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/.

If you don't merge all the abilities bars, what does is show for like typhoon? the cooldown? is barkskin the CD or when its up, what about invv, and force of nature?
thanks in advance

When trinket bars are merged, you have the choice of which to display. When debuff bars are merged, it will show duration, rather than ticks. When Ability bars (Innervate, Barkskin, the ones you're asking about) are merged, it will show cooldown instead of duration.

Mine is behaving similarly. I don't actually turn the addon off, so it slows my FPS from around 80 to about 30 frames per second for maybe 10 seconds. Also during this time the cooldown bars lose their text and go static. The bars still appear and disappear as if everything is working normally; but still, no text.

I have a slew of other addons, so there might be some conflict since 3.2 came out, but I try to keep them all updated. It's not a deal-breaker for me since it happens seldom and doesn't last long, I just wanted you to be aware of the problem.
My guess is that it's a conflict somewhere. As I mentioned in my other reply, it survived the transition just fine for me, and I assume by the fact that these are the only two reports I've gotten about it, that the issue is fairly isolated. If you can get me a copy of the exact error text, I can see what I can do. Note that "Your addons are causing too many errors" is not the text I'm looking for.

I am really glad I learned about the Squawk and Awe addon thanks for the work on it. I am currently using version 1.3.3 and with the latest patch and the change to eclipse so that the lunar and solar procs are on different cooldown timers I was wondering if/when the next version will be able to follow these a bit better. I am able to use it with some success since the proc overrides the cooldown showing but it would be nice to be able to track which cooldown is nearly up.

If there is already a way to do this (perhaps removing the merging of the eclipse cooldowns) I haven't yet figured it out and so any tips would be helpful

Thanks

Hello World

It seems like you forgot to remove the hello world code you started with: on login it spams my chatlog with the fact that it loaded. This is unnecessary and undesirable.

Otherwise a great mod.

A minor bug with this addon is that if I open up my spellbook while I have the addon turned on it causes the secondary blizzard action bars to always show even if the option is turned off in interface options. Nothing serious, but it does get a bit annoying to /reloadui every time I check something in my spellbook.

Lately, I've been getting constant errors when a trinket procs/is procced
Code:
[20:19:15] Interface\AddOns\SquawkAndAwe\SquawkAndAwe.lua:2451: attempt to concatenate field 'itemname' (a nil value)
[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\SquawkAndAwe\SquawkAndAwe.lua:2451: in function `OnUpdate'
Interface\AddOns\SquawkAndAwe\SquawkAndAwe.lua:1747: in function <Interface\AddOns\SquawkAndAwe\SquawkAndAwe.lua:1745>
And as of 3.2.2, the timer bars seem to work only when I don't have Moonfire applied to target. Can't confirm this at the moment but it sure is annoying when half of the time the bars are simply frozen and changing colour/text according to which eclipse I'm on, if even that sometimes.

Re: Re: question

These errors appear to be triggered when one of the timer bars is still active as I switch to my other spec. I was able to stop the errors by going back to boomkin and waiting for the timers to run out before switching.

Hopefully this helps isolate the problem.

I'm wondering this also,or at least text on the cooldown bar like "Eclipse Cooldown (Lunar)". Sometimes my horrible short term memory gets the better of me.

An update to clean this up and maybe add an option for nature's grace would be nice. I use an error gatherer so i dont see them pop up on my screen when they happen but I notice everytime I log in I can scroll up my chat window and see a whole string of errors from S&A.
