Ellipsis (Multi-Target DoT Timers)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.2.2
by: Kith [More]

Due to extensive changes, nearly all text in Ellipsis was altered rendering language translations for anything but English inaccurate. Anybody willing to take on the task of translating the mod (and the options especially) into other languages, please PM me and we can sort out getting the mod translated once again. Thanks!

Ellipsis (indicating omission)
Typography - A mark consisting of three periods, colloquially known as 'dot-dot-dot'.


Ellipsis is an addon that features multi-target aura tracking for spells that you (and your pet) cast on others. Additionally it keeps track of your pets spells when cast on others, tracks ground-targeted AoEs, temporary minion summons and totems. Cooldowns for your items, pet abilities and your own abilities can also be tracked. Options can be accessed by typing either /ellipsis or /...

Terminology
Aura - HoTs, DoTs, Buffs & Debuffs cast by you or your pet
Unit - Yourself, your pet, party members or hostile mobs (basically anything you can hurl spells at)

Auras, Units & Unit Groups
All auras you cast are attached to the unit they are cast on and these are then seperated into one of 7 groups when displayed. The first 4 groups are based on what the unit is, the 5th is a special case (see The Non-Targeted Unit below), and the last 2 are overrides for your current target and focus to keep them seperate (if desired) from every other displayed unit. Each group can be assigned to any of the 7 available display frames, and multiple groups can be assigned to a single frame.

Example: Assign all harmful units to frame [1], and your target to frame [2] to quickly reference the DoT situation on your current target 'pulled out' from the mess of all your other DoTs.

The Non-Targeted Unit
Some auras exist without any unit to attach themselves to such as temporary minion summons, totems, and ground-targeted AoE spells. These are all grouped together under the special Non-Targeted unit, which is the sole member of the non-targeted group (and can be assigned to a display frame and sorted just like any other unit).

Installation
There are two 'mods' included with Ellipsis, the main mod itself (folder: Ellipsis) and the configuration options (folder: Ellipsis_Options). Only the first is required to use the mod, though you will not be able to change options without the latter; Ellipsis_Options is also Load on Demand and thus won't use up any resources until you begin changing options (which is also why its a seperate folder/addon).

L.CDMinDuration = 'Min CD Duration'
L.CDMinDurationDesc = 'Set the minimum duration of cooldowns (in seconds) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.\n\nThis setting will not go below 2 dseconds so as to avoid all cooldowns showing up due to the GCD.'

Fixed glitch with mages due to Water Elemental now being permanent or nothing rather than a talented duration buff.

-- 2.0.2 --
- 4.0.3 release.

-- 2.0.1 --
- Class Data changes made. I'm sure I missed some as I haven't been properly following the class changes for 4.0.1 so please let me know if anything errors, isn't tracked or has the wrong timer.

- Shadowflame: 8 -> 6 seconds
Death Knight:
- Removed Unholy Blight
Priest:
- Removed Shadow Fiend

Once again, i'm sure i've missed some (probably newly added abilities), so please let me know if any problems occur.

-- 2.0.0 --
- Base update for compatibility with 4.0.1. No in-depth testing done due to lack of available time though most things should work. Things that are likely to be broken will apply to new/changed spells that had special requirements (such as some AoE's and shaman totems). Please let me know of any issues with these.

-- 1.5 --
- ToC Update

-- 1.4 --
- Fixed bug with detecting cooldown of Holy Shock & Penance (thanks Jzar)
- Fixed bug with Searing Totem duration detection (I swear there weren't 10 ranks last time I played!)
- Updated internal Libs to most recent versions

-- 1.3a --
- Corrected some missing translations in the zhTW Options locale.

-- 1.3 --
- Actually removed the Poison Cleansing Totem entry instead of just claming to.

-- 1.2 --
- Made the following changes to ClassData (internal spell ID references):
- - Divine Hymn: changed ID
- - Disease Cleansing Totem: replaced by Cleansing Totem
- - Poison Cleansing Totem: removed
- - Polymorph: added serpent, cat, rabbit and turkey

-- 1.1 --
- Made compatible with 3.1 LUA changes.

-- 1.0 --
- Full release.

