Self Casts

Perhaps Benecaster is a good solution for self casts?

Raided for the 2nd time tonight with Mac. I'm not certain that Mac is the culprit, but my frame rate since the patch is single digit on bosses compared to 30-40 pre patch. I tracked cpu with performance_fu and pitbull was on top with Mac second. During a break, I switched out pitbull for sraidframes. Mac was on top after that. I'm unable to test Mac in a boss/raid situation with out actually being in a boss/raid situation. So next raid I'm going with Domino's to see if that makes a difference. My wife and I play together on identical computers, but she doesn't use Mac and has no fps/cpu issues at all. PLeeZ let it not be Macaroon. I love this addon.

Any insights, suggestions, or whatever appreciated.

What's the status on getting 'Zoomed' style buttons like Trinity Bars had? ButtonFacade really has been causing more harm than good, there was a huge memory leak with Satrina's Buff Frames for a while, and the addon's Blizzard style buttons really looks nothing like Blizzard style, and it's especially annoying because it forces itself on everything.

As I said before, ButtonFacade's Zoomed style is not done all that well, there are little shreds of the button's original outlines, specs in the corners, and doesn't seem to be aligned properly.

Even if it is, I will get it fixed =) That is why it is still a beta. And that is also why it is not on curse yet. I find the WoWI community very helpful in feedback and I get no, or very little, "OMGZ WHAT IZ DIS JUNK!?! IT EATZ MY FPS!"

Soon I am working on the performance reports right now. I gotta tune up the engine before I lay down a coat of paint

\o/ ... gottta love the style! hehehe


oh, and no, BeneCaster != BeneMacaroon .. sorry if u misunderstood my original point

BTW Maul: I dunno if anybody has suggested this, but a more detailed keybind editor would be lovely! .. as I say setting up the keybinds over and over by using the "press key to set" method is nice, but also a pain. Some options like if you have a bars ALT,CTRL,SHIFT modifiers options set, it also sets the keys to use those modifiers also when u bind .... Just a mega-time-saving thought. But then again i am a programmer so typing and pressing things over n over is like cryptonite to superman!

Awesome job so far tho Maul, the baseline idea for this project is solid!

Dream.

Does this happen if you played with no addons at all? I have a Mac Pro with the Radeon HD3780 video card. Everything is running just fine. There are some reports of new shadow effects having problem with some Mac video cards, although I've got the new shadow effects turned all the way up without any issues.

The list of addons I've got running are:

BasicChatMod
BigWigs
CastYeller
Cartographer
FriendShare
Fubar2Broker
Fubar_SkillPlusFu
Macaroon
MovableBags
Omen
Ora2
Outfitter
Poisoner 3
QuestAnnouncer
Sanity
Scrolling Combat Text
SCT - Damage
SimpleUnitFrames
SpellReminder
sRaidFrames
Talented
Talented_Data
TitanPanel

Re: Did you know...

... Maul, you are probably one of the most responsive addon dev I've seen? Even going back to the first TrinityBars days when BC was in beta... (some token of gratitude which you may or not may see by toggling on your currency panel).

The FPS issue mentioned by others using ButtonFacade is... hrm.. pretty bad. I'm using TitanPanel (after being pretty disappointed with how fast Fubar's updated, and I've always liked TitanPanel's look'n feel anyway), which I think is another Ace3 framework addon. I do have a couple of other Ace2 addon as well... I'm not sure this is what contributes towards it, but ButtonFacade is the only one that makes the game unplayable overtime. Everything else is behaving as happily as ever.

I understand that skinning is not a priority right now, I'm perfectly happy with Macaroon as the way it is even without any skins.. just makes it a bit prettier. Even if it's never implemented, I still love Macaroon. For now, I'm content to just wait and see what happens with ButtonFacade... until they really fix it, I just won't use any skin.

Overall, Macaroon is really another huge step up from Trinity in ease of configuration, I was able to set up my character's toolbars even faster than before. Other than a hilarious incident where we wiped on Chess (because half of us didn't have a pet bar set up)... it's been a pretty smooth ride so far. Thanks for all the great work.
Thank you kindly

As for the skinning, I am starting to sway towards the direction of including an internal skinning engine. The only issue I ever had with it is skinning buttons that were not Trinity's. Not that it couldn't, I just didn't want to spend time making it skin other buttons properly.

I have been running performance tests, with both BF on and off, and even though I know some are having issues, I can't seem to replicate them, which makes it harder to figure out what is going on, if indeed anything is in Macaroon.

As for the pet/possess bar thing, your little story made me chuckle Wiping on chess...ouch! And sorry!

Hey Maul,

I just found out when I was using Eye of the Beast (hunter skill to control pet), the pet bar is missing.

Is this a bug or is there something I need to do to my pet bar to fix this?

Thanks.

I got a problem with Macaroon & Button Facade.

every time I log into WOW the background of empty buttons is not transparent as if I'm in edit mode so I click two times on the minimap button to correct the problem.

concerning the problem of performance some people are seeing with Button Facade, a new version is on wowace or curse that correct an "infinite re-hooking bug" this bug was discovered by Satrina while he was investigating a severe performance hit when using Button Facade with SBF 3. (apparently he is still investigating a memory leak when using Button Facade with SBF3)

Actually I went to the lua files and deleted the references to buttonfacade, this seems to have sorted the problem. Even though ButtonFacade wasn't enabled, it was still causing issues because of the references in the macaroon savedvariables. Seems to be working now, even with 30000.23.

Still no idea how to make the buttons from caster form appear on travel form, flight form and aquatic form though, can you explain how to do that ?

Not a bug, you need to enable possess on a bar and add pet buttons to it. Pet and Possess are considered two different states by Blizzard.

Sure did! I just haven't gone through the latest bug reports yet to evaluate them. I was looking into this performance issue.

Good to know about BF. If the issue is with the default Blizz skin, I am aware of the issue. It is not something I have been trying to tackle fervently because people use BF to not have the default Blizz skin
