Ara Dotimer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11
by: Aranarth [More]
A debuff timer addon (beta).


This addon struggle for CPU/memory efficiency and as such doesnt have any in game configuration except for positionning.

To move timers, type "/dt" or "/dot" and a draggable purple window will appears. You can also mousewheel the window to change scale size. Once done with it, right-click the window to hide it or type the command again. You can also type "/dot grow" to have debuffs grow from "right to left" instead of "left to right".


It supports:
- PvP timers and diminishing returns.
- The following class abilities: warlock, druid, DK (partially), mage (untested), priest.
- Stacking debuffs.
- Talents and glyphs.

It will support later:
- Better focus/target visual effects.
- More classes.


If you have AddonLoader, this addon will load in delayed mode.
r10
- Fixed a random scalling issue.
- Added various debuff and glyph/pet effects (mostly DK)
- Update debuff durations of Plague Strike and Icy Touch.


r10
- Fixed a huge bug that was silently breaking the addon.


r9
- Finally Blizzard has implemented source IDs. This addon now takes full advantage of it. Ultra low CPU usage.
- Added "dontFade" field on spells. These won't fade; instead they will instantly disappear.
- Optimized combat event handling.


r8
- Removed a debug message.


r7
- Fixed a scaling issue.
- Added spells: Shadow Embrace (priest), Chains of Ice (death knight), Hungering Cold (death knight).
- Updated some glyphs.


r6
- Added the command "/dot grow" (or "/dt grow") to toggle the horizontal grow direction of timers (left or right). As a collateral change, it also reverse the duration order.


r5
- Fixed stacking numbers staying on screen.
- Fixed target level.
- Added stronger target/focus visuals (to improve/change/make less intrusive).
- Added spell: Fireball DoT (mage), .


r4
- Added support for PvP timers and diminishing returns.
- Added some missing spells: Frostbite (mage), Blackout (priest), Shadowfury (warlock).
- Extended the fade duration up to 15 sec to give a rough idea of when a diminishing return has reset.


r3
- Fixed a bug that was preventing users of AddonLoader to get the saved anchor position.
- Added a way to change scale: simply mousewheel over the purple window (due to how Blizzard implements scaling, you will have to move the window afterwards).
- Added class: Priest.


r2
- Added: stacking debuffs. (Im open for visual improvements.)
- Added: workaround(*) to handle refresh/dose until those events have proper source info. So this addon should now be usable in raid; with some restrictions: when the refresh/dose event occurs, the target must be one of target/focus/mouseover for the refresh to be handled.
- Changed: minor metatable improvements.
- Added: mage spells. (Alpha, not tested.)

(*)For those interested, here are the implementation details:

There's now an efficient way to retrieve informations about a specific player debuff without having to scan everything, but the spell name and rank must be provided. As I only retrieve name/rank info one time and cache it, if in the same session you start using another rank of the same spell that as the same base duration, refresh/dose won't be handled. It shouldn't be much of a problem since downranking is dead, and I hope that when we will XP in Northrend (and change spell in the same session), the refresh/dose events would provide sources informations.


r1
- Initial release.

Heya, is there anyway to remove the background when your DoTs are up? I find it rather ugly =p Or change the color would fit perfectly

There's no frame besides the anchor (/dot), and I only use strings that embed icons. But it's not behaving properly with scaling so I will probably split in string + texture before it reachs release. Still, there won't be anything to skin unless an extra decorative texture is added. Asheyla's DoTimer is probably what you want, there's frames everywhere.
I was thinking of having an overlay on the icons, but if that is not possible with the current mod, i'm guessing i'll just stick with it as it is.

Any tips on how to do this? Or even a possibility to use it as an addon to the original addon?

One small request: can u tell me where i can modify in lua the way the icons show ? i would like the icons start from right and go left instead of it is now left - > right. I keep my dot frame right of screen and looks a bit odd when it`s so much space left between screen edge and first debuff icon. Thank u again

Maybe bold red color or a icon or a frame around the timer(s)

I like showing debuffs in bar style like classtimer,dotimer,.. more than icons with timer text, but don't know how complex it is to realize and blows up the code.

You can already scale the size, though it's not perfect: /dot and scroll the purple window (and move it back ._.).

I agree the visual effect to distinguish current target is pretty bad. I will try to make it better and extend it to the focus.

The bar style is not planned (I don't like it ) but could be done in my spare time. It would cost, at best, a memory increase for those using icons, and both memory and CPU increase for those using bars.

The problem with option requests is: if I accept all of them I will end up with an Asheyla's Dotimer.

Right now, Im working on a way to change the scale of timers. Something like mousewheel over the purple window. (But one thing annoys me: when we scale things, they move, due to how Blizzard implemented the UI scale positionning, Im trying to counter this so the frame grow/shrink as if it was at the center of the screen).

I will look later for efficient ways to handle grow directions, but I take my time to design such things properly
