HotCandy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.7.1
by: Nevcairiel [More]
HotCandy is a Heal-over-Time tracker designed for Druids, but it also supports other healing classes with HoTs, like Renew of Priests, or Riptide of Shamans.

HotCandy was designed to be very simple and easy to use, with only a handful of options to customize the style of the bars. However its core is powerful and supports all known set bonuses and talents that increase the length of your HoTs.

HotCandy is driven by the CombatLog events and the cast events, those two in tandem provide it with all the information it needs to provide proper information about all your active HoTs.

You can access the HotCandy configuration through the Blizzard Interface AddOns Options.

Love this addon, but I'm having the same issue. If I cast rejuv after LB, the LB won't update.

same here

I deleted it and downloaded from different sites, still it doesn`t work.

any suggestions?

On Curse, there is a comment from someone with both a Druid and Priest stating that it works for his Druid, but not Priest. Which is unusual. The author even put out a new v1.6.4 (not availible here yet) with that fix that doesn't work for everything. The spellID for Renew is still 139, so the wrong spellID is not the issue.

So still waiting for a real fix.

To fix for 4.1

To fix for 4.1 go into the hotcandy.lua and

on line 306:

change

function HotCandy:CombatLogHandler(event, timestamp, clevent, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, spellId, spellName, school, type, stack)

to

function HotCandy:CombatLogHandler(event, timestamp, clevent, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, spellId, spellName, school, type, stack)


You basically add the 'hideCaster,' to compensate for the additional parameter added to combat events in 4.1. This can be used to fix a lot of other mods that involve combat log parsing.

Version from wowace seems to be working fine, however I tested it only on my lvl 40 druid so far. I really like this addon and how about adding an option to set space between bars?

I've been working on a new version of HotCandy that should hopefully fix the positioning problems. It's basically an internal rewrite for better maintenance, using some better logic and more cleanly seperated code, so no new features (yet).

You can grab the test alphas over at wowace: http://www.wowace.com/addons/hotcandy/files/

If everything goes smooth, i'll have a Release Version up here as well in a day or so.

Re: HotCandy Location Problem

Originally posted by FlawZuljin
After living with this for a long time, I decided to look for an update, since there's been no newer version I was able to fix the coordinate problem:

Go into your saved variables folder:

\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\%accountname%\SavedVariables

Find and edit the HotCandy.lua and look for the following:

["position"] = {
["y"] = -90.49635557765282,
["relPoint"] = "TOPLEFT",
["point"] = "TOPLEFT",
["x"] = 1.19427947787449,

I found mine was only off by a bit, so with some trial and error and modifying the coordinates, it worked perfectly for me.

I just saved and reloaded wow each time.
Your solution doesn't really make much sense, sorry.

I have also modify Hotcandy to see my earthsield buff, but I can't see how many stacks there is on the target.

Code:
earthshield = {
			id = 32594,
			duration = 600,
			stackable = true,
		},
Is there any chance to have an option to watch stacks on earthshield in the future.
I don't like to make modifications in the lua code of an addon, and I'm too noob for create my own
