Thank you for writing this fine Addon, it has already proven quite useful.

Is there a way to define the values for when TP switches to "medium threat" or "low threat" - mode?

Alright, I installed Special Text 1.4 and didn't bother with the base Tidy Plates since it is stated that it already includes the base files needed. I then installed Clean plates and Threat Plates. Everything looks great so far besides one thing. For some reason with Threat Plates, all nonelite friendly mobs have their Name Plates missing. Disabling Threat Plates fixes this. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

The global saved variable does save character specific settings.

My suggestion would be to just delete the saved variable and its back-up and start from scratch.

Right

But I was referring to character specific saved variables. A lot of mods have character specific variables in addition to account specific variables. Recount, item rack, a couple others. What I'm confused about is, when the saved variables for threat plates are account wide variables, how is it that threat plates works on my rogue, but not on my DK?

I'm not the only one with this issue either. I asked in guild if any of the other tanks used this mod to see if I could get some help before I came here and asked you. One of our tanks decided to download 5.7.5 and 1.6b and try them out. On his paladin, it's doing the same thing. The plates act as though he always has low threat on a mob, regardless of what mode he's in, and the plates never update on that. Then he swaps to an alt, and they work perfectly. Now he's bugging me trying to get them to work, because they really are awesome for a tank.

Re: Tidy 5.7.8

On my rogue, tank mode works properly, as does dps mode. On the DK, dps mode is "broken" the same way tank mode is. All nameplates are normal size until the mob enters combat. At which point the nameplates jump to a default 70% or so scale as if to say low threat, and they stay there no matter what. They also have no green glow. In tank mode, nameplates are normal till the mob enters combat, then all the nameplates jump to a default 125% or so scale as if to say low threat, and they stay there no matter what.

I haven't tried again on my DK now that 5.7.8 of tidy plates is available, I may do that.

What I'm confused about is Tidy Plates and threat plates don't seem to have anything player specific about them. When I go into my DK's folder, in the saved variables folder, tidy plates/threat plates isn't there. It's in the overall account saved variables. How could/why would this be a character specific issue.
Threat Plates does have character specific saved variables. I'd recommend deleting them. It should be in your WTF > Account> Account Name> Saved Variables folder as TidyPlates_ThreatPlates.lua . If you used a previous version of threat plates the saved variables were probably not cleaned up.

I would go ahead and go back on your DK and have nothing but tidy plates and threat plates on. Try toggling from dps to tank and see if anything changes.

If you're in DPS mode on your DK does it still work as intended?

How about tank mode on your rogue?

I think it's time to stop trying.

Nothing came up on bug grabber.

So I went ahead and removed the WTF and Cache folders from the World of Warcraft program folder and loaded WoW with only tidy plates and threat plates on. Nothing new, it still behaves as if there's never a threat change.

Then I load my rogue, and threat plates works perfectly on my rogue. I swap back and forth between dps mode and tank mode and the V bars scale / glow / sqwiggly line appropriately. As far as I know, addon variables/conditions aren't saved anywhere outside of the WTF and maybe the Cache/WDB folder. It's just my DK that is having the issues. I'm pretty sure when I first installed threat plates, I had v5.6 of Tidy plates installed, and I only loaded it on my DK. I didn't actually play my rogue till I had v5.7.5 of tidy plates and 1.6b of threat plates. I suppose that could be the issue, but I'm perplexed as to why that would be the case after loading a fresh WTF folder.

Great mod for DPS mode on my rogue though.

What language is your client preforming on?




Are these videos online? I'd like to see them myself :U.

There may be some hidden reason for your malfunction I'm not certain of.

Re: Re: Tidy Plates 5.7.5 + Threat Plates 1.6b

Originally posted by suicidalkatt
The problem is with v5.7.5 the default theme for Tidy Plates has options. These options don't affect my theme.

Threat Plates has it's own options aside from Tidy Plates and will change according to those options.

Type "/tptp" for Threat Plates options.
Yes, when I said I was loading the default "tank" mode, it was the default settings for threat plates I was refering to. When I aggro a mob, the scale stays at 125% (I assume the scale refers to the size of the V bars, where 125% is the default for low threat while tanking and 75% is the default for high threat)

I assume it's just me, or something, but from what I can tell, threat plates does NOT update the scaling of the V bars no matter what conditions are in place. I've tried every combination of Default Tidy Plate theme, Tank Tidy Plate theme, Tank mode of Threat Plates, and Dps mode of Threat Plates. Every time when I aggro mobs in tank mode of threat plates, the V bars go to the "Low Threat" 125% scale even if I adjust the "low threat" scale to 70%. Every time I aggro mobs in dps mode of threat plates, the V bars go the "High Threat" 70% scale, even if I get another tank to come taunt the mobs off of me and/or if I adjust the "High threat" and "Low threat" scales on dps mode to 125%

I've also tried it with ALL mods (other than tidy plates 5.7.5 and Threat plates 1.6b) off, and blizzards Name plates set to "stacking" (I automatically turned that option off once 3.3 went live) nothing changes though.
