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

    I'm sorry, but this wonderfull addon is crashing my client too.

    Loading screen stops loading at a certain point and it's pretty hard to exit the game "in a proper manner".

    (The WoW screen stays on top and I have to restart the computer blind.)

  • #2047

    I'm wondrign if I'm using the latest update? CUrse says  1.0.3 but that doesnt seem to be correct.

  • #2045

    same error here - wow stopps loading

  • #2044

    Does this work on Macs? I installed in how I normally do for other add ons but it doesnt seem to work.

     

     

    Edit** It looks like I am having same issues saying it is out of date and wi not go past loading screen. ***

    I got the same problem as Jerricho87 and Makibird with the lastest update you get stuck on the char loading screen even after removing any trace of earlier versions, but you can get in if it is disabled or removed.

    If it help to resolve it, I can say the I get a wow.exe stop responding msg from windows.

    I am having the same issue as Makibird.  I tried an update, a fresh install, and an install with the fishingbuddy.lua file removed.  All three things ended with the same result.  WoW locks up on the loading screen at about 1/6 th the loading bar full.

    That's just weird. I can't make it happen, but I will keep trying to figure it out.

    Since updating, I cannot log into any of my characters. Once FB has been disabled, I can log in fine again :/

  • #2038

    Does WoW just hang and you have to forcibly quit? Is this in the current version or the beta of WoW? Which version of FB? Is this a "clean" install or did you have previous fishing data? Please send me your SavedVariables/FishingBuddy.lua file, which will help find the issue.

    Thanks,

    Sut

    I really like this addon, have used it for a very long time. But one thing with the last few verisons ive noticed is. Using the equipment manager outfits do not work. It creates the fishing buddy temp outfit or it creates a fishing buddy outfit. Problem is if you create any other outfits with the equipment manager it deletes them when you switch with the icon. Any ideas whats going on? I tried to do a clean install of the addon but I get the same problems.

    I have hacked on LibTourist to at least not fail badly in MoP. It is *not* a full fix -- there is no fishing level information, etc,

    1.0.9 Beta 2

    Thanks!

    I think I have found a bug with the 'Lure of last resourt' option.

    I have the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat equiped and have Sharpened fish Hooks in my bags. I also have the options Easy Cast, Easy Lures, Always Lure and Lure of last resort checked.

    The problem is that when I double click to use the Easy Cast and it applies a lure, it always applies the lure from the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat (+75 Fishing), not the Sharpend Fish Hook (+100 Fishing)! :-(

    Thank you for the bug report -- I will look into it!
