Damage Meters in Patch 2.4, One Week Later

This is just a very short round-up of where the different damage meters are today in terms of parch 2.4 compatibility, not an in-depth benchmark.
I ran a very quick solo hunter test, here are the results:

  • Damage Meters in patch 2.4Assessment: Not updated yet, the author said he was working on it.
  • DamageMeters: Author has abandoned the project, a new maintainer might pick it up
  • Recap: Up and running (tested r66903)
  • Recount: Up, unfortunately the latest beta I picked up appears to be stuck in test mode. Undoubtedly, this should be fixed with the next revision (tested r67044).
  • SW Stats: Up and running. The pet settings appears to be broken in the sense that you get the data as a hover tooltip, but not as a separate bar yet (tested v2.2.0)
  • Violation: Up and running (tested r669621)

The data recorded by all three fully functional addons was consistent through and through, but this wasn’t a full test, just a “let’s look what works” sortie.

In related matters, for Combat Text Scrollers, SCT and MSBT have been updated for 2.4. The author of Parrot is currently very busy with DogTag 3.0, Rock and PitBull (several revisions going up per day), since Rock in particular is the bedrock on which all his addons are built, expect Parrot to come when he’s satisfied with the state of the three current focus projects.

    On violation there is this nasty bug or something. As i join a group/raid/bg it spams that something is increased to 200 yds. and it doesnt stop :S

    That would be the combat log range. 200 yards is the maximum distance used to synch combat data (also the recommended range for WWS). Regarding the bug, the violation team currently appears to update 3-4 times a day, so it can be fixed any time.

    Given the recent combat log changes, I don’t believe any of the meters is wholly accurate yet as they are all still getting their arms around pretty significant changes. To be fair, you should allow another week or two for all the kinks to get worked out. This change to the log system is as significant as the secure frame changes back in 2.0 and those took weeks to get straight. The end result is that logs should be much more accurate (particularly in groups) but we aren’t quite to the point where these addons are ready for primetime.

    @sid67: the purpose of this post was more to look at who’s doing what than talking about accuracy, however, if you check my next post on the matter, you will find that progress is amazingly swift.
