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.

Actually, you can. Just click the current Action ID # (listed to the right of the slider/scroll bar), and then use Backspace or Delete to remove it and type in the number you want. Hit enter to save the change.

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.

If by "screwed" you mean that you will have to set up your bars manually because you didn't take the time to backup your WTF folder or create a profile, then yes. However, by using the procedures that other people have posted, this addon DOES WORK. For those that have not taken the time to find the fix or were confused by the previous 7 pages of comments that claim that this mod is dead, I present you with the Macaroon Official Thread (I didn't write it, but it has the fix). The first post, big red text, contains the link to the fix that works. Follow the directions and you will have a working version of Macaroon.

If you didn't take the time to make a backup of your WTF folder or a backup profile, it is also possible to retrieve those "destroyed" user settings if you only logged in and out once.

You should find this file: World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\Server\<Character Name>\SavedVariables\Macaroon.lua.bak

BACK UP the main Macaroon.lua file, then rename Macaroon.lua.bak to Macaroon.lua and, voila, you have restored your Macaroon preferences to what they were previously. Note this only works if you have only logged out once since the patch (WoW backs up your preferences every time you log out I believe). You will need to do this for every character that you logged in/out of since the patch.

Finally, for future reference, ALWAYS make backups before applying fixes for a new patch. It's simple to do and saves you lots of headaches. Even for unannounced patches like this latest one, you have to download it and accept the ToS before you can log in again, so it can't sneak up on you.

/end of soapbox

EDIT: Fixed a typo.

Re: Amusing Overreactions

Jalandar, if it had only been 3 days that this has been going on, I would unconditionally agree with you. However, 28.1 rc was posted on 11/4/2008 and it still had problems when Maul then went MIA. Thus it has been over 2 months leading up to this rather than the 3 days you count. I would say that the change in communication pattern of Maul who used to reply to posts within hours has certainly raised cause for concern for Macaroon. Many of us are struggling with problems that remain unresolved because of Maul's disappearance since 28.1rc. That feels like lack of support and a fading future to me. I know that I, personally, can't play effectively with a mod that may fail for unexpected reasons at any given time with no hope for support or a timely fix.

Amusing Overreactions

I am choosing to be amused by the overreactions of a few posters here.

How else should we view those who, within 3 days of a new patch (and with no announcement of a release date for the patch, which is normal), are ready to declare this project abandoned because the author hasn't made an appearance?

For all any of you know, Maul could be on vacation, or have any of a number of other things that are vastly more important in his real life than fixing this right away.

I am a HUGE fan of this mod, I depend on it for my UI as well, but one thing you MUST remember if you are going to the fully customized UI route, is that patches will often break them, and if you aren't able to fix the mods yourself, you should expect to have to wait for the authors to get around to fixing them.

To his credit, Maul has previously been one of the best about doing that in a quick fashion, and yet, only 3 days have passed and people are already calling for someone to take over the project.

Some patience, and calm, is in order. The fix posted by others is working, and so there is no reason to panic. Fix your files the way it was described, and I'm sure Maul will be back to make more permanent fixes soon.

Clearly something extremely serious has happened to or surrounding him. The way I read the latest post seems that the 'patch' has been written by someone entirely different and that the last code Maul worked on was the .28rc version. It would be helpful if the person who wrote the patch, claiming to be a friend of Maul's, would provide a bit more in terms of future expectations beyond simply saying that Maul is now MIA if he is indeed a personal friend and in the 'know'. That Maul is MIA was already clear.

It seems that the time has come for someone else with LUA experience to take over and maintain this mod if it is to continue. For that to happen ethically, Maul or his representative should release the code for adoption. If Maul is not willing or able to do that, then, unfortunately, the package should be withdrawn from availability since Maul has copyrighted sections of the MOD and adopting it without permission is illegal.

Good luck to you Maul wherever you are and our wishes for your happy return.
Amen!

I am... for the moment, forced to use Bartender 4 because macaroon refuses to work on some of my toons. (Most problems are caused by the macaroon xtras, which don't have a fix.)

I really hope Maul would fix this addon soon, it really is far better than any other action bar mod!
