to anyone having issues with Macaroon atm...

as i said in the subject, this post is to anyone having issues with Macaroon atm.

you might try reading the following thread Maul started (and, he had posted a link to this thread on the Comments section for Macaroon, on 12-02-2011, 11:28 PM)

Loot not showing up

Im having an issue when i use the profile switching feature. Every time i do swap specs and change profiles, my loot no longer shows up. Deleting the MacaroonAlerts.lua and the lua.bak and relogging will bring it back. Kind of annoying to do every time though.

Well if you're using Profile switching the bar itself should not have spec swapping. This shouldn't be possible to turn on after you've set up to change profiles.

I think easiest way to change this is by editing your saved vars.
Open:
WTF\Account\[AccountName]\Saved Variables\MacaroonProfiles.lua
WTF\Account\[AccountName]\[Realm]\[Character]\Saved Variables\Macaroon.lua
WTF\Account\[AccountName]\[Realm]\[Character]\Saved Variables\MacaroonAlerts.lua

Search for
Code:
["dualSpec"] = true
and change it to
Code:
["dualSpec"] = false
This will change any and every bar from dualspec enabled. and also set the default bar option to disabled, as should be.
Also to make completely sure you can do the same for their respective .lua.bak file, or move/delete the bak file from their folder.

If this still doesn't work Delete the MakaroonAlerts.lua and .lua.bak files from your characters saved vars. Log in to game and go /reload UI and then load your profile manually.

If that doesn't work either. I just have no clue.

Perhaps there's just something with the loading/loading time of the new layout that isn't done properly/in right order.

Other then changing the size of the loot buttons and changing them from the default 1 column by 4 rows to 2 columns by 2 rows I haven't made any other changes to the loot buttons.

[/b]
If it helps, I'm using the following macro to switch specs:

#showtooltip [spec:1]Concentration Aura;[spec:2]Devotion Aura
/equipset [spec:1]Heal; [spec:2]Tank
/usetalents [spec:1]2; [spec:2]1

Which when I click it, changes to the spec I'm not currently in and equips the appropriate gear set.

Under Macaroon Profile options, I have "Enable profile switching upon spec change" checked and I filled in the profile names I want used for each spec in the boxes below it. Those are the only options I have changed from defaults. When I had the Alert module installed the only thing I messed with was its position on the screen. I didn't change any of the default options for the alert bar.

Prior to that, no issues, and still no issue on my Death Knight, which has only one spec configured. I'll keep an eye on this and disable Alerts module until it's fixed. I can't afford to lose out on potential upgrades, and I can easily live with the default Blizzard alerts.

Edit: /console reloadui and deleting the cache folder didn't fix this for me (tried that first)
2nd Edit: Disabling the Alerts module resolves the problem for me, so there is definitely something wonky going on with this module.


You say it's only on your character with dual spec, Are you using the profile swap or the baroption for the spec change?
Or is it even possible you had the loot bar set to change on spec change (bar option) and then checked the profile swap option?

I would say in either case the loot bar should not be set to change on spec( the bar option should always be off) as there is no need for it to change.


you can check this by either go through your Saved Vars of the bars end see if its on in the code.
or simply deselect profile swap (if it's on) then get in bar edit mode and rightclick the loot bar to see if the option's on.

You will not see the option if the profile swap is checked. but it might be the bar change is still on.
This could be why it acts this way and in that case be a coding miss by Maul to disable/set the bar option to off if the profile swap is checked.

I have not fond where in the code I could locate if this theory of mine is true or not and therefor not been able to fix it.

Change specs and profile and log out.
Delete your Alerts saved vars again then log back in and save your profile for spec 2.(which is the one that you should be in as you log in.)

Now try changing specs and loot in either spec and see if it works.

I've been trying to determine by switching off individual addons which one is conflicting with my loot alert. Unfortunately this is a long process since it only happens in a group and with loot that needs rolling on (money and greys are fine). Whilst I dont have atlas loot I do have other addons. Unfortunately I couldnt find any addon that seemed to make a difference.

I did notice I had some old config files for Macaroon Loot and I ended up doing a full purge from my wtf folder for all lua's no longer in use. I also purged the Macaroon Alert lua's and deleted the folder from Interface\Addons. I then reloaded Macaroon Alert from new. Please note, when I first had the problem I did a full purge on all Macaroon Alert files but hadnt spotted the Macaroon Loot luas - this didnt resolve the prob hence my original post.

Going back into the game all now seemed to work OK and has been working fine for three-four days. Last night I activated my second talent spec (from the standard Blizz talent pane) for some of the last bosses in HoO. Macaroon applied the correct profile. Unfortunately when the boss went down I wasnt able to loot. I could see the loot on the boss (not via the Alert window) but couldnt select need/greed/disenchant. Gave the me same message as before "That loot is already being rolled for"

I flipped back into my first set of talents. Macaroon applied the correct profile and the Macaroon Alert window popped up with the item showing although I couldnt interact with the window. I logged out, disabled the Macaroon Alert addon and logged back in. I was able to loot the boss using the blizz interface. I realise now that I could have tried a UI refresh - not sure why I didnt tbh - prob too tired.

I'll log back in today with the addon enabled and keep it in my primary talent to see if I can loot.

Hope (but doubt) this helps.

[edit]. Have gone back in on first talent spec and can loot ok. changing to second spec stops loot.

Not sure if this info helps.

Bones.
if you have atlasloot, you could try disabling only that, and seeing if that has any different effects.

if it does, please describe those effects here in full detail as best you can.

but, if disabling atlasloot doesn't have any noticeable effects, or if you don't have atlasloot, you could always try disabling other mods, and looking for any changes.

or, if you want to do this really thoroughly and carefully, start with having only the macaroon mods enabled, and then enabling your other mods, one or two at a time.
