Perl Classic Unit Frames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 8.18
by: Global [More]

If you like this mod, please vote for it!

What is Perl Classic?
Perl Classic Unit Frames are a complete rewrite of the original mods by Perl. They replace the default Player, Pet, Target, Target of Target, Party, and Party Pet frames and add dedicated frames for many other units (Focus, Focus Target, Party Target, Target of Target of Target). It has been a high priority to maintain the look and feel or the original Perl mods while expanding functionality. The mod has been recoded for performance and is built around the Blizzard UI usage of events.

Q&A
-----

Q: I'm seeing double party buffs for some reason, what gives?
A: 99% of the time this is caused by CT_PartyBuffs. Simply remove the mod and you will return to having one set of party buffs.

Q: I am having massive dead spots for clicking on some of the unit frames, what's wrong?
A: This can be caused by a number of mods, but the most common seems to be CT_MovableParty. Please remove this mod as Perl can be moved without the use of this mod.

Q: The default party frames are showing up with red lightning bolts. What's going on?
A: As of version 1.503 of CT_RaidAssist this should no longer be caused by CTRA. The settings for this are now located in the WoW settings under Interface Options -> Basic -> Raid -> Hide Party Interface.

Q: Do you support ArcaneBar?
A: Yes, it is included in your download of Perl Classic.

Q: Will you be adding any features to Perl_PlayerBuff?
A: No, my coding for this mod goes as far as making sure it 'works.' If anyone would like to expand upon it, feel free to do so.

Q: Where are the raid frames?
A: As of 2.0 I no longer code raid frames for Perl Classic. Luckily, X-Perl's raid frames work great alongside Perl Classic. X-Perl's raid frames (and the unit frames themselves) can be found here: http://www.curse.com/downloads/details/3416/

Q: The scaling is all messed up! What do i do?
A: I recommend setting the scale to that of the UI if you are having issues. Open the options menu via "/perl" or the Black Pearl icon on the minimap and set the scale accordingly under the "All" tab.

Q: I am having an issue not listed in this FAQ, what can I do?
A: First, update *every* mod. I do not support ancient outdated and unmaintained mods. If you have double checked that everything is up to date, post on any of the Perl Classic mod pages and I'll be glad to help you narrow down the issue or give suggestions to help find a solution.

Q: Can you add this feature?
A: I'm sure it's possible, but the primary purpose of this mod is to 'modernize' the original Perl mod so that it doesn't slow your game down.

When I save the global setting its telling me in the chat "Global Settings Saved"

When I load the global settings, it does nothing, and it says nothing in the chat.

And loading from another profile, does nothing as well, no respond from the add-on in the chat.

What is wrong here?
If you are still having the issue, would it be possible for you to send me a copy of all of the Perl lua files in the following directory? I can't seem to reproduce the issue.

C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\_classic_\WTF\Account\[AccountName]\SavedVariables\

This addon doesn't seem to work with Real Mob Health

Is there a way to make it compatible with Real Mob Health, or is there an alternative addon that works with Perl Classic?

barSpark field Error

Hi!

I'm getting the following error. Strangely only when I uncheck the "Hide the Blizzard Casting Bar" and cast a spell. When the option is checked, no error, but the Blizzard Casting Bar is not hidden.

Lua Code:
  1. Message: Interface\AddOns\Perl_ArcaneBar\Perl_ArcaneBar.lua:219: attempt to index field 'barSpark' (a nil value)

Believe it or not, Classic didn't have that. PCUF 8.10 has this feature sort of included by way of a library that does some tricks to get get the data. I haven't posted it on this site just yet but it is on the "other" site for addons. I'll try to get it posted here later today.

Added some code in to hopefully fix this. Please let me know if it still happens in 8.03.

This is currently my favorite interface frame mod. I have just one request:

Could we possibly have the ability to set anchor points (top, bottom, etc.) separately for buffs and debuffs, and have a slider for vertical offset for each? I would like to have debuffs line up along the bottom of the target frame and buffs along the top. Currently that isn't possible, and even with them inverted so both are on the top, there is a rather big gap between the frame and the buff bar.

Thanks again for the excellent mod!

Thanks for the report. I've seen the bug in action. Hopefully I'll have it fixed in the next release.

Perl has been blocked from this action that is only availible to the blizzard ui. Or someting like that. I'm sure you have seen it. Give you the ignore or disable buttons.
Unfortunately, I'm unable to reproduce this issue. Does it still happen with only Perl enabled?

I still have some work to do on making frames hide correctly in pet battles. When I just tested it, the player frame didnt disappear at all and I can still make the target frame reappear by hitting F1.
