I wrote a helper-addon for Windower for Beastmasters to help track Ready charges and ready moves.

Can get here:
https://github.com/SammehFFXI/FFXIAddons/blob/master/PetCharges/petcharges.lua

A quick video of it's usage. Please note the ready moves listed automatically (upper right hand corner) and the # of charges - count down till next charge available.

Green = ready move available
White = need more charges

1.4 released - supports the saving / moving around of the text chat box. Hold ctrl+click a couple pixels to the right of the box; drag it where you want then do a //petcharges save

This is a nice little AddOn but I've run across one issue. I have 10 second ready cast through merits, jp, items. It seems everything is set up right in the .lua yet the timers are 1 second ahead of the game timer. So the AddOn says you have a charge but the really you have 1 more second to wait.

I'm not sure if hitting ready when a charge isn't actually up messes up the counting more or not. But I have seen the counter get a few seconds off the longer a fight goes. It's not lag or pc issues so I'm wondering if I just don't have something set right.

merits = 5
jobpoint = 5

equip_reduction = 0 <-- since later down in the lua it adds in the legs/axe

Put the folder in the Windower Addons folder and then you can manually load it with //lua load namegoeshere.lua

Create a folder called petcharges and save the files there - then do //lua load petcharges

To auto load edit your (windowerDirectory)\scripts\init.txt file and type 'lua load petcharges' in there.

DistancePlus is at the same git repo above just go up a folder and look for 'DistancePlus' - I wrote that one too. There's some other fantastic add-ons I've written on there as well.

I noticed that too. The add on time is 1 second ahead of the game timer. Easy to compensate, but i did notice it.

Text boxes you have to position your mouse slightly to the right of the box to grab it for some reason. Always been this way. I've had issues on high dpi scaling (on my Surfacebook) and high res displays. Your mileage may vary.

Well - last but not least, manually edit the data\settings.xml file x/y coords are in the <pos> section. Just //lua r petcharges when done editing.

Think you can just add 2*(***that's already there) to any line that is merits = self.merits.sic_recast

Can you clarify please..? what is 2*(whit that's already there).

Also what should the "equip_reduction = ?" be? -5?

Thank you

Did you happen to figure out what this meant and where to edit this info?
