Do you have any idea of whether or not addons will be enabled on Classic? What API they will be using?

Kanegasi 06-26-18 01:50 PM

I'm sure you saw the blog post, but this is all we know so far. I would assume the API would be the same, just adjusted so that objects dealing with specific stuff like garrisons or guild bank would simply be missing. Core stuff like handling frames and textures or all the new mixins would probably be there.

Maybe there will be Carbonite for classic or maybe not, this is our hobby not work. But first it must be released Beta or PTR, without access to working version we cant do nothing.

Is there any way to know if you did create a classic version?
 
Like through email or something? And for that matter is there a way that we can donate to the cause?

There is many work on Retail version of this addon. So Classic version will be released but dont know when.

DXMage 05-14-19 11:18 AM

That is too bad. It was a great addon for the vanilla days. Now that there is a date set of 8-27-2019 for the release I hope that there is little work required to adapt the current carbonite to it.

I dont have time to update all functions to Live Releases... So i will not work on Classic version. But someone else can make Classic version. This addon is opensource with GPL licence.

Without knowing a lot about the Classic API, I have to ask if an older version might work? I understand that there would not be support for two versions.

Xrystal 05-16-19 11:49 AM

An older version probably wouldn't work out of the box as the addon api probably is the same as the current addon api with just game functionality being different based on the version. It will probably be the case that anyone wishing to do a Classic version of Carbonite would have to see which version has the least changes to make and do any necessary changes.

For example.. the Questing API system will probably be the same as current but the access to World Quests probably won't work. The Mapping API system similarly may be the same as current with access to Maps unavailable to Classic being removed.

Of course, until we can see how they have implemented Classic, this is all theoretical.

None of the versions will work. All maps are different, quests etc. Many things needs to be changed to make current version to work in Classic.

Im not making Classic version of Carbonite, so there will be only support for Live version.

AkiRa84 06-28-19 05:59 AM

Just to clarify. WoW Classic is using the BfA 8.0.1 client now. So Carbonite Maps for 8.0.1 should simply work out of the box.
Just that the maps would be inconsistent. But we can probably dig up a pre-Cata version of Carbonite and replace the maps.

Unfortunatly the pre-Cata versions don't have a GPL license.

Does anyone still have contact to the original developers of Carbonite to ask them to rerelease a pre-Cata version of
Carbonit, e.g. Carbonite 3.340 (*), with a GPL license here: http://www.carboniteaddon.com/download.shtml ?

(*) Wowinterface -> Carbonite Maps -> Other Files -> Carbonite 3.34 06/26/10 04:59 AM

(no code modifications are required, just a license change, the Carbonite.lua of the 3.340 version is already not encrypted, unlike early versions)

I had some experimental(!) success with modifications to Carbonite 8.2 and to the first GPL release (CarboniteGPL_5041)
on the test servers this weekend, but without the pre-Cata quest data, POI, ... it will not be were useful anyway.

Although I was able to use "Nx.Que1" (quest data) from Carbonite 3.340 in the modified CarboniteGPL_5041 (ignoring errors) and to track one classic test quest afterwards, such a solution will not be distributable, because of the license problems.

ircdirk 08-13-19 12:50 PM

Maybe when i play a little on Classic ill do version for it. All quest data can be scrapped from WoWHead and Maps from dbc files... So there is hope for Classic Carbonite version... but i cant promise anything or any date.

Othragon 08-15-19 10:44 AM

When I started in late TBC I could not see myself playing without Cabonite's googlemaps like frame. Used until the day I quit, and now returning to Classic nothing complement many of our UI suites better than this gem ported for Classic, which is just the Bfa launch client in disguise.

Here's to hoping you guys find time and motivation to port it!

salemn18 08-24-19 09:14 PM

I will be waiting to find out if this comes to fruition. Also willing to help test.

Let's try to downgrade Carbonite v2.4.3 to v1.13
 
So far I've only managed to debug Carbonite Quest and use it even when it was not oficially updated when new patches were released, but I'll try this one. I found oldest version of Carbonite for WoW patch v2.4.3, will try to find out how badly it will be to fix it for Classic v1.13, if it will be possible. (link for Carbonite 2.4.3: https://legacy-wow.com/tbc-addons/carbonite/ )
The worst thing in this case is that I didn't find much of informations about how WoW API is different between v2.4 and v1.13, so it will be mostly try and error which is very time consuming process and there is a little hope to make it work as for now. If Carbonite uses API functions which appeared in API 2.0+ and are not present in API 1.13 - it cannot be done or will have very limited functionality or broken functionality (for example I wonder if Carbonite's map functionality can be done on Classic API) :confused:

jeffy162 08-27-19 01:57 PM

There have been major changes to the API since version 2.4.3 was released. I don't think that the maps will even work. I believe that the classic games' code is a highly modified version of lives 8.1.5, and Carbonite 2.4.3 wouldn't even work in that environment.

Of course, this is all my opinion and I could be wrong (although, I wouldn't bet on it :o ).

Ebmor 08-28-19 12:02 AM

MAYBE there will be something available (based on heavily modified CarboniteGPL_5041 code) after the weekend by mid-September (delayed due to excellent wheater conditions).

Pukkot 08-28-19 08:45 AM

Would be awesome
 
As an old subscriber this was the main addons i used.
As i am now going back to Classic and tried several other addons and they al stink.
I would without a doubt subscribe again if thats an option that would help you
Patch carbonite to wow-Classic.
