Gladius  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.0
by: Proditor, Rinu
What is Gladius?
Gladius adds enemy unit frames to arenas for easier targeting and focusing. It shows a health bar, a mana bar below the health bar (optional), a cast bar below the mana bar (optional), a class icon to the left side of the health bar (optional) and important buffs and crowd control durations (optional, overlays the class icon). The frame resizes itself to the current bracket (optional).

Gladius uses the 3.0.2 arena unit ids, therefore it'll add units automatically to the frame (byebye targeting macros) and you'll always be able to target/focus the enemies, regardless of if they are added when you're in combat. The cast bars and the buff/debuff timers should be 100% correct.

You can add important buffs and crowd controls in the auralist.lua file. You will have to select a priority for it. If a buff/debuff is already displaying when the spell is cast it'll only show up on the class icon if the priority equals or is higher than the current one displayed.

More features:
Arena enemies targets (optional): displays the class of the arena enemy's current target in a small frame on the health bar to the right.

Trinket status (optional): has a few different display options, but in general it shows if the PvP Trinket is ready for the arena enemy.

Slash commands:
/gladius ui, config, options - displays the configuration screen
/gladius test1-5 - shows a test frame with the chosen amount of test units
/gladius hide - hides the test frame
/gladius trinket - simulates a trinket being used for the first arena target

But.. but.. this is very similar to Proximo and SSAF?
Yes, I simply created this as a learning project for Lua. I actually didn't plan on releasing it but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good and decided to give it a go. I do not expect to start competing with the big boys, but perhaps someone else is interested in using it.

Thanks:
Thanks to Proximo, SSArena Frames and their respective developers for working as both inspirational and informational sources.

Moved to Curse...

For those that were used to downloading updates to this mod from here like I was, it can now be found at Curse. I;m guessing it may get crossposted here after it gets out of beta, but if you want it now, head over there.

Agreed, I'm definitely WAY used to Gladius, I don't know what I would do without "focus on right click."

Any chance this addon is going to get updated to work in Cataclysm? Since skirms are toast and the season closed til Cata, its no big deal that it is broken now, but i've grown to get used to this addon for arenas, hopefully I won't have to find some poor imitation of what it does.

dr tracker: warrior fear is not working i guess the spell id is wrong.
cooldowns: all spec specific cooldowns dont work
there is no space for dr icons/cast bars, cooldowns on sides

Hello,

Would it be possible to please add an option to disable the frames altogether, and use Gladius only for the party announcements?
I already have Shadowed Unit Frames, and don't need Gladius's frames.

Thanks!

This may be a minor complaint, but could you find it in your heart to add a way to reverse the frames. Basically I'd like to be able to check a box or something and have them all flipped horizontally. I'm feeling like it's designed more for the left side of the screen and I'd like it on the right. It's a fantastic addon though.

Hi,

Anyone knows why Gladius causes wow.exe to stop responding while both entering and leaving arena every few games in 3v3 and 5v5? I don't know the reason behind this problem, but I heared a lot about that happening because of gladius scanning smth I dunno really...

There is some problem with how Gladius options handle LSM statusbars. Seems LSM textures are only checked when gladius initializes, so if any other addon that loads after gladius is adding texture to LSM it won't be listed in gladius options at all.

For now i hackfixed it localy in my copy, by injecting texture i want to LSM in gladius file but please look into that.

Clique support broken?

I can't seem to get Clique to work with the version of Gladius that is current on Curse. I just don't see the frames listed in Clique to use. And I really do prefer to use 1 addon to manage all my click casting.

Known issue?

Strange error report.

I was doing arena skirmishes and I was getting an odd LUA error from gladius that repeated itself like 7600 times, I got the dialog box stating one of my addons was severely malfunctioning, but I chose to ignore it and other than the error box, it didn't seem to effect game play.

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\Gladius\Gladius.lua:605: bad argument #3 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)
Time: 11/29/09 14:26:08
Count: 7681
Stack: [string "Interface\FrameXML\BasicControls.xml:<Scrip..."]:18: in function <[string "Interface\FrameXML\BasicControls.xml:<Scrip..."]:4>
[C]: ?
[C]: in function `format'
Interface\AddOns\Gladius\Gladius.lua:605: in function <Interface\AddOns\Gladius\Gladius.lua:588>

Locals: (*temporary) = "TRINKET READY: %s (%s)"
(*temporary) = "Shadowfiend"
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "string expected, got nil"
That's my error.
