Gladius  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.0
by: Proditor, Rinu
What is Gladius?
Gladius adds enemy unit frames to arenas for easier targeting and focusing. It shows a health bar, a mana bar below the health bar (optional), a cast bar below the mana bar (optional), a class icon to the left side of the health bar (optional) and important buffs and crowd control durations (optional, overlays the class icon). The frame resizes itself to the current bracket (optional).

Gladius uses the 3.0.2 arena unit ids, therefore it'll add units automatically to the frame (byebye targeting macros) and you'll always be able to target/focus the enemies, regardless of if they are added when you're in combat. The cast bars and the buff/debuff timers should be 100% correct.

You can add important buffs and crowd controls in the auralist.lua file. You will have to select a priority for it. If a buff/debuff is already displaying when the spell is cast it'll only show up on the class icon if the priority equals or is higher than the current one displayed.

More features:
Arena enemies targets (optional): displays the class of the arena enemy's current target in a small frame on the health bar to the right.

Trinket status (optional): has a few different display options, but in general it shows if the PvP Trinket is ready for the arena enemy.

Slash commands:
/gladius ui, config, options - displays the configuration screen
/gladius test1-5 - shows a test frame with the chosen amount of test units
/gladius hide - hides the test frame
/gladius trinket - simulates a trinket being used for the first arena target

But.. but.. this is very similar to Proximo and SSAF?
Yes, I simply created this as a learning project for Lua. I actually didn't plan on releasing it but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good and decided to give it a go. I do not expect to start competing with the big boys, but perhaps someone else is interested in using it.

Thanks:
Thanks to Proximo, SSArena Frames and their respective developers for working as both inspirational and informational sources.

My Problem is, that every 200 games, often a few games after each other, my Gladius bugs out.
It only Shows 1 Enemy, and the other are shown as if they were in stealth.
It also drops my Fps realy low, to like 3-4 fps the whole arena match.

Anyone knows what can cause this or how to solve the problem?


Help is very appreciated.
thanks

Lightbulb Feature suggestion

This is a fantastic addon; there is rely only one thing I'd like to see added and thats a bit more customization for the cast bars.
It would be amazing if you could configure the cast bars to appear to the right or left of the unit much like in the screen shot below.



Thanks for you work,
-John

Is it possible to make gladius bars and aura-class-trinket icons more customisable i.e. make'em more independent from each other?

Hi! Gladius didnt update well (i.e. he didt update at all) if dead body was ressurected during arena fight - it keep showing those "body" as dead while its (again) alive.

P.S. if u can "steal" some part of afflicted (or maybe other) addon's code and make it track not only enemy trinkets but enemy "key" CD's (like IB, CoH, evade, innervate and so on) it would be great

So, "Grow Frame Upwards" option appears to be completely borked. When I switch from normal to bottoms-up mode, the "Gladius - drag to move" bar remains where it is, and the background frame is above it. The first unitframe is drawn above the drag handle as expected, but all other unitframes still descend downwards from there. When I try locking the frame, it moves from the bottom half of the screen where I've got it positioned back close to the top again.

This isn't a huge priority, I'll just let it draw frames from the top until / unless you get a chance to fix it. It's just a preference thing.

Thanks for the nice frames!!!

Prompt please, may I change the font in this addon, and if possible, how to change the file path to the font.
And also another question, is it possible to change the border class icons and accessories? (Image)

I was hoping I could post a request. Would it be possible to get a trinket timer, kinda like the aura timer? Mainly for the big trinket option.

Thanks.

Re: Some Critical Errors

Originally posted by goldensword52
Ever since one or two updates ago, gladius encounters a critical error whenever I go into an arena. The ui configuration settings still work, and the test mode works fine. But as soon as I enter the arena, I get the error:

Error: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
File: Interface/Addons/Gladius/Gladius.lua
Line: 796
Count: 2

I beleive this happens when gladius tries to create the fame that the enemies will appear in, but an error occurs involving clique support. The end result is that no gladius window appears, not even an empty one waiting to be filled like usual.

After that, once the arena match begins and the enemies are visible, I get a second error:

Error: attempt to index local 'button' (a nil value)
File: Interface/Addons/Gladius/Gladius.lua
Line: 765
Count: 1

I hope these errors can be resolved soon, because gladius is an amazing addon and I look foreward to using it properly again.
Thank you for this report, it solved the issue, wanna see more reports like that! New revision incoming soon.

Apologies for the delayed response. But the error is this:

Interface\Addons\Gladius\Gladius.lua:605: attempt to index field "mana" (a nil value)
