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

    just updated it again, with the same results/error ;(
  • #444
    The fxi would have rather been to change the 2.1 in the FuBarPlugin file back to 2.0 :/

    Well, the latest commit should pack a fixed version of FBP again so things should be fine again :)

    Out of curiosity, how do you decide whether to change your add-on code or the code of a library you're leveraging as a dependency? I would have assumed you were a consumer of the library so the library would be treated as an unchangeable entity and you would modify your code. Am I misunderstanding the relationship between ElkBuffBars.lua and FuBarPlugin? If this isn't the right place to ask this question, please let me know and I'll take this to private messages or to another forum as needed.
  • #445
    How do we get to the latest commit?

    "The most recent development version of EBB is available directly from the wowace SVN via http://files.wowace.com/ElkBuffBars/ElkBuffBars.zip"

    That's the old site, having been away for a while I don't know where to get files from the new one.
  • #443
    The fix is to change FuBarPlugin-2.0 to FuBarPlugin-2.1 on line 41 of ElkBuffBars.lua because the FuBarPlugin now registers itself with AceLibrary using a newer major version.
  • #442
    Yep, same here
  • #440
    Working fine until today, soon as I installed new beta I see default blizzard buff frames and these errors:

    For a while now I've been seeing internal error messages from EBB like this one:

    Elkano's BuffBars: [EBB] ERROR: 1 - Champion of the Kirin Tor - -10130.171000 / 0.000000

    This seems to happen with nearly every possible buff/debuff and does so frequently. I've already deleted the svar twice.
  • #436
    this output is mainly for debug if something went wrong. But I think with seeing the negative number here (which should have been impossible), I have found the bug causing it. I used a call to max(a, b) which worked for me but it seems like some other addon was defining it. The correct call ist math.max(a, b). So hopefully the latests beta won't throw that message anymore.

    Thanks for the fix. One other question I have is how to make the buffs for a vehicle show up.
