Bumping a thread after only 2 posts have been made to it is pointless and irritating. Don't do it in the future, and if you want help making code modifications, you need to post the actual code you're trying to change, and the changes you tried that didn't work, and the text of any error messages that appear in BugSack (install it if you don't have it).
1. It's been 4 weeks
2. I have no idea what code I need to change, hence my question.
3. The change I tried was the last one posted here: http://www.wowuigallery.com/topic/skada-help it worked until a couple of months ago, when there was a change to Skada making it "obsolete"
1. Irrelevant. Unless someone is running at 640x480 resolution, they're going to see your post even if they click "Last post" instead of "First unread post". It's the same principle as bumping a thread because it's listed as the third of 25 topics instead of the first.
2. You said you used to be able to add a particular piece of code in a particular place, implying that you had done it successfully in the past. How did you do that if you have no idea what code to change?
Line 308: bar:SetFont(nil,nil,"OUTLINE")
Line 311: bar:SetFont(nil,nil,"PLAIN")
Line 422: g:SetFont(p.barfontpath or media:Fetch('font', p.barfont), p.barfontsize, p.barfontflags)
Line 434: fo:SetFont(p.title.fontpath or media:Fetch('font', p.title.font), p.title.fontsize, p.title.fontflags)
I've tried replacing "PLAIN" with "OUTLINE", replace p.barfontflags/p.title.fontflags with "OUTLINE", even adding it to the end there.
I'm not sure if this is just a single person problem or if it's a problem that i haven't seen reported yet, but whenever i go to move skada it auto aligns itself to the right side of the screen and up just a little bit, and the only way to get the displays in the correct location is to re-size and keep re-sizing to make it wider til the left side of the bars are in the right place then move the right side, but the moment i click the title bar it zips back to the right side of my screen, I've tried locking the bars, that only works til i reload or log out. then everything is overlapping and jumbled
Skada addon is faulty as it dont count all the damage a dk does. When most of the damage a dk does is from burst. It does allot but skada only shows the weapon damage witch is low, so it needs to be remade so it count all damage not just direct weapon damage.
Would it be possible to have 2 different window sizes. One for the main window that shows your dps. Then you can have a wider size for when you dig deeper for info.
I like my dps window to be small, but skada needs a fairly wide window when you look at things like deaths. So when you click down to see deaths or spells etc. The skada window would widen. If thats too hard maybe have it break out into a separate window like recount does.
This is already reported as ticket 293. There's a fix included in the ticket (a one-line change to :FixPets), but given how long it's been since any tickets were fixed, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it to be applied and released, it doesn't seem to be under active maintenance anymore. Best to make the change locally.
I would like to know if you could somehow implement tracking of the buff ancestral vigor. At the moment you can track the buff uptime but you cannot see how much health it added to the raid overall. It is difficult to compare shamans with other healing classes that do have some sort of passive healing buff they add to whomever they heal.
Since Blizzard doesn't track absorbs I use Skada to track my healing in BG's and arena. However, I constantly forget to reset it each time I enter and the 'reset on enter instance' doesn't work at all. (I use total to track since you gain/lose combat all the time so I need to reset)
Can I mod Skada to reset or prompt for a reset upon entering an arena/bg?
