Frames Resized into Small Squares

Delete any old SmallerBlizzardRaidFrames folder. The new folders are SmallBlizRaidFrames and SmallBlizRaidFrames_Options.

Makes the Blizzard raid frames half their normal size, while scaling up names, buffs, and icons to keep them readable.

- /sbrf for options.

- Can fill hp vertically, in addition to horizontally.

- Optionally center names.

- Optionally move or hide buffs, debuffs, and dispellable debuffs.

- Options for frame height and width are still in Blizzard's Interface Options / Raid Frames.

- The mod is pretty tiny. Most of what you see in the file size is the config UI which only loads when requested.

Credits

The inspiration for this came from a forum post by Shamanbrian, with macros to manipulate the Blizzard size sliders to lower values. Also Dridzt was working on something similar, and explained taint issues to me. Unfortunately all of these implementations cause taint. The current implementation is different and in some ways limited, but doesn't cause taint.

    I'm not going to update this. If someone else wants it, they can PM me.

    Also I'm considering quitting addon development permanently, because of the huge amount of daily quests in MoP. The massive daily quest time sink makes it almost impossible to find spare time for addons anymore, and even if things change in the future, I'm so resentful at Blizzard for forcing that time sink on us, that I may never do something charitable (like help with addons) again.

    Any plans to update this addon for Mists of Pandaria? I prefer the built-in raid UI but even the minimum setting is too big and distracting.

    It's not likely I'll get to that before Cataclysm. Resizing the fonts and looking into the bug reports on aggro-highlight borders are the main things I want done for Cata. Also a lot of users want a way to sort the frames right-to-left, and while I suspect it's not possible I still have to spend some time trying and seeing what can be done.

    If I do add to the frames, the first thing will be raid icons since it's the most requested. Then I can look at other things.

    Any chance this will be able to show AFK, Feign Death, Rezzing, etc tags in the future?

    Thanks!

    The new version will make party frames a bit smaller, but not as small as raid frames. When I have a full config UI, there'll be options to control this.

    I haven't looked at party frames at all since 4.0; just haven't had time. I might run into the answer when working in this so I'll keep it in mind though.

    Any way to make the party frames, when viewed as raid frames, be horizontal instead of vertical?
