XLoot Frame

Notes about new version and the major changes made

If you are experiencing more than one problem, please make sure you completely remove XLoot and download it fresh from here or the Curse Client.

After that, please create or comment on a existing ticket with your error(s)

All options are available via /xloot or Interface -> AddOns -> XLoot (/xlm toggles Monitor's anchors, /xlg toggles Group's)


XLoot is a small group of addons which improve looting in WoW by replacing default frames.

XLoot Frame
Replaces the Loot Frame, adding more information and behavior/appearance options.
XLoot Group
Replaces Group Loot frames, modifies Loot Alerts/Bonus Roll frame
Group frames display current roll choices, the rolled numbers, and the winner.
If you experience any problems rolling on items, please disable XLoot Group and post a report with any error.
I understand this may cause you to lose out on a item, which is extremely unfortunate.
However, I am unable to debug it myself as I no longer play, but welcome any errors or volunteer debugging efforts.
The rest of XLoot can be used safely without Group.
XLoot Monitor
Shows a "toaster" for looting items, similar to Guild Wars 2, allowing you to either more visibly see what you and others loot, or remove loot messages from your chat box all together.
XLoot Master
Provides a more convenient Master Looter menu

Any of these modules (Frame, Group, Monitor, Master) can be disabled like any other addon if you do not want their functionality.

Masque Skins

Not all Masque skins will work without adjustment.

Please see XLoot\skins.lua (Comments at the top) and then XLoot\SKIN_TWEAKS.lua (See examples and add tweak for skin here)

Old versions

I understand that these are large changes and may take adjustment. If you have suggestions as to how to improve the mod or something you want from the old version, please let me know.

If you are offended by these changes, a mop-compatible version will remain here but will not be supported: http://www.wowace.com/addons/xloot/files/429-mop-3-release/

I welcome your feedback.

    At the moment the "Show/Hide anchors" toggle button in the "Group Loot / Anchors" config is not hiding the XLoot Monitor anchor. I am aware of the /xlm command but I wanted to bring this to your attention.

    Also, you are introducing Pawn compatibility? Care to explain a little about this, I am curious, Thanks. =)

    I wasn't sure if that would be sufficient since I delete xloot stuff every time i update. Thought maybe something was causing a corruption of some sort. Rather overkill and make sure then underkill and have to figure out whats wrong.

    Thanks, I was about to suggest you do that. However, next time you only need to delete XLoot* in Addons and XLoot.ini in WTF\Account\SavedVariables =\

    So just got done with deleting the WTF and Addons folders. Hate wiping but this was getting wierd and irritating. Reloaded all my addons. What ever was causing it is now fixed. Which is really weird. Glad it is fixed. sadly no clue what to tell you bout what it could have been.

    @Watz386: Go

    Even after /reload'ing or re-opening wow it's there? And always grey items on the ghost anchor?

    sorry for the small screen size. for some reason its how wow likes to take screen captures for me. Rather annoying and a whole nother topic.

    It seems to be a completely different anchor. The single green item by itself. without any greys is the one with the anchor I am aware of. The one with greys is just well... there. The top group everything grey and above pops up on. The lower one which is the one with an anchor is common an above.

    Right, it doesn't make much sense, but the checkboxes won't actually toggle it until you reload right now. Not really much of anything takes effect without a reload. That will be changing but is the current state.

    Anyway, I can hardly see that screenshot. That row looks different than the others. What has to happen for loot to appear there, or what kind of loot appears there? Is it attaching to another anchor? I've never actually seen it happen so I'm at the same time intrigued and stumped.

    Thank you for the rapid response. Its perfectly fine. Its pretty common to get people who are not willing to read. Stick on any forum long enough and you see it rampantly.

    Example Here is the screen shot showing what I am talking about its really weird. Side note the check box for the monitor in the config isn't toggling it only the slash command you said did. by the way. excellent add-on. please keep up the great work.

    Well, color me abashed.

    Not sure what's up with you getting two loot monitors, could you take a screenshot?

    As far as anchors, /xlg will toggle Group's, and /xlm will toggle Monitor's. There are checkmarks in the options for either module as well.

    Sorry about the snapping - We authors get a lot of people who don't pay much attention =\
