Discord Art  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 8.3.0
by: Fizzlemizz [More]

NOTE: A Shadowlands Beta version is now available for download.

Lozareth's configurable, scriptable Discord Art.

Classic version also available for download

Updates.
8.3.0

  • Update: for 8.3: Visions of N'Zoth.

See the Change Log (tab above) for a list of all changes.

Modify your World of Warcraft environment to suit your style. Add textures that are clickable, will react to events ie. showing when you aquire a target and hiding again when not and lots lots more.

NOTE: If you change the file names of, copy, move, add texture files etc. and let's not forget typos while in-game, you will have to completely exit WOW and re-start before the "new" textures will register (going back to the character select or account login screens is not good enough).

A bright green blob where your amazing artwork is supposed to appear is a good indicator your texture hasn't registered when the game loaded (did I mention typos ).

SCRIPTS
Because the ubiquitous "this" is no longer a valid construct in WOW Lua, the scripting engine has been changed to include/parse "self" as a replacement to "this". "param" is still the universal parameter 1 name passed to scripts so for OnEvent self= the old "this" and param = the "event" parameter. For OnUpdate, self= the old "this" and param = the "elapsed" parameter. For OnClick self = the old "this" and param = the "button" paramter etc...

FUNCTIONS
Version 6.1 added the ability to create custom functions that are "compiled" to the private DART table, they are NOT global. These functions can be called from any texture script or any of your other custom functions. See the Function Options section of the ReadMe.htm for more information.

***USING OLDER DART
If you load a DART profile imported from pre 5.0 version of Discord Art you may (most likely will) get errors due to scripting that is no longer valid. The WOW API has changed a lot so these will need some careful attention.

***IF YOU DO GET ERRORS, please post the full error message and a discription of what you were doing at the time.

For information on how to customise DART, the Readme.html in your "[WOW]\Interface\Addons\DiscordArt" folder is the place to go. It's old school like DART but it will get updated as required.

Sharing your DART configuration: Dreadlorde's Discord Custom Layout Extractors (The DART_Custom sub-folder) still works with Discord Art. You will need to enable "Out of date Addons" under the Addons button of the character selection screen. DART MUST be installed as well otherwise errors will be generated ie. only install the extracor(s) for the Discord addons you have installed. See the ReadMe file in each extractors folder for information on how to use DCLE.

Dates are in dd/mm/yyyy format.

  • Update: for 8.3: Visions of N'Zoth.

Hi saenokda,
Thanks for trying Discord Art.

DART way older the KG so it does some things slightly differently because the API wasn't as flexible in some areas "back in the day".

If you open the Misc. entries (Misc. Options button bottom/left) you can increase the number of panels (Textures) the addon has to work with.

Re: Re: Imported Image Transparency

Not sure what was wrong with the alpha channels of my .TGA's but the converter worked! Thanks again for such a timely reply.

You can convert to/from .png/.blp using Blpng Conveter if you want to try using .png as the base but it shouldn't make any difference if the alpha channel is set.

Is there an image format or DART setting I can try so that my images work more like PNG's as shown above?

The included readme.txt (setup information) should help.

I think this is/was just one varient on a theme.

Hi KTMFinX,
Thank you for using DART and reporting the problem.

It looks like it was a bug introduced with the release of TBC...
Fizzle, you are amazing. The fix worked - thank you so much for the easy solution and quick response time

Hi KTMFinX,
Thank you for using DART and reporting the problem.

It looks like it was a bug introduced with the release of TBC to try and get around the potential for hiding/showing secure frames (like unit frames) causing taint leading to errors.

If you open the file DART_Functions.lua (located in the DiscordArt addons folder) using any text editor (like NotePad) and find the lines (around line 170/171):

Code:
texture:SetBackdropColor(DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.r, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.g, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.b, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgalpha);
texture:SetBackdropBorderColor(DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.r, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.g, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.b, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].borderalpha);
and add two dashes to the beginning of the lines so they look like:
Code:
--	texture:SetBackdropColor(DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.r, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.g, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgcolor.b, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bgalpha);
--	texture:SetBackdropBorderColor(DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.r, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.g, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].bordercolor.b, DART_Settings[DART_INDEX][textureIndex].borderalpha);
Should fix it.

I'll add this change to the next release.
Thank you again and have fun!

Discord Art Classic - not remembering Blend Mode

Hi Fizzlemizz!

My current problem is that Discord Art Classic 1.13.1 doesn't seem to remember the Blend Mode of a texture when "shown" by a Control parameter. Right now my goal is to have a texture appear behind the Target frame whenever a target is selected, and disappear whenever no target is selected.

So far I've been able to import the textures as TGA's and have them display correctly when the Blend Mode is set to BLEND (shown in the 2nd screenshot). However if I de-select then re-select a target, the Blend Mode seems to change to something else (behaves like DISABLE, shown in 3rd screenshot).

Do you know what I can do as a work-around for this? I feel like maybe if I can use the CODE section to tell DART to set the BlendMode to BLEND OnShow it could work, but I'm not experienced enough in coding to know what string or function to type out.

I understand this could just be a Classic-specific issue (but hopefully it isn't!)

Thank you Aur0r4 for all the input, it is greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing that having an addon listed under a "Compilations" category you would be listed as an "AddOn Compiler" and having an addon listed under a non compilation category you would be listed as an "Interface Author" (which is why I have both as my UI addon is a "compilation" on top of my other "standalone" addons like DART).

If you have a UI replacement "addon" made up of lot's of "bits" mostly of your own code rather than combining other addons (ElvUI etc.), you can list it under Suites which I think will also give you "Interface Author" (it will add your addon to the New and Updated list when you upload a new version).

You could confirm with Seerah, Cairenn or Dolby.

The problem is that the PitBull frames don't exits when DART loads (or when KgPanels loads).
DART was made in early vanilla when the API was very different and most addons created their frames in XML which were loaded while you watched the blue bar scroll across the screen before play starts.

As far as I'm aware, KgPanels is on it 3rd or 4th rewrite and is taking advantage of "new" understanding and methods.

The code I posted was to make one or all (depending on the method used) of the DART frames you want anchored to a PitBull Frame essentially just wait unit PitBull created the frame(s) (which may never happen if you didn't group or open the PB setup window) and then do the anchoring.

Because it's never come up, I've never thought about it but a "watch" process could probably be added to DART for frames that don't exist at load so the "workaround" I described wouldn't be needed. I'm guessing KgPanels does something similar.

I'll do some testing and see if it's workable. Thank you for the "suggestion" Aur0r4

As for hosting an addon on WoWI, press the big orange button top right of the main page and follow the steps to create a basic page. Add the information about the addon (there is a "Managa Addon" link in the upper right of pages/addons you "own"). It's very simple and the WoWI site moderators are all awesome and friendly.

Edit: I see you're already an addon compiler so maybe you are wanting to create an "Author Portal" for bug reports etc. I created mine and it's barely used, most people post questions etc. in the addon comments but you should be able to create a portal using the author menu options at the top (it's been a looong time so I'm not 100% certain about that).
