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).

Installation
------------

1. Unzip the 'FishingBuddyVERSION.zip' file
2. If your unzip program allows you to specify a location, then unzip it into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder contained in your WoW folder (the location that WoW was installed)
3. If your unzip program doesn't let you specify the destination, then find your WoW folder (where it was installed) and drag the 'FishingBuddy' folder into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder.

Version 1.4c
- Don't try to summon fishing pets if we're in combat
- Make sure we autoloot things that we're opening automatically
- Better handling when both Angler's Raft and Bipsi's Berg are available
- Fix for Curse bug #231 "Watcher not toggling off automatically"

Version 1.4b
- Get my act together with respect to watch window location (thanks Grizzly_UK!)

Version 1.4a
- More work on keeping the watcher visible and onscreen (using LibWindow)
- Handle version changes and per-player settings correctly
- Fix an issue with LibTourist where it doesn't check for esMX

Version 1.4
- Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE
- Remove invalid frame reference in watcher window (Curse #229)
- Add "/fb fishdata reset" to clear out all fish location data (#127)
- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

    Hmm, whatever changes you did seems to have brought back the memory leak.  Watching fishing buddy go from using only 2.0MB go all the way up to 60MB and then resets.  I'm not sure if it's also responsible for the wow client crashing to desktop during a raid encounter.

    Fishing Buddy 1.2d Beta

    Version 1.2d Beta 1
    - Add option to just "maintain" the raft if it's already on, i.e. manual engagement
    - Support the Sharpened Tuskaar Spear (ugly, but it works for now)
    - Fix the minimap icon setting, again
    - Updated LibTourist to the latest version

    The Tuskaar Spear "works", but the code to make it happen is really ugly, so I may rewrite it all again :-)

     The raft should work again.

    I hate to say this... but for some reason, 1.2c stopped using Nat's Hat.

    I'm standing in Kun-Lai, fishing Reef Octopus, and keep getting Sickly Fish and stuff.

    Although I have activated the "always lure" option, Fishing Buddy doesn't use the Hat.

     

    *EDIT*

    OK, Nat's Hat is being used, but it seems Fishing buddy simply doesn't recognize gray loot.

    When im Fishing in 'Vale of Eternal Blossoms' it uses the Hat automatically.

    It may be an issue with the LibTourist data for the fishing level, I will look into it!

    Fishing Buddy does not show in bazooka addon somehow.
    Bazooka Issue or FB issue ?

  • #2303

    I don't use Bazooka, but I will look into it.

    Edit: It seems to work fine for me -- I had to go turn the "text" on in the options, but it showed up. I will see about integrating "better" with bazooka in the future.

    For some odd reason the mini-map button wont go away.  I De-select it in the options, but still the button remains around the mini-map.

    Fishing Buddy 1.2c

    Version 1.2c
    - Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
    - Updated Traditional Chinese translation (thanks titanium0107!)
    - Update the raft buff before it expires, if we can (reworking this for the next version)
    - Handle Nat's Hat correctly
    - Lots of small code improvements

     I'm completely reworking the way the fishing item support works, but that requires some changes to the option layout code, which requires... You get the idea ;-)

    Looks like it has a memory leak.  I did a few memory dumps and Fishing Buddy kept scaling the list and eating more and more memory.

  • #2294

    "scaling the list"?

    Okay, I will take a look and see if I can figure out what's going on.

  • #2298

    Yeah, well according to BrokerCPU the memory usage kept on creeping up.  Doesn't seem to be doing it no more now after the 1.2c update.

    Angler's Raft

    Any way to have it cast before the raft drops us in the drink?
