Hey there. I just downloaded '01/16/2012 - v1.01a' and it wouldn't show up in my AddOns list at character select.

Then I changed the name of the extracted folder from 'pNameplates-v1.01' to 'pNameplates', so it matched the .toc entry.

That might trip up users less familiar with AddOn rules!

--

Changing font settings does not seem to do anything unless you /reload. It might be a good idea to include a warning about this, so users don't think the command is broken.

I'm unable to get /pp font size n to make any visible change to the nameplate text, even with reload. I tried 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 300, and 1000.

Good catch, thanks for letting me know. I uploaded a reorganized zip file -- it should be available within the next few minutes. Let me know if the problem persists.

As for the fonts, I'll upload a fix tonight. I originally intended to only have the health percent font type change and left out the other text updates when I expanded the font type to all the text elements. Health percents are the only text element with a configurable size for the time being, however, I plan to implement additional font configuration for Name/Level text at some point.

Nice, getting there! I would like the option to swap the name / health positions if possible ! Also, you should add an option to hide totems. Not really necessary for pve..

And for your zip package, don't put a "pNameplates-v1.02" folder, just pNameplates so we can just unzip it in Addons... thanks!

Keep it up !

Definitely doable, I'll look into it.

Additionally, they are toggleable through Blizzards in-game config as well: Menu>Interface>Game>Names>Check-boxes at the bottom. Just in-case you didn't know.

I assume that you are talking about re-coloring the friendly player name text that is not associated with the nameplate (i.e. The name text that floats above a unit when a nameplate is not visible). Currently, I don't plan to implement this feature, as it is not directly related to the Nameplate functionality itself.

Hello,

First off, I wanted to say thank you for developing such a healthy alternative to other, more bloated nameplate addons. I gave this addon a go and I am highly impressed - though there are two things holding me back, currently.

1) I know it is listed on the description page - but being able to modify the height and width of the nameplate is a must for me, currently I am having trouble playing with the default size.

2) Will you ever consider some more advanced text placement options, such as having options for inside left, and inside right - rather than just the center or just the outside of the nameplate?

Thank you so much for your time and consideration of my requests/suggestions!

Glad you like it!

I am a fan your additional text placement positions idea - they will be added in an upcoming update. The resizing options are on my to-do list, as well.

first of all, i'm sorry for my possibly crappy english
great addon, very lightweight!
is there any chance you could make an way for the Threat Profiles to work automatically? or have them assignable to a spec?(for example primary tank and secondary dps/heal) this is mostly what i look for in a nameplate addon, but the only ones that do this are way heavy and bloated
also, it looks better with the name on top and the health on the lifebar, it should be like that by default imho =P

EDIT: also the addon shows as "out of date", is that just me?

I made a typo in the .toc file last update -- it will be fixed in the next one. As for the spec-based threat profiles, I should be able to add that in a future update. I have not had as much time to crank out updates as of late, but keep an eye out for one over the next couple weeks.

Would like to request the font re-sizing option for cast bar as well. Really simple and well done on the rest.

Used in conjunction with Aurora

Hello! My English is not very good, first apologize!
I had a problem with Aurora used together, always wrong, the following error:
Code:
19x pNameplates-1.6.0\core.lua:199: attempt to call method "GetTexture" (a nil value)
pNameplates-1.6.0\core.lua:199: in function <pNameplates\core.lua:197>
pNameplates-1.6.0\core.lua:521: in function <pNameplates\core.lua:515>

Locals:
plate = <unnamed> {
 0 = <userdata>
}
elapsed = 40.780735015869
current = 3
(for index) = 2
(for limit) = 3
(for step) = 1
i = 2
plate = FrameStackTooltip {
 0 = <userdata>
}
total = 3
ForceUpdate = true
MoveText = false
IsNameplate = <func> @pNameplates\core.lua:197

StyleTextures = <func> @pNameplates\core.lua:216
StyleFonts = <func> @pNameplates\core.lua:266
UpdateTextLocations = <func> @pNameplates\core.lua:412
Is there a solution? Thank you!

@BNS

Have you tried downloading the most recent version of pNameplates? That should fix the problem.
