PlateBuffs  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.11.0
by: Cyprias, acapela
4.1 update Acapela (aloft's developer) and Archarodim (Healers have to die) assisted in getting PlateBuffs working for 4.1, please send your thanks to them.

PlateBuffs (PB) displays people's buffs above their nameplates.

Known issues
FAQ:
Q) Will PlateBuffs work on mobs?
A) Yes. but since mobs can share the same name you'll need to target or mouseover the nameplate so PlateBuffs can determine which nameplate belongs to what mob. Once that nameplate disappears from the screen and reappears you'll need to mouseover/target again.
Q) What's the question mark for?
A) It can mean 2 things. 1) We don't know what mob that nameplate belongs to, 2) We don't know what spells are on that mob/player. In both cases you need to target/mouseover the nameplate.
Q) Will PB work with non default nameplates?
A) PB should work with Tidy Plates, Aloft, dNameplates and caelNameplates. PB may or may not work with other nameplate addons.
Q) Can I have specific buff options?
A) Yes. Open PlateBuff's options (/pb) and go to the Specific Spells menu. In there you can add spells and choose always/mine/never show, icon size and cooldown text size. Some spells are added by default to have large icons.
Q) Why do spells blink?
A) Spells will blink if there's less then 20% of the time remaining.
Q) Can you add a clockwise cooldown overlay to the spell icons?
A) Unfortunately the clock cooldown doesn't work well on frames that are constantly moving around the screen. It tends to disappear while the frame's moving and only appear when the icon's perfectly still. So as soon as you move, they move or your camera moves (including breathing up and down motion) the overlay disappears. Sorry.
Q) What do all these spells in the Specific Spells list do?
A) If you're unfamiliar on what spells do what effects, enable the Add Spell Description option on the main screen. That will add a spell icon and spell description to each of the spells. When enabled, PlateBuffs' memory usage will go up around 2MB (memory usage only impacts login/load time, not FPS).
Q) How do I turn off all buffs except those on my Specific Spells list?
A) In PlateBuffs' options, set both "Show Buffs" and "Show Debuffs" to none.

lua error and addon not working

hello, longtime user here of platebuffs and aloft. love both those mods.
with the recent patch i got one lua error with platebuffs.
also it seems there is a direkt problem with platebuffs in conection with aloft.
the buffs/debuffs won´t allways show up (sometimes they do), neither mouseover nor direkt targeting solves the problem. if i use tidyplates - threatplates as nameplate addon platebuffs works much better at the moment, but also there seems some problems with buff/debuff detecting (but very rare).

All happens with: recent wow patch 4.1- german client - aloft 4.3.1-2192 - platebuffs 1.7.1beta

hope this helps, thanks alot for your great work


p.s. the lua error:

Can anyone give me any info on how to get around this if possible?

Thanks!!!
Try going into the Blizzard interface options and click the Addons tab at the top. PlateBuffs should be listed there.
This shows what I mean.

Add those spells to the Specific Spells list and set the Show option to never.

Hey, I recently found this very handy addon, but theres one thing i want to change.

I'd like to turn off the PlateBuff-Timer, because I'm using omniCC which seem to provide timers for this addon.

Thx
