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.

    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:

    Message: ...\FishingBuddy\Libs\LibTourist-3.0\LibTourist-3.0-90145.lua:2113: table index is nil

    Deleted old folder and installed new one, and error still here.

    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)

    I'm not seeing this behavior -- what is the global variable that's "tainted"?

    Thanks!

    As Thortok2000 already wrote, the name of the variable is _  ( underscore).

  • #2077

    Same here. Also with 1.0.9a.

  • #2073

    Does it work after a /reloadui or logging out and back in?

    Same here

    5x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "FishingBuddy" tried to call the protected function "CastGlyph()".

    FYI your LibTourist-3.0 hack left in a debugging print statement that spams continent names at login.

    FYI also, the official LibTourist is updated.

    Any chance you can offer a nolib version?

  • #2078

    1.0.9a has been uploaded, with the latest LibTourist.

    I will look into a "no public libs" version :-)

  • #2066

    I am having a weird problem as a hunter where if I double click on land, my bow is equipped, but I will still get messages that my cast did not land in water and the volume adjustments will engage.

  • #2068

    The Fishing Pole detection used to be robust, I'll see what Blizz changed that would break it now...

  • #2069

    You are no longer required to have an actual fishing pole equipped in order to fish.

    This fundamental change in the api may be the cause of this bug.
