BigWigs Bossmods  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r12212
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.

Any good soul to make a BW version of this DBM reskin?



The skin (it takes form of an addon, which is an incredible comfort gain compared to having to copypaste the template file every update) can be downloaded at: http://www.mediafire.com/?41q99iz3eom4aen

(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.)

Big Wigs v4 released

New features:
  • Pulse: Off by default. Any ability that has the "Flash" option will now have the "Pulse" option, a new feature for attracting attention.
  • Statistics: On by default. Records boss wipe/kill durations and the total amount of kills/wipes. Viewable on the individual boss panels.
  • "Only on me": Off by default. This feature is a sub-option of boss abilities that allows you to restrict messages. E.g. "Bomb: Player" will only be shown when on you.
  • Boss abilities that are restricted by role (tank/healer) are simplified, each ability has a option e.g. "Tank alert only" that can be disabled to be viewed regardless of role. In addition, a dispel role has been added.
  • Every boss ability now has customizable sounds
Bars:
  • Previously cooldown/approximate abilities were represented with a tilde "~" in the name, the tilde is now next to the countdown (which makes more sense)
  • Add font size slider
  • Performance improvements for drawing bars, cuts CPU usage by half
Misc:
  • Config panels are now separated by expansion, current expansion is colored to stick out
  • Fix issues when soloing bosses (no boss kill, etc)
  • Improvements to disabling/enabling of Big Wigs
Thone of Thunder:
  • Added modules for this new 5.2 zone
Hear of Fear/Endless Spring/Mogushan Vaults:
  • Hundreds of module improvements, can't list them all
Developers:
  • Re-wrote most API calls for simplicity
  • Re-wrote the combat log arg system
  • New API calls include StackMessage, RangeMessage, CDBar, TargetBar, Me, MobId, Range
  • Added callbacks for boss win, wipe, and engage
  • EJ flags are now represented with negative numeric values rather than strings
  • Modules can now have custom options by using the locale entries custom_on_myopion or custom_off_myoption

Vode, is this something you'd in mind? This is Tukui_BigWigs skin by Affli@RU-Howling Fjord.
Without trouble, I managed to achieve the above style, with only few changes made within the code.

I'm having this same issue where I can't figure out a way to change the way BigWigs looks. If I could just change the border color it would make a massive difference. I know for you this all must seem insanely easy, but for the laymen it's a bunch of gobbledygook.

Big Wigs v3.9

Big Wigs 9784 has been released (known internally as v3.9) which is a major (and recommended) update, some changes include:
  • Core [Events]: Improved the event and callback system for better CPU performance.
  • Core [Scheduler]: Re-wrote the timing/scheduling system for better CPU performance.
  • Core [Pull Timer]: Added new "pull" functionality: e.g. /pull 10 will start a 10 second pull bar.
  • Core [Main config]: Cleaned up the main config display and "configure" display a little.
  • Plugin [BossBlock]: Previously this plugin would only stop messages from appearing in the middle of your screen, but the "raid warning" sounds would still play which was confusing. It now properly prevents the sounds from playing.
  • Plugin [Emphasize]: Now has various customization options (font,etc), countdown has been separated to a different anchor.
  • Bosses [Pandaria]: Added modules for world bosses.
  • Various bugfixes and improvements across the core and boss modules.

DBM Related:
  • Core [DBM Faking]: Big Wigs now has a (disabled by default) feature to fake a DBM version check. This will make people think you're using DBM, which is useful for guilds that force DBM on their raiders.
  • Core [DBM Timer grabbing]: Big Wigs now has a (disabled by default) feature to grab any custom timers or pull timers sent by DBM users in your raid, and display them in Big Wigs.
  • Core [Custom Timers]: Custom timers and pull timers sent by Big Wigs will now be visible by DBM users in your raid, useful for raid leaders that want everyone to see their timers.

This should be fixed in the latest epgp.

So correct me if I'm wrong. There is no simple border option for BigWigs bars and if I want to add one I'm going to have to code it/learn to code it?
