Global Cooldown (GCD) Bar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2

Required libraries: LibStub, LibAddonMenu

Description:

Another Andy.s inspired addon! I'm beginning to sense a theme here...

This addon adds a bar to your screen that shows the remaining time on your global cooldown after doing anything that affects it. This allows you to get a better idea of when your game is ready to take the next action input, even when you may not be able to see your character's animation clearly.

To make it clear, this addon does not track cast times or channel times, only the global cooldown.

To see the basic functionality, take a look at Andy's original version in his video (it's the red bar in the bottom center).

There is also an option to enable the Action Bar GCD animations that the game already has, but doesn't seem to include a setting for (other than a slash command). There are also options for size/position/color of the bar obviously. When it's unlocked, moving it can sometimes be a little weird, but it works trust me, just keep clicking. I swear. It definitely works. Usually.

Version 2.1:
  • API bump for Greymoor

Version 2.1:
  • Fixed an issue where the bar would not work if you had necro siphon as the first ability on your bar
  • Smoothed bar animation
  • Temporarily removed the fast settings

Version 1.2:
  • Changed how resizing works, can now resize any dimension individually
  • Advanced fast GCD option added
  • Reverse bar option added
  • Bar timing more consistent now (thanks Andy!)

Version 1.1:
  • Added 'fast GCD' option to simulate a 900ms GCD

Thank you! I went and looked at the GCDBarUI lua I'd backed up a couple of months back and I see that I added a line to set the alpha of that part to 0. I completely forgot I'd done that.

I do not see the bar at all for light attack timing which is what I was looking for.

This addon conflicts with LUI combat module. If you have LUI loaded, GCB will not function.

This addon does not work at all. There is a rectangle, but it does nothing.

By the way, some skills that changed cast time, like Lethal Arrow, are not working properly anymore.

3. Update the duration of some skills that changed after patch, for example, Lethal Arrow.
Bar size can already be adjusted, when unlocked you can drag any edge or corner to change the dimensions. Not sure if I'll add automatic anchoring, but there will be better tracking in the update that will be coming out soon.

This is generally caused the LUI's Combat Info module, as it conflicts. If you have that enabled, disable it and see if it works.

If you need any info about my other addons that might conflict with this addon or just any info in general, let me know.
