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.

    I cannot use WoW without your addon now.

    Is there any way to make the numbers on the countdown less than 5 pulse?

    So that it's a pulsed #5, pulsed #4, pulsed #3, pulsed #2, pulsed #1 (maybe larger on the #1) and then shinescale.

    I think this would be kind of cool because it allows for a bit more visual flare and also gets me prepared to tag the actionbar instead of shine and THEN look.

    Anyways, just a thought. You definitely hit the nail on the head though, regardless.

  • #115

    I have been looking for a working cooldown count addon for so long time thanks for making one

    /thank /bow

    Error upon entering game:

    Interface\Addons\!OmniCC\cooldown.lua:151:attempt to call global `hooksecurefunc' (a nil value)

  • #117

    'Interface\Addons\!OmniCC\cooldown.lua:151:attempt to call global `hooksecurefunc' (a nil value)' I've only tested the beta with The Burning Crusade. It should work on the test realm as well, but it will most definitely not work on the standard realms.

  • #17

    im playing a rogue, when i -combat and stealth immediately, there will be an error the error shows: &#25991;&#20214;:...\DiscordActionBars\DAB_ActionButton.lua &#34892;:792 &#21015;:12 &#37679;&#35492;:attempt to index a nil value (ps. im playeing TWOW)

    "theres an error with dab in 4226" It looks like if you move a button around that's got a cooldown, it stays. I tested this with and without OmniCC, same result. So, it looks like there's currently a bug in Discord. Was that the problem?

    Autobar Support: Per the official interface forums, the author mentioned that cooldown support was overlooked when rewriting it. So, in a version or so Autobar will have a cooldown again, and OmniCC should then work for it.

    "please consider adding the functionality completely within its own LUA and not within the main mod code. So that users can delete the LUA if they don't have that bar installed and the memory used/performance of this is not affected. Not talking about just turning off the functionality within the UI, of course. I'm talking about deleting the extra support LUA(s) so that we can keep the memory use down and the performance up." That's the plan, but I'm hoping it won't be necessary at all :)

    Finally: I'd really love a list of mods that aren't working properly with OmniCC.

  • #15

    j85ason@: if you do intend to add special support for bars that don't play nicely with other mods--like Autobar--please consider adding the functionality completely within its own LUA and not within the main mod code. So that users can delete the LUA if they don't have that bar installed and the memory used/performance of this is not affected. Not talking about just turning off the functionality within the UI, of course. I'm talking about deleting the extra support LUA(s) so that we can keep the memory use down and the performance up.

    The problem with supporting different bars of all sorts is the same reason CooldownCount is so incredibly bloated: all sorts of extra functionality has to be added. Seeing as that Omni Cooldown Count already works with the vast majority of the most popular bar mods, adding extra support for others like Autobar I don't think is needed with Omni.

    But if you do decide to add support for uncommon, odd bars like that, please allow us the ability to delete the LUA supporting the extra bar(s) so that we can keep this mod slim & trim as originally designed. Keep up the good work.

    theres an error with dab in 4226 plz chech it out

  • #73

    Was updating my bunch of addons and stumbled upon yours. Since CooldownCount wasn't updated anymore I decided to take a new one - yours :) I like it so far but I would love to have add something: the timer should flash/blink since the cooldown reached x (maybe configurable by player) seconds. Would really help catch the eye. (like it was suggested a few posts below)

    Maybe (if this isn't too much work) you could also add a configuration menu. Don't like these command lines ;D

    Keep up the good work!

    Ok one not so obvious thing. Its possible to copy colors. Simply drag one color box to another to do so :)

    Bacon is a cheese.

  • #329

    I've put up a new beta. Here are the changes:
    * Full: Completely rewritten to be more compatible. Settings have been reset
    * Full: The blacklist option has been replaced with minimum scale option. This option controls how big a frame must be for cooldown text to be displayed.
    * Full: Replaced slash commands with an options window, accessible via /omnicc or /occ
    * Full: Implemented Shared Media support

    OmniCC should be compatible with nearly everything now. Compatibility with CT mod is currently not possible, since it does not call the function CooldownFrame_SetTimer. The map bug has been fixed, too.

    '''Known Issues'''
    * The font drop down does not handle a large font selection well. You can use the command OmniCC:SetFont("Font") if you're having problems for now. Ex, /run OmniCC:SetFont("Skurri")

    Bacon is a cheese.

  • #331

    I love your mod but just one problem I'm noticing. Whenever I hit "m" and go to the world map the cooldowns on my bars disappear temporarily and seem to randomly reappear all at once a bit later (maybe after I use an ability that would cause another cooldown count to start?).

    I have the newest version, 1.3.0

  • #333

    Do you have a screenshot of your setup?

    Bacon is a cheese.

  • #332

    Had to move back down to version 1.3.0 as I was not seeing cooldown timers on many abilities (Volley, Arcane Shot, Aim Shot, etc.)

  • #335

    The cooldowns you see are from CT mod, not OmniCC. I cannot hook the addon, so I cannot get OmniCC to work with it.

    Bacon is a cheese.
