UI and Macro

May 29, 2012 mouseover and focus macro all-in-one help i'm trying to create a macro with Repentance that will: -cast Repentance on the mouse-over target if existing, OR -cast Repentance on the selected target, OR -cast Repentance on the focus target when i hold down ALT (even when I have different target selected). so far i have the following: /cast [nomod,@mouseover,exists] Repentance; Repentance; [mod:alt,target=focus] Repentance the first part of the macro (nomod actions) work just fine. but the alt-button doesn't seem to make the spell go to the focus target. it instead goes to the selected target. and if there is no selected target, it tells me i have no selected target. thanks for any input you all can give.Kraniel2 May 29, 2012

May 29, 2012 Incredibly Simple Shift Modifier Problem.HELP I can't get a simple shift modifier macro to work for my warrior: /cast [mod:shift] Slam; Heroic Strike ****** KEY INFORMATION ******** I've been researching issues that players are having with shift modifier macros such as this and have noted that many other players have the same issue. For some, basic advice worked. And others have been left frustrated. I am one of the latter. 1) I have the macros bound to my "Q" key. 2) I have gone into my key bindings and bound "Shift Q" to a button. Then unbound it to make certain that "shift-Q" is not bound to anything. 3) When I use the button without using the shift key, it uses my heroic strike (as it should). But when I hold down the shift key to use Slam-- the button shows that it is no longer on cooldown (indicating that I can press the key again to cast Slam). However, when I hold down shift and actually press the "Q" key. . . . nothing happens. 4) I have 100% verified that I do not have any shift key bound to any function. I've even gone as far as making sure my auto loot key is not bound to anything. Normal advice hasn't helped me so far. Please help!Invictus8 May 29, 2012

May 29, 2012 Beating a dead horse: Worgen Auto-transform I know, I know, the API was changed and the addons do not work anymore. This makes me sad, so I was wondering something: I do not make wow addons, I don't understand the API stuff, and honestly, this may not even be something that would ever work but, you know how the player frames like xperl and pitbull can be set to visually show when in combat? Obviously, something in the programming allows the addon to read this. That being said, couldn't an addon use that code to detect combat, and then cast two forms (the spell, not the /transform thingy)? Cat the spell on combat, cast it again when combat ends? I am obviously not well versed in the technical jargon, but hopefully you get the idea and someone might try it if it's possible. I miss auto-transform :(Annacrusis5 May 29, 2012
May 29, 2012 Weird Bars.. Pitbull? Hello, i am currently running into a problem with my UI which i have not been able to resolve. The issue im running into is that a frame bar appears in the center of my screen, as well as some odd boss related info offcenter to the right... i would like to disable this feature. heres a pic http://i1088.photobucket.com/albums/i329/Drava23/oddbars1.jpg i was informed by someone that this may be pitbull, i am currently running 4.0, and if it is i have been unable to find the option within the config menu... Hopefully someone who has had this issue in the past will know how/where to go for config options. If it is not pitbull please inform me of the addon you think it might be, and where i might go to disable this. Thanks. DravaDrava5 May 29, 2012

May 29, 2012 cc mod...what is the name? Hello, I am looking for a mod but cannot figure out the name.

May 29, 2012 Focus + Entangling Roots Macro As I am not overly confident with macro syntax I am looking for a macro that will allow me to cast Entangling Roots on a mob, and then have that mob as my focus so I can see when the roots will fall off, and can then recast. Example would be the Trogg on the General Umbriss fight in Grim Batol. Any help is appreciated, cahirCahir4 May 29, 2012

May 28, 2012 Survey on interface customization in WoW Hi folks. As part of my masters thesis, I'm doing a short survey of the opinions of WoW players on interface customization. Mostly I'm trying to get an idea of the ways in which different players customize their UI's. The survey is very short (should take 5-10 minutes to complete), and it would help me hugely to get a nice range of people partaking. I realize that everyone's time is valuable, but hopefully the knowledge that you'll be contributing to SCIENCE(!!!) will encourage a few people :) If you've made it this far, <3, you can find my survey form here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDc4aUt1TDJBaG9JX1Y1OHJEd19vX2c6MQ Thanks!Sitahra2 May 28, 2012

