Friends list improvements: notes, remembering the information of offline friends, friend list syncing and backups, and a fubar plugin for it all

    Short of a rewrite it can't really be updated for 4.2. It uses tons of outdated libraries. I think most people cared about the FuBar plugin which can be replaced with SocialState (using Broker instead of FuBar).

    Notes are built into the game now...

    If you want sync look for Tekkub's FriendsWithBenefits.

    There's some comments on the wowace side that can help you get things working sorta. But making it really work at this point in my opinion is just not worth it.

    This addon has never worked for me since Cataclysm. I don't have FuBar and neither did I before, when it was working without any problems. I find it among the most essential addons in the game; it actually helps me run my guild smoothly - or I should say it used to.

    If anyone, including you, Skipper70, creates a Fan Update of this addon, I am sure a lot of (silent but eager for an update) members of the WoW community will be in your debt.

    Hi all,

    does anyone know, if a new release is planed?

    Since release of patch 4,2, I run in 2 troubles:

    1. 1: if a friend in entries is online, AuldlangSyne brakes down (use mouse-over at minimap button cuases LUA-errors and the list does not open at all). This error does not happen, if friends are complete offline.
    2. 2: I cant' edit notes to friend list (in WOW friendlist and in AuldLangSyne-LIst as well). This also causes LUA errors.

    If an update is not planed: any possibility for myself to fix this "unconveniences" ?

    For anyone still using this with FuBar (as I do, I love it), 4.2 broke it. A small change fixes it, however. They changed BNGetToonInfo() to have a new return value after realmName: realmID.

    Change Line 778 in AuldLangSyne_Fu/Fu.lua:

    -                                         hasFocus, _, _, realmName, faction, race, class, guild, zoneName, level = unpack(toonInfo, 1, 10)
    +                                         hasFocus, _, _, realmName, _, faction, race, class, guild, zoneName, level = unpack(toonInfo, 1, 10)

    All better!

    Takika, if both notes exist, then you can simply merge the two together with a delimiter, like a triple-slash "/".

    Also, are there length limits in AuldLangSyne notes and blizzard notes? Will it be possible to always save ALS notes in the blizzard notes, so that even if the addon gets abandoned again, the notes will still be around?

    Blizzard added a 'Set Note' feature to the friendlist (not just WoW but friends too). What to do if a Blizzard-style note exists to a friend?

    Is this working again, did someone take it over?

    Great Takika! Now its working when your character is guilded :)

    Now on to further fixes (hopefully), like edit notes etc.

    Thanks again for making it work :)
