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:


There is a forum thread for discussion on Skada.
Suggestions and bug reports here. Bug reports in comments will be deleted. There is a page with API information here.

"Skada" is Swedish for "Damage".

so something is messed up with skada. just did saurfang, guild said i did 16k dps, they had recount, 3rd in guild, but skada said i did 13.5k, 10th in guild. skada also didnt have anybody over 16k for me, yet my 16k was 3rd on recount

i know its skada, because half the time ill see magam totem, or fire ele on the meters, which it shouldnt be, should be counted towards my numbers.

i love skada because its so lightweight and the switching of threat during combat. just hope this gets fixed and are closer to recounts numbers too
Recounts numbers are incorrect (seems to pads numbers, especially the numbers of the person running it). Skada matches logs closely. Check the logs and Skada for accurate numbers.
I used to have this argument with my guildmates until they checked the logs my raid leader posts on World of Logs and WoWMeterOnline. Now most run Skada.

Protected Action

When trying to swap out glyphs on my druid I receive an error saying an action Skada was trying to perform was blocked by the default UI. I can confirm it is Skada throwing this error because it does not occur with the addon disabled and it does occur when only Skada is enabled. Again, this occurs:

On my Druid (any spec)
When trying to replace one glyph with another glyph (occurs when the message for using the reagent would appear). The error is thrown for any (and all) glyphs.

Edit: this also occurs on my paladin.

Minor thing, but could you please use the GameTooltip_SetDefaultAnchor() function when setting the "default" tooltip anchor?

"Skada\Skada.lua" @ line 2141

Thanks for the great addon

Skada has profiles. By default it uses a single profile. Switch profile in the addon's configuration.

I have not seen this problem with window position. Try deleting the addon's settings and see if it remains.

When will we see actual absorb numbers take the place of guessed absorbs now that it's trackable?

I am having a small problem with skada. When I click on the little wheel thing, I cannot select a different segment..IE: Current fight or Total.

Those options are blacked out and it is defaulted to Total. I would like to toggle to current fight.

I already reset with the menu and started a new segment and still having this issue.

* Manually hiding windows (by clicking minimap button/LDB) should now hide the windows until clicked again.
This doesn't seem to be the case with me. I'd bet that the various "hide when" options are interfering.

My desire is to:
- hide in combat
- display outside of combat
- If I click the LDB display, hide it and keep it hidden even after having exited combat.

Would it be possible to add a "Total" bar in every section? So you can see, like for example the total raid dps/ total raid damage when in the damage section.
