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

First of All, thanks for the great Addon. I have 2 Issues.
First: Please integrate the new Shaman Totem Timers
Second: The Hitpoints of Mobs isn't calculated to a amount anymore. Only the Percentage is shown instead of the exact Hitpoints (33% instead of 3432HP)
With the old version it was calculated. Can u fix this?
thx

Talent Text

For some reason, my x-perl is no longer showing the correct or sometimes not showing any talent spec. Just thought I'll let you know.

Grim Reaper Error

I've been getting this error from Grim Reaper and I can't quite figure out any concrete factors to its cause. I downloaded the newest release and got invited to a H Bot run. We ran bot and it worked fine and all. Then we went to H Mech, and whenever I would mouse over someones frame an error would pop up. About halfway through Mech the error went away and it worked fine again for a few minutes, then shortly after it would throw up the same error when I would mouse over the priests frames ( had 2 priest, 2 locks, and a warrior in the group ) but it would display the info for everyone else. At the end of the instance it all started working again. I left the party and it would throw up the error whenever I moused over the player frame. So not exactly whats up but heres the error message.

Thanks!

I would love to have this too pls =)

And was the issue with buffs cast by other people not showing up fixed? (ie I cast MOW and I see mine in raid but not those cast by other druids. Apparently this happens with AB too.)

First, a bug report: When "Flip" is activated under Party, and the Party frame is moved to the right side of the screen, only the first Party buff appears directly under each frame--the rest proceed off to the right of the Party frame, over the edge, instead of proceeding to the left as they should. Until you open X-Perl options, and then the buffs remember where they ought to be and snap into position.

Secondly: As a raiding mage, I find X-Perl's Raid Frame very useful for keeping track of Arcane Intelligence/Arcane Brilliance buffs. I have my display set to "Raid Buffs" and "Castable/Curable Only" to keep from being overwhelmed by all the various class buffs. The problem is that only the AIs/ABs which I have personally cast appear in the raid frames. AIs and ABs cast by other mages do not show up, and I have to click on each member on whom I haven't cast and look at them in the Target frame to make sure they have the buff. Am I doing something wrong?

Recently I noticed when raiding with my druid the MoW and GotW cast by other druids in the raid do not display, however the ones I have cast on raid members do.

I also raid with a holy priest - with her I do see all the fortitudes cast by others + myself.

I have looked to see if there is some difference in settings and have even copied the priests settings over to my druid. Nothing has worked.

Still love the mod though.

Thanks!
