ZOS: Help with Latest Reticle API?

I'm the original author of Combat Reticle, and have just returned to ESO after a hiatus. It looks like the latest ESO patch has completely changed in the reticle API, thus Combat Reticle is currently broken. I see the list of new reticle functions in the latest API docs, but is there some (minimal) documentation somewhere such that I can map what I was doing previously to this new API?

Thanks,
-A

Unfortunately there is no mapping "old" -> "new" functions list available to us. We always do a kind of trial&error or find out by ourselves.

If you got error message, or even better function names + parameters, which are not working anymore one could check the current API file to see if there is a difference.

Or you have to check other addons like RainbowReticle or other reticle related addons (Toxic Players, stealth stuff e.g.) if they help you.

yep. It has been working fine for my wife and I for a while now.

Calia was going to make some changes to it for a feature request I had but she never got around to it!

Well... that's odd. Might be that I'm testing with an unpublished/hacked version. I'll download, diff the code and see what's going on. Thanks for the input!

It's currently working for me, but yes, I still need to upload an update to it. Real life fun.
