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 mod for Cenarius from heroic raid testing. Some Mythic stuff drycoded Added mod for Ilgynoth from heroic raid testing. Added a mod for Dragons of Nightmare from heroic raid testing. Note this mod is still very much incomplete since testing of this fight didn't go well for most groups. Added mod for Renferal from heroic raid testing. Mythic additions to Nythendra from mythic raid testing. Added mod for Xavius from heroic raid testing. Note: Phase 3 was bugged and he was not using most abilities during it so phase 3 timers are incomplete. Updated Ursok mod with a few more features for handling charge (such as auto soaker assigning) as well as latest data from mythic testing. The Nighthold:
      Added mod for Tichondrius from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Aluriel from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Telarn from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Krosus from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Star Auger Etraeus from heroic raid testing. Some mythic mechanics are also drycoded but untested. Added drycoded mod for Elisande prior to Tuesday, May 3rd raid testing. Updated scorpyron mod with improved timer auto correct code for greater accuracy in all difficulties and added mythic timers. Legion Dungeons:
      Added trash module to Arcway dungeon. Improved warnings and timers across Arcway dungeon.

      Fixed a bug that caused Mythic archimonde timer for conduit to show as "unknown" if short text timers were enabled. This was caused by using a spell id that doesn't exist until legion to auto localized the short text. Legion Dungeons:
      Fixed LUA error on Glaidalis (Darkheart Thicket) Fix some lua errors in Eye of Azshara Changes
      Added a new auto localized special warning text for defensive abilities/CDs instead of most tank warnings just being generic spell names. Hellfire Citadel:
      Changed HUD colors for lines on players for several offensive debuffs from green to yellow to fit more in line with philosophy that red is bad stuff not on player that player should avoid, yellow is bad stuff on player that player should get out of raid and green is a "move to" line that tells player to follow line to get somewhere.

    • 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, most tested bosses so far (11/12 raid bosses so far) have full and functional mods. 3 raid bosses have drycoded mods. 1 Raid boss is ALMOST fully functional but just needs to see longer pulls (Dragons of NIghtmare). Very few were able to do this during testing. For dungeon mod support, 9 dungeons are fully supported right now. The 10th dungeon (violet hold) is only partially supported do to nature of RNG involved in seeing all the bosses. 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.
