Re: Thanks, Maul; Mac issues

Originally posted by kittykatmax
First, Maul, I am sad to hear you are leaving WoW. Your hard work on Macaroon has been greatly appreciated. I hope someone who knows lua takes up this addon, as I do not want to go back to Bartender after using Macaroon!

Now for my problem, if anyone has a suggestion. I play WoW on both a PC and a Mac. I have a fully custom UI based on Crystal UI (also abandoned, the author left for Aion), and I use identical Addon/WTF settings on both operating systems. My UI was great on both machines, and everything is fine on the PC, but since I started using the updated Macaroon, my actionbars on the mac intermittently turn into ? boxes and even lose the button facade settings. Sometimes reloading or logging out/logging in fixes it, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it fixes itself without my doing anything. And, when I log on it can be fine, then suddenly "forget" its settings. This is happening to all of my characters on that computer.

Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or if anyone has suggestions aside from rolling back to the older version of Macaroon?

Thanks to anyone who can help me, and best of luck to you Maul!
i have a mac and it is doing the same stuff yours is.
for now i have solved it by making profiles.

in your menu select profile when your ui looks normal write a name in profiles and check all 4 boxes and then do a save. next time your ui show only ? open your profile , select that toons name and do a load.

this will take you only 10 sec to have your ui fixed after you done the inital save of that profile.

Not sure if this is what you meant, but if you scroll down to the comments you'll see that this author is looking for someone to take over his addon. Not being a coder myself I dunno if this is a "basic" project or not but it seems fairly simple in use.

I had some issues which manifested as a usage error from SaveBindings(), which was being called as SaveBindings(GetCurrentBindings()) or something much to that effect; just changed it to "2" (player-specific bindings) and it was fine. Probably not the right solution, but it fixed my occasional madness on login.

so, if anyone can suggest a few more basic projects to experiment with, ( hopefully in order of least advanced to most advanced, ) then that should do the trick, but in case no one can suggest such projects to learn from, i will try googleing up a site where i can find such projects. if i find a good site, i'll link it here.

For some reason i lost my minimap on my priest, i found out that its macaroon that is the problem, or rather the SavedVariables of macaroon.

Any idea why this happens ?


I deleted the Lau files in SavedVariables, and used Load Profile, and the minimap disaperes right away.

Just got dual spec for my hunter, and same thing happend to it there, minimap disapered right away

Do you need the lau file to look at?

I am really sad to see Maul go. This is the most important addon that i have & has made wow so much more enjoyable. I understand his choice to leave (thought about it myself several times) & hope he gets the fun spark back.

With the latest release, i noticed that certain sounds do not play anymore. Particularly the dismount sounds & the initial mounting start sound. I have tracked it to something in the main Macaroon module. Anyone else notice this or have an idea how to correct it?

anseloth, i see lots of posts from u. Are u considering taking on this project?

You put a lot of work into these addons for us. Thank you.

I wish you and yours the best of everything.

p.s. I am not skilled at lua, but I may have to learn it I don't know that I can stand the WoW default bar.
two books Maul himself recommended for learning lua are the following:

World of Warcraft Programming: A Guide and Reference for Creating WoW Addons

Programming in Lua

the first book is the primary book of the two, but getting both books is still what you probably want to do.

if you want to get copies of those books, i'd suggest http://wowprogramming.com/store.

that site has links to various sites where you can buy those books, and other ones too.

one other thing, there is a good third book to get called World of Warcraft Programming" 2009 edition, problem is, the release date for it, last i heard, was sometime in October. to be fair, i was told that into back in late April, so the release date may have changed again since then. lets just hope it changed for the better, right?

this is probably a silly question, but did you save the changes to your macaroon profile you use for your active talent spec?

sorry, i just thought it would be better to ask and make sure you've done that than to not ask and just assume.

even with no add-ons at all the 3.3 PTR is terribly buggy. i suggest you wait a week till blizzard releases the first patch.
(serveral problems i had yesterday with no add-ons enabled: had to try up tp 5 times everytime i wanted to log in, people who did a certain amount of quests in icecrown can't see the new 5-man instance, swapping gear using the blizzard equipment manager causes disconnects, couldn't set-up the normal blizzard cause after every disconnect all my setting where gone again.) i know that alot of above stuff probably has nothing to do with macaroon but just to indicate that i wouldn't rush things when it comes to the 3.3 PTR
