Apologies for the late reply.

Buffs (I assume you mean next to the minimap?): core.lua lines 16-20.
Stance Bar: blizzImpBars.lua lines 96-100

Apologies for the exceedingly late reply. Been hella busy with a new job.

Line 135 in modules/blizzImpBars.lua Change the -300 but take note of what number you change too because;
Line 86 in core.lua set it to the same as you have in the above file.

Btw, 21:9.... damn.....

Make sure another addon isn't conflicting because the blizzard option definitely works.

I need people to PM me any issues they've had since 6.2 or post them here. I'm going to be jumping onto a starter account to fix what I can at that level, hopefully getting some game time soon. All aboard the August 6th hype train.

Minimap Issues

I am getting a bug where my Minimap is positioned in the middle of my screen and then moves off to the left over a period of like 30 seconds, any ideas why? and if there is a way I can fix this?

Still trying to work out the definitive cause of this, deleting your Cache folder in the WoW directory solves it. Though I'm unsure as to how long for.

EDIT: "Should" be fixed with 021e but alert me if the issue persists.
Seems to persist. Just happened to me. Deleted cache - happened again. :/

SOLVED:

It seems to be the global strings - especially that one of them. Going to try and find out.

Thanks for all the work you have already put into it. Nice code, well documented, if I may add.

Lightbulb Suggestion: Taller Healthbars

Fist of all - I love the UI. It's actually something that I switched to using instead of my pretty heavy "Pitbull4 + kg-panels + quartz" setup that I've been running since Wotlk. That does say something, no?

May I just suggest this and you can think about adding it? It's been tested by me and proven to be really helpful in pve and pvp alike.

Significant health-bar-text.
  • On player, current health percent if not at 100% with pink colored text if below 35% and red colored text below 20% (to provide a good visual warning when in execute range) to the left and missing HP alighned to the right using the same color (optionally, I toggle this off mostly) .
    33% -240.000
    or just
    33%
  • On friendly targets and groupmembers and raidmembers it shows the missing HP from full if not at full HP.
    -240.000
  • On enemy targets it shows current hp % if not full-health to the left and to the right current/max
    33% 120.000 / 360.000
  • On enemy targets with very high HP (> 1.000.000) I've added a digit to the HP percent (bosses)
    33.1% 1.201.000 / 3.600.000

    Now my frames are a bit wider, so I guess it would have to be the 1.2k option instead of 1.200 when dealing with large and very large numbers. Or one could leave away the maximum value and just show the current HP. It makes for a great moment of fevering down a bosses last percentages or the last few thousand hitpoints.
    33.1% 1.201.000

  • On Mouseover the full information gets shown on any frame ( % current/max )

The result is that no superflous text-clutter is rpesent on any frame if everyone is at maximum health.
So if someone in your group is damaged it really does stick out. You get to see on all your targets and groupmembers how many HP are missing. No guessing, no calculating, no estimate "does a full penance fit?". I find that very useful. And ofcourse on targets you want to know the percent (boss ability, pvp target execute / killshot / hammer...).

I hope to convince you of this, maybe I'll take a look at getting that done "in your addon" and post the result. You might be somewhat faster and do less errors since I'm more of a c++/java/vala coder than lua.

Thanks for all the work you have already put into it. Nice code, well documented, if I may add.
