ControlFreak  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.0.3.15-Releas
by: Tekkub [More]
ControlFreak is a small crowd control assist addon. It provides a small frame for fast click-casting of CC spells onto the player's focus target. It also provides visual cues of the focus's status and audio cues of CC breaks.

ControlFreak is designed to be an "install and go" addon for all classes with sustainable CC spells, but it also provides direct access to edit the macro used by the frame for players that want to extend it's functionality.

For users who want a macro instead of clicking on the frame, put this code into a new macro and drop it in your actionbar:
/click ControlFreakFrame

Understandable. Looking at the posts there's still some of us that use it. I particularly find it a life saver while questing.

The addon is not dead, but I honestly am not sure how to update it (if it's even needed). CC's seem to have fallen out play a good deal since the days when I wrote this, and I rarely do group runs or raids, so I can't really update the addon to fit my own needs.

Do you use custom macros at all?
I have a macro that does a /click ControlFreakFrame and that's it.


Do you ever use profiles?
No. I find the notion rather un-simple.

Do you ever use any of the display options?
No. I actually forgot that it had any at all until you mentioned it.

The idea of there being a clickable frame at all is actually pretty laughable. A macro dropped onto an existing bar or hotkeyed will do the job just fine.

--

All I want in a CC addon is to be able to make multiple macros, each one responsible for a different cc ability. That addon does all of the focus magic.

I suppose some people would want to be able to use one macro which can have different modifiers to use the different sorts of CC.. I don't care so much for that.

Perhaps a spinoff addon could do something more trivial like:

/click ControlFreakFrame <spellname>
I suppose if I cared enough I could just make a bunch of simple focus-cc macros like back in the olden days.

I'm debating making some simplifying design changes to CF here, would like feedback from ya'all.

So, here's the questions...

Do you use custom macros at all? If you do, what are they specifically? What don't you like about the macros I provide (aside from the fact they only support a single spell/family each.

Do you ever use profiles (besides picking a spell within your class). What for?

Do you ever use any of the display options (scale, compact mode, etc) or do you simply use the default look?

two Copies?

I think for more than 2 forms of CC the problem is focus.
The addon would probably have to store the name of the mob and then flip the focus back and forth between the two CC mobs.

I've done quite a bit of dummy-testing with my affliction lock. Succubus is doing more DPS than Felhunter.

hi tekkub, is there any way to get two control freak frames displayed at once? perhaps one for banish and one for seduce, for that pesky faction champs encounter.
