Hi there,

 

usually I install Aslain's Red Triangle, but I saw the WOLF version in that post and installed it. Very nice although it is a bit too slim for my taste.

Anyway I got interested in modding and I'm eager to try some new shapes.

I'm attaching what I have in mind. Can you pls explain me HOW TO or address me where I can find a GUIDE.

Thank you,

You must learn how to unpack wow game files and identify which file is the one you want to mod.

For this mod you also need to search for a guide to edit .swf files (This is something not related to wow).

From the unpacked files take the .swf (check the name inside my rar) and replace the corresponding .png.

I will make one as you suggested anyway, but have in mind that it must be transparent and relatively thin, so it does not hide whatever is in your vision (when you move your mouse pointer low).

If you just want to experiment about changing images and to not mess with unpacking,editing etc, you can do it very easy....

Go to aslain's topic and download the file i uploaded in my latest post.

You can use it as it is, replacing only a .png with yours.

Thank you very much!!

I'll definetley give it a try.

 

And yes, I understand that it must be mostly trasparent. I was just toying with idea it might give a better indication even if I know that RPF gives a "generic" indication of enemy's heading. I'm just curious to to see how it works.

Regards,

Yes it is not an accurate indication.

Thats why the wolf is like 3 indicators.

It is a big indicator (client's default), that closes to wolf's cheek (2nd) and finally to mouth (3rd) :Smile_glasses:

It does not affect the accuracy at all.

The only thing i noticed, is that from version 0.8.0.0 the indicator is in a different file than previous versions and now is more "jumpy".

Until version 0.7.9.0 was at danger.swf and was very smooth.

Happy modding :)

Updated for 0.8.5.0

Hey Stratos!! Just figured out the "old version" was messing up with minimap and ribbons.

Thanks for finding the time to update it!!! :cap_book:

 

Since now you are the only one providing alternatives to the RPF's look, why don't you agree with Aslain to have it officially included in the ModPack.

I bet many folks are unaware of this Topic and would like to have it! :cap_rambo:

Yes, I tried both. With the original one (1.0) I had also Ribbons issues: some of them would not show up, especially the Hit with its 4 sub-categories.

Plus the icon letter (A,B,C) for the caps in the minimap would not show up. Nor I would get updates on capping progress (always on the minimap)

 

Now all was fine again, but for the planes in version 2.0

I'll give a try to this... version 2.1

Unfortunately it's still not working, both v2.1 and 2.2 (your third upload that I'm quoting up here).

Everything is fine but the planes. Enemy squadrons don't show up on minimap.

Waiting for your reply.

Thanks

I am using it right now and its working.

Are you sure its the latest?

Latest redtriangle has CRC for hub_lib.swf:   9CC492ED

You also need to restart the client after installation.

Ok!! Thanks very much for the update, Stratos!! :cap_book:

 

As for including your mods within Aslain's modpack, mine was just a suggestion.

I don't really know how it works, but I'm kinda sure you and Aslain need to talk and agree on that. At the very least he might need a license or a waiver or a consent form by you even if we are talking about free stuff.

Cheers!!!

My mods are made for ME first , then i am sharing them for whoever finds them useful.

So i dont give a "licence".

All are completely free to use, distribute, or edit.
