Buff Overlay

Version: 3.2
by: clicket [More]

Buff Overlay

This extremely lightweight addon was created for people to quickly and easily see defensive cooldowns active on other players so they can adjust their gameplay accordingly. It does so by placing the cooldown's icon on the unit's raid frame while the buff is active.

By default, all immunity and damage reduction abilities have been added.


Settings you can change in BuffOverlay.lua include:

  • Icon Count
  • Icon Scale
  • Icon Alpha
  • Icon Position
  • Grow Direction
  • Show Cooldown Text
  • Cooldown Text Scale


Notes:
- Only Blizzard frames are currently supported.
- No in-game options. See BuffOverlay.lua for settings.
- Does not taint frames.

I've changed my mind and added the option to increase the amount of icons you want to display with v3.0. Enjoy.

If anything, I'd add multiple anchors to different parts of the frame that use different spelllists. Again, that seems unlikely unless I get overwhelming requests for it.

The latest release does have a priority system though, so buffs that you want to show more often can be put higher on the spell list.
I know your intentions. thank you~

It's just a bright flat texture.

You can find the files on my github.

https://github.com/clicketz/files

Just put the "RaidFrame" folder in your wow's interface folder.

Getting this error. It happens when you target a raidframe and this raidframe has a buff from buff overlay up. When you click the overlay icon directly.

maybe useful additional info:
happened in a battleground (only seen it there yet)
player infight

Code:
2x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn 'BuffOverlay' tried to call the protected function 'TargetUnit()'.
!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:519: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:519>
[C]: in function `TargetUnit'
FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua:487: in function `handler'
FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua:623: in function `SecureActionButton_OnClick'
FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua:663: in function <FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua:655>
[C]: in function `Click'
FrameXML\UIParent.lua:3403: in function <FrameXML\UIParent.lua:3402>

Locals:
InCombatSkipped
non-error related:
would be cool if you can add survival of the fittest ability from hunters

Name: Survival of the Fittest
Spell Id for Markmanship: 281195
Spell Id for Beastmaster and Survival: 264735
