Magic Targets  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.109
by: neotron [More]
Magic Targets is a simple set of frames that shows the current targets of the members raid or party. It's meant primarily for use in raiding to keep track of all the mobs currently engaged in combat. Feature list:
  • Optionally marks your current target and focus target with green respectively blue arrows.
  • Lists the number of people who's currently targeting each mob.
  • Colors each bar based on target status (crowd controlled, tanked, untanked or idle).
  • Shows the icon(s) of the crowd controll methods a mob is currently affected by and optionally shows a countdown timer for the longest duration remaining crowd control method.
  • Automatically adds new mobs as members of the raid targets them.
  • Automatically removes mobs after when they die or when they haven't been actively targeted by someone, or seen in the combat log, for a small period of time. Crowd controlled mobs are always kept on the list.
  • Uses oRA2 and buff detection (defensive stance, bear form and righteous fury) to determine if a player is a tank.
  • Customizable font and font size, bar texture, color and size, and more.
  • Optionally able to listen to events from Magic Marker to prepopulate the list with mobs, including the assigned crowd controlled methods.
  • Optional tooltip shows mob level and type, health percentage, current target, status and Magic Marker assignment. It also lists all players targeting the mob.

Magic Targets 2.0

MT2 is a major refactoring of the original addon. The layout of the bars is now much more flexible. Not only can you freely decide which data to show on the bars, there are also multiple layouts to choose from. Best of all, the transition to Magic Targets 2 should be transparent. Note that the default layout of Magic Targets 2 is different. If you prefer the Magic Marker 1 layout, go into the configuration options => Bar Labels and select the classic Bar Layout. Comments are welcome!

Configuration and use:

Configuration is done using the Blizzard configuration UI. You can use the FuBar/Minimap button or the slash command /mgt config to open it. To get access to a larger number of fonts and textures you need to install the SharedMedia addons.

Note: The bars are not clickable. Due to the secure templates added in WoW 2.0, this is no longer possible. PvP specific addons get around this limitation by making macros that target players by name. Since NPC names are not unique, this is not a viable solution for Magic Targets.

Note that the default layout of Magic Targets 2 is different. If you prefer the Magic Marker 1 layout, go into the configuration options => Bar Labels and select the classic Bar Layout. Comments are welcome!

Changes in r69:
- Fixed some issues due to changes in the LibBars library.

Changes in r67:

- Multiple fixes for 3.0/WotLK.
- New versioning scheme due to wowace migration.

Changes in 80327:

- Changes to work with new LibBars (show count)
- Added Death Coil as a CC spell (even though it's short).

Changes in 79652:

- Fixed detection of warrior tanks when not using oRA2 main tanks (essentially look for a warrior having a shield equipped).
- Added optional timers to crowd control display. Note that due to limitations in the combat log, there's no accurate way to detect when a crowd control is renewed before it expires, so MagicTarget only tracks the initial timer.

Changes In r77860:

- Liblogger No Longer A Fixed Dependency. It Will Still Be Embedded If Found Elsewhere.
- Made The Fubar Plugin Specific To Magictargets To Avoid Issues With Libs.
- Fixed Possible Nil Indexing Error.
- Added Option (On By Default) To Use Class Colors In The Tooltip.

Changes in r77137:

- Added options to set max number of bars, change the size scale factor (to resize font and frame size all at once) and an option to filter normal (non-elite) mobs.
- Fixed bars not hiding when the UI is hidden with Alt-z (LibBars-1.0 issue)

Note: The fix to LibBars-1.0 to allow hiding means that the frames now listen to the UI scale factor. If the bars appear small after updating, simply change the scaling in the bar sizing configuration page.

There is no threat detection in the addon, only detection on whether or not a mob is being tanked at the moment. As for making the bars clickable - it's not doable. There should be a lot of comments as to why in this thread.

I'm looking for something that works with Emalon to make targetting the right add easier.
Unfortunately since 2.0 there is no way for an addon to target programmatically like that. The easiest way to do emalon is the manual way (tabbing or assisting the tank). I wish I could do this but I can't.

LibSimpleBar fixed

The issue with LibSimpleBar-1.0 is fixed in 2.0.80. I had fixed this earlier but forgot to upload the new version to WoWInterface.

This error only occurs when the newest version of magictargets is enabled.
It does not occur with r69.

I think somehow I broke it because I tested it and it worked but then later it failed to work correctly. Not sure why.
