Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

Love the addon and have been using it since it's inception, though!
It sounds like the Curse client deleted the saved variables for the addon when it updated it. Look in the savedvariables/ folder and see if there is an ion.lua.bak file. If so you can rename it to ion.lua and you may be able to recover your settings. Im not sure how often WoW makes the .bak of the settings so they may be up to date.

Bar Configuration Problem

I have an issue with configuring bars.

It primarily involves configuring setups that haven't been used in a long time. The bars will have problems adjusting the number of buttons. For instance, it wlll only go up to 5, but will go down to -7. If I run it up and down several times it sometimes fixes the bar. I can delete and recreate a bar and sometimes that works, sometimes not. I'm guessing perhaps there is a corrupted config file or something, somewhere that needs to get deleted, clear, or otherwise unhosed.

An suggestions?

This section of the site is completely AWOL. If you believe it was forcibly removed via Zerg sabotage you can submit a help ticket by clicking the help link near the login at the top left of the page.

I see you are doing some work on it but would like to know where to get the updated files from.

Thanks for the heads up about Curse. I'll look into it and see why Ion was removed.
WoWInterface has the most recent version of Ion, so all you need to download it and you should be set.


Edit: I contacted the folks at Curse and the addons is now listed again on their site.

Maybe I'm missing an option but is anyone having trouble setting different keybinds between specs? The new profile system allows you to have different keybinds between characters but specs are stuck using the same. Any clarification?

Nope, I'm still here and working on it. I just haven't had the time to push out an 6.2 update yet. I hope to this weekend, when I (hopefully) have some free time to do the update.

Best suggestion... sounds like you're trying to manually create the macro icon, try dragging the spell (with the talent taken) out of your spellbook onto an unused button on your bar and let Ion create the macro for you. I find sometimes there are conditionals (some text within the brackets after the spell name, usually a spec or a spell type or a form or similar) that Ion includes with some spells that impact whether tooltips show up or not. Hunter traps seem to be another example of this and I believe I've seen similar behaviour with mages and druids and probably other classes as well.

(and in a similar vein, if it has a conditional and doesn't show the tooltip, try removing the conditional)

I've had my priest talented into PW:Solace at times and I don't recall ever having an issue with the tooltip on that icon, including when I use multi-functional macros - my priest tends to have buttons that cast different spells when a hostile is selected, mostly from back in the Atonement days... habit more than useful these days.

Anyway, give that a try, see how it goes.

Power Word: Solace issue

Hello Maul & SLOKnightfall!

thanks for the work you have done so far!

It has been a while since I haven't used hydrogen's version. So I decided to get back into it and make it fresh by disabling all my previous add ons and deleting my WTF folder.

Playing mainly my priest, as discipline, I started doing really primary macros, such as "/cast Flash Heal" and testing them (paying attention to each single behaviour).

After my third macro: /cast Power Word: Solace
I have noticed an issue: there is no tooltip and no cooldown timer nor cooldown text regarding this spell.

First steps which came to my mind was to check:
- If the "Enable Tooltips" was activated: Yes, indeed.
- If the "Hide in combat" was deactivated: Yes, it is.
- If the "Cooldown text" was activated: Yes, it is.

Next steps, erased the current Action Bar and created a new one and tried the same.
Result: same issue.
Tried with another spell, no problem at all.

Information regarding this spell:
- Power Word: Solace is a talent lvl45
- It meant to replace Holy Fire.
- SpellID: 129250(PW Solace) & 14914(Holy Fire)
- As Discipline: GetSpellBookItemName(50, BOOKTYPE_SPELL): Power World: Solace Talent
- As Holy: GetSpellBookItemName(52, BOOKTYPE_SPELL): Power World: Solace Talent

Extra troubleshootings:
I tried the following macro with and without the talent: /cast Holy Fire
- With the Talent: the icon's spell appears correctly as PW: Solace but the issue remains.
- Without the Talent: the icon's spell is the one of Holy Fire and there is no issue anymore. Tooltip works and the CD timer shows up.

Does anyone know where this issue come from and how to fix it, please?

Just Sayin

Hey Maul,

Just wanted to say that ive been using a version of these bars since they first came out...I think It was trinity back then. Definitely was back during early Burning Crusade but maybe even before then because I remember fiddling round with the stance settings on my druid.

Ive come back to playing since May 2013 and Im so glad to see that these bars are still around.

You rock! Thanks so much for your work over the years!

Love from a loyal fan

I'd be okay with this change and have one of my own to add, I'd like the cooldown alpha to only trigger when there aren't any charges left or at the very least only trigger full alpha with no charges available (there might be some value in decreasing the alpha for intermittent charge levels to show gradients), my at-a-glance radar doesn't work when that full alpha triggers and I still have charges left so I end up often not using them when I should. I've had to turn off alpha entirely at this point to make sure I use the ability when I can.
