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

I know about the making a macro thing... but I was just looking to make the "real" addon in the size of lets say 2-3 of my normal bottons, so that I could have the information provided by the addon together with my bottons.

In that way, i could see the "ready", "Controlled (with countdown)", "Losse", "damage" and "dead" infor and use it as a button at the same time...

Right now, I have made the macro, and have the addon floating somewhere on my screen... But I would just love the ability to rezise the addon, so I could fit it in my buttonbar.

Would this be possible?

In the options, could the ability be added to change the scale of the "Control Freak" floating button.

No.. This will not show if you are being CC'ed, Conrtol Freak is all about your own CC abillitys. eg. Hibernate(druid) sheep(mage) fear undead(pala) sap(rouge) banish(warlock) and so on.

If you get CC'd on a bg, you can see the cooldown on the debuff, so why need an addon for that?

Or have I misunderstod something?

Break threshold, transparency & controlled status

Let me start by saying I love this addon!

However, two minor annoyances:
1. Break threshold. Why 10s? It would be nice to have it automatically default to the length of your CC spell, ie 50s for polymorph.
2. Alpha. "Level to fade to when focus is controlled, dead or not set." Why is the setting for alpha when dead or not set tied to the setting for alpha when controlled?

I went into the saved variables file and changed the break threshold to 50, then in game set the alpha to 0. Voila, the frame is hidden unless I have a focus. Still...would be nice if it could be handled in-game without editing files.

Also, I second the request from the user for a button-sized frame to blend in with my action bars.

I agree the scale is kind of hard to read on some monitors and the ability to be able to change the scale in the mods ui would be awesome!! This mod is already great. Making it more readable by changing the scale size will make it even greater!!
Thanks for developing this mod and keep up the good work.

Re: Re: Feature Request

If you guys really want to change the size then you can go into the "block" LUA and make the following changes.

frame:SetHeight
the number after it can be changed to set the height of the frame

edgeSize
can be changed to set the border size, i have mine at 3 and below that, the insets at 1 to have almost a invisible border.

Under "text"
local text = frame:CreateFontString(nil, nil, "GameFontNormalSmall")
Can be changed, small if for small, if you have nothing after normal you get a medium font size, and if you replace small with large you get a large font.

Lastly, again under text
frame:SetWidth(text:GetStringWidth() + 28)
the number after the + can be changed to set the width. Depending on the size font you use, the width will change based on the number.

Note: I just got this mod today so these are workarounds, hopefully the author will add the features soon. Also, i dont recommend updating the mod if you have made these changes because all your changes will be reset.

Hi Tekkub, can you give me some pointers on how to hide the frame, or eventually an option ?

Currently, I use a macro with /click ControlFreakFrame.
Using NECB to track everything, the frame is currently just an annoying object in my UI.

Un-egistering the frame would render the /click macro in functional right?

Thank you in advance.
Yves.


Edit:
Would changing the alpha to 0, and hacking frame:EnableMouse(true) to false be a viable solution?
Edit2: never mind me, disabling EnableMouse would of course render the /click in functional also :/

I suppose I could unregister the frame and put a script in a macro to call the function that the click on the frame would have caused?

-Just brainstorming here, I have a very limited LUA knowledge.

Edit3:
An option to only show the frame while a target is CCed would work too

This has been improved in the current 2.4.2.6-Beta release that can be downloaded here.

There is now A "Scale" slider to adjust the frame size in ControlFreak's Interface, AddOns options panel. You can also right-click the ControlFreak frame to bring the options panel up.

I basically have a similar request as Yves.
What I'd love is a "Make Frame click-through" option, which completely undoes any ability to physically interact with the frame, but in return ofc I'd need to adapt my macro to directly /script-call the method in ControlFreak? (I think? Not sure )

I got this error today when logging in to try Control Freak for the first time.

[2008/07/14 09:48:30-64-x1]: ControlFreak-2.4.2.7\Config.lua:112: Cannot find a library instance of "LibDataBroker-1.1".
Bagnon-1.5.2\libs\LibStub\LibStub.lua:45: in function `GetLibrary'
ControlFreak-2.4.2.7\Config.lua:112: in main chunk

---

I noticed the LibDataBroker folder is empty, so I'm guessing that might have something to do with it.

Yeah I got the same error too.

I downloaded Picofriends another Tekkub mod which used it and copy/pasted the libdatabroker folder from there (which is not empty). No errors now

Since the last patch, I get a taint error the 1st time I use CF after logging in.
I notice trinityactionbutton mentioned there, but I get the same error with bongos. Is it a problem with my actionbar addons perhaps?

Code:
