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 cab't configure a 5 man party I'm trying to have bars across my screen not up and down. When I try configuration it goes to crap.

    Has this project been abandoned?

  • #3737

    The project is dead?

  • #3736

    Has this addon been abandoned? There have been no updates in 6 months, and none for ages if you only count real updates.

    Will we ever be able to config raid setup without being in one?

    Will there ever come Boss frames support?

  • #3734

    The alternate power bar does not work anymore for this. It shows up, but doesn't fill up or deplete anymore. It just stays empty.

    I've tried this @ darkmoon faire and Firelands.

    So PitBull 4 does not support export/import of individual profiles?

    EDIT: you can workaround this by adding a Pitbull4.lua file into the char-specific SavedVariables dir. So this char will have its new UI without messing the defaults.

    Is it anyway to just get the portrait to show? and how do i get it to look as the 11th screenshot?

  • #3723

    This has improved a lot! great to have grid style and not need another addon for everything else.

  • #3721

    Great Addon, enjoy using it and the customization etc, but I think it'd be a lot better if the Aura module had more customization. I have to have my unit frames rather large in order for the Aura's to be large enough to see stacks/durations on debuffs also. If I could manage the size of Auras seperately while they remain attached to the unit frame that would be excellent, also a choice of above or below :)

  • #3727

    You can customize all of that with auras. 

    Layout Editor > Select the frame you want to adjust > Aura > Buff Layout >

    Icon Size/Icon Size for my auras to change the actual size of the buffs

    Start At > to attach to a different area of the frame

    Growth Direction > to change which way the icons fill out 

    Same thing with Layout Editor > Select the frame you want to adjust > Aura > Debuff Layout

    And there's also  Layout Editor > Select the frame you want to adjust > Aura > Texts where you can make changes to the size etc of text releated to the de/buff icons.

    Pet frames?

    Just started Pitbull, and loving how much I can customize it.  I have it almost exactly as I want it, there any way to have it stop showing pet frames?  Sorry if it's been answered already, but there are 214 pages of comments to search through.
