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.

    Still the best unit frame addon around!

    One thing I noticed though: Pitbull isn't picking up on the colour change of my embers from red to green after completing the quest. The default UI is fine however.

    Minor change I know, but still ;)

    P.S. Still loving the addon, and hoping for official boss support in the future :)

    @nouk: Go

    There's a workaround for the boss frames at http://www.wowace.com/addons/pitbull4/tickets/957-patch-basic-boss-frames/

    Apparently Shefki doesn't like that solution, but it's worked fine for me.

    @Williams348: Go

    I'll try to look at it and some of the other improvements that 5.2 has made possible this weekend. Since I haven't looked at them I can't really comment much on how much work will need to go into implementing them.

    Thanks for updating this so fast, really appreciate you maintaining the addon! :)

    Quick question: any chance on including the new absorb UI into the addon?

    If your so frustrated go write your own addon bro.

    Agree'ed Shefki, I know you guys dont get paid to create/maintain this addon but by far its the best UI addon in the game. Not a fan of all the QQ'ers complaining about why this isnt updated as soon as they log in to 5.2, my advise is if you want to complain rather then be supportive go write you own addon, otherwise be greatful for the efforts people put to keep this addon running.

    Thanks for your effort to keep this functioning. I love this unitframe addon far more than any other (customization is wonderful).

    @shinntorg: Go

    Stanzilla has done some work towards making it work in 5.2. I'll probably look at it tonight to see what if anything needs doing. I have to say I really hate comments like this because you're not really saying that there is anything specific wrong with it. You're just assuming that there's something going to be wrong with it.

    While I certainly don't play very much anymore and as such don't pay much attention to the addon, I do generally fix things that break due to the patches. If for no other reason than that I do still use the addon.

    There will be much frustration and sadness if there is no 5.2 update later today. Let us hope the lack of response to this and similar comments is due to frantic work to get it running again and not its death.
