    Lua error using Zygor and WorldFlightMap addon

    I keep getting a LUA error using both Zygor and Worldflightmap addon. I have tried turning off all other addons other than these two and I always get the same general error. I have tried running each separately with no errors. I have tried the usual deletion of my Zygor saved variables as well as completely deleting and reloading all Zygor and Worldflightmap files.

    I appears with my limited knowledge that Zygor is creating the error message. This certainly isn't a show stopper but it does get tiring getting messages in my chat window that my addons are causing errors and are slowing down the game (don't think it slows it down my Blizzard is just letting me know something isn't right).

    I get this message whenever I go to a flight location and click on the flight master which opens up the worldflightmap map (vs the normal WOW flight map).

    Not trying to ding Zygor, I love your program and can't imagine playing without it.

    Here is the error message I am seeing..

    Try doing a full guide wipe/reset.


    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 desktop client and install a fresh copy of the guides
    5. go back in game to test and let me know if that fixed it

    Sorry, I thought I had indicated I had cleaned everything off my system regarding Zygor products and did a new install. This didn't fix the problem.

    We'll check into it more to see if there is something we can do on our side for it. There is a chance this might be being caused by WorldFlightMap not being updated for 7.3.5 by it's author.

    Thanks much. I did pass the error along to the author of WorldFlightMap as well.

    I got a reply from the author of WorldFlightMap to the error code I also provided to you. Per Semlar he stated:

    "The error is from a combination of this addon and Zygor, but specifically it's being caused by this addon preventing the normal flight map from loading (because it needs to show the world map instead), and Zygor assuming that the flight map will always exist after you talk to a flight master and trying to manipulate something on it that doesn't exist.
    I could possibly prevent the error by creating a fake flight map frame for it to silently modify, but I'd have to sort through their code to figure out what they're trying to do and I don't really have time to do that right now."

    Just thought I would pass this along since it might help you debug the problem although I am sure your programmers are capable of doing that.

    The thing there is we're trying to highlight flights that you're supposed to take so you can find it on the flight map easier. The other thing we do with it is if you have the option enable to automatically take flights I believe that needs the normal flight map so the flight can be selected.

    No problem. I will just live with the error messages. They are annoying but don't hurt anything. Just an FYI. Using the regular map still highlights the path and location you should fly to. Don't know about the automatic flight since I never use that option.
