UI and Macro

Mar 15 Battleground Targets Addon Fix - Post 7.1.5 Battleground Targets Addon Fix - Post 7.1.5 I've tested this and it works until the developer provides an update from the 08/2016 latest build - (credit to Krampus-Velen) for sharing. It fixes the character class (showing up as a ?) and /bgt also works again. NOTE: Blizz does not support addons - i'm just sharing the info so you can fix your BG targets addon if it's broken. I have emailed the developer as well. Steps to fix BG Targets: 1) Open up battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad in the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\interface\addons\BattlegroundTargets 2) After opening battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad - save it to battlegroundtargets.old (so you can replace back if you mess up) 3) Close the file 4) Open up the original battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad (you won't see the lua extension this time) in the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\interface\addons\BattlegroundTargets 5) Once open in notepad - open EDIT then Find search on local id (this will bring you to the section you need to edit) 6) Replace old line with new and save and exit / then restart wow. OLD: local id, name, _, icon, _, role = GetSpecializationInfoForClassID(classID, i) NEW: local id, name, _, icon, role = GetSpecializationInfoForClassID(classID, i)Kiesel20 Mar 15
Mar 15 Simple WA Norgannon's Insight had to set up all of my weakauras again and am having trouble with this weakaura. I just want it to show when i have the buff, so i know when i can cast while moving. I currently have it set to Trigger>aura>Norgannon's Foresight and it only shows up when I start to move when I have the buff.Lausdeo0 Mar 15
Mar 15 Champion Ability Macro Im trying to get one of my champions abilities to work like the sigil @ player macros do. But I cannot get it to work. This is an on use ability that summons your champion, she spins around and does AoE. Her abilitiy is called "Mother's Caress". when you use it normally it works like Infernal strike or sigils and lets you target where she performs her attack. Id like to macro it to just work at my feet. Ive tried: /cast @Player] Mother's Caress but no dice. Is it just not able to work this way or am I doing something wrong?Blindsaviour2 Mar 15
Mar 15 Alternative to ElvUI? So I'm thinking of changing away from ElvUI simply because I'm on a heavy RP server and Tongues, which is incredibly useful to me, does not work with it. It's been a known issues for almost years now, so I don't see it getting fixed any time soon. My UI looks like this currently: http://imgur.com/a/UemXY That small name plate down at the very center, between the larger left and right ones is my "target of target" in case anyone is wondering. The larger one on the left is myself, larger one on the right is my current target. The entire UI is mostly clean and I don't really /need/ all the frills ElvUI gives me, I just need an addon that will let my interface look like what I've posted. I'd run the normal, base UI but after so long, it's a bit hard to look at and I hate how I can't move anything. I'd LIKE all my information to be mostly bottom center, since I have a massive monitor and trying to look around the entire thing for key data becomes old very quickly. I've heard good things about Bartender4 and MoveAnything. Would running those mods give me what I need? Thanks in advance.Jilkani4 Mar 15
Mar 15 Soul Barrier Weakaura not working just transferred servers and unfortunately I deleted all my weakauras for my DH tank. I was able to make all of them again but now I'm running into an issue where Soul Barrier won't show how many Soul Fragments I have to use on it's weakaura, Any help would be appreciated.Dreadykins2 Mar 15
Mar 15 A Macro that Switches Macros? Okay so currently I'm playing a Guardian druid, and I recently started messing around with it in WPvP (which is a lot of fun might I add). Atm, I have my Swipe and then its either macro'd to Mark of Ursol OR Ironfur, and I manually have to switch them out. My problem is that I don't like having too many different buttons where at all possible, so I don't want to have a second macro'd swipe on a dif button that I will likely remember to keep spamming instead of another. What I'd like to do, in layman's terms, is have it so I say press 2 to use my Swipe that has Ursol/Ironfur macro'd to it, while I have a different key that I only have to press ONCE to switch the swipe to the other version (From Ursol to Ironfur or vice versa). I'm willing to work with whatever, as long as it gives me the result I want :PSanaspera4 Mar 15
Mar 15 Talking head addon I really don't like talking heads. I found an addon to turn them off and shut them up. But sometimes it's actually useful. Thalyssra reminds me a hundred times to be careful, we dont want our withered to get stuck in cocoons. But she also tells me 1.5 sec in advance when Dro is about to jump on top of me. Is there an addon which can disable some parts of the talking heads, and move them to somewhere else on the screen?Esteemed3 Mar 15
Mar 15 Problem with chat log I have a problem with my chat log (bottom left bubble where you type and read text). For some reason, the text doesn't disappear when it reaches the top of the border. It scrolls all the way up like halfway up my screen and it's incredibly annoying. I've played with Inteface options and I've even downloaded a chat addon but my it still can't contain the text. I can't imagine I'm the only one who's had this problem... Can anyone help? ThanksSellethan1 Mar 15
