Item Slots?

I forgot what it was called, but in Trinity there was a button type for "item slot" in which I could have buttons for things like my trinkets so I could use them, but it would auto update to whatever trinkets I had currently equipped. Macaroon doesn't seem to have this ability, or am I just not seeing it somewhere? I've checked both the FAQ and the Official Thread, but either it's not mentioned or I'm not searching for the right terms.

Couple other things I forgot, any "hidden" bars seem to reset to the middle of the screen and don't hold their position. This is annoying because any nealy created bars always appear right under it.

Also, the strata for the minimap button is too low. My WIM and Bejeweled icons cover up the right click menu. Any chance for there to be a fubar/titan plugin? Minimap get's so clustered as it is, moreso now with the new clock and calendar buttons.

Not a bug so much as a lack of support on Blizzard's side for custom macro buttons. I am working on work-arounds.

Fantastic mod , i used trinity 2 before but this is extra special, cheers

small point though, hunter aspects buttons. When you select an aspect the icon changes so you can tell its active which is perfect but when you zone it resets to the off state and i keep clicking it think i have no aspect on, which then removes the aspect. Minor niggle but hopefully very easy to fix

@shdwolf271 - this is an issue I am looking into. No idea why the minimap button is misbehaving for some people.
Thanks for looking into this , I really dont want to use another bar program. I tried Bartender 4 last night and it was just plain clumbsy to try and use.

You mentioned that with Macaroon Profile manager being in Red on the addon screen indicates it is a load on command issue.

Could this be my problem with the mini map not showing up and not being able to enter the /mac config mode ?

Enter bar edit more, where you can set the bar target you can edit that text and enter anything you want.

Remember that if you are using macro buttons, macros take their targeting from the macro code, not from external sources. Buttons set to type "action" will, however, use that bar target as their target.

Re: Heavy Memory hits

I can't think why all this stuff is interconnected?

Thanks!

Also - I noticed the Trinity Cast Bar does not remove the default in game cast bar. Did I miss an option somewhere? And can we get a resizeable bar?
1) I am working on performance issues. See my wall of text for a more complete answer. Using memory is not an issue, it is creating garbage that is. Performance tweaks are in the works.

2) The default Blizz cast bar is completely unregistered by MacaroonCB. I do know from past experience that some addons will re-enable it. AG unitframes was one of them

Thanks for the fast Reply Maul. Don't have CPU profiling on, but I'll disable Performance Fu and see if that fixes the problem.

I have two questions on how to configure Macaroon. 1. When i select bind edit i still cannot bind spells from my spell book. What do I need to do here to bind them directly? 2. When using the class bars (druid shape changes for example) I am having difficulty with the bindings when i switch stances. My key bindings in bear form stay the same on a particular button position when i change to cat form. It does give me the option of rebinding the cat form button, but the bear form binding displays still (although a window pops up showing both bindings after I reset it for the cat form). In trinity, the bear form binding switched to the cat form binding smoothly.

Again great job with these mods and sorry for not finding it if you have already addressed these elsewhere.

1) There is a bind button in the spell book. Currently all the binding modes are independent of each other.

2) Are you wanting different bindings for say the first button in both bear and cat? Want to make sure I understand

The great wall of answers!

@Sathrah - Not sure what to tell you then

@nima.m - I am not sure what is going on with this one key in particular, or the others mentioned. The only thing I can think of is that the Blizzard binding API is somehow unable to process that key. If anyone wants to point me to something that can emulate non-English keyboards on an English keyboard machine without having to add the language to Windows, that would be great

@H0PE - Thanks for the info. I may remember this, but if you could make a bug report to remind me to check it out, that would be great

@sp000n - The profile system is still in development, its current state is just for conveince to load characters up, nothing fancy yet.

@seebs - Thanks for the reports, if you would make a bug report out of then it sould be much appreciated

@Troox - Not yet. I am aware of the issue people are having with the fonts. As far as the tooltip, I will check it out...but I don't recall setting the scale for it anywhere.

@JAM8588, Dreadan - There is some weirdness people are reporting about the minimap button using Macaroon by itself. I am looking into it.

@NavyFC - Working on it!

@saltorio - no you haven't! say it again! now!

@Shareel - Simply "MacaroonButton#". You can get the # from binding mode.

@phyltr - It's like this - you ever watch Monk? Well, I am not like that...except for posts! I have a compulsion to answer!

@budjb - In the works. Posting it in the features thread is a good way to remind me that someone is looking for it now

@Chräcker - go Chräcker!

@Demascus - Actually there are some performance issues I am working on. You are the first to report anything though. One thing you must make sure is that you do not have script profiling on anywhere (like from PerformaceFu). I have noticed that just having script profiling on with Macaroon causes some siginifcant FPS issues. Like with Trinity, I will put Macaroon together so it works first, then tweak permormance. It should be noted that macro buttons require a bit of processing, which is why at some point Blizzard moved the macro interpreter out of lua and into the wow executable itself. C++ is much faster than lua.

Add the others and I get past the character screen and WoW hangs. I've tried adding them individually to find the culprit but it works fine then. Wiping my WTF folder works as well.

Are there any common conflicts out there or other mod behaviors that would trigger this?

Loved Trinity and I like the improvements in Macaroon.

[Edit] Found it! MinimapButtonframe is the culprit. It didn't play well with the Trinity button either, but it didn't keep WoW from loading.
It's something between Macaroon, MinimapButtonframe, and Fubar. If you have all three on it will lock on loading.

Frame Rate Issues while using Macaroon

Just wondering if anyone else is having Frame Rate issues with Macaroon on Live. Been working great on Beta for me. I'd generally get around 60-70 FPS in raids, now I'm rocking bottoming with 5 FPS, if that. If there's anything I can do to fix this that would be great, but at the moment it's almost hard to do anything while in a raid. =/
