Broker: TalentSwitch - No longer supported  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: No Longer supported
by: Tymesink [More]
This addon is no longer supported. I would suggest using the following addon as a replacement:

Ara Broker SpecSwitcher





Broker: TalentSwitch is a LibDataBroker based info addon. This is a very simple addon which provides a simple and easy way
to switch between Primary and Secondary Talent specs.

Data Broker Display
This plugin does not provide a display of its own, you will need to install display plugin such as Fortress, Carousel or Docking Station, amongst others.

Re: Fun with multiple realms and mixed dual-spec/not

Noticed something last night:

It doesn't seem to be playing well with characters across multiple servers.

For example, on Terenas, I have a Druid in the first slot of my char select screen. I configured TalentSwitch to report "Tree" for Primary and "Moonkin" for Secondary specs.

On Illidan, I have a lowbie shaman in the first slot of my char select screen. This character is not yet dual-spec enabled.

If I log on the shaman, then log out and log on the druid, my druid's settings are cleared (the mod reports "Pirmary" and "Secondary" as the spec names).

If I fix the druid, then log out and log in as the shaman, it reports "Tree" as the shaman's spec!

Ok, granted, this mod doesn't really do anything if you aren't dual-spec, and in theory I should turn it off.. but I wouldn't expect it to cause harm by leaving it on.
Thanks for the bug report.. I will get working on this soon.

Thanks. As an update, I'm seeing similar behavior even for multiple dual-spec enabled characters on the same realm.

You probably mean what I just saw - the talent alias are not set per character. Investigating the saved variables it looks like they are set per profile. Why?

Updated...

SO here's whats going on with the profile issue...

I think the confusion on this profile issue begins when the addon first loads, it defaults to a shared "Default" profile. So when you customize the broker for a toon and then switch to another toon... the second toons picks up the "Default" profile by default. (No pun intended).

It should now default to a per character profile rather than a shared "Default" for a new character that has not loaded/used the addon before.

If you've ran the addon already on a toon, go to the config area for TalentSwitch and click on the "profiles" config and select the character name and realm for your toon.

I only have 2 characters on one server that I have dual specs. I was able to switch between both toons with out having any cross profile data issues. I was not however able to test across realms.

Please let me know if this fixes this issue or not... thanks!

Looks like it works, with 2 very minor annoyances:
- If I reset the "default" profile, I would have liked that to clear the profile assignments on my characters, so that from that point forward the new defaults would work. No matter, I already fixed up my 2 dual-spec characters on Terenas and my non-dual-spec character on Illidan that I had logged in with while running this mod.
- In order to get the spec's icon to display, I have to click "Get Talent Info". So, for example, on my druid I click that button, it gives me the leaf and moonfire icons plus "Restoration xx/xx/xx" and "Balance xx/xx/xx". Then I clear box 1 and type "Tree" and clear box 2 and type "Moonkin". Would be nice to get the icons without loading in new text that I have to delete. Currently if I don't follow these steps, I get the target icon that Blizzard shows when you haven't spent your points.

But in response to the fix of the original problem, yes, my 3 characters across 2 servers now have independent profiles, and changing one does nothing to other. I haven't tried on a new char yet to make sure he defaults to his own profile.

I'm using the Ace profile management in this addon. So the "Reset Profile" button only reset the current profile your toon is using. So to manage the "Default" profile you would select that as your profile for that toon and click on the "Reset Profile".

If you reset all you toon profiles... from the profile management area, you can delete profiles in the database. Then when you login into those toons, they will have new profile upon login.

So the feature would be to be able to select a custom icon or just by default when switching specs, the icon for that talent tree will show?

Oh cool.. that would have been good to know. Anyway it only effected 3 characters of mine, and those have already been corrected.

I definitely wasn't thinking about a custom icon (although somebody who is dual-spec PvE resto / PvP resto might want that). I was just thinking it would automatically apply Blizzard's default icon for my specs without pressing "Get Talent Info" in the options, which adds text I don't want.

This might be a little out the scope for TalentSwitch, but would it be possible to add a chat funtion to tell your raid or party (or just /say if not in either) What talent spec you've switched to, and have this customizable?

ie:
"BrknSoul draws his swords and prepares to do some damage!" when switching to fury spec
"BrknSoul dons his shield, ready to protect those in need!" when switching to prot spec.

Fixed..(I hope) I dont have titan or esES (isn't esES a language locale?) but looking at the error report that was posted here and then looking at the code, I found an obvious mistake. I apologize for that. Let me know if you continue to have problems. If so, I will load up titan to further trouble shoot this.

Let me think about that for a bit. I like the idea. My original scope for this addon was to be a simple tools to switch between talent specs.

Get this with the latest (v1.9):

Code:
[2009/05/28 07:07:35-14-x1]: Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\core.lua:231: bad argument #2 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)
Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\core.lua:231: in function `GetTalentInfo'
Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\core.lua:240: in function `GetAlias'
Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\ldb.lua:102: in function `UpdateDisplay'
Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\ldb.lua:121: in function `?'
Broker_TalentSwitch-1.9\ldb.lua:13: in function <Interface\AddOns\Broker_TalentSwitch\ldb.lua:13>
Worth noting that it works perfectly fine though.
