Skada Damage Meter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.5-14
by: zarnivoop, funkydude, oscarucb

Skada is a modular damage meter with various viewing modes, segmented fights and customizable windows. It aims to be highly efficient with memory and CPU.

Usage

When you first start using Skada, there will be a window created by default. This window can be extensively customized in Skada's configuration panel; click the little cog icon to access a menu, and then click Configure. Depending on your user interface, there may also be a minimap button allowing quick access to this menu.

Skada supports multiple windows. To create a new window, click Windows in the addon's configuration panel. There are three built-in types of windows - Bar, Inline, and Data text. Bar is the classic damage meter window, and is very customizable. Inline shows the meter in a horizontal line, which can be useful for integration in custom user interfaces. Data text shows just one item at a time, and can also be displayed by any LDB display addon, such as Titan Panel, ChocolateBar, or ElvUI.

In the normal Bar window, you can left click on specific items for more detailed information, and right click for less details. At the very "top" is the list of all saved fight segments. Some data modes have several detailed information views. In this case you choose alternate views by holding certain keys pressed while clicking. For example, in Damage mode, you can Shift-click a player to see what enemies the player caused damage to. Tooltips will display how to reach the different views.

You can also use window buttons for selecting fight segment and mode directly.

Scrolling in Skada is done with the mousewheel.

Plugins

Skada is very easy to extend, and there are many extra plugin addons out there that add functionality, such as:

I'm having a weird problem with the font outline.
When Skada first runs its numbers the fonts don't have an outline, but once the fight ends any new fights after that has outlines.

As long as Skada has ran once the fonts have outlines but if i re-log or reload UI
the first run of Skada the outlines on the fonts don't appear until the fight has ended.

Is there a solution for this?
Thanks

A pet-peeve of mine too... Library devs should prefix functions with the version to prevent problems with different versions (in scripting languages).

it was SKADA (for 4.1)

after I disabled skada, then it was just fine. Got good frame


anyway... I prefer SKADA to recount!

plz patch up this great one!

Hey, loving Skada so much as a raid leader!

Question about a recent problem I ran into:

Last week I wowerrored for some reason, and when I came back into WoW all of Skada's settings had been wiped. I set it up again just the way I had it before, except one key feature is now missing.

When I mouseover any of the bars in the Absorbs & Healing category, the tooltip ONLY shows absorbs, and if a healer didn't do any absorbs (for example, a resto druid) the tooltip only says "Click for absorb details", which there are none. Before I wowerrored, it would show both the absorbs & healing in the tooltip. Now I have to switch back and forth from "Absorbs & Healing" to "Healing" in order to get the information I need.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Does anyone know how to make skada show "total" instead of "current fight" by default. I hate having to change it every time I enter a new instance. Thanks.

4.2 PTR

How to get Skada to work on the PTR:

Find:
Code:
function Skada:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(event, timestamp, eventtype,  hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, ...)
Replace with:
Code:
function  Skada:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(event, timestamp, eventtype,  hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName,  dstFlags, dstFlags2, ...)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: skada for 4.1 has trouble

Update: The problem in my case seems to be in the all in one folder version of the program. I downloaded and re-installed that with the same results I was having before... insta-fps drop anywhere near combat (though it seemed to work fine in 5 man instances, just not in BGs and raids). On a whim I downloaded and installed the "regular" version of the program and it seems to work fine. I haven't had the opportunity to try a raid with it yet, but it was performing normally in BGs. I will try and grab a BH sometime this weekend and update further.

100% sure. I wish I had more to give you in the way of troubleshooting information. It obviously works for some people (maybe even most), as I was in an instance just yesterday with someone running it. I will re-download it, and re-install and see what happens. If there is any information you require for troubleshooting in the meantime post it here and I'll do what I can to track it down for you. I hate the idea of having to run 2 or more add-ons to get the same functionality >.<

I did all the usual TS stuff, delete cache, wtf, interface and started over from scratch, queueing BGs and adding 1 add-on at a time. When I reinstalled skada... BOOM. I disabled it, tried again and things went just fine. I'm not sure what the problem is (it doesn't give any kind of error message so I can't help you there) but it's very distressing.

I have not noticed this myself at all, so I seriously doubt that Skada is the reason. Make sure you disable all other addons (and I mean all), and then see if the problem remains. If so, then it is Skada.
And yet.... it is. I have the same problem except any combat at all (I don't even have to be involved) makes me go 0 fps and the game white screens. I did all the usual TS stuff, delete cache, wtf, interface and started over from scratch, queueing BGs and adding 1 add-on at a time. When I reinstalled skada... BOOM. I disabled it, tried again and things went just fine. I'm not sure what the problem is (it doesn't give any kind of error message so I can't help you there) but it's very distressing.
