Cartographer 3.0

125 - Waypoint arrow missing

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Most of the time when I start wow.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead? I expect to see the waypoint arrow but see what looks to be a three dimensional box with blue and white squares.

What version of the product are you using?
Cartografer 3.0

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
This problem doesn't seem to be present all of the time but I cant tie it to any specific action

    Yup Comment #2860 worked like a charm for me, for those of you who dont know(like me), navigate to "C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Cartographer3_Waypoints" and open waypoints.lua in notepad, then click go to and when it asks you for line number type 363 and adjust as told in comment 2860.

    I copy the 'WaypointArrow.m2' from the Cartographer3/Waypoints-folder to the Cartographer3_Waypoints-folder

    I think that m2-file is missing in this C3_Waypoints-folder

    I am having the same problem. I will test the solution in post #2860, as it appears to make sense considering the file placement. The line was on 359 in my waypoints.lua .

    I changed it from: arrow:SetModel([=[Interface\AddOns\Cartographer3\WaypointArrow.m2]=])

    to: arrow:SetModel([=[Interface\AddOns\Cartographer3\Waypoints\WaypointArrow.m2]=])

    line 363 in Catographer3_Waypoints\Waypoints.lua needs to be changed to this

    Having the same issue. v 0.8.1. For me, I see the arrow for some indeterminate time, and then it becomes a blue and white checkered cube. The cube behaves like the arrow (rotates), but obviously gives no hints as to heading.
