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:

    Thanks. But seems like the project is abandoned. Anyway, Skada is my favorite damage meter addon, thank you!

    I have my skada windows on the right side of my interface. So the left-justified title bar text seems kinda ... misplaced.

    Please put it back to the center. Or give an option for the alignment. Or tell me which line of the code i've to edit ^^

    With the new Title Bar, its easy to report , select mode, etc. But since the new title bar, i no longer see the little Wheel (config icon), in the upper right hand corner to allow reporting when you choose to keep the Title Bar hidden.

    Is there a /slash command to pull this up? Currently i have to /skada config, enable the title bar, then i have access to the reporting options.

    Any reason why your Absorbs module records widely innacurate information in regards to Paladin bubbles via Illuminated Healing Mastery?

    I'm seeing variances in numbers of over 1 million effective healing difference between your mod and World of Logs on my Pally.

    In game the meters attribute the vast majority of the shields to me, and not my Pally healing partner. Yet on World of Logs its properly attributed to the right healer. You can tell because my total healing for spells that generate IH has a maximum limit of 13-15% of my total depending on my equipped Mastery Gear and in-game the percent sometimes exceeds 20-30%.

    Ya, it was the "Total" that gave the error.

    No errors at all with r338, everything is working great.

    Will you add in some kind of profile support, such as a default setting that all new characters will have? I liked the older behavior where I could set up my Skada window on one toon, and have all the settings apply to other characters without having to change profiles.

    Also, I find that I have to keep on resetting the background and border options. They do not save. I set the border to "none", and the background to total transparency, and the settings neither save, nor carry over between reloadui.

    @angrysteel: Go

    2x Skada\Skada-r336.lua:704 attempt to index local "pvpinfo" (a nil value)

    1 return of GetZonePVPInfo() is a String not a Table

    local pvpType, isFFA = GetZonePVPInfo()
    return select(2,IsInInstance()) == "pvp" or select(2,IsInInstance()) == "arena" or pvpType == "arena" or pvpType == "combat" or isFFA
    

    http://www.wowwiki.com/API_IsInInstance

    5x SkadaDamage-r336\Damage-Damage.lua:315 attempt to index local "player" (a nil value)

    you hover over the "total" right?

    fix:

    bardisplay.lua

    l 125

    	if Skada.db.profile.tooltips and (win.metadata.click1 or win.metadata.click2 or win.metadata.click3 or win.metadata.tooltip) and Skada:find_player(win:get_selected_set(), id) then
    

    but you get an error if you shift click on total
