I'm wondering if this Macaroon! has the ability to recognize the up and down functions of a key-press like the Macaroon I use to use. What I need is an addon that lets you set a button to have a hotkey as the DOWN press of the #1 button and another button with the hotkey as the UP release of the #1 button. This would allow you to cast one macro with the Down push of the button and a 2nd macro with the up release of the button. This use to be possible with an older version of Macaroon back in 2009 (yes i've been gone from WoW for some time now).

Statement: WoW sees the down function and the up function of a key-press as 2 different actions.

Re: Ion Alpha

Newdles, i lost too my saves when game crashed but i dont understand how can u to not have a backup of your WTF, interface and cache folder. I make a backup every month.

Nice fi Maul ill improve this for Mists, i hope especially the extraction button like for Ultraxion to be easy accesible, because i heard in Pandaria ill be more extrabuttons. I failed many raids at begin because cant deal with these special skills from raids and dungeons or even bg - the canon skills etc seems to be little bugged.
I ill suport when i can the addon with money, unfortunatelly only few euro, but i hope all users ill add few, so can be a large total amount..

Ion Alpha

The new version of Macaroon (named Ion) is now in alpha testing on the MoP beta.

If you wish to have access to the google group for the alpha, please email me at trinityui@live.com.

Please note that due to changes in Mists, the Ion Alpha will not work on the live version of the game.

Thanks!

I encountered a new, major issue today. I can no longer save a Macaroon profile. When I save it, it acts like it saved, but upon loading it, it loads what the profile used to be, completely reverting all my changes. This is a stopping issue. I can no longer play properly with Macaroon.

Edit: Saving to a new profile doesn't work either. Loading that loads what the profile used to be too.

Edit 2: This seems to happen with dual spec bars (which I don't know how to disable) and "Enable profile switching upon spec change" (which is what I want to use exclusively). If I reload UI after changing specs, it temporarily works for the spec I'm in.

Edit 3: I opened MacaroonProfiles.lua (the settings file), searched for "dual", and found many "["dualSpec"] = true" lines. I replaced all of those with "["dualSpec"] = false" and now Macaroon works properly. I wish there was some way to edit this in the bar editor. Currently, it's not shown at all in the bar editor.

The skill for Ultraxion is an extra action bar ability if I remember right. In Macaroon you'd have to set the state of a bar to Extra Action Button for it to show up. It's been a long time since i used Macaroon but I'm fairly certain that's how I had to do it.

This addon made my gaming a pleasure, where i can help little the author and who is exactly the author? Maul?
I've answered this question before and will quote what I said then, and then I'll even try to expand on it...

If you're talking about the Ultraxion "heroic will" and Madness "dream" buttons, I don't think there is any inherent support for it in Macaroon. However, there are a couple of ways to deal with this.

One way is to create a macro and place it on your action bar (there will NOT be an image, however). The macro is as follows:

Code:
/click ExtraActionButton1
The other method is to go to the keybinds menu and bind the "Extra Action Button" to a key.

Both methods have the disadvantage that you pretty much trust that it is there. With the macro there will be no image on the button, nor will there be a cooldown display. However, I've been raiding using the macro method since the Dragon Soul raid began and it's worked well for me.
To reiterate, there is NO built in means of handling the ExtraActionButton1 method within Macaroon. This means that if you are using Macaroon and are raiding you will need to either do the macro as explained above or go into the game's keybinds and bind that action to a key on your keyboard. As far as I've been able to determine, there is no means of discovering the button via states, so no fancy methods to get the button to work. You really do have to go all caveman on it.

Also, keep in mind that if you use the macro method there will NOT be an image on the button. This means that there is no way of knowing whether or not the ability it provides is off cooldown at any particular time. You basically have to trust in your knowledge of the mechanics of the fight and the ability it self. If you use the keybind method, well, the same is true to an even greater degree.

It is also very important to know that the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion makes extensive use of the ExtraActionButton1 mechanic in dungeons and in general questing. I personally do not know if Macaroon will be going forward, either by Maul/Dwargh or via a fan update, so keep this in mind while preparing for the expansion.

