EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features.
It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings.
EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor.
After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

Everything works great apart from one thing - can I make the bars fill instead of deplete? In other words, fill the other direction?

Hacking LUA is NP if you just tell me what to hack =D

depleting meaning going from empty to full is possible by changing the value set from timeleft to (timemax - timeleft). But that would still be left-to-right movement. I still haven't found a way for right-to-left :/

Does your 2-25-07 response mean you're still developing this mod?

I would like this to expand upwards from the bottom. Is that possible with the current settings? I've toggled all the ones I can see from the command line to no avail.

all right, for those of you who want to perl-ize ebb, download Deadly Bossmods (you don't have to use them, just get the files...you want one of them)...if you have extracted them, take the .tga file (if you can't view .tga files, here http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/M..._Download.html)
named PerlStatusBarDesign.tga (it's in the folder titled DBM_API/Textures), and copy it
post it into the ElkBuffBar directory. if you want to save the old texture, rename BarTexture.tga something else, then rename PerlStatusBarDesign.tga to BarTexture.tga.

then, i got a .lua editor (http://www.crimsoneditor.com/ was my choice), and scrolled down to the line that says "bar:SetStatusBarColor" in the "ElkBuffBar:SetBuffButtonBuff" function (like a quarter of the way down), and change the values to (0, 3, 0.0, 0.8)

and that should do it

also, i'd love an updated version...not that i'm having problems with it, but it bugs me that it's not been updated since last year, y'know?

So that 'ElkBuffBars' beta svn on wowace... is that going up any time soon? I couldn't get it to work in wow, so I assume you set it up on purpose that way.

Just curious!

well, it's under heavy development.
You'll need some libraries I haven't set as externals yet (eg SharedMediaLib), having SharedMedia installed will also benefit but isn't needed.
Also it's set to be load on demand so it will only load for me when I'm working on it ^^
So using eg ModMenuToFu you can load it ingame, /script LoadAddon("ElkBuffBars") should work, too.

But it will still be some time until a big release since I haven't worked on the options gui stuff, yet. So consider it alpha and before release there'll also be a beta to crush some bugs I didn't notice.

BUG with Firestone ....

there seeems to be a bug when I use a firestone on my warlock. I get major lag every 2-3 seconds .... LIke a freeze frame or major lag spike.
Disabling EBB and it goes away.
Works fine using CT_Mods buffbar, but I prefer this one TBH as I can use different skins for the bars .
And it is smaller as it is ACE'd.

The problem also ocurrs with windufry totems out. Seems that any of the weapon buffs that have a 10sec (or so) duration that is constantly refreshing cause the lag spikes.

All in all a good addon, but I didn't like that there's only two ways to sort by buff type: normal and inverted. Being able to manually specify the order of the buffs/debuffs/weapon buffs would be great. Something like /ebb sort wbd would make me a very happy camper.

There is one thing that this mod REALLY needs. Profiles. Even though I use the mod on most of my toons, my UI for my toons is totally different and so the placement of the buffs on my rogue would different than my mage. I would LOVE the option to save the settings for the x/y on my mage and have a different set for my other toons and such.

A GUI for the mod would be nice or atleast just add some FuBar support for the menu. And the ability to change the buff bar colors would be a big improvement.

But all in all I love the mod. I've tried others but none come close. *ahemctbuffsahem*
