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

* Vehicle buff frames will update and clear when you exit a vehicle

z-order: Yeah, I had that slider in a while back (it's still there, just hidden) but it didn't work for crap in WoW 3.x. I just need to take the time to take advantage of the new ordering stuff available in WoW 4.0.

performance: Thanks for the feedback! SBF has a *lot* of code, absolutely. Not all of it gets used all the time (for example, frame layouts only happen at login/reloadui) and the stuff that updates buffs is a section of code that I am always trying to streamline for efficiency. I will definitely do some new profiling on that section since a reasonable amount of change has happened to get SBF working with WoW 4.0, so something may have crept in that is causing that. Will check into it for sure!

count filter: Often requested, so I will add it in the next update

(If I didn't reply directly to your comment, I did definitely read it!)

Performance Issues

Issue

Firstly, I would like to say that I always keep my addons updated. Secondly, when in combat, my fps drops from 50 --> 15 when I have SBF enabled, along with other addons (mainly Auctioneer, Mapster, and Forte Xorcist). Without SBF enabled and my usual 140 other addons enabled, my fps stays at 50. With SBF enabled but those other listed addons (plus a few others) disabled, I maintain my 50 fps. But when all of those addons are enabled together, my fps drops dramatically. If I have all of my addons disabled except SBF, my fps is totally fine during and out of combat. So it seems like its a compatibility issue.

Description

http://i485.photobucket.com/albums/r...2at64805PM.png

Pay attention to the bars above my player health frame. I also have bars set up above my target frame that are currently not shown in the picture. Both buff frames have 'whitelist' checked and I set up many filters that would excel in PvP (ie tt~slow, tt~stun, etc.).

My Theory

My guess is that SBF is having a hard time filtering so many buffs/debuffs that it slows down my fps. Or the other mods use some type of old code that horrendously collaborate with the SBF code. I am not a programmer, so I am just spouting out stuff. Just trying to help.

My Attempts to Fix the Issue

I have tried setting the /sbf throttle to 0.5, 0.7, and even 1. I have tried /sbf fix. I reinstalled WoW and did NOT copy over my old WTF folder. I redid my whole entire UI from scratch. I tried out the new SBF beta (deleted my previous .lua files before using the new beta).

My System

I am not sure if this will help at all but its worth a shot. I am currently running on a Macbook Pro. Mac OS 10.6.5. 8GB Ram. 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT.

Gratitude

I do not mean to overwhelm you at all, I just wanted to let you know of this possible bug (could be my fault? who knows). I tried to provide you with as much info as possible. Anyway, I LOVE your addon. Thanks so much for spending time on such a lovely product. Keep it up! The WoW community and I really appreciate it.

Ok, thank you I will give it shot. I wasn't too worried if it was other people's would overwrite it. I just wanted to see it and/or commanding shout falling off if it was mine casted so I that I could refresh it appropriately.

reposting an unanswered frame order question

I am trying to raise the z-order of some basic buff/debuff frames to show over the top of other unit frames I have made but cannot find the slider anywhere in the setup menus.

I followed the guide at your website in setting them up but the z-order sliders do not appear anywhere to change it and force them to draw on top of my other unit frames. Did you remove this functionality? I've tried the 3.1.25 and 3.2.1 versions both to no avail. Am I missing something like another addon that provides these bars?

I know, but it's closest to what OP was need. Indeed you can't catch it if someone else refresh the duration, but it's hardly imaginable situation in solo tests

if I do n=Battle Shout&my&D<5, it will show everytime. Am I misunderstanding the use of these?

Tried the repair thing with no luck, I was flowing it through to my debuffs as well, but I turned that off just for testing.

Any help would be appreciated, great add-on btw.
Lower amount of case checks in your filter to see where it breaks.
I'd start from
n=battle shout&d<20

Hi, Im trying to use SBF to watch deadly poison counts on the default ui. I put the bar over the targets name and everything seems fine, but as soon as I select a new target, it gets "behind" the target frame, thus becoming invisible.
Anyway to solve that, so SBF icons are always shown?

Thx.

Im having trouble with the player and npc filters.

It may be that im misunderstanding something but after testing around with it, it seems like the player filter is doing nothing, while the npc one is filtering player and npc effects.

This is since the 4.0.3 patch but I only installed the addon recently so it may be I just didnt notice it before.

Tried reseting settings / deleting wtf / updating to the beta version but it had no effect.

The SBF 3.2 beta has click-to-remove-buff in it, it just hasn't been merged into the main project yet.

Okay either I missed it completely in the filters page or this may be an actual suggestion. If it is already implemented forgive me for being an idiot.

So I was wondering if it would be possible to add a new "count" filter for buffs.
ie: Only show the buff when it has equal to, less, or more (any operator would do) of a certain count.

So to show an example in-game:
I play a shaman. I only want to use Fulmination when my Lightning Shield has a total of 9 stacks.
So therefore I would like a big Lightning Shield buff to show up on my screen when it reaches 7 plus stacks.

Yes, I already have a single Lightning Shield buff on my screen with the counts on it but I was wondering if my above scenario would be plausible.
I haven't played a whole lot with your mod (an so I'm not sure if you can stack commands on a single filter but in my mind it would be something similar to this:

n=Lightning Shield&my&count>=7


Note: Also sent an e-mail to satrina@evilempireguild.org about the same thing.

It's less that it is "intended" and more that when you set a frame to clickthrough, you then have no way of knowing if the mouse is even over a given frame because the game completely ignores mouse the fact that the mouse may be over the frame. It's very much an all or nothing proposition.

As for the bar thing, enable mouse on the buff names that you almost certainly have overlaid on the bars (that's a temporary workaround; next update should fix that better)

Spells tab is also fixed in the next update

Having the same issues with the tooltips (clickthrough removes all tooltips). This might be intended though.
In addition, with clickthrough disabled, on all my buff bars the tooltips only appear when mousing over a tiny area of the bar just to the left or right of the icon (depending on bar orientation). This is also the only clickable area.
This only affects the bars, the show tooltip toggle for icons works correctly. Disable right click however, does not (still shows the addon blocked message when right clicking the icons).
I also can't get the settings from the spells tab (in particular the always warn checkbox) to save.
