Jul 29, 2006@teedog:Posted in: Raid AddOns
1: easy enough, will provide an option to output the result to raid/party/local
2: I'll think about that
3: That would be much spam if there are more users in the raid with xrs and that option enabled ...
Will definately look at the afk status. About the spacer, is there already something ingame which can be used as this, like a line or anything else?
Mouseover will be implemented in one of the next versions. You'll see detailed information about every member which is represented by a bar.
Jul 28, 2006That's what I'm going to do.Posted in: Raid AddOns
Btw., are there any suggestions for the addon currently? I know the buff icons aren't in yet, and I have to wait since SEEAura is converted to Ace 2, but maybe there are other things you'd like to see in there?
Jul 27, 2006If someone is soulstoned isn't complicated to find out. But how long is difficult, the one with the SS needs to have an addon like oRA to report that.Posted in: Raid AddOns
FYI, I implemented yesterday the buff part where a Raid Leader (A or L) can report the missing buffs into the raid chat. The visual part will hopefully follow tomorrow because it is a bit more complicated, since I have to watch the performance ... The buff option is available through a button besides the name "XRaidStatus". Have fun with it :)
Jul 26, 2006XRaidStatus 1.11.1Posted in: Raid AddOns
I started developing the new version some days ago, so it is mainly in an alpha state. Every suggestion and bug report is welcome, so I can improve the addon.
The main concept of the addon is similar to the Raid Status Frame from CTRA, but this is completely written by myself.
XRaidStatus is a tool for raid leaders who don't want to use raid frames because they aren't in need of them (melees, caster etc.). It shows 6 different types of bars:
(Type 7 is only a placeholder to group your bars). You can create a bar, select a type, and add classes to it. It has a configuration system so you can save the bars with a specified name and load them later again (useful at bosses who need a different monitoring).
Colors can be changed, too, for the bar, the bartext, the main backgroundcolor, main bordercolor and last but not least, the color of the "XRaidStatus " string. You have full control over how you want it to look like, and I'm interested in how your bars look, so post a screenshot once you're done setting up all bars and colors :)
As every bar is created directly in lua, there is no limit (only the wow window ;) )
Configuration can be called with a right-click on every bar. Global configuration is accessed through right-click on the main window. There are currently 4 textures provided with XRS to paint your bars differently. The global update rate timer defines the update time of the bars (the lower, the more often they are updating but using more cpu power, so try to find a value that fit your needs). Every bar can have a background bar so you see the maximum of the bar better.
A special raid leader menu will show up if you have 'L' or 'A' in a Raid. It is the icon in the topright corner of the frame. Currently there are 2 options. Buff check will print out the selected buffs which are missing in your raid to the raid chat (5 buffs supported: sta, ai, motw, spi and shadow protection). Ready check only calls the ready check from wow. The buff check can be called through a key binding, too, for easier usage.
Some screenshots with a little configuration:
As I said in the old thread, the buff part isn't in yet, but will follow soon. Other helpful additions will come too, so I hope that every raid leader has a perfect view on his raid.
Special thanks go to the people at the wowace irc channel who are answering my stupid questions ;)
Feb 4, 2006Ok, forget my question. I know that it can be done with a simple addon. Don't know why I asked about it. My main question was about Visor, and if it's easy to set up (if Visor can import such files).Posted in: General Chat
Feb 4, 2006Before I ask my question, I'll give you a link:Posted in: General Chat
My question now is: How can I include this great looking graphic file in wow "without" Discord Art. I really don't want to use it. Besides, an addon only for one graphic file would be a little too much. Is there a way that visor can import this or an easy xml file? I hope somebody can tell me an answer :D

1. Seeing MT/MA targets. If someone sets that up in CTRA does it work in Xraid? Would I need to set them up myself?
xraid works slightly different, everyone can set the mts on their own.

2. Healing mana conserve - this can be worked around I think using other mods.
Yeah, there are already ace mods out there which are working just great, pick one of these.

3. /raready checks. Do they work? Could be worked around.
the whole concept of ctra is in using a seperate channel where some information can be exchanged. i never will include something like this, because it will bloat the code too much.

4. Boss alerts. I'm guessing these aren't built in? CT has seperated out the boss mods into a seperate module. Can these be "borrowed" and implemented into Xraid?
mh, i don't know if it would work if i include the boss mods into xr. but in my opinion, it should be a standalone (ace) addon.
the reason i developed xraid was to have a raid addon that's easy to set up and runs very smooth. things that bloat the code won't be included in the future.
