As explained in my previous post: When you download the CustomEmotes ZiP file from the first post go to your downloads and extract the files from it. You should have a "custom-emotes" (or "custom-emotes.xml") file, a "custom-emotes.lua" file and a "custom-emotes.xml.bak" file. Copy and paste those files into the PetEmote addon folder in your WoW Interface folder, replacing the ones already there if there are any.

EDIT: I am a massive derp. If you downloaded the file and did as above but nothing is working I just found out why - the Feathermanes family name didn't save properly and was still "untitled". I've updated the file in the first post so it should work now. Sorry about that.

Hi

First of all, thanks for maintaining a great adoon and adding all the new things.

I would like to suggest a change to how the emotes start out.
They have this space between the name and the ' that I find annoying.
Like - Onua *space* 's super aweome pet does great things...
Onua 's Mechanical Ninus activates Hunt mode as it detects a nearby critter.

Its a minor thing, but it has been annoying me for a long time - sorry.

Unfortunately, I don't think that's something that can be changed—the addon uses the blizzard default chat system and emotes, which always include a space after the player's name/server. Even if you type in the emote manually, you'll still get that space.

You could change it to include a reaction from your character as well so that the space makes sense, e.g. "Xella sighs as her pet sporebat Sporey spits out a spore cloud." or something, but that would require I guess a second gender check (for your character, as well as your pet). That's about the best you're gonna get, though :(

Oh well, guess i will have to live with it.
The option with the rewritten reaction from the character seems nice, but i guess that will take quite some work from the addon authors.
Thanks a lot for the answer!

Yep it's as Xella said. What PetEmote really does is make automatic, randomised emotes using the in-game emote system which has that space. Adding a reaction for the hunter for each and every emote wouldn't really work as not only are there a LOT of emotes to cater to for that but it could upset a lot of people. I wouldn't imagine everyone who uses the addon would enjoy seeing their hunter sigh every time their sporebat spits out a spore cloud (to unashamedly steal Xella's example).

If however you like that idea for yourself and have the time to go through each emote the Editor program is available to download in my first post. That will allow you to edit them for your personal benefit. It's easy to use, just remember to save as you go along just in case (I've been there, made a bunch of emotes then had to retype them cos I didn't save properly x_x) and remember that any personal emotes will be overwritten whenever the addon core is updated.
