Capping  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v6.0.001
by: totalpackage, funkydude

* 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.

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.

Please add AFK leecher autoreporting

Thanks for all your work on capping.

Please could you consider either adding cattleprod/cavedefendres functionality to capping or improve on/update the battleground afk autoreporting tools so that I don't have to keep manually reporting afk leeches.

Here're some links to maybe give some ideas/head start on functionality (new addon maybe?).

afk tracker - http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...fktracker.aspx

baud afk reporter - http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...-reporter.aspx

cave defenders - (can't find original source but it was on wowinterface)

This happens when you do not log out properly, like after a crash or power failure.
i dont think thats when it happens, otherwise all the other addons would have the same problem. there has to be something else that causes the offset.

and it even happens during the same session, when changing zones or so.

also when i do a reloadUI it sometimes changes the position of the map and the frames of the map (map/ towers, players, flag) get separated and when i move the map only the map moves and the other stuff stays where it is.

I've used this addon for quite awhile and love it, and only now do I appear to be having a problem. So just resubscribed recently after some months, loaded up the latest capping and despite my efforts the zone map absolutely refuses to narrow. I've deleted my wtf folder, only enabled capping, yet it never narrows. The option of narrowing it doesn't appear to do anything at all, whether it be on or off.

Is the problem on my end? What could it be? Thanks!

To those having problems with the minimap:

Since the minimap simply did not work at all for me (strange behavior in terms of positioning, not dragable, etc.) i tried to fix it myself.
Not knowing LUA at all, I just commented out all lines in the core.lua that seemed to have anything to do with the minimap part of the addon.

To my surprise (honestly) it actually worked.

Don't know if it will work for you, but if you want to give it a try, here's the code: http://www.nomorepasting.com/getpaste.php?pasteid=35020

Just open your core.lua and replace the existing text with that one.

PS: Not sure if it matters, but i had these settings before restarting my client and loading the "modified" Capping: http://yfrog.com/gvcappingp

Need AV Auto turn-ins back!!

Agreed, this was a big feature for me, and it's no longer working. I would LOVE to have it back, as I'm an AV junkie!!

BG Minimap Combat

Would really like to see players in combat as red on the battleground minimap.

This was done in the Battlefield Commander 2 addon which is now broken. It was extremely useful for making at-a-glance decisions.

I can use other mods for the chat barker stuff like "Our flag carrier is dying, please regrab" or "Enemy flag carrier is about to die, please cap", but the battleground minimap showing players in red who are in combat I have not been able to find in another addon.

Is there a reason the HP percent of the flag carrier doesnt show in EotS? Works just fine in WSG.

In EotS you can see who picked the flag up, targets just fine, etc. But a HP percent would be nice as well if you find the time, but with Cata releasing tommorrow, im sure most addons will stop adding features for a few days / weeks and definitely dont blame ya

Great addon btw, one of the few battleground addons still being maintained, even tho BGs are about to become pretty popular soon when the rated games are available.


EDIT: A second request would be to add a filter, to stop the "No Player Named Blahblahblah-Server is currently playing" spam that you get when entering battlegrounds, especially the 40 man BGs like AV.

i havent had the anchor moving issue since the last update so it seems that one is fixed
but could you bring back the left and right aligned options?

i also have to second Beachcomber1's request, it would be really useful, but i think i proposed that a long time ago and you said something like the colors are already there with cartographer or so but since cartographer seems dead maybe you could add that extra feature:O

there was also a other really useful feature in battlefield commander, an indicator on the selected target which made it really easy to find someone in a battleground when selecting them in the raid/party.

oh i found a addon that does both those things:O but i doubt they are compatible... http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=7960

Hi, is it possible to include the option to disable the timer for Wintergrasp from showing and still allow Tol Barad's timer to show?

Also, is there a way to have the world timers to grow down rather than up from where the anchor is?

Can you explain why for the bars you need "23,23" while it's supposed to respawn after 20seconds ? and for the warsong end timer its 61,5*3 for 3minutes ?

Also I have a problem "PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD" and "ZoneCheck" doesn't start everytime I enter a battleground, it start sometimes but not always, so I dunno what's wrong, can you look into it ?
