About bCast - Cast bars

bCast adds more customizable cast bars into rift. Supports player, target, target of target and focus cast bars with profiles.

New in 2.1:
- Bar for global cooldown display

New in 2.0:
- Support for non-player bars.
- Options window
- Profiles support

Profiles are account wide, so remember to make different profiles for different characters (or roles) if needed.

When updating to 2.0 from previous versions, all settings will be reset. Shouldn't need to do this again, so should be just a one time thing.

Ingame commands:

/bcast help - Prints this help.
/bcast config - Opens the options window.
/bcast profile <profilename> - Changes the current profile.
/bcast lock - Toggles the locking & unlocking of the cast bars, allowing them to be moved.
/bcast reset - Resets the current profile to default values.
/bcast gcd <position> - Changes the global cooldown bar position, valid values are above, below, none.

For bar settings, you need to specify which bar you want to change with its unit name.
Valid unit names are: player, and focus.
Any command without a new value will print out the current setting.
/bcast <unit> width <new width> - Changes cast bar width.
/bcast <unit> height <new width> - Changes cast bar height.
/bcast <unit> texture <new texture> - Changes cast bar texture, texture file needs to be in bcast\media\ folder.
/bcast <unit> fontSize <new size> - Changes font size.
/bcast <unit> width <new width> - Changes cast bar width.
/bcast <unit> font <new font> - Changes the font, font file needs to be in bcast\media\ folder.
/bcast <unit> fontColor <R G B> - Changes the font color in RGB, range 0 - 255.
/bcast <unit> icon <icon position> - Changes the cast icon position, valid values are left, right and none.
/bcast <unit> barColor <R G B> - Changes the bar color in RGB, range 0 - 255, for example, default bar color would be 51 201 255.
/bcast <unit> unIntBarColor <R G B> - Changes the uninterruptible bar color in RGB, range 0 - 255. Doesnt work for the player bar.
/bcast <unit> timeStyle <style> - Changes if the cast time is shown as time already spent casting (done) or time still left in the cast (remaining).
/bcast <unit> pushback - Toggles the pushback display on maximum cast time, only works on the player bar.
/bcast <unit> enable - Enables the bar.
/bcast <unit> disable - Disables the bar.

- Fixed cast bar not appearing when unit is targeted mid cast

- Some optimizations
- Fixed a bug where moving the cast bar with /bcast lock would not move the GCD bar with it
- Fixed a bug where moving the cast bar with /bcast lock and using the options window afterwards, would reset the cast bar to its previous position
- Fixed changing profile with the bars unlocked causing some odd behaviour, changing profiles now locks the bars first

- Added support for a GCD bar

- Rewrote most of the addon to allow for new features more easily
- All settings are reset from previous versions
- Now includes options window accessible with /bcast config
- Added support for target, target of target and focus cast bars
- Added support for profiles

- Refined the disabling function, new commands: /bcast toggle, /bcast hide, /bcast show

- added a command to disable the addon

- Updated for 1.6

- fixed a bug with custom bar color setting, where it only saved partially
- fixed a bug with the interrupt fade and custom bar colors

- fixed a bug that sometimes prevented cast icon from changing between casts (again)
- pushback display now works on channeled spells as well

- added option for detailed pushback display
- fixed a rare case where a cast didn't have an ability name with it, preventing the cast bar from working

- added new customization options: barColor, truncate, timeStyle
- added the option to reset everything to default values
- fixed a bug that sometimes prevented cast icon from changing between casts

- fixed a bug that prevented the cast bar from being updated

- initial release

    Honestly hating it. The bars are too large, can't seem to move them, also the what the target is casting's bar is way too large for a target out of all things and set in the wrong place.

    I hate to be rude, but seriously? Try reading the instructions. I mean they are right there. You can unlock, move, resize, change color, change font size, change font, change texture and all kinds if other things with the in game commands clearly listed above.
