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.

Hi!

I'm playing with the german version and have problems too. I tried to use the addon in debug mode to see what's wrong, but... When casting spells, it seems as if only events of type UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEDED are processed. When PoM heals me or others, no debug message about this is shown. By the way, no timer bars are displayed at all.

Upon casting PoM on me the following debug message is shown:
UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEDED - player / Gebet der Besserung / Rang 1

When casting PoM on party members exactly the same message is show... and that seems to be wrong . I think the message should contain the name of the player that received the prayer.

My guess is, that the parser is not working correctly with non-english versions.

One final note: /mw about tells me that I'm running version 0.1. I downloaded version 0.2 (the zip-file was named "MendWatch-0.2.zip").

Polima, I think you have created a great addon and I would be happy if you could find out what's causing the problems some of us have...

Edit: I've downloaded and installed the english language pack. I don't have the time to test it in detail right now, but it seems to work fine.

I downloaded the last update too. It didn't fix that issue.

I've runned tests in debug mode and I think an event is not triggered:

when healing a party member, only the Spell_aura_gone message appears:
SPELL_AURA_GONE - CHAT_MSG_SPELL_AURA_GONE_PARTY : <party member name> / fade / <spell name>

when it heals me:
SPELL_BUFF - CHAT_MSG_SPELL_SELF_BUFF : 103 / heal / <spell name>
SPELL_AURA_GONE - CHAT_MSG_SPELL_AURA_GONE_SELF : 103 / fade / <spell name>

I thought about a parser issue, I updated every library but it did nothing new.
I absolutely don't know why it doesn't want to trigger that damn CHAT_MSG_SPELL_PARTY_BUFF !!!
I finally wonder if this is the right event. Are there non-english players running this addon perfectly or do I just have no luck ?

ps: Alaha, if by any chance you come back here, could you please check your PM ?

I downloaded the newest version and that fixed the "Expired!" issue. It's great to be able to see the buff on pets now! =) Thanks for all the hard work!

I found and corrected a bug playing on my FR client:
PoM jumps the first time and the counter goes from 5 to 0.
That's because of the "Prayer of Mending" not being translated at line 349. I just put BS["Prayer of Mending"] and that did the trick. Counter is decreased now by one for each jump.

Only this expiration remains.

Nice update, I appreciate that pet tracking.

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!

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).

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
