Gladius not working? Please help!

Hello, ever since 5.2 came out my Gladius seems to be not working in Arenas. I have tried updating it manually, and even re downloading it and updating it but nothing seems to work. I log in and check Load out of date addons and log in, but when I type /ACP (Addon Control Panel) it says Gladius 5 - Out of Date. Can anyone help please? My skill has been decreasing because I don't have Gladius! :( Also, Gladius says its 5.1 on Curse Client. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, if it does then is there somewhere else I can get a more up to date addon? I've also tried un-checking the DR timer and enabling arena unit frames in interface.

Don't worry, my Gladius isnt working either because they havent release (on Curse) a version to properly works with patch 5.2. So that's what you still see the 5.1 version.

Its a popular addon so I guess they will release a 5.2 verison pretty soon.

... 2 mins break ...

Ok I found this link on Arenajunkie. Have not tested it but its usually a reliable site.

Keep me informed :-)

Thanks for the link. One more question (sorry for the noobness) : Once you have downloaded it, what do I do to make it work

Mine was doing the same thing, Go into your wow folder, interface, Addons, Gladius, speclist, and delete the 8th line. Did it last night and its working fine for me now

Can someone please specify the Arena Junkies link? Everytime I try to open it it says windows can't open this picture or something like that. What do I do? Can someone give me a step by step thing to do? Thanks.

1) Go to the folder where you have WoW installed. (EX: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft)
2) Open up the Interface, Addons, and Gladius Folders. (EX: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Gladius)
3) Open up the "speclist.lua" file in any text editor. You can use notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad) which comes standard on any windows computer.
4) Change this line:
[GetSpellInfo(56638)] = L["Arms"], -- Taste for Blood
To this
--[GetSpellInfo(56638)] = L["Arms"], -- Taste for Blood
Basically this tells WoW to ignore this line of code when it runs Gladius.
5) ???
6) Profit

I took all recommended steps to fix gladius, but none are working. i tried disabling all my addons to see if any were interfering with it functioning properly. I also found it interesting that when i tried to type /gladius test 3 or any combination of that to make gladius appear that it would even let me enter the text, meaning that the game just sat there waiting for me to enter the text

I'm having the same problem! I've waited for as long as 5.2 patch has been out and none of these have been working. I think Gladius is gone for me / :

Enable out of date addons ?

Check & make sure it is checked at the character login screen under Addons.