Mar 15 WA for mana and boss hp bars Im trying to find a weakaura to track my mana alondside bosses health but im very bad at WA coding and i cant find any on wago Basically i want 2 bars tied, the boss health bar and my mana bar, both in green and with percentage in text inside...and both changing color to yellow if mana is 10% over boss life down to the same %...and turning red if mana goes down from boss life...is this even possible? can anyone please help me with this one? Im pretty sure the genius that helps me can also add the WA to wago since its usefull to all healers classes, its only meant to be a reference of when to slow down and i think its not going to work on all boss fights (and probably only on raid bosses) Maybe im dumb and there are better solutions like an addon that i cant find either, any help is totally wellcome...Öömkïn2 Mar 15
Mar 15 What happened to my screen? Hello! I need some assistance. Today I was playing, and I minimzed WoW to google some items. I used Alt + Tab to do so. it When I alt tabbed it put wow into the top right of my screen... But it wasn't in windowed mode. When I went to system settings it said it was still in fullscreen mode. I set it to window mode, and then back to full screen and was greeted with brand new issues. My ability icons, and bars are HUGE. I use ELVUI so I went in and reset it back to my original profile, which did nothing. The bottom of my screen is still clustered because of how large everything is. Tried messing around with the resolutions in game but nothing changed. I tried to reset everything back to default, that didn't fix the issue... not only that but now whenever I look left or right I get terrible FPS lag that I didn't have before. Here's a SS of the night before this incident and how my UI looked prior. http://imgur.com/3NGkWCo Here is a SS of it currently. http://imgur.com/McdAJKf EDIT: Whenever I alt tab now, my internet browser window is put in the top right, same way wow was, even though im in full screen mode before clicking back onto wow (And despite it saying it's not windowed down)Eviefry4 Mar 15
Mar 15 Looking to update addon to work for 7.1.5 NiceDamage = CreateFrame("Frame", "NiceDamage"); local damagefont_FONT_NUMBER = "Interface\\AddOns\\NiceDamage\\font.ttf"; function NiceDamage:ApplySystemFonts() DAMAGE_TEXT_FONT = damagefont_FONT_NUMBER; end NiceDamage:SetScript("OnEvent", function() if (event == "ADDON_LOADED") then NiceDamage:ApplySystemFonts() end end); NiceDamage:RegisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED"); NiceDamage:ApplySystemFonts() Used to use this to make the floating combat text actually decent to look at found out it no longer works since coming back. Not sure if it needs to be completely rewritten or just straight up won't work anymore but would greatly appreciate help if anyone has time.Xathadin1 Mar 15
Mar 14 Keybinding migration failure, please help Hello I recently migrated my warlock from one realm to another. I figure I would just copy over the binding-cache and macros-cache over and everything will be peachy. To that end everything works. I log in and nothing is there. I double check and not the same files. So I do it agian, this time I open the files make sure they have been copied over successfully from: World of Warcraft > WTF > ACCOUNT> ACCOUNTNAME > (old realm) > CHARACTERNAME To: World of Warcraft > WTF > ACCOUNT> ACCOUNTNAME > (new realm) > CHARACTERNAME Everything looks great. I tried this a few times but everytime they keep resetting to defaults. Anyone know how to fix this? I rebinded just about everything in the game to new keys. I dread the thought of doing it again from scratch. Edit: tiny bit of clarification, I've tried migrating everything contents of old/new directory as well as just individual cache files, on top of deleting the contents of destination folder before copying to make sure nothing remained.Noordein3 Mar 14
Mar 14 Drop-down menus disappear; map changing I'm not sure if this is the correct forum or I should submit it as a bug, but allow me to explain. I've noticed a recurring problem for as long as I can remember, and it is really driving me crazy. The situation is, that if I have a drop-down or context menu open (even while I am doing nothing else) it will often close it before I click on anything. A similar problem occurs while having the world map open. In this case, if I am traveling and move into a different zone or any kind of sub-zone changes, the map will change to that current zone if I happen to be viewing somewhere else. I've asked around and it seems that I'm not the only one with this problem, and through my own limited testing, I do not believe it to be caused by mods I use. So, regarding both of these problems, which I find to be very annoying and disruptive, my question is, if this is a known Blizz bug, mods, or part of something bigger I have not yet discovered? Regardless, I really would love to get this fixed. Can anyone else confirm this? If it turns out to be one of my mods, then I'll look into it deeper, but if it is a bug, does anyone know of a mod or work-around to fix it in the meantime? Thanks in advance.Zepheron18 Mar 14

