Cascade  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.0.1
by: Turkleton [More]
Cascade is a Compact Combat Log Addon intended to show combat log events pertinent to you! Events are displayed in a compact format, giving you just the information you need. Events are separated based upon whether or not the player is the source or the destination.

Cascade was based on EavesDrop by Grayhoof. Original concept by Bant.

Events
  • Player Damage, Healing, and Power Gains/Losses
  • Pet Damage and Healing
  • Vehicle Damage and Healing
  • Aura Gains and Fades
  • Incoming/Outgoing Dispels and Interrupts
  • Experience, Honor, Reputation, and Skill-ups
  • Deaths and Killing Blows
  • Entering/Leaving Combat

Features
  • Link Events: Shift clicking any event will insert that event with full combat log text into your chat frame's edit box.
  • More Linking Options: Right click any event to link the spell (if available) and a clean version of the event (without overkill/overhealing)
  • Combat Summary: One line summary to show incoming/outgoing healing and damage.
  • History Tracking: Track large hit/crit damaging attacks and spells as well as heals.
  • Spam Control: Filter events based on the amount of Damage/Healing/Power as well as the spell's name or spell id.
  • Aura Filters: Filter which aura events are displayed based upon who originally cast the aura.

Advanced Options

Some options can't be set using the GUI. be sure to check the Advanced Options page for more details.

I've been following this addon on WoWace since it popped up. I really like it, but to switch over from Eavesdrop, I would like to have the text fade out after a certain time until I interact with the window to review the info. I really like the improvements, and this feature would be the closer for me to switch.

You, sir, made my day err, my whole month in fact! Even Father Christmas won't be able to rejoice me more

Edit: just found an issue, when I scroll the frame the whole game freezes until my mouse actually stops to scroll. It may be due to the fact I made the events history 5,000 lines long I'll try with less.

Edit2: reduced to 400 lines, and still lags a lot when scrolling fast.

Edit3: One important thing is that I use smooth scrolling (not indentend) so that may send too many events for the addon to handle.

Edit4: Spell school Shadowfrost is missing from the list. It shows as standard purple, whatever shadow's color is.
Edit5: looks like you have blended spell schools, but it does not react to changes to shadow's color.

@Limb0: I've been hoping to add fading option sometime soon, just not sure how I want to implement it yet.

@x: I tried scrolling on 3 different systems and didn't have any issues with scrolling lagging my game. I'm not quite sure what smooth scrolling is, but I use a Logitech mouse that uses the Hyper scroll whatever and I've had no issues with scrolling at all. Any additional information will help me debug this, because I've been unable to recreate the lag you're seeing.

Shadowfrost is blended properly, but it may look a bit odd since you're blending blue with purple.

Oh well, it actually blends shadow's color with frost's? My bad, it does work then.

The smooth scrolling I'm refering to is (for lack of better words) the scrolling without the little indentations we feel under the finger when scrolling, I can scroll really fast. See?

Edit: What actually causes the lag is, I guess, the enormous amount of data a fast scroll induces.

@x: I'm still unable to recreate the lag. Any chance you can provide an addon list? Do you still have lag if you disable all other addons?

I'm really not sure where you want errors posted as the wowace page does not have a tickets area. I get this error with every version of the addon except 0.9.1-beta Beta Normal 13 Dec 2009 3.3.0 Cascade-0.9.1-beta.zip

Just downloaded this mod today after getting tired of dealing with the standard combat log. I enjoy it, and it is extremely easy to use/configure. I only have one request though: an option to hide the window outside of party/raid and/or instances.

Sorry, I haven't checked WoWInterface in a while.

@Polarcom: Not quite sure what that error is as I don't understand Russian. I hope the bug has been fixed in the latest version. If not, feel free to post again.

@Hygieia: I'm not still not sure about implementing a way to show/hide the window based on group settings. Personally, I don't see why you would want to hide the frame outside of a party/raid as the information is still pertinent.

I was curious as to why this was updated? I see no change log so I'm not sure as to why I need to update to this new version vs. the other version? Sorry to be a bother :O

@Ferous: Changelog is up. Was hoping to find a good way to display the git changelog, but I'm guessing most people won't understand my commit messages.

I get this aswell, for me it's caused my the addon "Altoholic" (which hooks the tooltip function). It starts using up massive ammounts of CPU time. (Altoholic that is, not Cascade)

Edit: After disabling Altoholic it turns out that TipTac starts using all the CPU time instead. Guess Altoholic only showed up as the cause in my CPU profiling addon because it hooked the tiptac function.

@hid: I just tried scrolling with Altaholic and TipTac both enabled and found no visible lag.

Just for some clarification:
  • I'm assuming when we are talking about lag we are talking about a significant, noticeable drop in fps?
  • Does the lag occur when scrolling over an empty frame, say after a fresh load of the UI?
  • Does the lag disappear when Altaholic isn't loaded? When Cascade is the only addon enabled?
  • Does the lag still occur when CPU profiling is disabled?

Additionally, if you could post a full addon list or a screenshot of addons folder it might help me to recreate this lag.

1) Yes, it actually "stutters", FPS drops down <1.
2) No, it only happens when scrolling over actual combat log history (ie, only when the tooltip shows). It doesn't only happen during scrolling, just moving the mouse quickly up and down over the cascade window causes the lag, although to a lesser degree.
3) I'll have to get back to you about this tomorrow, I can't log on at the moment.
4) Yes.

Here's a list of my addon folder (not all of these addons are enabled though): http://pastebin.ca/1788648
