oUF Asym UI - Widescreen  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.5
by: Dawn [More]

Main purpose of creating this UI was to create a lightweight interface that runs on my shitty PC, without losing to much utility and without looking like crap.
The name simply comes from my oUF layout. This UI is build around it.

The UI basically doesn't need a setup ingame, since version 1.9. All custom settings can be done by lua.

oUF_Asym UI is made to work for 1440x900, it works out of the box for 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, ... should work for all widescreen resolutions.

It comes with A LOT of different bartextures and fonts, see oUF_Asym fonts/texture folder and dArt folder.
There is also some nice art to play around with located in dArt/Art.


I don't use any UI scale at all. I don't have this option checked. Or in other words this UI is basically build around an UI scale of 1.0.
If you are using another resolution as 1440x900, you might have to adjust your UI scale until it fits.

- no setup, works out of the box for every (new) character
- very lightweight, it uses around 970kb of memory, around 1MB in raids
- a clean interface without glitches (even in combat)
- a lot of options to change the look of frameborders, textures...
- a lot of fun while playing .... hopefully
- last but not least, pretty decent support ... i'm trying, really! *cough*

1.) Pretty much any addon included in this UI is heavily customized, I don't take any credits for this.
However, you shouldn't update any of the addons, manually!
2.) If something spits out errors or stops working, tell me please.
3.) I will only support this to the point where it comes to bug fixing. If you want to customize it, you are on your own.
4.) Read the changelog, it contains usefull information!


1.) backup you font, interface and wtf folder
2.) Extract everything into your \WorldofWarcraft\ folder
3.) Make sure you rename YOURACCOUNTNAME to ... guess what ...

This and That:
* Blizzards Calendar is accessible by right clicking on the minimap
* Tracking is accessible by middle clicking on the minimap
* Chat frames minimize after 20seconds of inactivity - you can change the duration in Chicchai
* You can move all bag frames by holding ALT.
* to open a GM ticket type /GM or /ticket
* to reload your UI type /rl

Some addons that you can customize easily are:



*chatframe (minimize/maximize effect, borders, background)

*dFader (handles fade out of frames, when you are out of combat or without a target selected)

*!LynColors (handles all kind of colors,... class colors, mana color, health color, ...)

*dMinimap (Minimap addon, you can choose between round or square shape, change the borders, color, position, ....)

Known issues:
1.) FogBG is used to display animated *.m2 files for the minimap. Some instances display *.m2 files different, there might be some glitches. It's still ok for my taste, since it doesn't happen that often. If you don't care for those fog animations at all, simply delete FogBG from your addon folder.
2.) Quality ID doesn't like "bound to account" items, it spits out an lua error while trying to show their itemLvl.

I don't use any UI scale at all. I don't have this option checked. Or in other words this is basically build around UI scale 1.0.

I realize I should have said this somewhere on the addon info page. I'll add this, thanks for pointing it out.

Regarding the chat panels... they are set up for "nobarlayout", if you choose "barlayout2" they will overlap the actionbutton pannel in the middle. Simply unlock the chat frames and resize them a little.

Your interface looks really good and I tried it out this evening. I have a few issues with it. I copied over your WTF and Addon folder and renamed all needed folders to the correct names. When I log in and set my resolution to 1440 X 900 everything is really big and not lined up properly. What do you have your UI Scale slider set to? Do you not use it at all? When I set it to a setting that makes my screen look similar to your screenshots then the dominoes/kgpanel button panel is off center and slightly to the right of the left chat window. Any ideas on how to fix this would be great, I would love to give this setup a shot, looks great. Thank you
