DBM 7.2.8 WIP

Postby MysticalOS » Wed May 24, 2017 9:06 am

New Features:

Core:
  • Added support for additional Timewalking difficulty index (likely used for raids like black temple or outdoor world bosses)

5 Man Dungeons:
  • Added another trash warning to Cathedral of eternal night

Bug Fixes:

Tomb of Sargeras
  • Corrected some timers on mythic difficulty that changed in most recent raid testing.

Nighthold:
  • Removed chat message that'd show when you got call of night (on botanist) that should have been removed months ago that explained how to use HUD/Radar together for it (both of which have been features that haven't worked since nighthold beta). My main is a tank, PLEASE report bugs like this to me. This should have been fixed MUCH sooner. :\
  • Fixed bug where the pre warning for running to wall on mythic elisande for singularity was on by default for healers. It's now ranged DPS only by default. Also fixed a bug where the voice alert actually went off for everyone regardless of settings for run to wall pre warning.

Changes:

Nighthold:
  • Changed voice sound file used on botanist for Call of night to no longer give position assignments and instead just say you are targetted.
  • The voice pack alert for big adds spawning in phase 3 mythic guldan will now also speak add count after "big mob".

DBM 7.2.7 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Thu May 04, 2017 5:59 am

New Features:

Core:
  • Added a new checkbox to Global disables that now lets you disable all LOGIN messages (the one time messages: WHATS NEW, VOICE PACK RECOMMENDED, LOCALIZERS NEEDED, HOW TO BEGIN USING DBM, ETC), update notifications (no matter how out of date DBM is), and mod recommendations (for zones you enter for which mods exist but you do not have them installed). Dev Note 1
  • Added a feature to globally disable sounds (ONLY sounds) in dbm via "/dbm silent" as a toggle.

Nighthold
  • Added audio countdown for Visions on mythic phase 3 guldan
  • Added pre warning to Mythic Elisande for ranged to run to edge of room 5 seconds before singularity

5 Man Dungeons:
  • Added 5 additional trash warnings to CoEN dungeon for Shadow Wave, Dread Scream, Choking Vines, Tome of everlasting Silence, and Lumbering Crash
  • Added audio countdown to chaos cast on Domatrax

Broken Isles:
  • Added actual warnings/timers to Flatsam mod.

Bug Fixes

Nighthold:
  • More fixes for bad winds timers on Mythic guldan because I can't count (timers were right, 2 of em started in wrong place still)
  • Mythic Phase 3 guldan wipes will now report 1/2 bosses defeated instead of 0/2 (if you are in phase 3, you are 1/2 yay). It'll also always report demon withins health in phase 3, not guldans or nil.
  • Fixe some timers that didn't have count in them (and instead showed a 0) in mythic phase 3 guldan
  • Fixed voice pack option default for arcanoslash on trilliax so it's no longer telling non tanks to pop defensives

Changes

Core:

Nighthold (Dev Note 2)
  • Changed countdown voice for Crash on phase 3 mythic guldan and changed it to tank only by default.
  • Change all phase 3 mythic countdowns to start at 6 seconds (up from 4). Note, if using an overwatch or heroes voice, those counts can only start from 5.
  • Eliminated some minor redundancies on guldan mythic such as having two timers for demon within phase starting instead of one (time til cast begins and then cast timer). Now it's just one single cast timer that covers both.
  • Purified Essence [...]

DBM 7.2.6 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Sat Apr 22, 2017 7:13 pm

New Features

Nighthold:
  • Added trash warning for Chosen Fate

Bug Fixes:

Nighthold:
  • First winds timer should now be correct on mythic guldan instead of basically being a pre warning for 2nd one by mistake
  • Timers for FelLord Kuraz & Dzorykx should now cancel if you phase guldan on mythic before they spawns (Kuraz skipable now, Dzorykx is just future planning for solo raids).

5 man Dungeons
  • Venom GTFO on spider boss in arcway now says venom not blink strike

Broken Isles
  • Withered Jim should now report boss health in status messages and no longer report kills as wipes
  • Lowed CD for fear on Shartos. It may be a scaling timer based on group size. If so timer may still not be very accurate.

Changes:

Core:
  • DBM will no longer display Bigwigs/DBM icon conflict message on raid join if you run both mods and are NOT promoted to assistant. However if you do have assist it'll now display conflict message EVERY boss pull to make sure you see it/resolve it. Having icons turned on in both mods when you actually do have assist creates issues and DBM will repeatedly warn you every pull until you disable icons in EITHER mod (yes DBM detects BW icon setting as well, you can turn off icons in DBM OR BW and DBM will detect it and stop showing message). TLDR, let ONLY Bigwigs or ONLY DBM set raid marks, not both or you'll get reminded until you fix it.

