MiniPet

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

Update: A kind user named Rosdav fixed the "green button" bug for everyone and I've updated with it :)

Sorry all, MiniPet is currently dead. I've lost interest in WoW and related programming. I still hope to return soon to fix up the problems, but you're probably better off using one of the newer, shiner addons now :(

WoW 5.x notes

Because of the change to battle pets, your favorites will likely be reset!

Beta notes

Sorry that the description is so out of date, I hope to have it updated soon.

The latest version adds support for uploading a single character's pet collection to WarcraftPets.com. To access it, go to the addon settings, select the Companions group and click the button "Get WarcraftPets.com code". The code you need to upload will be put into your chat edit box. You can also get to it from the chat command "/ccn options Companions wcpCode"

Synopsis

There are a number of events that trigger the loss of your companion. This addon reminds you to summon a new one, either by displaying a text warning and/or flashing the MiniPet button. You can drag and position the MiniPet button wherever it's most convenient for your UI.

MiniPet supports [http://www.wowace.com/projects/buttonfacade/ ButtonFacade], use /bf to configure the skin and color settings for the button if you have it installed.

MiniPet supports [http://www.wowace.com/projects/libkeybound-1-0/ LibKeyBound], use /kb to enter key binding mode.

MiniPet's button will stick to other frames that support [http://www.wowace.com/projects/libstickyframes-2-0/ LibStickyFrames].

MiniPet outputs the current item it will use using LibDataBroker-1.1. Note that clicking on the item in a Broker addon will not activate the item. You must have MiniPet bound to a key to use it in a Broker addon and hide its own button.

Known Issues

  • Alerts do not work when entering non-instanced portals, such as the portal in the Stormwind mage tower.
  • Changes to the randomizer means that it will sometimes pick the same companion many times in a row. This is intentional.

    That's sad... :(
    I really loved your addon.
    Any suggestions for the 'shiner' addons?

    Smile! You are on the internet!

    Thanks for the report, but please refrain from using the alpha builds. These will often have code that hasn't been ran at all and are for internal tester use. Please wait for betas, as these are more for public use.