-- 0.78 RC2 --
- Updated totem durations to new values.
- Added Feral Spirit to 'aoe' timer tracking.

-- 0.77 RC1 --
- Missing translations fixed.
- You can now add 'Do Not Track' entries by drag-n-drop on spell and item icons and all non-needed information should be stripped to ensure the setting works correctly
- You can now Ctrl+Right-Click on totem timers to destroy that particular totem.
- Shifted check for mage talents in regards to water elemental. Talent data was loading 'after' my check initially. Mages should get an accurate timers for water elemental now if they have the appropriate talents.

-- 0.76 --
- I'm an idiot and left debugging code in the WOTLK version, its gone now.

-- 0.75 --
- Will now track timers on target dummies.
- Cooldowns will now be announced to raid when in a raid group, and not party
- Rewrote notification system to handle locales better.
- Translations added for German (by [email protected]'jaeden) and French (by [email protected] éternels).

-- 0.74 --
- Changed a Blizzard function call after its name was changed in a recent build to allow options to work properly again via /ellipsis
Note: The next version will most likely be 0.75 for both WOTLK and LIVE when required, as 0.74 is a WOTLK-only update.

-- 0.73 --
- Rewrote totem destruction handling to use a new event-based system (via an event I never previously knew existed), totems timers should now properly update when destroyed whether its manually, via Totemic Call or by going out of range.
Important: Needs testing on WOTLK servers as i'm unable to do it myself (no Shaman :<)

-- 0.72 --
- Added the option to colour target identifiers based on the class of the target.
- Cleared player, pet and aoe timers appropriately on death.
- Default location for the Prominent Targets anchor shifted slightly so it does not overlap the Targets anchor.
- Fixed an error that was causing announcements to goto party chat instead of raid chat when in a raid.

-- 0.71 --
- If you cast a totem of one type while another totem of the same type is active, the timer should be destroyed as appropriate.
- AoE list updated for WOTLK version undoing a mistake made when 0.70 went live that prevented tracking of all 'wotlk only' aoe and unique spells.

-- 0.70 --
New Features:
- Prominence: You can now make No Target (AoE), Player and Pet timers promienent, that is, attach them to a seperate anchor from the rest of your aura targets.
- Cooldown Offsets: You can now offset cooldown timers (icons) from the main bar, either with or without a 'tag' linking them back to their position on the bar.
- Transparency: You can now make certain gui elements transparent via their colour pickers, these include most of the cooldown bar elements and the background for aura timers.
- Pet Tracking: You can now track buffs you cast on your pet (used to be a package deal with player tracking).
- Profiles: Profiling options for settings have been included, if you are updating from a version of Ellipsis prior to 0.7, then the default profile for everyone is "Default", for new users, an individual profile will be generated for each player. In either case, you will need to change settings if you wish the alternative behaviour.
- LibSink: Ellipsis now uses LibSink for visual notification output for expired and broken timers, this includes options to output to all main Blizzard locations (raid warning, error frame, chat etc) as well as Channel, SCT and MikSBT options.

Fixes:
- Redone the options panel to be more informative and to better group option categories.
- Aura scanning re-written to more accurately track the status of player, pet, target, and focus timers. Please give this extra attention when testing.
- Aura Target Layout re-written to fix a few glitches and to improve performance, please give this extra attention (mainly the Configure Target Display and Max Targets options, please try as many combinations as you are willing).
- Fixed many other glitches and errors (hopefully all now, but I doubt it :p)

Known Bugs:
- When using offset tags for cooldown timers, the tag will bulge slightly while in motion, this is an artifact of how WoW renders the textures and there is no fix I know of for the time being. It is less prominent the further a timer moves, so the larger your bar and the shorter the timescale, the less pronounced it will be.

-- 0.68 --
- Fixed bug in Secondary Scanning which was causing lua errors (and for it not to work).
- Fixed a few spelling errors in the options.

-- 0.67 --
- Added the option to show raid icons on timer targets (needs additional testing that it accurately updates timers when icons change mid-combat)
- Fixed a few bugs introduced by the 'show stack in text' option.
- Moved cooldown icons 'behind' the timescale text to allow for reading the times.
- Fixed config updates to recognise the 'trackPlayers' setting properly.

