Simple Spy
Version: 1.2.4
by: Bleckpan [More]
This is an addon that will notify you of nearby enemies, it is helpful on PvP servers to avoid being ganked by the opposite faction.

You can use "/ss" or "/sspy" to hide the frame from view, this will also keep it from messaging you. Putting a number after the slash command will change the amount of time before it will beep about the same person.

Upcoming Features
  • Show how many allies are near your enemy
  • Show the levels of your enemies
  • Make fade times of your enemies able to be customized
  • Alert you when your target or mouse over is an enemy.

When you stumble upon a bug, please make sure that you have the latest version installed. If you do, please push the button to the right labeled "Bugs", post any info you may think is relevant.

Any and all suggestions are welcome in the portal as well, by pushing "Features".

Thanks!

Yes, this is by design, I couldn't figure out an elegant way of dealing with the spam that would ensue. If you have any ideas, let me know, and I'll see if I can include them with the next update.

Version 1.2.3

I just uploaded version 1.2.3 that may adress your issues with the text not showing up. If it still doesn't work, expect a new version in the next week or so that should for sure fix your issues.

It shouldn't have any effect, everything should be automatically localized to your language. But the thing is, I can't replicate your guys' problem at all. It's difficult to test if you've fixed something when it isn't broken for you in the first place. I've tried several different fresh installs of wow to no avail.

The only thing I could think of with the CN client is that it may restrict english characters in addon-created frames if you don't bypass it, but I doubt that is the case.

Nope, there aren't any limitations, all enemies that cast something are detected. I don't have a problem with a clean install of wow, without any addons or saved variables. The only problem that I can find is when the default game font is changed. I've tested it thoroughly with a clean install or without any addons. I'll have to get back to you if I can see what the problem is. If you try a previous version, does it still not work?

It seems to be a conflict between addons. Could I have both of you send me a list of the addons you guys are using? This forum post will tell you how to do it:http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...rting-purposes, then you can PM it to me, or post it here in the comments. Just want to make sure that there isn't more than one addon that it is conflicting with.

Thanks, and sorry for the trouble.

Sorry for the late reply, it has been quite busy for me lately. If you enable Interface Options -> Help -> Show Lua Errors, does it give you any errors?

Same as above, do you see any errors? It seems to work for me when changing to the latest version. I'll make a new version soon that may fix any issues.
