Using Rematch + TD Scripts
Because I think it can be a huge relief (at least for repeatable fights) and since it appears to be a complicated matter for many people I'd like to show you in this little guide how fast and easy this topic can be tackled.

There will be an article about the functions and advantages of every listed AddOn soon. This one is just to show how quick and clear you can make use of Rematch + TD Script.
If you want to learn how to write TD Scripts you can click this link with instructions for it: Writing TD Scripts.

1. Required AddOns



Rematch

tdBattlePetScript

tdBattlePetScript Rematch


Also you'll need a source from which you can get strings and scripts prompt and easy.
Fortunately this site is just the right one for that task.
Every strategy automatically offers a Rematch String and those that are marked with the respective Tag also provide a TD Script.
Hint: when a strategy doesn't include a script on its own there is a good chance somebody in the comments is sharing one.


2. Importing Rematch Strings




































1. Open the Pet Journal ingame. On the right edge you'll see one or multiple tabs (which you can edit). Now right click on the tab in that you want to import a certain team.
2. Now left click on "Import Teams".
3. A window will open in which you can insert a Rematch String.


3. Obtaining a Rematch String from Xu-Fu






































1. Go to the desired strategy on http://wow-petguide.com/.
2. Now left click on the button "Rematch String".
3. Act as described above and then import the already saved string in the open window.
4. Click "Save".


4. Importing TD Scripts







































1. Right click on the saved team ingame.
2. Left click on "Write script".
3. A window opens to either write or insert a script.


5. Obtaining scripts from Xu-Fu






































1. Go to the desired strategy on http://wow-petguide.com/.
2. Now left click on the button "TD Script".
3. Act as described above and then import the already saved script in the open window.
4. Click "Save".


That's it!








When you face the corresponding encounter Rematch will now automatically (depending on your settings) load the right team and will also enable you to press just one button (by default A) to play every turn.

The rematch auto button is not showing up for me. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a known bug? I'm in Gnomeregon dungeon. I realize now that I didn't write the TD script. I only imported the team. Now, the issue I have, when I right click the team there is no option to write script. (edited)

Hello, i seem to have a problem with, I suppose, TD script. My action button to use this script is greyed, and i cannot use it. I stricltly followed the guide, first imported Rematch string and team, then imported the TD string, there is the button, with "A" on it - every fight, but it is grey and non-usable. Could other addons interact badly with Rematch and TD? I also use PetTracker and Pet Journal Enhanced. Thank you for any advice.

I know they have Rematch working in Shadowlands Beta, but anyone know if they are going to work on this working too? Need testers? I am willing to help, but it's not working at all at the moment.

How do you submit a TD script for an already published team?

Most people just post them in the comments, where they may get tested and taken up by the creator or a curator.

Is there any way to set it up so that the team notes window opens automatically for a team when you select them

Yes, there is an option in the settings that will automatically open the team notes...maybe under teams...? I can't remember exactly where but i changed it to open my notes during battle

Hello. Thank you so much for all of the information gathered here. I'm grateful ! I'm having an issue copying /pasting the Rematch String. I've been doing this for years so I'm familiar with the process...however, when I try to paste it simply says "placeholder" the string does not paste into the import box. Am I doing something wrong ?

Actually, it looks like it's working fine for me. Can you please link me the exact strategy where this is happening? (If it's multiple ones, one is fine). And can you please tell me if you use a Mac or a PC - and which browser you use?

First of all, I want to thank you for an awesome addon....I love it... My issue, the last 2 days my auto button is grayed out when I try to use on any teams I have saved and used and also with any new ones that I try to make....I have deleted and reinstalled the addon, reset my ui and so am hoping someone might have a suggestion? Thank you

"Once you've imported the Rematch script and have the team saved, you need to also import the TD script (steps 4 and 5 on this page) to allow for automation. The Rematch string imports the team, and the TD script does the automation."

Above is quoted from a response to the same question... I am just responding for folks like me who came to this comment section from a search on Google.

First and foremost, Thanks for this amazing addon.
Recently (past 2 days) I've been facing an issue I never encounter before.
While exporting a team with the rematch string button, then importing it in Rematch, the team that appears in Rematch is different from the one selected.
Did reinstall Rematch, both TdPet Battle, removed all WTF data prior to that, reset browser (Opera, Chrome...), and still facing same problem.
Not sure if one of other addon did broke something or a wow patch did a mess ?

Anyone else facing this ?

Ex. Importing Pearlhusk Crawler first strat
Baa'l 1 2 *
Mechanical Pandaren * * 1
Chrominius * 1 2

become

Baa'l 1 2 * Correct
Rebuilt Mechanical Spider * * 1 Error
Chrominius * 1 2 Correct

It seems it bugs when there is substitute pet available in the strat.
Also when using right / left arrow to visualize the substitute, no pet picture changing


String imported is :
Pearlhusk Crawler:4N92:120029G:00102G5:0120140:N:Strategy added by SpruceOPnQuick strat. Chrominius is used as insurance. nnTurn 1: Murder the InnocentnTurn 2: ShadowflamenTurn 3: ShadowflamenTurn 4: ShadowflamenTurn 5: Murder the InnocentnTurn 6: ShadowflamenTurn 7: PassnBring in your Mechanical Pandaren DragonlingnTurn 1: Exploden

No idea how to check what pets ( I suppose) are behind 4N92:120029G:00102G5:0120140:N (edited)

It's 2020 now and I'm suffering from the same problem. I deviate between a couple different computers and when I exported all my teams, none of the scripts came with them.

Update: I did the same thing again the next day and most of the scripts transferred but not all of them. Strange... (edited)

Your Rematch settings and teams are saved in a file rematch.lua in

World of Warcraft_retail_WTFAccount999999999#1SavedVariables

where "9999999999" will be a different number for you.

If your WoW crashes, it can overwrite your settings files. However, there is usually a file Rematch.lua.bak saved as a backup in that directory, just in case. Renaming that to Rematch.lua will bring your teams back, if it hasn't been overwritten by you saving over it after the crash.

However, you can also export your Teams from Rematch to a plain-text file and mail that to yourself. You can then Import some or all of those again if necessary. Open Rematch, open your Teams tab, and right-click on the Teams button on the top right-hand side. Backup All teams will create a single file of everything for you to copy.

I would not use tdScript myself, so I don't know about that, but I suspect it has a similarly named file in the same directoy. (edited)

Easiest way is to just copy/back up your WTF folder periodically. This serves multiple purposes at once.

Just FYI; it looks like the link to "Writing TD Scripts" is broken (at least for me). It's missing the colon after the https. The following link works:
