Spooner
Version: 1.5
by: mikma [More]
Spooner checks the LFD every 5 seconds (when enabled) and alarms you if there's a Satchel of Exotic Mysteries available.

Provides a large text on screen + LDB feed.

Optional features:
* Pop the LFD window open for you if your rolecheck matches the reward.
* Secret guild broadcast for other possible addon users.

Slashcommand '/spooner' allows you to toggle features on/off.
1.5:
* LFG popup fix, honestly!

1.4:
* Line 179 bugfix.

1.3:
* RegisterAddonMessagePrefix was missing, broadcast wasn't working.

1.2:
* Alarm text frame is now visible after locking + next login.

1.2b:
* Spooner.lua:75: attempt to perform arithmetic on global 'total' (a nil value) -fix

1.1:
* Satchel check function now reacts into event instead of timer. Timer still makes the event fire tho!
* Spooner alarm text frame will now stay hidden after reload.
* Added the missing text for lock -slashcommand.

1.0:
* Release
Optional Files (0)

Sound alarm

Hey, thanks for this little genius addon Untill I installed it, I had no idea that satchel is available soo often and I have missed probably hundreds of satchels without it
Anyway, can you add a sound notificaation except the textual info and LFG window auto-opening? I'm often away from computer with sound off while camping rares - NPC_Scan has option to unmute sound just when its alarm goes off when a rare mob has been spotted. Similar feature for Spooner would be a great addition!

I know that's the opposite of what most people want (getting rid of minimap herpes in favor of panels)
but I'm one of those endangered species that don't use panels.
Yeah, sorry about that, my bad, fixed version will be available soonish.

I'm having problems seeing what are the benefits that minimap icon brings in?

I finally broke down and used this because it's such a nice idea

I don't actually do the LFD but knowing "I could if I wanted the satchel" gives me a warm feeling

Edit: changing the relevant check to this seems to fix it
Code:
if SpoonerDB.popup and (forTank and roleTank) or (forHealer and roleHealer) or (forDamage and roleDamage) then
I guess it was missing some parentheses the other way but this makes more sense to me
since it won't even check roles if user has selected not to have a popup.

Oh my, I didn't realise this was Mikma's addon! 'Tis an honour!

Thanks for the new version, no longer do I get hundreds of errors when simply enabling the update. Unfortunately I've not actually had the satchel available for tanking yet, so been unable to test the functionality!
