About BossTactics

BossTactics improves and simplifies explaining boss tactics in World of Warcraft.

Development Has Restarted

Knetik (aka Czarknetik) has taken over this addon in an attempt to keep it going. This has been a great addon that has helped many guilds to simplify fight strategies and setups.

Sorontur's final statement before handing it off

After over 5 years of WoW, it is time for me to end my time ingame. It was really a great time, raiding with so many friends and achieving so much. Cataclysm is really not what WoW used to be, so this is a good point to stop this. But this also means, that i will not continue my work on BossTactics. I put really much effort in it and I hope you have had lots of benefits. I tried it in 4.2 and there where no lua exceptions for me, so maybe you can use it for a while until Blizzard again changes the complete API. Maybe someone likes to continue the work, feel free to do so, just send me a message on curse and i will grant you permissions.
So this is my good bye to you! Have a good time in Firelands. Sorontur

Main Features

* Tactics for all Raidinstances ingame * Maps for every bosslocation, to show where people have to stand * Buttons for playerpositions * Raidleaders can add/remove/move/name Buttons * Raidleader chat * Control if people are actually watch the right scene * Short Bosstactics for the Raid-chat * Sessions for explainig a Bosstactic * Save your own tactic for Bosses or Trash and switch between yours and the standard * Trash tactics, if available * Ping on the map * Paint on the map * Chat channels for classes and rols * Synchronizable tactic texts * Queries for Addon- and Item-Checks * Assigning tasks to tanks, healers, and special roles depending on the bosses * ID tracking for all your characters. Realm independent. * 5-man instances quickinfos and tactics * Raid leaders can start acclamations

Instance Modules

This version contains only the framework, if you like to download only a few instance modules, you can find them here: Dragon Soul Firelands Pack of all Cata-release Modules Throne of the four Winds Blackwing Decent Bastion of Twilight Baradin Hold Cataclysm 5 man instances Pack of all WOTLK modules (i know this link is sometimes broken, still this is a curse issue, i have no clue why. just try again later) BC-Modules

Video Guides

I've set up a video guide for raidleaders to show all the functions containing in BossTactics. You can find it on youtube: Part 1 (Without Music) Part 2 (Without Music)

Bugs

This is a well tested release but still bugs can be there. If you find a bug please tell me at www.bosstactics.net/forum Thanks for help.

Slash Commands

/bt or /bosstactics for overview /bt show opens bossframe (check the others in the overview)

Changelog

See changelog.txt in the BossTactics folder.

Localization

If someone likes to add language support to BossTactics you can post the locales here: http://www.wowace.com/addons/boss-tactics/localization/. The strategy texts are too big for this feature so there it cannot be used.

    recently downloaded this and some mods for bc, northrend and cata and installed through curse client but when i try and load the bc's they load but dont show anything and with the others when i try and load them it says there missing?
  • #305
    do you see the modules in your addons list when you are staring wow?
    in bc most of the texts are missing in english but the images and buttons should be there. wotlk is complete for english and german, cataclysm sure, too :)
    please check also if you have any lua exceptions.
  • #306
    I'm having the same sort of problem with Cataclysm dungeons. It's loaded, it shows loaded, when I go into a dungeon it says it loads the appropriate 5man stuff... but I never see anything. Do I have to do something to activate it? Do I need to be the leader?

    Thought it would be easier for you to fix the bugs like this.
  • #300
    thanks, i forgot to check these modules. i updated the BC module pack with working modules
  • #301
    Cool, thanks for the update. Though when loading Serpentshrine Cavern getting this bug:

    Though loads fine.
  • #302
    yes i checked, this is a localiation bug :( but you can make a quickfix by your own just add
    L["ra Vashj"] = ""
    somewhere in the Locale-enUS.lua
    i will upload the fix, when i added the model ids for the bc instances.
