Recently I was thinking. There is a shitton of addons out there that has a splash screen or other similiar device for showing overhead information (SCT/Spelaler/critline/bosswarning/raidleader etc) All of these addons define a seperate one of these. redudency for the win , NOT in this case.
Therefor overhead. An addon that is a simply a replacement for all of this so addons can use it instead of defining new frames over and over and over again.
I tried to make something like this myself. however my xml knowlidge and lua and more specifily my knolidge of the blizz API made it that i made horribly looking pieces of shit.
I would like to ask someone else if they feel like making this.
If someone is saying. Well i would like to make it but not maintain it i will gladly try to take mainting it up.
I already have several addons in mind that could benifit from this.
In order for this to do anything, I think you would have to patch the AddOns themselves, or maybe you could intercept the frames. I don't know much XML either, so, not quite sure. I can't even finish damn ABInfo Ace'd because XML is so damn boring.
I like the idea, get us a nice lil util that we can use as those mods get Ace'd. Shouldn't be too hard to make one would think. Hell we could probably just rip the error frame from blizz's UI, Ace it and enhance it (make it handle more than 3 lines, etc).
