Bandits Companions and Pets  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.1
by: secretrob [More]
The add-on depends on Bandits User Interface

This will create a companion frame showing all companions of the group or your companion when solo.
By default the frame is anchored to the bandits group frame position but there are options to reposition wherever you would like. Pet frames are available too, but are turned off by default. You can show "ALL" pets which will show all summons that have HP, like netch and Necro skeletons.

There are keybindings to summon/dismiss of each companion.
There are Bandits Sidebar buttons as well.
There is an option to auto resummon companion after using bank / vendor items.

I have added localization options. If anyone is willing to localize a missing language, please contact me.
1.5.1 - Only show icons in Bandits Sidebar for unlocked companions
1.5.0 - Added Isobel and Ember for High Isle 8.0
1.4.13 - Updated for 7.3.5 and added Font Size
1.4.12 - Fix out of date message.
1.4.11 - Updated for Deadlands. Rename to reflect pet bars and rewrote description.
1.4.10 - Bug fix for how resummon works to avoid "random" resummoning.
1.4.9 - RU Name fix
1.4.8 - German language added - provided by tim99

1.4.7 - Fix resummon not allowing dismiss of companion and other odd summoning issues.

1.4.6 - Fix issue where it would resummon companion when using back to back assistants.

1.4.5 - Added ability to detach frames from group UI and move them.
Added resummon of companion when using assistant (default true).
Cleaned up the menu.
Rewrote how pets are checked to fix an issue with multiple pets and using doors.

1.3.3 - Bug Fixes

1.3.2 - Updated to show shields for companions and pets.

1.3.1 - Only allow IsAbilityPermanent() abilities on sorcerer and warden to fix necro bones summons showing when All unchecked as it returns true from API.

1.3.0 - Added companion frame name format settings. Default Name.
Converted to localized format and created en lang.
Changed companion info to pull from IDs and have no hard coded settings.

1.2.2 - Allow showing pets without companions being summoned

1.2.1 - Added personal pets (up to 4) - Known issue: Non morphed only show with the Show All option*

The frames are only movable when the Unlocked is checked, otherwise it locks itself to the default group frame position.

I will look into font size for a future update.

This is the only reasoning that I have to support that this addon is causing the game to crash.
Unfortunately, the standard game logs don't provide any helpful information, and I've no clue how else to debug such a thing, but I am glad to try something else out if you believe that the error is not from here.
The only way to be 100% sure would be to disable every addon other than Bandits UI and Bandits Companions and still if it still crashes.
Sadly, after a couple of days of no-crashes, it crashed again a few times in a row yesterday, even though this addon was disabled. So, back to the drawing board for me!
... it really boggles me that this isn't discussed more given how many people use Bandit UI ...

Although this indicates that the issue isn't with this addon, and that my results were coincidental, it would be worth to note that that crashes only happen while either in a PVP area or while in a Dungeon/Trial.

Incidental, but I was having the same issue. Crashes every day while doing strenuous activities, and sometimes just standing around at Vvardenfell in peak hours. I tried disabling addons, everything. Then I realized multithreaded rendering had been turned on by default by ZoS. I turned that off, and the crashes stopped. Maybe it's just that my processor is old, or whatever, but that was what fixed it for me.

then I get the following text "Мирри Элендис^Fx{1,2}".
I think you'd be better off trying to use the standard method of removing an extension from a name from ZOS instead of using the gsub function.
Lua Code:
  1. /script d(zo_strformat(SI_COMPANION_NAME_FORMATTER, GetCompanionName(GetActiveCompanionDefId())))
Thanks for all of the detail. I'll look into fixing it.

Edit: Pushed out a fix. Thanks!

I think you my be running an older version of the addon as line 494 is not part of the SafetyCheck function. The current version is 1.4.7.

I added an extra check in the latest version that might fix this error. I am unable to reproduce it and it's on two very different lines of code between those versions, but from 1.3.0 - 1.3.1 a check was added on a pet unit information and I added an extra check in that section if it thinks you have a pet, but cannot find the information on it.

If it still happens in 1.3.3, please let me know.

Thanks.
The error message now came only 1x. After that, it could no longer be reproduced. I have a suspicion that another addon is causing me problems. I'll keep you informed when I find something.
