    I...I think I might have walked into the wrong forum thread...

    It's not what it looks like... It's complicated.

    I open the launcher from the system tray. Besides, sometimes overcomplicating things can be fun, Phanx!

    I would like to point out that no console windows pop up for me though. Batch files don't show console windows when Task Manager runs them.

    If the task is set to run as the current user, console windows definitely aren't hidden without using workarounds. However, you can also change the user running the task to SYSTEM, and nothing will appear on your screen.

    As for Wowhead and WoWDB, this means that no delay is required and I can run this and my other scripts as soon as WoW exits?

    Actually, I just checked to confirm and you're right, they do upload some information from the Cache.

    1. This step is definitely not needed.
    3a. Use the following instead. It only deletes the necessary file for each region and as long as the batch file is saved in WoW's root directory, there is no need to edit it.
    %~d0
    CD %~dp0
    FOR /F "delims=\" %%G IN ("%~dp0") DO %%G
    FOR /F "tokens=*" %%G IN ("DIR /B /AD .\Cache\WDB") DO DEL /Q /F .\Cache\WDB\%%G\creaturecache.wdb

    4. Press Win+R, type "secpol.msc", and hit Enter.
    5. Press Win+R, type "taskschd.msc", and hit Enter.
    5f. Use the following instead:
    <QueryList>
      <Query Id="0" Path="Security">
        <Select Path="Security">*[System[(EventID=4689)]] and *[EventData[Data[@Name="ProcessName"]="[COLOR="Red"]C:\Program Files\[/COLOR]World of Warcraft\Wow.exe" or Data[@Name="ProcessName"]="[COLOR="red"]C:\Program Files\[/COLOR]World of Warcraft\Wow-64.exe"]]</Select>
      </Query>
    </QueryList>


    • _NPCScan and the like will no longer work with Warlords of Draenor, so this won't be useful in the near future.
    • This works on Windows Vista/7/8.
    • It's possible to hide the console window from showing with hidcon and other such utilities. You can also accomplish this by just changing the user running the task to SYSTEM.

    posted a message on AceDB and default profiles (Picking a bone)
    Quote from Nevcairiel
    ...its still quite unreasonable, just to make a change a few people think is better. Like I said in this thread before, AceDB-2.0 had the default like you would prefer, and instead people asked back then for it to be changed. There is never a consensus, so we're just going to stick with what we have.


    Many more than a few... If anything, I believe we're more numerous than those who wanted AceDB-2.0's default profile behavior changed.

    posted a message on Weak Auras 2 does not work
    Does anyone know why the addon was forked in the first place? Both projects appear to have the same authors. Wouldn't it have been easier to avoid all this confusion by just continuing the original? :confused:

    I hope I didn't miss the payout. Is it usually done once a month?

    The holidays are hard on the wallet. ;)

    If the broadcast message oQueue sets is left on after the user disables the addon, they'll be spammed with encoded messages upon reentering the game world.
