Vex Alarm
Version: 2.1.12
by: fuda01 [More]
Vex Alarm shows the user when specific spells are casted or buffs gained or lost.
The user can choose from a list of predefined spells and control whether the spell shall be posted as an "event" when the caster's raidrole is tank,healer,dd or not set (undefined)



Messages

The "event" is a message that is posted by the addon in a frame when an observed spell is casted or an observed buff gained or lost.

The predefined spells are categorized into 5 classes:

buffs
buffs with a single target
buffs without targets
buffs with multiple targets
casts
casts with targets
casts without targets


You can enter a total of 8 different messages for the events. 2 for each buff (gain and fade) and 1 for each cast. The user can choose a color in which the text for the 5 „active“-events (spell cast + buff gained) and for the 3 „inactive“-events (buff lost) is printed in.


Tags


with the following tags you can parse information in the messages:

{caster}
parses the caster's name in a message, printed in the normal textcolor
{caster_sc}
parses the caster's name in a message, printed in a specific color you can choose in the options
{caster_cc}
parses the caster's name in a message, printed in the classcolor
{target}
parses the target's name in a message printed in the normal textcolor
{target_sc}
parses the target's name in a message, printed in a specific color you can choose in the options
{target_cc}
parses the target's name in a message, printed in the classcolor
{spell}
parses the spellname in a message printed in the normal textcolor
{spell_sc}
parses the spellname in a message, printed in a specific color you can choose in the options
{spell_cc}
parses the spellname in a message, printed in the classcolor

{status}
parses an information, printed in the normal textcolor
{status_sc}
parses an information, printed in a specific color you can choose in the options The information {status} and {status_sc} print for active events (spells casted/buffs gained) and inactive events (buffs faided) can be chosen by the user.

Coloring



_sc
Information that is parsed with _sc tags is printed with a color the user can choose
_cc
Information that is parsed with _cc tags is printed with the classcolor which is defined by blizzard

The Information that isn't colored with _sc or _cc has the same color as the normal text. You can choose one color for each event, meaning one for „active“-events (spellcast/buff gain) and one for the „inactive“-events (buff lost). Both colors can be the same.

Information about spells, casters, targets who arent in your group or raid arent colored due to a lag of information in a WoW API.


Example messages:


Peter (Paladin) casts Hand of Sacrifice on Carl (Death Knight)


Examples for colors


{spell} casted by {caster} on {target}
ingame: Hand of Sacrifice casted by Peter on Carl

{spell_sc} casted by {caster_sc} on {target_sc}
ingame: Hand of Sacrifice casted by Peter on Carl

{spell_cc} casted by {caster_cc} on {target_cc}
ingame: Hand of Sacrifice casted by Peter on Carl



Examples for {status}-tags


with „active“ as information parsed with {status}
{spell_cc} casted by {caster_cc} on {target_cc} is now {status}
ingame: Hand of Sacrifice casted by Peter on Carl is now active

with '|||' as information parsed with {status}
{status} {caster_cc} - {spell_cc} - {target_cc} {status}
ingame: ||| Peter – Hand of Sacrifice – Carl |||

If you are allready using Version 2.0, I have no idea personally why there's something wrong and can only recommend to download the latest version. The Version is currently an alpha, but has been tested and seems bug free, so I'll tag it as a release and upload it in a few seconds.

If the problem consists, please report again. It would help if you let wow show lua errors und post a possible lua error here.

Cheers,

From a clean install I dont get any spells in the options, something is wrong with the latest version :/

yeah, its not a selfbuff since you can cast it on someone else. Must have categorized it wrong. I moved it to buffs.
You can use it with the latest alpha version on
