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:

    One thing I am missing is an option that is "Grow upwards", which means that even though it starts at bottom left, nr 1 is at the top. Not like the "Reverse bar growth" that keeps nr1 at the bottom.

    This addon better than Recount, don't leave this project please :)

    I have some problems:

    1) As said in #22977 post, on some bosses Skada makes about 3 segments for one boss

    2) When I check "Only keep boss fights" looks like nothing recorded, just old mobpacks and last boss in Skada, no new boss

    3) What correct command for report to player directly? /skada report <name> - reports in /say Is it because player name in cyrilic? All other report options works perfectly.

    4) When in left-click on Skada minimap icon to hide stats, and after some time click again to back it, it looks like title merged with first player name: http://www.picamatic.com/show/2009/02/23/10/12/2407694_460x243.jpg

    [wishlist] Is it possible make addon more advanced for healers? [wishlist]

    Jeah nice job so far :)

    But there seems to be something wrong with the "current fight" splitting: http://images.geforz.de/album/World%20of%20Warcraft/misc/WoWScrnShot_022009_225444.jpg But the Loatheb and Noth segments were just one fight.

    And an overall dmg comparision between Skada and Recount for Naxx clear: http://images.geforz.de/album/World%20of%20Warcraft/misc/WoWScrnShot_022109_011929.jpg

    REAllY GREAT JOB. Better than recount. Is it possible to add a 1 Click button to report? Not a biggie right now I just use macros to do it but would be nice. Either way GREAT JOB man please keep it updated. YOU ROCK.

    Pets are merged, yes. The pet detection is not 100% though as of yet.

    Has merge pets been included in the latest build? That's the only thing keeping me from using it at this time.

    Damage.lua

    135 line and 143 line

    local dmg = {playerid = srcGUID, playername = srcName, spellid = 6603, spellname = "Attack",

    change

    local dmg = {playerid = srcGUID, playername = srcName, spellid = 6603, spellname = L["Attack"],

    Downloaded r41 and played around with it on a target dummy alongside Recount. I'm very excited about seeing a finished product, or even a beta. Any plans to implement mouseover tooltips for damage breakdowns? For example: hit/crit/dodge/parry on a specific attack. The drill-down style is great, but at the level of detail given in the breakdown by skill, it's a lot faster to glean information (and particularly compare numbers) by a simple mouseover rather than having to click twice.
