VolumeControl
Version: Beta 5
by: jaliborc [More]
This is a simple and lightweight mod that creates a DataBroker launcher which allows you to set the game volume easily.

Included Addons
  • VolumeControl: the main addon. Includes the LDB launcher
  • VolumeControl Config: a load on demand addon that contains everything you don't need at startup

How to use
  • Left Click to set the volume
  • Right Click to toggle volume on/off
Beta 5
  • Removed the icon highlights (now I think that displays should handle it...)
  • Updated for 3.1

Beta 4
  • Now the slider shows close to the icon
  • Now the icon highlights while the slider is shown
  • Fixed a bug causing the volume icon to not update properly at startup
  • Any source besides VolumeControl that changes the master volume (like the "Sound Options" panel) will update the icon and the slider.

Beta 3
  • VolumeControl now includes a new addon: VolumeControl Config. This load on demand addon contains most of VolumeControl code, while VolumeControl only contains waht its needed at startup. In other words: now VolumeControl is 2.3kb of size!
  • Changing the volume trough VolumeControl now also updates the SoundOptions panel
  • The volume slider is now fully animated! (with a bit help from the lib Efémero-1.0)
  • Now saves the real volume when the user logouts muted

Beta 2
  • Added icons

Beta 1
  • Initial Release

I've decided to stop the development of this addon. Many alternatives have shown up after VolumeControl, and I prefer to invest my time in the development of other projects.

I will keep the addon working, but I won't add any new features.

Yay!

Finally a half-decent replacement for VolumeFu

Good to hear - thanks :-)

I know I'm likely in a minority wanting that (or am I?), but it sure would be cool :-)

I already decided how to implement the profiles. But, to do it as I intend, I need to finish my library Sushi-1.0 first. It may take a while... be patient.

P.S: Any luck with the textures, Hack?

Any help would be great! To find the textures, go to:

Code:
World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns >VolumeControl > Textures
In this directory, you will find 2 folders: "Normal" and "Hightlight". The first one contains... well, it contains the normal textures! The second one contains their "hight light" version. All of them may be useful, but you may want to start with the normal ones and change them.

Thank you again!

It's a visual thing, but I though I'd mention it.
Visual or not, a bug is a bug. I fixed it in the development version

Great job. The module seems to work great.

Request:
It'd be wonderful to have an option to mute the music, independently of the overall sound. When I start a raid, I like to turn off in-game music, as it's distracting when in voice chat.

I tried Broker2Fubar and it's also happening to me. I've looked into it's code and I found the reason of the bug. I will report it to B2F authors and it should be fixed soon.

EDIT: Reported, not up to me now

Personally I would like sliders for music, ambience and sfx as I do tweak them from time to time too but perhaps a 'basic' (as it is now) and 'advanced' option setting could be made (shange modes via right clicking the block maybe?)

Oh, would be nice perhaps if there was a percentage level for the volume on the block text maybe?

Will report back more when I have had chance t try it in game later on
I would love to add the profiles feature, because I'm going to make VolumeControl configuration load on demand and, so, the performance won't be affected. My only problem is not how to implement it, is which config interface would be intuitive for the average user (I don't want the shift-click neither an option advanced/basic).

Is there any chance of having a FuBar plugin for this ? *beg*

I don't like how FuBar works. So, there's absolutely no chance that I will do a FuBar version. I advice you to use Broker2Fubar, as Zergreth said. It should work with any DataBroker launcher you want to use on FuBar.
