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

pics don't quite do it justice.. perhaps make a .gif animation to show people??


Love this addon, by far essential to minimalist UIs and graphically satisfying.

Thank you

I love this addon but the GCD calculation is incorrect. I realized this when testing it with different amounts of haste. As haste scaled the GCD timer was too fast and I couldn't cast again when it ran out. Comparing to Quartz showed this also.

I replaced line 284 which was:
CursorCastbarGC = (1.5 - (GetCombatRating(CR_HASTE_SPELL) * 0.000926471)) * 1000

With this:
CursorCastbarGC = (1.5 / (1 + (GetCombatRating(CR_HASTE_SPELL) / 3279))) * 1000

I got that formula from wowwiki and in game testing shows it to be much more accurate.

Thanks for writing the addon. It's helped me speed up my casting.

is it possible to use this circular castbar but not attached to the cursor? So I could set it someplace specific?

Nice mod. I use a Mac and couldn't figure out where to manually set the texture in order to get it to load without crashing. My alternative 'solution' was to delete the high res texture files. This appeared to force the addon to use a different texture file.

Looks good. I need to find out what other addon I'm using that is putting up a castbar. Having both wouldn't be a problem, but the interaction between that (perhaps X-Perl??) and this cause not only the addon based castbars to show up, but also the default bar.

Can this be moved off of the cursor and placed in a static location on screen? I have some ideas for a UI that this would fit into nicely.

Specifically one circle for player in one location, and one circle for target in another.

No, thats not possible.
The "font" is implemented via tga images - one image for each single character. (that's because it's not possible to rotate a real font string)
This means, to add a new font someone has to create a tga images for each character within the new font style. (app. 160 ... so this is a lot of work)
If you are willing to do this job please PM me and I'll provide you some details.

If I ever find some spare time I'll try to fix this. Thank you.

Don't choose the high-res bar textures. Textures 1-3 are low-res. The game shouldn't crash with them.

Guess I'll remove the high-res textures for Mac users with one of the next releases.
Super awesome, thanks. It wouldn't have even occurred to me, but now that I know, I'm set -- I can change settings on the Linux box, then copy the WTF file over to the Mac. I owe you a donation.

Causes Mac client to crash? WTF?

I mostly play on a Linux box using WINE, but I am gonna be travelling, so I thought I'd update my Mac install.

CursorCastbar (1.5) consistently causes the Mac client to crash on login. I haven't narrowed this down much further yet. I'm playing windowed, if it matters.

I'm pretty sure this is by definition a game bug, not an addon bug, but it may be possible to avoid triggering it.

(p.s.: Flat broke right now, but you're on the list of addon authors who deserve some money, this is an awesome addon.)

(Reedited: I'm actually using 1.5, so I'll try current.)
(Re-reedited: No, wait, it's 1.7, the toc just says 1.5.)
