SSS WoWInterface's First Official Addon

Happy April Fool's everyone. Yes, the addon was indeed our joke for this year. Hope people got a kick out of it.


We are very pleased and proud to announce our first official addon: SSS. Our very own Seerah, Shadowed and Shirik have all collaborated to create an addon that is designed to improve the efficiency of all addons by replacing several core functions of Lua with more efficient versions which are optimized specifically for WoW development. In simple terms, this should drastically and dramatically improve WoW's performance for you.



You can find it in our new download category, Official WoWInterface Addons and Utilities. Please see the download page for further details and to download it. Zoom zoom!

It is all pure Lua, there is nothing in it that will get you banned.

Tekkub is just jealous he didn't figure it out first. Sorry man but Shirik, Seerah & Shadowed are a dream team.

Hey guys, this is pretty funny, I tried to use the MMOUI Minion v2.3.1 to download this mod, and it occurs to me that the downloader program will not search anything below 4 characters.

You can't use their own program to download their mod.

Sweet mod though,

Yeah, and I'm afraid it will take Blizz only a day to disable that functionality

As mentioned on the download page, there are a couple of minor taint errors that are being worked out. Simply hit the "Ignore" button when it appears (which is only when you press Escape.) The game still functions as normally, and Escape still works to pull up menu, clear target, etc.

could you possibly explain why the fps reported ingame with this add on does not line up with the fps reported by other programs such as evga and fraps?
