SquawkAndAwe  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.3
by: Adoriele [More]
SquawkAndAwe is a buff watcher/proc timer for Balance Druids based off of ShockAndAwe, an addon for Enhancement Shamen by Levva (EU Khadgar).

SquawkAndAwe provides a timer for:
Trinket procs and Use:
Eclipse procs, with differences based on which proc occurs
Eclipse cooldown
Omen of Clarity
Omen of Doom
Elune's Wrath
Wrath of Elune (gg Blizzard set bonus names)
Moonfire (and a smaller bar for each tick)
Insect Swarm (and a smaller bar for each tick)
Faerie Fire
Entangling Roots
Hibernate
Cyclone
Starfall
Typhoon
Force of Nature
Innervate
Barkskin
the GCD

Options exist to turn on/off each bar separately, allow text on the bars showing name and duration, whether to flash the Proc bars, tick bars for DoTs, and SquawkAndAwe integrates with SharedMedia to allow textures and fonts.

Updates:
v1.6.3 - Fix for Patch 4.2 API changes.
v1.6.0 - Added support for Custom Bars. Instructions and examples are in CustomBars.txt. Fixed a bug that was preventing Languish ticks from showing. Added Disable/Enable commands, access using "/saa enable" or "/saa disbale". Added sounds for abilities coming off cooldown. Added ability to force SAA to grow upwards. Really, it just flips SAA over.

v1.5.1 - Added bars for Tier 9 and 10 idols and Languish. Added ability to control order of bars within a category. Use "order" option under each bar's settings page. Order is priority based, bars with a lower "order" setting will appear on top. To make SAA arrange the bars automatically, check the new checkbox in the Bars settings page. New trinket checkbox allows you to tell SAA that you only have one trinket. If checked, and SAA detects a second trinket, the second trinket's bar will collide with the first Proc bar. Added support for short trinket names - add a shortname field to a trinket's declaration array to shorten the trinket's displayed name (i.e. SAA.combat.trinkets.Phylactery.shortname = "Phylactery" will cause Phylactery of the Nameless Lich to show as simply "Phylactery").

v1.5.0 - 3.3.3 patch compatability fix. Added support for Omen of Doom procs and proc sounds. Proc sounds are enabled globally with a new checkbox in the Procs tab, procs can individaully select sounds with a new drop-down in each proc's tab. Fixed a couple other minor errors as well. Known issue: sometimes after changing bar options, some bars may become transparent (though still functional). Reloading the UI will fix this.
v1.4.1 - Fixes Eclipse ICD refresh issue, and adds dual-ICD functionality.
v1.4.0 - Workaround for missing Eclipse entries in combat log, courtesy of Copialinex.
v1.3.3 - Fixed bug causing debuffs not to spawn when switching targets. Fixed bug involving disabling a bar that's currently active.
v1.3.2 - Oops: Applied Debuff/CC change to Abilities as well, and to be safe did similar things to Procs and Trinkets as a double-check. Also fixed a bug that would not let you turn off the Eclipse bar.
v1.3.1 - Fixed bug: attempt to index field 'CC'/'Debuffs' (a nil value), bumped TOC back to 30100.
v1.3 - Huge overhaul of the internal workings, mostly transparent but they do allow much easier integration of new timer bars. To go along with this, now includes bars for trinkets, cc, and some abilities. Specifically added this version are the T8 4-piece proc and the PvP set proc, Roots, Hibernate, Cyclone, Starfall, Typhoon, Force of Nature, Innervate, and Barkskin, as well as most Epic non-PvP trinkets and a couple rare ones. CC bars will track both your target and your focus, FF bar will trigger off of and track either FF or FF(F) from anyone on your target, and the majority of the other new bars should have good explanations in their options seconds (mouseover the options). Lastly, all but the Proc bars can be merged by group, i.e. you can have all of your chosen CC timers show up on the same bar.

