CCBreakWarner  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6

== CCBreakWarner 1.6 ==
by Wikwocket (wikwocket@gmail.com)

Note: This AddOn is not currently being updated. It should still work overall (probably until Cataclysm changes a lot of things). Unfortunately I have not been playing WoW as regularly and I do not have the time to update my AddOns. If you have any questions, please email me at wikwocket@gmail.com.

This AddOn alerts you when a mob you have CC'd (crowd controlled) breaks free. You will see a text warning and hear a sound effect whenever a CC spell you cast fades, is broken, or is dispelled off of a mob.

This AddOn support the following types of CC:
* Druid: Cyclone, Entangling Roots, Hibernate
* Hunter: Freezing Trap Effect, Scare Beast, Wyvern Sting
* Mage: Polymorph (and its variations)
* Paladin: Repentance, Turn Evil/Turn Undead
* Priest: Shackle Undead
* Rogue: Blind, Sap
* Shaman: Hex
* Warlock: Banish, Fear, Seduction

This AddOn will work in any language version of WoW. The warning texts are in English.

Since the 3.0.2 patch has hit, you will now be warned every time your CC spell fades or is broken, whether the target is focused or not. So focus macros, while still very handy, are no longer required to use this mod!

Here is a sample focus target CC macro:
/clearfocus [button:2]
/stopmacro [button:2]
/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/cast [target=focus] Polymorph
The first time you click this, the macro will make your current target your focus and polymorph them. Each following time, it will re-polymorph your focus target regardless of what your current target is. It will also clear your focus if you right-click the macro, or your focus is dead. (You can replace Polymorph in the macro with any CC spell).

No configuration is necessary; each time a CC spell you cast drops from a mob, you'll be alerted.

I hope you find this mod useful. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome!

=== Version history: ===

CCBreakWarner 1.6 (WoW 3.0.2):
* Added support for Shaman's Hex, Hunter's Scare Beast and Wyvern Sting, Paladin's Repentance and Turn Evil/Turn Undead, and Rogue's Blind.
* Removed old pre-3.0 code and documentation.

CCBreakWarner 1.5 (WoW 2.4.3):
* Enhanced mod due to upcoming 3.0 patch's new combat log events:
** In 3.0, CC breaks will be reported from all targets, not just your focus target. Whenever your sheep/shackle/sap breaks, you will get a warning, with no need to use a focus target!
** In 3.0, the mod also displays the name of the unit broken from CC.
** Until 3.0 is live, the mod will continue to work as-is, via focus targets.
* Updated localization code to use GetSpellInfo(). This should allow the mod to work in all locales without further translation!

CCBreakWarner 1.4 (WoW 2.3.3):
* Updated check for Warlock's Seduction spell to happen whenever the Succubus stops channeling. This means that you will get a warning whenever Seduction breaks, even if you do not use a focus macro for Seducing. You can therefore use a focus macro for Fear or Banish, and get warnings when it breaks, as well as when Seduction breaks.

CCBreakWarner 1.3 (WoW 2.1.1):
* Updated code to not warn of broken CC if you just change from one CC spell to another, for example via a random Polymorph macro. (Suggested by Belleboom at curse-gaming.com)

CCBreakWarner 1.2 (WoW 2.1.1):
* Added support for Cyclone and Entangling Roots for Druids.

CCBreakWarner 1.1 (WoW 2.1.1):
* Localized CC spell names for French and German WoW. Please let me know if there are any problems.

CCBreakWarner 1.0 (WoW 2.1.0):
* Initial release.
CCBreakWarner 1.6 (WoW 3.0.2):
* Added support for Shaman's Hex, Hunter's Scare Beast and Wyvern Sting, Paladin's Repentance and Turn Evil/Turn Undead, and Rogue's Blind.
* Removed old pre-3.0 code and documentation.

I wanted to post here that CCBreakWarner is not currently being updated. It should still work overall (probably until Cataclysm changes a lot of things). Unfortunately I have not been playing WoW as regularly and I do not have the time to update my AddOns.

Thank you to everyone who reads or posts in these comments threads, especially to those who have submitted feature ideas and bug fixes. You're the reason the WoW community is so great!

This addon is great. Would it be possible to prevent it from going off if I break the sheep myself, or to have that as an option?

