Speedy Actions

This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

If you wish to take this project over, please report it and state your intentions.

Simple addon, all this does is speeds up triggering actions by making them happen when you press a key or press your mouse rather than releasing them. It's setup to work with all of the default Blizzard action bars as well as totem summoning and recalling. It will automatically work with any addon that uses the default Blizzard system for key bindings (Game Menu -> Key Bindings). Even if an addon doesn't work with Speedy Actions I can add a module to make it work, just see below.

There is no real performance cost from using this addon either, the work it does is out of combat and while in combat the only "cost" is that of executing a key binding.

Slash commands: /speedyactions (/sa, /speedyaction)

<addon> does not work with this?!
If you find an addon that does not work with Speedy Actions, post a comment with the download page and I will work on making a module to make that addon work with Speedy Actions.

<addon> is already supported but a button didn't work
Should you find an addon that is already listed as working, but a button isn't being sped up then do this:
Mouse over the button that isn't working and run /script print(GetMouseFocus():GetName() or "<unnamed frame>") then post the addon name and the results of the script and I'll get it fixed

    Hello, this is a great Addon, I have added this to my guilds "required-Addon" list. I do have one suggestion that I am hoping you could add, as it falls in line with its purpose.

    That is to "target" on "Press" and not release. As this addon works for all action bars, it currently does not work on the target bar or raid frames for targeting. Perhaps it already does this normally, but it does not work with my current raid frame: X-Perl which is a widely used raid frame, which lead me to believe it does not perform this function.

    The reason I ask this, is because as I am obviously a healer, and targeting is very important (I find mouseover macros to be too restraint, as I like more freedom to determine my next healing priority, as well as raid leading/movement). When I am healing I find that my targeting "release" is not registering fast enough to my reaction on the heal (which SpeedyActions helps speed up). This results in my heal (even though pressed after the mouse), is falling into that fraction of a second for the target "release" and the heal is landing on the previous target, not the new one.

    Sorry for the semi-walloftext, appreciate anything you can suggest, weather it be another addon that already does this(I could not find one) or adjusting this one.

    Thank You! -Sorn <Sovereing> Bloodhoof Alliance.

    I did actually do one: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12734-PaladinBuffer.html a while ago but I don't play a Paladin anymore so I think it has a bug or two.

    I use both PP and SA. I don't have any issues running them both. PP is just.. horrible. I don't know if it's how it's coded or what but it kills systems. If there was an easier way to organize pally buffs I'd dump it in a heartbeat.

    after more trouble shooting, the issue only happens if SA and palypower are both turned on, if i disable either one the crashing stops, although i'm pretty sure the bug is in PP and not SA. I'm reading on mac forums that PP is crashing a few paladins and they don't use SA but they also use different combinations of addons. I suspect that for whatever reason PP crashes wow when right combination of addons are present :( I also don't know if crash even happens on windows machine or just macs. For now I just have SA profiled to load on all chars but paladin, so he can use PP. :\
