Doom CooldownPulse  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.11
by: Freki [More]
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- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)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- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)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 bit.band 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
-----------

Hello, I really do enjoy youre addon but im wondering is there any way to: 1 add posibility of tracking pet abilities cooldowns , 2 adding some sort of list of spells that would have their cooldown ignored.

Your first suggestion should already be working. Is it not tracking your pet cooldowns? Make sure to pay close attention, I know it's easy to miss sometimes. As for your second suggestion, it's been suggested before. As of now I want to keep this mod very basic but as I've talked about before I have considered making an "extra features" sort of plugin mod that would add such a feature.

Haunt is the only spell that you listed that has a cooldown. The others won't show because they don't have a cooldown. They're spammable, not that you'd want to spam them of course.

I currently have a problem with CDP not recognizing my trinkets.
Have tried 3 different trinkets and none of the work (one of the was the pvp trinket).

A guild mate have the same problem.

A addon I use called cooline recognizes the trinkets and displays them.

Hi guys,

I'm pretty sure I found and fixed the source of the problem. I'm going to test it out for a couple days to make sure everything's running smoothly. If you'd like, you can test out the new version and see if it's working for you by downloading from here:http://home.fuse.net/andrewd/Doom_CooldownPulse.zip

PS: I'm pretty sure it still won't work with items that are used in macros. It doesn't seem like there's an easy solution to this, and since it's not very high priority I won't worry too much about it right now. Please let me know if you run into any other problems though.

I would really love to be able to remove the showing of a list of spells, especialy that as a retribution paladin you have alot of spells on with cooldown. (divine storm, crusader strike, judgements would be really handy to don;t show them ).
Verry nice addon, and superb graphical customization.

Power Word: Shield Question

Great Mod, i really love it! I was just wondering if there's any plans for having options available in the future for spells like Power Word: Shield where I could have it pulse after weaken soul debuff is gone instead of the 4 sec cooldown? Or even just be able to adjust the cooldown time myself would work too. Thanks =P

This is great, and just what I was looking for. I tried a Scrolling Battle Text addon with an option for cooldowns, but I ended up not using half of the features because all I really wanted were the cooldown timers. Others have timer bars and such that I don't want to have to look at... This is perfect by flashing an icon in your face. I put it right next to grid and hardly have to look elsewhere.

Sorry for my lack of responses. Here I go!

@SodiumIon:
I was able to find the problem you mention (for some reason, the UI doesn't recognize water elementals as normal pets). I fixed the problem, however... the icon is the same as frost nova, so I could see how that might be confusing. I'm thinking maybe some kind of distinguishing feature for pet cooldowns.

@cerbul:
I've been resistant to this in the past (for the sake of keeping things basic), but I've had a lot of requests for this, so it might be coming.

@jackbelt67:
Ghost: Pulse (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...hostPulse.html), a mod similar to this, has the feature you want. I'm normally not one to advertise a competitor, but Doom: Cooldown Pulse was meant to be very basic to keep CPU usage as low as possible so advanced features like this probably won't be coming.

@sakurakira:
I'm glad you were able to find a mod that satisfied your needs

First of all great addon!
It is possible to use a custom overlaytexture for the icon, like buttonfacade?
Or what have i to edit to make it possible? I don't like the "classic" round borders

Hi Rufio,

Thanks for your suggestion. I never thought of using ButtonFacade since DCP's icons aren't really buttons in the normal sense, but I will see if I can fit this in whenever I update next.
