Thx for helping !

PS: sorry for the bad english.
1. Open the file "Ion_ExtraBar.lua" in Interface\AddOns\Ion
2. Goto line 410 or search for "self.actionID = 133" (w/o the quotation marks, of course)
3. Change "133" to "169"
4. Save Ion_ExtraBar.lua
5. Restart Wow

sorry to but in like this, but i THINK i have the info you're looking for. (er, assuming no jedi decides to show up and mind trick me out of it. lol...)

basically, yes, there are two different modes of controlling things like that, one is called "vehicle mode", whereas the other is called "possession mode". (the UI reacts differently to each mode, from what i know.) now, blizz has tried quite a few times to merge the two modes, and last i heard, they had yet to do so without (near-) crippling the game with glitches.

anyway, back to the point of this comment; it sounds to me like one of the two modes is giving you a button with no bar, and the other mode gives a bar with no buttons. now, which mode is producing which effect, i don't know yet, i'd need more info.

I use the last Github version of Ion (about a month old) but with the debug code removed, which put debug info in chat whenever I changed action states and drove me bonkers. If anyone wants me to send them a copy, just PM me with your e-mail address. Since it's from Github, I can't promise you won't see new bugs you don't have now, but I don't recall that any new issues cropped up for me - it did fix my Extra Action button problems, however. Just back up your WTF folder to be safe before trying it (always a good practice).

Development isn't dead on it. I'm sure that with all of the API changes that Blizzard made, in addition to Maul's complete rebuild of Macaroon! into Ion, and not to mention real life, it's just taking Maul some time. Development is far from dead, and Ion Hydrogen 2 is very useful. There are a couple of work-arounds you may have to do (see my last post re: the Extra Action Button), but it's nothing terribly exciting, and if you're used to Trinity/Macaroon!, Ion's certainly in a useable state compared to the normal Blizzard UI.

The Extra Action Button doesn't appear to be working yet. However, what I've done in the meantime is just set a single button off to the side somewhere and assigned a bind to it that I don't normally use elsewhere, and in it, I set the macro to:

/click ExtraActionButton1

If you want an icon of some sort other than the "?" that normally appears, just assign a spell icon that you won't confuse it with, like:

#show Prowl();

Or something like that. It's not a perfect fix, but it at least lets you use the extra action button. Then, when the extra action button itself appears, you know it CAN be used, so then use the button you set up off to the side to actually use it.

There's two fights I'm having a problem with. It should be noted that I use Ion sort of 'behind the scenes', with hidden bars and keybindings, while keeping my Blizzard bars displayed since I like how they look.

In Heroic Nefarian, when I get mind controlled, and in EoE when it places you on a drake, there's a problem.

Basically, if I get on a vehicle while in combat. Once combat ends it's fine, or if I get on a vehicle out of combat it works fine, but if it's in combat, it doesn't work. What it does is play the animation of switching to the new bar over and over again until combat ends.

I've noticed in EoE that the buttons will still work as long as I know which buttons to press. But in Heroic Nefarian, even though I was spamming 1 and 2, I just walked to the portal and died and couldn't break mind control.

Here's an example for Heroic Nefarian:

http://www.twitch.tv/thortok2000/c/1703200

Is there a setting I can change to fix this? Plan to do this boss again tonight and would like to not die every time I get mind controlled...
