O-Wheely! - Buffs and Macros on your Mousewheel!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

O-Wheely! - Buffs and Macros on your Mousewheel
Version 1.02
by <Damage Inc> of (EU)Draenor - email damageinc [at] theedgeofthevoid.com

What does O-Wheely! do?

Buffs!
Rolling your mousewheel will intelligently buff you, your target and nearby members of your party/raid automatically.

Macros!
When no buffs are needed, or in-combat, macros can be defined on mousewheelup/down.

BuffReminders!
O-Wheely reminds you about missing buffs in the standard UI error frame
(where messages like "Out of Range" and "You can't do that yet" normally appear)
so you don't forget to buff yourself, your target, your party or your raid

Camera Zoom!
Camera-zoom still works too, just hold the rightmousebutton when scrolling


What Buffs does O-Wheely! remind me about/cast?

Self Buffs
O-Wheely! remembers your last Blessing,Aura,Aspect,Mage Armor,Warlock Armor,Shaman WeaponBuffs and Rogue Poisons,
reminds you when they expire and will recast them when you roll the mousewheel

Party/Raid Buffs
O-Wheely! checks nearby party/raid members, reminds you when they need one of your buffs and casts them when you roll the mousewheel
Group buffs are used (if you have reagents) so long as at least 4 players are in range/need the buff.
Single-target buffs are used otherwise - so no wasting reagents on latecomers/when rebuffing after deaths etc.

Situational Buffs
O-Wheely! will remember when you cast certain spells on yourself or party/raid members, will remind you when they expire and recast them when you roll the mousewheel.
Self-Buffs are remindered/recast until you cancel an active buff (even after logout)
Buffs cast on others are remindered/recast until you leave party/raid or logout.
Note: "/ow sreset" clears all situational non-self-buffs (at the request of raiders!)

Hunters
Mousewheeling toggles between combat and runspeed Aspects.

Paladins
Mousewheeling will enable Crusader Aura when mounted and your last Aura when dismounted.

Full details of the buffs cast for your class appears on the Interface/Options screen (/ow)


What Macros does O-Wheely! cast?

Use "/ow macro" (or Interface/Addons/O-Wheely!/Macro Configuration) to access the macro configuration screen.
There are presets available for most classes or you can enter you own macros for MouseWheelUp and MouseWheelDown.
These will be called when there are no buffs required or when you're in-combat.

Note:
If no macro is defined, the following spells will be cast in-combat.
Paladins (MouseWheelDown): Last non Crusader Aura (Self)
Hunters (MouseWheelDown): Last non-runspeed Aspect (Self)


Getting Started
The first time you play a character, cast your favourite buffs
(Paladin: Blessing/Aura, Hunters: Aspect, Mage: Shield, Warlock: Armor, Shaman: WeaponBuffs, Rogue: Poisons).
O-Wheely! will then reminder/recast these anytime you're not "resting" (e.g. in a city).


FAQ
Q - Is this an ACE/ACE2/ACE3 Mod?
A - No - partly because I'm not familiar with ACE and partly because it wouldn't greatly benefit from ACE's framework/libraries.
It's very low-cpu and low-memory - it typically uses < 60kb memory and almost no CPU.

Q - I'd like to customise the buffs I'm giving.
A - I've tried VERY hard to make buffing so simple that no configuration is required.
If you have a suggestion as to how O-Wheely! could buff 'smarter' do please let me know.

Q - I'd rather not use Group Buffs in some situations - how can I?
A - Either carry no reagents (lol!) OR hold LeftMouseButton when scrolling to prevent any group buff being used


Credits
This mod began life as the excellent AddOnTemplate by BelleBoom

Credit also due to Aeldra - the author of SmartBuff - without that I'd never have been inspired to create this!

Thanks to Aegwynn - official beta tester and guinea pig!!

Common/Known Issues
Q - (Paladins and Hunters) In combat, mousewheeldown toggles my Aura/Aspect on and off - why?
A - You entered combat with Crusader Aura/Aspect of the Cheetah/Pack so the mousewheel was setup to replace it.
I can't change this until combat ends and buffing yourself with an Aura/Aspect you already have cancels it!

Q - (Paladins and Hunters) MousewheelDown isn't removing my mount/runspeed Aura/Aspect in combat
A - If you've created a macro/chosen a preset for MouseWheelDown, that will overrides this function.
To restore it, select "Do Nothing" for MouseWheelDown.

Q - I've cancelled a situational buff but O-Wheely! keeps rebuffing me with it.
A - You need to cast and then immediately cancel a buff for O-Wheely to stop rebuffing it automatically.

Q - Why isn't Shift/Control/Alt+Mousewheeling working?
A - It's possible you have specifically bound these to other functions
To check what bindings exist ow checkbindings" - a list of any mousewheel bindings will be shown.
Shift+Mousewheel is bound BY DEFAULT to Action Bar Paging
CTRL+Mousewheel is bound BY DEFAULT to Vehicle Control in WOTLK
You can override these bindings by selecting Shift/Ctrl/Alt options on the "/ow" options screen
You do NOT need to remove the camera bindings - I override these automatically.

Q - Why don't [button:1] modifiers work in OWheely macros (/ow macro)
A - WoW discards mousebutton information when you scroll the wheel - sorry about that...

