BigWigs Bossmods  Updated this week!  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.

Feature request: I don't suppose its at all possible to save layouts depending on party/raid size.

I have different raid layouts for 10man and 25man, would just be easy if i could have say emphasized text in different positions depending on party size.

i am having a problem with the bigwigs timer.

I tried moving the timer bar using config to the place i want. but when the fight starts, it goes back to the orginal (not the position) i moved too earlier.

deleted all the bigwigs folder under the addon folder, did a fresh install but it's still not working.

may i know what happen?

Anchors

Hi there,

I'm trying to write a minimod that dynamically moves the BigWigs Emphasize Bars depending on my raidlayout. Basically, I am trying to anchor the Emphasize Bars to my oUF raidframes. However, despite looking at the code, I just can't find an anchor other than the temporaty ones through the config menu. Could one of the authors shed some light on how BigWigs handles anchoring please?

Have a nice Day,

Lysiander

Repeating

Hello, I recently switched to BW and they've been great so far except for one thing. On some encounters, most recently on Tsulong, I'm getting repeating BigWigs: Alarm sound which, as you can imagine, is very annoying. I'm really new to BW, so I really dont know my way around the settings yet, so please if someone knows how to fix this I would be graceful.

Also, that sound seemed to have paused on Tsulong as soon as he cast his "The Day" ability.

Thanks in advance guys!

Re: Repeating

Sounds like you're experiencing the proximity "too close" sound. Clicking on the speaker icon on proximity mutes it.

Bars not showing in Bigwigs

Hey guys

Firstly I just wanted to say that Big Wigs is awesome, and keep up the awesome work!

my problem is that quite often recently my BigWigs bars will not show on boss encounters, I still receive all the messages and emphasised messages but no bars are showing. It is worth noting however I still receive DMB pull timers, only the Encounter bars fail to load on the pull.

I can /reload ui in the middle of combat and they load and work fine, but this disables my grid which being a MS healer, is not an option.

Any ideas what I can do to solve the problem? Really dont want to revert to DBM :S

Please and Thank you

Em

Re: Bars not showing in Bigwigs

It would be useful if you enabled Lua errors in the "Help" section of the Interface Options, then type /reload and enable BigWigs, to see if any errors are appearing. Also, double check you're using the latest version of BigWigs by erasing all BigWigs folders in your AddOns folder, then installing.

People have experienced this in the past when using broken BigWigs bar skinning mods. If you get no errors, I suggest you reset to the default skin and see if that works for you.

Re: Re: Bars not showing in Bigwigs

Thanks for the Swift Response.

I have Enabled LUA errors, only got one around camera slider bar (not relevant)
I always have the most up to date version of BigWigs as i load the Curse Client and update before each log in.
I have deleted all Big Wigs Files and reinstalled
By "Skins" are you referring to the texture (Smooth, Flat, Blizzard.etc) of the bar or the style? (!beautycase or TukUI)

I will report back with my findings! should i receive a LUA error i will share it with you.

Thanks again ^^

I don't think that's related to missing bars, that error would break everything. You probably joined an LFR whilst you were in combat, or whilst the LFR was in combat. Also by skins I mean actual bar skins, not just textures. Some people use 3rd party addons or UI packs to skin their bars.

I joined fresh when there was no combat, and this happens when I first enter raids too.

In this particular situation it did break everything (no bars no messages) but im not sure why :S I dont have skinning addons. Is there a way for me to identify the cause easily?

Also it was working perfectly fine at the start of the expansion, and i haven't changed my UI at all :S
Sooo frustrating as i love BW

Please and Thanks
Em

Emerkai, the restricted environment only runs in combat. As such, you'll only ever see "script too long" errors in combat, no matter what addon. This is a new MoP WoW "feature" they added. If something takes too long to run (in this case BigWigs loading the extra BigWigs addons) it errors. Unfortunately it's perfectly normal for large Load-On-Demand addons to take a second to load, which is unfriendly with this new system. Are you sure you weren't in combat when you actually clicked the join button?

100% Certain, When we DBM pull bosses in my 10 man raid team (Out of combat) BW still "sometimes" fails to load. However ill try best to use your information to see if i can pin point the source of the problem

Apologies if I am accidentally persistent, I shall collate more information over a greater space of time and shall post again after next weeks lockouts.

So happy with our 4/6 HoF Progression!!!! Got my BiS Shoulders today!

Thank you for you time
