Doom CooldownPulse  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.11

Note: Because I no longer play WoW, I cannot actively maintain this AddOn. At this time, the AddOn works fine, and I will continue to make an effort to fix bugs as patches are released. If you are an AddOn author and want to contribute to the code base, please feel free to submit a pull request to the AddOn's GitHub repository.

What does it do?
Ever wanted to know when a certain ability will come off cooldown, but you're too caught up in a fight to notice? Doom_CooldownPulse is designed to fix that problem! It flashes the icon of the ability in the middle of your screen whenever it becomes usable again.

Great! Now.. how do I set it up?
Doom_CooldownPulse requires no initial setup; just install and you're good to go! However, the options frame (which is accessable by typing /dcp) allows very easy customization. You can change all of the following:
  • Icon size
  • Icon position (press the unlock button)
  • Fade in time
  • Fade out time
  • Max opacity (transparency)
  • Max opacity hold time
  • Animation scaling (how big/small it gets when it flashes)
  • Cooldowns to ignore
  • Overlay color for pet cooldown pulses
It is intended to be very easy to customize, and your changes take effect immediately. You can see how your settings will look by pressing the "Test" button, or reset them to the default settings by pressing the "Defaults" button.

Isn't this very similar to another addon, JIM's Cooldown Pulse?
Yes, the concept was originally developed by JIM. However, JIM has since gone MIA due to his new job and no longer updates his addon. I was able to get in touch with him, and he is very much supportive of Doom_CooldownPulse. Doom_CooldownPulse is neither an updated version nor a direct clone, but instead an alternative option with the same concept.
Version 1.2.11
- Updated TOC number for Patch 5.4
- Fix for some spells not appearing (thanks, vinsonb!)

Version 1.2.10
- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)

Version 1.2.9
- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)
- Added feature: Show spell name text on pulse

Version 1.2.8
- Fix error introduced with 4.2 (sorry for the long delay, I don't really play anymore and wasn't aware of the comments)

Version 1.2.7
- Fixed error from Patch 4.1 COMBAT_LOG_EVENT change

Version 1.2.6
- Fixed a compatibility issue with Bartender 4 (thanks @ Codex)

Version 1.2.5
- Should now properly save settings between sessions

Version 1.2.4 (Cataclysm Update)
- Fixed error from "GetItemCooldown"
- Please let me know if any other issues occur with Doom_CooldownPulse in 4.0.1 by leaving me a comment.

Version 1.2.3
- Updated TOC for Patch 3.3
- General code cleanup, including a few changes that should hopefully increase efficiency a bit

Version 1.2.2
- Overhaul of item cooldown monitoring, which produced condensed, more efficient code, and fixes problems with trying to ignore items you use from your cast bar via keybind.

Version 1.2.1
- Just a TOC version update to clear any confusion about whether this is still up to date (it is!)

Version 1.2
- New! Due to popular demand, you can now specify cooldowns you wish to ignore!
- New! You can now set a color overlay for your pet cooldowns (by default, there is no overlay)
- New! Missed the old heart-beat sound from JIM's Cooldown Pulse? Drag the lubdub.wav sound file from JIM's addon into the Doom_CooldownPulse folder and you now have a sound notification
- Fix: Now properly tracks cooldowns from items used from your cast bar via key-bind.
- Fix: Now properly tracks non-hunter/warlock pet cooldowns (mages: you may want to make use of the color overlay since Water Elemental's Freeze ability has the same icon as Frost Nova)

Version 1.1.5
- Fixed small but rare bug that prevented certain spell cooldowns (from what I've discovered, only Feral Faerie Fire) from not being properly recognized.
- Updated TOC version

Version 1.1.4
- (Error fix) Hunter's "Kill Command" ability should no longer cause an error.

Version 1.1.3
- Wait, pets have cooldowns? Well I guess we should monitor them too!
- Minimum cooldown increased from 1.5 sec to 2 sec so that slower wands won't spam your screen every 1-2 seconds.

Version 1.1.2
- Fix to error that would result from clicking an empty bag slot.

Version 1.1.1
- Added option to move the icon
- Added option to reset settings to default
- Added option for "max opacity hold time", meaning how long you want the icon to stay shown at it's highest transparency.
- Now tracks "delayed" cooldowns (e.g. Stealth, Nature's Swiftness)

Version 1.1
- New options frame accessible by /dcp

Version 1.0.2
- Much nicer animation (imo)
- Fix for bug that would cause first cooldown used upon logging in not to be recognized.

Version 1.0.1
- Fix bug that would occur if you use an item in your bags that disappears after use.
- Clear cooldowns when joining arena (untested, but should work)

Version 1.0
Initial release

Jop, fiinally an updated "jim's CDP" actually i like the older version without the options menu, no config is better, it does what it does right out of the box, and some little cahnges can be done via editing the lua.

hopefully there will be no big changes in the future, that im forced to use the newest version with the options menu
