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 assume, you think, castleace has forgotten to change the texthanlder, but i tried too, and DogTag isn't working, every Tag is unknown and shows up an error.

    Any complains?

    The default for texts is LuaTexts. You will need to go under Modules to turn Dogtags on and turn LuaTexts off. If you haven't done so... that's why you are getting an error.

    Sorry to sound stupid if I do... but..

    Am I the only one that is having trouble getting just about any and all DogTags to work? Even [HP] does nothing but give an error in my health bar field, saying unknown tag hp.

    I suppose Dog Tags haven't been updated, or I'm retarded. ;p

    Is there any way to add font outlines and remove font shadows on health/mana text?

    I've noticed there seems to be a border already on combat text.

    I would like to request 3 features:

    1) Text Placement: Can we get an option to just do X and Y offsets from a corner? It would help me place text where I want it better.

    2) Aura Filters: Can custom Aura Filters be global instead of profile specific? I use a different configuration on some of my characters so they are on different profiles but I need to program in Aura Filters separately, can I just input it once and reference it by both profiles?

    3) Raid Order: Is it possible to order the groups by role? Say Tanks then Melee then Range then Healers based upon the spec the player is in. Even if I manually have to tell it to look up everyone's spec at the start of a raid or when they change specs it would be good.
