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).

    Hi im on a mac and im like the others cant cast which setting on the mac you have unticked?

  • #1981

    Just a thought for those people who have had problems with casting not working in version "h."  I have that happen occasionally, but I just hit the actual fishing button to cast and the next time I need to autocast it works again.

    As for "j" I'll just watch the comments for a bit to see how it goes before installing it.

  • #1980

    I also agree/confirm .1.0.7j seems to have made things worse.   I've tried everything, including: the following: disabling all add-ons,  Deletinging CACHE, WTF, Interfaces folders (see Blizzard standard support emails) and restarted WOW Client.

    I'm rolling back to 1.0.7h yet again.  -  This version seems to work as others have said previously.

    Casting problem get's worse with every "bugfix". At first it stopped working more ore less random (three or four versions ago) for me. Then it stopped after getting infight. Then after aggroing. Now it doesn't work at all.

    After all it reminds me how brilliant this addon is (used to be).

    Edit: I can confirm it stops after looting something (1.0.7j). /reload, works, loot something, stops working...

    Same with me at least for looting (something other than what you catch)

  • #1975

    looting of anything before fishing will cause auto cast to not work, must reload the ui and then it will work

  • #1976

    I can confirm this.

    It was working OK  until I fished up "a message in a bottle" when I opened it and looted the contents the easy cast stopped working. I did have my bags open. This stayed this way even between changing zones until reloaded the UI then it started working aagin.

    I am using 1.0.7j

    As to other suggestions in posts - I don't use Bartender.

    Indeed new version fixed it and for good. No idea if reverting to old version would keep it fixed like one suggested but for me without any change just update to version J made a trick.

    EDIT: Looks like I was too fast - when I try to fish I run into same problem again. But when just before fishing I do /reload I have working Easy Cast. Must be some addon but no idea which - and not really got time atm to do a proper research :/ Maybe Bartender ?

    Re: Click to Cast

     Hi guys, I just downloaded the most recent FB 1.0.7j and found that it is working just fine. I even went back and downloaded and installed the version FB 1.0.7i to see if it is working and it is working just fine also. People you must remember to go into the options panel and check the "easy cast" box especialy if you deleted your saved variables file. The options are not all set by default, some have to be done manually. I did this on two of my toons and they both work great. I hope this can help.

    Thanx Sutorix for one of the most helpful addons in the game!

    Click to cast issues

    I am at a loss -- click to cast works just fine for me, using any combination of the broker, Fishing Ace! and FB, singly or together.

    The only thing I can figure is that there is:

    1) A setting in the client (on my Mac) that I don't have checked and other people do

    2) An add-on I don't use that is interfering with casting, usually by automating something with clicks and then not playing nicely with other add-ons that want the same thing

    I will keep trying to figure it out, and I appreciate everyone who has posted a bug report!

    Keep on fishin'

    -Sut

  • #1973

    Thank you for the fixes and updates.  This is one addon that is just not enjoyable to fish without, indeed!  Mad props, Sutorix!

  • #1967

    Clicking to cast is not working for me, even when I revert to the "h" version.  After looking for another fishing addon, I discovered they are ALL having the same issue.

  • #1968

    Try just using the .h version by itself, no other addons and see if it works.  So far, you're the only one I have seen say that .h version has not worked for them - so this makes me think you might also have an addon that is interferring with FB.

    Another thing you can try is to Back up your FB saved variables and then delete them from the WTF folder and try again, you might have an issue with newer version saved var conflicing with the older version.
