Atramedes - Sound Bar

During this fight the sound bar covers my UI on the very bottom. I tried using NUI Movers but it would not let me. It also does this for other fights where there is a bar for the fight. Is there a way to move this at all?

Hmm, must be yet another bar they are sneaking into the game.

If it is at all possible, IE if the bar exists before the fight starts, see if you can get a screenshot with the name of the bar on the screen.

To do that type /framestack and move the mouse of the bar and take the screenshot and then type /framestack to remove the frame information screen.

This will enable Scott to add the frame to nUI's frame management system.

Hmm, I thought Scott had already added that to the /nui movers system already.

Although looking at both nUI5 and nUI6 folders I can't see it mentioned at all.

Time to hunt down my mini movers file ..


Edit:

I haven't fully tested this yet since renaming the folder/project but code wise it should still be working as I envisioned.

I have set up PlayerPowerBarAlt and the TutorialAlertFrame ( or however it was spelt ) by default. The addon however lets you create movers on the fly if nUI isn't already creating them.

It works in a similar way to MoveAnything except it uses nUI's mover system to do all the work so that using /nui movers will allow you to move the frame once it has been added to the system.

It is not intended to be a permanent project, at least at the moment anyway, but it will allow people that are hitting these problems now to move that frame outta the way so they can continue playing.

The PlayerPowerBarAlt is the same bar used in the twilight highlands quest that shows how much stomach acid you are being affected by.

Hopefully the zip file attached doesn't still cause problems like before but below is the full code in the lua file.

what about a plug in or add on to make it where the guild achievment announcements are spawned......

when it happens they usually spawn right on top of the macro bars as well
