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.

    Hi. A request;

    Would love to see the Death report announces compressed and shortened down, just like it is when you right-click a specific line to report.

    The format of the damage-source text that is. 124200 into 124k, etc.

    Not going to be adding any new features to it for now, but it would be much more likely that I will remember about it the next time I get to work on this addon if you open a ticket about it.

  • #30

    Will do. Thanks!

  • #27

    Is it possible to have a slash command to turn this off/on? I ask as sometimes in LFR I cant lagged on so want to reduce addon use. Deathnote records a lot of data I find useful in real raids so I dont want to reduce wants recorded.

    Its a great addon that I have used for years now, great job :)

    I believe this addon is broken for output to guild and officer chat. The lines in output.lua function "chatmessage" don't include any logic for Guild or Officer chat currently, so the addon gives no errors and no output despite working properly aside from that.

  • #24

    The issues reported by Lockslap and Voidlyn should be fixed in v1.5, let me know if you find any other problems.

  • #25

    Wow real fast, Thank You

  • #23

    Mouse Overing  +Buff/-Buff  and +Debuff/-Debuff (Amount column) causes error any suggestion ?

    Not sure if you check tickets, but I opened one to let you know about a small change to Output.lua I made to let the addon account for the newly added Instance Chat (LFR/LFD/Battleground).

    I know it hasn't been updated for patch 5.1, but I thought I'll let you know anyway, that reporting someone AFK in a battleground triggers a taint error with this addon loaded.

    I am aware that there a few taint issues with the unit menu. I'll give it a look to see if there is anything I can do about it, but I am not sure if it is possible at all to add the deathnote option without tainting the entire menu. On the other hand, the only protected functions (that I am aware of) in the unit menu are the set focus and the one you are talking about now, and I am not really sure that they are so widely used to make it worth removing the entire feature from deathnote (I am assuming that most people use a binding to set their focus).

  • #21

    I googled the issue with UnitPopupButtons and taint... and you are correct. If you do anything with the unit menu you will get taint issues. The strange thing is I don't recall seeing this error before patch 5.1. Oh well, at least I know what is causing it now :)

    Maybe ReportPlayerIsPVPAFK wasn't a secure function before 5.1, that might explain it.

  • #20

    Anyway, if it is really bothering you, you can remove the line with "self:AddToUnitPopup()" from DeathNote.lua

  • #13

    Lately every time someone dies in our raid, it's causing it to momentarily pause for a half second or so. The issue goes away if I unload death note. Any ideas?

  • #14

    I know that this is not very helpful, but the fact of the matter is that DeathNote does almost no processing at all when someone dies (it records the time when it happened and that's pretty much it). For that reason, unless you have some concrete evidence that DeathNote is causing the problem, I am not going to do anything.
