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.

Does it happen with only Macaroon enabled? Are you using another addon that does something when you mount? If you do, let me know what it is so I can test.

Yup, as per the change notes I added anchor buttons. /mac edit then use the <prev> <next> arrows at the bottom to see the button options.

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.
On the contrary, the Macaroon interface has proven much more intuitive and easy to use than the old trinity one. The macro based buttons are really good, and has none of the problems i faced with trinity, like buttons and bars that nuked themselves for no apparent reason. Simply using /commands makes bar creation and set up and absolute breeze.

Regarding the "grown" minimap icon...same here, for me it's now giant, so I have to disable it for the moment. I use Light'n'Stylish Minimap (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...shMinimap.html) and Minimap Button Frame (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ttonFrame.html), both now are showing a really giant minimap button for Macaroon, as you can see here: http://img91.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mbfku9.png

I have the minimap button thing going too. It's hilarious like, ... it's 3x the size of a normal minimap button on each side. Yes, I have Minimap Button Frame, but I've *never* seen it do that to a button before, and it only does it to Macaroon.

Talking Just to say Thanks.

hello.. big big fan of Trinity,

at first I tried this addon, but I was getting frustrated fast. but like most things I had to give it some time to understand how the macro system worked and how to add and remove bars.

Just like trinity I can't play without this addon. I think your doing a wonderful job, and thank you for making this.

I have not done anything to it. Are you using a minimap addon?

I am sorry you feel that way, but if I were to have re-done Trinity, Macaroon would be it in all honesty. Macaroon is what Trinity Bars 3.0 would have been, configuration and all. So far the positive response has far out-weighed any negative ones. I myself feel Macaroon is much more intuitive than Trinity, and new users seem to pick up Macaroon faster than they ever did Trinity.

Not all addons are for all people. Maybe Dominos or Bartender might suit your needs better. As it is, I do not have the time to tackle a new project on the scale of another bar addon and I am not going to stop on Macaroon. And even if I did, it would be almost identical to Macaroon in look and feel.

I do have a FAQ explaining things in more detail - Of mages, multiboxing and macros...mmm?

Macaroon is the bar addon by Maul going forward.

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.
Does it happen with only Macaroon enabled? Are you using another addon that does something when you mount? If you do, let me know what it is so I can test.

/petautocaston [nomodifier] Growl
/petautocastoff [nomodifier] Cower

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
