I know this is a stupid damned question, but I just started using this mod, and I am the raid leader. BW isn't turning on at all during a boss fight, and I can't quite figure out why. I am going into the menu, Loading the Karazhan Addons, and activating the boss mods. Nothing pops up for me, or my raid members, and I can't figure out why. I've used BW for a while, but never as the raid leader, so I know what I should be seeing ~.~
Sorry, I know this has to be an idiot question, but I've been tinkering with it, trying to figure it out. I have the latest version that was posted on 3/1/2007.
I don't know what the hell just happened, but after exploring all of these menus last night, thoroughly, and having nothing in the plugins folder, a lot of options just appeared for broadcasting and whatnot. I deleted, downloaded and reinstalled all of my addons, so maybe I had something that was conflicting before, or I just had a bad install of BW, because so many of these options that weren't in here before are in now. I have a raid tonight, if its still eph'd, I'll post again, but I may have just fixxed it myself ~.~
and yes, earlier i got no messages, no bars, nothin.
I'm having a similar problem, where BW won't announce anything or show bars on Nightbane. It worked fine on Prince, but when we tried Nightbane the last few days, didn't get anything. I made sure the Nightbane module was activated manually, and all the options checked, and announcing was enabled.. nadda. I figured it might not be getting activated because of the nature of how you start the fight, but still didn't get anything after enabling it manually. I'm tanking him too, so proximity is not an issue.
I tried Deadly Bossmods (La Vendetta) too, but for some reason couldn't get that to announce via /rw either (as leader or assist), although it did give me private messages and bars for certain events. Perhaps another mod is conflicting? All but 2 of my mods are Ace2, and I update them almost every day. I did a clean remove / reinstall of bigwigs (including saved variables) just to make sure, to no avail. I just don't have time to start from scratch and reconfigure every mod.. or enable mods 1 by 1 while doing a boss encounter to determine the cause.
P.S. Other mods / macros I use that have a /rw announce function work properly
I disabled the "Bossblock" option in oRA2 as well (found in oRA2 > Raidwarning) thinking that might be playing havok, but no luck with that either. I just noticed the "To Raid" option in that same menu, but the mouseover description says "Send RS message to Raid as well", and I'm not using the Old Style RS messages. I'm assuming by Raid it means raid chat anyway. I'll fiddle with it some more and try it again when the raid week starts over tomorrow.
Just from looking at that list, I would disable everything that hits the RW... I'm assuming TauntWarn does, and I'd start there for some gut feeling. If all else fails, start with disabling by halves to figure out were the conflict is.
i have the same problem.
i disabled all mods but still i haven't any bars.
when i make a lokal test the bars show up, but the anchor-test still won't work.
Do the bars need any dependence like the ora2-ready check (candybars imho)?
or am i totaly wrong?
I as well am getting the problem. Mods won't start up upon mousing over bosses, and when manually loaded nothing at all happens except for maybe the proximity monitor, if it's used on the specific boss fight. Also, upon defeating the boss, the mod will deactivate but won't play anything. When using the test option, absolutely nothing happens.
I just played around with some addon things, to turn on the BigWigs plugin addon, and to turn a few more things on (turned nothing off) that may have fixed it, but I highly doubt it. And I know this list is messy, just trying to get it as fast as I can.
Hmmm, strange...just deleting BigWigs from the AddOns folder, downloading/installing the latest version off of curse, then running the auto updater fixes the problem. Dunno what was causing it, but it's completely fixed now.
