Capping  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v6.2.01
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.

You are indeed correct. It seems to be "simpleMinimap" addon, but only when simpleMinimap has the "movers" option enabled. Anyway, working fine now.

Thanks for a great addon totalpackage!

When in any BG the battlefield map doesn't show up for me but all other bars are functioning normally. No errors are shown either. It was the only addon running at the time.

Any chance you could make the announce flag carrier bound to right click instead of control+left click?

WOW capping information

When I activate this add-on (and have disabled all others), the WOW information that's normally at the top for AV is now in the middle of the screen.

Is there a way for me to move this.

(side note, i notice this in other areas - nagrand, tek forest, hellfire - as well )

Make sure that you have Zone Map option set to "Show in Battlegrounds" or "Always Show" on the World Map. If not, you may have a conflicting addon.

You can either delete Capping's saved variables to use blizz's default location or use the "Reposition Scoreboard" option in the Capping menu to move it.

Nope, I'm making that consistent with clicking on the timer bars to announce.

Hi!

Thanks a lot to developers in their hard work!

I love this addon, but after update to 3.0.2 in Russian WoW Servers it's not working yet (even v3.0.005). After some inspection of source files I've found problem. Trouble is that the line for Russian language in Capping.toc file is missed. Here it's:

Source file Capping.toc:
...
locals\localization.lua
locals\localization-deDE.lua
locals\localization-frFR.lua
locals\localization-koKR.lua
locals\localization-zhTW.lua
locals\localization-zhCN.lua
...

and "must be" file:
...
locals\localization.lua
locals\localization-deDE.lua
locals\localization-frFR.lua
locals\localization-koKR.lua
locals\localization-ruRU.lua <<< missed line
locals\localization-zhTW.lua
locals\localization-zhCN.lua
...

Please add this line in future versions of Capping for Russian fans of WoW.

This sounds like I am a total nub, but where do I need to check for zone map?
Under capping or blizzards addon section?

Thank you

Capping

Thank you for your help totalpackage. Did find it in the map left corner.
I did get the battle map up before by shift, left clicking on bg queue logo.
I think with the old capping. The battle map you could scroll over players and right click on them for easy afkin. Is that possible with this version of capping? or is it a different addon that I had? All I remember is, I only had capping, removed Av bars, never liked it.

I don't seem to get the 'non-used areas' to hide, only the border, is the Narrow Map Mode supposed to hide other zones around the one I'm in or anything such?

Yep, Narrow Map hides the unused areas but only in battlegrounds.

Shadowsight timer

It would be nice if you could add shadowsight timer for arenas so, I would not need to get another mod just for that. Thanks and keep up the good work

Is there a way to make all of the bars (timers and queues/ports) all grow up/down from the same anchor instead of one up and the other down?

Added. I don't do Arenas, so I didn't fully test it. I'm going by the assumption that it spawns 90 secs after the battle began. Also, I need a minor localization update for other clients.

Disable wait/port timers. I'm not going to mix those timers with the others.
