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 have an issue still not being able to set focus. Get the message that the Blizzard UI did not allow it to do something. All I can do is to disable or ignore. I know it is only this mod now, as when I disable it, I can set the focus.

    • Open your keybinding options interface
    • find the 'set focus target' option
    • set a key
    • target someone, and use the key
    • rejoice!

    Because we haven't had a chance to figure out how to fix the problem. 3.0.8 supposedly allows us to, but we need to mess around with the new code and figure out how it works.

    Edit: Looks like 3.0.8 doesn't let us do this actually. So it's going to stay broken. Not much we can do about this. Waiting on Blizzard to provide us a way to make this work.

    I just found this version and gave it a whirl, as a long time fan of pitbull i have to say i love the changes to configuration. Excellent improvement to an already top notch mod.

    In the last version I downloaded you had merged the party and raid frames or some such.

    I use Grid instead, so I'd very much like to be able to have my party frames hide when I enter a raid, except if I am in the arena. (In which case I have modified Grid to hide)

    Is this something you could do? (If you don't have already. I don't have time to play WoW right now. My version is about... 3-4 days old I think)

    Great addon so far btw.

    It's coming along very nice, but i currently have a layout that i can't seem to recreate in Pitbull 4, i like to have the Portrait as a bar in the centre but cropped slightly so it's not a square..

    see attached link for my current style: http://homepage.mac.com/theiaind/.Pub.../ScreenShot_011909_191649.jpeg

    But the options don't allow me to manipulate the portrait like they do in Pitbull 3 to get the same look

    I have noticed you have added an option to add Portrait as a bar but i can only Left/Right align it and not centre it.

    Is there any plans to allow more customization to the portrait part?
