Power Auras Classic v4

Power Auras Classic v4

Designed to give visual or audible cues to the user in response to in-game events, such as gaining buffs or debuffs. Types of cues range from simple texture displays to stack counters, timers to timer bars, and are fully user-configurable. Can be animated or have sounds attached as well.

If you upgraded to Power Auras 5, it is recommended that you remove it and restore your old WTF folder configuration files for PowerAuras if possible. If you did not upgrade to Power Auras 5, everything should work as normal.

The GTFO Addon will work with both Power Auras 4 and Power Auras 5 and no update is necessary.

Slash commands

  • "/pa" - Brings up the configuration menu.
  • "/powa" - Brings up the configuration menu.


What changed so far

  • The addon is fully updated for Mists of Pandaria, ids, spells, classes, power and instance types, api changes, etc.
  • Also the addon is going to properly work in older game clients too.
  • The addon's whole GUI menu got tweaked up, bugged parts are fixed.
  • Added new fonts, texture, sounds.
  • Fixed a lot of glitchy textures.
  • Recoded all texture to RLE loseless targa, which uses less memory. (When the addon show a texture, then the texture is going to stay compressed in the memory, the video card is going to decompress it, and it's going to stay uncompressed in the video card's cache.)
  • Added dropdowns to change the textures blend mode. (This function also replaces the removed "Glow" buttons functionality when set to "ADD".)
  • Added dropdowns to change the frame's and the texture's strata levels. (1 single texture can be placed on 8*20*4*15 = 9600 different strata levels.)
  • Added an option to use gradient colors for the texture, this function also works with the random color function properly.
  • Added an option to grayscale textures.
  • Added an option to display icons with rounded edges.
  • Added a function to rotate textures.
  • Every slider has an editbox now.
  • Every slider's value can be changed with mousewheel up/down, while the mouse is over a slider or it's editbox. (This function replaces the removed "-" and "+" buttons functionality.)
  • Cluthcy and bugged animations got fixed, their other parts got tweaked.
  • Added an option to show predefined, custom and custom unitid (player, target, focus, etc) type 3D Models from the game. This models can be animated, rotated, zoomed in/out, or moved inside of their frame, within all the other functions what textures has.
  • Sounds will be played when you test or hide and aura, if sound is assigned for that aura.
  • Millions of other smaller fixes and changes, see Changes or "!Changelog.txt" for details.

    I'm having trouble bringing up the controls for Power Auras. When I use /pa or /powa in the command line I just get a small window giving me the version number? How can I get to the controls?

    Not sure wether I'm going over ground that has already been covered and too many posts to check ! In WoD monks have now got empowered chi which gives a 6th chi but your auras don't give an option to display it they only go to 5. Would love it if you could fix this mate :)

    Haven't levevled my pally yet so I'm not sure wether it will get a 6th holy power and same for other classes might be worth looking into.

    Incidentally my whole raid experience revolves around this addon so I'm considering naming my first born after you !

    Thanks !

    Seems like a great add-on, but I have a question, noob here.

    What I want to do is when Wild Strike Procs from Blood Thirst it will show up, not when I have enough rage to use Wild Strike, the option I used was, Useable Action, which causes it to show up when Wild Strike is available from having enough rage. Which is understandable since whats what Usable Action would mean, but, I want it just to show up if it Procs. Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you for your time, and a Great Add-On.

    Great work. Thx. Most auras won't work until you completely uncheck the vehicle checkbox. This should be a bug, but a small one :) *German client*
