Doom CooldownPulse  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.2.11
by: Freki [More]

Note: Because I no longer play WoW, I cannot actively maintain this AddOn. At this time, the AddOn works fine, and I will continue to make an effort to fix bugs as patches are released. If you are an AddOn author and want to contribute to the code base, please feel free to submit a pull request to the AddOn's GitHub repository.

What does it do?
Ever wanted to know when a certain ability will come off cooldown, but you're too caught up in a fight to notice? Doom_CooldownPulse is designed to fix that problem! It flashes the icon of the ability in the middle of your screen whenever it becomes usable again.

Great! Now.. how do I set it up?
Doom_CooldownPulse requires no initial setup; just install and you're good to go! However, the options frame (which is accessable by typing /dcp) allows very easy customization. You can change all of the following:

  • Icon size
  • Icon position (press the unlock button)
  • Fade in time
  • Fade out time
  • Max opacity (transparency)
  • Max opacity hold time
  • Animation scaling (how big/small it gets when it flashes)
  • Cooldowns to ignore
  • Overlay color for pet cooldown pulses
It is intended to be very easy to customize, and your changes take effect immediately. You can see how your settings will look by pressing the "Test" button, or reset them to the default settings by pressing the "Defaults" button.

Isn't this very similar to another addon, JIM's Cooldown Pulse?
Yes, the concept was originally developed by JIM. However, JIM has since gone MIA due to his new job and no longer updates his addon. I was able to get in touch with him, and he is very much supportive of Doom_CooldownPulse. Doom_CooldownPulse is neither an updated version nor a direct clone, but instead an alternative option with the same concept.

Version 1.2.11
------------
- Updated TOC number for Patch 5.4
- Fix for some spells not appearing (thanks, vinsonb!)

Version 1.2.10
------------
- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)

Version 1.2.9
------------
- Updated TOC number (should no longer show as out of date)
- Added feature: Show spell name text on pulse

Version 1.2.8
------------
- Fix error introduced with 4.2 (sorry for the long delay, I don't really play anymore and wasn't aware of the comments)

Version 1.2.7
------------
- Fixed bit.band error from Patch 4.1 COMBAT_LOG_EVENT change

Version 1.2.6
------------
- Fixed a compatibility issue with Bartender 4 (thanks @ Codex)

Version 1.2.5
------------
- Should now properly save settings between sessions

Version 1.2.4 (Cataclysm Update)
------------
- Fixed error from "GetItemCooldown"
- Please let me know if any other issues occur with Doom_CooldownPulse in 4.0.1 by leaving me a comment.

Version 1.2.3
------------
- Updated TOC for Patch 3.3
- General code cleanup, including a few changes that should hopefully increase efficiency a bit

Version 1.2.2
-----------
- Overhaul of item cooldown monitoring, which produced condensed, more efficient code, and fixes problems with trying to ignore items you use from your cast bar via keybind.

Version 1.2.1
-------------
- Just a TOC version update to clear any confusion about whether this is still up to date (it is!)

Version 1.2
-----------
- New! Due to popular demand, you can now specify cooldowns you wish to ignore!
- New! You can now set a color overlay for your pet cooldowns (by default, there is no overlay)
- New! Missed the old heart-beat sound from JIM's Cooldown Pulse? Drag the lubdub.wav sound file from JIM's addon into the Doom_CooldownPulse folder and you now have a sound notification
- Fix: Now properly tracks cooldowns from items used from your cast bar via key-bind.
- Fix: Now properly tracks non-hunter/warlock pet cooldowns (mages: you may want to make use of the color overlay since Water Elemental's Freeze ability has the same icon as Frost Nova)

Version 1.1.5
-------------
- Fixed small but rare bug that prevented certain spell cooldowns (from what I've discovered, only Feral Faerie Fire) from not being properly recognized.
- Updated TOC version

Version 1.1.4
-------------
- (Error fix) Hunter's "Kill Command" ability should no longer cause an error.

Version 1.1.3
-------------
- Wait, pets have cooldowns? Well I guess we should monitor them too!
- Minimum cooldown increased from 1.5 sec to 2 sec so that slower wands won't spam your screen every 1-2 seconds.

Version 1.1.2
-------------
- Fix to error that would result from clicking an empty bag slot.

Version 1.1.1
-------------
- Added option to move the icon
- Added option to reset settings to default
- Added option for "max opacity hold time", meaning how long you want the icon to stay shown at it's highest transparency.
- Now tracks "delayed" cooldowns (e.g. Stealth, Nature's Swiftness)

Version 1.1
-----------
- New options frame accessible by /dcp

Version 1.0.2
------------
- Much nicer animation (imo)
- Fix for bug that would cause first cooldown used upon logging in not to be recognized.

Version 1.0.1
-------------
- Fix bug that would occur if you use an item in your bags that disappears after use.
- Clear cooldowns when joining arena (untested, but should work)

Version 1.0
-----------

to make this work with Bartender 4, replace lines 196 and 197 with
DCP:RegisterEvent("COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED")

Random Freezes - Mac OSX

I don't know if this is someone the creator of this addons can solve or if blizz should be in charge but anyway:

When I use the addon, I experience random freezes of the whole system, only solvable by pressing the power button to shut down the mac. System is OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Macbook 13"
Had to delete the addon, know everything is working fine.
Otherwise great mod (at least on windows)

As author in not playing since patch, has less time and is late with updates. Here is another (more up-to-date) version (in my opinion, much more sophisticated too): http://www.wowinterface.com/download...lse3.html#info

If that's not the case, can you tell me what particular action you are taking so I can replicate the problem?
Well, it just simply doesn't show spell lock of felhunters. (not on auto-cast ofc)

Hey there, Nice Mod.
I'm wondering however for the name of the frame that shows up, As I'm trying to bind some frames to it through kgpanels.

Yeah, I've seen it becoming more relevant to update the addon to compensate for cooldowns which change. This would require a pretty big overhaul but it's definitely on my list of things to do over the next little while.
