LittleTrouble  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0-66863.14
by: Fleetfoot [More]
Description:
Have you ever wondered what exactly youre AutoShot is doing, i mean, youre paying good money for it, but really, how do you know youre getting youre moneys worth from it.
Well worry no longer, fleetfoot industries gives you LittleTrouble, the younger, more handsome brother to BigTrouble.
Through pixel magic this will give you a castbar for youre AutoShot.

Why:
I can already hear the question in the air, why would i make this since BigTrouble has this and more. Well with the advent of the new event system in 2.0 both Aimed Shot and Steady Shot was registring with blizz default castbar aswell as every other castbar out there. So after much pondering how i would move forward with BigTrouble i decided the best thing was to create this thing as a AutoShot only addon. This will give you the viewer the choise of using whichever castbar you desire for aimed shot and steady shot. This feels like the better solution rather than trying to shoehorn steadyshot into BigTrouble. This also made it possible to clean up alot of fuzzy logic that i had to use for Aimed Shot. The result is a new, more sparkly autoshot addon with lots of customization on the looks of it, you can even now change the color of the bar

And yes, i know zhunter also provides a AutoShot bar, but there's always room for one more, especially if youre like me and dont use zhunter.

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.

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

I haven't noticed those issues. I'll try a few macros with the /stopcasting command, but Auto Shot should not respond to that command since it is not considered a casting action. My Hunter doesn't have the Aimed Shot talent, but next time a PTR is made available I'll copy over the Hunter and test it.

It's possible some other addon you have is interfering with LittleTrouble.

Hoping for a 3.0.2 update, I'm having the issue that was reported with eCastingBar which was fixed in the latest 3.0.3 release: fixed an issue with the castbar sometimes disappearing mid-cast. That's happening with LittleTrouble as well.

Update coming for the 3.02 patch?

LittleTrouble is absolutely the best Auto Shot timer I have tried. I've been using it for many months now. Thank you for your great work!

I hope you'll be releasing an update for the 3.02 patch, currently on the PTR and coming to the retail servers within a few weeks. There are significant changes to how Steady Shot interacts with Auto Shot, so even if the current version of LittleTrouble functions it most likely won't show accurate information without some changes.

Thanks again!


Edit: I tested this on the 3.02 PTR and it seems to be working properly. It's hard to tell for sure, though, since so many things changed (Steady Shot cast time doesn't interfere with Auto Shot casting, for instance). I'm curious how LittleTrouble works - does it make a "guess" about what your Auto Shot is currently doing based on Combat Log events, or does it have some direct hook into the progress of Auto Shot casting?

hey, first of all sorry for the late reply, tbh ive been busy with alot of other things and my addons development have been on a bit of a hiatus. Ive never seen the problem you are experiencing so im not sure how to fix it. But in the midst of recoding the whole ui code atm so hopefully this wll sort out youre problem also. Ill post a beta here as soon as i have anything.

The cast bar is laggy. It starts and finishes on time, but the progress of the bar is 'chunky' and not a smooth progression. IE the bar jumps 20% at a time and makes it look clunky. Sorry I can't describe the problem without using made up words.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere before so I'm not sure if this problem is unique to me or not. It may be due to some library I have thats outdated somewhere.

Is there any way to fix this?

Hello. I have been using BigTrouble for a long time. I do not use it for any of other shots except for Auto Shot, but BigTrouble has the 'delay' time feature and LittleTrouble doesn't. Is there any plan on adding to this LittleTrouble? I can't for the life of me figure out why isn't.

It happens occasionaly, like every 2 days maybe? I think it's mostly happening when I log in. Like it doesn't remember its saved position or something. But that's only sometimes, it doesn't do it regularly. It seems totally random, I can't trigger it. Same with /ltrouble, sometimes it works, sometimes it won't until a relog.

Is anyone else experiencing this?
Also, /ltrouble to get to the options doesn't always work, sometimes I have to relog to make the command work...
Hmm okay, i havent seen those problems myself and im not sure what the problem could be.
How often does it happen and can you trigger it on will or is it more like a random act?

Moving the bar

Is there a way to move the bar? Im not seeing any options for it.
It is hard to see took me a few trys to find it.
When you type /ltrouble and the window pops up between "Font" and "Texture" is a little check box with "Lock" next to it. Uncheck it and move the bar, recheck it and go kill stuff.

ps thanks for the mod it was just what I was looking for
