Simple Mouseover Target
Version: 1.7
by: Brodrick [More]
[I have quit wow. It is unlikely I will update this, or any other of my addons.
If you wish to take them over, feel free.


When you mouse over a character or creature in the game that is currently targeting something, it shows a second, small tooltip attached to the main tooltip with their target's name, level, and other info.

/simplemousetarget
toggle - toggle show / hide
on - show
off - hide
red - toggle turning the background of the second tooltip red if the target is the player
green - toggle making the second tooltip green if you are targeting the same the target
pos # (1-12) - relocate the second tooltip around the gametooltip.

Thanks, it'll be a little awkward to play with the scaling this way but I can't complain too much since I'm finally getting my ToT tooltip window back.

I won't be adding this feature myself. I really only intend this addon to work with the default UI, and if it happens to work with other tooltip addons, great.

If you want to add scaling, you can add a single line to the SimpleMouseoverTarget.lua file to change it.

After the line:
function SMouseTarget_OnLoad(self)

add:
self:SetScale(0.5)

Change the value to whatever you want, save the file and reload your UI.

Hey, I just want to thank you for making this add-on. Ever since the AFTTE add-on stopped getting updated, I've lamented the lack of tooltip add-ons that have a separate window with a mouseover ToT. The utility of this information for tanking (especially in combination with a mouseover taunt macro) cannot be overstated.

I found this works pretty well in conjunction with tiptac as well. So you can get all the useful info and customizability found in other tooltip addons (and especially the anchoring to your mouse and, special to tiptac, the ability to offset the tooltip from your mouse so it doesn't block what you're mousing over) with the sometimes crucial information of what an untargeted mob's ToT is.

The only thing I guess I could request vis-a-vis the new ToT window is some way to scale the size (I'd want to be able to change the size to be just a tad smaller).

Again, thanks so much for the great work!!!
