Aloft Alpha  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Aloft-5.3.2-alpha3
by: acapela [More]
This is a "development" version of Aloft (the nameplate addon). Please refer to the main page for that addon for a comprehensive description.

This is an ALPHA release. That means it has not had a substantial amount of testing under all circumstances. By installing this version, you are basically agreeing to help test . Please report any/all bugs with this release in the comments section of this WoWInterface addon page.

This version of Aloft is functionally identical to Aloft-5.2.8-2574.

This version of Aloft is updated to work with WoW "6", aka "Warlords of Draenor", currently in beta test. All modules have been enabled, LUA errors fixed (mainly to do with obsolete spell IDs), and all the basics seem to work on the WoW 6.X PTR. There were not many changes required.

I now have Beta access, so am incorporating that into my testing.

This version of Aloft will probably not work on current live realms... there is at least one new spell that doesn't exist there yet (Storm Elemental Totem), plus several that have been removed.
5.3.2-alpha3 (Warlords of Draenor)
- fixed cast bar LUA error and configuration mode update issues
- updated Ace3 to latest/greatest (r1114)[/color]

5.3.1-alpha2 (Warlords of Draenor)
- updated/fixed "Nameplate Glow>Recently Damaged Only" functionality

5.3.0-alpha1 (Warlords of Draenor)
- for WoW 6.X PTR and WoD Beta

5.0.1-2418 (Mists of Pandaria)
- enhanced to cover monk/brewmaster tanking
- added a check to avoid divide-by-zero problems in the stacked points (combo points/etc) module
- fixed some divide-by-zero problems in threat management (the MoP threat system seems to zero out perdiodically, during fights)

5.0.0-2404 (Mists of Pandaria)
- changed GetNumRaidMembers() to GetNumGroupMembers()
- changed GetNumPartyMembers() to GetNumSubgroupMembers()
- changed (MiniMapBattlefieldFrame.status == "active") effectively to (select(IsInInstance(), 2) == "pvp")
- updated Shaman totem manifest and spell IDs
- added Monk class color (0x00ff96), class name, and associated options, to code and documentation
- added Pandaren race short form
- verified crowd control spell IDs, added Shaman "Bind Elemental" to crowd control spell IDs
- combined obsolete PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED/RAID_ROSTER_UPDATE events into new GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE event
- no changes to Aloft related to GetGuildRosterInfo() (Aloft doesn't use all the arguments), or UnitIsGroupLeader() (Aloft previously updated away from deprecated functions)
- no apparent changes related to GetBattlefieldScore()/GetWhoInfo()/GetFriendInfo()

- TODO: add brewmaster tanking characteristics (for nameplate glow control)
- TODO: hunter trap snakes (specifically "Viper"; E/W Plaguelands and Uldum) and (possibly) DK bloodworms now seem to have names in common with some normal NPCs

4.4.9
- updated the cast warning module to detect animation update interval of 0 and use OnUpdate directly, instead of AceTimer-3.0 (seemns marginally faster/smoother)
- updated LibBabble-Faction-3.0 to latest/greatest (4.3-release32)
- updated Ace3 to latest/greatest (r1057)

4.4.2-2308
- merged in zhTW localization contributed by WoWInterface user aa9012456.

sorry for the delay in responding.

you can disable the Aloft "Enable Startup Message" option (on Aloft's root menu), which will silence all of Aloft's startup messages.

Release: Aloft-4.4.2-2308

a new release of Aloft (Alpha) is available, pending moderator approval: Aloft-4.4.2-2308.

this contains a user-contributed zhTW localization (which overhauls pretty much the entire locale). if you play in the zhTW locale, please help test.

other than the zhTW locale, Aloft-4.4.2-2308 is identical to Aloft 4.4.1-2298.

Re: svn/git

update: just finished the reintegration back into the trunk. have not tested it yet, but everything looks good. get Aloft via the trunk.

yeah, the project is a public SVN project here at WoWInterface ("ADDONS>Projects>SVN Repositories").

i am still in the process of bugfixing and merging back into the trunk at the moment, however (and doing some bugfixing along the way). at the moment, you can access the latest/greatest under the "options" branch.

sadly, i have not been in the habit of tagging releases (just got out of the habit, not an SCM special-ist... BTW, WoWI censors the word "specialist", don't ask me why), so at the moment you will be somewhat at the mercy of whatever i have checked in recently. i want to change that, and start tagging (hopefully with the next release). going to be 100% necessary at WoWAce/Curse, when the time comes, so i might as well get into the habit.

this version of Aloft is now "mainlined", and has been released over on the main Aloft page. i am releasing it here, in parallel, for those who have become accustomed to getting Aloft here. this version will be the last released here, until there is new "experimental" functionality to test (which will have to wait until after the main version is stable).

thanks to everyone who helped test.
Would you mind posting a temporary link to the latest version until WoWI approves it on here?

i will keep you posted.
yep just logged in and it did indeed break

This is a screen shot of that bug I reported about the level being displayed over the skull boss icon. It sometimes can be better for example when I look at the test dummies, sometimes only 1 of them bugs like this and the other 2 are perfect but not all the time.

maybe its your profile, and maybe not. at this point, the cast bar should be updating 20 times a second (based on data polled from UnitCastingInfo() and UnitChannelInfo())... but if lag is at fault here, and Blizzard is somehow generically not providing real cast progress, as a matter of the underlying "WoW client data", all Aloft will do is redundantly update the same coarse-grained progress 20 times a second.

i am reluctant to take over spell cast timing completely, i want to report the values that Blizzard provides (which take into account pushback, etc). so, the next step here will be to try restoring the original Blizzard cast bar (just reskinned). if that works (i.e. if their earlier graphics bugs related to status bar texture tiling are fixed), at that point Aloft will be out of the loop and we will know who to blame .

also, the cast timer does not count down to 0, instead it counts up as the bar fills, this only applies to casted spells, channeled spells do count down fine
i will take a look at these issues as well. both would qualify as bugs. i probably just did the arithmetic on remaining cast time incorrectly (which should be fairly easy to fix). as for boss icon+level text, if you can provide more screenshots (especially on world bosses, even just target dummies), that would be helpful.

thanks for reporting.
