Kreiri's Buff Bars  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.06
by: Kreiri [More]
Customizable bars for tracking buffs and debuffs. Inspired by Satrina Buff Frames.

Features:
- create bar groups to monitor buffs or debuffs on selected unit
- filter buffs by name, duration and caster (you vs. everyone else)
- customize buff/debuff/font colors, font size, background alpha, size and positions of bar groups.

Type /kbb ui to toggle settings interface.


Filter format:
  • filter by caster:
    • my - only casted by you
    • !my - only casted by others
  • filter by name: n<operator><value>, where <value> is name or part of the name of the buff and <operator> is
    • = - for "equals"
    • ~= - for "includes"
      Filtering by name is case-insensitive.
  • filter by duration: t<operator><value>, where <value> is duration in seconds and <operator> is
    • > - for "greater than"
    • < - for "less than"
    • >= - for "equal or greater than"
    • <= - for "equal or less than"
    Use t==nil and t!=nil to filter buffs with infinite duration

You can make combinations of filters using & (logical and) operator.

Examples:
n~=motif - matches all buffs with "motif" in name
my&n~=motif - matches all buffs with "motif" in name, which were casted by you.

Watching type:
buff to watch buffs,
debuff to watch debuffs.

Filtering type:
whitelist means that only buffs which match at least one of the filters will be displayed;
blacklist means that all buffs will be displayed, except those which match at least one filter.

--------------------------
On performance:
KBB has two throttle values, one for how often bars are redrawn and timers updated, and other for how often KBB asks server for exact remaining time of tracked buffs. If you have performance issues, try playing with KBB.throttle (how often bars are updated) and KBB.callsThrottle (how often KBB asks server for buff info) values in KBB_Defaults.lua file. If you had performance issues, and changing these values helped, please tell me what values you used.


--------------------------
On old slash commands:
they are still there! The list of slash commands is here.
--------------------------

Bug reports and suggestions are welcome. Please be sure to include in your bug report as much details as possible, including error message text, group settings (unit, filtering type, filters, watching type) and what you were doing when the bug occurred.

Post your bug reports here and suggestions here.

does it still work properly?

I frequently encounter errors when applying certain debuffs:

Error: Incorrect function usage.
Parameters: nil
Parameter types: nil
Function documentation:
Converts unit IDs to unit specifiers and vice-versa.
unit = Inspect.Unit.Lookup(unit) -- unit <- unit
units = Inspect.Unit.Lookup(units) -- table <- table
Parameters:
unit: A single unit ID or unit specifier.
units: A table containing unit IDs and unit specifiers.
Return values:
unit: A unit ID or unit specifier, whichever is the opposite of the parameter given. May be nil.
units: A table of unit IDs and unit specifiers. The key is the input, the value is the result. Invalid inputs will not result in output entries.
In KreiriBuffBars / KreiriBuffBars.Frame:MouseIn
stack traceback:
[C]: in function 'Lookup'
KreiriBuffBars/KBB_Bar.lua:132: in function 'showTooltip'
KreiriBuffBars/KBB_Bar.lua:36: in function 'OnMouseIn'
KreiriBuffBars/KBB_Bar.lua:94: in function <KreiriBuffBars/KBB_Bar.lua:94>


P.S.: this addon is (otherwise :P) great! nothing out there like this one...!

Uh, they've done this since launch. Have you seen Asha Catari? They even have someone who dresses like her and goes to all the conventions. Scantily clad women is in no way a new marketing tactic for Rift (or any other MMO - or any video game really). I think all the iconic female characters in Rift are all scantily clad in-game. Asha Catari, Shyla Starhearth, Alsbeth and probably others I'm forgetting at the moment. To get upset over a scantily clad computer rendering of a woman on a website but not at the ones in-game doesn't make much sense.

Some kind of feeling of obligation made me finish rewrite of KBB's UI. Now that new version is working without bugs - daily error reports don't have any errors for v.2.06 - this feeling is gone.

I will no longer develop Kreiri's Buff Bars. Just in case anyone is thinking about forking KBB, let me quote KBB's license:

Is it possible to have debuffs/buffs that have completely expired remain visible as alerts? It seems like it might be, but I haven't figured out a way to do it. Maybe it isn't. For example, if I have a DoT that falls off completely, I would like to have its bar remain on my screen at 0.00 seconds or something rather than completely disappear as a reminder that I need to recast it. If this addon could do that it would be pretty much perfect for me.

I'm sorry for my late answer - was at work and I didn't remember my password. ^_^;
Hope you had a lunch break afterall.

And I get this error message as soon as I made a klick under "general" in "Player" for example.
Does this help? Sorry, I'm really bad at this stuff... @_@

Can't be helped. My tooltips have to be in the same context as buff bars to prevent them appearing below bars. I tried putting them in separate contexts with different strata, but I only found that setting context's strata to anything crashes the client on /reloadui :/
