BigWigs Bossmods  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r12995
by: funkydude [More]

Big Wigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter. These encounter scripts are activated when you target or mouse over a raid boss, or if any other Big Wigs user in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time.

If you're looking for boss encounter scripts for 5-man dungeons, these are not in Big Wigs, but live in their own add-on; Little Wigs.

Still using 10689. I'm guessing it's something with bigwigs and world bosses. Cause I get a similar error on Nalak today.

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\BigWigs_Core\BossPrototype.lua:723: Module BigWigs_Bosses_Nalak does not have a .db property, which is weird.

This one showed up today in 10689.

v4.1 (r10633)
Added a dual spec, auto profile-swapping feature.
Added a bunch of off-by-default auto marking into boss modules that were previously separate addons e.g. Tortos, Lei Shi
Added an "Align" option for the BW message frame.
Added a new bar style, "MonoUI".
Added ability to temp-emphasize test & custom bars.
Added player count to proximity.

Fixed a rare error when registering a bar style.
Fixed emphasize not counting down when bars are disabled for that option.
Fixed a rare error when disabling a boss ability.
Fixed a ton of profile swapping bugs.
Fixed a display bug where boss sound options wouldn't display global sound options.

Various module improvements.

Not without editing the lua file, sorry.

And thankyou! That's what I call swift and efficient service. I also noticed the Mono UI option and love it.

Thanks again

Re: Big Wigs skin

That's not quite what I said. I said that BW now bundles a new bar style called "MonoUI". This style is in the latest release and is similar to the skin you were looking for. There is no need to actually go and download the Mono UI, though, it's built in already.

Just pointing it out here in case someone was looking for it as I did.

Not sure I'm even posting this in the right place!

But if anyone could help me just change the message alignment, I would be most grateful

(https://www.virustotal.com/fr/file/7...is/1358023977/)
(Original file can be found on an popular yet borderline forum, hence the absence of source; easy to find through Google though.)

I have another question: it is possible to make the bars grow upwards, which is great. But is it possible to reverse the sorting, i.e. making the longest timers in the bottom and the shortest appears on the top?

Edit: I also followed the MmoC thread DBM vs BW, you might want to emphazise the very lower ressources consumption here, as it seemed to me a really strong 'hidden' feature of BW.

Re: Emphasize without bar

Thanks, will be fixed in the next release.

Kind of annoying to have multiple bars and you would need to figure out which one is the important one you need to notice 10 secs before and which ones you can just go with sound.

My apologies, this was due to a typo. We pushed another release with a fix.
