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
* 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

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

Version 3.1.0

Have another problem using it on the Mac, because the filesystem is case sensitive. The lines in SBFOptions\SBFOptions.toc need to read
rather than "libs\..." (upper case L).

Will fix the paths, thanks!

The cyCircled one I can't reproduce. Will poke around a bit more.

I'll see if I can narrow the cycircled one down more.

Right before I saw it I removed all the SBF settings under WTF (in multiple areas) so that might have been related. I figured that'd be the cleanest way to try the betas.

More info on the cycircled problem.

Removed the WTF directory completely, logged in, disabled all addons except cycircled, sbf and sbfoptions, and I still get that exact crash on doing "/sbf options".

With cycircled disabled I don't get that error.

Seems to be cycircled version 58877.2 using wowace updater.

Edit: Is it possible this is an addon loading order problem? Looks like if SBF loads before cycircled the code in SBFcyCircled.lua might never trigger. Should that stuff be in an OnEnable instead perhaps? Stabbing in the dark here.

Edit2: the order thing seems slightly more plausible in that on the Mac when I do a directory listing, because of the case sensitivity, "SatrinaBuffFrame" comes before "cyCircled" whereas on a PC this isn't the case.

Looks like I forgot to add cyCircled to the OptionalDeps list in SatrinaBuffFrame.toc. I'll bet if you edit yours and add it, all will be well.

Putting cyCircled into the OptionalDeps fixed the problem.

I have another problem. The bars background color picker doesn't include the alpha value slider so I can't make the bar background transparent.

I think I would classify transparent bar background as a wishlist, not a bug 2.8 is feature complete at this point, but I'll take a look.

Is there anything in SBF that would use an inordinate amount of UI memory? I'm not sure what it is but when I'm running SBF my memory utilization in raids goes through the roof. Tuesday in BT running Buffalo 2 I was using 45MB max and today after clearing through Illidan it got up to 110MB using SBF.

Edit: I'm not saying it was SBF, just that SBF was the only thing that really changed between Tuesday and Thursday. The memory was seemingly going nowhere, there was 110MB of usage but the breakdown on usage by mod didn't add up and SBF was only using (according to performancefu) less than 1MB. I use standalone libs so one mod wouldn't be getting all the blame for ace usage anyway.

SBF and Buffalo2 both use Ace2 libraries. Many other addons also use Ace2 libraries. When these libraries are embedded (packaged inside an addon instead of running as a separate addon that the first depends on, so you don't need to worry about the libraries at all) and multiple addons are using them, you will not get accurate performance data, because the memory and CPU usage of all addons using the libraries is attributed to the one that loaded first. So if SBF loads first and then 5 other addons load and use Ace2 libraries, their resource usage will be blamed on SBF. There's a more detailed explanation on the Ace2 wiki (http://www.wowace.com/wiki/Ace2_Memory_Concerns).

Obviously I can't guarantee that this is what's going on in your case, but I can't think of any other reason SBF (or Buffalo2, which by the way is officially abandoned by its author and no longer supported) would report such enormous memory usage.

Hum. Unless you've stumbed across a neat memory leak case that shouldn't happen. I personally have never had SBF go above about 400KiB reported in heavy test cases. ClosetGnome gets the Ace library attribution for me, so some of SBF's useage is wrapped in its total, but again I've never had that peak more than about 3MiB in real useage.

Curious for sure.

Standalone libs FTW. I always know which addon is the culprit. :P

Huge thanks to all of you. As always, your unparalleled ability to break my addon was a driving force in refining the new features and killing off bugs.

See you when 2.9 goes into beta!

I noticed that you mentioned adding buffs for other units. I think this would be great even if the timers obviously didn't work because SBF allows a lot more configuration than something like PitBull's Aura system.

I'd also like to see/find some way of getting the SBF frames to inherit the visibility/alpha of the PitBull frames (or any frame, maybe by parenting). I ask this because I have my unit frame in the middle of the screen on the left and the target in the middle on the right with buffs below and debuffs above both unit frames. I'm using CombatFader plugin for PitBull in order to hide the player frame when not targetting an enemy or when my mana is full and would like some way to hook SBF into this visibility.

If not that, then maybe SBF could have it's own "combat fader" type portion which we could mirror settings manually.

Is it/would it be possible to set the buffs to only show self buffs? I want to use this on my paladin and shaman for their class buffs, but I can't figure out quite how to go about having it show ONLY buffs cast by myself/my totems.

Also, if it's not too much hassle, an option for a center alignment? Right now it's just they either grow one way or the other.
