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

SBF 3.2 with clickable buffs
Go here:

Version 3.1.25
+ "my" filters are fixed
+ Added support for thrown weapon poisons

+ Spells tab works again
+ Added option in the spells tab to show/not show buffs by spellID
+ Added options in the global tab to show default buff frame and default enchant frame
+ SBFOptions will now make the background for names visible when configuring to help you not overlap the icons when positioning (which can cause clicks on icons to not register)

Version 3.1.24

Version 3.1.23
+ Fix an error when tracking is enabled

Version 3.1.22

- The scale slider has finally been removed. Use the individual sizing mechanisms on the tabs, and set spacing between buffs on the layout tab
- Some performance tweaks courtesy of Yarlir@Area52
- You won't be able to click off buffs (same with pretty much all buff addons right now)

Version 3.1.20

Version 3.1.19
- Fixed an error between SBF and Parrot
- Increased maximum number of buff frames

Version 3.1.18

- Fixed an error during buff updates when fast bar is enabled (line 177)
- Some performance tweaks

Version 3.1.17

Version 3.1.16

- Buff timers and bars should refresh correctly when first appearing in frames

Version 3.1.15
- Fix dumb error in 3.1.14

Version 3.1.14

- Added option for icon opacity
- If you set a the height of a frame's bars to be greater than its width, the bar will automatically become vertical (experimental)
- Totems and weapon enchants should work correctly with my filters now

Version 3.1.13

Version 3.1.12
* When SBF can determine the caster of an effect, it will put the name in the effect's tooltip
* The list on the Spells tab should populate correctly now

Version 3.1.9
* Fixed an error when checking castable status (SBFUtil line 86)

Version 3.1.8
* 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
3.1.7 is version bookkeeping to keep in sync with a massive fubar I had at Curse

Version 3.1.6
* Bars should no longer jump directly from 00:01 to 00:00
* Buff flows will no longer reset when you re-enter the options after setting them up
* Fixed an error that was occuring for new users and people converting from 3.0, preventing them from using SBF

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

Version 3.1.5
* TOC version has been updated for WoW 3.1 :rolleyes:
* SBF will no longer allow you to try and flow buffs for different units. (There's no way to make that work without a major code revamp)
* Buff and Name help in non-English localisations has been updated with the current English version. Translators will need to re-translate them
* 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.
* SBF and SBFOptions now has an actual licence besides All Rights Reserved. Check out licence.txt in the zipfile, or read online:

* Shaman weapon imbues should not get moved into frames using the to filter any more
* Cooldown sweeps should not flicker in combat now
* Cooldown sweeps should not occasionally cause an error

Version 3.1.1
* Because it wouldn't be an SBF release without me forgetting something ridiculous, SBF will no longer say "hi" to you when you click on a buff
* 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
* Each frame now maintains its own filter list
* Filters now work with the whitelist or blacklist setting for the frame

SBF not showing Shaman Weapon Enchant

I can't get it to show my shamans' weapon enchant (earthliving weapon, etc). I have checked and changed many options in the menu and can't get it to show. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this?

With satrina I am able to single out encounter buffs and debuffs... except for buffs cast by pets that I can't filter out. Plz add a filter for them! Or incude their buffs in the 'party' filter, so that !party removes them.

Not much of a new version, just TOC bump.
SBF by itself works fine, even 3.1

Problem with timer text

I seem to be having a rather odd issue with text beneath spells that only expire when I prompt them to. (Inner Will, Inner Fire, Recaptured Mana, etc). I've attached an image below to clarify what I mean. Any help on how to fix this issue? Thanks very much!

SBF Replacment

is the best replacment for Satrina Buff Frames 3. I think its even better than SBF because it has much more options - only thing to handel is the compleaty different option menu of Raven. I worked together with the Author to add all futures of SBF in his buffmod.

Raven Filter
will add a 'Spell list' dropdown menu to the Buff and Debuff tab of Raven Bar Groups so you can filter buffs/debuffs by Spell ID like in SBF

Error - Satrina - Any Ideas?

Ok, there seems to be an issue with Satrina/Ace3. I have Sun Art Viewport installed which is an Ace3 add on. When this is active, Satrina doesn't work. Installing Ace3 separately has no effect on it.

So, for now, I can't use both add ons which sucks....
The error is listed below, any idea if a new developer can be found on this?
Would really be a shame if this add on dies. Its the best buff add on out there. I have tried Raven and AuraFrames, but they don't hold a candle to this add on when speaking of things like ability procs etc...

This is the error I am getting:

Recent Issues

For those of you experiencing issues with any buff groups that have the option to show the buff name enabled, you need to install Ace3 as a separate addon (At least until this starts getting updated again)

This issue is being caused by SBF overriding an Ace3 function with one of its own functions. If you have an addon installed that embeds of a higher version of Ace3 libraries than those included with SBF, and that addon loads after SBF (usually addons load alphabetically), the library upgrades itself and overrides the flawed SBF function with the Ace3 function that is supposed to be there.

Pull up your SBF configuration (/sbf config) and keep it open.

Open ButtonFacade (/bf), click on addons, then select SBF and change the skin from Blizzard to whatever skin you're trying to use.

BF won't skin the frames that aren't showing. So if you don't have a debuff (or the test bars from the config open), it's not skinning that frame.

AF is definitely the closest thing I've found to SBF. Its configuration can be a bit annoying (I hate the blue highlight used to show the frames when they're unlocked), but the functionality (super amazing filtering system) is certainly there. Overall I love it and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an SBF replacement.

Still using SBF here as there isn't a single addon around wich works the same way as SBF.

I tried Raven but even with is zillion options it's missing the ONE important one wich is not being able to limit the amount of Buffs or Debuffs you want to be shown, it simply has a built in limit of 50 unlike SBF.

Atm i wanna stick with SBF but i'm sure sooner or later it's gonna be broken once and for all. All i need is an addon wich does the same wich is:

3 Rows of 8 Buffs
1 Row of Debuffs (Oversized iconsize 60)

I removed this massage for my UI - just download the UI (LeilaUI Version: v3.13) and take out my SBF folders

also you shoud be able to klick off buffs from non filterd bargroups
