Just a bit of advice, ANYONE USING ANY KIND OF MOD OR ADDON SHOULD REGULARLY BACK UP THE ENTIRE WTF FILE just in case something like this happens.



Installing the .30 update did nothing, installing the patch did, but I had to put the Macaroon WTF files back in. Fortunately, I had a backup WTF file. Follow the instructions and advice below, I don't think there's any reason to re-write any of it here.

Good Luck!

No phyltr as far as we know nothing is being worked on.

is that being worked on? i mean at least knowing someone is looking into it and that Macaroon isn't dead in the water would be a huge relief.

Any time there is a patch, copy your Interface and WTF folders to a safe backup location. Do this BEFORE you log in. If anything goes wrong (you lose your macros, some addon's preferences get bollixed - whatever) you will be able to easily restore what you lost.

It's a good idea to perform a backup regularly, even absent a recent patch.

Well, I wasn't able to restore my bars because I didn't know about the bug when i logged in,
it saved over everything. thank got I created a template the last time i had problems
after i got done recreating everything.

Word of warning. _-= BACKUP =-_

Save a template of your profile with the basics of how you like things for EACH character.
you can refill the other slots if/when the time comes. but you will save yourself a lot of pain,
if not hours of work recreating your macros and layout.

(Hell I even took a screenshot of my bars in each stance just in case i have to rebuild with another addon)

I made the mistake up installing the new file that someone posted on this site. Apparently it's the PTR patch that wipes everything out I believe. Not smart I think. I've tried all of the solutions posted including restoring the Macaroon.lua.bak file from last October and replacing the current .lua file but that hasn't worked either. Is there any other file I can restore or am I screwed and having to start from scratch? The bar creation seems to work. I also do have saved profiles but restoring them does nothing.

Ouch

look for Macaroon.lua.bak inside your characters SavedVariables folder, not the global one. hopefully it is larger than 5kb, then rename it Macaroon.lua (overwriting). if both the reg and the backup are 5kb, then you probably lost it. you can also try restoring your saved profile, some said it has worked some said it didn't. me, i didn't even need to go that route. GL hope you don't have to redo it all, that's always a pain.

Uploading a new version on patch day that you haven't even tested on the PTR in the last two weeks == fail, IMO. Makes me want to switch to Bartender4.

But I won't, because people make mistakes, Macaroon is awesome, and I'm fairly loyal to things I like. Hopefully Maul will learn from this and not let it happen again.

And what I said was not directed at Maul, but the nincompoop who did the fix.

OK, to fix Macaroon, replace your "Macaroon_Bars.lua" file in your Macaroon folder with this patched file:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...uild3.0.8.html
Then log into wow, go to the macaroon options and reload any saved profile.
Tada!

P.S. Maul, my sister is a good looking virgin that I wish to give to you as a gift to do with as you please.... on the contingency that you update the best bar mod in the world.
