SquidFrames with 3D Portrait

SquidFrame is an addon that lets you change your standard WoW Player Frame by allowing you to easily type /squidframe to go to a settings window where you can select one of the over 45 frames (and 28 SquidMod textures!) and change the standard frame to one of those. You can use an option/alt click command to drag the frame wherever you like; and it has a 3D portrait just for fun, updated version also allows you to edit the target and focus frame.

V2.3 Now includes a modified version of SquidMod by ganders, with updated gfx patch by Imithat

Note From the Authors:

Whizque (Author v1.0 and 1.1)
I first started with Class Player Frame which didn't have the option to change the player frame in-game and I didn't know how to do that :( But then I remember about SquidMod (I always loved this addon since SAM first started it) now maintained by Ganders, instead of the gryphon (on the actionbar) I want to change player frame, so it's pretty much the same useless addon :P

Skórr (Author v1.5, v1.5a, and 1.6)
I have deleted WoW off of my computer and my WarCraft days are over, Triadian is now taking over and I hope he can bring it back up to page 2 of the Unit Frames page. If anything doesn't work im very sorry, I havn't played since version 3.3.0 of WoW so its probably a little out of date, but I hope you guys enjoy the new frames! (If they work)... Goodbye, and hope you enjoyed my updates! Also if you want an addon just for the elite frames by all meens get EliteFrame

Triadian (Author v2.0a to current)
i decided to add some of my own gfx to some frames along with the Intuitive mode, if intuitive is turned on the addon will select the best frame based on your character.

1.0 - 1.1 uses most of the codes from SquidMod by Ganders for it to work but 1.5 and up changed it a lot but some of the credit still goes to him. I hope you enjoy it!

    I have found out how to stop the Lua erros (at least for now, didn't test in RBG, only in raids and dungeons). Remvoe the following lines in the Visual.lua archive (open with notepad):

    Line 22 and lines 106-107-108 . Still don't repair the portrait of target of target, but stoped the annoying message of Lua erros for me.
