About Simple Chi

A simple and lightweight Chi display that shows how many charges you have.

To move the display boxes, Alt+drag the leftmost box.

Slash command: /sc

/sc color - Opens a window to let you change color of the chi frame.
/sc scale <number> - Sets the scale of the frame. Numbers between 0.5 and 3 are recommended. Sample usage: /sc scale 1.5
/sc nocombat on|off - Whether the boxes should be shown outside combat or not.
/sc hidedefault on|off - Whether the default blizzard chi frame should be hidden or not.
/sc reset - Resets the addon settings back to the default. Useful if you for example accidentally dragged the frame outside the screen.

    This chi bar has the same problem that every other one i tried has. When a blackout kick or rising sun kick gets parried the bar doesn't instantly refund the chi like the blizz bar does. According to the addon's chi bar it will appear to it that you are down 2 chi when in realizty you are not. Is there a way to fix this?

  • #32

    Sadly there is no easy way to fix this, since the error is on blizzard's side, all the chi displayed is from information in the game client and not from scanning the combat log.

    There is simply no way to counter this that wouldn't be very CPU heavy and something that would cause incorrect chi values in other circumstances. Sadly, you'll just have to bear with it.

    This is an excellent mod and does exactly what I wanted it to do.  I downloaded after a two second search for something for my monk alt i didn't plan on taking seriously.  After a half hour of running 5 mans I wound up changing the combo point mod that I've been using on my feral druid main since burning crusade!  Absolutely beautiful and clean add-on with no overbearing extras. Here's a shot of how I'm using it.  

     

    Great job, Great mod, love what you've done.  Thanks for the hard work!

    I agree. This works.

    KISS -- Keep It Simple Stupid

    Less is MORE.

    Exactly what I was looking for. I used 2 other addons today for this and they do not compare. Wish I cuold of saved myself some time and found this first.

  • #29

    Thank you for your comment, glad you like it!

  • #25

    This doesn't seem to be working anymore for 5.1. The bar shows but it's always empty, no matter how many Chi I have.

    Any idea?

  • #26

    I recently uploaded a new version (v1.1) which should be working for 5.1.

  • #27

    Thank you very much and keep up the good work! I personally love this addon and I would've hated to switch to something else. :)

  • #24

    Love this addon so much, please keep it up!

  • #23

    So awesome and simple, thanks man I hope you'll maintain it :)

  • #21

    If you are having problems with the addon creating many new clones of itself, please try version 1.0f and see if it has helped.

  • #19

    It appears that the Simple Chi (v1.0e) bar clones itself and stacks ontop of itself. The opacity of empty Chi boxes increases with every clone until it is almost impossible to discern between a full and empty Chi box. Reloading UI clears the clones, but it's annoying to have to do so every so often. Any chance this could be fixed? I really like the addon!

    When are the clones spawning? Do you do anything special when it happens, and it it duing some special action? (Like on loading screens, entering combat,  and so on?)

  • #22

    Thanks for the quick response. I'm not sure exactly when it clones itself, because I would only notice when there were so many clones that it was difficult to discern between a full and an empty Chi box. I suspect it clones itself whenever I get into combat. I just tried version 1.0f and I've had no issues with cloning while doing my dailies so far. Thanks again!

    More errors with v1.0c, now also in combat.
