=== What is RBM? ===
With Cataclysm new heroic instances came and we all know the dificulty is now much harder than it was on wotlk. Many people are forced to go 5 man heros with random groups. The problem: Some of the randoms might not know what the boss mechanics is. In Addition, it might be he is to afraid of asking because he might be kicked. To solve that you can use RBM. RBM explains the boss mechanics of the boss in front of you.
=== How does it work? ===
Just Copy the "RobBossMods" Folder to your Addons folder and the addon is loaded.
When you get in an instance via the dungeon finder the first boss will be loaded automatically and - if configured - the RobBossMods Window will appear
Left-Click on the Minimap Icon/ Titan Panel also toggles the RobBossMods Window and you can send the tactics for the current chosen boss to either Party/Raid,Yourself,Officer or Guild.
Right-Click on the Icon/TP and you will go the setting section.
In the RobBossMods Window you can choose a boss manually and send the tactics. If you target a boss who is supported by RBM then the current Boss will automaticlly set. Also, after a boss died, RBM will load the next boss automaticlly ( only works in linear instances ).
Furthermore there is the possibility to edit the pre-made tactics for each boss. Especially the raid tactics - which i did NOT deliver with this addon (because i think you need some kind of voice communication for raids ) - can be edited and then used in your random raids.
People in your party can do !boss in /p chat or whisper you !boss. In the first case you will post the current boss tactics to /p and in the other case you whisper the tactics to the player who asked.
/rbm show - Shows RBM Frame
/rbm hide - Hides RBM Frame
/rbm toggle - Toggles RBM Frame
/rbm resetlang - Lets you decide whether you want to set addon to german or english ( french and russian users wont get asked )
/rbm minion - Shows Minimap
/rbm minipff - Hides Minimap
/rbm autor - Important Information ^^
!rbminfo (in partychat) posts information on /p
!boss (in partychat) posts tactics on /p
!boss (in /w) you post tactics only person who asked ( in /w )
* Minimapicon and LDB Support (Titan Panel)
premade tactics can be send to either Guild, Raid, Say, Myself or Party
* After entering an instance you can post a hint which is telling other players that you installed this mod and that they can get tactics by typing !boss. Post that hint via RobBossMods Frame
* Every partymember can ask for tactics by typing !boss in party chat and instantly you will post the current tactics to him ( also works with whispers )
* If you wipe or you entered an instance which is already in progress, rbm will automatically set the current boss properly
* When a boss dies the next one will be loaded automatically ( works only in linear instances )
* In every other case the first boss of an instance will be loaded automatically
* You can edit the premade tactics and add your own raidtactic very easily
* Whisper Mode (default disabled): Someone types !boss in partychat and you will whisper him the tactics instead of posting on partychat
* Option (default disabled): By targeting any boss you will sent a hint to the group reminding them to ask for tactics by typing !boss
* Option (default disabled): When a boss dies you will tell in partychat who is the next one
=== Was ist RBM? ===
Mit Cataclysm sind viele neue Instanzen mit Schwierigkeitsgrad "Heroisch" erschienen. VIele sind gezwungen sich mit dem LFG Tools und Randomgruppen herumzuschlagen.
Das Problem: Einige der Randoms kennen die Taktik nicht oder nur unzureichend und sind verunsichert. Mit RBM kann sich das ändern. RBM erklärt schnell und auf Anfrage den Boss, den man vor sich hat.
=== Wie funktioniert es? ===
Einfach RBM in den Interfaces\Addon Ordner packen und das Addon ist geladen.
Werdet ihr eine eine Instanz befördert ( durch Dungeon Browser ) wird der erste Boss der Instanz automatisch geladen.
Mit Linksklick auf das Minimapsymbol kann man das RobBossMods Fenster öffnen.
Mit Rechtsklick öffnet man die Einstellungen.
Im RobBossMods Fenster könnt ihr Bosse manuell auswählen. Ihr könnt dort auch die taktiken der Bosse an diverse Kanäle senden.
Wenn ihr in einer Instanz seid und ihr visiert einen Boss an, wird der als aktuell geladen. Stirbt der Boss dann, wird der nächste automatisch geladen und so weiter.
Kommt ihr in eine Instanz, in der bereits Bosse tot sind, so wird automatisch der aktuelle Boss geladen.
Weiterhin habt ihr die Möglichkeit unter Optionen die Taktiken zu editieren, falls ihr der Meinung seid, dass einige Taktiken falsch oder zu oberflächlich formuliert sind.
Insbesondere für Raids habe ich KEINE Taktiken mitgeliefert, da ich persönlich der Meinung bin, dass man im Raid sowieso im TS sein sollte, um so bessere Absprachen zu treffen.

!rbminfo (im Gruppenchat) gibt Informationen im Gruppenchat aus über das Addon

==== Zusammenfassend: ====
* Minimapsymbol und LDB Support (Titan Panel)
* kann voreingestellte Bosstaktiken posten (Gilde,Raid/Gruppe,sich selber,Gruppe)
* Man kann nach Belieben nach Betreten einer Instanz mit dem RBM Fenster einen Hinweis senden, dass man dieses Addon installiert hat und die Taktiken mit !boss erfragbar sind
* In Instanzen kann jedes Gruppenmitglied mit !boss die Taktik erfragen, welche dann automatisch im Gruppenchat gepostet wird ( auch anflüstern geht )
* bei einem Wipe oder bereits toten Bossen in der Instanz wird der aktuell richtige Boss automatisch geladen
* Stirbt ein Boss, wird der korrekte neue Boss geladen ( in linearen Instanzen )
* Ansonsten wird beim erstmaligen Betreten der erste Boss jeder Instanz automatisch geladen
* Man kann die voreingestellten Taktiken nach Bedarf beliebig anpassen und damit auch Raidtaktiken selbst eintragen
* Flüster-Modus (standard aus): Auf !boss folgt kein posten im Gruppenchat, sondern als Whisper für die Person, die angefragt hat
* Option (standard aus): Beim Anvisieren eines Bosses wird nochmals im Gruppenchat der Hinweis gegeben, dass die Taktik abfragbar ist mit !boss
* Option (standard aus): Beim Ableben eines Bosses wird angesagt wer der nächste ist ( in linearen Instanzen )

- tried to fix as many blizzard spell Links crazy actions as i could
- found out new links via digging in the files, it can be faulty it can be incomplete but tactics WILL work, it just may be that i forgot some links ....

because blizzard decided to completely change some spelll IDs, some tactics are broken. if they are broken you will see the old spell id without link.
