IWD (fan's update)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v1.6a
by: tattooedpierre [More]

IWD (fan's update)

Original mod: http://www.torridreflections.com/wow/ by Torrid.

Features

  • Clears WorldDefense spam
  • Shows number of attacks within a given timeframe for each zone
  • Alerts you when a certain threshold of attacks has been met
  • Flash the most recent attacked area
  • Shows you the time since the last attack
  • new Shows you the zone and sub-zone for each attack, to help easily locate
  • new LDB support!
  • new Audio alert (optional)

IWD replaces the WorldDefense channel spam with a few lines of text floating above your default chat frame. This indicates which zones are being attached, how many attacks have been recorded, how long ago the last attack was and if an area is being pounded; IWD will announce in the chat frame as well.

NOTE: Because of the changes to v1.6 which included the SavedVariables structure and other XML changes, I'd recommend binning any current folder with IWD and totally replacing it with this new version.

Known Issues
  • None

v1.5.3 is BETA. Ie: there are still some known bugs.. and ones I'm sure are unknown. But its out there.. and works for the most part. Will fix bugs in due course.

- v1.6: Rewrote the configuration screen using Blizzards own interface menu, will show up as 'IWD'. Added basic LDB data feed to show the most recently attack target. Will expand on this in the future to include a tooltip with details.
- v1.5.4: Updated for 3.1, fixed config bug. No FuBar support atm.
- v1.5.3: Updated for WotLK, however, not all bugs fixed. LUA error re: slider in options panel still outstanding.
- v1.5.2: Updated TOC for compatibility with WoW 2.4; updated zone list to include some new areas.
- v1.5.1: Updated TOC for compatibility with WoW 2.2; no further changes were made at this time.
- v1.5: Hopefully have fixed this frame bug that's been plaguing people. The frame is now on a lower strata than before. Minor visual tweak. Integrated TBC zone names I'd collected. Updated README and in-game help. Fixed /iwd lock command to actually work; same for options menu locking tick box.
- v1.4r1 Bug Fix. This version fixes a bug which would cause the IWD frame to vanish when it had been moved, after a logout. Tweaked move frame.
- v1.4 Stable release. Reworked some internal stuff, the zone list is now in a seperate file to make it easier to update. Also added the option to unlock the IWD alert frame and move it via /iwd menu (requested). Cleaned up the chat alerts and options menu.
- v1.3.9 Stable version; full FuBar support (working!). Bug fixes and zone code cleaned up. Added some code to auto-join WorldDefense in case your not in that channel. Changed debugging code to help track future problems (touch wood etc). Added TBC zones I've collected into the main array.
- v1.3.8-r1 fixes the debug spam, and also fixes a bug I wasnt aware of that meant you coulnd't toggle zone/subzone text properly. Enabling/Disabling IWD from the options screen will throw an error but it still works. I'm looking into this. Again, looked into the FuBar code and it's almost complete.
- v1.3.8 implements a new tracking system to record new zones (primarily Outland areas) to further improve the zone definition list. FuBar support has been tweaked in this version too so hopefully it's working a little better now. I'm still working on adding more options.
- v1.3.7.1b fixes error message related to unresolved FuBar issue.
- Completely rewrote FuBar support
- Fixed colour coding on FuBar
- Added option to mute normal alert in favour of FuBar-only alerts
- Added audio alert option
- Added tooltip to FuBar plugin to display location details
- Added flashing icon to FuBar that will indicate attack severity

Certainly would be nice if another author would pick this up

Yes, I see in the error messages that it has references about IgnoreMore, _Corpse and Chatter's URLCopy module; but all of the three errors showed up after I've installed IWD. I didn't have the addon for a long time - so yes, it was deleted before And these errors are there all the time, not just for the first login.

Nice to see this addon again! But there is an old problem: after enabling the addon first time, the IWD-frame is too wide: it is as long as my screen. (after a /reloadui it's fine, but it can be annoying with a new toon) If you need a screenshot, I can upload one.

Oh, and there are some errors after the first run:

It uses world defense only, you can turn off local defense if you wish, though you'll no longer be able to see local defense chat - if there is any.

v1.6

- Removed all the old XML for the options and integrated it in the Blizz Interface > Addons options panel.
- Stripped out all old FuBar stuff and replaced with LDB support. This is very basic at the minute but it mimics what I had previously put in for FuBar to a point. I will look at adding a tooltip with attack details in the future.

I've actually recently picked it up again and am working on rewriting the parts that are broken. I'm also going to look into pulling out the FuBar crap and replacing it with LDB - which you can 'convert' for FuBar.

Any chance that we'll see an update to this crucial addon? I am on my bleeding knees begging here
I'll check it out, not been playing much WoW lately but will see if I can fix it.

Whilst the update fixed the config errors, I have noticed a bug whereby upon entering a BG there is a chat related error. I'm trying to test/confirm/fix this.

A 3.1 update for this would be almost as great as Christmas!

I'm looking into it. Going through and updating as many of my addons as I can just now. I've not used FuBar for some time and have never used LDB either to be fair but will check it out.
