Quartz - Modular Casting Bar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.4
by: Nymbia, Nevcairiel
Quartz is a modular approach to a casting bar addon. An overview of (hopefully most of) the modules:

*Player
The core of Quartz is lightweight implementation of a standard casting bar, with configurable size, text and icon positioning, and colors.
*Target/Focus
Implementation of target and focus casting bars in similar fashion to the player cast bar.
*Buffs
Display of target and focus buffs and debuffs as duration bars using the new API introduced in patch 2.1.
*Flight
Hooks into FlightMap or InFlight to display the current flight progress on your casting bar.
*Global Cooldown
Displays a tiny spark-bar to show your Global Cooldown near the cast bar. Helpful for those who'd rather not squint at their action bars to see when they can cast again.
*Interrupt
Changes the color and text of your casting bar to help show that your cast has been interrupted (and show who interrupted it).
*Latency
Displays the amount of time spent between cast send and start events, in the form of a bar at the end of your casting bar, with optional text that displays the actual duration of the lag. This helps in canceling casts when they will not actually be interrupted, especially for users with consistently high pings.
*Mirror
Shows the 'basic' timers such as breath and feign death, as well as some 'odd' ones such as party invite time, resurrect timeout, and arena game start, and a framework for injecting custom timers into the bars.
*Range
Recolors the casting bar when your cast target moves out of range mid-cast.
*Swing
Displays a swing timer for your melee weapon as well as hunter autoshot.
*Timer
Allows for creating custom timers displayed on the mirror bars.
*Tradeskill Merge
Merges multiple casts of the same tradeskill item into one big cast bar.


Use /quartz to bring up the configuration menu.
- Support for WoW 5.4
- Fixed a bug with the position of the channeld cast tick positions.

Can someone recommend which spells a Death Knight without any tracking profession spells should use for the global cooldown module? Since all of our normal spells are based around cooldowns, I'm not sure how this would be affected.

There's only one thing missing from this and that is putting a quest timer countdown into the mirror bars!

Then it'll be perfect!

Hmm I just returned to WoW since WotLK, and just get Quartz back yesterday.

When I was trying it out to see if it works, I seems to have the same problem about Focus.
I didn't notice errors, but the focus's bar just didn't show up, and the 15s mend pet on my target bar didn't disappear after it reaches 0s.

EDIT: Updated version @ ACE http://www.wowace.com/projects/quartz/
seems to work fine.


Btw, the pet bar is only showing what it casts such as Huddle from DK's ghoul but not buffs such as Horn of Winter, Rabid and Mend Pet. I would like to keep track of the buff it has especially for the Mend Pet so that I know when to renew it, can you please add the Buff bars to the pet cast bar please?

DOT bar size

I've tried almost all the options and I'm sure I'm missing but could someone help.

When I cast a DOT the countdown bar is very small and I would like it bigger so I can actually see it. Is there an option to resize it?

Thanks

Yes, it doesn't seem like much, but it doesn't save the field if you don't do that. This isn't a quartz only particularity, it's an ACE thing I think. So, click the field, type Find Minerals then hit return before clicking the next field.

It took me several tries myself before I figured this out. I think I had the same problem with Pitbull which is why i thought of this solution.

What I would like is for the "Focus" feature to not break. I don't know why, but even if I turn off the focus module, if I set focus I get an error and Quartz completely breaks.

EDIT: here is the error I get BTW.

Code:
Date: 2008-11-01 22:41:10
ID: 56
Error occured in: Global
Count: 1
Message: ..\AddOns\Quartz_Buff\Buff.lua line 372:
   attempt to compare number with string
Debug:

Even though the above error says "fishingbuddyfu" it's also saying groupfu, macaroonfu.

When I enter the game I receive the message:

Warning: You have no spell chosen for Quartz's Global Cooldown module. Please enter a spell name in the menu (/quartz, then click Global Cooldown). Note, it is recommended to use a spell that cannot have a cooldown other than the global cooldown and cannot be interrupted, such as Find Herbs

So I do /quartz and go to Global Cooldown. I type in primery spell: Find Minerals, and on backup spell: Devastate. Both abilities only have global cooldown. However when I quit the menu, and open it again, both camps are blank again. It's not saving the spells I introduce there.

Can anyone shed a light on this please?

I'm wondering that why the cast bar stop working everytime when I enter the game, and I have to open the quartz config frame, and edit the "cast bar", then it begin to working.
How to fix this bug?
