Thanks everybody for your replies. I will try work it out today according to your tips.

I will be honest - I am trying to edit Aloft addon for TBC (2.4.3) game version, so it works like TidyPlates. It's a tank addon which helps you to see which NPC targets you or not. TidyPlates backport for TBC would be ideal, however it's much more complicated addon than aloft so I am afraid I won't be able to backport it with my current LUA knowledge.

Yeah I know, you think I am a private server pirate - but I have Battle For Azeroth purchased and had 60 days of gameplay while I managed to play only 2hrs and got bored. There are several upcoming TBC servers and I am just find it 100x more fun to play there than on retail.

Back to the point - please see attached Aloft addon with my changes. In file CoreModules\HealthBar.lua, line 260 I made my edits (if I managed to do it here I would also do elsewhere). It works the way I wanted - on health change it changes colour if mob is targeting me, if someone else attacks it it changes colour to yellow.

However it gets bugged with more than 1 mob and also if someone heals me and overaggroes (NPC health is not chaged).

This addon would make a tank's like so much easier. Not to mention TidyPlates which is all the way great addon (including PvP arena plays). Any idea where to request an addon backport?