The mod should work in 2.3. I prefer not to release new packages that just consist of updating the TOC number. If there are any problems with the mod in 2.3, please let me know and I'll look into them. Thanks!

After WoW patch 2.2.2, sound appears to be working natively again. If it does not work for you, please try the fix below.

Yes, the sound file does not always play since 2.2, this is a Blizzard problem that affects many addons.

Here is a temporary workaround that has been reported to work, but I haven't been able to test it myself:

Open the file CCBreakWarner.lua in a text editor (Notepad is fine)
- Go to line 95 (second to last line)
- Before the line "PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Doodad\\CollectorTubeShutdown.wav");", add the line "PlaySound("igMiniMapZoomIn");"
- After this, the end of the file should look like:
Code:
function CCBreakWarnerNotify(TextMessage)
	Print(TextMessage);
	if (UIErrorsFrame) then
		UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage(TextMessage, 1, 1, 0, 1.0, UIERRORS_HOLD_TIME);
	end
	PlaySound("igMiniMapZoomIn");
	PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Doodad\\CollectorTubeShutdown.wav");
end
- Save the file and reload your UI, and it should work.

Thanks for the last reply, I never came back to tell you thanks BUT HOWEVER... since the new patch, there is no longer a sound file when the CC breaks. Does this have something to do with the fact that Blizz has messed with the sound related things to help support their chat system?? Thanks for the help

You can easily change the sound to whatever you like, with a little editing. Belleboom posted a few comments on how to do this on the AddOn's curse-gaming page.

Is it possible to change the

I was wondering if it is possible to change the break sound. Sometimes in the raids, I have my ear trained on voices in vent and it is hard to hear the break sound. Can I change this?? Thanks for your help

Re: Re: Request: Breaking Soon Message

That's why I said it was a tangent. I was wondering if there was a way to identify the raid icon in use on your focus target so you could announce it to other people. Obviously you could just assign one on purpose and announce it, but very often things don't happen the way you plan and you find yourself controlling a different target than you expected. As a rule, I find it bad form to change the raid icons in the middle of a fight.

Anyway, if you're avoiding warning broadcasts via chat, there's no point in looking into that.

Re: Request: Breaking Soon Message

Well, the main purpose of the mod is to alert you, the CC caster, than your CC has broken, so your attention can be elsewhere instead of babysitting your mob.

Given how many great timer mods there are that can show you the time left on a CC, I will probably not add that feature. For example Natur's Enemy Cast Bars will show me the expected duration of all CC spells cast by party members.

I am hesitant to add an announce feature to this mod since it can be spammy if the CC keeps breaking, and again, the primary goal is to alert oneself. I do realize that Sap is unique, I may have to think about that.

Regarding raid targets, you can add lines to your macro:
/script SetRaidTargetIcon("target", 4);
/say Casting my CC spell on green triangle!
(you can use one through 8)

It would be very cool to have the option to tell your party or raid that "Sap on <focus target's name> is breaking in X seconds." where X is configurable or just a static number like 5 or 10.

Now off on a tangent. Is it possible to get the raid icon assigned to the focus target? Reporting that in text could also be useful. "<CC> on <COLOR SHAPE> broke! Pick it up!"

Request: Breaking Soon Message

Sorry if any of this is already covered, but I haven't had the time or opportunity to try out the addon just yet.

Sap cannot be reapplied and it is more useful for the tank to know when it is going to break rather than when it is broken. It would be very cool to have the option to tell your party or raid that "Sap on <focus target's name> is breaking in X seconds." where X is configurable or just a static number like 5 or 10.

Now off on a tangent. Is it possible to get the raid icon assigned to the focus target? Reporting that in text could also be useful. "<CC> on <COLOR SHAPE> broke! Pick it up!"

To give more information about this, someone posted on the curse page, that you can do this by macro, for example:

/cast Polymorph
/run for i=1,GetNumRaidMembers()-1 do local u,t="raid"..i,"target"if UnitIsUnit(u..t,t)then SendChatMessage("Change targets! Trying to sheep...","WHISPER",nil,UnitName(u)) end end

So a macro may be useful if you desire this functionality.

You are correct that I am scanning the buffs to determine when CC breaks, snice it is the only reliable way to detect some CC types breaking. I will look at this, maybe I could add the option just for seduce since it is a unique CC type. Do you know if the Succubus loses/changes her target if seduce times out, or is broken, or she is hit with an attack?
