About EventAlert

The addon will notify you in the middle of your screen with an icon, name of the spell that has procced, the time left on the proc and will make a subtle sound. EventAlert is also able to handle more than one proc at a time (this option was not available in previous versions).

I am not fond of addons that have very complicated installation and setups. The mod should work on install without any config, but if you wish to change any options use the following command: /ea options
To see a more detailed list of what options are avaiable to the mod, just check out the screenshot of the options pane.

Quick Backstory: I created this addon as a test for myself as my first "from the ground up" addon. Most of my coding in WoW LUA was taking other addons and just fixing them so they work from minor bugs or whatnot.

Anyhow, I needed a mod that was lightweight and did only what I wanted it to do, and that was warn me when one of my spells or talents procced something I needed. Thus, EventAlert was born. There are likely to be bugs, explosions and not so good things that may come from this mod. I'm sorry in advance! If you find a bug, please let me know so I can fix it.

Also, if anyone finds a spell/talent/etc that they want watched, please let me know and I will add it!

Greetings everyone, my name is Menio and I will be taking over the maintenance of this addon from CurtisTheGreat, the original author!

I'll start with an important note: If you used EventAlert before in your current WoW folder, you will need to delete the EventAlert.lua and EventAlert.lua.bak files located at:
\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SavedVariables for this addon to work.

Above is CurtisTheGreat's original description, with updated class abilities.

Bugfix: Fixed timers for alerts with more than 30 seconds remaining.
Bugfix: Attempting to fix an ongoing issues with AltItem alerts.

    Thanks for the report, I was able to reproduce both of them!

    The delete bug seems to be a small typo, should be fixed in no time. I'll look into the spacing between test icons and actual alerts too!

    Just an update here... I left WoW a very long time ago.  I recently got an e-mail from user "Menio" who said he'd like to take up the addon.  I've given him access, so he should be able to get updates going again.  Hopefully you all will continue to use the addon and I'm glad it's helped more than a few people.  :)

  • #1238

    Nice! Thanks to you for a fantastic addon and thanks for letting another programmer continue the project. Again, cheers for a nice job done  : )

  • #1237

    Thanks for everything you've done and also a big thanks to Menio who decided to pick up this great addon!

  • #1233

    my friend messed around with the lua to this and has it working so far, maybe update inc soon

  • #1232

    jan 30 ,2011 was last time the author logged on project site , so id say this addon is no longer being maintained

  • #1235

    IIRC he updated it after someone else took it over and did it themselves, that person then removed thiers and he hasn't updated it since. Made me think the only reason it was updated was because someone else did something with it.
