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.

    I've sorted through the various posts and haven't found any information about these issues, but please forgive me if they're in there and I missed them. I am having an issue with re-enabling combat text once it's disabled. It seems that once I disable combat text on a certain layout, I cannot re-enable it. If I create a new text, I cannot get it to show the text as combat text (I am horrible with dogtags but I don't think I can configure it there). Secondly, I really liked the way vehicle units would replace my pet bar when possessed. Unfortunately, that has been changed to replace my Unit when possessed, and the player defaults to the pet unit. The issue with this is that I don't have combat text enable on my unit since I use another mod for that, and cannot re-enable it (see above). Nor do I have auras and buffs enabled on my unit because again, I use a different mod for that. If you are going to keep the vehicle bars as the player bars, is there a way to have the units swap or display certain information when possessing a vehicle? In other words, I need to see the damage a vehicle takes, as well as the buffs it has when I'm in it...

    In Pitbull3, you can change the color of the bar color, as well as the bar's background color. Been banging my head against all these options and do not yet see how that is done in Pitbull4. Can anybody assist?

    Alright, my frames now look gorgeous, however there is one thing, which I simply can't find: How I can change the size of the text on buffs? I am not using Buff/Debuff remaining spiral, but only the seconds/minutes. However, they look quite big with Bazooka-font and so on.

    Thanks authors for the best thing since sliced bread! I've been using Pitbull forever and I love it!

    One thing I noticed on my priest is that some heals only show on my own bar, where I would expect them to be visible on more. I am referring to "Prayer of Healing", which should show incoming heals on a whole group, and "Binding Heal", which should show incoming heals on me and my target.

    I am sure I have seen heals appear on a whole group, but I guess that was from someone else not using Pitbull?

    Keep up the good work!

    I was wondering if you were ever planning to allow adding say an extra bar to the focus unit frame and have it display the focus target? Is this possible already and I am just missing it? Also I would like this feature to combine my pet frame...im a hunter...into a bar on my player frame.

    Alright. Nevermind all my gibberish non-sense. I got this thing to work, with plenty Textures and fonts and all that. Right on!

    Oh and, I find this 4th version far more messy than 3rd version, but it doesn't mean it's bad. I already got tons of ideas how to set this thing up, we'll see when I bother go through all stuff. :p

    Nope sorry, I meant that you need to install SharedMedia to get the textures.

  • Avatar of Sofer Sofer May 28, 2009 at 18:23 UTC - 0 likes

    So Shefki you are saying, that this PitBull4 includes SharedMedia itself, and therefor I don't have to move my finger, besides from installing PitBull4, to get all Textures and shit for it?

    EDIT: Alright, for some reason this AddOn simply doesn't work for me. I changed the Texture of my Healthbar, but it doesn't change. I tried ALL 3 of the different textures it had to offer, neither of them worked. I don't get this. I asked for help, someone said something about Global Settings, and I can't find this "Global Settings" either. What is going on?

    Sofer, install SharedMedia. The textures come from there.

  • Avatar of Sofer Sofer May 27, 2009 at 07:25 UTC - 0 likes

    Are there textures inside this AddOn, ready to use? As far as I can remember, last time I tried confing this thing up, I couldn't change the texture of a healthbar of a target/player or whatever frame.

    Everytime I even try to config this up, it seems like nothing is working, or changing, if I set up something up. I wish to give it even another shot sometime.
