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

Ok, thx.

Btw, I don't understand how the focus works (in general).

I'd like to set the focus through the Prox. window so that my teammates all focus the same target. We dont have voice chat so we often attack different targets. I tried to set focus but I only see a new frame from X-perl, and I don't think my teammates see a new frame too.

Don't use the Raid Warning frame for now. Something changed about it and I have not had time to look into it.

Grayhoof Please read!

First off lemme say thanks for such an awesome tool, our arena team has done much better with such a fine tool!

Secondly. The right click macro button is awesome! The only bad part is, there is only one! We have a druid on our team for example, and he has made a cyclone macro. That is great, but what would be nice is to have a few more added for say root, etc... The easiest way i can think of would be to add say a shift right click and shift left click, or middle mouse button activity. Just 1 more would be great, but 5 total would rock! say ctrl/left, ctrl/right, alt/left, alt/right. Anyways, keep up the good work, and I hope to see this feature in the future!

Movable Window?

Is it possible to move the window? For some reason I have it stuck right in the center of the screen and for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it to move around...

I am able to do everything else such as adjust the font size, bar length, height, etc....


Please let me know if this is possible and if not, if it could be added to the next version...


Oh and BTW, great work on this Addon!!!

Proximo 1.3 and MSBT 5.xx series seem to be incompatible. Proximo (1.3) fails to work when MSBT 5.01 is enabled though works fine when MSBT is disabled and it worked fine with the previous MSBT 4.xx releases. Feedback from MSBT programmer says that it has something to do with SinkLib. Not a programmer myself I love both add ons and wouldn’t like to force myself to use a replacement for none of them.

Just a (bug?) report
Would be glad though if this little thing gets addressed in a future version.

Sorry to post again, Grayhoof, but another idea just occured to me, If my posts are annoying please tell me to stop, I won't post anymore. Anyway, could you have it switch targets on mouseclick, or even by automatically switching to *** targets on mouseover (of their ingame char) and retargeting last enemy? Using some sort of /target (name), /targetlastenemy thing? Then allowing you to click cast and set to focus? Would the frames then have a unitid or no?
I have no clue what I'm talking about obviously, just trying to come up with a workaround.

Thank you for replying Grayhoof! I appreciate it. Your well informed answer put an end to a two week search I would have continued in vain. Even without that functionality, Proximo is an amazingly useful add-on. Might we also expect Target of a Target functionality (so we can see who is targetting what,) minicastbars for enemies, an CC debuffs on them in the future?

Re: /focus and stealthies.

Secure Unit Frames do let you update anything related to clicks on them while in combat. Since stealth players are usually seen after you enter combat, the only way to be able to do any of the click functionality is to leave combat. This is why their names are dimmed and have ** around them. No arena mods can get around this because of how we have to keep track of your enemies by name only; we cannot use unit id's like target, focus, etc...

Hey, Grayhoof, I would really appreciate it if you could address this comment. First of all, I really love your add-on but it has one achilles' heel, in my opinion, and that is the inability to focus/target people if they appear after combat begins, most notably teams with stealthies.

I'm interested in figuring out a way to set people to focus after they pop out of stealth without and adding this functionality would make me a very, very happy camper. This would allow me to use /cast [target=focus] macros more effectively.

Is there something in Blizzard's add-on mechanics that prevents this?
Can it be gotten around in any way?

Thank you for reading and hopefully replying.

Would it be possible to add pet bars as well as maybe adding an onclick action for the middle mouse button.

I have the same problem with the frame hiding, it would be awesome if there was an easier way to reset the frame than deleting the WTF folder. Is it possible to just reinstall the mod? I would try this but I am at work.

Thanks

I think this is my favorite mod for arenas.

I do however have the same issue with the frame "hiding" from time to time.

I would really like to see some kind of a /reset position command added to future versions.
Hopefully in the near future

Feature request: cast bars

First of all, kudos on creating by and far the best arena frame mod available. It's neat, functional, appealing, and still presents the user with the right data in a very clean and organized fashion. Keep up the good work!

I do have a suggestion, though: cast bars. I'm learning LUA at the moment and realize that this is quite an undertaking to do, but I believe it to be one of the biggest upgrades you could make to this mod, along with Dopie's suggestion below. Simply put, when a particular opponent starts to cast something, place a cast bar below their name noting what they're casting.

Currently, I track opponent casts with use of a focus frame with an embedded cast bar. While this is good for 2v2 and 3v3, in 5v5 it's often difficult to see who's healing who when there's more than one healer. Such a feature added to Proximo would place it even farther above others.

Again, thanks for all the hard work. Hope you consider my idea :P

I have only a 2vs2 team and I wonder if is it possible to change the frame of Proximo to match a 2vs2 rather than a 5vs5 team? As it is now you get the first two positions filled and the rest of the frame stays empty taking screen space for no reason.

Thanks in advance
