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

Anyway to add timestamps? Knowing how people died is nice, knowing *when* XXXXXX happened is even nicer.

big problem with the latest rev r1.1.3

The latest revision is doing something very bad when people join and leave a raid.

I had data from last nights Naxx stored -I then logged in today and joined a WG raid. Every time someone joined the raid, my WoW froze for 10 seconds or so. Acheron was shown taking up 20+ megs. I unloaded Acheron and the problem went away.

Is anyone else experiencing these problems? This problem persists even after clearing the data.

[Edit] Im getting the following error:

[2009/02/13 13:02:19-7907-x2]: Acheron\Acheron.lua:265: stack overflow

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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?

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?

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.
