About TCB

Shows your targets cast bar in a seperate (movable) window.

To see all available options:


Options summary:

/tcb this - this will set tcb watching your CURRENT target, even if you then change targets, it will continue watching the 'this' target.

/tcb target - will go back to watching your active target, changing as you change targets.

/tcb scale N.NN - applies a scaling to the window to change its size, either larger (scale >1) or smaller (scale <1)

/tcb deplete - the bar starts full and empties as time runs out

/tcb fill - the bar starts empty and fills as time runs out

/tcb reset - resets all options to their defaults

If you do not like my choice of colours for the bars and text, then you can specify your own!

/tcb col bi|bu|ti|tu R G B

bi - Interruptible Bar color bu - Non-Interruptible Bar color ti - Interruptible Text color tu - Non-Interruptible Text color

R/G/B are numbers in the range 0-1

For example, to set the interruptible bar color to what the default is:

/tcb col bi 0.16 0.1 0.5

Not the most convenient way of doing it, but in lieu of a colour picker window being available, it does at least offer the option.

    I love this Addon. Makes it very easy to tank. I see exactly what I'm target is casting and can run out of the fire.

  • #40

    Would be AWESOME if there was a TCB for Targets Target... Would be great for us healers.

    If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

  • #41

    From the description...


    /tcb targettarget

    I'ld realy like to use this add on but I can't.

    When I try to move the cast bar using the /tcb unlock command nothing happen (no grey bar or something else, it's as if I've done nothing). :'( Maybe someone could help me solving this issue 

  • #42

    Silly question but are you using /tcb config as your unlock command?


  • #37

    Use /tcb config

    Seems the instructions page has stopped updating from curseforge =/

  • #29

    TCB reported an error today for the 1st time since I started using it. I was in a warfront, The Codex, when I got this:

    Hopefully you'll be able to figure out what went wrong there.

    Do you know what you were doing at the time? I've played in many WF and not had any errors.


    :SetText() isnt used in that many places, and where it is,it is the other things that I would expect to cause an error rather than the call itself.

  • #38

    I cant get it to happen - makes tracking issues down a bit of a problem!

    The error shouldnt happen unless there is a problem with the data Rift is supplying.

    What is the format of the text you are using?

    Is it just spellName, or do you have some of the timers displayed? (elapsed/remaining), and is it over one or two lines?

    If you could post the contents of your riftfolder/Interface/Saved/acctname/servername/charactername/SavedVariables/TCB.lua file, I can try running with exactly the same settings as you and see what happens.

  • #35

    I got that error again, and once again when I was in The Codex. I was fighting some people at the flag, and I think it went off when they were trying to cap the flag and I kept interrupting it, not sure.

  • #34

    I assume that the text being displayed on the bar is just the spell name being cast?

    That I think is the only time that :SetText() itself will give an error, and then only when the spell name isnt known.

    I have put in some extra checking around what text gets displayed, so hopefully if a nil value is given for the spell name, it will not throw up any errors.

    Has it happened since, or was it a one-off ?

  • #32

    I think I was fighting 3 people at the Codex flag. We had the flag and they kept trying to get it, and I kept them busy for a bit. Don't remember when/what exactly happened to cause that error to popup, sorry.

    I've been using TCB since the very first version, and this was the 1st time I've ever seen an error msg.

    I was wondering what the default size is when using the "/tcb custom X Y" perameter so that I can work out the size I require.



  • #31

    Sorry for the late reply - been away from home for a while.

    The default custom size is 120x120

    You can do

    /tcb config

    To show the bar in config mode and then

    /tcb custom XXX YYY

    To resize as you wish. Put some big numbers in, and then make them smaller until they are the right size.

  • #26

    Nice Updates!


    So, how about the targets target?

    Or did I miss it?
