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

Not sure if there's the ability to do that with the template stuff. Will check it out, cos it's not a bad idea. Although I'd make it a ctrl-click or something like that. Otherwise it'd interfere with menu key.

Any reason for this? It only happens on my druid. My rogue has no problems with it.
Status Highlighting, Missing Buffs. Cos you're a buff class and not buffed. I'm planning on an "in-raid only" option for that.

@Veltor
Perhaps that it worked before is a bug. If you're not in a raid/group then it should not show.

@eck
WoW will not save window positions if they are at 0,0 (top left corner) just nudge them down or right a pixel and it'll save it. If the position is not saved, then it reads the default from the XML again.

Re: Aggro Warning not working

I have a problem that is more random than anything else. Every time I log into WoW, my party frame gets moved from where I set it (at the top left corner of the screen) to about 80 pixels below that. I can move it back fine, but it's incredibly irritating, if not game-breaking.

Wink Aggro Warning not working

Yesterday, I was using the version 2.1.5 of X-Perl. I traveled all the way through Strangleton Vale, and the aggro warning was working fine. I traveled in the Barrens, and then, for an unknown reason, no -aggro- warning ever showed.

I installed the last version of X-perl, 2.2.0a, today, and the Aggro warning do not work anymore. Not at all, not for me, nor for my pet. I tried to uncheck and re-check the option in the control panel, and nothing change. No -AGGRO- shows anymore.

I tried to deactivate every addons but Xperl... I tried with every characters I have... the aggro warning do not works at all... and it started with the 2.1.5 version yesterday, so it cant be the addons itself...

Is it the patch? A corrupt preference file in my folder?

Thanks

Well, not really funny. I think all mods use the same method to display it. Will continue looking into it for now.

Is it all frames it doesn't work for? And is it only the PVP Rank and Status icons?

I assume with oRA2, it will functions the same with people using CTRA? Or do I still need CTRA to make leader queries work (just for my own reference).
If you have oRA2, you don't need CTRA. It'll give you a minimap button with all the options and queries and stuff on it.

The X-Perl item/dura thing will still work because it just sends out the request for info, then reads the info back from everyone else. But anyone else doing the same checks would not see your own info.

I'd recommend you dig up a copy of oRA2. It's written far better than CTRA, and doesn't come loaded with unit frames and junk. It's just the core messenging system basically.

The promote thing is a Blizzard Bug. It's affecting most mods cos it's part of the UnitPopup menu system. For X-Perl's raid frames, I'm simply overriding the OnClick for those menu items and doing it myself.

Great job once again, Mr. Zeksie.

I'm using the 2.20 version and still loving it. I will get 2.20a for the loadon error.

I did see that the target buffs are available to be shown above frame. Can this be done for the player frame as well?

Thank you once again, sir.

--edit--
One more question (sorry), and I'm not sure if I understood this correctly from before.

If I don't have CTRA (not in addon folder) at all, will I still receive commands from raid leader using CTRA? I love X-Perl, but raid leader insists that we install CTRA.

Currently I have it installed, loaded, but not showing raid frames, so I do receive commands from raid leader using CTRA. If I remove the folder entirely, would it still work?

On the other hand, if I'm the raid leader, and I use /raresist to check the raid members using CTRA, would it work as well?

Finally, is that "random promote member to leader" problem part of Blizzard's bug? Or CTRA?
