About PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

PitBull4 is a continuation of PitBull.

Differences from PitBull 3:

  • It's mostly done, but not entirely done thus why there are still only betas (despite this it is still very stable).
  • Documentation is written before functions
  • Much easier for third-party extensions.
  • Options will be much, much simpler. In 3.0, there's about 200 panels that you can mess with, it's overwhelming. I want to bring this down to somewhere around 10.
    • Layouts are defined deterministically and unit groups use the layout rather than ad-hoc layouts on a per-unit basis. This will make setting up your unit frames far, far easier.
    • Due to some decisions made, 4.0 is actually more configurable than 3.0. As a layout designer, you will have a lot more control over how things look. You can have different fonts on the same frame, different textures, more precise positioning, and a whole slough of other things.
  • CPU Efficiency will be taken much more seriously.
  • It uses Ace3 instead of Rock.

    After the last update this no longer works with the cooldowns addon, so i can no longer see the remaining time of buffs under my unit frame. Please fix this!

    are you going to update pitbul for WoD?

  • #4359

    Will you ever be adding boss frames for multiple boss targets?

  • #4360

    PitBull4 has had boss frames for quite some time! I tagged a beta (109 commits, yeesh) with boss/arena frame support, role grouping/filtering, and some WoD fixes

    Quote from transitbus »

    I mean multiple boss frames like how on protectors in SOO you have all three bosses show. SUF has them on the right and I am hoping PUF will have the same.

    Are there any other kind of boss frames? you can create a group and set the unit to boss and it'll show all the bosses

    I feel like years ago their was a forum intended for helping people tweak PitBull....anyways,
    I am kinda a noob when it comes to interpretting code, so I am having trouble when looking at the code for editing the experience bar text. 
    My goal is to just get it to show % values, while be on a vertical bar. Also is there a way to change those values to be listed one value per line vertically? Something like 

    til next level %

    rest %

    Whenever I cast Water Shield on myself while in combat, Pitbull freaks out and I get 100s of errors until I'm out of combat. Here is the error message :

    For some reason, on Beta, when at full HP, HP text does not display, unit must be under full HP for HP to be seen.

  • #4354

    Small bug: For Warlocks who have completed the Green Fire quest line, the burning embers do show up green on initial load, but after the first use PB reverts their appearances to the old orange flames.

  • #4355
    Quote from DarkLimpan »

    I have recently noticed that the green burning embers turns red when zoning into an instance. After some troubleshooting by moving the Interface and WTF folders out of the game folder back and forth a couple of times, I have found that it's got something to do with Pitbull4, as it does this even with default PB4 settings (while it works like it should without addons/fresh UI).

    Any ideas how to fix this?

     I mentioned this 3 weeks ago. Still not heard anything. :( I also mentioned it last wednesday on PB's wowace-page (link below to said comment post).

  • #4350

    Will this AddOn be updated for Warlords of Draenor? If yes, will it be updated for the Warlords of Draenor Beta? If yes, is there a build currently working on the Warlords of Draenor Beta? Thanks.

    Yes, Yes (when I get beta access should be soon), Not yet.  As always click on the Project Site link above to go to the wowace site where pre-release versions get posted. 

  • #4348

    So is there a hidden option to be able to scroll over buffs and debuffs and read what they are? I'm having touble getting something like that to work.

  • #4347

    please update for beta !
