FaceMelter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.333
by: cystacae [More]
I am Etherwind of US-Darkspear and have taken over development of the original facemelter and pushed it into the current age. This is an addon that deals with rotations for shadow priests. This more helps the novice to become a better dps machine and to better manage their spells. Can you get more dps if you are a number cruncher? Probably if you manage manually and have proper timing but the general wow populace need to learn these things. This addon does exactly that.

Finalizing the Face Melter one project with a few more bug fix versions as I am developing Face Melter 2! The new code will be able to handle more changes and will add MANY new features including latency compensation, mind flay clipping support, and movement compensation on spells for maximum dps, and even more past this small list. I will also allow me to fix things without checking a obscene amount of code as well as streamlining it and reducing bloat. Once a public Alpha is available I will be posting it to the optional files section.

Face Melter 2 is now dubbed Face Melter Zwei and features a new visual design for the suggester frame as well as support for many new features. The first release test alpha is scheduled for 2 weeks from now. Among the added features are cooldown indicators (covering Shadowfiend, Dispersion, and Inner Focus), Record keeping for the last two prior spells casted indicated by the new GUI. Latency, cast time, and GCD compensation and cast planning. Turn off SW: D and Mind Blast completely or only have them used in certain conditions (ie. Mind Blast used unless under Heroism/Bloodlust or SW: D only used when target is under a certain percentage or while moving). Support for primary and secondary specs. And many more things planned, also I applied for a Cataclysm Beta Key to plan a Cataclysm release.
v.3.333
-------
- Cleaned up and gave more explanation to the Interface Options.
- Modified some settings concerning priority (should not affect current installations).
- Removed a coding bug which created an issue with not suggesting Mind Blast when a player has 2pT10+.

v3.332
-------
- Added a requested change for the timing on Mind Blast in correlation to Vampiric Touch when using 2pT10 (untested as my priest doesn't have any set pieces).
- Changed a lot of mathematical computation concerning GCD, spell haste, spell duration, and spell CD that was still residual from old times (prior to me taking over). This allowed for a smoother and better running suggestion box.
- Added some changes to try to compensate for GCD and cast time in the suggestion of Vampiric Touch and Devouring Plague. These changes in tests allow me to maintain from 95%-100% up times respectively in tests.
- Worked a bit more to refine the Heroism/Bloodlust support.
- Did I mention lots and LOTS of math?! Oh and extra assurance checks to hopefully allow me to improve things for the future.

v3.331
-------
- Should not request to reapply Shadow Word: Pain when Shadow Word: Pain is up.

v3.330
-------
- Now only suggests Shadow Word: Pain upon 5 stacks of Shadow Weaving. Adjusts priority for this very reason. (Tested, Works, and enabled)
- Should support heroism/bloodlust (still to be tested but enabled at this moment)
- Fixed some issues with early and late suggestions.
- General cleaning of the code and added some code based documentation for 3rd party developers. Also removed some now defunct code or alpha staged undocumented code that was sloppy or poorly written.

v3.320
-------
- First release to www.wowinterface.com
- Added support for tier 9, tier 10 and Mind Blast removal from the rotation as well as various code cleaning duties and preliminary upper support for heroism/bloodlust and shadow weaving the latter two things not implimented or enabled.

Yes, I have to undo a change I made... which has been done in v3.333.

MB not showing up

This is a great add-on. Thanks for all the work you've put into picking it up and updating it.

I've had a problem with v3332, though.

It acts as though I've deselected including MB in the rotation. I've deselected and reselected the option and tried several priority settings. I've reset my saved variables.

I've gone back and tried all versions starting with v3320, resetting saved variables between installations. All work fine except for v3332. I'm currently using v3331 without problems.

I hope this info helps you run down any bugs you're trying to eliminate. If you need more details, I'll be glad to give them.

Oh, I am wearing two pieces of T10 if that makes a difference.

Thanks again.

Edit: D'oh...thought I'd read all the thread before posting. Sorry for the duplicate report.

yes it had to do with a request someone made I was going to make enable-able but was using it for testing purposes of leaving it enabled... guess it failed as I thought it did when necrolai had the issue. I will comment it out for a public update.

The error seems to be in this code:

Lines 814-820

-- if tierTenCount >= 2 then
-- touchTimed = FaceMelter.touchList[guid]
-- FaceMelter.blastDelay = 8
-- elseif tierTenCount < 2 then
-- touchTimed = FaceMelter.touchList[guid]
-- FaceMelter.blastDelay = 0
-- end

Not sure why the MB cooldown time is being changed here. The T10 2 set bonus has nothing to do with the CD or maybe I'm reading the code wrong. I have commented this code out and the mod works fine.

Ok.. the problem seems to be with the Chest Piece. I get MB with just the shoulders equiped (1pc) but even if i do one pc chest, no MB in the suggestion box.

Yes I do have 2PC T10, however i swapped out a piece and still had the problem. I reverted back to a previous version and all is well right now.

If there anything i can do to help the testing/troubleshotting I'd be happy to help.

question, do you have 2T10 or better? this is a recent change I made to it and I haven't been able to test it. I know it works for me and I only have 1 piece of tier 10, if so remove your tier pieces and see if it still has a problem and let me know. If it is an issue I will revert the changes for now until I can personally fix it.

Yeah, when I took this over a few changes I made had changed things so drastically it was necessary to remove all old dated as it was obsolete and caused errors and that is when I included the text file.

Thanks, sorry it took so long to get back.

I suppose more of what I was asking is that instead of casting MB off c/d, only recommend casting it directly after a VT cast, just to keep up replensihment. Again, thanks much for picking this up and keeping it updated.

What I did in the meantime is uncheck MB and manually cast it right after VT.
I will look into this and see if I can feesibly make this an auto sensing trait.

VT Priority over MB is and has been there. I have yet to see anytime it has suggested MB over VT when VT needs to be casted unless it is within a small window of time when VT is still on the target (slightly) but MB is off CD and ready. I suppose if it is that much of an issue I can look into extending the time frame of suggestion to look further into the future.

Love this addon; thanks for picking it up!
