Combat Metronome (GCD Tracker)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v1.4.1
by: Darianopolis [More]
The All-in-one Combat Timing bar.

Track your heavy swings, ability cooldowns and cast/channels all in one bar to help you perfect your rotation timing and take advantage of abilty queuing with live latency information.
Now includes optional Ultimate tracking.

To access the addon settings quickly, enter the command /cm

This addon's counterpart "Combat Auras" has now been released! (You can see it in the preview)
https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info2408-CombatAurasAbilityTimers.html

IMPORTANT - This addon and "Combat Auras" SHOULD always be updated at the same time. They share a common library to improve perforamnce, and there is a good chance on any update that I've made changes to this central library.

Thanks for Seltiix for prototyping the initial sound cue system.

Dependencies:
  • LibAddonMenu-2.0
  • LibStub
  • libAddonKeybinds

Features
  • Heavy attack + Cast / Channel + GCD tracking = Consolidate all of your combat timing into one bar
  • Displays your ping live on the bar to allow spell queueing with live latency information.
  • Timing adjustments. Firing abilities too early or too late? - Fine tune the displayed GCD / heavy timer / cast / channel individually (or globally) for ANY ability to best suit your play.
  • Auto hides - Keeps your UI clean
  • Flashing animation on health percentage during execute
  • Keybind to force display + show absolute health
  • 'Tick Tock' sound cues for audio feedback
Future Features (No guarantee or time frame):
  • Bar texturing and border ?
  • Light attack miss alert ? (Audio/Visual alert to provide feedback and improve timing reflexes)
Known issues:
  • Some types of cast cancels are not tracked
  • Rarely, ground targeted abilities (E.g. Endless Hail) won't trigger a timer

I'll see what I can do - It's certainly something I'm interested in adding
Another simples addition would be to allow the player to increase the size of the bar (not to be confused with duration), because longer bars mean more precision, while shorter bars mean more visibility.

I've updated the file format so that it should be compatible with minion, and shouldn't make a mess when you extract it
Works for me now
Yep,thanks!

Hope you make it work

I tried manually moving addon to "live" folder in my documents, but it doesn't work. It's not showing ingame. Am I doing something wrong?
Hi, happy to help.

Firstly, I've released a new version (v0.5) which is worth grabbing over the old version (visual and stability improvements - might even fix this issue )

Here's a few things that might help
  • You mentioned you'd moved the addon to the "live" folder. Addons should be placed in "live/AddOns", not directly in the live folder
  • Just for sanity's sake; have you restarted your game? (the whole thing not just /reloadui or relogging) Addon manifests are only indexed on the initial game start.
  • Also for sanity's sake; does the addon show at all in your addon selector (in-game) and if so; is it selected?
  • Do you have both LibAddonMenu-2.0 and LibStub installed?
  • Are you running the latest version of ESO - Elsewyr 5.0.5 (API Version: 100027)
  • Do you have the "Circonians Addon Selector" addon installed? This is the selector I have used and I don't know if other selectors will pick up my mod.
  • Have you ticked "Allow out-of-date addons" in the top right of the addon selection menu. This *shouldn't* affect my addon but it doesn't hurt to try.

Hope one of those suggestions helps otherwise I'll see if I can find out what's going on
Downloaded new version. Still can't see addon.
- yea, I moved folder in "live/AddOns" folder
- I restarted the game, still nothing
- addon doesn't even show on the list ingame even after installing LibAddonMenu and LibStub (minion)
- my eso version is 5.0.5.1802680

Did you try to add addon to show on Minion?
