Releasing a modified version of an older "addon"

Hi. At one point I was part of the old AI-Art team and I have been given permission specifically on the classic version for release. I know Quokka comes back every now and then, and I have sent him a message to get added to the curator team again. My question, is can I release an "AI-Art: WoW Classic", if I already have his permission within my own curator page without being added on as a curator to the original project?

The reason I ask, the original works have been abandoned, but I have permission specifically for the 1.12 files. If I have done work to make them work (which I did this weekend, still more to do) as long as I credit and have the permission can I not curate?

The original project is here: https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...48-AI-Art.html

For reference this is what I played last weekend:

If you have his permission to release AI-Art for Classic, then yes.

Given those images are showing the talent trees and addons aren't by default enabled in the Classic demo, I'm not sure what you are using to create your version.

We have been told the the Classic UI API will be based on the current (BfA) systems so whatever work you've done may well not work with Classic live. On the other hand anything created in BfA should work in Classic when it goes live with exception to the changes in the bar/bag possibly some other frame layouts if you're just re-skinning the default UI.

Actually, the UI in the Classic demo is marked as version 70300

Classic uses the talent trees as they existed in Classic. And AI-Art is just graphic overrides.

Its a texture replacement. It also worked pretty flawlessly. Everything is installed directly into interface not addons. Also, the talent trees were very much on. You could use talent points from level 15-19 you just couldn't train or go anywhere other than the barrens or Westfall. The version I am creating, was used in the original release of AI-Art for BC many moons ago. I have gone through since Blizzcon enabled the demo and made sure to fix any issues I could see in that short amount of time. Those pictures are from 1.13, their demo. Its on the title screen shot I put in the album, I had a lot of images from screenshots which is why I showed one preview item, and linked the album:







While we were theorizing about how it worked and will work rofl, Ai-Art worked fine:

(had to edit out video link will do a proper youtube vid in a minute)

I was indeed a bit slow realising it is an art only addon, oops . Good luck.

Naw man it's all good. I can't tell you by the way, how many times I used DUF and DA Art. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have had fun for many many many game play sessions!

Update: Quokka made me a curator again, so in the future there will be a "Ai-Art: WoW Classic" for release!
