Chinchilla Minimap

Example 1

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Allows changing of blip size, border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Show your location coordinates.
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Show the name of your location more flexibly.
Move Buttons
Move the buttons around the minimap to wherever you want (even off the minimap entirely).
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
Position the minimap and frames around it.
Range Circle
Show on the minimap where your range extends to.
Show / Hide
Show or hide various frames related to the minimap.
Tracking Dots
Change the dots on the map to a different set of images. Very handy, especially if you suffer from colour-blindness
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

    I am still having the issue with chinchilla not displaying the capture bar for Tol Barad.

    Running 2.4.2 and I have moved the capture bar window to under that map.

    Should I get the alpha and see if that helps or is there some missing configuration on my part?

    I'm sorry to announce that I have actually quit WoW. My life is a complete mess right now and I no longer have the money nor the motivation to continue playing. In fact, I haven't played at all since June.

    I am sorry guys.

    When I enable Rotate Minimap the whole map seems to resize itself whenever I'm facing a mid-direction like North-West or South-East. Is this a problem with chinchilla? I haven't had this problem until i switched to a square minimap.

    It got a little more interesting. Sometimes I get BOTH. The boss frame shows up on the boss AND the box with the red titlebar type thing come up as well. (Usually though, it's just the box I described)

    I'm having a problem with the boss health frames. They don't show up, instead I get a semi-transparent black box with a red bar at the top, a little off to the side of where the boss frame is supposed to be located.

    Whoops! Should be fixed in v2.3.2-8. Let me know if it isn't. :)

    I can disable the new textures but I cannot disable the entire feature.
