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

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

CthuluDragon - that's an oversight in 3.0 that will be remedied in 3.1

Crowfeather - I'll poke around and see what I can see. The buff should appear as soon as the UI is told that buffs have updated. If it's not appearing while other buffs are coming and going as normal, there's something delaying the buff appearing. Your filters should not affect that at all.

xjtufans - That will be fixed in the next release

Qupe - I haven't looked at temp enchants in a long while, will look into it when I get some time

Having an issue with weapon buffs disappearing if I dismiss them in the buff frame. They only reappear if I open and close the options panel.

I'm trying to setup SBF to replace and enhance elk Buff Bars but one thing seems to be missing and I can't figure out how to set this up. There is no buff tooltip if I have a bar showing, nor can I right click a bar and dismiss a buff. I have to use the icon. And if I don't have the icon showing then I don't get any tooltip at all, nor can I dismiss a buff at all.

Am I just missing a setting or can SBF just not do that?

Iīve been further tweaking my configuration with an 8th(!) Buff Frame for my feral druid. Itīs supposed to show only one thing - the duration of Savage Roar on me. Problem with Savage Roar is - unlike most other buffs the duration can be diffrent everytime I get it depending on how many combo points I used for it. This leads to bars not having the proper length.
Also - maybe related to this, maybe not - sometimes it takes up to 10 seconds until the bar actually appears after I used Savage Roar. Could this be because of my rather complex filtering configuration?

I like this adddon very much, but I find a bug with this addon.
I use a filter to show buff and debuff the remain time less than 60 second to buff frame3. It works well with buff, but for debuff, it will not show in frame2. And the frame3 I show as bar, it can't display a tip about buff and debuff.
Could you fix this issue? Thanks.

Thanks always for the reports so I can track things down!

My humble request:

Notooltip and nomouseover feature. As you mentioned before that you will do that just somehow slipped away from the todo list.

Many thanks for THE BEST buff addon ever!

I'm trying to implement mirroring of debuffs and am having some problems getting it to work. I've read through all of the manual pages on evilempire.org but haven't managed to get this working. Not sure if it's a bug or whether I'm just not understanding the config. Here's what I'm trying to do.

Frame 1 - All buffs on me.
Frame 2 - All debuffs on me (list of 20 icons at bottom of screen).
Frame 3 - Debuffs on my target that I can cast (list of 6 bars, centre screen)
Frame 4 - All debuffs on me (list of 6 bars, centre screen).

Now, the problem is that I can either get my debuffs to show in frame 2 or frame 4, but not both. I've tried setting up a filter to move debuffs to frame 4 ("4:h"), which sends them to frame 4, but then they don't appear in frame 2. I've tried ticking the "mirror" option for frame 4 both with and without the filter. Neither work.

Thanks, in advance, for your help.

**Edit: removed my query about filtering other unit buffs. Just found out this is due in 3.1 **

I've posted a bug report on your portal; SBF fails to apply the ButtonFacade skin on subsequent loads when it's set to the Blizzard skin. This is a problem because I've replaced UI-QuickSlot with a custom file. This custom border texture is applied when I change the skin setting, but the next time the UI is loaded, SBF seems to not apply any textures on buffs when the ButtonFacade skin is set to "Blizzard", and uses the default debuff overlay texture on debuffs instead of the specified border texture. Other addons correctly apply the replacement texture file when the Blizzard skin is selected.

Edit: It actually appears that the problem is slightly different than I'd originally thought. If the ButtonFacade skin is set to "Blizzard" when SBF loads, it will not apply the skin, and will not apply any skin changes made after loading either. If the skin is something other than "Blizzard" when SBF loads, the skin is correctly applied, and all skin changes made during the session are immediately applied.

I'm having this problem as well. I have frames 1 and 2 hidden, and use frames 3 and 4 for short-duration buffs (via a "3<=5" filter) on me and my debuffs on the target respectively. In both 3 and 4, sometimes they work, and sometimes when the buffs show up the bar and timer are "stuck".

The one thing I've tried is adjusting the throttle value, but as far as I can tell that has no effect on this bug at all.

(this is using 3.0.7, by the way)
Some further observations on the behavior:
* confirmed that frame 1 doesn't do this - I set up frame 1 as the short-duration buff frame by filtering everything with duration over 5 minutes to a hidden frame. Never saw it get stuck. Unfortunately, I can't think of a similar workaround to make frame 2 a "my debuffs on the target" frame or I'd test that as well.
* when a frame gets stuck this way, it will stay stuck until all buffs shown are gone, although that doesn't always seem to get it unstuck.
* when a frame is stuck, the bar lengths don't update at all, and the timers only update when the entire list is updated, i.e. when a buff is added or removed
* the length of stuck bars is based on position, i.e. the first bar will always have the same length, even if what buff it actually is changes as items move up or down on the list.

I have buff flowing going for frames 1 and 2 and that works perfectly.

I have a third frame designated to hold just a few buffs/procs (Commanding Shout, Sword and Board, Glyph of Revenge), and while the icons come and go when they're supposed to, none of the timers or bars associated with the buffs work. The bars seem to start at whatever length they want to (I can't figure out a pattern or anything) and don't update until I drop combat or they're refreshed and the timers very rarely update.

I'll take an SS and see if we can come up with a problem that can be fixed!

EDIT: Something interesting about this little bug - buffs in Frame 1 work perfectly, the timer bar and icon all do exactly what they're supposed to. However when I shift+click on a buff and move it to Frame 3, it goes completely wacky. Is there like a "make buffs not work" box that I have checked for Frame 3? hahaha <3

I'm thinking about downloading this when I get home to my PC and giving it a try, but I just noticed the note on the buffs on other units. Can you still add debuffs on a target (raid boss) to a frame and use filters for them?

If it isn't in the spell list, it hasn't proc'd for you yet. The spell list not pre-populated, rather it is built of effects that have been applied to you. Go shoot something =)
