LoseControl  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.41
by: Kouri [More]
LoseControl makes it easy to see the duration of crowd control spells by displaying them in a dedicated icon onscreen.

Features:
* Displays duration of all CC spells and abilities on your player, pet, target, focus, party, and arena enemy frames.
* Automatically displays the most important buffs/debuffs first.
* Integrates directly with Blizzard unit frames.
* Icons can be moved, resized, and made transparent.
* Compatible with OmniCC.

New in 5.41:
* Added Turn Evil (Evil is a Point of View) [Paladin]

New in 5.4:
* Fixed Entrapment [Hunter]
* Added Bloodbath [Warrior]
* Changed Warbringer to root instead of CC [Warrior]

Known issues:
* Unlocking frames does not show arena enemy frames if they are anchored to Blizzard frames (because they don't exist unless you're in an arena).

To Do:
* Options profiles.
* Button skinning.
* Improve OmniCC support to work with all strata levels.
* Blizzard raid frames support.
* Pitbull support.
* SUF support.
* Italian support.

Here are some demonstration videos:

To notice things easier I moved tracking icons closer to the center and made them bigger. Several constantly appearing and disappearing big icons in bgs feel spammy. I don't really need to carefully track the situation around my groupmates there.

I want to make a macro to turn tracking on and off by 1 mouse press. So when I play arena I quickly turn it on and when I enter BG off.
Hmm, right now there is no way to do this, but it would be pretty easy to code. I will see about adding some command line options to the next version, no guarantee though.

Hopefully that will work better for you. Another feature that will be included is arena frames support (finally).
Well that's perfect, now I can't wait for the new version

Keep up the good work !

I guess it is when you set the FrameStrata to LOW line 436 ? Indeed, when I check "Unlock", the frame are behind Xperl, and you set the FrameStrata to medium for "easier drag" (line 498).
I can fix it myself just for me, but I wanna know if there is a particular reason that you set the strata to low ?

Thanks for your help !

Hey Kaitain, thanks for the feedback. I don't have a good solution right now for integration with non-Blizzard unit frames, but what you can do, is go into the LoseControl options and unlock all the frames. Then take your mouse and drag each of the party icons out a little bit, roughly to where your Stuf party frames are. Then re-lock the frames. This will detach the icons from the Blizzard frames, so that even if the party frames are hidden (which Stuf probably does), the LoseControl icons should still show up. Please let me know if that works for you.

No, there isn't, sorry. I recommend you turn off tracking for snares so you won't have to look at crippling poison all the time. There are more sophisticated mods out there like ClassTimer if you need to track multiple debuffs. LoseControl is designed to be simple with no configuration needed.

I did what you said and it worked.

I loaded the UI with Stuf Unit Frames disabled. Can then see all LC frames. Unlocked them and moved them away from the default location. Locked it up, logged out. Logged in with Stuf enabled, all LC frames still visible.

Thanks v much for the help. I can now see CC on my arena partner with a huge icon. VERY useful (saves a LOT of talking on vent).

Truly great addon. The simple ideas are always the best :-D
