BigWigs Bossmods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11776
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.

Downgrading the AceOO is just going to cause you trouble in the future. Ckknight updated FuBar2 which should stomp out the errors you were getting (The fixed AceOO should be in there as well.)

Hmmm, time to bug Kaelton about updateing the stand-alone Ace2 distro on here. :P

Erm actually I found I had to do it the other way around.

E.g. as a temporary workaround, copy the AceOO-2.0.lua file of your OLDEST Ace2 addon into the relevant directory (usually libs\AceOO-2.0) of your other Ace2 addons. Doing this I've managed to get the following Ace2 addons to "play nice" together:

BigWigs
FuBar
FuBar-VolumeFu
Tinytip
XRaidStatus

Note: I copied the file from FuBar into the other addon directories. as for which is the oldest just open the file and look at its version.

Ok, so if they're all labelled ace-2.0.0, how do we determine which is the most up-to-date one that all of them will play well with?

There was a small bug that cropped up with Ace2 and has since been fixed. Bugs like this should be very very uncommon, so don't freak out . Generally the version checking and replaceing will sqaush things like this, but Ace2 is still relatively new and one sqeaked past us.

The solution is exactly what was Istu suggested. Simply take the Ace2 librarys from the newest Ace2 mod you have, and place them into your other Ace2 mods (overwrite the older revision of Ace2). Again don't freak out, this shouldn't happen very often (if ever) so make due for now Ace2 is still somewhat in it's infancy in relation to a mass rollout and distrubution with various mods, and things like this hopefully shouldn't crop up often, if ever again.

I think you need to make sure all addons that are using Ace2 are using the same version. I had the same error with BigWigs, copied the FuBar\Libs\AceOO-2.0 directory (which I had copied from MobHealth3 after FuBar2 had a similar problem!) over top and problem fixed.

Not very scientific but it works for me!

--------------------------------------------------

Any advice?

New Version Breaks ACE2 Addons

Updated BigWigs today, Fubar 2, and OneBag both stopped working.
A huge error for Fubar came up on loading.

The error is being discussed on the Fubar page.
Reverted back to the previous version of BigWigs and problem went away.

Remove BigWigs_RaidWarn

Since BigWigs_RaidWarn is included in BigWigs now can we remove it from WoWi? My guildies keep trying to install it. :P

It uses FuBarPlugin-2.0, so you're going to have to update to FuBar 2.0 or have a minimap button. If you're haveing issues with FuBar you should report it on ck's portal or on flyspray.

Also, I've noticed that I no longer get a very useful warning in the c'thun fight. It used to give me a warning that said *exactly* which group was about to be red beamed. Now it just gives some sort of general red beam phase warning. Was that functionality removed?

Report exactly which events/warnings/notices on which bosses you are missing when out of range in FlySpray. It's possible synchronization is not yet implemented for that warning for some reason, or there could be some other problem. Just a vague report that you're not getting warnings isn't very helpful.

It's impossible to disable the Minimap Icon of the Ace2 version of Bigwigs. It reappears after Reload UI. This may be related to a FuBar bug (I don't want it in the Fubar nor in the Minimap, command line is fine). I'm back to the Ace1 version.

First of all, let me say that BigWigs is awesome and I use it pretty much every day!

With that said, I've been having one problem ever since I started using it. The problem is that I miss a lot of events unless I'm in close range of the boss. And as a healer, that's not really an option.

I thought the sync feature would take care of this problem, but it doesn't seem to work properly. Our MT has BigWigs as well, and is using the feature to broadcast the events to RaidWarn so I can compare which events he gets and which I get. Stuff I often miss are things like Shadowflame, Nef's Fear, Chromaggus' breaths etc. The sync seems to be working properly though, as the the mods get turned on when someone else targets the boss etc.

Unfortunately this means I can't remove the "spam" from my MT since I will then miss valuable information as my own BigWigs won't warn me of some events. Hope you have an answer to my problems.

Edit: Ofc we have CTRaid running with sync channel properly configured etc.

I'm occasionally getting a "Debug mod enabled" suddenly happening and a couple bars show up on the screen. Is this something accidentally left in there?

Sync "just works". All users who have a mod that manages a CTRA channel will send/recv syncs. Come 1.12 there won't be the CTRA requirement.

Your /ra macro don't work, or you just don't see them? You're probably one of those spammy people that inspired me to write BigWigs and BossBlock in the first place, aren't you?

Click and drag, it's not that hard is it? I think it's alt-drag to detach it from the minimap.
