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 ran into a weird bug.  When I have version 1.0.8a enabled, the "multisampling" and "vertical sync" items in the graphics portion of the WoW options menu disappear.  If I disable FB and log in again, the items are back.  I tried reloading the ui with FB enabled and they're still missing.  I also confirmed that another guildmate of mine is seeing the same issue.

    I finally found the issue -- this bug is fixed in the (currently uploading) version 1.0.8b.

    Easy cast is working great now, thanks for the rewrite! I did find one problem. When I have 'Fishing Fun' on, when I de-equip my fishing pole using the Fishing Buddy minimap button, my companion pet disappears.

    Example: I have Willy out as my companion, I click the minimap button to fish (I have None selected from the pet pulldown). Willy stays out. I click the minimap button again to de-equip, Willy disappears.

    Example 2: I have Willy out as my companion, I click the minimap button to fish (I have Fishing selected from the pet pulldown). Strand Crawler come out. I click the minimap button again to de-equip, Strand Crawler disappears.

    If I remember correctly, 'None' didn't make your companion disappear before, and having 'Fishing' selected returned your previous pet when you were done fishing.

    Thanks xanxost! It should work that way, I will look into what broke!

  • #2025

    could this please be updated on wowinterface.com? My machine gets along much better with that site than here. :( 

     Thank you for coding this!

    Done.

    The mini map icon keeps moving. I reset it to about 144 degrees and when I switch characters or log out and back in with the same toon it has moved up to where the mail icon sits. I have ver 1.0.8a. I also have the SexyMap addon installed. I cant tell if FB is changing where the icon sits or if SexyMap is doing it. None of my other addon map buttons move around like this.

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

    HI, sorry with my english.

    I have spanish client and have a bug with the gear. If i put in addon "hat, pole, bots and hands" there is not problem, i switch equiped with the button perfect.

    But if in slot shoulders or beld or wrist I check:   "When checked, this slot is force empty on switch" and i button nothing happen if i button another time a error said to me "Can't switch outfits that quickly."

    I retired all addons except fb and the error persiste. Thanks for all.

    Thank you for the bug report, I will look at that (it's been a while since I've touched the outfit manager).

  • #2019

    There is a bug causing easy cast invalid.

    Try kill something and loot , after the looting you can't use fishing buddy's easy casting.

    I think that's caused by fishlib's isLooting check.

    That's why I rewrote it completely in 1.0.8 -- the fishing library no longer watches for the LOOT events, since they seem to behave somewhat less than reliably.

    i seem to have found a bug.

    i have weather-beaten fishing hat.

    so i use auto lure with easy cast

    it seems that sometimes after it applies the lure easy cast no longer works. i usually have to relog to fix it

  • #2016

    Thank you for the report! That gives me someplace to look. I don't see the issue, but I may have an inkling of what's going on (Blizz doesn't make it easy to tell :-)

  • #2018

    Blizz has a lot of restrictions on what you can do for each hardware "event". That being said, I'll see if I can figure out a general purpose way to do "fishing prep" actions.
