About Can't Heal You

Can't Heal You will automatically whisper people who you try to heal or buff, but who move out of your range or aren't in line of sight.  That way, they know you're trying, and can possibly move to help you heal them.

It works automatically -- you just cast your healing spells and buffs the way you already do, even if that's through Healbot, Grid+Clique, or whatever.  It also only whispers people who are in your raid, party, or guild, so you don't whisper random strangers you decide to try to buff.

    THanks for the update for 6.03

    I love this addon and it's my favorite right up there with my healbot. The incapacitated option doesn't work though. Every time I'm in a dungeon (RDF) and I get stunned or feared it's just says that I'm not in a party.

    I absolutely love this addon, it's my favorite and I can't imagine not using it. Been away from WoW for a while and just came back and this was the first one I downloaded :)

    I will do some testing for u and maybe submit a few bugs if there are any I know this was a toc update but will check for lua errors

  • #80

    I always get "Youre not in a group", whispering works though. Is it me or the addon? :S

  • #79

    Still works ok in patch 5.4 it does... I am sure it does not work as good as it can do but hey it is many patches old now... I am sure there are no lua errors yet

    Anyways I hope you find the love to play again... If you once enjoyed it then you should still do so... Maybe do a realm transfer of one of your favorite toons


    It does show that more than one person here loves your addon and your work

    Sorry to hear that efindel. Sounds like you hit a had string of bad luck man. Off the addon subject of course. We have a real great guild with some incredible memebers than may be able to keep your maind off other things. I hate to see you stop playing if the game is what you enjoy. Come hang out with Majestic Dragons on Tanaris if you ever decide to give it a whirl again. Really great add-on I will miss it! I do update the TOC files in most cases, but when it is dead dead I do give up and try to find something else.

    So... it's time to be honest with you all.  This is the situation:

    I originally wrote "Can't Heal You" for my wife, because she played primarily a healer, and was constantly having people in dungeons and raids run out of range while she was trying to heal them, be out of LoS, and so forth.

    And there's the problem.  My wife is now my ex-wife, having left me about two years ago now for someone she met on WoW.  Someone who was in our guild.

    So, I simultaneously lost the person I was writing it for - who was also my primary beta tester - and the main people I played WoW with.  I'd thought that after a while, everything in WoW would stop reminding me of her... but it hasn't yet, which makes trying to do anything with my addons painful.

    I'd been doing (slow) updates for a while, but right now, I don't even have a subscription - the card I had my subscription on expired, and since I hadn't been logging in anyway, I didn't change it.  I keep telling myself that I'm going to resubscribe and at least get on long enough to see what needs to be fixed in my addons for the current version and do that, but I keep finding excuses not to.

    I'd sort of hoped that someone else would come along and offer to maintain my addons, but it doesn't look like that's happening.  I'm not sure I'm going to get joy out of playing WoW again any time soon, and when you're not playing, working on addons feels like work.  (Especially since I'm now working as a programmer as my day job, which I wasn't when I created Can't Heal You and my other addons.)

    As far making it work goes... as with any addon, if you update the .toc file to have the current WoW version string, WoW will think it's up to date.  That won't affect the functioning of the addon in any way - it's no different than checking the box to run out of date addons and then enabling it.

    Addons can't do anything to WoW's own files - WoW runs them in a "sandbox", limiting what they can do, and one thing addons can't do is write to any files.  The only way they can save things is by asking WoW to save them, and WoW determines what files it's going to put them in.  The addon doesn't have any control over that, which is deliberate, to keep people from making addons that put viruses or other things on your computer.

    To get the current version string, look in the .toc file for any addon that is up to date.  It'll be in there.  It'll look like:

    ## Interface: 50001

    The number there will be different, and you'll want to change that line in Can't Heal You's .toc to match.

    I'm sorry, guys.  I've meant well, but WoW is still painful for me right now.  I don't know when or if I'm going to update again right now.

    That's a shame.  I don't blame you one bit for losing interest in the game and the add-on, though this was one I loved.

    Re: Can't Heal You - WoW 5.3

    Even though this add on shows out of date, is there any reason it would interfer with the warcraft files if it were enabled, and if not, is there any thing users can do to make the add on "think" it is up to date, that will also not cause problem with the game or add on?

  • #74

    I love the addon, but Its not working anymore.. is there an update coming ? There is no similar one.. so pls update it !! <3 NEED

  • #70

    Love the addon. Was wondering if there is a update coming or a way for it to broadcast to /instance since it is no longer a /party for 5m LFG. 

  • #71

    I'll look into changing it to use /instance.  Will probably be in the next month or so.

  • #73
