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.

    AOh, Sorry, i forgot :D

    It's on the ptr. I don't get any errors. Do I need to handle the lib as a standalone addon? Or is there a folder where i've to copy it?

    If you guys are talking about DogTags on beta or the ptr it would be helpful if you'd mention that. I just checked on live and it's working fine. If you want DogTags to work on the ptr/beta you need to install the latest alpha of LibDogTag-Unit: http://www.wowace.com/addons/libdogtag-unit-3-0/files/

    There will be a tag of it before 4.0.x hits live and it will be included in the DogTags module for PitBull4 then.

    P.S. It's also helpful if you report the errors that it's throwing when you reporting things like this.

    I assume, you think, castleace has forgotten to change the texthanlder, but i tried too, and DogTag isn't working, every Tag is unknown and shows up an error.

    Any complains?

    The default for texts is LuaTexts. You will need to go under Modules to turn Dogtags on and turn LuaTexts off. If you haven't done so... that's why you are getting an error.

    Sorry to sound stupid if I do... but..

    Am I the only one that is having trouble getting just about any and all DogTags to work? Even [HP] does nothing but give an error in my health bar field, saying unknown tag hp.

    I suppose Dog Tags haven't been updated, or I'm retarded. ;p

    Is there any way to add font outlines and remove font shadows on health/mana text?

    I've noticed there seems to be a border already on combat text.
