GCD Spectator
Version: 2.0
by: Tituspullo_x [More]
This addon is meant to make it easier for spectators or people watching videos to see what is going on.

It shows the last used ability and then slides and fades out, very similar to the GCD Watcher on the NAO Tournament UI. I couldn't find an addon like it, so I decided to make my own.

Currently the only supported frames are

Player, Party1, Party2, Party3, Arena1, Arena2, and Arena3.

If there's any interest in this at all I can add others or other people can, w/e

This is my first addon, so I kinda figured out things as I went, let me know if anyone see anything wrong with it

UPDATES IN 2.0
---------------
Added a pause before the ability fades out, similar to how the NAO one works
changed options around
included all the right libraries
added an internal white list/blacklist to decide what abilities are shown instead of just everything
fixed others/small bugs


Usage:
type /gcd for options, the options should be self explanitory

Thanks for a very usefull addon. Just gonna point out/suggest a few things.

- Mage abilities has not been whitelisted as far as I can see.

- Would be nice with profile management in the config screen, one would have to edit savedvariables atm to share profiles, etc.

- It could be usefull to enable/disable depending on what type of zone you're in.

- Being able to anchor to frames in the config. A lot of people use setups with party/raids frames that move dynamically according to group size.

I took a break for awhile.

I plan to add masque/button facade and the target frame support in the next version...I'm not sure why I didn't add target in the first place...there had to be a reason

Going to try it out
Edit: Since you have Player and Party 1-3 windows it would make sense to also add a Target window, to make it just like in nao
Also when using multiple abilities of which some are off the GCD the icons appear on top of each other making it hard to see which ability was used
Also the arena anchors seem to reset their position each restart, can't confirm it yet.

Something like that probably would have been a more fitting title, because yes, it tracks all abilities used, not just the ones on the GCD.

I'll probably change the name to something like that on the next version, as after watching the NAO stream again, the abilities pause for a second when used, then fade out and start moving faster as they fade. Mine simply fade out at a set time, I think I like the NAO versions better, so I'm just going to mimic that the best I can.

Thanks for the comment.
