I didn't download any of the updates from Macaroon/Macaroon x-tras when the patch came out. I just downloaded the one file from the Macaroon 3.0.8 patch (Bars.lua or something) and overrid it in my macaroon folder. And everything works fine for me.

Macaroon and MacaroonXtras are separate addons! My way worked with both for me.

Originally posted by Solarria
All arguments about fixes aside, here's what I'm faced with: Macaroon is not functioning. ...

...But it is not working. I can get the empty bars, provided I don't try to load content. But not all of the bars are back. I don't have the bag bar or the menu bar. Honestly, I was using those. I have not rebuilt bars; without the menu and bag bars available, I see no point in trying to rebuild by custom interface of around 100 buttons, about 40 of which were macros. It's simply too much work for a product that is not stable.
Macaroon is till in development I believe. so ofc it's not working 100%. but i think it's pretty close.

Bag bar and menu bar as well as cast bar and XP/REP bars are not part of Macaroon.. it's the MacaroonXtras.. which you still have to update separately from Macaroon.
I've noticed the 30000.12 version of MacaroonXtras doesn't seem to be downloadable from wowinterface site. I updated both my Macaroon and MacaroonXtras with wowmatrix.. still against Mauls advice...

This time i tried installing Macaroon from here but wowmatrix didn't recognize the update. So i let it update as well.
Wowmatrix did find some 30000.12 version of MacaroonXtras(might just claim it is while its not actually) somewhere, I do not know where. After update of both addons I changed the string in the Macaroon_Bars.lua, updated wow and logged in.
I got all my bars including Bags, Menu, Castbar & XP/REP bars where they used to be. And all my spells were in the right Macaroon bars at the right place on the screen the second I logged in, no need to get them from saved profile.

I haven't had time to test possession or pet bars yet but I'd bet they'll work just fine

Phanx made a slight error for anyone who have a notepad with line numbers, it's actually at the line 1061 rather than 1601.

Had no issues here with the "fix"

I knew that Macaroon was having issues, so I tried Dominos and Bartender 4 when the patch came out... I tried both of them for a day or so and decided I didn't like either mod's limitations.

So I came back, downloaded the newest "updated" version (I'm still not sure what's actually been updated other than the toc?), applied the "fix" by manually editing the line myself (figured the patch is just changing one line, I may as well just do it instead of downloading another file). I also downloaded the new Macaroon extra and updated what I needed.

FYI, I do not use the XP bar or the roll frame or whatever... the only thing I get from Macaroon extra is the bag and menu bar, I think.

Everything came back and worked just as well as they did before. I did Heroic Oculus, possession bar is working just fine. I raided different 25-man instances, and everything seems to be working just fine there as well. I haven't ran into a situation with pets yet, so I don't know if that's working correctly.

All in all, everything seems to be fine after applying the patch. Reading some of the problems that people are having even with the patch... I really don't understand what's going on. I wish I could be more help, but I just haven't seen any problems at all on my side.

Granted, my usage for Macaroon is pretty "light". The reason why I still prefer Macaroon over other bar mods is mostly because of the presentation. For example:
  • Bartender and Dominos are both limited to 10 bars of 12 buttons each.
  • This limitation is not flexible. Meaning, if you have 9 bars, you can't distribute the buttons from bar 10 to the other bars. The maximum number of buttons each bar can have is always 12, no matter what.
  • Similarly, if you want to have 20 bars of one button each, you can't do it. You can only have 10 bars no matter what.
  • Forms and stances in the default UI are actually "swapping" one bar for another. Since Bartender & Dominos just repurpose the default UI buttons, they are limited by this as well. For example, Rogue stealth form is using Bar 7 to replace Bar 1. You can't get around this limitation. So the more forms you have (Warrior & Druids, for example), the less usable bar you really have.
  • Arrangements and button ID's are not reassignable. For example, my main bar is a 12 button bar with 2 rows. Blizzard's UI always arrange the button ID so that the top row starts with 1, and the bottom row starts with 7. However, I actually use and keybind them in reverse. I consider the bottom row to be my first primary actions, so they're bound 1~6, while the top row is ALT+1~6. Problem is, when the bar swaps to the Possess bar, Blizzard replaces the top row buttons because that's where they think your bar starts. So now the primary possess bar actions are ALT+1~6 as well. With Macaroon, I can edit the button ID's and reassign them manually, so it will replace the lower row of buttons instead of the top row. This sort of flexibility just isn't available in any other bar mod.

