Hey i am starting to play again and i am looking for an combat target addon i want to use on cata 4.3.4 AT realm. What i want from addon like this is to track my target and shows me where it is relative to my position. Something like an minimap target/focus mark but i want it as a hud. Simple rotaring arrow would be good too (something like that quest tracking arrows). Just anything that will show me where my target is standing relative to me. Even a something that would add an arrow or something to indicate a target ring direction.
I have to play on an old computer with terrible and most of all small lcd i have really troubble seeing where my target is standing (everything is so tiny that its almost impossible to see when some spell effects occur) even a tauren is like a 0,5 or 1cm tall when i have max zoomed in to see some surroundings. I want to play zoomed out to see whats around me but that would result in target like 1mm tall and thats just a dot on a screen which is not possible for me to determine if i am standing behind an enemy or in front or side which results in a huge time loss when i want to stab someone.

If someone knows such addon or can write a simple one i would be really grateful. Thanks for any help.

ps: Sexy map has something simillar to this as a tracking hud but its not configurable and i would prefer to have a standard blizzard minimap.

Why don't you just use raid marks? They would do exactly what you're asking for here, so the only thing you'd get from making an addon for it is something more visually appealing perhaps.

Thanks for the reply, i dont have a problem to stay in range or guess where the enemy is standing even if its almost impossible to see since i know aproximate area and i know where he is not. I have a problem to see where is the back/front of the enemy since its so tiny. Besides i think that it would annoy other people around if i would be macro switching marks and they take like 1/25 of my screen space.

I am still searching for something like this. Some minimap hud like the sexy map got would be inough but i need to be able to disable some parts of it and i dont like the fact that if i enable that sexymap hud i dont have a regular minimap.

Vuhdo has an arrow that shows what direction a player is relative to you, and whether or not they're within a range you can specify. I don't know if it still does this or if it works in arenas, but when I used to heal in PVE that was a handy thing.

Thank you for a suggestion. Havent got a time to test it sooner but i just did and it looks like it only shows friendly players which does not help me at all. Anyway thanks again.

Enemy players are shown by nameplates. Again, no need for an addon unless you want something more visually appealing.

Nameplates cannot tell me his orientation and since its like a dot on that small monitor its very hard to see if i am facing his back. Sometimes even impossible.

Not much help, but DBM has something like this that shows up in some boss encounters -- for example in the mop brewery dungeon on the last boss to help people avoid hitting each other with Bloat.  You can probably find the code for that somewhere, but would require a lot of reworking to make it into an arena addon.
