GnomeSequencer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.3.0.1
by: semlar [More]

This is a small addon that allows you create a sequence of macros to be executed at the push of a button.

Like a /castsequence macro, it cycles through a series of commands when the button is pushed. However, unlike castsequence, it uses macro text for the commands instead of spells, and it advances every time the button is pushed instead of stopping when it can't cast something.

This means if a spell is on cooldown and you push the button it will continue to the next item in the list with each press until it reaches the end and starts over.

When you first install the addon you will need to rename "ExampleSequences.lua" to "Sequences.lua" and open the file in a text editor to add your own sequences.

The Sequences file contains a couple examples to get you started with writing your own sequences, I'll post its entirety here.

Lua Code:
  1. local _, Sequences = ... -- Don't touch this
  2.  
  3. ----
  4. -- Rename this file to Sequences.lua before you get started, it uses a different file name so as not to overwrite your existing file with a future update.
  5. -- Every entry in the Sequences table defines a single sequence of macros which behave similarly to /castsequence.
  6. -- Sequence names must be unique and contain no more than 16 characters.
  7. -- To use a macro sequence, create a blank macro in-game with the same name you picked for the sequence here and it will overwrite it.
  8. ----
  9.  
  10. ----
  11. -- Here's a large demonstration sequence documenting the format:
  12. Sequences["GnomeExample1"] = {
  13.     -- StepFunction optionally defines how the step is incremented when pressing the button.
  14.     -- This example increments the step in the following order: 1 12 123 1234 etc. until it reaches the end and starts over
  15.     -- DO NOT DEFINE A STEP FUNCTION UNLESS YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING
  16.     StepFunction = [[
  17.         limit = limit or 1
  18.         if step == limit then
  19.             limit = limit % #macros + 1
  20.             step = 1
  21.         else
  22.             step = step % #macros + 1
  23.         end
  24.     ]],
  25.    
  26.     -- PreMacro is optional macro text that you want executed before every single button press.
  27.     -- This is if you want to add something like /startattack or /stopcasting before all of the macros in the sequence.
  28.     PreMacro = [[
  29. /run print("-- PreMacro Script --")
  30. /startattack   
  31.     ]],
  32.    
  33.     -- PostMacro is optional macro text that you want executed after every single button press.
  34.     -- I don't know what you would need this for, but it's here anyway.
  35.     PostMacro = [[
  36. /run print("-- PostMacro Script --")
  37.     ]],
  38.    
  39.     -- Macro 1
  40.     [[
  41. /run print("Executing macro 1!")
  42. /cast SpellName1
  43.     ]],
  44.    
  45.     -- Macro 2
  46.     [[
  47. /run print("Executing macro 2!")
  48. /cast SpellName2
  49.     ]],
  50.    
  51.     -- Macro 3
  52.     [[
  53. /run print("Executing macro 3!")
  54. /cast SpellName3
  55.     ]],
  56. }
  57.  
  58. ----
  59. -- Here is a short example which is what most sequences will look like
  60. Sequences["GnomeExample2"] = {
  61.     -- Macro 1
  62.     [[
  63. /run print("Executing macro 1!")
  64. /cast SpellName1
  65.     ]],
  66.    
  67.     -- Macro 2
  68.     [[
  69. /run print("Executing macro 2!")
  70. /cast SpellName2
  71.     ]],
  72.    
  73.     -- Macro 3
  74.     [[
  75. /run print("Executing macro 3!")
  76. /cast SpellName3
  77.     ]],
  78. }



If you like one of my addons, feel free to support the cause!

7.2.0.3 - Attempt to avoid a potential infinite loop caused by changing the macro icon
7.2.0.2 - Attempt to set macro icon more aggressively
7.2.0.1 - Fix for icons clearing when zoning (it's unclear what's causing this)
r5 - toc bump for 6.1
r4 - Added a custom error handler and changed how macros are edited to improve support with other macro addons.
r3 - Resolved a minor infinite loop involving UnregisterEvent('UPDATE_MACROS') not taking effect until the next frame.
r2 - Added custom step functionality, pre and post macro text, and made the sequences file (hopefully) easier to understand and edit.

R5 not working

I can't seem to get Gnome sequencer to work anymore since updating to the 6.1 version. It was previously working for me before I updated.

I keep getting the "Failed to load sequences.lua or contains no macros..."

All the macros in the sequences.lua worked before the update.

I've tried previous revisions of the addon and still the same result. I have tried manually retyping the macros back into the sequences.lua file and still not working, as well, I have tried word pad instead of notepad and still no go.

Has Blizzard maybe broken this add on some how?

No and no!

Please use one standard through out your sequences.

you need to learn to escape special characters so if you are using ' as a command start then it is:
'tiger\'s fury'

Do not mix in " and [[ it is poor coding practice and leads to problems down the road when someone else has to fix your mistakes.

It should be printing a lua error to the chat in bright red when you log in; regardless, post the contents of your sequences.lua file here.
Sent u a private message sir


had to really shorten my macros because it was too long for the message

I'm afraid there's no way to do this easily with the way it's currently designed.

If you are asking how fast you should manually spam the key it depends on the size of the macro, and the individual skills' cool downs. however I have found a nice steady beat the best.

If you are asking about an delay for the Naga's auto shot function, please be advised you are risking your account by using it. The WoW ToU dose not allow any automation, and while the risk maybe small; I have known players who have had their accounts banned &/or suspended for using them.

You can't respond to events in the restricted environment during combat (SetAttribute from unsecure code will be blocked), so duplicating /CastSequence's behavior isn't really possible.

However, I'm always open to new ideas and suggestions for the addon if anyone has something they want to share.
