    Wow!, tyvm Lilsparky for fixing this up for us really appreciate it being as I only posted my comment yesterday! Thanks again and keep up the great work!

    yeah, it's unfortunate that both branches have had the same number of commits since the split. they're both at rev167 now.

    if you get a libpossession error, you're not using my clone. that's only from the trunk version. also, if you don't have the tradeskills on the top right, that's also a good indicator that you're using the trunk version.

    Using lilsparkys clone r167 i am still getting an error:

    [23:43:48] LibPossessions-164: Unable to obtain items counts for 34052 using ArkInventory: Interface\AddOns\Skillet\LibPossessions.lua:303: attempt to index field 'realm' (a nil value). Will no longer use that addon [23:43:48] LilSparky's Workshop r96

    Though i just ignore it and seems to work fine.

    Mmm i'm not sure which skillet version i'm using now as they are both with the same version number (its r166 i think of orginal), ill try both versions out. I have taken a look at gnomerworks but still waiting for the bugs to be ironed out.

    Edit: i think i was using your one as the layout is the same, strange that the changelog for r166 had notes from author: StingerSoft (which appears to be the original one from yet i downloaded a r167 earlier and the layout and text colour was different, so im slightly confused.

    weird. all i did was change the .toc

    honestly, you should probably use the clone branch which is actually a bit more up-to-date. there's a link to it in the description above.

    fwiw, you might also look at gnomeworks which is still in alpha, but coming along nicely. it will replace skillet.

    While the update looks good, it doesn't function correctly. a) the enhancing/jc window sometimes requires double presses to open (is a macro on my toolbar) b) when loading ktq queue, the queue in skillet will be empty unless a item in the trade window is selected which refreshes the bottom right box. c) the shopping list isn't working d) the colour of each skill is no longer seen on the text of the skill itself?

    I will revert back to the previous version for now as it is mostly still working.

    k, i updated the .toc and hopefully that will repackage with the latest ace2 libs.

    First Great Add-on! Best prof UI in game! Just need an update or a work around that will enable functionality! Getting Ace2 errors like the person that posted a ticket here on 7-3-10. Could someone help me out plz! I really miss this add-on more so than any other that doesn't work post 3.3.5! TY for your time and consideration!

    I'm getting lots of issues post-3.3.5. They seem to be fixed locally by updating the embedded ace2 library (and a couple of others). Would you accept a patch to do the same in svn?
