Tidy Threat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.8
by: danltiger [More]
Tidy Threat is a simple threat monitor which is simple enough for a novice to understand, yet powerful enough for a Tank.

Simple explanation:
While in combat, the status bar grows upward indicating how "hot" the enemy thinks you are. Causing damage or casting heals will raise that level.

If you reach the mark on the thermometer, the enemy will turn and start hitting YOU. As you continue to attack, the bar can continue to rise into the RED area, indicating the amount of threat that you would need to lose in order to shed the attention of the bad guy.

If you're DPSing: Don't go into the RED!
If you're tanking: Stay in the RED!

More Complex Explanation:
The status bar shows your threat compared to the next-highest threat for the rest of your group. If you are the top threat holder, it will also show how much your threat exceeds the next highest. In other words, if you are tanking and the bar extends above the line, into the red, you've got solid aggro.

No mode changes are required for Tank vs DPS usage; The interface is universal. For additional data, players can enable the Detail Window, which will display real threat numbers.

Type '/ttt' into the chat window to bring up the configuration panel, or right-click the Tidy Threat frame.

One problem down; That's a start!

If the threat bar doesn't show up, it could be a conflict with another addon. A simple way to test this out would be to disable all other addons, and run only Tidy Threat.

However, depending on the test conditions, you might not see anything, even with Tidy Threat working perfectly. If you're the only unit on the threat table, Tidy Threat won't appear. So, if you're testing things out while soloing, you'll want to use a hunter/warlock/DK with pet. If you don't have one of those classes, you'll want to enlist the aid of a friend.

If you still have problems after testing, it might be a good idea to delete the saved variables file for Tidy Threat. Look under your "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<ACCOUNT_NAME>\<REALM_NAME>\<CHARACTER_NAME>\SavedVariables" folder, and delete the "TidyThreat.lua" file.

Hope that helps!

Hi

Just tried the latest build and the error has gone

TidyThreat still does not show any threat though. The bar shows, but does not 'fill up' with colour to represent any threat.

Out of interest I selected 'show in combat' and it does not show when I engage a mob, so obviously does not know when I'm combat either.

Any ideas of what I could try and do to provide more details on why it has stopped working?

Could this be a conflict with another addon?

Hmm....

Try "/ttt reset", and then /reload (to reload your UI).

Hope that helps!

Ack! Not sure how I missed your original message, but I'm sorry.

I've got an update pending, so I'm hoping that fixes things for you.

Thank you for any help you can give


PS one of my guildies seems to have the same problem with a fresh install

Thanks for confirming. I'll update the download, soon :-)

The problem is when Blizzard's saved variables become corrupted. The code fix makes Tidy Threat handle the corruption much more gracefully.

I logged in today and got this exact same error in Dalaran. Froze up as I was trying to log in, I alt+F4'd it and reloaded to get the error. I read this before i deleted the WTF data for TT and so I tried the code fix. The fix did allow tidy threat to load, but it reset my position and put it in the middle of the screen. So I'm not sure how much of a "fix" it is, it just reset the position to the middle after the error. I've never had the error before so I'm hoping not to bump into it again, but I will try and remember to post if I have had any problems since the fix after a while.

(After reloading a few times it seems to be stable for the moment again)

Had to endtask the game and after wards tidythreat was broke. And resetting it woudlnt help nor would multiple restarts of the game. If it happens again ill try to remember this code fix and will apply it to see if it works.
