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.

    Shefki: Thanks man.. it worked, everything is back to normal .. not really sure why an update would do that, maybe it was intentional from you guys? :P

    Kaziedk, Go to modules, uncheck Enabled under LuaTexts and check Enabled under DogTagTexts.

    Can anyone help me? ..

    Today i updated PB4, but when i then logged in all my texts were messed up.. it had moved everything around, renamed everything to LUA:<Default name here> .. in some way it just fucked everything up and i had all default texts instead of my own custom ones.

    Is there anyway of recovering them? .. i also noticed that i cannot reproduce them as the addon contineously returns an error message when trying to save any type of string, even tho dogtags accepts it.

    Go to your bars and find Black Space(or whatever it's called these days) and set the opacity to 0% on everything along with removing all borders.. That should do the trick.


    On this screenshot i use a similar(almost) setup, without the border between the parts, however i use KgPanels for Borders as i use it several places and before PB4 had worthy borders :P if it does today hehe..

    I hope that helped ya a little.

    Shefki I took a better screenshot for ya :)

    Look at the player frane, there's a small light grey border around the outisde the blank space between the health and power bars... I can't figure it out

    please help!

    Disregard the adorable oozling in the background...




    Okay, so this is what I'm trying now:

    Enable borders, turn all borders opacity to 0, then disable borders again.

    Update: So far I think this actually fixed it.

    Cathiel, It is an option. Just turn on the DogTagTexts module.

    shefki,It would be nice if you could make it an option wether you want to use lua or dogtags. I for one, prefered the dog tags and kinda miss them :<

    Kupo, I saw your ticket. I just haven't had time to look at it.
