    Yeah, well options are taking me little bit longer than expected, this is the first time I'm ever using AceOptionTables.
    (Although they are quite powerfull and once you unterstand the basics they aren't that difficult ...)

    Unless there isn't going to be world war III any time soon, I think I might be finished until sunday, at worst.

    Just a simple question i tho at it: Why not make Avion as Parrot module? I mean Parrot is using Parser3 could easily when i got Debuff see a text displaying +Debuff and/or or not a visual effect from Avion. Could just work the same way by using less code and less libraries.

    Debuff line, add a box "enable Avion effect" to debuff choose yur texture, animation and there we go?

    Would be nice tho to enable the module and get options from Parrot yu want or not enable a "visual" effect.


    Yeah, I head that idea too, right after uploading Avion to SVN, well would have saved me a lot of thinking. ^^

    As for now, I'll definitly keep on working on Avion, but there COULD probably a Avion module for SCT and/or Parrot, dempents on how easy/hard it is to hack into. (But I'm not working on this any time soon ;) )

    Yeah, its up on branches, still no options.

    Sorry to let you wait, today's is my final exam and I really needed a short break so I started playing Dreamfall. (Hell! One of the best adventures I've come accross so far, when it comes to story)

    I'll start working on it today or tommorw again. ;)


    The ability to distinguish if I'm in a raid vs a party vs solo for some of the visual
    effects. This way I can set up an effect that triggers on "If in a raid, not in combat,
    and missing BUFF XYZ"

    That's currently not possible, the reason why not was because I though what was of no use, but I allready have an idea how to do this...
    (But first I'll complete this damn options ^^)


    Been mucking about - very nice. Can't wait for the options to be completed, and guidelines
    for the custom textures to be done (although, it's prolly pretty straight forward) I'd like to
    request SharedMedia support - MyMedia would make the customization that much more powerful.

    Hm, not worked with SharedMadia yet, is the wiki entry up again?
    If I'm able to register my only "media library" with it, something like "PowerAura_Media" that would be interesting. :)

    Avion is a highly customizable mod that allows to to show visual effects on certain events.

    You can read more about it on the wiki page:

    So it's time to put it up on the SVN, i a not safe for use kind of way if u ask me.
    I'm somehow skeptic about that. To be honest with you, i still think this is some sort of a hoax, until there is a version on the SVN.

    I'm just a pessimist and a skeptic.


    I mailed/requested an SVN account (I think) 3-4 day's ago. No answer yet, admins are probably still busy because of the wiki "problem"...


    EDIT: I've have opened the official topic here now. ;)

    Well, after some time without updates, it's time to say that I'm finally done optimizing, testing and debugging.

    The only thing that's missing now are the options, meaning I have to implement methodes to change settings in the database and the option-table itsself.

    Just out of curiosity, would you be interested in including some new artwork/texures with your initial release of PowerAura2?


    Sure thing, do you have any? :>

    Quote from Theseus »

    Now that this project is off the ground what are you (the author) going to name it? I do not recommend recycling the old name if this a complete recode. Some suggestions: "Aura" (homage to the old PowerAura but nice and simple), "Halo"

    Any ideas?


    I was thinking of PowerAura2 because of two reasons
    • I'm kind of uncreative coming to this kind of stuff :D
    • I want PowerAura (1) user's to easily recognize this ;)
    However, if someone comes up with a cool idea, this would also be cool ^^



    Quote from punkNhead »

    Not really sure if this is in the scope of this addon, as I don't use Power Auras, but I used to use an addon for my warlock called Instabolt. It created a full screen glowing effect whenever Nightfall procced (the glow is similar to how Omen is handling the threat warning now, which is very nice). I could see the this being useful for all kinds of buffs (Clear Cast, Flurry, Surge of Light, etc).

    Would a full screen effect like this be possible?

    I think I'll just steal ... eeeh I meant borrow the texture from Instabolt and either add a "fullscreen" option or you would have to manually adjust the size. It's definitly possible. ;)


    PS: Again some progress, event stuff completly done (Combatlog done to). I'm currently writing methodes to register events only when needed. (eg. you won't need BigWigs if you aren't watching any BigWigs messages)

    Next to come are the options ... that's going to be fun <Irony off> >_<

    Sounds very interesting, I'm a big fan of Power Auras, is there any chance you could post somewhere your work in progress? It might help to have others debugging too, if it's in a somehow usable state.

    It's just a suggestion, not trying to force your hand. :) And thanks for taking over this project.


    The animation part is done and the event management is drycoded to 60-70%, not much progres lately, currently having examinations.
    (I think I haven't played WoW for three weeks now, but this will definitly change with the upcoming holidays :D)

    Has there ever been or going to be an Auctioneer type Ace addon? I mean, if it can be done it can be Ace'd right? =)


    Wrong. Please write 1000 times to remember it: "Ace2 is not an magical performance bullet". Auctioneer is big because it holds big amounts of data and you can't just miraculously shrink it with Ace2. If you have specific parts of Auctioneer in mind that can be improved with Ace2, your patches or at least general descriptions of changes would be very welcomed on Auctioneer forums.


    Totally agree there and to back you up ... where was it again *digging* ... oh yeah, here :D

    posted a message on Grid + Mana Bars
    I was once writing a mod to give "infinit" number of corner indicators and also add a manabar.

    My idea was to align the manabars outside of the frame and change the frame spacing accordingly.

    However the mod is on ice for quite a while now...
    (Lost the interest on it a while ago and now its examination time >_< )


    Edit: About manabar position, I'd just make an option if to align top, bottom, left or right.

    WELL, couldnt you do that if you tied the "tracking" for PA2 into the combat channel? you know:

    Scary Mob gains "UBER UP YUR FACE" buff

    Yeah, thats also a nice idea, with http://www.wowace.com/wiki/Parser-3.0 this should be feasible. Although it is either going be be diffifult for me to make options for it as user-friendly as possible or it is going to be a bit user unfriendly (like some parts of Discord Action Bars were ^^)

    Quote from paradigmlie »

    OOOOOOO, i smell a collaboration with BigWigs and LaVendetta....

    Hm, dunno, if BigWigs is firing events when it is diplaying/updating something this sould also be feasible, if not it is going to have lower priority on my list. ;)


    Edit: Ok, BigWigs triggers Events, thats good. :D

    Edit2: The texture will mainly come from PowerAura, so credits definitly go to Sinsthar here ;)
