CursorCastbar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.5b
by: Duugu, humfras

CursorCastBar adds circular cast bar(s) to your mouse cursor.

Cast bar, Global Cooldown Bar, Mirror Bar, Remaining cast time, Spell Name, Spell Icon, and more.

The configuration is done via the Blizzard interface options.


TO DO (in no particular order):

  • Healing Bar - incoming heal/overheal for current cast/target
  • optional focus castbar
  • optional round spell icons
  • modifier/key to temporary hide the bars or set the opacity to very low (eg in critical situations)
  • more bar layout options (start point, end point, etc)
  • text for the mirror bar


Known Bugs:
  • Bug: Mac client crashes with high-res textures. This is known a game bug within the Mac client. It happens with large textures above 512*512 pixels.
    Solution: Don't choose the high-res bar textures. Choose textures 1, 2, or 3. The game shouldn't crash with them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear user


My WoW subscriptions end in may 2011. After more than six years playing WoW and developing addons I absolutely can't find a reason to continue. The direction Blizzard is steering with WoW is more than unfruitful.
The game is dead. It's an empty shell. A sad moment, but that's the way it is.


This means of course all of my addons are discontinued as from now. Thank you very much for using them and for providing me feedback and input. A very special thank you goes to the few people who donated for them. There would be much more and better stuff if more people would act like you. Thank you.


I hereby explicitly reject any attempts to continue, take over or reuse this addon, the addons source code, the contents or parts of it.
If you are willing and able to continue this addon I may grant you the right to do this if you contact me, ask for it, and convince me that you are able to do it in the long run.


Iím looking forward to meet everyone of you again in SWTOR.


All the best to you

Duugu

It's for everything at the moment. Was much easy to do than on a per-bar basis.
I could add a per-bar option if at least some people want that.


[edit] btw:
I'll do a little testing when I do dailies later, to see if I get the same problems as below
Any results from this?
Thx in advance.

Ive got a little problem :P well, problem.. I have moved the anchor to set over my character, so it looks lovely :P and I want the spell icon in the center of the castcircle, and the text over it.. But you coded it so it has the text behind the icon.. Can you code them so that you can select the strata or just basiccaly set the text on a higher strata than the icon

- New pages: "CastBar", "GCBar", "MirrorBar", "SwingBar", "SpellIcon", and "SpellText" with loads of new options

That'll be lovely to see when you get it coded in.

Also woot for spell icons, I hadn't even thought of that.

Thx a lot. I'll fix this asap.

Is the quest this one http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=11533 or this one http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=11543?

Which language version do you use? If you language is english, could you please specify the exact spell name of mage's portal?
Does this happen with all portals?

I'll add this to my to do list. Thank you

Hm. Yes. There are a lot of textures. It's the only way to rotate text. But the zipped addon's size isn't 5 MB.
I can't see the advantage of separate texture. Could you please exemplify this?

Static memory usage should never impact performance aside from loading times, unless you have like 512mb ram. And because the textures aren't loaded if they aren't being used, what exactly is your problem with it?

Personally, I wouldn't use an addon with 10+ directories included just because that makes my addons directory quite a lot harder to manage. I don't want to be bothered with deleting directories every time I update, or managing updates/maintenance on all those skin packs.

TLDR: It's perfectly fine the way it is. If it's not using an excessive amount of cpu/memory, then there's no reason to change it.

EDIT: I'll do a little testing when I do dailies later, to see if I get the same problems as below.

Textures

First off, really nice work. This addon is very visually appealing and quite functional. However, I'm not sure I'll be using it because I'm such a picky bastard. Here you have < 100kb of Lua, which is great. Then you have 5MB of textures, which is bad. But of course, they aren't loaded unless they're used, so memory usage is still around 130-150kb. Maybe provide separate "addons" that serve as font/texture storage?
