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.

LoseControl only shows one icon, and that is for the debuff with the longest remaining duration, so I'm not sure how you would get multiple icons on the screen. Try resetting LoseControl to the default settings and see if that helps.

Great mod. Not sure if this is still being developed (hope it is!).

I'm wondering if there's a way to prioritize what the center player icon displays. Sometimes, you'll get overlapping CC on yourself and rather than showing one of the icons, LC will display all of them making it rather impossible to actually identify what's on you with LC.

Also, there seems to be a rare bug where the center player icon will end up not fading. No LUA error occurs when this happens. I'm not sure what causes it. I just end up with a stuck LC icon in the center of the screen until I reload UI.

Yes I will update it for 4.0.1, I just need to parse through all the class changes and make sure all the spell ids are right. Hopefully it won't take that long. I never got around to testing it on the PTR so I don't know how much of it will be broken.

When you update it for the ptr, do you think you can lets us configure the frame strata etc? This way, we could make it overlay existing unit frames

The frame strata option never really worked the way it was supposed to. If I have time then I would like to fix it up. Right now though, I just need to concentrate on getting the mod working again.

an options for buffs?

I wonder if you could make an option to watch important buffs instead of debuffs? such as ice block, bubble, etc.

like this is how I want my UI:
Lc Debuffs..player...target...Lc buffs
............[][_____] [______][]

the normal LC lets me watch debuffs on me, but I can't find an addon to watch buffs, besides power auras, which I have been using, but when I move my frames it's a PAAAIN to move all the power auras.

Re: an options for buffs?

LC does this already, but right now it's only got a few of the major CC immunity spells in there and they share the icon space with the debuffs. I'll include more spells for the 4.0.1 update and in the future I want to have a checkbox next to each one in the options so you can select which ones you want to see.
