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

Heh, found a tiny use of of it but that's something I can live without.
I've created a frame for "imminent danger" kind of debuffs like mark of the faceless, nature's fury and stuff like that. Figured I could add Hodir's biting cold to that one but only if it reached a stack of 3. I'll just have to keep track of from my normal debuff frames.

Buffs changing frames when zoning.

I currently have different buff frames set up filtered by buff duration. One bar for "aura's" (ex. Pally aura's and any buff with a duration of 1h or longer) and one for "short buffs" (anything shorter than 1h). Sometimes buffs will move from the "short buffs" frame to the "aura" frame. This happens when I zone, but it isn't something that happens every time (maybe 1/3 of the time). It becomes most annoying with buffs that have counts (Priest's Inner Fire), because I'm not showing counts on my "aura" frame. I didn't know if maybe there was a setting somewhere that I missed to keep this from happening, or if it was a bug of some sort.

Hi Satrina,

Excellent addon. I have a quick question that I couldn't find an answer for on your website.

You mention on your website that it's possible to determin if a buff is cast by the player, the target, etc, but you didn't mention if it's possible to see if it's cast by a raid/party member vs an enemy/npc.

Is it possible to either filter out party/raid member buffs or to filter npc/enemy buffs? I'd like to be able to create a frame that shows buffs which are cast by npcs or bosses in raid encounters without having to specify the buff names.

Dendrek - The ability for that differentiation is now there, but the filters aren't yet. I'd imagine something like that can make it into 3.1.13

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.

Awesome to hear Satrina. For now, I have added the code in for the option myself.

Need help with organizing buffs

Satrina! This is one hell of an addon, I can't even imagine all the coding that went into this. Great job Need help with one thing though:

I've read up on how flowing and filters work in your mod and am still not quite sure how to do this pretty simple setup. What I want is for a designated number of my buffs (I have it set to about 14) to show up in a certain spot. Now, any number after that (15-x) I want to flow over to a new panel. I need this because my interface is very compact and only has room for a certain number of auras. With the new window I can then set the opacity to mouse-over and quickly take a look at the remainder of my buffs.

So far I've been able to create a new window as a Child of my default Buffs window, yet I cannot figure out how to (whether through a filter or flowing) have only the buffs that I'm not currently tracking (the remainder) show up in the new window I created. It's showing all of my buffs at the moment, instead of just the ones that didn't have room in the default buffs window.

Is there any way to have the buffs/debuffs flow over to a new window after a designated number?

Thanks a ton! Love the addon

I love this, its very nice. But just wondering if I can get something looking like this using it though.

I would just like to get that blue border on buffs, and a red one on debuffs etc etc

Edit: According to the FAQ it should colour code borders by default. I use ButtonFacade but I have turned on the option to disable it for SBF.

Also, I have timers set to use buff colours. But it only seems to be doing that for my debuffs. My buffs like Fortitude, Inner Fire etc all show yellow not blue text like expected from a buff.

Timer Question

Hi there. I just downloaded this addon, and it is AWESOME! However, I was wondering if there was a way to have the timer just do the standard graphical/analog clock countdown timer instead of digital numbers. The defualt Blizzard buff icons do that, and I'm just used to looking at my timers from that perspective instead of numbers. I looked in the Timer page, but could not quite figure it out (it was probably right in front of my face, but I missed it).

Also, is there a way I can configure a bar to track buffs on raid members that are not targets? For example, Beacon of Light or Sacred Shield. I cast those through Grid, so the target never becomes an official "target", but only a mouseover target. Plus, they will be on different people. I'd like to track that so I will know when I need to refresh them.

I'm trying this for a few days now. Probably I'm to stupid to get this right.
I play a mage. How do I configure a filter for stealable spells ?
I know there is the s filter. What do I configure for it ?
No matter what I do I get this:

SBF Invalid command specified in filter "s"
SBF Not adding filter "s" for frame xxxxxxx

jdaniel - I haven't had a chance to do the fix on the spellsteal filter yet, it's been very busy lately. What you would do is make a frame that is whitelist, and the filter is just "s" with nothing else.

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

NarusegawaNaru - I haven't planned that sort of embellishment for timers/names, but I will consder it.

Photekk, nostress - You could sort of do that with filtering. I'll write something up and post it here.

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?
