Dungeon Finder Bang
Version: 1.2-1
by: natch [More]
DFBang by Natch

Ever missed a Dungeon Finder queue because you were surfing and had WoW in the background? No more! This addon will unmute sound (if muted) and play a sound when the Dungeon Finder accept window pops up (even when backgrounded.)

There are a few configuration options for controlling
the volume of the playback, have a look in DFBang.lua for details.


4.0.1 patch update:
I have removed the ability to set your own soundfile in the configuration
until I can find a clean solution to a certain problem. If you really want
your own however you can still muck around in the code or overwrite bang.mp3.


FAQ:

Q: Will it re-mute (if originally muted) my sound after playing the sound?
A: Of course.

Q: Will it disable background sound playback (if disabled before) after playing the sound?
A: Indeed.

Q: Will it set my volume to what I had before if I enable loudness?
A: Aye.

Q: How many dungeon queues have you missed since you wrote this addon?
A: None!

Q: Is there a similar addon for battleground queues?
A: There is now! You can find it here.

Q: Background sound doesn't work!
A: There seems to be an issue for some where addons cannot enable background sound, so you have to do that manually unfortunately (check the Background sound checkbox in sound options). I've tried to fix it but nothing works. Sorry for the inconvenience.
v1.2-1: Toc update.

v1.2: Should no longer turn off sound automatically when you don't want it to.

v1.1: 5.1 update and making sure SFX volume is above zero while playing the bang.

v1.0b: Updated for the sound effects change (better late than never?)

v1.0a: 4.0.1 update.

Re: Didn't work for me

Hoping it was a volume issue - but still nothing.

Any ideas?

Oh I'm running windows 7 x64 in case it could be a permissions issue?

Thanks
I do not have Windows 7 so I don't know if that would be an issue, but I doubt it. Did the sound work at all during that session? Did you install the addon correctly? Did you replace bang.mp3 with your own file or change mySoundFile to something else? If you did, make sure you didn't misspell the new file (and new file should be wav or mp3.) You could try setting iRHasOwnSoundFile to false and see if that works. Let me know how it goes.
