Something is screwy with the possession bars.

I just did the quest, "Fringe Science Benefits" and when switching from Anti-Aircraft, to Bombing, to Engineering (the different functions of the bomber) the possession bar would disappear.

Last night I was doing the "Thrusting Hordir's Spear" quest and the same issue.

I haven't been in strand to see if things are the same there. I'll report back...when I can get in there.

Yup - this advice (directly below) worked. I was worried that because I had logged in and out I'd be in trouble, but it appears that even if you had the new Macaroon version installed and running on say Monday/Tuesday, so long as you follow the procedure below before you log in first with the new WoW patch, all is well. I didn't even need to do the whole copying .lua files - just new patch, with the linked fixed .lua bars file, and I was done. Logged in, all hunky-dory. All paged bars on my druid are working. For now.....

How i got everything working (requires WTF and Macaroon backups)

Luckily i had a recent backup of WTF and all addons and this is how i got everything back to working 100% in a few steps without reinstalling wow or anything drastic like that.

1. Update latest wow patch
2. Replace old backup macaroon addon files
3. Embed the PTR fix either by relacing the string or replacing the single file from the fix download (has been posted so many times here so I trust you can find the fix)
4. Replace all old WTF macaroon files in
4.1. WTF\Account\Accountname\SavedVariables\all macaroon files
4.2. WTF\Account\Accountname\SavedVariables\Realm\Charactername\SavedVariables\all macaroon files
5. Repeat step 4.2 for each character you have
6. Log in and cheer with hands in the air

Lastly i will just give my huge respect to Maul for this amazing mod. I would quit playing wow if there were no mod like it. The flexibility of bar handling, keybinding and long macro's is just so creamy. Intense shoulder patting to you Maul, thanks for your great effort

All arguments about fixes aside, here's what I'm faced with: Macaroon is not functioning.

I concede that I do a couple of things with my macro management that are not optimal: I do not remember to backup, I use a service to remind me and pull updates. However, I know that I am, by far, not alone in this.

I've downloaded the new update and installed it automatically and manually, I've run the PTR patch and I've done it again by hand combing though the .lua file. I've started it with a clean WTF, I've started with the old settings. I've loaded the profile I have saved with different options clicked. In all, I've spent about 4 hours fooling with this.

But it is not working. I can get the empty bars, provided I don't try to load content. But not all of the bars are back. I don't have the bag bar or the menu bar. Honestly, I was using those. I have not rebuilt bars; without the menu and bag bars available, I see no point in trying to rebuild by custom interface of around 100 buttons, about 40 of which were macros. It's simply too much work for a product that is not stable.

I really loved the macro building ability of Macaroon, but had had problems with the pet bar (and know many people that abandoned Macaroon over those), and more problems with situations like Drak'Theron Keep's boss that makes you into a skeleton. Previous to the current issues, I had to disable Macaroon for that fight. Vehicles were a nightmare and they are plentiful in Northrend.

Until Macaroon can be updated with a single download, profiles to be loaded, and with the "additional" buttons I will also abandon this product. I understand that this places a certain burden on the developer, but it is a burden and challenge that other developers meet.

I must take a moment to thank you for the product and the vision that you have created. I have enjoyed it's use for many hours. All I'm asking for is the same functionality that was seen before the patch.

Open Macaroon_Bars.lua in Notepad or another plain-text editor, and search for (quotes included):

"SecureHandlerStateTemplate,SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate"

It's around line 1601, if your editor shows line numbers. If not, it's the only instance of that in the file, so searching is fine. Replace it with (quotes included):

"SecureHandlerStateTemplate"

You may occasionally get an error message, but all functionality will be present, including stances and other state paging. This is working 100% for me on shaman, druid, hunter, priest, paladin, mage, and warrior.

Maybe I'll PM Cairenn and see if I can't get a fixed version uploaded to this page.