Also, I've done more to try and fix the missing debuff bar issue. If you previously had problems with IS/FF not showing up when you cast them, let me know if this fixes it.

v1.2.1 - Fixed Moonfire/Eclipse bar collision, changed FF bar to accept any FF.
v1.2 - 3.1 compatability
v1.1.1 - Fixed GCD bar to remove locale dependency (forgot this one), added ability to show number of times Starfire has extended your Moonfire DoT, a few structural changes to prepare for adding more bars in the future
v1.1 - Finally fixed Omen bar, removed dependency on Localization files for functionality, seem to have also fixed the latency issue on target debuffs
v1.0.5 - Fixed encoding issue with Russian locale, added German locale
v1.0.4 - Fixed bug with French localization, added Russian and Taiwanese
V1.0.3 - Fixed bug with OoC bar
V1.0.2 - Added French Localization, fixed test bar bug
V1.0.1 - Added text options and ability to toggle icons.

-- Update note --
Unless something gets broken by a patch, I won't be updating specifically to bump the TOC file to the newest version. For example, 3.0.8 did nothing to change the functionality of SAA, so v1.1.1 will still work. You just need to check the "Load Out-of-Date Addons" box on the addon screen to get it working again.

ToDo:
Ordering of bars within group if not merged
Figure out how to plug in other bars optionally, including generating options for them.

Known issues:
- Checking for GCD is done off of Teleport: Moonglade. Beta premades do not have this spell (by default, you might be able to complete the quest for it), so SAA won't work for them without hacking the Lua. Second, if your Arcane school gets locked out, the GCD bar will be inaccurate (since lockouts just force a cooldown on locked spells). I'm looking into checking for GCD off of feral abilities instead, since the physical school can't be locked.

On a related note, development is based out of EJ. While I'll be checking here periodically, the easiest way to get a bug to my attention is to make a post here: http://elitistjerks.com/f32/t35477-squawkandawe/.

I simply might be too silly, but is there a regular options menu, where I can activate/deactivae certain bars, deal with width and scaling, or do I really need to do it via command line?

Thank you
Hit Esc, then go to Interface --> Addons --> Squawk and Awe.

I just wanted to mention this since I can't seem to find others' comments on it...

I love this addon, but I've been having issues with its Faerie Fire timer lately. It'll just randomly fall off, even though there is no way my spell is being overwritten (I'm always the only boomkin in the raid). The timer just randomly disappears, and I'm forced to waste yet another GCD to cast it so I can make sure it's there. Very, very frustrating.

It doesn't always happen, but I had some very horrid luck with it last night in our 25-man; every single boss fight, it would "remove" the Faerie Fire timer at least once or twice per fight.

Any chance at this being looked at again anytime soon?

Wink Would be nice

I like this add-on seems to be working fine, but i dont know if anyone agrees with me in saying that in the heat of a boss fight things can get pretty frantic and just have one suggestion of maybe adding a sound interface that goes off when eclipse procs

Unhappy wow interface screen

can you help me please because i've done something really stupid. I just installed SAA and i was trying to move the frames to where i wanted them on screen. I was moving the wow interface window, the one where you get the addons tab and i let go at the wrong moment with the result that i slid the whole window off the screen. I know this is not a problem caused by SAA as such but just wondered if you had an suggestions for me? Maybe a console command to reset the window or something?

Any help gratefully received

Eclipse Icon bug

The latest version (1.1.1 r1) has a weird bug where the Eclipse icon never leaves the screen once it has been displayed.

I'm on the US version, and not running any other mods besides Chatter, Carbonite etc.

Feature req..

I switch spec's between balance and resto. Is there any chance you might add an optional cooldown indicator for swiftmend and natures swiftness?

Thanks

Hmm, it seems to be not a localization issue. I checked the locale for misspelled abilities again and found nothing.
OoC is now fixed in 1.1.

Bar's work, not text.
And Ooc bar not working too, not text, not bar.
The issue with the Starfire Cooldown bar text is a translation issue, I'll look at the locale file and see what I can find. Likely just a missed or misspelled key.

OoC is a known issue, hopefully I'll get some time to work on it before the weekend.

[edit]
Actually, I'm having a hard time tracking it down. Could you post a couple more screenshots, with at least one showing what's working for Wrath, and one showing what's not working for Starfire?
