The new one doesn't work very well, the fan update map worked but not the questing part as much. It was so frustrating playing with the game map last night. The fact that carbonite didn't work made me just want to run instances instead of quest.

Wow-Pro & Tom-Tom are like milk and cereal for questing. That will get you through until there's a new and improved Carbonite.

Thought I'd update this thread with this quote from Rythal (The person behind the fan update.)

"I just got an email from Faatal that him & Haavok both are just to busy for carbonite, and they are going to discuss releasing the source. What does that mean? it would mean I could officially upload my patch… it also would mean that myself and other’s could move ahead full force at fixing carbonite, not only fixing it, but modularizing it instead of starting from scratch on something new.

They created a great addon, one of the best ever for WoW and no one would ever deny that, and tearing down the addon into blocks of code would allow easier repair / updates along with lowering the memory footprint.

Where does that leave RUMA? same place it was *IF* that is the best option for everyone, and what is needed. Carbonite going open just means I wouldn’t have to avoid looking at it and ways it did things to keep myself in the clear."

That's excellent news. It would be interesting to look at the source without that obfuscation they use.

I hope they OpenSource it - GPL2. This is a good amount of functionality that needs to be in game, and a complete refactor is just what the addon needs.

My carbonite keeps...screwing up and then working. My minimap keeps having a black square on it where the player dot is. The blue box of the addon's name and such in the middle of my screen and never going away. -_- I used to love this addon....but now I am regretting changing to it.

Rythal's Fan update has been removed and the carbonite addon authors have put up an actual addon even though it doesn't work. They just put a bandaid on a bleeding wound for now. I have already put Rythal's Update back on a couple of the systems in the house for the people that use the addon. Here's an updated link to the last update from Rythal. He does have intention of making his own eventually. Here's hoping he doesn't take too long and it comes out in a swift manner.

Thanks for that, I hope it still works until or if they ever fix the bugs.

Go to http://rythal.com/ . The latest update is at the top of the homepage. The download link is actually in the title bar and is the "CARBONITE FAN UPDATE DOWNLOAD" title text. The news item is, currently, first on the page.

The Highlighted quest areas on the map still don't work in Pandaria with the new 5.05.01. Or is that just me? All I can see on my map are little circles with an X threw it (example: http://i.imgur.com/X651z.png ). The markers are somewhat close to the quest area but still too vague leaving me with having to use the default WOW map.

The Carbonite authors just released the source code and added Rythal as an author on WoWI:

Rythal is working on updating this new open source version, but in the meantime you can download his latest fan update version from his site (just click the "Carbonite Fan Update Download" button at the top):

Last thing I read was Rythal was working on setting Carbonite up as modules. I understand that to mean you can use the parts you want? Be good for the nodes only guy. And I think Rythal is leaning towards keeping the name Carbonite. It does have a lot of history and name recognition. Would be a lot harder to establish a name/rep again. Faatal & Haavok apparently don't play the game anymore. Sad for us but life goes on. Nothing is as constant as change. I will throw money at Rythal if he can get my favorite add-on in working shape. :)

The latest game version is 5.1.0 (or, in my case, 5.1.0 (16309)(Release x86)). I use the US English version.

The latest Carbonite LIVE VERSION (not a BETA version) is 5.057 ( http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12965-Carbonite.html ) and the latest BETA version is 5.1.0.2 (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info21936-CarboniteBETAVERSION.html ).

One of the live versions, for some odd reason, blocked the use of Blizzards Flight Masters services. That version has been pulled and the Flight Masters now work with all of the current releases (both LIVE and BETA).

You can usually find the latest information about Carbonite on the dedicated Carbonite forums at http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=116
