This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

This addon adds information to the tooltip to remind you that you could buy an item from a vendor instead. Never get swindled again!

Currently supports Recipes, Vanity Pets, and Bags!

Frequently Asked Question:

"I have a lot of data to submit. Is there a file I can just e-mail you or something?"

In fact there is. (English localizations only please!) The file is saved in your WoW/WTF/Account/AccountName/SavedVariables folder, under SwindlerPreventer.lua

Look for the line that has SP_DataVersion. This should match the currently available version, if it doesn't, your addon and your data are out of date!

Copy everything from that line to the end of the document and get that to me, and I can use that to update the data with. If you're lazy, you can e-mail me the entire file.

If you have an addon that allows you to copy messages in the chat frame easily, then feel free to submit the in-game message instead. Either way works.

"But what if I'm not using English Localization?"

Then there's more work for you. Sorry. =( The only language I'm comfortable with is English.

But if you want to do all the work, feel free to edit your localization.lua file with your new data (it's in the zip file or WoW/Interface/AddOns/SwindlerPreventer). You'll have to do the editing by hand basically so basic coding knowledge would be required. Submit the edited file to me and I'll include it with my next update!