Mar 13 Looking for a Global Cooldown Addon I am looking for a global cooldown indicator. I currently have a toolbar up by my normal castbar, with one icon in it, of a spell which has no cooldown. And that works, but I am wondering if there is some better way. I tried Global Cooldown Bar (the only addon on Curse that pops up when searching for "global cooldown"), but unfortunately it does not work. It shows up in the addons list at the login screen, but nowhere else. Any suggestions?Scartaris3 Mar 13
Mar 13 Quest Ready for Turnin API I'm using GetQuestLogTitle to get information about all quests in my questlog. When I'm looking at the questlog on screen, or the quest POI's for a quest that can be turned in, there is a gold "?". How can I determine if a quest is ready to be turned in using the API? I thought "IsComplete" returned by GetQuestLogTitle woudl do it, but apparently not so.Ozzmorx2 Mar 13

Mar 13 Elvui unitframe debuff colour Hey guys, just wondering if any of you Elvui users out there could help me out. I recently started using the UI and so far I love it. The only thing that irritates me is that the unitframes (player, target, raid and party) all of them change colour if a person has a debuff on them. I want them to remain the same colour permanently.. I am colour blind and find it hard to concentrate on them properly when they are changing.. Thanks guys :)Decisionz5 Mar 13
Mar 13 Chat Macro Help I've never worked with macros before, and I only have a faint knowledge of how they work. I'm looking to create a macro that allows my character to autospeak in guild chat.

Mar 13 healbot help Just upgraded to healbot today, and before I upgraded my character bars were always being shown at full opacity...green when full health, white when missing buffs, etc. Since I upgraded all the character bars are greyed out when out of combat, and not missing buffs. Only time bars go to full opacity is when missing buffs out of combat (bar color turns white when buffs needed) or when i go into combat bars go back to full opacity. What I'd like to know is how to make healbot show bars at full opacity when not in combat, and fully buffed like it did prior to upgrade. Also, this is not a out of range opacity issue, as it happens with my toon's bar as well. Hopefully I explained my issue well, and any help that could be offered is greatly appreciated, ty!Pocketpimp8 Mar 13
Mar 12 Problem with skada Having a specific problem with the way skada is interacting with the Blizzard UI.

Mar 12 Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade and Macros My paladin has this macro for her flying mounts: #showtooltip /castrandom Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent,Thundering Jade Cloud Serpent,Thundering August Cloud Serpent,Heavenly Golden Cloud Serpent,Heavenly Crimson Cloud Serpent, Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade Before I got the new serpent Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade the macro was working just fine.

Mar 12 Agonizing poison at 5 stacks Hey guys im trying to track agonizing poison on multiple targets and i've run into an oddity if the target is already at 5 stacks... it stops triggering "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED" or "SPELL_AURA_REFRESH" or "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED_DOSE" whenever it gets refreshed. in fact, it doesn't appear to send any combat log event at all! So my mod will show it drop off at 12 seconds (max duration of agonizing poison) when in fact, it's been refreshed many time and has plenty of time left. Is there some other event i should watch for?Signi2 Mar 12

Mar 11 Chat Bar Tab Structure for Every UI Element? Do you guys think it's possible to use the chat bar tab functionality for every single UI element?

That would help immensely into saving space.Danerik2 Mar 11

Mar 11 I am in need of a sound file expert I can't seem to find the sound attached to the subtlety rogue artifact trait "Embrace of Darkness".

Mar 10 Modifying KuiNameplates a little bit I'm a 3rd semester computer science major and I have a very fragmented understanding of lua, so I've basically been trying to puzzle things together. I've been looking for a nameplates addon that gives the option to have the target nameplate display as a different color. I could not find one, so I decided to attempt to modify KuiNameplates to add this feature. I was able to successfully add "Target" to the config menu and the selected color does get applied to the target's nameplate: http://imgur.com/a/oKIUy However, there are a couple of problems: 1. The nameplate color will not update when it is no longer the current target. 2. If a nameplate already exists on the screen, selecting it as the current target will not update its color. The only way to have the target nameplate appear as the proper color is for you to already have the unit targeted before the game puts a nameplate on the screen. If you angle the camera right, it is actually possible to have 2 nameplates showing the color of the current target. Basically, the problem is that the nameplate colors do not update. I'm looking for some help because I basically have no clue what I'm doing. Kui_Nameplates has a lot of lua files contained in it and I assembled them into one document to make it easier to puzzle my way through this. Here is a link to the document: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nqp5e9hloto16w9/Kui_All_Lua_Files.txt?dl=0 Here is a link to the changes I made: https://www.dropbox.com/s/94e22ufry0nb0hz/Kui_Changes.txt?dl=0 Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks for reading.Poli2 Mar 10
Mar 10 Need weakaura help Hi all, I'm trying to make a weakaura(progress bar preferred) that upon combat start will countdown from a set time of 10 seconds and then upon reaching 0 will restart counting down this time from 30seconds and upon reaching 0 will loop back from 30 until combat ends.

Mar 10 Target macro help I've been searching around macro stuff but most of what I've found has been for healers or spell casting - not actually setting a target (which can be useful in certain situations when soloing, tanking, or pvp). In a macro: a) I want to target a players target if I have moused over a player with a target that's harmful and not dead b) otherwise, if I am mousing over an enemy that's hostile and not dead, I want that c) otherwise, I want to select the next enemy target This seems to work: /target [@targettarget,harm,nodead,exists] targettarget /target [harm,nodead,exists] mouseover /targetenemy [noharm][dead] But is there a better way to do this? I thought I'd see if there were any macro pro's that new a more efficient way to do it.Morphius8 Mar 10
