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).

    Ok, with the new update, it is causing massive lag for some reason.  I couldn't go more than 10 seconds flying before my FPS plummeted for several seconds, once I deactivated the newest version of FB it seemed to be fine, here are errors I got that I think are related:

    }

  • #2262

    Hmm. Line 155 is calling "ClearSearchFilters" -- it's inside Blizz code. Or should be -- is RandomCompanion another addon? Maybe it's patching something badly. I will see what I can do :-)

  • #2277

    I wanted to follow up to say that I have tried the new update to but the problem still exists and it seems to be random which addon give me the script too long error because it seems to be a different one everytime I activate it.  The FPS lag is still there as well.

  • #2266

    I have the same as Golconda, if I enable the new FB I got serious FPS lag every few seconds.
    I don't have RandomCompanion as an addon, but got several other addons randomly giving the error "script ran too long"

  • #2263

    Your the best, thanks, Random Companion is another addon that randomly picks a mount or companion with macros but it seems to not be playing well with FB but not sure why?

  • #2259
    Hunter Pet Lag

    FishingBuddy-v1.2 is causeing the same Hunter pet lag i saw before :(

    **Version: 1.1f works perfect tho

    Could you file a ticket, with whatever information you have. I'll have to make a hunter and play with it :-)

  • #2258

    Is it possible to add a little love for the Angler's Fishing Raft? Test on the cast as you do for the lures and recast the raft if there is <= one minute left?

  • #2261

    Yes, I am working on it -- it's taking a lot more logic to handle the new items :-)

  • #2257

    Got this error today: i dont recall what i was doing other than trying to switch outfits via the click.

    This should be fixed -- what version are you running?

    Crap. Okay, I found the problem -- a fix is coming up soon!

    Thanks!

    Given the name of the thing that's causing the error (Add all Pet Types Filter), I wonder if it has something to do with the number of pets I have?  On combining things to account-wide with 5.0.4, I ended up with nearly 700 pets, and I haven't gone through the list to clean up / cage / release the many duplicates.  If that's likely the cause, then feel free to disregard, as I'll be going through the list and caging/selling some duplicate pets and releasing the rest come next Tuesday-ish.

     
    I still have this problem! Any idea on a fix?

    I'm working on it! I am trying to make sure it doesn't break in other ways.
