LUI v3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.9.12
by: loui, Siku

LUI v3.9.12 - Legion 7.1.5

- For technical support please go to the LUI Website or come on the LUI Discord Server

To access the Twitter integration stuff, either disable the Chat module or type /share

If you are doing a new install and you see that the frames are overlapping, or unaligned, you need to move the frames yourself:
Chat (BottomLeft): Go over it and right click on "General" tab of the chat frame, click Unlock Window and drag the tab around until you have the frame in a position you like.
Omen (MiddleLeft): Type "/omen config" (without quotes) and uncheck Lock Omen, drag it around, once you're done, check Lock Omen again.
Recount (MiddleRight) Type "/recount config" (without quotes) and go to Window and uncheck Lock Window. Move it around, and lock it back up when you're done. You're free to re-enable the Report, File, Config icons if you want.
Raid (BottomRight): Type "/lui", go in Unitframes, and unlock them. Then move the lone raid frame with your name around.

LUI is a World of Warcraft User Interface overhaul dedicated to replace the standard Blizzard UI in a way you cannot imagine.

Main Features of LUI v3:
- Full automatic installation
- Support for all addons
- Support for all resolutions from 1280 pixels in width up to 1920
- Over 200 Textures that will make your WoW look better than ever before.
- Option Panel with more than 3000 possibilities to make your UI unique.

- (Optional) Rename your WTF and Interface folders to keep a backup of your old UI.
- Put the Interface Folder into your WoW Directory
- Start WoW
- Enable all Addons
- Enjoy!

Please use the new and awesome LUI v3 Website if you have any questions or need support in any way regarding LUI.
Visit: LUI Forums

Embedded oUF

Optional Addons found in the Extras folder
SPTimers (replacing the defunct Forte)

Note: If you pick Grid, make sure you go in the lui options, under Frames, then "Raid" and choose Grid from the dropdown menu to have the texture correctly applied.

Thanks to all of you for waiting so long!
I hope you like it!

LUI v3.5.5

LUI v3.5.3

LUI v3.5.2

UI Elements:
- New texture for the infotext bar at the top. This one is much much larger. There should be no differences for people using small resolutions (up to 1680x1050) and should come as a nice feature for people using larger ones (1920x1020) or even have dual/triple monitor setups.
- You can now attach the Raid Texture Panel to Blizzard's default raid frames by using the dropdown menu.

- Vengeance has been updated again.
- Added Firelands Stuff to Raid Debuffs Icons, if you are using the LUI raid frames instead of Grid.
- Fixed a few issues with Health and Power Updates.
- If a boss has an Alternate Power, it will be displayed in place of the power bar. An example would be Onyxia and her Electrical Charge bar.
- Fixed some issues with the Reputation and Experience bars.
- Fixed issues when petframe was disabled.
- Added some more options concerning Party Frame Visibility

- Fixed the faction logo for BattleNet Friends. So now you can tell your friends are being traitors and will be marked with traitorous logos next to their opposite-faction characters.

- Fixed a few comat issues.

- Potentially fixed an error that would appear on extremely rare cases, and would end up disappearing after the ui is reloaded. Written as "potentially" due to the extremely rare and probably unreproducible nature of said error.

Extra Modules:
- There was a screw up in the 3.5.1 release that caused the Interrupt and Merchant module (after following instructions) to still not work. This has been fixed.
- Along the lines, the Merchant module has been rewritten to fixes any errors that caused its exclusion in the first place.
- Some options of the Merchant module (such as the Item Quality) may have been reset as a result of this.
- Meh

LUI v3.5.1

Addon Support:
- Added fix for Recount having huge font unless modified. You no longer need to modify Recount to have LUI's intended font size.
- You can now choose the font size you want for Recount under the options - General > Addons

- Fixed an issue with the unitframes when they were disabled.
- The Player XP and Rep Bar should now come in front of the Health/Mana Text when mouse is hovered.
- Fixed an issue with Unitframes Layouts causing havoc under certain situations
- The Swing Timer and Vengeance Bars have been updated.

- Fixed an issue related to fonts that appeared under certain situations.
- Updated to 4.2's Combat Log Event to fix lag during combat.
- Fixed an issue with the Friends infotext not displaying in 4.2.

- There is a new button on the micromenu for the Encounter Journal, you can find it marked with a skull, next to the dungeon finder button.
- Fixed an issue with the talent point reminder where it wasn't the intended color if you selected to use a white colored micromenu.

- Sorted the options menu so everything should be easier to find, including clicking on the white Module section to easily enable/disable certain modules within LUI

Extra Modules:
- Remove the Merchant extra module from the basic package because it is not handled by anyone on the dev team, and it is causing quite a few errors to many people.
- For LUI to load extra modules, you need to move the Extras.Xml file out of the modules folder (next to the LUI.xml), this was done to prevent your Extras.xml file from being overwritten if you were to update LUI.
- For those who had a working Merchant module and want to continue using them, just move the Extras.xml file out of the modules folder.

