Satrina Buff Frames 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.1.25
by: Satrina, father0fnine

SBF has a maintainer!
I have to say, I am amazed by the number of people who just kept plugging along. It makes me feel bad that I do not have the time to keep working on this myself - you guys are all awesome! The good news is that a new maintainer has been found. Meet father0fnine, who is taking over SBF. I'm sure you'll all show him as much love as you showed me all these years

* Fixed an error where size limited frames get the wrong buffs
* Some small fixes for ButtonFacade. Some skins will still not get border colours. I've sent a message to StormFX to see if there's something I am missing or if it's just an inconsistency with some BF skins
* Added the ability for users to add custom sounds for expiry warnings. See SatrinaBuffFrame/Media/SBFSounds.lua for directions
* When changing SBF profiles, the list of frames shown in ButtonFacade setup will update correctly

Version 3.1.7

* You can now reset the profile for the current character by using /sbf reset

Version 3.1.5

* ha filters should behave a little bit better now
* Vehicle buff frames will update and clear when you exit a vehicle
* Hopefully (hopefully!) the overextending bar thing is gone finally.

* Added vehicle to the list of units for buff frames on the general tab

Version 3.1.0
* Filters now work completely for any unit
* In addition to assigning a unit to each frame, each frame is designated as holding buffs or debuffs, and is designated as a whitelist or a blacklist

* Filters now work with the whitelist or blacklist setting for the frame

That would be perfect

Would there be any kind of work-around to do that in the current version?

I'm still living with it.

I knew that you were already aware of the problem, so there was no sense in continuing to cry about it.

All right, sorry for the dealy folks. Got called off on a last minute business trip, and now back.

First - I see not a lot of remarks on temporary weapon enchants. Are you all just living with it, or did the last release actually fix it? =)

Next, answering the first two pages of posts. If I didn't answer your question, I apologise - please post again so I am reminded.

People with ButtonFacade problems: ButtonFacade is on my priority list right now. If you're still having troubles with BF, respond here or drop me an email ([email protected]), let me know what your problem is. Thanks!

metalicmongoose: You'll be able to do that in 3.2

1) How about in SBF 3.2 I let you define layouts that will automatically be selected based on talent spec or stance/form instead?
2) That's something I am working towards that requires a fair amount of change under the hood. It probably won't be in 3.2, though.
3) A fairly common request, yep
4) Another common request that will make it into 3.2

xtoq: True sticky frames that do exactly that will be in 3.2

duhwhat (and Kaelth): Borders for bars are coming

Gurba: Custom borders for buffs are coming

Ohidosee: Probably the most requested feature for SBF. Will be in 3.2

sk_reD: SBF won't do that for you, sorry

Jakkhel: You should be able to use the my filter to show only those effects that you put. However, if the Dancing Rune Weapon attributes the debuff to you, then you'll be out of luck

And now what many of you have been wating for, the SBF 3.2 feature list! -> http://evilempireguild.org/SBF/dev.php
This list should be pretty much complete, though I am sure I forgot at least one thing that is meant to go in. If I forgot your pet suggestion, now is a good time to email me and remind me what it is! I plan to make one more maintenance version of 3.1 before starting 3.2 development. As usual, when I have something that is more-or-less stable, I'll put it up on the SBF beta project.

(Audrey - email wall o' text incoming soon!)

Is there a way to display both vehicle buffs and player buffs in the same frame while using a vehicle?
(e.g. [vehicle buffs here][player buffs here])

I have tried flowing a frame set to show vehicle buffs into one set not to, except the parent frame (of course) will not show the vehicle buff.

Am I missing something simple here?

I love this addon. I wonder, though, if certain changes could be added to make it a bit more useful to me.

1. Conditional Filters
A unique tab (perhaps called "LUA") could be added where LUA coding can be used to specify any number of conditions for which certain buffs/debuffs will appear. Provide a way to name these conditional statements and then allow those names to be used in the 'Filter' tab.

An example of how this could be useful to me:
I'm a resto druid (main spec) feral dps (off spec) but I use the same SBF layout for both specs. As feral, I like to see when certain debuffs are present on my targets (Trauma/Mangle for example) which would be useless for me to see as resto. Likewise, as resto I like to see when certain buffs are on me (replenishment, mana tide, etc) that I don't need to see as feral.

With the LUA filter addition to SBF, I could perhaps create the following filters (this won't be proper LUA coding, but you should get the idea):

Name: MangleBot
If HasEnergy("player") then

- This madeup code would check to see if I'm in cat form ("HasEnergy") and if that's true it will use the SBF filters 'n~"Mangle"' and 'n="Trauma"'

Name: Resto
If HasMana("player") then

2. Suppress/Replace Redundant Icons
It would be nice if a filter could be set up to show one particular image whenever a buff/debuff is present, and allow for the ability to suppress redundant buffs/debuffs. For example, since Trauma has the same effect as Mangle, I would prefer to see the Mangle icon any time either debuff is present and I'd like to not have both debuffs show if both happen to be up at once.

3. Copy Layout Settings
I use similar layout settings (how and were the buffs/debuffs are shown) between each of my toons, but I have different filters set for several of them. It would be nice to be able to copy the positioning of one toon's layout without also copying that toon's filters or overriding the current toon's filters. As far as I know, the only way to copy settings between toons is to copy the other toon's profile, which copies (and replaces all settings).

4. Re-implement a "Buff" / "Debuff" filter
I realize that 'h' was once used to filter debuffs, which is no longer used because of the option to click a checkbox and show only buffs or debuffs. But I am trying to make a buff/debuff frame for my target that shows only buffs if the target is friendly and shows only debuffs if the target is hostile.

I tried using the following filters:

Obviously that didn't work since 'h' is no longer recognized.

Sorry for the wall of text and ty for your time and for this great addon.

Hi I've read the known issues, and the upcoming features, and I didn't see this answered. If there was a search option in WoWI comments....

Anywho, I have a question I'm sure is often answered, so I apologize in advance. Is there anyway to make a child frame appear below the parent frame, similar how the default debuffs appear underneath the buffs, and will move down when you have more than one row of buffs? I like the flowing, but I want the debuffs to be on the next line, not on the same line as the buffs. Is this a planned feature in a future version that I missed in the planned features section?
There is absolutely no evidence to support the theory that life is serious.

Do you mean the Defense buff that you put up while mounted? If so, you need to specifically check "Show vehicle buffs" under the general options tab.

can it be done

Before I embark on this project, I wanted to bounce this off you Satrina, to see if it's even doable. I want to make a customized buff frame for IBF and VB durations. What I want them to look like are long, vertical bars, BUT as they deplete, I would like the frame of the bar to have a BF border that remains visible until the buff expires completely. something like this: http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/8016/95472136.jpg

Everything is working perfectly, I can adjust it exactly teh way I want up to one thing.. The BUFF's are not colloured to the type they are (Weapons buffs = Purple , Magic Buffs = Blue , Non dispellable grey, etc etc) I really really wish you could make it like that, because at this time its very unclear if I actually have a weapon buff or not..

WoW crashed during a /reloadui, all SBF profiles deleted, got the welcome message on next log in...
It's going to be fun spending a few hours recreating them all, for sure.
Needed to vent somewhere

Is it possible to set up borders around the bars? I love everything about the addon but that's one thing I haven't figured out yet ;P If anyone could help I would appreciate it.
