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.

I spontaneously canceled my WoW subscription (as I do from time to time) and I don't know if I ever come back. That depends mostly on my free time and mood for addon development (both are very low at the moment).
This means that I won't update my addons anymore - except for maybe bug fixes. I'll probably be still around for answering comments and providing help.

All of my addons are available open source and I'd be glad if someone wants to contribute to them - best via submitting patches/pull requests to the GitHub repo. if you want to take over one of my addons, please drop a PM. In general, you can re-release them (or parts), but I'd like to get credit.

Untested, but I would try it after line 31 (SetFontObject):
Code:
local font = CreateFont("eXPeritiaFont")
font:SetFontObject(GameFontHighlightSmall)
font:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 10, "OUTLINE")
font:SetShadowOffset(1, -1)

I try to update all of my addons for cata, but my time is extremely limited since I started university this week - I hope, this works out when things settle, otherwise I may quit WoW / addon development altogether or have to limit my maintained addons ...

EDIT: That being said, just a reminder: Everyone can modify or take over my addons, as long as credit is given.

Hi Cargor, do you still remember this addon? Since 4.0 has already come, will you update it?

I won't submit my addons to WoWMatrix, because of the old "WoWI + Curse vs. WoWMatrix" debate, in which I fully support WoWI's position, sorry

Ha yeah, I'm currently thinking about quitting WoW again until Cataclysm, too. I rerolled on another server some months ago, but ... you know ... it gets boring very soon if you played for so many years.

Yeah. That's alright. Do what you gotta do man. I personally won't get to use it, but I think it's neat if you can get it working again. So I'll check back from time to time to check up on it, and share the link with others.

If you update, you should update on WoWMatrix. It's alot safer than this site is to be honest.

I quit WoW again, so I'm not currently playing. I will play again sometimes when the new expansion comes out. Just played this game for too many years, and need a fresh start.

There is no LUA Error for this one, it's just not working period. I put it in my Addon folder like I do with any other addon. I read your description, so I knew how to open it's config, when I type /exp, or /experitia, nothing happens. It's as if it don't exist.

I won't add new features at the moment, because I got a lot of other stuff to do at the moment, but if it is broken with the patch, I would release a fix to make it ready for 3.3.

As you can guess from the other post, it would be nice to get the error text from you

Question

I'd like to ask, is this gonna be updated for patch 3.3.0? If not then I hope somebody picks up on it, because this is a sweet idea for an EXP bar, and I like what I read about it, and what I see in the screenshot.

Thanks!

Then I'm gonna try and implement this XP bar into my UI and see what happens

If I come across any bugs I report back here (besides the mentioned problems, I do have a few lvl 80 chars). I will try and provide screens whereever I can to clarify the problems and stuff.

Yeah, uhmm, partly. I can't really test it, because I'm not playing regularly and don't have a lvl 80 char. But if you report bugs, I'll try to fix them.

Whether I'll add new features to it or rewrite it completely ... well, can't say at the moment

Is this bar still under development (i.o.w are U rewriting it?).
I know you are still active as I can see by your other addons.
