AutoBar / Re: Classic Autobar?
« Last post by MuffinManKen on Today at 04:55:51 AM »
Unless something really crazy happens, I will get a usable version of AutoBar for Classic.  I can't promise a date and I can't promise how much support there might be beyond that initial release.

If I'm not even able to cover the costs of my subscription then my motivation to work on these addons will be pretty low.  A lot of the time I put into the addons is time I could be spending on paying work.  I'm not playing WoW (BfA or Classic) much, so the personal motivation is low.  My wife cancelled her subscription, so that's another motivator gone. (She is toying with the idea of trying Classic though because she got started around MoP, I think).

If a fraction of my users donated $10/year, things would be dramatically different, but that's not how the world works.  The Patreon was my attempt to offer people a little motivation to help out.

Now I'm just rambling, but in my defense it's 5am. :)

AutoBar / Re: learn lua to fix favorite addons that don't work?
« Last post by MuffinManKen on Today at 04:45:23 AM »
I'm not sure how to answer that.  I've been programming forever, so my viewpoint is pretty biased.  I can tell you that lua is one of the simpler languages, so it's not a bad place to start.  Ultimately, it depends on how stubborn you are. :) 

Programming can be frustrating at the best of times, and Blizzard doesn't always make things easy.

It likely is more complicated than you might be expecting, but it really feels pretty great when you solve a problem, or add a new feature.

AutoBar / learn lua to fix favorite addons that don't work?

so, how difficult is this? i don't mean anything as complicated as autobar. more like this one:
https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/broker-xpbar

or is that more complicated than i think it might be?

my limit is minor changes that suit me - like commenting out autobar hearthstones for retail.

thanks ;)

there are literally hundreds of addon authors who have a patreon or some other method of collecting "donations" for their addons. its ridiculous.
Agreed. And what's worse is that if they do rule that I'm violating the TOS then that opens all of those other authors to get targeted by disgruntled users and trolls.  This will not help WoW in any way.

Someone reported me to Blizzard claiming that my addons violate their Terms of Service because of my Patreon.  I don't think I am, but hopefully soon I will get something official back from Blizzard.

My plan was to have something ready at or soon after the launch, but with this whole "violating the TOS" nonsense I have no idea what is going to happen.  As soon as I hear back from Blizzard I will let everyone know.

What's that about? What's violating the TOS and how?
Anyway, sounds good I guess!

Heya again Muffin.
I'll be playing on Shazzrah EU and I will definitely help test the addon in Classic and report any bugs that I find.

Will you have any new version of the addon up for the release of Classic or should we continue using the version you posted a few days ago?

Cheers  :)
