Capping  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.4.003
by: totalpackage [More]

* Capping is now in maintenance mode. If anything needs to be changed/added, please contribute the code.

Capping is just another battleground timer mod with some extras.

YouTube Intro



Current Features:

  • All battlegrounds/arenas have start timers
  • 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
  • Looking For Group - LFGStatusIcon support for LFD wait/port timers

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.

Final score on french client

Hello, I contact you about the problem to display the final score in battleground on French client, would there be a way to ensure that is displayed, even fiddling with something temporary.

your addon is excellent, and this feature is very useful.

thank you.

Question Help please

I love your addon Capping its most likely my favorite addon of all time.

However since 5.4 every flag carrier map it doesn't display the health of either the horde or alliance even if im beside them and targeting them. I have reinstalled 5.4 deleted the old capping folder and reinstalled it shut off all other addons and i cant figure it out. i even opened up battgrounds.lua but i cant seem to make sense of it.

All it does all game every game is display who has the flag and ?? all the time for about 50 games since 5.4 with 2-3 re installs of capping and even a blizzard repair wow tool. You're Probably very busy person but if you can point me in the right direction ill forever be thankful.

change the if else block at 517 to:

if map and (teamsize == "BATTLEGROUND" or teamsize == "ARENA") then
map = format("%s", map)
end

getbattlefieldstatus no longer returns arena team sizes, only the string "ARENA"

The LUA error ...
I cannot figure this out. The errors are pointing at Blizzard's code that I do not touch.

@Grokthag - Maybe the final score string localization needs to be updated.

Capping has some issue while using French client. I get the node timers back with changing ["Arathi Basin"] = "Bassin d'Arathi", to ["Arathi Basin"] = "Bassin Arathi", on line 8 in localization-frFR but it still doesn't display final score estimation.
