Version: 4.3.11
by: alar [More]
Assistant for battlefields
Displays a small window with status information.


NOTE: In Alterac Valley, bosses' health depends on synchronization. If you are the only user of ABH in your BG you cant have any info other than what is already available to you, so only if you are really near to one of them (by near I mean just outside or inside the bunker) you can see the data changing even if you are not targeting the boss

Arathi Basin
Left clicking a base button asks for help, Right clicking inform that the base is now safe
Clicking on "Ally/Horde wins in .." line, announce it in chat
Same for the "We need .. bases to win"
Time left and bases needed will be meaningfull onoy when at least one base has been taken by horde or ally
Besides each contested nodes you will see the time left to cap.

Warsong Gulch
Shows 2 big button with carrier's names. Click to target, shift-click to announce.
Extending the window (click on the >> button) discovers some more button. They work with the left-click ask for help, right-click announce safe rule.

Alterac Valley
Objectives' names works with the left-click ask for help, right-click announce safe rule.
Besides each contested nodes you will see the time left to cap. Clicking on time will announce it in chat.

Common feature:
Extimated resurrection timer. I need some feedback on this one, cause it looks like the interval is not exactly 30 seconds.. or maybe some lag is involved.. I hadnt time to figure the right timer, so I use a 30 seconds cyclle starting from your first resurrection inside a BG


Planned feature:
Syncronization: make things so when you join a bg, you can get timers from other users of my mod. Basic code is already in, i just need to test it a bit more

Re: Still doesn't work

I had some issues with curseforge packager, it was not pulling all libraries as I supposed it to do. The right version is now on curse, I am uploding it here, too.

Still doesn't work

I have downloaded the last several versions of this mod from here & WOWUI & none work on W0W 3.0.2

I have deleted the old version & removed all of the config files from the Saved variables dirs for all toons & the main saved variables dir.

It does not show up in any BG & when i type /abh gui or any command, i jsut get the generic help error stating that is an invalid command.

AlarMod (as stated in its description) is no longer needed by AlarBgHelper nor by anyone of my addons.
Disable it or, better, totally remove it!

Well, not really a bug I just use the same code for all panels in my addon... but BG panels are not meant to be closed by the "X" button. You can disable them via gui on a more permanent basis

Not showing bar is done via minimizig the panel:
you click on the triangle near the "X" button and the panel shrink to an almost "header only" aspect.

for now i think ill go back to using deadlyboss mods-- but ill definatly keep an eye on the changelog for this mod, since it has some features i like (like autojoin)
DBM and ABH take 2 different approaches, beiign the second one tryng to be (or can be) the most unobstrusive it can,
With ABH you can
1) show the full panel with all name and timers
2) show timer bars (like those in DBM) only for "active" nodes
3) show both of them
4) show none (looks silly, but you still have some gains, i.e. the bg announce repeated in the error frame in the middle of your screen)

That said, I second a UI revamp but I am waiting for ACE3 to settle down a bit more pefore recoding things. ACE3 looks more lightweight than ACE2

Thank you for your interest

Disable fastjoin in general options via gui or try /abh toggle fastjoin
Disable autorelease (differente setting for each bg), i cant remember the command line command.. could be /abh toggle wsgautorelease
anyway, /abh gui will open a clear (ehough, I hope) gui. fiddel with it. There a lot of customizable things in ABH

If yes, it's under:

"Carrier notification"
Hope it helps

Another thing is the layout of the mod. It could be made more compact and a little more stylish.

All in all it's a great mod, but could use a little polishing.
/abh gui is yoir friend.
A lot of things can be tweaked there.

Layout: I agree. I am considering an interface rewrite, but alas, I am a programmer.. and I suck at designing interfaces
