Reliant Tanking Monitor
Version: 0.4.39 Stable Beta
by: Haturod [More]
About
Reliant Tanking Monitor(ReliantTM) is a tool for tanking. It will generate a debuff list of DeBuff Timer Bars with text including name, duration and stack info. Example of the text of the timer bars:
Demoralizing Shout [20 seconds]
>3< Sunder amor [18 seconds]
Essence of Eck [ 33 minutes]
It will also feature 2 extra focus frames which you can set to monitor your 2 offtanks. It will generate a debuff list for those targets.

You can also set an message which you can send to that tank. The message will be send as an whisper unless the target of the message also has ReliantTM. Then it will display that message like a raid warning similiar to the ones your get in mods like Deadly Boss Mods.

You can always check the changelog for up and comming changes!


How to use:
Type /Rel for the options menu. In there you can hide, size orient the bars as you please. Libshared bar textures and sounds supported.

Reliant has 3 bars. OT1, OT2 and the Player Anchor (which will feature some more functionality in the future). You can lock unlock, set a target and send message with the 3 buttons on top(or below) of those bars. to move the bar, hold the right mouse button down and drag the bar while it is unlocked. You can only set a target if the bar is unlocked by clicking on the middle button. Lefft and right clicking on the left button will send messages you set in the options.

The player anchor is still pretty dead, but that'll change soon

Also available on Curse.

Feel free to play around and let me know if somthing is wrong or you have an idea of what can be added.

Thanks to:
Rustig, Ginga, Lom, Pain and others from the Aspiration guild on Kilrogg and others for testing!

ok, it is saving variables to the base savedvariables folder, including the ones of interest to me, the warnings state.

It appears that you are using double varialbes for this, both the warnings = false and disablewarnings = true type of variables. Dunno why, but whatever.

For some reason, when the debuffs module loads, it wipes the variables and resets them all to defaults instead of loading the variables from saved.

Can anyone else verify what I am seeing here?

Wouldn't it make sense to instead check for saved variables and if none exist wipe (initialize) and reset to defaults?

It looks as though you may have abandoned this addon. I will be taking a stab at making the variables save between sessions (turning off warning messages, etc). Might also have the bars hide out of combat...

So.. working on it
Ok, just an update, I'm currently in process of rewriting the timer bars. Basically, I'm not gonna use a Lib for it, I'm writing my own this time around which offers me more flexibility

Middle click doesnt work. tried with both locked and unlocked bars.
Unlock the bar by clicking on the unlock button above the OT Frame. Then, Left Mouse Click on the middle button above the OT bar to target

I'm actually working on a filter, although I might end up rewriting the timer bars for that. I also want it to show tooltips when you mouse over the timer.

So, have patience

But it's a great addon and I already told other tanks in guild about it
I know! I'm kinda that lazy to next patch, deal?
Key Binds... never done those yet, but that's a nice idea, one I will work on tonight, together with Autohide

With luck, I'll release a new patch tonight, with fixed messages for the horde and featuring the experimental version of the healing monitor. Use at your own risk, while tanking Anub'Arak adds it destroyed my ear drums almost...

Ofcourse, this was before I made the kill switch for the alarm

Thanks for the heads up!
Ah lol Hordie ftw
