StarTip

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.

PVP Tooltip

This project is being retired in favor of its successor, StarTip2. This new addon is still in beta, but it already fixes bugs that existed in StarTip the original. http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/startip2/

- StarTip - Tooltips from OuterSpace

Credits:

Huge appreciation goes out to ckknight for a ton of code. If you know CowTip, StarTip is similar. Props to Shefki for LuaTexts.

And many tributes go out to the many library authors whom have written the numerous libraries StarTip's script environment is built upon.

Customization Tips

StarTip provides an environment for your scripts.. This environment provides WoW API functions such as UnitName, UnitLevel, etc... If it's not available, try _G. Also, much of LuaTexts by Shefki is included, but be aware that modifications have been made and elements either removed or added. Also be aware that how you format your return values is incompatible with Pitbull4's implementation. In StarTip you simple return a string that's already formatted.

There are many plugins available. I imagine if you're willing to write an actual Lua script that you won't mind reading code. Go into the Libs folder and click into LibScriptable-1.0. Note all the LibScriptablePlugin* elements. These are what provide StarTip's script environment with functions and other elements.

Check here for a brief tutorial.

StarTip also has LibDogTag support. Just return the dog tag from your script, and click the check mark labeled "Dog Tag" to enable this feature.

Note: If you know of a library that you want to make available in your own scripts. let me know and I'll see about writing a plugin for it.

Bug Reports and Feature Requests

StarTip will take advantage of BugGrabber if it's installed, and will attempt to disable lines that cause errors. Note that the errors are not suppressed.

Note to Translators: You can easily support this project by translating some phrases at either two locations: StarTip and LibScriptable-1.0.

The comments on Curse.com have been disabled. They're too much of a hassle to keep up with and use to communicate with users. There are numerous other options mentioned in this description for filing bug reports, or for simply seeking general help. Try the Wowace.com forums if you're still not sure where to go.
