Bongos2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.10.1
by: Tuller [More]
I have written a new action bar addon, called Dominos, and am no longer supporting this one. Please feel free to try it out, along with Trinity Bars, and Bartender 3


Bongos is an action bar replacement designed to be both low memory, and easy to setup. It is not as feature rich as other bar mods, but should include the features most commonly used.

Version History
A Brief Guide

Included Addons
  • Bongos2: The core addon.
  • Bongos2 ActionBar: Breaks up the main action bar into movable parts
  • Bongos2 Stats: A display for latency, framerate, and memory usage
  • Bongos2 RollBar: Makes the frame for rolling on items movable
  • Bongos2 CastBar: A movable casting bar, with the ability to show cast time
  • Bongos2 XP: A movable experience bar
  • Bongos2 MapBar: A movable mapbar
  • Bongos2 Options: A dynamically loaded options menu for Bongos

Features
  • Every Bongos bar can be moved, hidden, and have its scale and opacity altered
  • Sticky bars - Each bar can be anchored to any other bar
  • 120 action buttons, which can be setup in any number of bars
  • Both macro and key binding text on action buttons can be hidden
  • Customizable stance transitions for each bar

General Settings
  • To bring up the options menu: type /bongos menu
  • To unlock bars: uncheck the lock bars option in the main options menu
  • To hide or show a bar: unlock bars, then middle click or shift right click it
  • To move a bar: unlock bars, and then click and drag it with the left mouse button
  • To bring up a bar's configuration menu, right click it

Key Bindings
  • Bindings for the Bongos action bar should only be done via the bindings menu in Bongos
  • To bind keys, open the main options panel, and select the bindings option. Hover over a button, then press a key to bind it to that button

Action Bar Settings
  • Accessing general action bar options: open up the main options window (/bongos menu) and select the action bars panel
  • Adjusting the layout of a given bar: unlock bars and right click the bar you want to adjust to bring up its configuration menu
  • Moving buttons: Hold down the key for moving buttons (shift by default), and drag a button. Alternatively, unlock button positions by shift right clicking the mini map button, or unchecking the option in the main options menu
  • Making a bar bigger: You can increase the maximum size of a given bar by reducing the number of action bars. To do so, adjust the action bars slider on the action bar panel of the main options menu. This option will reset the settings of your action bars

Stances and Paging
  • Stances and paging are configured via a bar's right click menu. With bars unlocked, right click the bar you want to change,

Slash Commands
  • All commands start with either /bongos, /bob, or /bgs
  • <barList> can have a possible value of an actionbar number, menu, bags, pet. class, or all
  • You can also specify a group or range of bars, the command /bo scale 1-3 class 1.2 will scale action bars 1 2 3, and the class bar to 120% of their normal size.
  • /bongos - Shows the options menu, if present
  • /bongos lock - Toggles locking bars positions
  • /bongos show <barList> - Shows <barList>
  • /bongos hide <barList> - Hides <barList>
  • /bongos toggle <barList> - Toggles <barList>
  • /bongos scale <barList> <scale> - Sets the scale of <barList> to <scale>
  • /bongos setalpha <barList> <opacity> - Sets the opacity of <barList> to <opacity>
  • /bongos set <profile> - Sets the current character to use <profile>
  • /bongos copy <profile> - Copies all settings from <profile>
  • /bongos delete <profile> - Deletes <profile>
  • /bongos reset - Loads default settings
  • /bongos version - Displays what version of bongos you're running
  • /keybound - Toggles keybinding mode

Thanks

That would be because your tracking a reputation faction. Go into your reputation tab under character frame find a faction with a tick next to it and then deselect it.

Bongos2 - No Default Blizzard Quest Log ver. 1.9.4

I think I just found a small bug in Bongos2 with version 1.9.4... the Blizzard quest log doesn't show up with Bongos installed. I removed Bongos and it reappears... even tried installing bongos as the only mod and still no quest log. I probably wouldn't have even noticed except I was having problems with my quest tracker mod and just trying to simplify.

Also wanted to say that I love your mods Tuller and thanks for taking care of us!

The French translation is completely fucked up: accented characters not correctly shown (the file is probably not UTF-8), untranslated words/strings, texts larger than their frames/buttons, and some badly written words.

Other than that, I love the addon, thanks .

1.9.4

Slight bug.

With the new built in /stopcasting macros, if you spam a spell then it will cancel
the spell early then register with bongos 2 as being interrupted and will change the bar
colour to redand will continue to be red until you stop spamming.


also it might be nice if the cast bar would accommodate for lag similar to the functionality of rapid cast

This keeps bringing up a error for me. I thought it was because I did not have XP bap visable so made it visable and clicked it and now different error I will try again after work. I may have to resort to deleting files in wtf folder

Hello
1st - I love this addon - for good start

2nd - I didn't try 1.9.4 because I'm in work now but with version 1.9.3 I still had problem to make Bongos2 and CowTip work together well. Tooltips are flashing - one near action button anchored with CowTip and 2nd in standard blizzard tooltip location. I had this problem with bongos2 pre 2.3

Solution for that in my case was:
Bongos2_ActionBar\actionBar\button.lua
line 400
if GetCVar('UberTooltips') == '1' then

change into
if GetCVar('UberTooltips') ~= '1' then

After that I had to enabled "detailed tooltip" in wow interface


Can You please fix this issue in next version of bongos2 (or You did it in 1.9.4 - I'll try this today)

You can in 1.9.3.

is this version of bongos2 stable with the 2.3 patch? I am afraid to replace my older version (which seems to be working fine, so far...)
There's no major reason to upgrade unless you want any of the new features. It should be stable enough though.

The FlexBar2 style buff and debuff highlighting feature is, excuse my wording, worthless... youre just adding bloat to your addon.
Flexbar was always a big bag of evil lag and bloat, if you go down that road you will lose alot of users.

On a sidenote, why would anyone want to use their mainbar mod to keep track of buffs/debuffs, when there are much better alternatives for that purpose? :/

I cannot understand this decision, nor will I accept it so
im sticking with the 2.2version until this feature is removed or a more streamlined addon comes around.
The feature has been implemented because its something I find useful for myself. Its really for me to be able to look at my bar, and at a glance, determine what debuffs I need to cast on my target. Yes, you can use a timer addon to achieve the same result, and at the same time be more accurate, but for my needs, highlighting on my bars is sufficient.

The initial implementation was in fact not optimized at all, and not tested in a raiding environment. That's why people had FPS issues, and I apologize for it. The new implementation, however, is very optimized. There should be zero FPS issues with the feature enabled. And as before, there will be zero FPS issues with the feature disabled.

So essentially, if you don't like the feature, just uncheck it in the options menu
