I have a question please,

The indicator 1 or 2 is permanently on my screen which is good however no matter where I put it when in a boss fight it is no longer displayed.

Do I have something wrong at my end or does this not work for boss fights?

Thanks

I will find out how the .dds files are made, and try it myself.
In the options panel there are options for left/right arrows, up/down arrows, one/two bars, circles and triangles. Each bar can be set to a different colour as well.

Thank you for the feedback, sadly, PC is still acting up -- although I think I've narrowed it down to an interaction between the motherboard (Asus ROG X570 Gaming-E), the NVMe SSD (Samsung 970 EVO) and Windows versions later than 19.09. Need to find some money. I think it's replace hardware time. :-]

As to the addon auto-switching the bar, and I might be wrong, but I don't believe addons are allowed to do that -- would come under the heading of 'automating game play'. Addons aren't supposed to do anything that interferes with or automates combat in anyway -- example: blocking you from casting a spell or casting a spell for you.

However, maybe the planned continuous bar number display might help you -- a numeral or symbol displayed next to the reticle is my current thinking. Been thinking out ideas, just can't code them at the moment.
Hmmmm, I think this would not necessarily qualify as automated combat as it does nothing to automatically attack or defend. There are other add-ons which do similar. One that comes to mind is 'AutoSlotSwitch' which switches out your rotary menu to a specific potion or other item when you enter combat and swaps it back when you leave. Perhaps you could have a look and maybe even contact that author to get his input? I really think this would be a valuable option to an already great addon!

Thanks!
Oh, thank you for the info on AutoSlotSwitch, that might actually be useful ... the number of times I've summoned an anniversary cake (for example) when trying to drink a potion in comb ... yer, don't want to admit to that. ;-)

Will take a look at this once I get back in game.

By default this is at 1000 (for one second) and I have changed it a few times to get a longer duration out of it but it doesnt seem to work. I changed it first to 15000, and then to 9000 thinking it just wasnt going over 10 seconds but no luck there either
In addition to the duration for each animation, there is also a timer that calls the StopAnimation() function after three seconds (line 375):

Code:
-- Register for update to terminate animation after 3000ms.
eventManager:RegisterForUpdate("BarSwapFeedbackAnimationTimeout", 3000, StopAnimation)
You might want to try increasing the duration of that timer as well that is a global timer, it might break the other animation options.

Sorry I can't test this at the moment, waiting on new PC parts.

Re: No Fade

Hoping to push an API update soon, and I do want to look into options regarding alternate sides, some fresh options for notifications, and, I'm thinking, a numeric readout attached to the reticle for the current bar.

Unfortunately, I don't have a computer that can run ESO (or pretty much anything) at the moment, so can't implement and test anything new.

Despite the main rig being a fairly newish machine (built it Dec 2019), it can run the old Windows 10 19.09 edition (and earlier) fine, but anything from 20.04 onwards the Windows UI randomly hangs, requiring a hard reset. Nothing is reported in the Event Log ether.

Windows itself isn't crashing (no blue screens), as an example, watching a stream the video will freeze, but the audio keeps playing and you can't interact with anything on the screen -- although the mouse pointer still moves around.

I've wiped and installed fresh copies of 20.04, 20H2 and currently 21H1, with the same results -- so it isn't something connected to upgrading or 3rd party app conflicts. It happens with just Windows. Go back to 19.09 and the problem goes away, but then Windows updates itself to 21H1 and the problem comes right back.

Currently testing the video card on my old i7 2600K board, and so far there are no issues with it running with 21H1 on that old board (10 years old now). Might be an issue with my X570 motherboard. Ran MemTest86 on my RAM got 0 errors and a pass.

Until I can resolve this issue, any enhancements are going to have to wait.

Just wanted to let you all know that your requests are not being ignored.

Sorry.

No Fade

Agreed with the no-fade option. It would be nice to see a constant visual of what bar I have up.

+1 for this! It would be great if the addon left the '1' or '2' somewhere on the UI after selection. Currently, I use an additional addon for that.

Thanks for a terrific addon!

I've definitely considered that option of 1 and 2 on alternate sides as something I might like myself, as well as the option to use different glyphs for people that use one bar for DPS the other for Healing.

The main problem right now is time. This last year has been crazy for a lot of us and 2021 isn't looking like it's calming down. Haven't been able to play much since December. :-/

Unfortunately, due to real-life commitments right now, various projects, I don't have much time to look at this option. The bar swap currently triggers the game's animation system to play one of the built-in animations. Not saying it's impossible, it might be possible to have the pulse run indefinitely, just that the people who originally got me to write this wanted it to show and go away. :-)

Two alternative addons that might be more what you're looking for. One is called SwitchBar II (https://esoui.com/downloads/info1235...arII.html#info), the other (although it doesn't look like it's been updated in a while) is called What Bar Am I On (https://esoui.com/downloads/info1667...mIOn.html#info). I used to use that second one myself before I got the idea for this one from using Votan's fishing addon.
