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.

    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.

    I would like to request 3 features:

    1) Text Placement: Can we get an option to just do X and Y offsets from a corner? It would help me place text where I want it better.

    2) Aura Filters: Can custom Aura Filters be global instead of profile specific? I use a different configuration on some of my characters so they are on different profiles but I need to program in Aura Filters separately, can I just input it once and reference it by both profiles?

    3) Raid Order: Is it possible to order the groups by role? Say Tanks then Melee then Range then Healers based upon the spec the player is in. Even if I manually have to tell it to look up everyone's spec at the start of a raid or when they change specs it would be good.

    Ahh...would be nice if you'd mention that obsoleteness in your instructions on making custom modules. Would save others from a lot of frustration.

    @DesigningKnights modules.xml is obsolete unless you're running a monolithic PitBull4 which we don't package, that's why the whole file is commented out in the packages. So that shouldn't matter. Problem was the .pkgmeta didn't have the line to make the separate directory for the module.

    Ok, I completely removed the previous alpha and installed the latest alpha from 4 hours ago. I'm not getting any error messages for pitbull at all (I do have lua errors turned on) , but I do not see the Eclipse module in the list of modules to activate. I see the module in the modules folder, but looking at the modules.xml, there is no reference to the eclipse module at all.

    @DesigningKnights Update, I forgot to commit some code. If you're going to run beta/PTR you should be doing so with Lua errors enabled so you can report the errors.

    Ok so I see that the latest alpha says in the changelog that the eclipse bar is working on the PTR. Where do I find it in options to activate it?

    ah ha!!! I knew it was going to be something stupidly obvious. *facepalm*

    Thanks very much :D
