About OmniCC

Need help? Check the Guide!


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.

    I'm having the same problem as Exor18

    I have version 5.1.1 and the numbers are not showing


  • #2175

    Where is it not showing? Action bars? Buffs? Are you using any action bar mod? If so, which?
    Also, do you have "Show Lua Errors" enabled at the Interface Options?

    I am using Bartender4 and this addon was updated and OmniCC is still not working. There is no error from OmniCC... just nothing at all.

    EDIT: Uninstalling OmniCC plus in-game settings and then reinstall. It works now.

    Hello, I have updated the latest version of this addon. It doesn't show seconds at all. Just like this addon is not installed at all but it is according to curse client list as well as in-game addon list.

  • #2169

    Anyone else using the 5.1.0 version on en-US find that the options window is in French?

  • #2167

    So? It works in MoP well ?

  • #2168

    Yeah man, works great. I don't think this is one that had a problem during the transition even.

  • #2170

    Why would it not work? Cool

    5.0.8 introduced a new issue for me that i didnt have with previous versions.  The slider for minimum time to show millsecons in the options screen seems a little bugged.  Sliding the control doesnt change the text that shows the current setting, but it does change the setting.  Closing and reopening the omnicc options frame updates this text.

  • #2160

    how do we get searing totem to show up with the omnicc?

  • #2157

    I see 5.0.7 is out with the changelog stating the it now works with addons that don't support spell charges (ex: Ion).  I'm not sure exactly what spell charges are, what addon support them, or what Ion is.  I don't know if this fix affects my problems with Satrina Buff Frames or if i should continue using the release version for now.

    Also based on the changelog note, "Fixed settings migration issue",  I'm unsure wether is my problems with the new omniCC betas are a settings migration problem or if the addon is just not working with SBF yet.
