FocusFrame  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.5.3
by: Tageshi [More]

FocusFrame -- Created by Tageshi


---------------------------------------------------------------
1. WHAT IS "FocusFrame"?
---------------------------------------------------------------

FocusFrame is very simple addon to show your focus.

The frame looks almost exactly same as Blizzard's TargetFrame;
It provide following features.
- Click to target your focus or your focus's target.
- Shows your focus's health and mana.
- Shows your focus's target.
- Shows cast bar of your focus.
- Supports Click-Casting such as Clique addon by utilizing ClickCastFrames.
- Movable by dragging the title tab.
- Supports MobHealth.


---------------------------------------------------------------
2. WHAT IS "focus"?
---------------------------------------------------------------


The "focus" is a new feature of WoW API 2.0.
Basically you can use "focus" as a second target.
It works in similar way as your real Target
and allows you to use DOUBLE targets at the same time. (essentially)

From API 2.0 Changes:
> * There is a new unit "focus" which behaves like target,
> the "PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED" event is fired when it is changed,
> and you receive unit events for this unit.

> * Spell casting and targetting (including focus) are only allowed
> using secure templates or special slash commands (not /script).



---------------------------------------------------------------
3. HOW TO USE "focus"?
---------------------------------------------------------------


You can set "focus" by using new standard Keybinding "Focus Target" or
by using new macro command "/focus" with target name or target id.
Another new standard keybindings "Target Focus" will change your target
to your focus. For example, you don't need to remember which mob is
your "sheep" to poly again.

Also you can use a keyword "focus" as a target id like "player",
"target", "party2", etc.

Example1: You can assist your focus by this macro.

/assist focus

You may want to focus your main tank/main assist if you will do DPS.
Or focus raid boss and 'assist' it if you are healing.


Example2: You can cast your Earth Shock on your focus by this macro.

/cast [target=focus] Earth Shock

You can watch spell casting bar on FocusFrame.


---------------------------------------------------------------
4. COMMANDS
---------------------------------------------------------------

FocusFrame has a few slash commands;

/focusframe scale <num> (Changes size of FocusFrame window.)
/focusframe reset (Reset window position.)
/focusframe lock (Prevent dragging the frame by accident.)
/focusframe unlock (Allows to move again.)

If your screen space is limited, try smaller window size:
/focusframe scale 0.7

When you accidently lost FocusFrame from your sight, reset it's
position and FocusFrame will appear again at the center of screen.

I like FocusFrame because it feels like something that should've been in the default UI - not only because it uses the default Blizzard layout, but also because it's necessary for many classes. Enough with the praising - I hereby present you with an addon idea that should've been in the default UI; Party Cast Bars! Also Party Targets could be a hit (I'm thinking similar style as Player vs. Target, just smaller of course).

After 2 hours of fiddling with the focusspellbar part of FocusFrame I had to admit that my lua knowledge was far from sufficient. So I hope you'll give my suggestions a shot

Can you make cast bars that only shows when party# is casting (with XPerl)? And with a style similar to the target cast bar?

Yes. But I won't do without reasonable needs.

I think we're misunderstanding each other. Here's my first post:

I was first suggesting that you could work on some "Party Cast Bars" if you wanted to. After no replies from you I assumed that you weren't interested. Today I received a pm asking me where to get "Party Cast Bars". So I thought it might get you interested in the project if you knew that others were interested.

About X-Perl: I think it would be unwise to install a full scale UF addon with the sole purpose of showing 4 cast bars. Also - eventhough I haven't tried - I don't think I'd be satisfied with the result.

Exactly that's what missing - partycastbars and THAT in the focusframe-style. I know 6 persons that would love to have that.

I don't want a fullfledged ui overhaul like with Pitbull (which is excellent but complex and BIG) or xperls.

Tageshi- my regards and 10$ for such a project.

I will integrate party cast bars to Extended Unit Frames.

eUF would fit that better imo coz thats focus frame + target of party frame + status texts + party cast bars (soon) in bliz default UI style.

That's a good news.

I was pondering how to arrange the party cast frame into a confortable form.
The idea of FocusFrame was a complement to the blizzard UI and it is to be usuful for everyone including PvP, 5man pve, raid PvE everything, and I was very comfortable with this idea.

On the contraly, idea of party cast frame is only for PvP and 5man pve, and I was pondering whether I should extend it to raid frame or make it super specific to 5man group.
eUF seems to be suitable for the latter idea from very fast.

a "close" button in the right-click menu to close the focus would be cool

FocusFrame in WotLK and WoW3.0

Tageshi-

Although the current WotLK beta and the 3.02 patch coming soon (most likely Tue 14 Oct 2008) include a built-in Focus frame, it does NOT have the features your users have become accustomed to. It is missing a TargetOfFocus display and a buff/debuff display, both of which I consider crucial.

Would you perhaps consider continuing the development of your addon for WotLK/WoW3.0? Your addon has been a tremendous utility and I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say that it would be terrible to lose the functions it provides when the new patch hits in a few days.

Either way, thank you for your efforts on FocusFrame.

Yes, built-in focus frame seems not yet polished enough.
Here is update version 2.4.2.

P.S. I suggest everyone to check the built-in focus frame at least once without installing my FocusFrame. That's nice, and many ppl don't even need add-on.