-- 0.66 --
- Fixed a glitch where stacks weren't showing up properly for stackable spells (eg, Lifebloom)
- Hopefully fixed a glitch with cooldowns for some spells not showing up.
- Added an option to display spell stacks as part of the name display on the timer (this option will result in no stack being shown if your using icon mode as it has no spell text).
- Fixed a glitch where the secondary scan was picking up debuffs regardless of your options.

NOTE: For additional testing of the cooldowns on spells, added a debug option which will give you internal feedback about what the mod is up to. To activate it, type "/run Ellipsis.db.profile.debug = true" (without quotes) and to disable, the same but substitute 'true' for 'false'. If your not getting spell cooldowns showing up, please enable this and see if a) the spell missing is listed as being tracked and b) that its picked up when a cooldown event happens (obviously one of the above is failing).

-- 0.65 --
- Fixed a small glitch which was preventing some timers showing up.

-- 0.64 --
- There are now two versions of the mod, one for LIVE servers and the other for the WOTLK beta, please download the appropriate one for your game installation.
- Cooldown functionality now implemented.
- Can toggle ability to track auras (buffs) on player.
- Moved the 'lock' button for gui movement to a more prominant place.
- Numerous other tweaks and fixes.

Re: How do I make this **** work?

When the options panel is open, there should be two panes, the right one contains the options you listed, the left one should be highlihgting Display Options (the right panel you see) and list about 10 more, all of which give the other options.

If you are not seeing this, and if the mod is not tracking DoT's immediately then something is either a) corrupt in your download or b) something in one of your other mods is conflicting for some reason. I've tested the version downloaded from WoWI on my copy of beta, with no other mods installed and it works fine. Can you please try the following:

a) PM me a screenshot of the options panel as you see it (or a link to an sshot)
b) Goto Options -> Game -> Help -> Display LUA Errors and turn it on, then type "/rl" into chat without quotes to reload the interface and if an error box comes up, tell me what it says.

As to your last question, i'll reserve judgement until I know if this is my fault or not

Okay I cant figure this shit out.

I am on beta, and I play a warlock.

I was referred to this shit by a post from EJ.

I download the addon, clicking on the download latest button.

I get a file Ellipsis_v0.73_WOTLK, I extract it to the interface addons folder.

I load up the game, I can see two blue bars - target and prominent target, and a thick grey bar.

I can access some options from using /ellipsis and /Ellipsis_Options (both take me to the same window)

In these options i see about 5 sliders for auras and cooldowns, a test button and a lock check box. Nothing else.

When I hit Test I see 3 sets or pretty green bars counting down. Fucking Awesome.

When i cast a dot - any dot - nothing shows up. Nothing, zilch zip, nada.

So tell me.. what the fuck am I doing wrong, am i kalgan's fucking bastard child, or is this piece of shit messed up big fucking time?

I dont have *any* other addons installed except recount and Quartz. Does this stink pile need ace or some other shit like that? If so list it somewhere god fucking dammit.

P.S. i would have left this crap to rot if it wasnt recommended over at EJ. Least I thought I could do is come here and make a post...

So which one is it? Am i an asshat or is this this fucked up?

Wow, I don't know why you even responded to that guy. You're not a paid customer-service representative from Microsoft - this is your hobby project. Tell him to go away and put him on ignore.

Anyway...

I'm currently using Asheyla's DoTimer on the retail servers (WoW 2.4.2) and it continues to work great for me, so I'll be using it until the WoW 3.02 patch is released.

On the PTR for 3.02, I tried the Ellipsis WotLK beta and - while it works - I can't set any options and I get the following error message when I type /ellipsis:

Error: attempt to call global 'InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToFrame' (a nil value)
File: Interface\AddOns\Ellipsis\Config.lua
Line: 159
Count: 1

To the extent that Ellipsis is functioning without my being able to move the timer bars or configure them, it looks great! However, my testing is stuck until I'm able to change the configuration options. Is there something I am doing wrong, or is this an error with Ellipsis?

Thanks for your great work!


edit: When I login with the Ellipsis_Options addon disabled, I do not get an error message, but I do get a message printed to the General Chat Log:
"Ellipsis: Please enable the Ellipsis_Options addon for option configuration."

