Bug in all versions incl. 30100.1.5

Hey Maul, there seems to be a bug in the latest versions.

Sometimes, when I click around in the Options dialog (like switching the self-cast options around), I suddenly get a terrible lag for I would say 5 seconds. Then, a lot, if not all, auto-generated macros (those created from dragging from the book into the macroslots) are broken up (you only see question marks).
I found out, that all auto-macros had two additional brackets added to the end of each like this:

/cast [target=player,mod:shift][] Rasche Heilung()()
(yes its german)

See the two extra brackets? If I delete 'em, everything is fine again.

Any idea how to fix this? I found out, this happens everytime I log in to WoW the first time, and into my character and then opening the macaroon options. But it happens also randomly like described above, when changing options, etc.

The only way to go around editing every button again is reloading the profile in the options dialogue.

I should also say i use no features of Macaroon except to create a small extra bar with a few buttons to help me manage short cooldowns (under 10 seconds). So no Mac's key binds, macroes etc.

I am mentioning this to help you narrow down the issue.

And it is happening on any character, even the level 1 bank that has never had anything set up.

I guess what he meant with 'double blizzard bar' is



The top shot shows a ghostly duplicate just under the main Blizzard bar. It is visible because i have bottom bar on titan panel so UI is pushed up (and reveals what would otherwise be hidden). The main bar is on page 4 and duplicate shows abilities that are normally on page 4 as well. Keybinds work. Just a small aesthetical nuisance.

However, in the lower shot you can see that a duplicate of page 1 on the main Blizzard bar is empty. Problem with this is that key binds seem to somehow be related to this duplicate bar (which is empty on page 1) and hence don't work. You have to actually click on the blizzards main bar to use ability.

If I disable Blizzard's main bar in Macaroon menu, then I can blindly hit key binds and they do activate abilities from page 1 (even though both real and duplicate are then removed from UI at that time)

I was going to add something similar. The problem is that currently Macaroon is switching the 2 saved profiles, junking any changes you've made to the current one and rolling you back to a previous one. I don't know that you could save a profile properly with the way Macaroon is currently doing it. The only thing I could come up with was either to hook a routine to the save button in profiles to reload the ui which would force a save and would be kind of awkward, or for macaroon to use 2 internal scratch profiles which it maintains the way it used to.

Also, macaroon is failing to load my profile saved list fairly often too. Haven't tracked down why, it may just be Dalaran busyness lagging things up. Anyone else having this problem?
I don't see why Maul couldn't just include a Save Profile A command before Load Profile B in the switch talent specs event function. I have terrible lag when loading profiles like everyone else here, but hey, that's a small price indeed for the functionality this mod gives us! But saving a profile appears to take an infinitesimally small amount of time, so I don't think we'd even notice the additional step. Maul, any comments on the feasibility / priority of doing this?

I did some more testing on the pet/possess/vehicle bars with Version 30100.1.4. I only just noticed that there is a "vehicle" settings. Is this new, or was I blind for months?

In any case I can say the following:
- pet bar works nicely with the pet again
- vehicle bar works perfectly with the tournament mount in icecrown, though both the vehicle *and* pet bar show up. Not a problem, though
- haven't tested any situations where the possess bar would be shown

However, I noticed that whenever I configure something, my whole client freezes for up to 10 seconds (e.g. adding a button to a bar, turning config mode on/off etc).

Also, logging in with chars in Dalaran freezes on login and then disconnects me.

I downloaded 30100.1.5 tonight and with this, the problem is not limited to Dalaran but happens in other places as well. I have now reverted to 30100.1.4 and could login at the tournament site again.

Don't know what the problem is. I tried deleting cache/wtb but that makes no difference.

Hope you find what causes this, as it is currently the only drawback to a near perfect bar addon.
In order to get your pet bar to no longer show vehicle stuff, left click on it while in bar edit mode to change it from No Pet to Pet.

Last time I rebuilt my bars (yesterday) I turned all the dual spec options off in Macaroon, but still returned to WoW this morning to find it doing the disconnect thing again.

Are there any config files I can send, or debugging I can turn on?
The saved vars for that druid where he could not log in.

Loading up a users saved vars is the best tool I have to identify issues I do not experience myself. When in doubt, email me your settings

cooldown text = always on

i have the latest version, and noticed that the cooldown text cannot be turned off, and in some cases it is wrong. The timer on the CD for Every Man For Himself is 2 minutes longer than the actual cooldown.

Text Cooldown timers is off
Text buff/debuff timers is off
buff/debuff highlighting is off

and i still see yellow CD timers on buttons. I use OmniCC and would prefer to use that universally, but cannot seem to turn off the CD display on my macaroon bars.

ps: the timer for the hearth stone is incorrect as well.

clarification edit: becuase Im using OmniCC, I have TWO SETS of cooldown texts on my macaroon buttons. Just wanted to clear that up. Im trying to turn OFF the macaroon texts but it doesnt seem to work.

When I went to the trainer and payed for dual spec, about 90% of my buttons all turned into [?] - many of them having nothing to do whatsoever with spec abilities - like mount macros and trade skill shortcuts, etc.

Dont know if you addressed this or not - posted it a few days back and cant find my post.

I eventually had to compeltely redo my setup from scratch - for some reason, half of my buttons were set to the same action # after purchasing dual spec, so it took me about a full day to figure out what buttons were 'mirroring' each other and reset everything.

Im actually afraid to try to USE the other spec now.

For those of you having disconnect problems, try deleting your WoW cache -

Delete files in -

World of Warcraft\Cache\WDB\enUS

The last part will depend on your locale.

Let me know if that helps or not. So far I am unable to find any reason why this would be happening, but from reading about other having the same issue with other addons or even without, this seems to be the first step to solve the issue.

Chräcker from germany, hoping for the posesbar and more hoping, that Maul do not work to much and get again a break down. Macaroon is not the most important thing of the world, perhaps only of WoW ;-)
