Fishing Buddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.4b

Fishing Buddy
-------------

Yet another fishing support add-on.

Support thread: Fishing Buddy

Features:
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or
the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Full Titan Panel support
- myAddOns support
- Preliminary support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin
Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

There are two actual add-ons -- the second one, OutfitDisplayFrame,
handles the pretty pane to set up your fishing outfit (it's next on
the list to be made into something more general that anyone can use).
The OutfitDisplayFrame addon can be safely left out if you have a
preferred equipment manager.

alt-clicking on an item in your outfit display will clear it

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit,
it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ
Updated from duplicate postin: HERE.
Check there for updates if this falls behind.

Thanks to the authors of:

TackleBox -- still adding cool features to keep up with!
Impp's Fishing DB
QuickWeaponSwap

and many, many others!

Feel free to send comments to Sutorix on the Windrunner server.

Installation
------------

1. Unzip the 'FishingBuddyVERSION.zip' file
2. If your unzip program allows you to specify a location, then
unzip it into the "Interface/AddOns" folder contained in your
WoW folder (the location that WoW was installed)
3. If your unzip program doesn't let you specify the destination,
then find your WoW folder (where it was installed) and drag
the 'FishingBuddy' and 'OutfitDisplayFrame' folder into the
'Interface/AddOns' folder.

Version 1.4b
- Get my act together with respect to watch window location (thanks Grizzly_UK!)

Version 1.4a
- More work on keeping the watcher visible and onscreen (using LibWindow)
- Handle version changes and per-player settings correctly
- Fix an issue with LibTourist where it doesn't check for esMX

Version 1.4
- Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE
- Remove invalid frame reference in watcher window (Curse #229)
- Add "/fb fishdata reset" to clear out all fish location data (#127)
- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

Same here and judging from the dates of files in 0.9.9c and the dates on comments here and on Curse, I think I need at least 0.9.9d to fix the lures and pole bonuses feature!

Fishing Buddy works correctly with only 1 out 3 toons

[this is an update of the comment I posted yesterday at curse.com]

I have the 0.9.9d Beta 2 installed (from curse.com), along with the Merge Data, Tracking, and Outfit Display addons. I've found that FB is severely disabled for two of my three toons (I rarely use them), a Warrior and a DK. At the moment FB is only working correctly on my main toon (with one exception, see below), a Hunter. Back before Blizz's first 4.0 patch FB was working fine for all three of the toons, now it isn't. Normally I'd say it's an addon interaction problem, but all three toons use the exact same addons.

After checking I discovered that FB_OutfitDisplayFrame.LUA is not being created in the two toons SavedVariables folder, and even if I copy it to the folder manually FB ignores it for those two toons. In addition, when I bring up FB's Display/Options panel only the Tracking and Options tabs are displayed, none of the other normal tabs are there, so no Watch list, Outfit Display etc.

For the two affected toons, in the Options panel itself the only Outfit choices shown are Equipment Manager and None, the OutfitDisplayFrame option is completely missing. Additionally, for all three toons, if I choose the Equipment Manager option the FB_Temp macro is created, but it only works to switch to your fishing gear, it won't switch back to your melee gear. To get back to your normal melee gear you have to manually swap out the gear items.

I completely uninstalled the addon and deleted all SavedVariable LUA files in case the LUA files had become corrupted. It didn't change anything though, as after doing a complete fresh install it's still only working for only one of my three toons. Luckily, the one toon it's working with is also my main toon. On the bright side though, at least double-click auto casting is still working on all toons.

It beats me why it's working right for only the one toon but not the other two. Other than that, there's not much more I can tell you as there are no LUA errors being generated, which is not much help in tracking down what's going wrong.

This only has a single "Fishing Buddy" folder. Can we now delete all the other folders that used to come with FB, or are they still necessary?

They weren't necessary even back then. FB and possibly the FB_Broker is all you really need.

Well, do I need it? What about OutfitDisplayFrame, MergeDatabase, and TrackingFrame?

FB_Broker is part of Fishing Buddy -- Bar Support.

There are 3 different kind of bar/display addons supported by Fishing Buddy -- Bar Support:
- FB_Broker --> LibDataBroker (LDB) Display addons (examples: Bazooka, ChocolateBar, DockingStation, Fortress)
- FB_Titan --> Titan Panel
- FuBar_FishingBuddyFu --> FuBar

For more info about LDB addons check here.

So if you don't use any of these 3 bar/display addons, it's pointless to install them.

FishingBuddy seems to work fine here, the only small issue i have is when closing the FB options screen there's still some small part of the window visible on screen.



I use FishingBuddy-v0.9.9eBeta3.

FB_Broker covers all three. No need for the zoo.

I had the same issue with my FPS dropping even with all my other addons disabled. I found that turning off the Show elapsed time option would stop my fps from dropping.

An interesting changelog from the SVN/dev build of Auctioneer I'm using/testing you might want to look into for future revisions of FishingBuddy.

Its build 5030 of Enchantrix here from today (Dec. 1). You only get to see the changelogs using a SVN client, of course: fixes [ENX-137] add safety code to our tooltip handler to avoid problems with malformed tooltips from the FishingBuddy addon.

The FishingBuddy v0.9.9e betas on Curse attempt to address that problem. A shame he doesn't put them up here as well.

Seem to be missing two features

There seem to be two features that I'm missing now when I use FishingBuddy.
  1. I use to be able have FB put out a random pet when I fish. I can't find that choice in the options page anymore.
  2. FB used to tell me how many fish I'd caught since the last time I had a skill up. Since my DK is now at 357 fishing, this gets to be important.

Any idea about these? Did they go away? Do I have something misconfigured?

Thanks,
-Torin

Outfit Swap?

After being gone from WoW for awhile, FB is one of the few addons I've found I actually miss. Everything seems to work fine.. except the outfit switcher. With the new Equipment Manager I see no need for mods like ItemRack anymore and in the FB options selected the EM as the outfit switcher. In EM I have a "Fishing" outfit that's only my fishingpole and hat, ignoring everything else. After I change the minimap icon to "Click to Switch", I can use it to equip my fishing outfit, but when I click again, it doesn't swap back to what I was wearing before putting my fishing gear on.

Is this working as intended or a bug? It used to swap in and out of fishing gear back when the outfitdisplayframe came with FB.
