Ever since TipBuddy lost its developer no one has picked up support for a full feature tooltip mod with the power TipBuddy had. I know there is an Ace1.0 tooltip mod, TinyTip, and I am currently using that but it just isn't near as customizable as TipBuddy was. It would be great if one of the awesome Ace2 coders would snatch TipBuddy up, convert it over to Ace2 and offer some continuing support for it.
I've actually been using the SVN tinytip, though I hadn't realized it was Ace2 already. Still, if you look at the customization options in TipBuddy, TinyTip just pales in comparison. It's not that I'm not pleased with TinyTip, I just really want to see something that is as powerful as TipBuddy was.
the color options is what im most interested in actually. it made it real easy for me to see in my peripheral vision what class the enemy was because I had the background custom to each class. this added to tinytip would rule, or even doing like AF Extreme Tooltip and adding a small (independantly scalable) class icon to the left side of the tooltip would be perfect.
i guess now that you mention it, i would just like to see those two features added to tinytip and i'd be set!
Things I don't like about TinyTip, compared to Tipbuddy:
- I cannot anchor the tooltip the way I want to, which is having the topright of my tooltip anchored to the cursor, and not the center like TT forces me to
- I do not need race and class coloring, so I would like to turn them OFF
- I do not need that health bar, so again, I would like to turn it OFF
I think I know anough about LUA to make these modifications myself (as in, remove/change the bits to suit me, not code the toggling and such), but I'd rather not have to aply my personal patches to the code every time it gets updated.
