    Through all of the errors that people have stated, it's working like a charm for me. I like this little addon! Keep up the great work.

    This chi bar has the same problem that every other one i tried has. When a blackout kick or rising sun kick gets parried the bar doesn't instantly refund the chi like the blizz bar does. According to the addon's chi bar it will appear to it that you are down 2 chi when in realizty you are not. Is there a way to fix this?

  • #42

    Hi,

    Sorry for answering so late. Yeah, there may be a fix to it. I'll have to check whether Blizz has an addon-event, which is more "reactive". I'm gonna go in for a closer look.

    I had to uninstall the bar... loved it but it caused me to not get a res window while I was in combat and then after fighting a rare I wasn't able to loot until I reloaded the ui via /console reloadui... I have since uninstalled it and would like to have this fixed.  Also notice that my fight with Taran Zhu the meter went away until I uninstalled it.

    Hi,

    I'm a little bit perplexed that you encountered such a bunch of errors.
    First of all: Are you sure these problems are caused by ChiBar?
    It could be caused by incorrect behavior by other Addons.
    ChiBar don't interact with the Rezz-Window. Also I'm not quite sure which meter you mean.
    If you mean the Hatred-Bar/Meter? Well ChiBar interacts with this UI-part neither.

    It would be interesting whether your problems persists, because I can't reporduce your problems. :(
    I'll have a look at the problem. Maybe I'll find a problem in the code, if it exists.

    I'm afraid I'm able to help you in the moment but thank you very much for your report,

    I love the yin and yang chi bar ..... but could you please PLEASE add an energy bar / mana bar (depending on spec) that we can adjust the size and location,  I do NOT want to get rid of this addon but I need an energy bar that I can make HUGE and place right under my character.  It helps me manage my rotation much easier.

     

    thanks so much

    Np, thanks for the response :)

  • #35

    Hey Mokchu,

    I thought about that quite a while now and I'm sorry to say, that I won't implement such a feature in the near future. I honestly don't have the time for such a bunch of work and and an energy-/manabar is quite a lot of programming. I'm very sorry to disappoint you, but I don't the resources for that.

    The problem is not the UnitPower()-function. The problem is the amount of work I'll have to do, if I programm the mana/energy-bar, because it would be another customizable ui-frame. The work is needed for the new ui-element, not for the correct or clever use of the WoW-api.

    Spielstein

    What's interesting is that the mana and energy are both UnitPower depending on which is available to you.  Using CLCInfo, i  have a bar that show the value of UnitPower("player") and it even dynamically updates between energy and mana on a feral druid going into and out of cat form.

    great addon i love it but i can't for the life of me figure out how to move the damn thing lol

     

  • #33

    Well, now that's an interesting question ^^
    You can move ChiBar by going into the options (type /cb in the chat).
    In the Options you click on the Button "Unlock".
    A white transparent square will now be shown. Click on that und move ChiBar around.
    If you're finished, click in "Lock"-button on the top of the screen.
    GG
    I hope i could help, Spielstein

    Is there any way you can make this be on top of everything else? I'm using pitbull and have enemy portraits turned on and I want this basically on top of that like my combo points are for my rogue, but when I move the chibar up there, they hide in front of the frame, but behind the portrait.

  • #31

    Should be in with the next update.
    Please report any bug you may find. ^^
