Thanks for checking. You may also notice the size of the nameplate might change depending on the size of the mob so that may affect your calculations too. The blizzard nameplate changes size for small and regular size mobs in the Valley of the Four Winds for example.

Thanks Thortok2000 and Acapela. After reading your analysis, it is what I was seeing on my end too and you pinpointed it most accurately. Cheers.

Re: Re: Gray nameplates / Tapped mobs
Posted By: jtbalogh
When testing, I could not find the properties for tapped or dead; aloftData.isTapped, aloftData.isTappedPlayer, aloftData.isDead, aloftData.isCorpse? I could not find aloft tags to build an advanced color string? Eventually I was trying to change aloft to help check if tapped with the conditions below. E.g. yeah, Aloft doesn't curre...

Gray nameplates / Tapped mobs
Posted By: jtbalogh
Was wondering for a long time now if I ever saw a gray nameplate in the game with aloft. Unexpectedly the answer is no. Is there something special about setting up aloft to show gray nameplates when a mob is tapped by another player? In the healthbar module, I currently do not see an option in the color section for "Hostile Tapped" (...

Thanks for the neat addon. Just reporting a conflict with the addon MoveAnything because they both use the declaration of "MAOptions". MinimalArcheology uses MAOptions as a global variable. MoveAnything uses MAOptions as a global xml frame object. MinimalArcheology works okay with this conflict because variables always exist. Unfortu...

Show nameplates that have a raid icon and not hide
Posted By: jtbalogh
Feature request: Always show nameplates that have a raid icon in case a raid leader is marking any target. This was on the old wishlist. The code below has been helping me which I would like to share in case it helps you see this feature too. I assume you may like to eventually make it similar to your option which always shows th...

Originally posted by Shot I'm actually seeing this issue on mobs in instances (among others) where they definitely should be visible. In nearly every group of trash there will usually be at least one mob which doesn't have a visible name until i disable/reenable nameplates by pressing V twice. I have seen that a mob that had a CC...

You are still testing so not to worry; I noticed your debug to chatframe7 is showing in aloft.lua, ToggleAllNameplates(). Maybe consider, if a debug condition then chatframe7; end. : )

Was wondering if the raid icon stays visible and centered when the nameplate is hidden by the visibility or autoshow settings. Thanks.

Fun feature to think about: "Guild Only, Outside Dungeon" Just to see the nameplate of a guild member passing nearby in the world, not dungeon. With visibility-friendlyplayers set to new option "GUILDCONDITION", some code below can show them running around solo or as a group in world pvp or battleground pvp. Not needed in 5-man or...

I see class color options in Health bar, colors, class colors. I turn it off, and colors go back to friendly and hostile shown in the window.

Posted By: jtbalogh
Regarding the visibility module, everything works fine. I was wondering about the mechanics, because aloft shows nameplates once a target is in range, then hides it quickly due to the visiblity settings. For example, moving around town or somewhere, the nameplates can pop in and out a lot. Is there a way to reverse the code, so the v...

Posted By: jtbalogh
as far as i have ever been able to tell, unlike "bar-style nameplates", these "text nameplates" (which appear when a unit is out of nameplate range, and/or when nameplates are disabled) are not graphical objects that an addon can access. they seem to be artifacts purely of the WoW Client, managed entirely down inside the WoW Client....

Feature request: visibility affects names and bars nearby and works great. I was wondering if another visibility module for the names (not nameplates) much farther away in the game field. They are not nameplates but the colored text is visible like a small nameplate faraway, not have to be legible. Just needs some options cause blizz...

Thanks for the info about nameplate glow. Checked the settings and noticed the style was empty so I set it to an item like partial soft outline and it works again. Sorry for the trouble, maybe an update reset the variable. Keep up the good work.

Nameplate glow broken?
Posted By: jtbalogh
The nameplate glow does not seem to work like it did a few patches ago. Tried to invert, tried to invert while tanking, but the glow does not change with aggro anymore. Something you noticed too?

1. This is in regards to the alpha setting of the current target healthbar versus the other nearby healthbars. After I set the alpha setting for the targeted healthbar, I would like to find the location in code to adjust the other nearby healthbars separately. Currently, the addon uses the one alpha option for all healthbars, and au...
