Upcoming custom timer work

3 posts in this topic



This stuff is in alpha now. Or will be in next general release.

New timer features
1. Countdown text/audio can now be added to timers, both personal and broadcasted
2. Timers can now be looped indefinitely or until canceled. They also auto terminate when EndCombat fires for any active boss mod as well so any loops started mid fight will only last until fight end.

Old commands which have not changed

Starts a one time timer for self no one else sees
/dbm timer <sec> <text>

Starts a one time timer that is sent to whole raid if you have promoted status. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast timer <sec> <text>

New commands

Starts a one time timer for self no one else sees that now also includes countdown audio/text

/dbm ctimer <sec> <text>

Starts a one time timer for whole raid if you have promoted status that now also includes countdown audio/text. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast ctimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for self that no one else sees.

/dbm ltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for whole raid if you have promoted status. Terminated by sender or when fight ends. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast ltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for self that no one else sees that also includes countdown audio/text

/dbm cltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for whole raid if you have promoted status that also includes countdown audio/text. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast cltimer <sec> <text>

Terminates ANY timer loop created by ltimer or cltimer

/dbm timer endloop

Additional Notes:

1. Like any former custom timers, any sender can be ignored to prevent harassment with feature.

2. As noted above, loop functions are disabled in LFR because there is no good reason to use them there. The loop functions are intended for the personal use or organized raid use and not trolling people in LFR.

3. If you don't like either the countdown audio or countdown text, these new additions honor your pull/combat timer settings. This way, if a raid leader prefers to broadcast ones with countdowns, you can disable the counts so incoming "ctimer" act like "timer"

4. You can disable the "x sent you a timer" message in General Message options. Note, you won't be able to ignore that sender unless you re-enable this message since that's where ignore button is.

5. Loops are controlled by sender. The SENDER must terminate loop. Also, only one loop per sender, however you can have two different senders do two different loops.

      Added complete mod for Skorpyron with data available from heroic testing. Added stub mods with only combat detection for rest of bosses in zone Hellfire Citadel:
      Added new feature to mannoroth to Assign icons/yells for wrath of Gul'dan by role (TANK/HEALER/DAMAGER). This option is not on by default and must be set by raid leader only. Wrath of guldan on mannoroth will now have voice pack sounds for what mark to move to. Legion Dungeons:
      Added mods for all bosses in Blackrook Hold with all data available from normal testing Added mods for all bosses in Darkheart Thicket with all data available from normal testing Added stub mods with only combat detection for rest of 5 man bosses in Legion Bug Fixes
      Core:
      Some fixes to timer recovery to hopefully make it work more reliably on some cases. Fixed bug where you may get lua errors on combat end against Legion bosses. Fixed bug where range radar would throw lua errors and not work correctly with Demon Hunters in group. Hellfire Citadel:
      Fixed a bug on Xhul where it was warning to taunt swap before the boss was in phasing phase. Fixed a bug where HUD dot would still show for mark of legion even if HUD was disabled on mythic Archimonde Fixed a lua error for voice pack users on Blackhand mod. Changes
      Core:
      Updated to latest LibChatAnims for Legion compatability. DBM core now lets you set warning duration for on screen warnings as low as 1 second, down from previous 3 second lowest setting. Changed default countdown audio for all countdowns to begin at 4 seconds, down from 5. (mods that already use less than 4 will continue to do so) Name labels for HUD should hopefully now show up on alert circles even for names that aren't in range. Hellfire Citadel:
      Further refined add cancel timers on mannoroth to try to be as precise as possible on whether or not the add will come or not during a transition. Reduced yell countdown for mark of Legion on Mythic Archimonde from 5 seconds to 3 to still accomplish purpose but with less spam.

    • Legion Alpha: Nythendra Kill/DBM Testing
      By MysticalOS
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AscCWM0dOuI
      In This video I'm testing a mod on a boss that has never before been pulled that I drycoded before hand using only journal and spell data from wowhead. For most part the mod worked pretty well to warn for important debuffs and already had working yell countdowns and the works. The mod of course lacked perfect timers and instead used the built in AI system to try and learn some on the fly which it did but not perfectly since it's hard for ai timers to perfectly learn how phase changes reset timers and such. You can also see the debug I run in chat and transcriptor of course running to log fight to complete mod later (and the mod is complete now).
    • 7.0 Progress Report
      By MysticalOS
      Things have appeared quiet around here on DBM end but this is because work is well under way for Legion 7.0 content.
      Currently DBM already has full support for all dungeons and raids for pull/wipe/kill detection and basic features like range finder and other manual commands. 
      For raid mod support, all tested bosses so far (3 raid bosses so far) have full and functional mods.
      For dungeon mod support, 2 dungeons are fully supported right now. Backrook Hold and Darkheart Thicket
      I will start publishing test videos and then linking to the threads in this sticky so you can see my testing first hand and development process for many of raid test bosses. I'll also update this thread when I do updates and add more bosses/dungeon support.
