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.

    Made a quick and dirty mops update, I haven't updated the Aura filters so you'll get a load of unknown spell id spam when you log, otherwise it should be kinda working (only tested on my main char)... you can get it at http://madalien.com/pub/wow/pitbull_mops_changes.7z you'll just need to overwrite the beta30 files (if on OSX be sure to replace files only and not the folders).

    Note that this is not an official update or any indication that this addon will be updated for mops, just something to help wile the official update doesn't come or you change to a new addon...

    Is this project dead or is it going to be upgraded for mists? Should we start looking for a replacement ?

    I upgraded to the 64-bit client and now Pitbull is throwing up many errors.

    To Wit:

    Blizzard's combo point UI isn't hiding unless you disable and re-enable "Hide Blizzard frames" each and every time you log in. Any chance of a fix for this?

    Alternatively, is there a simple script for this option that I could macro to make life easier in the short term?

    @CitadelRunner: Go PB 4.0 doesn't have boss frames. So it's impossible.

    Not sure how to get a unit frame to show for Deathwing in the Madness of Deathwing Encounter. Any suggestions?

    Hello everybody. I'm sorry I didn't read 120+ pages in this thread and the search didn't answer my question, so that's why I'm writing it.

    I'd like to know if it's possible in PB 4.0 to color debuffs, which don't belong to player, in grey, like it's realized in TukUI and many other LUA-modes.

    Thank you.

    I absolutely love this... i would love it even more however if someone could tell me if it is possible to have the health bar background as class colour? or if not possible maybe a new feature? :-D

    thanks in advance :)
