BigTrouble  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.29444
by: Fleetfoot [More]
Description:
At this point you might be asking yourself what this could be, some kind of vague reference to the greatest movie ever, Big Trouble in Little China starring Kurt Russel, well yes.

But this is also a bar that shows AimedShot and AutoShot casting, isnt that neat.
This was partially inspired by the now defunct AimedShotBar and i want to take this moment to give a big thx to otravi_CastingBar, a large chunk of the bar code was loaned and tweaked for my evil purposes from it.

Noteworthy stuff:
This mod does rely on the Ace2 embedable framework. Ace2 is the next generation of the Ace line, and does not require an external Ace2 addon as a dependency.

Command List:
Now, i wanted to make this one both slice and dice but in the beginnning i settled for just one commandline options. Now tho there are a myriad of options to tweak the look of the bar.

/btrouble -- Gives you a list of available options.

2.0.21228:

2.0.21223:

* Added surface lib.

2.0.19134:

* Removed an unused lib, yay, go team less code.

2.0.19131:

* Should work peachy with the 2.0 patch, and only that patch, so if youre still on live, do not download this.
* Due to some changes in the database structure some of you're settings will be reset, i humbly apologize for this, but since i am an evil bastard it shouldn't have come as a surprise to ya ,)

Ive done my best to test this sucker, but as always theres bound the be bugs, so please test, break and report.

1.0.17372:

* Added Chinese locale.

1.0.16257:

* Fixed aimed shot for the german client, thanks to Verjugorm on wowace for getting my attention on the bug and helping me debug it. Im amazed that no one else has noticed it before since it basically renders the aimed shot time counter useless. Oh well, it should be good and fixed now.

1.0.15371:

* Fixed the german translation, and with fixed i mean used the english translation.
If we have a german speaking peep among the crowd please help with the translation.

1.0.15067:

* Fixed lock/unlock bar bug

1.0.14804:

There is a stupid oneline fuckup that affects locking and unlocking of the bar, it gives you an error but it can be safley ignored, i should have a fixed version out later

* Fixed some locale things
* There is now a toggle to turn of autoshot/aimedshot from showing as bar. Experimental and not 100% test so tread with caution. Report if youre having problems with it.


1.0.14791:

* Some minor tweaks and fixes
* Updated the included ace libs
* Added kOKR locale thx to damjau
* Options are now localizable thx to damjau
* Hopefully i didnt break anything, but as always if so you get to keep the pieces.

On that note, if someone wants to help localize the german options please have a look in BigTrouble-deDE.lua.


1.0.13538:

* Added option to set the delay of the aimed shot. To get the timming right for aimed shot there exists an artificial amount of time ive added to the shot time. In the past this was set to 0.35 sec, but ive now added a option to set this to youre desire, as long as youre desire is between 0 and 1 second. Note you cant set it to something like 0.356, its only accurate to 0.00 precision.

1.0.12300:

* Added some different textures for youre viewing pleasure.

1.0.10813:

* The options should once again work, DOOH.

1.0.10806:

For some reason the options in this version cant be set, so do not download it, ill have a fix up later

* Added a border option for youre viewing pleasure
* Worked on improving the logic in the code, hopefully its a bit clearer now.
* Again some minor optimizations, well atleast i hope they were.

1.0.8805:

Dont be confused by the fact that the minor version number is less than the previous release, i moved my development to the ace svn which made the revision numbers different.

* Added a german translation thx to tumetom. This one is drycoded and not tested, so if you see any problems with it please report it to me with the correct translation.
* Some minor fixes and micro opt. for youre enjoyment.
* Updated toc to new version

1.0.973-2:

* Actually uploaded the new zip now.

1.0.973:

* Rewrote a big chunk of the logic, go go team blizzard
* Some optimization, or so i would hope, all for youre viewing pleasure
* Added loads of cmdline options, now you can set width, height and fontsizes for the different elements, enjoy and make sure you thx otravi for the wonderfull code i sorta ripped.
* Well lets face it, i prolly added a bug or two, but it seems pretty solid during my testing, but as always, youre security is not guranteed.

Warning: This upgrade will reset youre bar pos

1.0.919:

* Switched to Gratuity for all my tooltip godness
* Some minor fixes
* Updated the included Ace2 libs to current svn version

1.0.887-2:

* Updated the included ace2 libs.

1.0.887:

* Changed the color of the AimedShot bar to make it easier to see when youre AutoShooting/AimedShooting.

Causes lots of strange issues with chatboxes too for some reason.

BigTrouble.lua:328: attempt to perform arithmetic on field `duration' (a nil value)
---

Experienced this bug when I cast Aimed Shot on a critter. The Aimed Shot castbar didn't appear.
Hmmm, does a AimedShot always produce this error and are you using another client than the english one. Also did you pop rapid fire or berserk while you saw this error.


Also, you know what would be an amazing feature? An Autoshot count display, reset by Multishot.

That way, after Multishot, there would be a number popping up as follows:

Aimed Shot
Multi Shot
Autoshot (a number X appears somewhere on/around the bar)
Autoshot (a number X+1 appears somewhere on/around the bar)

Everytime you fire MultiShot the counter resets. This would help perfect the rotation for many Hunters. Its like combo points, but for Hunters!

Any thoughts?
Nice, personally im counting seconds for the cycle, but i can see how this would be usefull. I'll add this to the idea list for the next version, which will come after i have ironed out the bugs in this version

The people getting the error are using a newer version of AceConsole-2.0.lua, so you need to update BigTrouble to fix it. Disabled all other Ace2 addons and the error went away.

Also, think you could add BigTrouble to the ace svn?
Hmm, yeah sounds about right, i always use the trunk version so my ace2 libs are always uptodate locally, anyho, its been updated now.

And yeah, ill see about moving it to the ace svn.

Weird, i cant replicate it here, and i cant really see why youre getting that error, could you try and disable all youre other addons and try unlocking and locking with just BigTrouble active.

*EDIT*: I just saw, do you have a addon called ChatFrame because that seems to be what generates the error, try just disabling that first and check again.

Resize: Yeah, ill prolly make something like that, it isnt to hard and you can do it manually now by modifying the width constant in the lua file.

@Jayblah: Jikes i havent seen that error before, when did you see it?

And yeah, different colors for the aimed and autoshot is a good idea, ill put that in in the next rc

Some requests beyond just bugfixes above:

Please color the Aimed Shot barcolor different from Autoshot to further make it easier to distinguish.