What I don't use Macaroon for, are complex target specific spell macros, or any modifier-bound macro execution. So I don't know if those type of things will cause issue even with the fix.

That's what I'd do if I used this addon (which I'd love to someday, but haven't dared to =) )
No.

This kind of post doesn't help anyone understand how to help you fix your problem. You MUST say EXACTLY what you did; 'I tried everything' doesn't cut it.

Not picking on you, just trying to make it easier to help you and others who post similarly.

I had the same thing happen. I just opened up the Macarron Main Menu and enabled Blizzard Main Bar... everything worked great after that. When I was done I just went back into the main menu and deactivated Blizzard Main Bar.

Yup - this advice (directly below) worked.

I didn't even need to do the whole copying .lua files - just new patch, with the linked fixed .lua bars file, and I was done. Logged in, all hunky-dory. All paged bars on my druid are working. For now.....
Actually the procedure i described below will work whether you have been logged in or not since the WTF files are overwritten.

Last night I was doing the "Thrusting Hordir's Spear" quest and the same issue.

I haven't been in strand to see if things are the same there. I'll report back...when I can get in there.

How i got everything working (requires WTF and Macaroon backups)

Luckily i had a recent backup of WTF and all addons and this is how i got everything back to working 100% in a few steps without reinstalling wow or anything drastic like that.

1. Update latest wow patch
2. Replace old backup macaroon addon files
3. Embed the PTR fix either by relacing the string or replacing the single file from the fix download (has been posted so many times here so I trust you can find the fix)
4. Replace all old WTF macaroon files in
4.1. WTF\Account\Accountname\SavedVariables\all macaroon files
4.2. WTF\Account\Accountname\SavedVariables\Realm\Charactername\SavedVariables\all macaroon files
5. Repeat step 4.2 for each character you have
6. Log in and cheer with hands in the air

Lastly i will just give my huge respect to Maul for this amazing mod. I would quit playing wow if there were no mod like it. The flexibility of bar handling, keybinding and long macro's is just so creamy. Intense shoulder patting to you Maul, thanks for your great effort

All arguments about fixes aside, here's what I'm faced with: Macaroon is not functioning.

I concede that I do a couple of things with my macro management that are not optimal: I do not remember to backup, I use a service to remind me and pull updates. However, I know that I am, by far, not alone in this.

I've downloaded the new update and installed it automatically and manually, I've run the PTR patch and I've done it again by hand combing though the .lua file. I've started it with a clean WTF, I've started with the old settings. I've loaded the profile I have saved with different options clicked. In all, I've spent about 4 hours fooling with this.

But it is not working. I can get the empty bars, provided I don't try to load content. But not all of the bars are back. I don't have the bag bar or the menu bar. Honestly, I was using those. I have not rebuilt bars; without the menu and bag bars available, I see no point in trying to rebuild by custom interface of around 100 buttons, about 40 of which were macros. It's simply too much work for a product that is not stable.

I really loved the macro building ability of Macaroon, but had had problems with the pet bar (and know many people that abandoned Macaroon over those), and more problems with situations like Drak'Theron Keep's boss that makes you into a skeleton. Previous to the current issues, I had to disable Macaroon for that fight. Vehicles were a nightmare and they are plentiful in Northrend.

Until Macaroon can be updated with a single download, profiles to be loaded, and with the "additional" buttons I will also abandon this product. I understand that this places a certain burden on the developer, but it is a burden and challenge that other developers meet.

I must take a moment to thank you for the product and the vision that you have created. I have enjoyed it's use for many hours. All I'm asking for is the same functionality that was seen before the patch.
