About Eth's Buff Bars

The addon is currently being rewritten from scratch, both to improve performances and allow more features to get in. The end goal is to provide an addon that can display your buffs in any way you want with complete freedom on customization to decide where each buff should appear (even in multiple places or not at all) and how the buff should look (form, size, colors)
It's quite a long process, the buff display part is more or less complete at the moment and I "just" have the UI left to create (which is probably the longest part to get it done right)

Buff Bars in action

A few videos of kills made by players using the buff bars, if you made a nice one, feel free to send me a link to add it here

Quick How-To

  • Left-click and drag'n'drop the addon's icon at the desired location
  • Right-click it to open settings (or type /ebb in chat)
  • Configure what buffs (or debuffs) you want to track on yourself and your offensive/defensive target
  • While settings window is open, drag the dummy bars around to set where real buffs should be displayed (and use mouse wheel to change the size of the buff bars)
  • Profit!

Advanced Users

You can change the color of buff bars by adding an hexadecimal color code after the buff name. Example: if you want Breaching Shot's buff bar to appear in pink, instead of entering "Breaching Shot" in the buff list, enter "Breaching Shot#E81067" instead.

Let me know about any bug with 1.2 version

    Is there a bug with Boss tracked buffs and reticle mode? I play as a tank in reticle mode and in HR/6 if i loose the Boss as target and retarget, the tacked "Anima depletion" buff resets back to 24s, while in reality its at 1-10s? This means i cant rely on the tracked display.

    Wierd bug: my self bar has shrunk to a miniature, unreadable state...

    edit: ah, ctrl+scrolling fixed it. Might be caused by CustomUI.

    Has any one put together a list of offensive buff targets for NM dungons?

    ie: Anima Depletion, extra..

    I just couldnt seem to get this working properly the other night and it turns out I was just adding buffs in the wrong type. Some friends in game told me to use all caps or the buffs wouldnt display. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling a couple times and various other things that were listed in here but finally typed it as it's listed on the actual ability and it's working great. So, dont use all caps :)

    One thing that might help people having issues to get it to work.

    Once ingame after installing, type this command

    /setoption EthBuffBarsMod true

    And if you still don't see the addon active, type /reloadui

    I can't get this to work. I used to have this installed then I tried updating it. I've deleted all the files, started from scratch. Tried curse, and manual and I still can't get it to install. I've deleted everything, scripts and all then tried to install it but it still doesn't work...

    I noticed modules.xml, login pref, character file inside the flash folder do I delete these?

    *UPDATE* that was the problem. I deleted these extra .xml files and it loads! Thank you!!

    Beginning last night my personal buff bars started randomly deciding to not disappear once the buff was gone. After one boss fight I might have 3 Breaching Shot bars still on my screen, 2 or 3 Seal the Deal bars, some Do or Die bars, etc.

    A /reloadui fixed the issue until the next fight.  I havne't installed or updated any addons in the last week or so.

    I'm having this same issue. Several buffs aren't disappearing once they expire. For example, if I enter battle with sprint still on, the bar for it won't dissapear. Then, when I re-activate it after the battle, I'll have two, and so on.

    While I'm here I want to thank you developing and coninuing to support this awesome mod. The bars definately make play much easier compared to the default. Keep up the good work!

    The issue seems to be that if a buff is active when combat starts or ends the buff bar will get stuck on the screen.

    I can't seem to get it to work at all.  Loaded it through Curse client and it doesn't work.  Copied the files over manually and doen't work, checked to make sure the xmp files didn't reference eths.  At a lose as to what to do

    Nevermind - suddenly started working.

    I noticed a problem: when i changed color of Buffs on Offensive Target and opened the options window again the buff name changed form "Anima Depletion#FF0000" to "Anima Depletion#undefined" and the color changed back to bright red. The same thing happend with other colors and other buffs/debuffs i tried. Also after each death/ui reload/zoning the color change back to default. No such problem with self/defensive buffs.

    Nice mod, very helpful for HR Nightmare end boss. Can we get an option to not show permanent effects and those lasting longer than a certain time (e.g. potions)?

    Hey Ethanol

     Thanks for a great mod. It's working perfectly. I just have a couple of requests:

     The option to change colors of the buff windows and the version of the mod displayed in the option window :) 

  • #57

    Need a 'Reset' option and the ability to lock that one frame (cyan background, and 4 bars of different colors)
