I disagree. Either I missed some important customizations with the new combatlog or it's still far inferior to what Unilog was capable of.
What I can do with the new combatlog is define a filter that - say only shows all my spellcasts or incoming damage of some type. I can't make it filter specifically for my Aimed Shots or check who Shock Vortexed me on our last Council wipe.
In short the default combatlog offers some default filters to check or uncheck but doesn't allow to filter for literally any single ability by name. Also the interface is much more complicated than the intuitive excel-autofilter-like one of Unilog.
Also please correct me if I am wrong, but from what I've seen of the wow API it seems like it's possible for AddOns to access older combatlog messages without having to save them in its own tables via CombatLogSetCurrentEntry and CombatLogGetCurrentEntry. I didn't have the time to look into it myself so far and IÂ´m somewhat lacking the expertise to do GUIs (with or without ACE), but from a first glance it does look very doable but I guess I may have missed something important or someone else would have done such an AddOn long ago. ;)

Feb 12, 2010Sorry to necro this topic but just like the original poster IÂ´m interested in an addon that works like sws-unilog did. Does anyone know of or is someone interested in coding one?Posted in: Addon Ideas
Also I assume the reason why unilog was part of and required the sws damage meter is that most of the data it had to save to an table was the same. Keeping this in mind itÂ´s propably really wasteful to have one of those in addition to a damage meter. WouldnÂ´t it be feasible to code and recount (or similar damage meter) module for this purpose?
Sep 15, 2008Thanks for the quick reply. I already did post in that EJ thread, I just wanted to also ask here if there was a configuration option in place I just missed. As this does't seem to be the case - consider this a suggestion to Nymbia for a future WotLK version of Quartz. :)Posted in: General AddOns
Sep 15, 2008I'm using Quartz in the WotLK beta and so far it works really fine after I downloaded a new buff.lua from this thread at the EJ forum. Now there's one diffrence in behavior between that version and the one on live. If I turn on debuffs on my target on life it only shows those I cast myself - that is if I as a hunter cast a Hunter's Mark it's shown as a bar if on the other hand that other druid in my raid casts a Faery Fire there is no bar. Even if another hunter in my raid casts Hunter's Mark it's not shown as a bar (supposedly because Quartz doesn't have any duration information about it). This changed with WotLK and I assume it's because the client gives more feedback on debuff durations not because of the changed buff.lua.Posted in: General AddOns
Which leads me to my question. Even though it's a good change in principle, getting every single debuff on my target I'm loosing track of those I really care about - those I can cast and I'm responsible for. Is it possible to even now configure/change Quartz to only show my own debuffs or better only those I can cast (meaning I can also see that other hunter's Hunter's Mark) or even better filter them via black-/whitelist (meaning I can monitor a select few other debuffs I'm interested in)?
Any help is appreciated and my apoligies if this question/request has been answered before - I admit didn't read all the 70 pages of this thread.
Aug 22, 2007Would it be possible to enable logging by bosses instead of instances too? I'm using WWS and searching and splitting the log for my boss kills/tries is really annoying (for the client version that is). Now with logging only enabled at the bosses themselves I'd propably still have to split my logs manually, but it'd be much more convenient to do so.Posted in: General AddOns
Tracking when you engage a mob is gotta be possible somehow, as other addons (namely bossmods like BigWiggs) also do it.
Aug 19, 2007I'm using CorkFu this way for quite some time now and what is really annoying me is the fact that I can't filter by buffing range. Is there really no way to do this? And if not - is there a way contact the author with requests?Posted in: Addon Ideas
Aug 9, 2007_ForgeUser135783 posted a message on Official Threat-1.0 error reporting and discussion threadI searched the forum if this has already been reported but couldn't find anything. My apologies if I missed something.Posted in: Libraries
Yesterday we did Supremus and realized Omen doesn't catch the aggro reset when he changes from phase 2 back to phase 1.
Aug 8, 2007I wonder if it?s possible to set the maximum of the PitBull threatbar to something diffrent than 100%. As a ranged damage dealer I can go quite a bit over 100% without running in danger of grabbing aggro.Posted in: Unit Frames
Can I do this by just changing the Tag?
Jul 24, 2007Posted in: Unit FramesQuote from Midnight »
As a hunter I don't need to be able to see the raidframes all the time. With X-Perl I had the option to bind a key to toggle between showing and hiding the raidframes. I also had a keybind to switch between sorting by class and by group. Both of which are features I'm currently missing in PitBull (or is there already slash or script command to do this?).
Is there really no way to do the above explained? It'd really be appreciated.
Jul 23, 2007Great, thanks again for all the hints - now with the addition of the macro it's almost the same functionality as with my old RDX window. Only thing I'm still missing is the exclusion of players currently out of my buffing range. Kind of annoying to have a big buff reminding window in the middle of the screen while I'm in Shattrath and the rest of the group is already waiting at the instance entrance in netherstorm (or the other way round). Is there another option I'm missing to accomplish that with CorkFu in its current state?Posted in: Addon Ideas

Detach the tooltip - put it in a noticeable spot.
Well if I put it in a more noticable spot it?s propably gonna annoy me when I don?t need it (eg everyone is buffed).
The nice thing about my RDX solution was that it
a) Was very noticable when I needed it
b) easy to use to buff the people in need and
c) unobtrusive when I didn?t need it anymore
Tbh I prefer XRS over FuBar_CorkFu as it satisfies at least two of the above conditions.
Jul 15, 2007I tried FuBar_CorkFu now, but it only showing which buffs are missing in a pretty unobtrusive way isn?t really helping that much. I still have to deliberately look at my foobar to see if I have to buff someone.Posted in: Addon Ideas
I?m missing that big eye-catching window in the middle of the screen that tells me "My MotW just run out, please buff me now!" while also giving me the means to just that and make it disappear again.
Jul 11, 2007I'd like to see a feature to show a list of the various mobs on whose threatlist you are and how your threat relates to the others on that mobs threatlist. This would help immensly for multitanking where you don?t want to switch thru every single mob to see your threatlevel.Posted in: Raid AddOns
Jul 11, 2007_ForgeUser135783 posted a message on Official Threat-1.0 error reporting and discussion threadImp. Righteous Fury doesn's seem to be calculated correctly. I've been testing it with our Raid Prot Pala yesterday (me beeing Hunter). She accumulated some threat than I did some Auto Shots on our target to see when I'd get aggro. I usually did at around 260%. Once I've even been able to get to 286% of her threat without grabbing aggro as you can see on my screenshot.Posted in: Libraries
She said it's propably got something to do with (Imp.) Holy Shield too, but I can't really confirm or deny if that's the case though. We didn't run any more sophisticated tests checking this specifically.
