Zygor Guides Post Patch 7.0 Troubleshooting Tips

by (1 years ago).


The pre-patch for the upcoming Legion expansion is now live for all regions and as to be expected with a patch of this size there are a lot of changes that may be affecting our guide addon.

If you’re having problems with your Zygor addon it’s a good idea to first disable any other third party addons you may be running to make sure the issue isn’t with one of those, or a conflict between those.

We have released several updates since the patch, some of which require a full reinstallation rather than your basic update. To make sure you have the latest version of the guide, and that it is installed properly, exit the game (important) and click the wrench Repair icon on the client and select Reinstall.

If all else fails you can try a complete Zygor addon wipe. Note this will reset all your Zygor addon settings.
1. exit WoW
2. go to the WoW/Interface/Addons folder and delete the ZygorGuidesViewer folder
3. go to the WoW/WTF/Account/<accountname>/SavedVariables folder and delete the Zygor files in there
4. run the installer client and install a fresh copy of the guides
5. go back in game and see if that fixed it

All of the following problems should be resolvable by correctly updating to the latest version:

Resolved Issues:
– ParseHeader error
– Green mini-map icon glitch
– Target NPC raidmarking temporarily disabled due to annoying built-in script warnings.
– Garrison functions – garri guide loading issue
– Internal tests (ZGV.ERROR)
– Get_recipe issue
– Mailtools mi_count issue
– Pandaren starter guides bug
– Gear score editables missing
– Disabled broken Flash minimap icon functions
– Fix for profession guides macro crash.
– Fix for profession guides not detecting skills properly.
– Fix: Do Not Replace heirlooms tooltip has been clarified. New options added to specify what heirlooms to replace (with or without bonus xp).
– Fix: Points of Interest hiding and tooltips
– Issues with class quests in the starter guides

    I did the reinstall thing and it worked for a time but the loremaster guides are not useable. They are apparently empty after a resetup and a redownload. Does someone have a solution for that?

  2. Andrea

    Any news on the gold guide? Pretty much subbed for that and where for farm stuff. Hopefully its up and working soon. I have also noticed that a lot of dungeon locations aren’t showing up properly.

      Our soonest expected estimate is by August 30th in time for Legion. We’re really sorry about this, but Blizzard seriously messed things up and we’re having to completely rebuild things to get it working again.

      Give ’em a break. The API messed up all the Auction house addons. ;P
      For simple buying and selling the Mobile app works well, If slower. And, Wowauction?, I think, website has good suggestions of what to farm. There aren’t as good as Zygor Gold but they will carry you to 30th August.
      Good luck Zygor guys. Keep up the good work.

      I agree please fix it I will be horribly upset if you waste a full month fixing this as thats the only reason I paid for it this month before legion came out…and might I suggest you work on a toy hunting guide as well people will like that gives them something to do

  5. Randy Smith

    I had the blank guides window, so I reinstalled and they work fine, however, the arrow doesn’t work.I only get the stealth arrow which is a X in a Circle, no directions indicated.

  6. Michael Kell

    I’ve done all the items you suggested, now the issue i’m having is when Zygor starts to download, it gets to 1.2 and then stops. now because i deleted the previous version, i’m not able to access the repair function, as it tells me i need to install the download first. thanks for your prompt response to this issue. Thank you.

  7. Karl Ishoy

    I now have access to the zygor client and the zygor viewer in the game. However when I try to choose a guide, the Home window opens but with nothing in it. When I click on the Home menu choice, nothing happens. This means I have a blank viewer window with no steps showing at all. Makes it sort of hard for me to play the game without any idea of where to go and what to do next. I need your help here please.

  8. Neekolasso

    Hey guys,

    this fix worked for me. Thank you for staying on top of things. I just subbed for the gold guide and did not read this patch first. Bummer, hopefully I can get it soon.

    Thanks again Zygor!

    1. stuart harris

      Yeah. I subbed yesterday for the gold guide as well (I’m thinking my transmog sales are going to go flat leading up to Legion.) I’m disappointed, but reassured to see it mentioned as a known issue.

    So I’ve done what you’ve said and he issue I’m having is that the guide just refuses to work in game, the notifications button appears at the top of the page but the guide doesn’t pop up. This annoys me because this is a service I’m paying for and now it isn’t working at all since I’ve started paying for it.
