Yeah to Sharani for updating the base module for this most awesome add-on! (You'll find the link to Tiggy's original files there as well...)
If the "Btex menu" command doesn't work to bring up the skin packs, type "btex custom" and enter your configuration parameters...
First & Foremost:
All artwork credit for this skin must to go to Tiggy & Xaphiroth, as I simply photoshopped the Ice Dragon artwork to accommodate my various add-ons... Ice Dragon comes packaged with the BTex add.
That being said, I did modify the existing artwork so that all of my add-ons had a "home," and have had a few folks request that I upload my modifications.
See the screen shots for subtle variations in the 5 skins included in this pack...
The "lila" and "josie" skins are nearly identical and are specifically tweaked to accomodate RangeDisplay and TomTom -- addons that I found myself constantly moving around the screen--finally decided to give them permanent docks in my interface. If you don't use those two addons, you probably don't want these skins as the text labels are specific... When I'm in a vehicle, the unique vehicle button appears in the in that region as well, courtesy of Dominos... The "Chris" skin is the most basic and thus the most flexible.
You must have BTEX FanUpdate (WowInterface).
****To Install this skin****
Note that it's a little different from most add-ons...
(don't worry, it's easy! )
Before logging into WoW...
Navigate to the BTex skins folder, which is inside your World of Warcraft AddOns folder...
(here's the path from my computer: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Btex\Skins )
Locate & unzip the desired four image files from the downloaded folder...
kerry-1.tga, kerry-2.tga, kerry-3.tga & kerry-4.tga
sophie-1.tga, sophie-2.tga, sophie-3.tga & sophie-4.tga
josie-1.tga, josie-2.tga, josie-3.tga & josie-4.tga
lila-1.tga, lila-2.tga, lila-3.tga & lila-4.tga
chris-1.tga, chris-2.tga, chris-3.tga & chris-4.tga
into the Btex skins folder. See the screenshot to the right to see minor differences between the four skins...
You may also extract the files to your desktop and cut/paste the desired .tga image files into the skins folder...
Log into WoW...
Type "/btex menu" to get the configuration menu.
Choose "<CUSTOM SKIN>..."
Type "kerry" "sophie" or "josie" or "lila"or
"chris in the "set name" box
Select your settings for color/size/transparency and click: apply skin.
You can see how the skin looks by applying different settings before you exit...
(I tweaked the height, colors & transparency to get each of the the "looks" on my screenshots.)
****You should be all set!****
You should now have a new background for Btex.
When that happens, I just rename a couple of tga files to swap in the right "look" and tweak the skin settings... This art pack is titled BTEX -- Ice Dragon Modules, and includes all of those iterations if you'd like to experiment a little more with this theme... (Note that the "josie" and "lila" artwork is not compatible with the modules in that art pack...)
Thank you SO much, Tiggy, for making BTEX available to us, not just to use, but also to fiddle around with, to Xaphiroth for the remake of the Ice Dragon skin... AND to Twistedfury & Sharani for updating the main module!
