The UI that wouldn’t go away.

They followed me home, I swear. There I was, minding my own business, when I turn around and find three eensy-teensy sad little add-ons trailing behind me. Look for a home. It was heart-rending, I tell you. There’s nothing sadder than a neglected add-on. What else could I do? Like I said, they are very small, but also very good at what they do. AutoProfit AutoProfit adds a little button to the top right corner of the window you get when you click on a trash vendor. Click on that button and you sell that vendor ALL your grays, instead …

Last UI post of the series, I swear.

So after looking more at the screenies I put up, I realized that in last night’s excitement, I didn’t really show what I meant by “more screen estate”. What I meant was that in the first of the three, there were bars every which way I looked, whether or not I was in combat. There will be stuff that pops up with combat, of course, that’s a good thing. And there will be more stuff popping up in raids, because there’s more information to keep track of. The second screenie illustrated that well enough, with the raid unit frames and …

Another UI Post, Redux.

As promised earlier, I have finished fiddling around with my UI this afternoon and took it for a test run through Naxx 25 tonight. It’s going to take a bit getting used to, because I moved around a lot of things and there are new functionalities, but on the whole I’m very pleased with it. It streamlines a lot of the things that bugged me about my old UI, and makes the whole thing look more aesthetic and unified. After comparing the two screenshots, I’m convinced that I’ve kept the same amount of screen estate if not gained slightly more. …

Another UI Post.

It’s been half a year since my last UI Post and many things have changed since then. A new expansion has come out. Old addons have died, many more have proliferated. My computer was fixed and has an actual working graphics card! I’ve been mentioning some of the addons I use in guild chat, but figured it was probably time for a more comprehensive link list. Below is my hunter’s current UI setup. During my weekly round of updates this morning, I also picked up a new stack of toys I’m going to be testing out on my druid before …

How To: Scrolling Combat Text Warnings for Lock and Load

I’m not gonna bother making a guide, because plenty of people have made very fine ones for us already. If you are using Scrolling Combat Text, please check out Lienna’s guide. If you are using Mik’s Scrolling Battle Text, please check out the Warcraft Hunters Union guide. If you haven’t decided which one you’re going to use yet, I’d suggest trying the second one (Mik’s) because it’s been updated most recently and is just one big addon, as opposed to several smaller ones linked together. At least, that’s the reason I use that one. Lots of people like SCT, though, …

The UI post.

At some point, I suppose everybody who plays regularly starts collecting addons. I’m always interested to see how other people organize their windows, so figure it’s time to share mine as well. I mostly use the “big names” since they’re more likely to be compatible with the majority of people I group with and I know they’re tried and tested favorites for a reason. Below is a screenshot of my hunter’s typical setup, which has stayed pretty much the same for half a year now (click on picture for the big version). Altoholic is the little round button with the …
