DBM 8.0.13 WIP

Postby MysticalOS » Thu Oct 04, 2018 9:32 pm

New Features:

Zuldazar Raid
  • Frida/Kanae updated from heroic raid testing.
  • Grong updated from heroic raid testing

Uldir:
  • Added missing respawn times to Taloc, Ghuun and Zul
  • Updated InfoFrame on zul to include Corrupted Blood stacks on mythic difficulty.
  • Added an icon option override to Vectis for ADVANCED users to use if they are sure there are no conflicts with BW in the raid, to still allow DBM to set icons
  • Added short text to some mythrax timers that will be used if "use short text" option is enabled.
  • Added interrupt helper to Mythrax that counts casts per big add

BfA World Bosses:
  • Updated Tzane

Bug Fixes:

Uldir:
  • Fixed bug where counter on Matrix warning for Ghuun in ANNOUNCE (not info frame) would be one off
  • Fixed a regression that caused some chat yells to start appearing in non mythic again on fetid for debuffs that don't spread. This isn't a recent regression but only recently reported. Sorry I am slow catching things right now. Please continue to report bugs like this until I am back in full swing of things.
  • Improve ghuun mythic timer accuracy by fixing bugs and accounting for additional variables
  • Fixed a bug with timer update code for breath when fetid devourer eats an add.
  • Fixed a bug where tank shear defensive warning on Mythrax was firing on cast end instead of cast start

Changes:

Uldir
  • Changed Void Echos special warning on Mythic Mythrax to be off by default to reduce overall feeling of announce spam. Added a Generic warning count warning to take it's place when special warning is off. If special warning gets enabled, generic warning will auto filter.
  • Changed voice pack warning for Imminent Ruin to generically say "run out" instead of "move to <iconname>" since not everyone uses icon assigned strat.

5 Man Dungeons:
  • Last boss of Siege of Boralus will now throttle slam tank warnings if multiple tentacles up
  • Changed Power Shot warning on Sky Capn in Freehold to general announce instead of special warning to reduce overall feel of special warning spam on fight when abilities line up. This ability was chosen because 0.5 seconds really isn't a lot of time to do anything about it (or dodge it) anyways. It's a mechanic you mostly just spread for.

DBM 8.0.12 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Sat Sep 29, 2018 4:50 am

New Features:

Zuldazar Raid:
  • Added full mod drycoded warning/timer support for both versions of Grong encounter.
  • Added full mod drycoded warning/timer support for Frida/Kanye encounter.
    Added preliminary support for remaining encounters in zone. No warnings yet, just basic combat detection and stats. (Updated to build 27985)

Crucible of Storms:
  • Added preliminary support for zone and all bosses within. No warnings yet, just basic combat detection and stats.

BfA World Bosses:
  • Updated Hailstone Construct timers to use real timers instead of AI

Bug Fixes:

Core:
  • Fixed regression in DBM-GUI from over 3 years ago that broke drop down menus in very niche DBM plugins like DBM-RaidLeadTools.

Uldir:
  • Fixed bug where updateAllTimers function on MOTHER was missing the 8.5 side (10.9 top down, 8.5 ALL on mythic) ICD beams cause. Now timers should feel better regardless of how you do your pushes and interactions you get based on when she changes rooms. this SHOULD cover all her ICDs now and be last remaining bug with DBMs dynamically updating timers for this fight.
  • Fixed Decaying Flesh and Thrumming Pulse not passing duration in namplate aura.

BfA World Bosses:
  • Fixed missing voice pack sounds for two warnings on Jiarak

Changes:

Uldir:
  • Changed Gaze of G'huun warning to use airhorn by default. Users felt it sharing same sound as Malignant Growth didn't separate warnings enough. (Remember, you can always install a voice pack to get MUCH more separation and clarity in warnings)

DBM 8.0.11 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Fri Sep 21, 2018 7:36 am

New Features:

Core:
  • CN Local Update
  • Kr Local Update
  • German Local Update

Uldir:
  • Added new feature to Zek'voz that allows tank to tweak when taunt warning is shown. By default it is off, but if enabled, will show taunt warning immediately after Shatter instead of waiting for 2nd Void Lash.
  • Updated timers/warnings for Mythic G'huun
  • Added icon option for Bursting Boil to Mythic G'huun
  • Added general announce for when chutes open on Fetid, since some like to know when the adds start to spawn. Special warnings are still for when they are attackable.
  • Added Burrow timer to G'huun

5 Man Dungeons:
  • Added announces and timers for brews cast by Rummy Mancomb during council of captains encounter in Freehold
  • Added Optional Interrupt (off by default) to trash warnings in MOTHERLOAD!! for Rock Lance

BfA World Bosses:
  • Updated warnings/timers for Jiarak

Bug Fixes:

Core:
  • Fixed regression that'd cause the raid target index (icon) not to display next to player name on info frame in some cases

Uldir:
  • Fixed yell countdown on mythic mythrax, it's 12 seconds there too now, not 8 like beta.
  • Fixed initial timers for living weapon and ruin when leaving intermission on Mythic Mythrax
  • Fixed some intermission timers on Mythrax
  • Fixed Mythic Adds timers on Fetid, they were also 55 at one point, but they are 75 now :D
  • Fixed infoframe on fetid to actually show correct health percentage and cast time remaining on enticing instead of 0 for health and total cast time
  • Fixed Ranges being too big for fetid devourer. ranges aren't 20 and 8 anymore. they are 10 and 4. 12 and 6 used by DBM for 2 yard buffer

5 Man Dungions:
  • Fixed bug where timers didn't cancel when a captain died during Council of Captains encounter in Freehold
  • Fixed bug that'd cause Broadside warning text/sound not to show/play on lockwood in Siege of Boralus
  • Fixed a bug where Slam warning on last boss of Siege of Boralus was on for everyone by default instead of just tanks. Only tanks need to see this warning because they should be aiming slams away from group.

