As someone with some serious memory issues thanks to ADHD? Add-on managers coming into existence was a legitimate game-changer back in the day - don't ask me how long I'd forget to update before the original curse client made it easy to check 'em at a glance...and it's just so frustrating that now it's like...support satan, or just try to remember to update manually again, since half of what I use is Curse-only. Shame more creators aren't willing to host their things on Github, or Wago - it's not like I don't want add-on creators to get paid...they're doing hours of work for the benefit of others. We all benefit from their work, and nothing is free! Compensation is to be expected. But...Overwolf only giving us a lighter add-on manager when they essentially strong-arm people into using their client, or none? Gross. Calculated. Makes me mistrust that they'll continue to support it, so...maybe I'll just have to set a monthly reminder to update add-ons!
Not that bad, i tried the Overwolf bloat last year for a day and its just hilarious, reminds me on the razer software(which i deinstalled after setting the mouse), so im pretty happy the stand alone released and ill give it a go...im too lazy to update without and i sure dont want to miss a few addons. So far the client works fine, i can close it and there is nothing in the background, very nice.
holy cow been using curseforge for a little bit... already broke my addons. lol
So, I'm not one that wants to get into the argument on either side. I probably post something once every 3-4 years. But I had to come on and post about the CurseForge standalone.From the end of swtich from the OG Twitch Addon Manager Client to Overwolf's CurseForge, I've been using WowUp. But only 80% of my addons are supported by it so I had to get the CurseForge standalone if I didn't want to regularly manually update the rest of my addons. My UI is completely transformed so I have to maintain the addons, so I downloaded it approximately a week after it was released.At first, for the month of May, the CurseForge standalone seemed to act exactly like the OG Twitch Addon Manager Client...which begs the question: why didn't CurseForge just keep it in the 1st place...but that's a side note... NOW since the start of June, every time AFTER I open the client up, run and complete the updates, when I go to close out the client, a SYSTEM POPUP forces me to make the decision "allow to make changes to your system or not"... thankfully, I have my computer set that nothing downloads or comes through my system without my approval or consent. I close it out after saying, "NO", but, again, it begs the question: That NEVER happened with the OG Twitch client. SO....WHAT IS CURSEFORGE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD ON MY COMPUTER?
