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.

    Thanks for your prompt and clear response, understood, i have really spent a long time configuring these bars they are second to none and i absolutely love you now you have finally put boss frames in <3 i have another few questions however.

    I have set up solo, 5, 10, 25, 40 man displays different to each other.

    my first question, when in a 10 man raid for example and players drop to 5 or below due to people leaving it will switch to a 5 man layout, however if there are people in group 2, 3... only the people in group 1 are shown, is there something i have ticked incorrectly here?

    second question, i really like the customization of how i can display everything how i want, however buffs and debuffs seem / i have missed, not so customizable, for example for my 10 man layout i have 10 standard looking party bars with buffs on left debuffs on right which is fine i have turned off all the buffs i don't want shown and left on the ones i want. However when i switch to 25 man i am in more of a grid looking layout and i don't want some of the 10 man buffs shown, i cant seem to see a way to be able to do this? and if not, this would be an awesome feature ;)

    @doondoon: Go

    Ordering by role is not supported by the SecureGroup headers. We could implement it but it would only update the ordering out of combat, players that joined your group in combat would be left out. This becomes really annoying in battlegrounds. So I'm not inclined to implement something like this that's not supported by the secure frames.

    Is there a way to order by roll, in my 10 man setup i have the bars in a line down and would like to place tanks top 2 spots then dps then healers, is this possible?

    You're going to have to give me more info that that. I don't raid or really play much anymore. So I have no idea what you're talking about.

    I'm so excited that you did get boss frames in this build, but I was wondering if you were planning on having adds on that list like in Nazgrim? It would be awesome, but I understand if its not in the cards yet!

    Latest alpha build has boss and arena enemy frames included. You'll have to make a new group and set them up.

    Boss Frames

    For love of Elune, and the Light, and the beings I met while tripping on Four Senses Brew... please make boss1 .. 5 available for configuration (as per tank frames).

    Hello! I'm having a problem getting my Tank frames working, and I'm sure it's just something I'm not configuring.

    I followed the steps in the how-to article (I did tank and tank target groups) - and this shows up properly when I have a Raid selected from the pull down menu. However, when I get into a Raid - it does not display at all. If, while in the raid, I go into the Tank group and remove the filter, setting it to show all, it does. So the group is active. (I do notice that it displays "all" in a different location, just in case that is valuable info)

    When I inspect Blizzard frames (which I don't know where to turn off ), the tanks have the shield displayed & I have specifically asked the tanks to be marked.

    So, what have I not done, that I need to do? T.I.A.

    Edit. The answer seems to be turn off the Blizzard frames in the interface by making a new profile for it and de-selecting everything. I did not remember having to do that before.

    Anyway chalk it up to user error, but you might want to update the instructions to mention it. Thank you very much. I have always enjoyed PitBull.
