    TipTac replacement?

    I've been using TipTap for many many years of my WoW experience and it stopped being updated over a year & a half ago. Well 9.0 completely broke it so now I need a replacement. People were reporting the break on the curseforge page for the addon going back as early as Aug 2020. For those not familiar with TipTac its an addon that allows you to move the tooltip in game to be where ever you want it to be instead of defaulted in the bottom right corner directly above your bags.

    MoveAnything allows you to move, well, anything. Works great as of a few patches ago before I went back to ElvUI for a bit.

    - Tiny Tooltip
    - Tiptop

    Thoose are the ones I can think of right now.

    Been using leatrix plus. Has a bunch of quality of life things, one being the ability to move, rescale, and recolor tooltips.

    Thanks a ton for the info. I ended up going with Tiny Tooltip after checking it out. I'm loving it actually. IMHO its better than Tip Tap was.

    there is a fix on tiptac curse page that fixes it by changing 2 lines in the addon text file :

    changing line 371 in ttItemRef.lua from:



    local _, currencyCount, currencyTexture = GetCurrencyInfo(id);




    to:



    local _, currencyCount, currencyTexture = C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo(id);

    and

    I changed line 4 of ttStyle.lua from

    local GetQuestGreenRange = GetQuestGreenRange;
    to

    local GetQuestGreenRange = UnitQuestT

    Be advised that the above fixes only the actual tooltip display. If you try to go into options, for example, you'll get errors and your tooltip style will break. If you never need to open the options, you might be fine.

    These are band-aid fixes to the core function only. They are by no means a proper fix of the entire addon.

    Also, the comments page lists a lot more line changes than you quoted.

    The other line changes *may* fix the option issues, haven't tested. My last test was yesterday before some of these other line changes were posted.

    It's working fine with those two fixes only I don't know what you mean.

    Just (very happily) adding that this is working for me as well, and all seemingly works normally. The community-sourced fixes are now being rolled into a GitHub repo available in the comments section of the TipTac Curse page (which I can't link here).

    I removed the old TipTac, downloaded the updated master file from the repo, manually dropped the four replacement folders into to Addons, and launched the game. No issues or LUA errors so far.

    Someone is very kindly going to look into fixing the backdrops and border settings. The curse page has the links to the latest commits with everyone's fixes incorporated, but some features still don't work. I'll wait patiently, cause i don't like tinytooltip at all.
