BigWigs Bossmods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11875
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.

FD, can you do me a big favor. I keep updating this mod for my son (his char is the raider so far) and I have to keep updating your update at each download. In the lib libraries almost every toc that is buried is at 30000...except the one in libstub of libstub...its at 20400...a little out of date. i don't know what other addie I have that makes the game sensitive for me to ones that are still partly out of date...even if it's more than 1 layer deep in file folders...but this addie...every new one keeps coming up out of date for me. I go into every single file folder in the bigwigs file itself and about 75% have to be changed and then it doesn't come up with addon out of date. I have gone through this addon and its many updates till I think I am going to start shooting the lib files in my dreams! lol Sorry if this sounds like a rant...I'm trying to be lighthearted in my frustration and also letting you know where I found a small (?) problem. AFter going through this thing as many times in 2 (3?) days as I have, i appreciate what programmers go thru...It's just not my calling, I fear.

Re: a true update?

How exactly does this matter? Those toc's aren't loaded by wow.

Feature Request for the memory impaired

I have a terrible memory and am always forgetting to loot items for quests and other items of importance besides loot from quest-mobs, mini-bosses, and bosses. There was an addon called Emblem Reminder that would track when the first person looted a corpse that had an emblem it would then track in a window everyone in raid/party who didn't loot one yet. Then you could click on it to remind whomever including yourself to get their emblem.

I would like it if somehow you could add an option to pop-up a window after the fight that would remind you to loot important items for that encounter/dungeon/boss/special-mob.

Just an Idea for an already awesome mod that has made it so that I actually am able to follow the happenings during a boss encounter.

TY again!

If someone wishes to make that a separate plugin they are free to do so.

I've noticed the "Test Bars" interface appearing sometimes during combat, especially during aoe. My guess is that I'm double clicking on active bars somehow. Is there any way to hard lock the addon so no amount of sloppy clicking will cause these boxes to pop up?

edit: or better yet, any way to make the bars click through?

edit 2: seems this happens when alt clicking a bar, even when in combat. any way to disable this?

I'd suggest a flash'n'shake alert for Freya + 3 for when ground tremor is being cast, and the ability to specify how many Hodir debuffs you can have before getting a warning. 2 is fine for the debuff achievement, but you're going to have to eat more for hard mode.

Emblems auto-loot now.. If only 1 person in a raid loots it, all get their emblem..

I would love to know this; for me it is unfortunately quite hard to read the text with outline

Well that's the theory.

I've noticed several times in 5-man heroics when 4 out of 5 people get the emblems when the 1st person loots, but one person still has to visit the corpse and get his own.

Hello! This is probably going to sound scrubsauce, but I was wondering, what happened to the little audio ding that bigwigs used to make for Flash Freeze on Hodir? I actually used to rely on that to carry me for Freeze alerts, but it seems to have been removed a couple versions ago.

Think you could add it back for audio-reliant and poorly-skilled people like me?
