Skada Damage Meter

Minimal theme

Skada is a modular damage meter with various viewing modes, segmented fights and customizable windows. It aims to be highly efficient with memory and CPU.

Usage

When you first start using Skada, there will be a window created by default. This window can be extensively customized in Skada's configuration panel; click the little cog icon to access a menu, and then click Configure. Depending on your user interface, there may also be a minimap button allowing quick access to this menu.

Skada supports multiple windows. To create a new window, click Windows in the addon's configuration panel. There are three built-in types of windows - Bar, Inline, and Data text. Bar is the classic damage meter window, and is very customizable. Inline shows the meter in a horizontal line, which can be useful for integration in custom user interfaces. Data text shows just one item at a time, and can also be displayed by any LDB display addon, such as Titan Panel, ChocolateBar, or ElvUI.

In the normal Bar window, you can left click on specific items for more detailed information, and right click for less details. At the very "top" is the list of all saved fight segments. Some data modes have several detailed information views. In this case you choose alternate views by holding certain keys pressed while clicking. For example, in Damage mode, you can Shift-click a player to see what enemies the player caused damage to. Tooltips will display how to reach the different views.

You can also use window buttons for selecting fight segment and mode directly.

Scrolling in Skada is done with the mousewheel.

Plugins

Skada is very easy to extend, and there are many extra plugin addons out there that add functionality, such as:

    Hello.

    I get a horrible problem with this mod that makes me crash sporadically during anything ranging from 5 mans to raids.

    I've tried dropping a few of the modules I don't really need, debuff uptime, power, CC, fail reports.

    I use the main Skada window and don't create any new ones. I generally have the window switch to threat mode during combat also.

    Apart from changing font/bar sizes etc most of the configuration is default, save for only keeping boss segments.

    I only use Bigwigs and EBB and I have tried using nothing but Skada but still run into crashes so I don't think its a mod conflict problem.

    Has anyone experienced this problem and found a way to fix it?

    I really do like Skada and would much rather use it than Recount, though this crash problem is not really letting me do that.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Had a situation last night where the DPS bars in a 5-man kept showing the same damage after switching from threat mode. Almost like it froze data for a while. I had to reset Skada then it did ok. Any idea what that was?

    Same issue as xxyz below - doesn't swap from threat to dmg.

    Fantastic Addon. Only thing I really wish it had is a set window size and scrollbars. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Zarnivoop, sweet addon, longtime user.

    Recently, I have been asked to heal as Disc on certain encounters, and since I like to look at performance metrics (heh), I was puzzled by the low amount of mana regen from Rapture.

    As an example, in the Absorbs, I had 350k, but only 12k in mana returned from Rapture. That stuck me as very low.

    I thought I would throw it out in the forums just in case its a bug, but I will also go and so some controlled testing and report further. Perhaps I am nubbing it up and not using the shield spam correctly.

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Fixed the Spark Problem.

    Download this file and unrar it into your "Interface" folder. It is an UI-CastingBar-Spark replacement. Tested it and it works

    Hey there, its a great addon! keep up the good work, unfortunately some bugs still occur in the latest release.

    i can not reproduce it but every now and then skada's threat module shows everyone except me, the MT. its very annoying due to the fact that even a /reload does not solve it. i encountered this misbehavior in ulduar at first a few months ago and its still a "feature" in all actual encounters anub'arak or onyxia it doesn't matter, i even encounterd it in the scarlet event thingi ;)

    second bug: the damage meter does not always automaticaly show up after fightend. the battle is over and approx. 10 seconds are needed to get dmg informations. or it completely refuses to switch to the dmg module and stays in threat.

    third or second.5: sometimes the automatic switch between threat and another module after fight does not function.

    the last one (maybe only a feature request): while pausing or rebuffing i trie to look up some things but, if someone enters the instance or disconnects/connects in the raid all context menus disappear. is there a possibility to fix this behavior?

    regards

    I have the same issue as Kelem, it conflicts with the hide as solo option, either one on their own works fine but with both skada comes up in pvp
