PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

Pitbull 4 Config Menu

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.

    Hello. Thank you very much for the add-on. It is very versatile, and so far it has met all of my needs. One thing I cannot figure out though, is how to display my party number (e.g. party #1, party #2, etc) when I am in a raid.

    Thanks again.

    edit: I should also note that I've looked through the guide, but couldn't find anything obvious.

    I have an issue.. or rather, I think it's an issue. My health and power bars decrease vertically (from top to bottom) instead of horizontally (left to right). Is there a way to fix this? I've gone through all the settings but I just cannot find a way to change it.

    @danszczerba: Go

    You'll have to wait until those addons are updated, doesn't have anything to do with the main PitBull4 addon

    @nebula169: it was unchecked for the purpose of the picture showing the out-of-date modules. BUT, even with the "load out of date addons" button checked i still have no names on my bars, as shown in the pic below: pitnames

    plus, i can't find anything about names or nameplate in the config menu. i also disabled all out-of-date addons, except "Pitbull 4 Nameplate", to check for conflicts, but with all disabled i still have no names :-(

    @danszczerba: Go

    you need to check the load out of date addons button (those aren't part of the main pb4 addon)

    @Mejjmejj: Go

    should be better in v4.0.0-beta54-2

    When you lower the strata of bars, auras that show a spiral timer flicker. Have to lower strata to be used with LoseControl.

    hi, i'm have a problem-names are missing from my unit frames and in settings i can find no option for "name plate/bar". in the character log-in screen, under addons, the Pitbull 4 Name Plate and Raid Role Icon is shown as out-dated, the rest is shown as currently updated. using version -any ideas?

    p.s.-updated to v4.0.0-beta53-2-g3bf212d and seen that the Name Plate and Raid Role Icon module are not included...and no, after update still no names :-(
