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.

    @sh1ko, Without the erorrs I have no idea.

    @costomojin, You should report the problem to the Rune-it-all author. Has nothing to do with PitBull4.

    What is the issue? I am using a rune addon other then pitbull 4, My issue is everytime I mount in a vehicle my runes move to the player health frame. When I dismount the runes stay there till I re-load the UI. I want to say that I don't have something turned off in pitbull but I cannot say for certain. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Please provide any additional information below. I am using bartender, Pitbull 4 and Rune-it-all.

    Normal layout working perfectly: http://img709.imageshack.us/img709/6783/wowscrnshot091110053849.jpg

    Is it possible to move the position of the name text away from the anchor points? By using offsets of some sort, like the aura setup?

    Hi. I have a problem with Pitbull addon. I sorted out how to work with it, made some nice looked interface. But then, when i wanna test it i went on BG. That was Eye of Storm and when i get in there i receive some errors compared with Pitbull. It works properly, but i have on the screen 5 or 6 unexpected bars. Without any text or something, only horizontal colored bars. They apper and disappear randomly. Later i went to WSG and there was no problems at all. Sadly, but i have no time yesterday to test the addon work more.

    I understand that, but doesn;t some1 already have that Lua here? cause i don;t know the 1st thing about writing one..

    @Jonostra, It's possible you'd just have to write the Lua to do it, none of the default ones are going to do that.

    Hello all..

    Is it possible to show names in class color, but also in green for PvP players and city NPC's, red for enemy players and mobs and yellow for neutral creatures?

    Essentially, what I want is to get the exact same name colors as when I'm using Blizz unit frames. All I got so far is class color, no matter PvP, enemy, friendly, etc..

    @maxtormm, No idea why you can't get it to do that. I had no problem doing that when someone complained about it a while back and tested it. I confirmed that the frame levels are set such that texts are always above portraits. The only thing I can think of is that possibly you are running an old version before I reorganized the frame levels.
