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.

    Is it possible to add a "combo point" function for the shaman's maelstrom weapon? I dunno if this is doable since maelstrom weapon is a regular player buff.

    Anyway, thanks for this great addon! :)

    VisualHeal is coming. Lifebloombar was done by someone else and wasn't typically part of the PitBull addon itself. I'd imagine they'll probably update or rewrite it for this.

    As far as the Aura filters. You can't find it because it's not done yet.

    ok i have one last question. i was looking in the text files of this addon and i can't find how to disable certain buffs that are cast by my class.

    I did this in the last pitbull 3 by setting it up so i had all unit frames to only show buffs that are cast by myself, except for the "Target" unit frame which was set to show all buffs. I then changed a text file in pitbull_aura. "Filter.lua"

    elseif playerClass == 'DRUID' then canDispel = { ["Curse"] = true, ["Poison"] = true, } selfBuffs = { } friendBuffs = { [2893] = true, -- Abolish Poison [29166] = true, -- Innervate [33763] = true, -- Lifebloom [8936] = true, -- Regrowth [774] = true, -- Rejuvenation [740] = true, -- Tranquility [48496] = self.WoTLK or nil, -- Living Seed [48438] = self.WoTLK or nil, -- Wild Growth } This is how it looks now, before it included moonkin aura, tree aura, Motw, thorns etc.

    I did this so i only see my hots on the unit frames, not the buffs. It's very hard to heal as resto druid if i see so many buffs everywhere, i have some problems with pitbull 3 so i'd like to do the same thing i have done there in this Pitbull 4 version. Can you please maybe show me how to change this in the text files?

    I have an issue still not being able to set focus. Get the message that the Blizzard UI did not allow it to do something. All I can do is to disable or ignore. I know it is only this mod now, as when I disable it, I can set the focus.

    • Open your keybinding options interface
    • find the 'set focus target' option
    • set a key
    • target someone, and use the key
    • rejoice!

    Because we haven't had a chance to figure out how to fix the problem. 3.0.8 supposedly allows us to, but we need to mess around with the new code and figure out how it works.

    Edit: Looks like 3.0.8 doesn't let us do this actually. So it's going to stay broken. Not much we can do about this. Waiting on Blizzard to provide us a way to make this work.

    I just found this version and gave it a whirl, as a long time fan of pitbull i have to say i love the changes to configuration. Excellent improvement to an already top notch mod.
