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

Health Bar Font

Hey

Is there any way to change the font in the health bar from Friz Quadrata TT to something else, like Arial Narrow?

I've been trying around but I can't seem to find a way to do it.

---------------------------

EDIT:

Found it out.
For anyone who wants to change theirs or just wants to know how:

In line 490, change FRIZQT__.TTF into ARIALN.TTF.

Could you add support for a separate file containing user set settings that override the default settings, kinda like EventHorizon has. That way we wouldn't have to re-edit the main lua file at every update.

after editing the core a bit i managed to erase the "Talents:" and "Target:"
and made it like this [img=http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/1935/40737718.th.jpg]

the only thing i want to change to make it just perfect is that i want the targets target be shown next to the name
example Savaoth [YOU] all in the same first line

what must i edit to make this?

thanx for the great addon

As you can see, the ''CTRA/ORA'' info is hidden behind the health bar.

Just retried all versions and they seem to all be working now which is weird. I do have another problem with the 1.5 and 1.5.1 versions that is kinda stopping me from using them and that is I am getting overlay on the tooltip boxes with DockingStation when there is more than 1 tooltip box.

I've included a couple of images so you can see the problem...I'm getting it on all the DockingStation tooltips that have more than 1 box.


This is loltip 1.4.2 which still works perfect and shows how it should be...

And this is the buggered up one from loltip 1.5 and 1.51...

Thanks for your help.
