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.

Health Bars Disapear!

Hi Im using Tidyplates with this addon cause Im having some trouble with cast bars not showing spell name on Aloft and a lil trouble also knowing what im targeting at pvp, with tidy Im better at knowing who my target is, the problem is that tidyplates has something similar to this addon but not as great and beauty as Platebuffs and the healthbars disapear when they work toguether and apear when i hit the target again any advice or future fix. Tx Super great addon!

I love the addon, great work! However I ran into a roadblock when trying to configure the way I ultimately wanted. I want to be able to see both buffs and debuffs for the same target, however separated into different areas for easy viewing.

For example, I have setup for my own debuffs and other classes slow debuffs for the normal position over the target. I want to be able to add in all the magic buffs (for purging) an enemy could get on themselves BELOW the nameplate (and the casting bar).

The separation would make it much easier to immediately identify, instead of sorting through the multitude of spell effects already on them in the top area.

Any chance of adding a 2nd (possibly customizable X/Y positioning if not defaulted under the nameplate) configurable area in an update?

Can I turn on dispellable only like that?

*edit*
As in buff type.

So a priest would only see magic buffs. And/or vital buffs like iceblock/bubble/etc.

Would be really helpfull in pvp.

Any word on some options/ways to skin the icons? I could probably "hack" the core files, but that's quite bad concerning future updates, etc.

It doesn't necessarily need to be ButtonFacade. Maybe a border texture we can replace/alter?

Archarodim (author Healers Have To Die) submitted a patch for LibNameplate which may have fixed the 4.1 issue. His patch is in PlateBuffs 1.7.4beta.
