Capping  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v6.1.01
by: funkydude , totalpackage

Capping is a battleground timer mod with some extras.

Current Features:

  • All battlegrounds/arenas have start timers
  • Ashran - Event timers, battle timer, graveyard timer
  • Alterac Valley - Node timers, auto quest turnins, and sync
  • Arathi Basin - Node timers and final score estimation
  • Eye of the Storm - Flag respawn timer, flag carrier display, and final score estimation
  • Isle of Conquest - Node timers and siege engine timer
  • Warsong Gulch - Flag respawn timer and flag carrier display with health percent
  • Wintergrasp - Start timer, wall alerts, and auto show zone map
  • Zone Map - Change scale, narrow, and hide border
  • Other - Port expiration timers, queue wait timers, scoreboard/capture bar/vehicle seat repositioning

How to use:
  • Show options - "/capping" or right-click on a timer bar/anchor
  • Toggle anchor - left-click on a timer bar or use options menu
  • Send time info to SAY - shift left-click on that timer bar
  • Send time info to BG - ctrl left-click on that timer bar
  • Hide timer bar (also leaves queue if related) - ctrl, shift, or alt right-click on that timer bar
  • Target carrier (in WSG or EotS) - left-click on the carrier's display
  • Send carrier info to BG - ctrl left-click on the carrier's display

Why no auto-release and auto-join?:
  • I try not to promote bad habits in my mods.
  • No auto-release because knowing when you should or should not release is a part of being a smart player in battlegrounds. For example, say there is five seconds left to capture blacksmith and you die there. Auto-release will send you to the starting area, but if you wait five seconds, you release to blacksmith graveyard.
  • Another reason not to use auto-release is to have time to spy on the flag carrier after a failed kill attempt.
  • Auto-join was useful when there were single queues and long wait time/afk time. Today is different, of course.
  • I'm not telling you how to play, just giving you my reasons.

Why no convenient "Incoming" and such buttons?:
  • The users and I had a discussion about this before when Capping was on wowace. If spoiled, the users would not type something important if there's no lazy way to do it. Am I right?.
  • Messages probably no mod covers:
    1. Incoming? Well, how many? From which direction?
    2. Incoming BS. Oh wait, they're going LM now.
    3. Incoming BS, but we're all here already. I mean fight at the flag, they're capping.
    4. Need help at MT...3 enemies behind
    5. Incoming DR...3 stealth
    6. Flag carrier going ramp side, almost dead
    7. Flag carrier on the way up the roof, behind tree
    8. ...and so on
  • Don't you love seeing "INCOMING BS" "INCOMING BS" "INCOMING BS" with 2 enemies incoming and 5 people already defending? After about 5 more come to help chase these 2 kills, you get spammed "BS CLEAR".
  • Plenty of standalone mods that do this, so use those if needed.

Known issues:
  • Narrow map setting will not work if Mapster is installed. Disabling the battlemap module in Mapster will fix this.

Fix EoTS flag respawn time.
Fix WSG end timer bar restarting frequently.
Fix landmark error when zoning.
Improve the queue time code and always show a paused queue.
Add flag assault counter for EotS.
Start WSG remaining time bar earlier.

Re: AV Timers problem

Originally posted by Hansey
Hi there -

I didn't see my problem in this thread, so I'm not sure if I'm the only one having it (which would imply that it's due to one of my other mods?).

Anyway, I've been using Capping for awhile - it's great. But lately the timers in AV have been going a bit wonky.

Example:

AV starts, Alliance cap Snowfall GY and the time pops up and starts counting down - no problem. Shortly thereafter, Horde caps Stonehearth, timer pops up and starts counting down.

Caps continue to happen, and I have a list of about 8 or 9 different timers counting down, and then at some point, for some reason, every single one of them resets to 4 minutes and begins counting down from there, and it refuses to add any new caps, or remove a timer when a building is defended/burned.

This started happening a few weeks ago, and I installed the latest update which didn't fix the problem. I deleted Capping entirely, along with its related files in teh Saved Variables directory and reinstalled from scratch, and still no luck. I've tried the "Request Sync" option in the options menu, and it doesn't seem to help either.

Anything else I can try? (or additional information I can provide?) It's an odd problem, but I love using this mod, and hope the problem can be figured out!

Thanks!
Install BugSack, which will put a minimap icon, when you get an error you will hear an audio trigger sound, click the minimap icon to see the error logs, you can highlight and press ctrl+c to copy the error frame and paste it here.
I use Prat and Cartographer as well and havent had any issue with Capping, which I've used with capping since BC.
An addon list may help, you may be running another BG addon which may conflict.

Re: Stutter in all BG's except AV

I have no external programs, virus scanners or anything in the background. I have a fast enough system to run this and didn't have any of these problems in any BG's before using Capping. I love the program too much to lose it as it makes BG's miserable.

Anyone ? Buhler?
A lot of addons are making changes to different library files, it may be one of those conflicting. Also try defragging your harddrive.

Try disabling all of your mods except Capping. If problems still occur, not much I can do if I can't reproduce it.

Try disabling Capping to see if it still happens.

Hm, well at first I tried disabling Prat, thinking that maybe Capping got its info from the chat log, but that didn't help.

Based on your above comment, I tried disabling Cartographer, which has been giving me intermittent errors anyway, but the problem remains with Cartographer disabled as well.

I do have errors being reported, via Swatter, but I never actually get any errors with this problem that is occurring, so I have no log of any sort to send you.

Any other suggestions?

P.S. Love this add-on... thanks for making it *not* do too much for you, I truly appreciate the effort to provide useful information without dumbing down the gameplay. Nice work!
Sorry, profiles is in my list of doing too much. It's simple to have a setup that works for all characters.

Profiles

I read back several pages but didn't see anything, so I apologize in advance if this has already been covered. I just wondered, does this/can this store separate profiles per character? I have different ui layouts per character but I can't figure out how to select different locations or bar textures for each.

P.S. Love this add-on... thanks for making it *not* do too much for you, I truly appreciate the effort to provide useful information without dumbing down the gameplay. Nice work!

Love the addon, used to use it alot.
Now I'm back from a break I CANNOT get the BG map to display, the timer bars are fine.
Have updated to latest version
Have disabled all other addons
Have had a look in config and Capping settings

Which file is the config stored in? the only thing I can think of is somehow the map anchor is way off screen?

Thanks for your help.

I thought about such a feature before, but I think I passed on it since people would get used to it and want it for everything (node timer, port timer, etc). That'll defeat the purpose of having timer bars. Also, if you're ignoring the timer bar, you're going to ignore the text messages as well.
