Welcome to the Pet Emote Addon Thread. In brief, I started off playing with the Pet Emote Editor for Jorna's Pet Emote Addon. At the time, she wasn't working on it anymore and I felt that all those pet families that lacked emotes needed them. I mentioned it to my former guild (Petopians) and they were interested. Now, since I'm not the most tech savvie person, I couldn't figure out how to post the files, since the files types weren't allowed, until someone suggested I make them zip files. So, I was having to email files to people that wanted them. I mention this, because there is talk of emailing in the thread. Emailing is no longer necessary!
The zip files allow me to post them.
After I emailed Jorna concerning this project, she briefly picked back up working on it and added my custom emotes to the core of the addon. Unfortunately, Jorna has stepped away from the addon and WoW, so they will no longer be added to the core.
Thanks to Efindel taking over the nuts and bolts of this, the new emotes will be added to the addon as permanent emotes, not just the custom files. These will all be available on Curse now.Current News
I am stepping down as lead writer of PetEmote for the forseeable future and passing the reigns to Varethyn. She has shown great talent for writing solid, good quality emotes that would be suitable for a large audience and capture the essence of the beast. She has a working copy of the Editor and good grasp of how it works. I am confident that she will excel in this role.
As she will be taking over, she will be starting her own thread to post her updates and this thread will be locked. You will all still recieve credit for your contributions on her thread
Its been wonderful working with all of you. Farewell and good hunting!The Pet Emote Addon and this projectWhat PetEmote is:
PetEmote is an addon originally produced by Jorna and filled out by me and other people from Petopia. http://ammunition-company.zirkel-des-cenarius.eu/en/2011/05/06/petemote-173/
(site is gone; addon is no longer supported by Jorna) It produces random, pet family specific text emotes for your hunter pets, as well as minions and ghouls. It gives a pet (or warlock minion or ghoul!) some personality. It is now available on Curse, thanks to Efindel. Be sure you download his version! Check the author!
As always, the newest ones will be here on this thread first, until he has time to put them in. It will be the same old zip file as usual, on this page of the thread.What it does:
PetEmote causes random text emotes to appear in the game's chat box. These emotes appear to come from your pet and descibe an action the pet is "doing" To someone who has the addon, your pet's name will appear. To someone who does not, the pet's family will appear. As these are actually customized character emotes, those in the opposing faction will not be able to understand them. All they will see is "____ makes some strange gestures" as they would see for any non-standard emote.What I did:
came with an editor. To use it, according to the site, you have to be on a PC and you have to download this http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en
It is free and fairly small.
I have a copy of the no longer available Editor, of course. If you need it, send me a PM.
Once you have satisfied those two requirements, you can open the editor in the PetEmote file in your WoW addons folder.
Using the editor, I created emotes for all the families, in varying degrees of variety. Most families had few or no emotes. I have also worked to give minions more personality, as the standard emotes were very limited. There were many contributions from Petopia members as well, many of which I incorporated.Authors

Btw, the file named "setup" is the Editor. The file named "custom" is the new emotes.
