Skada Damage Meter  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.5-7
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".

1.5-7:
Added themes.
Fixed up tooltip positioning.
Added spell details for the Total healing mode.

1.5-6:
Reverted the change to the Total segment. Fingers, you failed me!
Bit of configuration cleanup.
Fixed reverse growth and right to left orientation.

1.5-4:
Added a simply optional frame for the Data text display.
Cleaned up configuration a bit.
Changed the Total segment to not be saved, but recalculated at startup. This fixes an early design flaw (Total was never the sum of all segments, but a separate thing). Fingers crossed there's no breakage...
Greater Blessing of Might and Stormlash is now handled.

1.5-3:
Fixed tooltip not hiding.

1.5-2:
Fix for recent changes.

1.5-1:
Added new Inline display system.
Added new Broker display system.
Fixed Bar display's border settings.
Added Strata option for Bar and Inline displays.
Fixed an issue with debuff uptimes mode giving an error when showing a specific player during a new segment.

1.4-35:
Fix for Soul Effigy.
New "Always show self" option.
Various Legion fixes.

1.4-34:
Updated for Legion

I've noticed that Skada displays onto of the Blizzard frames (more specifically, where I have it located, when I open the character frame, Skada is on top). Any chance to change the level of Skada? EDIT. I just realized that this doesn't always seem to happen. But I have had it happen occasionally.

Another thing, when looking at damage done by spell breakdown for an individual person, the bars displayed under each spell seem to all be very short. Any way to increase their relative length so that they're not all squished to one side?

Also, it seems that to completely reset Skada, I have to type /skada reset about 3 or 4 times.

I ran Utgarde Keep (heroic if it makes a difference) and none of the bosses showed up under fights. I have Skada selected to only save boss fights. It saves raid bosses though.

Hi, have you ever thought of adding the whisper target function to Skada for reports? I noticed you have a Self report which is kind of pointless to me since you can just look at the meter, but you're missing a whisper function. I personally don't like to spam raids or party or guild chat and just whisper the person who requests meter information. I love your addon but it's missing this function which I loved from recount. Thanks and keep up the good work ^^.

The /skada report -name- command does support this; the menu will have this feature soon.

LDB issues

The LDB seems to display a different dps than the DPS mode. Don't see why that would be the case. On my DK there was a 400dps discrepancy.

Also, having the title Skada, visible 99% of the time is pretty pointless. Whenever i exit combat, the LDB reverts back to the title, rather than just continuing to show the last clocked DPS, or whatever mode was selected, which seems more useful.

Regards,

Indeed, that would be much better.

In 1.0-11, the LDB display does not reset the text when combat ends.

As for the difference in DPS, I have not been able to reproduce it yet. I'll keep an eye out for it.

Some Assessment-like Features

Assessment is the only damage meter I've liked and Skada comes really close but just like Assessment, I'd like to suggest a little more tinkering around with text like hiding the D/HPS and % for the damage/healing windows(it feels like Skada takes up 1/4 of my screen since I need to make the frame really wide to see names and data). Also maybe an option to adjust the transparency of the title window.

Thanks!

I was a huge assessment lover back in the day, and i have to quote what Kristie said, Skada is the proud follower of assessment, the only thing missing is more customisation of the numbers, like hide the percentage and/or the dps in the damage window for example.

On the cosmetic side now, have the option to keep the bars all with the same color but class color the names., all this was possible with assessment with the use of tags.

Would that also be possible to report by right clicking on the window itself, i personally don't use any broker addon and hide every single button of my minimap.

Lastly, an option to completely hide the title bar.

You can shift-click the header and the menu will appear. Not obvious, I know.

Ahh clever, but meh, wtb complete hide of the header, i'll post a screenshot, easier to show why it's getting in the way



There we go, as you can "barely" see, teh header is out of the square background (kgpanels), see how omen is on the right side of the screen.

Edit1: got this when trying to delete a segment.

Code:
Interface\AddOns\Skada\Skada.lua:441: bad argument #1 to 'wipe' (table expected, got nil)
Edit2: One more, probaly last aswell, resquest: Hide when not collecting datas

I still have some strange stuff with mouse scrolling. Using a window that restricts to 8 bars visible, this current version of Skada 1.0.11.

Last raid I ran Skada and checked to save all boss encounters (a bunch). In the LDB menu I can see the first boss Patchwerk (i.e. at bottom of the list). But if I use mouse to scroll I cannot get the last Bar for the entry (Patchwerk) to show.

Another thing. If I right click a bar it goes back 1 step, but if I right click in the window it goes back to the data display list instead of back 1 step.

Also I noticed Skada does not register Misses. In the detail window it only shows Crit/Hit/Glancing but never misses.

As for suggestions, one thing I would like it to register is some sort of Min/Avg/Max info for each ability. I realize it would require more cpu and memory usage. As for displaying it, I dunno if it would be great to add another layer. Because with all tree type of display, the deeper you go the more cumbersome navigation becomes. Maybe there is room to add it in the existing detail view, as the number of bars and text in those are always few and short.

I would like an option to turn off the spark effect on the bars.

Noticed 3 issues:

Since you added the toggle for the title bar, once you use it, the bars move off the window, at the top, basically they move up and go where the title bar was.

The solo detection doesn't seems to work too well. If i login not being in a group with the option enabled, Skada still shows up, to make it disappear i have to join and then leave a group.

Oh and the damage summary shortening works kinda the wrong way.
It shows:
1. PlayerX 13.2k (1876.6, 100%)

Instead of something like:
1. PlayerX 13.200 (100%)

If it's the damage windows, the dps doesn't have to be seen, there's a dps window for that. Look at the dps, only the dps is shown which is just fine.
So for the damage, only the damage should be shown (and not shortened) and eventually the percentage.

Is there any chance you could implement a new section for miss/avoidance?
like (specials missed/white hits missed) working for both total and current data

and same with dodge, parry, block, miss etc

Right. I tuned Skada to show max of 6 bars, and i cannot navigate to DPS mode by scrolling, cannot see it. However, i can choose it form menu.

And if im choosing DPS from menu, it seems to switch to current combat mode, and i'd like overall total DPS, is it possible?

Since you added the toggle for the title bar, once you use it, the bars move off the window, at the top, basically they move up and go where the title bar was.

The solo detection doesn't seems to work too well. If i login not being in a group with the option enabled, Skada still shows up, to make it disappear i have to join and then leave a group.

Oh and the damage summary shortening works kinda the wrong way.
It shows:
1. PlayerX 13.2k (1876.6, 100%)

Instead of something like:
1. PlayerX 13.200 (100%)

If it's the damage windows, the dps doesn't have to be seen, there's a dps window for that. Look at the dps, only the dps is shown which is just fine.
So for the damage, only the damage should be shown (and not shortened) and eventually the percentage.
No, it's fine as it is. Having to change window mode just to check dps of players in the raid is just too cumbersome. About the damage formatting, i guess a change could be made, but do not leave out the DPS.
