DHUD for 2.4  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 20400
by: BDelacroix [More]
This is a version of Drathal's HUD (last maintained by Caeryn) that fixes it for use in 2.4.

Nothing is changed from his mod except to fix the the issues that 2.2 brought to light.

1. Constant 0 Unknown [] display when no target is selected.
2. Pet bars appearing when they shouldn't.
3. Other minor bugs that caused incorrect error strings to report.

I had fixed #1 on my own when the patch came out. While trying to fix the petbars I found a post on the official forums from Laindir outlining his fixes for the rest.

Rather than reinvent the wheel I just implemented his fixes for the rest of it.

I take no credit for creating this. I didn't create it. Drathal Did.

I take no credit even for fixing it as someone else posted the fixes on a public forum.

I just changed the code and posted the results for anyone else who likes to use DHUD.

There are no feature changes.
20400: Changed TOC to be updated for 2.4.

I don't do DHuD anymore. I'm not sure if there was a way to do so or not.

DaHUD mod

I've uploaded a style mod for DaHUD that has the general look and feel of DHud. Feel free to try it out.

DHUD dies with 3.0

Hey folks.

First, stop shooting the messenger.

I "fixed" this mod when it broke down on an earlier patch because there were no other mods out like it that did what I wanted.

Here is the bad news. I didn't write the original code. Reading another person's code is one of the most horrid things you can ever experience.

I've been spending time trying to get this to work with wow 3.0. However, the combination of secureheadertemplates with apparently secret names and the changes to setplayerbuff/getunitbuff et. al. and reading that code and the fact that I've fixed up a graphic template to look and act like DHUD with the new ACE based DaHUD means I have little motivation to destroy my brain trying to "fix" this.

It is very likely that DHUD will die with 3.0.

If anyone wants to know. They got rid of GetPlayerBuff() and replaced it with 3 functions. Not such a big deal by itself.

On top of that, you can't update frames in combat unless you have some secure header template and do some mystery thing to them. Ah see how obtuse? Just as abstract and obtuse as the very very little documentation that has been put out about them. "Read our code and figure it out" about sums that up. No thanks. This all ties in to my poor assessment on today's programmers, but that's a different story and likely due in part to the fact that "things where done better in my day".

stays when i am not in comabt. how do i fix

i cant right click to bring a drop down for the menu. i have to manually type in the command which can be annoying in some situations.

is there a way to get it to only display when you enter combat. i dont like it showing w hen i am not in combat. like when i target someone and it pops up. i'd rather not have that if im clicking on npcs in a city or something it can be annoying. how can i fix t hat do you know? btw thanks for fixing this mod

Cool, and how is this DHUD any different from MetaHUD?
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...7-MetaHud.html

Sorry if I sound like an a**, I don't mean to, but with so many addons out there, I just try to keep up with new/updated addons that are very similar to other addons..

The difference is DaHud (the ace mod) is not DHud.

I have actually made a style for DaHud that looks and acts like DHud.

Ok, I changed the TOC to work for 2.4.

I haven't noticed a memory leak using this myself. I'll tell you what I'll do, though.

I do have a mod I use that tells me the amount of memory my mods are using. I'll monitor that to see if it happens and find out what I can do.

an update for 2.4 would be great-- also it just recently started happening but there appears to be a memory leak-- ill try re-installing it to see if it goes away but atm the addon keeps sucking up memory at an alarming rate cause the game to eventually slow down...

This still works with 2.3 as is. Not really worth changing the LOC # just for that.

Thanks for doing this, I was using a work around, but this is much better.


It's just a shame the best HuD for WoW is being left for dead and not developed (publicly anyway) any more.
