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

Looks promising... really

I will try that one... hopefully it wont go in conflict with some other mods im using (no interface changes in mine)

I was looking for something that you could customise and this looks like it could be IT !

Hopefully no scripting required and easy setup ...

Downloading tonight

This is almost perfect! I just wish I could still use the default sidebars.

If I add a button to the side bar, it tries to fill a button on bongos bar 1. I really have grown accustomed to using the vertical side bars for trinkets, potions, etc.

Anyway to make these compatible?

Hello!

I want to thank you for an excellent mod. I like it's simplicity while still being configurable, infield is wonderful when getting stuff to sit with its border at edge of screen. As I tried it and played I came up with some suggestions:
  • The numerical timer on the casting is something I don't like, what about adding an option to disable it?
  • What about adding options to scale and set transperancy of casting bar?
  • What about adding an option to disable the cooldown count on buttons?
  • I also use bagnon, which I love, and since pressing a bag opens all it would be nice if there was an option in bongos to only show main bag on the bar. This would buy me some space on screen and take away some unnecessary buttons.
  • Would also be nice if you could lock buttons with the mod so they can't be moved off the bar.
  • Noticed the channeling bar may be bugged. It comes up when you start a channeled spell but when you interrupt it it stays on screen as if you did not interrupt it.

Bongo_Stats - cannot see on screen

The Bongo_Stats panel doesnt show up on my screen - am I missing a /slash command or something to get it to appear?

Thanks...

Bongos_Stats

Bongos_Stats only has a keybinding to toggle its display.

Noticed that sometimes when I grab a spell on the bar to move it it won't let me put it in another slot so I have to ungrab it and take it from the spell book, bag or wherever I got it from to begin with and try again til it works.

Also the numbers counting cooldowns somewhat flicker as they change to next number.

I just love, love, love this mod Tuller.

I also get the problem Repa mentioned.

Does anyone else notice the castbar keeps registering the rest of the cast time even when the spell is interupted or the mob is dead?

Minimal problems for sure, keep up the awesome work!

This is a great mod! It really cleans your screen up and makes things easier! But I was wondering why i cant get the graphic on my character health/energy bar? its the same as the original instead of just the 2 clean bars with no pic like in the pictures you have posted? Is that not included in this mod or am i missing something? Thanks for your help! Keep up the good work!


Edit: I also forgot to ask. On my left extra action bar on the original WoW interface (the one that sits right above your main action bar) I had my sprint, mount, vanish, bloodfury, etc. binded to hotkeys. When i downloaded thismod, my primary action bar stayed binded but the others i cant seem to bind to a key? Sorry if these are noob questions, this is my first mod download

That is another mod. Not sure which, only thing that is almost like it I can think of now is AceLucenFrames.

Bongos_Stats

How do I get the Bongos_Stats option to appear?
If there is a specific key binding I can't find it so please someone let me know what it is.

There's a keybinding you can set for it in the keybindings menu. Personally, I have mine set to ctrl-r.

You might need to unlock the buttons. Type /bg to bring up the options menu, or /bg unlockbuttons. /bg lockbuttons will lock their positions again.
