LibAnnyoingUpdateNotificationInGame - Launig  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 7
by: Ayantir, Baertram
This library displays a message when user addons are out of date


  1. The library inits itself at first launch
  2. It waits 10 days
  3. After this grace period, if user have 1+ addons outdated and enabled, it displays a message warning the user to update his addons!
  4. Each 30 days, the same condition is re-examined
  5. When a new API is detected, the library reinits and returns to step 1


Message is displayed at 1st player activated event (this should be after login).
If a market announcement is present, dialog is delayed to the next one.

The dialog is shown in the current input mode, Keyboard or Gamepad.
  • Users can't move, can't cast, like in any other dialog scene
  • He can press E (primary action) to go on and open the addon update website at http://www.esoui.com or press the abort action (ALT is the standard key) or ESC to close the dialog
  • A random background image among all ZOS DLC background pictures is displayed to illustrate
  • Screen is not faded


Messages are translated in English, French & German.
Messages are not displayed on PTS!

The library provides it's own txt file and it will be showing the dialog reminder without any function call, automatically if you got the library enabled.
You cann access the library via the global variable
Code:
Launig
without the usage of LibStub!

The only function existing to be called is this one:
Lua Code:
  1. --Shows the reminder dialog
  2. Launig:Show()
v7: Updated API. Removed debug message if library was loaded multiple times (e.g. from within any addon's txt manifest file directly->Which should not be done anymore & as standalone library).
v6: LibStub not needed anymore. Updated APIVersion. Added AddOnVersion & IsLibrary: true. Added global variable Launig. Added Launig:Show() function to show the reminder popup. Made the library standalone possible.
v5: Grace Period is now 15 days and loop is now 40 days. This should display the warning 3 times per Update.
v4: Fixed a bug when deleting ZO_Ingame.lua SavedVariable. Grace Period is now 10 days and loop is now 30 days.
v3: Keyboard Background image now include Chapters
v2: "Outdated add-ons" instead of "Obsolete Addons" for english title
v1: Initial release

Re: Crossing the line

Please calm down and try to think about users who like the idea to get noticed about "not actual addon versions". This lib was born to help.
What is the problem with a reminder every once a month and after the game updated the API version?

If you do not like the reminder just deactivate this library in your addon manager.
If there is no library to deactivate search your AddOns for "launig" and just delete the folder in your addons (not sure which addons are using it, added to their subfolders. Tell these addon devs to remove it and let the users install the library on their own instead please).
After all it's your choice to install (or not) the addons using this lib.
And it's one click on the "Later" button to close the popup. This is way less effort then writing in 2 forum threads and rant about the "surveillance", throw key words like "police" and spread bad vibes to all

Oh and btw: ZOs has build in the same stuff and you notice it after EACH API patch: The "allow outdated addons" checkbox is disabled and addons show as outdated in the addon manager, even after enabling the checkbox. Please use /bug ingame to inform ZOs about this annoying procedure you need to click and do each time as well...

So either I guess your forum name is the truth here and we cannot argue at all with you,
or you are able to read and follow my posted suggestions above.

But if you want to rant again here in the comments and start some fight because of your personal dislike, be warned that I'll remove these comments, if they do not provide any value.

So, if we CHOOSE to continue to use outdated addons, because those addons are useful but no longer being updated, for example, it will annoy us with a reminder to update them, regardless?

What's next? You'll check the list of addons we have installed and then force us to remove any addons you don't "approve" or you'll pop up more "reminders"?

I guess Phinix uses some addons to show the "preloading chat messages" (before event_player_activated) as well as the message he and you see are thrown at exactly that moment (before chat is loaded and shown).
PChat does this if you enable it in the settings (maybe it's standard settings is set to be enabled as well).

Some addons which do a d("debug message here..") output during addon loading won't show these until any addon enabling the "pre player activated chat messages" will do so.

I am getting the message "The library 'Launig' was already loaded!" every time I log in or reload.

It appears to happen when another addon loads this addon as an included library when it is also installed as standalone. To fix it I changed line 69 to read:

Code:
ONLY_LOAD_ONCE = "",
Also...

The pics are randomly taken from DLC images ingame so if it's broken you:
-either need to logout, delete the file ShaderCache.cooked in your live folder and login again (takes some time)
-or the graphic is missing ingame and we cannot change it (ZOs problem!)

On that note, it's also rather annoying that this pops up telling you to update add-ons when there are no updates to download. There's a major difference between players not keeping their add-ons up-to-date, which this is targeting, and authors not keeping their add-ons up-to-date, which is what's actually more important.

Is this automatically incorporated in LAM, or is it just in some add-ons?
When an addon is not updated, users can simply switch to an updated one.

And this annoying message also helps to get new devs pushing releases with maybe only an API bump.

And I do agree that I don't respect my own lib because all my addons are not updated. But that's the goal.

Don't forget, it's an annoying message.
Edited to add:

In the spirit of adding a productive suggestion to this, would you consider supplementing this featurs that might make it a much better -- in my opinion, obviously -- tool for achieving the goals?

First, give addon authors like Harven, mentioned below, the ability to opt-out by setting an appropriate field in their addon, or something like that. That way, if their policy is explicitly that they do not update the API version in the manifest, they can use a deliberate opt-out facility to prevent the alert when their addon is loaded.


Too grumpy ranting you should ignore follows, preserved for posterity or something

So.... uh, could you maybe go talk with Harven about addons such as Harven's Improved Skills Window, which he doesn't rush to update the API version on, because it still works fine.

Having acquired this indirectly by way of another addon, it pretty much sucks to get a painful warning when there is no specific action required, I'm not real inclined to hack the manifest just for this, and the upstream author isn't ... in agreement with your motivational position.

Not to mention that there isn't a "maintained" alternative.

I understand your motivation, and don't think you are exactly wrong. I just think that you are taking an unfortunately scattershot approach, and one that will not be very effective in achieving the goal.
