PartySpotter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v5.17.70000
by: spiel2001, Telic
Telic has been kind (crazy) enough to allow me to take over the care and feeding of this beast. Please be patient with me a bit while I get up to speed on the code. I'll get regular updates going as soon as I can. In the meantime, please feel free to visit PartySpotter's official technical support forum in the "Support" section at http://forums.nUIaddon.com for any questions or comments you may have on this addon.

Summary

Small, standalone Modification that adds extra information to the Party/Raid dots and tooltips (compatible with BG Raid groups).
Compatible with WorldMap, BattlefieldMinimap, AlphaMap (including AlphaMap Battleground maps).

Has Multiple viewing modes - just use the provided key binding or Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter button to cycle through them when in a Raid/Battleground and see which mode you find most useful.

Default mode displays player dots as numbered icons showing the Raid Group they belong to, and are also coloured based on the character class of that player.

Rings around player dots will also indicate when players are :
Corpses (Black ring)
Ghosts (Grey ring)
AFK/Inactive (Pink ring)
In Combat (Red ring)

Now integrated with both the Raid Frame, and the Battlefield Score Board
: mouse over players to flash their position on the map.
: mouse over Class buttons to highlight all players of that class on the map.
: Alt-Click on Players to permanently highlight them and track them via the minimap

Individual groups can be highlighted on the map by clicking on that group number in the PartySpotter Map Key (Map Legend).

Chat messages can be prefixed with the number of the Raid Group a player is in, and/or they can be coloured based on the Raid group the player is in if viewing Coloured Raid group dots.

Can also highlight Friends or Ignores or Guild Mates in the Raid. Key binding or WorldMap Button can be used to cycle through the different highlighting modes.

Use a key binding or <Control>-Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter button to show/hide Map Keys.

Can also track the Raid Leader via slash command

USE "/pspot" FOR A STATUS REPORT AND A FULL LIST OF SLASH COMMANDS.



IMPORTANT KEY BINDINGS INTENDED AS THE MAIN / EASIEST WAY TO CHANGE PARTYSPOTTER BEHAVIOUR
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Key binding to highlight your Party members only so you can check where they are
Press again to go back to the viewing mode you were using previously

- Key binding to cycle through the main PartySpotter modes
1.) Show Numbered Raid sub-groups coloured by Character Class
2.) Show Differently Coloured Raid sub-groups
3.) Show Numbered Raid sub-groups
4.) Show Player dots Coloured based on Character Class
5.) Show All Other Raid sub-groups in the same colour
NOTE: Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to cycle through the above viewing modes


- Key binding to cycle through the PartySpotter highlighting functions
1.) Friends
2.) Ignores
3.) Guild mates
4.) No Highlighting
NOTE: Right-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to cycle through the highlighting modes


- Key binding to Show/Hide the Map Keys
NOTE: <Control>-Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to Show/Hide the Map Keys



Slash Commands
--------------

/pspot : Displays the status of PartySpotter, and this list of Commands

/pspot 0 : Disable PartySpotter (i.e. /pspot followed by a zero)

/pspot <1 - 10> : Enable PartySpotter and set the delay between WorldMap Updates in seconds.
Default value at install is 10.
PartySpotter is now mainly event driven, so I'd suggest "/pspot 10" is the best way to enable PartySpotter if previously disabled.
(It is possible to use a decimal point and set this vaue to 0.5, or 3.6 for example)

/pspot showgroups combined : If in a Raid, then player dots will show the Raid Group number they belong to, AND the dots will be coloured based on the character's Class

/pspot showgroups icons : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by different coloured icons

/pspot showgroups numbers : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by icons clearly marked with their group number

/pspot showgroups off : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by the same Orange icon. Your local Party/group members are still highlighted differently as Blue

/pspot showclasses : If in a Raid, then Player dots will be coloured based on their Character Class as per the colours in the Blizzard Raid Frame

/pspot showfriends : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Friends

/pspot showignores : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Ignores

/pspot showguild : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Guild mates

/pspot -l : to TOGGLE the highlighting of your Raid leader (Marked by a Red "1")

/pspot -t <name> : will highlight the specified individual(s), so that you don't have to mouse over lots of icons to find one single person (Marked by a red "X")
Right-Click Menu option when clicking on a Party/Raid Portrait or Chat frame Name to Highlight a player will also do the same thing.
Highlighted Players will be tracked in the Minimap
The slash command has been extended and can accept multiple names separated by a comma and/or spaces)
To remove an individual player's highlighting, simply highlight them again to toggle them off.
To clear the entire list, use the "/pspot -t" slash command with no name parameter.

