Default Re: ElkBuffBars - Ace2 version

Any chance of getting my little patch added? One of the libs just updated, and it's a little annoying hand-editing a mod every update

Default Re: ElkBuffBars - Ace2 version

i noticed some people asking about cycircled support for EBB in the cycircled thread.
tho i wanted to post my little "hack" for ebb to make it look a bit more in line with the rest of my ui for those who asked.
i only have basic knowledge about lua so it might not be the best way to do it - it just works quite nice for me.
you only have to put the border.tga into your ebb folder and apply the .diff to the EBB_Bar.lua.
if you want to change the border -> edit the border.tga
if you want to change the bordercolors look for the line "frames.iconborder:SetVertexColor(1, 0.8, 0.6)" for the TENCH color or "frames.iconborder:SetVertexColor(0.7, 0.7, 1)" for the BUFF color. (R,G,B -> 1,1,1 = white, 0,0,0 = black)
the DEBUFF color is chosen by debufftype.

Code:
elkano * r61873 ElkBuffBars/ (7 files in 3 dirs): 
ElkBuffBars
- hard-include UTF8 libs
- added ability to not hide default buff and tench frame
- should only show Blizzard frames if it didn't hide them (meaning other addons hiding them shouldn't be harmed)
- should be more robust agianst other addons showing the buffframe again (unregistered its event :P )

Small bug in the current version. Upon login and when zoning, the Blizzard buff frames are hidden, even if they should be displayed. Toggling the hide option twice re-displays them. Found the bug, it's at lines 257/258 in ElkBuffBars.lua:

Code:
function ElkBuffBars:PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD()
	self:HandleFrame_Blizzard_BuffFrame(true)
	self:HandleFrame_Blizzard_TemporaryEnchantFrame(true)
This always hides the frames...should be:
Code:
function ElkBuffBars:PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD()
	self:HandleFrame_Blizzard_BuffFrame(ElkBuffBars.db.profile.hidebuffframe)
	self:HandleFrame_Blizzard_TemporaryEnchantFrame(ElkBuffBars.db.profile.hidetenchframe)

Sorry if this has been already asked but i'm a bit tired today and don't feel like going trough 60 forum pages....is there a way to enable the target debuff bars to show only the ones applied by me?

Thanks.

The quickest and easiest way to do this is just to set timeless buffs to blacklist.

Or, if you use Quartz, use those buff bars instead.

Hi there,

i have a little feature request for EBB.
Would it be possible to add this litte spark graphic other bar based addons (Quartz, CDT) are also using? In my opinion this makes it better to view at one glace how much of the bar is left.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards

Hi,

this is by far the best buffs addon i've tried yet. To make it even better, i echo the sentiments of others:

1) make the buffs/debuffs bar colors editable (ie, one glance will tell a rogue if its safe to vanish)
2) sound when buffs r expiring....

thanks for listening

Default Re: ElkBuffBars - Ace2 version

I have another feature request (or actually improvement of an existing feature). Bar colors can be set to follow the debuff colors the author has chosen. However, bar background colors for debuffs always remain the set color for that group. It would be nice if bar background colors could follow (a darker version of) the debuff color as well.

P.S. -- Since there are many feature requests in this thread and they are sometimes hard to find, might I suggest adding your project to Jira?
