TinyDPS  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

by: Talyrius, Sideshow

TinyDPS is a lightweight damage and healing meter.

Looking for an addon to measure damage and healing without adversely affecting your gameplay experience? TinyDPS should suit your needs. By excluding unnecessary features (graphs, pie charts, extensive data collection, etc.) and offering a minimalistic interface, TinyDPS attempts to maintain a balance between information and performance.


  • Options are available by right-clicking on the frame or minimap button.
  • To move the frame or button, while holding the Shift key, click and drag to the desired location.
  • For resizing of the frame, click and drag the bottom-right corner.
  • Toggling frame visibility can be accomplished by clicking on the minimap button or typing /tdps.
  • In addition to the option in the right-click menu (under Fight), all data can be reset by middle-clicking the frame or minimap button. Similarly, the back and forward mouse buttons will allow for quickly switching between displaying overall or just the current fight's damage/healing.
  • Available slash commands (/tdps <command>):
    help or ?, reset or r, damage or d, healing or h, visiblebars <number>, whisper <name>, reportlength <number>
Known Issues and Limitations
Intended Behavior
  • Pet data is attributed to the owner.
  • Vehicle/mounted combat data is ignored.
  • Overhealing is ignored.
  • Absorbs are added to healing.
  • Unlike damage, healing won't start a new fight.

Only thing it's missing is the option to hide when out of combat (or a toggle)

maybe add a command for resetting stats, the reset button in the menu is not very userfriendly placed

attempt to index upvalue 'tmp' (a nil value)
anyone else having this error ?

if anyone else has errors, don't hesitate to PM me all the data which could include: the lua error itself, the tinydps.lua file in folder character/savedvariables

Tested this out, works wonders.
Uses very little resources, as promised.

Only thing it's missing is the option to hide when out of combat (or a toggle)
Add that and it's perfect.

Looks very promising Any way to add multiple windows, like in Skada (one for damage and one for healing)?

EDIT: oh and maybe add a command for resetting stats, the reset button in the menu is not very userfriendly placed

This is exactly the type of dmg meter I've been looking for however sadly I keep getting this error every fight on any type of mob :/

Message: Interface\AddOns\TinyDPS\TinyDPS.lua:665: attempt to index upvalue 'tmp' (a nil value)
Time: 05/21/10 16:06:42
Count: 4
Stack: Interface\AddOns\TinyDPS\TinyDPS.lua:665: in function <Interface\AddOns\TinyDPS\TinyDPS.lua:585>
It shows my ghoul pet doing 100pct of the dmg where it shows I do 0 percent even if I do most of the dmg.

Will there be a way to enable this while solo, so we can test our dps/configure the addon's look more easily?
