Minion and WoW Classic

I have no faith in Twitch being able to cope with the separation of _retail_ and _classic_ addons so I'm looking at switching to Minion to manage my updates.

It doesn't appear that Minion currently has support for both _retail_ and _classic_ so I'm asking if there are plans to do so and if a time frame has been established?

Minion can support anything you want it just doesn't auto detect _classic_ at the moment.

Press the big [+] sign and navigate to your classic addon folder and add it. Then right click the new World of Warcraft game it just added to the list on the left and rename it to WoW Classic or anything you like.

Then when installing AddOns under the Find tab just make sure to choose the classic category

I had had really mixed results with Minion and WoW Classic thus far.. I have tried both the 64-bit and 32-bit and am still having issues..

If I download an addon from Minion, it shows up within my Installed addons for that session, once I close Minion and open it again, Minion stops detecting that you have it installed. For instance, I have DBM Classic installed, if I look for it in Find More, it is marked as Installed. However, in my Installed, all I see are two addons and a bunch of others are missing.

Its like something is missing from the folders of addons that Minion is looking for but can't find?

I'm also having issues... the path is correct in Minion however the addon window is blank and when I click on Find More it's also blank. When I switch to ESO, it works perfectly fine. Here are some screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/tCIG3cc

Yeah i've had the same for longer than a month :/ I would love to use Minion to backup things & DL. Those few cosmetic addons that won't speed up my char's progression. So no task markers on map or prof. related nodes showing up & so on. Hope Minion client be fixed soon <3

would be better, for us, if the version had classic so we could sort by the category.

What do you mean? What version? Are you talking about the version of Minion? Because it works just as Dolby described. If you mean the version numbers of addons, that is totally up to each individual addon author.

I might be misunderstanding, but I believe he means categories like bags & inventory, or character advancement.

If so, my understanding was that we would have a single Classic category first with it splitting up as the need arises.
