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.

5.2.1
Bugfix: Fixed timers for alerts with more than 30 seconds remaining.
Bugfix: Attempting to fix an ongoing issues with AltItem alerts.

    HI, I realise its propably stupid question but I cant move evnt icons even when I clicked off lock in options. if anyone could help I would be greatfull.

  • #1405

    You have to display the test frames, which will allow you to move the alert frames to a different position. You can either do it from the options menu or type "/ea showtest" in game.

  • #1397

    No matter how many times I reinstall this addon, all sudden now it no longer shows up in game since the last update

  • #1398

    Strange, this is the first time I hear about that issue.

    Could you clarify? Do you mean it does not show up in the Addon selection menu from the character screen? Or perhaps that the alerts simply do not display at all?

    If it's the former, which version are you installing?

    If it's the latter, what class do you play? Does it work on some classes but not others for you? Did you try deleting the saved variables?

  • #1402

    yeah there an option you can have, and I set mine to release but I still get these alpha and beta ones

  • #1400

    Strange that it doesn't show in the Interface menu.

    I'd reccomend reverting to 5.1.9, the alpha was a test release I pushed, I didn't think the Curse client would download alphas automatically. The problem is most likely that I forgot something in the code for the alpha and it doesn't compile :S

  • #1399
    It shows up at the character screen with all other addons, but in game doesn't show under interface to change options like before, and when I am in combat on my warlock no longer shows, I have it set at the bottom right above my cast bar so I always can see backdraft, Havok, and when I max embers. 

    I am running Version: 5.1.10apha version curse downloaded for me - it auto updates all addons for me. 

     

    Also doesn't show on any class I am playing, use to show me revenge for prot but like with lock is all sudden no longer shows in game.

    Shadowburn now working great.  Thanks!

  • #1396

    Glad to hear it!

  • #1390

    Yo! 

    I love this addon and recently I picked up my ele shaman, I can't get Lightning Shield stacks to show for some reason, I've tried clearing out the addon completley and redownloading but nothing works, anyone knows how to fix this problem? 

  • #1391

    By default, the stack count required to trigger an alert for Lightning Shield is 6 stacks. If you'd like it to appear earlier, you can go into the Event Alert options, and lower the number next to "Lightning Shield" to "1" (or the number of stacks you want it to display an alert at!)

    If that doesn't work, let me know! There may be something else I need to take a look at.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Editing here because it's starting to be a bit messy down there with replys! :P

    I'm pushing a beta update that may fix the issue, I was limited to a trial account for testing so I couldn't do much besides make sure the addon wasn't crashing or not displaying buffs.

    I think it will work, however since I found out that Stacking items were not being handled properly due to a mistake in the code.

    Let me know if it fixes it, if not I'll get back to the drawing board when I have some time!

    I tried it now and the 4th number matches the number of stacks and the 11th number is indeed 324.

    I managed to get it to show by using 1 stack as default number to show display but then it's up all the time, which I don't like too much.

    Whenever I set it to a higher value, for example 4, 6 and 7 (I'd mostly want it to show when I get 7 stacks) it won't create an alert.

    Hopefully you'll manage to find out why this is happening! 
    ________________________________________________________________

    Ya I'll edit here as well then to make it less messy!

    I just tried the beta out, first without a clean reinstall, no difference regarding the lightning shield stacks, after that I did a clean reinstall with no success.

    It's just weird as it's the only ability I've ever encountered a problem with, all the other alerts on all my other classes works just great.

    I see! Could you do me a favor then? xD I don't have access to WoW at the moment, but could you build up a few charges of Lightning Shield in game and then type in chat:

    "/dump UnitAura("player", "Lightning Shield")"

    The fourth value returned should be the buff count and it should appear like "[4] = <Number of Stacks Here>".

    The eleventh value returned should be the spellID for the spell, so it should appear like "[11] = 324"

    Could you let me know whether the fourth argument matches the number of stacks the buff has and if the buff was supposed to be displayed by Event Alert at that number of stack with your current settings?

    Same deal with the spellID, it should be 324 and if not I'll just have to change the spell tracked in the shaman alert file. xD

    I know it's a bit of a hassle so if you can't it's no biggie, I'll try to get on when I can and test it! xD

    Thanks for the report!

  • #1392

    Thanks for the quick answer, I might've been a bit unclear, I can't get the alert to show up at all, I've tried playing around with the numbers however it just won't show up, every other alert on all the other classes seem to be fine for me, so it's just lightning shield I'm having a problem with.

    Anyways you're doing a great job with the addon, keep it up. 

  • #1389

    Hey there everyone, finally got some free time to do some work.

    I upgraded the 5.1.7 version to release, though the actual file will still read "Beta". If there are any issues with it, revert to 5.1.6 and let me know in the comments section!

    I also pushed a 5.1.8 "alpha" version, which means I haven't gotten to test it yet. It was a small change though, so it should work just fine and fix a lot of issues.

    I'll get to work on fixing the ability procs as soon as I can test my current solution in game.

    ----------------------------

    Got some time to test everything. The new way to handle ability procs that did not display before, like Shadowburn (17877), seems to be working perfectly!

    If there are any issues with 5.1.8, let me know here. This includes UI settings being reset, I really want to corner the problem this time if it still happens!

    5.1.8 should be up sometime later today!

    P.S.: Happy April's Fool!
