This has been happening over a month. There are gold bars over all the DBM timers. I can right click them away but often they come back within a minute or two. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling DBM and I checked my settings. Here's a screenshot...

I find it unlikely it's a dbm only issue. It's probably some UI skinning mod that is breaking it.

I don't use any UI addons, except OmniCC. I doubt that could affect DBM?

You didn't disable the skins module did you?

Nope. I don't even know what that means.

Huh. Okay, thanks though. I'll try disabling various addons. :)

Please do, and report any findings. I'd like to narrow down cause.

Im having the same issue and I noticed that were both hunters. I have not seen any type of fix for this.

Hunter certainly has nothing to do with it, we don't do anything special for hunters. Maybe a mod hunters like to run? Just disable all mods but dbm and see what bars do.

I may have found the solution to this, after reading upon post by other players. It may be an issue with VEM and DBM running both their timers at once. More information can be found by reading the comments posted here concerning the gold bars caused by VEM.

I solved this just be completely disabling VEM and running only DBM.

That's no surprise really. That actually explains your double warnings/range frames. I should have caught that sooner.

 

VEM is mostly a ripoff of our work but with modifications (some decent ones sometimes, although their coding leaves much to be desired, it's horrid). I did ask them to change any code that would interfere with or break DBM in any way though. Looks like they haven't done that with timers yet.

 

Side note:

I'm not very happy with the amount of work VEM copies when I slave 16 hour days on ptrs to give users boss mods for new patches and they copy my work, modify it a little, then ship it out. Sigh. Of course, our current license permits this since it's creative commons. I actually took some feature ideas of theirs back for DBM at one point (license works both ways) so we actually got something out of the deal instead of nothing. Of course, we didn't like their code so improved upon it quite a bit for anything we integrated :)

In 6.0, I may be releasing future mods separately from core package, so they can be under a new license that prevents plagiarizing.

My timers are fixed, and I'm still running VEM and DBM at the same time. I think. I unistalled some out of date addons and a couple PvP addons I was no longer using and it seems to be working fine now.

They may have fixed it too, no idea. I know we didn't. Their mod is a fork of ours, so they are the ones that need to make sure it works right.
