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

* 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
* 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

Hi Satrina, big fan of your work.

I was wondering if there was a way to Whitelist spells my pet/vehicle casts?

E.g Engulfed in flames (Malygos) and Pyrite (FL).

Thanks in advanced.

Yup Recluse that's exactly what I wanted - works nicely.

Now all I have to do is implement this in with SBF to only display buffs 18-x

Wonder if this code could be translated into a filter, that would make it simple to modify the displayed buffs in SBF

So, I know about the 'my' filter, and how to use it... But I'm curious if there is the ability to merely change the display of 'my' filtered buffs without filtering -out- buffs.

As an example, show all debuffs on the target, but make them black&white except for the buffs I have cast. Or, make mine larger than everyone elses, so on and so forth. Anything like that in SBF?

Is my only solace to make two target debuff groups, one filtered, one not?

Sorry if I'm overlooking something obvious.

Originally posted by Photekk Is there a way to determine the number of buffs through LUA? Either to return the data so that I can use it or just through a simple if/then statement
Something like this? Only advice I can offer you with it is that for me, mounting and dismounting took a second to register that the buff was gained/lost. In an addon I made for personal use, I had to create a 1 second delay to get it to properly detect that I was mounted or dismounted.

local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
f:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...) return self[event](self, event, ...) end)

local function CountBuffs()
	local i = 1
	local buff = UnitBuff("player", i)
	while buff do
		i = i + 1
		buff = UnitBuff("player", i)
	return i - 1

function f:UNIT_AURA(...)
	-- Only if the buff change involves the player
	if select(2,...) == "player" then
		local buffCount = CountBuffs()
		if buffCount > 18 then
			-- Do something
We'd be together, but only diamonds last forever...

I'd figure I'd ask you this question as well seeing as you wrote the code for the best buff/debuff tracking mod.

Is there a way to determine the number of buffs through LUA? Either to return the data so that I can use it or just through a simple if/then statement, ie:

if Auras.beneficial("player") > 18
then ...

I want to create a window textured once I reach a certain number of buffs (for it to appear only after a certain number of buffs) .. is there any code you know of that returns this info?

Vampyrate - Hm, 3.1 should set up out of the box the same way that 3.0 did. I'll tale a look.

There is some odd behaviour with buttonfacade. Changing the BF colours will also change the timer colours. In addition it shows the umm how do you call them? Those red squares that work as a center for the single (de)buff.

Beliablue - Some people have had that problem before. I haven't been able to reproduce it to find out what's going on, but I suspect it's something funny in the saved variables. If you wouldn't mind sending me your SatrinaBuffFrame.lua file from your WTF/Account/<AccountName>/SavedVariables, it'd help to track it down I hope. You can send it to me as a PM, or by email to [email protected]. In the meantime, the only solution seems to be for you to do /sbf reset and set up the frames for that character again =(

Sorian - 3.2 will have all kinds of options like that for all you visually-oriented people

Vampyrate - The old buff handling code is incompatible with new features. I'm not sure what details of operation you're referring to, but you definitely should be able to make 3.1 work the same way as 3.0 did.
Well I meant in the sense that the older version worked right out of the box. All I did was adjust visual elements like the position, the scale, fonts, etc. The newer version looked like it had way more of a "first time" config.

I have show tracking checked in global options, but it doesn't seem to be showing my tracking at all. Is there something else I have to do?
I guess my brain will never work right. At least Im pretty.

Crowfeather - That's trivial to add, sure

Aethwyn - Adding a visibility option for that is easy like above. There's also the help and harm filters that you can use, might do what you need. I added the documentation for them on the SBF site finally.

Is it or could it be possible to make a buff frame appear/hide depending on whether a target is friendly or hostile?

Id like for SBF to completely replace the aura module of my unitframe (going to be PB4). Now the trouble is, Id like to display certain frames to show/not show based on wether Im solo, in a party or raid. Is this somehow possible?

YJMark - If you mean cooldown sweeps, that's enabled on the Icon tab. For your other question, that sort of tracking is planned for 3.2
"Cooldown Sweeps".....lol.....makes perfect sense now that you mention it Thanks for the help.

Lushy - I did that by going to the Filter tab, and typing n=Invisibility in the New Filter text box, then click the "Add Filter" button.

Very nice addon. Gratz.

I am a mage.
I have a noob problem. I have made a new Frame (SBF3 called "own buffs") close to my health bar. I use it to monitor buffs like Arcane Potency, Trinket activation, etc.... I am trying to add the spell "Invisibility" to that frame, but i don't know how to do it (is not in the spell list).

I am used to use Invisibility in General Vezax, click it and immediately right-click on it to remove it and resume dps. So, is important for me that it appears in that SBF3 Frame.

Anyone knows how to add it? is there any White list?

Thanks in advance

Hi Satrina,
I wanted to report a strange problem. I glanced through the known issues and short of being blind and stupid I didn't see anything mentioned.

I started a shaman and I noticed that Rockbiter buff is screwy with SBF.
Let me explain....
Apply Rockbiter buff
I noticed it initially when I went to rebuff rockbiter with under 2 minutes left on it.
I would recast and the buff would not update the buff display.
So I thought, "Hmmm, that's weird." So I right clicked to remove the buff and recast. Then the buff would show 0.0 for time but show the proper name.
So I right click to remove and re-apply and it would be fine. Happened everytime I did it last night.
I know, it sounds like I've been smoking to much wacky weed but I swear it happened.

Any other info you need I'll be happy to provide. Not my SSN though.

EDIT: I just noticed it's picking up the name of the weapon being buffed. So if it's the Titanic Buttbreaker of Stamina; the name will be the buff with a 0.0 time. Also, I don't need to remove it to re-apply and sometimes I do. I can't seem to understand what the trigger is.
I kind of wish it would throw an error. At least you all wouldn't be looking at me like that then!

EDIT2: Ok, guess you missed my comment or I repeated something that's know and I missed or something?
