Extra Bars and WoD
Posted By: Alternator
So the next expansion is just about upon us, so I figured I'd take the moment to do a blog post about Extra Bars and WoW. But in a nutshell, I'll be continuing support for both addons in WoD :) It is a long post but if you wanted to read a bit of history and my thoughts on it all here's the link (it's on the curse BF addon page...

Button Forge and WoD
Posted By: Alternator
Now that BF has stabilised with 6.0.2 for the moment, I wanted to let people know where I am at with keeping the addon up to date now that WoD is almost upon us. Rather than post it everywhere, I've got a link to my post about it on the curse page for BF It's quite long, and really only targetted at those that are curious about m...

Hey, Thanks Catitude, It's always good to get that kind of feedback :D Deadlyz, I'll check into that - but to confirm it's only happening when you log out and back in?

Button Forge v0.9.38
Posted By: Alternator
Ok I've just uploaded a new version of Button Forge: This one should get around the Mac Client issue with saved variables for some characters. Now BF will store a back up of your character settings to its account level saved variables and use those if it can't find local character settings. In a nut shell - BF will now remembe...

I've just uploaded Button Forge v0.9.37 Fixes Cooldown Swipe and Bling will now be adjusted appropriately when the BF Buttons are semi or fully transparent (for some reason these UI elements disobey Effective Alpha settings) The Priest Holy Word variants should now be addable and work again on BF Buttons The error some peop...

Thanks, especially for taking the time to provide the detailed info! I've got a list of issues that are affecting some players that I'm working through, so I'll also look into this one (I suspect the first is related to the macro names, unfortunately Bliz don't provide a very reliable way of tracking macros - but BF should still b...

I'm not sure if either of those options would be of help but thought I'd mention them? Thank you :) but I don't think those are the options I'm looking for, aha. I use CT_Barmod for a bar with profession buttons that becomes visible when I moseover it. But I don't like the global cooldown animation added in CT with the new versi...

Hi! I need help. I want to make a bar that is only visible when I mouse over it. I tried the "visibility macro" but it's not working and I can't find any options. Here's what I wrote: show; hide Unfortunately this isn't possible - basically the mouseover condition is for targets like mobs (help / harm). But it is an oft r...

Posted By: Alternator
I've just uploaded v0.7.18 as yesterdays upload may have still caused problems for some people. The first time you logon with this version it will clear your mounts and battlepets from the extrabars as WoW uses new values to track these and I wasn't able to map them (in the case of battlepets it potentially would cause outright er...

Posted By: Alternator
Ok phew - v0.9.36 has just been uploaded; I'm really hoping this has nixed the major issues people were encountering with BF in WoW 6.0.2, and doesn't add new ones - as this pre expansion patch has caught me on the back foot. This update will wipe your battlepets from ButtonForge buttons the next time you log in... This is becau...

Posted By: Alternator
Extra Bars has been updated to v0.7.17 - This will support the newly released WoW v6.0.2 p.s. I'll try and post a bit of an update on me and my plans regarding Extra Bars - but the tldr will be I hope to continue to support it through WoD and improve a few outstanding issues in it as time permits.

Anyway - I'm just heading out the door but will try and do a better post letting people know where things are at later on. in the meantime I've uploaded v0.9.34 - that should resolve the issues people are having with 6.0.2... It took me by surprise. EDIT: I found an issue wit...

Hello, I was wondering if you could please tell me how to find the keybinds for buttonforge bars? Thank you very much Hi Solvexx, Sorry about the slow reply (kind of a common thing from me :o) Anyway, keybinds can be set while in config mode for Button Forge (must be in advanced mode though): To enable advanced mode it is...

Im using this for 1-click macros to throw Mark of Anguish to selected raidmembers in the Protectors fight in SoO. Right now im using a macro to show/hide the bar. Is it possible to have the bar show up only when ExtraActionButton1 becomes active (Meaning when I have the Mark of Anguish on me)? Even better would be if it could actu...

Posted By: Alternator
I've read back on some of the comments and am not seeing a clear mention of what I'm looking for. I intend to make a bar that can be completely invisible until I click on it or use "CTRL" key to make it visible. I might be wanting the moon on a string, but I thought I'd ask if that was something that I could do as keybind or macro...

thanks for the info on /bufo -gap 1 works perfect. however, is there any way to adjust opacity? if not this is a request can you add something like what i suggested raven addon author to add screen shot http://s1224.photobucket.com/user/pwnbusiness/media/WoWScrnShot_092013_063124_zps2f0a2e9f.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 opacity in...

Re: spacing
Posted By: Alternator
hey, is it possible to crunch the spacing between the buttons? It is. The command you're after is /bufo -gap # Assuming you're not skinning and wanted the borders touching a spacing of 2 will probably be best so /bufo -gap 2 (the default is 6, you can also get a complete list of commands with /bufo). This command can als...

Button Forge v0.9.30 uploaded
Posted By: Alternator
Hi All, v0.9.30 should be available shortly, this version adds in 'cast keybind on key down' functionality - this means actions on Button Forge bars should also trigger on the keybind down phase - It obeys the same setting that governs this feature in the standard ui so after updating you shouldn't need to make any changes. P...

(let me know if there is still trouble binding the 3rd mouse button) Alternator Middle mouse button doesn't do anything when I push at the "not bound" area. Mousewheel works. Middle mouse works on other bar addons. Labeled as B3, which is button 3 I guess. Ahh, don't click the "not bound" button. These are the steps to u...

Any way to keybind middle mouse button? Only mousewheel seems to bind. I have basic 3button + wheel mouse. Tried to edit the savedvariable file but didn't get it to work.