/pspot -t : leaving the name blank, will cancel the highlighting of any highlighted player(s)

/pspot -c : to TOGGLE coloured BattleGround/Raid messages when showing different coloured map icons

/pspot -n : to TOGGLE Raid Group Numbered Chat Messages

/pspot -s < 8 - 36 > : to adjust the size of the PartySpotter Icons (Default 18)

/pspot reset : reset all defaults, and anchor the map keys to the default map positions

thanks again for your fast reply

i have tested it again and again with only partyspotter and trinity2 installed (new interface folder and deleted wtf etc)
the error occur not every time and i mean the classbar of trinity (stancebar)
but when i change a litte here and there in trinity (not specifcs but change the look of the bar and move it) the error comes up

its not the class buttons in the scoreboard that a mean
i mean the real classbar of my warror where i change my stances
when you move it to a point where the scoreboard appears when you click the minimapbutton and you hover over the classbar (that you can not see at the moment but you know where it is) the error occurs

the highlight class feature works great for me

thanks for your hard work with your addons an i hope you will become an account in the next time

mfg rza

ps: sorry for my bad english its not my native language

edit: ok one more time :-)
i have again installed the two addons and the only a did when i loged in, i joined an bg and moved the trinity classbar to the middle of the screen and clicked the bg button for the scoreboard an hoverd over the scoreboard where behind is tha classbar and the error occurs
i hope it help i litte bit

Sadly, I don't have a gaming account at the moment, so I can't do any more testing. But I definitely wasn't getting this error when I hovered over the Scoreboards Class buttons - it was working fine and all players of that class were correctly highlighted on the map.


I will publish a "fix" that will stop the error by just double checking its working with the correct kind of data - but probably PartySpotter's player class highlighting will not be working for you when hovering over the scoreboard class buttons (?)


Telic,

@rza

I think possibly you are blaming Trinity Bars for a problem it hasn't caused.
Do you play in BGs often ?
Perhaps you are only blaming Trinity because you only noticed the error in a BG after updating it.

It would be useful to know which AddOn is causing the problem - can you try disabling one of your other BG/PvP AddOns to see which one is the culprit ?

TrinityBars2

@rza

Hi,

I've installed TrinityBars2 20400.7 (and the other 3 AddOns included in the package from WoWInterface.com)

And obviously my PartySpotter is v5.07.20400, the same as yours.


I can't repeat your error.


I'm not familiar with Trinity at all, and there seem to be lots of options.
Are you using any specific BG / PvP Options ?


Your error sounds very strange. Can you try deleting your PartySpotter folder and re-installing ?

Trinity ?

Hi,

I'm willing to put a work around in PartySpotter, but I do NOT think it is a PartySpotter error - it sounds more like some 'Trinity' AddOn is changing the BG score board to hold non-standard information...?


Can you give me more details ?

Can you confirm the EXACT conditions for recreating the error ?
Its when you mouse over the BG score board frame in a BG, yes ?
Does this happen in PUG BGs, or only in pre-formed Raid BGs ?
Does it happen for all names on the scoreboard ? Or just names of your Faction ? Or the opposing Faction ? Or only people in your pre-formed Raid/Party ?

Telic,

MetaMap is out of date (?)

It does work with normal WorldMap and BattlefieldMinimap, or if modified by AlphaMap...not sure why MetaMap would stop the BFM working

Difficult for me to make it work with MetaMap, as MetaMap isn't working for me at all anyway.

Is someone updating it?

Changes in v5.06.20400 from v5.05.20400

- support for differently shaped minimaps
Automatically works with SimpleMinimap

As it works with SimpleMinimap automatically, and wouldn't change much in other circumstances, there is no GUI control of this option. However, it is possible to manually specify the Minimap style you want via the provided key binding to specify the style you want.
OR via the following slash command :

/pspot -m [#]

Where # is a number specifying the style of map you want to force PartySpotter to use.
Use the keybinding to cycle through the available styles to choose from, or just use "/pspot -m" on its own.
See the Readme.txt file for a list of styles.

Changes in v5.05.20400 from v5.03.20300

- will now "flash" map units to make them visible when mousing over player buttons on the Battleground score board frame

- if mousing over the Class symbols on the Battleground score board, then all players of that Class will be flash on the map

- if mousing over the Class symbols on the Battleground score board, then the tooltip will display how many players of that class are in the BG

- can now highlight players and track them from the Minimap by Alt-Left Clicking on players of your faction in the Battleground score board
Alt-Left click again to turn off highlighting of that player
Works in the same way as Alt-Clicking on Raid Frame players, or Alt-Clicking on Map Unit dots
Individual player highlighting like this can be turned off by Alt-Left Clicking on their Minimap Icon also

- fixed a problem prefixing chat messages with Raid Group Numbers if that option is enabled

- fixed a potential problem with colouring of Raid chat if that option is enabled

- toc update
