BuffTimers  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.4
by: coolmodi, Grashek
Update for 2.7:
I'm not playing ESO anymore, so I don't actively maintain this addon. Thanks to Grashek sending me a fix for API changes I uploaded an update for 2.7 though.


Want to really see that one single buff you want to keep up 24/7 for max. dps, or maybe a short duration buff that is hard to keep track of between all the other buff symbols? I wanted to, but couldn't find an addon for that. So here it is, the next addon in the line of addons with a crappy name convention:

BuffTimers! (doesn't only work for buffs)

Update 1.31:
  • Updated to new API version
  • Can now show multiple notifications at once, each will fade after beeing shown the set duration.
  • Notifications will now work again correctly if an effect didn't run out completely after the notification fired before.
  • (WIP) Custom filters: On recieving X start timer for Y. A bar for Y has to be configured! E.g. Molten Armaments doesn't give you the Major Sorcery buff, use this to make it start the Major Sorcery bar too.

What is this exactly?
With this you can make completely stand-alone timer bars for one specific spell each. You just go in settings (see pictures), choose how many bars you want, and then choose for every bar what spell it should show, also the size, colors and optional notifications(sound+text) can be customized.

READ BELOW BEFORE USE!

Due to how the game/API works tracking some things isn't as straight forward as you might expect.
  1. The effectname is not always the same as the spell that causes it (extreme case: Cleansing Ritual from templars, the effect is called Healing Ritual. Yes, like the other spell...)! I included a debug mode that will output all effect changes into chat, activate it by /buti d or in settings, then use the spell you want to track and check how it's actually called.
  2. Additionally some spells have multiple effects with the same name which can cause the spell to not be tracked correctly by the addon. In this case I have to implement special handlers/filters to make it work. If you encounter such a spell please activate debug (see 1.) and send me the complete output that using that spell produces. Use my author portal for that or leave a comment, a screen of the whole chat output is probably the easiest way
    Example of what I need (here Cleansing Ritual): i.imgur.com/8GY82WH.png
About profiles:
You can create, rename and delete profiles in settings.
Loading profiles can also be done in settings or with /buti profilename/ID, you can output a list with profilenames and their ID with /buti p.
(Important: Deleting profiles will decrease the ID of every profile above by one!)

Loading a profile with more bars than currently active will reload the UI, loading one with less will set the loaded profile's number to the previous profile's setting and lock the additional bars. That will prevent further loading screens in the future and also won't change the UI of the loaded profile.

Chat commands
/buti d Toggles debug mode.
/buti s Opens settings panel.
/buti p List profiles.
/buti profilename/ID Load profile by name or ID.

Every time I reload UI or log out, the bars end up on top of each other and just go wherever they want, and not where I place them. Is this just a bug or is there a fix I am not seeing?

Can you make it so its a setting to not allow others to trigger buff timers, I mainly used this as a feature. I have actually reverted to a older version cause I need this.

Buff Timer for Werewolves : LYCANTHROPY

Any other Werewolves using "BuffTimers"?

Has anyone been able to get BuffTimers working with "LYCANTHROPY" - to watch how much werewolf time is remaining?

Also - Can anyone help how to configure "Devour" recast time? (To see when you can use "Devour" again.)

I managed to get "LYCANTHROPY" to work, once - and only while "/buti d" was working; but, then it stopped altogether.

To test this, I added "LYCANTHROPY" as Bar 1, and "SHADOWY DISGUISE" as bar 2. "SHADOWY DISGUISE" works just fine, though.

What am I missing?

Thanks!

Grashek send me a fix for the API changes (reacting to other players spells), and I also fixed missing addon menu modules (only was a problem if no other addon loaded those).

My other addons work fine.
Tested it and it works fine for me with current version, maybe was a problem with the old one?

And for people wanting to use IDs instead of names have a look at this: http://www.esoui.com/portal.php?id=2...featureid=1568
I don't think I'll change anything anytime soon myself, if ever. Only updated because I got send the fix

Hello, I have a question.

Major expedition can be gained by both skills crippling grasp and refreshing path (magicka NB).

I use 2 separate bars for both of those skills, but I had to call crippling grasp "major expedition" for it to work. Is there a way to block out major expedition from refreshing path in the bar that I use crippling grasp on? I hope this makes sense

Desperation

I'm sure I speak for many of us when I say that we would LOVE an update to this add-on. It's the BEST buff addon out there, and since Homestead, has had some issues with picking up other players abilities, etc. I know there were some API changes, unfortunately this add-on suffered as a result.

Thanks and hope to see update soon!

Odd bug, I found after update.

So I haven't received a UI error I just noticed this running around with groups and no groups. BuffTimers now activates on other player's spell. For example, I have a timer for Liquid Lightning and Blockade of Fire. If someone uses one of those spell around me the countdown timer begins and/or refreshes my timers.

Not sure what to call this. Thank you for BuffTimers!

Only Show in Combat?

Does anyone know how to get the bars to only show when you're in combat? I selected 'Always Show' then deselected it and it made them go away outside combat, but then as soon as I cast my abilities, they show up as expected but then stay again in all windows even the CP screen and the like. Please help, this is annoying.
