FAQ:

General:

Q: Why aren't my entries showing up after Update?
A: Open VanasKoS-Configuration, goto "Import Data" and select "Old VanasKoS"

Q: How can I backup my KoS-Data & Settings
A: Copy the file WoW\WTF\Account\*YourAccountName*\SavedVariables\VanasKoS.lua to a safe place of your choosing.

Q: I found a LUA-Error/Bug, What shall I do?
A: Goto http://www.wowace.com/addons/vanas-kos/tickets/ and describe what you did to cause the problem (or when it happened) and post the lua-error-message. As we may have additional questions, please check back in/have a valid email at curse for ticket updates.

Q: I have a great idea for the addon! Want to hear it?
A: Goto http://www.wowace.com/addons/vanas-kos/tickets/ and post your idea.

Q: I like living on the edge. Where can I get the latest alpha version?
A: Use these versions at your own peril: http://www.wowace.com/addons/vanas-kos/files/

Synchronization

Q: Why aren't my guild members entries displaying?
A: There are few possibilities here. Make sure that you do not have "Show only my entries" checked. You must have your synchronization settings set up to allow entries to be accepted. This works kind of like a firewall. There are 4 policies, "Accept All", "Accept" all except those on the blacklist, "Deny" all except those on the white list, and "Deny All". Your guild members must also enable sharing of their lists with the guild.

Notification:

Q: How can I add some additional mp3 sound files for notifications?
A: You can either send them to me with a license disclaimer that allows the distribution/packaging with vanaskos (if you own the rights) or You can add your own sounds by modifying WoW/Interface/AddOns/VanasKoS/modules/Notifier.lua The list of sounds is at the top of that file. Just put your extra sound files somewhere inside the WoW directory. VanasKoS uses LibSharedMedia-3.0 so it also has access to any other addon's sounds."

Distributed Tracking:

Q: How does the Distributed Tracking works?
A: Fine, Thanks!

Q: I see weird messages in my Chat Window on the Channel CrbZ????, What's up with that?
A: It's not normally supposed to be visible. But you can disable the displaying of that channel in the settings for the chat window. Just uncheck it there.

Q: My channel-numbers are all screwed up
A: It seems that your computer is too slow. VanasKoS joins the Distributed Tracking Channels 20 seconds after login/changing the Zone. You can modify this value manually in WoW\Interface\AddOns\VanasKoS\modules\DistributedTracker.lua under "JOIN_DELAY".

Help the Addon/Authors:

Q: How can I help with localization?
A: Goto http://www.wowace.com/addons/vanas-kos/localization/ and get started!

Q: How can I support the authors and development of this addon?
A: You can either use the "Donate"-Button on the curse VanasKoS-Page, or get a curse-premium Account. Curse gives a part of their earnings through the premium-program back to the addon-authors.

Q: I can code in lua and want to develop xyz?
A: Write me a PM with your idea and experience - I'll review the idea and if it's finished include it in vanaskos, or if you want to develop more add you as a co-author.

Other:


Q: How much do you make with this addon?
A: Near to nothing - My (Vanas) payment/hour for VanasKoS is less than 10cents, don't worry though - it's a hobby for the authors, so the revenue isn't a factor for development, but it also means that the real-life job is more important, so bear with us when answers/development take a little longer.

Q: Vana...Vana.. I seem to remember this name from Lineage2
A: You are right, I worked on a popular (and the first) lineage2 drop-database back then.

Q: License?
A: VanasKoS is mostly licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License. Note: Soundfiles/Graphics/Libraries used may be licensed differently.

    For some reason the fubar plugin doesn't seem to work anymore with the latest updates, any chance on this being fixed?
