Help to update an addon to version 5.2 (DotaKillSound)

Hi, I'm new to the forum and my knowledge of lua are null, so we sought help from you who are professionals.

In the past used an addon for pvp, called DotaKillSound. The last version of the game supports this addon is 3.3.5a. I tried to change some of the files but I have not run the addon. Looking for information about lua, I found this forum and wanted to know if anyone can review the code of this addon and tell me if the code is not too old and if you can upgrade to the version of the game that is the 5.2. In general I want to know if you have an easy solution because if you have to rewrite the entire code addon, I'm not interested. I have no idea lua programming.

Would be very grateful if any of you can retrieve this addon, is truly one of the best addon I've seen and I would like to play with this addon.

The game doesn't support wav files any more, so even if someone fixed the script it wouldn't work.

You would have to replace all of the sound files with mp3s or oggs.

I have not tried that actually did not know. I will change the format of the sound files and then I comment and it works.

Thank you!

I changed the format to wav files and modified the lua but still not working.

And shows me an error:


1x DotaKillSoundUU-2.4.3\dotakillsounduu-2.4.3.lua:52: attempt to index global "this" (a nil value)

DotaKillSoundUU-2.4.3\dotakillsounduu-2.4.3.lua:52: in function "DotaKillSoundUU_OnLoad"

<string>:"*:OnLoad":1: in function <string>:"*:OnLoad":1

Locals:
self = <unnamed> {
0 = <userdata>
}
If anyone knows how to fix this error would be very grateful.

Thanks!

If you could upload the addon with your modified mp3 files then i could be able to make it work with 5.2 for you.

Just the changed files, replace the originals. (warning: drycoded)

Edit 11-Apr-2013:, updated the attachment with a missed file
(.toc wasn't included, it would fail to save settings due to renaming of SV)
