    Thanks for your positive feedback! :D
    I coded something, which should work.
    The new version should be approved by Curse soon.
    Report bugs in the new version, if you find any. ;)


  • #26

    Should be fixed with the next release. Thanks for the report. ^^


  • #25

    Thank you thank you thank you!

    With a little testing I've noticed that the bar has been reapearing sometimes, especially when I zone into dungeons/bg's, and when I leave Org to go to Durotar. That might be a CRZ issue but I cant check cause my monk is only level 30.

    Since updating the addon I'm having an issue where it shows that I have chi built up when I dont have any. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me?

    I didn't have the problem in my raid wednesday.
    Did you try to reset the addon? Or the tip i gave at comment 16?
    At last try to clean the whole addon off your wow-installation und download it again.

    Sorry for not helping you further, but I'm not at home the weekend.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that SPELL_POWER_LIGHT_FORCE was changed to SPELL_POWER_CHI, so you'll need to update for that.

  • #20

    Hey there,

    thanks for the info :D

  • #15

    I love this, makes looking at my chi SO much easier!

    It might be a bug with another one of my addons but every time I log out, or reload or anything, my chibar gets huge and i have to resize it EVERY time, its just rather annoying, any ideas?

  • #16

    Well, I don't have this problem on my monk.
    Try to delete your ChiBar.lua and ChiBar.bak in the folder
    .../World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/REALM/CHARACTER/

    After deleting these two files, start your WoW. Maybe it'll help.


  • #18

    Glad to hear :)

  • #17

    Whatever it was, it went away with the last update.

  • #13

    Any chance you will be adding a option to change the color of the chi?

  • #14

    I'm working on it right now. Stay tuned! I try to get that done the next days. :)

    Nice addon does exactly what it says on the tin. Good use of graphics too, good job.

    Couple of suggestiions,

    1) make the default icons smaller - first time users would likely be put off but massive icons, then allow scroll bar to enlarge/make smaller.

    2) have the empty icons have graphics options too. I'd prefer empty/semi transparent circles rather than the harsh white blobs we have at present.

  • #12

    Thanks :D, positive feedback is always nice ^^

    to 1) I think that's something I'm going to do in the next update.

    to 2) On the one hand it's a simple change of the actual texturefiles or the adding of a new texture. I got a new texture from a curseuser, which ich add to the set soon but I'm still waiting for some new texture from a friend of mine. I'm not really that good at graphics :/
    The graphic options for the empty circles is still a idea in mind, that I try to implement, when I got enough time.