If anyone else knows more about getting to ExtraActionButton1 via states, I would love to hear about it as it would simplify my own bar setup a bit.

edit - oh and much love to Maul for this addon, it has made my adventures in WoW much more tolerable.. and much love to Dwargh for his wonderful work in helping us users make sense of the things that confuse us, lol.

WTF!? All my Macaroon profiles are gone! Years and years of perfected profiles were wiped away! I thought this bug was fixed in 2009.

Edit: Luckily, I had deleted the .lua.bak settings files for all my addon settings a couple days ago, so it made new ones and just now, I renamed the new MacaroonProfiles.lua.bak file it made that day to MacaroonProfiles.lua, restoring my years of perfected profiles. I'm SO lucky to have had a backup. If I hadn't, it would have been completely devastating. Probably 50+ hours of time over the course of the past few years have gone into editing those profiles with extreme macros and pages (especially for warrior and druid) for all my characters of all classes.

Replacement options?

Does anyone know of a replacement to Macaroon that offers the ability to create bars with custom amount of buttons? (I don't need the macro feature specifically)


I loved Macaroon but lately it has become so buggy that I have to stop what I am doing and fix my bars every few days because the ongoing problems with the addon.

Really a great addon, just too buggy for me currently.

---snip---

However, as this is basically stance dependent, maybe it'll work.

Give me a few days to look into this and see if I can't verify one way or another about what I'm thinking.
Ahh, I didn't know about Lock and Priority. I found both and figured out a decent solution. I actually have the Alt mods built into my macros, I don't use separate pages. So I just show the powers 1-4 and have priority 1-4 on the small bar. This way I can see if the things "under" the nomod powers are available, or what the timer on them is. Works well enough!

Again, great mod. I got rid of a handful of other mods. Actually, if you'd allow me to bind mod+mousebutton then I could even get rid of Clique. I would just lock some buttons into the stored buttons page and then bind say alt+leftmousebutton and that would be exactly what clique does for me.

Edit: another thing to note. Sometimes timers are a little wonky in more complex macros.

For example, if I have a trinket/tiger's fury/berserk macro: "#show Berserk /cast Tiger's Fury /cast Berserk /cast 13" I'd like it to show the timer for Berserk's cooldown since it's the longer one, but druids have to use Tiger's Fury first or it gets locked during berserk. #show makes it show the icon, but I can't see the cooldown timer. Also some of the extended tooltips get a bit wonky on longer castsequences and conditionals. These are extremely nit picky things.
Nice to see you found a solution to the bind issue. Maul is apparently cooking up an entirely new code-base for a new bar mod, but I would guess that for all practical purposes it'll be much like Macaroon. There are many limitations to working within a system like what Blizz actually allows to happen within the addon arena.

As for your timer issues, Macaroon isn't acting wonky, it's a limitation of the system. As far as I'm aware, as much of a neophyte as I am to Lua and the WoW addon api, it isn't really possible/practical to attempt to prioritize "on button" timers via the macro system. Actually, I know it can't be done. Perhaps it could be done via an addon, but I'd recommend looking into a good cooldown timer mod, such as ForteXorcist or maybe even the simpler NeedToKnow, both available here at WoW Interface.

Why do I recommend another addon for cooldowns when Mac can show timers on the button? Mostly because they are written specifically to handle cooldown timer needs and Macaroon isn't. An addon that tries to do too many things is hard to maintain and will break at the smallest changes in the client system.

I have my primary bar of 11 buttons. Should I be able to set different binds for each state (druid)? Because I can't seem to do that... or I can... but it's buggy. For example if I set 1-6 then F1-F5 on my caster bar, it seems to already be set on my Cat bar. Then if I use "esc" to remove 1-6 off my cat bar, it gets removed off the caster bar.

