AlarBGHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.3.11
by: alar [More]

Assistant for battlefields
Displays a small window with status information.


NOTE: In Alterac Valley, bosses' health depends on synchronization. If you are the only user of ABH in your BG you cant have any info other than what is already available to you, so only if you are really near to one of them (by near I mean just outside or inside the bunker) you can see the data changing even if you are not targeting the boss

Arathi Basin
Left clicking a base button asks for help, Right clicking inform that the base is now safe
Clicking on "Ally/Horde wins in .." line, announce it in chat
Same for the "We need .. bases to win"
Time left and bases needed will be meaningfull onoy when at least one base has been taken by horde or ally
Besides each contested nodes you will see the time left to cap.

Warsong Gulch
Shows 2 big button with carrier's names. Click to target, shift-click to announce.
Extending the window (click on the >> button) discovers some more button. They work with the left-click ask for help, right-click announce safe rule.

Alterac Valley
Objectives' names works with the left-click ask for help, right-click announce safe rule.
Besides each contested nodes you will see the time left to cap. Clicking on time will announce it in chat.

Common feature:
Extimated resurrection timer. I need some feedback on this one, cause it looks like the interval is not exactly 30 seconds.. or maybe some lag is involved.. I hadnt time to figure the right timer, so I use a 30 seconds cyclle starting from your first resurrection inside a BG


Planned feature:
Syncronization: make things so when you join a bg, you can get timers from other users of my mod. Basic code is already in, i just need to test it a bit more

Your latest version (4.3.2.2) seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks again! Sorry to be such a bother, but this is a great mod and I'm glad you could take the time to keep it going!

Just one question. Is there a way to disable the Lib.BattleScan spam in chat. For me it is way too much and is interfering with more important things like communications.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
May I have an example ot that spam? LibBattlescan should only spam extended info when in "developement mode", i.e. run on my pc with certain switch enabled. I for sure could have made some mistakes when discriminating on it but seeing an example of the actual messaging would be a great help

The latest update introduced the two errors listed below. Also from some limited experience, the update has completely broken the mod. Its a shame as this used to be a really great addon. If anyone knows of a suitable replacement, I'm all ears.

regarding the WSG rez timer, I have taken a large sample set and what I am finding is that using a 31.5 second timer holds very close to true for WSG. My data points are within a couple of seconds of this, and some of this could be local issues (latency) and my stopwatch not being 100% super-exact on the start time. I suppose one could even re-synchronize it each time you die.

Any way to put this into the addon? Yours is the only one I have found which even discusses it.

Thanks

Current is 3.5.16

The main site for alarbghelper is www.curse.com, the current version is 3.5.16 and I am almost sure the charbox thing has been fixed (dependes on the ace 2 version embedded in alarbghelper)
ANyway, I rechecked and looks like 3.5.16 is the release here, too.
Or are you talking about WOW version? In Italy we are running 3.3.3
Anyway installing an updated ace2 should help

Version for 3.3.5

Hi,

Thanks for making this mod - I use it often. Anyway, with 3.3.5 today, I started getting this error:
Error: AceTab-2.0: Cannot register frame "ChatFrameEditBox"; it does not exist
AddOn: Ace2
File: AceConsole-2.0.lua
Line: 2582
Count: 1
...Ons\AlarBGHelper\Libs\Ace2\AceTab-2.0\AceTab-2.0.lua:338: in main chunk


But I am not sure if the problem with you or what. Any help would be great. Thank you!

Or if this isn't being supported, anyone know any other good mods?

----

Okay, looks like it is an ACE 2 issue. I had to get that and clean out some of the old ACE 2 stuff out of some other addons.. which is odd, but it seemed to want and load those.

Auto Join

Is this still being supported?

The auto join does not work! I can imagine Blizzard would code it so it can't happen. But if I can get a confirmation, I could learn to live without it.

I'll dig around your code and see where I can change the values, when I get them correct I'll post back here with the appropriate values.
That would be awesome

Going to run AV right now to try and catch it.
Ran it, not a single error.
If you have a standalone AlarLib, please delete it. The right version is the one embedded in AlarBGHelper.
The versions I tested with are:
AlarBGHelper 3.5.7 r 35
AlarLib-2.0.90127
dowloaded here right now
