BanzaiAlert  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r116
by: Rabbit [More]
Okay, so I got tired of dying to random trash mobs and considered what I could do about it, and I thought "the first thing I need to know is when I get aggro", so I made a mod that tells me:

BanzaiAlert!

It has options for sound, message, LowHealthFrame flashing, and comes prepacked with a female voice that says "Aggro" when that is the case (from Squishy). It defaults to printing a red warning to your Big Wigs message frame, but also supports SCT5, MSBT, Blizzards FCT and the UIErrorsFrame, where it displays "Aggro from Anubisath Guardian!", for example.

It can also notify you when you lose aggro, if you're a tank, for example.
It has an option to disable it when you are playing solo or not.

BanzaiAlert was made as a proof-of-concept implementation for BanzaiLib. It will plug itself into oRA2 as a Participant/AggroAlert module if available.

I've used it for a few raids now, and I don't think I can live without it any more.

The way it works is just scanning your raid for targets and then firing Ace2 events when the target status changes. Currently BanzaiLib supports 4 events: Banzai_UnitGainedAggro, Banzai_PlayerGainedAggro, Banzai_UnitLostAggro and Banzai_PlayerLostAggro, and has 2 API methods: GetUnitAggroByUnitId and GetUnitAggroByUnitName.

Yes, it should be working again now.

I'm sorry, but I don't really pay much attention to the comments here, please use the wowace forums next time

Thanks.

Still testing, but I believe disabling the 'onlyInGroup' option has got BanzaiAlert working again.

BanzaiAlert broken?

Hi Rabbit (or anyone who can help),

I was using BanzaiAlert and oRA2 just fine in the past, but recently (couple weeks, I think) BA hasn't been working. I have BugSack and it catches tons of errors almost identical to the ones thehurricane posted below. I can record lots of them and provide them to you if you'd like. I deleted my BanzaiAlert.lua SavedVariables file and completely wiped out the BanzaiAlert addon folder and re-obtained it from wowace.com/files (and update it daily with the AceUpdater) but it's still throwing these weird errors. Any idea what's wrong?

P.S.
The errors thehurricane posted below are very similar to mine, except mine usually say that BanzaiAlert tried to call the protected function 'sRaidFrames:SomethingSomethingBlahBlah' and usually refers to a function that messes with the sRaidFrames location. I can post or send you detailed logs later once I'm at home if it'll help.

Edit: I should note that "Aggro Alert" used to show up in my oRA2 menu, but it does not any more. Looks like other people are having similar issues (there's a couple mentions of it over at http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=2375.80 where people seem to have a bit of success if they disable the "onlyInGroup" functionality).

Alkar, that's because you're running some other mod that uses Banzai-1.0, possibly aUF_Banzai or Grid. They have both been updated, you can get them at www.wowace.com/files

If you downloaded from the list called "Archived Files (Old Versions)", you would get an incompatible one.

You have to click the large "Download" image at the top of the page:
