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.

the normal d3 style has only 5 big button slots, but im not sure if that is still in the style choices, i think it was removed and replaced with the 12 button d3 style

Can you give us one more style : D3 but without "button slots" and numbers beneath them ?

I, for instance, is a bit vision impaired so I tend to use fewer but bigger buttons =) and they don't mesh well with "button slots" in the texture ...

Other than that ..I can say only one thing - beatifull mod.

ooooo toouchy!!!!

I did not realise it would make it unit frames by just adding the features you have in your diablo orbs mod which cover the orbs only. Guess I will have to stick with bastardizing that one for now.

I fail to see how making them fill up smooth adding flags and debuff warning makes it a replacement for unit frames!!!. But whatever!

Hi,

Great addon! Love the things your doing to make it better. Just three questions,

1) would it be possible to make the orbs fill up smoothly like they do in your roth UI?

2) Also would it be possible to addon the same debuff awarness/low health glows?

3) What about icons for flags like PvP, Master Looter, Group Leader, etc.

For me if you were to add those three things it would be perfect.

You didn't really say if you wanted the .tgas or not, so I took the liberty to PM you a link to them anyway.

Also found what seems to be the button-textures.

I'm not sure how you obtained the art, if you masked it from a screenshot or not, but I extracted the UI assets from the Chinese client the other day and if you want them I can zip them up and PM a link.

I can extract them to .tga to preserve transparency.

Here are jpg-versions of what I mean.

Damn, that's great.

Tga versions would be sweet. But those jpgs, are high res enough already to work with. I personaly got the textures from screens I took from the official homepage. The minimap texture is actually from Lineage *cough*... it looks better that the one from Aion and still fits in there, IMHO.

Those pics are really something to work with, thanks again.

I pm'ed you with the download link zork. Here's a pic with exp texture shown, or textures to be correct, since those are 2. One for the background and one for the overlay.



I just read that you want to make an UI out of it - like Roth UI, I suppose. That sounds like a good idea. I have some textures for buttons and buffs, too. And a minimap.
