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.

    No, you're just not "found" it...and it was not show the revision number unless the commit log still not removed for the changelog...but I think someone always removed the commit log after he put release...

    Only the 3.6.0 one has because I just didn't changed the default commit log when "tagged" as release...

    Now, for some reasons, someone does want using his versioning method and just overrided + deleted my 3.6.1a release commit with his 3.6.11(it tagged commit is r777) , and I tired to fix this problem, sorry...sometimes the log may not shows the revision number because I didn't want to force him to do this, just do a release... I'm sure it cause confusing like yours, sorry about this.

    EDIT: I edited the 3.6.11 release download's log, it should listed the revision number about the filename and ingame showing. I guess I will do this when a release version tagged...

    I always read the "damn changelog" before I download. And I can't match the version numbers in the changelog to the file versions in "Other Downloads" or in the "Newest File" line. So I always click on the newest version in "Other Downloads" to verify the version number in the file offered against the changelog.

    Easy, isn't it? If I had to do that for every addon I use, I wouldn't get to play WoW Tongue out

  • #7242

    Why can't you just use Curse Client and let it do the file managing work for you?

  • #7239

    Im having a little problem with my Monk's UI setup. I'm using the addon "SimpleChi" to keep track of my chi, therefor i dont need the Chi bar underneath my Player unit frame. I unchecked the "show special bar" box in the xperl settings, however it does not remove the special bar.

  • #7240

    This is a bug please report it in the wowace xperl ticket pane

  • #7253

    The Monk supports on X-Perl didn't completed, just some basic supports...

    Complaining on here is useless, please go the WoWAce(with your Curse account, they're the same now) and send tickets(or comment on that exist ticket about Monk support)...

    And don't expect it will fixed soon...

    I have had this issue since launch a month ago, despite the constant updates to this addon it seems I have to deal with broken resource managements.

  • #7235

    Error Report for every time I attempt to Dismiss my Hunter's Pet. Haven't played a Hunter since Vanilla until today, so I'm not sure how long this problem has been going on for. Forced to go to a Stable everytime I need to switch active pet, or tame a new one. Would really help if this bug was fixed.

    No, it's same as SetFocus, you cannot do that on X-Perl or other UnitFrame addons...

    (Unless they do some Blizzard method to fix it, but not X-Perl.)

  • #7234

    guys ?

  • #7233

    "

    r763 | asixandur | 2012-10-18 11:51:34 +0000 (Thu, 18 Oct 2012) | 1 line
    Changed paths:
    M /trunk/XPerl_PlayerBuffs/XPerl_PlayerBuffs.lua

    Probably fixes "Buffs Above Player Spacing Issue""

     

    I'm still having this issue, except now the buffs don't even try to wrap, they just stack on top of eachother if there is more than one bar worth.

  • #7237

    Confirmed that problem, but looks like asixandur do not know how to fix that, and no one knows since Patch 4.0...

  • #7232

    I closed down that window which tell me who is targeting me/assisting me..etc how to reopen it? thanks

    Re: X-Perl UnitFrames Aggro Warning

    Hi Guys.

    Firstly thank you for this great addon, its great that you constanly keep it updated. However I, like a few others have not been able to get the big movable aggro warning to work since MOP. Please bring back this feature as it is invaluable.

  • #7263

    I have exactly the same problem, even in party or raid group the Aggro Warning is not showing anymore. It is activated in the helper panel.

    And i need it cuz im tank...

    If u find any solution for this let us know please. Thanks
