X-Perl UnitFrames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.6.35
by: MysticalOS, Zeksie
A much enchanced version of Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with many additions and improvements over the original Nymbia code.

Range Finder (combined with optional health check) for all frames based on spell or item range test.

HoT Monitor will highlight units clearly that have your own active Heal over Time spells.

Debuff Highlights in standard debuff colours on all friendly frames. Priority given to show debuffs that YOU can cure first.

Raid Frames, buff icons, MT list units and some other portions or X-Perl are Created on demand. Saving a lot of time and memory at system startup. Defering the creation of many parts of X-Perl to when they are actually required. And of course, most often outside of raids they are never required and are never created.

Raid Target icon support for Target, Target's Target, MT Targets.

Raid tooltip will show combat rezzers available (druids with Rebirth ready (or very soon available) and any normal rezzers out of combat) if you bring up tooltip of a dead person.

'In-combat' indicators for Pet, Target, Target's Target, Party, Party pets, Raid, MT Targets.

3D Portraits for player, pet, target, focus, party. Optional. Of course this may degrade your framerate somewhat because you are displaying more 3D character models that without this option. But some like it pretty, and it does look cool.

Red and Green combat flashes for frames when player, pet, target, party, partypets, raid take damage/heals. Useful indication of things happening.

Added time left on party member/target buffs/debuffs when in a raid, these depend somewhat on CTRA/oRA/oRA2 sending appropriate information over the addon channel, although some of it can be determined at run time by X-Perl, when a player gets a buff for example, we know how long it should last, and therefor when it should expire.

Totally new options window including all X-Perl options and access via minimap icon.

Configurable colours for borders and backgrounds. Including class coloured names, and configurable reaction colours.

Much care has been taken with code size, memory load, memory usage per cycle and so on. LuaProfiler/OnEvent mods used extensively and regularly to ensure that X-Perl does not do more work than is absolutely necessary.

With that in mind, the event system was totally re-written, and is as kind to system performance as possible. The majority of events are disabled while zoning to alleviate any event backlog issues. And where most addons use 1 event handler per unit frame, which although standard, the alternative has improved X-Perl's performance. By using single main event handlers, we can route the events to appropriate units. So, for example, when a single UNIT_HEALTH update is fired, then just a single raid frame or party frame etc. gets the event, rather than 40 raid frame's handlers, 4 party and so on. Nymbia's Perl used to do a lot of crazy full frame udpates all over the place, eating away at CPU cycles. This was all fixed to only update what was necessary based on events.

Liberal usage of local functions to cut down compiled code size, and increase speed since functions are called directly rather than by name. Every time you have a global function, you have a global string name associated with it, so size in the global environment saved where possible.

XPerl_RaidHelper sub-addon
Assists View
Will show anyone from raid assising you with your target, and can also show healers or all plus known enemies targetting you.
Tooltips for the same also available (on player and target frames) if you prefer to not use the main window.

MT Targets
Replaces CTRA/oRA2 MT Targets window, and doubles as a replacement for the Perl RaidFrames warrior targets.
Indicator shows which target you are on.
Frames will be coloured to show if tanks have duplicate targets.

XPerl_RaidMonitor sub-addon (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Casting Monitor
Shows selected classes (defaults to healer classes) in a list (much like the MT List), but with some differences.
Shows mana bars and cast bars on left. Their targets on right. Health bar as normal, but a secondary small red bar on targets which shows the maximum single hit this unit has received since entering combat. The secondary bar will extend downwards from their current HP level down to as far as zero.
A green name on the targets indicates this is the same target that you have.
You can click on casters or their targets as expected.
For druids, right clicking on a caster will cast Innervate on them.
For shamans, right clicking on a caster will cast Mana Tide Totem. Check the * indicator to see if they're in your group.

All bars can be re-sized in X-Perl main options (Monitor section).

Totals can be toggled (from the 'T' minibutton at top of frame) which gives overview of raid mana status.

XPerl_RaidAdmin sub-addon (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Raid Admin
Save/Load raid roster setups
Only does direct save and load for the moment, but more to come (templates and such).

