On the Jaraxxus fight, when adds spawn I'll target our OT and this macro works like an /assist so my dps automatically follows his target. I like it better than using /assist directly because it's more automatic. I don't have to worry about hard coding or focusing a target for the /assist command. But when I have our OT targeted, SAA doesn't see the state of debuffs on his target.
Not sure if this is just me, but I was working fine with 3.2, then when I loaded up 3.2.2 today, S&A seems broken. The bars seem to pop up at the right time, but there is no text and the bars don't change to count down.
Not just you, I'm getting it too. Not sure if I missed a new release, but I'm on 1.3.3
[2009/09/26 13:33:23-654-x471]: SquawkAndAwe-SquawkAndAwe v1.3.3 (r1)\SquawkAndAwe.lua:1226: attempt to concatenate field 'itemname' (a nil value)
SquawkAndAwe-SquawkAndAwe v1.3.3 (r1)\SquawkAndAwe.lua:874: in function <Interface\AddOns\SquawkAndAwe\SquawkAndAwe.lua:873>
ADDITIONAL: It appears to be fine once combat breaks.
Just to clarify, do you mean that the addon begins functioning properly after you leave combat? If so, does it function correctly from then on in, or does it just break while you're in combat and then "work" afterwards?
Fio, El, you're both likely getting the same bug that's been reported for a while and that I've never been able to track down. It's related to the trinket bars, and since those are the first bars written, it halts the entire update method when it fails. Bars will become active, but until your trinket drops (which may be never, if you use IDS or Broodmother), they can't update or die. Unfortunately, the only workaround is to disable the trinket bars. That, or you could try messing around with their options until you find a configuration that works (i.e. split them, only track cooldowns, etc.).
I'm not sure what's up exactly but this mod has completely stopped working for me. I have it set to run out of date addons, it responds to /saa but there's no option for it in the addon list anymore and the bars don't pop up when I do any of my spells.
I know this was working just the other day and there haven't been any patches or anything so I'm not sure what's wrong.
EDIT: Okay, when I turn off oRA3, it works again. I thought these two mods were working together last week but I might not be remembering correctly. Whatever it is, they're not working together now.
If there is a problem where your bars are showing up, but with no text and not depleting, turn off your trinket bars.
If this does not fix the issue, that is when you should post here asking if something can be fixed. Chances are it won't be, since I haven't touched SAA in almost 6 months and have been retired for a couple as well, but if it's a quick fix for something grossly broken it can't hurt to mention it. I have no idea what's causing the trinket bars to mess up, but there's a workaround and they're not particularly useful anyway.
I found myself on the PTR the other day, and, much to my agitation, SAA was having very serious lag issues. The lag only occurred, mind you, when I cast a spell, or shapeshifted. Launching into a rotation was nearly impossible. I figure that the issue was on my end, but I was wondering if anyone could shed light on what could possibly be happening, and maybe how to fix it? Much appreciated.
