Libsharedmedia 3.0 supported

Some features. Too many to list

  • Priority flag system. Each bar has a status flag to tell when to hide, show, etc.
  • Textures 'GUB Bright Bar', 'GUB Dark Bar', and 'GUB Square Border' can be used with any mod that has libsharedmedia.
  • All bars can be fully customized to how you want them to look.
  • All bars can be rotated. For health and power bars fill direction can be changed to match the rotation.
  • All bars have frame strata. If you want a bar to appear above another add ons UI. This should help.
  • Trigger system for more advanced options.
  • Alignment tool allows bars to be lined up for perfection. Right click a bar when bars are not locked to activate the tool.
  • Test Mode. Make changes to bars without having to use combat to do it.

  • A lot of bars have borders these can be hidden. For example: In the shard bar when in box mode. There should be an option called 'background'.
    In there you will see a pulldown called border. Select 'none' and the bar will have no visible border. You can do the same to bars that are not in box mode as well.

    Feature Request: check to color bars using Reaction Color in addition to a custom color or class colors.
