Tidy Threat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.8
by: danltiger [More]
Tidy Threat is a simple threat monitor which is simple enough for a novice to understand, yet powerful enough for a Tank.

Simple explanation:
While in combat, the status bar grows upward indicating how "hot" the enemy thinks you are. Causing damage or casting heals will raise that level.

If you reach the mark on the thermometer, the enemy will turn and start hitting YOU. As you continue to attack, the bar can continue to rise into the RED area, indicating the amount of threat that you would need to lose in order to shed the attention of the bad guy.

If you're DPSing: Don't go into the RED!
If you're tanking: Stay in the RED!

More Complex Explanation:
The status bar shows your threat compared to the next-highest threat for the rest of your group. If you are the top threat holder, it will also show how much your threat exceeds the next highest. In other words, if you are tanking and the bar extends above the line, into the red, you've got solid aggro.

No mode changes are required for Tank vs DPS usage; The interface is universal. For additional data, players can enable the Detail Window, which will display real threat numbers.

Type '/ttt' into the chat window to bring up the configuration panel, or right-click the Tidy Threat frame.

Re: Re: Tidy Threat question

Thanks so much. That did it.

MMOUI the last time I tried it messed up a good number of mods and I went back to using Curse exclusively and marking ones as favorites on this site that were not on curse.

Thar ya go! You'll have to change that line each time you update, unfortunately.

Have you tried MMOUI for auto-updates (since I assume that's what you use Curse for)? I'm still not sold on supporting two addon sites, and I like WI much better.

Re: Bug

I just uploaded a fix (I hope). I'm pretty sure it was related to saving variables.

Re: Re: Re: Tidy Threat question

Per-character variables are now the standard (Thanks for mentioning it!)

Sorry to hear that things got messed up. I've used MMOUI a few times, and it seemed pretty nice.

I'll keep Curse in mind, but I really don't have enough resources (at the moment) to support two addon sites, and do them both justice.

It might help. I encountered the error (after the update) when using my wife's computer, but I couldn't get it to happen again. I'll take a quick look, and see what I can do. If I can't fix it quickly, I might just roll back the changes from the download.

The errors were all related (fortunately).. and I THINK I fixed it this time. (My 2 year-old was helping me - lol)

If the error comes up (it probably will), use "/ttt reset" to update the variables to the new format.

Just downloaded the latest version and the .toc is:

## Interface: 30300
## Author: Binny
## Title: TidyThreat
## Notes: Threat Monitor
## Version: 1.14
## SavedVariables: TidyThreatOptions

TidyThreat.lua
Panel.lua
Options.lua
===============
This would not be "Per-character". Am I missing something?

The screenshots are misleading or maybe i'm just stupid. I can't figure out how to get a detail window like the one in the top most screenshot of this addon. I can get a little detail window that shows only my place. How do I get the pretty one with the bars?

The bars on the left side of that screenshot are Omen, showing long-time users of it how it would look in Tidy Threat.

No, you're not missing something; I am.. *sigh* I thought I'd changed that, but apparently I either forgot, or rolled back to some earlier build when I was making modifications.
