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

- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE

- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

    Well, funny enough... no matter what I do, I stoped to see minimap icon :-( Any ideas?

  • #2126

    To temporary fix this you can edit your WTF-File.

    1.) Close your Game-Client.
    2.) Navigte to your Warcraft-Folder and the to the SavedVariables of your Char.

    Example: x:\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SERVERNAME\CHARNAME\SavedVariables

    3.) Edit the FishingBuddy.lua:

    ["MinimapData"] = {
        ["hide"] = false,     --->    This must be ["hide"] = true,

    4. Save it and start your Game-Client again :)

    Have fun and greeting from Germany. Steve.

    Thanks! The switch to more standard minimap button handling (LibDBIcon vs. my six year old custom code) has left a few holes. I am working on it!

    Hi. First of all thanks for the great addon.

    after last update minimap icon returns back, even being disabled in options.

    when i turn it off (icon) it disappearing from the screen, but next time i login or do reloadui it comes back.

    Regards

  • #2122

    Having same problem.  If i goto options, it shows disabled and if I close the options window the icon disappears.

    Hi.   Longtime user of FB here.  (Thank you for creating and maintaining it!)

    I'm on version 1.0.9f.  

    I'm seeing the Fish Watcher component of FB "double count" my catches when showing me how many fish I've caught versus expected avg % of catches needed to reach the next skillpoint.    So each fish I catch is counting as two catches in the tracker...meaning on average it thinks I'm taking twice as many catches as needed to reach the next point.  So I'm routinely, for example, sitting at 12/~6, or 16/~8, etc.   

    Also I'm observing that the watcher rolls "2 fish" from the catch that put me up to my current skill level into the running count of catches needed for the next catch.

    Is this particular to me or anyone seeing this as well?   It probably started 3-4 updates ago...  Definitely not new to this version.

     

  • #2130

    Yes, I am trying to track that down. It's unclear whether I will continue to support the "aproximate catches to level" part though, since it's much more random now.

    Thanks!

    Version 1.1 Beta 2

    Version 1.1 Beta 2
    - Italian translation, thanks Impaler (and bER92)!
    - Add support for "Fish without a pole" feature. Cast when any fishing gear is worn or
    a modifier key is held down while right-clicking

    Some preliminary support for "fish without a pole equipped" and hopefully better behavior when in combat.

    Should be available soon under "Other Downloads".

    Easy cast is not working on my main even with all other add-ons disabled. Works on other toons. Not getting any error codes.

    Seeing an occasional error related to FB:

    ID: 1
    Error occured in: Global
    Count: 1
    Message: ..\AddOns\FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua line 75:
    script ran too long
    Debug:
    [C]: AddAllPetTypesFilter()
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:75:
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:68
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:480: func()
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:482:
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:478
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:490:
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:489
    Locals:

    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.

  • #2131

    Crap. I'll see what I can do here -- I may be able to use the filters and do things a piece at a time.

    I still have this problem! Any idea if it's gonna be fixed? :)

    Modifier keys?

    Does anyone use the "modifier key" option in FB? I'm thinking about hijacking it for the "fish without a pole" option -- you would cast "Fishing" if any of the following are true:

    You hold down a modifier (i.e. no outfit required), or you are wearing *any* Fishing gear.

    I would update the Fishing Outfit management (where possible) to not switch in the Fishing Pole if you don't need it for the bonus. And for "pool fishing" you just hold down a modifier key, no outfit needed.

    Does that sound reasonable? I'm going to throw together a beta with this feature shortly.

    Loot issue

    i love this addon, but since the last update about half the time i fish with FB i don't get the loot. like its as if i just walked instead of looting. it's super frustrating not to get half my catch. i'll enable it when another update comes out
