Cuz I create a virtual button which can take macros up to 1024 chars, and then change the actual macro to /click <thatbutton>. Poof, gone #showtooltip.

Yes I heard macaroon did this. Hopefully since they're not getting the boot, neither will you. Well I shall try it out and see. Nice work

Besides, you can fit pretty much whatever you want into a combat macro. Longer-macro addons like this are usually best used for chat (tradespam macros, etc).

Bottom line: If you think this is unfair, you should take a look at the other thousand or so addons that do the exact same thing in a less accessible manner.

Not to be a sour puss in any way but isn't this threading in the gray area of tos violation? I thought they limited it cause they wanted to prevent too sophisticated macros and higher possibility of automation.
If it's ok I'd love to try it, but as is, I'm somewhat reluctant.

Nice addon, been looking for one like this for a very long time. How does it work though? Are the macros still stored server side? What happens if I log on with another PC that doesn't have it?
