Updating the bugged quest list - the simple way

#1 » Post by Louis Wu » 25 Aug 2013 23:14

Not sure if it should be posted here ... Feel free to move.

A basic updater batch file, - no sounds, no fancy screens -, using 2 old programs, for old people like me :lol:
1. URL2FILE : http://www.chami.com/free/url2file_wincon.html
2. SSR (Simple Search and Replace Command Line Tool) : http://www.programmersheaven.com/downlo ... nload.aspx

Simply create in the AddOns -> bugchecker directory, with Notepad, a file called update_buglist.bat
and put inthere following 2 lines :
---------------
URL2FILE http://www.truewow.org/quests.php list.lua
ssr 0 "<br>" "/SSR_NL/" list.lua
---------------
The first command saves the list into the file.
The second command replaces the "<br>" formatting info with a newline character.

As this is a .bat file, you can simply double click it to run, or you can call it before starting WoW : add as a third line e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Wow.exe


And btw if you don't like "quest NIL is bugged", edit core.lua, and replace the last appearance (at the bottom of the file) of
printQuest(id);
by
printQuest(arg1);

Could we get an update with the new link to a list of bugged quests? I don't know where to find it after the website upgrade. (Looks fabulous, btw! :D Really excited!)

These quests in blasted lands seems to be bugged. you can turn in only one, after that you cannot turn anymore in ever if it says go turn it in. the complete quest is grayed out. thank you.

You must abandon and retake them in order to turn them in.
