ShieldsUp  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.3.190
by: Phanx, Akkorian
ShieldsUp monitors your Earth Shield, Water Shield, and Lightning Shield.
  • Easy-to-read plain text display
  • Shows your active shields and their remaining charges *
  • Shows who you cast your Earth Shield on
  • Visual indication when another shaman overwrites your Earth Shield
  • 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.
Feature Requests
I consider ShieldsUp to be complete, and do not plan to add any new features. If you would like to suggest something anyway, feel free to submit a suggestion ticket describing your idea.
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)
  • Character level, spec, and race
  • Description of the problem
  • What steps can I follow to reproduce the problem?
  • Does the problem happen 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!
Language Support
Compatible with all locales. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어 (partial), 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the ShieldsUp localization page on CurseForge, and then leave a comment, or send me a PM here or on CurseForge, to let me know that you’ve made changes.

Edit: Here is what I found after looking more closely.

Sink Errors: They are likely due to the libs being commented out in ShieldsUp.toc -- uncomment them so that the libs are loaded, and it works.

LSM Sound Errors: LSM is defined as a local in panel1's OnShow but not in panel2's in the Options.lua. Adding local LSM = LibStub("LibSharedMedia-3.0", true) to panel2's OnShow function made the sound selection dropdowns work again.

No version number = I'm not spending any more time than I'm already spending to type this post looking into the issue(s).

Sorry...I accidentally edited it out of my original post once I figured out the issue. The version I was referring to was 3.0.9.44-beta (as indicated on your downloads page and the zip file name, although the toc inside it says 3.0.3.44-beta). I have no idea what version the other guy was using.

Ah, well, both of those were already fixed in my local copy; a release will be forthcoming once I figure out an elegant way to reorganize the config panel, since right now with the few extra options I've added stuff overlaps when the panel is at default size (i.e. BetterBlizzOptions isn't installed). I'm not sure how that's related to the other guy's issue though? His issue was related to not having the "Widgets.lua" file...

ShieldsUp-3.0.9.44-beta.zip

A mac does not use backslash for directory delimiters.

Code:
Core.lua
Libs\CallbackHandler-1.0
	CallbackHandler-1.0.lua
	CallbackHandler-1.0.xml
Libs\LibSharedMedia-3.0
	lib.xml
	LibSharedMedia-3.0.lua
Libs\LibSink-2.0
	lib.xml
	LibSink-2.0.lua
Libs\LibStub
	.pkgmeta
	LibStub.lua
	LibStub.toc
Locales
	ruRU.lua
Options.lua
README.TXT
ShieldsUp.toc
Widgets.lua
I hope this makes sense. Yes, the backslash is *in the directory name*. There is no Libs directory at all. (I'm not sure what you need to do to fix this, maybe a setting in your zip program. Strange error.)

EDIT: I thought it was working but I get the same errors as below when changing settings. Fixing the directory structure and the lib paths in the toc doesn't seem to help.

EDIT2: Firedancer's fix allowed me to change sounds. But I still get errors with the "Text alert" options:
Code:
[2009/03/28 18:32:58-1434-x1]: ShieldsUp-3.0.3.44-beta\Options.lua:414: attempt to call method 'GetChecked' (a nil value)

[2009/03/28 18:32:59-1434-x4]: ShieldsUp-3.0.3.44-beta\Options.lua:483: attempt to call method 'GetChecked' (a nil value)
Anyway... works well enough for me! Keep up the good work

There's no possibility of an error in my compression software, because the file you download from this site is automatically generated by WoWInterface from a version control repositoriy on WoWInterface; my compression software never touches anything. I can't really see this being a WoWI issue though, as if their server was creating zips that didn't work on Macs, such a glaring error would have been reported and fixed a long time ago. The problem you're describing definitely lies with your decompression software; make sure that it is reasonably up to date, that it fully supports the ZIP format, and that any options related to preserving directory structures are enabled. I don't use a Mac, so I can't walk you through that process or recommend any good decompression software, sorry.

As for the errors, they've been reported a good half-dozen times in the comments below, and I have responded just as many times stating that I am aware of them, and that they are already fixed in a yet-unreleased version, and that that version will be released once I figure out how to arrange the GUI so that it's usable for noobs who don't have BetterBlizzOptions to make the UI options panel bigger. Currently there are several options which overlap each other and/or overflow out of the panel. I may have to add another sub-panel, though I'd rather not.

