About X-Perl UnitFrames

Bug Reporting

Please use the Ticketing System on WoWAce Here and avoid posting bugs using comments on Curse because they're difficult to track and they will probably get lost.

Use a good error catcher (like BugSack from files.wowace.com) and provide the full error text, and give as much information as possible to recreate the problem. Don't assume We know what you're talking about with some three word report.

Introduction

Perl, with Extra stuff. Much enchanced from Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with little remaining of the original Nymbia code.

  • Range Finder (combined with optional health check and/or debuff check) for all frames based on spell or item range test.
  • HoT Monitor will highlight units clearly that have ''your own'' active Heal over Time spells. Regardless of how many other heal over time buffs are on the raid members, you can keep track of your own ones and when they expire.
  • Debuff Highlighting in standard debuff colours on all friendly frames. Priority given to show debuffs that ''you'' can cure first.
  • Raid Frames, buff icons, MT list units and some other portions or X-Perl are Created on demand. Saving a lot of time and memory at system startup. Defering the creation of many parts of X-Perl to when they are actually required. And of course, most often outside of raids they are never required and are never created.
  • Raid Target icon support for Target, Target's Target, MT Targets.
  • Raid Tooltip will show combat rezzers available (druids with Rebirth ready (or very soon available) and any normal rezzers out of combat) if you bring up tooltip of a dead person.
  • In-combat indicators for all units.
  • 3D Portraits for player, pet, target, focus, party. Optional. Of course this may degrade your framerate somewhat because you are displaying more 3D character models that without this option. But some like it pretty, and it does look cool.
  • Red and Green combat flashes for frames when player, pet, target, party, partypets, raid take damage/heals. Useful indication of things happening.
  • Added '''time left''' on party member/target buffs/debuffs when in a raid, these depend somewhat on CTRA sending appropriate information over the addon channel, although some of it can be determined at run time by X-Perl, when a player gets a buff for example, we know how long it should last, and therefor when it should expire.
  • Totally new options window including all X-Perl options and access via minimap icon and the /xperl splash command.
  • Configurable colours for borders and backgrounds. Including class coloured names, and configurable reaction colours.

Much care has been taken with code size, memory load, memory usage per cycle and so on. LuaProfiler/OnEvent mods used extensively and regularly to ensure that X-Perl does not do more work than is absolutely necessary.

Assists View

Will show anyone from raid assising you with your target, and can also show healers or all plus known enemies targetting you.

Tooltips for the same also available (on player and target frames) if you prefer to not use the main window.

MT Targets

Replaces CTRA MT Targets window, and doubles as a replacement for the Perl RaidFrames warrior targets.

Indicator shows which target you are on.

Frames will be coloured to show if tanks have duplicate targets.

Casting Monitor

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Shows selected classes (defaults to healer classes) in a list (much like the MT List), but with some differences.

Shows mana bars and cast bars on left. Their targets on right. Health bar as normal, but a secondary small red bar on targets which shows the maximum single hit this unit has received since entering combat. The secondary bar will extend downwards from their current HP level down to as far as zero.

A green name on the targets indicates this is the same target that you have. You can click on casters or their targets as expected.

For druids, right clicking on a caster will cast Innervate on them.

For shamans, right clicking on a caster will cast Mana Tide Totem. Check the * indicator to see if they're in your group.

All bars can be re-sized in X-Perl main options (Monitor section).

Totals can be toggled (from the 'T' minibutton at top of frame) which gives overview of raid mana status.

Raid Admin

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Save/Load raid roster setups Only does direct save and load for the moment, but more to come (templates and such).

Item Check

Replacement for /raitem /radur /raresist /rareg. Use the old commands before, or drop items in the left item list.

Query button will perform /raitem on all ticked items (query always includes dur and resists) and you can then view and review all the results whenever, without having to re-query each item.

Includes everyone in raid, so you don't have to work out who doesn't have items, it'll list them with 0 instead of no entry.

Active Scanner to check raid member's equipment for the item selected. So you can be sure that people actually have the item worn (Onyxia Cloak for example), without having to go round single target inspecting everyone who 'forgot' to install CTRA for the 50th raid in a row.

Grim Reaper

Removed from X-Perl, but continues as it's own standalone Ace mod.

[http://www.wowace.com/projects/grim-reaper/]

More Buffing Features

Can be found in my new universal buffing mod, ZOMGBuffs

[http://www.wowace.com/projects/zomgbuffs/]

3.7.5 Release (r860/r859)
1.You can now disable pvp marks on the frames.
2.TTT Frame, FocusTarget and PetTarget Debuffs are now enabled and disabled correctly.
3.You can now enable Target's Target Debuffs independently from its Buffs.

    currently using this, is there any way to get it show frames for all the bosses in a council type fight? e.g. Stone Guard or the trolls in ToT - i know there in the default blizz frames, but they don't do what i need them to!

