Bundled with G910xmit AddOn version 1.15

Mac 4.2     3 Mar 18

Instead of a brief white flash, action bar lights how rapidly blink on and off when a spell becomes ready.

The duration of the flashing lights is user-selectable from none (0.01 sec) to 5 seconds or more. Default is 1 second.

     Note: flashing will not be interrupted if/when the action slot goes back on cooldown, so using 1 to 3 seconds is best.

When not in Override LGS color mode, the reset button (and /g910r from AddOn) will attempt to restore the LGS color scheme.

Tested in the Legion Beta; ready for action in the new expansion!

Blizzard’s transition to Metal graphics API forced a change to this app’s “do not sleep” code.

The v1.3 AddOn changes made it possible to now dramatically shrink the size of the AddOn display.

No longer warn about possible screen size changes, because most of the time it was something else.

Added out-of-control check for action bar lights (should not turn “dark” while on a taxi, as intended).

Using the AddOn commands that change color profile will correctly do nothing if “Override LGS profile” is off.

Updated calibration feedback messages in main window.

​

​

Mac 1.3      30 Apr 16

Eliminates gradual darkening of your LGS lighting profile after many animations.

Two programmable color profiles can be toggled from inside of WoW.

Imposes color profile on keyboard whenever WoW switches to the foreground.

Added call to also close help window if it’s open when main window is closed

​

​

Mac 0.92      31 Dec 15

Alpha version of spell cooldown tracking (hooray!)

What it does:

What this version does not do (until enough people tell me they care):

Shows advisory message in WoW if AddOn is run on a non-Mac system

Skips “spec changed” animation just after logging in

Accelerated some binary operations

​

​

Mac 0.91      20 Dec 15

Eliminated crash when Mac is forced to sleep

Displays the version number as reported by the LogiLED library (rather than just the bundle version number)

Optimized behavior of the main scroll view

Added Talent Spec Change LED animation

Added Ready Check LED animation

Added blinking enter key when you get a WoW (pink) or Battle.net (blue) whisper

        Enter key will stop blinking when you:

            Reply to a battle.net whisper, or

            Experience another event (e.g. combat) which is animated by WoW G910

Added “lights out” mode for pre-rendered cinematics (cancel by moving your character)

        Previously this only worked for cinematics using the in-game engine