Item Check
Replacement for /raitem /radur /raresist /rareg. Use the old commands before, or drop items in the left item list.
Query button will perform /raitem on all ticked items (query always includes dur and resists) and you can then view and review all the results whenever, without having to re-query each item.
Includes everyone in raid, so you don't have to work out who doesn't have items, it'll list them with 0 instead of no entry.
Active Scanner to check raid member's equipment for the item selected. So you can be sure that people actually have the item worn (Onyxia Cloak for example), without having to go round single target inspecting everyone who 'forgot' to install CTRA for the 50th raid in a row.

Supported Addons
CT_RaidAssist, oRA2. Shows tooltip info and player status, replaces MT Targets List, improves raid frames, shows player status, resurrection monitor, buff timers aware.
MobInfo-2 / MobHealth3 - Shows target health from MobHealth database.
DruidBar - Shows druid mana bar from DruidBar when shapeshifted.
Clique compatible. And any other click cast addon that uses the same communication method. (see below)
Changes:
*Updated for 5.x
*Should use signifcently less cpu then it did before

Anchor

I can't change my anchor on Party frames. It's automaticly on TOP and cant be change for any frame. Im using the latest version of 3.0.2 Downloaded from here. All i know is that it worked before the patch.

Im not sure the Anchor is the option that makes the Party frames "Laying down" instead of standing up "ontop" of eachother.

Party Frames;

"Laying down" FRAME1 FRAME2 FRAME3 FRAME4

Ontop of eachother.
FRAME1
FRAME2
FRAME3
FRAME4

Am i totally wrong?

There isn't an option to change the color of Runic Power. The black on black is quite stylish and gothy, but hard to see.

It is possible to see in the TargetFrame the current/max HP the current missing HP's AND the HP%?

Like:
(missingHP | current/maxHP | %HP)

Death knight runes do not show up on the character frame for me. Don't know if i missed something or not. Also, my install was a fresh install as i had nvr used it b4 & i cannot figure out how to get rid of the x-perl control frame (the little frame that says "x-perl" & has a little pearl on the left). I can turn off the mini-map button but cannot for the life of me get that one turned off.

Great mod. Thank you.

Error msg

I had to delete my wtf, cache, and interface folders recently because I had a corrupt ui file. I downloaded the newest version of Xperl and started to go through the setup first trying to set the anchor of the raid frames to left. Each time I try to set an anchor I get this error msg. I get this error with no other addons installed besides xperl as well...

I get the same error if I try to set a focus by right-klicking a player frame and chose Set Focus from the drop-down.
I found a work-around tho:
Bind a key to the function "Focus Target" from the Keybinding menu in Interface settings. When using this, I can target someone, even a pet, hit the Key for it and the focus frame works.

Open you X-Perl menu from the minimap button, whenever active and not in combat this alows you to drag each and every frame associated with x-perl around, party and raidframe even when not active.

Open X-Perl and click on the 'Colors' tab. In the top-right pane you will see "Class Coloured Bars", just make sure that box is checked.

Custom Highlights

Can you add some default Custom Highlights to the default setup? I've been looking for an icy tomb trigger for a moth, and can't find it. Frost blast brings up about 20 different abilities, and I don't know which one is it. Other fights this would be useful for too. If you could, or if someone with a configured one could upload it so i could download it, that'd be great.

Hello... second time requesting this... but... please


I've got a request / question / what ever you can call it.

I love using the x-perl UI. But how can I change it to show Current HP/Max only. Healer mode does this but adds on the number at the end. I don't want that.

Alternatively I want it to show only current HP.
This is for Player, party, and target frames. Raid frames would be nice too. I'd recode it myself but I don't know xml well enough to not break it.
The addon Achaeologist used to do it, but that add on is now dead. And I can't find one that will do this for me. Or point out an addon that would do this...

Thank you
Muriden

Very minor issue, on a death knight, if u have the XP bar showing and you have your runes docked to player frame turned on, whenever u log in the bar is gone but if you open the options as soon as you mouse over the options related to runes it pops back up. So I just undocked it for now since its basically the same thing =p
It may be a conflict with another of your addon, since it isnt doing this on none of my DK.
