How is it dead when it works for so many of us?

I'm sure Maul will come back sooner or later to continue his little project.

As many has stated Maul has always been chatty and told us if he's taking a break or whatever. He isn't the type of person to just give up on a mod and not telling anybody(read us) about it. Just look at Trinity. He had lots of trouble with it and he didn't abandon it. And now that he finally did, at a very appropriate time; WotLK expansion, he had a new idea that is very similar only apparently much easier for him to maintain.

I'm positive we haven't seen the last of either Maul or Macaroon(should that be neither/nor). Something might have happened to Maul but I for one reads his friend uploading that update(even if it didn't help much) as a sign that Maul will come back to us. Just a matter of time.

even if i did rebuild... are the vehicle bar/buttons working 100% now?

i got my ui working in the default ui again (by using ALL per character and per account macros for one char) and it is nice to not have to exit and reenter vehicles many times before the buttons appear...

If you were to do this with a normal macro, to change from one page of your main default Blizzard action bar to another, it would look like this:

#showtooltip
/cast Blood Presence
/changeactionbar 1

#showtooltip
/cast Frost Presence
/changeactionbar 2

#showtooltip
/cast Unholy Presence
/changeactionbar 3

Propogate IDs only works if you want to renumber all the IDs and they're in the right direction. If you have a bar that uses an arc like I do it reverses the numbers (ie: button 1 is on the right and button 12 is on the left). If you don't renumber the button IDs going to a vanilla interface "flips" all the buttons.

I also run a single large bar at the bottom of the screen that is half macro and half action buttons. So I renumber them manually. *shrugs* It's no big deal now that there is an obvious solution. It takes all of five seconds to turn off/on interface scaling and then it's easy to make the changes.

As far as this goes, DK "Presences" do not function the same as Warrior or Druid stances, they function more like Paladin "Auras" thus there is no EASY way of doing what you want.

I believe I recall someone explaining a detailed way of using macro script commands to switch pre-configured bars upon pressing a button that was associated with a SpellID, e.g. I believe you can set the Macaroon macro button you have for say, Frost Presence, to ALSO trigger a scripted event in another bar to behave like a stance switch, but you would have to set it all up manually.

Macaroon auto switches stances by default only in cases when the default blizzard UI would have done so as well, e.g. for Warrior stances and Druid forms, simply because that is the innate action of the Blizzard API. Blizzard did not feel the need to allow that functionality by default for Death Knights.

Hate to say it but that flat out does not work for me.

I'm seriously considering unistalling the entire game and deleting all folders involved but if i reload everything, patch everything, install all addons and then I cant create new bars from macaroon, I will blow my top, lol.

PS - I am running Win Vista 64bit home ed.

Sounds like the string edit didn't take for some reason.

First thing to do is make sure you edited the correct file - depending on where WoW is installed, Vista may relocate your addons for you. Search your hard drive for MACAROON_BARS.LUA and make the change to all copies that it finds. Also, triple check your edits to make sure you didn't accidentally mistype something or get a parenthesis in the wrong place, etc..

If that does not fix it for you, then follow Carnacki's instructions for a clean setup, although I would advise moving the files somewhere else instead of deleting them.

I got my toons working again. Unfortunately I loaded up WoW on my main account before doing any of the fixes and broke my actionbars, and I didn't save a profile either so I had to start from scratch On my second account I did the fixes first and everything "just works". So that is good.

How I got my main account working;

1. Downloaded the macaroon 30000.30 file from here.
2. Do the edit that's been mentioned numerous times - go into \interface\addons\macaroon\macaroon_bars.lua and edit line 1061 so it looks like:
local handler = CreateFrame("Frame", "MacaroonHandler"..bar:GetID(), UIParent, "SecureHandlerStateTemplate")
3. Go into WTF\Account\*mytoonname*\savedvariables\ and delete the macaroon .lua and .bak files.
4. Go into WTF\Account\*mytoonname*\*myrealmname*\*mytoonname*\savedvariables\ and delete the macaroon .lua and .bak files.
5. Start WoW and create macaroon bars from scratch.

NOTE: That will completely wipe your layouts so only do it if you are having no luck other ways.

While it's been really painful recreating actionbars again (I moved server a month ago and had to recreate them then too) it had a couple benefits. When I redid them I tidied up my layout and dumped a lot of non-essential buttons. I also found a fix for a bug that has been bugging me (excuse the pun) for months...

Occasionally when assigning a buttonID it refused to display them all. eg: I'd be trying to assign buttonID 7 but when dragging the scrollbar it would jump from 6 to 8. I realised it's to do with interface scaling. If you have this problem turn off interface scaling and you should be able to assign any buttonID. Then you can scale the interface again.

On a side note: It'd be nice if we could just type the buttonID we want instead of having to drag a scroll bar that gets screwed up when he interface scales

It certainly isn't the end of the world, though I empathize with your loss.

If I weren't an alt-a-holic, I'm not sure if I'd have a backup template either.

That said, this might help someone: I run Bartender4 for my bag bar, mini menu, and pet bar. I use Macaroon for my action bars.

The only thing not working currently (with the patch properly applied and either the bars rebuilt, or a template restored) is the BoP looting windows. If BT4 has those as well, we can limp along just fine. I haven't checked yet.
