Combat Reticle  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.3
by: Aetheron, calia1120
WHAT IT IS:
Combat Reticle is a graphical add-on that greatly enhances visibility and utility of the on-screen reticle for targeting and interacting with items, NPCs, and other players in the game world. The primary goal is to make the reticle more visible during combat to improve targeting accuracy. This is accomplished by allowing the user to customize the reticle image, color, opacity, scale, rotation, and animation mode. A customized reticle can either use a single image or include an addition overlay image with it's own independent visual settings. Considering the large number of included reticle images (73 and counting), and the fact that there are nine distinct reticle modes that can be used and configured, the result is a nearly infinite number of reticle configuration possibilities! (for the math geeks, it's over 1e300 combinations!)

Combat Reticle does not acquire or display any target data. This is partly due to performance considerations in large PvP battles, and partly due to a preference for a minimal UI. If you would like to have target data, it's possible that Combat Reticle could coexist with another reticle add-on. Compatibility with Rainbow Reticle is confirmed. I have not tested with others, though I plan to. If you use other target information reticle addons, though please report any issues you encounter to help improve this. Thanks! - Calia

WHAT's NEW:
Version 1.5.3 contains a fix for a LibAddonMenu error on load when no other addons are installed.

FEATURES:
  • Nine configurable reticle modes (including four stealth/disguised modes)
  • Customize reticle image, color, opacity, scale, rotation, and animation
  • Overlay mode for composite reticles
  • 73 available reticle images to choose from
  • Rotation includes plain and pendulum modes
  • Animation can modulate opacity, saturation, or scale
  • Interaction mode can indicate empty/blocked items
  • A variety of pre-made themes for easy and fast configuration
  • Ten quick slots to store and retrieve configuration sets
  • Reticle brightness control (with hot-key mapping)
  • Allows on-screen interaction and/or stealth text to be hidden or shown
  • Anti-flicker reticle mode filter
  • High-performance implementation, CPU-intensive features can be disabled
  • Comprehensive configuration panel with "live" reticle preview

RETICLE MODES
Combat Reticle supports nine specific reticle modes. Each mode can be customized, disabled, or set to game default (i.e. show standard ESO reticle). Stealth modes utilize the default ESO "stealth eye" as the base reticle, but an overlay image can be used with full customization options. The reticle modes are:
  • Interactive - An interactable item or friendly NPC/player character is targeted.
  • Target Hostile - An enemy (hostile) mob, NPC, or player character is targeted and range is close enough to activate skill bar. Like the skill bar, this does not always mean that the target is close enough to attack.
  • Target Neutral - An attackable neutral mob is targeted and range is similar to "target hostile" mode (skill bar is not shown until unit is attacked).
  • Combat - Player is engaged in combat.
  • Normal - Default reticle mode (i.e. none of the above modes and not stealthed or disguised).
  • Stealth Interactive - Player is hidden and an item or friendly NPC/player character is targeted and can be interacted with.
  • Stealth Target Hostile - Player is hidden and an enemy (hostile) mob, NPC, or player character is targeted.
  • Stealth Target Neutral - Player is hidden and an attackable neutral mob is targeted.
  • Stealth Combat - Player is hidden and engaged in combat.
  • Stealth Normal - Player is hidden and no other reticle modes apply.

DETAILED DOCUMENTATION
Please refer to the "readme.rtf" file located in the "docs" folder of the add-on for complete, detailed information on how to use and configure Combat Reticle.

Lightbulb Feature Request

I love this addon, thanks so much for making it.

This addon is the perfect platform for a better bounty indicator. Would it be possible to add a mode that changes the default non-combat reticle when you are wanted by the law? Especially on large monitors, the normal bounty indicator isn't enough and I think it would be really cool if the I had an indicator where I cannot ignore and forget it.

Thanks again for the addon.

When you use the regular reticle in the game, the reticle changes when you hover over a hostile target, regardless of if you are in combat. I cannot seem to find this feature in the Combat Reticle add on.

To clarify when I mean... When the "Combat" mode is active, is there a way to have a distinction when I am targeting a hostile target with the reticle, and when I am not? Example would be for Dolmens or large group raids. A lot is going on, and sometimes it's hard to tell if you have your reticle on the enemy target or not... I would like the animation/color to change while in "combat mode" to tell me that my target is locked... Is this possible?
Thank you!
Hey, no, you're not missing anything - it doesn't have that feature currently. I thought about it early on, but decided I already had so many modes that it might be overkill (and make the configuration even more complex). I like the idea though. I guess in combat, you would have a default combat reticle, then optional hostile and neutral target reticles. I would need to add two more modes with configurations. Or maybe another option would be to use the other existing reticle modes in combat (normal, neutral, and hostile target), then add a third combat texture overlay (like a red bracket, for example) when in combat. Let me think about it...

LibAddonMenu error fixed

FYI, I just uploaded the fix for the LibAddonMenu error seen when no other addons were installed. There was an error in the manifest file that was preventing the menu library from loading properly. I also updated to the latest version of LibAddonMenu (r23).

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: error

Ah, yes I see the error now after removing all my other addons. I should have tried that fisrt, but I was guessing it was an interaction issue with the translation mod. I'll try to debug this, but libaddonmenu isn't my code so it might take me a while. Thanks for your patience!

I recommend uninstalling all add-ons, then re-install combat reticle first to see if that works. I strongly suspect that the translation add-on is conflicting somehow with libaddonmenu. (I'm not sure who maintains libaddonmenu these days.)

Load error fixed in 1.5.2

The issue was apparently being caused by a race condition induced by having the CombatReticl.xml file list ahead of the LUA scripts. I guess the game engine would try to activate the add-on before all the scripts were loaded. Seems a bit silly that the engine would prioritize XML files over scripts... Anyway, I've been running for over a week with the fix and have not seen the error, so I believe this was the problem. Big thanks to Baertram and votan for identifying the root cause!

Got back recently after a long time not playing ESO. I spotted this error, too. And I have a theory that seems to have stopped the errors, at least for now.

In the first line of your OnUpdate, you have:

Code:
if ( g_render_reticle ) then
This OnUpdate seems like it might be firing before owned_icon possibly fully, properly exists. That could be causing a weird issue. And it was the only thing I was suspicious about. So I did this:

Code:
if ( g_render_reticle ) and ( owned_icon ) then
And it doesn't look like the error has popped up since. I could be completely off base, mind you. Just figured I'd mention it.

There's no function by that name anywhere in the addon - can you try reinstalling the addon and clearing your saved variables? Were you running a customized version of it at any point?
Hey, I'm back! (at least for a while). I saw this error myself and I think it's caused by what's called a "race condition" in the initialization of my mod. It only happened once, but that's how these things are - difficult to debug. I'll take a look and see if I can root out the problem.
