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:

    I understand the desire for more fine-grained control and "power user" options, but those come at the cost of greater code complexity. I don't think it's worth multiplying the number of configuration options by 13 (player, target, focus, 4 party, 5 arena, and soon pet frames) for something that maybe only a small percentage of people will use.

  • #242

    It's working for me atm, I think it stoped working one bg but I maybe had wrong settings. Got a suggestion for you if you're gonna do a major update to this addon, it would be great if you could choose different types of tracking for every unit configuration. For example I would like to have CC, Silence, Disarm, Root on myself and only CC and silence on Arena Target 1-3.

    Btw, it's a masterpiece addon you've created

    Commentary video I made of setting up LoseControl for arena.

    This is awesome, thanks for making it. Mind if I embed the video in the addon description?
  • #238
    Not at all :D thanks for making a great addon!
  • #235
    Is is possible to do it on the raidframes? Would be perfect for dispelling in RBGs.
    Or if there is any other good addon for that please tell me.
  • #234
    I can't get it to show the duration, i have cooldown count working fine but it wont show the duration in seconds on the cc icons? plz help
  • #233
    LoseControl doesn't work correctly with Pitbull4, the frame's cc appear under the unit frame ( I placed it over the portrait). Is ther any way to do it work ? sorry for my english.
  • #239

    Same problem here. I just can't put the LoseControl icons over the Pitbull-Frames. Would be glad if that will be fixed soon - I really NEED this Addon!

  • #227
    hey, i've found a problem. this addon works properly on all my characters except my druid. on my druid my Target losecontrol icon won't appear, i have it enabled even when i scale to max it doesn't appear everything else works though.
  • #230
    Try setting the target anchor frame to "Blizzard", then lock and unlock the frames, it should appear where your standard target frame normally appears and you can move it from there if necessary.
  • #232
    will do, and yes the target frame is enabled i checked that twice before coming here ^^
  • #231
    Also make sure the target frame is enabled. :P
    /lc enable target
  • #225
    Have a quick question. Is there anyway to remove the smoke bomb icon? I personally can tell that I am in a smoke bomb so I don't need that to show me, however, I am not able to see what stun or movement impairing effect is on me during the smoke bomb because that icon seems to overwrite all abilities that make me "lose control" of my character. Please let me know. Thanks!
  • #228
    you should try elkano's buff bars. u can create a bar just for debuffs
