About Elkano's BuffBars

EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features. It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings. EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor. After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

    Satrina Buff Frames is also good, but you need to dig a bit in the config to make it look like EBB.
  • #1419
    Even after commenting out line 733, Elkanos now kills my frame rate. Enabling it instantly takes my FPS from 60 to 15 or so, and a bunch of my other addons no longer function properly.
  • #1418
    Agree with eveyone else; would love to see an update... Satria's buff frames just is not the same as Elkano's. Thanks for the great work on this.
  • #1414
    Still works for me in 4.0.1, but I can't click off buffs anymore, very annoying. I'm also currently using recount, omen, pitbull, grid, dbm, sexy maps, skinner, dominos, epgp, power aura classic, sct and probably one or two I'm forgetting.
  • #1415
    Apparently the can't click off buffs thing is a Blizzard bug, or change, not sure which. I've heard scattered reports about it. So it may not be an issue with Elkano's Bars, but with Blizzard.
  • #1413
    i deleted line 733 of "ElkBuffBars.lua" and now it seems to work again :)
  • #1417
    For those of us who don't have any idea which line in that file could possibly be this elusive "line 733", look for Baps comment a couple days ago on October 12th. (One page over from here, currently.) Instead of deleting it, he suggests replacing it, and that worked for me.
  • #1411
    PLEASE UPDATE!!! I love this addon and need it badly. Also for some reason this messes up my Grid addon as /grid doesn't work when i have this addon turned on. Its only this addon that does it.
  • #1409
    I hope to god Elk has the time to update this mod, or someone else picks it up and updates it. QQ
  • #1407
    After the patch I have a problem when I walk, ride, or fly, my screen is jerky. About every second, it stops for a few ms. All other addons are disabled except this one. I love this addon if there is anything you can do with it..

    Thanks.

    Help and activate the LUA Error Messenger, after that deactivate it and close the LUA Error Window, now the lags are gone.
  • #1406
    While you are working on an update, would you kindly add in a LDB data feed too? Just for quickly opening the config menu. :)
  • #1403
    Apparently addons canceling buffs has been removed. Buffs are now considered protected. They are working on a way to fix this, but it doesn't look good. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=27189091160&postId=271554074480&sid=1#4
  • #1404
    The more I look around it's looking like this addon will only be able to display buff status but you won't be able to cancel buffs anymore, except through the BlizzardUI.
  • #1408
    Not really. They added a secureheader method. Addon authors just need to reconfigure their addons to handle that. Hopefully no functionality will be lost.
