ShockAndAwe (formerly DisqoDice)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: moved to Curse
by: Pericles [More]
I'm moving the latest version downloads to the Curse.com site this is due to the pain of keeping two addon sites going. Also because Curse.com makes it very easy to update. All I need to do is to right click on project folder and click submit, and it uploads changes and creates zip files for me as well as maintaining the change log and problem tickets system.

So this addon is very very much under active development (as of 7th Nov 2008) its just that the main page is now on Curse.com

Please note the version here is already out of date.

Get the latest version here

Many thanks for the kind words. I knew I'd be lost without this addon in WotLK and so took it on board to update.

Having reviewed the code. I have added a lot of new functionality in particular to do with automatically honoring talent choices (Imp.SS, Reverberation), whereas the old version either ignores the talents or does it through manual config.

This afternoon I have done a massive amount of work and added a lot of extra features. Version 2.1 should be available once I've tested it in game and got the dry-coded bugs out.

It is my aim to make this addon the number one must have for Enhancement Shamans so if there are any feature suggestions from anyone NOW is the time to make your voice heard.

I would be much obliged to anyone who can point out any talent/armour/trinket or similar device in game that changes our cooldowns in any way.

eg: 4 piece Arena kit bonus reduces Stormstrike by 1 sec.

I'm unfortunately not in beta to test or comment on functionality. I would however like to suggest adding shared media support to allow users to make it fit aesthetically into their ui. I've edited my local copy of Disqodice for live to use a different statusbar texture and to remove the border. It would be nice to have an option that didn't involve altering the addon code myself.

Can you clarify what you mean by shared media support? I've not come across that with regard to wow addons. Is this a subset of the Ace Libraries that allows texture choices?

If so then certainly I will look at including that as I aim to make it as good as I can. Although you will forgive me if I concentrate first on the actual functionality of the addon and leave the aesthetics for later.

However if its simply a matter of integrating another Ace Library so you can skin the addon to look consistent then of course that makes sense to include asap.

I look forward to clarification of what exactly you are after.

Edit: On doing a few google searches I can find SharedMedia & SharedMediaLib as Ace addons.

I can find instructions for USERS to install these addons however I have not found instructions for addon AUTHORS to write to to USE these addons. If anyone can provide a link for addon AUTHORS that says how to write code to allow users to use shared media with your addon then please leave the details here.

Alright, playing around with the settings a bit (which btw I hate messing with settings via /saa bars etc etc, I wish it would work with the AddOn Preferences mod from ace or what not that I got when I got pitbull) --- bitching and whining aside, I found an issue with the scaling.

Whenever I tried to set the scaling the bars would disappear and I could not get them to reappear via /saa bars display or by resetting the scale to 100 or to "default". I tried using the scale "90" to make this occur.

Doing /saa bars reset fixed the issue albeit making me start over with my preferences =).


Also, if I type a setting such as, "saa bars width" and don't insert a number, it would be nice if it would show you the Default. For example when it replies to the command maybe:

'/saa bars width: " - expected number' and then like, tabbed over a few spaces say, 'Default - xxxx"

That's all for now before I go to sleep. I look forward to your reply/updated build =P

Thanks again for taking over the mod. Sorry for the wall of text, hopefully I was helpful though!



P.S. love the new watershield bar graphics/text font, its perfect/awesome ! and works with lightning shield xD

Please don't be afraid of Wall of Text, I am more guilty than most of WOTs. I actually welcome detailed discussion of pros and cons of the addon and suggestions for improvements. I would ask though that you include the version number that you are talking about so I know if you have d/l the latest yet (note to self add a /saa version command).

The new version 2.12 I put up last night (I am in the UK so time is GMT/BST for me) has some support for the config addon panel from Blizzard. The scaling bars issue may now have been fixed as I noted that I missed a parameter in changing the values, but to be honest I haven't really tested that properly yet. Some solid beta testing by others and reporting back what works and what doesn't would be much appreciated.

There is some option I believe in AceConfig that turns on displaying current value/defaults but I haven't tried looking into that properly yet. I suspect its a fairly simple function call or parameter of AceConfig to set. If anyone knows to save me searching it would be much appreciated.


Regarding WowAceUpdater downloads from http://files.wowace.com, btw you do use WowAceUpdater don't you? You don't go through the pain of manually updating your Ace addons? :

The current WowAceUpdater looks for things on the main trunk not on branches (typically betas). It is not recommended that we have addons in the trunk that don't work at all on live. This is to prevent problems with people getting the addon and then moaning it doesn't work at all because they can't read that its patch 3.0 only.

However if you have the addon in your live addons folder then the day patch 3.0 hits the live servers, I will merge the branch into the trunk, and your WowAceUpdater will automatically update it to the latest version. Thereafter if you run your WowAceUpdater before you start your game you will always have the latest versions of all your addons and more importantly their libraries will all be updated too.

couldn't sleep and decided to check this -- the version is in fact 2.12, and did not seem to have any config options under the Blizzard AddOns interface area, other than an About option about the mod and what not, nothing to *configure* per se.

And yea, *sometimes* I go through the pain of updating *some* mods manually as such like that, but only really important ones, which is Omen, and would be DQD/SAA if it were up there =P

It's an OCD thing, heh. Hope to hear back from you!

