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

* When changing SBF profiles, the list of frames shown in ButtonFacade setup will update correctly

Version 3.1.7

* ha filters should behave a little bit better now
* Vehicle buff frames will update and clear when you exit a vehicle

I was wondering if SBF highlights the buff type. e.g. targetting hostile character with a 'Blessing of Kings' buff - is there an option that will highlight it as magic like it does for debuffs?

Gap between icons / bars

In the layouts I have seen the bars / buffs are touching each other... for some reason I have gaps between mine... any ideas as to why this is? Maybe related to ButtonFacade that I am using for Bartender?

Time Ascending vs Duration Ascending?

What's the difference?

DreamLayout without ButtonFacade

Hello, before I ask my question: great addon, it works like a charm!

My question is:
is it possible to add a DreamLayout-like background (in the end: a 1px-border) to each buff icon? At the moment I use Furbish for my auras, but I really would like to use the advanced options that SBF offers.

icon:SetTexCoord(.1, .9, .1, .9)
base:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\ChatFrame\\ChatFrameBackground",
                          edgeSize= 16, insets = { left = -1, right = -1, top = -1, bottom = -1 }})
        base:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0, .8)

This part of code I added in the "buffs.lua" of Furbish to give it the look I wanted, and I just wanted to know if something similar is possible within SBF. I am just too dumb to find a fitting spot for it. ^^ I am not able to code really, I just modifiy things here and there. In the end I want to avoid using ButtonFacade, because it doesn't work that well distorting the textures at my UI-scale instead beeing a fixed 1px-border through the addition of a backdrop.

Thanks for your time in advance!

Another observation:
The temporary weapon enchants' duration also start to blink almost immediately after leaving an arena or battleground before victory. If I play until the scoreboard pops up and leave that way, the weapons are usually fine. If I leave early, they get bugged. I'm usually in combat when I leave as well. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Temp weapon enchant problem

First of all, I'd like to say that SBF are the best buff frames featuring the default blizzard layout that I have found.

However, I am having a problem with temporary weapon enchants, rogue poisons to be specific.


I have removed the temp weapon enchants from the main buff frame via "e" entered in the blacklist.

I have added a new buff frame and added only weapon enchants to display via "e" entered in the whitelist.

I apply poison to 3 weapons, the new buff frame designated for weapon buffs works perfectly fine for the weapons that I apply poison to that I have equipped.

*PROBLEM* However, when I switch to the 3rd weapon I applied poison to (not originally equipped when poisoning). The icon & timer do not change, and stay the same for for the originally 2 poisoned weapons (the ones I had equipped when applying).

Any help with this?

That is unfortunate. Hmm...

Exiting and reentering the game world while temporary weapon enchants are still on my weapons has also caused it to happen. Maybe that is something you didn't test for (dual-wielding). You mentioned Rockbiter. Well, this happens on my Shaman as well, but I've only seen it while duel-wielding. I usually have Windfury on my main-hand and Flametongue on my off-hand.

So I spent two full casts of Rockbiter on my shaman's weapon zoning in and out of an instance. Could not make the temp enchant timer bounce to zero doing that. Anyone with another way to reproduce, I am all ears!

Bug with vehicle buffs

I've got issue with Vehicle Buffs option. I have player buffs flowed into another frame and it seems that option doesn't work correct in that case. Buffs show for a second when you apply them then disappear. It's very easy to see when apply argent tournament shield buffs.

also got that error

First thanks for the work you put in to craft this addon and I did look through your help info links to try and resolve my issue first.

I have a frame set up to track the debuffs I apply to my target. I recently started playing with the expiry tab and wanted to sound a noise and text warning in SCT. That all worked just fine except I was getting a sound and a text notification for Everyones Debuffs when I use the "All Buffs" selection.

Now logically I thought yeah the "Select Buffs" should be the ticket , it will only sound and text when my debuffs are expiring. But for some reason it wont. If I have the "Fade Icon" option selected that works but no noise or text.

Any help would be appreciated at your leisure.

Thank you,

I am haveing trouble with SBF, my Art of War Buff is not always displayed. I have found no common reason for this. I have only noticed this since 3.2.2 but it may have been happening before. Any Fixes?

I Need SBF for my lovely ui

He probably means the new 3.2.2 patch that just went live an hour or two ago.

Edit: And I suspect it might be the good old "Load Out of Date" PEBKAC (lol, I learn new words from Satrina!).
