Discord Art  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 9.2.1
by: Fizzlemizz [More]

Lozareth's configurable, scriptable Discord Art.

Updates.
9.2.1

  • New: Added WoWI tag to toc for 3rd party addon downloaders (downloader needs to recognise version specific .toc files to work on Classic/TBC).

See the Change Log (tab above) for a list of all changes.

Modify your World of Warcraft environment to suit your style. Add textures that are clickable, will react to events ie. showing when you aquire a target and hiding again when not and lots lots more.

NOTE: If you change the file names of, copy, move, add texture files etc. and let's not forget typos while in-game, you will have to completely exit WOW and re-start before the "new" textures will register (going back to the character select or account login screens is not good enough).

A bright green blob where your amazing artwork is supposed to appear is a good indicator your texture hasn't registered when the game loaded (did I mention typos ).

SCRIPTS
Because the ubiquitous "this" is no longer a valid construct in WOW Lua, the scripting engine has been changed to include/parse "self" as a replacement to "this". "param" is still the universal parameter 1 name passed to scripts so for OnEvent self= the old "this" and param = the "event" parameter. For OnUpdate, self= the old "this" and param = the "elapsed" parameter. For OnClick self = the old "this" and param = the "button" paramter etc...

FUNCTIONS
Version 6.1 added the ability to create custom functions that are "compiled" to the private DART table, they are NOT global. These functions can be called from any texture script or any of your other custom functions. See the Function Options section of the ReadMe.htm for more information.

***USING OLDER DART
If you load a DART profile imported from pre 5.0 version of Discord Art you may (most likely will) get errors due to scripting that is no longer valid. The WOW API has changed a lot so these will need some careful attention.

***IF YOU DO GET ERRORS, please post the full error message and a discription of what you were doing at the time.

For information on how to customise DART, the Readme.html in your "[WOW]\Interface\Addons\DiscordArt" folder is the place to go. It's old school like DART but it will get updated as required.

Sharing your DART configuration: Dreadlorde's Discord Custom Layout Extractors (The DART_Custom sub-folder) still works with Discord Art. You will need to enable "Out of date Addons" under the Addons button of the character selection screen. DART MUST be installed as well otherwise errors will be generated ie. only install the extracor(s) for the Discord addons you have installed. See the ReadMe file in each extractors folder for information on how to use DCLE.

Dates are in dd/mm/yyyy format.

Thanks again for such a quick reply Fizzle. I ended up deleting my conditions and setting the Parent to the target (it was called LUFUnittarget) and it fixed the issue . I'll answer the questions regardless:
  1. No, I'm using Luna Unit Frames
  2. I used DART in Classic, but wasn't sure if I had this issue then because I wouldn't have clicked anywhere near this area. I just revamped my UI and changed the positioning of my target frame for TBC yesterday, placing it near an area of the screen I commonly click, which is how I came across the problem. I don't use DART in retail.
  3. I don't fully understand this one
  4. I know this only happens when I'm clicking within the parameters of the DART frame itself. If I click the target frame it behaves normally as if I were to click the default Blizzard UI target frame

Happy to test things further if you need.

If I have someone targeted (thus bringing up the DART image), Disable Mouse doesn't work, but if I then open up /dart and uncheck then re-check Disable Mouse while the image is up, it's fixes it! Until I drop target and re-target something again

Let me know if you need any further details / images. Thanks!

Hi KTMFinX,
Thank you for using Discord Art and thank you for the report.
A couple of questions to help identify what is going on:
  1. Are you using the default Blizzard Unit Frames?
  2. Does this just happen on Retail, TBC, Classic, all versions or only two of them (if you are using DART on more than one game version)?
  3. What is DART doing when you click the target that is different without the conditions?
  4. Are you clicking target frame or the DART frame itself?
I'll take a look but one trick that might work instead of using conditions is to set the TargetFrame as the Parent of your DART frame. This will cause it to show and hide when the TargetFrame is shown/hidden without conditions.

Thanks again.

Glad it's working again. Strange things happening everywhere with the Shadowlands migration.

Thank you sonceri for using Discord Art.
Enjoy!

Re: SetBackdrop error if >1 image used

Hi sonceri,

Error 2 is probably occurring because of error 1. Error 1 should be occurring only if somehow DART didn't update properly (I just downloaded the version on WoWI and it seems fine)

If you go to the DiscordArt folder in your addons and open the file DART_Main.lua

Go to line 337. It should read:
Code:
CreateFrame("Button", "DART_Texture_"..ti, UIParent, "BackdropTemplate");
If not then download and reinstall DART. If it does read as above (, "BackdropTemplate" being the important part) can you tell me what you have set for the backdrop?

Thank you for the report.

Hi saenokda,
Thanks for trying Discord Art.

DART way older the KG so it does some things slightly differently because the API wasn't as flexible in some areas "back in the day".

If you open the Misc. entries (Misc. Options button bottom/left) you can increase the number of panels (Textures) the addon has to work with.

Re: Re: Imported Image Transparency

Not sure what was wrong with the alpha channels of my .TGA's but the converter worked! Thanks again for such a timely reply.

You can convert to/from .png/.blp using Blpng Conveter if you want to try using .png as the base but it shouldn't make any difference if the alpha channel is set.

Is there an image format or DART setting I can try so that my images work more like PNG's as shown above?

Thank you

Hey again Fizzle,

I found an old screenshot of when I used DART way back in the original TBC days, please see below:

I noticed back then, when I imported an image it still kept the transparency data as if they were PNG's. But nowadays when I import images as TGA's (as required) they seem to lose all transparency data to them - you can see the examples in my black paint splash images a few posts below.

Is there an image format or DART setting I can try so that my images work more like PNG's as shown above?

Thank you

Adding a photo to see if this looks familiar to anyone

The included readme.txt (setup information) should help.

I think this is/was just one varient on a theme.
