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.

    What he said. I'm SO SAD. :(

    Love the addon, got small thing that annoys me a bit tho. You see when you got 2H weapon equiped and you "click to switch" for fishing and then back to gear - everything lands in bags places where it was. But when you got 2 weapons and "click to switch" for fishing and back, equipment lands in bags misplaced, so gotta move them to where I want them to be manually. I use Bagnon for my bags. Any ideas?

  • #1856

    It's supposed to remember where they came from (well, FB OutfitDisplayFrame should). I'll take a look and see if something has changed.

  • #1845

    Hi Sutorix! Thanks a lot for FB, I really love it. But I do have a question about fish tracking. When positioning my lvl 12 toon to fish for Old Ironjaw, the total fish caught there was over 400. But that is probably all my toons combined. Is there a way to show the totals per toon?

  • #1847

    That's on my feature list -- but on order to not explode the data requirements I would have to set things up to gather up all the data from all the toons. It's completely doable, but the "crossover" point needs to be worked out.

  • #1844

    Hello and thx for an awesome addon. I recently started fishing again (wanna try my luck at fishing derby :) and noticed that the enhance pools option isn't working for me. Everything else is working, but when I switch outfits, the pools look the same. This feature is a major one for me. I tried deleting my saved variables for that toon and no change. Then started going backwards with the versions and the last version that it seemed to work in was 1.0.4a. I'm not sure if I'm the only one having this issue or not. I looked thru the comments on here as well as your source site and didn't see anything about it anywhere else, just the easy lure problem which is working fine for me coincedently lol. Any other troubleshooting tips you could give me would be appreciated. I will stick with 1.0.4a until I hear back from you, thank you.

    Hi.  Has anything been found regarding FB always trying to add another lure?  This happens to both my wife and myself on different computers.  Every time (with easy lure selected) when double click casting, it adds a new lure.  Thanks for the fantastic mod!

    ***Edited to add extra info***

    Happens regardless of fishing skill or location

    Will on occaision add an odd, inoperable bar on the left side of the screen with a drop down selector indicator which you can highlight but has no function.

    Also seems to have started for us when the volume scale was added for adjustment.

    I have occasionally seen the "dead bar" as well, I just haven't been able to track it down. I am looking for it though.

    The "continually add a lure" bug is driving me nuts, I haven't been able to replicate it no matter what I do!

  • #1852

    I will see if I can figure out some useful debugging -- if I can come up with something I'll send you a PM! Thanks!

  • #1850

    I don't know if it would be of any help but I can reproduce the "always adding a lure" issue very consistently.  It always does it once I have a failed fishing attempt.  So if you need any info from me please let me know.

  • #1849

    I did some testing today, when the lure was applied the first time everythng worked great ( didnt try to apply another) When that one wore off while fishing ( actively waiting for fish to bite / fishing spell counting down), on the next cast it applied a new lure and then every cast after that it tried to apply another one.  I had to log out or reload UI to get it to stop trying to cast another lure buff.

    I then waited for teh buff to fall off with out fishing and still had the same effect, lure being reapplied every cast.  Log out / Reload UI was only way to clear it.

    I then manually removed it and had the same issue.

    With all other addons turned off none of this is an issue, so some other addon must be causing an issue with FB not being able to see the lure buff being applied properly.

     

    will try to test that and see what I can come up with

     

    Well I thought that was it, but I went into winterspring to test.  Had only a few addons enabled, ( same as I had the lest few times testing in ashenvale) and it occurd. I then disabled all and enabled just FB to make sure I was gettig valid data. Skill info ZONE 425 my skill data 157 + 80 [237]  31% chance to catch

    I turned off the buff, logged out, logged back in and let FB add the buff automatcally on first cast.  Then every attempted cast after that FB trid to apply the lure.

    FB - outfit frame , mergedata, tracking frame  are the only enabled addons

    more testing to follow

    Well with FB the =base addon no plug ins enabled I was able to reproduce this everytime withthe above skill data ( of course gain some levels doing this.  Going to delete out all FB saved variables and try again .

     Last Edit:

    Delteing the variable files form the character area and from the main account area, I was still able to recreate this with just FB base addon, no plug ins enabled.  Again I was in Winterspring the fishing hole by Donova Snowden with a skill of 173 base.  On a Goblin Shaman level 51.  if any of that matters.

    I have this issue as well, deleted everything out and restarted, but still every cast it tries to add another lure my skill is at 28 and using the shiny bauble.  Currently turned off aauto lure to keep from wasting my copper

    Sorry about that everyone, 1.0.6a fixes the typo.

  • #1842

    May as well close ticket #138. The typo was probably the cause.
