A new version of Broker oQueue was released this afternoon, hot on the heels of Patch 5.4.2 for World of Warcraft.
I was recently asked how to hide oQueue’s minimap button as the option to do so is rather obscure. There are no checkboxes anywhere in oQueue’s configuration screen and up until now the only way to hide the button was to use a hidden slash command: /oq mini
Broker oQueue has been updated to fix a small graphical error.
As of Version 1.1, the dropdown menu is now “clamped” to the screen. This means that if you have placed the broker object near the left side of your screen, the dropdown menu will no longer partially disappear off the edge.
Even though it was released little over a month ago, Broker oQueue has been downloaded almost 18,000 times already. Thank you all for your amazing support!
The update is available for download right now from Curse. As always, if you have any questions or feedback please do not hesitate to get in touch. Enjoy!
A little thing that I discovered recently is the World of Warcraft addon oQueue, which allows users to create “pre-made” groups for Battlegrounds, Arenas, Raids and the like.
I have known of its existence for a long time but only recently installed it after it became available on Curse. I have to say, even though I have not yet created or joined a group using it I am a fan of the idea.
The only problem of course, is that accessing oQueue’s user interface largely depends on its minimap button. I am ok with this, but I’d prefer to have a “broker object” that I can attach to Bazooka and hide it from the screen when I don’t need it.
Thus, Broker oQueue was born.
This is an incredibly light-weight addon (only 30 lines of code!) that does one thing and does it well. Its sole purpose is to emulate oQueue’s minimap button, which allows me to hide the minimap button and keep my World of Warcraft user interface as clean as possible.
I have made Broker oQueue available for public download in the hopes that other users also find it useful. It is available to download right now from Curse.
You will need to install oQueue as well as a “broker display” addon for Broker oQueue to work correctly. I personally use Bazooka, but there are plenty of alternatives available including Chocolate Bar and Titan Panel. Use whichever one you like!

After being left in “alpha” status on Curse since Patch 5.2 came out, Chinchilla Minimap has finally been given a new public release version.
While I haven’t yet been able to finish working on everything that I’d like to, this release includes several important fixes to bugs introduced with Patch 5.4.
There have also been a number of fairly large changes behind the scenes, some of which I felt were needed but may prove controversial.
This includes the deletion of the QuestTracker module. This module was deemed “out of scope” of Chinchilla’s development goals and has been removed, but the options to show/hide the quest tracker’s “Objectives” header text and collapse button proved to be popular features and these have been brought back as options in the Appearance module instead.
You can download the latest version of Chinchilla from either Curse or WoWinterface. As always, if you find any errors or want to provide feedback, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
