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.

Mouse-wheel Clicks

First, huge thanks to Maul for Macaroon/Ion.
I use macros with [button:3] (mousewheel on my MS mouse) options to vary the macro behavior, is there an opt to let my bars/buttons accept button:3 clicks?
Interestingly, if I when I click button:3 the button frame is highlighted on the down click, but I can never get a button that performs my action on a button:3 click, either up or down.
I've searched through the Ion options, created a new unconfigured bar for testing and compared between action and macro buttons, but I haven't had any success.
Any help appreciated, TIA.

well, one way to figure out for sure which addon it is, is to simply disable all addons, and if that makes it work again, then re-enable your addons, one by one, till it goes away again.


simply put, when the problem resurfaces, then whichever mod you juuuust enabled, is the one causing your issue.


one last thing, when enabling addons, i'd suggest enabling them, not in alphabetical order, but in a most-likely-to-be-the-cause-of-the-issue, to least likely. and, don't worry about finding someone to tell you what that order would be, just go with your gut.


after all, one of the best ways to learn for yourself, is trial and error. (granted, in this situation, it'd be 98% trial and about 2% error, if that much, but still.)

[edit] i have NO idea why it is splitting the quote into two boxes, but i've tried to fix it, and it won't fix. [/edit]

No problem! You're doing something you don't need to do for us, that's something to be thankful about to begin with.

Just chill down if you need it and play, and let us know if there's anything we can do to help you finish this awesome addon. I just can't play with it :P

Cheers!

No problem, Maul! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out. I would venture to say that most of us are just happy that you are still willing and able to work on this crucial addon!

How can I figure out this

I need help
Bear cooldowns are funky atm I have noticed. I think it has to do with the spell being different depending on form instead of being 2 different spells (mangle bear, mangle cat). The only quick fix I have found is to go into bear form and do a /reload. Also applies to Thrash and Swipe.

Ion is still in beta, which means it is not complete yet, and also that it will have some bugs. (not as many bugs as if it were still in alpha, though!)
I'm aware of that, I was just pointing out that a key aspect of the addon (for me) isn't implemented yet, possibly hoping for a response stating if there's any plans to implement it again or if that feature simply won't be put into Ion at all (in which case I would have to find another actionbar addon.)

I just found it a bit strange that the storage area didn't have a higher priority when work on rewriting the addon started, which made me worry that it might have been intentionally left out with no plans to implement it at all.

Appreciate the response though.

This is a bug. I may upload a small update with that fix.
Thank you for the quick reply. I look forward to the finished product, but in the mean time, thank you for all the work you do with this addon. I honestly do not know what I would do without this bar mod.
Looks like this update was never uploaded. Could you maybe tell us what lua file to edit with what code to fix it?

I still run http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/betterextraactionbutton, which continues to work fine and cured the problem (for me at least).

Regarding extra action button

So, long time user (since Trinity) I cant live without these bars! ><

I managed to accidentally delete my extra special action bar that appears during certain fights and quests e.g Ultraxion, and I cant figure out how to create a new one. Its super painful coz its not just a single profile as all my toons share the same setup now with Ion. Ive managed to key bind the extra button through the regular key bind options but it sucks when im doing something for the first time, be that a boss of a quest and i don't even realise I am supposed to be using it.

Anyone able to help me get this button back on its Ion bar please?

Also, Maul thanks for the great work. Im really hoping the next version has separate profiles and Im happy to wait for it until you get all the cool stuff sorted out.


<3
I'm also having trouble with this. Extra action button is not showing when ION is enabled (I know it's from ION since I narrowed it down), and it's also the case with special mechanic stuff (like in valley of the four winds when you have to break wook, planks and rock with the master pandaren. The energy special mechanic does no show up.)

Extra action button is easy to keybind and deal with it, but like it's been said, you can't know IF there is an extra action to push during the fight.

Anyone knows a way around it?
