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

a good feature would be when you click the stats bar, it forces a garbage collection.

heh, u get used to it, seriously
i use it that way:
-) middle finger runs forward or backward (W or S)
-) left small finger hits Shift
-) the finger between these two (2nd from left) hits 1, 2 or 3 to swap between bars

i changed a few of my settings though and managed to avoid using stance bars at all (i'm a priest and used to swap in a bar when shifted to shadow). since these changes (deleted all stance options) the bug is gone. maybe stances add this bug?

Stances

I am a druid and I have followed the instructions on setting up the stances in the Bongos options and it works fine when switching to bear form but when I switch to cat it will not change. I really like this mod but this is supper annoying when i get in a bind and need to switch out to heal then back again to fight. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Unless I am misunderstanding what you want to do, you don't need a mod to move the chat window. Right click on the tab on top of the chat window and select "Unlock". Then drag the tab around.

if i want to change to action bar 2 then i have to stop movement (only forward or backward movement - turning left or right does not cause this issue). is it possible that this is a bug?

I'm having some issues similar to what some have described here, but also slightly different. I believe it's a problem with the fact that I'm using paging and stance changing on one bar, but here's the issue:

I'm a druid, so I have 3 stances that need to be subbed in - Bear, Cat, and Cat (Prowl). These are bars 7-9.

I have one main bar that controls my casting while in Caster form. I use paging to control my DPS casts and Heals. The DPS spells are on Bar 1, and the Healing spells are on Bar 6 which I use paging to control to jump to either of the 2.

Now, what I want to happen is for my stance bars (7-9) to get swapped into my Bar 1 when I shift into my forms, but for some reason this is not happening. What I found ends up happening is that if I page Bar 1 enough times, the stance bar will eventually show up, but it will never just replace what I have on Bar 1 immediately after I shift, which is super annoying. Anyone know what the issue is, or if it's because I've set up paging on that bar that it's not working properly?

So something I've noticed about Bongos. I've been using KLH Performance Monitor and BActionButton100 completely surpasses everything else in terms of processor time used.

For example, in every 30 second cycle, that one button will use up 672 time, while the next highest usage on the list is AceEvent20Frame at 57, and everything else is 12 or less.

Seems like something weird is going on with that button and could be causing an unintended slowdown.

(Even so, Bongos is still more efficient than Bartender3, where EACH button uses around 50 time, then multiply it by the number of buttons... which is definitely noticeable and lowers my FPS by about 5)

Green XP Bar

Okay got it figured out. You'll laugh at this one. while ingame press 'U', look at all your rep bars, one of them will have a gold checkmark on the left side. select this bar and you'll see the option to "show as experience bar". Uncheck that box and you're back to normal. yay

Yeah, or I can not use the Mod. It is very efficient... when it works. One quick move and I have all my traps and melee abilities right there without having to CTRL+Key or ALT+Key or whatever crazy combination of buttons you might use.

My number keys, mostly 1-5, are the easiest to get to and the quickest to hit. I'm already using the keys around wasd for certain abilities and I'd like to be able to switch bars effectively, something that the normal WoW Interface can do... and what I might end up having to go back to =/

So in other words, don't knock until you try it
