EDIT2: 30100.2.5 has fixed the switching profiles issue, thank you Maul.

Hi Maul,

Is there any switching profiles bug in 30100.2.4? I'm confused now.

The first time, I saved a profile "war_prot_set1" with my warrior primary spec, ok. then change to secondary spec, and saved with another name "war_arms_set1". it's no problem to auto switch profiles many times between specs at that time (Already filled the bottom field with the primary spec profile : war_prot_set1 and second spec profile : war_arms_set1 )

After 1 hour I'm in primary spec (war_prot_set1), I moved a bar location and some buttons also key bindings, then save it, change to arms spec, it loads my original (war_arms_set) profile with previous non-modified bar layout and buttons. Ok, I check the profile "war_prot_set1" <Bar Layout> + <Buttons Layout> of primary spec, press load, then save it in secondary spec profile "war_arms_set1". Ok, sweet done.

But when I change back to my primary spec, weird things happen, some old buttons appears on bar include the old binding keys. so I reload the primary spec profile (war_prot_set1), good, those old buttons disappear, and now it is correct buttons set with my new modified bar/button layout. Again, I changed to Arms spec, too bad, those buttons appear again, I reload my "war_arms_set1" profile, yes, those old buttons/key bindings disappear, and there is my correct buttons set in Arms spec (war_arms_set1) profile.

But after that, when I change my spec, I have to load my spec profile manually, it seems can't automaticlly switch profiles anymore. because those old buttons always appear when I changed to another spec. Any idea can fix it ?

EDIT: Ok, I found you upload an update version 30100.2.5 , I'll try it and report if it fixed or not.

The most easy way to prevent such wow shutdowns is not to click the game window when it is on any loading screen. That way you want have the milkwhite overlay on the window.

Re: States....

Originally posted by bwh
Hi,

How can I achieve the following setup?

I'm a druid and have setup a main bar with many custom states such as:
[nostance,nocombat];[nostance,combat];[stance:1,combat];[stance:1,nocombat];...

I really like to have the same button setup in combat vs noncombat states, but nocombat state bar should be invisible. So while having no visible buttons in nocombat and nostance, "1" should cast moonfire and entering combat should make the bar visible.

The hidden checkbox hides the entire bar, regardless of the state.

What I think I could do is create 2 bars, one of them always hidden (for nocombat states) and has no buttons while in combat... And the other bar has no buttons for nocombat states. But this seems a bit unnecessary overhaul.

Is there any clever way to do this? Im sorry if this has been mentioned somewhere, I failed to find it...
status update: After spending a few hours, I realized that the "custom state" thing works like this, if you have 4 states named
stateA
stateB
stateC
stateD

and add a 5th state called stateX between B and C
stateA
stateB
stateX
stateC
stateD
it ends up moving all buttons in C to X and all buttons in D to C. So if you already have buttons setup, add a new state to the end of the custom state list.

Furthermore, I've ran into hard-to-reproduce bugs while playing with it, like "having a bar without any buttons (according to button count) but has ghost buttons that work somehow"

At the end I realized that the profile file got 32k lines long and 800kb for just my druid char, I went back to normal stance checkbox

Im using Vista.

Edit: I redid my ui for like the 5th time and i logged out and logged back in and again a bar was missing and even a couple of my spells had switched places. Some spells are in there right location but they have another spells icon covering them. My keybindings dont save either. I keybound CoH to "C" and when i logged in CoH had stolen the keybind to Guardian Spirit which is "T". GS was competely gone because that entire bar disappeared

You are either using Vista or Windows7, right? That white screen is "application not responding" for these windows versions. Your game was terminated by windows and probably your settings got corrupted. I really do not know what you can do. I am trying to setup my whole bars because of a similar reason :s

I thought Macaroon (and Trinity) had this ability at one time, but it doesn't seem to anymore. If I bind a key to a button on the bar, it is bound to that button in any stance, therefore forcing me to move my spells in an order that is not what I want for clicking. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a solution to this?
While in binding mode left-click the button to lock it's binding

I have identified the issue some are having with dual specs. Fix inc.

As for possess/vehicle bars, best thing to do is scrap all the possess/vehicle bars you have and re-make them from scratch. The best option to chose for a bar with the possess/vehicle abilities is "Control Bar" (I actually had a chance to run Ulduar and check things out) A bar with "Control Bar" checked will respond just as it should.

If you want the extra specific buttons for possess/vehicle, make a NEW bar for that sole purpose. This bar will *attempt* to determine if you are in a possess or vehicle state and display the correct buttons.

I highly suggest no longer using possess/vehicle states for those states anymore where you need to use actual abilities. I know right now it is confusing, the way Blizzard put it all together is confusing/flaky. I may remove possess/vehicle as options and throw them into Xtras as a special bar.

I had similar trouble auto switching profiles until I eliminated the use of spaces. This did happen during the recent flurry of Maul's upgrades, so it may be a red herring.
Good though, but no all of my profile names are single word.

Sadly vehicle bars still aren't working for my druid. It's kinda ironic that the 30100.2.x fixes to vehicles broke them for me when the earlier versions had been working fine.

Tested on Sandbox tiger and flame leviathan fight.

Edit, meant to add - Button Facade is working fine again, but some button bars are still pushing lower that they should when I first load up. Clicking the macaroon button resets them to proper position so it's not a big deal.

Getting the ? on talented spells when switching to alternate spec. When I switch back the ? are gone. I didn't notice at first what it was because of how I overlap talented spells to the same bar position per spec (replace CoH with penance, GS with Pain supression, etc.) but what I believe is happening is that it's actually not switching the bars when spec swapping. I will try removing the spaces from the profile names as per a previous poster and give an update in an hour or so.

Possession bars are no longer switching properly as of the latest version. Noticed on Flame Leviathan, confirmed with Wyrmrest daily. I had to manually switch to possession by clicking the minimap icon, then clicking the bar until it toggled to the proper buttons. Would be troublesome in some places since you cannot do this in combat.

This was working fine earlier in the week with 30100.2. Unsure if this is related to the control option, as I really didn't understand that particular change.

interaction between profiles

I mentioned this issue a couple days ago, when a lot of other issues were being fixed.

If I delete a button from one profile, it is deleted from all profiles for that character. I know you have said this should not happen, but it does.

The problem occurs when I try to clean up the "?" icons from alternate profiles.

Version: 30100.2.4
