What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Issue seems to occur anytime the the Rangefinder switches to Arcing lightning mode on Iron Qon Normal or Heroic (10 man only tested)
What version of the Big Wigs are you using?
Do you have an error log of what happened?
I do not, it didn't throw any errors.
Please provide any additional information below. (example: localization of your client if not enUS or enGB)
Localization is enUS.
Issue is that when the Rangefinder switches to Arcing Lightning mode on the Iron Qon fight, it suddenly stops tracking some people in the raid group. Once switching back to Lightning storm, everyone seems to show up again. This has gotten me yelled at by raiders, since they're trying to get out of range of me (they're using DBM where issue is not present), but I'm not seeing them on the finder at all.
I'm no LUA expert, though I do code part time for a living. Having a quick look at the code for the fight,
for i=1, GetNumGroupMembers() do
local name = GetRaidRosterInfo(i)
if UnitDebuff(name, spellName) then
debuffs = true
elseif UnitAffectingCombat(name) then -- XXX doesn't update for bres/ss/reincarnate
everyoneElse[#everyoneElse+1] = name
it looks like if a raid member is affected by the arcing lightning as well as myself, then the only action taken for this code segment is that debuffs is set to true, since the part that adds them to he everyoneElse array won't trigger, since the elseif won't trigger. It also explains why during this phase I've seen people who aren't populated on the finder suddenly show up - if they're affected by the debuff and it drops off they'll suddenly be passed to the everyoneElse array when the elseif triggers (which is later passed to the proximity check).
Again I'm not a LUA coder so I could be way off on the cause. But having people mysteriously disappear from my proximity check during our heroic attempts runs the risk of scaring the shit out of me. :) If you guys get a chance to look at this, it'd be appreciated.
