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.

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.

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

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.)

I'm pretty sure I've seen people post similar skins before, no idea if there's one publicly available somewhere.

I can't seem to find this information on Google or the forums I've tried searching.

Does anyone know how to disable the giant flashing icon that happens in the center of the screen? I've tried looking for this on Google and in various forums but don't seem to be having any luck.

Re: I can't seem to find this information on Google or the forums I've tried searching.

I'm having a hard time thinking what exactly you could be talking about. We introduced a new pulse feature in BW v4 which sounds sort-of like what you're describing, but this is off by default and needs to be turned on per-ability.

A good way to check would be to spam the test bars a few times and see if it randomly appears in your screen when a test bar expires, then you're definitely describing the Pulse feature.

My apologies, this was due to a typo. We pushed another release with a fix.

Emphasize without bar

I can't seem to get any countdown warning while bar isn't ticked.

Kind of annoying to have multiple bars and you would need to figure out which one is the important one you need to notice 10 secs before and which ones you can just go with sound.

So funkydude told me that MonoUI used a BigWigs skin that matched what I needed and indeed, it does perfectly:
Just pointing it out here in case someone was looking for it as I did.

I have another question: it is possible to make the bars grow upwards, which is great. But is it possible to reverse the sorting, i.e. making the longest timers in the bottom and the shortest appears on the top?

Edit: I also followed the MmoC thread DBM vs BW, you might want to emphazise the very lower ressources consumption here, as it seemed to me a really strong 'hidden' feature of BW.

Help or request...

Love BigWigs overall, just one little niggly thing... Is it possible to left or right align the "Message" text? By default it's centred only. I've run through as many .lua files as I can find, but being a bit of a noob, wasn't able to locate it.

Not sure I'm even posting this in the right place!

But if anyone could help me just change the message alignment, I would be most grateful

Re: Big Wigs skin

That's not quite what I said. I said that BW now bundles a new bar style called "MonoUI". This style is in the latest release and is similar to the skin you were looking for. There is no need to actually go and download the Mono UI, though, it's built in already.
