Reminder: Special Warning Sound Config

3 posts in this topic

*Doing a repost of an earlier page that didn't get enough views since DBM didn't have a news feed yet. This article should show you how to customize your DBM sound experience to be more effective in dungeons/raids.



When will this feature be available?
Now! It's been available since May 2013.

Why do we have an enable/disable for a feature like this?
It's a pretty complex feature and one that certainly clutters ui up. It may be more than what some users desire of their UI.

How to Enable?
This feature is always available.

How to Disable?
It can no longer be disabled. It's on for all to stay.

Why do I only see 3 sound options?
Something is wrong with LibSharedMedia. Since this is now packaged into DBM, this should no longer happen. Report a bug on DBM forums if you cannot get it to show more than sounds "1", "2", and "3".

Why do I not hear my sound?
It's possible you selected a sound that is no longer on your system. Basically, you have an invalid sound selected in your special warning now. Make sure SharedMedia is loaded and a valid sound is selected in your special warning.

Why do sound names differ on different characters/accounts.?
The DBM duplicate filter removes duplicate sound paths so whatever addon is first mod to register a name with LibSharedmedia for sound file is one that wins. Some mods try to use consistent naming to ensure it lines up regardless of which mod registers first. Other mods like to name stuff different though. For example, on my paladin, clcinfo is earlier in alphabet so it registers "explosion" and "you will die" with "clcinfo" in name before Omen or DBM can register better names for them. Far as functionality is concerned though the correct sound will play regardless of what name won out in the sound list.

How do I get rid of the "You will die" warning everytime I pull aggro. I've tried just doing the "No sound" and all that but it still says it everytime I pull something..its quite annoying.

      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.