As to the error, I have to admit i'm stumped as that function is a built-in Blizzard function (part of their UIOptionsFrame), i'll take a look on Beta to see if they've modified or removed the function.

As to your edit, thats intended that you can't change options if Ellipsis_Options is disabled. The options mod is LoD and so won't consume resources until needed (ie, when you type /ellipsis), and if your happy with your setup for sure, you can just disable it completely.

EDIT:Uploaded a new version that uses the (apparently renamed) version of the OpenToFrame function, so everything should be working right now, please let me know if you experience anything contrary to that.

Kith- 0.74 works great on the PTR! Really, really nice and I foresee a very smooth transition from Asheyla's DoTimer to Ellipsis once the 3.02 patch goes live.

Thank you very much for your work on this great addon.

Remove Current Timer w/o "blocking" it

Left-Click to Announce.

Shift+Right-Click to block this spell.

Can you add:
Right-Click to remove this timer.

The Right-Click would remove that specific timer from the display, but would not prevent the spell or effect that triggered that timer from triggering a displayed timer in the future.

The only problem with a right-click remove, is that spell will just come back again the next time that target is scanned for auras (either when its auras change or when a secondary scan catches it), unless you mean you want a temporary "don't show this spell again until the next fight" in which case I can add the spell to the DNT list but remove it post fight.

Yes, almost exactly! However, is it possible to store the aura AND the target so that the same aura applied to a different target in the same battle will be shown? Or perhaps assign some unique ID to every individual aura being tracked on every target, so that a temp-ignore affects just that ID but not any others of the same aura name.

Hmm... I have thought about this some more. Consider: A caster has Ellipsis set up so that he can track his castable buffs. While walking through his home city, he "ninja-buffs" people at random. This causes a large number of timers to appear on his screen, none of which the caster actually cares to track. However, if temporary aura ignores are cleared after combat, all of these will reappear, or not vanish at all since an end-of-combat event is not triggered.

Perhaps I can point you to the last version of Asheyla's DoTimer which works on the current 2.4.3 patch on the retail servers. Whenever a timer appears that I don't want to track anymore, but wish to track in the future, in or out of combat, a right-click on that timer removes it from my display. Often, in combat, that timer will just reappear - but that's OK, since such timers usually only get in the way out of combat.

I was originally going to add that option but couldn't think of a time when it would be needed. As you just pointed out, I obviously missed such a reason; i'll add the option to right-click-kill a timer in the next version; though like with DoTimer's version, that timer will just come right back again in combat within a few seconds most likely.

This was due to a 'hack' I used to prevent errant break messages appearing as a mob dies due to (on PTR) an aura event firing right as a mob dies with your buffs stripped, it did this by ignoring events that occur when the mob is at 1 hp (which target dummies are). I shifted this 'hack' to the 'removal' portion of the code rather than the start so it will track DoT's on dummies on the next version.

I'm not sure whats going on here as i'm able to open the options just fine on my Death Knight, can you please try logging your DK in with only Ellipsis running to see if its a conflict with some other mod please? (don't see why it owuld be though as its utilizing a blizzard function to open the option panel, and that function does exist as I just checked with an extracted blizzUI :/)

Okay, I started disabling addons to narrow it down, and it seems to be Blipstick's fault and not Ellipsis'. I've notified tekkub.

I'm debating what to think of this. On one hand, you copied the looks of my addon nearly identically. On another hand, I kind of deserved it, since I didn't update my addon in forever. Additionally, you didn't rip the code, and you certainly brought some new things into the addon that I didn't have.

On a final hand, I just finished my own rewrite of my addon, which is a step beyond what either this addon or my old version has to offer in terms of functionality (in my opinion, of course). So I suppose I'll simply accept the competition. This will be interesting.

Primarily, the mod was made due to my percieved 'death' of DoTimer and I wanted a replacement that retained the look and feel (being its what i'd used on my Lock ever since he was created) while still being fully compatible with the upcoming WOTLK (and later the current 2.4 patch); so I full admit that the mod was intended to 'look' like DoTimer from the surface while being my own work behind-the-scenes.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the new DoTimer brings as well, from what i've read, it sounds like you have some great ideas.
