"realmName" no longer a valid CVar

Any instances of GetCVar("realmName") should probably be replaced with GetRealmName().

I'm not sure how early GetRealmName() returns valid information, but you might have to wait until PLAYER_LOGIN.

Way to go Blizzard! Not even a release note!

I did a mass search and replace (using grepWin) but that isn't enough. Either I play with no addons or instead of playing, I spend the rest of the day doing a binary search for which addons are busted.

CVar still returns data for me on 5.4.0 (EU so no maintenance yet)

Is that a 5.4.1 thing?

How about changing directories to the AddOns and doing:

find . -type f -exec grep "GetCVar" {} /dev/null \; | grep realmName

Should tell you what still uses realmName (or whatever you choose to replace that with).

Apparently. I've just been bitten by it after the new download.

Since WoW doesn't (officially) run on Linux, I used winGrep which is a Windows version of grep with a GUI.

Sorry for the "Mac-only" find command. I thought Windows had adopted a bunch of the Unix commands a while back. I don't have anything more modern than Windows NT and I used to use Unix commands in that.

The same seems to be for SetCVar("raidFramesDisplayIncomingHeals", 1 ) which is used in nUI. Looking at UnitFrame.lua in the 5.4.1 FrameXML it looks like they removed that one as well. Does this mean that all cvars have been removed I wonder.

Probably just the ones they added function calls for in 5.4.

And apparently you can't overwrite WORLDMAP_WINDOWED_SIZE anymore without causing a guaranteed taint error every time you open the world map.

There goes easy resizing.

Edit: this workaround was added to Mapster:

Code:
setfenv(WorldMapFrame_OnShow, setmetatable({ UpdateMicroButtons = function() end }, { __index = _G }))

No need to be on Linux to have a full-feature command line toolset.
