"name" is the unique name of the note, e.g. "moss-covered chest 1". A second Note with the same name will overwrite the first one.
"icon" is a number between 1 and 28 (search the NxNote.lua code for self.NoteIcons) - we can probably either add more icons or allow to introduce your own textures rather easily, by adding "or index" to line 157.
"id" is the mapid of the zone your note should be displayed to; a look at Carbonite/Data/Zones.lua may be helpful in finding the correct id.
"x" and "y" are rather self-explanatory.
thanks for this information. unfortunately I am not competent even to follow these directions ! I need some additional guidance if you can. here is what I have tried:
* I added a test note and then tried to find where it was written in the files under C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Carbonite.Notes - and could not find manually looking through code using notepad.exe (also hoping that the file modified date would help)
* similarly i looked elsewhere under the \world of warcraft folder - and still could not find it
* copied the sample files from the \API sample folder to see if they could be imported and viewed in game.
SO i really don't know what i'm doing obviously. Any additional help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
