LivingBomber - a simple Living Bomb monitor
Version: 1.0.6
by: boomboo [More]
LivingBomber is a simple Living Bomb monitor. It creates a bar per Living Bomb on a target.

Features:
1. Raid marks are supported and shown (see the image).
2. Your current target's bar is more visible (the rest are dimmed).
3. Correctly tracks the Living Bombs spread via Impact.
4. Extremely light weight.

Configuration:
1. There is no ingame configuration, nor is one planned.
2. You can change the anchor's location, bar width, size, scale and growth direction (UP, DOWN) in the LivingBomber.lua file.

4.x notes:
* When LB is spread via Impact you'll see X bars appear and then instantly disappear with only 1-3 remaining that's due to Blizzards buggy implementation of target limiting (ie. it actually applies LB to all the mobs and then removes it from some).

Notes:
* There is a limitation where if a raid mark is placed/removed on a mob you already have a Living Bomb on, the bar's icon will not be changed untill the bar expires.
* It's possible to adapt this to another spell (lua knowledge is required).
* This was NOT written to track a single debuff.
* Your combat log must be working (it is in 99% of the cases unless it was disabled or it has crashed).

It might be a case of something else in your UI hiding the bars, also the addon only works while in combat which means there might be edge cases where if you put a Living Bomb up while out of combat the bar won't show it's a limitation I can live with.

it doenst work either! i tried everything!, it wont work with 4.1 patch!

Just saying "it doesn't work" is not constructive, are there errors, did you enable error reporting. Is your combat log working ie. Recount or similar addon is working or not.

Try disabling all the addons apart from LivingBomber, as far as I know there shouldn't be any cases of addons causing it to not work but who knows.

Also delete the living bomber folder redownload it from here, make sure the zip you got is called livingbomber104.zip and copy it back to Interface\AddOns, it sounds like you both didn't update the addon correctly.

The Living Bomber widget does not show for me either.

I do get the messages in my chatwindow regarding too early refreshes, etc.

But as soon as I cast LB on a target, the LB tracker is not visible. I don't receive any LUA errors.

Things I checked:

- No errors
- Deactivated all addons except LivingBomber --> No success
- Changed the SetPoint value in the LUA file into: lb:SetPoint("CENTER", 0, 0); --> No success
- Reinstalled LivingBomber 4 times now, with downloads from different sources (Curse, WoWInterface, etc)

I have a 23inch widescreen LCD, perhaps it has something to do with the resolution of the screen?

LivingBomber doesn't print anything in the chat maybe you're getting confused with another addon.

I'll upload a debug version here so that anyone having any issues could try.

Try this:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ber-debug.html

It should print status messages, eg. "LivingBomber: loaded.", "LivingBomber: ++combat".

If your addon doesn't work replace it with the above version and post here whatever it announces.

The only explanation for that is that you haven't updated the addon properly before.

EDIT: Scratching the not-working reports as inability to update an addon. Also the debug version should be removed shortly, for the next version I'll just add a print out on load that announces LivingBomber as operational and the currently working version.

Not Working

Living Bomber enabled, nothing else enabled, position set to 0,0 LB taking up 13kB memory but the bars don't show up on a target dummy, nor anywhere else. I updated by replacing my old LB folder with the new one.

Fix

Found the fix. Your folder name isn't capitalized. Changing the folder name from "livingbomber" to "LivingBomber" fixed it.

That's quite odd, for consistency the folder should be capitalized (I'll make sure it is for the next version) but that said at least on a windows machine it works either way, are you using a Mac?

Excellent, thank you very much for testing it, as I posted earlier that will be fixed in the next release.
