About BadKitty


BadKitty is a debuff tracker for Feral Druids. Originally designed to accurately track Mangle's remaining time regardless of how many Ferals or Arms Warriors were in the raid, it has grown to track all buffs, debuffs, and cooldowns important to every cat (and bear) who cares about their damage output.

Savage Roar, Mangle (Trauma included), Faerie Fire, Rip, Rake, Tiger's Fury, Berserk, Glyph of Shred charges, Omen of Clarity, Predator's Swiftness, Demoralizing Roar (Demo Shout, CoW, Vindication included), Lacerate, Thrash, Pulverize, and Barkskin are all tracked and take into account any overlapping debuffs that may exist in your group or raid.

In both Cat and Bear Forms, two options are available for you. A small bar frame akin to many simliar mods, and a unique 'warning' frame that displays on your screen images of any buff or debuff that will soon need your attention. These two options can be used independently or simultaneously. Color, texture, and opacity options are available for these as well.

If you have any errors, questions, comments, or suggestions, put them in the comments here, or come bug me on Gul'dan (look for Anatinus). I try to improve BadKitty when I can, so your words will not fall on deaf ears. Happy Shredding!

Fixed the warning shape/direction slider and radio buttons.

    I've been trying to isolate it but it is a pain because it has only happened (since I started taking notes) to happen when I'm in a party, usually a raid. And I need my addons in a raid. But I installed buggrabber and bug sack, and here is what it produced tonight:

    14x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "BadKitty" tried to call the protected function "CompactRaidFrame2:Show()".
    !BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:276: in function "CompactUnitFrame_UpdateVisible"
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:234: in function "CompactUnitFrame_UpdateAll"
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:46: in function <FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:43>


    That probably doesn't help, but I'll keep trying things.

    I don't know if BadKitty really taints the Blizzard raid frames since I don't raid with my Druid, but I know for sure that AuctionMaster taints them which results in a similar stack trace. Sadly it's not as easy as fixing all leaked global variables, at least in AuctionMasters case, so maybe fixing the leaked globals isn't enough for BadKitty too. See here for more details and a daily that can be easily used to test the taint problem:

    Nothing besides trial and error in determining the cause. If I get a chance this week I'll clear out the rest of the global variables BadKitty uses (see cremor's comment below, it's overdue), but I'm not convinced that's causing your problem.

  • #1020

    It has been happening to me for several weeks, I believe, and it probably happens every session. The addon keeps ticking though.

    Since this has been happening for awhile for me and no one else has reported it, it seems reasonable to think that my particular setup has an issue. I should point out that this doesn't happen in my first fight when I log on, although I can't discern a pattern. But since it is in the middle of fights, I don't stop and take notes. ;) 

    I will try disabling some other addons and take better notes. Any advice you can suggest?

  • #1017

    Thanks for the update, but version 2.5.4 still sets a huge amount of global variables with common names (e.g. i, unitCaster, expirationTime, duration, enable, start, ...).

    Please see this list for all global set variables:

    Those that are prefixed with "BK" are fine, but all others should either be local or also have a prefix.

  • #1014

    Uploaded BadKitty 2.5.4. It is updated for 5.1 and I fixed the "local _" issue.

  • #1011

    Please do set "_" as a local. After 5.1, I couldn't do even move in shapeshift form without getting a huge explosion of errors, indicating that BadKitty was trying to call CompactRaidFrames and was being blocked. I popped open the main LUA file, added "local _" at the top, and now it's working perfectly again, with no errors.

    Anyone who's comfortable with coding can make the same very, very small change - open BadKitty.lua in a text editor. At the very top, hit enter a few times to move everything down. On the top line, type "local _" (no quote marks). Save the file, then launch WoW. Should help remove a lot of errors, if you're getting any. :)

  • #1013

    Ugh I thought I fixed that. I must have....dreamed fixing it? I haven't been getting errors.

    I'll do it today.

  • #1016

    At least it was easy? :) Thanks for the official fix!

  • #1015

    ...the code was in there but commented out. How silly/embarassing.

  • #1010

  • #1012

    try /script BKDefaultSettings()

  • #1009

    This addon sets a huge amount of global variables, especially the _ (underscore) variable. This is a big problem since a part of the Blizzard UI uses this global underscore variable and breaks if it was set by an addon. Background:

    Please use FindGlobals ( or Wow Global Finder ( to find these code errors and fix them!

  • #1008

    This is by far my favorite addon. I just wish there was a Windwalker monk version of this (wink, wink. nudge, nudge).

  • #1006

    I uploaded a new version to Curse. Thrash is now active in Cat Form.
