BigWigs Bossmods  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r13115
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.

Re: Bars not showing in Bigwigs

It would be useful if you enabled Lua errors in the "Help" section of the Interface Options, then type /reload and enable BigWigs, to see if any errors are appearing. Also, double check you're using the latest version of BigWigs by erasing all BigWigs folders in your AddOns folder, then installing.

People have experienced this in the past when using broken BigWigs bar skinning mods. If you get no errors, I suggest you reset to the default skin and see if that works for you.

Bars not showing in Bigwigs

Hey guys

Firstly I just wanted to say that Big Wigs is awesome, and keep up the awesome work!

my problem is that quite often recently my BigWigs bars will not show on boss encounters, I still receive all the messages and emphasised messages but no bars are showing. It is worth noting however I still receive DMB pull timers, only the Encounter bars fail to load on the pull.

I can /reload ui in the middle of combat and they load and work fine, but this disables my grid which being a MS healer, is not an option.

Any ideas what I can do to solve the problem? Really dont want to revert to DBM :S

Please and Thank you

Em

Re: Repeating

Sounds like you're experiencing the proximity "too close" sound. Clicking on the speaker icon on proximity mutes it.

Also, that sound seemed to have paused on Tsulong as soon as he cast his "The Day" ability.

Thanks in advance guys!

Anchors

Hi there,

I'm trying to write a minimod that dynamically moves the BigWigs Emphasize Bars depending on my raidlayout. Basically, I am trying to anchor the Emphasize Bars to my oUF raidframes. However, despite looking at the code, I just can't find an anchor other than the temporaty ones through the config menu. Could one of the authors shed some light on how BigWigs handles anchoring please?

Have a nice Day,

Lysiander

i am having a problem with the bigwigs timer.

I tried moving the timer bar using config to the place i want. but when the fight starts, it goes back to the orginal (not the position) i moved too earlier.

deleted all the bigwigs folder under the addon folder, did a fresh install but it's still not working.

may i know what happen?

Feature request: I don't suppose its at all possible to save layouts depending on party/raid size.

I have different raid layouts for 10man and 25man, would just be easy if i could have say emphasized text in different positions depending on party size.

Well i kinda don't want a whole new UI just for some borders on my BW bars and the skins that are out there do not fit in to my UI.
