eXPeritia  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.1 r284
by: Cargor [More]

I've canceled my subscription! Still you can submit patches via GitHub, PM or eMail. If you want to take this addon over, please contact me - or feel free to fork it.

eXPeritia is an experience bar which follows a simple idea: Display the information only when it is needed.
This addon is by default hidden all the time, until you get experience: Then it will fade in for 1 second and afterwards fade out for 10 seconds, so there's enough time for you to look at your leveling progression. Coloring is based on class color or the default orange.
You can enable show-on-mouseover,change the fading times or also disable them completely, allowing eXPeritia to stay all the time visible.
eXPeritia supports also display of your watched faction - if you've enabled a faction to track, eXPeritia will display it on reputation gain.

The bar consists of three indicator lines:
- The tall line is your current experience
- The small left line shows the last experience gained
- The small right line is the end of your resting state

Furthermore there are four text displays which can be configured by choosing from some predefined formats:
- absolute needed xp to the next level / reputation status
- number of xp/rep gains for levelup based on the last gain (e.g. the needed kills or quest turnins)
- relative resting points / watched faction name and standing
- missing xp/rep in the number of Blizzard bar divides

The newer versions come with an integration into the Interface Options Panel where you can change size, class coloring as well as position (you can move it when you're in the addon's panel). Use /exp or /experitia for quickly opening config-panel (or "/exp show/hide" to show or hide the frame and "/exp flash" to fade-in for a short time).

If you're someone who wants a Lua-config and not an ingame one, you can stay only with the core.lua and uncomment "useDefaults".

Planned features:
- Color picker for indicator / background colors
- Alpha slider
- Font size configuration
- more text configuration options (maybe tags?)

The latest version is considered as a Beta release - if you find bugs, please report them.

Hey Cargor. Just wanted to let you know I'm still experiencing this issue with r281. The bar is blank until I gain some XP, or go into the settings and change anything in eXPeritia.

No problem, I will set the fade-out time higher then, should work nearly the same. Thanks for the quick reply

Yeah, noticed that the fading doesn't work and got it fixed on my new version. I will release it tomorrow when some other bugfixes/features are implemented.

The time between fade-in and fade-out is a bit more complicated to handle. At the moment, eXPeritia tells WoW that it should be faded in and after this animation is finished, it will fade out again. To implement a delay between fading-in and -out, I would have to write an OnUpdate-function which I definately did not plan to include.
Maybe I will include it in a future version, but it's only on low priority at the moment - Just want to get the code-rewrite and bug-fixing quickly done.

Thanks for adding the new custom fade timers. But they seem to have no effect at the moment. And I would love to increase the time the bar is shown between the fade-in and fade-out.

Sounds great. I completely understand about the recoding... I do some development of my own (not WoW related) and I've run into the same problem.

Thanks!

Okay, planned for the next major update.

I'll probably come up with this one, as well.

Beautiful addon, Cargor. I just installed it and love it already.

My only suggestions:
1. An option to change the font size of two types of text (especially the main percentage text). When you shrink the bar to less than about 20 height, the text ends up taller than the bar which could conflict with fitting it into some UIs.

2. An option to change the color and transparency of the bar (when displayed) would be greatly helpful. I'd love to place the bar over an empty section of the eePanel I have behind my Fortress bar (emulating a black FuBar layout), but with the very transparent black texture of the eXPeritia bar, it doesn't show at all.

Otherwise, excellent work. Please keep it up.

---EDIT---
One issue I've just noticed: I setup eXPeritia to always display the bar. However, when I first log into a character (or reload the UI) the bar appears without any text or graphic indicators until either I gain some XP, or open the eXPeritia settings.

I know the addon was originally designed to show on XP gains, but with the option to display on mousover and always display, it should be displaying properly off load withou needing to do either of the above.

Maybe you could make the timers accessible in the options.

The idea of the fading bar is awesome, I would just like to have it a little bit longer before it fades away.

Love this mod, keep up the good work.

Re: Two things :)

Yeah, I noticed this behaviour of the rested bar, but I was torn between removing it or just let it go - Well, I think I'll stop it from moving outside the bar in the next update

And disabling the fading ... Hmm, it's strange, because I've created the mod because I wanted a fading xp-bar - isn't it too big when it's always shown?
But you're the second person who wants fading disabled, so I'll likely make an option for it.

Two things :)

Just started using this mod on my mage and it's awesome,
just noticed that the rested bar is shown even if it's on more than 100% which causes it to be far to the right of the mod...

And is there any way to make the mod show all the time?
Didn't find any option to do so and I'd like it not to fade the whole time when leveling (atm it fades in 2-3s after it faded out )

The exact message of the Lua error would be important, but I'll check if I can reproduce it.

Okay, got the problems, too - Update will follow in a few minutes.

When I tried to resize it, the text didn't shift position. Also, I got a related LUA error shortly after loading it for the first time, and couldn't change any of the settings.

Just imagine that the texts could be on another position
Mhh, I don't think that I'll change the screenshots on the addon's page (maybe slightly / adding reputation bar) - the (text-)config-menu is not that exciting that I have to present it as a new screenshot

Only thing that's left is a new set of screenshots so I can see the changes!

(can't log into WoW for a week or so)
