There's my UI. My question is regarding my chatbox, which is currently Prat, but Chatter does the same thing so maybe it's something else somehow affecting my chat addon. Anyways, I'm specifically asking about the low-opacity background on the chat. Even adjusting every setting I can find in Prat (and in Chatter when I used that), absolutely nothing will get rid of the background entirely. They both fade to exactly the same level of opaque even with every single alpha setting in both addons at 0%, which hints to me that it's something else. Any thoughts?
Doing that creates the addon just fine but it comes up as 'Incompatible' both in the character select screen list of addons and in Addon Control Panel. I even added "## Interface: 50200" to the top of the .toc file but that doesn't fix it.
Edit: Doesn't show as incompatible anymore but also doesn't give me the result.
Edit 2: Doing /run DEFAULT_CHATFRAME_ALPHA = 0 also does nothing. Was that removed/changed by Blizzard at some point?
Edit 3: I'm goddamn retarded. I found the official Blizzard way of doing it by right-clicking the chat tab and lowering that Opacity.
I'm trying to set up Weak Auras for my Guard ability (Brewmaster Monk) but I can't get it to show what I want.
Basically I've made three Icon displays and put them into a dynamic group and I want only one of them showing at a time.
One for showing Guard buff uptime:
One for showing Guard ability cooldown (not to be shown while Guard buff is still up):
One for showing that Guard is ready to use:
If anyone can figure out why this setup isn't working for me, it'd be greatly appreciated!
i have posted this question already in death knight subforum so i appologise for repost.
i need an addon for a dk tank, something that will tell me when to pull aggro of a fellow tank, basicaly as bosses stack some debuffs on another tank i have to watch that and pull on, lets say, 3 stacks of specific debuff. since im too lazy and too clumsy to constantly check the other tank i need something that will do that for me and alert me when to pull the boss. if you have any suggestions please help.
I am running a older computer and I don't plan to upgrade anytime soon unless wow becomes unplayable. Could someone give me some addon alternatives that are easier on WoW preformance then my current addons.
xperl unit and raid frames
auctionator -- only because it makes browsing and selling easier but I don't play the AH game.
What do you need your raid and unit frames to tell you.
What features do you need from a bag addon, your minimap, your chat.
The main culprits in being resource hogs are the damage meters and combat text addons, and if you really do need to see a damage meter at short notice or during combat then you won't find anything much different to what skada is doing.
Auctionator or similar addons are using very little resources when not scanning the auction house, so should have having little to no impact on your performance any other time.
Simply reading from a static database, which unless you are hovering over buttons or items in bags should not be happening during combat, and can most likely be turned off unless a certain key is held to display the extra tooltip.

xperl unit and raid frames --- I'd try an oUF layout such as Mlight
titan panel --- Can be achieved with lightweight broker addons (although a lot of this info is pointless in my mind)
bartender ---- about as lightweight as you get
bagon ----ame as above
chatter ----could try rChat by zorker - its quite lightweight
sexymap ---- qMinimap is simple and lightweight
DBM ----- thi i a heavy addon but its the only one out there.
skada ----- alDamageMeter i verrrrrry lightweight compared to skada and recount
auctionator -- auctionator sucks...period. then again...i could care less about working the AH.
Alot of these addon are nice too because they can be skinned to make your UI feel N-SYNC (BAM! I DID IT!) [SharedMedia, LibSharedMedia comes to mind]
Anywho this is all just my opinion and I'm sure you'l get a myriad of different answers soooo. YAH!
I use skada to review my performance outside of combat and use it as a threat meter during combat. I used to run omen, but I had skada open so I figure it is just as good at telling me threat.
I just wondered if there was a lighter unit frame add on that might not require the processing power that xperl does. I am not saying xperl uses a lot, but there might be something lighter weight.
Thanks for responding.

Thanks for the response. I think I will try rchat.
is Shadowed Unit Frames lighter than xperl?
I use it for Prot Warr tanking and its quite lovely.
Also, Stuf Unit Frames is a good ligthweight option compared to other bulky ones.

Hi guys! I'am currently having a problem with my UI and really can't seem to solve it.
This is my UI, it's something I've been using for years now and it's working fine for me : http://i46.tinypic.com/k4c9sn.jpg
Problem I have is with the "tiny debuff and buff meters" on Sexycooldown when I target someone or a boss. I can't find the option to turn them off.
Secondly, I have a small resolution and only limited amount of space, anyone has a good addon for UI-frames for bosses? The Blizzard UI standard is "ok" but would prefer more detailed ones where I could track my own DoTs (if possible).
Thanks for looking!
Hmm my Dominos (skinned with Masque) have perfect borders but when I try to move them they get borked up (they get a really thick border on the left side) and I can't for the life om me remember how I got borders to show properly.
How do you setup a Skada window, where it shows current target damage done. So say you're on one mob (i.e. the Loa on Council of Elders) you can see who is damaging it, but when you go back to another target, it automatically switches back to show you the damage done for that attempt on that mob (i.e. Sul)
