Viewport Bug

Hi - when taking portal to secret mythic phase on N'Zoth or after porting there after defeating him on Normal/Heroic difficulty, the viewport seems to disable mechanically, character/center of screen shifts down, however the black bar is still visible. Obviously causes issues with how the UI is displayed.

Confirmed that the viewport breaks when cutscenes are shown.  However, since the viewport cannot be changed during combat, the only way to fix that is to remove the resize screen button.  In 8.3.12.alpha.x, the resize screen button has been removed.  Thanks for the report.

Hi - without the resize button doesn't this kind of defeat the purpose of the viewport. Maybe it is just not functioning currently, but with the Alpha build the viewport really doesn't take effect due to the lack of the resize screen button.

Maybe the option will have to be renamed to borders since you're right - technically, it's no longer a viewport, just a series of borders.


Prior to 8.3.0, Wow positioned WorldFrame on startup then never touched it again.  So all Leatrix Plus did (with the resize button) was position WorldFrame again just after Wow positioned it.  But this happened during startup so if you were in combat, it didn't matter because Blizzard allow WorldFrame to be positioned during startup.


In 8.3.0, Wow still positions WorldFrame on startup but it also now positions it every time an in-game cut-scene is shown (not the cinematics that are available in Leatrix Plus, just the cut-scenes that you get in dungeons and quests, etc).  Unlike Blizzard's code, addons cannot position WorldFrame during combat and it's perfectly feasible that you could be in combat when the cinematic is shown so that would break the UI.  If I delay positioning WorldFrame until combat ends, it could still be that WorldFrame gets corrupt when the cinematic is shown and Leatrix Plus wouldn't be able to fix it because addons cannot position WorldFrame during combat.

So what you're saying is  there is no fix for this without Blizzard intervention? That is unfortuante- thank you for looking into this.

imo leave it as an option with a warning that it will cause issues in limited situations. removing the functionally completely just sucks.

Unfortunately this is the main reason for using this add-on. It is the only option I know of for moving UI elements to a 2nd monitor. Please try to find a workaround when Blizzard does updates. Until then i will have to stop using your add-on. I do appreciate all your hard work. Thank you

Vilifix, you can downgrade to version 8.3.11 and continue to use it without difficulty. the only time any issues crop up is if a cinematic starts during combat, and the only time that occurs as of right now is during the alternative mythic phase of Nzoth.
