QuickHealth

Version: 1.0.0_r3
by: Furyrage-Kargath [More]

QuickHealth uses the events in the combat log to update health bars more quickly than the default Blizzard UI. On average each change in health appears about 0.7s sooner with QuickHealth.

Default Unit Frames
The following frames are currently supported with QuickHealth:

  • Player Frame
  • Target Frame
  • Target of Target
  • Focus
  • Target of Focus
  • Boss Frames
    *The party/raid frames are not working yet because they are not formatted the same way. Because they can be rearranged and sorted differently, they do not have to represent only one unit ID.

Other Unit Frames
All other unit frames should work with QuickHealth assuming a few things are true...
  1. The unit ID is saved as a variable on the health bar (e.g. PlayerFrameHealthBar.unit="player")
  2. The text (if there is any) updates when the status bar changes values (not the other way around)
  3. The function InitializeQuickHealth(self) is run for the health bar (e.g "InitializeQuickHealth(PlayerFrameHealthBar)" )

r3 - Fixed a small error where mana changes were assumed to be health. Fixed the TOC version number so the addon no longer claims to be out of date.
r2 - Cleaned up the code a bit. Support for more frames.

Could we have a 4.2 update ? also you might want to use the libQuickHealth which is ready for 4.2. It's included for example here:

Edit: please tell how exactly did you measure the difference in update time?
To find the difference in time I just added a few lines in my code where it would save the time when the combat log event occurred and then the time when the health bar updated and it would take the difference. I then had it average the numbers and after about 100 changes in health it was averaging right around 0.7 seconds. To make sure it was the correct two times I had it check to see if the value that the health bar was updating to was the same as the value it had already been changed to by the combat log event. Hopefully this makes sense. It was easier for me to set up than to describe =P
