my guild and i have been updating this as often as possible, tonight we are on bloodboil, and still omen2 is so buggy its boarding on useless to us. I have some experience with mods and have done everything i can to get it working but im out of ideas.
the entire raid is on r67186
-only one tank is showing up at a time (many bosses require multiple tanks)
-most peoples TPS is showing at less than 500...waaaay off
-bloodboil in particular does a debuff which cause no threat to be generated by anyone for 20 seconds, this breaks omen2 for the duration of the fight
-most players cant see their own threat bar
-healer and aoe mode seem to be throughly broken
-overview mod shows players, but the data is incorrect, and is constantly "overwritten" by other bars, making it unreadable
-often times will not reset after a wipe.
all players are using the ost up to date ace and threatlib available to us.
don't get me wrong antriac, im a huge fan of omen, and i really like the idea of omen2...just atm...its not working = /
Our guild had exactly the same problem tonight on exactly the same boss, at the time we all had different versions running, we all updated and had the same version 67322, but still had strange aggro problems... hope you finda fix soon cause atm on some agro sensitive fights are pretty much impossible to attempt atm
Is there a Technical reason why older versions (as in versions since 2.4) are incompatible with each other? Even if the older persons threat is not 100% right its better to atleast get an idea then not to have anyone show up at all. Esp since omen is updated about once every hour now (or every 5 min, like tonight.....) and between the hour it seems to break compatiblity.
2: I use it alone mostly as I'm a hunter and like to track my threat vs. my pets so that I don't have to waste mana always feigning death. The old version did this pretty well. I know it's probably at the bottom of the list of things to get done, but it doesn't seem to track threat from the pet right now. I've reached 240% threat and still not pulled something off of my pet.
Do a little research. Blizzard completely changed the combatlog in 2.4, old versions of Omen are 100% broken. Antiarc is doing an amazing job getting it working again in next to no time, so sit tight.
Did you know that once upon a time people played without threat meters of any kind?
Yes I am aware that the combat system changed and that will have impacted on Omen. I am also aware that the Omen I was using prior to updating it seemed to be working. I agree, Antiarc is doing an amazing job with thios mod and I have never brought that into question. What I was asking for was (and only if possible?) A link to the most stable version so that Antiarc isn't bombarded by Bug posts.
I was one of those people who used to play without a Threat Meter, but as they mods evolved, so did peoples playstyles and the game itself to the point where Threat Meters are almost a must. Very few people would comfortably go back to pre-threat meter days by choice.
What's curious though, is why 2.4 is the exact time to do a full rewrite.
Wouldn't it have been faster to just make Omen1 compatible with 2.4, and then start development on a seperate Omen2 as replacement?
Obviously the author understands we appreciate the effort he puts into the project, but the way the conversion is handled is obviously causing a lot of problems.
something i noticed with the latest omen 67544 is that whenever someone has gotten the "insignificance" debuff from Bloodboil (BT) his threat nolonger updates when the debuff runs out. Rather important bug imo.
Who liked the original Omen? I for one liked it. There were so many reasons why I used it, why I switch from KLM, and why I desire that functionality in Omen2. I find myself in the majority it seems in this wish, yet I seem to have a deeper understanding of the situation then the childish posts attacking its functionality. Blizzard changed the Combatlog. for the better I think. Omen uses the combat log. I have not coded Omen so I have no clue how much of a rewrite is involved in changing it to still work in the 2.4 patch. Since it is not working, for me yet, I must assume that the changes are larger that any one of us would have liked. The additional changes proposed in Omen2 have my mouth watering to try them once they work. I wish the coder all the best in making them work in a time frame that I hope is short and soon. To all other who are crying about it not working..... well what can I say. make your own threat meter :-) I would love to comment on its glowing success and rapid turn around when Blizzard changeds the rules.
