RareTracker  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.03v05.R
by: adelea [More]
RareTracker is my take on a rare-mob hunting addon.

If you are in a zone with Rare mobs, then RareTracker will display 2 things.

1. A window listing rare mobs, distance to their spawn point and an arrow showing COMPASS direction

This window can be moved by dragging the title bar around whilst holding the left mouse button.

Clicking with the left mouse button on the darker green MODE: line, will toggle between Available and ALL modes.

Left clicking on any of the elements (arrow/name/range) will toggle the inclusion of that named mob from the
list. This can be used (along with Available mode) to only show the ones you are still interested in finding.

Right clicking on any of these elements will toggle the coloration of the entry. Useful for marking you've visted that location.

In ALL mode, the excluded ones are shown, but their name is coloured Red - they can be clicked to toggle
inclusion status as normal.

If you RIGHT click the MODE: line, it will show a red bar with 2 labels - NAME: and RANGE: - moving the mousewheel
up/down over these labels will cause the textsize used in the tracker to change.

2. A small round minimap icon. If this is in black/white it can be dragged around by holding leftmouse button. Right clicking will change it into a color icon. Left clicking the coloured icon will switch between green/red states. In red state, all other UI elements are disabled and hidden.

3. An icon showing a white diamond on a red, green or gray background.

If it is black/white it can be moved by dragging it around, whilst holding the left mouse button.

Right clicking will toggle between locked (red/green) and movable states (gray)

It can be resized by using the mousewheel up/down whilst hovering over it.

The icon will have a green background if there is a macro associated with it, or red if there is not.

A macro is built and added to the icon for all rare mobs that appear in the tracker and are within 300m of your current location.

The icon can be left-clicked to activate the macro that is associated with it.

There are a few /raretracker commands that can be used:

/raretracker background - toggles display of gray background
/raretracker text - toggles text glow effect
/raretracker reset - to reset locations of buttons/windows.
2.03v05.R:
+ Fix an error that v04 introduced! Oops.

2.03v04.R:
+ Fixed error when trying to unlock/move the macro button

+ Moved Lung Feeder into chronicle
+ Only show number indicators if there is actually more than 1 location
+ Hide button when in a zone where nothing is being tracked

2.03r1:
+ Added Dendrome
+ Added some Russian translations
+ Added more possible spawn locations for several rares

2.02r8:
+ Updated for the 2.3 macro change

2.02r7:
+ Added suppressmacrofailures to macro (not that it does anything, but Trion may fix it one day!)
+ Updates for spawns (DL/Strange Mound [Enraged Scarab]; IPP/Swirling Tempest; MH/Nytami; EH/Plaguefang)

2.02r6:
+ Switched to using /targetexact instead of /target
+ Finished up converting to the new Event system

2.02r5:
+ Updated some locations, and added more alternates
+ You should be able to left-click on the tracker to hide/unhide entries once more

2.02r4:
+ Fixes to libZoneChange
- Fix for player changing zones by walking
- Fix for logging in or /reloadui into a 'special' zone

2.02r3:

2.02r2:

2.02r1:

Reduced CPU load

2.01r2:
+ Added French + German translations of mob names
+ RIGHT CLICK on tracker entry will color/uncolor the entry until you change zone
(useful for marking youve been to that location)

Toggle not working?

I just got the latest version. Very nice Add-on!.

There is one problem, however:

2. A small round minimap icon.
- Right clicking will change it into a color icon. - OK
Right clicking a color icon again should switch it back to greyscale (movable). - Not OK
It doesn't. It hangs the whole addon instead.

I've tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. Sadly I'll have to use another tracker. I'll keep an eye for a new version.
Were the icons gray or colored when you tried moving them ?

I have made some changes to the addon, but the description page does reflect these changes:

2. A small round minimap icon. If this is in black/white it can be dragged around by holding leftmouse button. Right clicking will change it into a color icon. Left clicking the coloured icon will switch between green/red states. In red state, all other UI elements are disabled and hidden.

3. An icon showing a white diamond on a red, green or gray background.

If it is black/white it can be moved by dragging it around, whilst holding the left mouse button.

Right clicking will toggle between locked (red/green) and movable states (gray)

Thanks, Slim!
Its the library that tracks version numbers - it does its check before I register a version.

Should only happen the once... Ive raised the issue w/ the library's creator.

Been running around on PTS, got this when zoning into Ashora on the latest PTS build.

(I know it's not an immediate problem since whatever is causing this is on PTS only, but wanted to give you a heads-up since this will probably be an issue once 2.3 goes live)

Code:
Error: Incorrect function usage.
  Parameters: (Texture: RareTracker.RT.UI.button.0x27485658), (userdata: ), "suppressmacrofailures
targetexact Ranger Fahrand", "Event.UI.Input.Mouse.Left.Click"
  Parameter types: Texture, eventFrame, string, string
Function documentation:
	Attaches an event handler to an event.
	Not permitted on a frame with "restricted" SecureMode while the addon environment is secured.
		Layout:EventAttach(handle, callback, label)   -- eventFrame, function, string
		Layout:EventAttach(handle, callback, label, priority)   -- eventFrame, function, string, number
Parameters:
		callback:	A global event handler function. This will be called when the event fires. The first parameter will be the standard frame event handle, any other parameters will follow that.
		handle:	A handle to a frame event, usually pulled out of the "Event.UI." hierarchy.
		label:	Human-readable label used to identify the handler in error reports, performance reports, and for later detaching.
		priority:	Priority of the event handler. Higher numbers trigger first.
    In RareTracker / Event.System.Update.Begin, event Event.System.Update.Begin
stack traceback:
	[C]: ?
	[C]: in function 'EventAttach'
	RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:492: in function 'SetMacro'
	RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:551: in function <RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:506>

Yes, targetexact will definately solve this issue.

EDIT: I can remove the mobs from the available list w/o any problem.

Not sure what we can do about this - thats juse the way the rift /target macros work.

Can maybe try with /targetexact instead.. Will have a play around.

Thanks again for all your hard work.
That should be fixed in 2.02r5 - you are still seeing it ?

EDIT: just noticed date of original message - not sure how I missed it before!
