XLoot 1.0 (Inactive)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.0_final
by: Xuerian [More]

This addon has been merged into XLoot. Please use it instead.


A customizable loot frame

Providing a large array of options to change how loot is presented, as well as allowing you to use Masque or ButtonFacade Skins, XLoot's job is to make looting more functional while still having a better form.


Options GUI available under Interface->Addons or /xloot

The 1.0 XLoot branch will eventually replace the legacy XLoot once all features have been implemented.
The major advantage to using the new version is support for Masque/ButtonFacade skins, as well as custom image-based skins instead of simply coloring the frame.

Skinning

XLoot can use any Masque skins, but skins made to fit rectangles will work better for obvious reasons.
Here's a example of Caith (A masque skin) with Frame transparency set to 0, along with the Legacy skin and a normal background:


If you find a skin that doesn't fit correctly, either tell me or go ahead and make a quick compatibility addon (See below)

About the plugins

XLoot Group/Monitor/Master require the support plugin in order to be used with this version.

I will be re-writing them as time allows to be stand-alone addons instead of plugins, which will work alongside 1.0 natively, and once that happens, they will all replace the old versions I post. I respect that some people like the old look of the frames, and I may try to make a legacy-lookalike skin.

Extending XLoot

It's easy to release skins or tweak masque skins (Or include tweaks in your skin, if you are already a masque skin author!) Skins are really just square textures of a border, like Masque skins.
To let XLoot know about your skin, use: XLootFrame:RegisterSkin(skin_name, skin_table)
To add a tweak for a Masque skin, use: XLootFrame:RegisterMasqueTweak(masque_skin_name, skin_table)
For documentation of skin_table, see the comments near the top of XLoot.lua
Please make sure you have permission to use any textures you include.

final:
Notifies users that "XLoot" should be installed instead, as this is now inactive.
This is only due to the massive fragmentation the addon has experienced over its lifetime, and to prevent more subsequent user confusion.

z27:
Add channel menu to right click of link button
Automatically resize bottom buttons

z26:
Add new skin (Smooth) as default
Add Link Button Visibility option

z25:
Add AutoLoot options for coin and quest items
(This is separate from WoW's autoloot completely and does not change it)
Option default changes (Reset to see)

z24:
Change preview items

z23:
Preview frame in options

z22:
Fix right-click not picking up loot

z21:
Minor performance update
Better compatibility with Masque skins
Proper zhTW localization

z18:
Fixed skin border size not applying
Allowed skins to supply alternate default colors (User must have default color settings for them to apply)
Adjusted color settings for "Legacy" skin
Slightly darkened loot borders when coloring by quality
Added a couple failsafes to try to catch slot errors

z17:
Mostly transparent changes involving packaging.

Added "Highlight" option for rows
Fixed bottom buttons highlighting
Added fixed-width option
Made "collapse looted slots" a option
Added XLootFrame:RegisterSkin and :RegisterMasqueTweak to allow for user made and distributed skins. See top of XLoot.lua
Lost some sanity

This is due to the addon's recent autoloot feature, it's enabled by default for both coin and quest items.

I must say, I deactivated it after a while, it did kinda feel weird to not see those at all - with the game's own autoloot, you at least see them for an instant. Mobs that only drop coin and/or quest items feel especially non-rewarding, since when you loot them, nothing really happens except in the chatbox. Oh, and the quite regular error messages, when the game's autoloot clashes with the addon's.
Could you implement either a) a visual delay, meaning the autolooted items still show up for a second or half in the lootframe or b) disable the functionality in situations where the game's autoloot kicks in anyway?

Coins a no-show

When I loot coins, they do not show up in the Xloot frame. I have seen some 1g or more show up on occasion, is there a threshold to show, can it be adjusted?

Also, my JC daily for elemental goo does not show up when being collected.

Thank you for this report. I also appreciate your narrowing it down, you made it much more precise than reports on Curse managed.

It turned out to be that when you have more than 3 items and loot either slot 1 or slot 2, the latter slots will be stuck as a nonexistent item.

I have fixed it and will update the version here shortly.

I get the BoP confirmation for item #1 automatically, confirm it, click item #2, and it will often loot #3 instead, while still keeping #3 in the loot window, or indeed loot #2, but remove #3 from the loot window.

*edit* Ok, it's not linked to XLoot's autoloot, as it happens with that deactivated as well.
*edit2* Also not related to the game's autoloot, or BoP items for that matter. XLoot simply sometimes removes the wrong item from the loot window when something is looted.

For some reason, when in a raid, all the loot has a red background to it.

Solo looting, everything is fine. But when someone is master looter in a raid, i open the boss corpse and all the icons are just red.

Was this something that was recently added? At first i thought it was just making items red that my class couldnt use, which was kind of useful. But then i realized it was making everything red, which just seems wierd.

I think the button would be great at that size. You could probably make the button on top of the frame before the first item. I guess either way, it is pretty much figuring out to put it the left of the first item or on top of it. lol

Actually I have been thinking about it. I added auto-looting coin and quest items (always/solo/never) already, which I found very nice personally. I'll update the version here in a bit, I do my development on Curse.

If you think I could do better than that, do feel free to give more feedback =). The more ideas I hear for it the more I might be able to do.

If I add a "loot all" button, I was thinking it would be about the size of a item icon, but a tab to the left of the first item which would be where the mouse would snap to.

Well, I went back to do this and realized I already do this. Frame snapping forces the frame to stay in the bounds of the screen.

The best I could do for you is make a option to add a custom bounding offset (ex -100 if your lower ui is 100px high)

But there's no way for me to detect your UI otherwise, unless it alters the viewport.. in which case I think it should automatically, but I haven't checked that.

Red text on item names? I haven't experienced this before, and WoWI doesn't have the version Curse does, which sets locked items to red..

Screenshot?

And glad you like it =)

Boss mods like DXE, Bigwigs, DBM, etc etc all have an option that would allow you to grow the timers upwards. Allowing you to set a lower anchor point, and each new timer goes above the old, instead of below it.


I guess the easiest way to demostrate this would be to ancher Xloot the very bottom of your screen. Go loot a mob that drops more than 1 item and you will noticed you can only see the 1 item. When you loot that item (and you have Collaspe Looted Slots enabled) a new item appears. If you didnt have Collaspe Looted Slots enabled, you would have never known another item was dropped.


If Xloot allowed you to pick a bottom anchor, and then all the loot would be listed upwards, it would fix this problem. This problem is very common for those that use Dashboard type UIs.
Thanks for the explanation.

I can see the issue, but are you sure you would rather it grow upwards instead of simply not snapping itself off the screen?

As far as dashboard UIs, if you have a UI that covers a good portion of your screen you're going to have some problems regardless. My UI is aligned to the bottom of the screen, but doesn't take up much real estate and thus doesn't have this as a common issue, for example.
