SignOn has had a long overdue update this morning, bringing it back up to date and fixing a serious bug caused by the arrival of Patch 5.4.7.
SignOn uses “hyperlinks” embedded in the logon/logoff messages to obtain a player’s name, which is then used to obtain additional character data such as class, level and notes. Patch 5.4.7 changed the way these hyperlinks are constructed and this caused SignOn to be rendered useless. Thankfully there were no Lua error messages caused by the changes, so SignOn could remain installed and enabled without causing any harm to anything.
Today’s update to HandyNotes for Lunar Festival is a fairly minor one which adds some quality-of-life changes to make finding the Elders even easier than before.
As of Version 1.1.5, the addon now displays the locations of Elders inside dungeon instances on the zone and continent maps. The marker pins are placed either at the dungeon entrance itself (for example, Zul’Farrak and Gundrak) or at the entrance of the cave where the dungeon entrance is located inside (for example, Sunken Temple and Maraudon).
The new version of HandyNotes for Lunar Festival is available to download from Curse and requires HandyNotes to work.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback please do not hesitate to get in touch!
Official Changelog: v1.1.4 to v1.1.5
Marker pins for Elder NPCs inside dungeons now appear on the zone and continent maps.
The Lunar Festival will be starting again soon and a new version of HandyNotes for Lunar Festival was released this morning in preparation for the upcoming event.
The biggest change in this version is that the marker pins for the Lunar Festival Elder NPCs now appear on the world map at continent level, similar to how the bonfires are displayed in HandyNotes for Midsummer Festival. The pins will disappear from the world map as you visit each Elder, so you no longer need to click on each individual zone to find any Elders you may have missed.
There are currently no options to turn this new feature off, but if the community requests it I will look into making one.
The new version of HandyNotes for Lunar Festival is available to download from Curse and requires HandyNotes to work. Please note that the map pins will only appear while the Lunar Festival is active!
The 2014 Lunar Festival will start on January 20th and will end on February 2nd. Good luck!
