Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

Re: Re: General Ion Problem

I've had similar issues in the distant past, I eventually just reset everything in Ion back to default and it's been fine for months (or years, not sure how recently I had that issue). I used it as an opportunity to start over and revamp how I had things configured.

So, occasionally one of my bars will change, it will loose some or all of its buttons. When I go to the config screen number of buttons will be set to whatever is left, and can't be increased. It can be decreased, and will go negative, and sometimes when you go all the way negative you can then get it back to where is should be, generally 12 for me.

Any one have a clue what's going on?

Thank you.

All you should need to do is get into the macro editor mode and select the bar that you want the abilities on. The macro window should have a list of the various states available to the bar, select the appropriate state and the bar should change to reflect how it is in that state. From there you should be able to just drag the abilities you want to it and then exit from the macro editor state.

Yes the "dual spec" option is really just for the content of the bar, not for the bar itself. If you want the bar to not be present in a specific spec, just keep the dual spec option on, and in the other specs just remove all buttons and don't have it show grid and it will "dissapear", even though it is still there.
Will that sometimes be in the way of clicking in that area even if it is "hidden"? I assume it is supposed to click-through in a hidden state, but some addons I've used will still occasionally be in the way when I try to click on the environment under that hidden element.
That might possibly be the case, but you can always set the strata to something low so that objects will stay on top of it instead of falling behind it

1. How to make a menu bar?

2. How to make a raid marker flyout?

3. How to make a multiple spell flyout without getting a lot of unintended extras? Actually, this seems to revolve around "spell:g'hanir" on a druid trying to get the artifact ability. Other spells work as expected.

4. How to make a flyout with food only or with drink only?

5. How to make a flyout with health pots or mana pots only?

I may have others as I work through my toons setting them up.
I can't answer anything about your flyout questions, though I know a lot of work went into flyouts in the latest version. As for a menubar, make sure you have the 4 ion addon modules, bag bar, menu bar, pet bar, and status bars, and then in the main "bar editor window" just go new bar -> menu bar
Thanks. I actually found that before I even posted this, but forgot to edit it out. I appreciate your time to answer it, regardless.

I did encounter another question. I made a bar intended for only one spec and made sure "dual spec" is de-selected. Regardless, it shows on all three specs. I have attempted to toggle that and reloadui many times, but the bar continues to show on all three specs.
1. Menu bars are contained in a separate optional addon you can get it here
2. Raid Marker Flyouts can not be done with ION at this time
3. To get the exact spells for flyouts use the spell id that you can find using wowheads entry for the spell.If you are looking to use the Essence if Ghanir ability its id is 208253
4. I believe that there is no way to separate food & drink, as it uses the game subtype which combines both food & drink
5. I think that you could use item:Healing Potion and item:Mana Potion for the 2 flyouts

As for the dual spec bar, if you want it to change between specs you need to select "Dual Spec". If you don't the bar will be persistent across a spec change.
Thank you for the response. It really is appreciated that you and Maul sacrifice your personal and gaming time to make our experience better.

I will put a suggestion into the feature request forum. You might be able to steal features from the addon "Autobar". Hopefully, you wouldn't have to re-invent the wheel and might be able to take directly from the addon as it really doesn't seem to be maintained anymore. They have devised some way to separate food into multiple categories. The main three I remember are:
Health
Mana
Health+buff

They have also devised a raid marker flyout, somehow. What if...

Would it be possible to make a macro for each marker, then build a flyout or select that would call the macros?

That addon has some interesting concepts. The pre-built stuff works fairly well. The customization is muy broken, however. Also, hopefully, they are not using description scanning, since I noted in this thread that can lead to lag, and is why you have avoided using that.

General Ion Problem

I've been using Ion for a long time, back to Trinity. When is started playing WoW again a couple years ago I ran into a problem with Ion, I ignored it because I could work around it, and I suspect it's a matter of clearing junk or cache somewhere.

So, occasionally one of my bars will change, it will loose some or all of its buttons. When I go to the config screen number of buttons will be set to whatever is left, and can't be increased. It can be decreased, and will go negative, and sometimes when you go all the way negative you can then get it back to where is should be, generally 12 for me.

Any one have a clue what's going on?

Thank you.

Item sets

Hello!

The icons for item sets are apparently not working entirely, as can be seen below.



Additionally, there is some print messages showing in the chat when attempting to edit these (through Ion's right-click "edit button" edit-menu).

Otherwise they seem to work as they should.

edit: content of each macro is as follows:

/equipset <nameofset>

i.e.

/equipset AoE

Weird bug when pushing character button

My girlfriends computer repeatedly gets this issue each and every time she hits the character button on the menubar. It happens on her hunter and her demonhunter, and deleting cache/WTF and starting from scratch did not solve the problem. Oddly enough, on my computer none of my toons experience this bug.

Code:
Message: [string "IonCharacterButton:OnMouseUp"]:6: attempt to call field 'UpdateMicroButtons' (a nil value)
Time: 05/18/17 16:05:22
Count: 1
Stack: [string "*:OnMouseUp"]:6: in function <[string "*:OnMouseUp"]:1>

Locals: self = IonCharacterButton {
 0 = <userdata>
 tooltipText = "Character Info (C)"
 normaltexture = IonCharacterButtonNormalTexture {
 }
 newbieText = "Information about your character, including equipment, combat statistics, and reputation."
 icontexture = <unnamed> {
 }
 Flash = IonCharacterButtonFlash {
 }
}
button = "LeftButton"
upInside = true
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "attempt to call field 'UpdateMicroButtons' (a nil value)"
**edit: I was able to use a console command to suppress lua warnings, and the error went away. I wonder if I did that on my machine and just forgot I had. Either way, it doesn't seem to break anything, it's just an annoyance
