Patch 4.1 Odds and Ends

Postby Dianora » Wed Apr 27, 2011 9:54 am

First off, I spend about a hour downloading and manually editing mods so I can actually walk around when the combat log is triggered. MBST (which is not being maintained is my biggest headache). A couple of things I do like with this patch:

1. Companion pet is now persistent until cancelled. Hell, even ground version is surprisingly insistent on keeping up with you.

2. Righteous Fury is now persistent until cancelled. I don't know how many boss I tank without it, even with mods reminding me. Now that I don't even use Pally Power, this is even more of a blessing.

3. DirecctX 11 support. Although this is a hit or miss proposition. For me, I get it mainly to up my framerate. However, I do notice strange coloration when use in conjunction with frame resizing mod like ViewPorter. It's an annoyance I can live with.

4. What happened to the option of allowing you to put in user name, password and the authenticator code on the same screen? With 4.1, I cannot seem to do this.

There's a fan update of MSBT on wowinterface, as I suck at LUA I'm using that.

DX11 support has been in since 4.0 - you just had to SET gxApi("d3d11") (or something similar, I don't remember exactly)

Blizzard is aware of the authenticator window issue, and plans to fix it "soon".

Hunters can rejoice that pets auto-level, and tanks can rejoice that hunter autoshot bug is fixed.

Graphics backebd on the Mac client got some love. 70+ fps out in world on my low end iMac.

Alliance wintersaber mount quest was made a daily system and the rep faction remained. Getting 1800 rep per quest turn in.

MSBT is able to be fixed with 3 edits of LUA files.


In MSBTParser.Lua, line 344:
change:
local function ParseLogMessage(timestamp, event, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)

to:
local function ParseLogMessage(timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)

and

MSBTCooldowns.lua, line 246. From:

function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, event, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, skillID)

To:

function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, eventtype, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, ...)

MSBTTriggers.lua, line 689. From:

local function HandleCombatLogTriggers(timestamp, event, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)

To:

local function HandleCombatLogTriggers(timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)

Normalizes it to the horde raptor quest and turns it from a one day grind to a 20 quest affair.

I get the "making it equal" bit, I just wish they hadn't made the horde one so easy.

So what the heck is the point in the feat of strength now? I did 20 quests and got a mount? Wowie.

my hunter alt also love the fact that if your current target dies in mid attack, you DO NOT automatically acquired another target. I can't tell you how many time my hunter (and other in groups) accidentally put another pack of trash.

This implies the old version was hard. Regrinds aren't really hard, just time consuming.

On the plus side one of the quests is adorable.

They changed the quests? (I hadn't looked into it at all.)

I don't know, I was pretty awed by people that had the Wintersabers back when the quest was just a daily. I don't tend to look at grinding as "grinds" though, I look at it more like dedication.

The quest was never just a daily. It was repeatable and could be done in one ling boring go and the rep per quest has been increased twice.

It was a daily quest in Vanilla. Let me go find you the evidence.
