About OmniCC

Doing pet battles? Check out my latest addon, PetTracker!


OmniCC is an addon that adds text to items, spell and abilities that are on cooldown to indicate when they will be ready to use. In other words: it turns all the standard analogue cooldowns into digital ones.

Anything should work with OmniCC, from the action bars to the inventory, from the standard interface to your favorite add-on.

    Gulp Frog Toxin

    So I'm having a small but annoying issue with OmniCC and how it handles the gulp frog toxin debuff on the timeless isle. For some reason half the time I can an accurate countdown and then the other half I just get a solid icon until it disapears with no countdown (the last 3-4 seconds of the debuff).

    Is this is configuration issue on my part or a possible bug?

  • #2312

    I cannot remove the Blizz Art (the grey interface frames) via the addon menu.  A little help please?

  • #2311

    This really could do with a update starting to get errors

  • #2310

    Love it. But I have to ask you a question. I have been looking everywhere. What addon makes the rarity color boarders around the equipment?

  • #2309

    Does anyone know if there's a way to disable to cooldown text timer appearing on the default UI shaman totems that appear under your nameplate? The default UI already has a time-remaining counter under these icons, and it looks silly with the OmniCC counter within the icon as well:

    First of all let me thank you for this addon. I really like it, because I can get exactly when a CD ends or when a buff/debuff will exactly expire.

    I want to report that CD for Earthgrab Totem from talents is not working. Doesn't show the CD or even the translucent time layer. Bug?

    Thanks in advice.

    Suggestion: Could it be because Blizzard didn't add a "Cooldown remaining" tag for tooltip and you can't calculate it's CD? IDK, was just a suggestion...

    The old (5.4.1) and the new (5.4.3) version Verion have with me somehow no config in the game is in addons Although OmniCC but when clicking on it, the window They can also unwind something very empty.

  • #2299

    It's nice to have an Italian translation. Problem: I'm using a German client. All OmniCC options and settings are Italian now. I don't understand that language. I've no clue how to chance it back to German or at least English.

  • #2300

    I too am having everything show up in Italian. I was using english before when I had previously set it up. Wiping all data and reinstalling did not fix the issue either.

  • #2298

    Im not sure if anyone else has reported this, but I just downloaded and start configuring with this addon after I had to reformat. Before, I was able to have text display on almost everything in the game with a cooldown. For some weird reason, it is not displaying a remaining time on everyone, sometimes when I click on people with buffs, it will display the timer for everything they have on. Other times it will only display a timer for 1 thing, I am using Shadowed Unit Frames if anyone knows what my issue might be.

    Memory Issue

    It seems that I can't get OmniCC to work properly as the game prompts me the following error. 

    "Your computer does not have enough memory to load settings from the following AddOn. Please disable some AddOns. OmniCC"

    Any advice on the matter?
