Cataclysm Addons and X-Compatible-With

Posted by ckknight Sep 07, 2010 at 17:59 UTC

Hey all, ckknight here.

As many of you have discovered, the Cataclysm Beta has opened up third-party (that's us) addon usage.

CurseForge and WowAce has added support for the 4.0 game version, and it's also recommended that in your TOC file, if your addon is compatible with 3.3, to make it look as such:

## Interface: 30300
## X-Compatible-With: 40000

If it is 4.0-only, it would properly look as such:

## Interface: 40000

The packager will pick up on this and properly assign both game versions to the generated file. If uploading (CurseForge only), then you can select more than one game version. I still recommend using the X-Compatible-With paradigm, though.

Cataclysm Beta Keys for Addon Authors

Posted by Kaelten Jul 12, 2010 at 22:41 UTC

As we all know Cataclysm has entered beta. For expansions past we've been able to offer our authors beta access. I'm glad to say that thanks to Blizzard we're able to do the same again this year.

To be considered eligible for this you must have a valid active addon on either http://WoW.CurseForge.com or http://www.WowAce.com. We will be activating a new item on the rewards store (it won't cost any points!) soon that you'll need to go in and order to request a key.

We will then be fulfilling orders as quickly as we can receive keys.

Just so everyone is aware, addons are currently disabled in the latest builds of the beta and will likely remain that way for some time as the default ui gets the kinks worked out. While this will limit the toying with the API it will still let everyone test out the default one, and have fun exploring the new content.

Have fun, happy questing and testing!

Curse Premium has a Birthday

Posted by Kaelten Apr 25, 2010 at 15:06 UTC

About a week ago Curse Premium turned a year old. Our CEO sent out this email to our premium members and I wanted to share it with everyone here as there are some stats in there you may find interesting.

Premium Email

This is a major milestone for us, and I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the last year. I'm also happy to announce that later this month we're going to be celebrating the 2 year anniversary of CurseForge.

Thanks again guys. Here's looking forward to another great year.

Curse.com Server Problems

Posted by Ackis Feb 28, 2010 at 16:09 UTC

There seem to be some server problems with Curse.com.

This will affect Curse.com and it also seems Curse Client downloads.

CurseForge/WowAce do not seem to be affected, so as a developer you can continue to update addons.

For end users, if you wish to download addons you can access them from the project page (http://www.wowace.com/addons/arl/ for example). Click on the files tab and you can download from there.

The people who make things work are aware of the problem, and are working on it.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Update

From Adamar:

Update: The network issue has been resolved, and all services should be working properly again. We apologize for the inconvenience.

A network outage at a core router in New York City is currently preventing many Curse network sites and services from functioning properly, for people in certain parts of the world. We have contacted our data center, and they are looking into the issue now.
