SSArena Frames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r20090730
by: Shadowed [More]
Gives you a small frame that you can use while inside arenas to make targeting enemy players, as the screen shot shows health is displayed as a percentage and as the bar, mana is shown at the bottom of bar and is colored depending on the type. The little squares to the right of the screen are what class of person is targeting them from your team, to make it easier to assist and CC targets. You can also associate click actions that run macro text when a specific key and/or modifier combination is held down, along with only using it for specific classes.

Includes key bindings for targeting people through the arena frames, unlocking the arena frame through /ssaf ui -> General will show you an example frame to help you configure it.

Has three additional modules for enemy information. The first is cast information so you can directly see how many seconds left is on an enemies cast or channel. Second is basic CC timers like Fears, Traps, or Blind/Sap (Requires class icons to be enabled), both this and the cast info are 100% accurate and don't rely on guessing. And the last one is PvP trinket alerts which will show a PvP trinket next to there name when it's usable and hides it for 120 seconds until it's back up.

Due to changes in 3.0, you can now target people even after entering combat if you didn't see them, basically meaning you can enter combat and still target the stealther who pops out. You will have to see them before entering combat to use custom click actions, but general /target and /focus will work all the time.

Slash command: /ssaf

Date: Wed Jul 2 00:10:02 2008 +0000

It doesn't get synced to Proximo, but it will catch syncs from Proximo, Grayhoof would be the one to ask about making Proximo catch syncs from SSAF.

vard: Really just pets, all the arena frames are typically the same in base features.

Due to a bunch of changes that I just found out about an hour ago, not sure if I'll have a version out for 3.0 release next week as I also have a paper due, but will see what I can do since I have to recode most of this.

I personally much prefer the look of proximo as oppose to this addon, but this one show's enemy talent specs which is quite useful.. I also found this addon to be more reliable for targeting rogues/druids when they're unstealthed.

After re-logging in though, I find this addon no longer works.. I keep getting errors when I arena.. so right now neither this or proximo are working. =(

It doesn't help me to say you get errors, I need more info like file name, line number, and the error reason.

Given we can get things more accurately with 3.0, I'll be adding some basic CC and casting support soon.

I get this when typing /ssaf (menu comes up, but I still get the error)

...s\libs\AceGUI-3.0\widgets\AceGUIWidget-TreeGroup.lua:148: CreateFrame(): Couldn't find inherited node "InterfaceOptionsButtonTemplate"

And in arena when I first join I get this (and the frames simply don't show):

Interface\AddOns\SSArenaFrames\frame.lua:128: attempt to index field 'fontColor' (a number value)

And that error keeps spamming my screen whenever I get into combat.

marcos not working

/targetenemyplayer *name

/cast [mod: shift] Polymorph

also, i think haveing a " none " option except (alt,ctrl,shift,all) would be better.

wonderalex: Your macro is the issue, just use /target *name instead of /targetenemyplayer *name

Sunjo: I guess the libraries didn't get updated for some reason, I'll push a fix in a few minutes.

Is there any way to display sample bars? More importantly, it would be great if there was an option to make the bars grow upwards. I wasn't able to test in 3's and 5's to confirm, but I assume it grows downward.

An option to test the frames, please...
I don't want to need to spend an entire game in the arena to configure it.

Testing will be back soon, removed it since I had to rewrite how settings are saved.

It does grow down, I'll look into a grow up option but it's not a priority.

postage: You probably are running an old version of it, make sure you're using the one from the 17th

error questions

hello shadowed. i downloaded r976. i unzipped it into my addon folder, which i had previously been running arena unit frames. when i installed ur add, i just went into the addon folder and deleted the arena unit frame folder. and saw yours was there. when i rebooted comp, then brought up wow, and typed /ssaf ui menu nothing would happen, and various lui errors. so, im wondering if arena unit left some bits somewhere and i should make a new wtf, interface, and casche folder? maybe the way i deleted it wasnt correct. i will say, when i put proximo in addon folder, i could type ssaf ui menu, and it would come up. any advice?
thanks don
