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).

    got the same error today when login :/

  • #2110

    I have a fix for this coming shortly!

  • #2101

    I don't have a problem with the click casting at all.  Though I use a modifier b/c it conflicts with my archeology click casting if I don't.  Try that maybe?  What I'd really like to see fixed is the 'Pet by ID' error I keep getting.  I'd assume this is from the pet journal changes Blizz made, but it seems to have broken the ability to just turn this off in the options menu till it's working again.

    Hi.

    In a module FishingGearManager.lua variable _ still can be leaked into global namespace, causing infamous Glyph UI glitch. Until it gets fixed in next patch from Blizzard's side it's better to fix it.

    Here's a patch:

    --- FishingGearManager.lua.orig    Чт сен  6 12:23:22 2012

                     link = GetInventoryItemLink("player", slot);
                 else -- bags

    Or, you can declare it local at the start of file like in other modules.

    Bump this.
  • #2099

    They both should behave the same -- I will take a look at it (a lot has changed all over the place, so I'm catching up).

  • #2098

    well ... the fishing buddy no longer has the "Double right-click to cast fishing" but has AutoLure FishingAce and no longer has the AutoLure but has Cast Fishing ... and both are from the same developer ... hmm ... I think I'm starting to see sense in it ... use 2? I would prefer that the developer becomes one of the 2 time.

    XD

  • #2097

    duble-click for fishing dont work more ? now only applying a lure over and over :(

    need install http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/fishing-ace  for work ??

    XD

  • #2093

    Since the patch, I have been noticing that in my estimated casts-to-level-up the numerator goes up by 2 each time so I see {2/~4, 4/~4, 6/~4 etc.}.

  • #2094

    Yeah, I may have to dump and/or completely rework that feature. The skill up is no longer predictable and the counting is broken :-)

    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.
