WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) v3

Note from MysticalOS: I am looking for someone who wants to take WIM over. It's become a higher and higher amount of stress to upkeep and has gotten to point where it's too much work to even keep it FUNCTIONAL let alone actually try to improve it any. WIM is not a main project for me and is only something I do in free time here and there. My main focus is other projects that consume most of my time and I do not give WIM the attention it needs to be great again.

WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) is a World of Warcraft addon which brings an instant messenger feel to communication in game.

I created WIM over 2 years ago with the curiosity of creating an addon. Since then, WIM has evolved into what it is today, however so many requests from the community were added into the addon which resulted in bulky and inefficient coding practices that took a toll on both CPU and Memory usage. To resolve this, I decided to rewrite WIM from scratch. Each feature is being reintroduced one at a time and being advanced upon. That being said, I welcome you to WIM 3.0.

    Using 3.6.19 and I noticed no history is being recorded period for any of the windows. It only keeps current logged in information and if you do a reload or exit game then it is deleted.

    I am having a similar issue to the one I posted about back in March. The message history will save the messages from battle tag friends, but not those of any other people who whisper me. The messages are retained while I am logged in, but if I switch characters and then later come back to the original character who received the whisper, the history log does not show anything (neither whispers I sent nor whispers I received - unless from battle tag friends).

    Just wanted to let you know, I've been using WIM r428 in the beta. There are some missing features and functions, but it works as it should for the most part.

    Sorry if this was addressed already! I was wondering if there was a way to make it so that when I hit enter (which is the way I select the normal tabs in WoW to type into), it would select the last window I was in/the window that is open/the window that SHOULD still have focus. If I'm typing to someone and I hit enter, I still have to select their box again and type directly in it, otherwise hitting 'enter/return' automatically makes me type in the default WoW box. Not sure how to fix this, I could also just be dumb

    I should read comments more often. I have no non battletag/battle.net friends so I didn't notice this until today so I didn't know to even look for it. For all intensive purposes the bug should never have occurred with my 5.4.7 fixes, but it did because my fix was being bypassed entirely by something I didn't notice. When curse is actually packaging things right, I'll tag a release. Right now it's not packaging my last commit.

    Anyone else having problems where messages sent from other people are not saving in the history log? it only shows the messages I sent out not recieved. It works fine for Realid friends but not just ones I add via add friend =/ thanks!

    I have been experiencing the same issue Carman1998 posted about. WIM history is not storing the messages people send to me. It only records the messages I have sent out. I am not sure when this problem started, but I believe it started after patch 5.4.7 was downloaded. A fix for this would be very appreciated.
