Cairenn, I appreciate your input on this matter but fail to understand from what legal ground these authors maintain these intellectual rights. I will research further into United States copyright and contract law to see if I can confirm your statements, because I personally don't care if I am right. I am odd that way I guess. I would much rather collect and provide accurate information than maintain an incorrect opinion.

Anyone reading this: if you happen to be a lawyer or judge or copyright professional I would really like your expertise in this!

I'll answer your question with what I was about to post next anyways... :P


NEW VERSION IS NOW UP!

5.04.03 has been placed on the server, and contains:
- the fixes for LFR/LFD/BG Queues
- a new option in Quests for showing how many dailies you have done (someone requested this be put
back as it was something they used even with unlimited dailies now, so I made it an option instead of
just removing it)
- Hopefully Quest Complete sounds / message, and group chat quest updates are now working reguardless
of which POI system you use. At least it worked in my testing tonight >< Let me know!

Thanks for all the work, can't live without this mod. Shame that the devs are missing a lot of potential "donations" (since they cant charge like they used too, i bought it myself once) :P many people love this addon

If you set your language to english in the client it will work, I know it's not a very good option, but until I have time to figure out the localization and translate the zones it's the only option for it

I agree, but I do have many issues here.
Starting with LUA being open source and available to all, This is where I believe that the WoW and Blizzard folks were going, but lets put that aside.

The creators of this original addon believed that their intellectual usage would one day garner.....something.
The license was extended into 2012.

on the other hand; we have no response from the programmer(s) in question.
There is no guaranty of future updates, and there is no mention of preserving this program in the future or for all time.

Although the agreement is very generic (Copied in fact), it was done so inappropriately and not enforceable......but!

I believe that every available precaution is being taken here.
Rythal has received no notice to discontinue and is posted and made other attempts to contact programmers here, in fact I am surprised that the original programmers have not asked to take him on to the program team.

To be safe: the best solution is to start from scratch.
On the other hand, anything made in LUA is open source as is not bound by any agreement anyways, so these portions can be modified and used as you see fit.
More info on LUA licensing here ( http://www.lua.org/license.html )
At least starting over, you can correct bugs and create a clean code as you go, but yes a demanding and time consuming under taking, I know: I have walked this road before.

I am a bit disturbed, Cairenn, that as an admin, you do not have a form of direct communication to the programers of this addon. This needs to be addressed and immediately so.
I Admin a number of forums, and have a way to directly contact all programmers (Period), please pass this onto the folks that are in charge.
This will help prevent this situation in the future.

As the updates are done, I will continue to use them at this time, I also suggest that work continue on the addon by Rythal until such time that a programmer or proper software representative comes forward and says otherwise, or rather; invites Rythal to complete his work and invites him/her to the programming team.

I have done this Licensing dance too many times in my life, there is never a clear answer, but to keep on keeping on.

Many thanks to you Rythal for your work

How would I go about getting the newest version? You said that 5.04.03 has been placed on the server but how do I get it?

The link is back a few pages in the thread but I'll post it again...

http://virtxchange.com/carbonite/

The zip file contains the Carbonite Lua and Toc files. You have to have the full Carbonite addon in your addons folder then just replace those 2 files in the Carbonite folder with the new ones.

Exclamation Teammate Icons and Health Status missing?

Dear all,

One unique aspect of Carbonite was the fact that it allowed me to not only see where my team/party/raid mates were but if they were being attacked, if they were targeting anything hostile and even how much health they had left. This was invaluable for me because I would find out before people called it out what was going on in any corner of the battleground map.

With Rythal's addon modifications Carbonite seems to be working again -- but I just can't find that functionality in the minimap anymore. I don't see any of the circular, blue teammate icons, let alone any health information on them.

Can anybody help?

Rythal, just wanted to let you know that I'm really grateful for the work you've done on this. Thank you so much.

Well, I've put the file up which I downloaded at

http://wikisend.com/download/372122/...-mop-50403.zip

The MD5sum hash for the file is 74624d105037f0fb775372773e005213 . Perhaps someone else who has downloaded the file from Rythal's original link can verify this *shrug*

Rythal, I respect your wishes in this matter. If you want me to take the file down, do let me know.

I've updated the localization file. It should be attached to this post.

Well at least i've updated the german, french and spanish localizations since i can't seem to launch the game in russian. The new zones have been added to the russian localization but someone who can launche the game in russian will have to fill in the missing strings.

As for an italian localization you'd have to do it from scratch since the italian translation of wow is a new one and there is currently no localization for it.

Feel free to run a virus check on the zip file but it only contain the localization.lua file since it's to big to be attached to this post.
Attached Files
File Type: zip Localization.zip (44.8 KB, 448 views)

Thanks for the work Rythal, you're awesome.

Yeah, I figured that out when I noticed the changelog on the site. You must have been uploading when I was trying to download. Thanks for putting in the work. I'm too lazy to try and fix addons.

don't know if that method will still work with the changes and all, but it's the best help I can give anyway...

P.S. the lines to be replaced may list different file names as per installed language localization OF THE ADDON

P.P.S. NVM the above line, i misinterpreted the instructions. I'd strikethrough my above text, but can't figure out how to do that here.
