Intel

Version: 0.45
by: Tuhljin [More]

Wintergrasp is now supported! Give it a test and report any issues you find here.


Intel tracks the status of world PvP objectives such as Wintergrasp, Halaa, the Bone Wastes, towers, and other points of interest around Azeroth and Outland. This status, including details such as the time since the objective last changed hands and when a timed event is scheduled to occur (e.g., the Bone Wastes becoming capturable), can be seen on the world map using icons, a countdown/number-captured tracking frame, and tooltips.

Collected data is saved per realm for use in future sessions.

See the included readme.txt file for more information, including usage instructions.

Use with ZoneDefense

ZoneDefense (ZD) is a sister addon to Intel. It is available for download here. Neither is required for the other to operate, but they do complement each other in a number of ways:

  • When ZoneDefense looks for a place to ping on the world map, it checks with Intel to see if one of its icons would work best.
  • When ZoneDefense receives shared alarms while you are in an instance, it forwards them to Intel. This allows Intel to continue to update world objective information when it normally would be unable to do so. (ZD does not have to be set to display shared alarms to forward them to Intel; it need only be set to share them.)
  • When Intel outputs a "pseudo-alarm," such as when a Wyvern Camp is captured or lost (an event not reported by LocalDefense/WorldDefense and thus not normally output to the chat log), it can have ZoneDefense format the message in the manner of a LocalDefense alarm, as customized by the player.
  • When an "under attack" alarm is triggered for a Wintergrasp subzone, the ZoneDP system that ZoneDefense includes (a part of Zone Log) allows Intel to recognize the subzone and thus consider Wintergrasp to have been attacked.

Buy Tuhljin a snack so he'll feel guilty about not yet implementing that suggestion you made. Or maybe just to show your support. That works, too.

The change log lists changes of particular note to users, not every change made.

v0.45
- Updated for WoW 4.0.1.
- Moved the INTEL button to the top left corner of the world map.

v0.44
- Updated for WoW 3.3: Additions to the world map (icons, pings, tooltips, INTEL button) should again be shown reliably and in the proper positions.

v0.43
- Updated for WoW 3.2.
- Wintergrasp is now supported, tracking time until the next battle, time since a battle began, which faction is in control of the zone, and when the last "under attack" defense alarm triggered for the zone. For best results, use with the ZoneDefense addon: This allows "under attack" alarms from subzones in Wintergrasp to be considered an attack on the zone and, as always, improves the look and functionality of Intel-generated alarms (e.g. "The Battle for Wintergrasp will begin in 5 minutes!").
- Last attack time for a location is now remembered between sessions.

v0.42
- Updated for WoW 3.1.
- Revamped Spirit Tower countdown timer code.

v0.41
- Updated icon data and included updated library to account for Eastern Plaguelands changes in WoW 3.0.

v0.40
- Updated for WoW 3.0.

v0.36
- When party/raid-member markers are near an Intel icon or frame on the world map, the Intel tooltip now takes
priority, resolving the issue where these markers could prevent an Intel tooltip from appearing when desired.
- When Intel tooltips are displayed, the names of units near the cursor are now added to a secondary tooltip,
making it easier to see who is near the location.
- The above tooltip-consolidating changes also apply to spirit healer locations and the player's corpse marker.

v0.35
- Contested towers in Eastern Plaguelands now properly show as contested and a pseudo-alarm is generated when
they become contested. (For easier identification at a glance, "contested tower" icons are used instead of the
standard "neutral tower" icons.)

v0.34
- Fixed an error that occurred when clicking a ZoneDefense-formatted Wyvern Camp hyperlink. For best results,
use ZoneDefense version 0.61 or later.

v0.33
- If the addon ZoneDefense (version 0.60 or later) is installed, Intel can now use it to format pseudo-alarms in
the manner of a LocalDefense alarm, as customized by the player through ZD.

v0.32
- Added an option to reset node data from previous sessions. (Intentionally excludes countdown timers.)
- Fixed an issue where pseudo-alarms sometimes reported that a node that was just captured was lost while in
Hellfire Peninsula or Eastern Plaguelands.
- Fixed an issue where nodes' "last change" time could improperly remain "Unknown" if data from a previous session
was in place before the change occurs.
- Fixed an issue where Halaa sometimes started the session with a Neutral icon when control is actually Unknown.

