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.

Slash commands

/bazooka
Open configuration.
/bazooka locked
Toggle locked/unlocked state.
/bazooka hidebars
Make the bars hidden. If no bar numbers are specified, then it works on the marked bars (see bar options).
/bazooka showbars
Make the bars visible. If no bar numbers are specified, then it works on the marked bars (see bar options).
/bazooka togglebars
Toggle hidden/visible state of bars. If no bar numbers are specified, then it works on the marked bars (see bar options).

    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.

    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?
  • #80
    Hello,

    My guess would be you have some other broker display installed besides bazooka (like Fortress). Try disabling all addons but Bazooka and Broker_uClock and check if it's still duplicate.

    cheers,

    Awesome; thanks for the prompt reply.. its was slcore that was the 'other' display, I just hadn't realised it was enabled, thankyou very much for the solution.

    Is there a way to make bartender4 shift up if Bazooka has a bottom bar?
  • #77
    Hello,

    I don't think there is any such support in Bartender, but you can move the bars freely. Just move them to a good position, and save the position under a separate profile (if you sometime have and sometimes don't have bottom bars in Bazooka).

    cheers,

    Can somebody please give me an idea how I get things like xp, durability, faction rep, etc onto the bars (as in, where do I get the plugins from, what do I look for)
    I am used to FuBar and Titan, this is a bit strange to me, having nothing really useful by default.
    Cheers

    Hello,

    I've updated the addon description to list various sites where you can find LDB plugins.

    cheers,

    Hi,

    Could you open a ticket about it? Maybe I'll get around doing it in the near future.
    My only issue with it is that it complicates the config even more... Then the next request will be individual font setting etc, etc... It has to stop somewhere :)

    Anyway, if the ticket gets some upvotes, I'll add this one.

    cheers,

    Since of today for some reason Bazooke won´t load most of the times when i log on, i have to relog a few times and be lucky for it to load, anyone else got some problems with it?
  • #70
    bump, for some reason Bazooka still works randomly, sometimes it wont load and sometimes it will... i´ve noticed a higher rate of success when im not in Dalaran at peak hours, but it can just as well refuse to load when im in Shattrath.
  • #71
    Hi,

    Do you have some sort of bug-grabbing addon installed? Do you get any sort of errors when Bazooka doesn't load? (I think you can turn on error reporting from the default blizz menu as weel).

    Also, please try disabling all other addons except for Bazooka, and check if it still doesn't load that way. Might be some bad interaction with some other addon...

    thanks,
    mitch

    Also try to delete your Addons/Bazooka folder and reinstall, could be some corrupted files or somesuch, too.

    cheers,
