Reflux  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.10
by: Kagaro [More]

Reflux is a small lightweight profile manager. With the coming of dual specs, and people building ui compilations. I built this little manager. Its goal it to allow you to easily switch all your addon profiles in one fair swoop. For Addons that don't support profiles it emulates a profile. All emulations are done by the user and none come pre configured out of the box. The user chooses if he/she wishes to emulate a profile for any addon. Emulation is not needed for any addon that uses Ace2/3DB as profiles are built in.

As ALWAYS be sure to BACKUP your WTF folder before using.

Example of usage

This example assumes your setting up a brand new profile.

/reflux create MyProfile

This will switch all current ace db based addons to this profile and setup the emulation profile.

Now i configure a bunch of stuff and notice my unit frames dont have support for profiles... Well i can fix that! First i need to check the .toc for my unit frames in this case StufUnitFrames. I find the #SavedVariables: StufDB line in the toc indication that is where it saves its configuration information. So now in game I simply add that saved variable to reflux

/reflux add StufDB

Now reflux will emulate a profile for Stuf. I finish up configuring my ui. Im pretty happy with it. Now that im done I need to save the emulated profile

/reflux save

Now my emulated profile has been saved. Lets do a quick reload to ensure our data is saved to disk.

We are done! now my ui is setup with my new profile. Lets go create another profile for my alt.

/reflux create MyAltProfile

my screen is now back to initial state all un configured. My alt is a different class so this isn't a big deal. (Future enhancement will be to copy a profile set so you can create a base config then tweak). Now i do more work...

What about stuf? Do i need to add it again? Nope its already been emulated so no need to add it again.

Now I save my new profile

/reflux save

Now I switch my main back to its original profile.

/reflux switch MyProfile

bingo my ui is now all set back up.

I log into my alt and type

/reflux switch MyAltProfile

and now my alts ui is all setup.

If you want to clear out all your reflux data /reflux cleardb and bingo its all gone. You ace profiles are still there, but the emulated profiles will be cleared.

Type /reflux to see a list of commands.

New Commands
/reflux addons [profile]
Switch addon set to what was saved int he profile. Due to technical reason you need to switch afterwards

/reflux save now optionally takes an 'addons' flag to store addon state
so /reflux save addons will save current addon list in the emualted profile.

/reflux copy [target profile]
will attempt to copy the target profile into your current profile. this will reload the ui when complete.

/reflux delete [profile]
will delete a profile. Please note you can NOT delete the current active profile.

/reflux snapshot [profile] (EXPERIMENTAL)
will create a new profile and scan each addon copying thier current profiles to the new one.

Reflux does not switch to a profile for a specific character.

Do I have to manually switch profiles on character logon ?
No it doesnt switch profiles per char, it just indicates the last profile you switched to via reflux. ther eisnt a reason to change profile per char, as when you do a switch on that char thats the profiles setting for that toon.

Active Profile is DPSui
DPSui is an available profile.
Nothing is being emulated
Addon state is not being saved.

So I can't get it to save anything or emulate anything. I know that the vast majority of my addons have profiling available so how do I fix this?

When you created DPSui it set all the addons that have ace2/3/rock support to that profile. Saving, is only for Emulated profiles.

Much better use of Reflux

Just like many of you guys in here, I like to use UI packages and make my own adjustments.
Problem is that it can be confusing and you easily forget where you made all your changeds in which addon.

But I was struck by luck when I found this post on: http://huntsmanslodge.com/6538/a-few...-on-reflux.htm

His explanation of how to use reflux when you want to save all your hard work or save your changes to an excisting UI is by far much better than the author of reflux.


Now… let’s say you want to put your own personal touches on my UI package. No problem. Here’s what I suggest you do…

Type in:

/reflux create NewProfileName (e.g., /reflux create LotharUI)

After doing this, your screen will go back to the crazy-ass layout that you had right after you installed my UI. Don’t fear though… next step is to copy my settings into your new profile and them use them as a foundation for making your changes. You can do this by typing:

/reflux copy GarUI

What that did was import all of my profile settings into your new profile. Now you can go ahead and make all of the necessary customizations to my UI, while still leaving the GarUI profile intact.

Once you’re happy with it, go ahead and type:

/reflux save

Now you’ll have a custom version of my UI saved with your own unique profile name. If you ever decide you want to go back to my settings for whatever reason, just type:

/reflux switch GarUI

Alternatively, you could just load my UI and make any changes you want, then save it. The problem with that is… if you ever wanted to refer back to my original settings, you will have overwritten them. This is why I think it’s best if you just create your own unique profile and import my settings into it, then go from there.

Alright, so now you’ve taken my UI and made a few changes of your own. Now it’s time to configure it for the rest of your toons. To do this, just create new profiles for your alts by typing in the create command again:

/reflux create YourAltProfile (e.g., /reflux create KronosUI)

Once you’ve created the profiles for your alts, just switch back to the profile you created for your main (e.g., /reflux switch LotharUI). Now your main is back in business, so now it’s time to go configure your alts…

Next step is to log in with your first alt. After login, your screen will look all screwy again. The first thing you need to do is switch to the alt profile you created for this toon (e.g., /reflux switch KronosUI).

After you’ve switched to your alt’s profile, then import the settings from your main profile (e.g., /reflux copy LotharUI). Now you can go through and make changes to your alt’s UI, using your tailored version of my UI as the starting point.

With this method, you’ll be able to utilize many of the core settings, yet be free to adapt this layout to other character types.

Hopefully this post makes some sense and helps you with managing multiple character profiles.

They infact havent been 'wiped' you just need to go back and change which profile each mod is using. Normally this is 'Default'

How do I remove the additional two copies from the profile?
Each emulation is added with the name of the sv as the key so etxra should not matter.
