as so, I would encourage you not to even look at memory usage. BM uses less that 100kb, not that it matters, since it doesn't affect your performance AT ALL.

Do research before criticizing work done by addon authors.
