Anyone know if there's a way to fix the tooltips of the new way some spells/abilities are handled in MoP? For those that aren't aware, some spells now change to another spell based on your spec such as Rogue's Eviscerate changes to Envenom in Assassination and Warlock's Shadow Bolt changes to Malefic Grasp in Affliction, among others. What happens with Ion is that it will still only show the tooltip of the original spell which, while not a huge deal, is a bit annoying. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

http://i.imgur.com/rApdiCw.jpg

I'm mousing over what is Malefic Grasp but it shows the tooltip for it's original spell: Shadow Bolt. It does show the correct icon however. I've messed around in the config and haven't found anything.

"Edit: I looked at the addon's website. *I'm not sure this will ever be compatible with Ion. *The icons are way too small to see numbers and it probably doesn't have a compatible interface. *My suggestion is either look for another UI mod or stay with that one but unable to use DrDamage. *I personally use ElvUI and a few guildies either use that or X-Perl, or similar. (A few use nothing at all other than the necessary mods for raiding and this) *I hear another person is using DrDamage with Macaroon without issue at the moment".

From answer it doesnt seem he even tested it.Hopefully the same code that made it posiable to work with old Macaroon is same code thats needed to work with new Ion.
quote from Angosia- from Curse page of Drdamage "I spoke with Gagorian about this. *He agrees that the implementation is not straight-forward. *While we could reverse-engineer this (with a lot of time expended), he thinks the best solution is for the Ion mod author to explain the internal table structure. *To that end, he has emailed the author to ask for information that may be of use.

That's not a guarantee, however. *If the ROI (return on investment) suggests the amount of work expended to get this result is too great, it may not be supported. * Keep that in mind. *At the moment, it is a "maybe"."


Hope Maul responds to Drdamage authors soon.

Crash

I have a problem that I hope is an easy fix.

I was playing and my character wouldn't leave combat. Turns out, a background anti-virus program was running. I tried to drop out of WoW, but in the end, I had to Cntl-Alt-Del amd close WoW. Turns out, I could have just killed the anti-virus (Oh, GOD, how I wish I had done that). Nonetheless, when I logged back in, I got the primary message for this version of Ion, in the centered little rectangle, that it was Beta, blahblahblah, and a double line of buttons along the bottom. No problem, I thought, I'll just reload my profile. Except that when I click on the ION menu, the window is completely black. I came here and reinstalled the latest version into my AddOns, but no change.

Any suggestions? I sincerely can't remember the last time I backed up my WTF, it's been since October, maybe? So I may not even have the proper info in the WTF backup if the main WTF is screwed. Yeah, I restarteed my PC, as well.


Help?

3440x Ion-MenuBar\Ion-MenuBar-Hydrogen-2.lua:161: attempt to index global "PVPFrame"

Hopefully Ion gets a little 5.2 love. Here is what bug sack has to offer:

Ion-MenuBar\Ion-MenuBar-Hydrogen-2.lua:161: in function <Ion-MenuBar\Ion-MenuBar.lua:90>
<in C code>

5.2 Update?

Is there a pending release for a 5.2 update to Ion?

So far it hasn't crashed WoW, but I have had the popup asking if I want to disable it or ignore.

Menu Bar was so broke I had to disable it. Every kill would pop up an error message.

dirty fix for the pvpframe issue on 5.2, need some love, but functionnal right now :

in the file : ion-menubar.lua

before the line :

local function updateTabard(button)


add the following
Code:
if not IsAddOnLoaded("Blizzard_PVPUI") then LoadAddOn("Blizzard_PVPUI") end
and then replace all occurences of the string :

Code:
PVPFrame
by the string :

Code:
PVPUIFrame
save the file, and reload wow.

fully functionnal for me, no errors shown anymore.

Hi all,

Working on a 5.2 update, won't have any new major features though.

I am looking into DrDamage + Ion, and I received a PM on the matter.

Thank you, Maul! <3 I'll be sending a Coke or two your way when the update arrives.

I personally prefer the continued stability of what Ion does now over more features and the risk of more bugs (the price of added complexity). Especially if new features means it's too difficult for you to find the time to update Ion when Blizz decides to change things up.

After all these years, there still isn't an action bar addon out there that can compare, so again, thank you!

deleted my previous message by mistake...

----


Hi everybody,

About drdamage, I made a minor patch that is functionnal.

But, it won't update if you change the button position, and I don't know how to hook properly.

So, right now, open DrDamage.lua, and search for this string :

Code:

if IsAddOnLoaded("Macaroon") then


Just before it, insert the following :

Code:

if IsAddOnLoaded("Ion") then
local func = function(button)
if button.config and button.config.type == "action" then
return SecureButton_GetModifiedAttribute(button,"action",SecureButton_GetEffectiveButton(button))
end
if button.macroshow then
return nil, string_match(button.macroshow,"[^%(]+"), button.macrorank
end
if button.macrospell then
return nil, string_match(button.macrospell,"[^%(]+"), button.macrorank
end
end
ABrefresh["Ion"] = function()
for button in pairs(IonGDB.buttons) do
ABtable["IonActionButton"..button] = func
end
end

end

It should display the proper numbers without any issue.

About when I will update the "update" feature, I don't know if I will be able to do this.

Regards.

ION with he last patch didnt work anymore - for example in menu bar, the pvp button is broken, blizzard changed it and more... THANKS
I don't think anyone makes addons as a job. I'd wager that for most everyone it is a hobby when they have the free time. I personally know nothing about Maul's personal life, what he does for a job or school, what his free time is, how often he can sit down at a computer to work on code for an addon.

I can understand your frustration with Ion not working. A simple work around for me currently is to turn off the Menu Bar, and then set keyboard shortcuts for the windows you want to open. Using Cntrl, Shift, and Alt modifiers can give you many options.

Remember, Maul doesn't get paid for this addon. He asks for donations, but does not demand them by any stretch of the imagination.

Just give it time, maybe buy him a Coke.

yes i edited after few mins before your answer but anyway profiles wasnt added in these 7 months and are most important thing and probably isnt verry hard to implement just profiles. I edit keybinds every day at every char switch and every spec per char... Great addon anyway thanks for it.

Yes absolutely. I saw it only lately, as I'm doing reloadui for other fixes, and reloadui prevent this error to occur again.

Right now, doing a reloadui is a crappy workaround, and will let you use the pvp button. It's still far from a good solution, but better for nothing.

I'm also checking on other addons how they managed it (ie, it's the blizzard addon that trigger this before the first reload ui).
