MendWatch  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.2
by: Polima [More]

MendWatch attempts to track the priest spell Prayer of Mending. A timer bar shows the current target of the Prayer of Mending spell with a countdown of how long the spell will last. When the target gets hit the amount the Prayer of Mending healed for will be shown and the bar will slowly fade away. If the Prayer of Mending jump to a new target a new timer bar
will be shown for the new target.

This is a preliminary release. I'm still working out the details of how to successfully parse the combat log and spell casting mechanics to effectively track Prayer of Mending. For the most part the mod works rather well but does show some inconsistent behaviour sometimes.

There are some configuration details available via the /mendwatch or /mw command. The most important is "/mw anchor" to reposition the location of the timer bars on screen. The remaining options are just some standard candybar details to tailor the visual appearance.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE 01/29: I wrote MendWatch during my time on beta, and was happy with its rough state during that time. Now that I've hit 70 on the live servers I plan on resuming development. I should have a new release ready to go in the next few days with some of outstanding issues fixed.

UPDATE 02/05: Finally got around to fixing some of the problems:

1) I've updated all the underlying Ace2 mods. I hope this will solve some of the problems with localization for non-english players, and reports of problems with MendWatch and Chronometer.

2) The bug related to "attempt to concatenate local 'name' (a nil value)" has been fixed.

3) Tracking of pets is now included.

Hello Polima,

thanks for your very useful mod!

I have the following error message when i'm playing outdoor ( work fine when i'm in a dungeons ) :
Interface\AddOns\MendWatch\MendWatch.lua:496: attempt to concatenate local 'name' (a nil value)

I'm playing in French. Hope you can fix it.

Thanks,
Regards,
Itania.

Great Mod, soon as I got this spell I was thinking I needed something like this!

feature suggestions only, i havent had any bugs yet

1) ability to reduce how many people are shown - I only really want to see the current and the last person it was on

2) an alternative to my first suggestion - compact mode? just show the current person and what the charge is.

3) Filling mode - have an option to: have the current target stay at the top and fill down on previous targets. this way the current target never moves, easier to find in a heavy fight at a glance

sorry if this doesnt make a whole lot of sense, typing this between pulls in steam vaults =)

once again, great mod and thankyou for the work, its quite helpful for me in the new 5 mans

Once again, great mod. Only one of its kind. I only have one complaint. It seems when PoM jumps to a pet, the mod dosent track it.

Thanks

Odd that it only happens outdoors. Regardless, I see what the problem is and I think I've got it fixed. Will be in place in the next release.

Regarding #1 & #2, I think I can get that done easily enough by adjusting the fade time for the bar. If its set to zero then you'll get your compact mode, if its set to a smaller number then you'll get more along the lines of suggestion #1. I didn't do much experimenting with the fade timing during beta. I'll see what I can do about that in the next release or shortly thereafter.

As far as #3, I agree the way it gets filled is a little strange. I'm somewhat at the mercy of how the underlying CandyBar mod operates in terms of bar placement, filling and removal. I'll have to look at what CandyBar can do for me, or if I can modifiy it slightly. I'd definitely like the filling to happen in the manner you suggest.

I believe the version of BabbleSpell (a mod that does spell name localization) I was using wasn't terribly robust. I've gotten a new BabbleSpell and it seems to have the translations
for Prayer of Mending for German as well as many others. The next release should have support for you and other non English wow players.

Yes, its doesn't track pets. I never partied with any pet classes during beta so was unaware of this limitation. However, I know how to fix it and will have it ready for the next release.

Polima-
I think you have a great mod, and it fills a very useful role in my UI.

However, as part of my UI I also run a mod called "Chronometer" (which is also Ace2 dependent, I believe) which tracks the duration of my SWP/Renew/VT etc. Unfortunately, when both your mod and Chronometer are enabled at the same time, several problems occur.

First, while /chronometer still shows the list of possible commands, trying to run those commands (/chron anchor, for example), I receive an error message and they don't work. Second, when I cast a renew on, say, myself, your mod gives me another error message. These are problems that do not occur when either Mendwatch or Chronometer are disabled.

Is there any reason why these two would be having such bad interactions? I'd very much like to run both mods, if possible.

I run Chronometer as well but do not experience this problems. I'll grab the latest version of Chronometer and test this out to see if I can reproduce the problem.

Lua error

I just installed this nice addon today, and it is just what ive been looking for for PoM.

However, it doesn't do me much good since i get a bug:

Interface\AddOns\MendWatch\MendWatch.lua:496: attempt to concatenate local 'name' (a nil value)

This happends every single time i am in a party, and the spell jumps. I had to disable it in the middle of a run, because i just couldnt take the constant errors i got every time it moved to a new player.

I then proceded to test if it was another addon that made the problems. I thought that Natur Enemy Cast Bars might be the problem, since other users say they have problems with Chronometer, which i guess is similar. I updated my NECB and tried again, but there was no change. Then i tried disabling ALL other addons than MendWatch and thought "This must surely help" - nope, same problem. The addon still gives me an error when the buff jumps.

So even if Mend Watch is the only addon running, i get the error. I cant for the love of God think up what might be causing it, cause im sure you wouldnt upload your addon before you fixed a problem like that - but what else can it be?

Oh, and the bars that tracks the buff also stops. The buff itself continues to go on, ofcourse, but the bars doesnt appear except the first.

Nice to see you around Polima.

Since I know this spell, I was looking forward to reaching lvl 68, testing the spell and this addon.
I play on a FR client and I get no errors when running Mendwatch.
However it has a strange behavior when healing someone else:

the character takes damage, PoM jumps to someone else but his bar turns red with the text "expired!" instead of the healing value.
When I take damage, the bar goes green with the right value.

I'm really fond of this feature and will patiently wait for updates.
Keep up the excellent work

I got my fix

I just wanted to add something to my post below. I got a guildie of mine to look at the lua for me, and he fixed a few things here and there and my addon is now working perfectly.

I would post the update here, for those others that seem to have the same problem, but a) People would suspect that i might be uploading big, dangerous viruses, and b) I dont really want to mess with Polima's work

Overhealing

Hey dude, thanks a bunch for the mod, I love it.

Not sure if you have this planned already or if it'd be a pain to implement, but where it shows how much the PoM healed for would it be possible to show the actual amount it healed for and then the overhealing in brackets? (like what Scrolling Combat Text does).

Expired?

This is the same issue I have. It's driving me crazy! I also use SimpleCombatLog, so I figured it was a problem with the log not showing some value the mod needed to parse. So I turned them ALL on... and all I got was a cluttered combat log. I can't see the healing values in my combat log either. So I'm not sure if my issue is with the log itself or the mod.

Can you shed any light on this?

PS- Fantastic mod! Until someone pointed me here I was becoming very frustrated not even being able to track who the buff was on, much less what it healed them for!
