I do not know if maul is planning on coming back starting to look like an abandoned project to me

On a happier note the author of zbar2 just un-abandoned his bar mod.
He put up a new version on curse tonight.
I will probably move back to that again.

With great sadness, I've switched to Dominos. I've seen several posts in this discussion that Dominos is inferior and in the sense that the feature set is more limited, it is. But I've successfully duplicated my UI exactly complete with Paged bars, Stealth Bar, Shift, Alt and Ctrl bars and a PROPERLY working Possess bar and it all works without a hitch and the mentioned lag is absent. I'll give zbars a try next. The best of these action bar mods ever: Flexbar .... reincarnated as Flexbar2 has now been officially abandoned by it's latest author cncfanatics. I spoke directly to him and he indicated that he wasn't playing Warcraft anymore and would definitely not be maintaining Flexbar2. If anyone else has any suggestions, could you please post them? The situation is getting serious with the patch so close.

One question if anyone can comment: How, if possible, do you write a macro to perform one of the Actions on the Possess Bar. Since those actions change with each situation, I'm at a loss to figure this out.

That works for me, but I cannot bind te number keys to it without losing the bindings on my main bar. I would like to be able to re-use 1-9 when the possession bar is up.

No need to create a whole new bar. Just take your main bar, check the possess checkbox and click on the bar untill it says "possession". Then just add 10 buttons, and change (if necessary) the button type to possession by going into button edit mode and clicking on each button untill they're all possession-buttons.

Works great for me. I have never had any issues with it at all. =)

In what appears to be Maul's vanishment, and the impeding break of Macaroon in 3.0.8, I have been investigating other bar mods... and they really all seem to suck.

Nothing with good macro control, fleixible bar setup, right-click copy, left-click drag on abilities, pop-up menus, lots of buttons on bars.... argh.

Seriously, WoW is going to suck without Macaroon!. Why can't any other mod authors have seem how good this mod is and copied some of it's excellent features?

I switched to bartender 4 instead of going back to Zbar2 I am still leary of zerofire abandoning his project again.

Bartender4:
a couple of things right out of the box..

- Didn't have to setup vehicle bars the default bar pages automatically.
I went and did the "thrusting hodirs spear" quest first thing after installing and setting up my bars. The controls switched cleanly.

- Skills also turned red when out of range another plus.

- You could not key-bind directly to your spell-book, but..key-binding was very simple to setup.

- user interface was clean and intuative.

- a new version came out after installing so the authors are obviously active and maintaining it.

dont see any problems at all with this addons, most of the problems we have or had are now explained on the FaQ! since end of november the macaroon is working well for me with all caracter, vehicle, possess or other pet bar.

big thanks to maul for this again.

i can understand maul not turning up to answer some questions about bugg that we already asked page 100 (for exemple). also some other questions that you will find the answer in the faq.

bartender 4 as you said is easier to configurat but really really far away from the posibilities that macaroon will offer you. ok this is a bit more complicated to get used to but once you get it, you gonna find this easy and powerfull.

about PTR, dont have problem with macaroon on ptr, still working fine and any error at all on it... strange!

point to the part in the faq where it tells us how to make this work with the next upcoming patch - because on the PTR, this addon is broken.

just adding this in: I personally usually average around 3 new video games for Christmas and will not touch wow for nearly 6 to 8 weeks. I hope that's the case with Maul and that its not something serious. games and addons aside, hope everything is okay.

It would just be nice to have him post something so people know he hasn't jumped ship. I'm currently on the brink of switching back to BT4 until the bugs get ironed out. I realize they are fixed easily, but it's no comfort to know they exist since there's no way to tell if the next big patch may break it.

I smell the scent of MazzleUI creeping in.

To do this, simply create the bar and add buttons to the Possess mode, but do not add any to the Normal mode.

There are instructions for this in the FAQ. Specifically, you want the section titled How do I make a pet or possess bar that works?
