Perl Classic Unit Frames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.08

If you like this mod, please vote for it!

What is Perl Classic?
Perl Classic Unit Frames are a complete rewrite of the original mods by Perl. They replace the default Player, Pet, Target, Target of Target, Party, and Party Pet frames and add dedicated frames for many other units (Focus, Focus Target, Party Target, Target of Target of Target). It has been a high priority to maintain the look and feel or the original Perl mods while expanding functionality. The mod has been recoded for performance and is built around the Blizzard UI usage of events.

Q&A
-----

Q: I'm seeing double party buffs for some reason, what gives?
A: 99% of the time this is caused by CT_PartyBuffs. Simply remove the mod and you will return to having one set of party buffs.

Q: I am having massive dead spots for clicking on some of the unit frames, what's wrong?
A: This can be caused by a number of mods, but the most common seems to be CT_MovableParty. Please remove this mod as Perl can be moved without the use of this mod.

Q: The default party frames are showing up with red lightning bolts. What's going on?
A: As of version 1.503 of CT_RaidAssist this should no longer be caused by CTRA. The settings for this are now located in the WoW settings under Interface Options -> Basic -> Raid -> Hide Party Interface.

Q: Do you support ArcaneBar?
A: Yes, it is included in your download of Perl Classic.

Q: Will you be adding any features to Perl_PlayerBuff?
A: No, my coding for this mod goes as far as making sure it 'works.' If anyone would like to expand upon it, feel free to do so.

Q: Where are the raid frames?
A: As of 2.0 I no longer code raid frames for Perl Classic. Luckily, X-Perl's raid frames work great alongside Perl Classic. X-Perl's raid frames (and the unit frames themselves) can be found here: http://www.curse.com/downloads/details/3416/

Q: The scaling is all messed up! What do i do?
A: I recommend setting the scale to that of the UI if you are having issues. Open the options menu via "/perl" or the Black Pearl icon on the minimap and set the scale accordingly under the "All" tab.

Q: I am having an issue not listed in this FAQ, what can I do?
A: First, update *every* mod. I do not support ancient outdated and unmaintained mods. If you have double checked that everything is up to date, post on any of the Perl Classic mod pages and I'll be glad to help you narrow down the issue or give suggestions to help find a solution.

Q: Can you add this feature?
A: I'm sure it's possible, but the primary purpose of this mod is to 'modernize' the original Perl mod so that it doesn't slow your game down.

It'll probably be your combat display, you can disable/adjust it under the Combat Display tab in /perl.

Bugs since 3.08

Bug since 3.08-

When in a party, trying to right-click any party members' unitframe to bring up the context menu gives a lua error. A quick workaround is to target that player and then right-click the target unitframe instead, which is still working fine.

It means that it will be released, just not in the current version that everyone uses. I'm rewriting the mod from the ground up to make it not suck nearly as much on the coding side (so you know, I don't have to code 1 feature 7 times because I didn't know any better 3 years ago). So basically, it will be implemented, just not anytime soon. I'm sure I'll start putting out alpha releases of my other version soon, but it is missing *lots* of features at this point (but buff support is not one of them as odd as that is).
Woot, I'm already hyped for it!
Really looking forward to PCUF working even better than it already does ^^
As a programmer, I know how refreshing (but also tiring) it can be to rewrite code to the better.
Can't wait to try the alpha and hopefully help improving it somehow

I'd imagine I can code in to only sure curable debuffs. Only show casted buffs may be quite a bit harder.

I guess it would help if I read this correctly the first time. Currently, only the highlighting is fixed. Debuffs you can't cure will still show on the frame, but won't light it up.

Just so you know in case this helps, I had same problems with x-perl but pitbull and ag_unit works fine.

I need to use perl classic though I played with it since day 1 and am so used to it.

@blackwater: I finally have some free time from work to code the fix. I'm currently testing some code. With any luck, it will work on the first attempt.

@Trixie1971: I can't give an ETA on this, but I have a working version I think buried somewhere in my email.

@devfool: I'm not sure. I've never looked into coding for that mod. With as little time as I have lately to code, I'd probably have to say I won't be the one to code this.
