Simple Interrupt Announce

Simple Interrupt Announce (SIA) is a World of Warcraft addon that aims to be
a relatively simple and efficient, yet flexible interrupt announcer. The main
use of such an addon is to help coordinate interrupts in raids.
SIA stores settings for how to announce interrupts based on your grouping
status. So you can have separate settings for when you are solo, in an
instance group, party, or raid.
For each of these four statuses, SIA can announce your own interrupts, and
those of other people/pets in your party/raid.
Announcing is based on modes, which decide what channel the announcement goes
to. They can be: off, self, say, instance, party, and raid.
The default settings are:
status own other ------------------------- solo self N/A instance self self party self self raid say self
So, when you are playing solo, you will get your own interrupts announced to
yourself, and not see others. When in an instance group or party, your own
interrupts and other peoples interrupts will be announced to yourself. When
in a raid, your own interrupts will be announced in say, and you will see
other peoples interrupts announced to yourself.
Own covers interrupts made by you or your pet, other covers interrupts made
by any player or pet in your party/raid.
Instance groups are groups/raids created by the instance finder (LFD/LFR/etc.)
SIA can optionally play a sound when announcing. In the configuration panel
you can select one of the default sounds, or you can add your own custom sound
files to Interface/AddOns/SimpleInterruptAnnounce with one of these names:
sound1.mp3, sound2.mp3, sound1.ogg, sound2.ogg.
You can enable and disable announcing with
/sia on /sia off
You can use
to see what the modes are for that status. And
/sia <status> [own [other]]
to set the mode for own and other interrupts respectively.
For switching modes in macros, a special compact syntax is supported; an
exclamation mark followed by eight characters, two (own and other) for each
of the four statuses. Each character can be: o = off, m = self, s = say,
i = instance, p = party, r = raid. If a character is not one of these, the
corresponding mode is not changed.
Here are a few examples:
/sia party - print current party modes /sia solo self - when solo, own interrupts to yourself /sia raid say self - when raid, own to say, others to self /sia !mommmmsm - set default modes
