BTEX -- Ice Dragon customized  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.0
by: RosyBijou [More]

This is a skin pack for Tiggy's most awesome Add-on, Btex...
currently being maintained by Sharani


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
and/or
sophie-1.tga, sophie-2.tga, sophie-3.tga & sophie-4.tga

and/or
josie-1.tga, josie-2.tga, josie-3.tga & josie-4.tga
and/or
lila-1.tga, lila-2.tga, lila-3.tga & lila-4.tga
and/or
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.


I have several iterations of the basic four files that are "mix & matchable,"meaning that you can change the blocks for different layouts. I like to experiment with different add-ons and sometimes the layouts that I tinker with don't fit into my set boxes.

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!

v4.0 - July 6, 2010 - added "chris" skin.
-------------------------------------
v4.0 - March 12, 2010 - added "lila" skin.

v3.0 - February 26, 2010 - added "josie" skin.

-------------------------------------
v1.6 - September 29, 2009 - performed repair function using WinRAR & uploaded this version... it still downloads as a corrupted file...
-------------------------------------
v1.5 - September 29, 2009 - used a third zip program to package files - two files were corrupted when I tried downloading into a different computer
-------------------------------------

-------------------------------------

can you help me?
Please accept my apologies for taking so long to answer...

For ChatBar: I use the glass buttons in the options menu. (I think you'll get the menu when you right click on the ChatBar border...)
--Emo is the little chat bubble next to ChatBar: no configuration

The other addons are LDB items:
I use ButtonBin for my LDB display. With this, you can create separate bars and specify where different modules go. This is how I've arranged the different data broker modules across different parts of my screen. Also, I've adjusted different sections to display different amounts of data, (so you can configure each LDB bar individually--if you do this, you want to uncheck the box that makes changes globally ).

--Talent Switch: also in the addon menu, you can customize the text that shows on your DataBroker module.
--zBrokerDurability: no configuration
--LDBThreat: no configuration ((Looking back at this, I didn't like the little skull showing, so I went into the .lua file and removed the code that inserted the picture...)) I've since switched this module out and now use iThreat...

Finally, I use LeafZone for the location display above my map. In my interface, it has own DataBroker bar. No configuration needed.

Hope this helps!

Sure! I believe the one you are interested in is TidyThreat, but here’s a list of what you see in the screenshots…

Visible Addons:
Dominos : bar customization
Recount : data mgmt
Healbot continued : click-casting tool
Decursive : de-cursing tool (check on WowAce or Curse for most current version tho)
Grid : unit frame customization
PhanxChat : chat frame customization
Trav’s Unit Frame Extensions : adds class icons to name plates
Combuctor : bag management
RicoMiniMap : map customization
BTex : artwork for bottom
---BTex Ice Dragon Modules
TipTac : to customize tooltip size, location, etc…
Bison : to customize buff & debuff icons (location, size, etc…)
ChatBar : button display for chat channels
NeonChat : colors chat box based on channel
MiniMap Button Frame : gathers minimap buttons for neat display
DagAssist (continued) : makes available seldom used buttons without taking up bar space
ButtonBin : LDB DataBroker display
---Talent Switch : easy switching for dual specs
---LDB-Threat : threat display
---LeafZone : zone text & coords (LDB bar above map)
---AutoLootToggle : toggles auto loot for solo, party & raid
---CargExplorer : displays percent explored for current zone (LDB bar under map)
---zBrokerDurability : % durability

I use a bunch of other LDB modules that aren’t visible in screenshots for stuff that I like to keep track of but don’t want to have visible all the time—those are set to mouseover at the top of my screen…

Unique to “kerry” screenshot
TidyThreat : threat meter

Unique to “sophie” screenshot
VolumeBar : volume slider/mute button
Emo : fun little emote tool

Because I love to experiment with my interface, you'll see that several of the addons in these screenshots are redundant, (at one time, I had 4 different threat meters running, just to compare...) At this very moment, I use Grid to monitor who's got (and gaining) aggro because I can set thresholds--I have Grid's borders set to change colors based on threat levels...

So, if there's something that you see in the screenshot but you can't find in the list, I may have simply overlooked it because I no longer have it "Favorited"--let me know & I'll try to identify which one....

Any chance you could provide a list of the addons you use in your screenshots please?

I am interested in, what looks to me, the threat meter on the left side of recount.

Thanks.

I use Dominos for my button configuration. I've never used Bartender but have never had an issue with Dominos and love that it sticks to the Blizzard standard action code, (which I think is a big reason why it's so stable)...

Regarding the scaling, do you mean scaling the BTEX skin or the buttons to fit into the skin?
  • If you meant the skin, you can configure it's height, width and axis orientation (if necessary) in the BTEX custom skin screen.
  • If you meant the buttons, I can't help you with Bartender--though Dominos scales with a simple right click on each individual bar, once it's in the configuration mode.

The first two programs that I used to zip are as follows:

Versions 1.0-1.1
I used WinZip
But later realized that it was an outdated version…
I’d never had any problems zipping jpg or psd files and just assumed that it could handle tga files. Thought maybe this was cause…

After zipping, I tested each version by dropping a copy into our network and opening on a different computer—all four tga files unzipped using the windows utility without incident….
However, after being uploaded, I downloaded from WoW Interface and received message that files were corrupted when unpacking them…

Versions 1.2-1.4
Windows default method of right clicking on file
“Send to…”
“Compressed (zipped) folder”

same process above to test—worked fine from network/different computer, but were corrupted after being downloaded…

Versions 1.4-1.6
Downloaded evaluation copy of WinRAR…

Steps with WinRar:
Select file
Click “Add”
In next menu, I chose Archive format of “ZIP” with normal compression method. Left all other options at default
Click OK
The zipped file appears on my desktop
I’m able to open it, both from my computer and from a network computer

Now, with WinRAR, I'm able to use the Repair function, like Silenia recommended, and am able to recover the tga files from the downloaded copy, but it doesn't seem consistent as to how many of the files are recovered--I've been able to recover anywhere from 2-4 of the tga files using this method... (from all of the versions...)

It's making me crazy, that I can't figure out how to do this! It's also very frustrating to have it all working on my end, upload it, only to find that it is indeed still corrupted AFTER being downloaded... I hate that I'm posting bum files!

--------------------------------------
Addendum... (in case someone else has a similar problem): Version 1.7 (current version)
Just for heck of it, I copied the tga files onto a different computer, compressed them with the basic windows utility and uploaded them to WoWI from that computer... IT WORKED! (Since I don't have problems opening zipped files transferred via my home network, I'm wondering if it's a firewall, or other nuisance setting, that's preventing a successful upload from my "main" computer...)

Thanks. Sounds handy. I may add it to my own repetoire.

Thank you, Silenia, for taking the time to help me with this. I will try your suggestions over the next few days...

Using Winrar, open the folder to where you have your zip file. Highlight the zip file and then up at the top in Winrar click on Repair icon. Follow the prompts and you should get a nice clean archived file.

I just tested it with the zip file I downloaded.. used repair and it works fine. I just don't have a way to attach the file here in your thread.
