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.

    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

  • #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! 

  • #4400

    Version v4.0.0-beta51-13-gb5456a3 kills player and pet health bars. No error, just blank bars. Reverting to previous version for now.

  • #4399

    When summoning any of my shaman elementals they aren't showing up in the pet frame.  I know they used to, I'm not sure what changed but since even before the patch they aren't registering as pets or something.  

  • #4398

    This may seem like a dumb question, but several of the modules say the following:

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


    I'm not sure what this is or how to fix it.  Could someone enlighten me?  Thanks in advance!

  • #4397

    I just downloaded this and everything looks great, but somehow I can't see the player's headplates... I have tidyplates running too, so I tried to disable it and still can't see the enemies name plates...
