About BigWigs Bossmods

BigWigs is open source and development is done on GitHub. You can contribute code, localization, and report issues there: https://github.com/BigWigsMods/BigWigs

Introduction

BigWigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter.

Looking for functionality that BigWigs doesn't cover? Try these addons:
- LittleWigs is a plugin for BigWigs and covers all forms of 5 man and solo content.
- Capping covers various battleground and world PvP timers.
- oRA3 covers all sorts of raid management functionality including raid cooldowns and Battle Res counting.
- Old content can be installed by doing a search for BigWigs on Curse and installing the appropriate expansion addon.

Feedback

Please remember that we are always interested in hearing directly from you. About anything you want to share or ask. You may file tickets from our project page about anything or contact us on IRC in the #bigwigs channel on the irc.freenode.net server.

Our goals

When raiding, a high framerate is important. We understand that every extra frame matters, so BigWigs aims to be as efficient as possible. The memory/second and CPU/second footprint of BigWigs is the lowest of all boss mod addons.
When modules are written, every aspect of the encounter is inspected. Is add-on synchronisation required? Is target scanning required? What events are really needed?
We also aim to have the latest encounter scripts released ASAP; not long after the first few attempts of a brand new boss, we usually have a working encounter script for it.

Thanks to the wonderful WoW community for help with transcripts, translations, libraries, etc. This addon is powered by you.
