LFG Timer

Customizable tooltip frame

Ever wonder how long you've been sitting in an LFG or PvP queue?

    • Not stuck to the minimap
  • Movable customizable text frame
    • Show any (or none) of the available queue types
    • Limit what data is show for each queue type
      • Number of party members for each role found
      • Estimated wait time for each of the roles (and you)
    • Use your favorite font
    • Use your favorite background and border textures

This addon supports the following queue types:

  • Looking for Dungeon
    • Random Heroic/Normal Dungeon
    • Specific Heroic/Normal Dungeon
  • Raid Finder
  • Scenarios
  • Looking for Raid
    • Want to raid with people on your realm?
    • Looking for people to obliterate Molten Core?
    • Note: This queue type is only enabled for the Blizzard Queue Status frame
  • PvP
    • Battlegrounds
    • Arena (Season and Skirmish)
  • World PvP
    • Wintergrasp
    • Tol Barad

    @shinchih2001: Go

    Currently, no. How are you wanting to change its size? Do you want to:

    • Specify an exact width/height.
    • Specify a scale factor.
      • This has wonky effects on fonts and textures.
    • Hide certain elements.

    may i change the windows-"search status clone"- size??

  • Avatar of Maxion Maxion Mar 24, 2010 at 07:09 UTC - 0 likes

    I like how the new version shows how long the queues are currently for the different roles, but could you add an option to make the window hide while not in a queue?

    Thanks.

    Just so you're aware ( don't know if you're on the PTR or not ), blizzard has implemented a "time in queue" now for the LFG button.

    There are a few questions that I'm coming across while working on a frame for the timer.

    Should I clone the search status window? Should I make my own?

    So far, I've made my own. I'm considering making 2 frames (on demand) and showing the appropriate frame based on a config entry.

    Any thoughts on how I should tackle this?

  • Avatar of LightsfuryUther LightsfuryUther Feb 09, 2010 at 06:59 UTC - 0 likes

    I noticed while testing a few of the built-in localized strings that if you use a font that is too large, it can wipe the whole line clean. I also tested increasing the size of the FontString, but all I did was scramble the search status window.

    Edit: The text is set at 25 pixels tall. At a 12-point font, you can get 2 lines of text and anything larger than 14-point will truncate the second line.
