Hi - as of two days ago I have started to have the same probs as mentioned below. I have the Alert bars set up and they used to allow me to loot (need/greed/de) as normal.

I had a single profile "Prof1" set up for my toon which I used for each set of talents (I had two variations on an Arcane theme).

Only thing I have done differently in last few days is to change my second talent tree completely and set up a new profile that switches in when I change. To be precise I enabled profile switching, made a copy of the first profile "Prof2", switched talents, moved the new spells to the action bars, and resaved the profile "Prof2".

Ever since I've done this I cant loot greens or blues in a group. Only way to get loot was for an understanding player to trade me - or for me to log out, disable adds (I disabled all) and come back in with clean UI

I've now disabled Macaroon Alerts with all other addons enabled. Will see what happens

Not sure if this info helps.

Bones.

If a clean install and a clean startup of the module(new saved variables) don't work by itself with Macaroon there's a problem I am unaware of with your versions. However, if it works with Macaroon alone, then you must have some addon that's interfering with Macaroon, which seems to me to be more likely since it has never faltered to work for me.
I couldn't get the alert bars to work no matter what I tried. The consistent symptom is that the standard loot bars appear but I am unable to greed/need. So, I removed the Macaroon Alert module and all is well albeit without Macaroon Alerts.

I haven't tried completely removing Macaroon and reinstalling it, or disabling all addons except for Macaroon. Either would involve a lot more experimentation than I am currently willing to do. But, I'll let you know if I learn anything more.

Any other ideas? I'm sorry to be such a bother, but this is pretty annoying, and solving the problem seems to me at least to be much more difficult than it needs to be. I love Macaroon. I've been using it for ages, and would like to keep using it.

If so, remove, delete, uncheck...
Also delete your Saved vars for your Alert bars and if necessary recreate the bars.

Not sure how to handle this.

I think it happens after creating a new profile for an existing char and switching back and forth between the profiles. Not sure tho.

And this is strange too:
When I create an Alert Group, then I make it with 5 buttons...the 5th is the Dungeon alert.
But when I look later in the config window at the bar list on the left, then I see a SEPERATE Dungeon alert with 1 button AND a SEPERATE Loot alert with 4 buttons.


Then I havea request:
Could it be possible to show the name of the profile loaded?

If you have as you say a separate bar for loot and dungeon alert bar listed there is the possibility that those two bars might just be outside the screen.
Mark them in the list and go
/mac x 0
/mac y 0

If they really exists they should now be moved to the middle of the screen and you can delete them. You should also check if you got them in the bar storage.

It shouldn't be a problem but it might be that one bar(the one not visible) could grab the lootbars and populate the buttons hindering the 5 button one to do so.

My observation is that is has something to do with dual spec settings not working properly for the alert group... investigating further, keep tuned.
Just read your post again and thought to myself.. why didn't I see that before?

You're saying you still got old Macaroon addons installed?
Like MacaroonLoot?

that's the kind of thing that would interfere and mess up the new Macaroon, Delete saved vars and folders for those addons.
After doing that you might have to also delete your Alert bars saved vars to get it to work.

If you all are using profile swap on spec change I guess it'd have something to do with that feature. I can only suggest removing and readding the loot bar and it's buttons. Save profiles before between and after to realy make sure it gets the change.

Other than that I guess Good Luck is in order.
there is always the option to backup and and then delete the Macaroon LUA saved variables for the character with the issue, and rebuild that character's Macaroon interface from the ground up.

or, if you like, you could send a copy of those saved variables for Macaroon (again, for that one character only) to someone like Maul or Dwargh.

sending them to me, on the other hand, is probably a waste of time and effort, i am always swamped with my college homework, and more and more often, i use WoW as a way to talk to people who have offered to give me advice on coding projects (me == computer programming major) whenever i get stuck, instead of using WoW as a game.

For my below post, I did not test in a dungeon yet >_>
What I did was make sure it showed up in edit mode because that was my problem.

Yeah weird is the word, For me it so far has worked perfectly since I deleted all old Macaroon Addons and their saved vars.

Think the problem is localizing the problem, which one pretty much have to do before fixing it.. and as it happens seemingly sporadic it's hard to know what causes it and therefor hard to fix.
I think I found a temporary solution when I started using macaroon from bartender4 again *hides* (ran out of macros for my dual spec)

Obviously no one wants to delete their saved variables and re-do their bars right?

Log onto your character
Go to the profile in Macaroon or whatever for when you have a working set of Loot windows with Macaroon (Assuming atleast one of your characters/profiles has it working, if not maybe a new character?)

Log out.

Set this file to read only (right click file-->properties--> check read only)
\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SERVERNAME\CHARACTERNAMEl\SavedVariables\MacaroonAlerts.lua

Make a backup copy of it somewhere.
What this does is lock in the settings of the data of the loot bar, so the information will not disappear.

Log back to whatever character/profile you need it on

The loot bars should now be working. If it didn't work for same character different profile, try (with the same working macaroonalerts.lua file still locked in from before) logging out with the broken profile and logging back in. It should work now. And you can unlock the file if you wish so that it updates your settings in the future.

Notes: I noticed the problem on one character, I updated all my macaroon addons, readjusted my bars,
noticed I am in the wrong profile for the spec, then switched to a different profile.
I start looking around for the loot bars, tried relogging, etc... Only the first profile you first logged in with Alerts addon would show up... Other profiles... are screwed until you use the above possible solution. [coming from a person who hasn't used macaroon since 3.3.3 or 3.3.5 or something]
