DBM 8.0.4 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Tue Aug 21, 2018 6:56 am

New Features:

  • Added new filter option that enables you to globally disable trash mod warning in normal and heroic dungeons. This filter (if enabled) will still show trash warnings like normal in mythic and mythic plus. It's merely added as a way to recognize that in trivial difficulties, many of the trash mechanics aren't deadly, like they are in higher difficulties.

5 man Dungeons:
  • Added Transfusion trash warning to Atal Dazar
  • Added Goin’ Bananas warning to Freehold Trash
  • Added Shattering Toss warning to Freehold Trash
  • Added Quake Warning to Azerokk in MOTHERLOAD

  • Added Trash warning for Cover to MOTHERLOAD trash
  • Added Trash warning for Earth Shield to MOTHERLOAD trash
  • Added trash warning for Furious Quake to MOTHERLOAD trash
  • Re-added interrupt warning and updated interrupt timer on Goraktul in Waycrest Manor, since interrupts on dark lightning work again during the encounter.
  • Added Soul Volley trash warning to Waycrest Manor
  • Added Decaying Touch Warning to waycrest manor
  • Added new warnings/timers for Cutting Surge, Chain Shot, Tapped Keg, and Whirlpool of Blades to captains encounter in freehold.

DBM 8.0.3/8.0.2 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:49 am

New Features:

  • The DBM outdoor waypoint arrow has been updated to work with local maps in 8.x. Once again useable with /dway x, y
  • Added three new media files to DBM-Core. "Jaina: Beware", "Jaina: Beware (reverb)", and "Saurfang: Don't Die"

  • Added yell to Sanguine Static on taloc.

BfA World Bosses
  • Added all remaining preliminary world boss mods

5 man Dungeons:
  • Added preliminary mods for last two bosses of Temple of Sethraliss


  • Changed timers on zul so adds timers are manually localized by hand instead of auto localized from journal. This was done to shorten timer text and make the add type/name more visible (with a sacrifice that it'll be english for clients DBM isn't localized for)
  • Changed liquify warning on Vectis to be a generic phase change warning instead of a "run away" warning
  • Changed timer for Shear during Mythrax add phase to show single timer for both adds, instead of double timers. Based on latest logs, the two big adds seem to sync their casts, so only one timer is needed.
  • Changed ghuun info frame to only show power of first two bosses in index, which should be Ghuun and drive.
  • Changed DBMs minimap icon to a LibDBIcon/LDB icon. This improves compatibility with 3rd party mods like SexyMap. While at it, all the features of DBM-LDB were merged into DBM-Core, so if you have DBM-LDB installed, go ahead and remove it. Important, these changes update embeds and TOC files, so if updating DBM while game is open, it won't work until game is restarted.

Bug Fixes:

  • DBM-Core will detect Scenario victories better for old Mist of Pandaria scenarios
  • Fixed a bug where DBM was no longer receiving custom broadcasted timers from other users. This was caused by a migration to CHAT_MSG_ADDON_LOGGED for user timers, and me forgetting to uncomment some of the code when 8.0 shipped
  • Fixed a bug where the DBM-LDB warning was hard stopping DBM from finishing to load other things. It's supposed to warn only that DBM-LDB should be uninstalled, not halt loading. 8.0.3

  • Fixed a bug where the taunt warning for Zek would fire when you're the one tanking
  • Fixed some timers on zek. Some nerfed, some buffed. Fight was clearly retuned.
  • Fixed bug where countdown for cleansing flame would be too long on MOTHER
  • Fixed bug where warning for Cleansing flame said wrong spell name on MOTHER
  • Fixed a bug where the top down timer/warning for lasers didn't fire on heroic difficulty on MOTHER
  • Fixed Adds timer on f [...]

DBM - PVP mods discontinued in BfA

Postby MysticalOS » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:45 pm

Technically, they haven't been maintained for a while now, but they haven't really been broken until 8.0. 8.0 overhauls the map code that finally puts nail in coffin for PVP mods.

Why are these mods being dropped when I work on DBM full time? I'm still only one person, and blizzard is pushing more and more content. Dungeons that stay relevant for entire expansion and continue to get new dungeons. Extra challenges like mage tower. In BfA we're getting scenarios back in form of isle expeditions (and DBM had good scenario support in mists and intends to do same for BfA). Not to mention rapid raid content. I even try to keep brawlers guild mods updated.

All this PvE content keeps me too busy to handle side projects like I used to. I haven't done a battleground in years. Literally not since mist of pandaria to be honest. The PVP mods are already out of date and missing some of newer BG stuff.

I had hoped by now I could have reached higher goals on patreon and done what I always wanted to do, bring on more help to outsource stuff like PVP mods to another person to work on. Unfortunately, do to fiasco in December with patreon scaring people off with fee changes (that ended up not going through) and continued decline of support in 2018, I'm not even making enough to support myself and mother, let alone afford additional help. I'm also not trying to be like "give me more money or I cut content". I'd continue working on everything if I could. It's simple logistics that it's too much for one person to do.

Just know that I continue to focus all time and effort on best PvE mods that I can.
