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

Aye, very awesome - but needs a small markerbar or so where the latency is. Then this is truly amazing, might win back a lot of screen estate this way.

Eyes are usually where the cursor is anyways, so perfect alignment there.

This looks awesome. As soon as you get a latency bar on this I'm using it.

With this version at least the debug text ("ab") is shown at your mouse cursor. (can see the very small white text in the upper chat frame area)

But the debug messages are as expected.
Can't solve your problem at the moment - at least not remotely. I'm really sorry.

I uploaded a special "debug" version for you here:
http://www.scherbenweltkorps.de/CursorCastbar_DEBUG.zip

You could test this one and post the debug messages that are shown after you enter the world or after you enabled the "Show cast text" option.
Eventually I'm able to find the bug with these debug messages. But without any guarantee.
The text in the screenshot under the BLA comment i did is what happened after i turend off, then on again the show text function.. Nothin happened after i turned it off, so all the text under it is after i selected on..

And dont think my chat is always that large :P

This should display the text around your minimap.

/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(CursorCastbarChars["arialnarrow32"]["A"].no)
This should return the number 34 in you chat frame.

*Little edit*
In your screens I see you are using the german text.. Does it matter im on an English realm? Just a question
Checked it again with a fresh (german) client on a english realm. 1.2.1 is working.
Do you use a language pack? Are your spells shown in english?
Could you please try to delete the saved variables?
