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'd like to see some more expansive text placement features so layouts like oUF_Lyn can be reproduced in Pitbull. I tried with the version from a few days back and it wouldn't let text sit over a frame border.

    My health bar changes to red occasionally - sometimes when I go below 100%, sometimes after my health is much lower. I am not sure I should post this as a ticket or whether I can just adjust a setting. I have color by class selected and have not made any changes to the colors settings themselves.


    [EDIT: I figured it out and decided to post in case anyone else was wondering: I had banzai on. Simple solution. :)]

    If anyone are wondering how to get ShortClass to work with Death Knights in DogTag 3.0, this is how:

    [Outline][Name:HostileColor] [(AFK or DND):Angle] [if IsPlayer and Class = "Death Knight" then "DK":ClassColor:Paren elseif IsPlayer then ShortClass:ClassColor:Paren end]


    Would be nice if ckknight would fix this.

    Otherwise, this addon just keeps getting better and better. And best of all: It's not "unstable" like the old one was!

    I was trying to make a HUD for my player frame yesterday and it was not possible to make the health and power bar more narrow on the two sides of my character. Both were set to 1, with a blank bar put in between. Width was set to max to allow sufficient spacing. Is there something I missed?

    dafox. it won't show you your health untill you get hit. check your dogtag text on the player (or whatever you have it named) /pb4>layout editor>texts tab>drop down current text to health> options at the code drop down or you can write your own

    Is there a way to unlock the party/pet frames, so they can be moved as a single unit, instead of being moved as a group?

    AndehX2, turning the castbar back on works fine for me. Can you post a ticket for your issue and include exact steps to describe how you get that error? Include the error in the ticket as well.

    Disabling the putbull cast bar is totally messed up. I just wanted my original Blizzard cast bar back, but this isn't possible with this version of PitBull. The error is: Interface\FrameXML\CastingBarFrame.lua:219 : attempt to index local 'self' (a nil value)