LUI v3.5

The LUI Unitframe is now embed with the LUI addon, no more troubles with oUF not being loaded on first install, bugging the whole process. (Somehow, i think someone will still manage it)
The Unitframes have been improved alot in terms of performance, and lots of bugs were fixed.
Options have been added to Import and Export new unitframes setups, as well as being able to switch between various setups without much hassle! Import a layout, or exporting one, may or may not cause severe lag.
Added an Alternative Power Bar, used by Blizzard for many raiding encounters.
Arena Frames were added, which include frames for your opponents, their pets and their targets.
Added Heal Predictions.
BossTarget Frames added, but disabled by default.
New Raid Frames have been added, in case you do not wish to use Grid or similar addons. Take note those are somewhat experimental for now.
Unitframes now uses the same raid icons textures as the nameplates, because those are 20% cooler.


DataText has been improved alot. Efficiency and performance went up to eleven.
Now have two more info text bars. Along with having things in the Top Left and Top Right, you can now have datatexts in the Bottom left and Bottom Right.
Removed most of the UI Reloads required when enabling / disabling things.
Most option changes are now instantaneous.
New entries: Currency, DualSpec and Instance Info datatexts.
Added option to choose if you want infotext to work during combat or not.
Added option to display Home or World Latency in the bar, or both.
Added option to display your combined gold on the server, or just the current toon's gold.
Left-Clicking on the Gold will now switch between server gold and toon gold. Instead of opening the bags.
Fixed the infamous INVITE PENDING issue with the calendar...again. Blame Blizzard for having buggy API, not us.


Fixed some other bugs that prevented the bags or bank from correctly updating.
Added the Sort Button fix.


Blizzard Errors not disabled by default anymore. This should reduce confusion by alot.
Updated the ColorPicker to Ace3, no more Ace2 libraries!
Updated and Improved the AutoAccept Invites function.
Added the Merchant and Hix_Interrupter into the main UI. Mostly because of the cooked version in fact. Their original authors will still have to update them.

There are no lua errors or some other real big issues with LUI v3.024.
Just replace your existing interface folder with the new one and you will be fine.

So if you have any big problems you made a mistake and its not lui.

AND PLEASE stop asking for technical suppurt here on wowinterface. Its just a waste of time, for me and for you.

If you havy any big prroblem with lui at all, pls go to www.wow-lui.com

Please do me that favor.

Thanks for your understanding.

Problems with oUF

I've re-installed this pack multiple times and every time I do my oUF seems to keep messing up where the two face plates just turn gray and cannot see my health rage/mana or my Targets.

Great UI except for this one error

Combo points/Grid

Anyone having problem after updating grid...?

Already posted at wow-lui.com Lui..but people dont always go there to check..

Problem 1..If you update the grid in 3.024..The layout seems to dissapear completely for it..

Problem 2 Combo points are broken..As they are always on they never count anything..Disabling always on makes a black background stick there..Also..Grid player frames are completely black.
I found out that by disabling combo points and relogging (Reloading doesnt fix it)The grid returns to normal colors but of course..No combo point counter.

I didnt post any lua errors cause its like 5am..When i wake up if nothing is fixed i might recheck everything and post the errors that occur.

1.) type /lui
go to Minimap
its either the AlwaysUpFrame or the Capture Bar...

2.) you will keep all your settings.
LUI has no WTF files... so nothing will be overwritten.
So just replace my existing interface folder with the new one?

If you have a problem sure bring it up and if loui see's fit to change it then fine but the bottom line is the problem isnt grid or lui at all the problem is the person if you dont like grid dont use lui its very simple .

Myself i think grid is fine ( used along side clique ) once you get use to it it far exceeds healbot but that is my own opinion.
Yes, you are right. If I don't like grid I don't have to use it...no biggie. However on Loui's website he stated that he was making it to where we could use ANY addon we wanted and take ANY addon we didn't like out. However, atm I am trying out what Loui stated below to my post. If it works great...cause I hope it does.

As far as healbot...healbot is just as bad as grid. Vuhdo is easier to use and has many more features than either grid or healbot.

@Loui Thank you very much for fixing this problem. I know that you are very busy with work, raiding and building this UI. I do appreciate all that you have done, because this is by far the best UI I have EVER seen before. That is why I was so bummed about not being able to use it because of the grid problem. Thank you again!

Well off course you're right with this, but I still wandering about the usage of Recount instead of skada which has the same and more functions and is much more accurate. By the way when I tested skada with the LUI for non-3.3.5 it used 200 KB less resources in ICC 25 than recount does.

And I have to other questions to all here:

1. do you know a way to really hide the chat? I ask because it's possible to hide grid, omen, recount, pallypower the minimap or all together with one click. But there's no way to really hide the chat? The "hide chat" button does only hide the background generated by the Interface but I would like to hide the whole chat-window at once with all tabs and so one and without using Alt+Y you understand?

2. Do you know a way to change the Font for the nameplates of enemies back to Morpheus? I don't meen the UnitFrames but the Nameplates which appears if you click the 'V' key of your Keyboard.

Pre-Thanks for your answers and help (^_^)v
Recount uses about 0.01% CPU Usage while in combat... skada?
Memory Usage is complete unimportant.

And as i said several times.. there will be support for ALL addons (and when i say all... i mean it) with LUI v3.03.

1.) Yes. but there are several problems... i may will add this in the future. (plus an option to choose how the chat will hide)

2.) caelNamePlates have no ingame option Panel... go to the addon folder and edit the lua code if you can (its very simple) or choose any other nameplate addon you prefer most.
