Fancy Action Bar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.3
by: andy.s [More]
This addon shows both weapon bars and tracks durations of your active skills. Its main goal is to be as lightweight as possible and fine tune each tracked ability to show only most useful effects.

Features

1. Highlighted active skills and current weapon bar.
2. Instant swap animation. No more boring flipping icons.
3. Fine tuned abilities like Teleport Strike (show Minor Vulnerability applied by it), Focused Aim (Minor Fracture), Shadow Image (stop countdown after you port to your shade), etc.
4. Gamepad mode support.
5. High performance, which adds some limitations though (read below).

Missing features

1. This addon doesn't track ultimate duration. I'm still not sure if it's needed, and also showing both ultimates won't look neat due to their special button visuals, especially in gamepad mode.
2. The addon doesn't track your enemies debuffs, so if some abilities are purged or dodged, they will keep ticking on your bar. I'm not planning to change this behavior now, because I want to keep the addon as lightweight as possible.

If you want to move action bar, then I recommend using Azurah. There is no point to add this feature to the addon, because it will obviously conflict with other addons which allow to move UI elements. Note: Azurah re-enables weapon swap icon by default, so you will need to hide it in it's settings (Action Bar tab).
1.1.3
- Fixed Subterranean Assault duration.
- Added Minor Berserk tracking to Camouflaged Hunter.

1.1.2
- Updated some abilities ids to work with Markarth DLC (sorry, don't have time for more features atm).

1.1.1
- Added Burning Talons DoT timer.

1.1.0
- Added tracking of different stacks, like Grim Focus, Bound Armaments, etc. Note: Stone Giant stacks are only tracked in Harrowstorm, because the skill was changed there.
- Fixed buggy icons when using a special action bar like Werewolf, Frostvault skeever bar, etc.
- Fixed some durations.
- Fixed an empty action bar after /reloadui.
- Switching between Gamepad and Keyboard modes doesn't reload UI anymore (but it's possible that under some circumstances action bars won't be aligned perfectly).

Would it be possible to switch the Primary and Backbar positions? Frontbar at bottom, Backbar at top?

I'm sorry to hear you have some issues, but AFAIK they all are caused by other addons throwing LUA errors, so identify them and report to their authors. This addon is innocent

I was able to get Fancy Action Bar working, by identifying issues with the embedded libs with other addons that also touch the action bar / cooldowns.

IOW, Fancy Action Bar is fine, it's other addons that are causing the issue.

Steps to fix:
1. install Bug Catcher
2. open up Bug Catcher (/bugs), then wipe all bugs
3. swap to 2nd action bar, use an ability that causes icons on the 1st bar to mess up
4. swap back to the 1st action bar
5. open up Bug Catcher (/bugs)
5. go through each bug, and see which addons have an embedded lib that was causing the issue, and delete the embedded libs. You may need to install the lib as a separate addon (i.e. the proper way to maintain libs). Alternatively, you can disable the offending addon

First off, thanks so much for your addon! I love it!

Hope your still around to look at it!

Thanks for your time!

Small bug

Hello,

I have noticed on my stam warden that the timer for the bull netch when casted resets the timer for forward momentum to 25 seconds as well upon use.

Thank you for making this addon as aside from this small bug its always been spot on.

Hey, thanks for the super cool addon!

I don't use the big arrow, and I actually like the original curvy arrow. Any chance we can have a toggle for it in settings, too?

Offending line:
Code:
-- weaponSwapControl:SetAlpha(0)
Thanks!

It has to do with comparing the timers in the default UI (Settings > Combat > Buffs & Debuffs > "Always Show") with this addon's timers.

Activate a buff and compare the timer on the ability in weapon bar from this addon with the timer provided by the UI.

They're slightly off.

You can fix this by adding the code in red to the following line in Main.lua:
local duration = math.floor(effect.endTime - time())
I've been testing the UI, and boy am I frustrated with how it looks like the built-in buffs & debuffs work.

They seem to be off by a second. E.g. if I watch the buff timers go to zero, the skill tooltips still have the buffed value for another second. Which seems to imply the built-in buff timers are wrong.

So ignore the post from me that is quoted above - your FAB addon is fine.
It can be confusing, because there are no fractions, so a number 1.5 can be shown as 1 or 2 depending on the addon. It's a matter of personal preference, actually, there is no correct way, it's something you should be aware of to maximize your efficiency. I chose to show "0" only when the skill actually runs out.

FAB does not work correctly with EFFECT_RESULT_UPDATED. While events with EFFECT_RESULT_UPDATED are coming, the timer is infinitely updated to ability duration.

Changes to bar

Hi!

Not sure if this is seen by the author, or if anyone else can assist... I love this addon, but would like to be able to have the bars side by side, so looks like one long bar, with maybe a slight glow around the bar that you are currently on.

Any ideas, thoughts or even maybe idea for future release, I would love to hear back!

Thank you all.

Have a great time gaming.
