Thread: Jamba or EMA ?

  1. #1

    Default Jamba or EMA ?

    Hi,

    There has been a lot of drama around Jamba these past few days.

    My question is : which one is the best for us to use between jamba and ema ?

    I have updated to Jamba 8.0 but it seems to have some issues.

    Thanks

    Jamba no longer has the team mount option. So that kills it for me. We put the issue to the bugtracker and were told its an "extra feature" and
    got no support. I can only remember this feature beeing a core one....but thats me...

    The Jamba they have on Curse atm has a few issues yes. You might need to spend some time to get acquainted with LUA and WoW API for the time being. It's not ideal but it might be the only option if you desire to have that Jamba functionality back. Most if not all of the issues in the current Jamba release can be fixed by a novice.

    EMA I only know when it was Jamba and it also had issues at launch. Personally (the choice I made) was to fix Jamba to get something working for launch.

    Just keep in mind that both Jamba and EMA have gone through a fair bit of change since the 8.x patches hit. EMA is also a new fork of Jamba, so give it a bit for Ebony to wrangle it into shape. Ultimately, though, the "best" is the one you can make work for you. The API changes destabilized a BUNCH of addons, and some are still really struggling to not just asplode, catch on fire, and burn the house down (see most of the auction house addons like TSM).
    Now playing: WoW (Garona)

    Just because you don't know something, doesn't make it true. Mount was added by Ebony on Oct 4th 2016 in version Beta-7.0.3-5.1.0c

    As for no support, not getting what you want is not the same as not getting support.

    As for mount ill just put this here, as jabberie said it was somthing i added in legion jamba was bron in wotlk, would not call that somthing thats been part of yhe core for "ages", if we was talking about taxi then i understand a bit more!

    The mount infact came from somthing hydra had. (That project is now dead and would think mount would not work)

    As why it was removed it uses arua and spell names both of witch blizzard as made big changes on. Tons off addons are broken from having problem i spend 3 10 hour long days getting ot to work for ema as ema and jamba dont use the same libs/backend systemd its not a fast job just to fix it. So no i did not remove it because am having a mardy. As well one more even ema mount is funny becouse its so hard in blizzards api to till if you mounted or not they just dont give us the tools we need!

    Firstly Ebony thank you for all your hard work both recently and in the past. I look forward to supporting you on Patreon.


    I'd appreciate help from anyone. I haven't played in 4 or 5 years so I'm learning everything over from new. I've done a clean install of WoW, elvUI and EMA. I've added my toons to a team but in EMA :

    i) I can't get automated invite to party and follow working, and

    ii) push settings isn't working.


    I notice in the EMA folder there is a bindings.xml folder - is there somewhere I am missing to define these ?

    I've tried doing discrete hot keys for /ema-team iammaster all and /ema-follow strobeonme all but they don't do anything (I may have syntax wrong, as I said its been years since I played).

    Also if the above can be sorted is the automatic quest sharing and completion working atm in EMA ?



    Thanks for any help and thanks again Ebony for all your hard work.
