About Fishing Buddy

Fishing Buddy
-------------

A fishing addon that keeps track of the fish you catch and helps manage your fishing gear.

Features:
- Double-click fishing
- Supports the new WoW "fish without a pole" feature
- Bring out your fishing pets! Drink heavily!
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit, it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ (http://wow.toshimo.com/viewtopic.php?t=272).

    Reading the posts about possible problems with the checkboxes and settings I'm wondering if that could be connected to the problem I'm seeing with helm display. I have the main "Show Helm" option disabled and FB's OutfitDisplay overrides that to display the Fishing Hat when I equip my fishing outfit, but now, every time I un-equip my fishing outfit the game's Show Helm option is enabled and I have to open the game options and disable it.

    One other thing I've noticed is that I disabled the "Use any pole" option a long time ago and looking at each characters FishingBuddy.lua file I can see ["AnyPole"] = 0 but when I look at the FB options in-game the "Use any pole" option is selected! Guessing this is also connected to the problem with checkboxes and settings?

    I love Fishing Buddy, but I was wondering if you ever thought about trying add fishing statistics per character instead of combined totals for an account.

     

  • #2734

    Sutorix, I love this addon, I've used it for years - thank you.

    I'm having trouble getting the Easy Lures fuinction working. I have lures in my inventory, equip my fishing outfit, easy lure is checked, but it doesn't lure my pole. I have to manually do it each time.  Any cluies?

  • #2735

    There may be an issue with checkboxes and settings -- I'm looking at it.

    Thank you for your support! It wouldn't be worth it for just me :-)

  • #2731

    Not sure why, but when I try to change options around (ie: turning off fishing contest support), upon changing tabs or closing out the window, it does not save the selected settings and is just back to default.

  • #2732

    I get the same issue with options not saving.

    Additionally the tickbox to say empty this slot for clothing when switching outfits no longer works correctly. You get a "That item doesn't go there" style error and the clothing may or may not change (in my case the shoulders did get taken off but the belt did not, but it wasn't till i unticked all empty options that the error message went away)

  • #2733

    Thank you for the reports - I will dig into this. There seems to be some changes around the checkbox handling that may have broken things.

  • #2729

    There is a problem with the checkboxes in the Options Panel. Blizzard changed something with the GetChecked() function. In G15Buttons it would no longer work from GetChecked()==1 but GetChecked() would. Not sure how this plays out in FB but the options are not updating for some reason.

  • #2730

    It seems to be working for me -- but I will do some more in depth testing and see if there is some weird corner case. Are you using the English client? (I hope Blizz will make it easier to use a non-English client from the US in the future).

  • #2725

    any plans to ever remove "Derby" from the Fishing Timers ?

    reason being the Extravaganza is the only tournament left right ?

  • #2726

    It's probably time :-)

    Fishing Buddy Version 1.4d Beta 1

    - Hack to LibTourist to work under WoD

    Starting prep for WoD -- so far just need some library updates (LibTourist isn't ready yet, so this version has been hacked to at least not error out)

  • #2723

    I'm having issues when my Easy Cast not working... It will start to work then it will stop then I have to change the button type to get it to start working again... and it doesn't do anything except double right-click which is what I want, but like it will say mouse button 4... any idea what i can do to fix this?
