i think it has something to do with the new frame option but im not 100% shure i was in a BG and i exited it then turned the frame from standard to none and it seemed to of stoped then i turned the frames back onto standard and it still seems to be ok thier is deff a bugg somewhere tho lol ill should back another update if things change again lol :)
seems to happen only on login once i do what i decribed above with the reset to the new frames option "turn off to none then back onto what i had it set to" and it fixes it for the duration of your game till next relog
please fix annoying bug asap lol :)
btw i never said this befor this addon rocks so much i have seen 2 other nameplate addons out there... one died b4 2.0 and the other one lacks the custimaztion or this one and its about time an ace2 one was created :)
any possibility of clicktocast working with the name plates ever? or the possibility of mobinfo 2 info for mobs on nameplates instead of mobhealth
I have the problem too, i configured the text to overlap the bar by only a few pixels, and then i see that the text on some of the nameplates falls between the bar and the background (z-order) every now and then.
im haveing nameplate issues with most current version on ace2 Aloft-r32771..... sees like info is missing from time to time when plates are refreshed ie friends data shows name level etc.. but NPC will be missing of plate.... or viseversa it almost looks like the level changes from HIGH to BACKGROUND and the data is behind the plate?
i can post screeners if need be
I think I understand what you're saying.. will look into it - if you have a screenie, that'll help.
I've committed some code that fixes the Z-order problems on the most part. The difficult part about it is that WoW doesn't allow changing the frame level of the nameplate during combat - so if the nameplates are first captured while in combat, they will look wrong until shown out of combat - then they'll work fine after. I'm not particularly happy with this solution, but it's the only solution that I have at the moment. Grab r32840 or later.
issues are fixed in latest release except a new one has came up ... ive been uesing SCT for anchoring enemy and party heals to the namepletes and now im getting this error from sct
007/04/16 20:55:31-1049-x6]: SCT-5.5\sct_unitpos.lua:53: attempt to call method 'GetText' (a nil value)

any possibility for a fix for SCT to work nicely....
If you want to optimize SCT's nameplates (and also make them more reliable) add the following lines to the end of sct_unitpos.lua:
if Aloft then
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("SCT:Nameplates via Aloft")
function SCT:EnableNameplate() end
function SCT:DisableNamepalte() end
local nameplate = Aloft:GetNameplate(target)
return nameplate and nameplate.healthBar
For those updating, you will probably need to set your guild text options again to make them show properly; a number of internal changes/improvements have meant that the old settings won't correctly kick in until it's reselected.