    Sadly, like the Arena frames, this special BOSS/important target frame needed someone can coding for X-Perl, but it's not so we have only the Blizzard's default one. :(

    So I've got a question. I used this add-on a few months ago, before I went on a brief hiatus, and I swear that there was a function to animate the health bars, as in give the textures a bit of a "flowing" animation. Am I just imagining this, or was there something like that, and I just can't find it?

    Flowing animation, you mean bar fading?

    Active your X-Perl Option UI, in the Global tab, a option named "Fading Bars" do that, enable it and see if it is you needed or not?

    Nah, that's not it. I had it enabled, and I still don't see the effect. It's kind of hard to explain, the health bars look like they're filled with liquid, I guess. I may have just been imagining it.

    This sound like the textures of bar, I'm not sure the defaults come from X-Perl has that but you may needed check the bar texture option in the option UI and if not found then try some addons like SharedMedia...(maybe needed the libSharedMedia-3.0 for using those textures but maybe not.)

    I'm not quite so sure. I never had anything like that installed the last time I played. I've tried re-installing it multiple times and have agonized over every checkbox, so the only conclusion that I can come to is that I'm delusional.

    Really love this addon.  I've been using it since vanilla.

     

    Just a very small question about the display of a mob's HP

    I notice that the unitframe can only hold up to a display such as 600.4M/800.2M (3 digit million with a decimal digit)

    I haven't seen a mob yet that has 1billion HP yet, but will it show up as something like 1000.3M/100...(the last part getting cut off due to unitframe space)  or is it set to show up as 1.0G/1.0G (for 1 billion HP using SI suffixes)

    Extend your frame width to increase the showing space for such long strings, but yes, in one day we needed bigger suffixes and for some locales strings about it. :p

    I think it will show 1000.3M

    Re: Warsong Gulch Flag Carriers frames vanished

    Hi,

    I have noticed that the frames of both alliance/horde flag carriers in WSG are missing (for targetting, health, etc,etc) . Is there a way to activate it or it has not been implemented yet?

    thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: X-Perl UnitFrames Ugrent help!

    Hello,

    Ive just tried Xperl, and I have to say its a fantastic addon to have. Well, I am still trying to configure it to my best preference, however I ran into some issues where i do not know how to go about. Anyone who is able to help me out please do, I do not want to trouble the developers for small options.

    1. Is there an option that allows me to change the missing health of my health bar black, or to at least a different color? Because I am having a little trouble noticing the health lost portion of my health bar since its translucent, i want to manually change the color to my liking.
    2. In a 10man raid, I would rather have 2 large Party frames rather than 1 party frame and 2 small raid frames. So, is there an option for the addon to detect that Im in a raid group of 10 people and changes the raid frames into 2 separate 5ppl party frames.
    3. In arena 3v3, I would like the addon to detect that Im in an arena, and also show the party frame of the end team, "something like gladius" but the xperl frames for the enemy team.

    If xperl is not able to do this, does anyone know any other addon that is able to meet my needs? Thank you very much in advance!! =)

    1.  In the X-Perl option UI, every frames' own configurion has a option named "Values" for showing Health/Mana values on that frame, do you ever check the option UI?Also, you can change the bar color on the Colors tab of option UI.

    EDIT: I were misunderstoood what you mean, sorry.  I don't think can change that color of "missing" part of health/mana bar but you may try the options in the Colors tab and see if there has something which you wanted...

    2. No such things in X-Perl, only a party frame can show with your current 5-man team as Party mode, or you can disable Party frame in Raid and the 2 small raid frames still remain on screen. If you want 2 of party frames I guess X-Perl is not for that when it based on Blizzard one's design. And I don't know what addon can do such things like showing raid team frames as "Party" frames... :(

    3.Due Zeksie didn't do something on that and leak of supporters knows X-Perl's coding and PvP on X-Perl, PvP functions like Arena frame do not implemented to X-Perl since beginning, so it never awared you're in Arena and do nothing but as usual. Maybe you needed some addons for Arena functions. Again due I never do PvP shit so I don't know what's addons is you want...

    I got this bug in a raid right after X-Perl r458 was released.

    Message: Interface\AddOns\XPerl_RaidFrames\XPerl_Raid.lua:585: attempt to index local 'self' (a number value)

  • #7611

    Before last patch and the update to X-Perl with it, I was able to right click any of the raid frames to see any of those normal options you'd see when right clicking someone's portrait after targetting them.

    I am now however, unable to do that with my x-perl raid frames, nothing from right click at all. Is there a way we can bring that back somehow?

    ALSO Whenever I play my Priest, it seems that checking the Prayer of Mending tracker option in the global page is something I have to do every single time I log on, it just never stays set.
