    I am having issues in installing patch 5.2. As soon as I solve them, I will check what's happening.

    Greetings,

    I love this mod. Recently (since 5.2 at least) I have not be getting all the timers in AV. I get most of them, but not the West Tower Timer. I believe there may be some others missing as well. If there is anything I can do to help with this, please let me know.

    Any chance that this could be made modular (or as separate addons)? Basically I love the tomtom-style arrows for the flag carrier, but I have other preferred addons for the other features I need. It's a great addon, but I only need (want) the "arrows to enemy flag carrier" part.

    (Alternatively, is there any way I can make this happen without changes on your end?)

    @rauthamar: Go

    Sometimes Blizzard removes objective from map, My addon tries to not rely on static informations so it usually keeps working, but sometimes changes are a bit more disruptive. As soon as I find some time to run a couple of AV I will check it.

    Abour boxes placement, (my english is not so good) by narrower you mean to reduce height or width?

    When I play AV I have no timer for West Tower? Is that a screen error on my box or a code error? Just thought I'd ask. I'm so glad you've rewritten this. It's been my favoirtie BG timer program for years. The old version still worked up to about 9 months ago (partially anyway)

    I'd love the boxes for Alliance and Horde in AV to be stacked not side by side so the window could be narrower. Just a thought.

    Thanks Again

    Thank you for taking a look at this. One other thing that I have noticed is that: I play Alliance and when I am in WG and BFG the prediction is always for the Horde point of view and therefor wrong from my point of view.

    Again, thanks a lot and I really hope these are easy fixes.

    @ChWolfgang: Go

    Actually, I had not the chance to review it for the new expansion, only changed TOC: I will run some bg in this weekend to see what's happening

    I love this addon and use it all the time. I have been having a problem for a while where I get odd icons, usually 2 per name, in the timer/info window. Any idea what is going on?

    Thanks again!

    P.S> it seems to be wrong in every BG. If there is any other info or tests I can do to help please let me know.

    I removed arrow code and it didnt fix the lag. I dont know what it is then... But when flag is taken, FPS drops to the crawl...
