    I installed the new 5.2 version this morning as well as the 1.0.6 updater. I cannot use the guide anymore. It freezes the game every time and not sure what to do. I reinstalled the guides, but that doesn’t seem to work. Please email me when you know what the problem might be.
    Thank you,

    I hate this new update and want to roll back to the other version. The map does not move and is not sizeable. When I set the default to zero I don’t like that look either size it is the quest map and should be the city map only.

    I also liked being able to move my quest around and not able to do that now. How can it get the prior version. Instead of adding more and more features why don’t you fix some of the features that I use all the time like having the exploration setup by regions instead of having to X all the area to get to the ones you want, or updting the locations of quest, or fixing the tabard loction etc

    I am very unhappy right now and until this get fix I am disabling it :(

    @Andrew, Andrew, I had the same problem when I upgraded to version 5.0. Turns out that it lost where I had set the install path and launcher path. Go back into your setup on the updater and reset those values accordingly. After I did that everything was fine.

    I can’t live without Carbonite’s “go to” feature, so I can easily find trainers, vendors, etc. If Dugi just had that built in, I wouldn’t even both installing Carbonite anymore.

  9. Jack Madsen  3 years ago

    This is a great addition. One thing i loved about Carbonite is you can right click on the make and have the opiont to either set the point as the “go to” for you Dugi Arrow or remove the currently set “go to”. That would be awesome if that kind of function could be added.

    Reply

    Dugi Reply:

    @Jack Madsen, we do have that option, I just haven’t documented it yet but it was mentioned in our patch note.

    Hold CTRL and Right Click on world map to start new waypoint and you can also link them together by holding SHIFT and Right Click on world map.

    I will release a new video tutorial to cover this feature soon.

    Very much like the additions, however I’m old and stuck in my ways and like the Carbonite’s map. I do not like the little round Bliz map that I can not see much at all on. This is not saying that I will not try the new additions but just can’t get the idea out of my mind of leaving Carbonite.
    Love all the thingd that you and your fellow helpers are doing and like the other guy said if it was not for your Guides I would not have 6 toones over level 80.
    Keep up the good work.

    @Sunbendyr, I tend to think that Carbonite is a leveling addon. However, there are only a couple of reasons that I would use it. One is for the map (big reason) and the ability to find certain things at times (ie vendors that you might not visit often or a new city). The fact that you can lean on Carbonite when you can’t quite find something on Dugi’s (ie another mob suggestion when you have killed all the mobs and don’t want to wait) was great.

    That said, I don’t use Carbonite any longer. The zooming map (carbonite’s), in and out, works so much better that blizz’s. I was hoping Blizz would incorporate a Carbonite like map but it has not happened. Finding zones and friends with the map was pretty cool. But Carbonite has way more built in than most users even come close to using. I don’t expect Dugi to ever build this in to their guide but I have to say I would love it.

    One of the things that helps me speed up my questing is to /target mob-name to find that certain mob in an area. Then I sometimes set a raid marker on that mob to help me find it quicker. It could be based on part of a quest objective; such as slay 10 mobs of one type and 8 mobs of another. So I would have to re-write my macro for each name of the mobs that I have to find for every quest.

    Will you ever add a targeting button to help us find mobs quicker for any given quest?

    I always enjoy learning about new features being added to the best leveling guide out there. I am also a “fan” of carbonite. I have been since I discovered it before Blizz declared it off limits to charge for addons. I liked it so well then that I subscribed to it. Although I was happy with Blizzard’s announcement that developers could not charge for addons I was worried that might cause Carbonite to disappear. I am glad that is not the case. I like the new features you’ve added very much. In fact I don’t really see them as competition to Carbonite, but as a way to better integrate things. I don’t really care that much about the “leveling” portions of their addon. What I find indispensable is their map system. So of course I will use all of what you are now adding into the guide and still be able to use what I want from Carbonite. I’m a happy camper all around, heh.

