Comics UI

Version: V2
by: Tellat [More]

ComicsUI V1

Included addons are the newest versions from WowInterface/WowAce and Curse. The Authors of the Addons have made playing the game so much more enjoyable with the level of customization afforded by Blizzard and the intellegence of the Authors, who own the rights to saif Addons... Thank You All!

Created in (1920x1080 in full Marvel and DC Comics Ink)

Description:

Old School UI - Ya have to work to install it : )

I was inspired by two different UIs one was call Comic and the other was SuperVillian, thank you folks for creating those UIs. (Mungluch where are ye?)

Fizzlemizz brought a couple of the Discord Mods back to life and it was great fun to be in the bowels of UI customization. Discord Art and Discord Unit Frames are alive and kicking, if you havent checked them out, you should.

I primarilly Solo PVE but I did make sure that Grid2 is in there... trying my hand as a Priest, instead of playing Hunters and Wattiors.

Wow just lends itself to comic book formats, so that is why I ran with this layout.

Installation:

Step 1: Backup the following folders in your main "World of Warcraft" directory (Interface, WTF) and rename them (Interface2, WTF2). You were warned in case Galactus, Fin Fang Foom or Sinestro (yes I know the characters are from Marvel and DC <G>). shows up and eats your Interface, You Have Been Warned!

Step 2: Copy the included folders from the extracted "ComicsUI.zip" file and place them into your main "World of Warcraft" directory.

Step 3: Click into your new "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account" folder and find the folder named "Your Account Name Goes Here" and rename that to be your account name (not your Battle.net account name) in all capital letters.

Step 4: Click into your newly renamed folder, previously "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\Your Account Name Goes Here", and inside you should find a new folder named "Your Server Name Goes Here". Rename that folder with the exact name of the server of your main account (you can also make duplicates of this folder and name them appropriately for additional servers that you may use).

Step 5: Click one last time into your newest renamed folder, previously "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\Your Account Name Goes Here\Your Server Name Goes Here", and inside you should find a new folder named "Your Character Name Goes Here". Rename that folder with the exact name of your primary character on that server (you can also make duplicates of this folder and name them appropriately for additional characters that you may use on that server).

Step 6: Log into your character.

Step 7: Now the Work Begins, remember to check Load Out of Date AddOns.

The UI will look like a jumbled mess of rubble after a Hulk rampage.

So lets setup the artwork and the unit frames:

Type /DART in the Edit Chatbox, at the bottom click on Misc Options and select the comicsui profile, now the background artwork will load up.

Type /DUF in the Edit Chatbox, at the bottom click on Misc Options and select the comicsui profile, now the unit frames will be loaded.

So lets setup the other stuff:

Type /MBF in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui
Type /Grid in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select Absinthe
Type /SLDT Global in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui
Type /omen in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui
Type /prat in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui
Type /quartz in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui
Type /bt in the Edit Chatbox, in the window look for profiles and select comicsui

So as you can see there is one profile to select comicsui, there may be a few items I left off the list but heck this was a very late night project. Also some of you may wonder why I didn't use Reflux... I think its a great addon and I have seen it used with success, I however had less than stellar results.

*Notes:
-All addons were downloaded from either WowInterface or WowAce, if yours becomes out-of-date and this UI compilation isn't updated fast enough for you. Just beware that if you overwrite DART and DUF without having a backup for the CUSTOM TEXTURES and CUSTOM FONTS of both your UI will be lost in space

Updated Addons - Grid, Auctionator, Discord Unit Frames, Discord Art and others.

Moved Textures and Fonts to their own folder within AddOns, so that DUF and Dart can be updated without losing everything.

Added viewport script shown on Discord Art Page to rightbuttonbar onload so we have a smaller chance of being jumped.

Addendum

Also with the move to new folders for the textures and the fonts now DUF and DART can be updated without blowing out the interface.
