KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 260
by: Kesava [More]

Prettier nameplates with auras.
Configurable through interface options (/knp or /kuinameplates).

Notable features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points!
  • Tank mode!
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Cast & incoming healing warnings, useful for PVP (disabled by default, check "Show cast warnings" in options)
  • Other things!

I have a problem/question!

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

If you have any issues, feel free to PM me, post it in the comments on this page or on Curse, or on GitHub (but check through that list to make sure it's not already there, first).

Monochrome

Hello, I really like this addon but one thing that I would need for it to fit in my UI is a monochrome setting. I can't really find the option for it in the LUA files so can you lend me a hand?

It should be possible for you to get the font to look right on trivial frames. If you rename the custom-rename-me.lua to (predictably) custom.lua, look for this line:
Code:
-- Place code to be performed after a frame is shown here.

And put this code after it:
Code:
    if frame.trivial then
        local name,_,style = frame.name:GetFont()
        frame.name:SetFont(name, KuiNameplates.fontSizes.name, style)
    end
Then completely restart wow (if you had it open), the names on both types of frames -should- be the same size. As per keeping everything pixel-perfect those frames aren't scaled in any way - it's just because the names on trivial frames use a 1 point smaller font size.

But concerning -frame- sizes, as you read in the other reply I can only make them look the same. The click boxes would still be the smaller size because Blizzard doesn't let us control that without it sometimes breaking, so it'd result in really bad UI feedback.


Thanks!

Hiya, I have a quick question if you don't mind. :>

I noticed in 5.1, Blizzard redesigned the nameplates so that low health-type mobs (like little mobs that have way less health than normal mobs of the same level) have really small nameplates compared to everything else. As you can see in my screenshot, I'm using a pixel font on my nameplates, so this new feature distorts the font size and it doesn't look very good.



So I was wondering, is there anything I may have missed in the options (or even the LUA) that would allow me to disable this and have all my nameplates be the same size? If there isn't currently an option, is it something that would be easy to fix?

Also, thanks for making an awesome addon. I was using dNameplates prior to 5.1, but 5.1 broke them and the author wasn't updating. Eventually stumbled across KuiNameplates and now I have no intention of switching to anything else. :>

Edit: Gah sorry, I totally didn't realize someone asked the exact same thing already. ;_;

There's an option for that in the update I just uploaded (3.5.2). Should be up an hour or so from this posting.

Thanks!

hi kesava
is there a easy way to remove level and health, i try use hide() to "frame.level" and "frame.health.p", but level still display
maybe add a option to hide them would be a nice choice

anyway, thanks for this awesome addon

You only need to make a folder, a .toc and a .lua file to "make" an addon. Either way I can describe how it works to you in a PM when that update actually comes out.

I'll look into improving that.

yes, sad... okay - i must look what i can do, this "minions thing" is dumb shitty xD


other things i found out, when a plate is releasing, the healthbar starts at 0% and goes fast to 100%, that looks not good, can you change that? to always 100% first?

I won't enforce that, you could put the code wherever you like (as long as it's included by an addon). You could make an addon called Kui_Themes and put it there if you like.

Addons can't change the size of interactive things in combat, so it would sometimes work, and sometimes not, which isn't great.

Kesava, can i give minions the same plate as the normal targets? because of this stacking problem, the "carrier" frame is alot smaller and i think, this is the main problem of this...

to outsource the theme data in another file is a dream for me, than i can update your nice addon without lose my theme... but please make it like this structure:

wow / interface / addons / kui_nameplates / files
wow / interface / addons / kui_themes / theme_x / files

I'm not going to full on support skinning because, as Anja says, this addon is pretty much already a theme itself - my theme - and there are other nameplate addons created purely with the goal of being themeable, like TidyPlates. It's a lot of work for me to implement something which other addons already provide.

However, I'll need to do this anyway, so I'm going to be adding a Post-function handler. More on that when it comes out. Really it's just to let me clean up the code a bit, make it somewhat modular so all the code isn't in 1 file as it is now, but it should also be possible for people like yourself to hook into it and modify things in the nameplates after critical events (creation, OnShow, etc).

yes but kui nameplates theme is from the kui layout so why he need to implement theme support? he doesnt need... sadly

my nameplates looks very diffrent, but i love my own style



but my problem now, the small minion plates are have a smaller carrier frame, so they stacked all too much inside, more and more problems coming to this blizz update, i hate those updates want the minions plate the same look like the normal plates

here the minions stacking problem:


another "problem" is the chatbubble of prat

the positioning with kui nameplate (hope the problem is in the original file also) is not good

Since this update was a bit rushed that line's repeated around line 412. You'll have to change it there as well. As you noticed, it's because the positions have to be changed around in order to display for trivial mobs properly.


Thanks!
ok thanks alot
