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

Just a small bug, but an annoying one for me - on a character that's 'gray' to me (like a level 3), the guild tag shows up no problem. However, if they're same level or higher, the guild tag does not show up at all. Happens if no addons are running as well.

Any clue what can be causing this?

seems that everything is working without errors. i've been trying without addons on my 80 druid and with all addons enabled on 62 priest, for about an hour

thanks for the quick fix

Anyway, i changed the code from the GameTooltipStatusBar a bit and hope this will eliminate all this, at least u don't get an error at the login anymore. Also the Addon now checks if a unit and the text for the healthbar is available before doing something with these, so the "..text..thingy..(nil error)" should not popup anymore.
You will not see the UnitHealth right on your first target after login, but well, at least (i hope) this is a solutuon for now. [/b]

Greetings,

So far I really like Loltip. However, I've been meaning to switch to percentage-based HP values. One of the old loltip pictures shows percentages, yet I can't seem to find the config nor the code needed to get this to work.

Thanks in advance.

That was before patch 3.0.2, as since then WoW provides an exact HealthValue instead of Percentage value.
So, lolTip itself never had an option like that, sorry.

Graphical bug

I rly like the addon. It's nice and simple, and it looks great.
I've got one strange bug though, no LUA errors are generated.
The unit HP will overlap whatever the last line of text is on the tooltip. In this case it's the talent line.
Here is a screen shot:

Odd thing with the healthbar, i didn't got it when i played.
Could you specify when this exactly happens?

Any other (tooltip modifiing) AddOns enabled?

@crian: This is not intended, it is a bug. I'm looking for a solution right now.

I'll occasionally get it, but I know it's probably caused by Overachiever, where the HP bar will cover up if I need to kill or /love a particular creature. Doesn't seem to happen on fishing nodes, though.

I do have a lot of other addons enabled. I haven't modified the LUA at all.
The bug doesn't appear to happen on most NPCs. If you mouse over a player or a player's pet it overlaps like in the screen shot below. However, If the player targets something the tool tip will correct itself.

Here's a list of my addons: http://home.comcast.net/~jlcover1/Pv...rix-export.txt

Today i've really long testet lolTip, but didn't get the Bug with the overlapping HealthBar, not in PvP, not at leveling nor at the town beeing lazy.

Ive testet it with lolTip beeing the only activated Addon, so i'm really not sure what triggers the bug, but i might have a trace what is the cause of when it happens, but couldn't test because of the lack of reproductioness :S (yeah reproductioness is acool word.)

Anway, i think the Update has some really cool changes, and optimizes the tooltip in various ways, espacially in viewing the level-line (because on some bosses this was messed up), and i a good way to go out of the Beta-phase, thanks everyone for Reporting the bugs as quickly as they appeared

Also a result of testing today: No Error popping up.

Hope you have fun with the "full version" of 2.0 =)

it is really strange with the overlapping hp bar. i looked into the lua but i cant find anything that may cause this bug.
maybe you should ask another addon author who has more knowledge about tooltips.

I seem to only get the over lapping PVP and healthbar bug whenever Stubby is enabled.
