Updating world of warcraft addons
If you use "Load Outdated Add Ons", without making any changes to the toc numbers (i.e., the proper way to deal with patch days), then when something stops working, you've got some hope of figuring out which mod(s) aren't working right, since you can go back to the Add On button on the Character Select screen and see which Add Ons aren't updated yet.If, however, you go in and manually change all the toc numbers, so far as Wo W is concerned, they are all "current". When all of a sudden you've got error messages popping up all over the place? Trimble: UI Add Ons fall into two categories: Macros - these aren't really Add Ons at all, but they can use LUA code to do neat things in game.They run separate from the game similar to how ICQ or MSN Messenger runs in the background.The difference is that 3rd party hacks try to read, or change data coming into or out of the WOW game client(to the network card), or they try to read or write to memory space used by the Wow Game client.Check out different Add Ons, find what works for you.- Without additional information it would be near impossible to figure out which Add On you're hoping to find.
Note that Wo W now has a built in scrolling combat text, that has most of the functionality of SCT.
A large number of the ones I've got listed there are suites/compilations, an example listing of stand-alones would be absolutely freaking huge. This is just a very small sample listing to give you an idea of the fact that there are tons out there.
You have to figure out which one gives you the options you want, or mix and match to get what you want.
You only *have* to update Add Ons that are actually broken because of functionality changes made by Blizzard in a patch.
If you aren't getting error messages and everything is still working okay, you can just run using the "Load Outdated Add Ons" check box.
