About Timers

This mod lets you create a list of specific timers to track on yourself, a target, your pet or your focus.

Three main difference between this mod and other timer mods.

  • The bars you make always exist and show up as red if the buff/debuff is missing. This makes it easy to determine if you need to reapply a buff or dot.
  • Buffs, cooldowns and debuffs can be intermingled. This means as a hunter you can track your Explosive Shot cooldown right above the Serpent Sting dot on a target. Or a Death Knight can have Unholy Blight right next to Frost Fever.
  • The bars all use absolute time scales. You can set the scaling factor in the configuration window, but the actual time is always absolute. This means whichever bar is closest to empty will expire first which allows you to look ahead and make a smart decision on which ability to use next based on the order that buffs and debuffs will expire.

v4.08
  Fixed bad version that snuck in.

v4.07
  Bump for 4.3

v4.06
  Initial bump for 4.2

v4.05
  Now tracks auras

v4.04
  Bumped versoin numbers for 4.1

v4.02
  Fixed tracking by spell ID

v4.01
  Quick fix for item id tracking

v4.00
  Jump to 4.0 for WoW 4.0 compatibility.

v2.11
  Workaround for 3.3.3 change causing texture tiling

v2.10
  For buffs and debuffs you can now enter a spell ID instead of a spell name.  This was to solve problems where multiple buffs shared names (solace and shaman frost badge totem specifically)

v2.09
  Changed frame lock code to make it cleaner
  Added a "Full Lock" option which prevents alt-drag.  This causes clicks to be ignored so you can click items behind the timers or drag/spin the camera even if the mouse is over the timer bar.

v2.08
  Added internal cooldown tracking through libInternalCooldowns

v2.07
  Fixed an error with shared media not having an appropriate widget available.

v2.06
  Added support to toggle based on stance/form

v2.05
  Added shared media support  

v2.04
  Added aliases.  Click 'advanced features' to enable this
    On the 'aliases' tab you can enter a new alias. There are some defaults entered
    Enter the abilities or cooldowns for that alias
    On the main Frame tabs, instead of giving an ability or buff/debuff name, use the alias name instead
  Some additional GCD detection correction around abilities that reset cooldowns.
  Updated TOC for 3.3

v2.03
  Changed default spacing to compress more
  Cleaned up TOC entries. Was missing some.

v2.02
  Handled the GCD better.  Cooldowns should count down all the way to zero now instead of occasionally reseting at 1.5 seconds.

v2.01
  Added a new type, 'slot', to track cooldowns for equipped items
  Revamped weapon enchants to use a dropdown box instead of a text field
  Tweaked the weapon enchant detection code.  

v2.00
  Rewrite of the timer code management. No longer using an external library.
  Initial testing shows more accurate timings and less artificats (0.01 bars, or infite bars)
  Some glitches with cooldowns on inventory items if you don't have the item when you load were fixed.  This also applies to pet cooldowns if your pet isn't summoned.
  Added a bit more delay to weapon enhancement checking.  Should make this more accurate, but might need to get even more complex.
  All ACE-2.0 dependances removed and updated to ACE-3.0
  SVN repository being used - ACE libraries should be current now.
  This is also the first step towards configuring colors and textures.
  There may be some issues with garbage collection/cleanup.  If you notice memory leaks or high cpu usage please report it.

    Re: Timers Sacreed Shield

    Hey is your timer capable of keeping track of Sacred Shield? It tends to add 4 shileds in 5 second intervals plus its original 30 second shield. It would be nice to see the 5 sec ones plus keep the 30 second one so I know when its time to refresh the 30 second one or at the least it wont recognise the 5 second ones and just keep up the 30 second one. Is it capable of this? Please, if you could explain?

  • #120

    It looks like there are two buffs named Sacred Shield so the mod gets confused.

    If you enter the ID (20925) instead of typing Sacred Shield, I believe it will work how you want.

    You can create a separate bar for the short-lived one if you want.  I believe its ID is 65148.

    Edit: Had the wrong ID

    Great addon. Good work. Can you make it so you can have the bars change colors at pre designated times? For instance: it starts as one choice of color at 10seconds then when it counts down to 3 seconds left the bar changes to a different choice of color.

  • #116

    Is there a way to disable the title text on the bar groups when locked?

  • #117

    There's no option for it but you can set the text name to be blank and then it won't show for the title.

    If you mean for the indivdual bars there's currently no way to do that.  If its something people want it shouldn't be too hard to add it.

  • #114

    How do I move the bars??

  • #115

    By default you can click on the title bar. It'll be greyed out to indicate it.

    Otherwise alt-clicking on the title bar will move it.

    You can lock or unlock them from the control panel (/timers)

    I'll be getting one up sometime this week.  Been busy so didn't have time to play on beta.

    Fixed version for MOP uploading now.

    Haven't tested with stances yet, but spec changing works now.

    Hi,

    Nice simple addon that does the job well.

    A do have few suggestions though.

    1. The ability to set a lower threshold in seconds, where if below that, the bar will turn yellow (or custom color picker if possible), e.g if I set the current Seconds option to 10, the bar starts to shrink at 10 secs left, then if I set the proposed new setting to 6 the bar would then turn yellow at 6 seconds and continue shrinking.

    2. The ability to hide the text on the bar and only show the icon

    3. The ability to control how the seconds left display is shown, e.g. I prefer a simple second count down without decimals.

  • #107

    These are all good suggestions which I'd like to add in at some point, I just don't have time to do so currently.

    Also would you prefer to see these set as per-bar or per-group settings?  The UI is already a bit cluttered for configuration so I'm a bit hesitant to add more per-bar options.

  • #113

    Rather than starting my own comment i figured i'd add to the comment that states the reason i came here.....

    I would love to be able to set the seconds option as low as 0.1 if possible..

    I just want to have something on screen and red when renewing mist is on cooldown and turn green when it's ready to be cast again. 

    or at least have the option of having the "bar" basically be solid red or green based on if the spell's not available to cast, or is available to cast.  with a very low "seconds option" we could accomplish that, or we could set that to the spell's actual cooldown and have a sliding bar that actually works for those less than 10sec CD abilities that are rather important (like renewing mist for a mist monk in aoe damage situations.. want to cast that everytime it cools down). 

     

    and while a agree with the original poster of the comment i'm replying to.. i would prefer to have the tenths of a second visible, so possibly make that an option of whether to show 10th's or not?

    yellow at a certain time (and possibly even the option to show or not to show tenths of a second)... sounds like it could take a good bit of coding (i have played with lua a bit, just not enough to write an addon lol).

    excellent simple lightweight addon that does exactly what i need it to though.  (even better if we can get a shorter seconds option minimum)

    love your addon, thanks for updating :)

     

    (btw, previous version was Timers-v4.06.zip if I remember correctly - why is it now Timers-v1.07.zip?)
