Dance Music
Version: 1.10
by: Robsato, ShetiPhian
Introduction
It's purpose is simple. When you do the /dance emote a song will start playing and the song will stop when you start moving again. The song that is played is determined by your character model.

For an idea on how it looks see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgK6GmG2OTU


Usage
You can enable/disable dancemusic in-game with the "/dancemusic on" and "/dancemusic off" commands.
"/dancemusic worgenmerge" Toggles if the worgen human form shares songs with humans [default: shared]
"/dancemusic druidmerge" Toggles if simular druid forms share songs [default: shared]
"/dancemusic showsong" Toggles the display of the expected MP3 [default: off]
"/dancemusic altdir" Uses the alternate music directory .../Interface/DanceMusic/
"/dancemusic defdir" Uses the default music directory .../Interface/Addons/DanceMusic/Music/

Adding Music
To add your songs you will have to place them in the "<warcraft>/Interface/Addons/DanceMusic/Music" folder. The songs should be in the MP3 format.

TIP #1: If you use an addon auto updater use "/Interface/DanceMusic" instead and run "/dancemusic altdir" once per server, to prevent deletion of songs.
TIP #2: Use "/dancemusic showsong" before dancing to display file name for current model.
TIP #3: For inspiration on songs to use you can browse around YouTube a bit for the WoW dance videos.
This is a good one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=066_q4DIeqk

NOTE: To avoid copyright issues DanceMusic is distributed without any songs

Changes
  • Updated TOC for 4.3
  • Included a list filenames that should be used for the MP3 files.

Talking Dance Music Mod!

I made a modded version of this addon where you can hear dance music when other players /dance near you as well! Feel free to give it a try. It's also the first WoW addon I've modded!

Many thanks to Robsato and ShetiPhian for this really awesome addon, it's one of my favorites for when the regular WoW music seems dull, and I hope my version adds a fresh touch of randomness to it! (Hey, nothing compares to having one of your raid members spontaneously start dancing right before a boss fight and randomly having the Attack on Titan theme play during the fight XD)

For the current models I think this only needs a toc bump, just need to do some more testing.


shyvanah:
I only know English, so I can't tell you in French, hopefully this helps

type
/dancemusic debug

then type
/dance

the chat log will show what directory and file the addon tried to load

it does not work

hello,

I installed a song in the directory dancemusic> music in the correct file name for my draenei and when I do / dance there is no music playing.

I am French and the translation of the instruction is not clear enough.

then either your addon bug or I need a good tutorial, help me please

ps: the least you have been to include the music dirrectement with the addon, not whether we have to add them.

I noticed a request on curse about changing the music directory because the auto updater deletes the songs.

Understandable request, but I didn't want to force everyone to move their songs so instead I added two new commands.

"/dancemusic altdir" & "/dancemusic defdir"

altdir will use the alternate directory /Interface/DanceMusic/
defdir will use the default directory /Interface/Addons/DanceMusic/Music/

The setting is remembered per server, and can be changed anytime ingame.

You could also use these new settings to switch between two sets of songs.

It has been waaay to long since I viewed the comments I see

I just updated the addon with just a TOC bump and I added Goblin and Worgen to the readme. They already worked when you used the corect filenames.

@ShetiPhian
I can add you as developer to this addon or I can take over your changes if you like.

I'm currently working on updating this addon.
Goblin was automatically supported due to the way it was coded.
I have gotten Worgen working and it plays a different song for each form.



EDIT:
Changes:
Noted that Goblins and Worgen are supported

Different songs for both of the Worgens forms.
GhostWolf, DruidBear, DruidCat & DruidOwlBeast play their own song
