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.

    hello. i have been using pitbull since ~BC  and i like the flexibility of it. The most annoying problem i have with it,  is...  that sometimes it is very hard to leave a raid :) the way i usually do it is right click (mine set to ctrl+alt+shift+right) to my player frame and choose leave raid.  but when the raid composition changes, the dropdown menu disappears. that means if players keep leaving or joining rapidly,  like in lfr, or these new Tanaan rare groupss. i try to click the leave raid option before the dropdown menu disappears for like a minute,  then i am fed up, and just paste /script LeaveParty(); in my chat :)

    After saying that I finally hcange curse to upload beta >.< loooks like that fixed my font problome now I just need to find out why it have MT on my water pet.

  • #4575

    Blame Blizzard for the MT on the Water Elemental.  I have no idea why but the UnitCreatureFamily("pet") returns "MT - Water Elemental".  You can see this for yourself:

    /dump UnitCreatureFamily("pet")

    Went to try out frost and my pet has MT - Water Elemental on the mana bar I know it normaly says just Water Elemental but since the last last patch messing up the text and name and still doing that the MT part is now messing up everyone and I don't see how you can turn that off if even can. It shows up on the pet, target and tool tip so I can't think it just this add on but it does take up like most of the mana and still goes out of the bar.

    Is anyone still working on this addon? No comments or ticket updates that I can see.

  • #4573

    NOpe looks like we have another dead one

  • #4567

    I cannot figure out for the life of me how to enable the assist icon. I have leader icon selected, and it shows who has leader, but nothing for assist. Someone please help. =D

  • #4566

    In configuration mode, when i choose Raid, it also shows Party. But when i try to configure Party it only shows Party. I'm actually a bit afraid of trying it out in raids if it will also show party frame in there.

    Also, I cannot change the width and hight of my party and raid frames. They don't appear under Units.

    Hey im heaving a problem with my Totem display. When i want to dismiss my totem by rightklicking blizzard wont let me to this blocked function bla bla whatever, we all know this. I tried a script macro to destroy my totem "  /script DestroyTotem(1);  " it won't let me do this either. script is blocking bla bla blizzard ui only.... bullsh't. So i wanted to disable the totems and now i have no display of my totems at all. Do i oversee an option where i can enable the blizzard totembar after disabled the pitbull one?

    Or a suggestion for another addon that let me destroy/dismiss my totem?

    thanks a lot,

    I'm having two issues:
    I can't uncheck gaps for missing pets for party and raid pets.
    Whenever I switch the strata to either background or low, my buffs won't stop blinking. Disabling weapon enchants under aura -> display seems to alleviate the problem, but they still blink when a buff goes away or a new one appears—not all the time like before.

    So this has been happening for a while, apologies in advance for not posting as soon as it started so that it would be easy to figure out exactly which version "broke" it. =(

    I have my buffs/debuffs showing on my player portrait, and now whenever I log in or /reloadui with existing buffs the little spiral cooldown timer doesn't work or show up. For example, Mark of the Wild on my Druid. If I log in with this buff already on, it'll show up with an accurate duration, but the faded pie timer thing just won't appear or start counting down. If I cancel the buff and reapply it, or simply cast it again to refresh it, the pie timer fader thingie will appear and start counting down as expected, but that's the only way to make it work.

    This happens on every single alt, for every single buff that has a timer. Mark on my Druid, Poisons on my Rogue, Shouts on my Warrior, etc.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to detach bars from the unit frames? I keep my player UF in the top left corner of the screen, and I'd like my cast bar to be centered and a lot larger. If not, is it possible to keep dual unit frames? If it is, I guess I could just keep two separate player frames, one in the top left corner and without a cast bar, and one centered and click-through that is ONLY the cast bar.
