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 1.4b
- 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

    Still having a problem with companion pets being dismissed when de-equiping a fishing pole. It happens on any 'fishing pet' setting (including none).

  • #2162

    Thanks for the report, I am working on it (again). I thought I had it working :-(

  • #2152

    I keep trying to hide from the minimap, but every time I load into or out of something, the button keep showing back up, and I have to go into the options click to show, then uncheck to hide it again. It won't stay hidden.

  • #2154

    Thanks for the report, I am working on this!

  • #2149

    Hi, I'm using the Minimap Button Frame ad on (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/minimap-button-frame). At game launch, there is a blacked out link button to Fishing Buddy. After clicking it, however, it disappears. Also, Fishing Buddy is not showing in my (in-game) ad on options list .

     

  • #2144

    Also getting the error, the Pandaren Fishing Charm is causing it, apparently fishing buddy doesnt know how to handle catching 2 fish at a time.

     

  • #2145

    Fishing Buddy shouldn't care how much you catch at a time (after all, it deals with the Pygmy Suckerfish). It's more likely that it's trying to log a fishing pool, and LibTourist is having an issue with the current location.

    My working theory is that there are a lot more "shadow" regions in MoP than before and the various mapping addons haven't caught up yet.

    That being said, I will see if FB can trap the errors and at the least cause them to be a non-issue.

    Getting this error when I open FB to adjust settings.  Disconnected me once.

    Getting problems with options resetting. For example, if I uncheck "Fish Watcher", it'll become checked again if I change tabs or close the window.

  • #2148

    Blizz seems to have changed something about per-character based settings, I'm working on it!

    Thanks for the report,

  • #2140

    I am having trouble getting the volume slider to work. No matter what I set the slider to, when I put on my fishing outfit, the sound is always set to 100%. The only time it isn't is when it's at 0, then the sound is off.

    I hit the same bug as Kronnk in Jade Forest, but *only* when fishing in pools in the 'Pearlfin Village' subzone (coords of the area I was in: 64, 88) if it helps.

    Thanks for the addon, been a favorite for a long time.

  • #2146

    It looks like a missing "region" in LibTourist -- I'm looking into handing the issue in FB.

    Thanks for the report!

    Hmm, I've been to the Jade Forest without issue, I'll play around there some more. I will see if LibTourist has an update I've missed (there wasn't one as of late last night though).
