Hello fine people :) On the advice of a friend, I decided to start using FuBar instead of TitanPanel because it's supposed to be better and do more stuff. I downloaded it from wowinterface and all the little Fu's I thought I might like and installed them to my game (after deleting the Titan stuff) and when I logged in I had 24 pages of error messages, and some Fu's didn't load at all...
So I got to talking and found out about the WowAceUpdater... Well, 2 hours later THAT thing does not work and it's not just me, dozens of people have posted the same issues as I have with it not working so that's a whole other ball of wax :(
Now I see that there is a whole new FuBar 3.0 out and probably lots of new plug-ins as well since the framework has changed. It sounds really, really nice, and I have even found some new plugins I'd like to have! :)
What I was wondering is why does it have to be so complicated to get an addon for my Wow? The versions of FuBar on the interface download sites are old. 2.0 was the most recent one I found and tried to make work... I've wasted an entire morning by this point trying to get this working. Is there not some website that the author/team maintains where people can simply download and install the latest versions of the mod and all the plugins? That's how all the other mods work...
Am I just missing something? Are you supposed to be a mod developer to be able to use this? I mean, it can't be just me who has ran into all this... I'll bet plenty of others have given up far before I did...
If anybody can tell me how to get this wonderful mod and plugins to work, I would really, really appreciate it! :) Thank you.
The latest version of FuBar is always available from files.wowace.com or by using WAU (which downloads from that page). You can also find lots of useful plugins there, most are prefixed with FuBar_* so they're easy to find.
Well, I've been trying to use the WAU all day, but it's just not working for me :( I've done all the things in the troubleshooting and done things on my own and posted in that forum on this site, but nothing new. I got it to kinda work (I thought) after I reinstalled the dotnet update, but it didn't update anything that I can see and now it is back to not listing and I've done all the troubleshooting again *sigh*
I asked someone in game and they told me about the files.* website so I snagged a bunch from there and I'm about to see if they work... *crosses fingers*
Is there some reason why there isn't an easy website to get all this stuff from? Does the Author need someone to do one for him? I would be happy to try...
I just keep thinking that there has to be an easier way, but maybe I'm still missing something simple...
Ok... I snagged them all from the files.* site and did not get any errors when I loaded the game.. yay! :) I have some issues though...
FishingBuddy does not load and it says on the Addon page that a dependency is disabled. Then it says that the dependencies are FuBar and FishingBuddy.... Um, I have those... Not sure what to do :(
My text chat area is messed up since I removed the bottom bar. It's all squished up against my Aura bar. !!EDIT!! This is fixed by logging out and back in! :)
I'm not sure what CorkFu is supposed to do LOL...
PaladinTimerFu seems to be old since it counts down blessings at 15 minutes and not 30. It's also in the middle of my screen... Not sure what it's supposed to do really either, but I have it turned off now
Whoever wrote PlayerInFu... You are my hero! :) That information almost makes it worth having spent 6 hours trying to get this mod working!!! :)
XPFu - The old bar I used to use (Titan) had an Xp widget that told me X hours to level at my current rate. I don't see that... Am I missing something? Using the wrong XP plugin? This is not a big deal right now considering I just dinged 70 a couple of hours ago (Ok, I HAD to stop dealing with the WAU and actually PLAY today for an hour since I was only 2 bubbles away :) Yay for me!), but I was wondering.
This really makes me wish that there was a site devoted to FuBar so I could read all about these wonderful plugins and probably be able to avoid making posts like this one, annoying all you fine people :) There is just not much info about them on the files.* list... And yes I am serious about helping with a site if needed :)
LocationFu is awesome. That's more information than I need, but it is interesting as hell. Fishing level needed? Awesome, as I love to fish (both irl and in-game). Too cool!
FishingBuddy might have not been updated to work with Fubar3, not sure. CorkFu is a buff thing. You can setup which person to watch and show the buffs missing. PalladinTimer might have missed the 2.2 patch in which some blessings last longer? As far as FuXP goes, there's no time to level thing, I miss it too. But you can set it to show the XP you still need to level :)
ExperienceFu shows time left to level. I personally use both - I hide the FuXPFu plugin and only use it for the bar.
Mods shouldn't have to be updated to work with FuBar-3.0. They just need their embeds set up properly and have any changes needed from the 2.2 patch.
CorkFu is like a mini SmartBuff addon. Create a macro with /click CorkFuFrame in it and then you can use that to rebuff yourself/party member.
I meant with the Rock/Ac3 part .. I don't know if that makes a difference.. Come to think about it, my mind's pretty much totally blank. Though thank you for the CorkFu thing, it'll save me some time :)
