Is there anything that announces the upcoming cooldown in raid/party chat?
like fearward. I would like to announce in raid chat :
"Fear ward ready in X sec"
Would also like to be able to stagger the announcements. 50sec, 30sec, 15sec, 5sec

I do not need to be told when my own cooldowns are ready...which is what the addons you suggested does.
I require my party members to be notified, which is why i use your addon.
It may be the object of a CY plugin though.
Why not include this?
Jun 9, 2008_ForgeUser159893 posted a message on CastYeller - announces to your party/raid important spells you cast.none of those addons you suggested did exactly what i wanted so i modified a cooldown mod called pCool.Posted in: General AddOns
the new function is "reportCoolDown", which is called inside the main update loop.
This is very messy and probably not the way any goood coder would implement a feature like this.
My main issue was preventing the function from spamming chat with my announcement, as detecting wether or not the timer was at 50sec can be called true for about 3-4 iterations of the main update loop.
Any suggetions on cleaning it up or making it standalone are welcome and appreciated.
local reportCoolDown = function(spellId, time) if(spellId == 18) then if(time == "51") or (time == "31") or (time == "11") or (time == "6") then aCount = 1 else if ( aCount > 0 ) then msg = "== Fear Ward ready in " .. time .."sec =="; aCount = 0 end end end if msg then DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(msg) if(GetZoneText() == "Alterac Valley" ) then else if(GetNumRaidMembers() > 0) then SendChatMessage(msg ,"RAID"); elseif (GetNumPartyMembers()>0) then SendChatMessage(msg ,"PARTY"); end end end end local OnUpdate = function(self, elapsed) self.time = self.time + elapsed if(self.time > .03) then now = self.max-GetTime() if(now >= 0) then time = formatTime(now) self.value:SetText(time) --[[ Begin Cooldown Group Announce reportCoolDown(self.spellid,time); --[[ End Cooldown Group Announce if(self.time == "3.0") then self.value:SetTextColor(.8, .1, .1) end else self:update(0) end self.time = 0 end end

Jun 4, 2008I much rather have firefox open on a second screen and use tomtom/lightheaded to guide me through the guides at wow-pro.com made by james.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
free, fast and fantastic.
Would be awesome though if the guides james made were made into questhelper/tourguide templates
Jun 2, 2008Would like a module for prat that can :Posted in: Addon Ideas
-Say a phrase to a guildmember/friend when they come on line
-Say a phrase to a guild member/person if they whisper a regex matched phrase
-Say a phrase to new guild members when they join
I looked at customfilters, and noticed it has some interesting options but i couldn't get it to reply to the phrase matches.

May 26, 2008Regarding incHeals someone made earlier on in this thread, I have hacked it with a slight change to make it work for me.Posted in: Unit Frames
Instead of using a status bar i used a texture.
local hcb = frame.Health:CreateTexture(nil, "OVERLAY") hcb:SetParent(frame.Health) hcb:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", frame.Health, "TOPLEFT") hcb:SetHeight(frame.Health:GetHeight()) hcb:SetWidth(0) --no initial width hcb:SetTexture(0,0,.9) hcb:Hide() frame.HealCommBar = hcb
And i modified the positioning slightly
frame.HealCommBar:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", frame, "TOPLEFT", percHP * frame.Health:GetWidth() , 0)
When I used this mod to oUF, the incoming healbar didn't show up.
So i turned it into a texture.
then the bar was only positioning at the start of the frame, extending into the health bar. So i swapped the values in he calculation for the X pos around.
Now incoming heals are visualised as extenstions of the current healthbar.
Pretty much exactly as pitbull does.

It's a possibility, but we are all supposed to update via Wowace before the raid.
I hope you have better luck than me...Me trying to get people to update their omen is like drawing blood from stone. people just ignore me.
Not to mention the pugs...OMG the pugs /swoon. So many times have i gone into a pug now ...(even on normal!) and the scrub dps happy mage dies and i say...were'nt you looking at your threat meter? the reply is...whats threat?
sometimes i wish it was free for all pvp at the drop of a hat...my hat.
