This add-on is pretty badass. I didn't even know that increasing the tab targetting distance was even possible.

Awesome, I love being able to tweak the tab distance.
What is "tab radius" though?
I'm guessing that the radius is "width" in which the tab target feature will pick up a target. By default, as anyone knows, it's rather small and you pretty much have to be directly pointing to your target to pick it up with tab.

How does this work?
oTweaks allows you to change the distance in which tab target picks up enemies as well as the radius in which it picks up enemies.
Maybe I'm not doing it right, but I set the tab distance and radius to 50 (the maximum) and I still can't tab target mobs 41 yards away. I'm a hunter with hawk eye (41 yard shooting range) and I'm testing this by targetting a mob at maximum distance, losing my target, then trying to retarget it with tab, which doesn't work.
The tab targeting looks for targets in two ways, a cone in the direction you char is facing and in a smaller radius around your char. Distance refers to the length of the cone and Radius to the radius ;)
Blizzard most likely did it this way because you are general facing the guy you want to target, increasing the radius to much and you might end up targeting the guy 20 yards behind you and not the guy 35 yards in front of you that you really want to target.
Though I have not tested the mod allot and targets in "the cone area" might get higher priority even though some one is closer to you in "the radius area"
By all that rambling I wanted to say, be carfull how you set the radius you might get some unexpected results.
