    Default [Addon] LifeBinder

    Last Updated: Wednesday, April 09, 2012 @ 2:05PM EST

    Thread is under construction.

    Please bear with us while we construct this thread. In the mean time please feel free to ask anything about the addon.

    I will be back tomorrow to fix the thread. We're exhausted from working day and night trying to release this addon before Infernal Dawn for the past 3 weeks.


    LifeBinder is an addon aimed to replace the default Rift party and raid frames with something that is more configurable. While it is designed for healers, other classes and roles can find LifeBinder useful. The addon makes it easier to monitor incoming damage, damage over time, healing, healing over time, buffs and debuffs. So that you can accurately and efficiently heal no matter how much is going on in raid. While making it easier to react to raid conditions LifeBinder also allows you to easily respond with click-to-cast spellcasting.

    Default 2. Features

    WORK IN PROGRESS.

    2.1 Proof of Concept
    LifeBinder is an addon aimed to replace the default Rift party and raid frames with something that is more configurable. While it is designed for healers, other classes and roles can find LifeBinder useful. The addon makes it easier to monitor incoming damage, damage over time, healing, healing over time, buffs and debuffs. So that you can accurately and efficiently heal no matter how much is going on in raid. While making it easier to react to raid conditions LifeBinder also allows you to easily respond with click-to-cast spellcasting.

    2.2 Core Features
    * Ability to track raid debuff, dispellable debuffs, HoTs and much more.
    * Ability to use Click-to-cast spells.
    * Aggro indication for all members of the group.
    * Buff and Debuff filtering.
    * Castbar on cast targets (know who you are healing).
    * Code efficiency, most of the elements are only active when needed otherwise they are removed from CPU cycles. Everything is event handled and never cycled to create digital readings.
    * Customizable appearance to suit your needs. Almost every visual aspect can be changed. (coming soon)
    * Indication of distance or line of sight.
    * Profiling of layout per individual specs (mousebinds, buff list, and debuff list are saved per spec).
    * Mouseover targeting (LB knows when you hover over a target).
    * Target indication (know what you target).

    Just a note:

    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Appendices

    A. Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Will LifeBinder support other languages?
    A: Yes. We are working on the addon as hard as we can and have categoriezed this as a low priority task. This does not mean we won't get to it, we work on queues and will get to it asap.

    Q: Will LifeBinder allow users to change how it looks?
    A: Yes, that is our goal by version 1.0.2.1. We will have a skin editor in place that allows you to edit textures, colors, font, font size, size of frames and much more.

    Q: Is there support for Vertical Group Columns?
    A: Yes, Type in "/lifebinder config", then goto "Skins" and choose "oldstyle".

    Q: How do I resize frames in v1.0.1.1?
    A: You can't change them via a config menu but you can type in this code into chat to change them. Note that default width is 110px with a height of 43px.

    "Standard" Skin (horizontal groups):
    Code:
    /script lbStylesOptions.standard.frameWidth = XXXX
    /script lbStylesOptions.standard.frameHeight = XXXX
    /reloadui
    "Oldstyle" Skin (vertical groups):
    Code:
    /script lbStylesOptions.oldstyle.frameWidth = XXXX
    /script lbStylesOptions.oldstyle.frameHeight = XXXX
    /reloadui
    B. Changelog
    1.0.1.3 (04-07-2012)
    -Added: Buff priority (when a buff has priority it will be always shown and never overwritten).
    -Added: Descriptions into abilities list.
    -Added: Descriptions into recorded debuffs list.
    -Added: Group member and groups growth option, see addon description for details.
    -Added: Lock + Unlock options (locking also makes the green circle disappear so to edit configuration you must write "/lb config" when is locked).
    -Added: Mana bar height option.
    -Added: Name character count option (requires reloadui to take effect due optimization).
    -Added: Priority/blocked list import from other roles (it will -add- the debuffs from the role you choose).
    -Added: Ready check support.
    -Added: Tooltips on mousebinds icons (finally you can see what spell/command it is when is placed).
    -Fixed: After applying styles options the unit frames were not responding to clicks.
    -Fixed: Frame dimensions in the other tabs not changing after changing it in the styles options tab.
    -Fixed: Green circle position (now it's in the correct position).

    1.0.1.2 (04-04-2012)
    -Added: Basic options for styles so that users can easily change positioning of the panel.

    1.0.1.1 (04-04-12)
    -Intial Release of LifeBinder.

    C. Known Bugs v1.0.1.1
    * Reloading the interface or loading it during combat won't work, those are the limitations of the API
    * If someone disconnects and reconnects in a 5 man group while in combat it will have some problems, (why trion must you rearrange groups to have the disconnected player take the last frame? WHY????!)

    Edit timer seems to be turned off in this subforum now. I can still edit posts I made in March.

    Edit2: the earliest my post in addons forums which I'm able to edit was made on 11-08-2011. The last post before that was made on 08-04-2011. Sometime between April and August edit timer for this subforum was turned off.

    Please guys, do not post in this thread if it doesn't have to do with the addon. Yes I know the thread is differently structured than any other addon posted before. We are going to change the way it looks bit by bit. We are sectioning the thread to prevent character caps and allow us to organize our presentation in an easy to digest way. (not to be rude or anything)

    We are thinking about it, I personally hate curse... however they have a functional auto-updater... We will decide for the next version.

    No not yet, not until v1.0.1.2, we are still adding GUI options and making a good set of slash commands.

    A lot of really nice perks added, I love that the buff timers turn red when it's about to fall off.


    Is there any way to resize the frames? They are very small on my resolution.. I could not find any option to make them bigger though :s
    afk tera.
