This mod requires Bongos 2

Description

This package is made for Bongos users. It allows a better personalization of your minimap and adds some extra bars to your interface.


Included Addons
  • Bongos Skinned Map - an 'extended ' version of Bongos Map Bar
  • Bongos Quest Bar - movable and customizable quest watch and timer bars
  • Bongos Durability - A movable and customizable armor durability bar
  • Bongos BG - PvP related Bongos bars
  • Bongos Clock - A simple and movable clock
  • Bongos Coordinates - Movable coordinates system


Features Sample
  • 10 minimap borders
  • Hide/move any minimap buttton
  • Minimap title general configuration
  • Hides newbie minimap tooltips
  • Quest levels
  • Armor durability percentage
  • And much more...


Precautions!
  • Always use newest Bongos2 version
  • Disable Bongos Map Bar, because Bongos Skinned Map is incompatible with it. You can't load them at the same time and doing it will cause Bongos Skinned Map to be automatically disabled.


Bug Reports

When reporting bugs, please mention witch WoW, Bongos and Bongos Skinned Map version you are using and witch addons you have enabled. Don't forget to describe exactly what you are experiencing and to report the bug at my portal.


Bug Reports - Make Sure
  • One of the addons included in this package is causing the bug, and not any other Bongos bar
  • The bug you are experiencing isn't covered by this FAQ
  • If the addon causing the bug appears to be Bongos Skinned Map, then also make sure the 'original' Bongos Map does not have the same bug (if it has the bug, report at Bongos2 page).
Version 7.3
  • New: Capture Bar (Bongos BG), Bongos Clock and Bongos Coordinates
  • Map: Removed clock code (because now is useless)
  • Map: More intuitive error messages
  • Quest: quest log check icons should be finally correctly placed
  • Quest: Main code improvements
  • Durability: Updated Collision Lib
  • BG, Quests and Durability: Now you may stick the bars side by side, because they will dynamically change their width when hided and locked (easier to understand if you try it by yourself)

Bugs

I love this mod and I really want it to work but I've found a few things since updating to your most recent version.
It was working fine when I first installed but as time went on a few things started to happen. Upon logging in, on occasion, my bars do not load (yes, they are the most current version of Bongos and yes, of course they're always enabled). I tried to open my options panel by right clicking the Bongos mini map icon and get nothing. To get them to load I had to completely shut down WoW and restart. I can go from one character to another where it was working fine for one but not for the other.
I've also been having problems with my mini-map gatherer icon (Find Herbs, Find Minerals) not showing up. It's there, I die or portal and it's not there any longer. I try to put it back up and it doesn't work, won't show.
On occasion, I lose my casting bar. Again, I can portal or log in a different character and it just doesn't show up.
Yes, everything is enabled for every character... bars, casting bar, mini map icons.
To test, I disabled my Bongos Skinned Map and everything works fine. <cry> Fix it, please?

This is a lame excuse.

There is no need to be in RAID/PARTY to make OMEN work. OMEN works by itself.
So you can test this and get us a fix. The download and unzip. Takes 3mins maybe.
Also OMEN can run with KTM.

I and many others can not use your mod due to this issue.

Yes, I would not need a party to use OMEN.
But the problem seems to be that the party threat bars don't work when Bongos Skinned Map is enabled. And without a party I can't reproduce the problem and figure out what is happening.

I'm working on this, trying to fix the problem as soon as possible.
In the meantime, any detailed report about the conditions where the problem occurs will be of great help.
Also, if any UI Bugs window appears when you are playing, please send me the text of the error message.

Thank you.

PS: please don't report bugs here, do it in my Portal

Smile Omen Troubles?

I see a new version posted since the comments, but no mention of Omen in the History... Is it too much to hope that `important bugs fixed' included the Omen problem?

I was using this mod yesterday (along with Omen), and noticed that while I could see data for most of the party (including one KTM user), I could not see anything from the MT. Was that the Omen problem people were seeing, or have I done something strange?

Thanks for the mod, btw... it perfectly fit what I was looking for! Let me know if I can help debug.

Quest timers/objectives

I prefer to have my minimap in the bottom of my screen, however this makes my quest tracker invisible since it falls of the screen. Any chance you could add the ability to move the quest tracker and other things attached to the minimap?

No you haven't done nothing wrong. That is the bug I'm trying to fix.

FYI for those experiencing missing Threat from Omen, while using this mod, it's not this mod's problem. My wife and I do not use this mod, yet we occassionally have problems where we can't see each other's threat via Omen (by occassionally, I mean, it happens if I'm on my pally, and she's on her mage, if we play any other combination, threat works fine, other people experience apparent incompatibilities with mods that should have no impact on a threatmeter)

The Omen/Threat people are aware this bug exists and, as of yet, been unable to track down a cause, and since they can't find out what's causing it, they can't fix it... If enabling this mod -always- breaks omen, then perhaps the Omen/ThreatLib people should be made aware they have a way to make it always break, and maybe be able to squash this thing for good.

No need to harrass the map addon author for a known bug in Omen.

Dowload the mod- and its not even letting me copy to my interface folder. This is actually a problem I originally had over the last few months.

I dowload unzip, I see MAC OSX Folder and file and BONGOS2 Estended map folder and file and thats it. I can not copy the folders or the contents to my interface folder. One of the files that does copy over is .ds_store and thats it. No other mod gives me this problem, and has for some time. Also sorry this is the only place I am going to post this as I have no time to go to another location good luck on this I will continue to keep trying to install it.

Yes I have disabled BONGOS2 Mapbar, removed it completely from the WOW folder. Even tried resetting the WTF file, nothing.

The problem is that you didn't moved the Bongos_ExtendedMap folder to the addons folder. The strange files are from the mac finder system and are invisible in any mac. Just move the Bongos_ExtendedMap and the Bongos_QuestBar folders to the addons folder and delete all the other files

It was really late when I figured it out- its never happened before with other mods but seemed really strange. When I tried to move the right folder to the correct wow folder it would say it couldn't find a specific folder then I looked closely and I finally noticed that if there was a localization folder there was also another file by that name- honestly it was truly strange, once I saw that I got it figured out and it works fine no errors.

I honestly can't say what happened but if you'd like I can send you a screen shot of what the files and folders look like when I unzip them.

Probably more a me issue than a you issue. BTW great having the quest timer now and option to move the quest tracker box- thumbs up on those, keep it simple keep it light!

Yes, a screen shot would be great.

same problem as mojo

I'm having the same problem as the poster below. A screenshot won't really help. All that happens is that a box comes up that is entitled "Error Copying File or Folder: The system cannot find the file specified." You click ok and it stops copying the folder.

I downloaded the file, unzipped it, opened the folder entitled "Bongos Skinned Map - 7.1" and attempted to transfer the extended map and QuestBar folders to my addons folder. Both folders come up with this error.

If I go in and copy each individual file and folder everything works except a file called "localization." It is that file that is causing the error.

Edit: Just to specify, it is not the folder entitled "localization" that is causing the problem but is the file (0kb in size) at that same level that is causing the problem.
