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.

Non-Interruptable Cast Shield

The shield graphic for the cast bar icon is being centered on my screen, all by its lonesome. This occurred right after the 4.2 patch. I am using the most up to date version you have.

Other than that, love the addon.

That's something the default interface does. The health bars of frames which aren't targeting you while you're attacking something or in combat (or something like that) are faded out slightly. It seems the default interface spams an alpha value on it whenever the camera is moved, which makes it impossible to fix (as far as I'm aware) without making it flicker whenever you move.

So, based on further testing I've decided to revert a change from 002.2 to fix this and a few other issues I was having with the default health bar.

Neutral mobs health bar early in the fight to darken. This can be seen on the mannequin in the capital

Good job on a very clean and nice looking nameplate addon. Do you have any plans to implement buff and debuff icons? I've tried using Platebuffs with Knp and it doesn't work all the time. It simply doesn't hook all nameplate frames. I suspected it was because you used SetScript instead of HookScript for the OnShow/OnHide/OnUpdate handlers, but changing that didn't help much.

Either way, your own implementation of whitelist buff/debuff icons to match the theme would be sweet

Totally missed that in the last update. I'm changing the height so frames stack closer but that's blocked while you're in combat. There's no way around it that I'm aware of so I'll have to revert that I suppose.

2x <event>ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED:AddOn 'Kui_Nameplates' hat versucht die geschützte Funktion 'NamePlate12:SetHeight()' aufzurufen.
<in C code>: in function `SetHeight'
Kui_Nameplates\layout.lua:214: in function <Interface\AddOns\Kui_Nameplates\layout.lua:213>
<in C code>: ?


buggrabber throttles the errors. It happens a lot of times.

Oh, right, it'll be showing when you target things while they're casting I expect. You also need to remove line 469:
Code:
np.UNIT_SPELLCAST_START(self, 'target', self.castbar, channel)

np.kui:addEvent('UNIT_SPELLCAST_CHANNEL_STOP', np.UnitCastEvent)
Didn't work -- still had castbars showing up at random times.

Love the new changes; one thing, how can I disable cast bars?

Don't really have a need for them since I use Quartz.

You have to enable the option with /knp gen combat.

Adding the events like that would work, but they're registered & unregistered upon load depending on that setting by slash.lua.
Oh! Did not realize this - thank you!

Anyway, dynamic showing/hiding of frames for entering/exiting combat doesn't work. Any chance for a fix?
