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

1) CCB is Patch-4.1-COMBAT_LOG_EVENT-ready, CCB would NOT work it isn't. It just uses an easier and nicer fix

2) The Cooldown Indicators are working for my Shaman's Riptide and Unleash Elements. Ensure you have entered a cooldown duration in the box above the one for the spell name.

CCB is using a static cooldown duration. My intends are to change it to use the actual cooldown duration of the tracked spell to update properly when it's cooldown duration is shortened or removed (e.g. by using Cold Snap as a mage).

Great to see that this indispensible add-on (indispensible for me, at least) will live on!

Continuation

Since Duugu retires from WoW, let's give him a farewell and best luck for his future paths.
I will try to keep up the high-quality work he showed with CursorCastbar.

update

Hello, is there an chance you could make the update needed to bring this to 4.1? As it is showing up as being out of date.

Thanks.

Spell indicators seem not to be working in 4.1.

Will update if I can narrow the problem or propose a fix.

Edit: OK, I have gotten it to work. If anyone wants to hotfix their own version, you need to make the following changes in CursorCastbar.lua between lines 700 and 745:

arg4 -> arg5
arg10 -> arg11

(in other words, change every occurrence of those variables, between the indicated lines - there should be 1 arg4 and 4 arg10's that need changing)

No guarantees that something else isn't broken, of course.

Hi duguu,

I got a little problem here. I've set the cast bar to be movable... only each time i exit game, it reset position. Doesnt move if i only log off though.

Nvm it does reset in both cases

Better late then never.

With 2.2.1 the settings are automatically saved to you current active profile.

Edit: This bug appears to be related to the default profile issues mentioned below. Checking the checkbox and saving the Default profile fixes it.

The option for hiding the Blizzard castbar appears to not be saved across play sessions.

To reproduce:
1) Log into the game world
2) Go into the interface options and check the "Hide Blizzard Cast Bar" checkbox
3) Click Okay and log out
4) Log back into the game world and open the interface options
5) The "Hide Blizzard Cast Bar" checkbox will be unchecked

This addon needs a simple "save" mechanism

The addon needs a choice of global/per character settings. The present method of creating profiles is awkward and as others have commented, anti-intuitive. Other than that I want you to know that since vanilla wow I have used Quartz and only JUST replaced it with your addon.

That's something.

I dealt with the other problem, I have one that concerns me more, on my hunter when I cast Steady Shot or Cobra Shot, if I get Auto Shot the castbar disappears like the SS or CS was fired. Can It be fixed?
