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).

    Easy cast stops working for me on a fishing skill up, not all of the time, but when it stops working, it is always on a skill up.

  • #1945

    Thanks for the bug report, I will see if I can reproduce this!

  • #1941

    The easy cast double right click is also acting up for me.  I noticed it today doing fishing dailies.  It would work fine until I caught a fish that counted toward the daily quest (whitefish in Darnassus) then it would stop working.  Reloading the UI would cause it to start working again until I caught the next quest fish.  Happened with two seperate toons.  It was the same daily quest though.  Hope this helps.

    Awesome addon.  Thanks for all the hardwork you folks do.

  • #1940

    Same for me. Had to open spell book when it stoped untill I got a skill up in fishing then it let me cast by clicking, untill it stoped again so I repeted untill I got another skill point and it worked again. Off and on cinda thing, lol................ Very anoying... Please Fix

    Oh. dont know if this is related to this addon but on my hunter when I select my foces target, it errors out and causes me to not set it untill I reload my ui and it disables Fishing buddy when i do. its weard. dosnt give me a lul error report eather.

  • #1938

    I downloaded the latest version of Fishing Buddy when it got updated (last night I think).

    The right click re-casting worked perfectly for a few casts. I was so happy. And then it stopped working randomly. Even a reload ui doesn't fix it.

    Anyone got any idea what  this is?

    EDIT: Ok, discovered something bizarre. When the UI is turned off, it casts perfectly. But when the UI is on, it won't re-cast on right click.

    Hey there, i have the same issue, fast cast will work for a couple of casts then stop. I then have to manually cast and after that fast cast will work for a couple more casts but then just stop again. Weird :S

  • #1933

    Is there some sort of trick to making the sounds work? I have wow sound turned off and addons like DBM play sounds even when the sound is off, but I cant get this feature in FB to work. I would love it if i could hear the splash sound when its time to reel in. Would make it much better when farming them fishes.

  • #1935

    The sound is supposed to be forced on when you're fishing (if you've set the option), I will double check.

    And make sure I've actually implemented it :-)

  • #1931

    Did FB ever get an update to play nicely with Archy and the whole double-right-click casting thing? I just got FB installed again and the right-click casting works for about 15 casts and then just randomly stops working until I reload my interface.

    Oh, and just wanted to let you know that the FB minimap icon isn't being picked up by MinimapButtonBag (aka MBB)

    I haven't used MiniMapButtonBag, but I'll give it a try and see what I can do.

  • #1921

    I've uploaded a ticket and a screenshot, but curious if anyone else has seen this weirdness?  When fishing buddy is enabled, parts of the graphics options get pushed into the upper left corner.  I've disabled all addons except fishing buddy to verify it is indeed fishing buddy.  When I turn off FB, this doesn't happen (functionality of the screen reverts to normal).  I also have all of the additional plugins for fishing buddy to verify this test.

     

  • #1936

    My setting have been like that for a while.

    I wasn't aware it was Fishing Buddy that caused it.
    Thought it was a bug that blizzard did.

    I can, however, confirm that my settings have the same problem.
