FuBar - LuckyCharms  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.8.6
by: Vrul [More]
Please use Symbology instead.

The raid icons placed into a FuBar panel for easy access. Options to arrange the icons into a kill order and report them in chat. When in a party/raid only the leader/assistants can move the icons but they will sync so that everyone will have the same icon order on their screens.

A party/raid member can be assigned to an icon by name and a list of those assignments can be sent to chat. In a party you just have a list of members but for a raid the list is sub-divided by class.

How to use:
For ease of explanation any reference to a group will mean a party or raid. Likewise, all references to the leader will mean the party leader, raid leader, or a raid assistant.

When you right click any LuckyCharms icon in the FuBar panel a menu should come up. Go to Appearance -> Unlock and make sure its checked if you want to rearrange the order of the icons (which is the kill order).

If you are in a group and the leader is also using LuckyCharms then you will be in sync mode. While sync'd only a leader can move the icons around but everyone using LuckyCharms will see the same icon order.

You can disable syncing by opening the menu and going to Sync Mode and then selecting either Disable in Party or Disable in Raid. Disabling sync mode will let you move the icons around but they will no longer be in the proper kill order. Once you turn sync mode back on the icons will move back to the proper order again.

When you are a leader of a group the menu will change and the normal menu will be moved to a submenu at the bottom called Options. You will now have a Broadcast submenu which has the ability to send the kill order to the group through a raid warning and to be able to send any assignments (explained below) through normal group chat. Below that are (optionally) Pull Count and Ready Check which do just what you think.

Next should be the icon of the one you right clicked (or later moused over before moving the mouse into the menu) and some text saying for example "Assign skull to:" Following that is a list of everyone in the group. In a party it is just a list in alphabetical order but in a raid the list is subdivided by class to make it easier to find who you are looking for.

To assign someone just click on their name and they are assigned to that icon. They should get the icon next to their name and in a raid the icon will also be next to their class submenu. To reassign the icon simply click another person's name.

Once someone is assigned there will be a new entry at the bottom of the group member list called "None." Clicking that will set the icon back to having nobody assigned (and remove the "None" entry).

Just like with the kill order, member assignments are sync'd with the group.

If you are in a group but aren't a leader and right click an icon you will still see the list of all members but without the leader options or the ability to click to assign an icon.

Note: It is recommended that you delete the folder(s) for an existing addon when updating to a different version. This is to keep files that are no longer used from taking up space.

I just updated both FuBar-LuckyCharms and FuBar-MicroMenu. I'm not sure if I fixed the problem though, but I took a shot at what I suspect is the underlying issue.

Hiya!

Deleting the savedvariables didn't do anything - wasn't sure it would, since these were 'fresh' installs but figured I'd give it a shot. Btw, I get the same error message when logging in with FuBar_MicroMenu (I didn't post on that yesterday because I noticed you'd uploaded a new version, wanted to check it first):

FuBar_MicroMenu-1.0.1\MicroMenu.lua:118: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'scaling' (a nil value)

So for the micromenu I'll probably just stick with the Bartender4 Menu Bar, hidden except when moused over. I'm assuming this is some conflict with one of the other AddOns I run, since no one else seems to be reporting it.

The Lucky Charms Broadcast options worked perfectly though, once you explained them - not initially loading isn't that big of a deal with Lucky Charms, since being a party leader and needing to mark targets is more of a situational thing, I can just manually load it on those occasions I need it.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Can't Get 'Broadcast' To Work

For the error I'll suggest deleting the FuBar_LuckyCharms.lua files in your WTF\Accounts\<AccountName>\SavedVariables folder. That should hopefully fix the error on login and allow it to load without re-enabling each time.

Broadcast only works for the icons to the left of the 'None' icon. You will need to unlock the icons (Appearance -> Unlock) and rearrange them so that the 'None' icon is to the right of the ones you want to Broadcast information for.

