LifeTapper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.99c
by: temu92 [More]
Do you find yourself always forgetting to use Life Tap to be able to maintain Glyph of Life Tap buff? Not any longer as LifeTapper is here! It warns you when your buff is fading out or is not active at all.

LifeTapper can use Blizzard Combat Text, SCT, MikSBT or Parrot as optional output for warning. Though none of them is not required, it makes warning easier to detect. LifeTapper has automatical detection for every supported combat text addon. If none of them is enabled, chat output will be automatically toggled on.

Addon warns only when you're unmounted and in combat!

P.S. Before you say addon doesn't show combat text addons in /lt battletext which are claimed to be supported, please note it only shows addons which you have enabled!

Commands
You may use /lt or /lifetapper to view usage instructions ingame. Following commands exist:
/lt toggle - Toggles whether addon is enabled
/lt chat - Toggles chat output for warnings
/lt sound - Toggles sound effect (default: on)
/lt raid - Toggles whether addon is only enabled when in raid (default: off)
/lt trivial - Toggles whether addon is only enabled when target is not trivial (grey level) (default: on)

/lt battletext - Shows usage for combat text addon changing
/lt battletext none - Disables combat text addon output
/lt battletext blizzard - Enables World of Warcraft's default combat text output. Active only when combat text is enabled in Interface menu
/lt battletext sct - Enables optional SCT output
/lt battletext msbt - Enables optional MikSBT output
/lt battletext parrot - Enables optional Parrot output

Changes

Version 0.99b
  • Fixed buffchecking bug.

Version 0.99
  • Added support for 3.2's increased buff duration.
  • Polished buff checking, now it should be truly localization independant.

Version 0.98
  • Now buffchecking is localization independent!
  • Added support for Blizzard Floating Combat Text and Parrot!
  • Fixed bug which caused addon to disable itself when entering instance
  • Improved trivial mode checking
  • Automatical detection for every supported combat text addon. If none of them is enabled, chat output will be automatically toggled on

Version 0.95
  • Sound effect for alert!
  • Added support for MikSBT addon
  • Raid-only mode
  • Ignoring trivial (grey level) targets mode
  • Automatical detection when dual spec is changed (it may not work yet, haven't been tested)
  • Fixed a few bugs including alert coming up when in vehicle

TODO
Most likely won't come in next update
  • Make this Ace'd some day
  • Add possibility for localizations
  • Make plugin for DataBroker

Have fun!

I am also unable to get this to work. I'm using the most recent edition, and while I can change the settings, I can't seem to get it to output into the chat window or SCT. Is there something specific I need to make sure I have enabled in SCT for it to work?

It works fine for me. Tell what exactly does not happen? Note the warning is only shown when you are in combat and off mount. Try also updating your version to the newest if you aren't completely sure of which you have.

thank you )

just 1 question: is it possible to change the buff check routine to use spell-id (buff-id), not the name?
i've tried to change the lua file and to write the buff name in my language and it worked, but it is a quick fix
(marked red in the code)

Code:
.................
function LifeTapper_CheckBuff()
	-- Let's check if Life Tap buff is present and if it's, fetch its duration
	if (LifeTapON == 0 or LTMute == 1) then return; end
	
	local inCombat	= UnitAffectingCombat("player");
	local inRaid	= UnitInRaid("player");
	
	if (LTRaid == 1 and inRaid == nil) then return;	end
	if (LTGrey == 1 and LTTargetTrivial == 1) then return; end
	
	local found	= 0;
	for i = 1,40 do
		local n, _, icon, _, _, dur, x, _, _ = UnitBuff("player", i);
		if (n == "Life Tap") then
...............
and another issue.
the glyph check function sometimes does not detect the glyph after entering the raid instance (from graveyard after a wipe).
but if i do talent switch - it does. so i switch talents to secondary spec and back to primary almost every wipe.
I'll do it.

I don't even have idea how much there is these combat bar mods. I'll take look at that too

Yeah I tried it with MSBT and it definitely does not work yet. I appreciate you looking into adding support for it. If I were you I would consider it a priority as MSBT is quickly replacing SCT in popularity.
