Bar Swap Feedback  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 34.18
by: KnightofOsiris [More]
ABOUT

Bar Swap Feedback provides a visual notification next to the combat reticle (with an optional audio sound effect) when switching between your two ability bars.

The add-on was originally written for myself and a few friends, but I have received requests to make it more widely available.

OPTIONS

The notification can be changed in design, animation and size.

It can also be placed to the right (default), left or centred on the reticule sliders then allow the notification to be positioned.

Each of the two bars can be set independently with a different colour and optional sound effect.

Re: No Fade

Hoping to push an API update soon, and I do want to look into options regarding alternate sides, some fresh options for notifications, and, I'm thinking, a numeric readout attached to the reticle for the current bar.

Unfortunately, I don't have a computer that can run ESO (or pretty much anything) at the moment, so can't implement and test anything new.

Despite the main rig being a fairly newish machine (built it Dec 2019), it can run the old Windows 10 19.09 edition (and earlier) fine, but anything from 20.04 onwards the Windows UI randomly hangs, requiring a hard reset. Nothing is reported in the Event Log ether.

Windows itself isn't crashing (no blue screens), as an example, watching a stream the video will freeze, but the audio keeps playing and you can't interact with anything on the screen -- although the mouse pointer still moves around.

I've wiped and installed fresh copies of 20.04, 20H2 and currently 21H1, with the same results -- so it isn't something connected to upgrading or 3rd party app conflicts. It happens with just Windows. Go back to 19.09 and the problem goes away, but then Windows updates itself to 21H1 and the problem comes right back.

Currently testing the video card on my old i7 2600K board, and so far there are no issues with it running with 21H1 on that old board (10 years old now). Might be an issue with my X570 motherboard. Ran MemTest86 on my RAM got 0 errors and a pass.

Until I can resolve this issue, any enhancements are going to have to wait.

Just wanted to let you all know that your requests are not being ignored.

Sorry.

No Fade

Agreed with the no-fade option. It would be nice to see a constant visual of what bar I have up.

+1 for this! It would be great if the addon left the '1' or '2' somewhere on the UI after selection. Currently, I use an additional addon for that.

Thanks for a terrific addon!

I've definitely considered that option of 1 and 2 on alternate sides as something I might like myself, as well as the option to use different glyphs for people that use one bar for DPS the other for Healing.

The main problem right now is time. This last year has been crazy for a lot of us and 2021 isn't looking like it's calming down. Haven't been able to play much since December. :-/

Unfortunately, due to real-life commitments right now, various projects, I don't have much time to look at this option. The bar swap currently triggers the game's animation system to play one of the built-in animations. Not saying it's impossible, it might be possible to have the pulse run indefinitely, just that the people who originally got me to write this wanted it to show and go away. :-)

Two alternative addons that might be more what you're looking for. One is called SwitchBar II (https://esoui.com/downloads/info1235...arII.html#info), the other (although it doesn't look like it's been updated in a while) is called What Bar Am I On (https://esoui.com/downloads/info1667...mIOn.html#info). I used to use that second one myself before I got the idea for this one from using Votan's fishing addon.

I'm glad you find it useful.

Side note: your title 'Great Minds' made me chuckle a little bit. Back when I was playing WoW, what with all the mounts that game has too, I used to have an addon to randomly summon a favourite. I'd been thinking of writing one like that for ESO, then I found Favorite Mount. :-)

Thank you for reporting this.

I don't know what might be causing this, I haven't experienced it myself or had any other reports of this.

One thing you could try, if you right-click on any addon in Minion you should see an option to 'Delete Saved Variables'. If you do that while the game **is not** running that option will delete all your settings and effectively reset that addon to a fresh install state the next time the game is started. This would at least tell you if the settings were somehow corrupted causing the issue.

The only other thing I can think of right now would be an add-on interaction, although I'm not sure what might be the issue there either.

Knowing for sure that you've bar swapped without having to take your eyes of the center of the screen is a big help in these situations. Thanks!
Thank you for the compliment.

This was exactly the reason I wanted to create it. My wife, who runs Trails and Dungeons as a healer with our main guild, felt the same way. :-)

Sorry, I didn't get a reply to you earlier, life has been happening lately.

To answer your question: I'm sorry to have to say, the API does not permit playback of any audio files outside of what the game provides. In addition, it only allows us to use what is provided in terms of sounds for the default UI interactions (so no access to NPC dialogue either).
