Death Note

Death Note

Death analysis tool.

Death Note records the events preceding a death and presents them to you in a comprehensible manner. If you have used Acheron before, this addon has been inspired by it.

How to use

  • Check the data capture options in the interface panel and make sure that you are comfortable with the default settings.
  • To view the recorded deaths, use the option in the right-click menu of a unit frame. Or, if you have a LDB display, you can also open the Death Note frame from there.

Not so obvious stuff you can do:

  • Right-Click on the list of deaths to change the ordering.
  • Drag a column separator to move it.
  • Click on a time or health column to change its display format.
  • Click on a spell or source to highlight all occurrences of that spell or source.
  • Control+Click on a spell or source to add that spell or source to the list of filters (removing all the lines with that spell or source).
  • Right-Click on a line to send a report to a chat channel starting from that line.
  • Shift+Click on a column to paste its contents to the chat edit box.
  • Control+Mouse wheel to change the frame scale.

    You can only send reports to custom channels at the moment. Sending announces to custom channels will be added later.

    How can I get this to output to a custom channel?

    I am aware of that problem. As a workaround until it is fixed, disable the consolidation filters before sending a report.

    I have ran some tests and I have not found any problems with announces to any channel. Try deleting the SavedVariables file and disabling other addons and let me know if you still are having problems then. I am not sure what you mean with an "only in raid/group option", but there is already an option to announce the deaths to the party or raid channel, depending on the type of group you are in (which used to include battlegrounds too, but it doesn't anymore).

    Also, I have added some checks in the latest version that should prevent spam of "You are not in a party" type errors when configured to announce deaths to a channel you are not in.

    Seems to be some kind of bug if I choose raid output or group (well anything but chat frame) for announces it doesn't announce anything. Also an only in raid/group option would be great.

    Actually seems to work in group/party but not in raid group. I was the raid leader if that makes a difference.

    An option to enable an automatic data wipe when a new combat session has started would be great.

    Saves me the trouble to wipe the data manually between each wipe on a boss.

    Can you explain what would be the use case ? A report longer than 10 lines seems like it would be more confusing than helpful, and I prefer to not add features that are not really needed.

    Would it be possible to add timed throttling to the reporting feature for messages longer than 10 lines?

    Sending reports and announces to private channels will be added.. eventually.
