BigWigs Bossmods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11753
by: funkydude [More]
Big Wigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter. These encounter scripts are activated when you target or mouse over a raid boss, or if any other Big Wigs user in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time.

If you're looking for boss encounter scripts for 5-man dungeons, these are not in Big Wigs, but live in their own add-on; Little Wigs.

Decided DBM had annoyed me more than enough with it having to force a UI reload nearly every time I wanted to change talents/glyphs so trying out BigWigs.

So far I'm digging it but there is one sore point - the lack of Brawler Arena functionality. Would you be able to get this in Big/LittleWigs?

Hey Funky.

Is there any way that you could add in the ability to align the timer, now that you added in text alignment a few builds ago?

Also, when editing a specific ability, is there any way for the back option to return you to where you used to be, not the top of the boss' ability list?

Broadcast to raid not working

I am having the same problem as Kendian here and its quite frustrating as I am meant to be the raid leader for our team yet I can't do a simple pull timer for all to see

I am using the version big wigs boss mods v.10882 and the timers work for me seeing them but not for other people and the only way I can get people to see them is by setting them to raid warning in channel and I'm pretty sure there is another way to do it

All comments to the post are welcome if you can help please give me a suggestion

Kind Regards

Pete.

There used to be a way for this to broadcast to raid. Am I missing it somewhere?

Hello,

I have a feature request.

Currently when Bigwigs announces that something has happened to yourself in particular it shouts "X is on YOU!". I would like the option to force it to say the character name instead of "YOU". When leading raids and having Bigwigs set to announce in raid warnings this becomes confusing and a little silly for the other people in the group.

Again, having the option to force Bigwigs to always announce character names instead of "YOU" would be great.

Still using 10689. I'm guessing it's something with bigwigs and world bosses. Cause I get a similar error on Nalak today.

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\BigWigs_Core\BossPrototype.lua:723: Module BigWigs_Bosses_Nalak does not have a .db property, which is weird.

This one showed up today in 10689.

v4.1 (r10633)
Added a dual spec, auto profile-swapping feature.
Added a bunch of off-by-default auto marking into boss modules that were previously separate addons e.g. Tortos, Lei Shi
Added an "Align" option for the BW message frame.
Added a new bar style, "MonoUI".
Added ability to temp-emphasize test & custom bars.
Added player count to proximity.

Fixed a rare error when registering a bar style.
Fixed emphasize not counting down when bars are disabled for that option.
Fixed a rare error when disabling a boss ability.
Fixed a ton of profile swapping bugs.
Fixed a display bug where boss sound options wouldn't display global sound options.

Various module improvements.

Not without editing the lua file, sorry.

And thankyou! That's what I call swift and efficient service. I also noticed the Mono UI option and love it.

Thanks again

Re: Big Wigs skin

That's not quite what I said. I said that BW now bundles a new bar style called "MonoUI". This style is in the latest release and is similar to the skin you were looking for. There is no need to actually go and download the Mono UI, though, it's built in already.

Just pointing it out here in case someone was looking for it as I did.

Not sure I'm even posting this in the right place!

But if anyone could help me just change the message alignment, I would be most grateful