However, if I switch 2 and 1 so it goes 2 1 3 4 5 6 on my Cat bar. When I check the Bear bar, it still says 1 2 3 4 5 6. But if I mouseover the first box it says the keys are "1, 2" and the next box says "2, 1". Now I think that's kind of a bug, but it looks like the states CAN have different keys... I just don't know how, or it's not really a feature?

The reason I ask, is because when I'm in Cat form I actually want to make a new primary bar of 4 powers right in the middle of the screen that would get the bindings 1-4. Then my original primary bar at the bottom of the screen would retain 5-6 and F1-F5. But I can't get it to unbind 1-4 on my cat bar and assign it to the LINKED 4 power bar that only pops up when I'm in cat form.

Ok that's complicated I think. I used your complicated bar linking system to have a small 4 power bar pop up only when I'm in cat form. and I want binds 1-4 to change from my pimary bar to that bar and to rebind the first 4 powers on the primary bar to something else, possibly alt+1, alt+2 etc. But only for the first 4.

At the moment I'm just duplicating the macros, and using the small bar just as a in-your-face notification that the powers are ready and usable.

I suppose my issues is this: When you use the keybind feature, it doesn't seem to let you duplicate binds onto different bars even if those bars never show up at the same time if it were to follow the linking logic.

There may be a way to do what you are wanting, but I'll have to play around with the keybinder for a bit. There is an ability to both lock and prioritize a keybind, so my thoughts run along the lines of lock binding a keystroke (as in the 1 key) to separate buttons, then prioritizing the button that is NOT in the normal keyset. Normally this doesn't work because the prioritized keybind overrides the "normal" keybind, or can induce a "race condition", if both keys are marked as priority, where one of the two will fire and maintain priority.

However, as this is basically stance dependent, maybe it'll work.

However, if I switch 2 and 1 so it goes 2 1 3 4 5 6 on my Cat bar. When I check the Bear bar, it still says 1 2 3 4 5 6. But if I mouseover the first box it says the keys are "1, 2" and the next box says "2, 1". Now I think that's kind of a bug, but it looks like the states CAN have different keys... I just don't know how, or it's not really a feature?

The reason I ask, is because when I'm in Cat form I actually want to make a new primary bar of 4 powers right in the middle of the screen that would get the bindings 1-4. Then my original primary bar at the bottom of the screen would retain 5-6 and F1-F5. But I can't get it to unbind 1-4 on my cat bar and assign it to the LINKED 4 power bar that only pops up when I'm in cat form.

Ok that's complicated I think. I used your complicated bar linking system to have a small 4 power bar pop up only when I'm in cat form. and I want binds 1-4 to change from my pimary bar to that bar and to rebind the first 4 powers on the primary bar to something else, possibly alt+1, alt+2 etc. But only for the first 4.

At the moment I'm just duplicating the macros, and using the small bar just as a in-your-face notification that the powers are ready and usable.

I suppose my issues is this: When you use the keybind feature, it doesn't seem to let you duplicate binds onto different bars even if those bars never show up at the same time if it were to follow the linking logic.

Moving the files like this has worked for me more than a few times in the past.

There should have only been two Macaroon files to copy, Macaroon.lua and MacaroonProfiles.lua. The only ones you would need would be the ones located in /WTF/Account/[account name]/SavedVariables/ and that is the only place you'd need to copy them to on the second machine. In fact, if you've installed Macaroon, started the game at any time, then shut it down (to save state) then the only file you'd need to copy over is MacaroonProfiles.lua.

MacaroonProfiles.lua contains, as you would expect, the profiles you would have created and saved, and should show up in the profiles section.

The individual character SavedVariables folders also contain Macaroon files, but those shouldn't have any effect on the "profiles" tab in the interface as they are individual to the character. The Macaroon.lua file contains the button and bar states, but it's basically a snapshot of that character only. If you've saved that character's bar/button state as a profile, that is kept in the above mentioned MacaroonProfiles.lua file.

So, tl:dr is that you really only need to copy over is the MacaroonProfiles.lua file located in the global SavedVariables file located in your WTF folder, making sure to place it in the same location located on the other machine.

But then again, ones mileage may indeed vary.