Combat paging works for me, at least with custom states. I don't use the checkboxes for "Combat", "Stance", etc, so they may indeed be broken. Try checking the "Custom" checkbox and then entering something like:

[nocombat]
[combat]




Except that Dominos doesn't come close to Macaroon in terms of flexibility and customization for bar layout and paging. And, 255 characters is nowhere near long enough for me to multiply one button into four for much of my setup. Consider this example from my druid:

If in Cat Form and Alt key is down, cast Ferocious Bite; otherwise...
if in Cat Form and Ctrl key is down, cast Savage Roar; otherwise...
if in Cat Form and Shift key is down, cast Main; otherwise...
if in Cat Form, cast Rip; otherwise...
if in Dire Bear Form and Alt key is down, cast Challenging Roar, otherwise...
if in Dire Bear Form, cast Growl, otherwise...
if Alt key is down, cast Starfire, otherwise...
cast Moonfire.


With Dominos (and Macaroon) you get a new page with every stance so your macro would be split over 3 pages. Taking your biggest (Cat) the macro would look something like

/cast [nomod] Rip; [mod:alt] Ferocious Bite; [mod:ctrl] Savage Roar; [mod:shift] Main

I'm no macro expert but I think this is about right and it comes to about 80 characters.

Also confirm erduker says : replace this string, copy/paste with a "neutral" text editor like Notepad++ -- ascii character like darko said are screwing this up at least for me -- this works.
Replace what string? where?

Even the main bar and bag bar? Is that something you have to add manually?

I have been looking but can't find options to create a bag bar or the main bar.
Well, the main bar and bag bar is from Macaroon Xtras addon.

Haven't seen any posted a fix for that yet.
Change log for Macaroon Xtras says a 3.0.8 version is posted, but it's not downloadable.

Macaroon disappearing bars

Could someone please post a working version? On a Mac and TextEdit says not enough permission to save the edited file. Reset permissions, but still not enough. Is it hard to post a working version? Thanks

That was it!!!! great! Thank you very much for this last important hint to me. Its works great.

This is very very very important! Many Users in other communitys only download the new Version, seen that it is broken and go away. I realy hope, that some one can bring macaroon through the next patches in the future, but when only 10 oder 20 people then use it?

(...)

I have even deleted all addon files including all files from WTF folder (actually to be sure I also downloaded a clean copy of MAC 30000.30 and put that into clean copy of WoW that I keep for addon testing). What I got? As I start WoW it seems that MAC is normally working - blizzard bar on bottom and MAC icon by minimap.... But when I try to create any bars and start from nothing simply nothing happens.... I can open main menu and that's actually all I can do...

EDIT - The same happens with clean install of Macaroon 30000.rc.28.1 . Also in Main menu 8 sliders on bottom have no headers anymore. Only low/high and numbers next to slider.

The PTR Fix worked for me. TYVM for fixing this ''dewin'' I have a Profile for all of my chars because it's handy when i change my bars and something goes wrong. I just load the Profile and can start over without having to remake all my bars.

What i did exactly (this was before the Patch for the PTR was up):

I downloaded the new Patch and logged into WoW when i saw ... no buttons After reading the new posts here...

i went to: C:\Programs\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Macaroon

looked for the file: Macaroon_Bars LUA file and opend it with Notepad

in the Notepadfile i clicked on: Edit (at the top, i think it's Edit with the English version, i have the German one so i am not sure) and then on Search

i copied the text: local handler = CreateFrame
from the post and pasted it into the searchfield

when it found the text, i made sure i had the right textline and then just deleted this: ,SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate

don't forget the '' , ''

I saved the file, started WoW and everything was working fine.

Thanks again for taking the time to fix this '' dewin''

greets chesnoeky

I don't know what happens if you don't have a profile, but if you aren't getting an error and just have a blank screen with no bars, you can try here... http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?id=221&a=faq
Also you should still have a minimap button or if you have fubar it will be up there--to create bars.

Edit: The only thing I can think of, if it should start with a main bar and bag bar or what (I can't remember anymore), is that your bars have flown offscreen. However, the keybindings I had do not work (it is using blizzard's bar settings, so I'm assuming that there just aren't any bars anywhere)

If you create a bar it should act as your main bar. FAQ has something about a bags/menu bar (I don't use those). Depending on your class you will have to right click the new bar and check 'stance', and start from scratch.

From what I remember though, macaroon doesn't start with a 'main bar', it starts empty. It won't even look like you have it. You have to create your main bar and disable blizzard's bars in the main menu; and adjust accordingly (stance,page, etc. depending on class)