May 28, 2012 Using Model/PlayerModel I've been messing around with the Model and PlayerModel classes, and I can't tell if I'm doing something wrong, or... I don't know. If I load a model with the Model class, I have proper animation control, but because I'm loading the model from the file, it doesn't load a texture. If I use the PlayerModel, loading the same file will load the texture, but then I can't control the animations - using the SetSequence functions results in it immediately stopping any animation I'm trying to play and going back to the standard idle. Is there some way to have the model load the texture AND control the animations?Katecia2 May 28, 2012

May 28, 2012 Macroing help needed So long story short, I purchased a Razer nostromo yesterday and the 15 button (right below the joystick) is in an IDEAL place for me to use as a shift button. So here's my question: How do I take the following macro which is bound to my F1 key ... and put in a shift modifier so that Shift+F1 will cast Heroic Leap? And will that work on the Nostromo by using my 15 button as the shift to activate it?Huggywuggles10 May 28, 2012

May 27, 2012 LF xperl help; re: target castbar I'm not a huge fan of the stock blizzard UI. But they have done some things really well with their design. Specifically, when you use the stock blizzard target frame, you can enable a castbar, complete with text of which spell your target is casting, and there's an icon that shows you if it's inturruptable or not. That's pretty cool. But its not very customizable, and Xperl allows you to make it bigger or smaller, and a slew of other customizations. The one problem with Xperl, however, is that when your target is casting a spell, the cast bar is on the same area as the name plate. If you're dealing with only one mob, this isn't a big deal, but if you're on a boss with adds that cast various things, or a 5 man dungeon trash pack, its very useful information to know both the mob's name as well as what spell its casting. I've really tried to look through the configs, as well as online. But I can't find any solution to this problem of the cast bar overriding the target's name, thus leaving it a mystery to which target you switched to, if that target happens to be casting a spell. If anyone has a fix or mod for the addon, or if I'm just overlooking something simple, I'd love to know. However, if not, then I guess it's back to using the stock target frame (which isn't so bad, after all). ThanksClandestino1 May 27, 2012

May 27, 2012 My UI using LunarSphere to free up keybinds Picture 1, out of Shadowform: http://i1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii589/chrolde-ysondre/WoWScrnShot_UI001.jpg I am using the following addons for my UI: X-Perl Chinchilla IceHUD Quartz Recount Prat SunnArt Bartender LunarSphere X-Perl setup: I've moved the X-Perl "Player" frame to the upper right next to my minimap. I use this primarily to show my buffs in the Warcraft default area for buffs. Its where I am used to looking. I have moved the X-Perl Target frame to approximately the same area that the Warcraft default for "Target" frame is located, again its where I am used to looking. The X-Perl "Focus" frame is located at the lower left of center area. Chinchilla: Chinchilla is a replacement minimap mod that offers a few nice additions to the minimap (more on that later.) IceHUD: IceHUD is the mod that makes the curved bars on either side of my character. In this picture you can see Health bars (green) on the left and Mana bars (blue) on the right. The innermost bars are the player bars. The outer bars are the target bars. But since I am targeting myself you see two sets of bars. When you target an enemy in combat the outer bars will change to that target's HP and Energy. IceHUD also shows the Target's Name, Level, Class and Guild. Quartz: What you can't see here is my Quartz cast bars. I tried to cast a Flash Heal and hit "printscreen" before it finished but I couldn't make that happen. I have a Quartz cast bar for my focus frame which will show just above the X-Perl focus frame and I use a Quartz "Target" bar which is pretty big in size which I have placed near the Top Center of my Screen. This is mostly for enemies casting on me. I don't use a Quartz "Player" cast bar as IceHUD provides a cast bar which will appear to the left of the IceHUD "Target Player's" Health bar. Recount: I use Recount for its "Real Time" DPS Graph and what I think is Recount's most valueable feature, the DOT Uptime window. If you are a dotting class this window can help you maintain higher DOT up time. Both recount windows are at bottom right. Prat: Prat is a chat box addon that adds a few features to your chat. SunnArt: Sunnart is the addon that creates the bar at the bottom of my screen. I love this look as it provides a backdrop to tie in all the addons and make them look like they belong together. Bartender: Bartender is the action bar addon. The first action bar is mostly my spells that have a cooldown. By placing them here I can more easily see whats on CD. At center is my Archangel/Trinket macro with Mind Spike and Mind Blast on either side. When orbs light these up its very easy to see with them being centered. Also I have two other Bartender bars that are hidden with spells that I don't really feel the need to see. All spells are keybound. I also have 2 Bartender bars on either side of my main bars. These bars hold things like potions and Battle Standards and other stuff I don't mind clicking. LunarSphere: Love this addon! More about LunarSphere in the next two pictures.Chrolde2 May 27, 2012
May 27, 2012 Can't click anything in the chat box? I think it's because of Bartender4, but whenever I click a linked item/quest in chat, it does nothing. I haven't moved the chat bar or anything, just added two extra action bars.Remiind2 May 27, 2012
May 27, 2012 looking for a guild bank deposit macro so i usually make 20 of a glyph at a time but keep most in the guild bank to make posting/organization easier and i was wondering if there was a macro that would leave me with 3 glyphs in my bags and put the rest in the guild bank eg, have 20 glyphs in bag it would deposit 17, if i had 17 it would deposit 14 etc thanksZe0 May 27, 2012

