Buffology
Version: 1.1b
by: Mischback [More]
..:: Buffology ::..

Buffology is a player-buff-mod, which enhances the default-Blizzard-Buff-Interface. The addon handles only player's buffs, debuffs and weapon-enchants.

It comes with two main features:
  • move buffs/debuffs to any position
  • filter buffs

These two features are linked closely and set up as follows:

You can create anchors (or buff-frames) which can be positioned on the screen. Buffs/Debuffs can be filtered to these anchors, so they will be displayed in the specified position.

This can be configured with an ingame-configuration menu, as you see on the pictures.

Please note: Buffology collects the buffs for you, but you can only filter buffs, you have already seen ingame.


..:: Configuration ::..

/buffology menu shows the ingame-configuration. You will see two buttons on the bottom left side, labeled "Frames" and "Filter".

To set up a new frame, select "Create new Frame" from the dropdown-box. You will be prompted to enter a name for the new frame and can then set some options, like the position, growth-directions, columns and paddings.
To configure an existent frame, simply select it from the dropdown-box.

On the filter-tab, you will see a list on the left side, which contains all buffs/debuffs you already have seen ingame. Select the one you want to filter by clicking it in the list. Then select the frame, this buff/debuff should go into from the dropdown-box in the upper right corner.
Click save to submit the assignment.

All settings are stored in your character's SavedVariables-file, so you will have to set it up for all your toons. The list of buffs/debuffs is handled in your account's SavedVariables, so you will collect those with all your chars.


Buffology comes with ButtonFacade-support. Without it, the buttons look just like Blizzard's default buttons.
Skins are applied from the ButtonFacade-menu.



..:: Localization ::..

I have already prepared the addon for being localized. If you want to contribute, leave a message with translations of the following strings:
Code:
['caption_frames'] = 'Frames', 
['caption_filter'] = 'Filter',
['frame_dropdown_title'] = 'Select frame to configure...',
['frame_create_new'] = 'Create new Frame',
['frame_create_text'] = 'Please enter the name of your new frame...', 
['frame_double_text'] = 'This name is already used!', 
['frame_create_ok'] = 'Accept', 
['frame_create_cancel'] = 'Cancel',
['frame_anchorPointCaption'] = 'anchorPoint',
['frame_relativeToCaption'] = 'relativeTo',
['frame_relativePointCaption'] = 'relativePoint',
['frame_xOffsetCaption'] = 'xOffset',
['frame_yOffsetCaption'] = 'yOffset',
['frame_xGrowDirCaption'] = 'hor. growth direction',
['frame_yGrowDirCaption'] = 'ver. growth direction',
['frame_columnsCaption'] = 'columns',
['frame_xSpacingCaption'] = 'hor. spacing',
['frame_ySpacingCaption'] = 'ver. spacing',
['frame_saveButton'] = 'Save',
['filter_dropdown_title'] = 'Select frame for filtering...',

..:: Credits ::..

Buffology is inspired by SatrinaBuffFrames by Satrina. This addon has served me well throughout WotLK.
Some of my code is a rewrite of Blizzard's default-interface with some tweaks here and there.
1.1b
* temporary weapon-enchants are now immediatly visible

1.1a
* "You should follow your own documentation! You should test on all available chars!" Thx to Methyl for pointing me on this!

1.1
* added option to adjust the timeformat. Possible is '5m' or '05:23'
* time-based sorting is working, buffs are sorted by their duration

1.0b
* added option to adjust the size of buffs/debuffs per frame
* no clue yet, what is causing some BF-skins to work and others don't... Will look into this again

I am messing around with the new way buffs are handled... First steps are done, but there are some problems...
I don't think there will be a 4.0.1-version, but 4.1 should be available.

really want to get this to work. Typing /buffology menu brings up the menu but pushing any of the buttons yields nothing. I dont get any drop down menus just a black box. No other addons were causing this as I turned them all off to check if this was the problem. Any help?

Really nice work

Been testing this out for the last 15 mins work really well but if im not wrong you cant create a debuff frame for you target or am I wrong? If you can I would scrap my outdated sbf forever

Btw if I might suggest a feature it would be nice with some kind of profiles to save your setting so you can load your layout on diffrent chars.

Btw if worked for me atleast.

I can confirm this. I've set up an extra bar for short time buffs. This bar sits in the middle of the screen an SHOULD grow first left and than up. Settings:

hor. growth direction: LEFT
ver. growth direction: UP
columns: 2

With this settings the buff bar should be like this:

6 5
4 3
2 1

Instead, it looks like this:

2 1
4 3
6 5

I would like to suggest a few options:

1. Changing the font
2. Changing the alpha visibility of bars.
3. Make buffs in bars unclickable.

Thank you for the great work! :-)

SBF would not sync with button facade for some reason no matter what I did to global options, etc. I am very picky with my UI and it needs to look good, haha.

This was a great replacement Only thing I can suggest is adding an option able to switch the timer font and color - not sure if this was mentioned.
(Figured out how to switch the font from editing but not color)

edit 2: my caith theme isn't staying when i re-log.

I'm having issues getting my new buff frame to grow vertically upwards. I set the vertical growth direction to "UP" instead of down and saved and reloaded UI but it still grow's downwards after it reaches the maximum number of buffs per row.

Has any headway been made on the issue with certain BF skins looking severely distorted? I am looking forward to using this addon as soon as the apathy skin is functioning properly.

It's not really a question of how I prefer it, but how I implemented it.

Let me explain: The settings are stored in your character's SavedVariables-folder. If I would implement a profile-system, I would have to store them in the Realms / Accounts SavedVars-folder. That would mean, that you would have to load all settings for all chars to find the right ones for your current logged in char.

And since I have performance in my focus, this is not what I want to do.

I provided a neat solution below, it is done in less than one minute. So why do you want a profile-system?

Anyway, if you want the same settings for all chars, you can do the following: While you're not logged into any char, copy your Buffology.lua from
