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

Error between Thott and X-Perl

I posted this over at Curse, but my post has disappeared making me think perhaps they're having some problems over there again with the issues they keep having with the site. So I figured I'd post something here instead.

I upgraded XPerl the other day from v2.4.3b to 2.4.3e and started receiving an error in Thottbot after the upgrade. I just upgraded to XPerl r178 and receive the same types of errors. If I downgrade XPerl back down to v2.4.3b the error stops occurring. I'm not smart enough to know if what seems like a compatibility issue is something which is caused by Thottbot or XPerl so I figured I post the information in both places. My post for the Thottbot peeps is at Cosmos.

I receive an error when I hover over NPCs with the mouse cursor. I'm not sure yet if the error occurs at any other time. I have seen a few different errors and one example follows:


Error: attempt to index global 'T' (a function value)
AddOn: Thottbot
File: ThottbotEngine.lua
Line: 85
Count: 1
Interface\AddOns\Thottbot\ThottbotEngine.lua:85: in function `ffffffffffffffffff'
Interface\AddOns\Thottbot\ThottbotEngine.lua:85: in function `ccccccccccccccccccc'
Interface\AddOns\Thottbot\ThottbotEngine.lua:85: in function `ddddddddddd'
Interface\AddOns\Thottbot\ThottbotEngine.lua:85: in function `OnEvent'
Interface\AddOns\Thottbot\ThottbotEngine.lua:85: in function `Thottbot_OnEvent'
[string "*:OnEvent"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnEvent"]:1>


I figured I'd post the information in both places to see if someone who knew what they were doing would/could determine the source of the issue.

OK, fixed my issue.

like I said before, I love the HuD
Suggestion- (might be the plan) but an optional side bar for pet would be nice, and on the other side target of target would be cool

I know the HUD is not "released" yet, but I thought I would report a bug in case you weren't aware of it.

The energy/mana/rage bar for the player doesn't change colour after login. This is only an issue on my druid, where the bar stays coloured depending on which form I was in when I logged into the game. Apart from that, works great.

I have been trying to get my mouseover healing to work on raid frames and party frames and it is not working at all. I have talked to many other x-perl users and they are not having a problem with the mouseover macro but are not aware if they ever enabled anything to make frames work.

My Shammy is elemental but I want to be able to do backup healing via frames as toons are a pain in a cluster.

btw, thanks for getting a LK version ready for the release.
Are you reporting this mouseover bug with the LK version? Or is that a separate comment?

The mouseover not working for macros is a known issue with the WotLK version (granted its not documented on the page). However, I believe it should work by default on live realms.

Please clarify if you're using LK or live (and if its LK, its already known )

I think the HUD wasn't supposed to be in yet, without any options. I must say it looks really cool, and I normally dislike HUDs because they try to stuff too much distracting info in the center of my screen.

It looks like it's hidden if you're in an inn/city (ie. with rested icon), faded if you're outside and out of combat, and bright if you're in combat. So if you don't see it on any of your chars, go outside town

Ok, so on a low level toon the new HUD shows up and it ROCKS.

Is there a way I can get this to work on all my toons? going over the lua file for saved var. I found the settings, but lines and both look correct.

The sparkles look very nice, but it seems that one animation cancels the other.

From what I could see, the left-side setting adds a small bar that counts down the HoT with longest duration, and the right-side setting ("Extra sparkles") adds some real sparkles on the player-frame upon received healing.

When casting Regrowth, it plays the second sparkle animation for the incoming instant heal, but it doesn't start the countdown bar for the 18s HoT. Then, when casting a Lifebloom it suddenly starts counting down the remaining Regrowth HoT (since that's the one with longest duration). Upon the final heal of Lifebloom it plays the sparkle animation again, and the countdown bar disappears again (prematurely).

It's a bit difficult to describe, but I'm always on #wowace@freenode if more details would be helpful.

I think the choice was that overlaying some information on top of the elite graphic was undesirable. Thus, what the author considers the most important information is moved inside the portrait and the rest is hidden until the graphic is gone.

Anyway, its not my addon. I'm just trying to help Zek out where I can because I know maintaining addons can be tiresome and time-consuming.

Actually, two. Elite (Winged golden dragon) and Rare Elite (Winged silver dragon)
Yes, as of 2.4.3e (and maybe 2.4.3d) it does have two graphics (XPerl_Elite.blp and XPerl_Rare.blp). Any version before that, it only had one (a silver winged graphic). SetVertexColor is used to turn it gold when necessary.
