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.

    Rolled back one version at a time and v4.0.0-beta48-1-g594a6b5 has the full menu, so it was a code change done in v4.0.0-beta48-79-g706977f which removed the full menu, i'm sticking to the old version for now.

    Yeah, it has been like that for a while now. Possibly ever since (or somewhere between) patch 5.4 or 5.4.8. Thought it was a blizzard-side issue. Don't know PB4's code enough to say what's changed with it. :(

    Recently changed to the current alpha and noticed the raid frame right click menu is no longer the full one but the limited one used for the focus unitframe, is this change intentional?

    I have recently noticed that the green burning embers turns red when zoning into an instance. After some troubleshooting by moving the Interface and WTF folders out of the game folder back and forth a couple of times, I have found that it's got something to do with Pitbull4, as it does this even with default PB4 settings (while it works like it should without addons/fresh UI).

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    I'm not counting on any of you authors to actually have a lvl 90 warlock with green fire, so let me know if there's anything I can test. I have noob-skills in lua code (like, replace code at X line, ect).

    Fantastic! If there's anything I can do to help, I'll be happy to do so. =)

    Yes. Just waiting for my beta access so I can work on it. I was too late in asking for it to get in last weeks batch so I should hopefully have access sometime this coming week.

    Not sure if I'm too early to ask this, but will Pitbull4 be updated to work with Warlords of Draenor?

    So just wondering, does this addon disable the boss health bars now? If so, is there a way to reenable the wow default boss bars?

    Nevermind I found it

    If I run Trade Skill Master or SpamMeNot Addons I get the error message I posted below.

    Anyone got an idea of what may be causing the issue I posted below?

    Could it be another add-on? I've tried to test for that without luck.

    It seems to work on some bosses but not others and the error below always appears exactly the same every time it doesn't show.
