Files Updated: Wed, Oct 14 2009 Supports Game Version: 3.2.0
Recount is a graphical damage meter written by Cryect. Recount
(Preservation) is an attempt to preserve it through the 2.4 patch and
fix up some minor things along the way. If Cryect returns the project
really should be wholely his and he can keep or abandon any changes
I've made here.
For changes see the change log. Beta versions can be found on WoWAce.
Q: I don't see Recount after installing, what to do? A:
/recount show, then /recount resetpos. If this doesn't help delete all
(there are more than one) Recount.lua files in your WTF directory.
Q: I don't see details when I click the recount bar, how to fix? A: /recount resetpos
Q: I don't see my pets, totems, gargoyles, guardians, Why? A:
Check the config window (cogwheel icon, or /recount config) and uncheck
"merge pets w/ owners" to see details about pets, totems or any entity
that is treated as pet or guardian.
Q: Can you add effective heals to Recount? A: Everything
that Recount displays as healing is what other addons call "effective
healing". I.e. numbers that you see displayed as healing never contain
the overhealing component.
Q: I have a question about DPS... A: DPS is a poor
measure, don't expect extensive discussion on the topics. You will find
it already at numerous places. I only fix bugs regarding recording
data, but don't plan to ever touch the DPS formula otherwise.
Q: Can you add absorption as separate display or to be counted as heals? A:
No, the combat log doesn't report which spell, or which spell-caster
caused an absorption so this is currently impossible. There are however
ways to guess this information. A separate module called
RecountGuessedAbsorbs is available that adds a display mode for guessed
absorbs to recount.
Q: I have asked a question before and got no answer. I demand an answer! A:
I cannot answer everything, I answer per time, capacity and ease to
answer. I take everything I read into consideration but don't expect
that everything can get an answer.
