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

Hm, I get it and I'd rather like Proximo to bee kept smal and clean than overloading it with stuff.

I got the casting bar idea from this mod, http://www.curse.com/downloads/details/9048/ , which definitly isn't "smal and clean" at all ^^ and btw doesn't support my german WoW client. Nevertheless, I wouldn't have wanted to switch to something else from my beloved "aced" Proximo.

Thank you for answering.

Cheers,
Grektar

Re: Re: Casting Bars

Thats Straight, just thought id throw so ideas out. Oh well ^_^

tetz and Grektar, things like that unfortunately will not work well with Proximo. Castings bars, buffs, debuffs, etc... all require someone to actually be targeting to receive valid information about them. Trying to sync all of that information between all Proximo users just is not feasible as it is too much information to sync in short periods of time. Some of the buff/debuff information may become more doable in 2.4 with the enhanced combat log so I will reevaluate them at that time.

Pets are something I feel aren't too important when it comes to targeting in Arena. Dealing with pets is always important, however I don't believe monitoring their health and targeting them is as important as the players. I won't say I will never add them, but they are not a high priority for me currently.

Casting Bars

I think Proximo is just great and I so like the minimalistic approach.

Nevertheles, Casting Bars right under the manabars would be awsome and the only thing I can think about that I miss with this addon. :-)

For some reason when I upgraded from one of the older versions to 1.4 (I forget what old version I had, but I think it was around 1.1) I lost the actual frames. I can use the slash commands, but nothing I do actually shows the frames. Even going into arenas don't bring them up. Is there an addon out there that blocks proximo or messes up its functionality?

EDIT: I found the issue. Apparently Proximo saves its variables in the "Saved Variables" folder under your account folder in the WTF folder. I had been looking for the file in the "Saved Variables" folder under the character name inside the server folder (which is where I'm used to finding the file). Once I deleted the old variables it started working.

good ideas

I feel i have some good ideas to an already AMAZING addon:

1. Add a feature of showing if they are in combat.
For example: on the right side of the bar show the little 2 swords that blizz uses if the person is in combat

2. Some major actions people use can be shown:
For example: On the left hand side it shows the players portrait by default. If a player is drinking it could change the icon to the star of tears, or if the player is rooted, it shows the root icon, or if the player is cycloned/sheeped/feared/blinded/icetrapped/FD etc it shows that icon in place of the portrait. (Hopefully you catch the drift) And to even add more to it show the duration inside of it? Lol i know im going way to far on this probably, but ideas never hurt.


3. Players pet could be shown: (BUT not a huge deal)
For Example: If the player has a pet put an icon on top of the health bar with the icon of the pet (felguard/felhunter etc) and on that icon show its percent. I dont know about .lua and how hard it is just an idea.

4. Targeting / Focusing extra addition (not needed but my friend keeps bring it up):
For Example: My friend has been unable to find an addon that is able to let him do a /focus macro with Shift and Left Clicking. Is it possible to add a Shift to just the targeting/focusing feature rather than the casting feature?

5. Red Bar fading if out of range:
For example: if the player is out of a set range 30-40 yards then it adds a VERY light faint red.

6. If you could show the casting bar like Xperl Does over the players name maybe even a light weight in the background woudl be leet

Im trying to not sound needy just throwing out ideas, because even without this i will still use the addon

Other than that, the addon is amazing <3!

If you need any pictures i could always draw these on paint if you dont understand the typing ^_^.

Thanks a ton Grayhoof!!!

I currently do not plan on adding multiple ways to click cast with Proximo. It s not and cannot be a full unit frame because of how it has to function with unknown unit types. Every click action has to be a custom made macro, so supporting the many different ways someone may want to click a frame is out side its scope.

Its mainly for targeting assistance and simple CC click casting (sheep, root, etc...). It also cannot allow any click functions if an enemy is added during combat, so you would lose lots of functionality. You're best pet is to use Proximo to select your focus or target and then use your normal means of casting.

Pet frames I feel are a little too much. While they are important to arena matches, in most cases they are secondary targets. I'll keep them in mind but don't feel they are of large importance.

Expanding a little bit on post below me. Is there any planned addition for including modifiers for on-click actions?

For example
Right click - Cyclone
Shift + Right click - Roots ?

Middle-mouse-button click-action

First off, I'd like to say thanks for such a great mod.

It's great to be able to assign /cast or macros to left or right mouse clicks on the enemy list.
However, it would be even better if it was possible to add a middle-mouse-button click-action to the enemy list too.

I do not have any .lua experience and have been unsuccessfully trying to edit your mod to see if I could test that functionality.

So I'd like to submit this as a feature request. If you ever have the time to look into it, I think we'd all greatly appreciate it.

Much thanks,
HC

Nice job on the talent display Grayhoof! One question: is it possible to announce enemies' talent specs when Proximo announces enemy players? So, instead of "/ra Furydude (Warrior)" it says "/ra Furydude (Warrior) 17/44/0"?

Thalim, that is currently not possible as it uses the MA's target to determine the main target. I'm not sure of an easy way to achieve what you are asking for, but I will think about it.