Changes:

Uldir:
  • Changed Icon used for Blood Feast on Mythic Ghuun from 6 (square), to 7 (X). This was done so icons 1-6 could be reserved for Bursting Boil.
  • Changed Decaying warning on Mythic Zul to no longer announce when on Crawgs. It'll only announce when it's on priority targets to cut down on announce spam. Nameplate auras and auto icon will of course still show where debuff is even for crawgs per usual.
  • Changed option default for Crawg energy nameplate auras to [...]

DBM 8.0.10 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:52 pm

New Features:

Core:
  • Add KeepMove and StopMove special warnings that can improve clarity of these types of mechanics
  • Added some new wipe sounds, curtesy of Bwonsamdi

Uldir:
  • Added a pre warning that eye beam is soon, 5 seconds before eye beams start going out.
  • Added an auto range checker to zekvoz that will auto open 6 seconds before first eye beam, and auto close after 3rd eye beam has finished casting.
  • Preliminary Mythic Mythrax updates from public logs.
  • Finished Vectis infoframe update and enabled it. Should now include vector targets, icons, time remaining in addition to lingering stacks. Remember, lingering is sorted based on Option in vectis mod as well to sort either highest to lowest, or lowest to highest. Currently, the thought process in mind is default is now lowest so you can see who currently has omega debuff and who best candidates are to take it next all within same frame. However, if you are using a weak aura such as reloe's to do group based assignments, you may want to go use highest to lowest sort method instead so that info frame serves a different purpose and isn't redundant with weak aura.
  • In addition, if you aren't using a Weak aura for group based tracking of lingering, DBM has that covered too if you want!. Go into Vectis options an enable the party only option at the bottom.
  • Added a new boss mod scanner on engage for Vectis that will determine if there are any BW users in raid with assist in raid on pull and if there are, will locally disable all icon setting from DBM during encounter to ensure regardless of raid comps boss mod setup, only one mod will be setting icons on Omega Vector. DBM will then sync up yells and personal warnings to the icons set by BW. If no BW assists are in raid, DBM will perform it's own icons per normal.
  • Added new optional special warning (with count) that is OFF by default, for contagion on Vectis. If you enable this, the regular warning for it will be squelched automatically. Intent with the optional warning is if you want to use it to help with raid cooldown assignments like using DBMs notes feature.

Bug Fixes:

Core:
  • Fix bonus roll filter so it doesn’t INCLUDE the difficulty you have it to set to (mythic filter was filtering mythic raids, heroic filter was filtering heroic raids, normal filter was filtering normal raids. filter is meant to filter BELOW your setting, not everything including setting)

Uldir:
  • Fixed a bug where all the Roiling casts said 0 count in yells/warnings
  • Fixed berserk timer on [...]

DBM Status Update

Postby MysticalOS » Sun Sep 16, 2018 3:22 am

For health and stress reasons, as well as just having a plain crappy PC, I will be stepping down from the Mythic raiding scene in WoW. I have been raiding in wow since Burning Crusade and been making mods for DBM since Wrath (almost entirely by myself mind you).

In Mists I was able to switch to doing it full time and greatly improve the quality and feature of mods as well as pace that mods are released for content. Even now, as I write this, DBM has exceptional mods ready to go for mythic+ dungeons and mythic Uldir up through 8/8, with mythrax and ghuun having as best support possible with limited pull data and datamining available. I continue to monitor progression race and scrap through WCL data as it becomes available to update these mods and better support for final 3 will follow as these bosses are downed and data/information for them becomes public. Despite me stepping back from raiding, I do not expect this to change!. After all, Guild I'm in now is only 2/8 (and I was even sat for both of them), doesn't stop me from watching streams, gathering feedback, looking at other peoples logs and producing great mods. Don't take this post as "oh no, DBM is dead". DBM is very much alive!

However, I'm going to be real here. I don't just work on DBM full time. It's all I do period. I have no life, no friends, no time to really do anything else at all. It's not just coding mods here or getting to play the game for money. It's not as peaches as it sounds. It's committing to every ptr/beta even when I have a raid character to maintain on live and raids to go to later that night. It's grinding dungeons, artifact power, world quests, gathering mats, leveling blacksmithing so I can craft even more raid gear, etc. Many hours, EVERY DAY. If there is no ptr/beta, there is always something to catch up on or do. Even then, sometimes something has to give. PVP mods got axed for recently. It's not even just the code refactoring that 8.0 would need (although that's huge reason), it's "where the hell am I going to find time to spam run BGs to make sure these things even work?".

In addition, I'm still a caretaker for another human being too. My 70 year old disabled mother needs my help a lot too. I have to step away from computer a lot to help her do something she can't do on own. Do errands or do chores. In fact, since bfa has launched I've been so buried that my grass is now over 2 feet tall. :\

I'll be honest, I've become so overwhelmingly stressed w [...]
