KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 228
by: Kesava [More]
Prettier, pixel-perfect nameplates with auras. Configurable through interface options (open with /knp or /kuinameplates).

Class colours on hostile players can be enabled in the default interface options, under "Names" - check "Class Colors in Nameplates" at the bottom right.

If you're having issues with nameplates being in incorrect locations or being unclickable, first try unchecking the "Fix aliasing" option in configuration.

More up to date versions can often be found on Curse. Please try using that version before reporting a bug.

Current features:
  • All of the default nameplate features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points
  • Tank mode - recolour health bars when you have threat (enable by checking "Enable tank mode" in options)
  • Customisable display of health for friendly or enemy units
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Automatic toggling of nameplates when you enter or exit combat (enable by checking "Auto toggle in combat" in options)
  • Cast & incoming healing warnings, useful for PVP (disabled by default, check "Show cast warnings" in options)
  • Configuration profiles
Health display patterns:
The text to display for health on different frames is determined by two simple patterns: one for friendly frames and one for neutral and hostile frames. These patterns can be changed in the options dialog (/knp). They must make use of specific conditions and results, in the following format:
condition1:result1;condition2:result2;condition3:result3;
There must be at least one condition (and one result). Any other conditions are optional.

Possible conditions are:
"=" When the unit is at maximum health...
"<" When the unit's health is less than maximum...
"=<" When the unit's health is either less than maximum or at maximum...
Possible results are:
"m" ... Display their maximum health (i.e. 123.4k).
"d" ... Display their health deficit (i.e. -46.5k).
"p" ... Display their health percentage.
"c" ... Display their current health (i.e. 76.9k).
"b" ... Display nothing.
The patterns used by default are:
Friendly units: =:m;<:d;
Which means:
When the unit is at maximum health:Display their maximum health;
When they're below maximum health:Display their health deficit;
Hostile units: <:p;
Which means:
When the unit is below maximum health:Display their health percentage;
Planned features:
  • Frame blacklisting
  • Stuff I can't remember
228
* make auras significantly more reliable
* change tankmode uiname to "Threat", in anticipation of additions to its config page

* add options to change reaction colors
* split "don't fade units at low health" into two seperate options for hostile units and friendly units
* fix "fade all" doesn't work consistently when faded alpha is set to 0%
* fix castbar sometimes fading out on newly shown frames where it was inappropriate
* fix logic error in kui frame fading code which may have caused some problems with repeated frame fading
* add upper limit to name width (using default layout) to prevent ridiculous overflows
* remove kui_nameplates_absorbs because that was nowhere near ready and shouldn't have been pushed anyway, whoops
* bump kui minior

* fix lua error when cast time display is enabled but name is disabled
* reduce name text jiterry-ness using centred layout
* add option to only use frame glow as threat glow (hide it when there's no threat)
* add option to show auras on trivial units

* reposition castwarnings to fit with new layout
* add option to use left-aligned layout, similar to the pre-223 layout (in /knp > general)

* add spark to castbars.
* make castbars fade out rather than instantly disappearing.
* cast time display is now disabled by default.
* change layout of healthbar text; names are no longer truncated.
* change layout of castbar text; spell name is no longer truncated.
* change default font to Expressway Rg Bold. Works better at smaller sizes in WoW.
* change level text for bosses to "Boss".
* remove option to colour unit names. This can be achieved with a small custom.lua modification.
* remove maximum cast time from castbar text (only current time is shown now)
* remove Accidental Presidency from Kui_Media.

please tell us the lines to fix this problem

not easy to locate the problem - because of no error warnings :/

-- okay the regionorder is changed,...

Code:
--  WoW 5.1
local regionOrder = {
	[1] = "threatTexture",
	[2] = "healthBorder",
	[3] = "highlightTexture",
	[4] = "levelText",
	[5] = "skullIcon",
	[6] = "raidIcon",
	[7] = "eliteIcon",
        --[7] = "nameText",
}

Thanks a lot

Long life to KuiNameplates !

Edit :

Btw I don't know if kui uses the Ace libnameplates but it has been updated for 5.1 a few hours ago :

http://www.wowace.com/addons/libnameplate-1-0/


Maybe it'll help.

1. I might be able to debug that if you tell me what resolution and uiscale (/dump GetCVar('uiscale')) you use, if uiscale is enabled. Keep in mind you have to reload the ui after enabling fix aliasing otherwise plates will just stop updating properly.

2. I believe they don't have nameplates in the default UI either. Nameplates were disabled for "trivial" units, and those seem to be sort-of-incorrectly flagged as trivial. I can't do anything about that, it's a Blizzard thing.

been using this so far without much problems.

2 issues I have faced:

1. When I turn on 'Fix aliasing', KNP is no longer appearing on top of character, it is some how move to bottom left of the character.

2. When doing Tillers farming, the mobs that 'proc' in the planting process have no nameplate at all, only name.

I have use default settings for all except removing 'fix aliasing' and having "=:m;<:c;" for both nameplates. Any idea what went wrong?

That's not possible with how it's coded at the moment and it'd take a lot of explaining to add it manually. Also you'd need to modify it again after every update.

often (but not always) when I rotate the view by holding the right mouse button and moving my mouse, the nameplates switch between the default and Kui nameplates.
I've fixed this in the next version. Something in 5.0 borked its detection of a default nameplate.

I have experienced an issue with Kui - often (but not always) when I rotate the view by holding the right mouse button and moving my mouse, the nameplates switch between the default and Kui nameplates. Here are the pictures:

Then I rotated the viewport back and forth (and killed an ogre in between - has nothing to do with the bug) and got this:

As can be seen, I use the latest LUI, with disabled LUI's nameplate module.

	frame.name:SetJustifyH('LEFT')

	frame.name:SetHeight(8)

	frame.name:SetPoint('LEFT', frame.level, 'RIGHT', -2, 0)
	frame.name:SetPoint('RIGHT', frame.health.p, 'LEFT')
but i need a little modify,
i want use FontA when unit is NPC and use FontB when unit is Player,

devilArt: At the bottom of layout.lua, near line 1428, there should be code which looks like this:
Code:
-- frame
width  = 110,
height = 11,
It may be a little glitchy but you should be able to change the width and height by changing, obviously, either of those numbers. Addons can't reliably change the size of nameplate's click-boxes, however, so those won't be affected.
