    Cog of Doom

    COG OF DOOM

    If you are getting stuck somewhere and your screen is freezing up, and every time you log in on that char it freezes up, it's probably the "Cog of Doom" problem everyone is having.

    Simple fix.

    Log onto an alt and create this macro under general macros:




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




    (That will turn your tooltip off and allow you not to get stuck again. If you are ever in a place you know there may be a cog...little engineering wheel you can click...just use your macro and you won't get frozen. If you already got frozen, you can log in, click this macro and you'll be unstuck. Note: You do not have to click anything to get stuck, even if the cog just appears on your screen you can get frozen.)

    To turn your tool tip back on make this macro:




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




    Hope this helps!

    Today a Blue on the forums posted this script as a potential fix as well:

    /console fixedfunction 1


    He recommends then restarting WoW, a simple re-log will not work.

    I tried this and will report the results later

    Now that I look into it, and in case Blizzards fix doesn't work, there is also this: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info18389-CrashProofTooltip.html
