Testing some addons

Hi.

I have tested some of my favorite addons with WoW 5.0.1 (15799) x64:

Healbot 4.3.2.0
Message: Interface\AddOns\HealBot\HealBot_Panel.lua:693: attempt to call global 'GetNumRaidMembers' (a nil value)
option window opens

VuhDo 2.138
Message: Interface\FrameXML\UIPanelTemplates.lua:500: C stack overflow
Message: ...rface\AddOns\VuhDo\VuhDoPlayerTargetEventHandler.lua:68: attempt to call upvalue 'VUHDO_updateBouquetsForEvent' (a nil value)
Message: Interface\FrameXML\UIPanelTemplates.lua:500: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'cursorOffset' (a nil value)
... and many more

Omen 3.1.6
Message: Interface\AddOns\Omen\Omen.lua:1284: attempt to call upvalue 'GetNumPartyMembers' (a nil value)
Message: Interface\FrameXML\UIPanelTemplates.lua:500: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'cursorOffset' (a nil value)
... and many more

Recount r1197
Message: Interface\AddOns\Recount\LazySync.lua:41: attempt to call global 'GetNumRaidMembers' (a nil value)

Quartz 3.0.8
Message: Interface\AddOns\Quartz\modules\Swing.lua:44: table index is nil

Decursive 2.7.0.5
/dcrshow opens bar for priority/ignoring
interface/addons/decursive: all option panels are empty

None is working but thats no surprise. I will check the authors websites for MoP versions.

All of those errors are 100% expected given the specific API changes that have already been posted here:

http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=43091

Once addon authors start testing/updating for the beta, they will publish a version that's actually meant for users (rather than authors themselves) to test on the beta server, and ask for feedback and bug reports. Until they start doing that, though, there's not really much point in loading random addons and posting forum threads with a bunch of random errors.

Finally, "error compilations" like this tend to be very annoying for addon authors to try to keep track of... if you're getting an error or other problem with an addon, the order of priority for reporting generally goes something like this:

+ Ticket tracker for the addon (awesome!)
-
-
-
+ Comment page for the addon (good, but only if there's no ticket tracker)
+ Official forum thread for the addon (good, but only if there's no ticket tracker)
-
-
+ Unofficial forum thread for the addon (okay, but if only if there's nothing better)
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
+ New random forum thread (not very good, but okay if there's really nothing better)

+ New random forum thread with multiple problems from multiple addons (bad)

Heyas, since this might be the place.. and might not.. I have a question

Im basically looking to get an addon picked up by *someone* for MoP.. this addon has worked for almost 2 years without updates.. and hopefully only needs a small update..

If I could be directed to where best to ask this, that would be appreciated...

I did post in the addon comments (the author hasnt been there for ages)...
Im not sure how to do tickets for the addon.. but I assume it would only go to said MIA author

A copy paste of forum posts I made on curse/mmochamp:


An addon similar to, or addon author to update http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/shotwatch (aka Watcher)

This addon is very similar to coolline, sexycooldown, fortexorcist --- with a big exception.
- When skills come off CD/debuffs fade, the pictures of said skills do not disappear, and are stacked in a priority system YOU set up.

This addon works in live atm (there is an issue with a display text, which can be disabled)
It does not work in MoP beta

if anyone has any ideas on how to GET this updated, that would be appreciated as well.. but I don't do programming/lua .. its beyond me Lol.

Start by getting the alpha of Ace3 with some MoP Beta fixes.

Replace the relevant libraries in Watcher\Libs subfolder.
Try running it again.
If you don't have lua errors enabled in the game settings, enable them. (or get an error reporting addon like BugGrabber+Bugsack)

If you get errors when trying to run the addon, post back with those.
Making a ticket with a detailed report on the project site is never wasted, as if another author tries to fix it that's the first place they'll check.

Im sorry - the ace 3 site has always been a bit confusing to me. Should I be downloading the most recent revision from that right hand column?

"Start by getting the alpha of Ace3 with some MoP Beta fixes.

Replace the relevant libraries in Watcher\Libs subfolder.

With regards to replacing the libraries -- Will those be in the ace folder/addon I download, and I simply replace what I can from there?

(libs in the watcher addon folder -- if this is useful info ? not sure.
aceaddon 3.0
aceconfig 3.0
aceconsole 3.0
acedb 3.0
aceevent 3.0
aceGUI 3.0
Acelocale 3.0
Acetimer 3.0
Callbackhandler 1.0
Libaboutpanel
libsharedmedia 3.0
Libstub



edit: Just thought Id throw this out there -- : http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/shotwatch/tickets/
Open tickets from 2010.. No one is looking at this addon.

Tried what I thought you said above -- not sure if I was supposed to run the ace3 as an addon, or just cannablize the libs for watcher
