currently using ct_unitframes to display my health, my target's health, and percentages.
its buggy as fook though.. and id love to get rid of the whole thing asap. as its the last part of CT that i'm actively using.
what kind of alternatives are there?
i know,, perl, perl classic,, but tried those, and they're a pita to setup.
also, a lightweight ace2 mod would be great for it,, as perl also adds more stuff than just values and percentages.
mobhealth, also does more than i need, but also less..
He's looking for player/party frames, not raid frames, I think.
I'm assuming you want something similar to the default UI, with numbers flying out the sides? Like the poster above said, Archaeologist does that. It's not Ace, but I don't really see how badly you could screw something like that up ^^.
Archaelogist simply modifies the blizzard party frames to show health and some different numbers of buffs. It requires Mobhealth or Mobinfo to function on player/npc target frames. It also may or may not still requier the use of one or more annoying Cosmos libraries.
I'd recommend trying MobHealth3_BlizzardFrames and/or Percent to see if they meet your needs first.
