FlareUP
Version: 1.38-50400
by: Dridzt [More]
FlareUP
... is yet another addon for using the new World Markers (flares)
as a party leader, raid leader or officer without going through the compact raid manager.

So why another one?
  • It's a different implementation that doesn't rely on the usual
    Code:
    /click CompactRaidFrameManagerDisplayFrameLeaderOptionsRaidWorldMarkerButton
    /click DropDownList1Button1
    macros every other world marker addon is using.
  • I prefer the small button approach that I can drag to any side of the screen to a bar.
  • It has marker timers.
  • *new* v1.33 and onwards adds world marker key-binds to the Game Options.
Alright... are you going to add?
-button customization
-sharedmedia support,
-sounds and libsink announce for expiring markers,
-bars instead of text timers,
-dancing hippos
-...

Probably not, it suits me fine as it is.
Hope you find it useful as well.

Configuration:
/flareup pos
Show the button out of party for positioning. Flares will not work. Type it again to hide.
/flareup timers
Toggles timers on/off.

Known issues:
- Timers do not persist following a reload.
- I've tried to make the timers smart but there is a small chance of "false" positives
depending what you do after you load a flare to the cursor and before you actually put it down.
(fx clicking an actionbutton instead of the "world" or clicking out of range)
v1.38-50400
------------
- toc update, compatible with WoW 5.4.0 "Siege or Orgrimmar"

v1.38-50300
------------
- .toc update, compatible with WoW 5.3.0

v1.38-50200
------------
- update group triggers.
- .toc update, compatible with WoW 5.2.0

v1.37-50001
------------
- quick update for WoW 5.0.5/MoP, probably the last one as I'm considering to retire this mod :)
- will probably keep working for a while if no major changes to the game.

v1.36-40300
------------
- remove some debug code from secure keybinds (no functional changes)

v1.35-40300
------------
- more improvements to marker timers
(mouse buttons 3 to 5 could confuse the addon, and /cwm 0 wasn't clearing timers properly)
- attempt to fix the 'C stack overflow' error reported by Zidomo @wowi.
(can't reproduce it myself but I have an idea what might have been the issue)

v1.34-40300
------------
- bufix 4.3 enable/disable logic (was incorrectly enabling in raid when not RL/assistant)
- world marker timer changes
-- timer shadow and anchoring.
-- timers count down again. Assumed time-out of 1hour (unverified!)
- keybind menu changes (Esc -> Keybinds -> FlareUP)

v1.33-40300
------------
- update for raid manager frame changes
- new feature: world marker key-binds
- .toc update, compatible with Hour of Twilight (4.3)

v1.32-40200
------------
- .toc update

v1.32-40000
------------
- don't leave timers and updates running in the background when leaving a party / losing lead.

v1.31-40000
------------
- seems world markers are persistent after 4.0.6 (last until recalled) and not 5mins.
Timers will count up instead of countdown.

v1.3-40000
-----------
- WoW 4.0.6 API update.
FlareUP timers now respond to individual flare clears as well as "clear all".

v1.2-40000 (unreleased)
-----------
- another try at preventing taint

v1.1-40000
-----------
- More aggressive detection of combat status following a reloadUI or logging in combat.

Find this in your core.lua file using a text editor

Code:
function eventframe.PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED()
local inRaid = GetRealNumRaidMembers()>0
local inParty = (not inRaid) and (GetRealNumPartyMembers()>0)
if inParty or (inRaid and IsRaidLeader() or IsRaidOfficer()) then
and change it to:

Code:
function eventframe.PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED()
local inRaid = GetNumGroupMembers()>0
local inParty = (not inRaid) and (GetNumSubgroupMembers()>0)
if inParty or (inRaid and UnitIsGroupLeader() or UnitIsGroupAssistant()) then


This seems to do the trick

Thanks I guess
I know how to fix it (that's not the only issue with it) just not sure I'll keep the mod going for MoP yet.
