Wintergrasp Timer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: beta18 (defunct)
by: Mike-N-Go [More]
This AddOn is not updated for 4.x.

It will remain
for posterity.


If you are still unabated, please show your support if you want this AddOn updated for 4.x. You can either donate, or show your support on the comments page.


As of May 20, 2009: This addon is unsupported for the time being. AddOn authoring was only a hobby of mine. Mike-N-Go is not currently playing WoW, thus not creating or maintaining mods for WoW. If someone wishes to submit a patch for one of my mods to WoWInterface, you may within the bounds of the license bundled with the mod.


Now with slashcommand-options!
/wgt or /wintergrasptimer [option]
screen - shows announcements on screen
chat - shows announcements in chat
sound - plays warningsound with announcements (Sound file is from Nintendo's (c) Smash Brothers, provided by HelpTheWretched (http://noproblo.dayjo.org/ZeldaSounds/).)
stopwatch - shows stopwatch when less than 5 minutes left
time - prints time left in chat

Can anyone confirm or deny if this works in 4.X?

I do not have an active WoW account.

I dunno; I last tested it under 3.0.x.

I am not supporting any of my addons at this time, for college is priority.

Contrary to making the mod not work outside of Northrend, I recommend that you save the wait time in a var, and use that var for your timer if not in Northrend.

Edit1: Added part about making the mod working not.
Good idea, wouldnt work when logging in and you were already in another zone then northrend, but it would work when teleporting there. As long as you get back after it's been captured to update it ;p

Update:
This solved it.

Code:
local B=UnitBuff("player","Essence of Wintergrasp")
	if (B=="Essence of Wintergrasp") then
		wgcontrol = "Defending!"
	elseif (zone=="Naxxramas" or zone=="The Obsidian Sanctum" or zone=="The Eye of Eternity") then
		wgcontrol = ""
	else
		wgcontrol = "Attacking!"
	end
You could also make the trigger if (not b==nil) or even if (b) ? (not sure about this one)

This is the main reason I requested syncing the time with other users of the mod. For example, only broadcast the time for users when they are in Northrend so users on another continent can have an accurate timer reading.

Check out Bang! Wintergrasp 2 for a mod that indicates which faction holds WG.

I have not done too much buff-scanning, but there is a potential problem with using the essence buff to detect what side has WG; if you are not in a zone that does not have said buff, you could get a false-positive.

A way to prevent the false positive is to either scan only when in Northrend, or also scan a player of the opposite faction when the player targets/mouses over them.

On another note, I recommend you use the spell id; it is either 57940 or 58045. As the spell id does not need to be localized, if you do use the buff scanning.

I'm sorry, but I think you have misunderstood me a little. ;(

I was talking about the functions of my own private wintergrasp timer addon (which is not on wowi). And the N/A, elapsed etc functions are stuff I've implemented myself , I was just stating how it worked.

I tried functions to check the map and check colorrange on different mapbuttons and so on, but to no avail.

Checking the buff is a great idea though.

I could do like.
if(continent == 4 or zone==ulduar, etc ,etc) then
check for the wintergrasp buff, then faction = horde.
else if no wintergrasp buff, then faction = alliance
(not actual code, just an example)


Again, sorry for confusing you :P. That our addons both show N/A and elapsed is just a coincidence. I havent tried your addon, I just made a comment to see if you knew a way to solve the faction controlled problem, and a way to always have wintergrasp map selected if the map isnt up.

*Update*
Code:
for i=1,32 do

	buffname, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _ = UnitAura("player", i)

		if(buffname == "Essence of Wintergrasp") then
			wgcontrol = true
		else
			wgcontrol = false
		end
end
That code works if i remove the first and last line (remove the for loop), and set it to ("player", 1) instead.

But I cant know for sure that Essence of Wintergrasp always is buff #1.
So thats why I tried to make a for loop.
Any idea's on how to make the loop work?
I didnt get an error, but wgcontrol was never set to true even though I had the buff.
