    It should be working fine (even 1.4.1 on here). There is currently an issue with repeating timers (Waves on Akylios and Lava in RotP are an example of these). Try the latest alpha below, this fixes that issue and adds extra mechanic support to FT and EE.

    Recent Example of first boss in FT:

    You should still see a Phase Monitor, and Encounter Timer at the very least (this would show its working). Experts don't generally have timers but there is a sprinkling of alert support (would require a LOT of research to go through every expert and find legitimate timers), most of FT and EE do though.

    After installing, and when in game. Open up the KBM options screen and ensure the KBM version matches " Alpha". It'll be in the right hand panel.

    When should we expect the Dark Ichor on Matriarch to be on the tank swap mechanic? I'm main tanking EE and I'd like to be able to use the clean UI you have available, but atm I'm just useing 2 Kalerts (one for me and one for other tank/focus) which takes up my focus target to do so (which on Matriarch I like to use).

    It should be working in the latest alpha, so 1.4.2 Release will also see this implemented.

  • #178

    The latest on CurseForge does include the changes. The change log just hasn't been updated yet for encounters (there's quite a long list of additional EE and FT support).

    I've passed on Encounter development to Ivnedar, since he's more active with raiding and I have a lot of work to do converting practically everything over to a new API system in 2.2. I'm going to work purely on the engine and additional plug-ins. Keeping encounters up-to-date and improving the engine was just too much for me alone.

  • #177

    is there anyway I can get my hands on this alpha? I checked the curseforge 1.4.2 before making that previous comment, but didn't see a Matriarch tank swap in the changelog.

    I recently deactivated this addon because I did Hammerknell last night and against King Molinar and the Prince, there was a HUGE RECTANGLE IN THE MIDDLE OF MY SCREEN that I can't move or edit!

    It was literally blocking my entire character and covering about 30% of my screen (my resolution is 1440x900) which is bad for me because:

    a) I need to see my animations so I know my next spell rotation

    b) I use Karuul Alert and I have 8 alerts setup around my character (which were blocked by the huge rectangle in the middle of my screen)

    c) I can't see ground AoEs

    The percentage monitor can be both moved, resized and disabled if required.

  • #169

    I turned the castbars off in the general configuration, but for a lot of encounters they are specially activated though. That can be pretty annoying. I like the addons readycheck, rezz master, add watch and timers, cause they offter unique information, but I don't need castbars or warnings. If I do anything wrong, just tell me.

  • #170

    This is a side effect of how I implemented global cast-bars. I'm looking at a better way to do this so that there is a global off-switch for all bars. For now unfortunately, it'll be a matter of turning them off via the encounter's "cast-bar" tab. So, as you come across each multi-cast-bar encounter, open up the options screen, go to the encounter in question, and disable them locally.

    I admit this isn't ideal, but until I rewrite how cast-bars are managed it's the only solution for now. But, as I said, they will be getting an update shortly and should behave better on the global level.

  • #167

    I've noticed recently that the Fonts inside the configuration menu's tend to be blurring.  Is this something I can fix some how?

  • #168

    The latest Rift Hotfix #5 will sort this out. It was an issue with Rift itself, not Addons. :)

  • #163

    KBM is one of the most stable and helpful addons I've ever used. I've used it for over a year without a single issue. However, for the past week,  I'm receiving, in my chat scroll, the message informing me that there's a newer version of KBM, though I've downloaded and refreshed the newest version which is also the version mentioned in the message telling me to install the newest version. I always delete the older version, prior to installing the new version, so there can't be an issue of only the older version being recognized.

  • #165


    i got the same message but not update on curse

  • #166

    One of the alpha versions slipped out as a Release version internally. 1.3.6 should be fine.

  • #164

    First off, thanks for the kind words, and the feedback.

    Unfortunately this shouldn't be possible. But, in the lovely world of online programming anything can happen. I'll keep an eye on it and try and figure what could posisbly be causing it. There are alpha versions out, but these shouldn't trigger update messages for to Release versions of KBM.

    Another long shot is someone has changed the version in the Toc file to something obscure. The only time you should be notified is once every 15 minutes, but only if someone joins your Group/Raid, you join a Group/Raid or someone logs in to your Guild. If you can pin-point who's causing it, maybe have a word with them :)
