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.

    I have what seems to be a unique problem. What I want to do is be able to "hide" my player and target frames when in a raid group. I see the option where you can hide party frames, but not player/target frames. I have spent hours trying to find a way to do this. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make that possible? to be clear, I am not talking about hiding the "blizzard frames" those are hidden. I want to hide my pitbull player frame and target frame only when in a raid group.

    I am unable to move stuff while in combat, and can't figure out how to move them while in config mode.  You should make the configuration of the mod simpler.

  • #4119

    The configuration mode is already simple. Click and drag, unless you've locked frames.

    Sounds more like a user issue...

  • #4116

    Ive seen an error with names in this version. for example ppl using names with strange symbols like "Über" will not show on the bars ? How is that ?

  • #4121

    It has everything to do with the font you are using.

    Not all fonts recognize ascii characters.

  • #4112

    Hi everyone.

    With the oldest versions we could modify each bar (portrait, buff*/debuff, icons etc.) independently from each other. :( now I can't find how to doing that..

    Thanks for help.

  • #4115

    You're not alone when it comes to missing debuff/buff edit-possibilites. Basically, this isn't an attractive UI anymore when it comes to dps/healers. Atleast not for Warlocks or SPriests. I REALLY hope they put it back in. DO EET.

  • #4114

    Hey, not sure you figured it out but I'll try to give a hand, since I finally got the hang of it!

    So, when you open the configuration window, you can see there the "Current layout".

    What you want to do, is to save your config for the layout you want to use, and then under Units you have to select the unit you made the layout for and finally, select the layout for it.

    Hope this helps, I think it's exactly what you asked for. ^^

    Is anyone else having problems with Raid 10/25/40 not showing up in edittor? I downloaded, installed and ran. So I don't know if I have to make the group somehow or what.

  • #4110

    <p>hey guys, i'm looking for a solution since the start of mop. i'm using the german client. i cannot see any pandaren player in my frames. everytime i only see the bars but neither i see the text inside or the buffs. this only happens when i target a pandaren player</p>

    Cannot cancel totems through the totem bar. Not sure if its a Blizzard issue or a Pitbull issue, but here's the meat of the error message:

    ID: 2
    Error occured in: AddOn: PitBull4_Totems
    Count: 1
    Message: Error: AddOn PitBull4_Totems attempted to call a forbidden function (DestroyTotem()) from a tainted execution path.

    By the look of it, Blizzard disabled the function to enable addons to destroy totems. Other similar plugins, like XPerl, get around it by using the default Blizzard totem frame. Pitbull should do this too.

    Are there plans to implant boss frames any time soon?

    And also: Being able to move the Shadow Orbs (and similar trackings) would be very nice.

    Being inundated with lots of errors about trying to "call protected functions" whist doing pet battles.
