Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

/petautocaston [nomodifier] Growl

This is much better than manually toggling my growl and cower.
Good to hear you have a work around. If you figure out what is happening, though, let me know

Re: Cooldowns and Debuffs

Originally posted by tielc
Ok, so I love this mod, as I did Trinity, so first, major thanks to Maul for putting this together. No my question, and I think it's a bit of a double edged sword. I like using the bar mod to track both cooldowns as well as debuffs, however there are some abilities I find a bit challenging to work with. I play a warrior and a shaman, and the abilities are those that have shorter cooldowns than their defuffs. The specific abilties being Flame Shock, Frost Shock, Stormstrike and Mortal Strike. A lot of times these abilities are off from cooldown, but reaction tells me to wait for the timer when choosing what to use next, hence I miss out sometimes and get killed stuck behind the global cooldown before I realize my mistake. Any ideas on this? Should I use a seperate mod for bebufs and cooldowns, or one, and leave Macaroon to manage the other?

Again, Maul, thanks for the great mod and support. Kudos to the Fubar addin!
Right now the buff/debuff option is global. I might be able to make it per-bar, maybe per button. Make a feature request on my portal to remind me to look into it. For right now, your suggestion seems best for what you want to do.

How do I set a bar to open only if I am flagged PvP OR if I am in a Battleground?

I have certain macros I use only in those instances and I want it hidden the rest of the time.

Thanks.
That feature is not in right now, it may show up in near future version.

Re: Button Grid When Mounting

Originally posted by Nithrandel
I downloaded the new version, 30000.28 rc, and now when I mount up, the button grid (that I have set to not show) shows itself once the mount appears. Dismounting does not remove it. Toggling the minimap button will make the grid go away. This happens whether I click the button on the action bar or from the Mount menu in the Character info window. If I toggle the minimap button to remove the grid while mounted, when I click to dismount, the grid comes back again.
Me too.

I'm sorry, but what happened.

Huge fan of Trinity Bars, it had some very neato options.

Macaroon doesn't live up at all; I've tried for a week now, and it's just eminently frustrating, while I have yet to see any improvements from the change.

1) Your older interface was more intuitive. This one feels gimmicky.
2) Holy glitches batman. Every time my druid gets a new form and I try to bind things - and it seems occasionally when I make lots of changes - the bar explodes on me and all the bindings get shuffled or often nullified. Especially on a PvP server, this is not fun.

Please go back to updating Trinity, this pales in comparison.

Now in the main menu I had set "alt to self cast" is that affecting the pet bar or is the some other reason when using a pet i cannot perform any actions on another piece only on myself, I play a warrior so I can't exactally easily test pets out as well

any help would be good

Re: Missing Pet Buttons

Originally posted by whoischristopher


Thanks for the suggestion. I did that already because having a pet that cannot go on passive would only go to further my reputation as a huntard.

However, my OCD still wants the original Blizzard button back. I was unclear about the post from deep92. Should I post this in the bug section as well?

I apologize for being such a newb here. If these things should go on the bug page what should be posted in Comments?

Thanks for your help, guys!

Christopher

P.S. Playing with color is fun!
Try redownloading macaroon, maybe that helps. And yes, if it's a bug you should report it in the bug section.

But, what was unclear about the post? I just meant that if there's something wrong, look in the bug section (Maybe its there already). If not there already, then post the bug

Maul, nice new avatar btw :P

I can't add my sig cause I uploaded it under a name with sh it in it -_-
