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.

    Could you add an option to remove the PitBull icon from the minimap border? It never was there before and now there's no way to remove it.

  • #4414

    Am I the only one that has this? After the last update of Pitbull the boss power bar's are not showing anymore. How can they show again?

    Please give me an answer and lot's of others that ask the same question..

    Load on demand broken

    You can fix the load on demand problems by editing the file PitBull4/Options/Modules.lua:

    replace the function loadable around line 92 with this:

    local function loadable(info)
    local id = info[#info - 1]
    return IsAddOnLoadOnDemand('PitBull4_'

    And then a bit further down, around line 128, change to this:

    local id = info[#info - 1]
    local loadable = IsAddOnLoadOnDemand('PitBull4_' -- This line changed
    if not loadable then
        local reason = select(5, GetAddOnInfo('PitBull4_' -- This line inserted
        if reason then
            if reason == "DISABLED" then

    I will pass this on to the developers via a ticket; but for now you should be able to hack that one file if you need to.

    is there a way to get boss frames up on PitBull? I don't see an option for that...

  • #4407

    em...I don't know why I can't turn on DogTagTexts module.

    "The module can not be loaded:  Can only be loaded on demand".

    How can i open it? I really need to use it.

    Is there anyone can help me fix it?Thanks! :)

    To fix shadow orbs - go to the Pitbull4_ShadowOrbs folder and edit

    on line 12 you see:

    just change this to
    local PRIEST_BAR_NUM_ORBS = 3

    and it'll work

    Thank you... I owe you a beer. o/

    Owe you 2 beers!!

    My priest can now use shadow orbs again rather than combo points!! ;)



  • #4405

    Does anyone know if this is even being worked on?  I hopped over to the supposed offical thread for PB4 over at WOW Ace.  The last post (page 186) is dated 07-07-2013

    Edit:   I guess I had the wrong thread.  or actually the description of the addon above has the wrong thread.

    Here is the most current:

    Thanks for a great addon, hope you get it ready for 6.0.2 soon.

  • #4403

    Shadow Orbs dont work either. Im loading them but they dont appear under the indicators tab. 

    Please fix it :<

  • #4402

    Still no reply on the following problem for me:

    "The module can not be loaded:  Can only be loaded on demand"

    Love Pitbull, but without not being able to use the modules that say the message above, I really can't use it.  Again, sorry if I'm ignorant to Pitbull use, but if anyone could tell me how to load those modules and fix that message, I would be greatful.  Thanks!

  • #4401

    Everything works great except for the Shadow Orb Indicator. Im loading the Shadow Orbs and they dont appear under the Indicators' Tab nor on the unit, where I had placed them.. Please fix it!
