Fishing Ace!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.8.8
by: Sutorix [More]

Fishing Ace! is all the core goodness of Fishing Buddy distilled down into it's simplest form.

If you equip a fishing pole, you will get double-right-click casting. Optionally, Fishing Ace will turn on Auto Loot and it will set the audio values to maximize the sound of the bobber.

It's a standard Ace2 addon -- /fishingace or /fa for help.

Note: The word "Ace!" in the name of the addon has nothing to do with the fact that it uses Ace2 in its construction (although, it *does*, in fact, use Ace2). I just like the name and I think it's cool. If you don't like it, feel free to continue using Fishing Buddy! for all of its not-yet-implemented in Ace2 functionality (not that it uses any of the "Buddy!" system in its construction either);

I prefer this version over FishingBuddy.
I don't care about all the bells and whistles in That version.
All the simplicity I want is included in this addon.

I did update the libs and stuff for this addon and uploaded it to MEGA

Changes I did

*Used 0.8.5 of Fishing Ace! And still got errors with that one... Soo..

*Updated all Core ACE3 Libs using r1169-alpha
*Used the LibTourist from latest FishingBuddy 1.8.3 Beta 1 to eliminate an error (Creddits to Sutorix)
*Updated all lib TOC to make addon up to date according to WoW

Hope youll enjoy

Lua:4:unexpected symbol near @ error

I was updating the TOC today and decided to mess with the locale error. There really ARE no localizations done for this mod, so I figured all the Locale files were supposed to be placeholders. So, Using the Locale-enUS.lua, I just copied and renamed it for all the other locales.

Probably could have just had it loop back but that is what it seemed they were trying to do that didn't work.

I am no coder, and have no clue what anything means, but its working just fine now.

/fa lure option not functional?

I am having trouble getting the auto lure option to work. I turn it on via slash command or interface options. However, I cannot get the auto lure to work on right double click when I have a fishing pole equipped.
Peace & God Bless,

John 14:27 & Numbers 6:24
