So, I've figured out the issue with the minion bar I think.
Looking at the files, the both the pet and the minion controls are located in the "Pet" file. From what I understand from the necro I play with is basically it's tied to the Pet bar and doesn't display until you have a pet up.
This is fine for a necro or a shaman, but doesn't help a druid, whose pet functions as a minion. This also explains why I can never get the controls up for the pets you can summon with contracts from diplomacy.
My next step is fixing the problem. I meant to do it this weekend, but ended up working instead
I'll do my best to get to it this week or this weekend.
Also, I've been having issues getting the right click menu drop down for targets to show up. I've tried everything I can think of (including talking to Apoco) and would love any help/suggestions/etc people can offer. There's plenty of ways to contact me through messenger services, or just PM me and any help would be greatly appreciated.
