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 would like to see visual heal put into this also. I would also like to be able to turn off certain things for different frames. Like auras for example. I only like them to show up on the party, party pets and target frames. Not on anything else. If i turn them off for me it turns them off for every frame. I use elkano buff bars so I don't need to see my buffs on my frame. It would be nice if you can place the portrait as a bar on the frame also like how it is in Pitbull 3. Unless I just haven't figured out oh to attach it that way. I do like the config window a lot. It's very nice!

    Also, I was having a problem when in a party where the party pet frames weren't showing up. I had them enabled but they never showed up.

    I didn't see an option for raid frames or raid pets frames. In Malygos I use the raid pets frames to be able to heal when everyone is on the drakes.

    I'll check back for more changes to this but I think I'm going to stick with Pitbull 3 for now since it has a lot of small options I like still.

    In PB3 it showed the effect of incomming heals (that is how much it would increase your healthpool), I can't seem to activate this in PB4, is it implemented yet?

    Love the new configuration-window!

    BlackPandemic, Modules will eventually be split like PB3. That setup is superior in that it allows unused modules to not be loaded at all.

    There isn't a difference in look (except what's not yet completed, like auras), the difference is under the hood, and in the configuration/options. The idea is to be able to do everything pb3 did, except easier to configure, and use less resources.

    Thanks for finishing my translation, I like how everything is working. However, in some cases capital letters are missing. I tried fixing it, but nothing changed :\ It looks just bad. Is it fixable?
