1.2.2-beta-1 has updated preset groups, and should no longer have a warning about that Worgen ability (it'll start working in 4.0.3/Cataclysm though). Let me know if you have any trouble with that release.
Yeah, the easiest way for users to configure it is with names rather than SpellIDs, so that's probably going to stay the way it is for now, although it'd be nice to have the option of using SpellIDs to distinguish ambiguous names.
But that's probably not a trivial change and I'm really just doing bugfix/compatibility updates at this point, since I don't play myself anymore. An overhaul into Auracle 2.0 to add this and other features isn't out of the question, but it's not currently on the radar either.
New features are on hold at the moment, since I don't really play anymore; I'm pretty much just fixing bugs and maintaining compatibility with new WoW patches.
I ever return to playing WoW myself I might return to more active development. In the mean time, if you (or anyone) would like to add this (or any other) feature yourself, I'd be happy to accept patches and work with you to get them merged into the official release.
After a break from using the addon for a few months I'm finding the new additions pretty impressive, nice job. What are the chances of adding more units that can be watched?, namely party members (which would be awesome for arenas).
I would like to do this, but doing it in a not-annoying way will take some work. I don't want to simply add all the party and arena unitids, because then you have to create and maintain 4-5 separate windows, one for each such unit, with (presumably) exactly the same trackers, and that would be super annoying. I'd rather have you set up one "prototype" party window (or several, with different visibility options) and then have Auracle use that template for each of the 4 separate party-unit windows.
The best thing is to file a request for this on the ticket tracker, so others can vote on it and it doesn't get lost. :)
With the last two versions, Im getting a whole slew of labels missing (67 LUA errors) from the localization files (PRESETS, STUN, BUFFS_BY_TYPE, etc.). Is there a beta of the localization file I can grab from the repository or are the labels just not complete.
Turns out, I'm a nub and forgot to import them to the WoWAce localization tool. They should be in 1.0.2 (for enUS anyway).
Beta 1.0.1 is now available. The main addition is presets, which are just buttons in the Add Tracker... section that create pre-configured trackers, according to various useful groups.
There are almost definitely some (de)buffs that are missing from their appropriate group, or are in the wrong group, etc, so please have a look at the categories that you know and care about, and make sure all the appropriate things are there.
And a reminder about talents: Auracle does not scan talents, so if a (de)buff only has some effect when talented (lots of Paladin stance-auras are like this, but also Moonkin Faerie Fire, etc), it is impossible for Auracle to know whether the aura it sees was cast by someone with that talent or not. Consequently there is an "Assume talented" checkbox along with the presets, which will either include those talented-only auras in their respective preset groups or not, depending on your preference. Either way Auracle will sometimes be wrong about these auras, so it's a question of which side you want to err on.
how do i get icons to appear for spells/effects that i dont personally generate?
It shouldn't matter who applied the aura -- if Auracle is detecting it and showing the proper colors/timer/spiral, then it should also be getting the correct icon texture from the game API. Whether it shows this texture on the tracker itself depends on your settings, so make sure the "Autoupdate" option is checked in the "Icon" tab of the trackers' settings.
Another problem I noticed with r53: all the windows/trackers are reset once I reload UI. I deleted SavedVars (not a problem since I only have a couple of trackers defined for focus), then I defined a new tracker, reload UI, tracker gone. Window/tracker styles are still there, is just the actual trackers/windows that don't seem to be persistent.
Thanks, this led me to a bug that might be to blame.
