Quartz - Modular Casting Bar  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2.2
by: Nymbia, Nevcairiel
Quartz is a modular approach to a casting bar addon. An overview of (hopefully most of) the modules:

*Player
The core of Quartz is lightweight implementation of a standard casting bar, with configurable size, text and icon positioning, and colors.
*Target/Focus
Implementation of target and focus casting bars in similar fashion to the player cast bar.
*Buffs
Display of target and focus buffs and debuffs as duration bars using the new API introduced in patch 2.1.
*Flight
Hooks into FlightMap or InFlight to display the current flight progress on your casting bar.
*Global Cooldown
Displays a tiny spark-bar to show your Global Cooldown near the cast bar. Helpful for those who'd rather not squint at their action bars to see when they can cast again.
*Interrupt
Changes the color and text of your casting bar to help show that your cast has been interrupted (and show who interrupted it).
*Latency
Displays the amount of time spent between cast send and start events, in the form of a bar at the end of your casting bar, with optional text that displays the actual duration of the lag. This helps in canceling casts when they will not actually be interrupted, especially for users with consistently high pings.
*Mirror
Shows the 'basic' timers such as breath and feign death, as well as some 'odd' ones such as party invite time, resurrect timeout, and arena game start, and a framework for injecting custom timers into the bars.
*Range
Recolors the casting bar when your cast target moves out of range mid-cast.
*Swing
Displays a swing timer for your melee weapon as well as hunter autoshot.
*Timer
Allows for creating custom timers displayed on the mirror bars.
*Tradeskill Merge
Merges multiple casts of the same tradeskill item into one big cast bar.


Use /quartz to bring up the configuration menu.
- Fixed cast time in EnemyCasts Module
- Proper support for extending channeled casts
- Fixed a Lua error when targeting enemies who channeled a spell

Differences from NECB?

Besides the lag timing feature, what other significant differences are there between your mod and the NECB?

this is a great mod to use for maximizing healing/dps output in conjunction with a stopcasting macro. The only problem is that i have to watch my castbar intently to see when to start the next cast. If only the mod could make a little ding noise right before a spells castbar when into the extra latency zone (with an adjustable offset to accomodate different ppl's reaction times), so i would know when to recast without watching my castbar like a hawk

Is there an option to adjust/remove the "fade out" of the casting bar after a spell is cast? If not could we get one please?

As a hunter with steady shot rotation you want start your next steady shot when the swing timer is into the autoshot lag area for the best rotation.

- X.
Yeah, the one tricky part is where to get the latency number; we can't "deduce" it in the same was as we can for a full-on spellcast.. so the question is, do we trust the game's ping number, or use the measured amount from the last spellcast?

Only request is that you somehow signify who your focus is. Right now all I'll see is their casting bar, buffs(should it be an ally, or foe w/ detect), and debuffs. Nothing about who is my focus.

Personal suggestion would be to add a name plate and/or a portrait.
Hrm, that may make sense in a seperate module.. I'll think about it

Here is a screenshot to kinda show what I'm talking about.

Bigtrouble is the top bar, Quartz is the bottom cast bar. I start casting a Steady Shot shortly before my Auto-Shot was going to go off so that Steady Shot was delaying my Auto Shot from triggering. The amount delayed in this screenshot was 1.0 seconds and bigtrouble displays that.
Ah, I see. May take a little while to get it right, as I don't have a hunter with steady shot.. but I'll see about getting that added.

I play in 1440x900 reso and I can't see some of the buff bars I was wondering if you could add in functionality to be able to scale ALL of the bars in quartz.

Thanks a lot for a super addon.
The latest version should have the options you need (maybe not a scale option, but there's height/width/font size stuff)

Thanks in advance
Set two spells of different schools to primary and backup -- so like, frostbolt to primary and fireball to backup. That way, if one school gets interrupted, you can still see the cooldown using the other spell.

It would be nice to make the whole bar turn a different color so you could know the split second you can start another cast.

Thanks
I like that idea, I'll get it thrown in soon.

Can I turn off my own castbar and just rearrange the groups at each orther's side? Maybe I dont even wait for the answer and try it tonight.
Not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but it should be doable

Turn off 'Mirror Bar' in options.

Now, So far I love Quartz, but I'm having two major problems. (Major to me at least ^_~)

The Personal buffs that are in the middle of the screen, e.g. I'm a warrior, and in the exact middle of the screen it will show me my timer for B.S. Rampage, Enrage, Death wish, the Stuns I place on the enemy etc; I want to move them, that's all, I can't find anywhere in the options list for it, I thought it would be in player: nothing worked, buffs: nothing worked.
Quartz shouldn't be showing your own buffs, unless you're either targeting or focusing yourself. So it's likely another addon.
And the second problem is the swing timer, It's one of the main reason I downloaded this mod, and I can't get it to appear anywhere, and it's starting to frustrate me, Any help would be great.
Should show up by default on the top side of the casting bar.

Hey Nymbia, I am loving this mod so far. I have a request though.

I've used bigtrouble for Auto-Shot delay (swing for yours). If you're still casting when Auto-Shot is supposed to go it get's 'clipped' per say and you lose Auto-shot time. Bigtrouble times the amount of time clipped and it is displayed on the top-right of the bar. Is it possible to add that as a feature for the Quartz swing bar? It's the only thing that keeps me still using bigtrouble.
