The features I see now is almost everything needed. Keep it simple so it is easier to keep it stable.
Some work has to be done with the configuration of it ofc but it feels allot easier to configure then trinitybars. I dont see any reason for continuing trinitybars. If possible maybe a script to convert the trinity button would be nice for many people I guess.

If you lack time to keep them updated maybe get someone to assist?
I am working on a "converter" addon. Hopefully I will have a testable version ready before the WotLK pre-patch hits the live servers. And yup, the goal is to keep it simple and low-maint, which so far it is for me

long time trinity user and after just a brief setting up of macaroon i'm already in love with it.

are you going to enable profile/templates? most of my chars start out with the same 3 base bars and hidden side bar and being able to load those then build the char up from there would save a ton of time.

very little testing on the mod before i had to go, but i did notice with buff cd/duration enabled and using renew on myself that they are at first out of synch, but by the end of the duration synch up and end at the same time.

testing the tundra mount, and the same for any vehicle mode you enter, blizz puts an "exit vehicle" button next (or connected) to where the default stance bar would be. i've tried creating a stance bar to see if this would recreate that function but it does not.

again /cheer! thanks for all your work over the years.

Ah, ok... I thought it was a macaroon thing, I didn't think to try a macro for the pet ability in the blizzard UI. Sorry for any confusion.

Deilian,

The issue you're experiencing might have nothing to do with Macaroon, but rather a bug with the current WotLK beta and the patch undergoing testing on the PTR.

For example, when the following macro is used, in either a Blizzard action button or a Macaroon macro button...
#showtooltip
/cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][] Intervene
...the system responds with "Target too close" regardless of the actual range if the mouseover is valid. It casts the spell properly if there is no valid mouseover but there is a valid target (i.e. the default target/spell behavior).

Similarly, when the following macro is used, in either a Blizzard action button or a Macaroon macro button...
#showtooltip
/cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][] Roar of Sacrifice
...the system responds with "Invalid target" if the mouseover is valid. It casts the spell properly if there is no valid mouseover but there is a valid target (again, it works with the default target/spell behavior).

I ran into the same problem while doing the quest Wooly Justice in Zul'Drak. In this quest, you have to ride a mammoth vehicle and trample a bunch of trolls. The mammoth has two abilities:

(1) charge, which basically works like a warrior's charge ability
(2) trample, which does AoE damage to trolls

First I tried the quest with Macaroon running. I bound charge to the J key and trample to the K key. The (2) trample ability worked just fine whether I clicked the button, pressed K, or used the default vehicle keybinding. The (1) charge ability worked if I pressed the blizzard default vehicle keybinding, but if I either clicked on the macaroon button or pressed J (the macaroon keybinding for the ability), the ability failed because "target is too close", even when I was far enough away from the target.

I logged out and disabled macaroon to try it with the blizzard vehicle UI. With the blizzard UI, clicking on the buttons worked just fine. The blizzard vehicle UI is really ugly, I don't know why they make everything so big.

Basically, it seems like it's not just the macaroon keybindings because clicking on the macaroon buttons gives the same error.

Using the blizzard UI, even just for a few minutes, also reminded me how awesome Macaroon (and Trinity2) is. Thanks again for working on this great addon.

well i am a hunter btw and for my petbar, my pet skills arent bound by macaroon so i would say the bindings i set up are for the vehicle ui button

*edit*
also its weird because i can hop on a wintergrasp cannon and hit 1 and shoot a fireball but if i wanted to hop on a dragon and use flamebreath with the same 1 it would not work

I am just trying to find out if it is the Macaroon keybindings that are appearing to not behave or if it is the fact that the Vehicle UI appears to be bound but really isn't since Macaroon is overriding those bindings.

the bindings work.. its just that when it casts .. its tries to cast from player instead of whatever you are using..

it shows it pretty clearly in the combatlog when you have show everything enabled

for example on dragon its

when i use 1 or 2 or click it says "Player's Flame Breath failed.(Invalid target)"
where as if you use control 1,2 it says "Wyrmrest Defender begins casting Flame Breath."

or on

troll berserker

using 4 or 5 would say "Player's Stun failed. (Invalid target)"
where as using control 4 or 5 would say "Troll bersker begins casting stun"

I have my macaroon pet bar bound to Ctrl-1 through Ctrl-0, just like the default pet bindings, so it is hard to tell whether the bindings for those buttons are working (even if the macaroon bindings for those buttons are broken, the default blizzard bindings would still work I assume). But clicking on those pet buttons definitely does not work, and instead causes an "invalid target" message even against a valid target.

I guess this could be a blizzard bug rather than a macaroon problem, but the fact that the keybindings for those buttons work even when clicking on them does not work makes me think it might be something in Macaroon. zendi's problem also makes it seem like it's macaroon; in his case, the custom macaroon bindings for the pet bar did not work, but the standard Ctrl+1-0 buttons did.

I wish I could test it out with macaroon disabled and see if the same problem exists with the default blizzard pet bar, but I already finished the quest... maybe I'll try out the dragonblight quest Zendi was talking about and see how that works.

I hate pets! This is why I play a mage and a priest instead of a hunter or warlock or whatever.

I also noticed that when I put a Conjured Mana Emerald on a macro button, it doesn't display the number of charges left in the Emerald on the button. It works fine on an action button, but not a macro button.
For this issue, read the main Macaroon addon info page
