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.

I think the correct magic is
[stance:2]
Unless Blizz changed it to this patch.

Why your custom states don't save is probably cause you forgot to pres TAB or ESC.. just as with the macro edit box.

On the topic of text on buttons, where is the option to hide macro text? Macros created with the Blizzard system and dragged out on to the bars will show the name of the macro on the bars. I am sure this use to be a global option to turn off and there is nothing in the Blizzard options. Really need this option back in if it is gone please.
I created a Macaroon macro then on the General Tab I unchecked Macro Text and this removed all of the blizz macro texts as well. This might be a bug, but worked for me ^^

Issue with Button Facade and Macaroon.

Everything was working fine, all bars set up, all the buttons modified by Button Facade nicely. Logged out to ensure all my settings were saved (incase of a server crash / random disconnect).

Logged back in and none of the Button Facades are there. Infact, when i go to Interface > Addons > Button Facade > Addons .... Macaroon is no longer listed in the Button Facade submenu.


Is this a problem with Button Facade or Macaroon? I tried to relog and shut wow down completely, still no change. I am going to reinstall Button Facade to see if that changes anything, will update.


EDIT: Deleted Button Facade and all the saved variables to go with it. Reinstalled with latest alpha, no luck. Reinstalled with latest release of Button Facade, no luck. It seems something from Macaroon is blocking Button Facade from hooking.

No idea what caused this, as it worked fine all yesterday and most of today. No changes were made, simply logged out and back in to find Button Facade no longer working

EDIT 2: Going into the macaroon profiles and loading from there (i had saved Mac Profiles about 30 min earlier), Button Facade is now working again since restoring from my last safed profile.

EDIT 3: I did respec my character before logging out to save my settings. No idea if its related or not, just wanted to be thorough, as that was the only thing that actually changed between all my log outs where Button Facade and Macaroon played nice.

Had an interesting oddity happen. one of my buttons was set to be a Action button, and had First Aid on it, but I noticed it had an up arrow like a flyout. so I clicked it to see the flyout and it had a list of trinkets?! every action I put in that space ended up with the same flyout. So I entered button edit mode and changed the button to a macro button and there was a flyout script attached to it! (for trinkets) I exited button edit and drug the button off the bar, then re entered button end to change it back to an action and all is well now.


Oh, and I also looked at making a Totem Flyout for quick access to all Shaman totems in one place and half of them didn't show icons. So for now I deleted it.

Any chance we could get a feature to reposition action button tool tips if a flyout covers the tip location? I already use Tipsy to move my tips away from my bars, in to the bottom right just above and right of my bars. (I have kind of an L shape of buttons along the bottom and up the right side.) (been some time since I tested things without it!! maybe I will)

Before you click it, however, at the bottom of those options and above the macro edit box are some radio buttons to select if you want to edit the single current button or the whole bar. If you want to turn it off for the whole bar, make sure you select it.

I am re-thinking these options and on how to make them seem more accessible
This was a little tricky at first but really not that difficult to work out and once you know it's easy, like most things.

I know you must be extremely busy but a well written updated user guide I think would help for little things like this instead of rewriting the code. I know I would really like reading about all the new features that are in macaroon that I can't work out yet.

I am sure this use to be a global option to turn off and there is nothing in the Blizzard options. Really need this option back in if it is gone please.

Finally not as big an issue but I remember reading quite a while back that you were looking in to making the key binding text scalable. I see that you have added colours now but no scale yet?

Keep up the awesome work Maul on the best bar addon ever, I recommend it to everyone and just laugh at others that use that other one that belongs in a PUB.

Ah, thanks. Was looking for some kind of information on it, but there was none. Not for the Macaroon flyout nor for the one by blizz itself.

Is the blizzard-one working the same way? Or what are the differences?


Oh, there "might" still be a problem, because

/flyout item:Ruhestein:...

did not match (which it should, if I'm not mistaken). Any ideas about that? Small bug within localisation code?

Uhm... Ok, at least in the newest version it does work...

Anyway, Maul, don't focus on editing the cooldown timers, since you got OmniCC working! If you want to, release a version with the most recent fixes, then take a break so you don't go insane. Haha.
currently using 40000.1.1

i went in and toggled them all on then off manually again, and this did repair my problem double viability problem. thanks! Now they should match up as maul had said.



Maul,
Glad to be a help... we all owe you big time.

This problem affects the aura watch cooldowns, which are not the same as regular. I confirmed the issue and have it fixed

Waaaaay back when, during Trinity Bars, I resisted adding these and told people to use OmniCC or another addon that added text timers to buttons. Many told me they wanted it native to Trinity and I have since ported it to Macaroon. The reason for the small apparent "lag" in the timers is that Macaroon buttons are already doing A LOT every frame draw compared to standard action bar buttons, so there is a small throttle on the updates. Without this throttle, CPU usage tends to get high.

Macaroon's text timers are there to be there. They do not aspire to be anything like OmniCC, which I actually do recommend and have recommended in the past.

You can see that the button highlights are not matching the BF skin now. Just updated today and was working fine before 40000.1.1 ... that is to say, the first one you put out after 4.0.1 landed, did not have this problem.

Love the addon, cant live without it, Wife is patiently waiting for the totem bar so she can play her shaman again.
Which skin is this? A hex from ButtonFacade Trinity or another skin pack?

i have preferences for OmniCC. The timers differ between Macaroon's and OmniCC's by around 1/2 of a second. Not sure why, but OmniCC seems to "feel" more accurate (it ticks off faster).
1st has already been fixed for the next update.

2nd has been fixed thanks to your report. Thanks
