Known Issues/Bugs
I cannot possibly know all of the bugs that might crop up, and will rely on others reporting bugs to me. For a bug to be listed, I have to be able to confirm it, or receive such evidence that even though I can't reproduce it, I believe it exists.

Current Features
These are the current features in Power Bars. If one of these features isn't working, then there's possibly a bug you need to report. Please see "Known Issues" before reporting a bug however.

    • Optional Rune Timers

* Essentially, I don't care if you use parts of this AddOn or all of it. It's free to use and redistribute, and the images are part of that deal. All I want in return is a bit of credit for the work that I do, just as I credit others for the help that they give. A simple link back to this page (if applicable) and a reference to the user Chamenas (or Lulia) is all that is needed. As long as you aren't claiming the work is your own, I'm not terribly bothered.

FAQ

What Is Power Bars?
Power Bars will be a Power & Resource display AddOn. Its purpose will be to offer customizable displays for all Power and Resource systems in the game, this includes (but isn't necessarily limited to): Mana, Rage, Energy, Runic Power, Focus, Eclipse, Holy Power, and Soul Shards.

The frames for these resource systems will be movable, will be offered with various display options "right out of the box" and offer the user the ability to customize them with their own personal images and colors if they so wish.

Why Power Bars?
I'm aware that there are already similar AddOns out there. So you might be asking yourself "Why re-invent the wheel"?. Well, for starters, this is my VERY FIRST AddOn. I've NEVER made one before. Now, I have some experience scripting and coding, but no experience with the WoW API and my Scripting/Coding skills are novice at best. Thus, I have a LOT to learn.

I wanted an AddOn that I could use to personally customize for Holy Power and Soul Shards, since I didn't see any single AddOn out there that did it in such a way as I would have liked. Power Auras did pretty well, but I wanted something a bit better, and something a bit easier to adjust.

However, like most things in life, I really like to share what I make with the world. I didn't want to make a small AddOn that only I would use. I figured: if I'm going to learn how to make AddOns, then I'm going to make AddOns I can share with the community. Thus the origins of Power Bars. The intention of this AddOn is to be an intuitive and easy Power & Resource display management system, offering the user total control and power over how they see their resource and power bars.

It's on my "to-do" list for all the Resource and Power frames. May or may not show up in v0.5, we'll see.

I will see what I can do to put it on a lower level so as to not conflict with other addons as much, but I probably wouldn't see it getting solved until v0.5. However, I'll be looking at a lot of Eclipse stuff for that version, so, lots of stuff to look forward to

Found a bug which caused the Death Knight rune frames to auto-disable, no matter whether or not you had it selected in the options, it would simply disable it. The bug is fixed. Sorry for you DKs out there!

I have a lot of expectations myself, hopefully I can meet them. The comments section here is certainly a good place to make worthy suggestions as well as report problems!

Alright, so the bug took some doing but was a relatively simply fix in the end. What happened was that I took some of the code out which set the proper Eclipse bar image. I put it back in, but there was another small bug related to how the game works in giving me information such that it would set the image, but you wouldn't see it until you began gaining or losing Eclipse, did a /reload or relogged. I managed to fix that too.

Thank you for reporting the error, vlacko, I'm not sure how many people just got frustrated with it and stopped using the AddOn instead of reporting it, but hopefully not many.
