Version: 0.7.4

Compatible with Rift 3.0/Nightmare Tide!


I was inspired by WoW addons like "TB Reputation Watcher", which automatically show a bar of the faction you just get reputation or notoriety for and automatically changes to another faction, when you gain reputation/notoriety for this faction.
And so AutoFactionBar will do: It shows a bar with the current faction you gained reputation.
Supports German, English and French language.

  1. When you are logged in to your character a dark-gray/black bar appears in the middle of the screen.
  2. By right-clicking on the bar you get a small button at the left top corner of the bar and the bar changes its color to blue.
    You can drag&drop this button by holding down the left mouse button - the bar will move also.
    Alternatively you can type "/afb toggle" to toggle between a locked and a movable bar.
  3. Once again by right-clicking on the bar or the button you lock the bar.
  4. With "/afb config" you can open a config dialog where you can edit all settings from above.
    Or you just middle-click on the bar for the same effect.
  5. By typing "/afb reset" you can reset the size, position and colors back to default.
  • /afb toggle - Toggles between locked and movable bar.
  • /afb reset - Resets the position and the size of the bar back to default.
  • /afb config - Opens a config dialog.
  • /afb - Shows this help.

Known issues / bugs:
  • performance warning when right-clicking the bar (I still couldn't reproduce this error by myself, so I'll need your help/feedback.)
    see Bug ID 55 for details
    hopefully fixed with v0.7.1

  • make align of text on bar configurable: left, center, right
0.7.4 (2014-08-20)
  • fixed the issue "An axis with a set size cannot have more than one unique set point." when resetting config back to default

0.7.3 (2014-08-11)
  • the thousands separator now depends on the language
    • german and french: . (dot)
    • english or any other: , (comma)
  • config dialog is movable now
    • position is saved between sessions
    • position will be reset with "/afb reset" command

0.7.2 (2014-08-10)
  • fixed an issue when opening the config dialog while having any of the rgb-values not set to 0 or 1
  • removed the console commands for fontcolor, fontsize, barcolor, bordercolor, height, width
    • only the following commands will remain: /afb, /afb config, /afb toggle, /afb reset
    • configuration is done in config dialog
  • implemented an option for hiding the background of the bar
  • implemented an option for showing thousands separators in numbers (e.g. 12,345 instead of 12345)
  • updated TOC for Rift 2.8
  • updated readme: documentation of usage

0.7.1 (2014-08-03)
  • hopefully again fixed a performance issue, e.g. when right-clicking the bar (the issue was caused by the garbage collector)

0.7.0 (2014-07-29)
  • the mouseover tooltip now shows the notoriety gained in current session (e.g. +250)
  • added french translation (google translation, so there might be mistakes)
  • updated TOC for Rift 2.7

0.6.2 (2014-01-17)
  • optimized the interpretation of console commands, so hopefully no performance warnings will occur anymore
  • optimized the output of the help/usage
  • documented the already existing command-line parameter "config" in the help/usage for opening the config dialog:
    "/afb config" (a middle-click on the bar will still work, too)

0.6.1 (2014-01-09)
  • no new features or bugfixing, just updated declaration of event handlers, that where introduced in patch 2.5 - so updating is optional

0.6.0 (2013-06-11)
  • update for patch 2.3:
    • implemented new notoriety level "venerated" up to 90000 (Torvan and Lycini)

0.5.3 (2013-05-30) (not published)
  • fixed issue when no valid number is given in command-line for barcolor, bordercolor, fontcolor

0.5.2 (2013-04-26) (not published)
  • transparency can be set in options dialog (not possible in command-line)

0.5.1 (2013-04-20)
  • the config dialog will show a slight defiant or guardian symbol as a background image depending on the player's alliance (only a gimmick)
  • now the fontsize is also changeable (8-20), either in config dialog or with "/afb fontsize nn"
  • fixed a potential issue with some global variables conflicting with other addons -> now declared local
  • tooltip now adjusts automatically, when the bar is placed near top or right screen border

0.5 (2013-04-17)
  • a config dialog is implemented now, therefore a bunch of code has been re-arranged or rewritten (especially declaration of variables for not running into LUA restrictions)
  • the config dialog can be opened by typing "/afb config" or by middle-clicking the bar
  • it allows to edit the same settings as it is possible by command-line: barcolor, bordercolor, fontcolor and the width of the bar
  • a preview for the colors shows how the selected color will look like
  • it also allows to reset all settings back to default as "/afb reset" does
  • the height of the bar can be editied now, too; valid values: 10-50
  • changed the anchor point of the bar to TOPLEFT (so your saved position will change a bit)
  • the command "/afb width max" now fills the screen from left screen border to the right screen border
  • changed minimum width of the bar to 200

0.4.1 (2013-04-15)
  • probably fixed the "escape" bug when moving the bar by drag&drop (and also fixed that the bar could not be
    moved to the top of the screen without leaving an empty space above the bar)
  • "/afb reset" now also resets the movable bar back to locked status
  • the usage/help shown with "/afb" is now colored :)
  • now when finished loading at login the following notice is shown: "Type /autofactionbar or /afb for help."

0.4 (2013-04-14)
  • changed status from "beta" to "release"
  • the last faction is now saved between sessions and will be shown again when you login again
    ("/afb reset" will also reset the last faction)
  • now with "/afb width max" the bar will fill the complete width of the screen
  • a new graphic for the button when the bar is movable -> now it's easier to find the right position
  • the mouseover tooltip now shows the faction category and the percentage with one decimal place

0.3.2 beta (2013-04-12)
  • settings (position, width, colors) are now saved for each character instead account-wide (SavedVariables)
    (it's recommended to delete all old SavedVariables in "Saved"-folder named "AutoFactionBar.lua"
  • the background-/bordercolor of the bar can be changed (default is black)
  • the maximum width is now limited to maximum width of the (scaled) UI

0.3.1 beta (2013-04-11)
  • added percentage of current notoriety to mouseover tooltip
  • new default values for position and width of the bar that depend on screen resolution
  • bugfix: text in tooltip disappeared while just gaining notoriety -> tooltip now refreshes correctly
  • fixed some typos in German translation

0.3 beta (2013-04-10)
  • changed status to "beta"
  • cleaned up some code and variables
  • bugfix: when resetting to default (/afb reset) the progressbar disappeared
  • changed the bar from "Texture" to "Frame" -> so the image "img/green.png" is not needed anymore
  • color of the bar and the text can be changed:
    /afb barcolor r g b
    /afb fontcolor r g b
    r, g, b can be 0-255
  • -resetting to default also resets custom colors
  • size, position, barcolor and fontcolor are saved between sessions in SavedVariables
  • this SavedVariables are account-wide
  • changed default position and default width to somewhere in the middle of the screen and so fixed the issue while UI scaling was activated

  • bar can be toggled between locked/movable by right-clicking on it
  • when movable it can be moved by drag&drop
  • size of the bar can be altered
