Van32's CombatMusic
Version: 5.2.3
by: Vandesdelca32 [More]
About
Van32's CombatMusic, or just CombatMusic is an addon that you can use to bring that RPG feel back to your World of Warcraft experience! It helps you by automatically playing music you choose when you get into fights ingame!



Important!
This addon is not distributed with any music files, as it would be copyright infringment. You will have to provide your own music following the instructions found in the README


News
CombatMusic 5 is out! If you've used CombatMusic prior to version 5, you're going to need to reconfigure the addon because a lot has changed since 4.6. Go and check out the README for information on the new setup!

FAQ

My CombatMusic doesn't play songs when I enter Combat! HALP!
  • All right, did you read the README first?
  • Check to make sure your songs are set up properly. You have to put them in Interface/Music, not in the CombatMusic folder, and they need to be named properly, or CombatMusic won't see them!
  • If they still don't work, submit a ticket!

Are you going to add mounted/per-zone music options?
  • No. The addon is called CombatMusic. To have that would not make sense. I want to keep it simple for the end-user (That would be you.) to set up and use. Having to add the files, and rename them for all the zones is too much.

Why 'Interface/Music' and not 'Interface\Addons\Van32s_CombatMusic\'?
  • Because?
  • No really. I took into consideration the Curse Client deleting all of your music files every time I updated the addon. Which it would do, if I stored them in it's directory.
Features

Overview

CombatMusic is designed, first and foremost, to play music when your character is in combat. It can do this in a variety of ways, with as many songs as you like.

The add-on is designed to tell the difference between a monster that is a boss, or not, and can play music appropriate to the encounter. It will pick songs randomly from your list of songs, or you can tell it to pick specific songs, it doesn't matter.

The main thing is; there's no playlists to set up. There are no extraneous UI's and EXE files you need to run to set it up, making it easier to set up.

In Combat

CombatMusic, when you enter combat, will first check to see what you or your focus has targeted. This is how it knows if you're fighting a boss or not. It checks those two, against a variety of different things, starting with your custom "BossList", a list of NPC names, and music, that you've set up for it. If it doesn't find it there, It'll check to see if it should play something from the "Bosses" folder, or from the "Battles" folder instead.

After Combat

After Combat, one of three things can happen:

If you lost, CombatMusic will play the Game Over song.
If it was a boss, it'll play your fanfare!
Otherwise, it'll just fade out the music.
Other uses

CombatMusic won't just play the victory fanfare when you beat a boss, it'll play it for you when you level up as well... It'll also play the game over song whenever your character dies, not just during a fight... (My main's heard it more than 2000 times, if that's any reference.)

Version 4

Finally uploaded version 4 to WoWInterface!

The addon can now discern between your target and your focus' target, so you can choose which one it should prefer for boss checks!
All the settings can now be changed through slash commands!
Lots of efficiency improvements!

Be sure to check out the new features of CombatMusic!

It actually already does, and considers a PvP encounter to be the same as a boss encounter, it is unfortunately not working as intended though.

This is an extremely cool idea =)

I have a question - does boss music play for 5-man bosses, or only for boss/skull-level mobs?

Thanks!

I already tried turning down the volume, which works like 50% of the time, but it also sometimes suddenly starts the WoW music in normal combat (I only have Combat Music in boss fights) and keeps it at maximum volume so that I have to turn it down manually again and also it wont fade out Combat Music anymore.
This, I can do. It won't be hard at all to implement, seeing as there's already the built in functionality. The addon just requires a few tweaks to make it work. ( I am actually adding this feature now, expect to see it in 3.4.2)

This, I have also noticed with Hussam on Heroic since the patch.. For some reason, being picked up, or thrown against a wall makes you leave combat. I wish there was something I could do about it, but I cannot.

Unfortunately not. As far as I know WoW still doesn't return when the song has finished playing... I'd have no way to tell it was done, unless the length of the song was pre-programmed, and I want to steer away from that sort of thing, make it easier for users to set up, if you catch my drift.
