Carbonite support for Classic?
 
Has any work been done to make Carbonite work with Classic when it is released?

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

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 to many work on Retail version of this addon. So Classic version will not be released.

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.

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.

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.
