Acheron

Acheron UI "Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades." Acheron provides an easily readable glimpse into the cause of death for anyone in your raid or party. In addition to the damage and healing that occurred to someone up to their moment of death, Acheron also allows you to track and displays buffs and debuffs, which may also contribute to someone's death (Melt Armor on Al'ar, Corrosion on Felmyst, tank missed shield block, etc). Right-clicking on a raid/party member unit frame will find a new option 'Show Death Reports'. Should be pretty self-explanatory from there. /acheron show to show the main UI /acheron config to bring up the config Official Thread: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=13575

    On the PTR, Acheron appeared to work fine. Marking as release for v5.4.

    I've just submitted to the svn the fix for the problems strunker was having. Also updated for 5.3.

    Don't know what your issue is, but I can't reproduce it here, sorry. The mod works fine here, including in WoW 4.3.

    strunker I am having the same problem as you, I have been looking at the code to try and figure out why this is happening but can't figure out what the problem is.

    This addon has been working completely fine until recently. For whatever reason with r95 when I open up the acheron window the drop down which normally shows raid members only shows three dots... and then acheron.

    It no longer is listing players. any suggestions.

    These CLEU changes are no great mystery; the Wowpedia page (as well as the official WoW forums) have come out with them long before various people repost them all over the place to various mod comments/forums/tickets.

    I uploaded the WoW 4.1 CLEU changes for Acheron back in April (and a couple other changes) in alpha r92 and have done so just now for WoW 4.2.

    The last author Mokhtar is long gone from WoW. If you don't want to add these changes in yourself, download the latest alpha r93 here.

    The change look ok, last time I pm'ed Mokthar the 4.1 changes, did you do the same? Don't know if he/she ready this comments ;)

    EDIT: I just wrote a PM to her/him, hopefully it will be updated soon.

    I edited Ravengus' changes for patch 4.2 (note, due to using r92 as a basis for these changes, the line numbers changed a bit from Ravengus' changes, I changed those as well).

    Still untested, but I will test it right away on the PTR, if it doesn't work I will write another comment. But I expect it to work.

    Fix for Patch 4.2: open Acheron.lua change Line 356 to: function Acheron:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 369 to: self:HandleBuffEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 371 to: self:HandleHealthEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 417 to: function Acheron:HandleBuffEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 452 to: local msg = CombatLog_OnEvent(Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 461 to: function Acheron:HandleHealthEvent(event, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    change Line 527 to: local msg = CombatLog_OnEvent(Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings, timeStamp, eventType, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, srcRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, dstRaidFlags, ...)

    Thanks Ravengus! Those .lua fixes made this great addon work again.
