    Hey guys is there any way to change the addon font?

    Love to have the same font that the game uses

    Also would be nice to have the crits bold and larger

    Agreed.

    Also, Is it possible to move the damage meter and stat box? Seem stuck in top left corner for me.

    First of all, @Atropos thanks for your work on this add-on. The care and thought you put into it is obvious. I have a request that I'd like you to consider, if you haven't already. I'd like the option to toggle off/on frames, etc., when I press "V" to switch views. I love the data output and interface when I'm in third person view, which is typically during combat. When I explore, I tend to go first person and seeing the frames/additional interface takes me out of the zone, so to speak. Is there a keyboard shortcut that could be bound to the "Enable Frames" option? Thanks again!

    The Tactical Combat addon is out of date. Any ETA on fixing it?

    Also, is it true that the addon recognizes the activation of buffs / debuffs but not the cancelation of them? Are there any bugs in the buff / debuff department of things that are known?

    I'm looking for a way to turn off the target. I'm still showing the default target frame for health etc.

    thanks.

    Same. I actually stopped using the Unit frames for FTC and just use it for scrolling text and buffs. The double target bar on the screen was bothering me since there is no way (that I see) to turn off either the default target frame or the FTC target frame. It's redundant and an extra something on my screen that isn't needed. I started using the ZAM unit frames instead. If FTC adds the option to remove the target bar then I would definitely go back to using it for that (I like how the FTC unit frames have reduced opacity, something ZAM does not)! Still though, I love the FTC scroll text and long-term/short-term buffs. I tried using other add-ons for buffs (like ZAM) and they just didn't do it for me.

    @Atropos, will this option be added possibly in the future? Please and thank you for your hard work!

    i found out a way to turn off the default target bar but i am working with the author to fix the party ui first, http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info228-ReticleSettingsCustomCrosshair.html#info

    You can use this addon to turn off the default target frame & once the server is up, i am working with the addon dev to fix the party ui not showing when default frame is removed.

    Next version of FTC will have an option for disabling the default target frame.

    Is there a proper place to report bugs for FTC? I love the bloody thing, but

    it doesn't seem to track some debuffs well like the DK fire breath, if I have the passive that increases duration FTC still only shows the old value

    Also even if you fail to apply a debuff because the target is immune / etc. it still shows up in the debuff list.

    It would also be nice to be able to set the opacity for some of the bars to 100% all the time.

    since updating FTC today  I can no longer see indicator bars above any player/NPCs head while FTC is enabled.  Typicially when you scroll your crosshairs/cursor over someone their name/title and rank as well as a healthbar appears, now i get nothing when FTC is on.  I have uninstalled all my addons and re installed FTC multiple times.  even when running it by itself i still have this issue. but i can use all of my other addons without FTC and things are fine.  please resolve the issue so i dont have to switch to an alternative.  i love having my health/stam/magika bars all together.  if you need any more information from me my in game name is @ElmoHatesMe.

    I should have an update to FTC posted in the next few days, hopefully it will resolve some of the issues people have been experiencing. Please get back to me after that update and let me know!

    Just curious - when you are holding down block and cast a spell... your block icon doesn't disappear.  Doesn't your character actually stop blocking for that split second that you are casting even if you hold block the whole time?

    Possibly, but for "instant" cast spells you can hold block and cast at the same time. It's pretty overpowered, which contributes to many of the balance issues related to people running around Pulsar / Dark Talons spamming. They can use their magicka for AoE damage abilities, while holding block the entire time making them immune to most CC and giving massive damage reduction.

    I'm not sure if this is intended by ZOS, but it has a huge impact on game balance.

    OK I wasn't sure if FTC was bugged (i.e. your block did go down during instant casts and FTC just didn't show it).

     

    I absolutely hate that you can cast and block at the same time, it goes against everything you've learned to do in video games.  I'm all for adapting but this is just unnatural and, as you said, unbalanced.

    I love this addon so far. I don't see a proper feature request system, so I'd like to post a couple of my druthers here.

    1. Pet Health Bar: Appears when I have a pet active, shows at a minimum their health, and disappears when they die or I lose them for whatever reason.
    2. Opacity control for the unit frames: The current opacity is not to my liking. I'm used to frame opacity representing the range validation on a target, which would be a nice feature for this addon.
    3. Bars Option for Buffs/Debuffs: Instead of icons, a stack of bars each for Buffs and Debuffs. Each stack would be positioned/attached independently and could be set to grow upward or downward.

    I understand that there are other addons which provide some of the above features, and separating configurability from scope creep is a common issue with 'all-in-one' addons. But it's nice not to have to monitor a lot of separate addons' bugs, updates, overlap, not playing nicely with each other etc.; so having more flexibility with your current features would be very convenient.

    Thanks for your work so far.

    Not sure if this is the place to post this, but what the heck.

    Is there a way to have the Low health, Target low health, low stam, low magicka etc announcements still appear but without the rest of the scrolling text? I find scrolling text useful in some situations, but for general gameplay it's too much of a clutter.

    Thanks for your wonderful work anyways.

    I downloaded v0.30 today, wanting to give it another shot as I'd like a bit more feedback about my combat performance. Had to uninstall it again because the bars for my character's stats don't show up, not matter what setting I use. I can only see the numerical values.
