Faceroller  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.2.9
by: hungtar [More]
please accept my apology for abandoning this addon and not answering your support requests.

I don't play wow anymore and thus any request will remain unaswered.


What is Faceroller?

Faceroller is an addon in the spirit of Event Horizon with the look of Faceshooter. It's focus lies on using a minimal amount of screen space while showing anything you need to know at the moment.

It will show you only one icon on the screen: the highest priority ability, which should be used next. Once the ability was used, it will reevaluate all cooldowns and debuffs on your target and present you the next spell.

As this needs tracking of cooldowns and debuffs and making decisions what to suggest when, Faceroller is split into modules. And to get some use out of Faceroller, you will need a module that fits your talent spec (See below for a list of modules).

You will get little or no use out of Faceroller if your toon is below level 80!


What Faceroller is NOT

First and foremost, Faceroller is not all knowing. It only keeps track of your current target and therefore can assist you only with a single target.


How to use Faceroller

First, you will need a module that works with your spec. There are currently modules available for the following specs:
  • Warrior:
  • Shadow Priest
  • Balance Druid
  • Deathknight:
    • Frost 1 (included, experimental*, by hectolight, module name: dkdwfrost)
    • Frost 2 (included, experimental*, by Kallsuh, module name: dkdwfrost_Kall)
    • unholy
    • blood
  • Paladin:
    • Retribution
    • Prot (included, experimental*, by lloydbates)
  • Warlock:
  • Hunter:
    • mm/sv/bm hunters (included, all in one module named simplehunter)
  • Shaman:
    • Enhancement (included)
    • Elemental (included, experimental*)
  • Mage:
    • FFB (included, experimental*)
    • Arcane (included, experimental*)
  • Rogue:

* These modules may not always work as expected. If they don't, please leave a comment.

If you see the message "init failed for module ... (Reason: none given)" enable debug output with /fr debug. Make sure your character knows all the spells, required by the module you are using, before reporting it as a bug!

Install a module of your choice along with Faceroller. Start WoW. You can fire up the GUI with /fr config or by clicking on the LDB plugin (if you have a broker display).

Note: Faceroller rememberrs different modules for both specs, if you have dual spec. If you switch specs for the first time after installing Faceroller, don't forget to configure!

Note: All modules require your character to be level 80 to work!

Getting started with your own module

Writing your own module can be as easy as editing a lua table. See Faceroller_EasyExample (included in the zip) for an example how that works.

If the possibilities provided by the Easy* API are too restraining, you will need some knowledge of lua or you will have a hard time writing your own module. Have a look at Faceroller_ExampleModule (included in the zip). It's a simple module that does the same as Faceroller_EasyExample but with a more complex API. The comments are quiet extensive and should give you a good overview how things work.

The module Faceroller_SimpleEnhancementShaman uses a mixture of both and might help you as well with getting started.

Also, have a look at the documentation at github. If you have further questions, leave a comment.


Want to share your module?

If you wrote a module but you don't want to maintain it yourself, i can include it in the zip here. Just send me a PM or leave a comment where i can find your module. Note: since i won't be able to test all modules, new included modules will be marked as experimental for a few weeks. If too many people complain about an experimental module, it will get deleted. So please make sure it really works.

Following is a (possibly incomplete) list of specs, for which there is currently no module:
  • Feral Druid
  • Rogue: assassination, subtlety

Credits
  • Icon skin taken from oUF_Fleetfood.
  • Idea for corner indicators from Grid.

is the frame supposed to be click through?

As the subject states I'm curious if the frame is supposed to be click through or if I am encountering some buggy behavior.

If I target a hostile the frame pops up as normal but I cannot click through it to the screen behind to do any sort of mouse driven camera movement. When I clear my target and the frame disappears then I can use the area the frame was in to do mouse movement again.

Any ideas on this?

Don't have your module code, yet. I wrote you a PM about that. The website wants to install activex controls or something, i don't know. Just copy n' paste the module in a PM. That saves us both the trouble of dealing with other web sites.

No. If its not working then there is a bug. I won't add an option to work around the bug.

The check for the Strength of Earth totem buff is working by itself and the check for the Horn of Winter buff is working by itself. I will try to find a shaman with some time to spare now to figure out whats going on there.

Edit: I made some changes to the module. Let me know if it works now.

Code:
/script x=GetSpellInfo(58646); print(x);
That should print a localized version of "Strength of Earth" (the buff provided by the totem).

Was the module saying you should use Horn of Winter the whole time? When running out of totem range (and back in) it may take a few seconds until you get the buff back. Maybe that happened.

Thanks for all from Spain, and keep up the good work!

Ok different question: would it be possible to add a check to see if you have the Glyph of Disease as a DK? Currently, the module tells me to put up Icy Touch and Plague Strike, but it would often be easier and more desirable to cast Pestilence to refresh both those diseases at the same time.

You might also want to add values to check if you have enough rage to actually use the abilities. The table entries name for that would be power. For revenge the entry should look like:
Code:
	[57823] = {	-- revenge
		priority = 300,
		type = "spell",
		reactive = true,
		power = 5,
	},
That should do the trick.
