Hopefully this is also the cause for the slowness of the mod during editing of buttons. Loading the option menu takes me about 45 seconds (where I didn't notice any slowness problems pre update of the 3.1 preview).

Using a different comp, I was able to move myself out of Dalarian, and successfully logged my main computer in the quite town of Darkshire.

From a programmer side, a "safe mode" that has a pop-up of "Load yes/no" may allow us slow players get in, and then turn on the buttons.

Edit: I've also done Lightbright's 3, 4, 5.
9) I am at about 140 buttons (half keyboard with ctrl/shift, a pet bar, posession bar, and about 100 mouse click buttons)
6 sounds interesting. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the great work as always.

Ran into a problem w/ the last release. When selecting Macro Master there is no scrollbar to scroll through the list of macros for your characters.
the scroll arrows display, the but the bar is missing & u can't scroll through the list.

Update: ALL Scrollbars are missing. Even the ones for the icon listing. I'm uninstalling & rolling back to the last preview release, for now.

Blizzard at some point during my absence change an event that Macaroon relied upon in a major way for loading its data. This is most likely the cause of the disconnect issue. I have made changes to use another event and so far things are loading fine. This change will either be in the next preview update or for the 3.1 release version if the patch hits sooner.

updated to prepatch2, note that the quote below is still the same with the addition to hopping on the quest dragon at wyrmrest also brings up the dragon abilities on the pet bar now.

however, vehicle works perfectly at the tourney, not triggering vehicle abilities on the pet bar, or confusing my possess bar upon dismount. everything also works as expected on the aces high dragon, and the hodir's spear quest.

Originally posted by sindalee
shadow priest on the ptr, went down to wyrmrest temple. i hadn't yet configured a vehicle bar before i got there.

first made a vehicle bar on it's own, then hopped on the dragon quest there. bar works great, but it was still also bringing up my posess bar with everything but the aim and leave buttons.

went down to the gnolls and tested mind control. this only brought up my possess bar as it should. note the possess bar also dissapeared when the pet was dismissed.

scrapped the stand alone vehicle bar, and added that to my possess bar. this bar only has those functions and keybinds for only in those states. the same bindings are locked on a hidden bar with my normal spells.

hopped back on the dragon and the vehicle bar comes up fine. dismount, and the leave/aim buttons dissapear, but the pet abilities stay. hitting one of the keybinds make the pet ability dissapear, but of course doesn't trigger my normal spell.

open mac edit, and it's showing my possess bar, it's not swapping back to the blank "normal".

back to the dragon, bar comes up. open mac edit and it's showing my vehicle bar there. dismount, leave/aims dissapear. open mac edit and it's the possess bar.

also tacked this into someone's bug report

First i have to say, thanks for a rally great addon.

One thing i'd like to see, would be an implementation of Select. Thats a really usefull addon to sav some space, but unfortunately not compatible to Macaroon. Mayb if you could incorporat your own /select command to use within Macaroon. Would be great.

I am aware of the d/c issue in areas of high player population as it happens to me too. As of right now, I have no idea why it happens It always seems to be related to the density of other players around you, so I am trying to figure out what Macaroon is doing that may be affected by other players being present.

Re: Kicked

Things that have correlated around getting kicked at login: long load times (perhaps dc from inactive "convo" with server?), Macros that use trinkets, lots of long macros

v: 30100.1
Older comp, XP Pro SP3
I am experiencing the same thing and have done some testing on the matter:

1) Only happens to me in high-lag areas such as major cities, entrance to naxx, etc.
2) I can verify that it's not the speed of the computer that matters. This problem persists over multiple computers.
3) Have tried to login with an addon-heavy setup.
4) Have tried to login with only Macaroon.
5) As soon as I disable Macaroon I'm able to log in.
6) It is possible to login without Macaroon, then use an addon like ACP to enable it and /reloadui, however the loading screen still hangs as if it's taking a very long time on Macaroon.
7) I have tested this with a level 1 banking toon in multiple cities with light addon setup.
8) I have tested this with a level 80 raiding toon with both heavy and light raiding addon setups.
9) My base profile for all toons includes around 160 buttons (I have my entire qwerty board mirrored with shift and control, plus possession and pet bars). I have tested with this setup as well as with only a 12 button (1-0, plus - and =) setup.
10) On the banking toon I have only one short macaroon macro and my hearthstone, rest of the buttons are blank.
11) Every time I tested, I was using Macaroon, Macaroon Spell & Button Binding, Macaroon Loot Windows, Macaroon Profile Manager, and Macaroon Bags & Menu Bars. As such, I can't say if one or all of these modules is causing the problem. I don't use XP & rep bars or the Cast Bars modules.

I'm hoping some of this testing can help in finding and eliminating the problem. I should note that I don't have any issues once I am online, it's just when logging in that it d/c's me. Let me know if you need me to test anything else and I'll be happy to help!

EDIT: Also wanted to say, that regardless of this issue, Mac is the best bar addon out there and thanks for creating it. I consider it one of my essential addons. Thanks for your amazing work on this Maul!

Good now Maul has some more info when he sees your comment. Though "PickupPetAction" errors would make me think you made a pet bar/pet button and tried to place a non-pet action on it.

And remember you cannot put Blizzard Macros onto Macaroon Macro buttons. Either you copy paste the Blizzard macro commands to a macaroon macro button or you make the macaroon button an action ID button and places the blizzard macro on it.

New bars with spells popping up as you increase the button count happen 'cos you made a bar, put some spells on it then removed the bar. The spells that you managed to put on that, now deleted bar, is stored in memory in the saved buttons.. and as you make a new bar the buttons from the saved buttons will appear on the new bar.

I'd guess it's just as you thought. too slow comp to handle the addon. which slows your reply speed to server down, server thinks you're not responding and sets you as logged off.

When I create a new bar and add buttons I start seeing icons from a previously created bar and I cant drag spells onto that.
What am I doing wrong?
What version of Macaroon are you using?
Does the bar you create have buttons when you make(button count+) the buttons on that bar, or are the buttons of that bar empty as you create them?
Have you loaded a saved setting from another character?
Is the buttons in a macro button state or in an action button state?
what do you mean by locking the spell down?
Could you elaborate a little more.
