Not sure if I'm missing a setting or something, but I haven't been able to find it; I'm having both the addon and the blizzard frame showing at the same time?

When I unlock it shows normally (0/0 text) and I can position correctly, the Test Mode also seems to work, because keep changing the bar constantly. But when I lock the position it doesn't show anymore, with full energy or not.
Many addons may conflict with SimplePowerBar. Ensure you have all addons that use the power bar or move it disabled for use.

Sounds like you may have another addon that uses the AlternatePowerBar. This could be from a boss mod of yours or perhaps another power bar addon.

Could you show me a list of your addons? Perhaps I could pinpoint it a bit for you.

I hope this is clearer, i am useless at explaining things :-/
After watching a video of the encounter I can't see how often it ticks, or what would trigger an increase.

Normally the power events would trigger the proper update but since I'm assuming the power isn't the same throughout the encounter ( different quadrants etc ) there may be a different event I need to be watching for.

For now on the encounter, perhaps its best to use the '/spb blizz' command to toggle to the blizzard bar until I can get a chance to encounter the fight.

Player power is a different resource and is handled quite differently.

Short answer no, long answer, the framework of the addon is a good base for a new system however tracking all the different player power types would be a lot of work to deal with.

I have the same issue as well... It is hard to disable addons as it happens in a raid usually...
I know some action bar mods such as dominos have an 'encounter' module or additional handler for the PowerBarAlt frame.

Just gotta go through your addons and find out which it is.

A lot of the time when fonts aren't sticking it's due to an addon that holds a font simply not being available.
Thanks for following up!
