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.

    Been having a rather annoying problem lately...

    I've got pitbull all set up as i want. I've already logged out beforehand, so the settings are saved.

    However, whenever the game crashes, all pitbull settings are completely wiped out. The file in the 'savedvariables' folder goes from 190kb to 10kb. Why does this happen?
  • #1383
    See the FAQ:
  • #1375
    Would it be possible to tie in this add-on with Vuhdo / Healbot. Possibly asking these authors if they would be willing to make a cooperative function. If Pitbull is detected. Allowing them to hook. Giving Pitbull some very desired healing functions.

    What exactly are you looking for? If you want click casting use Clique.

    hello. i just wanted to know if there was any way i could remove my HOTs from visual heal? when i go to the visual heal tab, i can only choose to ahve it on or off.
  • #1381
    There's no configuration for this at this time. Open a ticket to request it.
  • #1372
    Hi guys, i have a question about pitbull unitframes. After I installed the addon, i have these weird numbers appearing on my screen, "54/91" for example, and when i join a party, 4 more sets of these numbers appear. I think each one is for one player in the group. How do you get rid of this?
  • #1374
    Can you provide a screen shot?

    It sounds like some of the texts like what would appear on a bar such as health amounts or power amounts, etc.

    You can go to your layout and disable texts one by one to find out which text is showing that you do not want to show.
  • #1370
    Hey, I just found out, that this mod doesn't show me Underwater Breathing, I have no clue when I'm going to run out of air. Any way you can implement this?
  • #1380
    There's an open ticket request for a mirror bar (that's what the bar that shows things like your underwater time is called) module. Just haven't gotten to it.

    How do i move my Tooltip thing? It's so annoying that it is in the middle of my screen... Please answer me quickly :D
  • #1379
    PB4 isn't positioning tooltips in the middle of the screen. It'll position tooltips shown when mousing over the unit frames near the unit frames. If you want to move them use one of the zillions of tooltip addons that are out there.

    You can find a list of some tooltip addons here:
  • #1361
    I'm not sure about how to do it in pitbull, but I use TipTac to customize position, size and have a lot of info on your tooltips. There is even a TipTac talent addon which will display the talents (51/20/0 format) in the tooltip as well. I love TipTac!
  • #1349
    This addon has potential, but it's too time consuming and confusing to set up. NONE of the UI boxes have any sort of label letting us know what they are. Very disorganized when you activate them.

    If there could be some way to label what the boxes actually are when they are unlocked (and hide the label when locked into place) this addon could give X-Perl a run for it's money.

    For those trying PitBull4 for X-Perl problems go here:

    This is the latest revision (that for some reason, maybe beta, isn't being linked to Curse). However at the top right hand side of that page you can download and install manually or via Curse Client for the latest revision.

    I'm not totally bashing PitBull4, I see the potential, and maybe after hours of tinkering I'd become aclimated to how it's layed out. I just currently prefer X-Perl because I have already spent hours and hours figuring it all out. So when X-Perl is working, it one of the best addons I have, next to QuestHelper and Altoholic.

    You seem to have missed config mode. When in config mode there are labels for any frames that aren't already being used by actual units.

    To get into config mode type:
    Choose solo (or whatever mode you need to config) from the Config mode drop down in the top left corner of the addon.

    I can imagine missing this would be confusing.
