Morning ladies and lurklemen. It's 21 degrees in Oklahoma this morning. You all staying warm, wherever you are?

UI stuff. How's it gone this week? Anything new broken? Anything new fixed? Any finds that just rocked your world?

I'm pleased that they put the mouseover "you have this many of this type of pet" in the pet battle system. I wish that existed "in the wild" so I'd know before entering the battle system whether I needed to check if I had a low quality to release.

Anyway - UI stuff. new finds? aggravations? wish lists? new builds? what's up this week?

Have you checked out BattlePetCount? That lists the level and quality of any pets of that species you already have in any pet tooltip, including mousing over a wild pet or its minimap icon.

Yep, this addon is amazing. :D

What I've not been able to find is an addon that actually reports the Breed ID of your minipet. The addons that report Breed ID, basically goes to a table and gives you the male and female IDs that fit the stats you have or tells you which category the points are put into. Which doesn't help since I want the actual Breed ID to tell the gender of my pets. Because gosh darn it, I want Autumn to be a girl not a boy.

PetJournal Enhanced does this, but it's disabled by default. Enable it in the options and you're good to go.

we have a high in the mid 60s today in Boston! Which is... very weird, for December!

I am having an issue that I'm hoping someone else out there can help with -

I use LUI, and recently (as in, Saturday), I have started having what LOOKS to be the default ui stance bar pop up. Given the layout of my ui, it is appearing in the middle of one of my chat windows (so it's in the default location). It seems to be related to Bartender- if I disable bartender, it goes away (and a /reload fixes it temporarily).

HOWEVER. If I disable bartender and use LUI's default bars, I can't keybind the second row of bars. Period. I can enter the keybinds til I'm blue in the face, but nothing happens when I press the key combinations.

Also disappointed to report that I thought I had found a workaround for random things calling the compact raid frame (someone on MMO champ basically gave a script for fixing it, and a walkthrough on making that script into an addon), but I noticed Tongues is now calling on the CRF again.

Frustration, thy name is genet. >.

Open the primary LUA file for the addon that's calling CRFs, and add a line at the top that says "local _" without quotes. In your example, it'll probably be Tongues.lua - just hit enter a few times to give yourself empty space at the top, then type in "local _" with no quotes, save it, and restart WoW.

It's not a perfect fix - I have one addon that messes up my vehicle bar if I gain a vehicle in combat because of CRF weirdness, so I have to disable it to do Malygos - but it's a really quick fix that takes care of a huge number of errors. I'd rather be able to use my addons and deal with one error per hour (or so) than have to disable them, so it's a good trade in my opinion. :)

It's apparently 13° in MN today, and over the weekend it snowed about 15-18". I have no ui comments, just how proud of myself I am that I had the presence of mind to brush my car off twice yesterday so I didn't have to do all of it this morning.

My urge to go sledding is rising though...

oh my goodness! good for you for brushing your car off yesterday! I don't know that I'd have thought farther than cocoa and toast. ;)

i was wondering if anyone had seen/heard of an addon like fontifier? it's a nice addon that changes the default text to whatever you want. i like sans serif fonts so this was great. sadly, the stopped updating it after 4.0.3 or something.

thanks in advance!

Does it need to be an addon? You can change the default fonts in the game quite easily by renaming some files.

Create the following folder:
<*WoW directory>\Fonts\
Create copies of the font file of your choice, place them in the above folder, and rename them to the following names:
FRIZQT__.ttf (the main UI font - NPC names, player names, spell names, item names, buffs, quest log text, combat text, button text)
ARIALN.ttf (chat font, info text, small text)
skurri.ttf (default unit frame combat text)
MORPHEUS.ttf (mail text, quest log header text)
FRIENDS.ttf (friends list text)

No UI comments from me (although I'd really like Skada to stop conflicting with raid frames so I can change out glyphs without getting yelled at), but here in NC, in the Triangle, it's a balmy 63.8 degrees. High today is supposed to be in the 70s. It'll cool off again later in the week, but only down into the 40s and 50s.

dang. That's what we had a couple weeks ago, and while it was odd for the holiday season you didn't see me complaining one bit! =) This is, admittedly, more normal December weather. The switch from one to the other just kills me, though.

OMFG Formatting issues. Hold on.

I give up.

It's 21 degrees in Oklahoma this morning

I want to go back to a couple weeks ago, when it was 65+ in OKC. Can we do that, please? Pretty please? In the name of Christmas?

Whining about the weather aside (I really don't wanna go do my laundry cause that means I have to go outside), I've got...issues with my addons. Conflict arising from Prat when I've got WIM running. Looks like this, only I've swapped out the <s with {s.: Message: Interface\FrameXML\FloatingChatFrame.lua:972: bad argument #1 to 'strsub' (string expected, got nil) Time: 12/05/12 15:29:20 Count: 1 Stack: [C]: ?

I was getting pissy looking at zone lists and then WoWhead maps to find the pets I need to catch in each zone until I ran across PetTracker. Now it's in-game!

Does anyone else have any other neat pet addons? I'm already using PetJournal Enhanced and didn't like WoWkemon much (even though I love pokemon... it didn't let me use my 1-2-3 keys for battle, lol).

Pet tracker is awesome! if you right click at top of objectives you can even set it to show the quality you have of the pets in each zone!

I use PetJournal Enhanced and PetTracker as well.

Edit: and today PetTracker has also added ability to set way points with Tomtom. :)

I'm from Oklahoma, too! XD When I sat on the porch while my sister smoked I had to sit on a pillow so my bottom didn't get chilled.

... yeah, that's all I got.

oh, I hear ya! As allergic to shoes as I am I don't think I'm checking the mail barefoot today!

anyone know a good addon to be able to copy text from chat?

I would imagine a chat addon like Prat or Chatter would have that functionality built into it.

When I mouseover a given wild pet, prior to a pet battle, it tells me how many I have of that kind already! I just have to pay attention. This is the default UI. O:>

Oh, nevermind, you mean it already has that functionality? Weird, I only see it in-battle.
