Sorry, I tried carbonite after I had reinstall my addons, and couldn't stand questing with it for more then 5 minutes. The gui was terrible, what ever they did to the minimap was horrific, and there was no possible way to understand how their system was supposed to work because their help system was laughable. Questhelper maybe (severly) messed up, but at least you can figure out how it's supposed to work...

I think it's an acquired taste type of thing. Personally I love it in particular for the minimap thing. It saves me from having to switch to my main map every so often. Then again my brother, like you, can't stand it. He's a huge QH fan.

You're right, it's a pretty complicated system.*Accept quest*Look at map, see colored area*Go to colored area and do the questWhat could they have possibly been thinking, making such a confusing mess of it?

@AltairAntaresIt took me a while to get used to the mini-map. At first I was taken aback, but after using it for a couple of days, I keep it on all the time for various things. (including the punk tracker, I hate it when not enough carbonite users are on and I can't track the punks and go kill them).As far as "helper" is concerned, I find Zygor's to be a much much better add-on to use. The tracker / objective window is nicer and it doesn't mess with your maps. If Zygor would just put in a normal quest tracker that has *all* the quests in it, not just the scripted one, I would use that all the time.

@Grubba. Ah yes, the mini map, it'd such great things, if only I could see what it was trying to say, unfortunately, all it is is some mutated screenshot from a 1980's videogame screen....

That's odd. I found Carbonite to be completely intuitive, and I think their redesign of the map is absolutely outstanding from a usability standpoint.

So unclick the little checkbox in the config and make the minimap go back to how it was.

When I first installed Carbonite months ago, I discovered how easy questing could be ... (~~what's that ~ that quest was THAT close all along /facepalm ~ Cool ~~). Every aspect of the minimap is configurable - perhaps the scroll button was necessary to make it more useful for you.I'm very grateful the Carbonite folks are in this for the love of the game - they have my support.
