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

Well, then we're back to square 1... Because when I turn off Cartographer -loot, maps and info, it works for me... And that is when I'm running QH, so it might be more complicated than just blaming one addon. And since this is the one addon that is in common, I believe that the author of x-perl might look into it, and maybe contact one or both of the other addon-makers.

But... Obviously people are more eager to keep blaming different addons than finding a solution.

Well, if any data (wts-folder) i might have is needed to try and solve this, then write to me. This conversation is going nowhere, and I'll just be looking for an addon that doesn't have this problem (like perl-uf which does not have this problem).

Quick question, and I may just have missed this--does X-Perl support the new Arena UFs that Blizzard just added in? They don't seem to be listed in the options anywhere, but maybe I am missing something.

These are enemy UFs, which in the default UI show up on the right-hand side.

Offender

I'm not trying to put the blame on anyone, I'm trying to find the solution to the problem. If it's only Cartographer-modules that makes this happen, then it might be those modules fault. But as I've read on the net, then QH might also run into problems concerning this and if this is the case, then it all leads back to X-perl because it's the addon that has to do with the unit-frames, where the problem is.

Well, in any case... There is a problem, but maybe if the author of this addon gave his/hers oppinion, we might become wiser.

Drop-down problems

I wrote a couple of posts ago, about problems with x-perl showing right-click drop-down menues in dungeons/instances. I've done a little research on the net, and found that more people experince this.

There are some who claim that turning of questhelper help, and others (and this is my experince too) that say it helps to turn of Cartographer Instance Notes, Cartographer Instance Maps (and with it is Cartographer Instance Loot dependant of these).

Well this is a quick fix, but is not good enough in the long run. Now I'm just waiting for either X-perl to try and fix this problem, or it might be Cartographer and QuestHelper. But since X-perl has this problem with more add-ons, it might be best that it's fixed in this add-on at first.

Besides this, I find it difficult to know if these posts in this forum is read by the author of the add-on. A little response would help calm me on this.

The shield and HOT trackers work good for my Priest, but I can't get them to work at all for my Shaman's Earth Shield and Riptide. Anyone else have this problem?

Problems in instance

Hi

Nice work with this add-on.
But I've encountered an error or...
When I'm inside an instance, I can't right-click on my own frame or any of my group-members. Is this intended? I've checked it on several machines with other accounts than my own, and it's the same.

If it's a setting, which one is it then?

If it's a bug, what info do you need from me, besides this?

Problem when leaving a raid group with X-Perl v3.0.3-release/r281, USEng client/server, WoW 3.1.1 live.

--Leave a raid after its over via the "Leave party" choice from the dropdown menu from the player frame.
--Go for a pina colada and have it "ghetto hearth" you from the instance to the nearest graveyard after a minute.
--After that happens, the raid frames are no longer present. But...the party text headers (you have set to be showing) are still visible. As in "Party 1", "Party 2" and so on. They remain up interfering with your UI until you relog.

This problem did not appear with r278 (from WowAce) & earlier.

Question Paper Doll setting I may have missed?

Does X-Perl have a paper doll setting that I may have missed? I have a durability meter (through Fortress) that helps with overall monitoring, but it would be nice to see exactly what's taking the hits when things are damaged. Is there a setting to enable this? If it's not supported, is this option something in the works?

I LOVE this mod and have converted most of my guildies. Please keep up the great work!

VonBolding,

That is because you are trying to use the custom menu, which, unfortunately is broken on the Blizzard end of things.

Use a keybinding of your choosing to set the focus until they resolve the issue or it is removed from the Xperl options.

Best of luck,
