That is using my pre-4.0 Macaroon setup or without addons.

As far as I can tell, the default UI doesn't use macro conditionals to change the action bar, but some sort of game mechanic does it. I no longer have my pre-4.0 settings or a pre-4.0 game client to tinker with, but it obviously wasn't the reaction option... come to think of it, it could have been the control option. Is that no longer a feature?
Ah, okay, I understand now If I recall, those events trigger the possess bar.

Maul, thank you for all ur hard work. As Urbin stated below, this is prob. the one mod that makes WOW still worth playing; for me @ least.

I did notice that the Macro Master button was back (yeah!!), but it is grayed out & can't be clicked.. Is this a work in progress?

I ran into the same issue. What i had to do was change the button type to "Action" instead of "Macro" then drag the icon from my spellbook.

You can email what you have to trinityui@live.com.

I am working on a localization project using tools found at curseforge.com, however, and hope to have it available soon for users to edit.

I'm having trouble making a reaction bar. The reaction option instead tags it with harm. It calls it a "hostile" state. It just makes the bar change whenever I target an enemy instead of as a reaction. Am I doing something wrong?

Also, quick question. What is the difference between cooldown text and aura watch text?
Beware of dragging mere items onto the macaroon macro buttons since they get plantet on them as /use itemnameputinhere which may have different effects on some items, especially trinkets, hence, if already equipped, it does nothing, try to either set the button to action ID and put the trinket on thet new button OR do the macro thing and say /use 13 for the first trinket and /use 14 for the second since that's the equipment slot number they reside on

Oh... and you should get some aura watch text and cooldown text both ways, hope that helped

Re: Vehicle bar not working

Originally posted by drwoods

When I switch, I get no bar for controlling the abomination. If I go into edit mode after changing, I can see that the possess and pet bars both have the two spells supplied. Additionally the vehicle bar has them and the 3 'control' buttons for dismounting, etc.

Try going into edit mode, then cycle the bar states both to normal ( while you have neither pet nor minion under your control) then leave edit mode, now grab a yourself some vehicle and enjoy the ride

However, I have encountered a couple of issues:

1) in the old version there was an option to have a numerical cooldown count on the buttons. This no longer shows and I can't for the life of me find the option to turn it back on. Is this feature gone?

2) on my hunter 3 of 5 traps always appear greyed out and if I try to click on them I get the "this action is not yet ready" error. However, clicking on them in my spellbook sets the trap, so they are obviously not on a cooldown. Pulling them from the speelbook to the bars has not helped.

3) my shaman no longer shows blizzard's Totem bar. I have downloaded the macaroon totem bar addon and will see if that fixes the issue but in the old version that was not necessary.

Apart from the fact that the sizing seems to have been busted (and that was easily fixed again) things seem to work well, so far.

Thanks for your work.

1) Unless I misunderstand the question it's in the general tab stated as Aura watch text

2) This is a known bug, unfortunately it's a blizzard one in macro interpretation.

3) The Macaroon version is still just like the Blizzard one. However I believe Maul has some intention to add his touch to it in the future.
As to why the Blizzard one isn't showing I'll leave to Maul to answer.

Well I must be doing something wrong cause the options are not working. I assume when I drag an ability from the spellbook it makes it into a macro on the bar. Cause in each macro I see:
#autowrite
/cast [] Raging Blow(Berserker Stance)

Not sure what #autowrite does it disappears when i edit the macro.

I assume the [] is an empty conditional. Not sure what (Berserker stance) is for unless thats just a comment or something.
That's right, (Berserker stance) is just the specification of the spell, used to be where spell rank was stated: (rank 2)
However empty brackets () will also work.

But the options just don't do anything. I have Current Bar checked, but that seems to be the only thing that sticks. If I try to check current button it doesn't stick.

So either something is bugged or the complexity of this addon is making it difficult for me to figure out.
The radio buttons are the ones you should chose first when you want to change something, as it tells Macaroon to what extent you want to change something(the bar, the button or the state), then you go ahead and change the settings.

aura watch text (not sure what this does)
aura watch hilight (not sure what this does either)
Aura watch text = buff/debuff CD
Aurea watch hilight = green border if active.


Also do I have to create 3 seperate bars that only show in combat only. Since the combat option for the stance bar only has one combat bar and not one for each stance.

I tried earlier doing a custom stance by adding in
[stance:3]
[combat]
But wasn't working.
You can either make a workhorse bar to control the combat state of the stance bar or do it bu custom state. the workhorse way is explained in the FAQ and the custom state way should be with.

[combat, stance:1]
[combat, stance:2]
[combat, stance:3]

with optional

[nocombat, stance:1]
[nocombat, stance:2]
[nocombat, stance:3]
