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

Odd Behavior

Love this app! Used it extensively on trash mobs in Sunwell. Now want to use it for trash mobs (bombs & mechanicals) in Ulduar, but I'm having unexpected problems with it.

Clean install of ControlFreak-3.0.3.15 after Patach 3.1.1

Created "Druid - Entangling Roots" (ER) macro from the "Druid - Hibernate" macro and modified to read as follows:

/clearfocus [modifier:shift]
/stopmacro [modifier:shift]
/cast [target=focus,exists,nodead,harm] Entangling Roots
/stopmacro [target=focus,exists,nodead,harm]
/cast [combat,harm,exists,nodead] Entangling Roots
/focus [exists,harm,nodead] target
/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/stopmacro [button:1/3/4/5] [combat]
/freak

Setting Focus works fine and CF produces the Green Ready Icon.
Executing macro (clicking "Ready" icon) immediately changes the icon to an orange "Loose" Icon. Expected behavior is a yellow "Controlled"(?) icon.

As soon as Entangling Roots start to tick dmg, the Icon changes to a red "Damage" icon and is expected.

When ER times out and the mob is loose again there is no change to the red "Damage" icon. Expected behavior is the orange "Loose" icon.

When I recast ER there is no change to the red "Damage" icon.

I can understand that the behavior of Entangling Roots is odd in contrast to other CC abilities in that it ticks damage while CC'ing a mob. I can also cause rooted mob damage with Moonfire and Faery Fire without breaking root. Can CF be modified to ignore ER and druid DoT dmg and only shift to "Damage" mode when an actual root break/timeout occurs?

Is there a way to have clickable objects for both Root and Hibernate at the same time to avoid going into the UI config to swap?

Many thanks!

Polymorph Sheep/Penguin doesnt work

Hello first of all I must say I love this AddOn and Ive been using it for a very long time with my mage, but since WotLK Im having some problems.

Everytime I polymorph a mob I can clearly see there is some kind of lag with Control Freak, either using the button or the macro I had to push the button 2 or 3 times to make it work, it always seemed stuck, also it only polymorphed pig all the time... after investigating it a bit I discovered the AddOn worked fine again making the next changes to the macro:

Polymorph, Polymorph(Pig), Polymorph(Turtle)

I just deleted the spell ranks stuff and the stuck problem vanished, I only need to push once to make it work instantly.

But for some unknown reason it wont polymorph me sheep/penguin, only pig and turtle, also the lag/stuck problem comes back everytime I presume the addon tries to make a sheep/penguin, never with the pig/turtle.

I dont know if the problem is related to the minor glyph Polymorph Penguin, or any other thing, I have tried changing the macro again adding ranks and stuff to the basic polymorph but no luck, I just dont have a clue how to make it work completely well.

I would be very happy if somebody can help me solve this problem or have any clue.

Thanks.


EDIT:

Ok so finally after some more testing I made it work with Polymorph(Rank 4) and now all the polys work fine with no lag/stuck problems at all.

So what I did in the end was to rewrite the 2 macro lines where the Polymorph commands are with:

[...] Polymorph(Rank 4), Polymorph(Pig), Polymorph(Turtle) [...]


Since my knowledge about macros/addons is almost zero I dont know why Control Freak failed before with the original macro and why it works now, however I hope this testing will help others to solve where was the problem.

Thanks again.

I sorely miss the addon!
I tried reinstalling and disabling addons and reloading the UI and a bunch of stuff.
One time, in the past, the frame got dragged behind the buttons and I disabled the “top” bottom row of buttons and found it and moved it back up.
This time I did that and it wasn’t there. So, I have no clue what happened to it.
I cannot disable the very bottom row of buttons to see if it got stuck behind there but that is probably unlikely anyhow and you’d think I’d see at least part of it.
Is there anything else I can do to get it back? Any thoughts?
Thanks for your help!!!
Try deleting any ControlFreak.lua files in the WTF folder in wow.

new version not working

I really like this addon. I haven't sheeped with my mage for awhile but when I tried with the new version, it doesn't work. I can right click and get options and left click and get the ready but when it's in range and I click, nothing. unless they changed the script code again


edit: lol. it's Polymorph(Pig) now. works fine

Отредактируй ControlFreak\Locale.lua, чтобы выглядело вот так (в редакторе выстави кодировку UTF-8):
Code:
if loc == "deDE" then localized = {
	Beast = "Wildtier",
	Demon = "Dämon",
	Elemental = "Elementar",
	Dragonkin = "Drachkin",
	Giant = "Riese",
	Humanoid = "Humanoid",
	Mechanical = "Mechanisch",
	Undead = "Untoter",
	Unknown = "Nicht Spezifiziert",
}
elseif loc == "ruRU" then localized = {
	Beast = "Животное",
	Demon = "Демон",
	Elemental = "Элементаль",
	Dragonkin = "Дракон",
	Giant = "Гигант",
	Humanoid = "Гуманоид",
	Mechanical = "Механизм",
	Undead = "Нежить",
	Unknown = "Не указано",
}
 end


Tekkub, where is WidgetWarlock-Alpha1 library?

Isn't it possible to call the function click fires with a script in a macro?

Or add a keybinding function to the addon?

Focus of Target - Explanation

When I get focus of a NPC to shackle/sheep sometimes, the group will switch NPCs for me to shackle/sheep. I target new NPC and set focus with ControlFreak, when I do the sheep/shackle, its the prior target not the current one that gets sheeped/shackled.

Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Tekkub, UnitDebuff in the beta now returns expiration time instead of time left. To make ControlFreak indicate the correct time remaining you should change line 260 to

timeLeft = (select(7, UnitDebuff(unit, controlled[unit]))) - GetTime()

in ControlFreak.lua

I noticed the LibDataBroker folder is empty, so I'm guessing that might have something to do with it.
The current 2.4.3.9-Beta release here includes all needed files including LibDataBroker-1.1.lua; no more errors will occur at logon.

Actually its a conflict between XLoot and CF that causes problems. If I could find a mod that replaces XLoot Master I'd be happy but I haven't so far.
"...that causes problems" is not any help. What problems? As listed by the author on the first page: Please report all bugs and feature requests to my Google Code tracker. And try to provide more info than "it causes problems" .
