About AltTabber

What it does

AltTabber is a small addon which will play a notification for the following:

  • Looking for group
  • Raid Ready Check
  • Battleground
  • World PVP Battleground (Wintergrasp and Tol'Barad)
  • Brawler's Guild

Where to get it


I have setup a donation site via Plegie. Feel free to donate if you like this mod. I have put countless hours of time and effort into it along with many people who have helped me. I did not write this mod with the intent to make any money from it, I wrote it to help me with some needs that I saw in-game.

How to get it to work

You don't have to do anything to get it to work. It will automatically play sounds for ready checks.


There is no interface, it just works.

    I'm not sure if it's just me but sometimes bg queues wouldn't make any sound for me since 5.3 I'll keep an eye out for which type of queue. Love this addon :)

    2nd thought, you should just team up with the author of Safeque cause then you guys would have an addon like 10 million people would need.

    this addon doesn't work for me. i've done about 8 battle grounds with it enabled, i have backaround sounds enabled.

    however, battleground bang works everytime and it hasn't been updated for 6 months.

    maybe you should copy that addon and paste ur ready check sound instead of a guy yelling.

    cause i rather hear a readycheck then someone yelling lol
  • #8
    With the new LFG option, would be nice to get a sound for it too =)

    great idea but works way too strait forward, it just enables sounds in background, all sounds, i can do it 1-click in game sound menu. probs not possible but will be great if that addon plays just readycheck noises on minimized WoW
  • #6
    No, it works differently. You need to have background sound on for it to work, but not normal sound.

    Basically if you have normal sound on, it doesn't do anything.

    If you don't, it'll check to see if background sound is on, if it is it'll play the readycheck sound.

    Is it 'Enable Sound' or 'Sound Effects' that must be unchecked?
  • #4

    Noticed that the embeds were bad, this should fix them and help with any problems people may have been having.
