Bongos3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3
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

Bongos3 is a main action bar replacement designed be both powerful, yet lightweight and easy to use.

Have Questions? Check out the wiki first!

Included Addons:
  • Bongos - The core addon.
  • Bongos_AB - The action bar portion of Bongos.
  • Bongos_CastBar - A casting bar replacement. Colors the bar based on if the spell being cast is helpful, harmful or neutral. Also includes a timer.
  • Bongos_RollBar - Makes the dialogs that pop up when rolling on items movable.
  • Bongos_Stats - A movable framerate, latency, and addon memory usage indicator.
  • Bongos_XP -A movable experience/reputation bar.
  • Bongos_Options - A load on demand options menu.

Features
  • Every 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
  • Customizable stance transitions and state visibility for each action bar
  • Buff and debuff highlighting on action buttons
1.3
* Bugfixes

1.2e
* Fixed a petbar error

1.2d
* Updated keybound

1.2c
* Corrected zip file structure

* Added jailborc's XP bar modifications
* Fixed errors with the class bar under the case of a class with no classbar skills.

1.1
* Fixed a bug causing my upgrade code not to run. If you're upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1, please make sure you've set a bar as the possess bar
* Fixed typo

1.0
* The possess bar will now default to the pet bar if no action bar has been set to act as it
* You can now only have one possess bar at a time
* Bongos now fires two Ace3 messages: BONGOS_LOCK_ENABLE and BONGOS_LOCK_DISABLE

Gamma.1
* Fixed some grammar issues

Beta.12
* Fixed a bug causing disabling sticky bars causing bars to move out of place
* Fixed bug causing bindings to clear on a new version update
* Fixed a bug causing bindings to not disable properly when removing a button or loading a profile
* Added an option to show tooltips only in combat
* Slightly tweaked the interface options menu

Beta.11
* Added an option to make the pet bar act as the possess bar
* Made the binding and config mode dialogs movable
* Fixed a bug for new users

Beta 10:
* Added a Page slider to each stance menu, tried to make the bar creation help more informative/noticeable.

Beta 9:
* Replaced the term Action Set with paging, and altered all of the stance sliders to say Page X instead of simply X
* Differentiated Page 1 from the default state of do nothing, called Disabled.
* Changed the format used for creating the right click menu for action bars to be table driven. Take a look at Bongos_AB/actionBarConfig.lua if you wanna edit it.

That's more than likely not a bug. Casting a holy spell will likely take you out of shadow form, and casting a spell when on a mount will likely dismount you and take you out of shadowform, too. Only casting while flying is disabled.

I haven't narrowed this down much, but I have a rogue who is seeing Sinister Strike still ranged-out even after she's in melee; this clears up the instant she uses an ability, but not being able to tell whether something's in range is confusing.

Was testing on 1.0, will test again on 1.1 this evening if I can.

Thank you as always for the amazing work. Bongos has, I kid you not, revolutionized my gameplay. Bongos3 moreso -- with 2, I had a lot of quirks due to an irregularly-patterned keypad.

That is OmniCC.

Other than the keyring, I don't touch the bag bar. So, any addon that would implement that functionality should work.

The reason blizzard shows a maximum of 999 is because if they show more, it has the chance of the text overlapping into the next slot, which would look bad

Err, how does it look abandoned? :P


A minor localization error in Bongos_AB/localization/localization.lua, line 47:
L.ShowEmptyButtons = 'Show Emtpy Buttons'
Should be:
L.ShowEmptyButtons = 'Show Empty Buttons'
Fixed in the development version.

Also, you made some changes to the possess bar, but at least for those upgrading from gamma.1 to 1.0 there is no default possess bar selected, which results in getting neither a pet bar nor a possess bar when we gain control of someone. Maybe you should add a check to see if no bar is enabled to "act as possess bar" and then allow the pet bar to show?
That's a bug My upgrade code decided that it was not going to run The pet bar should be defaulting to the first action bar if it does not run, however.

Thanks kindly for your reply. I thoroughly understand about the keyring and having higher priorities than prettifying the XP Bar. If I can figure out skinning for WoW, maybe I'll give it a shot. I'll take another look at the Wiki and see if I can figure the hack out. I'm no code whiz, but as I read further into all this much of it seems to make enough sense to get through even my slow comprehension.

Far as tooltips go, They do add a quicker comprehension for those of us just experiencing some of the subtleties of game play for the first time. No question you've done a great job of creating a largely self-evident and easy to use interface, but sometimes having your hand held as you're getting your feet wet (excuse the mixed metaphor) helps ease the information overload. I downloaded a variety of mods on the same day after discovering their existence. All of them are beginning to streamline my gaming experience, but figuring out how best to customize some of the more configurable ones can be a bit of a head scratcher even with a well designed and simple to use interface. Took me two days to figure out some of the better applications of Bongos 3 for my own use. A bit more guidance or example presentation would have eased that learning curve. Not a criticism, just a comment from one on the other end of the bell curve from a guy who knows the game inside and out and may think that everyone knows it as well...

Obviously, I think well enough of the mod and of its' author to ask the questions and to respond. Thanks for an amazing mod, and thanks again for the reply and the explanations.

That involves hacking the state menu (there's some information about that at the end of the wiki), and adding in [combat] and [nocombat] after the page states. That way, the page states are checked before the combat ones.

Keyring button will not be able to be altered. I really cannot make the bag bar be able to have its layout altered if I do make it the normal button.

The experience bar, I want to do more with it eventually, but not right now. Anyone can feel free to make a new version of it for me :P

Tooltips - Tip of the day style ones I try to avoid. Everything in Bongos should be self evident. The fact that I need the popup box when in config mode is a failure on my part.
