The original author doesn't play WoW anymore and small updates and features would be pretty nice to have... ie.:
1. Tooltip Docking
2. Tooltip Fading
3. Tooltip stays on screen
4. Working MonkeyQuest support
5. Buffs / Debuffs shown
6. Target of Target shown
Thats one addon I really missed being Ace'd, is a good tooltip addon. I know, I know, people are probably going to mention InformaTips and ReacTips, but those addons seemed to have pretty much halted on development, and according to Ace Trac Infortips hasn't been updated in 6 months.
Those were good tooltip addons in their day, but for me they didn't include alot of the things I wanted displayed, and many things I could care less about.
What I would really like to see is something like TipBuddy aced. Thats currently what I use, but I admit it has its share of bloat. Its one of my biggest addons according to !Warmup, which I really hate seeing in something as simple as a tooltip addon.
However, i really haven't found a good replacement for it yet, so I've been pretty much stuck using it for what seems like forever now. Hopefully a new and updated AceTip addon will emerge one of these days ;)
it's worked perfectly forever but the author has made updates when necessary.
very very very small tooltip addon. with AFTT i used to get ui mem increase in the 100's of KB/sec when the tt was displayed. other tooltip addons had wayyyyyyyyyyy too much bloat in them like pictures or pvp icons or rank icons or class icons whatever. i rly dont need any of that cuz its shown in my unitframes already.
I know many people here like GoodTip. I just tried that, must say it is really fast andmemory friendly!...
BUT....one thing it is missing that forced me to switch back to AFTT....
You know, class colors (mages - blue, priests - white etc...); And some sort of guild name color highlighting! I really miss that sort of things! Maybe anyone can add this to Gtip? Or create new type of addon with that feature?
see, AFTT is the most user-friendly tooltip addon atm:
For what its worth, I use a poorly coded custom tooltip handler that does the follow:
* When mousing over a unit, it adds the Guild name in gold at the bottom of the tooltip
* The tooltip will always anchor in a smart manner to the frame that generated the tooltip
* It keeps the tooltip on the screen with smart anchoring
* During combat UNIT tooltips won't show up, so you can click as needed during heavy combat.
Its served me quite well since release, one of the first things I coded. Doesn't have colors, but *shrug*:
One thing I always miss is the tooltip target feature you get with Tipbuddy. Its been so long since I have given any other tooltip mods a chance maybe that is more common now. I love (especially in PvP) mouseing over someone and being able to tell who they have targeted so I can get them shielded and ready to heal :)
Also not a necessity, but I like how Tipbuddy colors the guild and tooltip background a separate color when you mouse over one of your guildmates as opposed to some random joe.
