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.

    Still having a problem where changing the strata to 'background' or 'low' is making auras blink.

    raid group size problem

    Trying to make a raid frame setup, and for whatever reason when i make a group, and filter it to be a specific raid group, one of the 5 unit frames will be a completely different scale to the other 4, and have different layout settings

    Show empty Slots

    Hey there, great addon, thanks for the awesome work! :)

    I use this Addon for all my Unitframes but I got one problem. When in a raid it does not show the empty slots within a group when the groups are being sorted like for archimonde who goes into the portal etc. e.g. they put 3 ppl in one grp and leave the rest of the grp-slots empty, Pitbull just fills them up so that I always have to take a look @ blizzard's ui to know who is in wich group, because of Pitbull not showing empty slots inbetween the groups. Is there any way to set it so that empty group slots within a raid are being shown and noticeable?

    Thanks a lot!

  • #4578

    ohh i see the not full groups,  so it is doable.  i think i made separate pitbull groups for every raid group. G1 with filtered only to show Group #1 , and so on. place all in a tile pattern i like, and ready.

  • #4576

    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")

  • #4570

    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.

  • #4571

  • #4572

    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.
