Wire's OCD
Version 0.1.2
Updated 2011/11/04

Are you OCD about tracking what your raid has off-cooldown?

Wire's OCD Addon will help you track ability cooldowns for members of your raid.

Features
  • Track ability cooldowns for members of your raid!
    • Timers are sorted by cooldown, ability and genre
    • Enable and disable abliity tracking globally
    • Control cooldown variation by player
    • Track your raid's Planar Charges and Soulwalk timers
  • Graphical User Interface!
  • Command Line Interface

How It Works

Install and you're good to go!

Options

Type "/ocd options" or left-click the "Cemetary" icon labeled "OCD" to open the "Options" window.

The "Cemetary" icon serves as an application pin and will be visible on-screen at all times. You can drag and drop it anywhere on the screen, then lock it into place by right-clicking.

Command Line

Type "/ocd" to bring up a list of commands:
  • "/ocd clear" will reset all persistent data
  • "/ocd debug" will toggle debug mode
    • Debug mode is toggled "Off" by default
  • "/ocd enable" will toggle new timer display
  • "/ocd stacking" will toggle timer stacking "Up" or "Down"
    • Timer stacking is "Down" by default

Raid

Each time you open the "Options" window, your raid list will be updated automatically. Press the "Refresh" button to update the raid list manually if the window remains open.

Raid Abilities

Track Planar Charges and Soulwalk timers for your raid through the "Options" window.

Change the cooldown of your guild's Soulwalk by selecting "Soul Walk" from the "Raid Abilities" list and then the desired cooldown from the adjacent "Cooldowns" list.

Cooldown Timers

Clicking an inactive timer will activate it. Clicking an active timer will reset and deactivate it.

Clicking a player's Soulwalk timer in the "Options" window will have the same effect.

Cooldown Tracking

By Player

Click a player in the "Raid" list to view their trackable abilities in the "Player Abilities" list. This list is filtered by calling and global override.

Abilities for which a cooldown timer is currently displayed are highlighted. Click an ability in the "Player Abilities" list to proactively create or retroactively dismiss a cooldown timer for that ability.

Selecting an ability from the "Player Abilities" list will display a list of available cooldowns in the adjacent "Cooldowns" list. Select the desired cooldown for each player and ability from the "Cooldowns" list. This new cooldown will be applied to any non-active cooldown timer for that player.

Global Override

Click a genre in the "Genre" list to view a list of abilities in the adjacent "Global Override" list.

Click an ability in the "Global Override" list to toggle whether it is tracked. Tracked abilities are highlighted and will display cooldown timers whenever a player in your raid uses that ability. Untracked abilities will not display cooldown timers.

Installation
  • Download from Curse.com or RiftUI.com
  • Extract the files to a folder on your desktop
  • Run Rift
  • Click the "Addons" button at the character select screen
  • Click the "Open Addon Directory" button on the "Addons List" screen to open a "Windows" folder window
  • The path should be: "< game directory >\Interface\Addons"
  • Copy the addon folder from your desktop into the newly opened folder window, replacing if prompted
  • Click "Refresh" on the "Addons List" screen once the new files are in the "Addons" folder
  • Make sure the "Wired" and "OCD" addons are enabled and you should be all set

Known Issues
  • Planar Charges
    • Planar Charge information is not available for anyone but yourself. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support and will be changed in 1.6.
  • Roles
    • Role information is not available for anyone outside your current group. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support.
    • There is no way to know what ablities players in your raid have available. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support.
    • To counteract this, communicate with your fellow raiders and proactively create cooldown timers.
  • Instant Cast-time Abilities
    • Non-damaging instant cast-time abilities are currently untrackable. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support.
    • Combat Rez
      • A combat rez is currently tracked only when the target actually accepts the rez. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support with regards to instant cast-time abilities.
      • If two players attempt to rez the same target, only the player who's rez was actually accepted will get a cooldown timer.
      • To counteract this, communicate with your fellow raiders and use the manual override (click the missed cooldown timer to activate it).
  • Timing
    • There is no way to know if a player's ability is on cooldown when they join your raid. This is a limitation of Trion's LUA support.
    • To counteract this, communicate with your fellow raiders and use the manual override (click the missed cooldown timer to activate it).

Problems

If you experience any errors, feel free to contact me in-game (Wire @ Byriel) or via this thread, PM or email (wire dot byriel at gmail dot com).

Thanks

Special thanks to Amarylis @ Byriel for help testing, timing and photographing.

Soon. (tm)

I've fully implemented langauge support for RaidKiller (and all Wired addons), but have yet to go through OCD reindexing everything.

It should be in soon, I believe I've received all the ability names translated into German already.

Actually i was not accusing you of anything ... was just trying to show what i could look like or what the utility could be.

I'll pass on this one but I still keep my eyes open for your future developement

The point of this addon is, as Oakayam pointed out, to coordinate combat rezes, soul walks, guild rezes, flaring power, verse of joy, wild growth, etc. All things that the raid leader asks "who has X up?" or "who's next on X?" or "how much time left on X?".

By tracking abilities automatically, your raid becomes more efficient. No one has to ask who's next, there's no idecision, people can see the order and time remaining at all times and things invariably flow better. It has nothing to do with spying on people for personal pleasure as you seem to be implying.

Although, on that note... it really is amusing seeing people randomly mis-hit their defensive cooldowns 5 seconds into a raid fight when they aren't tanking, or randomly hitting verse of joy 60s before a fight even starts. That stuff is priceless also.

@Lisbeth

You don't coordinate Combat rezes, souls walks and guild rezes or flaring power with Verse of Joy?

Hmm ...

Hi Wire

Been looking at it and i have a hard time seeing the use of that addon ... Even for a raid leader, I'm not sure to understand the point of tracking the abilities of the raid force.

Is it a kind of "big brother" addon allowing to check if ppl in your raid are using their abilities are their best ?

I'm a huge supporter of the raidkiller addon as you know but really this one ....
