Bongos2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.10.1
by: Tuller [More]
I have written a new action bar addon, called Dominos, and am no longer supporting this one. Please feel free to try it out, along with Trinity Bars, and Bartender 3


Bongos is an action bar replacement designed to be both low memory, and easy to setup. It is not as feature rich as other bar mods, but should include the features most commonly used.

Version History
A Brief Guide

Included Addons
  • Bongos2: The core addon.
  • Bongos2 ActionBar: Breaks up the main action bar into movable parts
  • Bongos2 Stats: A display for latency, framerate, and memory usage
  • Bongos2 RollBar: Makes the frame for rolling on items movable
  • Bongos2 CastBar: A movable casting bar, with the ability to show cast time
  • Bongos2 XP: A movable experience bar
  • Bongos2 MapBar: A movable mapbar
  • Bongos2 Options: A dynamically loaded options menu for Bongos

Features
  • Every Bongos bar can be moved, hidden, and have its scale and opacity altered
  • Sticky bars - Each bar can be anchored to any other bar
  • 120 action buttons, which can be setup in any number of bars
  • Both macro and key binding text on action buttons can be hidden
  • Customizable stance transitions for each bar

General Settings
  • To bring up the options menu: type /bongos menu
  • To unlock bars: uncheck the lock bars option in the main options menu
  • To hide or show a bar: unlock bars, then middle click or shift right click it
  • To move a bar: unlock bars, and then click and drag it with the left mouse button
  • To bring up a bar's configuration menu, right click it

Key Bindings
  • Bindings for the Bongos action bar should only be done via the bindings menu in Bongos
  • To bind keys, open the main options panel, and select the bindings option. Hover over a button, then press a key to bind it to that button

Action Bar Settings
  • Accessing general action bar options: open up the main options window (/bongos menu) and select the action bars panel
  • Adjusting the layout of a given bar: unlock bars and right click the bar you want to adjust to bring up its configuration menu
  • Moving buttons: Hold down the key for moving buttons (shift by default), and drag a button. Alternatively, unlock button positions by shift right clicking the mini map button, or unchecking the option in the main options menu
  • Making a bar bigger: You can increase the maximum size of a given bar by reducing the number of action bars. To do so, adjust the action bars slider on the action bar panel of the main options menu. This option will reset the settings of your action bars

Stances and Paging
  • Stances and paging are configured via a bar's right click menu. With bars unlocked, right click the bar you want to change,

Slash Commands
  • All commands start with either /bongos, /bob, or /bgs
  • <barList> can have a possible value of an actionbar number, menu, bags, pet. class, or all
  • You can also specify a group or range of bars, the command /bo scale 1-3 class 1.2 will scale action bars 1 2 3, and the class bar to 120% of their normal size.
  • /bongos - Shows the options menu, if present
  • /bongos lock - Toggles locking bars positions
  • /bongos show <barList> - Shows <barList>
  • /bongos hide <barList> - Hides <barList>
  • /bongos toggle <barList> - Toggles <barList>
  • /bongos scale <barList> <scale> - Sets the scale of <barList> to <scale>
  • /bongos setalpha <barList> <opacity> - Sets the opacity of <barList> to <opacity>
  • /bongos set <profile> - Sets the current character to use <profile>
  • /bongos copy <profile> - Copies all settings from <profile>
  • /bongos delete <profile> - Deletes <profile>
  • /bongos reset - Loads default settings
  • /bongos version - Displays what version of bongos you're running
  • /keybound - Toggles keybinding mode

PLEASE fix Bongos2 .. many in my guild are now using Dominos
We find that after Bongos2, Dominos is like changing to instant coffee.
Dominos is by the same author as Bongos2 - the only feature missing is the minimap (which I find sad, but then I'm not the one writing the mod).

Bongos 2 and 3 will no longer work when 3.0.2 hits normal realms. I'd look at Dominos, Macaroon, or Bartender4.

I have tried Bongos3 and I don't like it. I haven't been able to do the same things with it as I have with Bongos2, e.g. moving an item from 1 bar to another. But that's for a different forum.

Also, you may want to try out Dominos.

I know. I just haven't quite worked my way up to field-testing it. I may schedule that for this weekend.

Key Binding problems

I have used Bongos2 for a long time and never had any problems with the key bindings till recently.

I use key binds for secondary actions bars with multiple modifier keys:
ctrl+shift+1 though ctrl+shift+=

I recently started having a problem with the key combination of ctrl+shift+0
Bongos only seems to recognize the ctrl+shift part of the key bind. When you find the key this is what is shows on the screen and the key then does not correctly work.

I have tried this in Bongos3 as well and it does not work.

For Bongos 2 I am running version 1.10.1. As I said I used this key bind without error for a long time. I'm not really sure when it stopped working but I believe it hasn't worked since game version 2.3

G11 and G15 support

I use a Logitech G11 keyboard which gives me an additional 18 function keys labelled G1 - G18, but in order to use them I have to make keybindings for obscure combinations that I don't currently use like CTRL-ALT-1, CTRL-ALT-A, etc. When I set this up on one of the action bars it shows as the keybound shortcut AC1, ACA, etc. rather than G1, G2 etc.

I was wondering if there would be a way in the near future to support G11 and G15 keyboards to show the G-functions rather than the keybinds or failing that if a player can set an alias for the bound key?
