PhanxTooltip

Version: 6.0.2.43
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 some other tooltip addon. Posts on this page asking how to change the code will be deleted.
Language Support
Compatible with all languages. However, I didn't test in 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) from Bugger.

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 Better Battle Pet Tooltip.

Version 6.0.2.43
  • Updated for WoW 6.0
  • Fixed wild pet creature type detection
  • Improved compatibility with other addons that color the tooltip border

Version 5.4.2.34
  • First public release

Nevermind, I think it might be related to some custom code. I had moved the faction text and apparently didn't check properly what I was moving. Sorry to waste your time I'll disable that code and keep an eye open if it happens again.

A weird side note: Just logged on and first had no world unit tooltips whatsoever (strange, but hovering unit frames worked fine). Disabled PhanxTooltip addon, Blizz' tooltips worked fine, re-enabled PhanxTooltip and they were back. Strange.

Either way, the first person I found produced the bug Normally its more of the rare kind, something along one in twenty or so. Happens in raids, at the temple, in the open world - couldn't see a pattern there.


Code:
GameTooltipTextLeft1:GetText() => "|cffffffffMithrandyr|r"
GameTooltipTextLeft2:GetText() => "|cffffffff90|r |cffeeeeeeBlutelf Priester|r"
GameTooltipTextLeft3:GetText() => nil
GameTooltipTextLeft4:GetText() => nil
GameTooltipTextRight1:GetText() => nil
GameTooltipTextRight2:GetText() => nil
GameTooltipTextRight3:GetText() => "|cffff2020@ |cff33ff33San die Sanfte|r|r"
GameTooltipTextRight4:GetText() => nil
I'm on a Mac, using BetterBattlePetTooltip as well and have TipTac/ItemTooltipCleaner installed but disabled. There's also custom info on talents/role but that's just adding lines and shouldn't conflict.

It shouldn't be possible for it to go on the right... how often does it happen? Does it seem to happen only in certain situations (fior example: only on enemy players in BGs) or not? Do you have any other addons modifying the tooltip? Can you post a screenshot next time you notice it happening?

I sometimes have the situation that the "@ Targetname" text is placed on the right hand side of the tooltip, which usually collides with previous lines of text. Is this behavior known/intended?

Not interested, sorry. Any standalone addon that adds this (or any other info) to the tooltip should work fine, but I don't know of any offhand.

May I request a specialization display in the tooltip? Or any info on how to go about adding so for a personal preference? Really great addon though, thanks for the update!

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.
