What does it do?

This add-on replicates guild chat and achievement spam between multiple guilds.

The add-on's functionality is very close to LemonKing's Cross Guild Chat, but the management interface (or lack of one in GreenWall's case) is very different.


Do I need to run it?

No, you don't. But guild chat will be very, very frustrating for you if you don't since you will only see about 1% of the complete conversations.

How do I get it?

The latest version is available on our website or at Curse.

It is also mirrored in WoWMatrix, but we make no guarantees about how frequently WoWMatrix updates or the integrity of the files that it provides.

You can also check out the latest version from the guild Subversion repository, if you are technically inclined and foolhardy enough to run pre-release code.

Installation

  1. Exit "World of Warcraft" completely
  2. Download the mod you want to install
    • Make a folder on your desktop called "My Mods"
    • Save the .zip file to this folder.
    • If, when you try to download the file, it automatically "opens" it... you need to RIGHT click on the link and "save as..." or "Save Target As".
  3. Extract the file - commonly known as 'unzipping'
    • Windows
      • Windows XP has a built in ZIP extractor. Double click on the file to open it, inside should be the file or folders needed. Copy these outside to the "My Mods" folder.
      • WinZip: You MUST make sure the option to "Use Folder Names" is CHECKED or it will just extract the files and not make the proper folders how the Authors designed
    • Mac OS X
      • StuffitExpander: Double click the archive to extract it to a folder in the current directory.
  4. Verify your WoW Installation Path. That is where you are running WoW from and THAT is where you need to install your mods.
  5. Move to the Addon folder
    1. Open your World of Warcraft folder. (default is C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\)
    2. Go into the "Interface" folder.
    3. Go into the "AddOns" folder.
    4. In a new window, open the "My Mods" folder.
    5. The "My Mods" folder should have the "GreenWall" folder in it.
    6. Move the "GreenWall" folder into the "AddOns" folder
  6. Start World of Warcraft
  7. Make sure AddOns are installed
    1. Log in
    2. At the Character Select screen, look in lower left corner for the "addons" button.
      • If button is there: make sure all the mods you installed are listed and make sure "load out of date addons" is checked.
      • If the button is NOT there: means you did not install the addons properly.

Usage

All commands must be prefixed with "/greenwall" or "/gw".

As an example, the configuration option for co-guild tagging is "tag". To turn it on, you would enter one of the following commands. In the command descriptions, optional arguments are in square brackets and alternatives are separated by the pipe character.

/greenwall tag on
/gw tag on

To view the current configuration, you would enter one of the following.

/greenwall tag
/gw tag


Configuration

You don't need to configure GreenWall at all to use it. Most of the configuration is done by the guild officers, it's a big mess of gibberish in the guild information tab in game. But you can change certian aspects of its behavior to suit your tastes.
