Now Bison use the same method like other addons by hijacking the Blizzard buff and debuff elements. So the cancel buff works well on these version.

I loved the addon SurgeTrack, but its dead. So I start my own surge bar :). I can not play all classes, so I inserted a limited count of temporary buffs. Blizzard show some of these as auras around the avatar. You can enable the spell id's on the buff bar, to find the id's of missing buffs (I need your help).

knowing addons with modules hiding buff frames
You should deactive the option for hiding Blizzard Buff/Debuff frames.

  • Pitbull4 - Module "Hide Blizzard frames" (option 'Buff/Debuff')
  • X-Perl - Module "Player Buffs" (folder 'Player' subframe 'Player Buffs' on top right)
  • ShadowedUnitFrames - Module "Hide Blizzard" (option "hide buff frames", at last "/console reloadui")

    is it possible to add an option to make the buffs/debuffs expand to the right, and not to the left (default). I have been trying to find an addon that does this and I can't find one.
  • #177
    Change the horizontal space to a negative value.
  • #171
    Hi,
    two small feature requests:
    1. add a font shadow to the duration of buffs for better readability (should be easy)
    2. add an option to include weapon buffs in the main buff bar.
    Thanks!
  • #170
    I've tried adding spells to progs bar so I use it like a filger. But it refuses to show spells such as Living Bomb, Combustion etc. Is there a way to add these so I can keep track of my dots and stuff.
  • #169
    any update on the bug with the buffs randomly resizing? wud love this problem to be fixed as it gets a bit annoying trying to guess wot buffs i have when i need to know info quickly etc.
    keep up the great work. love this addon!
  • #168
    Been missing my Buffalo and Surgetrack functionality ever since they broke. Found this addon in a random search for buff mods, and wuhoooo! so happy :)
    As a suggestion, I would really love it if I could make my debuffs to grow vertically again.
    eg.
    5 6
    3 4
    1 2
    Keep up the good work!

    For some reason my bison keeps on making the icons bigger and whenever I buff or something it goes small again for a bit timer before it goes big again .. Its starting to annoy me alot cause the buffs overlap eachother which make it kinda hard to see what ya got and so on.
  • #165
    I'm having the exact same problem. Also bison somehow is using "Consolidate buffs" every time I relog, even though I do not have the option checked in interface options. So everytime I log in I have to go into interface options, check the "Consolidate buffs" box and then uncheck it again.
  • #166
    same for both here and its really annoying :( pls fix this
  • #163
    Need some help...

    Can't get the timer to show, second i can't to to use buttonfacade for it. Its checked but nothing change.
    Thanks
  • #161
    Any chance of implementing a way to reverse the growth of any of the button panels. For instance, I prefer for my debuff frame to grow left for the first line, then up to a second line. I believe this option was available in the original Buffalo, it would be great to implement into this.
  • #167
    Check -1 under horizontal space.
  • #160
    Bison is currently not saving options for me. It's disabled on log in, clicking enable in options actually has no immediate effect but if you first enable it, then uncheck button lock it jumps to the correct position (from when it worked properly), recheck button lock and it's working fine for the session. Any idea what's going on?
  • #162
    Can probably ignore this now, I removed both the addon folder and the settings file and reinstalled it and it seems fine now.
  • #158
    Currently having a large issue which I have narrowed down to Bison. I have been getting some massive GPU lag during raid combat in ICC due in some part to Bison. The problem disappeared immediately and permanently when Bison was disabled. With Bison running, as a poor sort of work around, reloading the UI while in combat alleviates the problem temporarily (until combat ends and the next combat starts). After a UI reload, the GPU slowdown is fixed, but the buffs from Bison are no longer skinned. The fact that the ButtonFacade skin is not applied during an in combat reload, and the problem immediately returns upon dropping combat, I am lead to believe the problem is somehow related to Bison's interaction with ButtonFacade. I tried locating the option to deactivate ButtonFacade but the skin still loads even while the "Enable LBF" is unchecked and a complete game exit. I will try a full reinstall of the mod to see if that changes anything.
