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.

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.

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 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 ?

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.

Regarding v0.2 and German clients.

Babble-Spell is unfortunately not up to date. Edit the file MendWatch\Libs\Babble-Spell-2.2\Babble-Spell-2.2.lua and replace the translation with

["Prayer of Mending"] = "Gebet der Besserung",

in the section for "deDE", and the first spell cast correctly triggers the bar to appear. I'm in the middle of a raid, so no more information at the moment, but I'll update this post in a couple of minutes.

Edit: Jumps are shown correctly, too.

Suggestion

Suggestion: Instead of the background color of the bar being gray while waiting for the spell to proc it would rock if it would be the color of that class.

Raif, thank you for your hint. After correcting the translation and adding the call to Babble-Spell on line 349 as Jashugan reported, everything works fine !

Hmmm.

Not really sure if this is Mendwatch's fault (great mod, by the way); but I've been having an addon conflict as of late, that started around the same time as my first use of Mendwatch, where my SCT mod would not show over heals in my message window despite the fact that it was turned on, I really need to get to the bottom of this.

Thanks, and idea

First off, thanks for a wonderful mod, this makes my favorite spell much more useful.
Second, with the new 10s cooldown, would it be possible to add a small bar showing the cooldown time remaining? Then I can watch the same spot for all my ProM needs.
Thanks for considering,
- Aranthar

There's a lack for non english client.

Replace line 349 of MendWatch.lua by :

if n == BS["Prayer of Mending"] then

(original is: if n == "Prayer of Mending" then )

Feedback and a feature request

With the patched Babble lib this works fine on German clients.

However, the visual player I am, I have a feature request:
Is it possible to attach the prayer of mending bars to the corresponding Unit Frames? So, if a prayer is on party member 2 the bar is shown at his unit frame (with a configurable x/y offset)?
This would really improve the usability of this mod. Of course if the corresponding Unit Frame is not visible (or if it jumps to a non-group member in a raid) it will be displayed at the anchor position.
