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.

    @angrysteel: you can approximate it with some clever lua texts, though.
    @luarookie: read the ticket, there is a workaround in there

    @angrysteel, not at this time. Feel free to open a ticket.

    @luarookie, Sounds like this problem, which is probably a bug in Ace3 that we've never been able to track down: http://www.wowace.com/addons/pitbull4/tickets/438-dog-tag-text-edit-box-not-showing-text/

    @ulrich_, Can't say that I've experienced this. Are you sure you've updated to beta10? beta9 would generate errors on events from the boss1-4 events, that were never generated by WoW until 3.3.5. That would cause the problems you're describing and Halion does have boss frames.

    In the latest patch I've experiencing my FPS dropping down below 10 then WoW crashing.

    Happend on a few fights in ICC, but does it all the time on Halion.

    I noticed when I disabled Pitbull4 on the Halion fight I didn't have any FPS problems nor crashes.

    I'm using Beta 10.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I have been using PB for a few years now, so I am fairly familiar with the GUI, but I have managed to do something today I cant track down. I started a new toon and tried to start editing some of the LUA texts, but not only can I not edit them (when I click in the text box the cursor is unresponsive and it wont accept keyboard input) but all my presets (i.e. "LUA:Class") are in German ("LUA:Klasse). I disabled all other mods and still I have this problem and only with PB4 (latest version within a few days). Thanks in advance.

    Is it possible to only show buffs on mouse-over?

    Basically looking to keep my buffs hidden unless i mouse-over my player frame.

    @Kupotek, That means you didn't updated to beta10.

    Do you have them disabled (checked) under Modules, Hide Blizzard?

    I've recently switched from X-perl to Pitbull 4 and have loved all the features but I have run into just a single problem. Where the buffs would show up on a default WoW UI, in the upper right corner where the mini map would apear, the buffs are still there. I have them custom set up to be on the top of my unit frame, and that works fine, but the default for WoW's UI will not go away. And ideas?
