BigWigs Bossmods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11947
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.

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.

Minimap button

Perhaps I'm missing something, but is there any way to move the BigWigs minimap button other than by using a separate frame-modifier addon?

sync question

i was curious how exactly the sync feature worked.. do you need to have assist or leader in order to send sync messages to the assigned channel? and can you turn it off and on as you please?

btw Tekkub. love your mod by far. buhbye bossmods thats for sure. im trying to get the majority of people in my guild to get this so we can take advantage of the sync feature

if the maintank gets mind controlled by lucifron, both bigwigs and bigwigs_raidwarn stop working until wipe/engagement of another boss

Honestly from my experience, BigWigs is superior with efficieny with its 'module' turn on's. Bossmods announcements are always on, unlike BigWigs announcements where its only for that boss at that current time. As it is I would stick to CT_RA and BigWigs, but I personally like oRA(and its modules) + BigWigs + BigWigs Raidwarn, it gets the job done very well.

Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you for all the great work you have put into this mod, and for keeping it updated. I HIGHLY prefer this mod over CT_RA & Bossmods because less spam, and its way easier to keep track of events with the Timex bars. Please keep up the great work.

Same link I have in the description, clad finally got websvn back up is all

As for myAddons support, sorry but nope. Regardless of if Ace core supports it, the module design does not. It doesn't really matter though, as I'm working right now to convert BW over to Ace2. Once that's done myAddons won't bug you one bit.

Just tried this mod along with 3 guild mates on Chrom and Nef. We certainly preffered the timer bars over CT_BossMods approach.
