it seems like checking this out of the repository isn't giving you a working addon at all.
Since you changed the structure to sepereat wotlk and bc stuff there is no reference to the wotlk/bc stuff anymore and there are no debuffs shown at grid->status->raiddebuff or in grid itself
normal downloads works fine, just wanted to let you know
Couldn't 99% of the stuff be autolearned by just examining who casts a buff? Check targets / mouseovers - if it's a boss level mob, learn its name. Then when you scan buffs, check if it's cast by a known boss.
You could of course still add new buffs to the list of configurable buffs so that people can turn them on/off.
Couldn't 99% of the stuff be autolearned by just examining who casts a buff?...
I think that's a good idea. The big reason for the current scheme is the classification burden of GridStatusRaidDebuff. In Grid2StatusRaidDebuffs it works off a single spellId so such a scheme would give good results.
There would still need to be a way to prioritize and / or ignore debuffs. You would not want a raid wide aoe debuff to obscure the "dot o' deth" that is on some specific person.
At that point some easy reporting scheme for new bosses in the options UI would make adding debuffs easier as well.
Yeah you still need to be able to configure learned debuffs on/off. And when the author learns of a debuff that should be default off (raidwide aoe shit like you talked about), it's still possible to push out a version with that debuff defaulting to off.
I'm just thinking that the autolearning feature would make it so much ... well.. userfriendlier for those of us being early into new encounters =)
Yeah, I am not fond of all the manual stuff going on during this 2 month roll out of Coliseum with up to 4 separate sets of debuffs. Any ideas on where to steal good boss detection code / a lib? Anyone want to volunteer for this?
Current builds of GSRD seem to be totally broken?
The separate modules complain about the global object 'GridStatusRaidDebuff' not being there, and rightfully so, core.lua is missing quite a lot of code... What happened? ;o
I'm using latest GridStatusRaidDebuff and can no longer right click on my grid Icon for managin/changing. Can only left click to bring up the central menu system that I find very clunky to use. If I remove GridStatusRaidDebuff I can once again right click.
Here's the exact error I get when attempting to right click on the grid config on FuBar
