Prankstars Elegant UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.8
by: Prankstar [More]


Prankstars
Elegant UI
Version 3


Improved default World of Warcraft Interface

With the release of Battle for Azeroth, I have also chosen to "go back to one's root". Meaning that the design of the UI will change and move back to a default WoW look.
But even though it's like default, it has various improvements - such as pixel perfect artwork, aligned artwork, bigger unit frames etc.

Consider Prankstars Elegant UI an improved default UI. But the layout is still the same as before, but no more Legion or Iron Horde artwork. Instead you can have the default look, or switch to a darkened look (almost black).

Contact me here, or on Reddit, for help or questions.

See more detailed images



How to install
  1. Browse to your World of Warcraft folder and backup your WTF & Interface folders
  2. After the backup, disable all addons (and then re enable as you need) OR delete the old WTF & Interface folders. This makes sure you don't have any other conflicting addons (such as bartender).
  3. Extract the WTF & Interface folders from PrankUI3.zip
  4. Copy Config.wtf from your old WTF folder into the new WTF folder
  5. Rename [RENAME TO ACCOUNT NAME] to whatever your account name is. You can find your account name from the old WTF folder
  6. Launch World of Warcraft and in your character screen, hit the button "Addons" in the lower left corner, and make sure all addons are enabled (even the outdated ones!)
  7. Login to a character and type "/prankui" (without the quotes) in chat to finalize the UI
  8. You're now ready to play. Type "/prankui" again to change layout if you want



How to use
  • You can easily add more actionbar buttons to the right of the screen if needed
  • Pr. default Skada isn't shown when solo, but you can toggle it on easily
  • The Bag bar and Micro menu is hidden until hovered over the corresponding buttons next to the main action bar.




FAQ
  • I can't find my Account name
    • It should either be a name, random set of numbers or "Wow1"
    • Default folder path: (C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account)
  • How do i make changes to the UI?
    • Just as you normally would. My setup addon only set some profiles in other addons.
    • If you want to make sure that your changes are shared across all your toons, you can make the changes directly in the "PrankUI" and "Default" profiles, and then when you use "/prankui" on new characters, they will inherit your changes.
  • Is this UI only for Warlocks?
    • No! This UI is for all characters
  • Can i use something else than Skada for damage meters?
    • Yes you can! But having the artwork to follow over requires some knowledge with kgPanels and simple LUA scripting

The click button to hide and show the extra action bars look to me in my extremely limited knoweldge that they are only coded to show bar 4 of bartender when i read the kgpanels config scripts, how do i enable this to show both bar 3 and bar 4?

For reference: Extra toggle on script for OnLoad:

Lua Code:
  1. local bt = BT4Bar4;
  2.  
  3. if bt == nil then
  4.     self:Show();
  5.     self:SetAlpha(0);
  6. else
  7.     self:Hide();
  8. end

and On Click:

Lua Code:
  1. local inCombat = UnitAffectingCombat("player");
  2.  
  3. if inCombat == false then
  4.     Bartender4:GetModule("ActionBars"):EnableBar(4);
  5.     self:Hide();
  6. end

I tried changing stuff to bar 3 just to see if i could work it out myself but have had no success at all and i know nothing about these things. Spent close to 4 hours trying to solve this to no success.

Just want to have both of the bars instead of just bar 4.

quick dirty LUA:
Lua Code:
  1. local bt1 = BT4Bar4;
  2. local bt2 = BT4Bar3;
  3.  
  4. if bt1 == nil then
  5.     self:Show();
  6.     self:SetAlpha(0);
  7. else
  8.     self:Hide();
  9. end
  10. if bt2 == nil then
  11.     self:Show();
  12.     self:SetAlpha(0);
  13. else
  14.     self:Hide();
  15. end


Lua Code:
  1. local inCombat = UnitAffectingCombat("player");
  2.  
  3. if inCombat == false then
  4.     Bartender4:GetModule("ActionBars"):EnableBar(4);
  5.     Bartender4:GetModule("ActionBars"):EnableBar(3);
  6.     self:Hide();
  7. end

But keep in mind that the artwork dosn't support two. I use "Ctrl + Scroll" to change main action bar for more action bars instead if i need more than whats available.

Hope it helps

My appologies it seems to be bartender that is the issue
It does look like that you havn't done the setup, as no one of the profiles has been set at all. Tried doing the /prankui setup?
Yes i have that image is after doing the /prankui setup
Then it seems that step 3-4 is not done properly then. As choosing a layout should setup profiles. If nothing happens from hitting one of those, means the profiles are not loaded in, which makes me think that the wtf folder has not been imported correctly.

No idea mate. Must be an issue at KUI's end, so i don't know. You should go give them a ticket, if theres a bug.

Weird. Seems like SUF might have had an error, and somehow wiped their own config file which is holding my profile and it's settings.

To fix, simply navigate to:
Code:
Prankstars Elegant UI.zip\WTF\Account\[PUT YOUR ACCOUNT NAME HERE]\savedvariables
And copy the
Code:
ShadowedUnitFrames.lua
file to the savedvariables folder in your WoW Directory Then the profile should be back.

Again, why it happenend i have no idea - as i did not make the SUF addon, and it just honestly seems like it had an error.

Did you update all the addons through Curse client? The .zip folder might have a lot of un-updated addons that could be causing this.

Not that hardcore LUA scripter, so i have a hard time seeing the exact issue :/
Looks like it's looking for something that isn't set. Made sure that all addons are enabled (also all thats not up to date?)
