About CooldownCount

This addon displays a large yellow number (and text for numbers > 60 seconds) on spell icons for action bars, bags, character sheet, and quest icons in the tracker. Font can be modified, and the cut-off for how long a cooldown needs to be in order to display on the button can also be changed. The number begins flashing when time remaining is less than 10 seconds.

This is an update for WoW >= 3.3.5 compatibility since 4.0's new API nuked some of the code here. The original addon was created by hshh and the compatibility has been fixed by TheCheat5 and Kiki.

Additional Note: Tested and confirmed working after dependency update for Patch 6.0.2

    I've noticed the same thing with a glyphed Shadow Word: Death that failed to kill a target below 25% and all my mage CDs on the Murozond encounter after the hourglass is used, but the cooldown properly resets on my druid's starsurge when the shooting stars buff activates.

    Is there a way to make it only flash alternate colours for the last 4 or 5 seconds? rather than all 20+

  • #62

    Feel so naked without this addon, i saw on the Project site that there is a Beta release BUT is not working properly. hopefully a update properly mark as release come out soon Innocent

  • #63


    What's the issue you have with the beta version?

    My account is closed, so I don't know what is not working with the beta, but I might help making a proper release for the patch.

  • #70

    Comfirmed fixed ! Thanks again for the speedy patching ! This is one of the few mods I have trouble going without.

    Ok, I found the issue. Not fixed yet, but I found why it's not working (well, not working for everyone, works well with Bartender):

    Quote from Jaliborc:

    In the new patch there are two ways to make cool-downs
    - The "old" way, making a CooldownModel and calling :SetCooldown(start, duration)
    - The new way, making an action button and a cool down model and registering it with SetActionUIButton(button, action, cooldownModel)

    I'll try to post a fix soon.

  • #67

    I'll try to take a look tonight.

    There is no documented changes in the API so it's not clear why it doesn't work anymore.

    I suspect a change in the GetTime() function (I read this somewhere), so I'll take a look.

  • #66

    @paradox2028 are you using the beta version?

    I just tried it with Bartender (no other addons) and it works perfectly. (mind -> blown)


    Blizzards actionbar still produce the 'delay' with cooldowns showing to late.


  • #65

    Cooldowns appear too late. I'm using v3.7.2-beta on 4.3 client (40300).

    No Lua errors at all. When a cooldown finally shows up, it keeps working fine until 0. But there is a delay until they show. (in actionbars only. spellbook and bags do work)

    delay times seem to be consistent across spells and classes. 1min CDs apear at 48s left, 45s CDs appear at 26s left, etc… 

    Very confusing if blizzards CD animation is hidden. 

  • #64

    Currently neither Bartender or Dominoes will allow the overlay of the text with the numerical countdown. I'm not sure if this is due to a change in those mods or a change within CooldownCount. I believe that it is with CooldownCount because when I reverted back to the Blizzard UI bars, the numbers still do not show. However the blocking of the background animation with the swirl does still work. Like Alcarin, I'm also kind of lost without this mod. Makes it amazingly easy to tell when my cooldowns are ready.

    Thanks for the update TheCheat5, I was away for the past 2 days and was about to update it today :D
  • #58
    Nice Addon at first look BUT
    makes my UI like a Cristmas Tree

    Sugestion: Instead of having to Blacklist where CC shouldnt show up it would be better make it as default only visible in Buttonbars (please!)

    Add an option to list all frames that are in the ui as I have no clue how to blacklist them when I dont know what the name of it is...
    IE I use Metahud and I dont wanna see CC on the Buffs there :(
  • #59
    Okay I have to clarify that a little bit as I had an old version before yesterday as it seems - still even the latest version I cant get to NOT show the numbers on the Metahud buffs ;(

    Any help is appriciated!
  • #60
    you can use the in-game command /framestack (type it once to show the stack, once again to hide it)to display the name of the frames the mouse is over.
    It will help you blacklist your frames.
