About HaloPro

== HaloPro monitors all three level 90 talents - Always land max Cascades, always be in range for dbl hitting Divine Stars, and ofc be Pro at Halo ==

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

== HALOPRO OVERVIEW ==

  • Re-Written for Warlords of Draenor *

The level 90 talent Halo, offers all priests a very unique, fun ability, but one that is sometimes difficult during an encounter to reliably maximize to its full potential. Halo does the most healing and damage when cast at 25 yards to the target. This can often be a tough thing to judge.

HaloPro creates a customizable bar that can be sized and positioned anywhere in your UI. As you move closer or farther away from a tracked unit the bar's texture changes to let you know whether you need to move in or away to get in proper range (25 yards). This ensures you can accurately cast and time your use of Halo.

HaloPro now also has a built in WeakAuras mode in case you prefer weak aura style of monitoring over the custom textures.

HaloPro also goes further and monitors the other lvl 90 talents as well, to ensure you are maxing your healing or damage from Cascade, and know you are never out of range for Divine Star to hit twice.

=== Slash Commands ===

/hp or /halopro

  • 'default' - unlocks and resets bar position and size
  • 'lock' - locks down to the bar so it can't be moved or resized
  • 'unlock' - unlocks the bar so it can be moved or resized

    It's still moving for me, everytime I login or zone it moves from "-2" to "-5" this is driving me crazy

  • #212

    Please give v2.1.1 a try as it should fix reposition resize errors.

  • #204

    I've been hitting the reposition bug this afternoon. I can't recreate it easily though. I've been going into options to try to figure out how to hide the bar when I'm not in combat (which I haven't figured out... am I missing the obvious?), along with hiding and showing ovale. Then when I move, everyone once in awhile HP resets to middle of the screen. I try to do the same steps again and it won't happen. OOOH, while tabbed out to write this, it reset -- while I wasn't doing anything. Not in a group, up in the air on a mount so not attacked, not auto-targetting, nothing but floating. I don't envy trying to track this bugger down!

    One thing that is odd is when I exit the options screen, I get an out of place message: "Shadow Priest DoT Timer Options Saved..." I haven't touched that addon (in awhile) but I also didn't change anything within HP. I don't get that message when doing /hp unlock and /hp lock.

    If I can figure out a way to recreate it consistently, I'll post it. In the meantime, how do I hide it while out of combat but show it all the time while in combat?

  • #205

    To have it hide while out of combat do /hp options, then uncheck the lock to unlock it.  Third check box down on the left should be checked.  If unchecked it says:

    Will show both IN and OUT of combat - Check to show only when IN combat

    Check it so it says

    WILL show ONLY when IN combat

    Then look for a button in the middle of the settings screen that says

    Fade In: Enabled

    Click that so it says

    Fade In: Disabled

    Now it will only show when in combat and not disappear when you cast the spell.

     Also try changing the strata level of HaloPro in the settings to resolve the reposition issue.  Make sure you are running v2.1.0.  

    Cheers!

    I knew it was something simple. I didn't realize the "HaloPro is locked" check box unhid all those options. I had the bar positioned where I wanted it from doing /hp unlock and lock, so I never unchecked it in the GUI, so I didn't know those options were there. Thanks for clearing it up!

    quick question:

     

    Why is this addon so large? at 4.2M it's the largest, by far. And it doesn't really do too much...

    Custom hi-res textures that scale to basically any size.  Most addons use in game low rez texture files already in the game, so you don't have to download because they are already there.

    I'll probably start issuing a separate update that doesn't include the texture files to keep the download very small.

    Also, people shouldn't confuse the size of the texture files with how much memory or cpu usage HaloPro consumes.  It's actually very lightweight for an addon constantly scanning.  250-300kb while operating in a raid, and uses very little cpu.

    I will say, I always do chuckle when people seem to be upset by something under 5 megs that has to be downloaded once a month or so.  It's less than 2 mp3's.  But, like I say, I'll put out updates in the future with the option to not download the textures to keep the file very small.

    Sorry, I still have the issue.

    The size of the bar is saved, but not the position... sometime.

    I've Halo on my secondary spec (shadow), and escalade on my first spec (Disc).

    I've take time to set Halo position, then logout. login : ok.
    Changed spec, move Escalade position, then logout. login : ok

    I've set readonly on the lua files, but the file is deleted/recreated... I take time to recreate a proper lua, then replace the lua.bak with the good one... but the problem persist.

    After some time, I find... that hp location changed when I take a portal, or when I use the hearstone.

    Hope this will help you.

     Ya it's taint from the drop down menus.  Lots of addons cause this (anything with a drop down menu).  You can safely not worry about it and just /reload when in your bg.  It's a Blizzard bug that's well documented.

    Got the same problem as many others, no matter the spec or the talents I choose, HaloPro never stays fixed right where I need it, I *always* have to replace it.  What changed between 5.1 and 5.2 to make it so screwy?  Would there be a way to add an option "Fixed location for all specs/talents"??  That way it would save me (us) so much trouble... :-)

    I'll take another look at it.  I actually only changed a few things for version 2.0.8 to address this issue, which for the people I was talking to it did fix it.  I can not duplicate the problem myself.  As others have found out, it usually ends up being a conflict with other outdated addons.  As I can't (or won't) install every addon out there to test it with, I'm in a rough situation to try and troubleshoot something I have never personally seen happen.

    Right now every screen reload or logout it saves the position and writes the position, size, and strata to the saved variables.  Once the addon reloads (after any blue bar screen), it grabs the values from the saved variables and re-applies them.

    So not really sure how it can move.  My thought is other addons are trying to occupy the same space at the same strata level. 

    I am going to hardcode a Z-index and not let it default and see if this still happens.  In the meantime, try changing the strata level and see if that corrects it because two frames in the same place at the same strata level will cause issues.

    You can also install previous versions if one was working better for you until I can guess at what is causing this.

    Uninstalling, deleting saved variables and cache, and reinstalling may also fix it as old cached values could potentially be grabbed (they really shouldn't but at this stage I don't know what else to try).

    Sorry for those having trouble.

    4.3mb download, you've seriously got to be kidding me? What in the world could the justification for this addon needing 4.3mb be?
