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 The PVP mods are already out of date and missing some of newer BG stuff.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 [...]

DBM 7.3.29/30 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Sat May 05, 2018 10:38 pm

New Features:

Core:
  • Added new filter option to global disables & filters that allows users to specifically block only special warning text and general sounds but still allow voice pack sounds through.

Uldir
  • Updated Taloc the Corrupted mod with all data from Heroic Testing
  • Updated Fetid Devourer mod with all data from Heroic Testing
  • Updated Mythrax mod with all data from Heroic Testing
  • Updated Zul mod with all data from Heroic Testing
  • Full mod drycode for G'huun testing.
  • Updated Zek'vhozj mod from latest heroic data. (7.3.30)
  • Updated G'huun mod from latest heroic data (p1 and p2 only, p3 no one reached in testing. P3 stuff got improvements to drycode though). (7.3.30)

Antorus
  • Added tank stack tracking to infoframe on Argus for those that use strats that don't simply taunt at 3, 2, 2, 2, etc This also helps on Mythic P3 as well if 5, 5, 5 doesn't go as planned, etc..
  • Added new options to Coven that allow RAID LEADER to change interrupt behavior between 3 person, 4 person and 5 person. In addition, added a 2nd option that lets raid leader also specify first cast of encounter as not counting in said rotation. This feature will only sync if everyone is running this version of DBM (or newer). Out of date mods will do old behavior regardless of RL setup.
  • Added new option to emphasize boss switch for tanks, when Assume Command is cast on Antoran High Command

Changes

Antorus
  • Changed soulbomb general target announce on Argus to no longer have target filter applied to it, since it is a priority spell that entire raid should be aware of even if they aren't primary target.
  • Changed switch warning for boss rotation on coven to be a level 3 warning (highest emphasis) instead of level 1 warning, to ensure boss rotations don't get drowned out by other encounter events.

Bug Fixes:

DBM-Core
  • Fixed another bug that could cause spammed lua errors with range check frame in BfA beta.

DBM 7.3.27/28 Released

Postby MysticalOS » Fri Apr 06, 2018 12:17 am

New Features:

Core:
  • Updated some map check functions to be compatible with 8.x map api changes.
  • Updated UnitDebuff/UnitBuff api calls for 8.x api changes

Uldir
  • Synced boss names and dungeon/encounter IDs with latest alpha build
  • Added full mod drycode for Zek’voz, Herald of N’zoth
  • Added full mod drycode for Taloc the Corrupted
  • Added full mod drycode for MOTHER (7.3.28)
  • Updated Vectis mod with all data from Heroic Testing (7.3.28)
  • Added full mod drycode for Mythrax
  • Added full mod drycode for Zul

Antorus:
  • Add auto pre special warning for rage/fear soon to Mythic Argus. it will also auto toggle range finder before rages go out and auto hide it after they go out (if you aren’t affected by rage). It won’t run at all for tanks
  • Added a nameplate helper to Aggramar that will show 1 of 4 icons over nameplates of embers based on energy of ember. Green for 1-30. Yellow For 30-60. Red for 60-90 and meaner skull/red for 90-100 for "gonna boom soon". These icons don't currently display actual energy numbers since DBM still only has very basic nameplate icon functionality and not nameplate text features. If kui/tidyplates ever add support for energy based tracking/callbacks to display numbers though that's something DBM could invest time in supporting.

Kul Tiras
  • Preliminary support added for 3 world bosses in Kul Tiras. Combat detection and auto loading is a go. Actual warnings not yet added.

5 man Dungeons
  • Added warnings/timers for all bosses in Waycrest Manor
  • Added warnings/timers for all bosses in Shrine of the Storm. Also added a few preliminary trash warnings.
  • Added warnings/timers for all bosses in Tol Dagor

Changes:

Core:
  • Reverted/cleaned up some of DBMs async compatible code since async take 2 (introduced in 8.x alpha) is quite different and no longer withholds spellname on GetSpellInfo requests (instead it withholds spell description, which DBM never uses outside of DBM-GUI).
  • Reclassify target switches as role warnings not other target warnings. Target warnings generally means events affecting other players, while switch warnings are warnings for a role (dps or tank) to swap to a new non player target. (Option sorting in GUI is also sorted by classification so this just means target switch warnings will now appear under "role" announce options.)

Uldir
  • Renamed "Blood of Ghuun" drycode to "Vectis"

Antorus
  • **For time being, the more advanced prediction on Aggramar has been disabled on mythic do to bugs where aggramar [...]
