PhanxTooltip
Version: 5.4.2.34
by: Phanx [More]
Simple tooltip modifications.
  • Border is colored by item type/quality, NPC reaction, or player hostility/class
  • Player names and classes are colored by dead/tapped/class
  • Hostile NPC and player levels are colored by difficulty
  • Target names are added to unit tooltips
  • Health bar is moved inside the tooltip
  • Icons are added for raid targets and linked items, spells, and achievements
  • PvP status moved from its own space-wasting line to the level/class line for hostile players, hidden for friendlies
  • Useless text (vanity titles, faction names, coalesced realm descriptions, fake level info on wild battle pets) is hidden
  • Coalesced realm names are marked with the traditional asterisk (*); permanently connected realms are not marked
  • Background and border colors are fixed (no more ugly navy blue background on mailboxes etc.)
IMPORTANT: There are no options, and none will be added, so don't ask. If you don't like how this addon works by default, and don't know how to change the code yourself, use a different tooltip addon. Posts on this page asking how to change the code will be deleted.

Language Support

Should work in all languages. However, I didn't test in (and don't speak) every language, so if something looks strange in your locale, please post a comment with a description and/or screenshot of the issue so I can fix it.

Feedback

Post a comment. If you are reporting a bug, please first make sure you have the latest version from this page, and then include detailed instructions I can follow to reproduce the bug myself, whether the bug still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the accompanying error message (if any).

Fonts in the screenshot are Grad (serif) and DejaWeb (sans-serif). Border and bar textures are from another (private) addon. Colored "collected" text in the battle pet tooltip is from BetterBattlePetTooltip.
Version 5.4.2.34
  • First public release

I have no idea what "the mary sue protocol" is, but as long as the addon uses the standard GameTooltip:AddLine API method, it will work with PhanxTooltip. If it tries to replace existing lines or completely replace the tooltip, it will probably not work with PhanxTooltip. Just try it and find out.

Does this work alongside rp addons using the mary sue protocol? I know tiptac had a hard time with it, and when I would mouse over people while having MRP installed, it would flicker between the addon tooltips and the MRP ones.

Yes I did, sorry for the false alarm.

Oddity

The health bar overlaps the other text in the tooltip unless I go off them and then back on. Any ideas?

Been trying to do the same, (and failing). I can't get the border right, mind if I tear yours up some?

Yeah, I said goodbye to TipTac a long time ago. There was some bug that wasn't getting fixed at the time (I don't recall what it was) and the addon did a lot more than I needed, and didn't do all the things I wanted, so I just wrote my own and hardcoded all the settings I wanted. I've been using it for a couple of years now... figured I might as well publish it.
