Assigned Tank Assist
Version: 1.1.6
by: Akryn, GreyWolfSC
Assigned Tank Assist creates macros that are aware of the "tank" role assigned by the LFD tool. The default is to assist the tank, but they are normal macros except that they can be longer.

Note that !mt and !ma will also work, for the Bliz raid MT and MA. But if you have more than one MT or MA, it basically picks one at random.

To configure, go to the panel (/atassist will go there immediately), and type in a macro in the large box. In the macro, you can use !t where the name of the tank should be inserted. For example, "/assist !t". The addon will keep the macros up to date with the correct name.

Up to 30 macros are supported.

To actually run the macros, do one or both of the following:

1. Set a key binding in the addon's config. panel.
2. Create a normal macro, or edit an existing one, or in some other way run the command:

Code:
/click AssignedTankAssistButton
That line can also by copy/pasted in-game from the smaller text field in the configuration panel. For macros 2-30, you can do the same thing but put the number after, i.e. "/click AssignedTankAssistButton2"
1.1.5 (12-10-2011):
-Updated TOC for 4.3

1.1.4 (10-19-2010):
-Update for WoW 4.0 (thanks to acidzero for providing the fix, since I don't have an account ATM).

1.1.2 (2-9-2010):
-!mt and !ma tags work properly now (note that the tags are designed for raids that only use 1, tags like this are pretty useless if you use multiple mt's or ma's since there's no way to differentiate between them).

1.1.1 (2-8-2010):
-The !mt and !ma tags work better now.
-Fix for "raidx" spam and lag during raid updates (sorry x.x).

1.1 (2-5-2010):
-Added !mt and !ma for raid "maintank" and "mainassist" roles.
-Fix for a bug that caused some ATA settings to be cleared when changing other interface settings without having opened ATA's config panel during the current session.
-Fixed a few typos.

1.0 (1-27-2010):
-You can now have up to 30 macros.
-Fixed the "default" button not resetting all the options.
-Added "Clear Binding" button.

0.1 B10:
-Added an option to suppress error text ("You aren't in a group.", "There is no tank.").
-Added an option to run the macro when called even if there is not a tank (replaces !t with blank space).
-Added a button to bind a key to the macro rather than using the /click command.

0.1 B9:
-Redesign, see the info page.

0.1 B8:
-Check for changes occasionally as well as on events.

0.1 B7:
-Bug fix.

0.1 B6:
-Added some customization options to the top of the .lua file.

0.1 B5:
-Fix for rarely leaving duplicate bindings.
-Allows using a macro (ATA_Temp) instead of a binding (see description).
-Registers PLAYER_ROLES_ASSIGNED in addition to PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED

0.1 B4:
-Let's try it this way...

0.1 B3:
-Bug fixes

0.1 B2:
-Bug fixes

I realize that the addon is not picking up tanks when zoning into instances sometimes. I'm trying to figure out what event is getting missed. Will get it fixed as soon as I can.

I'll have to agree with Akryn on that. Although I will add your suggestion to my list of possible future features, the main point in ATA is to have an easy way for lazy people like me to be able to assist random group tanks.

I'm not aware of anyone that uses action buttons for /assist so I'm not sure what the value in adding that feature would be. Profiles, however, is something I'm looking into.

Thanks for the feedback. The two addons you mentioned do a lot more than ATA does. Maybe that's the direction the addon will go in the future; but I wanted to mention why I didn't write it that way:

Integrating with the macro system and allowing arbitrary tokens for different units make the addon more feature-rich but also more complex to maintain; and they increase the risk that it will break when WoW gets updated. Integrating with the built-in macro system especially does this, and IMO has very minimal benefit since most people just keybind the addon's macros anyway.

Would it not be better having a 'Create Macro'-button which creates a macro that gets dynamically updated, much in the same way as TyraMagicMacros/MTarget worked? You could then also have a menu-item in the dropdown for units that allowed you to set the various variables manually.

Cool! I've uploaded a 1.1.5 version bumped to 4.3. With the new LFR option I'm hoping to update it in the near future to automatically detect if you're in a raid or party and switch macros accordingly.

I'm not currently having any issues with ATA and 4.2 other than the TOC version. What is it not doing?

I have it bound to Shift-F and use "/assist !t" in the configuration.

Re: 4.2

I don't play WoW anymore (since WotLK) so I can't update it. I would be happy to give control of the project to anyone who wants to update it though.

<edit: apparently it's actually working, so deleting the rest of this>
