007

I have not yet had time to test that. But as I was looking here, I saw version 007 and it seems to be working fine. I don't have much playtime during the week to test stuff but now the petbar at least comes back up after resurrecting a dead pet and mounting, dismounting.
Haven't had a chance to try version 007 on warlock yet but the hunter seems to be OK. Thanks for looking into it.

Screenshot please.

Does this still happen when rBars2 is the only active addon (to make sure this error comes from rBars2 only). Its interesting since I tested it with nearly every char without any problems.

Re: petbar background...

Originally posted by AnElk
For some odd reason, my hunter has a clean screen with pet up, but warlock does not. On warlock, with the demon up, the petbar background is showing just like it did before installing rTextures. And these two characters are on same account. Oddity or are things actually saved separately between characters?
After some testing and piddling around, it appears that the petbar gets messed up if the settings for "Options - Interface - Actionbars" has the 'lower left' actionbar turned off. I had these set different on my hunter and warlock and as I changed the lower left actionbar to be active on warlock as well, the petbar suddenly showed up where I expected it to and without the ugly background squares to the far left and below to make it worse.
It still has the issue with dissappearing every once in a while, not only while in combat, but also going on and off a mount seems to cause the petbar to simply vanish.

This was found out with the 005 version of rBars2. I'm just now DLing the 006 version to see if it is more stable.


I have not yet found a working version of ItemRack... If you know where to find one, I'd like to know. I really miss that addon. Outfitter is not as good.

Itemrack

If you use Itemrack and bind your sets it will make the keybindings continue to show after reloading. I imagine this is because Itemrack reports the keybinding everytime.


PS: Awesome work once again!

combat and securetemplates make this happen. you have no chance to avoid this.

I fixed it to not do anything while in combat, thus the petbar will return if you get out of combat, but when you cast a pet in combat...bad time thats not doable.

Re: Re: squares and spaces...

[i]
5) There are alot mods out there, just use Dominos its awesome and has a GUI. [/b]
I found the rtexture thingy and now the strange look is gone.
It's a pity spacing is not available nor the keybindings visible but I did use Dominos for some time and the problem with that one as well s FuBar and others is that one has to completely redo everything, then when Blizzard makes a patch, like they do fairly often, everything is wiped out unfotunately, even what functions are set in what actionbars. This is why I gave up Dominos, Bongos, FuBar and others. I got tired of the painful process of redoing every single actionbutton on three level 70's and then some alts that also uses maximum numbers of actionbars LOL...

Oh well. I suppose I can make do without the visible key bindings for now but seeing as rBars2 uses blizzards original code, it shouldn't be so hard to make the bindings visible just like the original actionbars?

I use a temporary sollution to the huge gaps/spaces that isn't entirely satisfactory but will suffice for now.
Another matter I was wondering about was the positioning oc the actionbars.
I read the lua file comments and from what I understand, it should be possible to switch places on actionbars as they sit in their own "dock" ?

When I'm not working 10 hours a day, 6 days a week I might piddle around in the lua to see if I can figure out how to move them lower at least. The vertical spacing is more annoying of it and my main concern.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Da voodoo be wid ya mon.

First off: This actionbar mod is not meant for you. You need a basic understanding in how to open and edit a lua file, otherwise this won't work for you.
Please download Dominos and use ButtonFacade to style Domninos. This will be way easier for you.

1) You have not installed rTextures, thus you have not read the information page
2) There are no keybindings in this mod
3) Spacing is not available
4) no problem
5) There are alot mods out there, just use Dominos its awesome and has a GUI.

squares and spaces...

Problem nr 1:
I have an issue with the buttons looking strange, I to have those little squares on them that makes it look like double textures ontop of eachother. I do not want that. Plain and simple ones like the original ones is what I need.

Problem nr 2:
I can not see the keybindings on the buttons, again it is something I actualy need. I'm using all available actionbars and I don't always remember the keybindings on things I haven't used in a session or two. How do I make the keybindings show?

Problem nr 3:
The spacing between the buttons are excessive. I'm trying to minimize the screen space the UI is taking up and the huge gaps between the buttons with rBars2 is what... 15 - 20 pixels? I need only 1 - 3 pixels space between them, horizontally as well as verticaly. How do I fix that?

Problem nr 4:
I'm a complete and utter noob when it comes to coding so whatever the answers for the above questions are, it needs to be simple to understand and find in the lua file.

Random rant:
I loathe messing with lua files instead of a GUI but this rBars2 is the only actionbar addon I have found so far that does NOT require I remake all the hotkeys and keybindings for everything. I need an actionbar addon that doesn't mess up the default UI after patches and for that. rBars seems to be the way to go. Thanks for your work on it and for not forcing me to redo all my actionbars and buttons whenever blizzard makes us shut down addons and wait for updated ones.

I still have the older textures.
and no I don't have the always show bars checked.
