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.

Bar Borders

Hello,

Firstly can I say thank you for this addon. It's been very useful thus far and I would like to continue using it. I have recently overhauled my UI and am now very close to completion. Obviously I am running with a particular theme, in this case minimal. I am using pixel thin black borders around all bars. The bars themselves are set to about 30% opacity and then fill up black as the timer progresses, and use a Vistor 1 font. Every bar in my UI works this way, apart from my Bossmod timers.

I am aware that BigWigs allows bar styles, but I am unsure how they function or how you input your own. I have tried to use other addons such as !Beautycase to add borders for example, but it's unclear as to where I should imput the code to create bar borders using this addon.

So I suppose my question is, can I add my own themes and if so is it easy to do/understand. It's quite frustrating that the only two bosstimers out there have little to no customisation options, but are the most popular addons out there. DXE used to be my addon of choice but that was of course dropped. Please don't take this the wrong way. I am still hugely grateful for this addon and would be stuck without it. It nevertheless is a gripe of mine.

Thanks.

Much appreciated. I really should look harder.....Just to clarify I haven't come here straight away as a matter of course. I have spent some considerable time searching for info before asking for help, which makes me feel even stupider.

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?

Yes, using bar styles is currently the only way to customize bars in-depth such as borders.

I would love if you could give us some more ways to customize the bars in bigwigs, atm there's no borders, no bar spacing option and you can only change the size of the bars through scaling.
The scaling is good but there should be an option where you can change the size of the font because if you want small bars you can't see the text in the bars atm.
Cheers!

Adding these options to the GUI is not a high priority at the moment, but you can accomplish them by using Big Wigs bar styling addons or writing a bar styler yourself.

This should be fixed in the latest epgp.

Aisenfaire, you're using an old version. Please update and let me know if the issue still occurs.

Look at the Big Wigs skinning file in compilations like ShestakUI.

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.

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.
