Ion for WoD

You can download the WoD updates for Ion via my GitHub fork of Maul project : Here This link will always have the most up to date version.

It works for both the PTR and Beta realms and appears to be function as well as it currently does on live. If you do find an issue then please post it on the GitHub issue tracker Here, so the comments don't get to cluttered and to make it easier for me to track.

Yeah! Thank you!

Thank you for having a look at this invaluable add-on for use in the new expansion and providing a status update.

I've been a Macaroon / Ion user for a quite a long time and dread the thought of having to replace my main add-on.

I've got the PTR client available (sadly no beta key) if there is a chance I can help test any releases.

That's great news. Thank you for maintaining this addon - the convenience and function it provides is outstanding.

I also discovered BAB Bars (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=22784#info).

The author, Duugu, has been adding functionality for me upon request. He also already has a WoD version in progress. This seems like something to use in conjunction with another action bar addon - at least at this point (no replacement for the vehicle, pet or possess bars), but it will let you make straight, arced and round bars of the size/number of buttons you desire, you'll be able to set a wide variety of bar states, and they do not use any of the default Blizzard action bar slots (aka buttons are "macro based"). It also has masque support.

[Edit: Helps for clarity if you avoid calling WoD "MoP" by accident.....Edit 2: He's added an amazing variety of options for showing/hiding/changing the bars!]

I am in the process of creating a new UI so I can switch to Bartender4 (if I must), and I recently discovered (and love) Select, but I can't find an addon called "macro extender" beyond an old, defunct one (from 2010) - and that didn't actually extend the allowed length of macros. Where can I find the macro extending addon you are using?
I use Macro Toolkit at the moment. Another one would be KayrMacro (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info22888) but this is alpha. I hope that will be developed soon, it looks very interesting and could be the missing link to ion for some kind of profiles.

I changed Ion to support spells with multiple charges (like Warlock's conflagrate). In case of such spells it's nice to know when 2nd charge will appear, so Ion should show a cooldown timer always when you have less than maxCharges.

File to be changed: Ion_Buttons.lua

replace the following function:

Code:
function BUTTON:MACRO_SetSpellCooldown(spell)
	local start, duration, enable, charges, maxCharges, chStart, chDuration

	spell = (spell):lower()

	if (cIndex[spell]) then

		--local companion, index = cIndex[spell].creatureType, cIndex[spell].index
		charges, maxCharges, chStart, chDuration = GetSpellCharges(spell)		
		start, duration, enable = GetSpellCooldown(spell)
		
		if maxCharges and charges < maxCharges then
			start = chStart
			duration = chDuration
		end
	elseif (sIndex[spell]) then

		local spell_id = sIndex[spell].spellID

		if (morphSpells[spell_id]) then
			charges, maxCharges, chStart, chDuration = GetSpellCharges(morphSpells[spell_id])	
			start, duration, enable = GetSpellCooldown(morphSpells[spell_id])
			if maxCharges and charges < maxCharges then
				start = chStart
				duration = chDuration
			end			
		elseif spell_id then
			charges, maxCharges, chStart, chDuration = GetSpellCharges(spell_id)	
			start, duration, enable = GetSpellCooldown(spell_id)
			if maxCharges and charges < maxCharges then
				start = chStart
				duration = chDuration
			end
		end
	end

	if (duration and duration >= GDB.timerLimit and self.iconframeaurawatch.active) then
		self.auraQueue = self.iconframeaurawatch.queueinfo
		self.iconframeaurawatch.duration = 0
		self.iconframeaurawatch:Hide()
	end

	self:SetTimer(self.iconframecooldown, start, duration, enable, self.cdText, self.cdcolor1, self.cdcolor2, self.cdAlpha)

end

I do appreciate your help here by the way. Is there any kind of player written guide showing the details of Ion's settings anywhere?

Edit: So I just noticed I was using v7 not the most recent v9. It looks like the extra action button is no longer dependent on the Pet Bar Module. So it should be active with just the core Ion Addon. Try the steps below to see if you can manually add it again.

I don't think that there is any good guide anywhere. I know about this issue because I helped someone with it 5 or 6 pages back. If the Extra Action Bar is not showing, here is how to manually recreate the extra action bar.


1. Open the Ion Bar Config window: Left click on the ION icon, then right click on any bar.
2. Check to see if you have a "Extra Action Bar 1" in the list of bar names in the Ion menu. If so skip to step 7
3. If you do not see that bar type this command: "/ion create extrabar".
4. A new bar should appear, right click on it while still in the Bar Config Mode
5. With the bar selected type this command: "/ion vis extrabar 0 hide"
6. The following should be printed in the chat window:

0: No Extra Bar - Hide

1: Extra Bar - Show

This sets the bar to only show if there is a ability associated with it.
7. With the Ion Bar Config open and the "Extra Action Bar" selected, click on the right arrow to set the button Count to 1.

This should allow you to now use the Extra Action options when available. If the Extra Bar does not hide after leaving the config mode, try reloading/relogging and it should be hidden until active.
Well I did figure out something, didn't know I had deleted the "Extra Bar" on my original installation, but I must have. When I did the reinstall of all my addons recently, including Ion, it showed up. All is good now! By the way, thanks for all the input and help!
