About LoseControl

LoseControl makes it easy to see the duration of crowd control spells by displaying them in a dedicated icon onscreen.

Features:

  • Displays duration of all CC spells and abilities on your player, pet, target, focus, party, and arena enemy frames.
  • Automatically displays the most important buffs/debuffs first.
  • Integrates directly with Blizzard unit frames.
  • Icons can be moved, resized, and made transparent.
  • Compatible with OmniCC.

New in 5.41:

  • Added Turn Evil (Evil is a Point of View) [Paladin]

New in 5.4:

  • Fixed Entrapment [Hunter]
  • Added Bloodbath [Warrior]
  • Changed Warbringer to root instead of CC [Warrior]

Known issues:

  • Unlocking frames does not show arena enemy frames if they are anchored to Blizzard frames (because they don't exist unless you're in an arena).

To Do:

  • Options profiles.
  • Button skinning.
  • Improve OmniCC support to work with all strata levels.
  • Blizzard raid frame support.
  • Pitbull support.
  • SUF support.
  • Italian support.

Here are some demonstration videos:

    Yeah the first file on here I just changed the spells and just posted the whole LUA file on here. The updated spells from that on Post #308 has more spells then I had before. Those 3 spells were not the only ones I were missing but my latest ifle has those included. Also thanks for that addon creepy didn't know about that addon.

    disorienting roar not working in your fix. but i checked and the spell ID seems to be right

  • #311

    Just one more player amongst the thousands coming here to voice out: I hope this addon gets updated.

    You've done great work so far, keep it going :)

  • #308

    I just copied and pasted JUST the spells from the LUA file so you guys can check and see if there is any other spells missing from it. Especially if there is some monk spells I missed and/or any others I missed from other classes.

    http://uploading.com/files/get/1c65e496/LC+Added+Spells.rtf

    If you see any spells IDs like this  --[----]  that just means that I havent found the correct SPell ID for that ability.

    Something is messing with the text in this addon (with my UI) but it should be the first "Clash" you see in the list.

    Else download it from here: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info14897-SpellList.html

    You're able to browse all the spells in the game.

    Hey Billy, thanks for the help. I'm going through your file and checking spellIds now. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up about some changes I've been making to the addon. In the next version, LoseControl will no longer rely on spell names for determining buffs/debuffs. It will only look at spellId. This will give much finer control over what spells are actually CCs and what are not. For example (and this might be outdated info since I haven't played in about a year), Unstable Affliction has multiple debuffs with the same name, but only one is a CC. This change should fix those issues. So keep in mind when you are adding or changing spellIds in the code that it needs to be the exact ID of the buff/debuff that is applied to the character, and not the spell that causes it, if that makes sense. This change does have a downside in that PvE spells that have the same name but different spellIds, such as generic stun effects, won't be detected. However support may be added in the future.

    Also, I am adding CC priorities. Right now LoseControl just shows the debuff with the longest duration. In the next version, if you wanted CCs to always appear over snares, no matter what, you could do that. I haven't coded any of the options menus though, so these changes might initially have to be done via the .lua file in your SavedVariables folder.

    Lastly, I am going to totally re-do the options menu and tear out all the drop downs and try to figure out a better way to present everything. I may have to initially remove support for non-Blizzard frames. I apologize ahead of time in case that breaks.

    Hey, I'm not abandoning LoseControl, I've just been busy with work. I'll try to get an update out this weekend, although it will be untested. Thanks for the support.
