The Error Too Many Anchors Process is not due to ggFrames however its a bug within the ESO Game whenever too many addons that draw on the screen are active at one time. Until ZeniMax gets around to fixing it, you can use Zolan's Anchors Away add-on to suppress this error.

not working

I thought this addon would be perfect for what I need, but it does not show up visibly. I maybe get one glimpse but as soon as I adjust a setting it goes invisible, the unit frame is still there because it will block anything underneath it that is clickable. I don't get any errors when this happens and the lock frame function makes all unit frames invisible. Im not sure why it is not working for me.

Nevermind, figured it out myself. For those interested replace the line;

GGF.classTextures = {
[1] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_dragonknight.dds",
[2] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_sorcerer.dds",
[3] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_nightblade.dds",
[6] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_templar.dds"



GGF.classTextures = {
[1] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_dragonknight.dds",
[2] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_sorcerer.dds",
[3] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_nightblade.dds",
[4] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_warden.dds",
[6] = "/esoui/art/contacts/social_classicon_templar.dds"


in the file ggFrames\unit\Controls.lua

I realise that this mod is long since discontinued but, until today, it has continued to work for those of us who simply ticked the "Allow out of date addons" box.

The issue is that the Warden class has been introduced today and, when you target a Warden, there is a white box over the bar. This is in the area where the class icon normally resides and, in fact, where the class icon still resides if you target one of the 4 original classes.

Can anyone find a way to make the change required to fix this issue? This is a great little addon and I think, for a skilled LUA modder, this wouldn't take much work.

Many thanks!

I'm making the jump to Lui Extended. Creator says he was partly inspired by ggFrames and the look is very similar. It's also updated regularly.

Corodius has not logged on to esoui since April and even before then he delivered very little in the way of updates. Check out some of the other addons and if it ever does get an update then take a look. Don't be this guy.

Small update to my problem...

The group frame now doesn't work on the EU server, either. The only other addon I'm using that could cause this is Foundry Tactical Combat but I've been using both FTC and GGFrames for about half a year and haven't had problems on the EU server before.

Group frame trouble

So, I use this addon on the EU server and it works amazing, haven't had any problems. However, I recently downloaded the NA server so I could play with some friends and put this mod on there and the group frame just doesn't work. If I try to edit the settings of the group frame, it just vanishes altogether and if I don't edit it at all, it doesn't have the look I want.

Is there a way to make the heath bars of my Teammates and my Target longer? It appears that the sliders are stuck at 0 when attempting to move/drag them.

Can I request a thousands seperator for all overlay...

It just helps to break up the larger numbers.

Also have you considered adding health overlays to raid frame at all?

I'm curious. Will this include LibAddonMenu compatibility so it shows up under "Settings > Addon Settings" instead of under Settings in general?

sth that is bugged for ages (at least in cyrodiil) is the refreshment of the group/raid-frame after some one has released or was rezzed after he died, his healthbar remains empty wich for me as a healer is horrible it is fixed by /reloadui untill someone else has to cease to be (wich can be quite often and then starts to be anoying).

what i would like as well would be the option to move the other HUD elements like synergy notification, action-key notification (for rezzes etc) or the compass aswell. currently i have to use azurahs addon to be able to do so wich creates alot of redundant hud calculation and error notifications
Ok guys, While I have stated I do believe, due to previous and current testing, that this is a Zenimax UI Issue. However, I am trying to track it down, but I am going to need a bit more information to try to do so, As I cannot reproduce this issue at all. I have attempted in Cyrodill a few times, and elsewhere, so any more information you can provide will be immensely useful.

Is it the Group Frame aswell or Only the Raid Frame having the Issues? Do these issues occur when NOT using ggFrames aswell? (I know it sucks to test with default UI, but I kind of need to know that, as I cannot reproduce myself). Have you got any other unit frames addons installed and active?

As for the whole UI Moving thing, that is definitely well outside the scope of ggFrames itself, if I *was* to do this it would be as a separate addon. However, I believe Azurah does this extremely well and anything I did would be simply reinventing the wheel. Make sure that all Unit Frame affecting parts of Azurah are Disabled in the options menu if you are using ggFrames however, as this could possibly cause issues.

Thanks for the reports guys, and any help tracking this down will be greatly appreciated.

I can confirm, that rarely players health bar got desynced. I cannot say how can one reproduce it, but it happens for me approximately once per two or three weeks. Symptoms are as described below - the bar shows rather high value for HP, but then suddenly you are dead. Also very rarely you can see, that the ggFrames continue to show the shield over healthbar, when there is no shield left anymore. This can happen after very intense fight in pvp. So my guess, that some events that are send by game are not processed by addon, or they come at the same time, and some variables got mixed up, or the events are simply lost by api (when there is a huge queue of them). Anyway, I have looked into the structure of addon, and I cannot say that I see any logical flaws - everything should work, but sometimes (very rarely) it does not.

As for short-time buffs - I have stripped this portion of code from FTC addon and implemented it into my own lightweight Lui Extended addon with some code simplifications and additions. And I prefer the combination of ggFrames with Lui Extended together, so I can completely disable FTC for myself. The idea is that ggFrames shows me long-term buffs provided my game API, while my Lui Extended addon tracks user clicking skills and according to internal skill list table I create icons with timers for short-time effects - same thing FTC does in that part.
Again any help tracking this down will be extremely appreciated, and if you can attempt to reproduce it with 0 unit frame addons active that would be excellent aswell. It is frustrating that I cannot reproduce this myself, with quite active gameplay.

edit: also another bug that has been around since the beginning is the random grayed out frame like the person is out of range, but they actually aren't. I have tried to see what causes this, but havn't been able to pinpoint. typically a reloadui fixes it everytime.
G'day Star! I have been meaning to get in contact with you, I have just been rather busy between Thanksgiving and squeezing in time for Addon and Gameplay when I can. Send me a PM if you can, I'll have a chat with you. As for the bug, as mentioned I cannot reproduce this and some testers managed to reliably reproduce it with default UI, suggesting a Zenimax UI bug, but I am looking into it again to see if we can track this down. I thought it was fixed on Zeni's end as Neither myself or My Wife have been able to reproduce it at all, but the bug reports here are suggesting otherwise obviously.

I can tell you how to reproduce it actually! This happens ONLY when both you and your group members die and resurrect at a wayshrine and/or a castle in Cyrodiil. For example it happens to me when dying in Cyro or DSA only as these are the times the "group wipes" and revives somewhere. I believe it's related to someone resurrecting while you are loading in due to yourself resurrecting etc. Basically, if you want to reproduce it try to grab a few people and die and resurrect together it should happen. If this is fixed I will love ggFrames forever, I absolutely love the addon but have had to switch when I'm in Cyrodiil as I can't be the healer and not know my group memebrs health.

If you need any further help I'm happy to try anything as I experience it constantly every day. ^^
Been running in Cyrodiil with the default group frames since launch and at least since update 5 I'm confident that the default group frames show correctly when someone is dead vs. rezzed. After using ggFrames group frames I'm super spoiled and cannot imagine going back to default, but the update issue is a pain in the butt xD. Reload-ui always corrects it though. Happy to be a tester for you if needed.
