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.

What unit frames are you using?
When you go into the options menu and do "Unlock Frames", do you see the icons? If not, you probably don't have the mod installed right.

gotta say i LOVE ur addon i woulden manage without it ^^

but when i installd the latest version i had problems with understandin what all these thingys where about :S cuz nothing says wich "CC window" is for what,
nor who it is for etc, had prolly gonna have to spend 1,5 hour with dueling a mage and draggin guldies to gurbashi arena to actually be able to set it up (see what every "CC window" actually does)

i dunno if im just retarded but, try to make it abit easier ;P

once again thnx for a awesome addon keep it up

Edit: alright i think i workd it out :P is it possible that u can change so i can adjust where it works? like i wanna turn it off party CC in BGs and world pvp, and i cba writein "/lc disable party1, /lc disable party2" etc and then enable em when i wanna have em :P

I'd like to make a feature request to add new debuffs which place a root/stun/etc. on a target. There are a lot of these that come in with raid fights (i.e. Ferocious Butt on Icehowl) that aren't necessary for the base add-on, but which would be quite helpful to be able to enable in an ad-hoc manner. Entering them via an ID would be just great.




Oh, and on a side note to other posters, if you want to make a feature request, or perhaps even just be understood, please do try to use proper English. Using doodspeek and textese is a sure fire way to get yourself put on /ignore. As a software developer myself, I can say with absolute certainty that if a person cannot find the time to make themselves understandable, I will not take the time to decipher whatever message they're trying to convey.

There is already a category of debuffs for PvE. If you want to add one, you can look up the spell ID on www.wowhead.com by searching for the spell name, then open up LoseControl.lua and add it to the spell list. I'm not really a big raider, so I don't know which abilities would be useful to add. It's nice when other people make suggestions (I will add Ferocious Butt in the next version).

I couldn't agree with you more, although try to be considerate when English is not someone's primary language.

first, is there any way to make the anchors not show for categories that are disabled?
it's not a huge deal, but having 12 or so icons appear every time i press unlock (all i use it for is player) is a but unnerving!


second, can you revert the immunity change? i find it quite useful to keep track of my bladestorm / mind control duration

Yeah that makes sense and is easy to do.

I'll have to make it an option. For now, you can edit line 413 of LoseControl.lua and remove
Code:
and unitId ~= "player"

That's not really something I would use myself, but what you can do is make a macro with the following:
/lc disable party1
/lc disable party2
/lc disable party3
/lc disable party4

And another macro:
/lc enable party1
/lc enable party2
/lc enable party3
/lc enable party4

I hope that helps.

Do you think it's possible to add an option to automatically disable these units inside Battlegrounds?

I actually work with a goodly number of ESL speakers. My experience has been that people that have to learn English as a second (or third or fourth, even) language have far superior grammar and sensitivity towards proper structure than do many American teenagers raised on texting and doodspeak.

Anyway, thanks for the reply and the assistance in adding new debuffs to the LUA.

Right, Just downloaded this addon, but for the life of me it just wont work the way i want (Have the icon overlay the portrait of Party members and Focus target) All it does is do the Background overlay, I tried setting the strata to Overlay, High, and Medium, no difference. I am however using oUF unitframes (oUF_RuptureTourney to be specific) Any suggestions?, also tried setting all strata's in the rupture layout file to medium :\

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.
