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.

Can be found in my new universal buffing mod, ZOMGBuffs

    All those problems could be solved by simply moving your frames around.

    You have to have the Xperl options open to drag the frames around, give it a try! :)

    Got on WoW this morning and x-perl setup parameters were all on default or something other than what I spent hours perfecting. Today is 3/19/2012 and I notice that you made a change 3/18/2012 could it have reset my x-perl parameters?

  • #6680

    Hello there.

    Im wondering if its possible to hide the <Missing Buff: xxxxxx, xxxxxx> on buffs? its kinda annoying seeing a massive list of people who dont have buffs i have while in a raid (For example slice and dice, adrenaline rush etc)

    Also, Xperl doesnt seem to display Death Knight runes on Cooldown properly, the runes stay solid and show no cooldown animation, on the Special bar (both Docked and Undocked with player)

    This will happen to me on-and-off every now and then:

    While using Xperl, the default Blizzard unitframe for my character will be behind the Xperl unitframe, instead of being completely gone. Sometimes, it'll function properly and only have the Xperl frame. I don't know what causes it to do this, and I just can't figure out how to make the Blizzard frame stop showing up. Any ideas?

  • #6674

    Is there a way for the MT list to fill up when doing LFR or does only work in raid when main tanks are set by the leader?

  • #6672

    As far as i know, that's not something that xperl does. You're thinking of healbot.

  • #6671

    I've used X-Perl for some time now and not had a single problem with it, used it on my main (Mage) and my various Alts, two being a DK and a Pala... as said before, no issues... UNTILLLLL NOWWWWW "duh duh duhhhhhh" ;). Basically when i leveled my ret pala about 4 months ago i could see the Hpower gains on the special bar. I just went onto him and i now can not. The "special bar" option is ticked. Added to this, my now 85 DK has no problems with seeing his runes so i have no idea what is going on. I've disabled X-perl to test if it was that, and it is :( and i'm kinda stuck. Help plz :D

  • #6677

    See the 5th bullet point in Known Issues above.  And if it is already checked like mine was: uncheck it, log all the way out, come back in and check it, log all the way out, and come back in again.  Should fix it.

    Hey i'm not sure if this has been asked for before but i was hoping you could make the risen ghoul count as a pet? I play a frost DK and when i summon him he doesn't show up on the pet frame, or even make it a option maybe? If there is an option that allows it to show that i've missed feel free to let me know and also i was wondering if you could make it an option to make the party frames seperate?? So instead of it just being a bar, making it so we can place each player frame where ever we want? This is to fit it with my addon "Battle Herald"

    Thanks

  • #6668

    I cant seem to activate focus..... please help me

     

  • #6675

    Do /focus on the target and it works

  • #6667

    Is there a way to get tank windows to show up in LFR?  Also, in my raids, tank windows only show main tanks making the assist kinda useless.
