6th Annual UI Author Dinner

It's that time of year again when we get together and have a great meal and hang out before Blizzcon kicks in full swing. This year we're looking at Thursday night around 9pm and will be within walking distance of the convention. For the last few years, we (Curse and WowInterface) have had the pleasure of picking up the tab for the evening, and we're glad to do so again this year.

If you'd like to attend please sign up over here.

Curse's 2011 Blizzcon Party

On Friday, October 21st from 8 PM to 2 AM on the 2nd floor of the Hilton hotel next to the Anaheim Convention Center, Curse will be celebrating BlizzCon with fellow gamers and VIPs. The party will feature an open bar, swag, live DJ, giveaways courtesy of our amazing sponsors, Logitech and Intel, and attendees from all over the gaming industry.

There will be several VIP’s in attendance including Felicia Day and other actors from the cast of The Guild, several of your favorite WoW community members, Vloggers, VCasters, and pro-players.

If you're an author, going to be at Blizzcon, and would like to attend (and haven't already got an invite) send me a PM with your name and email address.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

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!
