Updated 2/8/11
Changes -
* Removed Saber Dance set/flags
* Removed unnecessary variables
* Cleaned up some stuff that wasn't being used
* Eliminated the reliance on Yugl-Include.xml (only need the new Byrth-Include.xml (it has the same functions as before)
* Dropped down the number of TP sets and removed the left/right cycling option because it was no longer beneficial.
* Eliminated some triggers.

Here it is!
( File Name ) : ( URL )
* Autoexec.xml: http://pastebin.com/imjiMqjC -- goes in ../Windower/plugins/autoexec/
* Byrth-Include.xml: http://pastebin.com/xCekMuPZ -- goes in ../Windower/plugins/spellcast
* Name_DNC.xml: http://pastebin.com/FPUnWtq8 -- goes in ../Windower/plugins/spellcast

You need to use Autoexec and Spellcast to use this xml. Download them each, make "spellcast" and "autoexec" folders in the ../Windower/plugins/ directory, and add "load Autoexec" and "load Spellcast" commands to your ../Windower/scripts/init.txt

You will need to download the three files linked above and change them to xmls. They default to downloading as text documents, last I checked. To convert them (way anyone can do):
* Open one in Notepad
* Open another empty document in Notepad
* Copy from the one you downloaded to the new document
* Save the new document (to the appropriate folder) using the name that you want (like "Byrth-Include.xml") and after change the file type (below the name) from "Text Document" to "All Flies".
* Repeat for the other two files

These are my rules for DNC. For some reason it won't do anything pertaining to NFR. I can't figure out why :/ Line 205 is NFR.

Should definitely be three words. Have you tried turning on debug and using NFR to identify the issue?

Not really a functional point but <action type=""/> is a depreciated rule, you can just use <changespell spell=""/> etc.

I dunno then, this is my NFR section and it works like a charm.
Code xml
<if spell="Violent Flourish|No Foot Rise">
	<equip when="precast">
		<body>Etoile Casaque +2</body>
	</equip>
	<equip when="aftercast" set="$GearType" />

Just here to give props to Byrth for providing this spellcast. I've been using for a week or two now and it is truly great. Just wanted to say thank you for your contributions to all the badass DNCs out there, we owe you one!

I'm very reluctant to get an xml for my dnc cuz I just love how busy the job keeps me with all the different sets and macros. The only 2 things I wouldn't mind being handled is swapping to Etoile Tights +2 for SD and swapping from Idle set to Engaged set to Idle set.

Now if I were to make a very basic xml to support my current system, I'd have to add your SD entry from the autoexec and whenever SD is over/dropped, it'd swap back into my previous Engaged set (be that TP set with Thaumas, Hybrid Eva or even my Idle set, whatever was last used / is appropriate for when SD actually wears off), correct?

I hope this isn't too poorly phrases. My question is, if I were to start an xml of that sort, what would I need beyond my sets (Idle, TP, Hybrid Eva, (Full Eva for future content), PDT, MDT?
Would I have to go all out on spellcast to use ws sets or could I still use .txt ws macros? Or would the xml always swap me right back into my tp set before the ws could go off?

Depending on how fancy you make your SC, it won't really take away the business of the job, lol. Unless you have like 2-3 macros for each ability. I kept all my old macros on WHM, just took off the gearswaps, and nothing really changed when I started using XMLs, lol.

The only thing I think I have to figure out (get a grasp on for myself, really) is how spellcast determines whether I wanna use a stacked or unstacked ws. Guess I'll try to figure that out by reading Byrth's xml. Which, by the way, looks amazing. Kudos for putting that up there for all of you, man.

Can I copy and paste that whole section for checking for climactic and replace the climactic part with Sneak Attack? And if I can, do I need to add a variable line or is just having the

And if I wanted to add a rule about Sneak Attack, could I just copy and paste that buff check for Climcatic, rename it into Sneak Attack? I think I'd then have to add a Sneak Attack variable, right?

No, as long as it's a recognized buff you're golden.

Pseudocode

if spell=myWS
if buffactive="myStackingBuff1|myStackingBuff2"
equip when='precast' set=myBuffSet
else
equip when='precast' set=myBuffDownSet
/if


in this case myStackignBuff1 could be Climactic Flourish, 2 could be Sneak Attack.

Okay, this is what I came up with. I'm not entirely sure about the whole else or elseif and when to close with /if, so I'd appreciate the feedback.
I split the sets up further to an unstacked one, an SA set (not using Charis Tiara +2) and Rudra's set.
Code
		<if spell="Rudra's Storm">
			<if buffactive="Sneak Attack">
				<equip when="precast"" set="SA Rudra"/>
			</elseif>
			<elseif buffactive="Climactic Flourish">
				<equip when="precast"" set="Climactic Rudra"/>
			</elseif>
			<elseif> 
			<equip when="precast"" set="Rudra">
		</if>

You have some tag confusion, but this should fix it.

Thanks a ton, Byrth. I know I do. Is there an easy way for you to put into words why else is at the end? I'm guessing Is buff A or elseif buff B use set A or B - or else, if no buff, use set C?
Prolyl sounds dumb to you, but spelling it out like this helps me get a better grasp on it. Tried reading the tutorial on the windower page and it just made me wanna curl up in a ball and cry ^^;

If Buffactive = Sneak Attack
* Equip this set
If Buffactive was not Sneak Attack but is Climactic Flourish
* Equip this set
If Buffactive was not Sneak Attack or Climactic Flourish
* Equip this set

So this would be the same as using these conditionals (not functional code, just examples):
Code
<if BuffActive="Sneak Attack">
<if mode="AND" Buffactive="Climactic Flourish" notBuffActive="Sneak Attack">
<if mode="AND" NotBuffActive="Sneak Attack" notBuffActive="Climactic Flourish">


It's easier and more intuitive to say <if> <elseif> <else>, and it cuts down on the amount of work your computer has to do (because if BuffActive=Sneak Attack is true it doesn't even have to read the Elseif or Else).

It's sad how you can just pop that out in no time and make me understand it when like 30min+ of head scratching got me nowhere. Appreciate all your good work on here and I know many, many other lurkers do, too.

The DNC.xml and the Includes go in your Spellcast folder and the AutoExec goes in the AutoExec.xml in the AutoExec folder. I forget if there's already an existing AutoExec.xml but if there isn't, just make a new xml and paste Byrth's rules in it. Then just //load autoexec or add "load autoexec" to your init.

Hope it works!

Updated the OP with my current version.

It does not work with Windower 4.0's Spellcast, but probably will in the future.

What's up with this error when I try to load the xml for my DNC? I have both of those XMLs for Spellcast in Spellcast and the AutoExec one where it belongs, but this just happens.

"Error: line 0" typically means that the Include files aren't present/named properly.

Name it like the OP. I bolded the names to make them more obvious. "Name" in this case is your character's name.
