Slightly Improved Experience Bar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.15
by: L8Knight [More]
The goal of this addon is to gently improve the experience bar without taking too much away from its original design or intent. This slight improvement adds three things to the default experience bar:

Features
  1. Adds actual experience numbers and/or a progress percentage value above the experience bar. The default configuration is to show both.
  2. Prevents the experience bar from automatically hiding after changing back to the normal game view. The transparency value is configurable.
  3. Temporarily shows the amount of experience gained below the experience bar. The duration of this is configurable.

This sounds like you have an addon with an outdated version of LibAddonMenu that's loading before this one, or you have an outdated version of LibAddonMenu installed as a standalone addon. If this addon is the only one enabled do you still see the problem?

Is there any way to make the XP bar in the default position (in middle of the screen) on changing the XP while hiding in normally, and on top left in menu?

I like the numbers, but I don't need XP bar all the time.

Thanks for the SS. There are two config settings that I think will fix this. One is a config setting to show the text below the bar. Can you make sure this is off/disabled? There's also a config setting that will shorten the numbers by three digits and add a "k" value. Can you enable this?

I think I need to reevaluate the config settings and remove some of them that no longer make sense with the new champion xp bar. I think the text will have to always be above the bar and the numbers should almost always be divided by 1,000.

Thanks for the feedback. Can you be more specific? Are you saying the numbers on the bottom are overlapping with the champion point label? If so, there should be an option to shrink the numbers by 1,000 which allows a bit more room.

This sounds like an issue with my outdated version of LibAddonMenu, but I have no way to test because I no longer play ESO. I updated this library in the addon and posted that version here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ceBar-2.14.zip

If you can confirm that this fixes the problem I'll update my addons with this newer version.
Thank you. It does work. keep in mind 1.6 is around corner. thank you tho. best addon. I just always want to see my exp bar, and theres no other addon out there in my opinion that looks better and is accurate. i dont mind the original game bar. xpbarwithbubbles is way outdated. wish eso would just find a way to implement this into norm game options.

Its actually neither, its 1,000,000 for a veteran rank now. That is a bug in the game introduced in update 1.5.3 they discussed it in the 1.5.4 patch notes, see here: 1.5.4 Patch Notes
