CowTip 3.0  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v1.3.1
by: ckknight [More]
**NOTE: If you are upgrading for the first time since 2.4, CowTip now uses the new LibDogTag-3.0 library. As such, many of your DogTags will need to be rewritten. Please see the in-game DogTag help or the DogTag wiki page for more info.

Tooltip of awesomeness. Moo. It'll graze your pasture.

Hey all, ckknight here, I decided to make a tooltip addon. Therefore I have, and called it CowTip (the name is funny, laugh.)

CowTip is tag-based, specifically based on DogTag-2.0, which is the same tag system that PitBull uses.

One major thing that separates it from some other mods is that it doesn't manipulate data that is already on the tooltip, it adds much more to it, but all in a way that the user can customize to the nth degree.

The goal of CowTip is to be simple, customizeable, and powerful, all at once. (Another bonus to developers is that the code is actually humanly-readable.)

Features:
  • Fully customizable colors, background textures, borders, and fonts
  • Uses the DogTag system so you can create the tooltip of your dreams
  • Displays raid target icons
  • Heath and Power bars with customizable sizes and bar textures
  • Ability to place anywhere on your screen
  • Ability to choose when to hide/show your tooltip

Just search for 'dogtag' and there you go.

Hasn't been updated for a long time, so I guess it's time to move on. I can't even remember for how long I've been using this beauty

Anyone got an alternative with the same amount of customization (borders, background, font, ...)?

Same error

Is an update being worked on?

I get the same LibRock-error as the previous post, and same errors in general, and all since the 3.3 update. This is a great addon, so please update or atleast give us some info of what's happening.

Errors

I have been using Cowtip for a long time and suddenly I am getting 10 errors when I log on, most are concerning Librock. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times and even disabled and re enabled. Can anyone help with fixing these problems? I can't even access the config screen or options. It's like cowtip isn't even running.

Yes, it's great, I replaced tinytip since Thrae refused to remove the fadeout effect which was stucking the tooltip on the screen for ages.

I managed to make it look identical but without the Tinytip weakness.


The "targeting" word disappers whenever there is no target. I wrote the line 5 by myself.

Code:
[(if IsPlayer then Color("00aaff") end) (if IsEnemy then HostileColor end) NameRealm]
[(if Guild then Color("00aaff") Guild end)]
[Classification] [Level:DifficultyColor] [(if IsPlayer then Color("dfdfaf") Race else Creature end)] [if IsPlayer or [IsEnemy and not IsPet and [not Creature]] then Class:ClassColor end]
[Status]
[(if IsUnit(Target, Target) then 'Targeting: ':Color("ffcf0f") end) (if Target:IsPlayer or (Target:IsEnemy and not Target:IsPet) then ClassColor(unit=Target) end) (if IsUnit('player', Target) then '"YOU"' else Target:NameRealm end)]
[if IsUnit('pet') then HappyText end]
[Zone]
I must say that the TipTac Talents mod works better so I use it instead of the line [talents].

I like very much CowTip, so I played with the LUA files and I finally found out how to show that damn health bar for walls and doors.

tc3, I salute you sir! Thanks for getting that to work. I was about to give up on this mod!

How do I modify the line text for Guild (currently using default) so that it says "None" if the target has no guild?

Edit: Default is as follows

[(if Guild and Guild = 'player':Guild then Green end) Guild:Angle]

Great Addon, thanks!

Is there any possibility to have the PercentHP shown directly on the healthbar (preferably in the middle)?

Also, how can I show the HP of things, e.g. the walls in PvP? The tooltip doesn't show anything now, but I know it somehow must be possible (tiptop did it )

(e) Nvm, I got some time to sift through the comments, and there it is The door-thingy, that is.

To the creator;

I've compiled all my current problems that I've found with the current version of Cow Tip in the image below.



Thanks, and keep up the great work!

Wall & Door Health Fix!

I like very much CowTip, so I played with the LUA files and I finally found out how to show that damn health bar for walls and doors.

NOTE: Do this mod ONLY if you don't see objects health bar!

Here what you have to do:
  • Open the HealthBar.lua file in the corrisponding dir
  • Search for this function (about line 103):
    Code:
    function CowTip_HealthBar:OnEnable(first)
  • Inside that function, replace:

    Code:
    _G.GameTooltipStatusBar:Hide() 
    self:AddScriptHook(GameTooltipStatusBar, "OnShow", function(this) this:Hide() end)
    With

    Code:
    _G.GameTooltipStatusBar:Show()
  • Save the file and you've done

This trick works for me on every wall and door i found (WG, Ulduar & IoC).

Hope this help you all and sorry for my english :P