Nighthold:
  • Some countdowns on Star Auger now start countdown sooner.
  • Changed elisande bubble timers to accommodate May 2/3 changes to how long they last.
  • Changed bonds of fel timer and countdown on Guldan to be for cast START for tanks (while remaining cast FINISH for everyone else still) since tanks care about this at a different timer from everyone else.

Broken Isles:
  • Changed submerge to a target scan/personal warning on Si'vash

DBM Should be used with a voice pack

Postby MysticalOS » Sun Apr 16, 2017 11:27 pm

Why you should use voice pack and not default sounds:
Encounters have gotten more complex with many abilities and hearing same sounds for multiple warnings causes those sounds to become less effective and get tuned out by user.

In fact, it's lead to many users no longer even paying attention to it and instead customizing all their boss warnings with things like weak auras. What people don't realize is many hours are put into planning and recording custom voice pack warnings that go into dbm that effective eliminate the sound issues all together with a far more pleasant experience. Generic special warning sounds replaced with softer and clearer spoken alerts. Alerts that often and quite literally spell out what warning is for and even what to do for it sometimes. Instead of hearing a pvp flag sound you hear "run over the flowers" in whatever voice pack you choose (yes even multiple to choose from. Even localized ones like korean to speak these things in your preferred language in some cases). Or funny ones such as having Arnold Schwarzenegger telling you what to do.

So you might ask, if it's intended for users to use voice packs, why are they not included in base mod. Two main reasons.
  • 1. Size. It's a lot of media files, and DBM (especially users using alpha versions) can update DBM daily. Making you redownload a package that includes hundreds of media files over and over again is not ideal. Media files for voice packs being a separate optional download lets you only redownload all that media when there is actually a reason to.
  • 2. The work that goes into recording that media is done via multiple 3rd parties. To help support their work, they are ones that should be getting the curse points for said download anyways, not me. You find voice pack (or packs might as well try a few) you like, and download from them.

Where to download:
You can get a pretty big list of voice packs right here (https://www.deadlybossmods.com/downloads.php) as well as finding even more by just doing a search on curse such as https://wow.curseforge.com/search?search=dbm+voice . Just note that some of the no longer maintained/out of date ones may be incomplete. Fortunately even incomplete ones are very usuable. The way dbm is coded, it's smart enough to know that if voice files are missing, to default to original special warning sounds. meaning for example if warning 1 has a voice file but warning 2 does not. Warning 1 plays using voice media and warning 2 will fall back to [...]

DBM 7.2.4 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Thu Apr 06, 2017 8:11 pm

New Features:

Core
  • Classic Raids now support TimeWalking Stats
  • Any Mythic+ dungeon message should now include keystone level, including status whispers when people message you.

Broken Isles
  • Updated Malificus timers

Bug Fixes:

Core:
  • Fixed lua error in new guild version check code. This error is mostly cosmetic and doesn't hurt anything for users of new 7.2.3 version though but they probably will see this error when 7.2.4 is released.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent "OnCombatStart" functions from running on bosses that are engaged when not at full health (such as world bosses)
  • Fixed a bug in the way status whispers are filtered in scenarios so that DBM does reply in artifact challenge scenarios like intended.
  • Remove countdown text feature from all timers and countdowns except pull, since that’s only pace it works since WoW 7.x broke it (only place that doesn’t use scheduling)

Nighthold:
  • Fixed timer for 2nd singularity of mythic elisande (or first depending how you look at the one cast on jump from nightwell) for being 1-2 seconds slow sometimes.
  • Fix for second add timer (FelLord Kuraz) not showing for some on mythic Guldan.
  • Fixed a bug where mythic guldan mod could prematurely end combat if guldan died 10 more seconds before final phase demon became active

Trial of Valor
  • Helya tentacle cast timers on mythic should work better when two tentacles on same side are casting.
  • Fixed bug where infoframe would stay open if you ignore adds and push phase 2 on mythic Odyn.

5 man Dungeons:
  • Fixed bug where CoS Trash mod would try to send chat messages to wrong party chat when in a LFG group or solo.
  • Fixed a bug where Helya (dungeon) barrage warning fired for cast success instead of cast start
