Ding Photo

Version: 1.2
by: Gerjarran [More]

Takes a photo when your character levels or 'dings'.
An ACE'ed version of Ding Recorder by thejoester.

This is my first real AddOn. It is just something I've put together using "Ding Recorder" and the ACE2 tutorials.

I really liked thejoester's idea and used Ding Recorder on all my characters, but he didn't seem to be maintaining it any more. So I've 'updated' it a little.

I hope you like it.


Commands
/dp about - show the about box
/dp guild - toggle notification of guild when you level
/dp hideui - toggle hiding of UI when taking the photo

1.1 : Fixed timing of when screen shot was taken, to include star effect.
1.2 : Fixed reported of level.
Updated for 2.4

The version number in the Addon Information section shows "1.2", but the download is called "DingPhoto11.zip" (implying version 1.1). Also, the file date of DingPhoto.lua inside the ZIP is a couple hours earlier than shown in Addon Information. The current download is the same one I used when I reported the problem with it.

So v1.2 (that shows in the changelog "Fixed reported of level.") isn't available, meaning it still has the same problems previously reported and its still useless.

Hope we can see v1.2 and/or some other usable version soon.
Took a look at the code myself because I missed a ding screenshot addon where the hideui part actually works every time

I found out that calling "UnitLevel("player")" will most likely give the wrong level if it's called in the "PLAYER_LEVEL_UP" event or short after, the wowwiki then told that using "arg1" would be a better choice. So I tried replacing "UnitLevel("player")" with "arg1" and it seems to work fine now.
I don't use the guild announcement but the uierrorframe shows the right level now and I can't imagine guild announce wouldn't work.

What you have to do is open up the DingPhoto.lua find line 58 and 64 then change "UnitLevel("player")" with "arg1" so the lines look like this:
Code:
UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage("Level " .. arg1,1,0,1,1.0,5)
Code:
SendChatMessage("Ding! - I just reached level " .. arg1, "GUILD", nil,nil);
Hope it helps a bit

Yes, this is not too well done yet. Leveled an alt from 36 to 37 and the purple text in the middle of the screen showed "Level 36". As well as reporting to the guild the wrong level (the previous level, not the one I got to).

You can access options for disabling the guild tell by typing in.../dingphoto or /dp.

This needs more work before its ready for use; it should have been marked as a beta. The problems have nothing to do with this being Ace or not (btw, Ace3 is out now and is much improved). Its the core code of DingPhoto that needs a lot more work.
