AlarBGHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

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

2.5.5

I downloaded the latest version today and the timers do not show in AV. This is the only BG I have tried it in.

Ideas for that one?
It didnt happen to me... if you canc onfirm you are using the last version of AlarBGHelper and the Alarmo library wich come with it (alarbghelper 2.5.2, alarmod 2.1.3). I'll investigate further.
Had not so much time to play cause my game pc started crashing.. but I'll do what I can

Should have been fixed in 2.5.0a (toc shows 2.5.0)
Anyway, if you dont want download it again, you can just
open AlarModTemplates.lua with notepad (it's in wow directory under Interface\Addons\AlarMod)

go to line 48
change AMO_forms in AMO_Forms (Yes, it' just a matter of lowercase and uppercas... a stuopid typo)

Well, the most important thing is you are not experiencing lockups. For the other thinhs, they are all features i didnt retest too much deeply so I could have introduced some bugs there,.
I'll nuke them asap

I hope to upload 2.4.5 with an improved library quite soon.Then yoiu can check if this last version stil locks you.
I grinded all my way up to Commander in the old days using AlarBGHelper and I never experienced locking up, but maybe it's a bug I introduced with the last version otr due to WOW 2.0 incompatiblity
I shall give it another go then. Downloading the latest version.

let me know if you find anything.

I found (and fixed it). The bug was inside the library, so you could want to download the last version from wow.aspide.it .
I am about to release AlarBGHelper 2.4.5, with all these bugfixes and some new featrure:
shrinked AV window
auto turnin for AV quests
and maybe something more

If it is a localization problem I would volunteer in helping to translate the texts!
We can definitely work on it
I think I can cope with the "special german characters".
My suggestion: send me a private message with your email address, so I can send you an experimental localized version.
I think you found most of the strings needing localization but maybe we need some more. I will work on them asap