v0.31
- Fixed an issue where undesired or excessive pseudo-alarms (chat log messages) indicating changes to Wyvern Camps
were given when Halaa is captured while you are in Nagrand.
- Fixed an issue where Halaa's Wyvern Camps sometimes used the wrong icon after loading data from another session.
- Intel can now notify you via a pseudo-alarm when Halaa loses guards while you are in Nagrand in addition to when
it gains them.
- When a pseudo-alarm involving gaining or losing guards is issued, it will now give the number of guards gained
or lost when there is more than one.
- Resetting to the maximum number of guards after Halaa is captured should no longer generate a pseudo-alarm.
- Adjusted the size of the Spirit Towers tracker.
- Fixed an issue where the number of captured Spirit Towers could sometimes be off by one if you are in the
zone when the capture is made and the WorldDefense message lagged behind the in-zone states update.

v0.30
- Initial public release of preview version.

Gruffness: Please disable all addons except Intel and see if you still get the same error. If not, use the process of elimination to determine where the conflict lies. (You can enable/disable more than one addon at a time to make this faster but once you've got a suspect addon in mind, you have to enable/disable just that one to be sure.) Once you've got this info, please open a ticket with what you know (including the error message again). Thanks!

I've been getting errors each time I log on. They repeat a few times and are then silent until the next time I log on. Other map altering/enhancing add-ons I use are Mapster, MapNotes and Gatherer. Probably more that I don't recall at the moment.

Re: Bugsack error report

Thanks. I only recently found a new version of the Astrolabe library (which Intel and ZoneDefense both use) that is compatible with 3.1. I'll try to upload a new version soon.

Re: Bugsack error report

Tomacco_Boy: Hmm. Did you perchance log into a realm you hadn't been on while using Intel before and then at some point in the session WoW crashed? That might cause it, though I'm not sure what else might unless the saved variables file was corrupted or tampered with.

I'll put in a fix in the next version. For now, you could try deleting your Intel saved variables from your WTF folder.

Tuhljin, might I recommend a simple solution: WintergraspTimer by Mikma has a global variable 'WGTime.' This variable is the time in seconds counting down to the next battle. You could make WintergraspTimer an optional dependency, and disply the variable (formatted as hours:minutes (just look at ConvertSeconds() in Mikma's mod)) in a display Intel puts on the Wintergrasp map.

The time would at least be a start, better then nothing, and you could add other features to it as you make them.

Re: Re: Wintergrasp

I recently went over the timer code and revamped some things, "dusting things off" you might say so I'm familiar with what's needed to get the Wintergrasp timer implemented. It doesn't seem like doing that will be very difficult, so expect to see an update soon. Also, Intel's timers will hopefully be more accurate than they were in previous versions (though theoretically they should have been perfect before, now they use a different method that should also theoretically be perfect but it involves fewer "moving parts" where problems might occur), but at least when it comes to the Spirit Towers, Blizzard's clock seems to be a bit slow and I haven't been able to compensate for it perfectly. I've been timing their timer, odd as that sounds, and it seems off. Still, Intel's timer lets you know roundabouts when they will be contested, and if anything, it warns you early, not late, so it's not a big problem.

Re: Wintergrasp

In regards to Wintergrasp:

1) Like the towers
2) The shouts in Dalaran
3) When checking the NPC in Dalaran that tells you how long until it starts, update it (if possible)
4) When working with zonedefense, if it finds it in the world defense channel that Wintergrasp is under attack

edit -
5) Communication between other users of the addon via a hidden chat channel could also help to sync multiple users.

Wintergrasp - the timer to start sounds good

Otherwise yes people use it and so keep up the great work and thanks
That'd be a ZoneDefense thing, and it's something I've got on the "to do" list when I've got time. Actually, the list says to add a separate spam handler for Blue Sky Logging Grounds and other areas involved in the Grizzly Hills PvP quests, so you could perhaps set those messages to only display once every minute or so while the rest show every 30 seconds, with an optional "do not show" option.

Wintergrasp

I've been preoccupied by other things (both WoW-related *cough*Overachiever*cough* and otherwise) so Intel hasn't yet been updated to handle Wintergrasp. I'm looking for suggestions on the topic: What do you think Intel should do with Wintergrasp? I had something similar to the Spirit Tower timer in mind, plus we could watch for those NPC yells in Dalaran about the place becoming contested. Please let me know what you think, via a comment here, a ticket, or on Intel's Curse comments page. Thanks!
