I’ve had some queries popping up seeking more information about X-perl unit frames (and grid… and vuhdo… and pitbull). However, since X-perl is the easiest to configure and set up, we’ll tackle the ins and outs of X-perl first. Most configuration options in X-perl are yes/no only (see all the checkboxes?) The author has also provided great mouseover tooltip support explaining what the majority of the options are, so really, my explanations will be limited to things that I think may be confusing or hard to find.
Part One will just provide a brief overview of what you get “out of the box,” no fiddling necessary.
When you first boot up, the following scene will meet you — notice that your WoW player frame has been replaced by X-perl, and you have a big mucking box indicating your assists and healers.
Notice that little pearl icon hanging out on your minimap? Clicking on it will open your X-perl configuration panel, where all the magic happens…
When you X-perl configuration panel is open every x-perl frame becomes click to drag. If you want to move the location of your player/party/pet/focus/target or raid frames, you can only do so while the configuration menu is open. With zero changes, your party/target/target of target frames will look like this:
And your raid frames will look like this:
Just a few things I’d like to point out at this point. With no changes, all of your frames will display buffs and debuffs and have color indicators on frames for things like aggro and dispellable debuffs. Pet frames for party/raids/player will also display.
Come on down for Part 2, configuring your daily frames (no raid drama) later this week!
