• Party frames still not appearing

    • Version: 4.1.2 Fixed Bug Priority: Normal

    I fresh installed the addon recently and now classic and minimal party frames aren't working. Nothing appears, but the transparent ones show and you can target people with them (wasn't working before in party or raid frames).

     

    With raid frames, the "show while solo" and "show while in party" doesn't work, but when in a raid the frame appears and you can target people with it (mines on classic btw).

    Also no errors are being thrown for any of this.

    Update: As for the newest version 4.2.0-release classic party frames still don't work, but minimal party frames are showing and target the person when clicked.

    The "show while solo" button for raid frames will flash like it's going to show the raid frames, then disappears ("show while in party" still isn't doing anything)

    I have been doing alot of messing around with frames the last 2 days, i have not ran into a case where the classic and Minimal party frames don't work. Can you try deleting the SpartanUI file from your WTF folder? 

     

    As for the Raid Frames Show while solo, it is not working anymore in legion and i am not sure why, the reason it blinks is i tried to force it shown and something is re-hiding it. I am still looking into it but I am bouncing around a bit.

    So, you want me to remove the spartanui.lua and .lua.bak files from the saved variables folder in the WTF folder? cause i did that and all it did was get rid of all my profiles and didn't fix the issue :/ i'll try to fresh install the addon again.

     

    Update: I just tried to fresh install spartanui and remove some of my old or unused addons, like Auctioneer suite that hasn't been updated yet, and still classic party frame is the only thing not working for me. :/ minimal works and is ok, but i don't like it quite as much as classic.

    Yes, the transparent ones worked for me and i just downloaded the alpha version. 

    Both minimal and transparent party frames worked before I downloaded the alpha version and after, but classic still doesn't appear at all. I really have no idea why; I've tested while solo, while in a party, and on multiple new characters but it never appears.

     

    Also show raid frames while solo is working for me in the alpha version, but show while in party (while show solo is not selected) doesn't work. In case you didn't already know this.

    I have just experienced the same issue, and have 4.2.2-Release-4-gdd8d529. Classic party frames do not show when in a party. I was able to get them to show by changing my party frame to minimal, but it still won't show in transparent or classic. I reloaded and switched between the three artworks 3 times. The person that I was in a party with has the same release of Spartan, and wasn't able to get any party frames to work - even on minimal.

    I did not know that I will add a fix in for that.

    Can i get the following from anyone having the issue:
         1. What class are you playing?

         2. Where are you when this occurs? (In org i.e. random group, LFR, Instance, BG). 

         3. Post your SpartanUI.LUA file from "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\SavedVariables".

        4. Are you in combat when the group is formed?

        5. List of addons, or alternative disable all other addons and see if the issue goes away. (There are not usually to many issues with other addons and if there is it usually generates a LUA error but never know something is not normal. To get a list either screenshot the list or if the list is too big open a command prompt, type in dir hit space then drag the addons folder into the window, hit enter and you should get a listing of all the folders in your addons folder. To copy from command prompt Right click in the command prompt select "Mark", Hit Control+A, Hit enter. (It is now in your clipboard) Paste it into a text file and attach it to your post.)

    Thanks, i will dig into that in the morning, in the meantime can i get you to run this command once you join a party:

    /script print(SUI_PartyFrameHeaderUnitButton2:IsVisible())

    it should return true. if it returns false then somehow it is there but positioned off of the screen. if you get an L you a error then that means it's not even attempting to make the party frames

     spartanUI version : SpartanUI-4.3.0-Beta-1-g334ec3d

    1.  This happens on every character I play even if I make a new one it's the same. Classic frames don't work other 2 do work for me.

    2. As I said this happens on every character even new ones and it seems to happen no matter where I am, but majority of the time I'll be in Org or leveling a new character with refer a friend.

    3. SpartanUI.lua. There was also a SpartanUI.lua.bak file in mine, not sure what that's for.

    4. When I see if classic works I just invite a random person in org so I'm not in combat and I have show while solo on (I've tried with this and a few other options off too).

    5. I have tried disabling all other addons, may be worth trying removing them from the addons folder idk. But here's my list of addons:

    I tried this with classic frame on and it returned true. does that mean it's there, but i can't see it?

    Yes it should. open Spartan help screen "/suihelp" click on "Reset movable frames" see if it shows up.

    Edit: Show while solo will work for these, you don't need to be in a group.

     

    Run this it will tell us where it thinks it is

    /script print(SUI_PartyFrameHeader:GetPoint())

     

    Another command you can try (not sure if it will help since the reset button did not work but worth a shot)

    /script SUI_PartyFrameHeader:ClearAllPoints()
    /script SUI_PartyFrameHeader:SetPoint("CENTER", UIParent, "CENTER", 0, 0)

    You have to run those one at a time in the chatbox, macro will not work :(. It should put the unit frame dead center in your screen.

     

    Also try to disable MoveAnything. Both you and ErinBytes have it and it has caused issues in the past.

    /script print(SUI_PartyFrameHeader:GetPoint())

    TOPLEFT nil TOPLEFT 4.88 -72.076 (same for both minimal and classic (except minimal shows up)

    /script SUI_PartyFrameHeader:ClearAllPoints()
    /script SUI_PartyFrameHeader:SetPoint("CENTER", UIParent, "CENTER", 0, 0)

    Disabled MoveAnything and ran both on classic and nothing happened. switched to minimal and ran both it went to center of screen. 

    Seems pretty clear that the position isn't the problem. The frame just won't show for some reason.

     

    Also does spartan UI save cache files anywhere? I think it started happening right after prepatch the same time the whole UI wasn't showing. idk if the two could be related.

    agreed position is not the issue it is definitely something in the frame configuration.
