lolTip  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2
by: Lolzen [More]
Explanation
Once i experienced Lua for the first time, i've ever since dreamed about making my very own tooltip.
Someday i really did it, and i've learned much trough this addon. It has grown very much since the release back then.

What can lolTip do?
lolTip features following Stuff:
  • Unitnames colors in class/reactioncolor
  • Level displayed in difficultycolor
  • Own Guild Coloring
  • Show GuildRank, GuildRankName next to the Guild
  • Target on the topright if exists
  • RaidIcon
  • Anchor changeable to follow the mouse
  • Hides Playertitles in Tooltip
  • Nicer Style if PvP is activated on mouseoverunit
  • ItemQualitycolored tooltipborders
  • Healthbar inside the Tooltip
  • Modifiable HealthBar-values in different Styles
    -percentage (37%)
    -numeral (3489/5000)
    -shortened (42.3k)
    -diff (-29399)
    -They also can be mixed up like diff and shortened (-37.4k)
  • de/activateable modules
    -Talents
    -disable fading, and hide tooltip instant instead
    -Dont popup Actionbartooltips inFight
    -Buffdisplay under the Tooltip
  • Easy changeable colors
  • Support for ManyItemTooltips (Skinning)
  • Support for Class Colors (Custom Class Colors)

Modules Q&A
Q:So what are this modules, and why are they there anyway?
A:The modules are tiny additions to the Tooltip not everyone might wants to have activated. So they are deactivatable.
Q:I want module xy.
A:You can a) Request it, or b) make it you own and send it to me per PM, and i'll add it in the next Release. Personally i prefer b, because i want to focus on the main Addon, not the modules, but also want to give the users the chance to habe a customable, yet not bloated Addon.

Other
To modify the border and StatusBartexture, you'll have to replace the blp's. (Also tga's possible)

Configuration
The configuration will be done through lua only.
You may open tip.lua and at the very top you'll find the configuration
Also there is a little config in lolTip\modules\buffs.lua
There you can modify the maxumum auras displayed, the size of them, the x & y offsets and add filters (no worry, a small text from WoWWiki should describe it fairly easy)

Thanks to
Aezay, Cargor & Seerah
You! for Reporting bugs, and suggestions

Hope you enjoy lolTip as much as i do,
Lolzen

Over the config should stand "--Standart Coniguration" somewhere, thats the right one.
I'll remove my own config with the next release.
thanks, yes that's it, damm im stupid.

Sonwhew on WoWWiki i saw there was something like "If you use "ANCHOR_CURSOR" the offsets cannot be used" - but i didn't find it roght now (i knew i should have saved the link ~.~)

But one thing interests me: Why do you want an offset if the tooltip is on the Cursor? :O
Currently, mouseover kinda puts the tooltip right above the cursor, i.e. the cursor lies in the middle bottom of the tooltip box. I was planning to use it to hover over targets to check hp and consider healing em without having to select em cept it just covered their faces altogether, offsetting it to the right and below the cursor slightly would make it easy to see the characters you're hovering over.

I tried that earlier today, didn't have any results (although removing parenthesis around that region does cause errors so i guess it's going thru). Copying what you typed in verbatim also didn't produce errors (if u left the x's there instead of numbers). I was using numbers in the order of 200-1000.

No idea what's happening =\

I noticed it did display sometimes, when targeting myself or some npc's. Allthough the Target text did disappear after a split second. I'll run a few more tests and see if there's interfering, but i've tested almost every tooltip mod there is and haven't run into any problem.

Thats odd, it's working for me on both, Live and Beta Servers. Could you check if there is another Addon interfering by deactivating any other than lolTip?

Yeah, seems you can only do it by hooking into an onUpdate and repositioning the frame with SetPoint every move

You're doing fine... Don't worry about it.

Didn't do much on This thing lately >.<

Alkar: Nah, but there Should be a Addon out there that does this. Only Thing ist because of how the Healthbar Placing works, it will Mess up the ToolTip (got to find another solution there..)

I've been trying to anchor the tooltip to my cursor but then have the cursor appear in the topleft of the tooltip. So far any re-anchoring that way (with offsets) leads to nothing. Any light you could shed on this?

I realize this is a bit late answer, but it's to do with the talents module. I had the same thing with TipTac, and when I tried lolTip I wasn't really surprised to get the same problem (seeing how it's inspired by TipTac). So I couldn't use lolTip either but do I appreciate the border textures I got though :P But that's the clue, don't know if you can make much of it. It's been discussed here too:
