WatchDog  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.25
by: Cladhaire [More]
All click-casting code has been removed. Anyone who used WatchDog for it should instead use Clique, which is much better, cleaner, and based entirely off the WatchDog click-casting code. (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...php?s=&id=5108 )

I repeat. WatchDog is no longer a Click-Casting mod. It is purely a set of unit frames.


Watchdog is a highly customizable set of UnitFrames first and foremost. When logging in for the first time, you'll see a single UnitFrame towards the center of your screen. It will display some information about your character, and windows will pop up as party members, pets and targets show up.

You can open the configuration menu by typing /wdog, /wd or /watchdog, depending on what other addons are installed in your system (/wd conflicts with Wardrobe type addons). There are a number of options available on this screen, and I won't explain them all since they'll be changing quite soon.

The format strings (Target Format 1, Player Format 2, etc.) are what defines what is seen on each frame-- and can be customized per type of frame. Format strings are entered using a system of [tags]. A full listing of the tags is available in the readme.txt file within WatchDog.

Discussion for this addon can be found here: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...6299#post16299


CHANGELOG
WatchDog 1.25

Any updates?

We are less than a week to Burning Crusade and I was hoping WatchDog would be out before I started 5 manning again. I would like to avoid having to configure agUF, because I suspect that once I do, that will be it.

Any news?

I'm stuck using them too =/. The recode should be rather quick, I just need to find time. I'm sorry folks, thanks for being patient.

I will second the use of AGuf until Watchdog is back online, but I'm still checking here for WD.

I'm making do with AG UnitFrames for now, but I really miss WatchDog. I can't wait for the 2.0 version.

You might want to take a look at agUnitFrames. I'm looking forward to WatchDog's port as well, but agUnitFrames is usable until then. Myself, I like to have party members tightly grouped, with none of the fancy avatars, etc. All I really want to see is the party's health status as well as the status of their bufs/debufs that I can cast/dispel. Mana status is also useful, though I want the health bar much bigger than mana bar (so I don't get confused ).

Just comments from the peanut gallery .

No worry, your doing a great job, i'm a big fan of both WatchDog and Clique. But i really cant play with the default ui and everything else i tryed was too big or to charged. Watch dog was simply perfect

Sweet, I'm anxiously awating the update for this fine unit frame mod! Been using it for too long to remember.

My only request is this..... is it possible to have the health/mana color bar have the opacity changed? I run with pretty much solid black background for the unitframes, and also use the reverse option to have grow with depletion. I am finding that as the health bar fills up, the text is hard to read on top of the bright color. All I need is a tint, and if I could lower the opacity of the bars, that would fix all my problems.

Apart from this little annoyance, this mod is great.
You could change it manually, but I don't have plans to make changes like that at this time.

I know you are hard at work on Clique which is fabulous, I was just wondering what I'm gonna do for my unit frames if you aren't
