TextTimers

Version: 4.2
by: Sagewind [More]

Because of bad quality of code (high CPU usage) i dont support this addon anymore. But have created optimized version of addon's features:
TextEnemyBuffsTimers
TextCCTimers




Description
Small addon that do big things TextTimers shows buffs and debuffs of your current targeted enemy and spell cooldowns of enemies around you. Addon doesn't have in-game settings and they can be edited only in LUA code. TextTimers does't use any libs. So he has very small size. Works with all classes, spells and client languages.

If you found any bugs or added any spells please write in comments.

Features

  • Show filtered debuffs of your selected enemy target: all debuffs of your class and only important of others.
  • Show filtered buffs of your selected enemy target.
  • Show filtered cooldowns of enemies spells. If you are on Arena then addon will track all enemies. Else - only current selected target.
  • Each timer shows spell icon and remaining time.
  • Each debuff bar have color depends on class.
  • Remaining seconds change color depends on time and timer type.
Read change log for details of current version.

FAQ
How to change positions, number of timers and thier direction?
Open TextTimers.lua with any editor and find next code lines (first from the top):
Code:
local DBF_WORK = true
local DBF_X = -490
...
local CD_DIR = -1
Description of variables:
  • DBF_WORK - controls working of debuff timers (true - turned on, false - turned off)
  • DBF_X - debuff timers position X
  • DBF_Y - debuff timers position Y
  • DBF_N - number of debuff timers
  • DBF_LEN - length of debuff timer bars
  • DBF_DIR - debuff timers grow direction (1 - up, -1 - down)
  • BF_WORK - controls working of buff timers (true - turned on, false - turned off)
  • BF_X - buff timers position X
  • BF_Y - buff timers position Y
  • BF_N - number of buff timers
  • BF_DIR - buff timers grow direction (1 - up, -1 - down)
  • CD_WORK - controls working of cooldown timers (true - turned on, false - turned off)
  • CD_X - cooldown timers position X
  • CD_Y - cooldown timers position Y
  • CD_N - number of cooldown timers
  • CD_DIR - cooldown timers grow direction (1 - up, -1 - down)
Edit values and save file. Restart game.

How to add/edit/delete tracked debuffs?
Open LUA with any editor and find next code lines:
Code:
DEBUFFS = 
{
	...
	["DRUID"] =
	{
		["GLOBAL"] =
		{
			5211,	-- Bash
			9005,	-- Pounce
			...
			16922	-- Starfire Stun
		},
		["LOCAL"] =
		{
			99,	-- Demoralizing Roar
			770,	-- Faerie Fire
			...
			8921	-- Moonfire
		}
	},
	...
}
Addon will track global and local debuffs from group with the same name as your current character class and only global debuffs from other groups. To add spell you need to know ID (use http://www.wowhead.com/, for example Faerie Fire has ID 770, so you will see in the browser address line "http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=770"). Not-player spells add to group "OTHER". Enough to add just one any rank of spell (by default first). From "--" begins comment to line, add comments to added spells. Don't edit group names for correct work. In the end save file and restart game.

How to add/edit/delete tracked buffs?
Open LUA with any editor and find next code lines:
Code:
BUFFS = 
{
	...
	["DRUID"] =
	{
		48707,	-- Anti-Magic Shell
		51271,	-- Unbreakable Armor
		...
		23920	-- Spell Reflection
	},
	...
}
Addon will track only spells from group with the same name as your current character class and "GENERAL". You need to write spell ID (same as adding debuffs). Use group "GENERAL" to add spells that must be tracked by all classes.

How to add/edit/delete tracked cooldowns?
Open LUA with any editor and find next code lines:
Code:
COOLDOWNS =
{
	...
	["DRUID"] =
	{
		[47476] = 120,	-- Strangulate
		[48707]	= 60,	-- Anti-Magic Shell
		...
		[23920] = 10	-- Spell Reflection
	},
	...
}
Addon will track only spells from group with the same name as your current character class and "GENERAL". You need to write spell ID (same as adding debuffs) and spell cooldown. Use format [ID] = Cooldown_in_sec. Use group "GENERAL" to add spells that must be tracked by all classes.

I want track only my debuffs!
Open LUA with any editor and replace code
Code:
local name, _, icon, _, _, dur, rem = UnitDebuff("target", di)
with
Code:
local name, _, icon, _, _, dur, rem, isMine = UnitDebuff("target", di)
and code
Code:
if ((gi == CurClass and li == "LOCAL") or li == "GLOBAL") and 
	GetSpellInfo(id) == name and ti <= DBF_N then
with
Code:
if ((gi == CurClass and li == "LOCAL") or li == "GLOBAL") and 
	GetSpellInfo(id) == name and ti <= DBF_N and isMine then

I wrote a much more simplistic version of this addon. I do intend to add Focus Target as well when I get a chance. Give it a go if you like.

Yeah, I see your point. I guess it's just a matter of personal habit (I used classtimers for a long time, so kind of got used to that type of behavior)
Though if there is an easy way to set up that kind of debuff sorting via some code changes could you point me how to do it. If not - don't bother
I appreciate your work on that addon, great job.

dynamic sorting debuff timers

Hello there, thanks for the great addon!

I have a question/feature request here:
I wonder if there is a way to dynamically sort debuff timers by expiration time, i.e. in current version of this addon if I cast Vampiric Touch (15 s) then Devouring Plague (24 s) ->
VT will appear on the first line, DP on second
but after VT expires and I recast it, it will appear on 1st position, although DP will expire sooner.

Excuse me for my poor explanation, but i hope you get what i mean. This feature would make this addon even better than it is already!

I didnt test on arena well, but on BG/world works perfect now. If something works not same way as i wrote plz comment.
That's strange, cause everytime im in a bg, and if i encounter a rouge (for example), he often uses either Evasion or CoS and when he goes down, the timer doesn't disappear until im dead or the cd is over. Same with world pvp. Dunno about arena, haven't played much, but i'd guess the same here.

I did follow it and it only gives me a update error...

You can add it easy. Read FAQ. I will not make new release because of only adding spells.

AMAZING

I'm loving this addong.....I've been able to get rid of several larger addons with this simple and filled out one.


I see that you added Enemy cooldowns .....any chance of monitoring having it monitor the players(my own) cooldowns? I.E. trinkets.....and on priests....Inner Focus, Devouring Plague, Mind Blast...etc etc.

i know that it does nothing. but they are called for no reason then. only couple of checks.

dont take me wrong, i dont want to insist, its up to you. i really love this addon and will use it as it is. i am just too much into clean code as possible (;
Done. Read FAQ