Q - I've NOT selected CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+mousewheel (/ow) but it still works when I hold CTRL and scroll the wheel - why?
A - If you have NOTHING bound to CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+Mousewheel WOW just ignores the modifier entirely.

Q - I've selected CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+mousewheel (/ow) and macros with modifiers like [mod:alt] don't work?
A - WoW discards modifiers if they're specifically bound.
To use them, uncheck CTRL/ALT/SHIFT in "/ow" and remove any keybindings shown in "/ow keybindings".

Paladin 2H and Shaman Shield 'tests' require localisation to work

Removed some old 'backwards compatibility' code (0.7 and earlier)

Added 'example' macro to make it easier to start entering your own macros...

0.94 Pre-Release
O-Wheely!s Mousewheel-bindings are now 'temporary' - which means default bindings will be untouched if you ever uninstall/disable O-Wheely! (how dare you!!)
Existing Users MAY need to reinstate Camera Zoom, Actionbar Shifting and Vehicle Controls (WOTLK BETA) to their default values just this once.
Added 'SHIFT' 'CTRL' and 'ALT' checkboxes to the "/ow" screen so that users can choose whether to bind these combinations to O-Wheely! or to their default functions

Code heavily rewritten to reduce reliance on globals

0.93 Pre-Release
Fixed an issue when cancelling situational self-buffs
Added DeathKnight 'Bone Shield' to Situational Buffs (just to keep them busy until I've played some more!)

To reset Party/Raid (and NOT self) Situational Buffs - type "/ow sreset"
Removed dependency on MINIMAP - removed all 'hidden' button cosmetic code...
/ow macros will now cast when mounted - to avoid dismounting use [nomounted] in your macros (all presets use this)

Paladins: Righteous Fury is now a situational buff (by request of the "Paladins in cloth" community) :)

Shamans: Dual-wield Weaponbuffs now correctly supported.

Rogue Poisons are now remembered when applied, we will buffremindered when they expire and are reapplied by mousewheeling.

If you enjoy O-Wheely!'s functionality as I do ... I uploaded a (hopefully) fixed version which you can find here or in the "optional files" tab.

New thing: I'm finding it loses the macros on switching specs. (Hm, okay, sometimes only.)

I LOVE this addon, by the way. I can't say that enough. Is there any way you could update the version over at curse so that my curse updater stops barking at me? Thanks so much, kerrang.

Sorry for the late reply (this place won't 'remember me' and I login less these days)...

I've been through the code removing every possibly way to reset macros, so if you have the latest version (delete the directory - re-download it) any loss of macros is down to another addon and/or WOW itself.

One 'solution' is to backup your settings and/or make the settings file read-only of course

Do you use things like /console reloadui or /rl in-game? - they can cause data loss - esp. on older/slower PCs...

Otherwise I'm at a loss...

Horses for courses I guess

I can't "support" your trackpad's way of doing things tho - I can only respond to the click events WOW receives (mousebuttons, scrollwheel actions etc.) but OWheely will certainly work if you 'scroll' your trackpad just as if you're 'scrolling' a mousewheel.

Whether this will make any sense/be practical to do is another thing entirely

Since when? Imps have been buffable with PW:F for a LONG time (most Warlocks moan endlessly if you DON'T do it in fact)????

I've not played a Priest or Warlock for a while so I may have missed this change but it seems an odd thing to do...

p.s. IIRC you can't buff Imps when they're phase-shifted but that's beyond the scope of something like OWheely to account for - Warlocks want pets buffed they need to remember not to phase-shift them

The entire idea of OWheely hinges on the idea of a scrollwheel - and one which is under your finger whilst you're controlling your character at that!

I'd suggest you get a mouse

But i really want an easy buff add that uses little mem and cpu. XD

Updated 1.02 - only changes are

Shamans will no longer weaponbuff their shields after respeccing (sorry about that - thanks to Renorrak to helping the penny drop!)

The test for this - and the test for Paladins using 2H weapons - is location specific (e.g. French/German/Spanish clients require a localised version of the test).

Note to potential localisers: Most of the localisation file is 'cosmetic' and can be ignored. Only the Shaman Weaponbuff translation, Rogue "Poison" and Item Types (top of the file) are needed to make the addon work in other clients.

I check you're not using an Offhand weapon - evidently the shield is considered a weapon for that purpose - no idea how to stop that but I'll sort something out ASAP and post a fix...

The downside of not playing every class y'see

Firstly I'd make sure you have the latest version installed (e.g. delete the old one first) - the single commonest addon issue is files not being overwritten on upgrade.

You also may need to logout/console reloadui after you respec to force the API to report your weapon status correctly (I noticed an issue with this with Death Knights changing weapons/runesmithing - may apply to Shamans too)

If that doesn't work then it's time a Shaman took a look at the code - they can test it against their own respecs instead of me wasting a tonne of Gold on it perhaps
I have over written owheely files many times, all with the new ones with no succes, it works at the start, but then it breaks, no error reported, just starts spamming <name> needs Windfury weapon offhand, even though i have a shield on, i might take a look at the code if i get time, other then that its a great addon, great that i can still use the macros in combat, good idea!