P.S. Three suggestions I don't see being *too* hard to add, heh =P

Suggestion 1: Add a text timer to the right of the shock bar, under the stormstrike bar, indicating the amount of time left on the Flame Shock debuff on the target.

Suggestion 2: In compliance with suggestion #1, in the shock bar if the player had just used Flame Shock, put inside the shock bar, "Earth Shock Next" and vice versa, could prove helpful. Make it toggle-able though, might be annoying for PvP.

Suggestion 3: Display the number of Stormstrike charges remaining on the target in the stormstrike bar, sort of the way to track Maelstrom charges, except maybe a slightly bigger, bolder number in the stormstrike bar, that is like, "4" "3" "2" "1" "No Charges Up"
Maybe play around with that 2nd suggestion a bit, but I would find both to be extremely helpful/useful!

P.S. 2.0 - In reference to the SharedMedia thing, if you download the Addon there is a text file inside the folder named, INSTRUCTIONS for MyMedia.txt -- might help you, might not! Hope that was helpful =) Take it easy, will keep you updated as I test more!

Interesting my version 2.12 has options in the Blizzard panel. This may well be an Ace addons issue on your addons.

The primary reason you should avoid manually updating your ace addons is libraries being out of date.

For example you can download updates to things like Omen which will of course be built and tested working with the latest libraries as its under constant development. So it will have all the new libraries embeded.

However you leave AnOldAddon to rot and never update it. It still has its embeded libraries but they were versions that Noah used.

Now what happens Wow starts and it loads your addons. AnOldAddon happens to load first and loads the ancient versions of the libraries. Then Omen loads and sees that the library it needs is already loaded, so it DOESN'T load its NEWER copy it uses the ancient one embedded in AnOldAddon.

You then play your game and wonder why Omen is crashing or behaving oddly, and think they must not have tested it properly, and hope it will be fixed in a later version. When in fact the problem is AnOldAddon and its libraries.

If you use WowAceUpdater on the other hand it updates ALL your embedded libraries so that they are all the same version. Result no more strange unreproducible bugs.



Now to your actual points

1) I anticipate the next version will have a Lava Burst bar and that this bar will show if Flame Shock is on your target (ie: if a 5 stack maelstrom instant LvB could guarantee crit) My problem with testing is that I've been so busy updating & testing the addon I'm barely 20% into lvl 70 and we get LvB at lvl 75.

2) I could put an icon for FS or ES next to the shock bar to indicate next in rotation. It also occurs to me that with the new ThreatAPI calls I could put in a Wind Shock icon if your threat goes over 100%. To remind you to drop your threat asap as if you reach 110% you pull aggro.

With all of these additions I would plan on making them optional as some will like a minimalist frame others (like me) will want all the data they can get. So I can put it all in then add configuration options to remove them for people that prefer the minimalist stuff. It does mean that new versions will have stuff added before it becomes optional.

3) Regarding SS charges. This can be added to the bar quite easily I think however is it really needed? ie: What can you DO about it? With Maelstrom 5 charges you can insta-cast. But with no SS charges you can do??? I'm not wanting to add stuff thats extra clutter if it doesn't aid decision making, extra stuff just becomes a distraction. The shocks idea aids decision making.

Re: SharedMedia I am aware of the "INSTRUCTIONS for MyMedia.txt" file, this is instructions for USERS though not addon AUTHORS. Thanks for the effort though.

Sorry, I should have clarified. Yes, I was referring to LibSharedMedia-3.0 support. It's an Ace Mod that allows addons to pull various media files from the SharedMedia addon. I think the API you need is at http://www.wowace.com/wiki/LibSharedMedia-3.0 but I'm not sure if that's everything you'd need. I'm only familiar with its use as an end user, not as a coder.

If you need a list of mods that have LibSharedMedia-3.0 support to use as reference I'm sure I can list off a few for you.

Hope that helps!

My understanding is that LibSharedMedia-3.0 is deprecated in favour of SharedMediaLib. Various comments on the wowace.com forums suggest that the author updated this last and recommends it over LibSharedMedia-3.0.

However I haven't seen any documentation for authors as to how to use the Library. I may have to do some trawling through some addons that use it to try to work out what the issue is.

However if it comes to having to trawl through other peoples code attempting to work out how stuff works then it slips dramatically down the priority list. Its so much easier reading documentation than having to hack away on someone else's stuff.

A list of mods that have SharedMedia support would however be useful.

Pitbull, Quartz, Omen, I believe are a few.

Will also begin testing 2.13 of SAA =)

Looks like I won't be able to put in Lava Burst until the expansion goes live. Blizzard have confirmed their US bias and are intent on withholding lvl 80 premades from beta testers outside the US.

This means I would have to spend ages going through content and actually levelling to 75 spoiling my enjoyment of everything being fresh and new when I experience it with my fellow guild mates. Thus I won't get Lava Burst until I hit 75 on live. I can code in something for lava burst and ask that others in the US test it. However I won't be able to test it myself.

Do I have any volunteers in the US beta with a premade or levelled to 75 Shammy that can assist testing Lava Burst?

Has there always been an audio component to when the bars timer runs out? I have just started noticing a light "plink" like noise when bars empty...even if those bars are disabled. I can't find anywhere to disable this if it is, in fact, Shock and Awe that is the culprit (it may be another addon that is making the noise itself, but it is definitely coming exactly when the bars timer runs out.)


Disregard, it was MSBT that was making the ping noise alerting me to when my CD's were up.
