gxCooldowns  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5a
by: Guardix [More]
Description
gxCooldowns is a cooldown AddOn that provides information through icons and a cooldown spiral.
It tries to be as efficient as possible while only checking for cooldown information for the spell you cast at the given moment.
The AddOn itself does not provide visual numbers, you will need to have OmniCC to get those.
It has a powerful and easy growth management and you can choose between left, right, up, down...
You can even make it grow evenly in two directions.

Spells, pet abilities, items and engineering enchants are supported.

You may blacklist spells you don't wish to track.


New in 1.5!
  • ButtonFacade support
  • In-game configuration, widgets handled by tekKonfig
  • A new sexy spellschool lockdown feature!

1.5a
- Changed the minimum value of the button gap to -10.

1.5
- Added maximum duration setting.
- Now scans item and spell cooldowns on login.
- Removed the text output for when spells are interrupted. Properly fixed and replaced with a shiny border around the spell that was interrupted.
- In-game configuration.
- No longer watches Divine Favor cooldown as a special occasion.

1.4
- minDuration, a new setting that allows you to set the minimum duration of triggered cooldowns.
- Update 'Feral Charge - Bear' when 'Feral Charge - Cat' is cast, as they share cooldown timings.
- Redid the items part to now recognize the item being used from it's spell. For example, Mana potions have a spell called 'Restore Mana', when this is cast it'll look up the items table to recognize if an item in the table has that spell as item spell (GetItemSpell).
- Redid the enchant part. It now scans your gear for enchants of our wish when we log in and updates an item if you un- or equip it. This way, when you cast a spell it looks up the spell directly to a slotID.
an item that has it as spell.
- Added Stealth and Prowl to our special occasions.
- Getting ready for localization for the new spell lock feature.

1.3
- Now scans the spellbook when you reload your UI or when you log in.

1.2a
- Reworked the scanning of enchants. It should hopefully not crash the client anymore.
- Fixed an error that was caused when swapping talents, when you had an ability on cd that only was present in the other spec.

1.2
- Now scans your gear for enchants like Nitro Boosts (let me know if it doesn't work or if it throws errors).
- Minor fix for some pet error.

1.1
- Added a blacklist.
- Moved configuration to an external file.

1.0
- Initial release.

Hi i love your addon, thx alot for the great work! There is one option i however miss, would it be possible to add a option to move each button Independent. This would alow me to align them individually, its often hard to eye track a specifc spell while having alot of cds running in a long bar line, ontop it would add to the aesthetic factor to position each button around personalized ui elements.

That's great to hear, I would even be happy with just the ability to make custom timers, so that i can have the addon start an arbitrary countdown when a certain item/spell/buff is used

I have an idea that it might be caused by the new rank system. I just went and tried the trap thing on my hunter, and the cooldowns showed up just nicely. However this is with a couple of changes that will be in the next release.

Is it able to track internal cooldowns (a lot of trinkets, for example, have hidden 45 second cd's)?

And if not, could it? :P

Thanks for this great addon. I've been looking for something like this for quite some time. I did notice though that it is picking up only my Snake Trap cooldown and not any other of my traps.

Code:
if (gxMedia) then
	local tex = _G[name.."NormalTexture"]
	tex:SetTexture(gxMedia.buttonOverlay)
end
And plus some position tweaking. Now it looks exactly what I want. Thanks

Ah I see, it has to be due to the fact that the cooldown starts when you start shooting. Should hopefully be fixed next release.

I wanted to thank you for this addon. I've been wanting something more configurable than Cooling, and this appears to be it! My only real issue so far is on my hunter, where it doesn't seem to be picking up the cooldown on Misdirection. Otherwise just about perfect. Keep up the good work, sir.

Next release will have an ugly fix for the engineering enchants, it now scans the tooltip instead to identify if the item is enchanted.

Also I will probably work with spellIDs only, but I guess it doesn't matter to you.

I know you said they support engineering items, and you can also add id/names in the options, but still I can't make them work.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance, and sorry if this have been clarified.
It seems Blizzard changed the item links so they no longer provide engineering enchants I'm trying to come up with an alternative method to know when it's used.

Hey, love ur addon, one small problem though.

I'm a bear tank and for some reason your addon does not show the 6 second CD for my swipe ability. It shows all my other CD's just fine.

Any ideas? =/
With the changes made to ranks, bear form and cat form have the same ability name for Swipe. That is why it doesn't work, however I can simply make it read from spellID instead. A fix will be released soon
