About Gyro: Get Your Raid On!

Gyro lets you set up macros (lists of commands) to be run whenever you join or leave a raid, for convenience or laziness.  You can, for example, enable raid UI mods only when you're actually in a raid, disabling them when you're done.

It's easy to set up: put commands you want to be run whenever you join a raid in the GyroStartRaid macro, and the commands you want to be run whenever you leave a raid in the GyroEndRaid macro.  (Gyro creates these macros for you automatically.)

For example, if you want Hear Kitty to only operate when you're in a raid (not sure why, but whatever...), you could use these macros:

/hearkitty on

/hearkitty off

More details are in the readme file that comes with Gyro.

Version 1.2.1f

    well I have another addon that sorts out the repairs ( , and it can be turned on/off with a macro, which is why I want to use your addon. I just dont want them going on/off on any raid i.e. LFR, only normal ones. Same thing for various other addons I use i.e. spam of fail etc, no use in LFR but needed in normals/HCs

    (sorry, sholud of been a reply, rather than a new response)

    Ah, cool.  Then I think something like this will work:

    /script if GetRaidDifficultyID() >= 3 then VgerCore.ExecuteChatCommand("/repairtoggle enable") end

    /repairtoggle enable

    excellent, thank you

  • #13

    Yep, got it on my to-do list.  Thanks!

    Thanks, that would help for sure but it would also eat up a lot of the macro character allowance if I had to do that for 2-3 addons.

    If your addon had an option like the BG one it could :
    - set it to include BGs, or not
    - set it to include LFR, or not
    - run in raid group

    Possibly I can edit the lua code to do this but thought I would make the suggestion as Im sure theres other people that have addons that spam raid chat about fails in things that are great for normal raids but dont really apply in LFR (since most people fail there anyway) . 
    Thats basically all Im after, a LFR option like the BG option

    bonus would be to check if in a instance as well as a raid, so it doesnt run on world bosses

    Nice addon, I like its potential.

    Is it possible to make it detect raid versions i.e. I have stuff I want to run in my normal raids but not in LFR, stuff like guild repairs on etc.

    Hi!  It looks like it's possible to do so, but I don't have a guild that I can test on and I've never used any of WoW's scripting capabilities for changing guilds before.  You'd need to figure out how to get the script working yourself.  Start with this in your GyroStartRaid macro:

    /script if GetRaidDifficultyID() >= 3 then GuildControlSetRank(123) SetGuildBankWithdrawGoldLimit(100)  GuildControlSaveRank("Name of rank") end

    And then this in your GyroEndRaid macro:

    /script GuildControlSetRank(123) SetGuildBankWithdrawGoldLimit(0)  GuildControlSaveRank("Name of rank")

    • The 123 needs to be the numerical rank that you want to change guild repairs on.  If "Raiders" is rank 3, put a 3 there.
    • The "Name of rank" should be the name of that rank, so "Raiders" in this example.
    • The 100 is the number of gold that the rank can withdraw.
    • The GetRaidDifficultyID() >= 3 at the beginning means for anything normal or heroic.

    If you have any questions about that I'll try my best, but it'll require a little bit of trial and error.  To test stuff out, either use scripts like the GyroEndRaid one that don't start with "if," or you'll actually need to be in a raid for things to work.

    Also, if you find out that it works or make any changes, let me know so I can suggest the same to people in the future.  :)

    Version 1.2.1 is out, with important fixes for World of Warcraft 5.0.  This version of Gyro will not work on old versions of World of Warcraft.

  • #5

    I've uploaded a beta version of Gyro for Mists of Pandaria and the 5.0 PTRs.

  • #4
    I've updated Gyro for Cataclysm and the 4.0 PTRs.
  • #3
    I've updated Gyro for patch 3.0.
  • #2

    Omen doesn't have a slash command that explicitly turns the display on or off, making it hard to use it with Gyro. However, I found a workaround that might be helpful:

    /script Omen:Toggle(true)

    /script Omen:Toggle(false)

  • #1

    On the Burning Crusade beta (2.0.3), the icons used for the Gyro macros are wrong when first created. This is just an aesthetic issue and should affect only the beta server, so I'm not going to release a TBC-specific version unless some other bug warrants it.