Sorry for the bug report spammage. The server was taking a dump and conveniently processed my submission despite giving me errors

Feature request: option to turn off the water shield count if you're only interested in ES.

Thanks for the great addon

3.1.0.57-beta is now available. This version improves support for dual spec swapping, and fixes some outstanding issues with the text output options.

I have attempted to update the existing Russian translations to fit within the new configuration GUI, but as I am not fluent in Russian, I really have no idea how well this worked. Additionally, several new options have been added and need to be translated. If you play in a Russian client and notice any errors or can provide any of the missing translations, please send me a PM!

I'm also still looking for translators for other locales.

Edit: To the people who keep posting that they can't see the Earth Shield info, you are going to have to do more than fire off a vague ticket or comment and never check back. I am not experiencing this issue, and cannot see any reason for this issue to occur, so just telling me "it doesn't work!" is not helpful at all. Keep in mind that if you are not in a group, you shouldn't see a second charge counter or a target name. Even if you are in a group, your Earth Shield is only monitored if you cast it on a player or pet in your group (party or raid, and includes yourself). If you are in a group, and you are casting Earth Shield on someone in your group, and you're still not seeing a charge counter or target name, I cannot fix your problem if you cannot provide me with any useful information. If you really want your problem to be fixed, please read >> this page << and then post a bug report with all of the information listed in Step 4. Then, check back after a day or two, and provide any feedback requested. If you are unwilling to help me help you, please just don't post.

3.1.1.69-beta is now available. This version adds automatic visibility states; options for this feature are available in their own sub-panel under the ShieldsUp panel. Additionally, several overlapping controls in the main panel have been rearranged so they no longer overlap.

If you are having issues with a dual spec, please do not bother posting unless you are going to check back and provide feedback. I do not have a dual spec on my shaman, and do not feel like spending 1000g to buy it just to troubleshoot this issue when I have no plans to ever play my shaman as anything other than a healer. I've had several people post comments and/or bug reports describing issues with switches between dual specs, and not a single one has responded to my requests for additional information. If you want your problem fixed, you're going to have to do more than just type "it dun werk fix plz" and leave.

3.1.1.70-beta is now available. This version fixes the issue with dual specs and switching from a spec without Earth Shield to one with it. Many thanks to Italianrobot for his assistance in tracking down the problem.

At this point I consider ShieldsUp to be "feature complete", so if no new bugs are reported in the next week or so I will finally remove the "beta" designation. Please test the new visibility options and report any issues you encounter.

3.1.1.70-beta is very spammy about ES fading from my target. I get from 2 to 10-15 messages about it running out. Sure, it's nice to be alerted – but not that much.

Edit: If I ES myself (in Solo mode) and then switch to WS, it also spams me with ES fading. It also throws this error when I cast WS:
Code:
[2009/05/02 22:40:55-2141-x8]: ShieldsUp-3.1.1.70-beta\Core.lua:660: attempt to concatenate local 'sound' (a nil value)
ShieldsUp-3.1.1.70-beta\Core.lua:429: in function `?'
ShieldsUp-3.1.1.70-beta\Core.lua:135: in function <Interface\AddOns\ShieldsUp\Core.lua:135>

Could you be more specific? Where are you seeing the 10-15 messages? I've played daily with ShieldsUp, as have several IRL friends and members of my guild, and I haven't seen or heard about anything like that.

The error message seems to indicate that you've somehow managed to select an alert sound that doesn't actually exist. Perhaps you'd selected a sound that was registered by another addon (through the SharedMedia registry system), and then uninstalled or disabled the other addon?

Try deleting your saved variables. If both problems go away, try reconfiguring ShieldsUp the way you had it before. If either problem reappears, then that is a bug and I'll need to know which settings you've changed from the defaults. If either problem is not resolved, please check my portal for a list of information I need, and then post a bug report.

Zapping the prefs helped – I don't get any of the errors now. I had ShieldsUp set to route its messages via MSBT, and I even got notifications when walking indoors <-> outdoors.

Any problems if you reconfigure it to route messages via MSBT again?
