Parrot

188 - Profile(s) not saving

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install version v1.10.22-2-g87818b2
2. Change everything the way you want it to be.
3. Log out, log in and all is reset back to standard. So all changes made are lost.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
That the changes should be saved in the profile. Profile is being reset on log out.
I reverted back to version v1.10.22 and all works as expected. Profiles and changes are being
saved and still there after log out, log in.
Haven't tested it yet with the versions that came out after v1.10.22-2-g87818b2 because i do
not want to change everything back every time i log in.

What version of the product are you using?
Exact version: v1.10.22-2-g87818b2
Locale: enUS

Are you using Parrot with embedded libs (if you don't know that means yes)?
Yes

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No

Please provide any additional information below.

    I took the leap and installed version 1.10.23 (after saving my Parrot.lua) and logged in and out on several chars and the problem is gone. No idea why :-)

    The difference in Parrot.lua i can see between 1.10.23 and 1.10.22-2-g87818b2 is that 1.10.23 starts with:

    ParrotDB = {
    	["namespaces"] = {
    		["CombatEvents"] = {
    			["profiles"] = {
    				["Default"] = {
    					["dbver"] = 3,
    

    and 1.10.22-2-g87818b2 starts with:

    ParrotDB = {
    	["namespaces"] = {
    		["CombatEvents"] = {
    			["profiles"] = {
    				["Default"] = {
    					["Incoming"] = {
    						["Skill immunes"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Minus",
    						},
    						["Skill reflects"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Minus",
    						},
    						["Heals over time"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Plus",
    						},
    						["Melee dodges"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Plus",
    						},
    						["Melee damage"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Minus",
    						},
    						["Environmental damage"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Minus",
    						},
    						["Heals"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Plus",
    						},
    						["Skill DoTs"] = {
    							["scrollArea"] = "Incoming Minus",
    

    No idea if that is helpful in anyway.

    All in all it's working again. Thank you for your response.

    Also: maybe after backing up your SavedVars/parrot.lua you could try remove it (and the .bak)

    I was not able to reproduce this issue. I tried my play-system, my dev-system, and a setup with only Parrot present. In all cases, profiles saved and loaded just fine (logout->login).

    Could you post a list of addons you are using. A copy of your SavedVars maybe also give me some clue (<WoW>/WTF/Account/<Accoutname>/SavedVariables/Parrot.lua)
