Proximo  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Beta 2.43
by: Grayhoof [More]
What is it? - Simple enemy unit frames for Arena matches used for identifying and coordinating targets

Features:


- Unit tracking via mouse over, target, party targets, death messages, name plate updates, and optional syncing between all teammates
- Main Assist setting and syncing, shown by yellow outline on current Main Assist target.
- Optional New Enemy, Low Health, Death, and Aura announcements via Chat, Party, RaidWarning, SCT, or MSBT.
- Optional Focus setting via right click.
- Optional Mana bars.
- Optional Party Targets.
- Optional Race Icons.
- Optional Aura tracking.
- Optional Cast bars.
- Optional Talent Guessing.
- Optional Battle Ground Support.
- Minor frame customizations: size, font, texture, header, etc...


For Spells, give the spell name just like you would in a macro. Example: Dispel, Dispel(Rank 1)
For Macros, use ; to break lines and *t to insert the targets name. Example: /target *t;/cast Dispel

Where did it come from? - After using ArenaMaster for a long time, I decided to make my own Arena based mod based on some ideas from myself and friends.

How do I use it? - Unzip Proximo into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt. Type /prox test to see a test frame when not in arena. Alt+left click header to move. Right click header for options.

What happens if an enemy is first seen after combat starts? - They will still be shown and synced, however you will not be able to target them by clicking on their bar. This will be designated with **'s around their name (ex. ** Grayhoof ** ).

Beta 2.43 - Added Death Knights to unit handling
Beta 2.42 - Updates to allow extract tracking of Auras times and optional tracking of PvP Trinkets.
Beta 2.4 - Many updates to take advantage of the 3.0 arena id's. Arena enemies can now always be targeted/clicked regardless of when they are first seen.
2.32 - Fixes for 3.0
2.31 - Updates for 3.0 patch (not tested very well)
2.3 - Added New "Use in Battlegrounds" option. It basically just becomes a "last 5 targets" unit frame for self only, and doesn't sync with other users. Added new talents using TalentGuess-1.0. Provides talents as best as possible based on comblog events and buffs. Converted to using ShareMedia Widgets for Ace3. Added Frost Nova to tracked auras. Fix for highlighted frames staying after leaving and re-entering an arena. Register SML callbacks correctly.
2.2 - Converted Auras to use spellid. Fixed Profile copies/changes. Removed unneeded locals. Convert to LibShareMedia-3.0.
2.1 - Fix for combat log names. Added optional cast bars. Cast bars for your focus and target will be accurate, while others are only approximations. Options for cast bar: color, size, font size, time. Made more of the frame clickable, besides just the health bar. Converted to quicker combat log method. Gave main frame a name

First off, Proximo rocks. of course, just needs to be said.

in other news, im having issues resizing my proximo window. using the latest version and having the frame unlocked, i cannot make it smaller. i can move it around the screen just fine but I cannot shrink it.

any ideas??

PvE Proximo

We were doing heroic Magisters' Terrace with my 5v5 arena team resto druid healing. The third boss is sort of a "PvP fight", because the mobs do not have aggro tables. It's also like arenas in that there are 5 named targets, so the druid said "oh, I wish we could use Proximo here".

One can of course take the Proximo source code and change the test frame names, but the group of mobs you fight is selected by random from a larger group.

So, I took a small addon that I use for daily quests (it generates zone-specific macros, so you don't need to mess with quest items on your toolbars all the time) and added some new functionality to it.

It has two command line shortcuts Proximo. One resets & shows/hides the Proximo frame and the other one takes the mob you are targeting and adds it to the proximo frame. It has built-in tables for Priestess Delrissa adds and Malacrass in ZA (Moroes would be easy to do too, but who cares?) and the automated macro system generates and instance-specific macro that automatically targets through all the possible names and builds the proximo frame.

I've done very limited testing with it, so I'm not going to release it quite yet. I guess this is a sort of "teaser" and a reminder that Proximo could actually be used for some PvE stuff as well.

Telling spec by buffs?

I know that you can't view an opponents spec anymore, but there's got to be another way to "estimate" a players spec.

Just some thoughts: I know you can't inspect an opponent, but can you see their buffs on mouseover? Some specs have unique buffs that could tip someone off as to their spec.

Obviously gear as well, but without the ability to inspect, I don't know how the addon would actually see that. I know that I can always tell a pally's spec by his weapon: 2h is usually Ret, 1h sword/axe and shield is usually Prot, and 1h mace and shield is usually Holy.

There's got to be some way around this.

it really sucks that Blizzard removed the talent inspection on enemys in the Arena. I think that the biggest issue in Arena and the function that I used the talent inspection the most for was to identify the healers in the opposing teams. I now dread the Druid/Pally/Shammy 5v5 team where we get to guess who's going to be doing the healing.

Is there a way to make a note appear on the name bar of the opponant when that opponant casts a healing spell? I'm picturing something like the bar flashing bright yellow or something and the words "Casting Heals" appear next to their name when the opponant casts a heal on another opponant. Perhaps have the message fade after 5 seconds if not renewed. This should provide some functionality that would help solve the issue.

Thanks for the addon, it's fantastic.

Re: Talent spec

Clausm, as has been posted a few different places, Blizzard removed the ability to talent scan PVP flagged opponents. There is nothing I can do until Blizzard either changes their mind or gives us another way.

Profile options are unusable
"Copy from" does nothing and using "Existing profile" gives error:
Error: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'partytargetheight' (a nil value)

Re: Proximo

Reis, yes I will be adding that eventually.

Tenson, Clique requires unitid's , which Proximo cannot give. You can achieve the same results using the Proximo click options and macros however.

Udshiva, Blizzard removed the option to inspect talents against PVP flagged enemies. I didn't want to remove the code quite yet in case they change their mind, so I just disabled the check boxes for now.

Is it possible to add Clique support? Or do I have to ask Clique author for this?

I think it's nice to be able to assign actions on these bars, but it would be nicer to inherit actions assigned by Clique. Thanks.

Feature request: more alerts

I filled out the feature request form and will monitor it for updates, but I thought I'd share the gist of the request in the thread.

Basically, I want Proximo to send me more useful information in chat/rw/etc. Stuff like silencing and school locking on friend and foe, who's at low health/mana, et cetera. Arena Unit Frames does this pretty well, and it sucks to have to run two addons. :-)

Zalona.

PvE

I'd find this useful in PvE situations rather than having to tab target through all of the mobs to find the one I want next.

Is there an option to enable it outside arena or another mod that handles this already?

target of a target

any way to add target of a target functionality. Like it will just show who your proximo targets are targeting ( name or color box), some other mods have this and seems a rather simple and useful addition.

cheers
