Update to Cog of Doom


Just wanted to share this. A very enterprising person posted this in the Bug Report Blizzard forums. Link

Deyneth made up scripts for 2 macros, the first of which you'd use whenever there might be a possibility of freezing the game. I'd recommend turning off the tooltips whenever going into a random dungeon, like when zoning into the Oculus, your mouse naturally lands right on the entrance portal, causing the freeze-up. Also, definitely do it when going for the Headless Horseman. The first script will still allow you to interact with objects, it just won't pop up a tool tip description when you hover over them.

And, when the danger has passed, like after you've killed the HH, use the second to turn tooltips back on.

I've taken the liberty of posting the scripts here as well. Copy & paste into macros for your toons, and you shouldn't have any problems. /cheers for Deyneth!

Turn Off Tooltips

/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Temphide);

Turn On Tooltips

/script GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Show);


  1. Just a huge "thank you!". Haven't had a disconnect since you posted this. :)

    And already got 6 horses... although 2 on the same char...

  2. Hey Kring!

    Yeah, it's been working beautifully for me too. Awesome work by Deyneth.

    I've gotten 5 mounts for 4 toons, but no sword or laughing helm yet.
