Wow crashed and the addon reset, All my saved macros and the pre-made ones are no longer there. Is there a way to restore them?
this has happened several times to me as well and I have yet to find a way to “restore” them. best I can suggest is to take a picture of your macros if you’ve made any changes to ones you’ve downloaded. ive tried to save the WTF folder contents and swap that out after a reset and it doesn’t work.
Bummer, thanks the the reply
GSE uses WoW’s mod variable storage system.
When you exit wow, it copies c:\path\to\WoW_retail\WTf\Account\YourAccountName\SavedVariables\*.lua to *.lua.bak and then writes any updates.
What this means is that if you immediately ALT+F4 and replace the GSE.lua file with the GSE.lua.bak file wallah! You could also backup periodically the GSE.lua file from that directory.
BONUS NOTES: You can do this for ALL your mods!!!
If however, you don’t ALT+F4 exit immediately you will wipe the .bak file when you exit the game.
