Quartz, a new casting bar mod (was "eCasting Bar issues")
My eCasting bar says that it's incompatible. I have downloaded all the versions out there and can't seem to find one that works. I have even disabled all my add-ons to see which one it's incompatible with but I cant find it. I would also be willing to use another casting bar but I cant seem to find anything :-(.
Edit: See Quartz below for a superior alternative.

Reason: Reflecting useful derail.
What bugs are there? I haven't noticed much in my week of using Quartz. Such a greaaaaaat castbar replacement.
The modular cast bar for focus is a great use too. I was tanking the other day and had my main healer on focus so I had a much easier view (versus unitFrame castbars) of when he was healing me, so I knew when a healthstone/pot was necessary.

Something to do with tradeskills went buggy for me the other day, but apart from that it's one of the smoothest introductions to a mod I've seen yet. I tried it out the first day I found it and disabled eCB immediately.
Not quite sure if this is a bug, but it's definitely a feature that I'm missing from having used eCB for a very long time and trying out Quartz tonight. If you target yourself with a heal, you will see both a "target" bar and a "player" bar. Previously with eCB, you would only see the "player" bar and the mod was coded to hide the "target" bar in cases where you were healing yourself.
Just spent a good 10 minutes looking through both mods trying to find an option in either one associated to this feature, but it appears eCB put it in as an author's preference with no way to modify it directly, and Quartz has decided to forgo implementing it entirely.
Seeing two bars when you heal yourself is definitely providing a distraction to me so far, hopefully I will get used to it. Am I missing some configuration option in Quartz to change this?
I agree, this must be one of the most usefull addons I ever used. I never thought addons could actually improve DPS, but this addon has shown it is possible, and by quite a large amount as well. The only problem I'm occuring at the moment is me watching my castbar closely more than watching the actual surroundings - but I guess that's just something to get used to.
