Some patience, and calm, is in order. The fix posted by others is working, and so there is no reason to panic. Fix your files the way it was described, and I'm sure Maul will be back to make more permanent fixes soon.
I haven't posted anything here yet, but I am still concerned about this. I am concerned because, unlike most mods when they break, Macaroon actually destroys the user's current bar settings, meaning if they don't have a saved copy in their profiles, or they don't have a backup of their WTF folder, they're screwed.

Amusing Overreactions

I am choosing to be amused by the overreactions of a few posters here.

How else should we view those who, within 3 days of a new patch (and with no announcement of a release date for the patch, which is normal), are ready to declare this project abandoned because the author hasn't made an appearance?

For all any of you know, Maul could be on vacation, or have any of a number of other things that are vastly more important in his real life than fixing this right away.

I am a HUGE fan of this mod, I depend on it for my UI as well, but one thing you MUST remember if you are going to the fully customized UI route, is that patches will often break them, and if you aren't able to fix the mods yourself, you should expect to have to wait for the authors to get around to fixing them.

To his credit, Maul has previously been one of the best about doing that in a quick fashion, and yet, only 3 days have passed and people are already calling for someone to take over the project.

Some patience, and calm, is in order. The fix posted by others is working, and so there is no reason to panic. Fix your files the way it was described, and I'm sure Maul will be back to make more permanent fixes soon.

Clearly something extremely serious has happened to or surrounding him. The way I read the latest post seems that the 'patch' has been written by someone entirely different and that the last code Maul worked on was the .28rc version. It would be helpful if the person who wrote the patch, claiming to be a friend of Maul's, would provide a bit more in terms of future expectations beyond simply saying that Maul is now MIA if he is indeed a personal friend and in the 'know'. That Maul is MIA was already clear.

It seems that the time has come for someone else with LUA experience to take over and maintain this mod if it is to continue. For that to happen ethically, Maul or his representative should release the code for adoption. If Maul is not willing or able to do that, then, unfortunately, the package should be withdrawn from availability since Maul has copyrighted sections of the MOD and adopting it without permission is illegal.

Good luck to you Maul wherever you are and our wishes for your happy return.
Amen!

Even if he's not going to work on the mod at all...It'd be just nice to know that.

I am... for the moment, forced to use Bartender 4 because macaroon refuses to work on some of my toons. (Most problems are caused by the macaroon xtras, which don't have a fix.)

I really hope Maul would fix this addon soon, it really is far better than any other action bar mod!

Good for you
But as someone else prompted, I think the update has some other things updated. I don't know what though I did compare the text from 30000.28.1 rc and the update 30000.30 in notepad and found that some lines didn't match completely. I didn't see what the difference was but there must have been something.

Macaroon and MacaroonXtras are separate addons! My way worked with both for me.

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

...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.
Macaroon is till in development I believe. so ofc it's not working 100%. but i think it's pretty close.

Bag bar and menu bar as well as cast bar and XP/REP bars are not part of Macaroon.. it's the MacaroonXtras.. which you still have to update separately from Macaroon.
I've noticed the 30000.12 version of MacaroonXtras doesn't seem to be downloadable from wowinterface site. I updated both my Macaroon and MacaroonXtras with wowmatrix.. still against Mauls advice...

This time i tried installing Macaroon from here but wowmatrix didn't recognize the update. So i let it update as well.
Wowmatrix did find some 30000.12 version of MacaroonXtras(might just claim it is while its not actually) somewhere, I do not know where. After update of both addons I changed the string in the Macaroon_Bars.lua, updated wow and logged in.
I got all my bars including Bags, Menu, Castbar & XP/REP bars where they used to be. And all my spells were in the right Macaroon bars at the right place on the screen the second I logged in, no need to get them from saved profile.

I haven't had time to test possession or pet bars yet but I'd bet they'll work just fine

bugfix

Phanx made a slight error for anyone who have a notepad with line numbers, it's actually at the line 1061 rather than 1601.

Had no issues here with the "fix"

I knew that Macaroon was having issues, so I tried Dominos and Bartender 4 when the patch came out... I tried both of them for a day or so and decided I didn't like either mod's limitations.

So I came back, downloaded the newest "updated" version (I'm still not sure what's actually been updated other than the toc?), applied the "fix" by manually editing the line myself (figured the patch is just changing one line, I may as well just do it instead of downloading another file). I also downloaded the new Macaroon extra and updated what I needed.

FYI, I do not use the XP bar or the roll frame or whatever... the only thing I get from Macaroon extra is the bag and menu bar, I think.

Everything came back and worked just as well as they did before. I did Heroic Oculus, possession bar is working just fine. I raided different 25-man instances, and everything seems to be working just fine there as well. I haven't ran into a situation with pets yet, so I don't know if that's working correctly.

All in all, everything seems to be fine after applying the patch. Reading some of the problems that people are having even with the patch... I really don't understand what's going on. I wish I could be more help, but I just haven't seen any problems at all on my side.

Granted, my usage for Macaroon is pretty "light". The reason why I still prefer Macaroon over other bar mods is mostly because of the presentation. For example:
  • Bartender and Dominos are both limited to 10 bars of 12 buttons each.
  • This limitation is not flexible. Meaning, if you have 9 bars, you can't distribute the buttons from bar 10 to the other bars. The maximum number of buttons each bar can have is always 12, no matter what.
  • Similarly, if you want to have 20 bars of one button each, you can't do it. You can only have 10 bars no matter what.
  • Forms and stances in the default UI are actually "swapping" one bar for another. Since Bartender & Dominos just repurpose the default UI buttons, they are limited by this as well. For example, Rogue stealth form is using Bar 7 to replace Bar 1. You can't get around this limitation. So the more forms you have (Warrior & Druids, for example), the less usable bar you really have.
  • Arrangements and button ID's are not reassignable. For example, my main bar is a 12 button bar with 2 rows. Blizzard's UI always arrange the button ID so that the top row starts with 1, and the bottom row starts with 7. However, I actually use and keybind them in reverse. I consider the bottom row to be my first primary actions, so they're bound 1~6, while the top row is ALT+1~6. Problem is, when the bar swaps to the Possess bar, Blizzard replaces the top row buttons because that's where they think your bar starts. So now the primary possess bar actions are ALT+1~6 as well. With Macaroon, I can edit the button ID's and reassign them manually, so it will replace the lower row of buttons instead of the top row. This sort of flexibility just isn't available in any other bar mod.

What I don't use Macaroon for, are complex target specific spell macros, or any modifier-bound macro execution. So I don't know if those type of things will cause issue even with the fix.

This kind of post doesn't help anyone understand how to help you fix your problem. You MUST say EXACTLY what you did; 'I tried everything' doesn't cut it.

Not picking on you, just trying to make it easier to help you and others who post similarly.
