About Bazooka

Bazooka is a Data Broker Display similar in functionality and looks to FuBar.

Feature highlights

  • Top/Bottom alignment or free moving of bars.
  • Left-click drag moves, alt-right-click drag resizes the bar (unless the frames are locked).
  • Drag-and-drop plugin placement with highlighted drop positions.
  • Configurable background / font / icon size.
  • The usual options for data broker displays (show text/icon/label, optionally show title in place of label if it's missing).
  • Support of iconCoords and icon[RGB] (TomTom arrow, for example).
  • Left / Center-Left / Center / Center-Right / Right placement position for plugins within bars, allowing easy layout of plugins. Plugins placed in the Center area are centered as a bunch.
  • Optional auto-fade while in combat / out of combat.
  • Optionally disable mouse / tooltips.
  • Optional simple tooltips (just show title if Alt is held while moving the mouse pointer over the plugin).
  • Optional highlight on mouseover for the active plugin.
  • Load-on-demand configuration options, small memory footprint for "standard" operation.
  • Bulk mode configuration that allows configuring multiple bars/plugins easily.
  • Restrict plugin text width
  • Disable minimap icons
  • Tooltip scale override
  • Support for OnMouseWheel, OnReceiveDrag and OnDoubleClick script handlers for plugins
  • Optionally override plugin defined text colors

Usage

Getting started

  • Create new bars from the main options window
  • Drag plugins to desired location
  • Drag plugins off bars to disable them
  • Dragging bars while holding Alt will change their attached/detached state. Otherwise top/bottom bars will snap back to top or bottom depending on where you drop them.

Using the bulk configuration (standard method)

  1. Uncheck Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Check Apply next to the settings you want to change, and set them to the value you need.
  4. Click Apply at the bottom of the options. The changes you selected will be applied to all selected bars/plugins at this point.

Using the bulk configuration (auto-apply method)

  1. Check Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Change the settings (or click the Apply text next to them if their current value is the one you want). The changes will be applied immediately to all selected bars/plugins.

    How do you turn off all the mini-map icons? With Fubar I had to use a mod called Broker2Fubar and I could turn off all mini-map icons that way. But with both Bazooka and Chocolate (Bazooka is much nicer) I have the same issue with icons and broker2fubar no longer lets me turn off these icons.

    Hello,

    I've added support for disabling LibDBIcon (that is responsible for most of the minimap icons). It's drycoded (not tested) but you can try it out if you download the latest alpha from wowace.

    cheers,

    Just found that wonderful addon today, glad to replace my aging Fubar. One thing I'm missing in this one that I had in the other is the location/coords. Is that something that exists somewhere else so I can easily import?

    thx

    Oh, and also the time! So used to being able to read what time it is on the bar... :)

    Hi,

    I use Broker_uClock (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/broker-uclock.aspx) for the clock. I used to have a location mod, too, but I can't seem to find it now ;)
    I'll drop a note when I come across it again...

    cheers,

    Would there be a way to make the FuBar - LocationFu to work with your addon?

    Check out http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/travelagent.aspx too.

    Well, yes, there's Fubar2Broker, but it's not a long term solution.

    TomTom has a zone/coords feed and there's Broker_Location (both are up on wowinterface.com), try those.

    cheers,

    Hello. I recently switched from fubar, and am just wondering if there is a small fps addon i can use with bazooka. thanks
  • #87
    Hi,

    Try http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/stat-block_fps.aspx. It hasn't been updated, but I guess it works fine (if you change the version number to 40000 or enable out-of-date addons).

    cheers,

    Just switched to this addon (as Fubar is out) and I like it. My only issue is that I have yet to find a control to scale tooltips or change their font size. Is there any such option available?

    Other than that, thanks for your work. :)
  • #85
    Hi,

    Tooltips are handled by the default GameTooltip or by the plugins themselves, Bazooka has no control over that. You can get most of the tooltips the way you like by installing a tooltip addon such as TipTop which let you customize the default tooltip.

    cheers,

    Installed bazooka today after seeing fubar won't be updated again.
    i seems to have lose a lot of fps, how can i find out which addon done this working with bazooka ?
  • #82
    Try disabling all broker addons (so that only Bazooka's own icon is shown on the bar, a nuke like thing), then add the broker plugins one by one and check your fps, that's the surest way of doing it.

    cheers,

    Hi, New to Bazooka and reasonably new to data broker, after installing I have found some some broker addons replicate on the bar and on the main window (broker uclock, companions for example) This maybe a nub question but how do I disable them off the screen and have them on the bar only?
