I would believe that the toon getting logged out before the world appears on your screen makes macaroon load incompletely and then gets logged out before it has managed to populate the alternative states buttons with the macros. But as it is logging out is saves the variables of the buttons thus making them blank.

As long as you have saved your bars in a profile with button data you should be able to reload that profile and go on playing when you manage to get logged in properly.

I realize there are a number of bugs that are still being worked out, and I imagine this might be on the list of "known problems". Just the same, I wanted to make a small post about it.

I am a huge fan of Macaroon and have been since the beginning. I hope it never goes away.
I've been hearing about similar problems please do check the bug list and see if there is a bug report on it, if not create one and if there is put in your comments and thoughts. You never know, it might help.

I believe this could be a coding look over.
like instead of changing bar on Vanish == true or Improved Vanish == true it only changes on Vanish == true
Depending on how Maul's written it it should be a piece of cake to fix. Do report it in the bug section though.

also is it possible to have the aura watch highlight work on target or mouse over? if i have my buffs on there i want to know if its on somebody else not me lol... when i have them as target anyway when no target me it should be


thanks
Hey potatoes!
To make a Macaroon Bar mimic the Blizzard Main Action Bar completely I believe you either have to make a custom bar with the right macro conditionals or make a workhorse bar relation in Macaroon.
I'm not that good at the custom states configuration but I could probably help you set up a workhorse bar relation.

About the "Autohide:Modkey"
Maul have the code for it and is going to implement the ability to do what I set up for you in 3.x However since Maul is going over the code for autohide and alpha (he has 2 different codes for that atm) he didn't want to put it in there just yet until he sort of merged the codes together.
I could however pretty simply update my fan version until that time. Done.

I thought the Aura watch text and highlight worked on target.
I believe I've seen it work for me at least:
Have target selected: show buff timer and highlight for my buffs on target.
No target selected: show buff timer and highlights for my buffs on me.

Not sure if mouse over ever have worked but I have never needed it. besides.. making it work I believe will require more CPU since it'd require to rescan all variables for a button on mouse over change which happens almost all the time.

Re: flyout macro question

Originally posted by leo81202
is it possible to creat a flyout macro with spells? What I'm trying to do is make a flyout macro for my shields but all I get is just water shield. This is what I have


/flyout spell+:"Water Shield,Earth Shield,Lightning Shield":linear:right:left:6:click


EDIT: I figured it out, for each spell you have to put the ~ before it also the + isn't needed.
Just a tip, You don't need to put the full name of each spell either.
/flyout spell:shield:linear:right:left:6:click

is enough to make a flyout of every spell you got with shield in its name. if there is any shield you don't want in that flyout for example Earth Shield you just add !earth to the keys. the ! tells the flyout to not include any spell with "earth" in it.



@ Shakari and leo81202
About the Blizzad macro being dragged to a Macaroon Macro Button.

Macaroon have always converted its button from macro state to an actionID state when dragging a Blizzard macro onto it. It does not copy the Blizzard macro into a Macaroon Macro Button. This might be something Maul will implement in the future but as I've understood it's a bit tricky with the coding and fixing other things that should work gets priority to a new feature.

Why it have seemed to have functioned before and are messing up now could however be a bug. I theorize that when you drag a Blizzard macro onto a Macaroon Macro Button Macaroon converts the button to an actionID button as always, but.. it converts it to the ID# last edited in Macaroon so first you drag a Blizzard Macro to an Macaroon ActionID Button then another to a Macaroon Macro Button. Try doing it the other way around if you wish to try my theory. Otherwise, if you're planning on dragging a Blizzard Macro to a Macaroon Button, make sure it's an ActionID button first.

Either my Google-fu is failing, or there hasn't been a post on this since 4.0 and Macaroon changed around, but I wanted to change the position of the keybind text.

Right now, it's on the far upper right of the button, and I would like it to be elsewhere. Yes, I'm using ButtonFacade, but even when I turned it off, the keybind text was in the same location.

And as to your edit yes I could agree except I have never had a problem like this with macaroon since its release its never been a problem dragging macro's from blizzards book. I assumed macaroon just converted the macro being dragged into a macaroon style macro. seem with this bug though its changing it to an action ID.
Most of the time it will convert it to a macro sometimes it won't. I also find that it will sometimes convert spells to macros.

I've run into your issue before and thats how I fixed it.

Which is the same ID as the dismount macro button.

So I end up with 2 dismount buttons and nothing else. If I reset one back to macro state and drag the focus macro on to it again it reverts back to Action state ID 2 again.

is this any clearer. Basically I have 2 buttons that will not change from action ID 2 status.

I drag the /focus macro to a seperate bar set all set to "macro" status.

this then changes both buttons to "action ID 2" ... so it shows 2 of the same macro either the dismount one or the focus one. Macaroon will not save the seperate states. and repeatedly sets them both to Action ID 2, and the two buttons will not work in macro state and keep reverting to "action ID 2".
its not always with action ID 2 per se but can be with any action id number.
Is there any fix or work around for this problem?