Basically the 'None' icon acts as a breakpoint for Broadcasts so you can make assignments to all icons but limit which ones are announced. This is handy when going from bigger pulls to pulls of just two or three, saves you from announcing icons that aren't there (if you moved the 'None' icon that is).

Can't Get 'Broadcast' To Work

Hiya Vrul. =)

Sweet AddOn, extremely handy when leading a party! Two questions though:

1) I get the following error when logging in:

FuBar_LuckyCharms-1.8.4\LuckyCharms.lua:203: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'scaling' (a nil value)

And FuBar_LuckyCharms doesn't load ... I can right-click the FuBar, enable LuckyCharms, and it will work from that point on, but next time I log out and back in, same thing happens.

2) Using the FuBar icons to set target raid icons works perfectly, as does the 'Pull Count' timer. As for Icon assignments though, I can assign icons to party members, but when I choose to 'Broadcast' the assignments to party chat, nothing happens. No error message or anything, just ... nothing. Does everyone in the party need to have FuBar_LuckyCharms for that to broadcast to party chat? (seems unlikely) Or maybe it only works in raids and not 5-man parties?

Minor issues really, I mostly wanted an easy way to set raid icons, and for that it works great. Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong to get the full functionality working.

Thanks!

Like I said, FuBarPlugin-2.0 still uses the global this and arg variables to function and that methodology is now obsolete. One day when Blizzard pulls the plug on it completely, any mod using FuBarPlugin-2.0 will stop working unless someone comes along and makes the exact same edits to it that I did in my version. If the Ace website didn't break my login when they switched over I would've updated the actual library for everyone.

As for LibFuBarPlugin-3.0, I wasted many hours rewriting my mods to support it at one point, only to find out it completely broke right click drop-down menus. Maybe that's not the case now but I don't plan to revist it any time soon.

I am well aware of LDB. Only one of my mods (FuBar-PointMan) can be made to work with it. The concept of LDB is great, but any plug-in that is more than an icon and/or text information doesn't really convert to it. That is, unless you code for each LDB display add-on out there, which defeats the point of the idea all together (and even then it may not be possible for any particular one). Trust me, if/when they change the concept to allow for more robust plug-ins I'll rewrite my stuff to support it.

Don't get me wrong either. I'm not a huge fan of FuBar or anything. Its was just THE MOD of its kind at the time I made my plug-ins. I had to jump through hoops to make FuBar-BagBar and FuBar-LuckyCharms work with FuBar properly. That is a major reason why I haven't picked one of the LDB display mods to port it over to. That and the fact I don't want to constantly try and explain why a LDB plug-in works with only one LDB display mod and not the others.

Well, 2.0 is 3.0.2 compatible (from the link I gave). As is LibFuBarPlugin-3.0. This is the only mod I've ever seen (and I've seen & tested hundreds) that uses their "own" version of that library. Its just unusual and pretty much unnecessary. Why add load time when you don't have to?

Another option is to drop going-on-obsolete FuBar-only support altogether and move to LibDataBroker support as many other mods have. FuBar is no longer in active development. Those still using FuBar can still use LDB mods by using the Broker2FuBar mod (or using a seperate LDB display).

I removed the extra files. They were only there because I forgot to erase the copies I made when I replaced the drive they are normally on.

As for FuBarPlugin-2.1, that is just a version I modified to comply with WoW 3.0.2. FuBarPlugin-2.0 worked for the most part but if/when Blizzard removes the global 'this' and 'arg#' support it will break. It also made a couple of my addons not work properly as they were updated to use the passed variables and not use the globals and when hooking and passing the data on to FuBarPlugin it broke since it didn't comply with that standard.

The FuBar_LuckyCharmsFu v1.8.2 ZIP download contains a bunch of files in \backup paths.

And what's with the "FuBarPlugin-2.1" library? Why not use FuBarPlugin-2.0 as all other old-school FuBar plugins use?

This works without any other addons (except for FuBar of course). The naming similarity is just an unfortunate coincidence..
