Battleground Bang

Version: 1.1.3
by: natch [More]

BGBang by Natch

Ever missed a battleground queue because you were surfing and had WoW in the background? No more! This addon will unmute sound (if muted) and play a sound when the battleground queue accept window pops up (even when backgrounded.)

There are a few configuration options for controlling
the volume of the playback, have a look in BGBang.lua for details.

The included bang sound is quite annoying and noticeable, you have been warned.


4.0.1 patch update:
I have removed the ability to set your own soundfile in the configuration
until I can find a clean solution to a certain problem. If you really want
your own however you can still muck around in the code or overwrite bang.mp3.


6.0.2 patch notes:
It seems Blizzard broke PlaySoundFile() so only ogg files are working at the
moment.


FAQ:

Q: Will it re-mute (if originally muted) my sound after playing the sound?
A: Of course.

Q: Will it disable background sound playback (if disabled before) after playing the sound?
A: Indeed.

Q: Will it set my volume to what I had before if I enable loudness?
A: Aye.

Q: Does it work with Wintergrasp as well?
A: Yep.

Q: How many battleground queues have you missed since you wrote this addon?
A: None!

Q: Is there a similar addon for Dungeon Finder queues?
A: There is indeed. You can find it here.

Q: Background sound doesn't work!
A: There seems to be an issue for some where addons cannot enable background sound, so you have to do that manually unfortunately (check the Background sound checkbox in sound options). I've tried to fix it but nothing works. Sorry for the inconvenience.

v1.1.3: Ogg files are working so custom sound is available again.

v1.1.2: 6.0.2 update, custom sounds currently unavailable.

v1.1: 5.4 update.

v1.0b: Updated for the sound effects change (better late than never?)

v1.0a: 4.0.1 update.

The addon info suggests there would be some options, how do I acces them if there are any?

You can find the link to the Dungeon Finder version in the FAQ.
