DBM 8.0.2 WIP

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

New Features:

Core:
  • 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"

Uldir
  • 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

Changes:

Uldir
  • 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:

Core:
  • 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

Uldir
  • 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 fetid Devourer heroic
  • Fixed bug where incoming adds timer didn't show on zul (different from Cd bars which did. All adds should have a 12 second spawn timer before attackable, after bos [...]

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.

DBM 7.3.31 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Mon May 14, 2018 7:01 am

New Features:

Core:
  • **Added a new and improved "CheckInterruptFilter" function. In addition to what it already did (only warned to interrupt if caster is your current target or focus) to now also check if your interrupt spell is actually available and not on cooldown. ALL mods for legion and BfA have been updated to use improved Interrupt filter so that DBM can still effectively warn you to interrupt if you can, but further suppress spam if you cannot. The behavior of this filter can be controlled by a new dropdown in Global filters & Disable Options.

Uldir
  • Updated first 5 bosses of Uldir with normal mode data and fixes.
  • Updated many of the bosses from Mythic raid testing.
  • Updated Mythrax from heroic retesting
  • Updated Ghuun from heroic retesting

Antorus
  • Based on user feedback, DBM will now show which cannon is specifically next after an intermission on garathi worldbreaker instead of generic "special" timer on mythic difficulty

BfA Dungeons:
  • Added some new trash warnings to Shrine of the Storm
  • Added RP timer to last boss of shrine of the storm
  • Added RP timers to Ring event in Freehold
  • Added a new GTFO to freehold trash
  • Added full drycodes for all bosses in King's Rest. These are preliminary and not complete.
  • Added full drycodes for all bosses in Siege of Boralas. These are preliminary and not complete.
  • Added full drycodes for all bosses in Underrot. These are preliminary and not complete.

Brawlers
  • Updated more timers to use newer color bar by type and inline icon features.
  • Added full voice pack support to all special warnings

Bug Fixes:

Antorus
  • Fix varimathras taunt warning so it doesn't apply range filter if only using 2 tanks. That filter was only meant for 3 tank strat. Now, when only using 2 tanks it'll always warn you to taunt when other tank gets misery, even if that tank is not standing within 8 yards.
  • Fixed range frame for sargeras Rage on Argus to be 5 yards instead of 8 based on user feedback/testing.

BfA Dungeons:
  • Fixed some warning/timer bugs in Freehold
  • Fixed some timers in waycrest Manor
  • Fixed some timers in shrine of the storm.

Legion Dungeons:
  • Shortened overcharge timer in arcway based on user report.

Brawlers Guild
  • Fixed a bug where Match End would fire before it actually ended do to a new yell blizzard added to Bizmo. This bug caused berserk timer to cancel before match end and also some timers to continue after the real match end. Unfortunately bugfix required more localizing so the fix only works in loc [...]
