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.

Excellent mod.

Wish list:
* As Valgas said, a little ding just as the cast bar hits the latency zone.
* Option to show a user-defined latency marker on the cast bar. (Because some of us have constant high pings, so even when Quartz says 200ms I know it's at least 400ms, but that's hard to judge without some kind of indicator.)

I really like the looks of this mod, it seems much lighter than natur enemy castbar (necb) that im using atm, but its a bit complex tho.

As an average user with perhaps a bit above average insight to mods (in terms of setting them up and understanding what they are, not in coding) i think it is a bit complex tho.

So far i see settings for moving text and bar separately but i have yet seen where i find the option to actually move the bar. I feel this mod would beneit from a good tooltip addition explaining what each setting does. This is a bit of a shame really cause simplicity and usability should be very high up on the priority list on any mod you use.

I hope this will change soon cause i feel that a good mod is a shame to waste it because its hard to understand the settings in it.

I'm sure other hunters will agree with me when I say: please please please add the latency feature on the swing bar as well.

Making the GCD work better.

This is the list of spell names needed to make the GCD work without configuration. You only need to add a spell when a new class comes out.

Moonfire
Serpent Sting
Fireball
Holy Light
Smite
Sinister Strike
Lightning Bolt
Corruption
Battle Shout

As it is, I need to make a separate Quartz Ace2 profile for each class I play, and since I have 9 alts, that's kinda annoying.

Is there a way to fix this?
I am having this same problem - what addon are you using to load it?

Any place where there is a tutorial for this mod?

Cause i really like the overall look and feel for what it does, but i can't seem to configure it because its so complex.

And a little suggestion in case it isnt added (or i simply haven't found it) click and drag bars like those on natur enemy castbar for repositioning them, so much easier than working with coordinates

Directions?

Well, I see I'm not the only one who thinks this looks absolutely amazing but can't figure out how to configure it. To be quite honest, the menus are a bit obtuse. I'd like to be able to move the bars around, but I just can't seem to get it do what I want. Too bad, because this would replace 2 or 3 other mods I'm using.

Re: Directions?

I couldn't find a way to move the bar around either from the configuration panel. What I did instead was modify the setting directly in the code:

1. Open the file "...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Quartz\Player\Player.lua" in a text editor such as TextPad.
2. Go to line 176. You'll see "y = 180". Change 180 to whatever you like; I set mine to 250 in order to move the bar up a bit.
3. Save the file and reload the add-on.

Of course, this only works if you want to modify the position of the bar along the y-axis. To move it left or right... I suppose you could try adding "x = <whatever>" and see what that does. I'm too lazy to try :P.

Re: Re: Directions?

You can just drag the bar around to wherever you want really easy. Just go to the "Player" menu and untick "Lock". Drag it to where you want then re-tick "Lock".

Couple of requests for this awesome mod Nymbia.

1) Show player buffs with the castbar as with target and focus.

2) Show swing bars when dual wielding

Thanks.

Is this normal?

When using tradeskills, instead of the icon of whatever I'm making, it shows the face icon that is normally used for unknown actions (perhaps just on thottbot, unsure, but that's where I've seen it.)

Change Icons Next to Casting Bar

Sorry if I missed this in an earlier post, but I didn't seem to find one. Is there a way to customize the icon next to the spell cast bar? Like for example, I'd like to put some kind of cooking icon next to cast bar while cooking instead of the default one that looks like a Dark Rune.

*Edited*

I just noticed it occurred when I was making Sporeling Snacks, and other types of fish food, but is there a way to change the icons?
