MagicMarker
Version: 1.10
by: Malsomnus [More]
MagicMarker is a powerful tool that allows you to automatically mark mobs during combat.

I wrote this add-on during a progression raid on Horridon HC, because DBM didn't have the option of marking the big adds (yes, I know they added it eventually). It's meant to give a raid leader all the flexibility that existing tools like DBM don't give you, plus a few more interesting features.

So what does it do?
* Enter any mob's name, and select up to 8 marks for it. Mobs by that name will be marked one by one. When the marks run out, it will use the marks from the start of the list again (so if adds in a boss fight spawn one by one, you just need to set their name with one mark).
* Since WoW does not allow to mark just anything, the add-on will mark mobs if they're targeted by anyone in your raid, or if you mouse over them. The mouse-over feature allows you to easily set up marks for kill order/ CC on trash pulls (for example, the Greater Cave Bats before Tortos) or groups of adds that spawn at the same time.
* You can choose to mark each mob only if it's hostile or only if it's friendly, which is useful in PvP or when Blizzard decides that mobs should summon Healing Tide Totems.
* A global on/off button for the unlikely case that somebody else in your raid wants to handle the marking.

To bring up the MagicMarker console, simply type "/mmm".
If for some reason it doesn't mark the mobs in the correct order, try "/mmm reset" (and let me know because I thought I fixed it in v1.01).

Like it? Tell your friends!
Don't like it? Tell me so I can improve it!
Found a bug? Tell me so I can fix it!
Want a new feature? Also tell me, because I'm out of ideas!

v1.09
* Minor bugfix
* Increased throttle

v1.08
* More performance improvements.

v1.07
* Fixed Friend/ Enemey detection.

v1.06
* Added Friend/ Enemey buttons for each mob.

v1.05
* Fixed a bug that I stupidly introduced a few hours ago in v1.04.

v1.04

v1.03
* Still trying to improve end of combat detection.

v1.02
* Added a button to enable/ disable everything, for the wildly unlikely case that somebody else in your raid wants to handle the marks.
* A bunch of improvements to the user experience.

v1.01
* The add-on should detect the end of combat much better now.
* Added the "/mmm reset" command, just in case.

I haven't tested this addon yet but is it possible to mark e.g. 4 different mobs with the same name with 4 marks?

Yep, that's the idea
For example, you type the name Farraki Wastewalker (big adds from Horridon phase 1) and put a skull, cross and circle. So the first one that spawns will get a skull, the second one will get a cross and the third one will get a circle.

I quickly looked over your code (because I wanted to find out how you do the scanning of all raid member's targets) and noticed that you use many global variables and - what's very bad - leak some global variables that have common names ("name" and "guid").
I suggest to use FindGlobals or Wow Global Finder (just a GUI for FindGlobals) on all your Lua files to find unwanted globals.

Btw, did you notice that there is a different addon on Curse that is also named MagicMarker? Seems like it's abandoned, but still a bit confusing.

Hmmm, I'll go over it. I know I sometimes forget to add the 'local' but I'm surprised there's many of them. Thanks for the tip!
On the bright side, now I have a reason to release another version! I was getting worried that this add-on was too... complete

And no, I didn't know there was another add-on by this name. I can only hope this won't confuse too many people.

[Edit]
Well, after some reading and some using that tool, I've made a few changes which I hope will improve performance. Thanks

Thanks, I will fix this today.
I assume that this happened on the first time you ran the game after installing the add-on?

Yes. I had just installed it and not ran or opened it.


Thanks for the fix, and will let you know if there's anymore errors in Bugsack.


Happy Holidays!
