rBBS, an art framework  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 50100.01
by: zork [More]

Intro
This is rBBS an art framework. It provides basic functionality that can be used by rBBS layout styles to display art, models and orbs on screen. The addon does nothing on it's own. You need rBBS-layouts and probably an actionbar mod to make it work properly. This mod just displays art.
Install
Download rBBS and any rBBS-layout you like. Put both into your AddOns folder and start the game afterwards. Make sure you have any kind of actionbar mod installed that hides the default Blizzard actionbar!
Layouts
Default layouts are provided. They must be downloaded spereratly, like oUF layouts. rBBS is just a framework that needs layouts to display data.

Current available layouts:
Roth UI (Roth UI look alike)
OrbsOnly (Example for player, pet and target orbs)
OrbsOnly2 (player and target orbs only)
Diablo1 (Diablo 1 flavoured layout)
Diablo2 (Diablo 2 flavoured layout)
Diablo3 (Diablo 3 flavoured layout)
Diablo3Adjusted (Diablo 3 flavoured layout, but with WoW 12 button system)
Diablo3NoOrbs (Diablo 3 flavoured layout, but wihtout orbs and the bar texture matches WoW 12 button system)
Aion (Aion flavoured layout)
Backdrop (Example layout showing how to do backdrops)

Ingame menu
Use the rBBS menu gem or the /rbbs slash command to open the menu. You can do the following things ingame: lock, unlock, show, hide, resize, scale, move, reset.

Dragframe
Version 1.03 introduced a new API function, the dragframe. If you want to make use of it create it first in your layout and have other frames parent it. (See example layouts). If you move/scale/resize the dragframe all hooked frames will follow.

Fluid animations
The new rBBS supports the fluid animation system of Roth UI 4.009+. You can choose between, no animation, no animation+classcolored, or choose one of the 23 preset animations.
How to create a layout?
Try editing one of the example layouts first to get a feeling for the files. The example layouts use a config.lua and a style.lua. The config.lua has all the config data for the frames you want to spawn in the style function. Most of the config data is optional. But some has to be set. The config does nothing by itself. The style.lua uses the API functions to spawn frames of different types using the config data. In some cases you want hook the frame to the dragframe. The dragframe can be passed as the third element and is optional.
API
The following API spawn function are currently specified. Each API function can handle a buch of config parameters. Set the config parameters in the config of your style and call the spawn function with the specifc config entry. Check layout examples for more.

An excellent addon, Zork. I have a few issues though.

First off, this specific addon is different than that of your "full version" in the fact that the bars don't update right away, and the transitions are chunky rather than smooth. Is there any way that I could get THIS addon to work in a similar way of the "full version" without actually downloading it? I previously used the full version, but I needed a lot more from my unit frames.

To be honest, I don't know why Blizzard never adopted a similar style of unitframe as that of Diablo. I found my eyes hurt a lot less from not having to dart back and forth during raids; seeing all my spells and my health/mana reserves so easily is a GREAT benefit of this addon. Not only that, but the graphics and animations are so well done they put Blizzard's default UI to shame.

I use this addon in tandem with xperl (ugh I know) and the reasoning is because I prefer their easement of flexibility with their unitframes.

What I want out of this addon (or possibly the full version) is ONLY the working orbs and the bar ARTWORK. I have Dominos, which I actually prefer as well. Just to make it simpler; is this possible to do? No party frames, no target frames, but the same utility as the full RothUI?

If this is possible, I would really appreciate to hear how to do this.

Thanks for this great addon!

New Issue

Thx for the heads up on the action bars... guess I was too tired to see the obvious..

Anyway.. I am having issues with the Aion2 Skin.. 95% of the time the art hides behind my Sunnart skin. reloadui works sometimes but normally not. Yet if I go and turn off some addons it comes back.. then I turn them back on and it is still there in its entirety. Then I zone into a instance or relog and BAM! art is partially missing or all gone save the orbs.

Any Ideas on how to fix that? I would drop the sunnart skin.. but I use it to resize the screen so the addons fivins is in dead space.

Re: Re: Class Color Orb

Thank you very much!

@HellKite: Yes, you need a Bar mod, the bottom frame is only art with the exception of the Orbs being your frame. Bartender does wonders.

  end
After this line
Code:
local player_class_color = RAID_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass("player"))]

Class Color Orb

1) I love your mod, very nice job and thank you for it.

2) Quick question though, The Shaman color is very, very close to the Mana color. I was hoping to change the color of my Health Orb and was looking through the pictures. I enjoyed the Mage class color on the Orb and was wondering if there was a way to manually edit it so I can use that color on my Shaman.

3) Thank you

Any. You can use Dominos for example.

Thanks for updating to the new code with class colors! I am a little disappointed though, because I saw you updated RothUI to be freely movable and was hoping you would do the same here .

Thanks anyway, you rock dude!

Re: Vehicle change

Vehicle is not intended really. This mod is basically no unitframe replacement, just some fancy art. If you want to use that as your unitframes check Roth UI or oUF_D3Orbs.

Vehicle change

Is there a way you could either add, or point me in the direction, of replacing my own personal health orb with my vehicles when I enter one? That's effectively the one feature of this I'd really like to have, otherwise it's been a wonderful tool to use to clean up my UI.

I'm new to editing LUA so maybe you can point me to the right direction?
I'm looking to basically split up the bars by putting my minimap in the center, I would still like 3 rows of 12 buttons each, just with space in between.
I have edited (for private use only) the images to already accommodate what I'm looking for, now I just need to know how to extend the space/width between the two orbs, and also change the strata for the bar texture so the minimap can actually appear on top of it. Thanks in advance for any help you might provide!
