Re: Macro button issue

Most of the names used in the macro generator are pulled directly from the game, so there is little spell localization that can be manually changed. I've notice that there are a few spells that work when put on the bar but don't show tooltips/cooldowns properly. I think that I've tracked down to how Ion is storing spell data it gets from the game, but I haven't had a chance to dig to deep on what is causing it or how to fix it.

Macro button issue

Hi there !

Just leaved a bug report in the forum.
and i'm gonna leave a copy of it here.

There it is:

So i'm bumping here cause i noticed something wrong/not working.
I play a warrior and often macro spells like this : /use [mod,@focus][@mouseover,exists][]Spell

Using Ion, for ANY spell i macro'ed like this, everything is working fine, meaning the button turns red if my target is out of range, and if i'm pressing a mod key ( as shift ), trying to use the spell on my focus, the button turns red if the focus is out of range.And obviously with the aura Watch option working the same.
i use omnicc for cooldowns.

Well there is a SINGLE ONE exception : Stormbolt

I just CAN'T get any range display on any button with a stormbolt macro.

BUT if i go to blizzard spellbook, pick up the spell and place it in my Ion bar, THERE i can have the stormbolt range showing properly.

After i did that, i just right clicked the button in edit mode and this is what i could read :

#autowrite
/cast coup traumatisant()

And there it is ! i'm french, and in french stormbolt is " eclair de tempÍte", when "coup traumatisant" is an old version of the spell, now disapeared.
The weird thing is that the button actually casts stormbolt correctly.
But no cooldown and no aura are shown on the button.... only range.

IN the same time, if i open the blizzard macro tool, star a new one, then shift click stormbolt in blizzard spellbook to "autowrite" his name in my macro it wil write : /lancer eclair de tempÍte
which means : /cast stormbolt.

So i think some where in Ion there's a wrong spell id or name ( in french at least ) for Stormbolt.
"Coup traumatisant" should be removed, and replaced by "Eclair de tempÍte".

I would really really appreciate if i was told where to edit which file in order to see the stormbolt spell working properly.

Well... i'm not sure about my theory lol, but maybe you guys can help...

Thank you !

And... HUGES GG's : Since Trinity button your work is just awesome.

As for the question about profiles. Yes, I hope to add them, but I don't have a eta. I'm learning the Ion code as I go, so its going to be a while until I get a good enough understanding to do something as complex as profiles.
It's all good, it's just something that I had hoped for ( Profiles ) since my first days of using this addon back when it was called by a different name ( I can't remember back that far, I have used this since it was first introduced and love it over all others still! ). I do appreciate all the hard work you're putting into this.

My question is, do you think there will ever be a Profile system put into Ion? I know it would be really good for dealing with multiple characters, especially those on other realms.
There was a fix for this that was mentioned awhile back. You have to edit the the ION.TOC and move some of the variables from the global saved variables list to the character list. I think I've done that with the IONGUI.toc as well. I've been able to have unique bars for each toon without problems after this tweak. As far as profiles go, my workaround is to copy the .lua files in the WTF folder to the new character. There is some cleanup since you won't have the same spells, but the layout should be there. It also helps to make backup copies of the WTF folder every few months to have something to restore from which I've had to do this week.

Like most of us, I swear by this addon and am grateful to those working to maintain it.
Please fix it so I can use it on my cat druid.

It glitched on some of my toons also. And I have troubles changing the number of buttons on some bars for those glitched toons.

I thought something was wrong so I deleted all Ion* lua files in SavedVariables, but I still have the same issue. Any idea ?

So for some reason I can't add my mounts to where they're quicker to access ( I have a 3 button bar made just for the 3 main mounts I use regularly ).
As mentioned below the Hydrogen-10 version does not work with mounts and mini pets. Use the updates via the Github link which does have the updated code for it. I'm hoping to be able to push a new official version tonight that includes that version's update.

Just uploaded Hydrogen-10.1 which contains the updates from GitHub and a few new fixes.
Thanks for all the hard work....

@Sslith: I'd say use mine. The just a quick look at the Hydrogen 10 that just uploaded only bumped the toc and commented out some of the lines that were causing the errors, no fixes to them like in my version. Using the new H-10 version I'm completely unable to drag mounts or pets to my bars and there is only a small number of icons available when trying to use the button edit feature. It also really depends on if we are going to be getting more regular update from Maul. I currently have a list of bugs that I still plan on fixing.
I suggest you submit a pull request to Maul's Ion on GitHub, and in the mean time, I'll be using your fork. I hope Maul supports your fixes upstream. If not, I'd personally be glad to continue following your fork indefinitely.
