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

    Crap. I'm trying to reverse engineer the new pet functions -- the "companion" APIs no longer work (try /randompet, for example) and I must be missing something somewhere.

    I will keep working on it.

  • #2091

    Looks to be working fine on beta.  But I don't see the skill up estimate counter.  Has that been removed?

    Great addon. Thanks for your work.

    The main functionality seems to be working for me without errors, except it only detects about the first 15 or so of my pets, so it doesn't find any of my "fishing" pets.  Minor annoyance, but I really enjoyed that feature pre-patch.

  • #2088

    Working on that right now, in fact :-)

    Yet another version of LibTourist is up, as soon as the pets are done, I will be uploading a new version.

  • #2084

    Picking up an Astrolabe error with 1.0.9b:

    1x FishingBuddy-1.0.9b\Libs\Astrolabe\Astrolabe.lua:1536: attempt to index local "harvestedData" (a number value)

    FishingBuddy-1.0.9b\Libs\Astrolabe\Astrolabe.lua:1536: in main chunk

    Many thanks for keeping up the great work :)!

  • #2096

    Thanks for the report, I will look into it. Astrolabe is no longer supported, so I'm trying to find some workarounds.

  • #2082

    It's not working for me...no auto-cast occurring.

    Even tried with the modifiers...nothing.

    Update:  Very strange...when I select the 'only cast in pools' checkbox...then it works when I'm hovered over a pool.  As long as my mouse is hovered over the pool the auto-cast works.  When I remove my mouse from over top of the pool...it doesn't auto-cast anymore.  Hope that helps narrow it down some.  :)  

    (No 'cast bar' either...there used to be one that showed how much time on the casts is remaining...it's gone).

    Thanks,

    With latest version i'm getting this error:

  • #2079

    Darn, I had hoped the new LibTourist would fix that for everyone. It's working for me at the moment, but I will dig into it.

    Thanks!

    Can't equip glyphs while using this addon.  (According to Skillet, this was because of the global _ variable being tainted in Blizz UI)
