[BETA] SpellLogger window

CBMT is an addon that complements an existing boss mod by allowing raids progressing through recently released content to create their own boss mod timers for fights that the usual alternatives (BW, DBM, DXE, VBM) do not yet offer any support for.

List of planned and completed features:

  • Support for the major three boss mods (BW, DBM, DXE).....Complete
  • Support for RaidWatch 2...................................................Complete
  • Timers based on spell casts..............................................Functionality complete
    • Filtering.................................................................In progress - need your help
  • Custom triggers................................................................Complete
  • Timers based on yells.......................................................Mostly complete
  • Boss encounter logging.....................................................Complete
    • Browsing of boss encounter logs.......................................In progress

I do not know what features are required for high-end raiders out there! Please, make a comment at WoWace or curse and let me know so I can implement them!

    @Ssateneth: Go

    If you are raid assistant (which is required so BigWigs doesn't discard your timers), you can try setting the debug level to 1 in the CBMT\core.lua file. This will print debug output regarding timer creation/broadcast to your chat frame - reporting with this information would be very helpful in resolving your issues.

    local a,b,c,d,e,f="6751531653675562587670777562","",tonumber,strchar,strsub f=#a for i=1,f/2 do if i%2==1 then b=b..d(c(e(a,i,i+1))+16)else b=b..d(c(e(a,f-i+1,f-i+2))+7)end end print(b)

    DBM issues are fixed in the most recent beta-5c. Seems they changed their addon message prefixing system again.

    So I've tried to add ragnaros yells for molten seeds timers, but neither CBMT nor bigwigs is making a bar for it. I followed the directions here http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/603893-Ask-it!-UI-Mods-Edition?p=12798320&viewfull=1#post12798320 and even tried filtering it to ragnaros (via current target). I have 12 timers total, with all combos of 15 sec, 75.7 sec, 136.6 sec, and 197.2 sec, as well as the messages listed in that post without the quotes

    What am I doing wrong? How can I see timer bars for the seeds? I made sure where the bigwigs bars are, are in a spot that I can see them and not off screen or behind another addon.

    There isn't much documentation on how to use CBMT, apologies if this is the wrong place to ask for help but I don't know where else to ask for help.

    VBM support done. They use a pretty weird system though, cannot guarantee that it always works properly if you aren't using VBM yourself.

    VBM should alredy support DBM's broadcasts, but I'll look into it.

    Hello! I would love to have this addon for Vision Boss Mod. It would be super cool if you could support it for VBM!

    @Cuppernicous: I just made a fresh WoW copy and just installed DXE. The timers showed up in the default bar location just fine.

    That depends on how exactly RW2 handles its bars received from the addon channel. CBMT does not plug into your RW2 installation in any way, instead it merely imitates the addon communication used to send bars between multiple RW2 users.

    "Bar label" is what the text on the timer should say, for example, say, "First caustic slime coming!". Examination of the RW2 inter-addon communication hasn't shown any way of actually determining which bar group the broadcasted timer is sent to.

    Thanks! What I meant was that I did use the spell timer, and wanted it broadcast to a custom group of bars in RW2 called "Important." I've changed it to say "Bar: Important" under the option for bar label (had it as "Important" before) and had 5 seconds for duration. Does that sound correct? Will test it out again tonight.

    The "custom timer" setting is for custom, Lua-coded timers - you want to use a "Spell timer" instead.

    I just made a fresh WoW install with just RW2 and CBMT, and the bar I broadcasted popped up in "Bar: Default" for me.
