Aloft Alpha  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Aloft-5.0.1-2418
by: acapela [More]
This has been superceded by Aloft-5.0.2 (and later), available on Aloft's "main" page.
-----
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-4.4.8-2386.

This version of Aloft is updated to work with WoW "5", aka "Mists of Pandaria", currently in beta test. Not all intended features are implemented or working yet (primarily, I still need to finish/test features for the Monk/Brewmaster variant).

This version of Aloft will NOT work correctly on the current WoW live realms.
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.

i believe i already have this fixed in development (a user reported it via PM), and the fix should be available in the next release.

always pays to make certain, though. i will go double-check.

sorry for useless nonfeedback post

sorry for useless nonfeedback post.

i kinda dont wanna mess up my current settings if i dont have to, but has there been any changes to the "click on nameplate for targeting" yet?.
last time i was meddeling it didnt like changing the orientation of the "clickable area". wich meant in my case i have to click between the bar and the mobs head, imo for prettyness nameplate should be a bit farther from the head, so one can enjoy the animated npc without an "ugly" nameplate attached directly to his head, but still beeing able to clicktarget them with relative ease. and if not is there any hope of this being resolved in the near future or do we have to wait for blizz to add api or whatnot?. cheers.

LUA Error

Hey, just wanted to let you know of an error I get when bringing up friendly name plates. Not sure where exactly to post it. Please let me know if its just my side. thanks.

Side Note: I've having issues with getting Crowd Control Module working with the icon. I have it enabled but when I blind the target or gouge the target no icon comes up.

Again thanks.

yeah, the version of Aloft currently available from Curse is definitely not functional. i hope to fix that at some point in the future, but i have not gotten to it yet.

however, if you deleted Aloft from your .../Interface/AddOns folder and reinstalled from WoWInterface, and if you deleted/renamed your saved variables, any problems you were seeing should go away...

i may try reproducing this (i.e. installing from curse, then re-installing from WoWInterface).

I'm also noticing a problem with the profiles.
i will do some testing with profiles, and see what happens. it is entirely possible that you will need to reload your UI after changing a profile while in-game.

I'm pretty new to Aloft.
But what I can tell you is that I got it messed up yesterday.
Also cause I couldn't find where that icon came from.
And was 'sick' of the 'trying' so I reinstalled the version from wowinterface (Aloft-4.2.3-2081).
Also was I thinking maybe the curse updater messed with Aloft.
So to be sure, I deleted all the folders in my wow interface folder and I renamed the lua and lua.bak in my saved variables.
After that I still saw the icon on the bottom left.
I have put Aloft on ignore again in the curse updater.

I'm also noticing a problem with the profiles.
I made a new profile with my own name.
When I log in on a 'new' char ofc that profile isn't working at that moment.
I get a lot of bugs at that moment. I go to profiles and set it to the one I made myself and reload. After that its okay.

hello, back again

as i previously wrote Aloft Alpha 4.2.2-2058 and all of your Aloft Beta (up to 4.1.3-2021) didn t produce the problem with missplaces spellicons for me.

4.2.3-2081 introduced the problem to me.
(also did a clean install without previous aloft aloft savedvariables, didn t help)

thx alot, acapela

edit: so, having failed to reproduce this with other people's configurations, i am now asking folks to identify (specifically by version number) whether there was some previous version of Aloft (ideally the Alpha) that does not exhibit this problem. if i can identify some specific code change, i might be able to attempt a fix, even if i can't actually produce the problem locally.

the more recent the working version, the better. i have only one older version of the Alpha up, so perhaps the folks experiencing this problem can try installing that (hopefully that will show different behavior). after trying that, if folks who have experienced this problem want access to even older versions of the Alpha to try, i can provide them. send me a PM with your email address and i will send you a ZIP.

as well, if this problem only occurs in certain places (i.e. arenas), let me know.

I don't have the german client btw. Just the english one
still have not been able to reproduce this problem. folks have sent me their Aloft configurations, and even then, stuff works correctly for me.

could there be a conflict with another addon? if you have Aloft, and only Aloft, enabled and this still happens, it is probably not that. but i can't figure out why it impacts only certain users.

thanks for the quick reply
another suggestion: disable all addons, enable Blizzard default nameplates (i.e. make nameplates show via the default "Names>Unit Nameplates" interface options), and see if it still happens. trying to isolate whether this is an "addon problem", or something intrinsic to WoW 4.0.6. you could also try temporarily disabling dx11, with and without Aloft, to see if that affects the problem.

i enabled dx11 (with "-d3d11" on the command line). i notice some very slight stuttering in complex environments, but this does not seem to affect reported FPS (the little tiny freezes last for the barest fraction of a second, probably the equivalent of a frame or two at the most), and it happens regardless of whether nameplates are showing, and regardless of whether Aloft is enabled. don't know that this can rule out the involvement of dx11...

i will leave dx11 enabled, generically, for a while.
