ShieldsUp  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.48
by: Phanx [More]

ShieldsUp monitors your Earth Shield, Water Shield, and Lightning Shield.

  • Easy-to-read plain text display
  • Shows your active shields, their remaining charges*, and the name of your Earth Shield target
  • Optional text and sound alerts when one of your shields expires or is removed
  • Condensed display while solo (or for shamans without Earth Shield)
  • Support for all colorblindness modes
  • Support for custom fonts and sounds via LibSharedMedia-3.0 media packs
* Note that Water Shield and Lightning Shield will display a "W" or "L", respectively, except for elemental shamans, who will see a number for Lightning Shield when they have at least one extra charge.

Type “/sup” for options, or browse to the ShieldsUp panel in the standard Interface Options window.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why isn’t ShieldsUp monitoring my Earth Shield?
A: ShieldsUp only monitors Earth Shield when it’s cast on yourself, or on a player or pet in your party or raid group. There is no way for addons to reliably monitor buffs cast on units who are not in your group, so ShieldsUp doesn’t try.
Q: Why am I only seeing one charge counter?
A: ShieldsUp switches to a single-counter display when you are solo, or if you don’t have the Earth Shield talent, since in either situation it’s only possible for you to have one shield active on a target ShieldsUp can monitor.
Feedback
Post a ticket on GitHub or post a comment on this page. If you are reporting a problem, please read this first. If you are requesting a feature, please note that I consider ShieldsUp to be complete, and will probably not add any new features.
Language Support
Works in all languages. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어 (partial), 简体中文, and 繁體中文. You can add or update translations for any language on the CurseForge project page.
Credits
ShieldsUp was originally based on Infineon’s beSch.

Hello Phanx,

Thank you for the Addon, so nice and simple and no bloat. Perfection.

I am into minimal UI's and I use TukUI, I want to make your mod fit a little nicer and all I want to do is to know how to mod the Font choice? Any guidance on best way to do this would be great.

Hi. I submitted a bug report. I'm on the live client, not the beta.

Since it worked fine for me before I posted the release, I'm going to need more information from you; specifically, whether you're on live or beta servers, and if there are any error messages. See also:

Bug Reports

If you encounter a problem with ShieldsUp, please try some quick troubleshooting steps first, and then submit a bug report to let me know about the problem.

Please copy this list into your ticket and fill in as many of the details as you can.
  • ShieldsUp version (eg. 3.3.5.71)
  • WoW version and locale (as seen on the login screen, eg. 3.3.5 enUS)
  • Description of the problem
  • Steps to reproduce the problem
  • Whether the problem happens when all other addons are disabled
  • Exact text of the first related error message, if any
    Please do not include any lists of local variables or installed addons that your error display may add!
  • Screenshot, if the problem is graphical
Remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information from you in order to find and fix the problem!
Thanks.

Earth shield counter not appearing

Hi. Until this latest update the addon was working fine for me.

After updating, the earth shield counter isn't appearing. I'm in a party (cross-realm). I've tried switching specs, and as far as I'm aware, I've checked all the options.

Hi Miisery,

I think you maybe posted on the wrong addon. ShieldsUp doesn’t have anything to do with murloc sounds. Or, maybe you had another addon registering a murloc sound, and you were using that sound in ShieldsUp. If that’s what you mean, then you’ll need to look at other addons you’ve recently updated or removed. The list of sounds ShieldsUp registers with the LibSharedMedia-3.0 library (which allows sharing sounds, fonts, and textures between addons that use the same library) hasn’t changed in a very long time.

So.. I realized today that my Murloc sound is missing. Did this happen to anyone else? I'm sad because all the other sounds besides Gong are too quiet for me to hear. That and Murlocs remind me of the water, so that's what I think of. =[

Was this planned or is it a bug?

Hi Szyarah,

Thanks!

Also, just for future reference, if you check the “Load out of date addons” box at the top of the addon panel on the login screen, WoW will try to load addons that haven’t been updated since the last patch. Most patches don’t break all addons, or even most addons, so this usually gets everything working again with a minimum of fuss. You’ll have to re-check the box after each patch, though.

Thank you!

I LOVE this addon, it's the best and I was very bummed when it went off with the patch. I have been using cheap imitations since then but am gladly switching back.

I’ve just posted a new version with all the changes Phanx had made since the last release (mainly adding WoW China compatibility) and a few other minor fixes (mainly eliminating leaked globals). I also updated the Spanish localization; I’m not greatly fluent, but I am better at it than Phanx.

We still need Korean translations, and the Russian localization is missing translations for a number of phrases. If you can help, please send me a PM!

Version 4.0.3.105
  • Fixed a number of minor bugs
  • Added backwards compatibility for WoW China
  • Added TOC metadata for the Curse Client
  • Updated Spanish localization

Okay, the problem is that NeedjaTracker is overwriting the Blizzard API function "IsInInstance" with a custom function of the same name in the global namespace. I've notified the addon's author, but beyond that, there's nothing I can do in my own addon to fix or work around the problem.

...but I'll keep reading and see if I can figure out what the problem is. From the addon's changelog, though, it looks like it's still under heavy development, with tons of bugfix commits.
haha you rock, that's the voice of a guy who's been writing WoW mods for years GreedBeacon works the same and feels a bit "lighter" so no worries.
