Awesome Maul, thanks so much for the update really appreciate it

I will support what ever you decide to do as I am sure it will be great!!

Would love to see Macaroon live on but am excited to see what new ideas you have for a fresh take on it. If you think you have the time for a new addon I say go for it other wise just do your best to patch up Macaroon and keep it going.

Thanks again, your bar addons really are the best in the game and would so be very very lost without them.

Just a note: The 4.3 update is really very hackish to get the current issues to be non-issues.

Right now I am evaluating what I will be doing going forward. No, I am not out of the addon game, but like its predecessor Trinity Bars, Macaroon has become an unwieldy behemoth.

I have also finally taught myself some new Lua tricks to make things sleeker and more efficient (and also easier to maintain) and that can only mean one thing: a complete rewrite.

If I do a rewrite, I have to decide where I want to go -

These are my thoughts -

1) Keep Macaroon going as is, but improved

2) Revisit Trinity Bars (my thoughts wander there, so I mention it)

3) Make something completely new (of which I have some exciting ideas, but is it worth the effort and hassle?) P.S. I already have a name for this new idea, but I am not sharing yet

I know my presence is hit-n-miss. Writings addons is a hobby, and as I have mentioned before, sometimes real life gets in the way (serious stuff and not so serious)

But I am not going anywhere as far as WoW is concerned and I still enjoy making addons for some strange reason. This post is not a definitive statement, but rather just a public expression of my thoughts on Maul and the whole addon scene.

As for now, I wrote a short fix to address the issue of "GetNumMacroIcons" being a nil-value. (use this at own risk)

open Macaroon.lua and add these lines of code just before line 278 (local function updateMacroIconIndex())

Code:
local function l_GetNumMacroIcons()
  local ICON_PATH = GetMacroIcons(MACRO_ICON_FILENAMES)
  local n = #GetMacroIcons(MACRO_ICON_FILENAMES)
  return n
end
if not GetNumMacroIcons then
  GetNumMacroIcons = l_GetNumMacroIcons
end

local function l_GetMacroIconInfo(i)
  local ICON_PATH = GetMacroIcons(MACRO_ICON_FILENAMES)
  return ICON_PATH[i];
end
if not GetMacroIconInfo then
  GetMacroIconInfo = l_GetMacroIconInfo
end
notice that this is only a quick work-around, hope it helps

You can get plugins for masque, offering various looks for the buttons - just search button facade on this site.
Any word from Maul yet on a fix for Macaroon so it will function in 4.3?

4.3 introduces the new GetMacroIcons that mostly does what is needed to restore functionality. It returns a table with the icon filenames (without the Interface\Icons\ prefix). It does not include the question mark nor the player spells/gear as the regular icon picker does. Though one could copy paste from blizz' macroUI addon to get that.

This doesn't fix the issue that icons will switch when the index changes, however.

I was able to get around the hangs ups in 4.3 by not binding any spells via macaroon. I just did it by the normal WoW bars and it works fine as a spell timer. Only issue is that after I log out I now have to put macaroon in and out of edit before my bar will show up otherwise it is not there at all. I also have to put the buttons into edit, put the mouse into the macro window, then hit escape and the spell will show up.

The other thing I had to do is enable the default bars and bind my spells to them via default WoW keybinding. Otherwise, when I switched into and out of shadow form (Shadow Priest is my main) my bars would disappear.

It's working pretty solid for my purposes but I only have macaroon and macaroon profiles enabled. I disabled all other addons. If it maintains this basic functionality I "may" not have to quit wow...

show bar if player buff is applied?

Is it possible to have a bar appear only if a player has a self cast buff active?

For example, on my subtlety rogue I have an ability called 'shadow dance' which allows the use of abilities that usually require stealth.

So I'd like a little bar to appear whenever I hit shadow dance. Would this be possible? If so can anyone supply an example for me please?

Re: PTR Issues

That's the bug I reported earlier.

4.3 has removed the GetNumMacroIcons() function.
Icons are now referenced by name not index so all of the Macaroon code that involves the icons needs to be redone.

i've noticed on my not often played druid that if you are in any form but caster, vehicle transitions are very buggy

i also used the same basic layout that i use on all my other chars which has vehicle/possession on the same bar that is the default bar (ie druid shifting bar). so was wondering if simply assigning vehicle/possession to a less complicated bar might be that solution.

Re: Re: Re: Frostfire Orb doesn't works

Originally posted by Spyro
I also tried it before posting, but it doesn't work neither, looks like Macaroon has some problem with this spell. The rest of the spells works perfect but there's no way I can make it work with Frostfire Orb, I have tried everything.
ok, now that's weird, because, i've seen this problem before (or at least a problem that sounds just like it) with Frostfire/Flame Orb, and using Action ID mode for the button, instead of a macro, SHOULD fix it.

just checking, but, lets make sure we are talking about the same thing when you say you tried using an action ID button. below is a description of how to set a button to an action ID button (i'll bold the parts that relate to this:

Originally posted by Maul here
Editing Buttons - After you enter button edit mode, all visible buttons will display their button type. There are three possible button types -
Macro: A button that utilizes the in-game macro sytax to cast spells/perform actions.

Action: A button that uses a unique action ID to indicate what spell/action it contains. The contents of an action ID are stored server-side. There are only 120 (1-120) unique ID's for character spells. A special case are possess buttons which can use the action ID's 121-132.

Pet: A button that uses a unique pet action ID to inidacte which pet spell/action it containts. The contents of a pet action ID are stored server-side. There are only 10 (1-10) unique ID's for pet spells.
To change a button's button type, simply left click the button. As you left click, it will cycle through all button types.

Each button type has its own specific button editor. To enable the editor for a button, right click on the button and the appropriate button editor will be displayed. As with the bar editor, there are next/prev buttons at the bottom of the editor. These are additional button options that are not tied to the button's particular type.
