Acheron  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.1.10
by: nikkodemus [More]

"Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades."

Acheron provides an easily readable glimpse into the cause of death for anyone in your raid or party. In addition to the damage and healing that occurred to someone up to their moment of death, Acheron also allows you to track and displays buffs and debuffs, which may also contribute to someone's death (Melt Armor on Al'ar, Corrosion on Felmyst, tank missed shield block, etc).

Right-clicking on a raid/party member unit frame will find a new option 'Show Death Reports'. Should be pretty self-explanatory from there.

/acheron show to show the main UI
/acheron config to bring up the config

r1.1.10
- display dropdown now alphabetized
- don't prompt to clear when reconnecting while in an instance
- let's see if we can fix that 'Unknown' bug

r1.1.8
- bump toc
- use the new InteractiveLabel widget in the GUI

To fix for 4.2, either

1) Download this file http://uploading.com/files/a21bbb6m/Acheron.lua/
and drop it in your addon folder, or

2) Manually replace these lines in your Acheron.lua file found by Kesitah:


Open Acheron.lua change Line 356 to: function Acheron:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 369 to: self:HandleBuffEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 371 to: self:HandleHealthEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 417 to: function Acheron:HandleBuffEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 452 to: local msg = CombatLog_OnEvent(Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 461 to: function Acheron:HandleHealthEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

change Line 527 to: local msg = CombatLog_OnEvent(Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

Can't see Healing done.

For some reason, I can't see the heals done. I have the Healing option on but still do not see it in the report.

Has anyone tried to modify acheron to also log enemy player deaths? I would find it extremly useful to look back at the death of arena opponents and see exactly what went down to take them out.

Ideally, this would be a very interesting toggle in the config for acheron to record enemy deaths, with the caveat that keeping it on in a raid during trash pulls would be very resource intensive and wasteful, or just restrict it to enemy player deaths.

I noticed tonight that Acheron wasn't keeping any data. I'd know who died but pulling up any data about them, it was entirely blank.

Everyone in my guild uses it and no one has reported an issue like that. It's possible that another addon is interfering. Have you tried disabling everything but Acheron and seeing if you still have the issue?

Im using 1.1.8 and more often than not, acheron just doesnt work at all. I dont get any error message, but when I pull up the acheron window, it is empty. When on the rare time when I do have a report, if I release, the report invariably dissapears.

When I do manage to get a death report, its really hit or miss as to whether I can link it or not.

Is anyone else having these problems? Any suggestions on how to debug them?

If you're viewing Acheron in the timeline view (that is, without anyone selected), then you'll see timestamps next to each death, sorted in ascending order. When looking at a specific death, however, it only shows the time relative to the point of death, since absolute time would be semi-meaningless.

Is it possible to display timestamps? Not finding the option anywhere in the in-game config.

Thanks, popcorn, glad you like it.

You're a rare breed who likes minimap icons. I don't plan on providing anything beyond the LDB feed, but I believe there's a broker addon that will provide minimap icons for you, although I don't recall what it is off the top of my head. There are some pretty flexible LDB displays out there as well that might come close to providing something clickable for you like a minimap icon.

This is a really awesome mod that I prefer over Grim Reaper or Expiration. I was just wondering, though, is there any chance of getting a minimap icon for this that when clicked toggles the /acheron show command? It's a little annoying having to type out the command everytime I want to pull up Acheron. I know you just implemented an LDB launcher, but it doesn't do much for players like me who prefer clicking minimap icons over having an LDB broker or Fubar.

Either way it's not a gamebreaking issue by any means, so thanks for your fantastic work!

Mmm, yes, I see where the infinite loop is happening. The way around it for now is to check the "Confirm Clear" config option so that it pops up a prompt to clear. I'll get a fix in for the looping issue tonight when I get home from work.