    Looking forward to this great addition to the guide. The auto target macro is a god-send, when it’s available I can find and target the objective npc. The new map feature due out soon is also a great feature. The heads-up display for the map and single quest targeting really makes this guide shine.

    Hey Dugi,

    Looking great and if it becomes available, i will certainly use it.
    Sometimes dugiguide and carbonite don’t match exactly with waypoints.
    And its directing me in a complete wrong direction.

    Thanks in advance for this update,

    @aluray, if you click on the Objective tracker button it will use the waypoint provided by blizzard but if you click the green button it will use the waypoint provided by Dugi Guides so there are two options there.

    Hmm, I don’t know if I like this. There’s a reason I don’t use Carbonite. I like that Dugi’s organizes the quests for you, if it just gave me everything at once I don’t see the point of using the leveling guide.Carbonite just wasted my time.

    @Guivre, well dugi guides can control which quest should be displayed in your tracker, this will only happen if the guide thinks you can do multiple quest at the same time. But the current step in dugi guides should always be your priorty.

    I have a question about the merging of your AddOn and Blizzard’s Quest Tracker. Will the Merged one show what the AddOn itself shows when mergeded? Meaning will it show the name of the quest of task (like it does now) or will it just show the Objectives (Quest).

    Reply

    Custom avatarFootball Reply:

    @lilocowboy, it is showing the quest of task, and the objective with optional cord tooltip is shown in a bubble like before. It’s already working with the current version. Try it yourself. It’s awesome! Much cleaner interface this way. The tooltip anchor can be placed at the top/left/right/bottom aso. Very convenient. Watch the video mate :)

    Hi Dugi
    Been using your guides like forever and i am 60 years old! i have levelled 2 or 3 85′s now and do not know what i would do without my Dugi guides.
    I was very happy to see unlike some other guides that you always include “options” in your guides after all we are not all wired up the same way when it comes to game playing, the abilty to choose is, in my humble opinion essential. If i like i keep it running if i hate i can switch it off. Brilliant! always look forward to your emails Dugi cos i know they are always filled with useful info and help.
    Long may you reign as Number 1 master addon maker LoL!

    Looks great! Will the tracking now also be able to switch between targets, when there is more than one type of target for a quest? F.ex. if you need to find “Troll Shaman”, and “Troll Warrior” for a quest today, the targeting will only target one of them, even if you change the model in the model previewer. If the target button changes to whatever is in the model previewer, it would be a big improvement!

    @Jesper Ryskin, The first video above is answering your question. When you switch quest in the tracker, the modelviewer will switch too, as will the target button ;)

    Reply

    @Jesper Ryskin, currently the target button will rotate between the two target.
    eg 1st click “Troll Shaman”
    2nd click “Troll Warrior”

    Reply

    Jesper Ryskin Reply:

    @Dugi, First, I was surprised that I missed it. I now realize it is because I put the button in my action bar, and has a key bind. When using the key bind, the target will only be the first of the available ones. However, when clicking your button with my mouse you are right, it switches.

    Reply

    Dugi Reply:

    @Jesper Ryskin, that is our fault for not pointing it out in our video, and also recommended the wrong way of keybinding the target button. ( I will fix that up)

    the best way is to create your own macro with the following

    /click DugisGuideViewer_TargetFrame

    and this will work exactly like clicking the target button.

    Jesper Ryskin Reply:

    @Dugi, Thx – however this macro does not work at all (for me).

    @Dugi, Unfortunately, that’s the one thing that I was hoping this was about. Until that happens, I’ll still be tempted to use Carbonite. Also, I like how Carbonite can show me where virtually any vendor, mailbox, etc is in the game and gives me a waypoint to get there.

    But I also understand that’s a different kind of addon entirely, not necessarily a leveling addon like this one is meant to be.

    @Dugi, I was also hoping that you replaced the default map. I also hate it, and like the Carbonite one. I love how the Carbonite map handles the way points, and has the points of interest built in. If you want me to drop carbonite, you will have to replace the default minimap with something along the line like the carbonite map.
