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.

    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.

    In the last version I downloaded you had merged the party and raid frames or some such.

    I use Grid instead, so I'd very much like to be able to have my party frames hide when I enter a raid, except if I am in the arena. (In which case I have modified Grid to hide)

    Is this something you could do? (If you don't have already. I don't have time to play WoW right now. My version is about... 3-4 days old I think)

    Great addon so far btw.

    It's coming along very nice, but i currently have a layout that i can't seem to recreate in Pitbull 4, i like to have the Portrait as a bar in the centre but cropped slightly so it's not a square..

    see attached link for my current style: http://homepage.mac.com/theiaind/.Pub.../ScreenShot_011909_191649.jpeg

    But the options don't allow me to manipulate the portrait like they do in Pitbull 3 to get the same look

    I have noticed you have added an option to add Portrait as a bar but i can only Left/Right align it and not centre it.

    Is there any plans to allow more customization to the portrait part?

    Wow... just wow! I've been a fan of Pitbull for a long time, but for various reasons switched in the last couple of weeks... I noticed PB4 here and thought, "It sounds alpha-quality, but I can't resist", so I tried it out last night and I've switched to it full-time now.

    It's been refactored very logically, and I love the options! The kind of control that I really like. I've gotten an occasional error message and had to logout once because it got stuck in configure mode, but I love it.

    As far as raid frames, if I'm in a raid, I'm going to use Grid, so I'm one of the lucky ones that PB4 is nearly feature-complete for. I really like having buffs under the frame and debuffs above (more visible). I really like the option to have bars (health, mana, etc) go vertical, but fitting the text in then become very difficult...

    Keep up the good work!

    One bug to report is that if I try to set power (mana) text to simple (I think, or was it short or something like that), it gets a dogtags error that it is using a non-existent tag.

    I'm not going to give any timelines for features, minicooepr42, you're just going to have to wait. I have other priorities in life than PitBull4. This is mostly something I do on the weekends or at night if I'm in the mood. That makes it very hard to draw out timelines.

    Really great mod any idea how long raid units are gonna be?

    I welcome the removal of Rock.

    I'm really liking v4. Especially the new layout editor, and the X/Y positioning for the frames themselves.

    Ooooh, and the saved vars are much cleaner, too!
