About Death Note

Death analysis tool.

Death Note records the events preceding a death and presents them to you in a comprehensible manner. If you have used Acheron before, this addon has been inspired by it.

How to use

  • Check the data capture options in the interface panel and make sure that you are comfortable with the default settings.
  • To view the recorded deaths, use the option in the right-click menu of a unit frame. Or, if you have a LDB display, you can also open the Death Note frame from there.

Not so obvious stuff you can do:

  • Right-Click on the list of deaths to change the ordering.
  • Drag a column separator to move it.
  • Click on a time or health column to change its display format.
  • Click on a spell or source to highlight all occurrences of that spell or source.
  • Control+Click on a spell or source to add that spell or source to the list of filters (removing all the lines with that spell or source).
  • Right-Click on a line to send a report to a chat channel starting from that line.
  • Shift+Click on a column to paste its contents to the chat edit box.
  • Control+Mouse wheel to change the frame scale.

Added an option for enabling the unit popup menu entry for DeathNote (disabled by default). This should fix the taint issues.

    Doesn't seem to record data for grouped players who are temporarily hostile (like Garrosh MCs, including when mind controlled yourself) when only Grouped Players is checked.

    I have a suggestion. The text in chat when someone dies could include the cooldown X used when he died if he used any. I always check in the log when someone dies if he used any personal cooldown.

    This would imo be a really big improvement for the addon.. Thanks for making the addon. I love it.

    An example output how it could look like: X was killed by Y's Z () (with Fortifying Brew)

    Is there a reason why the Death Note option doesn't show up in any right-click menus all of the sudden?

    I can open the addon with the minimap button or command, but the right-click menu option is completely gone :/

    It has been disabled by default because of the taint issues it causes. It can be reenabled back in the options.

  • #44

    If you don't care about the taint you can enable it in the options. If something isn't working file a bug report and I'll look into it.

  • #43

    when can we expect update?

  • #40

    I submitted a ticket for this, but in the meantime, if you want to fix the set focus taint, you can open DeathNote\UI.lua, go to line 948 and remove the entire line. It looks like this:

    tinsert(UnitPopupMenus[v], #UnitPopupMenus[v], "SHOW_DEATH_NOTE")

    That will remove the entry from the unit dropdowns.

    I get a Blizzard blocked a function box with disable/ignore, and when I downloaded buggrabber, I got the same error as SignOfDoom.   

    I've noticed it only happens after I open the death note log, close it, and then I change zones, whether I died in a raid or ported from org to shrine, if i get a loading screen, then I get the disable/ignore option.  I can then reload ui and it won't error again, until I open the log again.

    I get this too. Death Note worked perfectly before this started happening. Don't know what the cause is either. Please check this! I love this freaking great addon.

    15x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "DeathNote" tried to call the protected function "IsDisabledByParentalControls()".
    !BugGrabber-r194\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>

    it took me forver to figure this out but i hunted it down and death note will not let me Focus a target. "<addon xxxx> has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI.
    You can disable this addon and reload the UI." (options: disable / ignore)"

    I thought it was dbm since xxxx = dbm then when thats disabled xxxx is another name etc.. after i disabled deathnote i can focus again.

    Right now im using /focus as an alternative but can you please fix this!!!!

  • #35

    Works fine, thanks.

    How do I change where the "Show Death Note" appear in the dropdown menu (rightlick a unitframe). I'd prefer to have it above "Leave party" and not below)

    Disabling the option is also an alternative since /dn works just fine.
