    @Twopro: Go

    Apparently it seems to be my fault.

    I forget to uncomment a line that checks for the variable in "WTF / .... / SavedVariables / RaidTargetIcon.lua".

    Correted in the next version, "needs approval statut"

    okay, i'm going to run !swatter to see if i can't find what the deal is. cause this morning i lead a 25bh raid and the raid target icon flares were working for me but once my group and i entered bh 25 got infront of the boss it didn't work but after asking someone to do it for me via giving someone assist like enabled me to use flares. i don't know if this is like a safety net for blizzard to not allow raid target icons in battle grounds/single lead raid or just a bug from my other addons.

    i'm banking on a combo of both but i'm running !swtter and i'll let you know what i find.

    I have tested with Xperl + Error Monster + HideUnitFrames and i haven't any problem.

    Try to desactivate Error Monster and activate Lua error in Wow menu / interface / help.

    Hoping that it shows something.

    PS : Delete World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YourAccount\SavedVariables\RaidTargetIcon.lua
    And why not :
    World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YourAccount\YourServer\YourCharacter(s)\SavedVariables\RaidTargetIcon.lua

    so weird, you won't believe this. i re-enabled error monster now and RTI addon still works i don't know what to think now but i can't get the flares to show no matter how many times i enter /rti flare show.

    my only thoughts on this matter is that unit hide blizzard frames or error monster auto conflicts with your addon unless you run RTI first before others but i don't see why that'd make a difference but it does somehow.

    but it still doesn't make sense why i got an xperl error over it. but ya what option on xperl would cause this to happen? i can check on that

    but yeah, i have a few hide frames addons i use 1 but which would you recommend? HideBlizzz, hidebossframes,hideparty or hideunitframes. i'm using hideunitframes right now cause it has all options in 1. i don't use xperl party cause i use docnameplates i really don't need to see other player's frames during pvp unless im killing that person.

    only frames addon that im running besides xperl is ouf 1.3.28and ouf d3orbs light that mistra created. Hideunitframes, and im running

    xperl unit frames xperl options xperl target xperl target's target.

    okay, it seems that an addon called "Error monster" is preventing the flare options on my ui cause i just diabled it and now i can click on flares and use that feature properly

    but however, my flare icons options aren't showing i had it working earlier.

    every time i enter /rti show flare nothing happens.

    Hello, i have just tested with Xperl r563 and i haven't your problem. I have never used Xperl so it's the default configuration and i have desactivated all the other addons, i have looking in the xperl menu and the only option that maybe interfered with my addon is "Also hide default raid manager (this also break/taints raid frames)" but i have try with and without this option and it still work normaly as you can see in the screen that i uploaded.

    Maybe it's a third addon that interfere with xperl and mine, you haven't an other addon in relation with raid frames or icons ?

    hey dude can you take a look at a new problem i've found. i joined a battle grounds game, i'm Lead. i throw down a few raid icons, i go off to Water works, come back to mine later in the game. i select raid flares to throw down again and this is the msg i received.

    Xperl has been blocked from an action only available to the blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and release UI.

    what doesn't make sense is i'm using your addon to set raid icon flares not xperl. anyways, if you could look into this cause i downloaded raid target icon like an hour after you updated and its been working up to this point literary.