May 26, 2012 macro not working, but why? when I press the alt key with this macro, it should cast D&D, but instead, it only casts Pillar of Frost (no GCD) but won't cast anything after it (Blood Fury is also not on GCD).

May 26, 2012 Having trouble with use X if up, else Y macro I haven't played in a long time and I'm running into some frustration as I try to revive an old alt. They have several abilities which are one offs- use X if in melee, Y if ranged, etc., and I just want to neatly stack them up to keep my quickbar clean. Simply put, my goal is to use abilityX if at all possible. If abilityX can't be used, then use abilityY. /cast abilityX /cast abilityY and /cast abilityX; abilityY Neither work, but I can't think of a way around this other than perhaps a cast sequence macro but I refuse to believe that Blizzard would make double tapping the required work around for this.Frostpaw6 May 26, 2012
May 26, 2012 simple arena macro and UI help I'm new to arena and trying to write some macros. But I'm confused about targeting. I've seen macros with something like arena target 1 and arena target 2 but, how do I know which opponent is 1 and which opponent is 2? Also I know there is an option called enable arena unit frames or something like that, but I can't figure out what this is meant to display; it doesn't seem to do anything even though I have it enabled. Sorry, maybe it's obvious but I can't fiddle with the interface in the arena. The sort of macro I would like to have would be blind my focus, or if I don't have a focus, blind my target say in party chat, "blinding" and the name of the person I'm blinding Another macro that might be useful is to swap my target and my focus. Thanks.Rosenn5 May 26, 2012
May 26, 2012 Conditional Macro, need help :( Ok, I'm not sure if this is at all possible but.. I've been having trouble with action bar paging on my Rogue. Cheap Shot and Kidney Shot are both on my "a" key. I (apparently) press my Cheap Shot key too fast while stealthed (as to get it off asap), causing my Kidney Shot to also be pressed/used after the Cheap Shot goes off. No I'm not a moron, I'm not pressing the Kidney Shot way too late. My action bar still shows my stealth bar, it can be like a fractional second after Cheap is pressed.. Before you can visually see that it worked, or even before my NeedToKnow timer bar for Cheap Shot pops up.. Kidney will still go off. That's besides the point.. I would like help, if this is possible to do, to write a conditional macro to do the following: Cheap Shot by default; Kidney Shot IF Cheap Shot is either not applied/has 1 second or less left. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. Changing the key bind would be extremely hard to get used to, and "not spamming" the key isn't really an option in clutch situations in high rated arenas/rbgs. Thanks guys.Acoustic1 May 26, 2012

May 25, 2012 Tank setup for Vuhdo Sorry in advanced if this question has already been covered. I tried searching and couldn't find what I'm looking for. Recently, I switched from Healbot to VuhDo and still trying to make adjustments. My biggest peeve is having tanks together anchored to a particular spot. I have it set up currently for my groups to be in alphabetical order for the time being. Is there any way I can have the tanks anchored to a particular spot so that they are next to each other? Top right, bottom right, top mid, etc. I just want them to be either side by side or one on top the other but without using a separate frame for tanks only.Ashely1 May 25, 2012
May 25, 2012 Target marking macro stopped working /run local n=8 elseif IsAltKeyDown() then n=1 elseif IsControlKeyDown() then n=3 end SetRaidTargetIcon("mouseover",n) The above is a macro that was writting for me long ago, and unfortunately it no longer works. The concept was if I moused over a target and hit z, it would put a skull on the target. If I hit alt and z, it was an X, and ctrl+z got a moon. It doesn't work any more, sadly. /run SetRaidTarget("mouseover", 8) The above macro, however, does work. Which leads me to suspect it has something to dow ith the setting of n. Any help is much appreciated.Gruklaar4 May 25, 2012
