Posting more or signing up for a premium membership are the only ways I know of.

Looking forward to the new updater, it'll be nice for the WoWI only mods I use.

3.1 update hell

I understand why you've decided to block wowmatrix on the day where it's most helpful to users, but since you have no functional updater it's putting users at a serious disadvantage. Won't you at least consider putting up a link to your "alpha" updater since the current one appears to be completely non-funcitonal now?? Curse did the right thing by revving their updater into a useful tool.

I'd like to reiterate the request for access to the alpha. Anything is better than opening zip files one after another and checking ToC's to see if they've been updated.

Whahuh? There's the updated list right there on the right side of the WoWI homepage... Theres the favorites feed that TELLS you when an addon has been updated... Why would you ever need to unzip and check tocs? I'm just sayin...

Yeah, even I don't do that. I check the date updated for each addon, which is obviously still better than checking tocs.

They didn't. But the original updater is still available for download. Some people have absolutely 0 problems with it. Others aren't so lucky.

Those involved in alpha are "friends and family." Well, friends really, because my family doesn't really know anything about WoW.

Ah, I see. Need a new bff?

I hope that the new updater is more automated, because having to confirm each addon is less than ideal, especially when you're an addon whore like me.

I would just like to say (as an ex-WM user who didn't know anything about it's negative effects), that I am not at all opposed to buying or subscribing to a client from WoWI if it ends up working as hoped.

Question

I'm am an avid user of both Curse and WI. I was wondering since you have partnered to destroy wowmatrix is there plans of both updaters taking advantage of both sites.

Here's what I mean. I have several addons I use that are only available here and the CC doesn't updated them. I also have several addons that are only on Curse and I know you're updater won't update them.

So I guess what I'm asking is for a joint venture to allow each updater to access the others database and update from both sites.


Yes yes I know just ask the addon others to get their addons up on both sites, but some authors don't like WI or Curse respectively so it's hard to convice them to post/update their addons on a site they might not support.

I had this error as well, and found out it was because I had a space in my username, I have posted the fix here: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...190#post127190
(sorry, too lazy to retype it)

As WoWMatrix is banned by wowinterface and curse, is there a chance to release beta version of updater to the public?

That amount of addons, that i have for all my different chars is too big to go trough manualy.

Not only did they mess up WoWMatrix, they, intentionally or not, stopped WUU from working, either, so my WoWInterface mods are lanquishing because they don't have an updater, I've switched all I can over to Curse because of the Curse Client, but there are still several WoWI mods I want to use.

After reading every single post in this thread... I am quickly reminded of the good ole' days where we had to work just as hard as the authors to install the mods to our games, lol.

I'm excited to see the new WI Updater too, of course, but come'on guys, it can't be 'that' hard to Download, UnZIP 'n Move now is it? :-D
