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 I do not support ancient outdated and unmaintained mods.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.

I lied, the old way I disabled Blizzard's mods was what I said. All you should have to do is comment out that one line to bring back the player frame.

Thanks Global for the click-casting changes. Getting Clique set up for PCUF was a breeze! =)

Wonderful

Great addon.

I do have one small problem, not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I'm trying to turn on the portraits (either 2d or 3d, don't mind which) but they never show.

Do I need another addon for this or am I doing something stupid?

You just have to drag the Player frame to the right, because the 3D portrait is out of the edge of your screen as you enable it... I've got troubles with that... tried deleting any other addon and such, until I just found this out

Guide?

Hi again...

I've seen several screenshots of people who've changed the look of their Perl Classic frames...

I have an example from a movie with Onyxia

Picture

How can I I.E. make my frames blueish?

The link doesn't work since I can't view your GMail account =P Anyway, Perl Classic only support the standard black or transparent. With that said, you can replace the Perl_Black file in the Perl_Config directory with a color of your choice.

Hate to tell you this, but the unit frames in that pic aren't any variant of Perl.

This whole mod is beautiful. However, im having a problem removing the giant "TNL" bar that runs horizontally across the top of my screen. Cant seem to find any option to remove it. Any incite would be appreciated, thanks for your time guys.

That's not part of PCUF. Goto the character select screen and disable Bongos_XP.

Photek UI and the frames are Discord Unit Frames.

remove player name "tab"

Could it be possible to be able to remove the player(and pet) name 'tab'.

To reduce the size of the frames =)
